Something Stitched--UFO/WIP

Several years ago I bought a box of hand stitched vintage dresden plate quilt blocks at the estate auction of a local philanthropist.  The outer curved edge and center were turned under and basted ready for applique to a background block.  the plates are almost 16" in diameter.  There are 18 of them.  None of them lie flat.  They are stained but not worn or faded.  There are small prints , large prints, feedsacks, geometrics and novelties.

Sewing Room Texas

Audio book contest AND I need book reviews

Hello from snowy Kansas! We could get up to a foot of snow before this storm is over, but I’m staying warm and cozy in my office today. Luckily the electricity is still on and I’m typing away, while watching the snowy scene just outside my window.

I have three bird feeders right outside my office window. I took…

Variations on a theme - the Christmas chicken quilts that landed in Oak Park, Illinois

My kids are giving me a hard time, lovingly, but a hard time nonetheless.  It would seem that over the course of creating the 15 quilts of the project 2013 - The Year of the Christmas Quilt, I became obsessed (their word, not mine) with chicken.  Now granted, I do like the idea of chickens and fresh eggs and non-chemically enhanced, free range chickens providing the meat that…
