quilting

I’m leaving to spend time with my middle daughter and my Lil Dude. Look at this face! I can’t wait to see it and cover it with kisses and smooshes. He’s a little monkey. He’s going to be Curious George for Halloween. I made him a small cuddle-and-drag-around quilt.

My pillow for the PTS9 (Pillow Talk Swap) is finally finished and out the door today to its recipient. I title it “Edgar the Poe Pillow”. I have liked the sort of freaky works of Poe since I was a little girl. I enjoy the traditional dresden mixed up a bit. I especially love hand […]

Dresden quilt block

I have been hanging onto a stack of these Dresden blocks. I bought them at a vintage goods store. All are made from 1930’s/1940’s fabrics. Originals, not reproductions. Someone lovingly cut and pieced them together…unplugged. I think they were assembled incorrectly because I can’t seem to turn the edges evenly to applique {I think I […]

Now that the Urban Home Goods Swap {UHGS} is done and my partner, Jamie, received what I made I thought it was time to show and tell. I started with the above sewn together strips. Then chopped them up. Added a little embellishment And Voila! A sewing machine cover!

Or is it buried under fabric? Been a bit out of it with my lovely head so I am trying to focus my time on the projects I need to complete.

Good Morning on You! Did a little mindless sewing yesterday… that’s what I do as I plan {or procrastinate} bigger projects. This is an overdue gift for an anonymous recipient. A Rug. A Mug Rug. Everyone needs one! Every quilter probably has one… except me. I want to keep this but alas I will be […]
