Het randje van de replica quilt.... from Quilts Van Kippetje en Meer

Nu de 24 grote blokken van de replica quilt bijna in elkaar zitten ben ik druk bezig met de blokjes van de rand.

Deze zijn een heel stuk kleiner dan de grote blokken. De grote blokken bestaan uit 36 kleine blokjes, de randblokken uit slechts 4. Dat scheelt. 

Alle vier blokjes zijn zó geschikt dat de lichte kanten naar het midden gericht zijn.

In totaal maak ik 60 randblokjes ( en nog 4 voor de hoeken) en tot nu toe heb ik 4 setjes van 10 stuks klaar.

Hierna nog 1 setje van 10 stuks die dus allemaal identiek zijn.
Maar ...

Another Project, Squirrel! from Needle and Foot

After finishing my last quilt, I made a plan to make a bunting with the name of my second grand daughter on it. Her father made mention (not so subtly) that I made one right away for the first grand daughter but have not made one for the second who is now six months old. (I am fairly certain the baby hasn’t yet noticed this injustice but still.) Well, it still hasn’t happened.

I had ordered some fall fabrics from Clothworks and they arrived last week. One of the bolts has a panel for making placemats and I ...

Ganz viele Bäume from Quilt Collection M.

 Weihnachten kommt näher und näher (Lebkuchen und Marzipan gibt es auch schon - hab ich aber noch nicht gekauft) und mein Bäumchenquilt wird immer größer. Die ersten Bäumchen ergeben schon einen Mini-Wald. Ein solches kreuz-und quer-Layout ist eigentlich auch nicht schlecht...

Christmas is coming closer (we even have the gingerbread und marzipan in the shops here in Germany) and my tree quilt is growing. Die first tress make a cute little forest. A wonky layout is not tto bad...

I started the tree quilt together with other quilters in an informal quilt along with Roswitha and Marianne. And then Sandra a ...

Stash Hash Quilt-Along: Week 10 from A Little Bit Biased

 Hello, hello!
Welcome to week 10 of the Stash Hash Quilt-Along!

If you are making the throw size quilt then you are finished making blocks!  Yay!
You can use this week to catch up or start sewing your blocks into rows.
If you're making the full size quilt, the assignment is to make 3 Hashtag blocks.

Here are mine.

I'm getting excited to finish this quilt!
I'm even starting to think about how I want to quilt it!
I could do cables to look like a winter sweater or some sort of swirly snowflake pattern.
Do you ...

Alaska from Quilts....etc.

Quilting on Alaska is coming along so much faster on the second half of the quilt then it did in the beginning and I think that was because I was planning and plotting the quilting design as I was going – now that the first half is done it is now repeating the design to […]

Searching for candidates.............. from Exuberant Color

Sometimes the fabrics I pull as candidates for my solids with prints quilts don't end up working, mainly because the scale of print is too large.  I think the bicycles will only work on one of the quilts.

I think all of these will end up the remaining 3 quilts.

The print on the left will work but the other 2 are pretty large prints.  I will still audition them.

I think these are the right scale to work in at least two of the quilts.

It is warming up a little more each day so I think my ...

Monday make - Jeliquilts cushions from Just Sew Sue

Last weekend was the Sewing Shindig virtual retreat and I am exhausted. I did however finish three items with one left to bind, so I am pleased with my achievements over the weekend. I also did about half of the FURY block from the Tattoo quilt from HappySewLucky.

The first class was Foundation piecing with Kelly of Jeliquilts. We had one of the patterns in advance so I may have used it a a leader and ender project over the last two weeks. However I also cut out the pieces for a log cabin pattern which I pieced traditionally. 

For ...

