2014 In Review

One of the best things about blogging is that you can start a post and save it as a draft and add to it before actually posting it. I started this post, in note form, on January 2, 2014. I have added to it over the course of the year so that I have a …

Catch Up time

I think it is time to play a little bit of catch up here! Remember the Books on Monday post that didn’t happen because of an impromtu visit to DisneyWorld with my eldest daughter? Well, here is a little bit of what happened since then. We only spent two days in the parks – Magic …

Quilting Update

Yes, I have been working on various projects, sometimes simultaneously! So here is the update: Cut the charms for the Twilter charm swap. While I was at it, I decided to cut some 1 1/2 inch strips and store them like Judy Martin recommends – Yes, that is a silverware organizer from Target. I cut …

Quilting Update

Over the past week or so, a lot has happened in the basement/studio! I have been knocking out a few Disappearing Pinwheel blocks and sewing together the first 6 rows (well, maybe it’s the last 6, since I started at the bottom of the design wall) of the Falling Charms quilt as I go. Here …

So, I’ve spent several months just kind of moving along in several areas without really being excited about sewing/quilting.

Catching Up on Sunday!

Yep! That is part of what I finished up yesterday, choosing the block arrangement for this quilt. I’m sorry that the color is not quite true. If only Apple would ship my new phone, I think I could get truer colors with the new flash system, but I’ve got another week or so before it …

Friday Fun

Just a few little pieces of trivial information for you. I made a decision on my Falling Charms Quilt. I’ve decided to go with using all of the colors of the fabric line but separate out the blues and purples kind of like this. I did change some of the fabric order around and cut …

Another Color Option

So, since the previous post color options didn’t really grab me, I played a little more today. First, I took out the yellow and purple colorway and put the blocks in as random an order as possible. Then I put a few of the purple colorway (but I left the yellow and goldish blocks out …

Decisions, Decisions

Yesterday I spent some time downstairs working on my quilt top made with my Cold Spring Dreams charm packs and a white jelly roll. First I finished trimming and pressing all the blocks, and then I started playing around with the layout. You may remember that in this post I wondered if I should use …
