Quilt Organized: Review

Hello and happy Monday! Did you know we are past the half-way point for the first three months of the year?! Time sure goes fast...anyway, this is important because it's the perfect time for a check-up if you're keeping quilting and sewing goals on a quarterly basis.

I'm using photos of my work-in-progress string quilt today because it is one work in progress I have been able to make progress on this year.  On Saturday,

The Saturday Seven | 12

Hello and happy Saturday! I hope you're having a great holiday weekend!  I've got plans to sew today...and to catch up on some household chores after sewing five quilts in the past nineteen days!  I'm also going to try to tackle my email in-box.  I haven't been very good at responding to emails over the past couple of I'll be sure to answer any I find with questions this weekend. I do so appreciate all of your comments and should be back on track to reply soon!

Now that Valentine's Day has passed, I see a lot of spring-themed sewing

Kate Spain Quilt #TBT

Happy Thursday! I've been slowly changing out quilts in my home...pulling out some of my favorite spring designs to display.  Last night as I was pulling out one of my favorites I realized that many of you have probably never seen this quilt. It's one that I love and that I can't wait to see every year!

It's definitely the perfect quilt to post for a "throw-back Thursday" kind of day!  This quilt uses the Terrain collection by Kate Spain for Moda fabrics.  I sewed three quilts with this group and still have an untouched fat quarter bundle of it on my shelf!

Judi Madsen of Green Fairy Quilts did the incredible quilting on this one!  It is truly a work of art! In fact, somewhere in my files I have a picture of Judi and I together in front of this quilt at quilt market.  This was also the first quilt I ever made that displayed in the Moda fabrics booth area.

I'm grateful I made a label for this one.  I never would have imagined this was all the way back from 2011. Some things truly never go out of style.  I love displaying this quilt in my home!

And this border's still one of my very favorite prints!

Ahhh...I just love this quilt!  I think I should start pulling out more quilts from the past to share on Thursdays, don't you?!

Shop Kate Spain current fabrics here...and find the free pattern for this Stepping Stone quilt and others here.

Thanks so much for stopping by...and happy quilting!

Works in Progress

Hello and happy Wednesday! And happy Valentine's Day, too!  On Wednesdays I like to post work in progress photos...and believe me...I have been sewing up a storm!  I can't share any of what I've been working on until later next month, but it's going to be really fun to share when I can!  I promise everything will be worth the wait--today I finished what might be my favorite quilt ever--and it's not even quilted yet! 

I have three new big quilts finished up and ready for quilting and am working

Quilting Life BOM | February

Hello and happy Monday! I decided to share this month's block for my 2018 A Quilting Life Mystery Block of the Month a little early this month (my goal is to post each month's block by the 20th of the month). I've really had fun picking out this years blocks, and made the February block while I was making my January block. I knew February was going to be a busy month...and is sure has been!

Flying Geese are one of my favorite block designs...and this month's block

Block of the Month Finish

Hello! On Saturday's post I shared a little bit of a sneak peek of my Block of the Month quilt finish from 2017.  I'm so, so happy with how it turned out!  My friend Marion did a fun, modern design on this one, and it just adds the perfect touch to this sampler quilt!

There might be just a bit of a photo overload on this one...I love how it turned

More String Quilt Blocks

Hello and happy Friday! Last weekend I was able to make 22 more string blocks for my on-going scrappy string quilt!  And it really didn't take that long!  In fact, If I had prepared just a bit more fabric before I started sewing I could have made a lot more!

I'm pretty excited to get some more fabrics ready to go and start making some

MInis and More

Hello and happy Thursday! And happy February! On the first of the month I always share small projects and mini quilts, and this month's parade features my Hometown Mini quilt!  I have to say it's been really fun to see all of these quilt photos come in this month!  There are always so many fun interpretations of the pattern to see, and I end up wanting to make another one myself!

Our first quilt is from Melanie...and I love that she was able to use some of our
