PARIS BLOOMS & GARDENS

PARIS BLOOMS & GARDENS

I found Paris themed fabrics. The colors are lovely, and I just had to buy some yardage. It took a few months to come up with an idea for how to use this fabric. I felt like something spring and the result is Paris Blooms & Gardens. I made five English paper pieced flowers from hexagons in colors that complimented the black and white Paris fabric. They are hand pieced and appliqued to the blocks. The alternate blocks are a…

PICKET FENCE QUILTS

PICKET FENCE QUILTS

Way back in the 1990’s my quilting buddy (SB) sent me this quilt pattern. I do not know where she got it, but we decided to make a charm quilt with it. We traded fabrics and challenged each other not to let this quilt become a UFO. I made 4 quilts with this pattern. I thought I would share the Picket Fence Quilts with you. The Picket Fence Charm Quilt: I pieced this Picket Fence Charm Quilt during 1995-97. There…

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…

WISHING I WAS FISHING

WISHING I WAS FISHING

This quilt was made by me many years ago with much love for the recipient. My (step)dad was an avid fisherman, and we ate many wonderful trout and salmon meals over the years he was alive. Wishing I was Fishing describes this hard-working man’s hobby. The original post on my old blog gave the most basic of info on the quilt for this wonderful man. The back story: This widower came into our lives at church. He was a quiet…

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…

SHOW OFF YOUR PATRIOTISM WITH QUILTS

SHOW OFF YOUR PATRIOTISM WITH QUILTS

This is time of year to bring out all those patriotic quilts – in any mix of red, white, and blue. It is the birthday of the USA so those of us who live in the US should celebrate our wonderful country (no, it is not perfect, but then neither are any of us). Show off your patriotism with quilts. Each of us have favorite holidays, and here in the US there are plenty to pick from and decorate for….

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…

PIECING TOGETHER AMERICA

PIECING TOGETHER AMERICA

One of my heroes is George Washington. When I found these George Washington printed blocks at the quilt show in Paducah, I had to have them. No idea what I would do with them then, but eventually some of them were worked into this wall hanging Piecing Together America. Construction I chose older looking fabrics in brown, blue, gray, and red to cut the 3″ squares from. The first step was making the patchwork from 3″ squares. I choose to…

HARVEST BOUNTY

HARVEST BOUNTY

Back in 2020, I was curious about doing something for a quilt in rectangles. Years ago, I saw a nine-patch quilt from rectangles instead of squares. Ok, not really what I was looking for, but the idea of rectangles stayed in the back of my mind. So, this is how I ended up with Harvest Bounty. I still had scraps galore and a stash to work out of. So, one day in July 2020, I started cutting 4″ x 7″…

LOVE THOSE IRISH CHAINS

LOVE THOSE IRISH CHAINS

Can you believe it is almost St. Patrick’s Day? The year of 2023 is flying by. However, as quilters we love those Irish Chains patterns and designs. Simple and elegant. Or homey and comfortable.

This is the perfect quilt for beginner quilters, or any quilter wanting an easy pattern to make. Best of all,…
