all over the map

i did a first time secret swap with the seattlemqg ...i made my secret partner jackie a bracelet from lotta's every day style book...a key ring and a pixie basket from fabric mutt

and my very creative secret partner kristen made me this !  i love everything about it xo

i signed up for this

and i have made a bit of progress

my spider web quilt has resurfaced ... i hope to have another sewday with it soon...awesome tutorial from quiltville here
and i am struggling away with the block placement for my quilting mayhem summer sampler ~ it would have been much easier if i would have followed their instructions but it is too late for that xoxo
and i have been very busy with customer quilts...i finished up diane's quilt with gossamer from digitech  

            not much of a blogger lately but u can also find me on instagram where i post more often

another year...another log cabin retreat

nine of us this year at the log cabin retreat in monroe 

i take a crazy car full

  approximately thirty- six hours  of sewing were had
 i began another heart and home quilt with a crazymomquilts jelly roll  ~ i am loving it with the bright colorway

i finished up this urban garden quilted wall hanging  pattern by paisley bunny designs done w a half moon modern moda charm pack ~ started a few years back

i put a small dent in my fancy forest quilt...francis the firefly is a fussy girl and nbd i need seven more...same for allie the owl and the thistle block...and i still need to make the  hedgehogs and bunnies ~ this one is for milo and it is going to take awhile !!
and then i spent some time with this simple nine patch of liberty and kona bone ~  four rows down five more to go [ i shared a fat eights bundle [ so yes i only have fat sixteenths] for a year w my friend kay from duckadilly]  this will be a very special queen size quilt for ME
i also got  a  small start on another spider web project ...i made a table topper [ the one on top] a few years back inspired by crazymomquilts and the tutorial she shared from quiltville  i have always wanted to do a larger version
and then there was this...i came home to a glidden siesta keyblue LOVE living room wall freshly painted by nick
               now i am tired...amazing how much crazy sewing you can do in one long weekend xoxox
                                                       happy tuesday xo pam

improv love and milo love

when this quilt outgrew my design wall i knew it was time to piece all the wonderful rows together and be done

i loved everything about  making this improv quilt

i am making this quilt for my son and his wife....almost all of the fabrics [corduroy, vintage , linen blends etc] were upcycled from value village and approved by lani xp

inspiration came mostly from  sherrri lynn woods and seaslabbom w seattlemqg ~ more of my posts are  here, here and and here
the spine block row second from the right was so inspired by this instagarm post from satterwhitequilts

working with the  corduroy and other unidentified fabrics was interesting... the colors in this quilt are so rich

i have my fingers crossed and hope for the best after it is quilted ...cuz it is a bit wonky sad looking now that it is all together
in other news and much more important...milo is almost sixteen months and recently started walking...he also had a ten day stay with us while his parents had a well deserved break..it was a very special time for this gramma xoxo
                                                                happy thursday xo pam

special quilts for logan and rachel

i made some very special quilts for these two ` ~ they lost their mama to breast cancer in 2014

very inspired by sherri lynn wood's book improv handbook for the modern quilter and  her tutorial on passage / keepsake quilting gave me the confidence i needed to start this special project

i love how they came together so different

i know they will be loved

rachel said it is so soft and  she will keep it FOREVER
rachel's is made with her mama's shirts and comfy pants
logan's is made with his mama's  demin, comfy pants and a few shirts 

in loving memory of kelly ann wright
