Amy's Creative Side: Blogger's Quilt Festival - Spring 2010


Amy's Creative Side: Blogger's Quilt Festival - Spring 2010

I'm not sure how many saw the quilt I made for my mother for Mother's Day(2009)... okay so I just made the top and she had to do the rest(Sept 2009)... If we had waited until I got it quilted it would have taken an eternity. I have a hard time finishing projects--okay quilting them-- I would rather make the top, give it to someone else to finish, when my husband's Grandmother was alive she loved to quilt and not piece, sure wish she was here now to help me, we would be quite the team.
Every time I look at it, I see my mistakes... marks of love is what I tell myself (it's really called learning the hard way.) This is my first fan quilt and my first time sewing curves for a quilt. yeah!! I made at least one of my goals this year.. learn something new... curves.

Bloggers Quilt Festival

Bloggers Quilt Festival entry. I am entering this in the festival and have linked this post back so that all can go and see the amazing quilts entered.


This is an octagon quilt that I made for a friend at work. She just moved into a new home and I wanted to make her a house warming gift. It was made with an oriental print of Jars. I just loved this fabric and hated to cut it up but it turned out nicely. I love this pattern because it showcases a piece of fabric really well. I have made several quilts using it.

Help me! I can not decide what to do.....

It's the hundred dollar question... how to finish a baby quilt. I am working on two baby quilts for friends that are having girls.... the dilemma that I am having is how to finish it, I have been debating whether to put prairie points or rickrac around the edge or just leave it as it is. Below are the pictures of the baby quilts... (they look a lot cuter in real life)....any suggestions??? HELP!!!



(PS these are made from panels)

New Shelves

After showing you my sewing room I decided that I was going to do something about the mess. So I went to Lowes and bought two 72" shelf runners, 8 self supports and two 6foot metal shelves. I screwed the runners into the studs, cut the six foot shelves in to 3 foot sections and this is what it looks like.


This is what it looks like after I put stuff on it. Didnt take me long to fill them up.

Some people will do anything to win

It is sad what a person will do for five entries to win an accuquilt go. I Have a Notion is having a give away and the link is on the side.This is what I have to do:Post a in depth look into your fabric stash or sewing area/studio without cleaning or staging a thing (100% honesty only). Photos or videos are a must along with some juicy details :)


This is the computer and books area.I spend a lot of time here on the internet and dreaming of all the quilts I will make.


This is the cutting table, which used to be the door to the closet we tore out. At the moment you cant see the door or the cutting mat as it has a couple of projects on it, in different stages of completion. If there is to much on it I know I cant start something else till I get something out of the way.


This is my sewing area with my two favorite machines. Works pretty good, I dont have to go far to get to either machine or the cutting table which is to the left of the serger. The ironing board is on the back of the door which is to the right of the regular machine. My room is about 9'x10'


This is the fabric stash. It used to be a closet but we had to tear it out to move the water heater and it hasnt been fixed yet. I like to put my fabric in plastic totes mainly because we occasionally have mice problems and I dont like my favorite material to get little nibbles taken out of them.

Here is another one.



But what amazes me is, you add these to other fabrics and this is what you get....yummy goodness.....and you think to yourself....I would have never guessed.



This fabric is on clearance at Inch Worm Fabrics......come by and see what else is on sale.
