This piece is called”Going with the Flow”. It’s a challenge piece for Curated Quilts which selected the color way and a theme of curves. I did all of the quilting with Alfred my New PFAFF Performance ICON. Alfred worked perfectly. The size of the pieces is 15 inches square. #curatedquilts #curatedquiltsmini #improvquilting #modernart #abstract #vtmaker #vtartist #vtarts #pfaffsewing #performanceicon #menwhoquilt #menwhoquilt
The next nine hours en route to Hong Kong are going to be very productive! I’ve got my champagne, my hexies, needle, thread, and floss aka thread cutter. What more do I need?!

Main quilting done on quilt one of two! Now to complete main quilting on quilt two, bind these babies, sashiko a tad and then I’ll be done! #quiltingweekend #menwhoquilt #somethingsdonotquiltout
PJ’s, Hand binding and a golden girls marathon on TV land. Embracing my 70s in my early 30s. #oldmanlife #quilting #handstitchedbinding #notsolazysunday #imadethat #menwhoquilt
That moment when things just feel right. Sunday morning and writing my first quilt pattern. #menwhoquilt #modernquilter #alisonglass #andoverfabrics #greenvillemqg
Still quilting. Still listening to bluegrass. This is meditative, it reminds me of the people I watched on some documentary that scoop rice on a board and brush it off until they achieve a zen state. #quilting #menwhoquilt #bearswhoquilt #craftygay #kingmanplacehistoricdistrict
Tadaah: this is the finished top of my #lumbagoquilt made with the gorgeous @oakshottfabrics Quilting will be done after I finish quilting my current quilting project (the red and white quilt) #menwhoquilt #realmenstitch #innercityquilt #oakshott #quiltersofinstagram
Progress. #menwhoquilt
Blocks done for original pattern. Think I wanna make it a bit bigger with a round or two more before I assemble. #menwhoquilt #logcabinquilt
Time to make new friends, & they needed a good forever home right? My new @babylocksewing Solaris & Acclaim. ✂️ I’ve added a few photos with some highlights but oh, machines that really thread themselves & an embroidery machine that scans a drawing & then stitch it out? ✂️ Giddy like a fresh box of crayons with a sharpener on the back 🖍.
One of my coworkers made needle books for everyone on our team for Christmas, and she made mine special with @carolynfriedlander fabrics (because fave, obviously), and it might have made me cry. I truly love my coworkers. #quilting #menwhoquilt #overlyemotional #ownyourfeelings #lovemyjob
Went to a HUMONGOUS #quilt shop today and spent far longer than I probably should have looking around. Picked up a few items, including this pattern by @huntersds . Not sure when I'll actually start it, but it looks like it will be fun to do #mansewing #menwhosew #menwhoquilt
So, I picked up “Alfred” which is PFAFF Performance ICON. Which I purchased at Quilter’s Corner at Middlebury SEW-N-SAC. I’m with the owner of the store @carlaberno If you’re in Middlebury Vermont area it worth a visit. They are getting ready to move to a Larger Storefront (opening January 2nd) so they have some nice discounts before they pack everything up. The used machines are 25% off, it was hard not buying another PFAFF QE 4.0. #pfaffsewing #pfaffsewingmachine #performanceicon #pfaffusa #pfaffaustralia #menwhosew #menwhoquilt #quiltersofinstagram #quiltersselect #creativegrids
Back in the saddle! Class sample. #quiltersofinstagram #menwhoquilt #tidewaterstudio
Quite the colourful year! Look out for a lot more triangles and inspirational improv in 2019! Thank you all for your love and support over the last 12 months. #improv #improvquilting #inspiringimprov #2018bestnine #menwhoquilt #modernmalequilters
