The First Hexie Flower

It’s been well over a month, and that’s how long it’s taken me to piece the 37 hexies that make up one of the five large flowers in my Not My Grandmother’s Flower Garden quilt.

Even more complex hexies

After my last post I recalled I have worked with a slightly different concept for pieced hexies before. Actually, they are even more complex than those Mickey Depre teaches in her Pieced Hexies class on Craftsy.

In the hoop again

Ok, so you’ve seen this project before.  I know… more than once. 🙁 I’m talking about my oldest UFO, which in May will turn 10 years old.

Finished quilt sampler

So, with all the wedding hullabaloo, one of the things I had forgotten to post about is my Craftsy 2012 sampler. You’ll remember I started writing about it here.

A quilt sampler

Well, I’m finally back in the quilting mood! That is, as time allows… still. There always seems to be a lot of work that limits my sewing time. Plus running around that means more hours in the car now that I’m living out in the country. However, even though there are still quite a few […]

Christmas sewing and knitting revealed

You will recall that during December there was very little I was able to share in the sewing/quilting/knitting department, as I was working on “top secret” Christmas presents. I am happy to say that not only was I able to make all the presents on my list, but I actually finished them on time, with […]

A finished quilt

We had a really nice Christmas. . This year it was about family. Yet even our “little family” still involved 10 people! 🙂 And now that all the gifts have been delivered, I can reveal the sewing and knitting that took place during November and December. That is… of those items I actually remembered to […]

Guess what? It’s time for the Blogger’s Quilt Festival again! And this post has to do precisely with my entry for that virtual quilt show.

Is this why I quilt?

Whenever asked why I quilt, the answer that comes out right from the gut is: “Because I have to.” There are so many other activities in life that I thoroughly enjoy; quilting is something beyond even that, an expression of self… And then there are all those other many (and valid) reasons: I love fabric, […]

One cheesy quilt!

Well, not really. Actually, not at all. Just a little play on words to describe Alexia’s latest production. Her quilt is now finished, washed and spread out on her bed, waiting for her return from the beach. I blame her mother for her quirky sense of humor. I mean, have you ever seen a quilt […]

Orange, turquoise, and black

I’ve finished Julian’s quilt top and have to say… I am loving this quilt! Alexia has also finished her quilt top, and I have to say it’s pretty cute. There’s a twist to her design, and I’m not going to give it away until it is actually quilted and finished. So without giving too much […]

A boy’s quilt

So this weekend has been set aside for cutting and piecing a quilt for Julian. I thought it was high time to start using those plaid fabric samples it took me so long to iron and store… So I pulled out the container and let Julian pick and choose the ones he liked best for […]

Bigger Ambitions

One of the things I enjoy the most of having the grand kids here is being able to share artsy time together. I myself did not have a quilting mother or grandmother to show me the ropes, so sharing this knowledge with grandchildren is certainly very rewarding. I can easily envision how they, in turn, […]

    I am a self-learner. I taught myself to sew and to quilt. And I taught myself how to draw. I am learning how to dye my own fabrics and am dabbling with mixed media. I am a quilt designer and teacher, and design and publish my own line of quilt patterns. With this blog I would like to share the bits and pieces of my life.
