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 […]

I made this Paint Horse Pillow pillow last winter and blogged about it.  One of the things I adore about blogging is the people I have met. The friends I’ve made. My friend Suzanne of Fairchild Farmgirl  is an artist, mom to 8, wife to Big D, and surrogate mother to untold number of cattle, ducks, […]

I have a treasure chest in a Justin Boot Box. Last year I bought a whole box full of vintage quilt blocks for about $40. This is only about 1/10th of what’s in there. I would never tackle a project like these blocks even with modern fabrics.  It’s much too tedious for me. But there […]
