I am a big Eleanor Burns fan, so when I heard that she was hosting a Historic Bed Turning and Tea event, at her Quilt in a Day shop in San Marcos, I knew I had to go! 🙂 I bought some cup of tea and teapot panels, some coordinating tea cup fabric, and made her a little wallhanging. I am still new to appliqué, … Continue reading Bed Turning and Tea with Eleanor Burns and a GIVE-AWAY!!

In hindsight, I … Continue reading Thank God for Hometowns ❤
This Quilt-Magic kit was very fun to make! 🙂 It is a kit that comes with a foam board that’s laser cut for the fabric pieces! It doesn’t get much easier than that! No special tools required, it comes with the pattern and pieces of fabric to cut out. With the pattern numbered, you simply tug the pieces of fabric into the pre-cut foam board … Continue reading Quilt-Magic : American Flag

I apologize for the lack of posts, I’ve been trying to be more “fit” and active lately. So I’ve started to take some line dancing classes, an extra zumba class here and there, and even ran 5 MILES in a little over an hour!! I did not run the 5 miles by choice, per say. Lol A close friend invited me to “jog” with him, … Continue reading Mug-rugs! 🙂
Remember my post about wanting to do what makes me happy, “life before his eyes-my ponderings…” ? Well I finally acted on doing what makes me happy; I took a last minute trip to the beautiful San Diego!!

After I basted this quilt (you can read about that here) , I had initially wanted to hand quilt it. I was doing a simple X, from corner to corner, in each square. But with many … Continue reading Baby quilt : Machine quilting DONE!!
