Quilt-Uber-Fest Day 1

The Quilt-Uber-Fest started today: http://bluenickelstudios.com/?p=3183 The first block was by Quilt Dad.  I wasn’t going to do it.  Don’t I have enough going on right now??? Evidently not — here’s my Taking Flight Block! It “flew” together!  Which reminded me — here’s a fun way to square up half square triangles some of you may…

McCall’s Cover Quilt!

Last week I found out that my quilt would be featured on the cover of McCall’s Quilting!!! It’s the large star made from a jelly roll of Kate Spain’s Flurry.  I just love it! They named it Snow-Kissed Star which is more perfect than anything I could have come up with! Here’s the link to…

Small Treat Bags

Until a few weeks ago — desperation struck! You know, sometimes it’s…

The Old is New Again

I am in the middle of quilting a quilt for a customer.  I just ran out of thread — something I think I have done one other time, and it was MANY years ago!  She of course, needs it tomorrow, so I will be running to the store first thing in the morning to pick…

Singing the Quilt Label Blues

I know I shouldn’t feel this way, but I don’t like labeling quilts.  To tell the truth, I usually don’t label my quilts.  If I do label it, it’s usually to sign and date it with a sharpie on the back. My favorite labels are those that I have seen pieced into the back of…
