Second in the Series from Quilting & Learning

Two fabric flowers
Two fabric flowers
My second Escape Art Quilt is done! It had to sit and percolate a while before I was ready to finish it.

I knew that there would be 2 fabric flowers that I had made, although I wasn't sure of their placement. I also wanted to add more embellishment, but didn't want to go overboard (something I can easily do!)

I went in my jewelry box and found a lovely chunky red flower - it's perfect!

I really wanted to add some rose quartz, but where and ...

Update! And a Baby Give-Away from Sunwhower Quilts

Hello all!

I hope that everyone is well and enjoying this mid-winter thaw where we are!  I figured that today was the perfect day to blog about what I have been up to.

As most of you know I really enjoy making baby quilts and baby things - I love the fabrics and the colours - they are fun and cheerful; and, so rewarding in their utility.

I was fortunate enough to teach a round of Mommy and Me fitness classes where the babies were in carriers and the Moms danced and worked out with their babies.  Some of the Mom's ...

There is a whole lot of celebrating going on! Canada's 150th anniversary is a big birthday, although compared to many countries, Canada is really only 150 years young!

Key West Today! from Paula Reid - Machine Quilter

It's an absolutely beautiful day here in Florida. I elected to spend the day on the msOosterdamm and get some hand stitching done on the Valentine's presents quilt binding.

It's been fun sitting here sewing and chatting with people who walk by. Everyone has a quilt story! Either they have a relative who quilts, remembers their grandmother quilting or perhaps has made a quilt or few themselves. One gentleman even told me all about the quilt he won in a donation raffle!

Love listening to the tales and enjoying the scenery. It's about 2pm now, we ...

Roseate ~~ Finish! from Fleur de Lis Quilts and Accessories

On Tuesday I finished up a pretty little pink baby quilt, which I'm calling "Roseate." It's a modern mash-up of all that I've been reading and enjoying for the last couple of months. 





Most of that has been modern quilting books and several blogs that also toy in modern quilting. Of course, I also read a few blogs that are serious about modern quilting. Together, all this reading and playing has sucked me into a spiral of scrap quilting. It's unbelievable how many pounds of scrap fabric I have. And I honestly don't think I ...

Piecing and cutting and piecing . . . from My Sewing Room

This morning has been spent piecing and cutting, and piecing. But LOTS of cutting!

 
This was the final pieced 12" block for the quilt.  The fabric is an over-dyed muslin and sews like a dream! It has that hand-dyed look that gives each piece look like it has some texture.

 
Then I pulled out the setting kit that we received a couple of months ago. I will admit that I've been a bit afraid to cut into this. The background was the scariest part, because it has very specific cutting instructions in terms of which big pieces get cut ...

Petit point, en este caso mini petit point from La Vida en Patchwork

Petit point, en este caso mini petit point

Me encanta probar nuevas cosas, siempre y cuando me resulten espectaculares, porque cada vez me conformo con menos, mi tiempo es muy limitado y voy a lo que me gusta mucho muchísimo. Esta vez me he enfrascado en una gran mini aventura. Gran por la cantidad de trabajo que lleva, y mini porque es tamaño mini.

Y esto es una mini entrada de sábado por si alguien está aburrido y le apetece entretenerse un rato.

Es de una casa francesa, porque a las francesas las encanta bordar, tienen el arte muy metido ...

Spring Quilted Wall Hanging from Magpie Quilts

I'm not always a fan of panels. They are often hard to square up because of the way they've been printed or rolled on the bolt, but I like the whimsical designs of Nancy Halverson (Art to Heart).
 I don't remember when I bought this panel and the coordinating fabrics, but I looking for a spring quilt to hang on my wall. Because of my Dutch heritage, spring means tulips in every shade and color! So I pieced a tulip border.
 When working with pieced borders, sometimes they don't quite finish at the measurement needed. And ...

Germs! from Pinkadot Quilts


I wanted to show you my quilt that I got in the Modern Quilt Guild Swap. It came from Stephanie in Omaha, Nebraska. It is gorgeous and her workmanship is very good. The line of fabric she used is called Blueberry Park, one of my favorites. I really liked how she machine quilted it too. Thank you Stephanie!


This was the quilt I made for my swap partner. The nice part of the swap was they had to be small, less than 24" x 24"



As the saying goes, "no good deed goes unpunished" though punished may be a bit ...
