Meet the November Challenger for Desire to Inspire, Carol Steffensen. 

Carol hails from Minnesota and is a great example of not giving up! She has tried and tried to enter into the challenge, and was almost ready to give up when this month it happened...and we picked her! 

And not that we do this on purpose... but Carol also has a blog called Chickadee Hollow Designs

She received the fabrics last Wednesday and has gotten right to work. This palette is totally new for her, so she is super excited to step outside her usual zone to make something great for this month's challenge.

Hey everybody,I hope you are all having a beautiful day today, the weather is perfect here today. Just wanted to check in and say Hi, I have been a little scarce lately, but things are finally starting to settle down a bit so I can get back to business. My daughter who has cancer is finally showing some improvement, the cancer is still present but the Immunotherapy that she is receiving seems to have stopped the progression. She is unable to do chemo or radiation anymore because it brought her white count down to 3500, but her last appt. it was back up to 4100, so that is better. My grandson who had a 4 wheeler accident a month ago, is able to use a walker now without putting pressure on his broken leg and they have removed the cast from his arm and just has a splint, so he can get around a little bit by himself. My granddaughter graduated in May and we had her reception at our house last weekend, so that was a bit of work for me and my faithful assistants.It was about 20 years since I pulled something like that together, so it was almost like a new experience, but it went well and everything is back in place and I can finally get back to designing. Thanks everybody for the kindness, prayers, support and just for being there for me. It meant so much to know that my community of quilters and stitchers always have your back! You are all the best!❤️
Watch for a newsletter to come out this weekend with whats going on! By the way if you do not receive the newsletter and would like to, please email us at, or or give us a call at 320-354-2456 or sign up on the first page of our website in the appropriate spot, or also our blog, Chickadee Chatter.

New designs added to the Springtime Stitch Along

Springtime Stitch Along Update!

This is a picture of a couple of rows I have sewn together from out Springtime Stitch Along, as you can see there is no real setting for the blocks, they are all different sizes, so because it is a Crazy Quilt, I add strips or a pieced quilt block, to fill in to make the rows come out to the same length. It is totally ad lib and now I will sandwich it and then I plan to hand stitch it and embellish it as I choose to. I plan to use Perks Cotton # 12 to do the hand stitching, and I will use several colors. It doesn't look like much yet but it will! So for those of you asking for a setting, sorry it is totally your call. Make it fun!. You can even add some Vintage embroidery to your quilt if you choose. It's a Crazy Quilt. Oh and this is half of the first two rows, I have the other half folded under it. I am also going to quilt it as I go, I plan on 8 rows of blocks, not sure if I will add borders or not at this point. I will keep you updated with pictures!

Spool Souffle Quilt Along Fat Quarter Shop

We are so excited to be quilting along with the gals at the Fat Quarter Shop way down there in Texas!
 Where everything is bigger you know, and these spools are , but they sure are easy and fun! Here is a picture of my chosen fabrics when I first laid them all out before I first started sewing. One of the things that I do when I choose fabrics for a quilt like this is count the number of blocks and the number of rows, in this case it is 36 blocks so it 6 blocks by 6 blocks.I chose about 40 fabrics so I can eliminate one  or two when I start putting them together if I don't feel they work with the rest of them.
So I picked 6 color ranges that I wanted to work with, 6 reds, 6 golds, 6 blacks, 6 browns, 6 blues, and 6 greens. I also threw a few surprises in, a couple of pinks, a couple of purples. My fabrics are all reproduction fabrics as those are my favorites from some of my favorite designers, such as Judy Rothermel, Primitive Gatherings, Jo Morton, and Kim Diehl. So here they are, stayed tuned, i will keep you posted as I progress. I also chose a cream and tan small floral for my background fabric.

                                           The video gives you a closer look at the fabrics.
