Just in Time for Christmas!

Today, my Christmas arrived!  :)  What could be better than CHEVRON STRIPES in multiple colors, but especially in GRAY!!!!!!

Saturday, December 10, 2011


Just like everyone one in this creative world, I am addicted to Pinterest.  My latest fab find, thanks to some wonderful customers LeeAnn, Diana and Janice, are little girl tutus made using crocheted headbands as the waste band instead of plain elastic!  PURE GENIUS!  Just take a look....

Simply do a search on Pinterest for tutus and you will find pages of inspiration!  I hadn't seen one made using scraps of fabric before this one, and it is by far my favorite!!  I can't wait to give it a try :)

Oh, and of course you can find the crocheted headbands at Pine Needles for only $0.99 each, and we have them in a dozen different colors.

Valentines Already?!?

Fabric arriving for a holiday that is months away is the craziest part of having a quilting store!  And right now is no exception!   We are already receiving our Valentine fabrics, and haven't even had time to finish our Christmas projects!  I know I am preaching to the choir :) 

But we all know that if we don't buy the fabric when it comes out, we won't find it when the holiday is near and we have finally decided exactly what we plan to do with it.  So in the spirit of Valentines, I want to make sure everyone has seen Sandy's latest design in her 'Wonky Series.'  It is called Wonky Love and it is made using a lot of the fabric line Ruby from Moda.  You can't get any better than a FABULOUS DESIGN combined with A FABULOUS FABRIC LINE!  Oh wait, yes you canIt gets better when you find out the FABULOUS DESIGN is being taught by the designer at a FABULOUS RETREAT (just click to find out all the details)!!!!

The Most Clever Window Decals

Have any of you seen these window decals....?

I L-O-V-E love them!  They are 'sew' fun :)    Just apply them to the back window of your car to let the world know you are a serious quilter and/or stitcher.  What a great stocking stuffer idea, just send your Santa in to pick one up today!  And make sure he brings your 12 Days of Christmas punch card because he could use either #1 or #12! 

Happy Quilting and Happy Stitching!

Tea Towel Tutorial

Hi Gals!  I am back again with a fun and FASTULOUS (fast/fabulous) tutorial.  I am always in search for a fun neighbor gift and this fits that to a Tea.  Or maybe you just need a fashionable towel for yourself to wipe your holiday grimies on.  Hope you enjoy!

Supplies List:
  • 1 tea towel (I am using a Indo teal towel which measures 20 1/2" x 28")
  • 5 - 5" red squares
  • 1 - 1 1/2" x 22" red
  • 5 - green buttons (I am using a variety of fabulous Riley Blake buttons)

First, I must say that I did not think up this idea, rather I saw it on Pinterest (ADDICTED, I'm just sayin') which took me to this link and then I tweaked it a bit.  I had some left over 5" charm squares and so I changed up the measurements to use them. 

Sew here, is how it goes...
  • For each 5" square fold in half diagonally and press.  Fold in half again and press to create a prairie point.
  •  Lay five prairie points across tea towel with the raw edges being approximately 4" from the bottom. Pin in place.

  • Prepare 1 1/2" x 22" strip by folding each end in and pressing so that the finished length measures the width of your towel.  Press under each long edge 1/2".
  • Pin over prairie points.

  • Sew in place.
  • Sew a button at the tip of each point.

That's have a fastulous home-made gift!

The Tale of Three Trees Tutorial

I just posted the following tutorial on my Pine Mountain blog and wanted to be sure to share it with all my Pine Needles friends.   Read on and enjoy!

Once upon a mountain top, three little trees stood and dreamed of what they wanted to become when they grew up. The first little tree looked up at the stars and said......

That is the start of One of my favorite books for Christmas, or really it is such a beautiful folktale for for any time. If you have not read this book - please do, it will inspire and uplift you.

And today, in honor of one of my favorite books I hope you enjoy my gift to you, the paper piece pattern 'Three Trees"

I love the odd angles of the trees, and the folk art affect of the quilting.
  • Download and print pattern
  • Paper piece project using pattern provided, white background, and three different green fabrics. (See tutorial below if you are unfamiliar with paper piecing)

  • Sandwich paper pieced top, batting and background fabric.
  • Draw lines for tree trunks.

  • Chain stitch trunks using 2 ply brown floss.

  • Using 2 ply red floss quilt a running stitch through all layers along each seam as illustrated.

  • Frame, make an ornament, mug rug, or small pillow.

If you are not familiar with paper pieceing - here is a fabulous tutorial found on Youtube.

Post a comment and I will draw a random number to receive a free frame as shown in my model. Enjoy!

Wonky Winter is here!

I am so excited to show you my newest quilt
"Wonky Winter". 

I have enjoyed every process in my Wonky series. A bit of piecing, wonky style of course, a bit of applique, just the right amount of embroidery and hello, hexagons - Love 'em.  For this design I wanted a quilt that I could enjoy at Christmas but also thru the remaining cold winter nights. 

This is the companion to my two quilts Wonky Wildflowers and Wonky Fall Foliage.

Coming in January is the final quit in this series.

Wonky Love

Here is a little teaser!

I hope you enjoy!
