Learning how to hand quilt may seem daunting at first, but Nancy Chong makes it easy. Her easy-to-follow instructions are designed for both left handed and right handed quilters. Anyone can learn.

This week I have been having fun with more stitching. Stitching is my favorite part of course, although lately you'd be thinking that cutting up was seeing as I've been doing a lot of that in challenges. It's fun and it takes you unexpected places which just adds to the challenge.... well I'm getting a little off track here so let's take a look at what I did this week for my Stitch Along.

Journal Quilts gallery

All quilts tell a story especially art quilts and journal quilts, which are usually a series of small quilts that reveal a longer tale. Often one journal quilt leads onto the next and it is amazing how their tale unravels. Lily Kerns class Journal Quilts starts this weekend and she shared with us, some journal quilts made from a few of her students who have taken this workshop. In this course, you make three small journal quilts to tell your story.

When I was a little girl I got a diary for Christmas. It was bound in blue and had a tiny key to keep it safe. I wrote faithfully for a few months, then abandoned it. Went to school. Rained today. Helped weed garden. It all got pretty boring after a while.

My March Stitch Along week 3

This weekend I needed to make a final decision on whether to use one or two Nemos on my blocks. I also needed to decide some sort of vertical line, or lines perpendicular to the strips as per this week's rules.

I've had a lot of response from my last stitch along post especially when I posted it on Facebook. Many mentioned "one fish, two fish" from the Dr Suess book and I discovered it was actually Dr Suess month this month, how cool is that? So as a result, I'll probably make more than one block with varying amounts of Nemos.

Fancy Stitches - make use of them!

Two of my favorite sewing/quilting projects to stitch come together in Embroidery on Patchwork. I have been in love with Crazy Patch embroideries since I was very young. It was all stitched by hand then. Now we have all these wonderful machines that stitch hundreds of beautiful line stitching as well as the machines that have an embroidery module. It opens a whole new way to do fancy stitching.
