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 …

Project Quilting – Orphan Blocks

Today was supposed to be another #NaBloPoMo post, but I figured that talking about a finished quilt is a perfectly good reason to postpone it until tomorrow.  Instead, I wanted to share with you my finished project for this week’s Project Quilting Challenge.  So without further ado, I present to you “Annie.” This week’s theme Read More …

#NoBloPoMo – WIP Wednesday

We interrupt your regularly scheduled #NoBloPoMo for a WIP Wednesday update. With the issues I’ve been having with my machine tension lately, I’ve not gotten much sewing done in the last couple weeks, but this is a Project Quilting week, so I needed to get some sewing time in.  This week’s theme was UFOs and Read More …

#NaBloPoMo – Let’s DIY unless you want to DIFM

I love to DIY (do it yourself). I often take a look a quilts on display in magazines and think “I can make that.”Then I sit down with a pencil and some graph paper to figure it out, or come up with my own variation on the design. You may have seen this before on Read More …

Project Quilting – Sunrise/Sunset

This week’s Project Quilting challenge was Sunrise/Sunset. As soon as I saw the theme I knew what I wanted to do. It had to be something related to Fiddler of the Roof. I love musicals and the song “Sunrise Sunset” from Fiddler on the Roof is one of my favorites. So without further ado, I Read More …

Works in Progress

I have to admit to being a complete slacker and getting almost no sewing accomplished since my last WiP post. I did finish up my mini quilt for the 1st Project Quilting challenge of the season. You can vote for your favorites until 8:00pm CST on Friday, January 16th, 2015. The only other thing that Read More …

Project Quilting – Trees

I’m so excited to finally get a chance to participate in Project Quilting. This is it’s 6th season, but I just discovered it at the end of last season, so I didn’t get a chance to participate. The idea behind project quilting is to complete a new quilting project each week. The first project theme Read More …

Works in Progress

The new year has started off pretty well for me, at least as far as my quilting goes. I finished Rayden’s baby quilt. I’m almost done with the 1st Project Quilting Challenge. I just need to add my binding to it. And with the help of my MIL, I finally got the impromptu quilt basted. Read More …
