International Quilt Market 2014 – Day One from Quilt Expressions Blog

All photos were taken at International Quilt Market.

It took some pretty good planning on Karen’s part, but her plane from Michigan and our plane from Boise landed within minutes of each other in Houston Thursday evening.  We were met in front of the airport by our favorite taxi driver, Bernard.  We spent the drive to the hotel catching up on his life and being entertained by stories of his children.  He’s been the driver of choice for several years now, and we consider him the friendly face that greets us in Houston.  A bit of unpacking and ...

Charming Scrap Quilt from Selvage Blog


What a pretty scrap quilt. Just a simple log cabin block, but so artistically done. Nice colors, good variety of fabrics, especially the one in the center. I like the soft puckery look. Looks like it's been machine washed and dried.

I found this photo on Pinterest, attributed to Etsy. Link goes to a dead end. Too bad. Does anyone know who made this?

Hello! from A Beautiful Day - O Zi Frumoasa


This is my first participation in the Blogger's Quilt Festival, held at Amy's Creative Side.

AmysCreativeSide.com


Among a lot of other urgent things, last week I worked hard at this feathered fellow.


Feathered it's only a way of saying. A lot of quilting I had to do!





All began when I saw this cute owl drawing made by my friend Lenus Dragulelei, a very talented Romanian artist who creates illustration for children books. My brain wheels started to roll quickly:
How I could turn the drawn owl in a quilt, but otherwise than only by applique? And the ...

It's All About The Kids - A Blogging Event with Blogging Friends, Giveaways and More! from Insights From SewCalGal

Next week SewCalGal will be focusing on kid friendly projects, that they might do on their own, or for in a family craft time session.  And, I'll have some blogging friends that will join in, as well as some sponsored giveaways.


I realized I had several blog posts planned that have a kid theme and I was thinking about how many of us find our inner peace and balance when we take time to create.  And, as kids also have stress, I want to encourage us all to look for ways to help kids be crafty and enjoy creating ...

#kittyminiquiltswap from Swink Girl Quilts

Boy, these instagram swaps are addictive!  My second foray into IG swapping was the #kittyminiquiltswap. I had a couple ideas but all that fell to the wayside when I spotted Elizabeth Hartman's cat quilt. I'm a sucker for a rainbow quilt, folks, all day long. I followed Elizabeth's tutorial for making cat blocks and here's what I came up with. My partner, Holly, said she likes grey, purple, and green, so I though I did pretty well color wise. I also quilted it with a very light purple variegated aurifil thread.

Before quilting.

Quilted and bound ...

Monthly Guild Challenge . . . from Lavender Quilts

Tammy over at Two Tangled Threads is in my Sew Small Quilt Guild and she is the one heading up the monthly challenge to learn basic block techniques in tiny quilts.  She does a "small" version and a "smaller" version.

I didn't get last month's done because I waited until the last minute.  Not this month!!  The challenge was a 9-patch.  I decided to do a vanishing 9-patch and I got the flimsie done this evening ~


This is the "small" version and the top measures 17" x 17."  I used the new LOL collection by Me and My ...

From Nedra from Doll Quilters Monthly


I received this lovely fall "Farmer's Market" runner from Nedra.  It is all in flannels!  I LOVE flannel, especially in the Fall.  I had this on my table, but a certain furry red-head thought it was a perfect bed, so I now have it hanging on the wall.  And the little extra flannel has gone into that tote of scrap flannels that are collecting for next Falls big quilt.  

Thank you Nedra for a lovely piece,
Sewingly Yours,
Sharon

Yarn Report – Week 43, 2014 from Patchwork Times by Judy Laquidara

I almost forgot the yarn report!  Vince was home this afternoon so I totally lost track of time. Well, it’s Amy’s fault again. Some of the yarn received is from Knitted Wit, and I’d never heard of them til Amy told me so that’s definitely her fault, right? Then, I had no idea Madelinetosh sold […]

A Bit Of Sharing...Still with Me? from Quilt Hollow


Look at this sweet gift!  Jobi's husband made it for me!

I've been the worse blogger these past months, haven't I?  Lots to show, say and share and can't squeeze it all in this evening but will share a bit.

There has been a lot of quilting.  Here are a few of the "frosted" quilts that are now home being bound by their owners.





I wanted to keep every one of these!  Awesome eye candy right?  More to share but these were readily available at this moment.

Very sweet gift from my friend Karen at Log ...

A Very Heavy, Sad Heart.... from Scraps of Life

Im not sure if anyone even reads Blogs anymore but I have been absent for awhile & need to share what has been going on this last week.

Last Thursday evening we had supper out with our very best friends. They also do weekend Sales for us at Trestle Creek and so after supper they were going home to get the dog and head out to the Golf course for the last weekend of the Season.

As they were preparing to leave home, DawnMarie had a headache that got progressively worse so that she felt she would rather sleep it off ...

Drunkard’s Path Quilt Along from Quilt Obsession

IMG_0067wtmk

Seems I missed a week altogether, but now I have another Drunkard’s Path basket block to add to my first one. I don’t seem to be moving very quickly on making these, which surprises me as I normally churn out little Drunkard’s Path blocks in seconds. Love that curved piecing!

IMG_0064wtmk

So I pulled a few batiks that I think will play nicely as basket blocks and some of these will get used. I now have a setting idea, so will be printing the shapes for and making the centre block next and then will work around it ...

Blogger's Quilt Festival - A Banner Day for Otis from Quilt Matters

The Blogger's Quilt Festival is one of my favourite times of the year! If you haven't been here before, welcome! A huge thank you to Amy Ellis @ Amy's Creative Side for organizing this inspirational bonanza.

I decided to share this bunting quilt I made for my nephew Otis. My sister wanted bright colours for the nursery and picked out some yellow, red and blue fabrics. The inspiration for my design came from Laura's bunting quilt. The fabric for the bunting flags and cording was turned under, secured to the white background with a glue stick and ...

Mini Quilt from Sunshine in the Attic

I've seen some other blogging quilters showing their mini quilts and wanted to make some too.  
This mini quilt is 14" square, made with half square triangles and bordered in white and dark blue print.  
I embroidered a little vine with some pink flowers on each side.
 I wanted to hand quilt it and started the process but it wasn't going too well.  I watched some hand quilting videos and determined that I need a special thimble by the thimble lady and probably special thread and needles too.  Being too impatient to wait, I went ahead and machine ...
