Fun with ribbons and decorative stitches!

Sunday, April 10th, 2011

A couple months ago, I had the opportunity to teach a demo class at our local quilt guild. In the few weeks prior to that I dug into my stash of fabrics and ribbon looking for some fun combinations! I had designed this quick tutorial and pattern for this cute little clutch that I had […]

Hang onto those stashes!

Thursday, April 1st, 2010

I have lots of stashes of various bits and pieces of items in my sewing room – fabric scraps, ribbon, beads, buttons and who-knows what else. At times when I’m sorting through things, I often wonder to myself, “Do I really need to keep all this stash of stuff?” And usually I end this mental […]

Pink suede and minkee blanket

Friday, July 17th, 2009

A customer wanted a blanket created with pink suede and zebra minkee fabric to which I thought, “No problem, I can do that!”. What we decided to do was do one side minkee and the other side suede with swirls quilted to hold the layers together and bind it with pink satin. Not too difficult, […]

This month in the Latte Quilt class we are stitching the Topiary Heart block! I can’t say that this is my favorite block, but it certainly has some unique and fun techniques in it!

Wednesday, July 8th, 2009

But reality sets in when you start to cut the fabric and stitching with it! Suddenly your great love affair with this fabric is diminishing […]

The *perfect* fabric for bathroom curtains!

Tuesday, April 21st, 2009

I was in Colorado last week to visit my friend, Joanna, and of course we had to go to Denver Fabrics. I just love that fabric store!!! They are not a quilt shop, but an excellent source of garment fabrics. Quality garment fabrics are hard to find and many times the cost of yardage can […]

Fall fabric bowl decoration

Tuesday, October 14th, 2008

The last few days have really felt like Fall here in Kansas! This my center fall decoration on our kitchen table. It is a large square fabric bowl I made from Fun, Fast and Easy Bowls several years ago. To create the bowl shape and edges you satin stitch the raw edge of the fused […]

MarJen for Error Quilt in Pink

Tuesday, September 23rd, 2008

I finished my pink version of the MarJen for Error quilt right down to even tacking on the label! I was a little concerned that the fabrics I chose would be too light and just blend together too much. But as I look at in now, finished, I love the soft, delicate look it creates! […]

Sweet little blanket

Monday, August 20th, 2007

One thing I love doing is embroidered baby receiving blankets! They are quick and easy and make such a great personalized gift! Here is a pink blanket I stitched a couple weeks ago for someone who needed a gift for a new little one. It is 1 1/4 yards of pink flannel where the edges […]

This is the Miss Kitty costume I have been working on for the past couple of weeks. It turned out pretty neat and looks nice on the gal who is wearing it! The red jacket has brushes of gold and purple in the paisley print. It is finished with a sheer purple ruffle around the […]