My last quilt to complete before Christmas is done! With thanks to @quintequilter . It’s made for a young man who lives his life in a wheel chair. He’s also the most positive and upbeat man I have ever met. I love every moment that I spend with him! Front fabric is from @carolynkonigdesigns ! I love this woman. We are as different in our styles as night and day, and yet ... when we met ... there was just this connection! I TOTALLY love the way this top turned out. There is no pattern it is just based on cutting fabric based on 3”, 6”, 9”, etc and then piecing them on a design wall. I also TOTALLY love this fabric! Thank you Carolyn! The back is an Australian Aboriginal print. #iloveaustralia #carolynkonigdesigns #menwhosew #menwhoquilt #lifeinawheelchair #merrychristmas #handmadegifts #itsasecret #lifeisgood #imsoblessed
Here’s My best/top nine for 2018. I thinks it’s a great selection of my work. #bestnine #topnine #topnine2018 #menwhosew #menwhoquilt #quiltersofinstagram #artquilts #abstractart
Finally getting the binding on this quilt. I don’t mind the hand sewing...but king-size takes me forever! #menwhoquilt #binding
Check out this beautiful bundle of fat quarters hand-selected by the amazingly talented @lizzie2935 ! Trying to drum up some creative ideas for pillow covers with them. Hopefully I’ll make it in time for Christmas! . . . . . . . . . . #wadequilts #modernquilt #menwhosew #menwhoquilt #chicagoquilters #pillow #throwpillow #quiltedpillow #fatquarter #fatquarterbundle
Working on Curved Log Cabin from my class at Houston Quilt Festival. Loving the Christmas fabric. Now to make more of Block B. #menwhoquilt #logcabinquilt
So, the binding may not be perfect, but I did the best that I could. With that being said, the Swirling Branches Tree Skirt is complete! Pattern is by RaNae Merrill @ranaequilts (you really need to check out her work) #red #green #gold #cream #fabric #mansewing #menwhosew #menwhoquilt #Christmas
These 6” blocks made their way around the last round (for me at least) on the #ngaqb2 quilt for @crimsontavid today !! As soon as I get a decent picture of the whole quilt I’ll post it! Now I’ll just wait for mine to come back from @quiltsfromtheattic - woohoo! Feels good to have worked on all 7 of the Quilts in that #roundrobin !! • • #modernquilt #quilting #menwhoquilt #modernmalequilters #improvquilting #mandalaquilt #thatsawesome #blueandorange
Named this one "Mad For Plaid" it was a good learning experience. #menwhoquilt
Next up on “A few of my favorite things”, a curated bookshelf of treasured reading. ✂️ If you’re not familiar with my love of @quiltfolk , troll back on my feed & catch up! Outstanding photography & writing about quilters. ✂️ Also Zoom in to see just a few amazing books I’m thrilled to own from groundbreaking pioneers. ✂️ We may learn from doing, but most importantly we learn & grow from those who pave the way before us. ✂️ If you have a quilt book you treasure, won’t you let me know about it in the comments, I’d love to know!
I like that there is one quilt on there from the sketch to the finished product.
The #quilting of the tree skirt has begun. I'm only going to stitch in the ditch, as my Singer is relatively basic. #red #green #gold #fabric #mansewing #menwhosew #menwhoquilt
My good friends @quiltnow sent over this giant box of #issue55 that I am featured in. I would love to send a few copies to my friends on ig and see what fabrics you would use to make my #orbiequilt . If you haven’t had a chance to get your hands on a copy of this great magazine, here is your chance. All you need to do is: 1. Follow me here on IG (if you already do, thank you! Just tell me you have already) . 2. Follow @quiltnow (I will check) . 3. Leave a comment for a second chance and tell me what fabric you would use in your very own #orbiequilt (which is in this issue and on the cover of my new book, #modernquilting . . . I’ll randomly pick some winners on Monday the 17th of December. . #quiltersofinstagram #giveaway #giveaways #menwhoquilt #quilting #makersgonnamake #quilts
Improv quilt. Mix of hand-tied and hand-stitched. Super cozy, vintage, modern vibes.
