Web Piecing Tutorial

I am participating in a blog hop in a few weeks with some very awesome ladies in the Stitching Stars Blog Hop next month.  The grand prize giveaway is going to be a quilt made from blocks from the participants.  Such a great giveaway prize, I can’t wait to have everyone see the finished product.  Here is a sneak peak of the blocks I made...

Is it Spring yet?

I hope everyone had a great holiday and spent it well with friends and family.  It’s this time of year right after the holidays where I am over the snow and wish it were Spring.  The only thing that is nice this year is being off of work the week between Christmas and New Year.  Lots of quilting going on in my house with lots...

Sew Pro All Stars Blog Hop

Hello from Shanghai!  I’m traveling for my day job this week, but I couldn’t pass up the opportunity to do a Blog Hop with the fabulous group I attended Sew Pro with!  And today’s the day!  I’m so happy to introduce to you my very first pattern inspired by my Sew Pro attendance this past September.  This pattern is called “Spinning Vectors” for the spinning...

Anyway I got my Quilter’s Planner yesterday and...

Why Quilting?

There were a lot of firsts last week for me.  I completed my first original design quilt top and also finished the largest quilt I’ve made to date.  With both of these accomplishments in one week, it’s made me want to reflect on why I started quilting.  It’s a good reminder, as I transition into making more of the same original design quilt top and start...

Quilting has taken over 3 rooms. Yes, THREE.

So this quilting thing has expanded to 3 of the 4 bedrooms upstairs.  The only other bedroom is the master bedroom where we sleep. Therefore, I think I have to thank my husband for allowing me to temporarily take an additional 2 rooms outside of my sewing room.  I used the floor of one of the rooms to lay out the Moroccan Getaway quilt.  With all...
