  • Lucky Stars Clue 4

    The “medallion” part of our design is complete. You may choose to stop with Clue 3, or move on with Clue 4 or further… I will keep going until I have it large enough for my king size bed, between 100″ and 105″. This clue is easy to complete, just a bit time consuming with…

  • Knot Today! Intro

    Guess what?!?!?! It’s time to start collecting fabrics for a new mystery. This one is SUPER easy. We have HST and flying geese units and ONE AMAZING DESIGN! This is very good for a beginner or an advanced quilter alike. This design is so much fun! You’re gonna love it! This design requires NO special…

  • Lucky Stars Clue 3

    Sorry this is so quick after Clue 2, but I was totally under water yesterday with a 50 year flood event. What does one do when you’re a castle with a VERY LARGE moat?? I sew… SO, I got clue 3 ready for you… I need to finish sewing these, then I will move on…

  • Lucky Stars Clue 2

    Ready or not, let’s keep sewing on our medallion quilt, our sew along. Remember we are sewing together. I make one unit for the instructions, otherwise, we are stitching along “in real time”! Let’s get stitching! Show me your flying geese!!! Happy Stitching… ~Debi

  • Medallion Design

    I have designed a medallion quilt top. This one starts at 48″ and can finish as large as about 102″ (or more). I love it so much, made me want to stitch on it right away. Wondering if you’d like me to make it a “quilt-along” and we can stitch it together. I have everything…

  • Better Today

    I don’t know about you, but WOW! I didn’t see that coming. I expected jet lag which wasn’t too bad for this trip. I was tired and my feet were grapefruits (if you’ve seen me, I am a really tiny person and this was so out of character). The feet took two days to feel…

  • Dark or Light?

    When you’re making a mystery quilt (any quilt really), do you prefer a lighter background or a darker one? I think I have this silly unwritten rule in my head that all backgrounds must be light. I really need to jump out of this silly box and shake it up! For example, I had originally…

  • Classic Vintage

    Today was the day I got to sit for a few hours with block design books and peruse through to find those “normal” blocks, the “go-to” blocks of eras past. I found so many I wanted to use, but alas a quilt can only be so big! I found most quilts had lattice as well,…

  • Still Here

    I have been very busy with life for a few weeks, we have had extra grandchildren in the house. My sewing room became bedroom to a 16 year old grandson who sleeps like a hibernating bear! I haven’t had the time or energy to go in there and “work” since he got here. Now that…

  • Preparing the FUN…

    Our grandchild count in the house has been more than normal for the past few weeks. While we have the extras and my studio has become a bedroom, I have been working a lot on organizing fabrics and designs… getting ready to dig in and have some fun. My life recently has found me shoulder…
