My Simple Sewing Space

Welcome to my work space! Not being a person who procures a great many things, I prefer a short-and-sweet way of living. My motto is: if I don’t use it regularly it gets thrown out. What you are about to see will not rival the polished and sophisticated work areas of quilting professionals. It does allow me to simply get the job done with efficiency, have some fun doing it and leave little to clean up when it all has ...

Scrap Fabric Project

Little quilts are absolutely adorable and considering that, I’m confused there are so few in my home. Well, that’s going to get fixed pronto! Awhile back I wrote a blog called My Primitive Little Quilt. The project required 30 charm squares in which one 3-1/2” square was cut. That left two, 1-1/2” strips from each charm square. Yep, you guessed it, another “closet” project…

My Primitive Little Quilt

Well, long about now I'm really getting embarrassed. I keep blogging on these 'almost finished' projects and it's dawning on me I need a 12-step program for this because there are so many more projects to go! Why do I put these projects away at such a late stage? Why not just finish them because it only takes such a little amount of time to do that? I'm exasperated with myself!!! They are all so cute!

A Hexie Primitive Home

OK, so, this is the worst it gets! All uphill from here. The next quilty task I pulled out of my closet was this Hexie project. It really doesn't qualify as a UFO because the next step was taking it to the framer. It was all finished... that is, hand pieced, hand embroidered, embellished with cute little buttons and hand quilted! All it needed was to be tucked inside a frame. I guess I didn't want to bother with that. As you probably guessed, this took no time at all ~ just a trip to the nearest craft store and they did all the work! I love it! Wahoo!
