Hi All! My Rainy Days quilt tutorial is being featured on Sew We Quilt @ Stash Manicure today, August 15th. Click the link below to check it out, and for a chance to win TWO jelly rolls! Sweet deal!
On a different note, I’m off to a slow start on my latest bakeshop tutorial, but at least I’ve started! I wanted to share some photos of my little helpers keeping me company while i quilt. Putting together a tut requires a lot of photos…though Bodie and Paige started encroaching on my photos, they “started” out as perfect little models…
Their way of of telling me they were ready for a walk. 😉 Anyway, I hope to wrap this tutorial up in the next week or so, so stay tuned. Thanks for stopping by!
I have just started quilting. Thank you for all the great info! And the dog pics. My quilts all have dog hair on them. And sometimes bits of Cheetos.
Enjoyed the tutorial. I think that is one a newby Wantobe could easily do.

Cute dogs.. Hope you're feeling okay today.
ohh love the tutorial, and love the giveaway, Im a quilter whos addicted to hexis 🙂
This made me smile…we had a fiest when I was growing up who was always getting into trouble. 🙂
I am over from madame Samm's! Great post over there this morning!
Hi Jera…I just became a follower of yours. Found you on Stash Manicure where you left a wonderful tut on making an easy quilt! Congrats on your new addition to your family and thanks for sharing pics of your two dogs. They are cute!
Like other commenters before me, I discovered you over at Stash Manicure. Many would consider me a seasoned quilter, but I don't feel I am. I made my first quilt when my granddaughter was born 6 years ago, and since that time. I haven't made many quilts since then…maybe six?? So each time I go to make a new quilt, I feel like I'm starting all over, and I have to pull out the books and cruise the web trying to find out how to do the basics. Love your tutorial and hope to make one – it really DOES look easy. Thanks so much for sharing
I am a wantobe from Sew We Quilt! Thanks for such a great post over there! I think I can make that quilt! I am going to give it a try! I will have to find just the right fabric! Thank you so much for such a great post!
I'm also a wantobe from sew we quilt! Thank you sooo much for your post! I am really excited to follow you! You make everything sound so easy and will definitely be making this quilt!
Hello Jera! Congratulations to you, your husband, Bodie and Paige on your "bun in the oven"!
I'm delighted to find you and can't wait to read more of your blog.
I am a new follower and added you to my Google home page as well so I won't miss a post.
Enjoy the gorgeous PNW for me!
All the best,
Christina in Cleveland / Brenis
I'm a new follower thanks to the Wantobe Quilter Campaign. Thanks for providing a simple quilt for those of us that are just getting started! Thanks Brenda C
Love your blog and pics
Great tutorial over on Stash Manicure! Can't wait to see your new Moda bakeshop project! Love the dog rolling around in your work!
I'm a Wantobe Quilter and read your post. That is exactly what I am looking for as a first quilt pattern.You make it look sew easy.
Thanks for the post.
Hi, Jera –
I'm a Wantobe Quilter, too! Saw your post today and I love your quilt!! Love the fabric, too!
I'm following you!
Hugs ~~ Suz
hahaha!! Just like the kids!! Looking forward to seeing more of the turorial!
Too funny – my Chow does the same and it's hard to do anything on the floor – her territory. And just think – in about a year you'll have another one on the floor rolling around with the older 'siblings'.
I'm happy that you were able to attract many new followers from your appearance at Stash Manicure. Paige may be the one who executed the move, but I am convinced that Brody is the mastermind. There is something very mischeivous about the look in his eyes.
Love your tutes and patterns! Thanks for all your hard work! I have learned so much from you. I have never had a jelly roll so that would be a sweet treat for sure!
Funny, funny! It reminds me of when I was in college an my cat would sit directly on the textbook that I was trying to study.
cute pics! my cats like to "help" the same way – by reorganizing my blocks!
I too am here from Sew We Quilt today Jera … happily a new follower of yours … your puppies are adorable and yes, it must have been walk time 🙂 THank you so much for sharing! Best wishes and happy hugs! Wendy
A new follower here from Sew We Quilt, and I love your tutorial. It looks like something I could do fairly quickly and easily. I am still learning all I can about quilting and slowing getting in the groove. I am still a Wantobe Quilter! The hardest part of your tutorial would be choosing the fabrics for the focus. LOL Congratulations on the bun in the oven. I know you are excited!
Hi Jera, I just read your tut at stash, great info! I think I can do this with your easy instructions. I am now following you! Have a great day. Christel Hutson
I have been following you for a while now. Love looking at your handiwork. I am a wantobe from Grandmama's Stories. Thanks for making things look easy.
What a treat — quilts AND corgis! I, too, have two corgis (Duncan is the Party Corgi and Oliver is the Worry Corgi). So pleased to find your blog from Wantobe quilters — I'm one of the "quilters" looking in on the Wantobes.
Thanks for the tutorial; looks like one a beginner like myself could do. Thanks for sharing the pictures of your helpers; it was my smile for the morning.
I love the picture of your dog messing up your patchwork. I used to have a cat who did that. At the time, I was sewing a lot and I would put the fabric out and then the tissue paper patterns and she would come racing in as soon as she heard that rustle. Even though she messed it all up, I thought it was really funny. Saw you over at Stash manicure and liked the pattern you posted there.
Great tutorial! Thanks for sharing. I am a new friend, Madame Samm sent me!
I am a new follower. Thanks for the tutorial
1. Corgis are the best!
2. Your pieces are beautiful!
3. The tutorial on Sew We Quilt is so appealing. Thanks for sharing.
Not a new follower, I am an experienced quilter. I just had to say that I loved your tutorial and pattern on Stash. Isn't it funny how our furry friends love fabric, and helping.
I'm a new follower thanks to your post at Madame Samm's. Thanks for the simple ideas..and the great tutorial. And for being a part of the Wantobe Quilter experience!
Iam a wantobe quilter….and thank you for the turtorial I want to make one. agnes pat.

