FLOCK OF CHRISTMAS GEESE

FLOCK OF CHRISTMAS GEESE

One of my goals for this year is to finish binding and tagging 9 quilts that need just that. Well, this quilt is the second one completed, and I am doing a happy dance! This Flock of Christmas Geese is an easy project to make. This simple wall hanging was made over a weekend in April 2021, and machine quilted in November 2021. Then it stayed in a pile of UFOs waiting on binding and a tag. Making a Flock…

YIPPEE!! A UFO COMPLETE

YIPPEE!! A UFO COMPLETE

As of January 7, 2023, I finally put the last stitch in the binding of the Bonnie Hunter mystery quilt from 2020. It was one of the quilts in my post last week that needed to be bound. Yippee!! A UFO complete. This lovely quilt came back from the machine quilter. I trimmed up the edges and got it ready to bind. Then I got distracted by some other project. Yep, it suddenly became a quilting UFO. Shame on me….

CAN YOU BE A FRUGAL QUILTER?

CAN YOU BE A FRUGAL QUILTER?

Over the years, I have met many quilters. Lots of them admit to being frugal to make their quilting budget stretch further. I watched, asked questions, and can agree that it is possible to be a frugal quilter. I always encourage quilters to stick to their budget. However, buy the best fabric, tools and sewing machine that the budget can handle. Choosing to be a frugal quilter means there is little or no waste – time, supplies, or fabric. However,…

WHAT OTHER QUILTERS ARE DOING

WHAT OTHER QUILTERS ARE DOING

Do you ever wonder what other quilters are doing? Curiosity wins out sometimes. Reading quilt blogs is one of those quilt related activities that can be entertaining, inspiring, and educational. I have a long list of other quilting blogs that I enjoy checking on periodically. This past week has been one of those “sometimes”. I am not much for social media, but I enjoy reading blogs. Or maybe curious is a better way to describe it. What other quilters are…

TRIBUTE TO MY MOM-IN-LAW

TRIBUTE TO MY MOM-IN-LAW

I want to pay tribute to a fantastic woman who recently died. We all need encouragers in our lives, and she was marvelous at being one. She was a wonderful woman in her own right, and I am so thankful she was part of my life. Her obit talks so much about her life, but they also leave so much out. I would like to take a few minutes to do a tribute to my mom-in-law—from myself as a quilter….

Easy Courthouse Steps

Easy Courthouse Steps

Over the years I have learned all kinds of ways to utilize strips of fabric. I tend to use 2.5″ wide strips and keep several plastic organizer totes full of them. But sometimes it is fun to use a different size. This Easy Courthouse Steps mini quilt is made of 1.5″ purple and orange cotton strips. I did not add borders. This small quilt is 22.5″ x 29.25″ finished. All cotton fabric scraps and a left-over piece of poly batting….

AUTUMN QUILTING IN RURAL INDIANA

AUTUMN QUILTING IN RURAL INDIANA

Here in central Indiana autumn has arrived. Temps have been much cooler in the last two weeks. Farmers are busy harvesting corn and soybeans. Leaves are turning from green into glorious autumn colors. Our first frost of the season is predicted for this week. And the wood stove has been going in the evenings. A great time for settling in and doing autumn quilting in rural Indiana. I have spent the last few evenings reading other quilt blogs, enjoying their…

AUTUMN TABLE RUNNER

AUTUMN TABLE RUNNER

Do you need a quick and easy project to decorate for fall? It could not get simpler than this Autumn Table Runner. Table runners are great projects for trying out a new pattern or technique.  The size and small number of needed blocks makes them perfect for beginner quilters too. And it is a great way to try out color combinations, and machine vs. hand quilting. Autumn is my favorite season. I love the colors, the weather, and the activities…

MEMORY LANE OF VINTAGE QUILTS

MEMORY LANE OF VINTAGE QUILTS

I needed some inspiration for a small, quilted project this week. This led to going through my scrap books of quilts that I have made or quilted. Which led to “walking” down a memory lane of vintage quilts. Come along with me. Maybe you will get an idea or two for a quilt project. Background for these quilts For many years I had a hand quilting service. It was a great way to make some extra money while being home…
