A Bad Mama Jama

She’s a bad mama jama, just as fine as she can be!

I shared the small “practice” version a few weeks ago, but today I’m sharing my large size Wicked Weaver block and I am totally stoked!

Without further ado…I used more of the “citron” color to make the weaver pop. And look at that “wicked” web!

Here are the 2 blocks together.

I enjoyed piecing the large so much more than that bitty one.

I originally planned to put the WW on the back of my scrappy Halloween Spiderweb quilt, but I immediately fell in love w/the effect of the bold B&W stripe and knew it wouldn’t do to put this baby on the back of anything!

Here’s my scrappy Halloween Spiderweb flimsy.

Looking forward to finishing both of these beauties!

Thanks for visiting.

A New Fondness

Some people, or at the very least my sister, might call this an obsession, but “fondness” is what I’m calling it. 

I’ve a new fondness for hand quilting!

I pulled another UFO (un-finished object) out of my WIP (works in progress) closet.

This is the start of an Arkansas Traveler quilt. 


I struggled to add the borders to these diamonds using a tutorial and decided to use a paper piecing template going forward.  So this block will be a pillow cover. A hand quilted pillow cover.

I started work on it this weekend during a trip to IA to visit my quilter/blogger friend, Greta of Material Detachment.  She cut the diamonds for me not quite 3 years ago.

I made lots of progress and am completely pleased w/how it’s s turning out!


I wasn’t planning on doing this much quilting but all this fabulous texture has changed my mind!


I’ll be adding more quilting to the diamonds using a red thread. 

Not so long ago I labled those who hand quilted as “crazy”. But now I see what all the hype is about! 

I want to hand quilt ALL the things! 

Okay, I’m starting to sound obsessed so I’ll leave it at that. 

Thanks for visiting.

It’s love so undeniable, I can hardly speak

Peace so unexplainable, I can hardly think

Into love, love, love

Long Story Short

It took me 2 days to make this 6″ x 7 ” paperpieced block.

It is called Wicked Weaver by lillyella and comes in 3 sizes; 6″ x 7 “, 10″ x 12″ and, 18″ x 21.5”.

I chose the smallest size to test out this B&W striped fabric for the background, which I plan to use as the background for the large size block I’m making to go on the back of my Halloween Spider Web quilt.

My eyes and hands would’ve appreciated me making the medium size instead.

Alas, it’s done and I think the B&W stripe is totally badass.

Thanks for stopping by!
