About Us

Peggi & Cindi met online through SewForum.com when Cindi was looking for quarters she was collecting. They became fast friends, and after a year of constantly e-mailing projects back and forth, decided to start a blog together. They met for the first time when they attended the 2010 American Quilter’s Society Quilt show in Paducah. It was there they realized they were meant to quilt together.

Peggi lives in Washington state and is a stay-at-home mom to two active boys and a techie husband (who we couldn’t do without!). She is a traditional quilter and loves the challenge of creating something from hundreds of pieces. She also enjoys making miniature quilts, which Cindi is constantly trying to convince her to enter in shows.

Cindi and her husband moved back home to Ohio from Michigan, where she lived for nearly 20 years, and is so glad to be back in the Buckeye State! Out of retirement for the THIRD time, she is a dental office manager. Cindi has always been more of a modern quilter, but her tables are turning through her friendship with Peggi and has branched out to include more traditional quilting and appliqué.

They look forward to sharing their creations with the blogging world and hope readers enjoy their ups and downs with them!

  3. Hi, I just love your quilts, they are beautiful. I’ve seen many in progress but not finished. Do you ever post the finished quilt pictures?
    Thanks, Linda

    • We definitely try to, Linda! Sometimes we forget to take a picture, or time gets away from us and we just forget to post the finished product, but otherwise, yes, we do definitely post finished quilt pictures!

  4. I just came across your site when needing quilting ideas for a t shirt quilt. I wish I had found this before I started mine. Still in the piecing phase. Since my T shirt blocks are different sizes framing them to be same size has been a nightmare Anyway I love your sense of humor and would love to hear what your girls are up to as quilters Thanks

  5. Your pdf on “How to Make a Tee Shirt Quilt” is simply the very best I’ve ever read. I’m a beginner tee shirt quilter – in fact I never even owned a sewing machine before I decided I wanted to make tee shirt quilts for both of my children once they graduated from high school. I’ve taken lots of classes which got me through the first one. Now, three years later, I’m making the second one and I forgot some of the basics. With your fantastic document, it all came back to me! I’m now getting ready to do the border. thank you for your clear, helpful instructions!!

    • I’m so glad you liked it, Kris! That’s our goal – easy, clear instructions without extraneous jargon for beginners and experienced quilters alike. Happy it helped!

  6. I love your tutorial on how to make a T-shirt quilt. I am making one for a friend. Her grandson was a football player in high school and a wrestler. He is a big guy, 6’5″ so his shirts are big. Anyway I see after I printed out the instructions that your site says I shouldn’t copy this without your written consent. May I use this copy I made?
    Thanks again for your tutorial. It is great.

    • You can absolutely use the instructions, Ann! We ask that you don’t copy and distribute our tutorials, but direct others to the site to print off their own copy. Thank you for asking, and have a great time making your t-shirt quilt. And be sure to send us a picture of it – we’d love to see it!

  7. Your T-shirt quilt instructions were the absolute easiest to follow. Having never done a quilt (except a baby play pad) I was overjoyed at the detailed instructions!! So happy that I happened upon your site while just searching. My granddaughter was so proud and excited that I had her quilt finished in time for graduation. Her sister says she will need one in 7 years! Will definitely save your instructions!!

    • I’m glad the instructions were clear for you, Paula! We’d love to see a picture of your quilt. Please send a picture to Cindi (at) seamstobeyouandme (dot) com. We love showing off quilts others have made from our tutorials!
