2017 started off with some sewing of little handmade sewn gifts for all of my longarm quilting clients at The Quilted Lemon. I like to find something that will be useful but that also are easily shipped. This year I... Continue reading

I'm still plugging away at many quilts but life has been a bit crazy since March. My mom had a health scare and we lost one of my great aunts, etc. We're hanging in there. Next week I'll come back... Continue reading

Since this was my first time attending QuiltCon I didn't want to overextend myself. I only signed up for one six-hour class on Thursday and one lecture on Friday so that I could spend most of Friday looking at the... Continue reading

I used Simply Cotton's lanyard tutorial so that I could have something nice to hang my QuiltCon name tag from. Once again I used some of Tula Pink's Eden line for it. Usually I'd mix and match some fabrics but... Continue reading

Here's a few more pictures of amazing artwork from PIQF 2015 this past October. Of course I'm drawn to rich colors first of all. Then I'm blown away by the workmanship. The two quilts are both by talented German artist,... Continue reading

It seems like I've been running around like that chicken with its head cut off ... lots of movement but not much to show for it. I have been getting more quilts in to my longarm quilting business, The Quilted... Continue reading

I need to write an update ... Miss Pinkerton survived two nights with us. Then on Monday we found a rescue organization that could take her. They had baby rats a bit older but still able to take care of our wee pinky. So all ends well for her.

the Stitchin' Post in Sisters, OR Be kind to your local quilt shop and support them by shopping for fabrics and notions from them. Oddly enough in the last couple months I've spoken with a variety of quilt shop owners... Continue reading

Thanks Sandi. No, I never did find out what the significance of that interesting statue was. It looked like there were different words engraved on the pieces in the mind area. If I ever find out Ill let you know. :-)

Thank you Jackie! The quilt is basically a jelly roll race quilt. Make it according to the regular directions on the internet for a race quilt. Then cut it vertically about 10 from one end. Flip this section vertically, then move it to the other side. Sew in a contrast fabric strip thats about 5 to 6 wide. Once that is done you can add a contrast border that is about 4 wide. At least thats what I vaguely recall doing. Its amazing how much difference doing that adds to a jelly roll race quilt design. If you have any questions send me an email. Good luck! Cheers, Tami
They are cute witches, no? Sadly I only took pictures of them at the outdoor quilt show at the garden center. They do teach classes but not online. Sorry about that. Thank you for dropping by.
