Whoot! I love the feeling of progress! I have the last few corner blocks to go then the middle section will be finished! Here's some detail of the brown logs... ...and some detail of the blue logs with their meandering feather... ...another look. I've taken some video though not sure if it will be… Continue reading Almost to the Borders on ‘Snow In October’ Quilt!
Hi Friends! The project I'm working on right now is the quilting on the 'Snow In October' log cabin quilt. I've been slowly figuring out a plan as to how I'd like to go about the quilting. First I print a copy of the quilt (I used EQ7 to help with that) and then with… Continue reading Quilting ‘Snow In October’
Hi Friends, Followers and Family! I'm not quite ready to make the big announcement yet, but if you've noticed my postings have been very infrequent there's been a reason. I have been secretly hiding from you my adventure of starting a new business! When the timing is right and all the legal paperwork finally comes… Continue reading Taking Product Photos
There's still lots of snow on the ground here, even though the temperatures got above freezing for a few days. I don't know if it was the change in weather, walking the dog without a hat, a co-worker getting sick or my husband getting sick but I ended up flat out in bed for a… Continue reading Working on the Sashing
I've been making lots of blocks using the Speedy Churn Dash pattern sheet. Each one is unique and they are so fun! I've completed 56 and plan for a sashing and a border. This pattern is developing into another 'no waste' design as I'm incorporating the extra 3" blocks as border treatment. I had thought of a white… Continue reading 2 Weeks and 56 Blocks Later I’ve Almost Made Butter!

There's snow on the ground and we are expecting more snow later today and tomorrow so if I'm going to get… Continue reading A Photo Shoot Morning
The 100 Crumbs Quilt has been sewn together! In between paint drying I've been upstairs sewing the rows together. I wasn't sure how this was going to come out but so far I love it! This was one of the projects I worked on at quilt retreat... It is part of my goal to empty… Continue reading 100 Crumbs Progress!
Hi Friends, It is good to be back among the living again. This Spring weather threw me a doozy this week with a pretty bad chest cold and I'm just now feeling better, though still stuck with a lingering cough and phlegm issue which will hopefully be done in a few more days. So back… Continue reading 3 Dog Nights, Quilt Retreat and a Bad Case of the Sniffles
Hi Everyone! We received some snow yesterday, just a few inches, and I think the plows were ready for it because when it was time to go to work the streets were clear!! If there is one positive thing to say about living in Chicago (suburbs) this has to be it. We have one of the… Continue reading Weight Loss Journey Quilt Project – Block #8 – “The Next 5 Pounds”
Happy Valentines Day!!! It has been a week or so since I posted my last block in this Weight Loss series and all this time I have been thinking about doing a block that involved chocolate!!! Isn't chocolate something that we just crave on a diet? I know for me it has been, even though… Continue reading Weight Loss Journey Quilt Project – Block #7 – “Must Love Chocolate!”
