Out of Hibernation

Perhaps it's the sunshine or the beautiful blossoms on the trees outside that inspire me to come out of hibernation and get back onto the blog page. Although it's been a wet winter, we have kept busy sewing and creating new designs. Our latest one (an adorable new Spool quilt) will be featured in an upcoming issue of The Quilt Life, a new magazine by Ricky Tims and Alex Anderson by American Quilter's Society. My copy of the first issue just arrived last week and WOW what a wonderful magazine. If you haven't yet subscribed, I encourage you to do so immediately. Not only does it contain lots of beautiful quilts and inspiration, but also many tips and tricks for making your quilting experience more successful. Speaking of successful quilting, have you checked out our instructional videos on the website yet? I am ready to add more as we would like our site to be a resource library where you can visit when you need help or just fine-tuning. Please let me know what you would like to see included (cutting tips, pressing tips, etc.) It could be anything quilt related and I will do my best to provide a clear demonstration. We have a few extra copies of the Quiltmaker's 100 Blocks magazine and would like to send it to one lucky winner who provides an idea for a new video demo.

Until next time, we send our best to you.

  1. I would love to see some videos on pressing especially for set of long strips, half square triangles and quarter square triangles. Anything especially on the bias.

  2. Will do. Thanks so much for the suggestions.

  3. Jane at Quilter's Inn told me about your blog! Will be keeping up with what you guys are doing!

  4. How about a video on machine quilting or binding corners? Always good tips to share.

  5. It's nice to find you! I am about to embark on the Going to Market pattern, so I will be heading over to your video to see the instructions:)

  6. Happy to have found your blog! I will love following you talented women.
    I would love to see an article on thinking outside the box when it comes to selecting fabrics for your quilt and helping quilters realize that there is no right or wrong... but that it is merely a reflection of what the quilter likes and feels.

  7. Love the two blocks you did. They look like a good BOM to me! The colors you are using are wonderful.

    You two always do amazing things. I sure do miss your shop though. It was the only one around when I moved to CA about 25 years ago.

  8. It was so nice to find your blog - thank you Pam Kitty Morning for pointing the way! Since I have several of your books, I was happy to find you again.

    Just this week, a friend called to ask for help making a binding for a quilt she was making with her granddaughter. They were going to make a pillowcase-style quilt and were going to bind it too.

    It would be great to have a video to direct them to for the process.

    Thank you!

  9. I was so tickled to learn from PamKittyMorning you guys have a blog!!! I can't wait to see you at Market and see all of your new yumminess! xoxo, Monica
