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 […]

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. […]

Low-Volume Fabric

Low-Volume Fabric

I’ve been asked several times what I mean when I say “low-volume fabric”, so today I thought I’d address that, especially since I just recently mentioned that I want to reorganize my fabric stash to include a low-volume bin. Low-volume fabric is basically just fabric that has low color value. They are usually prints, and […]

Hospital Sketches

Well, I caved and started a new quilt. What’s more, I talked my sister into doing it, too! She’s my partner in crime for most of my quilting activities — how could she say no? But when you see it, you’ll stop wondering why I gave in. It’s a new Quilt-Along by Barbara Brackman, hosted […]

If you’re participating in the Summertime Samplers Block-of-the-Month program through Sew Sweet Quilt Shop this year, we’re already up to Block 6 this month!

Valentine Stitchery

Valentine Stitchery

I felt the urge to make a new Valentine’s project this year, and I wanted to do something with embroidery. I thought about designing something completely new, but I’m still in love with my “Be Mine” Valentine appliqué wall quilt pattern, so I decided to use it to make a little stitchery mini quilt. Here’s […]

Red & White Quilts

A new book was just released last month (by Martingale) featuring a collection of the most gorgeous Red & White Quilts. Fourteen designers were asked to create a quilt for this book, and honestly, I cannot pick a favorite! What’s not to love about red and white? And the book itself is beautiful and fun […]

Making Little Things

I spent some time lately making some little things. Our guild is having a handmade bazaar at this year’s Brunswick Pecan Festival (this weekend in Brunswick, MO), and members are making handmade items to put in the booth so we can raise a little money for the guild. If you’re anywhere in the vicinity of […]
