Raven's Camera Quilt - A Blogger's Quilt Festival Entry from Studio Dragonfly Quilts



It's the Blogger's Quilt Festival week! Each quilter can enter two quilts in the festival and it's so fun browsing through all the entries. There are so many talented quilters. I wanted to be a part of all the excitement.


My favorite finish so far this year is Raven's Camera Quilt. Raven is a professional photographer and my niece. Her mom commissioned this quilt to give her for her birthday.



You can see more pictures and read all about the creation of this quilt here.

Please visit the Blogger's Quilt Festival and be inspired by ...

Pokemon Fridays Sew Along Kick-Off Post from Seriously...I think it needs stitches

Hi! (hand waving) It's the very first Pokemon Friday!  Do you have any Pokemon fans at your house? It was all the rage at our house this summer, from Pokemon Go to a local art camp that had a Pokemon week. So, of course, the natural progression of things led to a quilt. :D Ever since finishing the Minecraft quilt, my son kept asking me when we were going to make another quilt and

Dresses all made! from Susan P Blog

I’ve had a very productive week and I love all the little dresses and the two little rompers – but I don’t want to see another buttonhole or button for a very long time. But it is lovely to look back and see what I have done this week, instead of the normal cleaning and cooking (have to admit – I have done NO cleaning this week!). I took a quick photo before the one little romper went to a mum-to-be who is expecting a little boy

Last of the Stonefields Blocks from Log Cabin Quilter

I have finished all the blocks for the Stonefields quilt.  In fact, more than I need because I did not add in one small batch to my total at some point.  I will have a few extra to play with in case something does not work well.  Lots of block pictures in this post.  Again, I have substituted blocks from other designers if I did not care for a design that came with the pattern or I felt there were too many repeats of a block I did not enjoy stitching.



Again, I made use of a French General fabric ...

The Final Frontier from Quilts....etc.

I decided for my other entry for Amy’s Quilt Festival I would enter The Final Frontier – this was the one I started from Audrey’s Quilty Folk challenge to make a circle a day last year. This photo is from when almost all of the circles were made – there was no “design” in play […]

Visitors and Travel from I Have A Notion

Well I thought I had a post started.... about a week or so ago.... but alas... must have been snatched by that pesky computer gremlin, (which I hope has been excised by taking a very old copy of Photoshop off). I have been busy!!! Very, very busy. And I will be busy for the next week or so... and then I hope things start to settle down and I can begin a routine that has me focusing on "I Have a

Embarrassment of Riches: Rijksmuseum from Quilt & Textile Collections

Embarrassment of Riches: Rijksmuseum
Located in Amsterdam, it isn’t a surprise that the museum is known for the best collection of Dutch art in the world. However, with more than 8,000 artefacts on display in 80 wings...it is almost too much eye candy to be seen in one day. Kay and I were quite determined and mapped out a plan of attack. First we inquired about the textiles on display to be sure we’d included all of those. The attendant couldn’t think of many textiles on display, but dutifully marked a few spots. (We later learned, it wasn’t ...

Maybe tomorrow - from A Left-Handed Quilter

Orphan Explosion from Quilt Paint Create

Last weekend had themes.
Books was the first theme, and then we moved on to orphan projects.
The orphan projects just happened. I think the Universe was having a little fun with me.
It started with a guild friend that may not join again next year. She had some charity quilts at her house and wanted to make sure they got back to the guild. I told her I’d take them and make sure they got quilted. The bag also contained a ziploc of blocks and block pieces. Unexpected, but not a problem.
At the end of the meeting ...

Toiling away from Cats in the Quiltoriium

Got in some stitching time today after a walk, a few hours of freelancing and a trip to Aldi's.

Hand sewing is so hard to do with my glasses on. All these tiny pieces and tiny stitches. But after I finish the first big rosette, I will really feel like this project is cranking along.I am stitching at a little cleared space on my main sewing desk. You can see my unofficial color it in as you go map in this photo. It's not an official creation of Willyne Hammerstein, but I found it by doing a ...

How to Make Finger Puppets from fabric from Fabric and Memories

I have failed miserably in my many attempts to make finger puppets with felt to go with my Quiet Books.  I guess there is a time in which we should just call it quits and give up!  But.. that doesn't mean to forget!  So I fiddled with my  3-D Images  creation idea... and...

LITTLE BASKETS from Q-BITS

On to a new project -----

I've made several of these 4" paper-pieced baskets.  I think this is probably a traditional pattern, but I redrafted it to the size I wanted and changed a few lines along the way.

What's next?
I'm thinking maybe some appliqued flowers are in order!

After that? 
I haven't decided on a quilt set yet, but then that is my usual mode of operation.  I design as I go, auditioning fabrics and letting the quilt tell me what it wants.  The blocks are telling me that this isn't quite right yet ...

Where did the summer go? from Through My Hands

Me trying to not wheeze because of all of the smoke
It is amazing that three months have gone by in a blink of an eye. Summer is at an end and thankfully, we have begun to receive well-needed rain in Oregon. It has been so dry and the fires have really been bad. We were at a Level 1 evacuation level for two weeks and it was a long two weeks. When you are told to get ready to evacuate and you look around your home at what has taken you a lifetime to accumulate, it is an emotional ...

Anyone seen a missing blogger? from Silly Goose Quilts

Sorry, lovely readers.

I think if you go back and look at my past years’ of posting, you’d probably find that I drop off the planet around September. 

September is a very busy month for me.  Lord knows why, it’s only September, for goodness’ sake.

It’s not been all hustle and bustle though.  In my quiet times (waiting in the car…waiting….waiting) I’ve managed to do some hexies. 

Photo 21-9-17, 8 49 10 am

You’ve not seen these ones before.  Some time ago, while cleaning out a cupboard at our quilting rooms, I found this lovely pouch donated by an ...

Philippians 4:8. Covered in Love and Kitchen Wares Fabric Pull.To Do Tuesday. from Faith, Trust and Breast Cancer

Philippians 4:8

Scripture
Observation
What does the peace of God do?
1.  It defies understanding
2.  It guards out hearts and minds in Christ Jesus.  
By the way, what does  "in Christ Jesus" mean?  Let's find out.  
Application
During this study, I read the daily verse as if seeing it for the first time with a blank slate - tabula rasa.  Then I pray (talk to God), meditate (listen to God) and write.  Finally, I try to get a somewhat big picture.  

With that in mind, I asked myself, so how do I get the peace of God?  In ...

Introducing the Splash of Color Quilt Along! from Busy Hands Quilts

Introducing the SPLASH of Color Quilt Along at Busy Hands Quilts!


My friend Shannon of The Flemings Nine suggested that in lieu of sewing gifts for each other for Christmas, we each sew a quilt in similar fabrics in any pattern.  She had the great idea to ask if others would like to quilt along with us, and why, yes, of course, the more the merrier!  We settled on black and white with a SPLASH of color as a theme, and the SPLASH of Color ...

Hello, Canada! from ... Cat Patches

We left Minot on Tuesday morning and drove due north for most of the day on our way to Riding Mountain National Park in Manitoba, Canada. It was dark and rainy, and the weather was true to its forecast of thunder and lightning storms toward late afternoon and into the evening. For our drive, it rained steadily for most of the day. The cloud cover was low, making it very dark.

We passed a few more abandoned structures before leaving North Dakota. For some reason, I'm charmed by these old buildings, no matter how badly deteriorated they are.
