Something's Missing

Happy Needle and Thread Thursday, y'all.  As I mentioned in last week's NTT, I dropped off my beloved Regina Bernina for regular servicing on the way to QuiltCon last week (ps- it was AMAZING, and I can't wait for next year!).  Anyway, she's all spiffed up and ready to go, so I'm planning to pick her up tomorrow.  The shop is about 1.5 hours away- almost exactly halfway between here and Nashville, so dropping her off on the way to QuiltCon was easy, but it's not exactly a quick pickup.  Instead, while waiting for her to be ready, since getting home I've been sorting and pressing my yellow scraps, which are next up in my giant color wheel project.  I've also taken this time to finish up the pattern for the secret quilt I showed last week.

So, since I don't have any fun eye candy to share from my studio, let's get right to last week's party highlights.  This sweet, scrappy finish is by Something Rosemade-

Jan at The Colorful Fabriholic linked up this pretty plus quilt-

Amber at Sew With Sparkles shared this Alison Glass feather quilt, along with a great story of her first foray into quilting-

and finally, I am in love with this fun, scrappy heart quilt by LeeAnna at Not Afraid of Color-

Wow!  Between browsing all of the fantastic projects from last week's party and all of the amazing inspiration at QuiltCon last weekend, I'm itching to get going on those yellow scraps.  I can't wait to get my machine back tomorrow!

If you didn't make it to Nashville, you should definitely look through all of the photos on Instagram to marvel at all of the gorgeous modern quilts.  I know they'll spark your creativity!

Alright, let's party!

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. Curious minds want to know why you didn't take your machine to the Bernina dealer in Memphis (Bartlet)? I think I know what shop you did take your machine it's about an hour from me and it's huge and got some great fabric-----(in Franklin ?) Have you ever been to what I call the Hoarder's place------don't want to name it publicly.

  2. My Bernina was in for service and it took a month but was worth the wait and the cost of repair. It's a very old machine and is now sewing beautifully. In the meantime I did lots of cutting/prepping just like you're doing. Have fun with the yellows.

  3. Ooh, I feel the pain of being without your Regina Bernina!! Hopefully you've got her back now and she's purring like a kitten. I'll bet your mind is overflowing with creative energy and inspiration from QuiltCon!

  4. Oooohhh…..a color wheel project! I can't wait to see what you come up with. As always, thanks for hosting.

  5. Ahhhh...thanks for the feature and the fun linkup! Quiltcon is a dream at the moment but I love seeing the work and one day hope to see it in person!

  6. Amber's Feather quilt is awesome!
