Still Going Crazy

By Andrea | April 17, 2012 |

With all the fun, exciting things going on in my life, I’ve been quite a slacker on all of my crafting and sewing projects, including my quilts.  Fortunately, when I went home last night, I started cleaning the basement, which is where my crafting area is.  I didn’t get too much cleaning done, but it…

Cotton and Metal

By Andrea | March 20, 2012 |

Over the last few weeks, the weather has been pretty nice most of the time, so I’ve not spent a lot of time inside the house crafting. If it was a sunny 82 degrees at your house, you wouldn’t either. But don’t worry, I have been working on a couple of projects. I’ve done a…

Designer Fabrics

By Andrea | February 15, 2012 |

Why designer fabrics? Everyone loved designer fabrics. OK, probably not everyone, but I do.  Let’s talk about why. The PROs Great Designs – once you find a designer you like, you’re pretty much set for life High Quality Materials – I’ve never purchased designer fabric that I didn’t love. You can feel the difference. Lots…

Fabric Stash

By Andrea | February 8, 2012 |

As many of you know from my recent posts, I am working on a Crazy Quilt and a Dear Jane quilt to help use up some of the fabric scraps in my stash.  But just because I’m using up some of my fabric doesn’t mean that I don’t have a lot more to use. I’m…

My Sewing Machine Hates Me

By Andrea | January 29, 2012 |

I’m having issues with my sewing machine again.  I’m sure that the problem that I’m having could be solved very simply, so for those of you that sew, help me out.  This is what is happening. I thread a bobbin. I put my bobbin in the machine. I sew for several minutes – everything is…

Still a Little Crazy (Quilting)

By Andrea | January 25, 2012 |

I’m happy to say that in the last week, I’ve been rather prolific in creating quilt blocks, at least for me.  I’ve completed 3 more 12-inch crazy quilt blocks, and have am partially finished with another. The best part about this project, besides all of the fun shapes and colors, has been using up some…

Going Crazy (Quilt)

By Andrea | January 18, 2012 |

I’m going crazy!  Or at least I’m attempting it.  I’m super excited about having completed my very first crazy quilt block. I’m still going to want to pick up some embroidery floss and do some detail stitching… unless of course any of my wonderful friends have any extra they would like to get rid of. …

Dear Jane

By Andrea | November 28, 2011 |

Dear Jane, I made 4 more blocks from your quilt this week.  I did them for a finished size of 6-inches, so that I could make use of some strips I cut for a previous project and ended up not using.  And, since I was using strips, I decided that I had better pick out…
