Quilt Lovin' From the Oven!

While the quilters are hard at work making beautiful things in the Quilting Quarters, I captured some of Chris's Christmas in July group cooking and baking up quite the storm in the kitchen!

Who says we can't do both?

I love a full and happy retreat house with folks spread out everywhere!

Binding Mama's Hexies!

It's getting there.


So I thought it was best to take photos of what was going to happen to the edge of the quilt before I bound it.

I think you can see here that I basted close to where I was going to be trimming, and then used a ruler to square the corners and trim the edges straight.

In this view here - I am losing half of every-other hexie - but there is enough float of background fabri beyond the flower border that it works.

Hamilton Gardens PDF Gift-Away!

Whoowhooo!  I have never been so glad for a Wednesday to finally arrive!

It seems like forever since we released a new pattern - it was mid-May when Mabel's Choice had her debut.

It's TIME!  I know you've been waiting for this one - and I can't wait to push send on this post and make it available.

Pieceful Hearts and Quilty Friends!

How fast can a week fly by?

I'd like to slow it down a bit!

I tell you, we filled every day of the past week full with quilting, porch time, hikes and more.

And it still flew by too fast.  Once a year is not enough to see these ladies!

Our Illinois Contingency left last night to get a jump start on their long drive home.  The remainder will be heading south to North Augusta, SC this morning.
