I was feeling scrappy last weekend. Literally and figuratively. There are two meanings to scrappy and I qualified for both. “Made up of scraps or of odds and ends; fragmented: disconnected.” “Fond of fighting, arguing, or competing.”   These are the days I’m not fit for human companionship. I put myself in time-out and […]

How I know I’m in good mental shape?  When I’m engaging in the things that I love. This is how I knew I might finally be healing from the effects of Lyme. Around the end of May I started sewing again. Honestly I had not stepped foot in my sewing room since about January. I […]

Some of you may remember my old friend, The Amish Cowgirl Well, I said goodbye to her Saturday. It’s hard to say goodbye when you’ve been friends for so long.   She was my first vintage quilt. I sold her to someone who really wanted and appreciated her and will cherish her in her home. […]

 I call this one “The Story of My Life” quilt. The pattern is an old one called “Trip Around the World”. I bought it at an antique store in Wichita the same day I saw the Surfer Jesus . “Trip Around the World”  is apropos for my life.   Because ….. I’ve been everywhere, man.    […]

 My name is Terah and I have serious addiction …. to vintage quilts. Not all vintage quilts…..  Just the ones that are unfinished. Unusual. That speak to me. That need some TLC. That want to be brought back out into the light. From wherever they were hiding. To fulfill the purpose “She” intended.   A […]

This was originally posted in 2011.  Under the title “Vintage Quilt Blocks.”  I promised you another post when I finished the backing and binding so here it is. (3 years later…..  don’t judge, …. I’ve been busy) I know I’ve said this before. But this may very well be my favorite project to date. In […]

This blog post was originally published in 2012. Which was before the  “Great Escape”  of 2013.  I finished the quilt. I’ve got my mojo back! Quilting for Karma   …..  2014 I had a treasure chest in a Justin Boot Box.  I bought a whole box full of vintage quilt blocks for about $40. This is only […]

Staying with the “Our Lady” theme …..   I hope I’m not doing anything insensitive here.  I’m not Catholic, but I have consulted my Catholic girlfriends, and I have spent lots of time in Mexico. I love the art form of Our Lady of Guadalupe. This is one of the fabric art panels I bought […]

  Our Lady of Guadalupe. En espanol por favor. Nuestra Senora de Guadalupe. I don’t have a Spanish Keyboard to get the proper punctuations. Lo siento. I made a similar pillow earlier this year. A really nice man bought it on my Etsy Shop for his wife. Our Lady now resides in Laguna Niguel, California. […]

  I met “My Muse” in person when I made this quilt. It was a magical experience that I will never forget.   I even blogged about it here.  My Muse Was In The Room. This was my most favorite quilt I ever made at the time. I think it was my second one. I […]
