Yummy Colors from Sew Grateful Quilts

This flannel quilt by Patsy has such yummy colors and textures before I even put a needle to it. So I chose Simplicity pantograph and a dusty purple thread. Enjoy!

Thanks for stopping by.

Scrap Happy from Mel's quilting blog

Scrap Happy blogspot has a link up of all the green things.

It's not been a very green month.

Knit Companion Next Gen from Patchwork Times by Judy Laquidara

A new version of Knit Companion has been out for a couple of weeks. It is called Knit Companion Next Gen and the release came with much screaming and gnashing of teeth by some who had been the early purchasers of the “Legacy” version. Some of us who got in on the very early stages...

Prize Winner! from High Road Quilter

I won a charm pack from Brooke at Silly Mama Quilts. Seriously you should go visit her because she has these drawings for prizes quite often, and all you have to do is comment.

This is such a sweet fabric with cute little motifs. I am going to have to find something very special to do with this. I am thinking of Kathleen Tracy's small quilts.

When I got the package though, I found that she had included a lot of other beautiful goodies in the package.  There is a cute pattern by Elizabeth Hartman. 

There are beautiful pink ...

Bigger Than Bigly from Priscilla's Workshop

All the photos of the march against gun violence in DC show clearly that the march is bigger and better attended than Trump's inaugural parade. I sure hope someone points this out to him. Perhaps Sean Spicer should call him.

How to Piece a 6 Pointed Star from Scraps from Pink Doxies

Six Pointed Star Hexie

My last post 60 Degree Shapes talked about experimenting with these blocks, and many of you said this was something on your own bucket lists. It's opened the door to another world of quilts to make, and I thought you might want to join me.

This is a picture heavy post for those of you who need to know before continuing, but you'll know all my tricks from cutting to problem shooting by the end. Shall we do this?

*This tutorial assumes basic sewing techniques of a intermediate sewist.

Spring in Indiana from The Inquiring Quilter

Well, today I was going to take photos of Wicked Envy to show you all, but God had other plans...

Sorry, but I'll have to wait for better weather to finish my photo shoot of Wicked Envy.

Wicked Envy 1.jpg

Until then, I'll spend the day happily quilting! On today's plan is finishing my Island Batik challenge for this month, and making a pillow for the shop.

Zora is going to simply relax on my desk while I work. What are you going to do today?

Diamod Hill is making progress - a hand applique' journey from Dreamworthy Quilts

Hello Blogland!  I spent the past few days out of town for a teacher's convention.  I attended some great classes that gave me so many wonderful ideas as well as some not so great classes.  I have a few more things to pull out of my teacher basket for next school year that I'll be working on this summer.  

I mentioned in an earlier blog post that I took sewing with me.  I didn't take my machine, but I did take a quilt to cut out, which I did.  I also took hand applique' that was pre-prepared ...

Progress from Cats in the Quiltoriium

The day is half over, and so far I have biked 12 miles, done two loads of laundry, morning kitchen cleanup, and printed out the shapes for two more rosettes. I will get the fussy cut pieces underway for them after lunch.

Last night I attached my connectors, but didn't stitch the last rosette in yet.

Then, I sat down to plan out how many pieces I need for the next five rosettes.

I would like to get the remaining pieces done for D and C before Istart stitching. Hoping my afternoon is as productive (and that yours is ...

A Design Wall Epiphany from Quilting Studio Adventures

 My quilty friends are the best.  Holly, with help from Sarah S and Melissa, took my money to QuiltCon 2018 and shopped for me.  Holly knows what I like before I even know what I like.  Look at that terrific red print by Brooklyn Mojo. ( I have already ordered more of this fabric.)  And for the past few weeks I've been looking at a collection by Moda called Catnip.  Relax - no cats.  Just a terrific selection of black and white prints.  And Holly gets one (I have since bought more charm packs and one jelly roll of Catnip).

Bijoux - Oui from Szycie Uli

Najnowsza kosmetyczka, która czekała na wykończenie dość długo. Heksy nadal mi się nie znudziły, a przy okazji doszkalam się w robieniu lepszych zdjęć.
It's my newest zipper pouch that waited too long for being finished. I still love hexies and I'm learning how to make better photos.

Żeby nie było, że tylko kosmetyczki szyję to jest i girlanda zrobiona z moim czterolatkiem.
It's not that I'm making only pouches. It's an bunting made with my four years old son.

I found some green leftovers from Not Afraid of Color

note some blades are from strip sets
Hee hee! I found my green leftovers box !

I found a couple scrap bins and brought them to the loft

We are reluctant to un-box possessions as we hoped to find a more permanent home but... things being what they are, our home still not sold in MD, and homes here so expensive, well, we may be here longer than we thought. So... better go ahead and open some boxes
I got this dresden tool in a magazine for Christmas so I thought I'd try using it... a different angle and size ...

Elderberries from Patchwork Times by Judy Laquidara

Yesterday when I was in the greenhouse and looking at my elderberries, I was curious as to how long it had been since I planted them. The biggest one is almost up to my shoulders! They’re growing so quickly. The biggest one is almost up to my shoulders! They’re growing so quickly. I planted them...

spring birch trees from Making A Lather

birch trees
Today is the rainbow scrap challenge at Soscrappy. And the color is green.
I found 8 - 12 inch pieces of green in my scrap drawer for birch trees. 2 light 4 medium and 2 dark. I really enjoy sewing these. I can get all crazy with the rotary cutter. I have several sets of strings made ahead, and I can just cut them into strips when I am ready. I am keeping with 1 1/2 inches and 2 inch slices so that the leftovers will fit each other to build additional strip sets.

There are lots of ...

My Week from Sew'n Wild Oaks Quilting Blog

Hello Everyone,
I had the pleasure of spending another day in the classroom teaching Grammy Squares at Quail's Nest Quilt Company in Sonora on Wednesday.  The girls were so pleasant and made some beautiful blocks.

It all begins with the center, and you build on it strip by strip, round by round.

We had bugs, and butterflies in the room!

You girls did a great job and I thoroughly enjoyed all of you.

I've been working on one of my quilts for the quilting cruise to Alaska.  I put my Aurora blocks on point.

I'm also making ...

Ta Dah - Another 'Bring Me Flowers' Block from The Hexie Blog

I finished this last night while we kept up with basketball, baseball, softball, and golf. Yup, that's a lot of sports! I think I only have 3 flower blocks left. I hope to start another one today.

I did a bit of machine stitching yesterday and that is coming along nicely - I'll work on that today, too.

But first I have a grocery pickup - I should be getting the text that it's ready any minute now.

Yesterday our neighbor puppy, Angus, joined us on our walk with Cooper. Cooper and Angus are developing a bond. Angus' owner ...