One down - from A Left-Handed Quilter

And eleven to go - ;)) I finished the first potholder -The rest are trimmed and ready to be bound - And the binding strips have all been cut -  My machine doesn't like the upholstery fabric in these -And it's not my best work - But I think they will serve the purpose - They're big and thick - LOL - ;)) Hopefully I'll be able to finish the rest of them soon - I still need to "un-sew" some

Desgn Wall Monday - September 21, 2020 from Small Quilts and Doll Quilts

Good Morning Quilters!  Quilting activity:  I am working on a doll quilt that I am trying to put names in the center of signature blocks.  It is not going well so far.  I am experimenting with waste cloth cross stitch, desolvable cross stitch foundation, and just regular embroidery of a name.  I am debating tearing out what I’ve done so far and starting over.  The usual disappointment when

What I’m Working On…. from Jo's Country Junction

I had a busy week and didn’t get a lot of stuff done.  Kayla was here for two overnights.  We celebrated Carver’s birthday one night.  I visited a new baby and did errands one day.  I submitted a project for publication.  I got another one sent in and I did a BIG packaging up of charity quilt tops to be sent out.

So…my Hawk’s Nest quilt didn’t get any further.

I did however pull out my Quilted Twins mystery.

Do you remember what that looks like?

I had about three other things I should have ...

Renovation Finished! Quilting Studio Tour 2020 – Podcast #140 from The Free Motion Quilting Project

Yes, our renovation is finally finished and I’m celebrating with a new tour of my quilting studio! It has been a very long, very difficult six months. I am very happy with our new space and even more happy to be getting back to quilting.

If you’d like to see just how much things have changed in the past six months, you can see the “before” version of this studio tour too. This was shared in January 2020, one month before the basement flooded:

A lot has changed! We finally have a beautiful, bright basement that is a ...

Printed circles for grandbaby – Part 1 from Stitching Matters

This is 90” wide fabric that I purchased to make the youngest granddaughter a quilt for her bed.  I barely have time to piece lately, so whole-cloth is the way to go when I need something done.  The fabric arrived just as I was about to finish the last of the 3 customer quilts I did and I looked forward to do something for myself without a deadline or an eager customer waiting for me to finish.

Well, as the saying goes, life happens while you are making other plans and just as I had this fabric loaded, I got ...

Cross Stitching Not Beading Day from Quilting My Way

 This morning I was surprised that both of us were up by 7 am. It was one of those morning where I was about to work on my stuff....and then Sophie took over my chair. I let her, and played some games. 

Then I pulled out my cross stitching. It was hard getting clue why. Almost as if I wanted to do something but didn't have a clue what. So, I sat, got up, sat again, got up...and that went on for a good couple hours. 

When I finally got my rear in gear and ...

Monday Making from Love Laugh Quilt

I had a teeny tiny bit of that cute alphabet fabric in my stash.
JUST enough to put this little toddler quilt together.
Truth be told....
I had to piece one of the 6" squares.
Can you see it in the bottom left??

I used a smattering of yellows for the sashings
and blues from my 3" square drawer.
Do YOU have a 3" square drawer?
and a  2", 2 1/2",......drawer as well?

I also added to my newest scrappy project this week.
Last week I had ONE block.
Now it has some company!

What are YOU making ...

Southern Star blocks from Lily Pad Quilting

The next block in our Summer Moon journey is what Carrie calls the Southern Star. This is a beautiful star block, and was very easy to construct. It's 90% half-square triangles, and the other 10% are just squares!

It's fun to play with the placement and decide if you want total scrappy happiness, or if you want it a bit more controlled . . . 

I decided I liked that last arrangement the best, so then it was time to sew up all three!

The next block will be the Checkerboard, and I will have some construction tips!

Till next time,

Sunday, Fun day? from WAZOO! Newsbits

I know its Sunday, but I  had a quilting job to do for a friend. I really didn't do much sewing, just finished quilting Cowboy quilt #3 and sewed the binding by machine.

All finished. I added the binding and it is completely done now!

Panto: Jetty

I had this fabric in my stash and thought it kind of looked like tooled leather.

A customer sent me a project she started years ago and got stymied with. The diamond log cabin blocks were made, but she couldn't figure out why they weren't fitting together. Her challenge for ...
