I would like to introduce you to my new Gammill Statler Stitcher (fondly referred to for now as my "personal assistant" until I can come up with just the right name for it! LOL) It arrived a week ago, has upped the decor level in my quilting room by several points, and is performing like… Continue reading My Gammill is Here!
I'll bet from the title of this post that you're expecting me to give you a chart of some kind, with various brands and features, and present myself as an expert on the subject! That's not happening. First of all, I'm no expert on anything other than my own opinion. Secondly, writers of blogs choose… Continue reading Longarm machine comparison
As we approach the end of the year, I want to share with you some changes that I'm looking forward to in the coming months. As with any journey in life, my quilting journey has taken yet another turn, and I've made the decision to sell my HQ Amara and purchase a Gammill Statler Stitcher.… Continue reading Changing plans for a New year!
I had a super fun time being interviewed by Leah Day on her Quilting Friends podcast last week, and it went public today so I wanted to share the link and the experience with you! We had a great conversation about quilting, creativity, passion and balancing things in our crafty lives. Some of it was… Continue reading Interviewed by Leah Day
I'm not good at naming quilts (we've been down this path before) but when I started this project and decided it was going to be something quite different than other things I've made I knew it needed a special name. The fabric itself inspired me to come up with a name befitting the luxury that… Continue reading Majesty – the silk quilt
I finished the second panel from Art Gallery fabrics and because much of the stitching is similar to the sheep quilt I recently posted, I won't fill this up with a lot of photos! Just wanted you to see it all done, and share a short video clip at the bottom of some stitching I… Continue reading Simply Sweet
Soooo... I wanted to stray from the woodland animals baby quilt theme for a bit and do something fancier with more of a custom heirloom look and, of course, lots of white solid space. This minimalist style panel is one of three I found in the "Nest" collection from Art Gallery Fabrics. I love the… Continue reading Baa Baa Black Sheep
I thought the last wide strip quilt I made was funky, but this one - WOW! The color combo was a suggestion from my daughter, based on my request for a trendy idea. Apparently purple, gray and yellow are a thing. They aren't necessarily MY thing, but that's not the point! LOL I wanted to… Continue reading Purple, Gray, and Yellow
You'll probably recognize this general idea and color scheme from another recently finished quilt I wrote about; I'm not releasing a detailed pattern for the piecing process here, but I don't mind if you just figure it out yourself and copy it... Some pictures have filters to enhance the stitching and make the colors more… Continue reading Finding Joy
Wavy lines and straight lines are popular on modern quilts and I like to find ways of embellishing them here and there to give a bit of extra interest to the overall look. I thought this cute baby quilt could use some clouds in the stitching, and rather than over think the shape and the… Continue reading Wavy Lines with Clouds
