Ice Dying Fabric

Hey guys, I know it's been about a minute since my last post (almost a year), but it's not because I haven't been busy! I would rather be creating than writing or taking pics, lol! I feel like I should change the name of my blog to Crafting in the Lowcountry because I have been... Continue Reading →

Log Cabin Quilt

I haven't been very active on my blog lately because we have had a glorious spring here on the southeast coast and I have been spending my extra time outside (running, fishing, yard work, ect.). This is my favorite time of year but soon it will be very hot so I'm taking advantage of it... Continue Reading →

Cobblestone Quilt Show

Today I attended one of my area’s largest quilt shows, the Cobblestone Quilters Guild 2018 Quilt Show in Charleston S.C. I always look forward to this show because it’s only held every other year and it showcases some terrific talent. Awhile back I posted about being in a pattern test group and I’m happy to...

Wasted Space Reinvented

There is a little hallway/balcony that overlooks our entrance foyer on the second floor of our home. I have to walk by it everyday as I enter my sewing room and it was a very un-inspiring space.

Most of the time I could have made the quilt without the class but I continue to take them because I enjoy spending time with other quilters and always learn something new. The class I completed yesterday was no exception.... Continue Reading →

I have been quilting for over 13 years and have never used a design wall. I have always arranged my quilts by laying the blocks on the floor and although that works well, I can’t leave them there because my dog or cats will be all over them. I have been working on a test... Continue Reading →

The Busiest Time of Year!

  I love Christmas, but this year has been tough! I think the reason for the difficulty is because this is the first year my husband and I are alone. We are officially empty-nesters and it’s made me a little depressed, especially during the holidays. I was a homeschool mom for 12 years so I... Continue Reading →

Quilt Care Instructions

I've gotten into the habit of adding care instructions with all of the quilts I make for others. It is a simple list of rules that should be followed to care for a quilt but I can honestly admit I break most of them. For instance, I always put my quilts in the dryer because... Continue Reading →

Thrift Store Finds

  Do you like to shop at thrift stores? I grew up with a mom who loves to thrift shop. In fact, I took her for a colonoscopy yesterday and she asked to stop at a thrift store on our way home from the hospital! From an early age I remember getting up early and... Continue Reading →
