in a previous post, i discussed my recent trend of starting quilt projects but never finishing them. as i was cruising along on the most recent quilt, i got really excited about it, and decided it was high time to break that streak and saw it through to the very end. it all started when […]
making stuff with needles and thread
updates from the quilty front.
as promised, in multiple previous posts, finally, an update on my sewing.as i type this (april 16th), i currently have five quilts in various stages of completion. normally, i like to make one entire quilt at a time, from start to finish. but, i decided to branch out, and channel all of the energy of […]
old dog. new tricks. or whatever.
a long long long time ago, i got my start in sewing by making little felt stuffed animals. they were mostly flat at first, and then i branched out to some three dimensional characters. but, then i began quilting and have sort of lingered in the two dimensional space ever since. the quilt/fabric/sewing shop at […]
ribbon candy-esque christmas quilt
a few months back (i think?), i was scrolling around on the internets, when i happened upon the christmas in the city fabric collection by art gallery fabrics. i was in love. the vintage vibes. the colors. all of it. and i ordered it immediately with no real plan for what to make with it. […]
ghost party quilt.
after making the ghost town quilt two years ago, and a spooky scrappy economy block quilt last year, i really had no plans to make another halloween quilt this year. then i saw woolly petals ghost party quilt and i quickly abandoned said lack of plans and pulled out my stupidly large halloween fabric stash […]
autumn themed mom and pop quilt.
as with all other aspects of my life, i really hit a big wall with quilting last summer. i had no inspiration. no motivation. i was just blah. (it’s january as i type this and i’m still in the same boat). anyways. to try to jumpstart my quilty-life, i strolled into sewingly yours for ideas. […]
mom and pop for the bride and groom.
this summer, my baby brother tied the knot with his lovely fiancee and mother to the world’s cutest nephew. despite having plenty of notice, i ended up procrastinating the making of a quilt as a gift for them. as the date grew closer, i waffled with indecision about the fabric and pattern choices. erika has […]
some quilty decor for my stupid walls.
you may or may not know two things:1. i hate my stupid house and i have been hesitant to even bother decorating it because it’s so stupid and ugly.2. i have been slowly churning through a series of paper pieced national park blocks, with no real plan for a finished project. i have already blogged […]
ruby star scrappy sunshowers quilt
i haven’t really had much sewing motivation lately. between trying to make a go of caking, end of year school stuff, and constant sicknesses, i just haven’t gotten around to it. then one day, an old friend called to ask me about making a chemo quilt for the daughter in law of a mutual friend […]
recent paper piecing adventures.
after making several big quilts in a row (halloween economy block, scrappy christmas tree, gnomes, amh flying geese, and stay gold bear paw), i needed a little break. it was time to work on something smaller, more intricate, cheaper, etc, so i started the search for a new paper piecing pattern. lo and behold, i […]
