  • Quilting A Fight Song

    Sometimes Crafter February 13, 2015

    As Christmas was approaching I had an email asking if I was still accepting quilts returned in time for Christmas gifting.  It just so happens that I was, but just barley.  Jennifer asked if I could quilt the chorus from the University of Michigan fight song onto a quilt she made for her son, who is currently a student there.  I just love being a part of a gift like this.  Quilting a quilt that will be loved and cherished…

  • Quilting Buzzing Bees

    Sometimes Crafter August 28, 2014

    I had the opportunity to quilt one of the sweetest quilts recently.  It was a sampler quilt with so many bright, cheerful fabrics, depicting all the different seasons.  I went searching to see what this quilt is, and it looks to be part of the Quilty Fun Sew Along & Blog Tour for Lori Holt’s book Quilty Fun (affiliate link). As I do with most of my quilting requests, I sent along several quilting ideas that I thought might work for this…

  • Fox Has Cathedral Windows

    Sometimes Crafter July 21, 2014

    Another recently quilted top sent in to be quilted.  Callie did an amazing job piecing this Fox Has Spots block of the month quilt.  She went with the Cathedral Window design and I think it worked out quite perfectly for the top.  Even though I mostly use the Statler (computer portion of my Gammill) to quilt the tops, it’s still a lot of work making sure everything rolls straight and lines up correctly.  It’s no easy job with this pattern,…

  • Gallifreyan Quilting

    Sometimes Crafter July 2, 2014

    I’m a huge Doctor Who fan.  I’ve been watching it since I was a little girl and it aired on PBS.  I don’t remember much of the original Doctor Who, but i’ve watched all of the newer ones since they began airing.  I’m actually a season behind right now.  I hate to watch knowing it will end.  I also have a hard time watching, knowing that I will need to do nothing but watch.  There is no working on other…

  • Star Quilt Custom Quilting

    Sometimes Crafter June 23, 2014

    I just finished quilting this beautiful star quilt that Beca made. This was a custom quilting job – boarders, sashing and blocks were all quilted separately.  The fabrics were just beautiful and I especially loved that the “background” fabric was a tiny print.  It was such a sweet quilt.  I took many photos of it and the quilting.  Unfortunately, my SD Card must have a bad sector and almost all of the photos I took are corrupt.  So sad.  This was one of just…

  • Geometric Quilting

    Sometimes Crafter June 3, 2014

    I just had the opportunity to quilt an amazing quilt for a good friend.  It is so hard not being able to share the quilt and it’s quilting with you!  I am grateful for friends that like my quilting ideas and let me run free with them.  This was a beautifully graphical quilt and I loved how the graphical quilting turned out.  Even more than that, I love getting to be a small part of something big for a friend.

    Despite the fact that it’s been quiet here on the blog-front, i’ve actually been quite busy quilting for others.  Much of what i’ve been doing lately i’m not able to share, as they have been for future publications as well as for Spring Quilt Market.  When the time arrives, I will share fuller pictures of those pieces of work, but for now I thought i’d share a little peek of those quilts, as well as quilts I can share more of.…

  • Quilting The Day Away

    Sometimes Crafter February 10, 2014

    It has been cold and snowy here these past few days, but I didn’t mind one bit.  I have been thoroughly enjoying quilting on my new machine.  It has opened up so many more possibilities for me and i’m so excited to explore them all.  I’m really glad to have a quilt waiting in the wings that needed some custom quilting attention.  I am so excited to see this one quilted, and it’s such a bummer I have to wait…
