Charity Quilt finish and update ….

My Charity quilt is all done, except being washed and shipped. If you would like to make one, you can request a kit here . They ship you all the material, the pattern instructions, you just have to provide thread, batthing and some love.

We had sunny weekend so I took some pictures off the quilt on the porch. I quilted it on my New Joy Gold Standard frame. I need to get some more pantos, but I can go only about 6,5″ wide. Do you have any suggestions for good, easy to stitch pantos?
I did the binding on the machine. I like to hand stitch the binding, but this quilt quilt be washed a lot. I am happy how it turn out!


Talking about LOVE, I want to share the nice Surprise I got from my hubby for Valentine’s Day.

Isn’t he the BEST husband!
He did great! I was out and when I got home I found the lovely arrangement that was delivered.

What is Valentine’s Day without Chocolate?
I love taking pictures and I couldn’t resist showing some.

He also made chicken pot pie that was very delicious, and he didn’t use any recipe.

… and apple tart for desert. I know I am very lucky!
I hope everybody that is in love had a wonderful holiday!

I hope you made it to the end of my long post. 🙂 Here is the “Be Warm” block appliquĂ©d.


It has been so cold lately and I was hoping it will get warmer if I work on that block! :)) Well it’s raining now, but we still have snow on the ground.

Happy sewing!

Quilt Shops Hopping and Quilting!

Here is an update on out Eastern PA Shop-hopping.

This is the quilt at “Quilter’s Pallet” in Fleetwood, made out of the basket blocks. The quilter used wool for the appliquĂ© flowers. It’s one of my favorite.

This is “Happy Sewing Room” quilt. I am a little bias when I say, this is one of my favorite quilt since I quilted it and my mother in law designed and piece the quilt. It was the second quilt I quilted on my New Joy Gold Standard frame.
Here is a close up of the quilt on the frame:

I think the leave design went perfect with the baskets!

This is “Allentown Sewing” quilt:
This hand quilted quilt was a door prize, but either of us, me or Heather didn’t win it.
The quilt was displayed at ”Wooden Bridge” and bellow is their sample that was hand quilted also.
I have few more quilt shops to show you! Till then………..Happy sewing!

Wedding Quilt and Bedroom Curtains

I made curtains for my bedroom. My mom send me this lace fabric, but I didn’t get around to sew them until now.

When we moved to this house I made curtains for the living room, kitchen, my sewing room and now the bedroom. The bedroom took a major renovation. It had a pink carpet and pink stripe wallpaper that was kind a cute, but the hubby didn’t like it :). So we had to strip the wall paper, and we got a new carpet and we paint it. Thanks to our friends Chuck, Heather and Bret for their help! My hubby let me pick the colors and I love them. It has a two different colors on the opposite walls. Here is a picture of the quilt on our bed now:

I started this quilt before our wedding. The fabric was a gift from my mother-in-law. She helped me pick the fabric, but my color choices were based on my favorite color green and my husband’s orange. They go together so nice! :)) What is on your bed?

Happy Sewing!

Another finished UFO

I finished another project in February. This is my “Ribbon Star” table runner:


The back of the table runner looks good, too! I used a fabric from my mom’s stash. I brought it from Bulgaria. It feels so good any time you finish a project, isn’t it?

Happy Sewing!

Super Bowl Quilting, Glow in the Dark, Free Motion Quilting and Food


During the Super Bowl I worked on the binding of my table runner. I am very happy the way it turn out. I used a Glow in the Dark thread for the quilting. You can see it really glows! I tried taking pictures in the dark of my quilt, but it has to be very dark and it’s not working, but it glows!


This was my first time using the darning foot on my Janome and doing stippling. It was fun, but I need more practice! I quilted squares in the four patches and in the middle and did the stippling on the white triangles and that was a challenge.

I made the best Buffalo wings using Alton’s Brown recipe. You can get it here. First you steam the wings for 10 min and then refrigerate for an hour, then bake 20 min each side on a rack. Toss with the sauce of your choice! Delicious!


I made Double Bake Potatoes that were great with the wings! 🙂

Happy Sewing!
