A Pillow Sham for Debbie from Dizzy Quilts

A few weeks ago, my very good friend Debbie asked me if I'd be able to make her a pillow sham inspired by a photo she had of Eddy Van Halen's guitar (she's a huge VH fan). Her birthday was coming up at the time (it has now just passed), so I started planning the make hoping to have it finished by then.

Here is the picture she sent me:


And here is the pillow sham I made for her:


I started with about half a yard of Kona Cardinal and used the slash and insert method ...

The Ultimate Palate Cleanser: A 1-Hour Basket from Dizzy Quilts

This past week was a little crazy at work and after finishing a couple of lap sized quilts and a few garments, I needed a simple and quick sew. Whenever that happens, I almost always make a zipper pouch, but I remembered that my daughter-in-law recently requested a basket for my grand-daughter's room so I pulled out my Amy Butler fat quarters, pulled up the 1-Hour Basket Tutorial I saved years ago (from Kelby Sews) and got sewing!


I used the same fabric for the exterior and lining but didn't have enough to make the handles so I ...

A Second Closet Core Pouf from Dizzy Quilts

Making myself another Closet Core Pouf had been on my list of sewing goals for this year, but I had no idea what fabrics to use. I ordered red fabric about a month ago to make new curtains and decided that fabric would be perfect to make the pouf.




The other red fabric (the one with the tiny white stars) is leftover from a quilt back. I didn't take a picture of the bottom of the pouf, but it's another fabric leftover from a quilt back. 

I didn't add piping around the top and bottom circles like ...

How to Sew a Quilted Puffy Scarf- DIY Sewing Tutorial from Art Gallery Fabrics-The Creative Blog

Hello Makers, 

Are you staying warm? With Minnesota reaching well into the negative degrees Fahrenheit, having to go outside is chilling to the bone. Anytime it's winter, I always take the opportunity to use Art Gallery Fabrics substrates, because they are just the best to sew with. While I was looking through my fabric stash, I saw these lovely rayon prints in “Manhattan’s Foliage” by Bari J., “Honey”, and “Soleil Stripes” that I had to use! I was inspired by all the puffy accessories being created that I thought it would be a great idea to create my ...

The Closet Case Pouf from Dizzy Quilts

I think I may have solved part of my scrap problem! 


I subscribe to Closet Case Patterns' newsletter and love their garment patterns (I made the Cielo top a couple of times as well as their Pietra pants). Well, if you're a newsletter subscriber, you get access to a fantastic free pattern for a pouf you stuff with your fabric scraps... how cool is that?!


I used quilting cotton to make the pouf, but the instructions recommend interfacing the fabric if you aren't using something really sturdy such as canvas or leather. I had a yard of the ...

New Placemats! from Dizzy Quilts

At the end of January, Yvonne who blogs at Quilting Jetgirl, published a tutorial for placemats. I love Yvonne's transparency patterns and these placemats looked so striking, I just had to add these to my To Make list.


At first, I was going to use up scraps for these (you know I've been on a crusade to use up all the scraps!) but then I discovered a stack of Karen Lewis fat quarters in my stash so went with those. Also, I have grand plans to re-decorate the dining room this Spring and black, grey and white are ...

Sewing a ‘pot of gold’ thread catcher from Quilt Social

To say I’ve been feeling lucky this week is an understatement! Having the PFAFF performance icon in my sewing room is a real treat.

I told you there was more and today I’m sharing what a lucky quilter would find at the end of a rainbow pincushion – a lucky thread catcher!

I used a fun stitch on the PFAFF performance icon and added another sequence, combined with black fabric to resemble the pot and yellow fabric to resemble gold to make my ...

Finishing the Lucky 2B a Quilter pincushion from Quilt Social

Everybody needs a little luck! In yesterday’s post I started to make a rainbow pincushion using the PFAFF performance icon. The body came together quickly and I decorated it with several of the built in animal stitches. Today’s post will add a few more fun details using the PFAFF performance icon before completing the pincushion.

Sequence Creator

I wanted to add words to the rainbow pincushion and decided to stitch out a little label. The performance icon has the Sequence program that is accessed by pressing the SEQUENCE CREATOR at the bottom of the Multi-touch ...

It’s time to put some of the many features to work on the PFAFF performance icon. In yesterday’s post, I made a list of features to convince you to take this big machine with you on sew days. Today I’m making a rainbow pincushion. Why? Because I feel lucky to be using this machine </p>

Handmade Gifts from Dizzy Quilts

I didn't make many gifts this year - I was a little short on time unfortunately, but I did manage to get small things done.

First was a secret Santa gift for the office exchange. The person I was matched with really likes pink, candles and tea. So I decided to buy her a scented candle, a tea cup and I made a pink one-hour basket to put them in!


I used fat quarters I had in my stash and some By Annie's Soft & Stable to give the basket some structure and make sure it wouldn't collapse with ...

A coin purse for my sister from Dizzy Quilts

A little while ago, my sister asked me if I could make a coin purse for her. I had to travel to Denver for work last week so didn't have a whole lot of time to sew, but a coin purse is really quick and easy so I decided to get it done!



A simple Google search resulted in me finding this tutorial. I then found some Rifle Paper Co scraps and the perfectly matching zipper right there in my stash! This pattern is perfect for some gorgeous prints because except for the zipper on the front, the design ...

I Love Functional Accessories from Quilts + Color

This functional accessory was made necessary when I had to have somewhere to put washcloths by the shower.
Both the barrel table and the basket arrived here today. We already had found the washcloths and they were already rolled to put in the basket.

I was not disappointed about each item and the way they worked in our space.
