MY HINTERBERG QUILT FRAME

MY HINTERBERG QUILT FRAME

MY HINTERBERG QUILT FRAME: People ask me frequently about my quilt frame. I love this frame and am very proud of it. I purchased this frame in the spring of 1990. It is rock maple. The website for Hinterberg is: https://www.hinterberg.com/default.aspx The bars are 92-93″ long and it can be dismantled to transport or to move around at home. It also has a tilt feature but I like to use it flat. I love having my hands free. It is…

PERSONAL QUILT SHOW & ROAD TRIP

PERSONAL QUILT SHOW & ROAD TRIP

PERSONAL QUILT SHOW & ROAD TRIP – The corona virus is getting to all of us it seems. I love being home and able to do things here. But after a week of “quarantine” even I needed a change of scenery this past Tuesday. My husband had the day off and so we decided to do a road trip to see if we could see any barn quilts. I also thought it would be nice to take along some quilts…

SCRAP BONANZA #1

Scrap Bonanza #1 (AKA a quarantine quilt) top is done !!! And I managed to go from 4 scrap bins to 3 after completing this top !!!!!! Yippee…… This top started two or three years ago with sewing together scrap Birds in the Air blocks from 3″ squares sewn into HST. A complete block took 16 HST.

STAYING BUSY THURSDAY 03/19/2020

STAYING BUSY THURSDAY 03/19/2020

This week has been really out-of-sorts…maybe just flat out weird. I am not a person to continually have the news on anytime nor do I live on social media. My thing is to be able to see something accomplished at the end of the day – yep, I am a visual kind of person. In my mind I titled today “Staying Busy Thursday”. I am admitting that I did not take photos today as I worked on items. I am…

QUILTING DURING A CRISIS

QUILTING DURING A CRISIS

The past few days have been interesting to say the least when it comes to the media panic over corona virus and how people around the USA are re-acting. I live in a rural area and am currently working from home instead of traveling for work. Any excuse for taking time to quilt is always good, but quilting during a crisis is productive and helps relieve the stress. I want to encourage you to take care of yourself including eating…

3 MORE QUILTING BOOKS

3 MORE QUILTING BOOKS

Books, books, books….3 more quilting books. I love having a personal library of books in general, but quilting books specifically especially when I suddenly have an idea or even need an idea for a quilt. Or a part of a quilt. It is very helpful when I want to check directions or look at color choices for a quilt. Today I am going to share 3 more quilting books from my personal library. I am currently working on 30 spool…

ROAD TRIP FOR FABRIC

ROAD TRIP FOR FABRIC

Last week I had a chance to combine work and a road trip for fabric !!! I was in Washington, IN for the day. Instead of eating lunch I made a fast trip into the Stitching Post for some fabric I had already perused on the website for a planned project. See here: https://stitchingpostquilts.com/index.html I haven’t been anywhere close to this store in a year or two. It has been here many years and always has an outstanding amount and…

QUILT SHOW – POWELL, WYOMING 1994

QUILT SHOW – POWELL, WYOMING 1994

Quilt shows come in all themes, sizes and locations. I had the opportunity of enter quilts in the Quilt Show of Powell, Wyoming in 1994. While many people would not consider this a big quilt show, it was fun and easy to enter. A nice thing about my own (or your own) quilts hanging in a show is that they are seen from a totally different perspective than on the bed or wall of home. Before moving to central Indiana…
