Yonder Quilt Along: Row 13

It snowed this week and I saw plenty of geese flying south. Maybe they’re heading to the land of the Tula sea shells? I had a fat quarter of the Tula Pink sea shells from Zuma. And it was plenty. Like always. When it comes to these little rows, it’s so hard to give a

Yonder Quilt Along: Row 12

Another short row! Man, I love these. Even though this is one of the tricky arch rows, it went together fast. I’m working on greens, moving from yellow greens into blue greens, so this stripe is a great transition piece. I thought it was from Tula’s basic line but the selvedge says Tabby Road. It’s

Conifer

When we came up with this

My partner for this swap was a high school math teacher. Quilting is definitely math-y! I remembered a project I had to do in geometry

Swapping Skillz

When I first got my partner assignment for the Alison Glass Mini Quilt Swap, I was pretty intimidated. My partner, as in the person I was making a quilt for, was Kim Johnson. Kim is phenomenal. She does crazy/complicated paper piecing and gorgeous machine quilting, and I know everyone is always happy to get some

Exhibit

Exhibit is another quilt that started out as a design for Andover fabrics. The first version was done out of Lizzy House’s Natural History line.   We knew we couldn’t get the Lizzy House fabric in time to make the quilt for market, so to the stash we went! A stash is a beautiful thing.

I Love My Photographer.

Because guys, look! This is our Mes Petits Choux quilt. I’m so in love. Isn’t this sculpture fantastic for our Fully Glazed quilts?! And you know what? That Fully Glazed with the wool applique is really hard to photograph. It just looks so flat. But this picture is sooo good! And the pink and brown Fully Glazed
