Tube Quilting from the Missouri Star

I am going to be using the Summer in the Park tutorial for my strips.

Podcast 9 is available!

I want to apologize right now for the roboty sound in this podcast. It was the best quality that I could bring you after I lost my previous podcast.

I hope you enjoy. It is a bit of a ramble. :)

My two sweet bears - Pumpkin and Vanilla - at the outdoor movies.
Have a wonderful day!

Lost my Podcast!

So bummed!
My podcast is on my iPhone and I have no way of getting it on to my computer. Going to have to re-record it all. So sad!

Organizing the Pegboard

My new pegboard! Love the way that all my notions fit in this!

The full view.
Everything hangs on the wall beautifully.

So...setting up my cabinet and making this pegboard has really helped me to get all of my quilting stuff in order. All of my rulers fit perfectly. I am super excited by how perfectly things fit.

The pegboard is a standard size - 24 x 48 inches. I just added a 1x2 (cut to the dimesions of the pegboard) to the back to make a frame. That is what is holding up the pegboard.

My 5 year old, Vanilla, helped me pick the bright red paint and paint this bad boy! :) Just took one of their samples for like $2.50 and the whole thing was painted.

Now...I need to get quilting!

Met up with Susan...the History Quilter

Me at the quilt show! Miles of smiles!

Susan the History Quilter and Me. :)
Thank you, Susan, for your kind...and funny words about meeting me in Long Beach at the Quilt Festival. I am REALLY tall. I am an inch over six feet tall, and most people don't expect that of me.

It was great to meet up with a fellow blogger.

I am going to try and attach the pictures that I took at the Long Beach Quilt Festival, using a web album. We shall see if this works.

Decluttering! My podcast is also finally out again...

Finally getting organized!

These fit so perfectly!

I really LOVE those organizers! Wonderful!

I am Inspired by Sandy at Quilting...for the Rest of Us. Her Decluttering podcast got me moving and I found a great place to store my fabric.

Please head over to my podcast, and have a listen! :)

Countdown to Christmas Fabric giveaway!

A fabric giveaway!
There are 6 charm packs in this bundle.

Here is the line of fabric...
I am going to be giving away six packages of charms in the same line to those who comment on my podcast and blog. I will be posting a new podcast this week.

My question that I would like you to respond to is about fabric.

When I go to the quilt store, I am drawn to fabrics for others. I don't think to look for things that I want, but for what I can do for others. It has left me with a stash filled with children's fabrics.  I find myself wondering - When you go to buy fabric, who do you buy it for?

The drawing will be on September 12, 2011.
