After thinking about it, I thought you might like another clue. I sent my 30's fabric out and had something done to save me a little time. I sent it to someone who is located in my favorite websites, as they do this as a service for quilter's for a small fee. They did a great job and it will help me to piece this quilt a little bit faster. I have already done this pattern once.I hope this helps!!

I thought I would have a little contest. The person who can guess (most accurately) what is in the box will win a little prize from me!! Woo Hoo!! So a couple of hints for you first...here is the box.It came back to me in the mail yesterday. It has to do with the fabric and project I mentioned in my January 7th post. Yes, go back and check it out. If you are truly a detective you can figure it out from other things that are on my blog....hmmmm, what could they be???Here is an extra added bonus, if...

Well, technically it is not quilted and bound yet. But the top is done and I love it!! It will hang in my guest bedroom or possibly sit on the dresser as a topper. This was the one that I showed the fabric in a few posts ago. It is the cover quilt from Darlene Zimmerman's Fat Quarter Small Quilts book. I love all the quilts in this book and hope to do a few more. It was a stash buster for me, I am challenging myself this year to utilize my stash and minimize my buying...OH NO!!!Also, I just...

Hi Everyone,I am so excited...I found some really cool vintage buttons on E-bay and put a couple of bids in and won them!! Here are the pics. I think they will make some great additions to my quilting projects. The orange and yellow ones may be adorning a tote or bag of some kind and the other are wonderful 30's colors. I think they will make great additions to my projects. In fact, I think that I will be going up to my studio now to work on a project.Tonight, I will be going out with some friends. I can't...

Today was a fun and productive day. The forecasters here had been predicting a big Nor'easter for several days. In this area they had predicted 8-14 inches, it turned out more like 6 inches. It actually is quite pretty, even though I don't like it so much. This was the view off of my deck, nice!Because of the snow, the kids were home from school today. They slept late which gave me the opportunity to watch Simply Quilts and complete the hand sewing of some binding. As I was finishing, they were waking up.Then it was on to completing the...

I decided that I needed a small project to work on, and because I love the 30's fabrics I chose one from Darlene Zimmerman's book Fat Quarter Small Quilts. I also wanted to pull fabrics from my stash and not buy any new fabric...heavens, no new fabric!!! Well, at least not for now. It truly is a small project and will finish at about 24" X 27" so if I could not scrounge up enough fabric in my stash I was in trouble. Here is a look at the fabric that I chose.The quilt is the cover quilt on her...

As promised, I have been gathering some of my 30's fabric together to start a new project. I will be making a very large quilt for show! I am hoping to have it done by the deadline in June. Here is a picture of the fabrics. I have 7 of each color (dark) and 1 light fabric 6 yards. I will be doing a popular pattern, however, I have never seen it done in 30's fabrics. Stay tuned because I will be giving more clues as to what this quilt will be and will have pictures also. Have a great...

Well, today I spent the day running errands and grocery shopping. We also de-christmased our household. Alas, the holidays are truly over. But I was done with everything fairly early and decided to go to 2 local antique shops. They are quite large and have loads of antique vendor booths. I just wanted to poke around not really knowing what I might find. I did see some old quilts but they were more than I was willing to spend at this time. But, I did have fun and found some vintage and some not so vintage buttons!!Aren't they cool!! I...

Happy New Year Everyone!!!I am sorry I haven't posted in a week; however, with the holidays and traveling I've been a little busy. But I did manage to do some quilting this week. I quilted the Yellow Brick Road flannel quilt that I had posted a while back and now all that has to be done is the binding. I sewed some of the winding ways blocks together ( these were on my last post). Hopefully next week I will have these block all together and a top will be born. I also have been gathering together 30's fabrics for...

Hi Everyone,I just wanted to wish everyone a very Merry Christmas and a Happy Holiday Season!! I also wanted to share with you that I have been sewing. I have been working on a no brainer!! I had received the following quilt kit as a gift a few years ago. But the catch is that it was already pre-cut. So this one has been easy to work on. This is how far I am. It is all light and dark batiks and I am having so much fun. If you like this, it is called the Wheel of Mystery and...

As I promised, I did go up to my studio and sewed last night for a little while. I don't have any pictures to show you what I am working on yet, but I will post some when I get a little further!!However, I do have some pictures to show you of another customer's quilt. I had fun doing this quilt. This quilt belongs to a long time customer and I wanted to make it very traditional from the quilting part to go along with the traditional piecing. Check it out... this is a picture of the whole quilt. It...

Today started off a little bit on the whimsical side. As my son and I were coming down the stairs he started to laugh at the sight that he saw. So of course I took out my camera and took a photo. This is one of our cats (Rolo). He is a 20 pounder and thinks that he can fit into anything...and I mean anything! Last week my daughter had her birthday and she was given a gift basket from her friends. She had emptied the basket of the gifts and left the basket by the Christmas tree. So, of...

Well, I am loving my Gammill Statler and I have a few more pictures to prove that I am coming along just fine. Here are some closeups of Kristy's quilt.This one is of a feathered wreath that I set in on all the diamond blocks on her quilt. She loved it, as did I. Doing it the computerized way was much easier than sizing it the old way. This next image is a close up of the scallop on the border, the sashing and a triangle. Not bad!This image is of the cornerstone, borders and sashing. I love it! It...

First, I must apologize. I have not made a post in over a week, but I have been a very busy girl. My Gammill Statler Stitcher is here!!! So all of last week, I was training on the computer part. I have the longarm part down pat after doing it for 8 YEARS...Wow!! Here is a wonderful picture of my new machine, a wonderful sight to behold!After playing a little bit, I did do a quilt on it and I have to say it came out pretty nice. It was a Chinese Coin quilt that I made up on my...

Well, I had success in uploading the pictures to the previous post. But I also wanted to add one more. This one is how I used the smaller book case to hold my pantographs for my Gammill and some additional books.I just used this one vertically instead of horizontal as I did under the window in my dormer. I hope that these pictures will help to inspire some of you who may need to organize better. I know I did and whew, boy do I feel better!!Have a great weekend!Jackie

Well, today is our wedding anniversary! I got up early wished my hubby a happy and came down to update my blog!! We did celebrate on Friday, by going to see Larry the Cable Guy at Mohegan Sun. After being married for 18 years you need to have some sense of humor. He was very funny! We were able to have a nice dinner and stayed overnight, as my parents came and stayed with the kids.Now onto the quilting segment of this post! As I promised, here are some pictures of my newly organized studio. This first one shows how...

Well, I just wanted to post some pictures of my studio! These are just little snippets. Can you tell I just love bright colors??? I have lots of fabric that I will just need to cut into, and I have lots of thread to sew it back together with as well as embellishment.What should I do first? I have lots of patterns to choose from or should I design my own....decisions, decisions!! I love to get ideas from different websites, blogs, books, and magazines, etc. If anyone has a suggestion, please let me know.I am also gearing up for the...
