Pocket Pixies Quilt Top

By |July 25th, 2011|My kids, work in progress|16 Comments

Hey there!  Yesterday I finally had a chance to sit and sew -- and it felt so good! The methodical process, of piecing, pressing and making decisions as I work is like magic.  And I never tire of the process.  I know you can relate to that idea.  Now my little ones are gathering around, [...]

A couple weeks ago Pat asked if I would join her in a simple blog hop, um ya!  Of course I'm in.  I had the pleasure of meeting Pat at Market last month, and she is so much fun and sweet too!  If you haven't listened to her Monday radio show - you should - [...]

Working with Wonderland by Momo again, has been a lot of fun!  After much deliberation, and a little experimentation...this is the main quilt - Aren't my helpers cute? After chopping up four blocks, and putting them back together, I decided I didn't need to push myself out of my box on this quilt! Since the [...]

Wonderland Blocks

I showed you my stash of Wonderland fabrics, just one week ago.  I got to work and stayed up late sewing - then showed you the start of my project here.  It felt really good to stay up late and sew, just because, not because I was trying to meet a deadline!  Over the weekend I [...]

Beginnings and Birthdays

By |June 2nd, 2011|Celebrations, work in progress|16 Comments

The beginnings of my Wonderland quilt: After a full day of celebrating Sophia's birthday, I stayed up late sewing...Joe thinks I *might* have a problem!  It's so soothing to me, sew, press, trim, repeat...more on that later. Sophia turned 6! She had a fun day being the center of attention and loved every moment of [...]

Quilty Accountability

I need to be accountable, or these are not going to get finished! I made place mats for our family, and a couple little mug rugs with the extra bits.  They are quilted, and ready to be bound...my goal, is to have them done and posted here sometime on Saturday. Now to go make a *few* binding [...]

Professional Quilting

I go back and forth.  Sometimes I quilt my own quilts, sometimes I take them to Natalia. I always LOVE the results when Natalia has been involved.  This is the back of a quilt, that I cannot show entirely yet, but really wanted to share the fabulous quilting! What do you think?  Have you had [...]

As I was working on a project last week, I forced my self to stop and take a picture. I love the lines and the movement in these pieces. Amy

Works in Progress

By |March 30th, 2011|work in progress|25 Comments

Here's a couple quilts in progress for me right now. I use binder clips to keep my pieces from getting lost, or confused, since I'm often cleaning up and putting things away again! Hopefully I'm making some progress as you read this! What are you working on? Amy