I am a follower & really enjoy your blog:) I also have two helpers when I quilt! Congratulations on your baby bump!
Hi Jera–I came here from Stash Manicure and decided to stay, and follow, when I saw the picture of Paige rolling on your blocks. I have so many pictures of our dogs or cats lounging on my quilts-in-progress. After the quilt is finished, that makes it especially dear, at least in our house.

Hi Jera — I am a new follower here. Thanks for a simple pattern that is easy to try for a wantobe like me.
I came to visit from Sew We Quilt. I also live in the Seattle area and have one dog that provides enough hair to stuff a pillow each week. (I really don't use her hair for that) I enjoyed my visit to your blog.
Visting from Stash Manicure. Thanks for the great tutorial you posted today! I'm a new follower! 🙂
I'm here from Stash Manicure and now a new follower. Love your tutorial and will definitely have to give it a try.
i'm also here from SM and i'll be another new follower..i love sewing quilting and (OMG)love fabric. thanks for the tutorial! :>) ps great dogs
love the doggies pics! Thanks for the tutorial 🙂
Coming over from Stash manicure. I wanted to thank you for the tutorial and the giveaway over there. Love your blog. (I am a new follower, too)
i saw your tutorial on sew we quilt, thanks for sharing it.
Coming from Stash Manicure, love your pattern. It's one I've made several times but your way of cutting the white strips is so much easier. Will def try it next time. I love this quilt. I'm newly following and hopefully winning the prize! 🙂
FBook sent me to Stash, then here..great tutorial. Such a crisp clean quilt. I am a jellyroll lover and user. Thanks
Thanks for the tut:)
Love your quilt and tute on SM! Lol, are dog hairs as difficult to remove from quilting fabric as cat hairs? Farm cats also can't be taught to wipe their dirty little paws when they come inside and decide your fabrics are the ideal place for a snooze!
I'm a new Follower! And already follow Stash Manicure.
So excited about the Drawing!! Thanks for chance to win!!! 🙂
Hi Jeri Your post on stashManicure brought me here, and I'm glad it did! I'm following you now, and love all your tutorials, especially today's. No corgis here, just dobermans (x2) who think seeing my sewing machine means I want them to cuddle on my lap! (no, not MINPINs, full size, big galloot dobermans who refuse to believe they aren't lap dogs!)
Greetings: I very much enjoyed the sample quilt you posted on the blog. Looks like it would be a great starter quilt. I am a wantobe quilter just trying to get started. Thanks for sharing.

Hi there, I'm a new follower from the Wantobe Quilter campaign! I don't even know what a jelly roll is yet, geez. Told you – wannabe!
Kathy from It's Only Natural sent me over!
Jera, I loved your quilt tutorial on SEW WE Quilt. It was so creatively simple and yet wonderful. I, too, loved your color choices. It's on my list of quilts-to-make. Thanks you.
I am a Wantobe from sew we quilt. I decided a few weeks ago to learn how to quilt. I am having so much fun learning and look forward to making your "Singing in the Rain" quilt for one of my daughters. Thanks for sharing!
I don't know much about quilting, but I love your tutorials. Hopefully I will get better.
Thank you for the tutorial that Stash Manicure sent me. I'm started last year learning to quilt. Congrats on the impending arrival. There's nothing like it!
Sooo cute! I love your furbabies! corgi's are they cutest!
Oh. my. goodness!!! I ADORE your Corgis!!! Yes, I love quilts too LOL but I have a love affair going with Corgis—and no, I don't have any :/ but I have wienie dogs that I love with a passion. 😀
