Quilted Art Project Update 4

I know, it has been a couple of weeks since I showed any progress this project.  I had to set it aside while I worked on the Moda Bake Shop recipe that published this past week (Pin Woven Tote on the sidebar).  Between that, the charity quilts, the car club, and spring springing, little time …

Wild Orchid Pin Woven Jelly Roll Tote For Moda Bake Shop

I am thrilled to announce my second recipe for Moda Bake Shop!  I used an older technique that I haven't done in quite a while called pin weaving.  Although I enjoy quick and easy like anyone else, sometimes I like to stretch with a difficult or time consuming project.

Every month this year the EQ7 blog is having a challenge.  I decided to participate this time with this one.  The challenge for March is to design a quilt using only two colors, then recolor it with fabrics.  So, I began with some applique blocks, as some day I might actually learn how to do …

Quilted Travel Bag – The Scrappy Project Finish

I finally finished the scrappy project, and it became a travel bag.  It has a wonderful snap frame closure that I purchased from Ghees.  After I finalized the design and ordered the frame, I contacted Linda McGhee and she generously has provided both a coupon for all my readers and a giveaway prize!
