FLOURISH: New QAL from Nestlings By Robin

 Well-Loved Ladies was a Huge success
and we still have many that are 
working on it because it really
isn't a quick project:)

As promised many moons ago, 
a smaller more attainable project
would be next so that those 
intimidated or not up to the 
task of WLL would be able to
join the quilt along fun and 
sharpen their skills for when
they are ready to tackle WLL. 

Twice a month starting July 1st,
I will present a tutorial via a
post here & FB that prepares us 
for the next step in the quilt along.

You will need ...

A better photo................ from Exuberant Color

I took my Kaffe orphan blocks off the design wall in the basement so I could get a better photo of this quilt top.  It measures 60" x 84".

For a little perspective here it is waiting to be photographed on a 96" wide x 84" tall double design wall.

I decided to get a photo of the Annabelle Hydrangea bush in case it rains.  As I watched the news and weather last night they were still undecided if we were going to get 1.9" of rain or none at all.

I planted one Canna bulb and it has ...

It's Winter from Wendy's Quilts and More

Yes, it's winter here, and the raindrops certainly are falling on my head.  

A lot of people marvel at how green New Zealand is.  That's because it rains a lot here. So it seems appropriate that I'm back working on my "Raindrops are Falling on my Head" quilt by Willyne Hammerstein.  

Strangely enough though, my quilt is full of hot colours, so I might have to think of a new name for it before I finish it.  

I'm hand piecing this quilt.  I used to do a lot of English Paper Piecing, but I found it ...

Friday round up from Just Sew Sue

We have spent four days in London this week and as I have no crafty goodness to share with you, I thought I'd share some photos that might inspire. The London Underground was a little quieter than usual and there was a lot less traffic but more bicycles. There seemed to be a lot of people who didn't wear a mask properly or had it as a chin guard. However we had our Covid test on our return yesterday and as we are double vaccinated, we have a negative result and can go out and about from this ...

Time in the Garden from Jo's Country Junction

I told you that I had a couple of days off last week.  I didn’t want a big vacation or even time away.  All I wanted was to finish up some projects at home…mainly the garden and landscaping.

For a long time, I had a flower garden in front of my regular vegetable garden.  The garden always looked unkept.  I was just never happy with it.  I’d weed the veggies and then get pooped out and not weed the flowers.

I had a goal to do something different.

I ended up making the flower garden much smaller ...

Can I Get A Whoop Whoop? A New T-Shirt Quilt for a Special Person... from Confessions of a Fabric Addict


Hi, all!

It's Friday!  And a long-anticipated Friday for me, because today is the beginning of vacation!  Whoop whoop whoop!!!  But before I get totally distracted by sunshine, sand and the Gulf of Mexico, let's do a little whooping together.  Ready?  Let's go!


Meet Adeline!  Adeline was recently diagnosed with a rare form of cancer, and her mom wanted a quilt made with t-shirts with notes of encouragement donated by her friends and family.  

When she came to me, I agreed to make the quilt for her.  It is an honor to be part of those cheering ...

Triple Play! 10″ Papers from The Cutting Table Quilt Blog - A Blog for Quilters by Quilters

Join Jenny, Misty and Natalie in an all new Triple Play featuring three unique patterns utilizing 10" papers.
Join Jenny, Misty and Natalie in an all new Triple Play featuring three unique patterns utilizing 10″ papers.

In 1899, an unknown quilter began stitching fabric scraps on a paper foundation. Alas, the quilt was never finished. (It happens to us all!) The incomplete top is on display at the Virginia Quilt Museum, and the paper is still intact.

Busy At Mom's from Quilting My Way

 This morning I headed over to moms. I took my Chia tea with me to make her some tea. That way I didn't have to go and buy her one. I also did a cold Chia tea for me and took it with me. 

I took all my tubs of QOV fabrics. When I arrived mom was out to the bank. I got started by getting a few things ready for mom. I pinned the corners of the blocks for her to sew. When she arrived we got going. I made her tea and then went back to iron ...

Big Red House Finished from Patchwork Times by Judy Laquidara

Big Red House won’t be “fully finished” til the frame arrives, but the stitching is done and that means I finished the June Cross Stitch Camp project with plenty of time to spare. I kinda surprised myself. It wasn’t huge – finished at about 7.25″ x 5.25″ but there were a good many stitches in...

The post Big Red House Finished appeared first on Patchwork Times by Judy Laquidara.

Plodding Along from Quilty Folk

 There's not going to be a lot going on here quilty-wise in the next month or so, but hopefully I won't go completely dark! No matter what else is happening around me, I can usually squeeze in a bit of hand quilting, so there's that.

Sweet Hospitality is done!

The latest quilt finish is Sweet Hospitality. It's been in the quilt top stage since late in 2018. I loved the old fashioned pineapple blocks when I first started them, but somehow, somewhere, the quilt lost its pizazz for me and then, more or less became a ...

What have I been up to? from Mel's quilting blog

I toss my extra fabrics, cut off scraps, etc into a laundry bin by thirty-one.
I used to empty it weekly to make sure I had a clean space.
Well, I have been lax on that for about a year.
I decided to clean it out.
I wish I'd take a photo of the bin before.
These need to be put away, but I'm not able to do it yet.
Next time DD comes home, I'll ask her for help.
These are all the scraps that need to go in the scrap drawers.
The bin after it ...
