Thread Painting Finish

This quilt was a bit of a roller coaster. For those of you who have read my earlier post, I decided that the reindeer offered the best combination of possibility of success and being something that I could imagine hanging in my apartment. Here's the original photo, taken on a trip to Finland a few… Continue reading Thread Painting Finish

Finished and Ready to Gift

I seem to have lost track of time, and suddenly it is a month since I last posted. In fact my quilt has been finished for a week. I started it as a practice making stars and intended it as a toddler quilt. I may have gotten a bit carried away.... One of the things… Continue reading Finished and Ready to Gift


It's done! I can't really believe that I have another finish within such a short time. Between using orphan blocks and leftovers from other projects, and the fact that covid has limited evening outings and eliminated travel, I am a far more productive quilter than I ever was before. When I began this quilt, I… Continue reading Concourse

2020 Finish #2

I can't believe I already have another finish, after over two years without any quilting.

Many years ago, when I was quilting fairly large quilts and struggling to manage them under my domestic machine,… Continue reading 2020 Finish #2

That's how long it has been since my last post, and even longer since i last posted a quilt I made. In the interim, just when I thought… Continue reading Hello Again

That is an advantage of small quilts!  And here's the finish, though I still haven't given it a final press.  You can see the Quilt Inspector's paws as he looks over my work: This quilt was my first attempt at ruler work. I used Bernina's… Continue reading Finish #2 for 2017

Oh Good Lord, I actually finished something

This has been a rare occurrence of late.  Every time I think I have gotten on top of things and will spending more time quilting (and blogging), it seems I find myself quickly overwhelmed, without either the time or the energy to pick up my quilting.  This morning I woke up with my work under… Continue reading Oh Good Lord, I actually finished something

In Under the Wire

It's done!  Okay, done except for attaching the quilt label.  I don't always label my quilts, and when I do, I sometimes just quilt something in rather than create a label per se.  But for this quilt for DS, I wanted to try something special.  I used printable fabric I bought a long time ago… Continue reading In Under the Wire
