Schrodinger’s Cat Mini Quilt

By Andrea | May 13, 2015 |

I finished up the first of the Focus Through the Prism challenges today.  The block to incorporate this month was the Churn Dash, sometimes called the Monkey Wrench. My version of the quilt, “Schrodinger’s Cat,” features an offset block inside block design, with embroidered kitten, and hand quilting.  Fabrics used in this quilt are Cherrywood…

WIP Wednesday

By Andrea | April 29, 2015 |

Sewing has been slow going this week. I just haven’t felt inspired to do much. But I did get a couple more eye spy blocks finished.  They are coming along nicely, though there are no where near enough yet. The most blocks I have of any one color are blue. There are 5 of those…

WIP & Pranks

By Andrea | April 1, 2015 |

Happy April 1st! I hear that I’m supposed to be tricking you all, but I don’t think that will actually be happening. As a child, I never liked being the target of April Fools Day pranks- probably because I got picked on enough the rest of the year. Fortunately, As I’ve grown up, I’ve found…

#ProjectQuilting – Charm Squares

By Andrea | March 20, 2015 |

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…

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,…

Creation Quilt – #AnnaInSpain

By Anna | March 16, 2015 |

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…

This week is another calm before the storm type week as I wait for the results of voting from last week’s Project Quilting Challenge- Fav Fabric. You can vote for my quilt, and any of the others you like (up to 5 votes) over at Persimon Dreams. I have done a little sewing though. I…

Project Quilting – Fav Fabrics

By Andrea | March 6, 2015 |

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…

WIP Wednesday

By Andrea | March 4, 2015 |

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.…

WIP Wednesday

By Andrea | February 25, 2015 |

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…
