If it's Sunday and if you gotta GO and say it, say it with HEART.



Accuquilt has offered up their videos to us, alternating with Missouri Quilt Company every other Sunday.
And being that it is the eve of Valentines Day, and being that we all have indeed HEART,
( some larger than others) and being that this is a day of REST--relax for less than a minute and let them pour their hearts to you and take notes...Heartfelt ones okay? lol

Now go and relax...

  1. Two projects in process that are taking up tons of space in my heart - First is a quilt for my daughter's 1st grade teacher! She's a wonderful hard-working woman and I admire her tons! The second is a stack of quilts to be donated to the Lucille Packard Children's Hospital at Stanford -My husband (yep! My DH had surgery at a children's hosp!) had surgery there in 2007 - and that hospital treats kids from every walk of life, from every corner of the globe... many of them flown in unexpectedly.... My goal is to make and donate 100 quilts by June! I'm proud and excited to continue working on both!

  2. My heart is full with a special project I'm working on. I'm making a quilt for a little boy whose mom was killed in the line of duty in 2009. One of her co-workers sent out a "calling all quilters" email asking for help with a project and it ended up with me. I got a bag of her clothing and I'm making quilt blocks - stars, hearts, pinwheels, kites - happy, colorful blocks of all shapes and sizes. There were sweatshirts, uniform shirts, fleece pullovers and denim - I'm mixing it with bright flannels. There will be a center medallion of 4 pictures of the boy and his mom, and I hope it will bring him comfort.

  7. A heart can never have too much love in it and for years I had the same feelings about My Room, it can never have too much fabric, paper, fiber, paint, stamps, you get the picture...
    So now my heart is filled with helping my Fabric Fulfill Its Destiny! Come join my 2011 blog:

  8. Well, it sure looks like a lot of fun..Now that I have a sewing machine coming my quilting world is opening up.. I'm super excited.. the GO would just be WHOOO HOOOO over the top excitement. Certainly a big mover from the needle and thread I'm currently using... and the speed, well...Bright speed!! cuz Light speed won't even describe the glow you will see coming off of me!

  9. Wow, this is definately NOT one of those gadgets you sew wish that you hadn't bought. I avoid applique because of the "needle turn", that sew defeats me! Today I am putting away my machine, and making sure my fabric is all protected. Yep, gonna have a "finished " laundry room (beside quilt space) in the next few weeks. Renovation starts next week. ( finished means insulation, dry wall, and a floor, and real light switches) Sew- for the next few weeks I am quilting at a friends house. We are making a quilt for a very special lady we have worked with for over 20 years. She is retiring. We are sew going to miss her, but we are sending our love in the form of a quilt.

  10. My heart is involved with making a quilt for Hope Kids, an organization that provides support and activities for children with life threatening illnesses and their families.

    I have a GO and love how it cut out hexagons for my first ever hexagon project. Think about cutting those things out by hand!!

  11. I made two "poochie" bags (http://thehappyzombie.com/pb) to send to my daughters with hearts appliqued on the pockets, then filled them with candy. I figured they'd make nice lunch bags. Love your site!

  12. I'm starting work on a quilt for my retreat, and hearts would sew fit in! That GO would definitely make it easier - thanks for all you do, Madame Samm!!

  14. Our local library has a parenting class for new Mom's. As a gift at the end of the class, each Mom will receive a quilt for their new little one. Currently I am in the process of making one of those quilts. All quilters who are participating will be at graduation, when the quilts are handed out. It's a wonderful project which I am proud to be part of.

    Happy Valentines Day
