HexNMore Quilting Ruler from Patchwork Posse

HexNMore Ruler / Mix And Match table runner

Materials Needed: 

HexNMore Ruler

Material fabric

Mix and Match pattern (free for IAQ members)

This is such a fun project to make and explore using the HexNMore ruler.  

Size is 17″ X 21″ but really could be expanded easily if you add more of the diamond shapes to the ends.

For the quilting I used my walking foot.  Kept it simple with straight lines.  I did change the direction of the straight lines to mix it up. 

For the outside border, I followed the half hexagon shape and echoed the shape.

Here’s ...

Time Flies.... from Wollie Mammoth

It is a funny thing...time...sometimes it flies by and other times it creeps by.  There are moments that tick away at a pace a tortoise could pass and other times you wonder where the time has went.  My week vacillated between the 2.  We have come to tell time by Silas time...having our grandson twice a week means he has become our Grandson Time Keeper, LOL.  This week he had a dentist appointment because he fell and bumped his front teeth...all is ok but it is interesting to me how much we already count on our ...

Flow of Consciousness from Patchwork Times by Judy Laquidara

A few months ago, I started a “flow of consciousness” journal. I had heard about it, thought it was kinda stupid but it kept popping into my head so I thought I’d try it and honestly, I think it clears my head and I feel more focused. I get out of bed, brush my teeth,...

The Prettiest and Strongest Seam: The Flat Felled Seam from Art Gallery Fabrics-The Creative Blog

Hello my fellow makers!

Today we will talk about the Flat Felled Seam, a seam that lays flat on the right and wrong sides of your project. It is famously known for its strength and beauty. You can find it in your daily life on the sides of your jeans, in men’s shirts, and even in outdoor gear like camping tents. Also, you can find it in a more sacred place like the Pojagi patchwork, a Korean artform that uses improvisational piecing joined by hand sewn flat felled seams. Pojagi pieces are used to wrap special presents, protect sacred ...

Christmas Corner February 2021 from Sunshine in the Attic

Merry Christmas Corner!


I completed one and made progress on one project from the Jumpstart on Christmas Five Day sew along from last fall, which was a fundraiser by Sara Diepersloot of the Modern Quilter to help victims of the fire in the Santa Cruz mountains.

The finished project is a cute table runner with three focal squares in a square in an off set square, which gives it that Modern flair.

Close up you can see some of the quilting.

I love this pattern and will make it again one of these days!


On the second project, I completed ...

Links, Minor Quilting Mystery, Snug Bunny from Canadian Needle Nana


February is moving along quickly and out rather quietly.
 Have had more gently but steadily falling snow that's been going on for days and then some warmer temperatures. Those loosened the banks of icy snow on our roof and that came down in a series of crashes that sounded like thunder. Where it all landed on the front steps made for quite a shoveling job, one that required Hubby's help too. In fact, we couldn't lift it...wet snow is heavy, so wound up fashioning a new set of steps out of snow. 
This old photo shows ...

Good Things from Quilt in Piece

THURSDAY, FIRST WEEK OF LENT Good Things Ask, and it will be given you; search, and you will find; knock, and the door will be opened for you… how much more will your Father in heaven give good things to those who ask him? —Matthew 7:7 Jesus teaches that it’s okay to ask for what we want and need! Not only is it okay, he encourages us to ask because, like any loving parent, God wants to give us good things. Notice that it is “good” things that God wants to provide for us. Maybe a brand-spanking-new sports ...

Modern quilt with Christmas ornaments and trees from Pieced Brain

Modern quilt with Christmas ornaments and trees

Get this free quilt pattern and make a modern quilt with Christmas ornaments and trees. Work with the fabrics I did or your favorite or Christmas fabrics!

I can’t believe I forgot to write a post about the quilt Deck the Halls that I designed for Dear Stella Fabrics. I worked with their collection Sparkle All the Way but it would look great with any of their Holiday fabric lines (I love “Baby it’s Cold Outside”. No, wait… so many options!).

