#ProjectQuilting – Charm Squares

This week’s Project Quilting challenge, “It’s a Charm” was all about using charm squares. I love using charm squares in my projects, but this challenge was a little difficult for me because I could *only* use charm squares for the front of the quilt. I’ve been thinking about making myself a Dresden plate quilt, and Read More …

WIP Wednesday

It’s the last week of Project Quilting this year, so I’ve been busy working up my final #PQ6 challenge. I’m using up an entire package+ of Kona Sunrise Solids charm squares. It looks like I’m actually going to get this one done fairly early in the week. I got everything quilted down on Monday night, Read More …

Creation Quilt – #AnnaInSpain

This week we’re sharing another project by my wonderful internet friend, Anna in Spain! More from Anna below: This is the quilt I think of with the greatest satisfaction. The “design” itself is no big deal, just appliqued hearts, but the fabrics are wonderful, considering that they are all scraps that were gifted to me Read More …

Project Quilting – Fav Fabrics

This week’s Project Quilting challenge was super hard. I had to decide what my favorite fabric was. In case you’re new to quilting, this is like asking a librarian what her favorite book is! Many of us have a stash full of beautiful fabrics. Some of them we’ve had for ages because we’re in love Read More …

WIP Wednesday

Yet another week has gone by with my regular sewing machine in the shop. It will be 3 full weeks on Saturday. But the good news is, that gave me a reason to talk my husband into actually getting my Featherweight oiled. So, I’ve been using it to create this week’s Project Quilting challenge quilt. Read More …

WIP Wednesday

We, once again, interrupt this #NaBloPoMo for a #WIPWednesday update. Last week, I made up a super fun heart quilt for Project Quilting. You can vote for it this week on the PersimonDreams blog. I also took my Double Wedding Ring quilt out of UFO status and started working on it again. I got all Read More …

Project Quilting – Hearts

It seems like everything is having a heart theme this week. It was the theme for #OurProject52 this week, and for this week’s Project Quilting Challenge.  It kind of stressed me out because I don’t usually do hearts- they seem so childish to me. I’m much more likely to decorate with anatomical hearts than real Read More …

WIP Wednesday

With #NaBloPoMo this month, I’ve been a bit of a slacker getting my WIP Wednesday posts up, but I’m happy to report that no only did I remember to write up this WIP post, but I have stuff to share! My everyday sewing machine has been in the shop for the last week. Apparently they’re Read More …
