COKE TABLE TOPPER & COASTERS

COKE TABLE TOPPER & COASTERS

Small projects are fun to make and give as gifts. This Coke Table Topper & Coasters was started by another quilter, who did not finish it and gave it to me. I know a lady who collects all things Coke and I decided to finish this for her. This also marks the first time I actually bought anything off eBay. The center part of the table topper was complete and in a box of donations I received. I set it…

ARE YOU A HAPPY QUILTER?

ARE YOU A HAPPY QUILTER?

Quilters worldwide make quilts for many reasons. Reasons may include income, for charity or community, for personal satisfaction, as school projects, for therapeutic help, and the list goes on. But the real question is are you a happy quilter? No matter why you quilt, does it bring you joy? Does it improve your life? Do you look forward to your quilting time each day? Like you, I live in the real world. I work full time, clean my home, shop,…

PRAIRIE MEADOW QUILT

PRAIRIE MEADOW QUILT

Scraps, scraps and more scraps. I saw the pattern for this Prairie Meadow quilt in the Winter 2013 Primitive Quilt magazine and thought it would make a pretty wall hanging. I had a shoebox of 2.5″ squares left over from some previous project and thought this would make a simple and easy project to use them up. You will quickly notice that the directions were used as a guide, but my pieces were different sizes based on what I had…

TWO PROJECTS COMPLETED

TWO PROJECTS COMPLETED

I think the UFOs were and are having babies while I am out of the room. I am drowning in quilt projects. It is no one’s fault but mine, but I would like to blame quilt gremlins, or gnomes, or fairy godmothers, or anything but me. But in my own defense, during the last 10 days I have bound and made tags (counted cross stitch) for two wall hangings. Yes, happy dance! Two projects completed! I know many of these…

PADUCAH QUILT SHOW 2023

PADUCAH QUILT SHOW 2023

I meant to share these photos of the Paducah Quilt Show 2023 so much sooner. However, I have been fighting (and loosing?) with my computer the last few weeks. I finally had to break down and replace it. Many of you have also attended this wonderful annual show in Paducah, KY in April. But I know many of you have not been able to go ever, or maybe not this year. It is so fun to attend and be inspired…

A QUILTER’S HUBBY SPEAKS

A QUILTER’S HUBBY SPEAKS

I have been cleaning out and ran across this paper written by my hubby. He intended it for a blog post from his perspective. It is rough and probably not finished, but I am going to share it here. I think what he was attempting to say will ring true for many quilters. And so… A Quilter’s Hubby Speaks. He Speaks: Let me introduce myself.  I am the other half of my better half. This is my first post… EVER,…

SMILES FOR QUILTERS

SMILES FOR QUILTERS

All of us have rough days or weeks. It is nice to take a few minutes to be light-hearted and just grin and/or chuckle. I found these fun memes and pictures on either Pinterest or Bing clip art. Enjoy these smiles for quilters. Smiles for Quilters: Smiles for all of us: And Finally: Life is stressful, and sometimes not very fun. I think most of us have reached the limit of our tolerance for the news, politicians of all types,…

BIRTHDAY APRONS

BIRTHDAY APRONS

Do you need a fun, fast, and simple project or gift item? My granddaughter’s eighth birthday is next week. She loves helping in the kitchen. I decided to use some cute fabrics from my stash and make her a couple aprons. Thanks to YouTube, I was able to make the birthday aprons. Those of you who know me personally know that I absolutely hate making any clothing item. Yes, I can make clothing, but that doesn’t mean I like to…

SUPPORT YOUR LOCAL QUILT SHOP

SUPPORT YOUR LOCAL QUILT SHOP

It is a fantastic privilege to have a local quilt shop in any area. Sure, they are more expensive than a box store, but so worth it. Better service, better quality fabric and other supplies, help and mentoring, and real classes. Plus, the money you spend there helps a local business help local residents. There are so many reasons to support your local quilt shop. SHOP LOCALLY! I live in rural central Indiana. Within an hour drive there are three…

BOOKS ABOUT SMALL QUILTS

BOOKS ABOUT SMALL QUILTS

Small quilts are fun to make and display. After going thru my personal library, I realized that there were not many books for small quilts and displaying them. So, I went on a hunt to find books about small quilts. Maybe you are thinking about making small quilts or are already making them. But we always need more ideas, right? I was able to find these three books at a local quilt shop. Books about Small Quilts: Vintage Treasures by…
