Enjoy These Quilt Museums

Enjoy These Quilt Museums

A ROAD TRIP AND BEAUTIFUL QUILTS

A ROAD TRIP AND BEAUTIFUL QUILTS

Last week I wanted to be outside in the beautiful day, but I really needed to be cutting the pieces for the mystery quilt cut. The “squirrel” won. Um….how about a road trip and beautiful quilts thrown in. After all, there will not be many of these nice days for much longer. Six Christmas quilts were chosen to go along and get their photos taken. We ended up in Sullivan County, Indiana. My trusty side-kicks (AKA hubby and grand-daughter) are…

MY BLUEBERRY DAYS QUILT

MY BLUEBERRY DAYS QUILT

In August 2020 I gathered together all kinds of blue and white scraps. I wanted to make a blue and white “snowball” quilt. I just put the last stitch into the binding.

According to my notes, I cut 224 (6.5″) blue blocks, and 896 (2.5″) white squares for a…

MAINE & USED QUILTING BOOKS

MAINE & USED QUILTING BOOKS

My last post was about the quilting projects I worked on during vacation in Maine. However, I also visited several used books stores. I found some wonderful used quilting books. In my mind, Maine & used quilting books go together. Maybe because of the long snowy winters in Maine, there are many wonderful used books stores to visit. This year I concentrated on finding some used books on quilting. My personal favorites are: Stone Soup Books in Camden, Rockland Library…

Quilting, Relaxation, and Used Books

Quilting, Relaxation, and Used Books

People ask me what I do while in Maine each year on vacation. Well truthfully – not a lot. When the kids were home, vacations involved activities and places the kids would enjoy. However, now that vacation is solo, my vacation is about quilting, relaxation, and used books. Before the question comes up “why do you vacation solo?”, let me answer it. Hubby does not like to travel anymore, and I still do. So he enjoys the quiet time at…

A QUILTER ON THE ROAD AGAIN

A QUILTER ON THE ROAD AGAIN

I have always been ready to travel when the opportunity arises. Quilting and travel seem to fit together fine. So I am a quilter on the road again.

The plan was to make the drive each way a two day trip with overnights in the Wisconsin Dells. Peaceful, quiet time… The other part…

CHRISTMAS IN PARIS 1985

CHRISTMAS IN PARIS 1985

We lived in Germany for five years during the 1980’s. The short version of this story is that I lost the coin flip and we spent Christmas in Paris 1985 (instead of Rome). It was certainly exciting to be in Paris, and we saw all the tourist places during those five days (Arc de Triomphe, Norte Dame, the Louvre Museum, Versailles, Eiffel Tower, etc.). Not to mention walking around downtown and getting lost. Or that my husband got food poisoning….

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…
