End of the Line with the Wovens

Quilt in blue, green, gray, and purple shades

In an earlier post found here, I mentioned the fact that three of the quilt patterns I used/completed this year had the word “woven” in them. Those patterns were named Woven Star, Woven Double Wedding Ring and Woven Links. The first two were completed last spring. Janni’s Woven Star Megan’s & Madison’s Woven Double Wedding …

The Other Finish

My second finish of the quarter caused me to be a quilt sweatshop for 3 or 4 weeks. (It had taken longer to finish the first quilt than I had expected and the second quilt had a strict deadline.) But all’s well that ends well, so this story has a happy ending. The second finish …

Megan’s & Madison’s Woven Double Wedding Ring

The neverending hand quilting project ended and was delivered about a month ago. Then it was full speed ahead on the paper pieced quilt for my niece and her fiance. (Just for the record, I do not recommend that your first paper pieced project include 256 paper pieced sections, most having seven different areas to …

Yes, It Has Been Awhile

Yes, blogging was interrupted by the whole quilt sweatshop thing I had going on here for a while. Yep, 8-10 hours a day paper piecing, stopping only to eat. But I did finish the top, got it to the longarmer, and got it back in plenty of time to bind it and wrap it up …

Too Much Quilting Going On

Did I get you with that title? Is that ever possible? Whatever could I mean by that? Well, I’ll tell you! I have been spending 3-6 hours a day working on paper piecing my niece’s wedding quilt. (Yes, I procrastinated!) While I quilt, I listen to all my favorite quilty podcasts. When I spend this …

Paper Piecing

I am starting to get the hang of paper piecing and feeling a bit less negative about it, I think. I started out hating it. I’m still not sure how much of it I will do, aside from things like Mariner’s Compass and other very complicated quilts. And I’m pretty sure (but never say never, …

Q2 Finish-a-long Goals

Yes, I know that I didn’t participate in the First Quarter Finish-a-long hosted by Rhonda at Quilter in the Gap. I knew there was no way that I was going to finish anything. This quarter I know that there are two queen-sized quilts that must be finished by mid-May. I have no choice. I sort …

So this is just a brief post to catch you up on what I’ve been doing lately. Mostly at home I’ve been working on finishing the quilting on this: I am actually on the last border row so it looks more like I will be done with the hand quilting by tomorrow! Yay! I have …

BOM Block 12 Finish

Yes, I just finished the American Beauty BOM block 12! This is the last actual block, but there is much sashing and setting triangles stuff to still be completed before the top is completed. Which brings up some questions in my mind. Questions such as: Do I use this as my hand sewing at work …

I would like to thank everyone who sympathizes with my disappointment with the whole FabShop Hop thing. Even if you didn’t leave a comment, I appreciate your sympathy or empathy or something. So here I am at work (actually having a busy day, comparatively speaking) without anything to sew. I think the next block I …
