Quilt Block Pincushion

This was fun to make. I also watched a really cute movie while I was working on it. If you haven’t seen “I Don’t Know How She Does It”, starring Sarah Jessica Parker, it’s worth a watch. That is, if you like funny, chick flick, feel good movies. 🙂 Hope you are enjoying your weekend.

Saturday Stitching


Did a little longarming.

Did a little piecing. The center portion of my Fons & Porter Stars & Stripes Sampler is finally complete and ready for borders.  The piecing has some issues and I will have some challenges to “quilt out”, lol. Nobody to blame but myself, hehe.

Before I left town for my work trip, I also did a little online shopping. These little gems were waiting for me when I got home, and I can’t wait for the right project to try them out! Lisa Calle’s Quilter’s Groove rulers…these things seem like they will be awesome to use!

Other than that, not much to say today. Hope your weekend is great!

Big Behemoth Quilt Update


I love my Circle Lord. I love feathers. I love it when a plan comes together. 😀

(Margo, guess I’m doing feathers instead of the leaves I originally planned.)

Here is a little snippet of some filler I going to use in some of the tan sections. I only did this one bit before going on to finish the ditch work and start the feathered star medallions. I just had to see if I liked the idea I had for it. I was trying to do something that would mimic the print in the darker tan fabric.

I’m going to be headed off to a work conference in Galveston for a few days, so I won’t get to work on it anymore for about a week. 😦  I’m going to miss it while I’m gone! Gosh, it feels good to be enjoying my quilting again! I just wish I could yell to Greg, “hey honey! Come see this!” And then, I would hear him say “Cool!!”

It’s not perfect (not that my quilting ever is, lol) but, considering I haven’t done this kind of work in probably close to two years now, I’m pretty happy with it. Also, the lighting in my quilting room sucks, making it hard to see where I’m going or where I’ve been sometimes. I need to find a solution to that problem.

Have a great weekend, y’all!
