More Hexies!

Since I finished the Jellyfish Hexie Quilt, I’ve been making hexies out of random scraps of fabric that have been given to me by a few PMQG members (Thanks Sam, MaryAnn, and Cris!) So I have piles of crazy-colored hexies to play with. I came up with a layout for a medallion for a larger …

Piecing A Quilt Back

Sometimes I think there is something wrong with me… I can’t seem to just use a large piece of fabric for my quilt backs.  Why?  Because I always have left-over scraps from the front, that I just don’t want to use for something else – I’m usually ‘done’ with certain fabrics after using them in …

Quilting By Hand

Quilting the Jellyfish After many tutorials, I’m trying to hand quilt my Jellyfish Hexie Quilt. It’s been quite a process of decision-making to figure out my plan of action. In the picture above you can see some of my quilting… and I have to be honest, it’s not as good as I would like it …

Braces Quilt Finish

Oh how I do love finishing a quilt! Time for a little celebration, and right now, I’ll take any reason to celebrate: Braces Quilt Front  I made the pattern from the block I entered in the GenQ Magazine Block Builder Challenge in June this summer. It really felt great following through on this project. I’m …

A Quilt Back

YAY! I finished a back for the Braces quilt top I made a few months ago… Braces Quilt Back I think I spent way more time on this than I did on the front. I don’t know why, but I really love creating a pieced back for a quilt. This one had a lot of …

Time To Sew

Since I recently finished the Jellyfish Hexie Quilt, I am super excited to finish up some other quilts I’ve started. I just pulled out my Green Cross Quilt top that I made at the PMQG Retreat in October – it’s way past time to get a back made and get it over to Nancy’s so …

Binding By Hand

I’m trying something new: binding by hand.I figured since this whole (jellyfish) quilt has been stitched by hand, it would be inconceivable to use a machine to stitch down my binding! Hand-stitched binding I started by sewing the binding to the top of my quilt, just like if I was using a machine. I actually …

Time Slip

Wow! I just realized it’s been over a month since I’ve posted anything – Happy Belated New Year!! Lots of things happening, but not much time to write about it all, let’s see if I can recap a little bit. One great thing I’ve been able to do this month was go to Just Quilting …

Starting to Grow

The Jellyfish quilt is starting to grow! Quilt back – whip stitching Sewing the strips together takes the most time of all the steps in this project. It is also the most rewarding. Every stitch is adding a bit more to the quilt!  I whip stitch the rows together from the backside of the quilt …

Time To Connect

YAY! I finished sewing all the rows in the Jellyfish quilt this weekend! I was lucky to take the whole day on Saturday and sew. I spent most of the day with my quilty friends at the PMQG All-Day-Sew and was able to get a lot done, then I came home and finished up the …

All Day Sew Day!

Yesterday I was able to attend the All-Day-Sew that the PMQG sponsors every month. It’s pretty sweet…  now that I moved, I’m feeling pretty lucky in that I can walk to the fabric store where it’s held!! It was really fun – we have such a great group of people. Of course, I forgot my …

Number 200!

This is my 200th post! Woot Woot! To celebrate, I’m going to be posting some free downloads. You’ll find my Unbe-weevil-ble quilt pattern, and a file to print to cut your own 1/2″ hexie paper templates. I’ll be adding my layouts for the Squid and Dragon Hexie quilts soon too – kind of exciting to …
