MOST RECENT

My BlueBird Vintage Quilt is finally finished after sitting in my WIP pile for a few years. This quilt uses the #bluebirdfabrics from the collaborative @cottonandsteel collection from a few years back, mixed with a subtle plus background from their basics. The block is from @thimbleblossoms Simply Retro Book. .
.
Quilt top measures approximately 60x80 inches and was quilted by @stitchedincolor .

This is a lovely afternoon. Feeling good, I am soooo ready to watch season 2 Downton Abbey for the first time. I know, I am way behind the hype. Also, #nurmilintushawl is coming along just fabulous. Except for the “cough cough” not so correct lace pattern. Hopefully, the second lace part will look good. I was and am not ripping it out. Shawls seems to take forever!!! A little #simplyretrobook to browse. I am getting back to myself. #knittersofinstagram #knitting #shawl #projectorganizesewingroom up next. Happy Tuesday! ☀️

Very happy with how my most recent quilt turned out, I think my mom is going to love it!

#igquiltfest Day 31 “WIP” this month I plan to tackle my newest WIP and one of my oldest - my #psychadelicbabyblock quilt from #quiltcon2018 workshop with @sewkatiedid and my #sweetlifequilt from #simplyretrobook by @thimbleblossoms - pretty psyched actually #sewmystash2018

Ohh Holy Cow 🐄 🐮!!! I may have made my most favorite single Quilty block of all time (3 years now quilting). I am sew in LOVE with my final #dwellblock from @thimbleblossoms #simplyretrobook for my #bandcdwellswap quilt!!! Pure Quilty B&C Block Perfection!! 💛💗❤️💗💛 #bonnieandcamille #bonnieandcamillefabric #marmaladefabric #aprilshowersfabric #scrumptiousfabric #rubyfabric #littlerubyfabric #quiltyperfection Now to sash & border a quilt for hubby’s wall quilt request.

I’m so crazy about this Playground quilt from my Simply Retro book that @angbrandl posted yesterday- I can’t stop thinking about it! I think my littlest guy needs one just like it, don’t you? Thanks for sharing Angie! 💚 #simplyretrobook #bonnieandcamille

I never seem to remember to post these at Christmas, and sadly haven’t gotten a picture of them with snow yet, but here are my fabric-twinning Christmas quilts, with outtakes, 😉 in our wild backyard for #igquiltfest ‘quilts in the wild’ day. I love pulling these out at Christmas. 😁🎄❤️ And my favorite part is all the memories they bring back of fun sewing days with @oliveandellequilts and @eglover1. 😊

A baby boy quilt in my favorite Bonnie and Camille blues and greens for one of my favorite quilty friends’ newest baby boy! 💙💚 @aagolden84’s baby, Reid, hung out with us while we sewed on Saturday afternoon and he was the cutest, most chill little guy. Pattern is a downsize of Camille @thimbleblossoms Playground quilt from her book Simply Retro, and I just love it. Fabrics are all Bonnie and Camille from various lines. And the back is super soft flannel. ☺️ _______________________________________________________ #playgroundquilt #simplyretrobook #thimbleblossoms #bonnieandcamille #babyquilt #babyboyquilt #angquilts #ang2018quilts

My guys took some amazing pictures in the sun today. Being totally heroic, because it’s freezing. #thimbleblossoms #simplyretrobook #pinwheels #30minsewingdaily

This quilt was an experiment that didn’t go as well as I’d like. The batting I had on hand was super thin so I thought I’d try doubling up. Then the machine I usually quilt with needed shop time, so I decided to try and quilt it on my #vintagesinger I use for piecing. The result was a ton of shifting. On the bright side this quilt will be fluffy and warm for next winter.
This quilt is my last finish for the first quarter of the #finishalong2018 The pattern comes from the book #simplyretrobook by @thimbleblossoms

#igquiltfest These four books were on the top of my pile which means they’re the four I’ve used most recently. All of them are GREAT, and I’ve noted what I’ve made from each—@amybutlerdesign #littlestitchesforlittleones (Patchwork Playtime quilt), @j_q_adams #prettyinpatchworkholidays (Modern Maples quilt), @thimbleblossoms #simplyretrobook (Dwell Quilt) and @aneelahoey #stitchedsewingorganizers (Handy Fold-Up Pouch and See-It-All Pouch)

Day 16 💕💗📚 Prompt: Books😁 picture 1 are my absolute favorite/ used quilting books and I love all the ones in these photos!!

Where would I be without my trusty pattern books? Completely lost! 🌈📚I have spent hours reading these inspiring books, planning projects and learning from the best. #igquiltfest #day16 #quilt #quilting #quiltersofinstagram #farmgirlvintage #simplifybook #simplyretrobook #thimbleblossoms #beeinmybonnet #IGQuiltFest #quiltbooklove @amyscreativeside

This is my small but growing quilt book collection—I have a long wishlist. 😂 I tend to mostly buy patterns. 😁 But I do love these books and have made several blocks and quilts from them! ——
I love @thimbleblossoms Simply Retro so much that when I lost it after our sabbatical to Taiwan a few years ago I bought another. It turned up in our recent move and now I have two!
I love this quilty community on Instagram and I’m pretty excited about hitting 600 followers today (which is a big deal to me)! 🤗To say thanks and since it goes along perfectly with #igquiltfest quilt book day, I’d love to give one away! **UPDATE: giveaway closed**
Simply like this post and follow me. Tag anyone you think would like the book. Winner will be picked on Monday. Good luck! 😊

Day 15 prompt: guilts and people. Oh my gosh! I had no idea I took so many 😁 Here are a few of my favorites. The first one is of my son who very graciously dedicates couch time with every new quilt to test it out! He’s amazing! Number two is my dad and his response to his quilt, ❤️💕💗a two year process and amazing pattern thank you Mc Kenna Ryan😊💕#mckennaryandesigns . Picture 3 is my youngest son holding the quilt I made for my grandma on her 90th birthday! He is always up for helping his mom hold quilts for pictures, he’s amazing too 😊 #4 is a quilt I pieced and finished at a quilt retreat! #thimbleblossoms #simplyretrobook (which is one of my favorite pattern books, and last but not least is my sugar skull quilt #tulapink #sugarskullsqal . It made me feel cool again😁 #igquiltfest @amyscreativeside #ilovequilting

Quilts and people #igquiltfestday15
My sis sent me this pic of her christmas quilt (and matching pillow we whipped up while she was here) still on her bed, it makes me so happy when my quilts are loved and used. And I guess I better start on a spring/summer one...😁😉

It took me forever and a day to finish my #freshquilt, so it’s definitely my choice for Day 9 of #igquiltfest - “Finally Finished.” It is a humongous quilt at 96x96, and there are 448 HSTs... That’s way too many for my brain to want to do in a short period of time, so I took a looooong break in the middle of putting the blocks together, but eventually I did get it all done. It’ll be a forever favorite. #bonnieandcamille #marmaladefabric #simplyretrobook #thimbleblossoms

A 2017 Christmas present. I started working on it a week before Christmas. I lost my “sew-jo” somehow. I’m slowly getting back to it. #camilleroskelley #adorn #scrapquilt #simplyretro #simplyretrobook

Finished longarming this beauty for a customer yesterday. I've always loved this pattern, if I ever finish up some of my WIP's, I'll move onto this project next 😍 We used just a basic swirls design. If you've ever wondered how much it would cost for us to longarm your quilt, just go to my profile @jennthurston and follow the link in the profile. Enter the information for your quilt and it estimates the price for you. Did I mention we have free return shipping (domestic) for the month of March? .
