Joining Batting Strips – What Not To Do

Joining Batting Strips – What Not To Do

Do you ever join leftover batting pieces to make a larger batting? I do it often. After all, those leftover pieces are perfectly good - they just aren't big enough for some of my projects. Joining them together takes a few minutes of my time and saves me a few...

My Website & Shop Are Operational Again!

My Website & Shop Are Operational Again!

I know some of you noticed my website/blog has been out of commission for the last few weeks. Today I'm so excited -- and celebrating -- that everything is up and running again and I can, once again, share some of the projects I've been working on. I won't bore you...

Choo Choo! A Sweet Train Quilt

Choo Choo! A Sweet Train Quilt

January is a very busy month for me. I'm teaching three classes at the local quilt shop, hubby starts rehab today for 2 to 3 times per week, and quilts needing finished for the spring quilt shows are pouring in. So last week I didn't have any personal sewing time, but...

I’m Back, and Ready for 2020

Hi Everyone! It's been several months since I've written anything here, and I apologize for being out of touch. I've missed checking in here, sharing the work that I'm doing, and conversing with you. Although I have read your blogs these last few months, I haven't...

Blackberry Dump Cake

Blackberry Dump Cake

Earlier this week I told you I would share a recipe for a blackberry dump cake. I like a good dump cake - grab some ingredients, dump them in a cake pan, pop in the oven and out comes a scrumptious warm dessert that is perfect paired with cool creamy ice cream. Yum! I...

MCM #164: Deep in the Pink

Good Morning, Monday Main Crushers! Today I'm sharing a sweet pink quilt made by Robin for her sweet granddaughter. Isn't it fabulous? Robin asked for the quilting to be 'something girly', so I chose to use the Smitten digital design I used on the wedding quilt made...

Time for a Cinnamon Roll

Time for a Cinnamon Roll

A few weeks ago I ran across a recipe for cinnamon rolls as I was browsing around Pinterest. The headline caught my attention: "Better Than Cinnabon Cinnamon Rolls" Now, I've eaten a Cinnabon roll or two in my time and they are pretty darn good. So when I found a...

MCM #163: Buzzzzzzy as a Bee

Welcome to another steamy Main Crush Monday! It's gonna be a warm one here today, so all a girl can do is hang out in her sewing room with the AC on. 🙂 I finished several customer quilts last week and also made a lot of binding. Those bindings all have to be stitched...

Machine Binding – It’s Looking Better!

Machine Binding – It’s Looking Better!

If you have been reading my blog for very long you probably know I'm not a fan of machine binding. It doesn't bother me if other quilter's put their binding on by machine, it just isn't something I'm very good at. Because I'm not good at it, I don't like doing it. But...
