Sweet Lily–Becomes a Wedding Quilt

I just put the finishing touches on this quilt.  It’s been waiting for the binding to get added and I finally finished sewing it on this morning. 

This was a kit I purchased quite a while back from Quiltique in Henderson, NV.  At the time I didn’t have a plan for it but as it turns out I think it is a perfect wedding gift.  I was told they like neutrals with just a little bit of color added so I think this works. 


Here’s a close-up so that you can maybe see the color. 


Soft but pretty I think. It has wool batting so the quilting really shows up nicely.   Here’s the label that Bear’s Quilt Shop added for me and as always they did a wonderful job quilting it for me. 


As you can see the wedding is next weekend.  It is being held at a Vineyard out in Temecula, CA.  We are really looking forward to going. 

Until next time,

Retreat Quilt

I just got home from another wonderful retreat at Vina de Lestonnac, a retreat center in Temecula, CA.  I have been fortunate to stay two times in the same sleeping room and it is one of rooms that has quilts on the beds.  I fell in love with this quilt the last time I stayed in the room and again this time. 

Quilt-p1It is twin size and has very thin batting in it.  It is quilted with an all over meander that is fairly small.  I’m sure it’s been washed many, many time and it is extremely soft and comfy.  I have no idea who made it and if it’s an actual pattern but it’s easy enough to duplicate.  I checked for a label but unfortunately I didn’t see any indication of who made it. 

I’m pretty sure I see this one in my future, I just love it.  I may change up a few of the blocks but I love that they are set on point and how the border sets it off.

Design Wall Monday–September 3, 2018

Nothing new on the old design wall but I did finish another new skirt.


I’m slowing getting rid of some of my old skirts and replacing them with new.  It’s fun and a quick and easy project. 

I’d like to get a quilt top layered so that I can start quilting it.  We’ll see maybe it will happen over the next few days.

In the mean time…………………….

My Yellow Skirt

I’ve been wanting to make a “retro” looking yellow skirt for a while.  I thought the fabric would be easy to find........not!  I finally found this one and only fabric at M & L.  Fortunately it was exactly what I was looking for.  I’ve had it cut out for a while but finally sat down and sewed it together this morning.     Enjoy,

Design Wall Monday - August 27, 2018

It’s been a while since I’ve had a Design Wall Monday post.  I don’t exactly have a design wal to shae but I do have a couple of things I’m working on.  As I’ve mentioned before I’m in the process or relacing some of my older skirts.  I have two cut out and hopefully I’ll get them sewn up tday.    Here’s my Yellow skirt.  I think it has a slightly retro look to it.  
I loved this fabric when I found it and decided it would make a great skirt.   Enjoy,

Posting a Blog Post from my IPad

I am trying to transition from using my laptop for just about anything to attempting to use my iPad more and more.   As a test to see how it’s working, here is a picture of a quilt top that I worked on last week.  
Until next time, Robin

Design Wall Monday–July 23, 2018

I’m not sure I like this but this is what was most recently on my design wall.


I decided to play with making a small (20” square) piece using a herringbone pattern.  It’s very similar to a braid but notice how the rows are interwoven together.  It wasn’t hard, just different.  My fabric choice is questionable.  My excuse is I was in Las Vegas and these are what I had that would show the contrast of light versus dark.  I don’t know whether I like it or not.  Maybe with different fabrics I would like it better.  I’ll have to dig around and see what else I can come up with.
