A first quilt!

IMG_3339Quilting Tangent wrote to me and told me that she had used the same block as my “Stars on Ice Quilt” (see more HERE. )

An amazing Quilter!

When I was astounded that was a block she used for her FIRST quilt – she sent me pictures and this is what she said, “Yes, my first quilt was hand pieced, queen size and reversible.  I got a machine, figured out how to use it and did the quilting with a vine stitch the machine had.  Took forever!  Now I’m trying to learn to piece on the machine, a lot different then hand sewing..” Continue reading

Travelling to a quilt show and quilting at home

We had a fun bus trip to Monroe Washington to see all the quilts on display.  Wow oh, WOW!!!  There were over 500 quilts … tons of eye candy … I took a picture of only a fraction of them.  Click on the slideshow below to see what I took pictures of.  Of course, I took pictures of every single Bonnie Hunter design I could find!  🙂   I also included the description of each quilt … usually following the quilt, but some of them came before the quilt …  I’m sure you’ll figure it out!

One came out …


Out of the container, that is.

This is my #3 UFO … It’s come a little ways since I took the picture on the right in December.  It came out of the container.  I finished the blocks and put a border on it.  I was going to add an additional blue border, but then it will be too big for my coffee table … sew … I’m going to use the cut dark blue border material for the binding.  This table runner was suppose to be finished in 2017 for a swap at our annual Over the Rainbow retreat … hmmm … guess it’s missed it’s chance for the swap!  That’s OK … I like it, hubby likes it and it will be pretty on the coffee table.


Now to sandwich it, quilt it, bind it and call it done!  Hopefully, I can show you the finished runner soon!

Happy Quilting!

The March Island Batik project is sandwiched!  The theme for this month is “Vintage Reimagined.”  It is a fun theme to work with!   I used these fabrics on the right!!!  Oh – what a joy it is to use this beautiful fabric!!!  I’ll show you more when it’s quilted.
