Shop Talk: A Simple Guide to Quilt Batting with Jamie

When I first started quilting, I really didn’t know much about batting. I had just finished the top of my very first quilt and was excited to set out to purchase what was needed for the inner layer. I went to my local box store and picked up a bag of polyester batting. At the time, I didn’t know that there was any other batting types available, but I sewed my quilt, hand quilted it myself and gave it to a friend who was moving away. I wasn’t sure why it didn’t look like the quilts I had seen elsewhere as mine was “fluffier” than...

Sew-In at Home: Learning From Our Mistakes!

Before we started this project, the kids and I were very undecided if we were able to handle such a huge undertaking. None of us really knew how to sew that well, or how to assemble a quilt for that matter. But, we knew that this year was one that has brought a lot of new experiences into our lives! So, why not go big - and we meant BIG (and at the time did not really understand just how big of a quilt it was.) Understanding that we were going to have a lot of roadblocks, and hiccups, we...

Sew-In at Home: A Christmas Quilt

Welcome back to the Sew-In with Nathan and Sayley! The Christmas Quilt is FINISHED! Thank you all so much for following along on our journey as we learned all about quilting and explored the joys and easy companionship that come along with this timeless craft. The Sew-In started while Nathan and Sayley were spending countless hours at home from school this last year. Even during difficult times, I believe that learning and family time keep the children grounded. The "sewing" days are my favorite as we spend hours talking, laughing, learning, and sewing. So many memories are being made, as...

SEW-IN: Keep Calm & Quilt On - The Beginning

Quilting, throughout time, has brought calm and quiet to households, and this remains true in mine today. My two little children, Nathan (10) and Sayely (8), are home from school and a bit worried about all confusing times that we are facing at the moment (e.g. Coronavirus).  So, when times get to be too much, especially for children, I have always found it marvelous having a new skill to practice or project to work on! This brings us to our first installment of our limited edition series, featuring novice sewers Nathan and Sayley, sewing their first projects on a Singer...

Cozy Christmas Quilt Top -- for the Christmas Eve Finish!

December 24th, 2017 This year I made haste and got all of our Christmas presents wrapped and under the tree so we could relax and have an enjoyable day on Christmas Eve as a family.  In the afternoon, we made a yummy casserole for supper, frosted Christian's 18th birthday chocolate cake... then settled in for a long afternoon of Christmas movies and time together.  It was one of my most enjoyable times on record, I believe.  I sewed and sewed and sewed, drank coffee, the family mingled, talked, napped and in between we went from one old movie to the...

Christmas Jammies 2006

Well, I did it. I accomplished the task. I wondered if I would actually complete it, but I did. Despite the busy-ness of the season, despite the last-minute-rush of eBay Christmas listings and client purchases and wrapped for shipment, despite the shopping that needed done, and decorating, etc... Granted, the jammies weren't totally completed until the "second" Christmas Eve we spent as a family, but nonetheless, they turned out darling, and I am quite pleased. I even ventured into new sewing territory by creating ALL felled seams. Now here is the BIG question (attention all sewing gurus): What is the...
