Hiatus and NTT

Happy Needle and Thread Thursday!  Well friends, I've been taking my doctor's advice to heart and resting my neck as much as possible, and other than making a binding for a quilt that is currently being longarmed, I didn't sew a single stitch this week.  I do have something to share though.  Take a look at this finished quilt, made by a student in one of my classes back in August (she is quilterinsearcy on Instagram).

She used the Scattered pattern from Stash Statement, but customized it with her own color palette.  Isn't it awesome?  This quilt even won a blue ribbon in their local fair!  I just love seeing finishes from my classes, and I especially love knowing that my students have fun with the technique.

If your guild is looking for programming in 2019, I have just a couple of open months left.  Contact me soon (email button on my right sidebar), and have fun learning how to turn your scraps into a one-of-a-kind masterpiece!

Since I don't have any finishes of my own to share this week, I am delighted to share a few more highlights from last week's party than usual.  And WOW!  Y'all are really bringing it this holiday season.  Nancy at Grace and Peace Quilting linked up this fun Party Quilt.

Kris at Sew Sunshine shared this beautiful improv mini, called River Walk.

This quilt, called Turning Tiles is by Laura at Slice of Pi Quilts, and it is currently featured in McCall's Quilting!

I love the scrappy goodness of this quilt by Nann at With Strings Attached.

Vicki's Crafts and Quilting shared this fun Island Batik Christmas wreath quilt.

Check out this fantastic scrappy quilt by Cynthia at Quilting is More Fun Than Housework.  These colors are so happy!

And finally, I cannot get over the awesomeness of this Flight Path quilt by Liz at Savor Every Stitch.  OMG- that quilting!!!

Oh my goodness!  I could easily have picked several more to showcase.  Y'all are finishing the year strong, and I am loving all of the eye candy while I'm on my little hiatus.  It's time to show off this week's projects.  Let's link up!

1You can link finished projects or WIP's , but just keep it about quilting and sewing!
2. Link to your specific post (not to your home page!) to make it easier for others.
3. Please remember to spread the word and post my button or a text link.  
4. Spread the comment love far and wide!
5. Following me is not a requirement to link, but is so very appreciated!

*If you're new to the party, here's a helpful tip for linking up- select "Auto Crop"  when selecting your thumbnail photo.  For some reason, trying to crop your own image results in the dreaded "white question mark box," and we definitely want to see your awesome work!  :)


  1. I hope the rest is really helping your neck. The best part about being a designer is seeing others use our patterns, and @quilterinsearcy made a beautiful quilt!!

  2. Oh goodness, neck and back pain can be so awful. Praying you are well very soon. Rest always helps. All beautiful quilts. The quilting on Scattered is awesome.

  3. May the rest helped, and you that you will be able to sew soon. This quilt is beautiful, congratulations to you, and your student ;)

  4. Knowing how you love to stay busy, having to rest cannot be easy! I hope it helps and you can be back to your old self very soon!

  5. Oh boy, I hope your neck gets better. I learned from experience to not push it though and take extra time or you might end up back resting again. You have lots of design time and I am sure you will use this time to be creative. Thanks for posting my quilt River Walk in your line up this week. :)

  6. Thanks for the feature this week! I hope you are feeling better soon. It's so hard for us quilters to sit still and not be able to do what we love!

  7. Hope you get lots of good rest and pampering while you recover. I am sure when you return to your needle and thread it will be with renewed vigor and recharged batteries. Sending hugs and healing vibes.

  8. I am on a roll. The quilt top of mine that you shared is now a finish :)

  9. I hope you feel better soon. Congrats to your student for winning a ribbon.


Thanks so much for your comment and for visiting! I read and appreciate every single comment, and I reply to each one as soon as I can. If you don't hear back from me, you might be a no-reply blogger. :)
