I meant to do this, but did that instead

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. In order to achieve this great goal I needed to step down into the office for a bit to send a few emails. The… Continue reading I meant to do this, but did that instead

Quilting with Intention

Donna Morales-Oemig your fabric still speaks to my heart. Donna snow dyed a few pieces of Robert Kaufman's Radiance in the 2014/2015 winter when eastern Massachusetts got over 100 inches of snow. The perfect project came along, an idea with it and I started stitching. I haven't really quilted in a long time.  Oh I've… Continue reading Quilting with Intention

Decided to go ahead and do it!

I don't remember if I ever showed the full piece. A little taupe Radiance, a little silk batting, a little Superior Tiara Silk. Oh my. Have you seen this gorgeous variegated 50 weight silk thread? When they have the Tiara in the booth there will be a good chance that this little piece is in… Continue reading Decided to go ahead and do it!

Maria is a fab quilter and teacher in her own right (she teaches at the City Quilter).  Maria posted this photo on fb… Continue reading Swoon and Whole Cloth Challenge Update

Whole Cloth Challenge Update

Lisa posted a couple of Whole Cloth updates on her blog. I appreciate her honesty and admire her tenacity in learning how to free motion on her BERNINA 750. I'd feel quite the same on the long arm, in part because no matter what kind of machine we quilt on there is a learning curve… Continue reading Whole Cloth Challenge Update

Whole cloth challenge and choosing fabric

Seriously I just wanted to post this picture again it just makes me happy. I realized too there is a color missing here. I have 3 yards of sky (baby) blue too. I don't know how I missed that. The other day when I posted this I was choosing between the copper and the purple,… Continue reading Whole cloth challenge and choosing fabric

Chocolate Swirl

Sunday was a fruitful day indeed. Let's go back to Saturday, okay let's go back a bit further. After making @play I knew I wanted to make another quilt loosely based on that design.  It's been on the inspiration wall for quite a while and this chocolate-brown Radiance in my fabric stash about that long.… Continue reading Chocolate Swirl
