Category: Actually about Sewing!

Eleven Eleven HBCB

Numbers count!  Well, actually humans count numbers. I love Math.  I honestly think anyone who calls it Math should love it, or at least like it.  If not why are you on a first name basis with Mathematics? The rise of the machines. I mean growing love that humans have for sci-fi, science fiction, myth etc.– brings an interesting question to my mind.  Who are we, who am I?  Thinking StarTrek TOS (the original series). I ASK, Who Am I? Kirk (spark…

Can You Cacti? (a Vivi-fied post and MIB Podcast)

This Blog Post has been Vivi-fied* This Blog Post is a transcription/translation of my Minutes In Between (MIB). I use MIB as a way to remember whatever pops into my head, to use as a memory bank. I’m really excited about the line-up I’ve got coming up in the next couple months and I’d like to give a little preview of one of the classes I’m teaching at IQF (International Quilt Festival) October 31, 2016. Can You Cacti? In this…

Beyond Words MIB

first cut was Fishing for the Right Words (yes there is no real ending, this is my raw recording)  If you can’t handle the raw, then click on the second audio below   Yes, indeed–I have a dream.  My dream is to share my stories in my words with the future.  Maybe my end goal is a podcast, but in my Seams and Dreams concepts, I’m smart enough to know that we each have different strengths and…

Old Jeans, Seams and Dreams

Sometimes opportunity knocks, in the form of old jeans in need of new life–and with just a few hours to do the hack. I thought, if you give a fish, vs teach to fish… I have time to make a tutorial video on #snapchat. I spent about an hour doing the first pair BECAUSE OF THE VIDEO!!!  That pair was left with raw edge, but had reinforcement stitches (low tech, aka hand sewing) on the side-seams so pants…

Mardi Gracias

A nice treat on MardiGras to see my Lucky Needlecase in CutLoosePress’s Facebook post. Lucky Needlecase is a great excuse to practice a new quilting style–matchstick or other tight quilting looks great in this small scale project.  Do you practice on purpose?  I typically practice with a solid color and interesting backing.  The solid helps me learn and the fun side is forgiving! This nice Hoffman Batik tricks the eye – see my lines aren’t actually perfect! Ask your local quilts shop to…

Titles, Tales, and a Tree

What’s in a name (or a story), and role they play in art? Words can change our perspective.  A recent art group’s email thread was a conversation on abstract art, titles, and artist messages, and it reminded me of my tree and the choices I made. It was a story of love, so I almost used our initials in the tree, and realized I wanted to include the audience and draw them into the story.  So went with you +…

Orphan Block Roundup

Once upon a time in perfection-ville, quilters always made the right amount of blocks with perfectly matched points, and in the perfect colors for the perfect quilt. In real life, orphan blocks happen. Maybe your trip around the world, took a detour into wonderland or your “block-of-month” project became a roadblock.  Don’t let these quilt blocks pileup in your workspace (and on your conscience.) Join in with other resourceful quilters and rescue these lonely blocks from their sad fate…
