Hip Stitch Albuquerque NM – Trunk Show

Hexagons Made Easy – Trunk Show If you are in Albuquerque, New Mexico and if you are in Hip Stitch Sewing Loung & Quilt Shop, you will want to check out the Hexagons Made Easy Trunk Show! Suzanne was kind enough to let me share a few of her pictures from her shop.   And one of my favorites, certainly one of the favorites at guild presentations is the Reversible Hexagon Quilt. No binding is needed when you use the “reversible” technique in Hexagons Made Easy. Pretty neat trick, right? It is also a perfect Quilt-As-You-Go design, too.   Again, a huge thank you to Hip Stitch in Albuquerque for hosting the trunk show! If you are a shop and would like more information on hosting the show, please click this ReannaLily Designs?link....

Quilting the 1600

Quilting the 1600

on Jan 23, 2012 in Blog, blogging others, quilt shop, quilting | 4 comments

In August, I got a small mid-arm quilt frame. It is actually my mom’s “old frame” and quite frankly, one of the best new-to-me presents of all time. I don’t think I’ve blogged about it yet though. I got quite busy with preparing for Quilt Market right around Aug/Sept, and I’ve really only quilted 4-5 small quilts on the frame. Oh but that is all about to change friends. The 1600 quilt is the first quilt on the frame for the new year. My frame bars are short and can only quilt up to 72″ wide. That is fine with me, I still have quite a steep learning curve to tackle. I visited a longarm workshop in December and learned tons about thread, needles, tension, rulers and all sorts of machine quilting details. I hopped out to my favorite local quilt shop, Material Girls, over the weekend to buy some variegated YLI thread and binding fabric for the 1600. (Turns out, if you make a 1600 quilt from a jelly roll- and all the strips match perfectly- ya might want to plan ahead to have fabric for the binding.) {{Side note: I had to buy that Karavan Elephant fat quarter. I just think it is wonderful.}} So the quilt’s loaded. I planned on a simple meander, since the family, who was home this Sunday afternoon, wouldn’t have to hear the whole range of cuss words. Although I really like the free motion quilting with planned designs, I’m kinda re-learning how to quilt on this frame. I also learned at the longarm workshop that it is smart to use the same thread in the top and bobbin for better tension results. Oh- I’m soooo doing that. I’m quilting along… feeling pretty good… then the machine made a sort of jerking motion with only 4 linear inches left to quilt. Oh hells bells! (do people say that?)? I was out of thread. Not the usual “bobbin ran out with 5 inches left in the seam. ” I mean I was OUT out of thread, and on my last bobbin. I fumbled around the studio and found a different variegated thread to use, and hope no one will notice. That new therad...

A big thanks to All About Quilts! The trunk show looked fabulous at the front of their store. With each business endeavor I learn new things- for this one I learned to not book the event until you find out what time the NCAA Football game is. =)? Turns out the K-State game was at 2:30p, right in the middle of the book signing. We didn’t have a ton of traffic, but I am grateful to all those who did make it out. Thank you for supporting the book and the shop! The trunk show is headed to the Houston Quilt Market for October and will then travel to two quilt shops, Loving Stitches in the Fayetteville NC/Fort Bragg area and Colonial Quilts in Savannah GA/Ft Stewart area for the month of November. Stay tuned for more information on those...

Sewing Machine Guts

Sewing Machine Guts

on Feb 16, 2011 in Blog, quilt shop, sewing, wichita kansas | 0 comments

FINALLY a blog post on the sewing/design blog that my dad will like. =) I went to a sewing machine shop today to pick up a tiny post which holds the spool of thread at the top of the machine. Somewhere in the 6 moves in the past 11 years, it got lost or broken off or something. And, it never hurts to throw a few more bobbins into the shopping cart. I’m the last of the big spenders, leaving at under $5.00. While I was there, a sewing machine was in the operating room. I felt kinda bad. I’m sure its family was sad, too. I mean look at this poor thing. The cool thing is that the shop will probably have it up and running in a couple hours. I’ve never seen this FAR into an electronic machine. Who knew?! Very cool. And yes, the repair tech definitely thought it was crazy that I wanted a picture. Sorry for the quality, its a cell phone picture. But wow- circuit boards, wire, gear, parts, shiney stuff, dull stuff, oh it goes on and on. I was strangely fascinated by this machine. I thought you guys might want take a peek inside. (Sorry I don’t have the model number. Lets just say that is in the operating room privacy rules....

Seamingly Accurate Demo at a Local Quilt Shop

Seamingly Accurate Demo at a Local Quilt Shop

on Dec 7, 2010 in quilt shop, Seamingly Accurate, wichita kansas | 0 comments

I was so happy to be invited to demonstrate the Seamingly Accurate Seam Guide at Picket Fence Quilt shop, in Wichita Kansas. After the demo at the Common Threads Quilt Show, I learned to bring extra inventory. Thank goodness I did because this demo had the seam guides hopping of the shelf. In fact, I’m happy to report, I only have two left and need to re-order! The demo was part of a holiday open house. I have to say, there was a REALLY good turn out. My portion was 1/4th of an hour long free demo/class type deal, set up in the shop classroom. We each did our presentations twice, for two separate groups of ladies. Every chair was full and there were ladies standing in the back. This was my first time to demo the seam guide in a classroom-type setting. I’ve demo’d it plenty of times at shows, where people are walking past- some stopping some still walking. I was really nervous. You can’t really tell in the photo above, though. Who knows what I’m saying in that shot, but I thought y’all would like to see me making the silly face. And can I just tell you how wonderful it was to see this big display right when you walked into the shop??? LOVE IT! That quilt is the Quarter and Dime quilt pattern! It looks so lovely. Thank you for the support, Picket Fence!!! *Thanks to my 10yr old who took all the photos for...
