Happy Easter!

I made a couple of quilted Easter decorations in time for Easter this year! OK, full disclosure… I made them last year, but didn’t get them done in time for Easter! So technically, my first statement is true… LOL! As soon as I saw this bunny banner pattern by Sugaridoo in Quiltnow Magazine Issue 60, […]

This one is long overdue! I made the tutorial WAY back in 2017 for my group in the do. Good Stitches group. A long time ago! I asked my group to make a few of these stars each and send me some navy squares as well. The stars and navy squares turned into this lovely […]

Wishing you LOVE this Valentines Day

Happy Valentines Day! Yes, I’m one of those people that like to make seasonal pillows and quilts! Are you? I love (no pun intended) this pattern from Quiet Play. You can purchase it here. It’s a 10″ block and then I added the pink and grey borders to make it a larger pillow size. A […]

Impossible is a Bad Word- a mini quilt

Here’s a min quilt you may recognize. I actually finished it in 2019, but again, never blogged about it. Catching up! Late is better than never! ha!

Begonia Quilt Leftovers- Pillows and Potholders!

I just shared my Begonia Quilt that I finished last year and now to show you what I did with the leftovers! To make the Begonia Quilt there was a lot (A LOT) of HST action. Too much for me to make another one. But apparently, I made a few extras without realizing it! When […]

Quick Key Chain Tutorial

I recently made a group of projects for a Graduation Gift. I had used almost all of the fabric I was using for this group of gifts, but I had just a little bit left. Thinking about what else I could make, I thought… a Keychain! That would be easy enough right? So I ordered […]

Yellow and Grey Improv Complete

This little lovely is the 2016 Seattle Modern Quilt Guild Block of the Month! Yep, 2016. It took me four years to finish it for some reason… No idea why… It wasn’t hard. Each month there was a different block or ‘slab’ as the designer, Matt, described it. Each month he’d give us a type […]
