Caramel mug rug

I continue to be amazed by the kindness and friendship I find in the online quilting community. This winter, a friend posted a photo on Instagram of some caramels she was making. I left a comment about sharing with me, and then she messaged me and asked for my address. A few days later, I […]

St. Louis MQG Cares

Another I-actually-finished-this-awhile-ago-but-haven’t-posted-it finish. My local Modern Quilt Guild participated in a charity sewing project at the end of last year and the beginning of this. We made pillow covers and gave them away to people receiving treatment at the Siteman Cancer Center sites here in the St. Louis area. You can read more about the project […]

Mini seat back pocket

  I found this post in my drafts and thought that I might as well share it. When my daughter’s kindergarten teacher learned that I was an avid seamstress, she asked if I would be willing to take on a project for her classroom. I agreed and she purchased the fabric. Sh wanted to have […]

Modern Quilt Guild Riley Blake Challenge

This has been finished for some time, actually (as you might have guessed based on the SNOW on the ground in the photos!), but I’m just now getting around to posting about it. This quilt, which I’m calling “Twisted Triangles” was my entry into the Modern Quilt Guild‘s Riley Blake Challenge. Seriously, I don’t know […]

Sunday Stash Winner

We have a winner! The Random Number Generator  picks #23, which was Sarah at Things I Make. Her post said that it was her first time posting for Sunday Stash. With odds like that, I’m sure she’ll be back. Congratulations, Sarah. I’ve emailed you, so send me your address and I’ll get your fabric in […]

A big thank you and a sad farewell

Several weeks ago, I told you that my dad had cancer and that I wanted to make him a quilt for his birthday. I had less than 6 weeks to have it completely finished, and I asked for your help because I didn’t think that I could complete the project on that timeline by myself. Well, […]

Sunday Stash and Giveaway

Tap, tap, tap … Ahem. Is this on? Anybody out there? Oh, hey, there! It’s been awhile. I’m here to host Sunday Stash, so welcome, if you’ve hopped over from Molli Sparkles. I’m also considering this my “welcome back to blogging after an unintentional hiatus” post. Sewing by Moonlight, the blog, it seems, is a casualty of […]

Minion Pinion

  A friend posted a picture of a minion in her Instagram feed, wondering if anyone had seen a pattern for one. She commented that she thought it would be great to have a minion in her sewing room with her. I thought that if one were going to have a minion in one’s sewing room, […]

Cancer sucks and I need your help

My dad has cancer. It’s not a secret, I just don’t talk about it because it makes me sad and angry and frustrated and a whole host of other emotions that don’t even have names. There aren’t words to describe how unsettled and out of sorts it makes me feel to know my dad has […]

Bill’s Star

My friend Bill wanted a handmade quilt for his bed. I can’t argue with that. If you are lucky enough to know a quilter who will make you a quilt for your bed (or you ARE a quilter), just know that you own a treasure because there are a LOT of hours that go into […]
