MCM 181: Quilter’s Block – It’s a Thing

MCM 181: Quilter’s Block – It’s a Thing

Last week was tough and I didn't make a lot of progress on customer quilts. I had a busy work/class schedule, and a couple days where my back decided I needed to rest. I don't like days when I want to get a lot accomplished but the body says 'ain't gonna happen today...

MCM #176: Four Patch Finish and New Pattern Coming Soon

Well I did it. I finally finished the quilting on the Four Patch. Whew! This one took longer than I expected. It was all ruler and freehand, and there were multiple starts and stops in each block. I always try to find a quilting path that minimizes the starts/stops...

Happy Monday everyone! How are you? I hope you are doing well, and found some personal time for sewing last week. I didn't get to do any sewing for myself, but I finished several customer quilts so I'm pretty happy with that. The first one I'm going to share with you...

MCM #174: A Grateful Panel Quilt, and Chocolate Pudding

Happy Monday! Last week was the week of the panel quilts. I shared two of them here on Friday, and have another one to show you today. I really like everything about this particular panel - the message, the muted colors, the simplicity of the print. It was a quick top...

Some of the printed panels available to quilters today are just so stinkin cute! I always feel like i don't know what to do with a panel, but after quilting these two quilts for Emily I realized that sometimes simple is best. KISS - Keep It Simple Silly! Look at this...
