Just Let the Fabric Win

Posted by Rona the Ribbiter Quilts on

I am a bit of a control freak. Before beginning my quilts I already have the design complete in my head. The colors, the layout, the overall look is done. All that’s left is for me to bring it to life. So, taking Carol’s workshop on Parisian curves and Improv Quilting was a little bit of a challenge. But, hey, isn’t that why we take classes? To break out of our boxes and try something new!

Posted by Rona Herman on

When asked to participate in the Masterpiece Quilting's Christmas Collection Blog Hop I just knew I wanted to make this adorable Jingle Bells Wall Hanging. Although, me being me, I did have to give it a little bit of twist.

What to Make with Christmas Fabric Scraps

Posted by Rona Herman on

The idea that sparked my Christmas in July week was the Jingle Bells Wall Hanging I signed up to make as part of the Masterpiece Quilting's Christmas Pattern Book Blog Hop. As I am a slightly paranoid person, I tend to over buy on fabric… slightly. So, after making the Jingle Bells wall-hanging I had plenty of left overs, so I decided to make a couple fun matching No Sew ‘Quilted’ Christmas Ornaments.

See What’s Hoppin’ on our Christmas Week at the Pond!

Posted by Rona Herman on

I can’t think of a much better way to kick off our Christmas in July week than with an amazing Quilting Sit and Sew with the wonderful ladies of our very own Charlotte Quilters Guild! Let me tell you, with all the planning, getting sick, re-planning, packing and moving, I definitely deserved a day of quilting and laughter with my tribe.

Here I Come World, Ready or Not!

Posted by Rona Herman on

Tomorrow is my first Guild Lecture. I get to stand in front of a room full of strangers and talk about my love and passion for Quilting. I get to share with them my strategies on breaking down even the biggest quilting projects to manageable sizes for a more efficient use of our limited time. I even get to share some of my own quilts that I’ve poured my time, love and attention into creating. All of this that I get to do tomorrow… scares the ever-living crap out of me.
