I wanted to have this ready in early June; you know, Father’s […]

June 350 Blocks Report

Well! I’m a tidget late getting this post up. I’ve been stricken by some evil summer stomach bug, and there’s been a few days I could barely get out of bed. You know something’s not right when it’s 100 degrees out, and you feel the need to wear a sweatshirt and long pants! I’m on […]

A Quilt for My Third Daughter

Years ago, my daughter and her best friend, who I call my third daughter, both asked me to make them t-shirt quilts. Several years ago, I finally finished one for my second daughter, and you can see it HERE. Then, naturally, I procrastinated on the next one. Last fall, I set in on it, and […]

Approximately 23 years ago, my friend, Rose Marie, and I decided that we wanted to do a Round Robin quilt. There are many different iterations of how a Round Robin can be set up, but we wanted the kind where you start with a center block, and pass it around to other group members for […]

May 350 Blocks Report

I’ve completely lost my sewing mojo! I haven’t hit a slump like this in years. I hope it doesn’t hang around for long, altho it’s been nearly three weeks already. There’s so much I need to do, and I don’t feel like doing any of it. I’ve barely even set foot in my sewing room. […]

Sum Fun Lynx

Posted on May 16, 2019 by prairiemoonquilts in Inspiration, Quilt-Alongs & Bees

I’ve been seeing so many cute things that look like they’d be fun online lately. It’s all I can do not to start some of them! So, I thought I’d share them with you, and just live vicariously through watching other people do them, until I get my own mess a bit more under control. […]

May Studio Organizing Challenge

Posted on May 15, 2019 by prairiemoonquilts in Studio Organizing Challenge

Well! I’m seriously failing at the organization thing so far this year. I got off to a good start, but then it came to a screeching halt (right around the time I ran over My Cowboy with my truck — ahem). I did go through a lot of paper last month, but it was all […]