Deck the Halls measures 53-1/2″ x 64″ – a perfect lap quilt size. The blocks are large ...

Pier Pressure from ... Cat Patches

We had a perfect day of weather for our visit with Mike's sister yesterday. The plan was always to have some lunch at the Oceanside Harbor and then head to the Oceanside Pier. I believe of all the places we visit when we return to this area, the Oceanside Pier is my favorite. This was where we spent summers when we were teenagers. Of course, there are other beaches in the area, but this was always our spot for the 4th of July, when they shot fireworks off the pier. We'd make a day of it, bring dinner ...

Pieces From The Past - The Pride of Ohio from Melva Loves Scraps




This letter from 1949 was written 3 years after the closure of Camp Trinidad.  Three years!  It is the last of the letters that Phillip and Katie received from the men that worked in their sugar beet fields. 

Riesa, Jan 30, 1949


Very honored Mr. Schleich!

Please forgive if I allow myself to approach you with a very large request.  It is well known to you that we do not lie on a bed of roses here, and in this way to tell you how pleased we would be and how much good it would be to our bellies, if ...

Changes to Class Schedule...and to my Life! from Shawkl

Please note that I have changed the Course Calendar Schedule. Some additional dates have been added to existing courses; but dates for new courses have been bumped back a couple of months.


I need that extra time to get my life back on track since the kids have moved out. The embroidery and patchwork patterns are done for all 3 of the advanced courses; but the "stitching" is not finished so I'm progressing through the photo taking phase...then, I have to finish the writing; edit and organize the class. So, not going to get the first one done ...

Yosemite Firefall February 2021 from Sew'n Wild Oaks Quilting Blog

 Hello Everyone,

Tuesday morning at o-dark-hundred, we set off from the cabin for the 2-hour drive to the entrance of Yosemite National Park so we could witness this, the natural firefall.  You have to make a reservation first to get into the park....which we did, to see this phenomenon and Mother Nature at her very best.  It ranks up there with the many wonders of the world.


When the moon is in the 7th house, and Jupiter aligns with Mars.....well not really, but many things need to be in alignment for this to be visible. There needs to ...

FUN ZOOM WORKSHOP from The Proficient Needle

 Saturday morning, 18 quilters were on Zoom, ready to start at          9 a.m.  Everyone enjoyed sewing in their own space, not carrying sewing machines, and all the extra necessary items to a different location.  It was also a good way for some of our newer members to be able to put a face to the name, a difficult task with a large group!

Of course, everyone worked at their own pace, and several needed some extra help, but everyone had a good time, including me!

By the end of our session, all the runners were just waiting for the ...

Pretty Irish Chain with Applique from Night Owl Quilting

  

When Lori sent a photo of this quilt top asking for custom quilting (and especially feathers), I couldn't wait for it to get to the top of my list!


The recipient of this quilt loves feathers and more traditional quilting, so feathers wreaths were the request for the open white spaces.


I added continuous curves in the chain section, and because of the white in all the prints, I was able to use white thread for all the quilting.


The pretty flower details in the border were all hand appliqued.  I stitched around the applique and added a simple ...

Texas Electric Bills from Patchwork Times by Judy Laquidara

Do NOT believe everything you read. There is so much misinformation out there about the Texas power grid and current bills. I do not know everything there is to know about power in Texas but if you do not live there, or have never lived there, chances are you know less than I do. As...

I Heart You from Prairie Moon Quilts

I started AND finished this quilt this year, so I feel it’s worthy of mention! It’s rare that I complete something in such a timely manner.

This pattern is I Heart You by V and Co., and I bought the pattern a long time ago, but had yet to make it. Before Valentine’s Day this year, I thought it would be a good time to do it.

I also thought it would use up way more fabric than it did! But I did use up some scraps and leftovers, so it all helps. I guess if I ...