Two rows sewn together! #menwhoquilt #quilting
Oh my God! Oh my God! Oh my God! The top of the Swirling Branches tree skirt is complete! 🎉🎉 I'm am beyond pleased with this. There's no such thing as imperfections. It's character. Still have to piece together the back, baste it, and then I can start quilting. I hope my Singer Tradition 2277 is up to the task Pattern is by RaNae Merrill @ranaequilts #red #green #gold #cream #fabric #mansewing #menwhosew #menwhoquilt #Christmas
Christmas 🎄 TableTopper is complete and could not be cuter. The sashing was a breeze with the @weftyneedle #Sasher (scroll to see it in action). @fatquartershop delivered a fun project in their #Jollybox for 2018 with the #cookiecutterquiltblock . #menwhoquilt #menwhosew #quiltersofinstagram #quiltersoftheworld #quiltersofpdx #sewstagram #sewistsoftheworld #sewistsofinstagram #quiltstagram #sewistsofpdx #christmasquilting #christmassewing #christmas2018 🎄
Emergency Christmas quilting is a good excuse for not doing the dishes, right? Also, just an FYI, Christmas presents aren’t going to be ‘late’ this year, I’m just ‘extending the holiday season’.... 😐😩 #menwhoquilt #quilting #holidaystress #idothiseveryyear
#improv triangles are fast becoming my addiction! This one is gonna be BIG, and use more colours that I’ve attempted before. 🧵 Whenever I teach a class, workshop or give a talk, this technique is always on the agenda . It’s great for those new to improv and is a quick and easy way to change a traditional quilting mindset. If you can’t make any of my classes, look out for traingles in my forthcoming book from @luckyspool , #inspiringimprov . #menwhoquilt #modernmalequilters #improvquilting #improvquilt #aurifilartisan
Partial pattern and fabric pull for #myfavthingsquiltswap . Hope ya like them. #menwhoquilt
I now have a pound of scraps. After all the ones I've seen on here, I want to make some crumb blocks with them. I'm thinking about making some mug rugs. #red #green #gold #cream #fabric #mansewing #menwhosew #menwhoquilt
Yay! I finally have all the blocks made for the Swirling Branches Tree Skirt made! Now to start piecing them together. Oooo.... So excited! Pattern is by RaNae Merrill @ranaequilts #red #green #gold #cream #fabric #mansewing #menwhosew #menwhoquilt #Christmas #preview

Loving these #western themed #blueandbrown print #quilt fabric from @andoverfabrics #❤️ #🤠 #quiltingcowboy #menwhoquilt
Quilting studio getting into shape. I kicked myself out of the master bedroom to make room. 😎 #menwhoquilt
Next on the parade of Christmas quilts. Getting deeper into the holiday spirit! #menwhosew #menwhoquilt #quilting #quilts #quiltsofinstagram #christmas #christmasquilts #holidayart
This one also still needs binding. It is reversible. I love that my nine year old grandson has such a great colour sense. He picked the combinations. #pokemon #twoweekstogo #wishthesewerebetterpictures #menwhosew #menwhoquilt #gaygrandpa #lovemylife #makesmehappy #onemoretogo
This past June my cousin, who was battling breast cancer, commissioned me to make 6 quilts for her family for Christmas. Sadly she passed away the end of June. She had planned to pass them out during their family Christmas. That job will now fall to her husband. Today I finished this labor of love and the quilt are now on their trip to Illinois. Besides my day job, this is all I have been doing for the last five plus months. Here are 5 of the six quilts and the label that goes with them. Towards the end, when she was too weak to write, she was able to convey what the quilt labels should say. The quilt labels are her words. #remembrancequilt #quilts #quilting #menwhoquilt #montanaquilter #breastcancerawareness #breastcancersucks #alternateendingquilt
Binding time! #menwhoquilt
Was BFFs this weekend with the longarm at @gather_here. Swipe for the result! Zoom and enhance for lots and lots of circles. Quilt will be for my nephew. #cambridgemodernquiltguild #berninaq24 #menwhoquilt #quiltblockcookbook
