and the results were very good. But first your daily ear worm: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2X_2IdybTV0 https://www.instagram.com/p/6h8ZE7NvkX/ This (Friday) day started with great intention: turn on the a/c in the sewing room and quilt.

Stash building

I've deliberately destashed over the last few years letting go of fabrics that were once intended for tote bags. While these fabrics meant something for the tote bags they were not fabrics I'd use in quilts. It was work to be sure and worth the effort. What remains is fabrics I will use in quilts.… Continue reading Stash building

Whole Cloth Update

There is nothing quite so comforting as listening to the sewing machine as I quilt. It's a beautiful sound. As I look at this update and think about the comments on facebook and think about another project I'm working on (I think a lot!).

Whole Cloth Challenge update

This morning I read Terry Grant's post One of my greatest achievements is not being perfect with great interest. I nodded in agreement as she talked of choosing just the right color of paint for a room based on a swatch of fabric, finally settling for "close enough". Rather than stressing out over the color… Continue reading Whole Cloth Challenge update

Whole Cloth Challenge – post #3

shhh don't tell anyone but my whole cloth quilts have come to a screeching halt. it's okay though this is part of my process, a life long kind of thing - procrastination Because I'm doing two quilts I will be making more of a time investment in planning them out. Like in the next week… Continue reading Whole Cloth Challenge – post #3

a good day quilting

The last couple of days I've been piecing and quilting like a quilter.  Crazy I know. It's been fun. I'm loving my B 780 more than ever. In part because I had a total ditzy moment today while piecing the quilt top. I put the #46 C foot on to make some piping for this… Continue reading a good day quilting
