Inspiring Quilters, Stitch by Stitch
Hello fellow quilting fanatics. This has been a very busy month around the Leiner household. We sold one rental house and bought two more so I have been kept from my quilting by landlady duties. But I am happy to report that I am making progress on the quilt for Beck and Todd, the quilt that has stymied me all…Continue
My quilting friend, Riana Noyes asked me to do a post on the Halloween cross stitch quilt which is #108 in my albums. The following are pictures and some explanations/descriptions of how that quilt came to be.
First the back story. I have been quilting since I was 18 years old. I had my first child, Jamie at 23 and my second, Becky at 27. All through their childhood, I was making quilts and once upon a time, cross stitching as well. in 1984 or 85 I decided to do a Christmas…Continue
I know I have been incommunicato for awhile but I have been busy quilting! Here is the most recent quilt I finished just tonight, a few scant hours before Halloween. No, you are not crazy, this is a Christmas quilt. Sometimes, we just don't get to choose the timing of when things get accomplished.
I the winter is coming upon us, I pretty much achieved a goal... I cleaned out my basement and organized nearly everything! Nearly organized enough to buy a different house... Plastic containers are my friends... it's been hard work, but now Im at the end of this haul....
I made a few dresses this summer, and a tunic... now I want to start on a wall hanging. I am hoping all my planning will make for smooth transitions so I can continue on my path!
Looking forward to a more…Continue
Hello Campers! Welcome to spring and are you all busy on your quilt projects? I am supposed to be working on my 2nd Daughter, Becky's wedding quilt (they will be married five years next weekend - I am a bit behind) and it has been a challenge from the get-go. We picked out the fabric last spring during a visit to her house in Plano, Texas. Here are the fabrics:…Continue
hi, I am an Irish quilter but get to visit to Longview Tx to visit family regularly . I will be there soon mid/end April and wonder if there are any quilt events or exhibits within travelling distance I could take in on this visit. I would be delighted to hear of ideas but don't want to travel too far either. I am interested in all types of quilting and find sewing a perfect way to relax after busy days and weeks of work.
We are a few weeks into the second half of my quilt show and here is the youtube video from the second half. I talk about two quilts in particular, Mosaic Wedding Quilt which belongs to my nephew and neice-in-law in Oak Park Illinois and Topography of a Marriage, the lastest wedding quilt for Tom and Artemis Vasilou, my unofficial third daughter. Here they are:…Continue
Hello Campers! Back at it again after a short hiatus. Life set me back abit between my father's passing and all the family visits this winter. I visited daughter Becky and granddaughter Sylvia in early February and daughter Jamie and grandson Wyatt were out here in…Continue
I have started finishing the hand quilting on a workshop piece from 2004.
In the meantime I was playing with hearts and made too many - so I have quilt labels and hearts for quick gifts down the road....I started playing with the disappearing 4 patch blocks in pinks & purples - grand daughter's favorite colors - her birthday is in June... So I will make her a lap sized quilt... I think I have a Problem! The hearts were addicting and the fast completion of the 4 patch blocks is…Continue

I was on Pinterest and saw a quilt made using the cut-through technique. It appeared on a Nancy Crow site. I have searched and haven't found information regarding the technique. I don't know if it is a cutting and sewing technique or merely a name for the appearance of the block. Below is a picture of the block, attributed to Ellin Larimer. Can anyone help? Thanks, Diana…Continue
Well a lot has happened since last I posted anything! We had to put our 80 acre ranch up for sale & are currently in Apache Junction, AZ looking for a place of our own. It's proving more difficult than we had anticipated; Tom, my husband needs a 'shop' and I need a "studio" in a newer home but so far have not been able to find one that suits 'both' of us. Either he is satisfied & I am not, or vise a versa. But we will continue to look. You may recall that Tom had built me a…Continue
