Quilts With Same Colorway

Carolyn made 2 quilts with the same colorway (some fabrics repeated) but different patterns. Both are lovely.

I’m always partial to the contrast with white and I buy more white fabric than any other fabric. Someday I’ll change but not today!! So I really love this one.

Quilted with Dutch pantograph.

This one has white too, just less. Quilted with Field of Flowers pantograph.

Mmmm. That’s pretty too!

Thanks for stopping by.



Heart Quilt

Carolyn made this lovely heart Quilt for the Guild’s Quilts of Love program. If a member loses a close family member or spends a night in the hospital, they get a quilt. We have given away a lot of quilts over the years. It’s wonderful that Carolyn gave of her time and fabric for our Heart Quilts.

Quilted with Hearts A Flutter pantograph.

Some of the members of the Queen Bee visited a member who moved an hour away. Lunch was delicious and Cowboy was a perfect host. We also got to go to the Cary Quilting Company.

Joan and Cowboy, myself, Karen, and Donna

It was fun.

Guild Raffle Quilt

I had the pleasure of quilting next years Guild Raffle Quilt. The committee did a great job. It’s lovely and it’s large-95″ x 111″.

Quilted with Lush Leaves pantograph using light grey thread.

If you are interested in buying Raffle tickets contact me.

On the baking front, I’m creating sourdough starter. Here it is the morning of the 6th day after being fed.

And this is what it looked like 12 hours later.

I’ll be glad when I’m not feeding it twice a day. I’m hoping to recreate a bread I used to buy for my son, Steven, at the Farmers Market when it was on Pennsylvania Ave near where the police station is now. It was sourdough with applesauce and he loved it. Recently he asked if I could make it. I just need to find a recipe. If you have any suggestions, let me know.

Thanks for stopping by.


Baby Boy Quilt

Lynn made a sweet baby quilt for a boy. Nice variety of blue patches. Bubbles pantograph.

Cute backing. I appreciated the extra work she did when she put the extra piece inside the backing rather than the outside edge of the backing. I didn’t have to be sure the edge of the quilt didn’t hit that seam.

Thanks for stopping by.


The Quilt Show BOM

At last, the stars are completed and attached to the center.

While I’m not new to paper piecing, I don’t do it often. I learned to take a couple stitches past the line when beginning and ending my stitching line. This time I learned that when the line will be on the outside when you remove the paper, stitch all the way off the paper. I had to fix a lot of the seams on the outside edge because they weren’t completely sewn together.

I love the staggered stars. Easy to stagger them and they maintain their “star” look without the strong secondary pattern when pieced end to end.

Ashley’s stars are made. Just have to attach them.

Thanks for stopping by.


Scrappy Stars Quilt

Liz has made another great scrappy quilt but this time with a lot of Halloween fabrics. During the quilting process I look at the design very closeup. Then when I take a picture I’m so surprised. What a pretty quilt, full of interest and movement and lots of gorgeous color.

This quilt is very large so it is draped over my longarm.

Used Simplicity pantograph and Quilters Dream Wool batting.

Wonder how many pieces in this quilt.

Thanks for stopping by.
