Gladiolus is the birth flower for August - no wonder it is a favorite of mine. Flower colors may be green, white, mauve, yellow, red, orange, purple or pink, with stripes or blotches of another color.

Today I felt like playing with jigsaws a little so I turned one of my favorite quilts into one. How fast can you make this quilt?

At the beginning of this year I introduced everyone to Zoo Friends - one of the cutest baby quilt classes ever which is designed and taught by Jennifer Houlden. It is a patchwork and simple animal applique.

I was looking for a different sort of block to make in the EQ library. I was considering mosaic blocks and as I was looking at a selection my eye kept on being drawn back to Mosaic Block Number 15.

New Online Classes

Today I loaded in three new classes at the Academy of Quilting and updated the Academy Calendar. Two of the classes have a special start price for a limited time so it pays to register early. If you purchase the special rate, you can always request a later date if it doesn't quite suit.

Friday Flower Clematis

Posted by Ruth on 3 May 2013 | 0 Comments

Tags: ,

For the first flower of May I have a Clematis. The clematis is a climbing plant and their display is elegant. Most varieties produce a single flower however some have a double flower. The single flower can range from as small as 1" and up to 10". I haven't seen one that big but I'm sure it would be real pretty. I have seen quite a few different varieties though. The flowers are usually pastel shades of pink and purple or white but sometimes they can be brighter colors too.

Time Square quilt

Last weekend I was helping a friend clean out her sewing room. In amongst her quilts was a shop sample she had made of Time Square which still needed to have binding on it. She had the binding fabric with the quilt so I said I would do it for her since she was going to give it to me anyway. That was one less job she had to do... and one more for me lol.
