Beautiful Day from Quilts....etc.

Saturday was such a beautiful day that I wasn’t sewing much – in fact I don’t think I touched fabric until evening.  We were working on our raised vegetable beds.  A photo taken early in the day – but later in the day I had the second bed part way ready – more soil to […]

Split Personality: Spring Bloom Blog Hop (and fabric giveaway!) from Live a Colorful Life

Welcome to today's stop on the Spring Bloom fabric blog hop. Spring Bloom is the first fabric line for designer Amanda Caronia. It is a bright and cheery fabric line and I'm thrilled to be participating.

Awhile ago, I had come up with a positive/negative block involving hexies. So I made a practice block, decided it needed more contrast to make it "pop," set it aside and kind of forgot about it.

When I saw Amanda's fabric,  the block popped back into my head so I asked if I could use black as a contrast fabric ...

Sewing and last treat baked....... from Exuberant Color

I sewed this group of triangle squares and then went down to the basement.






I had seven of these blocks to sew together to prepare the next two columns to be added to the first sewn group.








After sewing those blocks I'm off to the next decision.  You can see I have one more triangle unit to sew before I can sew those 2 rows together.  I need to decide whether to use 2 of the 3 pink/red fabrics next or switch those with those darker purple ones to their right.  After all of the company leaves I ...

Hand Quilting from Quilting Stories

Wisteria

My last three posts showed you my Liberty Four Patch progress step by step.

Forth step : putting the basted three layers on the hoop and starting hand quilting.
After trying many kinds of batting (synthetic, cotton, wool) I found out that for hand quilting the synthetic one gives the best result. You can almost get the Trapunto look by making very small stitches and slightly pulling the thread.

The second picture shows how I use my hoop to quilt the border.

After hand quilting is finished, I sewed the binding as shown here and here, and this is the last ...

Purple stripes: quilt #8 from miss erin crafts


The purple piano keys on the right of the quilt below was leftover from another quilt I recently made and decided to do a simple quilt by pairing it up with the grey and fun backing.  I really couldn't see cutting up the piano keys, so this seemed like the most logical option.


This lap sized quilt is also for a wedding party member.  Everything is from stash except for the tiny piano keys.  They are have charms from a fellow quilter friend!

-Until next time

De brullende leeuw van Ens...... from Quilts Van Kippetje en Meer

Ook dit jaar is er in het kader van het Tulpenfestival



foto: Marga Kuijk


in de Noordoostpolder weer een dorpencompetitie van mozaïeken. 

Dit jaar, evenals de twee voorgaande jaren, is het ontwerp van Marga van Kuijk.
Ze ontwierp een 3D mozaïek in vlammende kleuren!

Uit mijn vroegere jaren in Dorpsbelang weet ik nog dat dit heel veel werk is: de tulpen moeten eerst ( uiteraard) gekweekt, gekopt, gestoken etc. En dat allemaal door een grote groep vrijwilligers. In eerdere jaren gebeurde dat steken ter plekke maar tegenwoordig gebeurt dat eerst in bakken die vervolgens weer vervoerd en geplaatst moeten worden.

Knitting Almost Finished from BedofRosesMQ

I just took this off the needles. It needs threads woven in and blocked. It's a pattern from Kelly Herdrich called In Threes. It's a very easy knit and I wanted to try it out to see how long it would take to knit. Took about 3 evenings watching tv. I used Cascade 220 Superwash color 841 called Moss. It's a much prettier color than the picture shows.
 I'm going to make one for my almost 2 yr old Great Granddaughter and the 3yr old Great Granddaughter. This will be posted over at Patchwork Times check ...

A Pretty Picture for Sunday - A Horse in Granite from Lizzie Lenard Vintage Sewing


A beautiful fountain in a square outside one of the side entrances to the cathedral at Santiago de Compostela.

I went for a six day trip to Santiago last week with my brother.  It is a city built of granite, massive and forbidding under grey skies, but when the sun comes out the stone absorbs the heat and reflects the light in such a way that it feels like a different city.

Welcome to Mona Dolan, the latest follower - thank you for joining!

"Quilt Juffie Goof in Sneek" from Supergoof Quilts


Al heel vroeg op de zaterdagmorgen,
 zat Quilt Juffie Goof in de auto op weg naar Sneek.
Vanuit Tilburg naar Friesland is dat 'n mooi ritje,
en met de radio aan, 
zong ik met de liedjes mee,
maar als het weerbericht langs kwam,
zat ik toch een beetje raar te kijken.

Vandaag is het een grijze dag.
Klopt.
Met af en toe een buitje.
Dat klopt niet.
Het heeft geregend van Tilburg naar Sneek,
zegt deze ervaringsdeskundige.
Maar het kan natuurlijk ook zo zijn,
dat er 'n ondeugend regenwolkje boven m'n auto hing,...
;o)

Blooming Flower Garden from Ros-the-quilter

This is the view from the back deck, it's a natural pond with all kinds of waterfowl, fish and amphibians, unfortunately it's also a haven for water moccasins that mostly stay in the water! Care must be taken to keep the grass short to discourage the snakes from leaving the area and domestic animals are watched closely.


My friend's husband makes a mean mango daiquiri and that's what we had with our yummy lamb shanks, a lovely evening to a successful day.L
Project #3 was our focus today, starting with the strips for the background ...

Latest Mexican blouse gifted this week from Stitch and Yarn

I finished another blouse this week. It was a birthday present for an old friend – not that she's old, just that we've been friends for a long time.

It's been good timing as I'm in the middle of teaching a class on how to make them, so it means I'm reminding myself of techniques and re-reading my notes as I go, to make sure they still all make sense.
The above pic is where the blouse was at last time you saw it at the beginning of the month.
I drew the bodice design to ...
