Broken Herringbone from Night Owl Quilting


Bridy made this great quilt using the "From Far and Wide" fabric collection from Kate and Birdie.  This truly Canadian collection is really interesting in a non traditional colour palette.  This pattern is Broken Herringbone from Violet Craft. 

Bridy chose the Maple Syrup pantograph which fits the theme perfectly.  Bridy treated herself to more fabric from the collection for the quilt back and the pantograph shows up really well there.

To Do Tuesday from My Sewing Room

I played cards yesterday afternoon with some friends, so the projects I planned to work on at home didn't happen.  We hadn't gotten together for almost 2 weeks due to graduations and some travels. So it was so good to catch up with them, while playing Hand & Foot. 

Three more stuffed "critters" have been paired with doll quilts for a donation project I'm working on. Last Friday my granddaughter helped me find some very cute little animals - at the right price.  They had to stay in that $5 range. However, Sophia talked me into that cow - which ...

Boxed Up :: A Finish from Alamosa Quilter

 This one took me a while to quilt. I used rulers for the whole thing. It took so long because I didn't get a chance to work on it for over a week. Too busy with other things at the shop!

Here is another photo of it without shadows.

I Heard It Through the Pumpkin Vine from Sew'n Wild Oaks Quilting Blog

 Hello Everyone,

I've been growing more pumpkins over the past couple of days using my Hearthstone fabric collection combined with Lanacot Wool, both by Marcus Fabrics.

I think I may be dreaming that I'm going to take pumpkins with me to New York and get some stitching done in the downtime....if there is going to be a spare minute.

I finished stitching this cutie the other day.  I LOVE working on wool applique!

I have to get serious about packing for the trip. There is just so much to think about and do, and all I want ...

To Do List for the Week of 6/6/2023 from Life In Pieces

It's been a long couple of days. My back is slowly improving.  The only place I can sit comfortably for more than a few minutes is my sewing room chair.  So I went with that to spend most of Sunday and yesterday in my sewing room.  I can sit at the computer desk for about 30 minutes at a time, so I'm slowly replying to emails and catching up on everyone's blog. But all the sewing room time paid off in a fully checked off to do list.  

To Do List for 5/30/2023

Lots of Projects and No Progress from From My Carolina Home

It seems like all I am doing lately is flitting from one project to another and not making progress on anything. I loaded Quadrille on the longarm, and have been staring at it for days, with no plan on how to custom quilt it. The big reveal for Quadrille’s last step and final block is Friday. Would you like a sneak peek to see it on the frame?

Oh, you really didn’t think I’d give it away ahead of time, did you? Bwahahaha!! But you can see the lovely pink dogwood print I’m using for backing ...

What's wrong with my feet? from Crazy Quilter on a Bike!

I'm starting to think there's something seriously wrong with my feet. Those new sandals? They feel great, although I wouldn't be able to wear that pair on the Camino as they will be too small after one week of walking. However, I noticed a wee twinge in my heel as I walked, and when I came home, it was to discover a hot spot forming just below the neoprene strap at the back. How the heck is this happening? 

The skin is not damaged in that area; there were no prior blisters. But I appear doomed with ...

Quilt Block Mania - June is Places from The Inquiring Quilter

Welcome to my stop on the Quilt Block Mania Blog Hop. Each of the designers participating in the hop are sharing a block pattern inspired by this month’s theme, which is Places.

I had a hard time with this one I will admit. Should I do London? Paris? Somewhere in Ireland? Finally though I hit on the one place I love to return to as often as I can—the beach!

To learn how to get my free pattern, see How Do I Get the Free Beach Pattern? at the end of this post.

Bordering the Waves from Fret Not Yourself

To be happy at home is the ultimate result of all ambition; 
the end to which every enterprise and labour tends.
~Samuel Johnson


Is it just me or is anyone else having difficulty adding photos to their posts? I've sent messages to Google but have yet to see an improvement. Eventually I got two photos added; don't ask me how. 

The border idea worked. One light and one dark unit make a four-patch of triangles. {Look back here to see the basic units.} Groups of four-patches formed this border. 

Adding them only to the top and bottom ...

Pinks and oranges................. from Exuberant Color

I sewed roses and soft med. purples to the dark purple dotted batik yesterday.  Then I looked for some orange and red-orange fabrics to add.  In the photo I'm working on the dark single row borders first.  Any pieces not used in them might end up in the mix for the center section.

I keep looking at this batik trying to decide if it will work.  I'll probably go ahead and cut a strip of it and die cut some triangles.

I went out before noon to see what is blooming.  The yellow Evening Primrose is just starting ...
