Hanging with The Sewciologists!

This is the kind of activity you will find at Quiltville Inn this week.

Every station is busy, projects are being started, finished and some even simply needing a binding finish with feet up in a comfy chair in the Hen Den - 

Or even out on the porch as yesterday was a wonderful 70 degrees with barely a breeze.

In fact, I think it is likely the last "dinner on the porch" event for the year as temps look like they are going to go steadily down hill after this weekend is past.

It's okay!  We'll take it!

I had a wonderful time visiting with everyone and making the rounds from table to table.

Irene and Sherry are determined to make more progress on their Scrap Crystals quilts rom MORE Adventures With Leaders & Enders.  I love these blocks made from simple units!

Laying out the pieces!

So fun in pink & green!

Inner pieced border going on Grassy Creek!


I love how that pieced inner border completes the churn dash variation blocks at the edge.  Without that border you'd have 2/3 of a churn dash there. This rocks it!

Hearts of Hope in purple/yellow! Glorious!

Hearts of Hope is included in my Solidarity PDF pattern booklet.

More fun finishes - of the crumb variety!

What a great way to use up the scraps!

Bigger hunks and chunks -

Both of these fun quilts will be gifts - I just love them so much!

It's almost Halloween!  

And there is a Spider & The Fly quilt center being put together!  Just check out how fun these fabrics are:

Spooky Fun!

Which leads me into some Spooky Fun of my own:

I've placed the PDF pattern for Spider & The Fly  at 25% off in both the Quiltville Store and Quiltville Etsy Pattern Shop - no coupon needed!

The price is good through 10/31/22 and will revert back to full price on 11/1/22.

Pull out those Halloween themed fabrics and more orange/gray and black and get sewing!

This two block quilt uses easy piecing techniques.  I used the Essential Triangle Tool for the half-square triangle and hourglass units in the quilt, but traditional rotary cutting methods are also given for your convenience and method choice.

Now I just have to go find the quilt in the upstairs quilt vault (Bedroom closet) and get it out so I can hang it in the foyer at Quiltville Inn!

And then there were 20 (brown ones)

I found I didn't have as many brown plaids as I thought - so I mixed in more old-fashioned looking prints to extend what I did have.

I'm now back to working on the blue ones - there is NO shortage in blue plaids.  And on we go.

For those wondering when the planned date for releasing the pattern for Bristol is - be sure to keep your eyes (and browsers!) open on Monday October 17th!

Quiltville Quote of the Day -

Happy Friday everyone!
Let the good songs roll!



  1. Such beauties being made ...love them all but especially Spider and the Fly! Hmmm
    I'm hand quilting the last row of my Appalachian Autumn quilt.
    Your wonky log cabin blocks are fantabulous..
    Have a Sparkling Day Bonnie.

  2. Happy Fri-YAY! I love seeing you having such fun with the groups at the Inn. Looking forward to another Quilt Show day next week. Always on the lookout for Quitville Quilts.

  3. Lots of pretty Quilts, I spy three featherweight's. I would love to have a count of how many featherweight's arrive each week. Just for fun I love my little sewing machine. I have four other machines that never get used.
