Delays from Quilting and More...

It’s been a while since I’ve posted, but there have been few little glitches in my progress. First of all, with the new MacOS that will be coming (next month?), I really had to get going on revamping my web site. This blog is safe, but the other part of my site was reliant on […]

Doll Sweater from Patchwork Times by Judy Laquidara

Yesterday I mentioned that I was making a doll sweater for a friend’s granddaughter, as well as a matching sweater for the granddaughter. I had planned to make Tallulah for the granddaughter. I had already made that pattern for Addie and knew it was a quick and fairly easy pattern. As I searched for a...

Memories of Summer from MulticoloredPieces

The lingering memory of summer this year is of blistering heat waves of over 100° F./40° C. that kept me glued to the A/C.



And yet, my small sketchbook reminds me that there were many wonderful moments with family and friends. Leila Hejaiej, a singer of classical Tunisian music, gave an excellent concert in Tunis. 

I sketched the musicians in her orchestra...in the dark.  











Then we spent the 4th of July in Korba (a beach town on the Mediterranean) 












and attended a graduation celebration with local musicians. 

The high point of the summer was a week in ...

sewing saturday purple's and purchases from Not Afraid of Color

The studio was alive with color this week! Since the design wall is covered with lattice blocks, even more lattice blocks stacking up in the little black bins holding it up, I filled the portable design wall with my purple flowering snowball blocks.
These are slower to make than some blocks, cutting is challenging even with the rotating mat and acrylic templates. as always it was fun to go through my box of purple scraps to find the right sizes to cut pieces from. I don't like to cut into usable larger pieces, so I try to match the ...

How to Attach Leader Cloth to a Longarm from The Free Motion Quilting Project

Today we’re learning how to attach leader cloth to a Grace Qnique longarm on a Continuum Frame. This can be kind of tricky and complicated so follow along with me as I show you how to attach the leader cloth step by step.

 

Click Here to check out the Continuum Frame I’m using in this video. The Continuum is a traditional 3 rail frame and I love that it can grow with you as your skills improve as a quilter.  I’ve just recently expanded my frame and very soon I’m adding quilt motion as well!

Two Months In–Leader & Ender Check! from Quiltville's Quips & Snips!


While I can’t share much of what has also been going on behind the scenes (It’s that time of year!) I can show you just what was accomplished as Leaders & Enders in just YESTERDAY’s round of sewing mayhem.

These little cuties have just stolen my heart.  Have you jumped in on this year’s Shoo Fly Shoo Leader & Ender Challenge?  We just started in July.  It runs all year long.  There is no specific completed project, no particular block size to shoot for – the objective is to use your scraps.  To cut block sets out ahead of ...

A Happy Quilty Sunday from Life in the Scrapatch


I am quilting.

My hubby picked a bright variegated thread for




I picked an easy to do edge to edge, free motion pattern that complimented the fabric. 


Late at night,  I picked a blue swirl 108" wide fabric for the backing and cut and loaded it ...

Oh, No! 

This is wrong.  it should be under the other bar in the back.

Rather than take out all those pins,


I took out the back bar, loosened the backing and set the bar back where it belonged 
on the top of the backing fabric.

That was ...

Pumpkin Love from Canadian Needle Nana

Once a week I drive past a field where pumpkins lie. Suddenly they are much plumper and dotting the field with orange as far as the eye can see. For some reason, this always makes me feel happy.  Maybe because I did not grow up with such fields, they now intrigue me or perhaps because I loved Halloween as a kid and they remind me of that.  Or it may be simply that the orange found in nature is so cheerful.
 This made me think of past autumn stitching that featured pumpkins.
 Here is the pumpkin I appliqued for the ...

Week 37 of 2019 - More Stitching and Stashing from Life In Pieces

It's been another busy week, topped with a hectic Saturday.  I'm hoping that Sunday is much more relaxed. Fitting in even just 15 minutes of stitching time each day has been challenging.



On top of the busy schedule, the autumn allergy season is here. It's a few weeks early due to the wet summer and it's miserable.  Evening naps to dissipate the sinus headaches have taken another bite out of my evening stitching time. Even with that I did manage to work in my 15 minutes every day last week.

15 minute days/week = 7/7 ...
