Posey Quilts grand opening!

Hear ye! Hear ye! Posey Quilts has officially opened its doors and is ready for business!  We literally just finished up the website redesign which means many of the products are still being added (that’s a manual process, adding them each individually) but we at least have a start. We are starting off by selling…

Acres of diamonds

I remember in business school years ago one of the phrases we were taught about was called “acres of diamonds”.  The phrase was created by Russell Conwell in the 1800’s and it meaning was each person can find their own “acres of diamonds” in their own back yard.  Close to where they live, work, have…

Geometric Quilt

I should have big news the next time I have an update. Okay, I can’t wait. I’m starting a new venture.  I’ll be selling digitized quilting designs for computerized long armers.  Once I get about 1500 designs uploaded then I’ll also be adding in laser cut quilt kits. No time frame on that second part…

Blazing Star – finally quilted

Whew!  I am finally starting to catch up with everything that’s fallen by the wayside for the past 18 months. I can’t remember if I mentioned this before, but I decided to go back to my alma mater for another degree. Silly me – I thought as a mature adult, I’d get the work done…

The Watcher

I’m still whittling down my 2017 UFO’s. I corrected the blocks that had a rotated piece in them yesterday and was so glad there were only a handful. That’s always a challenge trying to fix something once the whole top is finished.  In the meantime, I had this kit from Libs Elliott which I bought…

borders and corners

Argh! It always helps me to let a quilt hang for a few days so that I can see if I’ve messed anything up. This quilt is 96×96″ so sometimes it’s hard to see the forest for the trees, so I took a picture of it and it was immediately obvious that the dark red…

sampler quilt finished

And that’s a wrap – other than clipping a few threads.  I started this one sometime last year; it’s a sampler based off of several different quilts in Amy Ellis’ “Modern Heritage” book. She had a suggested layout and I followed it for the most part although I added in quite a bit of negative…

Outlander

I’m slowly making progress on another UFO from 2017.  This one was a mystery quilt called Outlander from Ebony Love. This is the middle section of the quilt; I think it’s 33″ x 33″ but don’t hold me to that.   This is the quilt that I bought two of at Christmas 2016; one for me…

Eat ’em up Kats!

The latest quilt wasn’t technically in my 2017 UFO pile – because I had bought the kit in 2016 at the quilt festival…and never even started it!  The kit wasn’t cheap; I think it was over $150 and only included enough fabric to make it 40×48. They call it a lap-sized quilt but that’s about…

bias, bias, and more bias

I had 4 quilting projects that were started in 2017 but not finished and my goal was to knock out at least 2 of the tops.  I finished those 2 by the end of the year so I had a choice to either quilt one or both of those, or to continue trying to knock…

post-Christmas update

                                        Our quilt guild typically has a featured speaker at each monthly meeting and then the following day is a workshop where either a specific technique is taught, or perhaps we start or even finish a…

Whew! An update!

It’s been a crazy few months.  I’ve been taking classes full-time which quite honestly has kept me absolutely swamped night and day.  A friend called me today and said if that was the case I was probably regretting my decision to go back for another degree. Not at all!  I like a challenge and this…
