Earth Day 2015


Happy Earth Day!


 Today I had breakfast with my friend Pat at the Corner Cafe.  I just love waking meeting up with friends.


  This was me today. The front and back yard.


Found this Starling in my back yard today.  She did pick a strange place, but who I am to judge.


Late lunch / early dinner with Thomas.

 Yummy fabrics from Pink Castle Fabrics
 They are Bonnie and Camille Basics Stash Box!
I can see a quilt or two coming from these. 

What did you do on Earth day?

Until next time,

I'm Baaaacccckkkk

Wow, the last blog post was on January 11, 2014.  In the coming weeks, I will share with you why I have been away.

Have you seen that I have been posting to Pinterest?  Lots of neat stuff.  A few of my board are:


  • Chip off the Old Block (Quilt Blocks)
  • Pillow Talk (Quilted Pillow Tops)
  • Off the Wall (Table Runners)
  • Quilts, Quilts, Quilts.
  • And many more.


I have posted a nice article from Wall Street Journal about Sewing on Qubee Quilts Facebook page. Check it out.

Just to show that men really do sew, I leave you with the following images.



Until next time,

Plotting a return

We here at Qubee Quilts have been away for too long.  Charlie and I (Thomas), are planning on a return to the blogosphere.  Charlie will continue to show off his designs and whatever is rattling around that pretty little head of his.  I will be sharing some of my work with my longarm machine, as well as trying to learn new ways to quilt.

I think that sharing our work and new ideas online will help us both be a little more creative than we have been lately, and maybe inspire others to be more creative too!

More soon,


Thomas

Teen Books & Quilting

I saw a book list that was entitled 25 book you might wish to steal from your teen and I thought I would check a few of them out because I have a fascination with young adult fiction.   
Dead End in Norvelt
By Jack Gantos


Jack thinks his summer is over until his mother volunteers him to help a neighbor. He discovers a mystery behind his unusual assignment.
Okay for Now
By Gary D. Schmidt 
Doug Swieteck must overcome a deadbeat father, an older brother who steals from him, a brother returning from the Vietnam War and being the new kid in boring Marysville, New York.


A Long Way from Chicago
By Richard Peck


A shotgun-toting, cherry-bomb-throwing grandma, a corpse that doesn’t seem to want to stay in its coffin, bandits, ghosts and other exciting adventures await when two city kids spend summers away from home.

Half BrotherBy Kenneth Oppel 
When Ben’s dad is doing research into animals and language, a chimp named Zan comes to live with the family. What happens when research work is over and medical testing is about to begin?

Here is a place mat that I made using leftover fabric from Saltwater, along with some linen fabric.  Yes, these circles did take hours to do.  


I have a thing for dots.  All kinds of dots. I love the mix of colors that these have.  I'm currently working on a new quilt that will live on our couch and will keep us warm while we are watching T.V.

Until next time,
