Quilting ~ Stitching for the Soul

I stopped by the The Stitchin Post yesterday and was surprised to run into some Quilt Roadie friends from North Carolina and Connecticut.  It reminded me of how blessed I am to have friends all over the world.  This is like the modern day Quilting Bee!

I am a firm believer that quilting brings the best out in most people.  The sharing, the giving and the creating feeds the soul like none other.

After spending the last week in Minnesota I know that we humans have more in common than not and opening ones heart may be a risk but most of the time you will find goodness at the door.  I will forever cherish the time, the laughter and the camaraderie.


When I came home I jumped right into finishing my Halloween decorating and came across a quilt that screamed my grandson's name.  Why keep quilts folded up in the closet when it might make someone's day.  My DIL said when he woke up from his nap he came out and said...Whoa, Cool...LOL

The quilt is called Sew Spooky by The Quilt Company

Have a wonderful Fall Day and I hope your needle is moving :)

  2. Yes, opening up one's heart can be a wonderful thing. I have yet to meet a quilter I didn't like; actually forming a few new friendships along the way. That looks like a great Halloween quilt and so great that the cute little guy gets to enjoy it. Did a little hand sewing today, stitching down a binding.

  4. Absolutely agree with you on all counts. We're more alike than not. Our grandchildren are precious and deserve the gift of ourselves in any way that we can give. Every time he looks at the quilt he'll think of you.

  5. It obviously was love at first sight with his new quilt. And, I agree, quilting has changed my perspective in so many ways - in myself and the sharing with others. Why, I even comment on your various postings. Something I NEVER would have done before!lol

  6. I want to see a pic of Dale holding her 4 yards of flannel fabric. That is such a "Dale" thing to do. Looks like you-all had a great trip. Thanks for sharing.

    For those of you who loved the Bee fabrics in Riviera Rose, you will be happy to know @reneenanneman has a new range called Beehive by @andoverfabrics that has an additional 8 new colors of bee prints and gorgeous coordinating gingham and Jacobean prints. Im planning on stocking up soon! Those ginghams are very useful!
