The grand unveiling took place at the shop last Saturday, and I haven’t even had time to blog about them until now!

August Studio Organizing Challenge

June and July blew right by without me even so much as thinking about getting organized! And picking . . . picking is what I’ve been doing . . . on all the other challenges. I do just a little bit on each one, but nothing has been completely finished. I’ve put away a little […]

July 350 Blocks Report

I didn’t blog much this past month! Part of my problem is that it has suddenly become nearly impossible to get my photos from my iPad onto my computer. I have to fuss with it for way too long just to get it to work, and I haven’t had time to devote to that. But […]

Daddy’s Favorite Baby Quilt

In conjunction with the Summertime Samplers, I’m showcasing some options for things you can do with the patterns other than just the quilts that are in the booklet, and offering some bonus patterns along the way — this is another one for you. 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

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 […]

Round Robin

Round Robin

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. […]
