Hey it’s Summer


 Wow has it been hot here these past few weeks. Yucky……

I don’t know about you but I’m a cool weather girl, me and heat struggle to be together. I’m getting more like myself in all ways these days which means I’m can tolerate some humidity but still limits my time to be outside and active.

Which means I have been doing more inside. 

Since I haven’t posted anything since March, it’s about time I do.

Since the last post I have had a few quilts machined quilted and have been working on bindings.


The Peace quilt has been finished and given to its new owner.



Turned out so cool. Love it.


It will be loved and used

Then another quilt that was in the group of tops that were quilted is from Laundry Basket .

This one I had finished a few years ago and it’s nice to be now working on the binding. 


Here it is being trimmed up to have the binding attached which is what I am in the process of doing 




This quilt is for me and will be another addition to my Christmas quilts collection.  I’ll show more pictures after I get the binding on. 

I have another quilt by Laundry Basket that I’m been wanting to start, so as soon as this done I’ll be starting that.



I’m still plugging along on my sister’s quilt 




Have one more pieced block to make and then add the green frame for the rest made.

And then on to all the filling blocks.

Just slow and steady.


Till next time

How to Make a Portable Design Wall

I had wanted to get a portable design wall to take to retreats but did not want to pay the price. Looked at various pins on pinterest and took ideas from more than one to come up with my verison. It worked out great and only cost a fraction of the price. The PVC pipes, joints and 2 yards of felt cost under $22.00 My design wall is 4' x 4' which stands approximately 5 1/5' tall. For this size need 2 - 10ft length of 3/4" PVC pipe for the frame and 4ft of 1" PVC pipe for the feet Cut the 3/4" PVC into 4 - 4' section                                                                                       2 - 1' section              Cut the 1"  PVC into 4 - 1' section          The joints you'll need will be 2 - 3/4" elbows 2 - 3/4" T's 2 - 3/4" to 1" T (this will be the base of the Feet) 4 - 1" elbow Also need pipe cutters (this cost me almost as much

My Sunflower Quilt

  Yea it's done. It has been a few years since I started this quilt. It was a BOM at Sager Creek Quilt Shop . Pam's (the owner) friend Marilyn McSpadden designed this quilt and Pam quilted it. Marilyn  used a lot of different techniques in appliqued designs.I just loved the weaving of fabric in the center of this blocks.   What beautiful quilting she did. I favor hand quilting but for machine quilting this is top notch.  As you can see Marilyn had design some of the blocks in 3 dimensional    And the rouging in the center of this sunflower was fun. Love the details in the quilting. This quilt measures 64 x 82 and was a fun challenge. This quilt will go in my dining room. 

What's Up

Well that is a big question, what's up Seeing how I haven't posted since before the retreat I went to. So I will show what I did at the retreat and what I have been doing these past few days, which is this Log Cabin Christmas Tree  wall hanging I have the blocks completed and now it just a matter of getting them sewn together. I'll get to that tomorrow. While at the retreat I made this baby quilt top with the disappearing 4-patch block. I had a charm pack and used some "snow" fabric Kaufman snow is one of my favorite whites to use. It's white but not a stark, bright white, goes well with a majority of the fabric I've collected. I started late making my blocks for RCS14 First I wasn't sure what pattern I wanted to make and then with all that was going on the first part of the year, I didn't start until July. One quilt is using a quarter log cabin in solid colors. I made these at the retreat, have the other half t