One of the good things about my frequent work trips is that I keep picking up these airline pouches. This one from #virginaustralia is perfect for hexies on the go. I was in Perth yesterday, Canberra today, Hong Kong next week. I think I could have a designated pouch for each city! ✨ #galonthego #guyonthego #epp #rainbowepp #sewtherainbow #englishpaperpiecing #acidrockquilt #hexies #threadbasting #threadbasted #makemodern #menwhoquilt #aussiequilters #menwhosew #mollisparkles
Star Wars quilt 2.0 is backed & basted! Looking like Wednesday will be a quilting marathon day.... also, as I was finishing basting, Africa by Toto came on. (That’s a sign right @jennmcmillan 😂) #menwhoquilt #quilting #quiltsforfamily #remaking #favoritesong #dontjudgeme
Still needs binding, but I’m sure that she’ll like it! I love that I have a granddaughter who prefers the images in her head after reading the books over the images from the movie! That did make finding fabric more difficult, though! #stilltwoweekstogo #harrypotter #iloveasymmetry #christmasquilt #menwhoquilt #menwhosew #gaygrandpa #love
Woo hoo! This is the last of the foundation pieced blocks I have to make for the tree skirt. It's been quite the learning process for me since this was my first time doing foundation piecing. But I've been finding little tricks to make things easier. Pattern is by RaNae Merrill @ranaequilts #red #green #gold #cream #fabric #mansewing #menwhosew #menwhoquilt
I finished another set of blocks! #red #green #cream #fabric #mansewing #menwhosew #menwhoquilt
All four sides are straight again, and I’ve just done a first pressing with my iron. I will add a small red border to finish it off. Did my measurements for the borders, so this week I can cut them and start sewing. #realmenstitch #menwhoquilt #innercityquilt #lumbagoquilt #oakshott #quiltersofinstagram
A reimagined double decker #EnglishPaperPieced version of @sewsweetness ‘s #crimsonandclovertraincase . My version was reworked for #EPP storage. It has two main compartments, six pockets, two handles, 60 buttons and three snaps. I mean who doesn’t want an Epp’ed epp case really? #tulapinkdelaluna #traincase #menwhosew #sewistsofinstagram #sewistsoftheworld #sewistsofpdx #menwhoquilt #quiltersofinstagram #quiltersoftheworld #quiltersofpdx #bagmakersofinstagram #bagmakersoftheworld #bagmakersofpdx #makersmovement #craftgoddess @tulapink
This is the #Trinketquilt pattern and fabrics by @missmelodymiller for #cottonandsteel , it is a re-covering of the very first quilt I made, the original was a tie quilt that fell apart about 15 years after it was made, I loved it so much 20 years later in 2016 I started this recovering process. It now weighs 800 tons (as much as a white dwarf star I am certain) and was just finished last month. Two years in the making, it will spend the remainder of its days as an adorable sofa covering. Those prints are just adorable and a testimony to the talents and love #missmelodymiller puts into her work. I am very excited to see what @rubystarsociety has in store for us. The Force is with you Melody and Team!!👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻😘👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻. #menwhoquilt #quiltsofinstagram #quiltersofinstagram #quiltersoftheworld #quiltersofpdx #quiltersofrubystar #quiltersofMelodyMiller #creativewomansleaguepodcast #makersmovement #craftgoddess
I decided my new shirt needed some curved welt pockets (which I've never done). I love Frixion pens cuz they write like a ballpoint but disappear with the heat of an iron. #menwhosew #memademenswear #memadeeveryday #menwhoquilt #menwhoknit #selfdrafted #frixionpen @frixionpilotpen
There they are! The assortment of threads I was going to use to finish the Rubbernecker quilt but couldn’t find once I got to PA. #menwhoquilt #quiltersofinstagram #homeatlast #twostudios #tidewaterstudio
