Teacups Quilt Along – January Block

For the next block in the Teacup Quilt Along, it is time to applique!  This is a mixed techniques quilt, so let's stretch a bit this month.  Applique is not my forte, I can do an invisible whip stitch as well as anyone, I guess, but the turning under part is what is difficult.  So, …

Applique Quilt Repair

Repairing a well loved quilt is one of the things I really enjoy doing.  Sometimes a quilt is just used to the point of falling apart, and really, what better tribute to a wonderful quilt than for the owner to wear it out?  I'd much rather see that than a beautiful quilt wrapped in tissue …

Wool Work Valentine Penny Rug

I enjoy all kinds of needlework, but there is a special place for wool work.  I don’t really know what it is about it, maybe because it is so easy and fast, or maybe it is the charm of it.  Either way, it is fun to do.  I wanted something with hearts for February to …
