Fun at Wooden Bridge

 Last week I had the privilege of teaching two Rulerwork Quilting classes at Wooden Bridge Dry Goods and Fabric Store.  Two fun groups of ladies.  I hope they learned something too!!!

Baby Nora and Donna

Just delivered this quilt to "Baby Nora" on her first birthday.  She is so sweet, and I hope that she will love this quilt as much as I loved making it for her.  It has minky on the back and of course it has a silky binding.  I pray for much love and happiness for this precious little girl.





This quilt was completed by one of my students, Donna.  We had to postpone the class because of Covid, so she decided to give it a try on her own.  She did a great job!!!  Thanks for sharing, Donna.

Oldie but Goodie

 I just finished this table runner.  I probably started it about six years ago!  My cousin, Kelly, finished hers, but mine got put aside for some deadline, and never made it back out to my top-ten list until recently.  I still love it, and it feels so good to finish up an "oldie but goodie."  Just in time to use it on my picnic table this summer!

 I'm not sure how I missed posting this quilt.  In August and September of 2021, I quilted this quilt for a dear friend.  She pieced it as a wedding gift to her son and daughter-in-law.  The bride and groom, Isabelle and Adam, picked the pattern and fabrics, Donna pieced the quilt top and I had the pleasure of quilting it.  Donna used the "Easy Piped Binding" to bind it.  Check it out in the close-up photo.  I think this is one of my favorite quilts.   I hope it brings them lots of love and comfort.

New Instructional Videos

Hi friends! I have posted two new instructional videos for you all to enjoy. I have embedded the links below and as always you can find them in the "Instructional Videos" section on the right.

How Should I Quilt This - Halloween Baltimore

How To - Easy Piped Binding for Quilts

Friday, January 21, 2022

 I just finished this little wallhanging.  It was hand appliqued a couple of years ago, and I finally got around to quilting it.  The binding is an easy piped-binding.  I am just finishing up a free instructional video to show you how I do this.  It should be posted in the next couple of days.






Friday, September 24, 2021

 I have posted a new video which you can find HERE or by clicking on the link in the "Instructional Videos" in the right hand menu.  This is my take on "How do I quilt this baby quilt."  This quilt was made for sweat little Julia.   I think she really likes it, ha ha ha.

How Do I Quilt This - Large Quilt

 I have completed the second quilt in my "How Do I Quilt This?" series.  It is a queen-size quilt that I will be giving to some dear friends as a thank you gift for some repairs they did to our cabin (which is where this photo was taken). 
The video is available in the column on the right, and it is titled "How Do I Quilt This - Large Quilt".  My goal with these videos is to provide some quilting ideas and inspiration to get some of your unfinished quilts completed.



(Check back soon, I am almost ready to post a video on an adorable baby quilt.)

Baby Quilt Sent to Germany

 My daughter, Jess, completed this quilt top for a friend in Germany, and I did the machine quilting.  The quilt was mailed and arrived safely for baby Simon.  Congratulations to his Mommy, his Daddy and his big sister!!!



Quilt Retreat

As always, good times were had by all at the Linck Hill Quilt Retreat.  Here are some photos to show that we were productive too...












Jackie and Bobbi left before I started taking pictures, so I'll post this photo in their honor!  No further explanation needed, ha, ha, ha.


I hope to see LOTS of Kitty Corn quilts in October!!!

 I've got some catching up to do!  During this time of COVID, I hope you all are finding more time to finish up some of those long forgotten projects.    Here is some of the progress I've made...


First, I had to make a stocking for my new grandson, Thomas.  The stocking is the sixth in the series of "Twas the Night Before Christmas" story.  This one is "While Visions of Sugarplums Danced in Their Heads."  I love you sweet boy!

       



This quilt top was made by a dear friend, Denise Mullins, for her daughter, Courtney.  My job was to do the machine quilting.  Courtney and Kyle got married in October 2020, and had a much smaller wedding than they originally planned.  But, they made the best of it.  And they certainly look happy here...



I finished Courtney's quilt in January and started right in on making two little valentine projects that have been hanging around in my sewing room for a few years.  It felt so good to finish these up...



BE SAFE!
