Last night I had the privilege of walking the Quilt Festival vendor floor for a couple of hours before I left for home. More on that in a moment. Wednesday began with the lecture, Quilting Motifs and Color, that I was certain was at 10 but was actually at 9 and it was at 9… Continue reading The Big Ask
Happy Wednesday Friends! I posted this on one of the social media channels yesterday: Musings over coffee:Quilting is a gift filled with promise, hope, simplicity, complexity, beauty, hot messness. Each one of us gets to show the sublime uniqueness of our self, it is sometimes incredibly vulnerable and sometimes guarded like a castle surrounded by… Continue reading Coming Soon!
So here it is, The Quilter on Fire Podcast with Brandy https://quilteronfire.com/podcast/Maslowski. Brandy has a YouTube channel that has a preview and a bit of behind the scenesness of it all. Oh My Goodness to say I'm excited it something of an understatement. Each interview I've done promoting Color, Thread & Free-Motion Quilting is different,… Continue reading Well, I was going to do a Countdown!
One of the things I do on the Kizer and Bender posts is write long hashtags when I've had enough coffee. I believe a hashtag needs to be used so many times before it comes up in searches so I don't know if it'll show up but search for #teriwriteslonghashtags. Even the hashtags from my… Continue reading Wherein I have a good laugh
Learn to Stitch with Reckless Abandon Keith Dommer alerted to to this being on Amazon for pre-purchase. Keith is so much part of this book. So of course the first thing I did was do a couple of social media posts. While with Generation Q Magazine I loved doing cover reveal posts as what went… Continue reading Cover Reveal: Color, Thread, & Free-Motion Quilting
Meeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee TerifiCreations started at the dining room table in Americus, Georgia during my first year as a volunteer at Habitat for Humanity. Having easy access to paper, coloring pencils, a few well chosen stencils, a bit of a creative bent and a desire to give unique birthday cards and not a lot of cash made… Continue reading Happy Thirteenth Anniversary to…
I commented to a friend that BUILD is such a great word for 2019, at least for me. This morning while working on what my day will look like I hit this moment of overwhelm that nearly stopped me in my tracks. Said friend reminded me to take a deep breath, and that I can… Continue reading Build
Welcome to the Quilted Block of the Month for January 2018. We're going to have a good time exploring Letha's Electric Fan, I'm thinking this will be the block for February as well. This block has been on my "list" of blocks to make since I first saw it about 9 years ago because the… Continue reading Quilted Block of the Month January 2018
Way back when, not so very long ago, in something that seems a whole other lifetime ago I started making an artistic color wheel. It all started when I was writing a book on how I use color, then life got in the way, the wind got knocked out of my sails, the book got… Continue reading Oh Color Me Happy
Bonus Edition This is one of the blocks I quilted when I was trying to write a book on free motion machine quilting. Step 1: Cut two 10'' squares of cotton fabric, layer with batting. Step 2: Quilt. This sounds wildly simplistic and rather annoying. I get it. But, it's what I did, and do.… Continue reading Quilted Block of the Month August 2017
