Inspiring Quilters, Stitch by Stitch
I'll get around to adding pictures someday. Today I'm making sure I can get these buttons to work. Monday I should receive quilts from "Guilts of Valor" that will be quilted by me. At this time I'm learning the "movement part for these quilts." Going to the web site and finding out who gets the quilt after the quilting is done. Our "wounded warriors" deserve so much, anyone else here want to help out? If so let me know.
I am new to the blog. I love seeing all the beautiful quilts that have been posted. Love the ability to communicate with other quilters.

This 6" Broken Sugar Bowl block is part of my Farmer's Daughter Quilt, made to go with my grandmother's 1916 diary entry…Continue

Joe’s parents, Peter and Hannah, lived in a dugout before building this house featured with this blog. (A larger home was built on their farm before I was born, so I was never in the original home.)
We were frequent visitors to Joe and Aunt Julia Olson’s house…Continue
Just finished my Jelly Roll Race Quilt. This was so much fun at our guild retreat a few weeks ago. You really MUST try this!
I made a journal of this project on QuiltNotes Jelly Roll Race Quilt #1 Journal
Good morning Campers!
We are back home from the California trip which included a multi-day celebration of our grandson Wyatt's birthday and the delivery of the Road to California quilt to his parents. Being with a toddler is exhausting! So glad my daughter and son-in-law are raising him and not me.
Here are some pictures of Wyatt discovering the wonderful and colorful world of quilts.
Have a super day.…Continue

So this is how far I got on my lovely batik project last weekend. I decided one fabric doesn't quite work, so have to decide what to replace it with. I think this will be stunning when done. The weekend is here again and I am home, a little under the weather. Hope to have this top all pieced soon. That is if I can get…Continue
The pattern is called Popsicle Sticks. As a new quilter, I misread the pattern and ended up needing a second jelly roll of Moda Terrain. This quilt was going to be for me, however, my husband is not crazy about all the eclectic prints and colors, so I'm thinking I'll give it to my niece for her college graduation. It's a work in process right now, but hope to finish it by May, 2012. The quilt is 5 rows long. More pictures when it's done! (The white things are notes saying which row and…Continue
I needed a baby blanket QUICK and found a post from Quilting in the Rain so got to work! It really is easy, and was my first try at double sided fusible web (which I then used on my Christmas placemats - love that stuff!). Check out her site; I can't find the picture of the blanket I made, but her's is much better anyway!

I saw this pattern in a quilt store in Mason, MI and HAD to make some Christmas placemats! First, I did a trial with the orange, green, etc. placemats and gave them to our church for their "Grannie's Attic" sale. Then, having perfected the pattern, I did the Christmas placemats to keep. Second time around, I chose the easier pattern option. Can you see the difference?…Continue

I have promised myself I wouldn't buy new fabric until I made a serious effort to use up my old fabric....how stupid was that? Not at all! As new as I am to quilting I seem to have a healthy collection of unused stuff that I would not likely use any time soon, the stuff I bought for "just in case". But what happens is the same as when I'm down to a few random groceries and have to use what I have..I always come up with an amazing dinner! This fabric hiatus has brought out my creative…Continue
You made me laugh! The four quilts I have just posted pictures of, Becky's Cat Quilt, the Kitchen Quilt, the Ligonier Valley Historical Society Quilt, and Becky's Baby Ducks Quilt are all quilts I have made in the past and which Becky, my youngest daughter, now owns and keeps in her house in Plano Texas, where I was visiting last week. She also owns the School/Apple cross stitch quilt. We just took new pictures of the four quilts in March 2012 in her backyard. I have set up albums for each…Continue
I’ve been going through old photos recently and sorting them (and my memories) by the decades they were taken. It’s interesting to see the old “Butter in the Well” house in the background. They were all snapshots of everyday life at that moment, and now so many memories…Continue
Well, Road to California is finally done and other than showing it off to my friends here in Pennsylvania, there is nothing more to do but pack it up and take it with us down the road to California this weekend. As is my usual practice, the closer I got to the end of the quilt, the more fanatic I got about finishing it. As my dear husband said to my California daughter (the recipient of the quilt) when asked what we were doing this (past) weekend, "Well, your mother is working on the…Continue
So, after 13 years of quilting, I have in the past year purchased a long arm quilter and now am working with a contractor to turn half my garage into a quilting studio. So, in the next 6 months or so, I will say goodbye to "I can't cut fabric now, we're expecting company for dinner and need the dining room table" and hello to "I can shut the door and the world won't see my fabric strewn all over." This is heaven enough, but, the other day the contractor said "I can build you…Continue
