Or I should say, I'm back to sewing again. We have moved, unpacked, are fairly organized, sold our old home, and I am ready to sew again. I need a gift quilt in a few months, so I evaluated my stash and some patterns.  I had a lot of greens and blues, so I decided to m...

If interested in my year in review, which includes a lot more than just quilting, head on over to my family blog at www.rachelmhblog.blogspot.com.  I like to document the highlights of the year, and make my family blog into a book every 2-3 years.  I enjoying looking t...

I made this quilt a few weeks ago as it seemed the perfect gift for our sweet contractors who are building our dream home.  I was able to incorporate their logo in the label.  I found several free 'house' quilt patterns online, picked one, and adapted it a bit....

Not exactly what I named it, but it is a cute name!  I received my magazines today in the mail and it never gets old.  So thankful I get to do this.  I haven't made as much lately, but I really enjoy trying to come up with something the magazines will like.  I know it'...

I've gotten so many requests for this pattern that I am going to show it again.  If you'd like,  feel free to copy and paste it into a word type document, then you can print it off at your convenience. Super easy and makes a great lap size or toddler size quilt....

My apologies to my quilting friends for the lack of posts lately.  Things are so busy and hectic around here.  We are in the thick of building a new home.  So exciting, but also very consuming with all the decisions that have to be made.  Can't make decisions without i...

A few weeks ago someone from WBIR's Live at Five at Four show came to our home to interview me about visiting my granddaughter in Scotland, where she met Prince Harry.  While they were here, my abundance of quilts was noticed, and she asked me if she could do an interv...

Pattern and kit by Kathleen Andrews of Kwiltart.com purchased at the Spring Paducah quilt show. For me this was a challenging pattern.  My Janome needle doesn't adjust, so sometimes I have trouble with the 1/4" seam, which was imperative for this pattern.  I tried real...

I'm probably a little late to the game of 3D quilts.  Not sure if that is what they are called, but that is my name for them.  I've always thought they were so cool - you know, the bargello is one or the simple shadow quilts. I'm working on my Kwiltart.com Convex...

Last fall I was determined to get a king sized quilt made before Christmas of 2018.  I purchased Kate Spain's pattern, Felicity, and ordered Moda's Basic Gray Berry Merry fabric.  After completing some other commitments, I set to work on it.

I don't do a lot of custom q...
