So Happy So Happy I've been blog hopping this morning and found a thread off of this post and that post and thought I would share it with you. It's about quality in the sewing and quilting industry. To get the whole picture, I also recommend the follow up posts too.I do love Maddie's rules. It's spot on why I been out of the loop for so long. Kids before quilts,
Scraps and Strings I had a little fun constructing some VW buses last weekend. This bus is called a splitty because of the split front window, and it's often seen as the iconic VW bus. I used some wild prints for the buses, and fused the shapes on a white background. Scraps and Strings
A Few Scraps A Few Scraps So last week I made myself a couple luggage tags, attached them to my bags-full-of-quilts, and flew to Houston sans children to go to quilt market. I just spent an hour trying to write up my experience of quilt market and I give up. The following words apply: fast, chatter, awkward, blisters, flattering, industry, thrilling, uncertain, lucky, powerful, big, touching, grateful, realization. How about something concrete to offer you instead? Like how I made these luggage tags in about 30 minutes just a few hours before my flight?
Yes this is a definite derailing moment. Look what arrived in the post the other day. Here is the back story. Pin Tangle - Pin Tangle Pin Tangle - Pin Tangle
Moose on the Porch Quilts My blog officially has been moved! It has taken longer than it should because it is in conjunction with completely redoing my entire site. This is the "soft" opening. Right now there are a lot of things that still need to be fixed. Moose on the Porch Quilts
I can't believe that this is the final regular edition of Farmer's Wife Friday. Carla and I have some more progress posts planned. Because our project is not really finished. Not until our quilts are actually put together and quilted! This week, I am foregoing the last letter of the book in favor of a very special guest blogger. Grandma G , as she is known to the blogging community, and I became good friends beginning a couple of years ago. Live a Colorful Life Live a Colorful Life

Quilt Dad Hello and happy first week of spring, everyone! (Wait, it is spring, right? This week, Mother Nature doesn't seem to agree …) I don't know if it's the change in the season, the fact that I'm settling back in to a bit of a routine after a period of great upheaval, or the impending release of my book, but I'm starting to feel like I just might be getting my groove back. I'm sewing a bit, browsing some awesome new fabric lines in my free time, and planning a friend's quilt that he commissioned me to make for him (a king-sized quilt -- eek!)
Hello Everyone! I am so excited to be a part of the Mystery Sew Red Sew-along that is being hosted by Jimmy Bean's! If you are not already participating in this project, you can click on the link above to get the scoop!! This is block #5 for the series. This block measures 10 1/2" square. I used a square from a layer cake of precut fabrics for the background but any fabric you have lying around that meets the size requirement will work. Sew Serendipity
Keyka Lou — Home Some venerable activewear names simply balk at the thought of quitting. Six familiar firms — each of which built a business and a reputation on one specific sport — are refreshing their images with a variety of strategies, from additional categories, trunk shows and endorsement deals to ad campaigns that reflect their history. Executives at Converse, Lacoste, Rossignol, Head, Adidas and Champion — firms that are between 47 and 88 years old — feel that part of their appeal to women is their athletic heritage. Adidas: always cool, always creative. “Fortunately, now what’s old is new and what’s new is old,” said Jim Solomon, senior vice president of marketing for Converse, the North Reading, Mass., athletic footwear company that opened in 1909. Still widely recognized for its Chuck Taylor canvas basketball sneakers introduced in 1923, Converse is focusing now on its performance basketball legacy.
