Jordy’s Lil’ Twister

Jordy’s Lil’ Twister

Jordy is one today!  We celebrated his birthday last week and like his cousin, Anabel, he got a Lil’ Twister quilt!  However, this is not a dolly quilt but a “color mat”.  A fun way for him to learn his colors.

It’s hard to believe he’s one already!  Seems like yesterday I was finishing his Tummy Time quilt the night he was born!


Thanks for looking!  🙂 Linda

It’s little, but it’s another November finish!  I’m linking with A Stitch in Time to celebrate!

Christmas quilting

Christmas quilting


It’s always fun to quilt other people’s Christmas quilts!

Marty used up her Christmas scraps and made 2 awesome Christmas quilts!

Christmas Pinwheels

Here’s a couple of table runners by Marilyn.  It pays to plan ahead and make your backing big enough to load both table runners on the same piece.

It’s hard to see the quilting from the front but it shows really well on the back!


Thanks for looking and have a safe and Happy Thanksgiving!

New Pantograph

New Pantograph


My new Freedom came with 2 pantographs and this baby quilt by Joanie was perfect to try Jessie’s Swirls Simplified.

I love the swirly design with the square element of the quilt.









This pantograph will definitely be used again!






Combine Freedom with Bliss and you have very round circles!  As a freestyle, no computer quilter, I love that!!!

Thanks for looking!





BlockBase Sew Along – Block 4

BlockBase Sew Along – Block 4


My design wall is bare today, except for Block 4 of the BlockBase Sew Along.

For this block, I used 1 1/2″ strips and 2 1/2″ squares in the corners.  This block finishes 9″ and my other blocks are 8″.  The 3 x 3 grid element of this block made it harder to complete as an 8″ without paper piecing.  It’s such a simple block, I decided let it be 9″.  We’ll see what happens with the next block!

Once again, the fabrics are from my newly acquired vintage stash!  It’s a little busy but I like it!



Check out Judy at Patchwork Times for other design wall Monday projects!

A November finish – Bridget’s Bagettes

A November finish – Bridget’s Bagettes


Sometimes it’s fun to make small gift projects, and Bridget’s Bagettes by Atkinson Designs is a great one to try.

I started by making 4 of the larger Bagettes, measuring 5″ x 9-1/2″.  These will be used by our women’s group at church for offering envelopes!




Next, I made 2 sets of all the sizes to give to my sisters during our recent weekend together!  My sister, Marge immediately put one to good use with shopping coupons.

Using vinyl was a new experience for me but the pattern has tips for making it easier.  One of them is to put tissue paper between your sewing machine bed and the vinyl.  And yes, that really is necessary, otherwise the vinyl sticks to the machine and you’re sewing crooked!



I’m linking with A Stitch in Time for a November finish!  Yay!  Hopefully, there will be more!  Thanks for looking!  🙂 Linda
