10 more days till Christmas! (Friday Foto Fun #10)

Is it too late to finally put decorations out around the house?  Our house is decoration-less at the moment and it feels more like January…cold and not very festive! I feel like I’m in denial that Christmas is coming.  I haven’t really worked on any of my Christmas-y projects this fall except the I Wish You a Merry QAL quilt.  Maybe next year right?!  Anyways…I...

Tru Inspiration! (Friday Foto Fun #9)

This week I was traveling for work in Murfreesboro, Tennessee and I stayed at Tru, a new Hilton brand family hotel. It’s a really trendy hipster more affordable hotel.  I saw inspiration for quilts everywhere with all the bright colors and designs throughout the hotel.  My favorite was this amazing wallpaper.  I actually want to make this into a quilt! (Who would have guessed?  It...

Quilter’s Block 10

Quilter’s Block

I feel I have a quilting version of Writer’s Block…so Quilter’s Block? The cause is Pattern #103, but I’m not quite sure why I’m not able to make progress on it.  It’s not technically a hard block, and it looks amazing in the simulated photos, like nothing I’ve seen done before. But why can’t I seem to get myself to make progress and actually work...

Who’s Accountable?

Did anyone catch last week that I didn’t finish sewing my basket case quilt top like I said I was going to?  After I posted last week’s post, I noticed I didn’t ever do that.  So I sat down and started sewing immediately to get that done even if I was a day or two late.  I’ve gotten comments about how people like my weekly...

Perfectly Imperfect

1 Day before QuiltCon East!

I leave for QuiltCon tomorrow, and I am so excited to go!  I feel a little bad I signed up for so many classes…I was one of the lucky ones that was able to get into all their classes before the registration site crashed last summer.  But I am so ready to LEARN all the things!  One of the classes I’m taking is called “You...

Dream Quilting

  In the last week, I’ve had like 4 nights in a row of dreaming about the Chic Country quilt.  The dream ends up being about the same every time; I debate for what seems like forever about fabric choices and always end up with a black and white quilt with a pink pop of color. The Pink is the Kona Color of the Year...

Winter Quiltfest 2017 Recap

Winter Quiltfest 2017 was absolutely one of the most fun weekend retreats I’ve ever been to!  It was my first quilting retreat, but that doesn’t matter; it was AMAZING!  I did the whole package for Winter Quiltfest; I arrived Wednesday afternoon and stayed all the way until Sunday.  I took 5 different classes and learned all sorts of different techniques.  The organizers for the event...
