Catching Rainbows Pattern Release & Gift-Away!

It's a rainbow explosion of fun in the Quiltville Studios today as we release the printable PDF pattern for my Catching Rainbows quilt!

Are you as excited as I am?

I have heard from many who have been pulling and setting fabric color families aside for weeks - I suspect this weekend will be a flurry of color for many as you dive in!

Rollin' With the Changes

It's inevitable!

Nothing stays the same.

The only constant is change.

And we've got to roll with them if we want to keep moving forward.

Sometimes these changes come and I embrace them. Sometimes changes come and they tie me knots and throw me for a loop and a standstill.

This one is not a biggie  - but it will affect many of you so we are going to put this out here at the top of the blog so you can keep following with only a few adjustments being needed.

This is a Test, This is Only a Test

I got a little message from Feedburner this afternoon.

They are discontinuing the service of emailing blog posts to followers. The service from Feedburner will end in July.

It's SAD for me, because I know many of you come by simply because you found the teaser post in your email.

And the Obsession Grows -

I made 7 more Cabin Corners blocks yesterday.

This project was just an idea - a pipe dream - a possibility - a nudge - okay, a SHOVE into sewing up the remains left from my Rockabilly Swing quilt which I do have to say is much more fun than simply throwing everything into some random bin to deal with later.

If there re more scraps on hand - just keep sewing!

The center of the blocks really do use the small pieces - but when it gets to the larger pieces, I've been digging into strings.

Step Outs, Patterns & Ponies!

This was on my agenda yesterday.

The crazy thing is that I KNOW I took step out photos while I was making the blocks for the quilt - but months pass, I checked the file folder where I've been stashing everything, and they are nowhere to be found.

Not on my phone, not my computer, not in google photos - 

And it's kind of a good thing really.

Weekends and Wanna-dos!

I am back to hand quilting on the Eternal Hexie quilt.

Well sort of.

It's kind of hard to move and maneuver the hoop once these two have settled into their own version of "Pet Tetris" on top of me.

It's about this time that the thimble goes back in its little metal tin along with the quilting thread, needles, seam ripper, a few pins and a needle threader.
