Change from 2011 into 2021 from Learn to Applique

As I mentioned earlier, it's been 20 years since I started online teaching so today I decided to take a look at what I was doing 10 years ago and a leap forward into what's happening this year.

I was definitely blogging back then as one of my January posts explains what I'd been doing over the Christmas/New Year period and that was remaking some of my quilts....

Quilts from before 2011

From that to this - quite a transformation, don't you think?

This year is going ...

De stam van de holenbeer...... boek van Jean M. Auel from Quilts Van Kippetje en Meer


Dit boek brengt voert je naar de prehistorie waar hoofdpersoon Ayla je mee terug neemt in de tijd. Het boek is all 40 jaar geleden geschreven maar nog steeds mooi. De prehistorie is tijd dat je at wat de natuur je bracht, leefde met de seizoenen en het leven hard was.



 Simpele ziektes fataal waren, je al jong oud was en veel te vroeg volwassen. Ze niet snapten hoe kinderen gemaakt werden en de jacht een gevaarlijke aangelegenheid was. En alles draaide om de geesten die je moest eren zodat ze jou ook gunstig gezind waren .

Finally Adding Flowers from Fret Not Yourself

People overestimate what they can do in a single day and 
underestimate what they can do in their whole lives.
~unknown but possibly Bill Gates


Quilting


With the vines and leaves finally sewn, it's time to sew the flowers. There have been several iterations as you can see by the "cut and paste" of the template under this border. After recopying the entire swag once, I wore out and simply cut the old flower out and taped a new version in. Why? Because the petals extended too far and ended at the edges of the border fabric. 

The flower ...

Puzzled from Happy Cottage Quilter

When Covid hit a lot of us were looking for ways to fill our time as we sheltered at home.  I know many started embroidery, cross stitch, trying new recipes, sending cards, and so forth. For me it was reading. I reviewed 57 books in 2020, and that is not including books I checked out from the library. 

Although reading has been a wonderful way to fill my time at home, I also found one more way to amuse myself. Puzzles. At the beginning of the lock down, puzzles became scarce, like other items. But I found a couple at ...

Starting small............ from Exuberant Color


It is the last week of the month so I have to finish some things.  I'm going to cut myself some slack and allow myself to count small finishes along with my larger finishes.  Previously I just listed the small pieces separately like an afterthought.  I'm not sure why I did that.  I started out with one of the tablerunners.  I think I have 4 of them to quilt.  I did ditch quilting on this one and it is ready to trim.  I plan on sewing on the binding to be ready to hand finish tonight if the ...

Caravanning and Knitting from Romany Quilting

We enjoyed a three day weekend way with our caravan club friends, staying in the grounds of Oroua Downs School 30kms away up SH1.  The Maori name Oroua means “place of dredging for shellfish” with the coast not too far away.   The wind blew, and blew, and blew even harder, meaning that it was only comfortable to sit outside on the day we arrived,  buffeting the caravan and trying it’s very best to whistle back down through the Range Hood over the oven.  After that, with the addition of rain, we made good use of the school hall.

Ready to Start the Cutting from Quilts....etc.

I would like to use my accuquilt  for cutting but with this new quilt “The Rose Garden” I’m going to follow the instructions so I can make sure to get the most out of the fat quarters provided in the kit – it will take a little longer probably but that is the way it […]

How I Make Half Square Triangles from Jo's Country Junction

Everyone had seen me making triangles as of late.  I’m been busy working on my Holy Toledo quilt and it is LOADED with half-square triangles.

If you are new to quilting, a half-square triangle is what you see in this quilt.  The square is made up of two triangles, typically one light and one dark, and when that happens in the quilting world, that unit is known as a half-square triangle.

Many new quilters don’t like them.  They are sewn on the diagonal, they are easy to get wrong especially for beginners.  There are many methods of making ...

Golfing Monday - I Beaded! from Quilting My Way

 This morning I played a few games. I was really being lazy for awhile. 

I kept forgetting it was Patrick's Birthday Today! UGH

When I finally decided to get moving, I started getting some bread dough going. I knew we were having hamburger tonight, and wanted to make buns. I looked for a couple recipes to see what the ingredients were. I could go from there, so I really didn't do the instructions. I did read them and went from there. 

I was really happy with the way they came out. I wasn't sure if Patrick wanted ...

A vintage Christmas Card for January 2021 from A Legacy of Stitches


This past December, I enjoyed sharing vintage Christmas cards so much that I wanted to share one each month throughout the year. I didn't select one from the box of vintage cards, though. Instead, this is a vintage card that my mother and dad sent to us in the 1970's. I liked it so much that I decoupaged it. Every year I hang it and another one that I received from my Aunt Bell. I'll share that one in the future. 

As I type this, I am looking across the room at our tree in the family ...

Wendy says:

I set up my camera using timer mode to allow me enough time to get on my bike and start spinning. I varied my spin speeds to try to capture both my legs while showing the rotation of the pedals as a blur. I use my road bike on a trainer indoors in the winter. I had fun with sliders in LR and erased a lightswitch and outlet using PS.

Make-A-List Monday - Back On Track! from Confessions of a Fabric Addict

 

Hi, all!

Monday has rolled around once again, and it feels totally different from last week!  Staying focused really helped - I've accomplished a lot and feel better about how things are going.  Of course, it didn't hurt that it was 62 degrees here today!  It won't last, but it was a lovely one-day break from winter weather.

So let's take a look at last week's list...

1.  Finish the list of charities and update the H2H Page on my blog.
Done!  I do hope you'll check it out - we've got a great list ...

Stitching With Boots from Patchwork Times by Judy Laquidara

If I had known then what I know now, I would have gotten a reclining sofa for upstairs. There isn’t enough room in my chair for me, a cat, my stitching piece, the floss card, the chart, the phone and whatever else ends up in this chair. One thing for sure, whatever I’m doing doesn’t...

The post Stitching With Boots appeared first on Patchwork Times by Judy Laquidara.

Quilt Reveal: Kamaria from High Road Quilter

 


When I made the Project Quilting challenge quilt last week, I almost switched from making a light bulb to making a face.I have been admiring Freddy Moran and SewJean Impey's faces and have been wanting to make my own series for a while.

This week's Project Quilting challenge is about fussy cutting fabric. I think I can easily use the challenge to finally make a face.  I fussy cut the eyelashes, the lip and the shirt, but wanted to make it even more obvious with the birds.

I used a quarter yard of fabric as the background ...

OMG January Finish from Urban Quilter

My finished top
 My #onemonthlygoal this month was to finish all 40 blocks for my Lavender Geese Quilt. I not only did that, I completed the top and got the backing pieced. 

I got much of this quilt done because I had an audiobook going that was really fun and I wanted to know what would happen next so I kept sewing because I wanted to keep listening. 

The geese in this quilt are made with a stitch and flip method and I didn't trim out the underneath bits so it is pretty heavy. The backing is a cute ...

Baltimore to Burke from Virtual Quilter

Happy Australia Day!

This is a long term project file in which I am trying to design a quilt in the style of the Baltimore quilts but with an Australian theme, but I keep adding borders so it is more a medallion quilt. The hardest part is finding background fabrics to use in a large country which has green edges but an interior which features many shades of dirt!

I do like the basket of Australian flora as the centre piece.
