Daily Progress from Adventurous Quilter

 I'm in pattern testing mode this month as I prepare to release my Halloween Adventures quilt book.
 I've been feeling unwell, but I'm trying to pattern test and edit one block per day. Yesterday it was this skull block. I'm thrilled with how it turned out!
So far I've tested three of the thirteen blocks. I'm really enjoying this project! 
Just doing one block a day is giving my body the rest time it needs right now. But my creative side needed a couch project! So I'm knitting some cotton dish cloths. Once ...

Black and white......... from Exuberant Color

I purchased a new batik, black on a white background.  The gray design is the black showing through from another layer.  I want to use a fairly large shape to show off the design better and think maybe my half hexagon die would be a good choice.
My older black and white batiks are on a shelf but I know there are more in a box a few shelves lower.  A lot of them are larger designs too.

Have you seen this quilt that Victoria Findlay Wolfe made?  It is in her "Modern Quilt Magic" book published by C&T ...

Time to Join Soccer Academy from Baby Geniuses Fabric Collections

For several decades, soccer enjoys the tag of being the most popular sport on this planet with an unparallel fan base compared to any other sport so far. Initially it was largely played by men nonetheless this trend has witnessed a drastic change in the recent past accepting a wide female participation in the game. In several communities, the inculcation of soccer skills into the younger generations has been a traditional affair as many kids start playing soccer as soon as they are grown enough to run around on their own. redditsoccerstreeams

The Year Round from Quilt Art by Olena Pugachova

I didn't realise that I haven't yet posted anything about the quilt I made last February for our branch exhibition "Seasons in the Park". The reason I remembered about it is that I have recently taken out the quilt in question to put it on the wall for its seasonal stunt.


In one of the previous posts I showed the process of making the background for it, it's a mosaic of 1'' (finished) squares and the technique is described in my tutorial here (it's not my idea, it's a technique all around the internet). The ...

Mein Täschchen from Grit's Life

Hallo Ihr Lieben,

....nun ist genug mit Täschchen nähen..... für mich jedenfalls.

Die Anleitung für "Mein Täschchen" ist fertig und als freier Download mit 8 verschiedenen Mustervorlagen für das aufgesetzte Muster im www.gritslifeshop.de erhältlich.

Als Druckanleitung ist die Anleitung für "Mein Täschchen" ebenfalls im www.gritslifeshop.de erhältlich, allerdings nicht kostenfrei. (hier sind von jeder Vorlage bereits 2 Kopien enthalten)

Ich habe eine Materialpackung für das aufgesetzte Muster zusammen gestellt.

Symposium survey results (and the Peacock Party) from Wendy's Quilts and More

Thank you to everyone who filled in my survey.  I received 111 responses which certainly exceeded my expectations.

The best news is that everyone was very pleased with their tutors.  The Symposium committee did a great job of selecting skilled tutors who taught inspiring classes.

Our excellent tutor, Margaret Sampson George third from left

The New Zealand Quilt Symposium model is a unique model in quilting these days.  A group of volunteers offer to run:

Glass Half Empty from Romany Quilting

Although I try hard, I’ve always been a “glass half empty” sort of girl, and tend to think a lot of “what if”.  Which doesn’t do my peace of mind any good at all.  About a month ago I had to go and have one of these, an MRI.  This was because after my recent colonoscopy I had a polyp removed, sent to the lab, and it came back positive.  The MRI was to check that there was nothing else nasty hiding inside.

The night before my appointment to get the results I was trying to get to ...

enchanted sal - babette from easypatchwork

Hi everyone! Thanks for joining us for another Sunday edition of our Enchanted Sew Along. Are you excited? I certainly am! I truly love sewing together the enchanted figures. This week is one of my favorites - Babette. Babette is French and means - my God is plentiful. It is a very fitting name for the second angel in our series. If you have purchased the pattern, you may have realized that the

A Quilt Finish: Geese on a String from Jo's Country Junction

I finished one of the childcare Christmas Quilts.  Here is Geese on a String from Bonnie Hunter’s book String Frenzy.


I’m so happy to have it finished.  I started this way back when Bonnie Hunter had a tutorial on making the stringed triangles.  I immediately grabbed my scrap bin and started making them.  Then I heard nothing else about them….so the blocks sat.  I was tempted from time to time to resurrect them and make them into something but I was fairly confident that Bonnie would come out with a pattern that included them.

….and she did ...

Really Random Thursday, 10/17/19 from Live a Colorful Life

Here we are in the middle of October already! I am constantly amazed at how quickly 2019 is speeding by.

Two weeks ago we were at Lakeview Cottages for the week.

Beginning on Thursday morning and ending after breakfast on Sunday, I spent my days at a quilt retreat held at the campgrounds right next door to the cottages. There are always two groups of women there--those from our church, sewing in the dining hall, and those from other churches, sewing in the chapel. We share meals. Our group was small this year, just four of us. But it was ...

Hi, all!

Welcome to Friday - the best day of the week, right?  The weekend is just around the corner, and we get to look back and do a little celebrating over what we did during the week!  Are you ready to whoop it up?  Let's get started!

*&*&*&*&*&*&*

Just last week, my daughter and I had a talk with Lilli (my oldest granddaughter) sharing our experiences with following directions, talking about how we had learned the hard way to read the directions carefully, yada yada yada.  Which was about the reaction we got from Lilli.  Smart girl!

Because Wednesday, when ...

Spring into fall from The Academic Quilter

Hi everyone, and happy weekend! We made it through another week. Yay us! Plus, I'm happy to say that I can now do laundry at my house again. It's a small thing, but a really important one. You don't think you'll miss it, but then you run out of clean clothes and all becomes clear. Five hundred dollars later, I have clean socks again. 

And hey-- this week, I finally finished something. Yahoo!


This is the small topper that I made back at the Delaware house. It's small, and it's all scraps, and it ...

Scrappy Hats Day 4 from Quilt Doodle Doodles...

Welcome to Day 4!

Today we will work on Snowman Block Checkerboard brim.  There are 13 blocks all together for this quilt. These sweet snowmen remind me of school recess in the wintertime. I just love all of the sweet faces and different hats! Reminds me when all of the kiddos used to line up to go outside! I used to be a playground supervisor when I worked at the school as a media clerk. There used to be a mad dash to put on the snow gear if there was new snow. Especially if it was the build a ...

Adding Bosal In-R-Form to the Date Night Clutch from Quilt Social

Hello and Happy Friday! All week, I’ve been demonstrating how to make The Library Tote and Date Night Clutch using BOSAL In-R-Form Double Sided Fusible Stabilizer. Yesterday, it was all about applying Bosal In-R-Form and hardware, such as the zipper, the magnetic snap, and anchor straps, to the clutch.

I promise you it’s easy, there are just many small steps. The lining is completely ready to go with a discrete faced zipper pocket, anchor straps and a magnetic snap. The straps for the bag are already made and set aside.

Today, I want to talk about the sides ...
