Star Light Star Bright

Progress on Night Sky is coming along nicely!  All the stars are done...welllllll, I have six seams left on the white/silver stars but the stars are basically done.  Now I just have to add the sashing...frame....borders?  Whatever the black pieces around the stars is called.  That is my quilty goal for July.  To get the...

Look How They Shine For You

Previously I talked about starting my Jaybird journey with Gazebo.  With that done, I'm on to Night Sky. Like Gazebo, this is much simpler than it looks.  Night Sky uses the Sidekick ruler, which has a bunch of lines all over it as well. But once you understand how it works and use it, it's...

Bird Watching

I've officially started my quilt journey with Jaybird Quilts.  And boy, it looks like I'm gonna journey pretty far. I've mentioned before that I received the Gravity kit at Christmas 2017 (very excited) but, in all honesty, it's a pretty intimidating quilt.  I know a few fabulous quilters who have made Gravity and they all...

The Quilt on the Edge of Forever

Because I'm a nerd, I decided I wanted a Star Trek quilt.   I had seen a quilt on Esty made up of HST (think Postcard from Sweden but with red, blue, gold, and black).  I liked the look of the random placement of the HST but I wanted something more....nerdy.  So I designed this quilt. ...

Only 361 days until Christmas!

I hope you had a very merry Christmas and happy holidays!  This year was one of those Christmases where I wasn't really sure what I wanted so my wishlist was very short.  But because my family is awesome, I was happily surprised by a few gifts under the tree especially the fabric kit for Postcards from...

Visions of Sugar Plums (Week 4)

I mentioned last post that the finishing instructions (final week) were published at We All Sew on November 28.  Last night I finally got around to finishing this awesome table runner! Like the sample in the quilt along, I was going to quilt straight lines to keep the modern look but....I can't sew a straight line.  Instead... Continue Reading →

Whatcha doing?

It's been a while...and I haven't really gotten anything done! Shameful I know but it's Christmas time - there's shopping to be done!  Anyway, here's a quick update on some of my ongoing projects: Sugar Plum Table Runner - The final week was published at We All Sew...I've gotten the blocks sewn together but now I...

Visions of Sugar Plums (Week 3)

Week 3 of the Sugar Plum Table Runner is available and it's the last two three blocks of the project (2 snowflake paper piecing blocks and 1 traditional piecing star block). I was really enjoying my new journey in paper piecing...until this snowflake block. Not as easy as I thought it was going to be.  The... Continue Reading →

Visions of Sugar Plums (Week 1 & 2)

One thing about being a new quilter (or new at anything) is that there's always a bunch of "firsts" - First time cutting fabric, first time sewing, first time "unsewing",  first time doing a mystery quilt, etc.  Well I have two new things to add: first time doing a quilt along and first time foundation...
