The New AccuQuilt BOM – Stellar from Blossom Heart Quilts

It’s time that I finally get to start sharing the new AccuQuilt BOM! Over the next 12 months, we’re making some space-inspired blocks. Now, I’m famous for loving a good star quilt block… And yes, I am definitely a big fan of star quilt blocks, but this time, I decided to step outside the comfort zone and make a space-inspired quilt design that doesn’t just include stars. I KNOW. Look at me grow.

The first block pattern is now out, and it’s a gorgeous yellow sun.

Finishing Ideas For Sampler Quilts from Blossom Heart Quilts

It’s no secret I love a good sampler quilt – something new and different for each block you sew! And with my AccuQuilt Qubes, it makes it even easier to sew up different sampler quilts in 2 different sizes – I made my Patisserie BOM quilt from 8″ blocks AND 6″ blocks, and set them both very differently for the final quilt layout.

You’ve already seen this version (the 8″ blocks) before, with it’s tasty photo shoot…

But now I’m sharing the 6″ block version, plus the finishing instructions for both, over on the AccuQuilt Australia blog here ...

An Alison Glass Rainbow Quilt + Aurora BOM Relaunches from Blossom Heart Quilts

While I was teaching my Aurora BOM sampler quilt last year, I started another version myself using my pile of Alison Glass fabrics. It was a bit of a challenge, trying to make limited fat eighths and fat quarters work, but with a couple of small purchases and a little extra yardage for the scrappy low volume background, I did a Tim Gunn and made it work!

Late last year, Katrina quilted it for me, using a gorgeous pointed swirls design with the occasional 5-pointed star thrown in. It’s her go-to handguided design, and it’s the perfect mix ...

Cleanliness is next to happiness from Texas Quilting

IMG_20180627_202245_305.jpgHi everyone!  I’m finishing up my final semester and I’m ending on a really busy note.  Each of my classes has a paper due typically each week.  These can range from 4 to 20 pages each for 3 separate classes and then there are discussion boards and responses which account for another 2 + pages for each class.  And of course, quizzes and tests! I can see the end of the tunnel but it’s too soon to wave the checkered flag.  In the meantime, I’ve been able to get small amounts of sewing done. My sister gave ...

School is ... from Kelly Ann's Quilting

It's that time of the year ~ kids are getting out of school, and within a few weeks parents will be wondering when the first day of the new school year is because they are tired of hearing "I'm bored." Well at KAQ we are thinking about School with the Schoolhouse die from Accuquilt. The schoolhouses are appliqued ~, and this was so quick and easy to make ~ I prequilted the background,

Patisserie BOM: Block 10 from Blossom Heart Quilts

The latest installment of my AccuQuilt block of the month, Patisserie, is up on the AccuQuilt Australia blog! Month 10’s block is a sweet little diamond shaped dessert.  As always, the fabrics are from the Solids Club provided by Jules at The Creative Retreat, with Kona Ash for the background.

The 6″ Qube version was made a few weeks later, and even then, I didn’t quite twig to something… As I was writing the pattern last month, I realised that there was a much more efficient way to piece this block ...

Vintage Inspired - A Remake Of Winding WaysHere is the final... from Living Water Quilter



Vintage Inspired - A Remake Of Winding Ways

Here is the final installment of the Island Batik April Challenge. My Winding Ways quilt remake includes these modern elements:

  • A diagonally bisection to emphasize the two fabric
  • An overlapping square layout of the winding ways blocks

These elements add a little tension to the curvy design of the traditional quilt block.  The fabrics, Southern Blooms and Neutral Vanilla, were provided by Island Batik.

If you missed the first and second installment, they are worth a look. They have the details of piecing the block using the AccuQuilt die, as well as ...

Scrap Cutting Time from Quilts....etc.

I was just going to cut more tumblers from the scraps  but I found that most of the scraps in the first plastic shoe box that I took out were too small for the tumblers – I did get all cut that could – my box now looks like this – I try to organize […]

English Paper Piecing and Hand Quilting from Quilts....etc.

Just about all my work this year is being done by hand other than a few machine quilted quilts and some machine piecing.  This is by design – I want to slow down this year and not have as many finishes – My “to be quilted” box is overflowing – well maybe not overflowing but […]

Bubbly from From the Strawberry Patch...

It all started, as every quilt does, with a stack of fabric. This quilt was to be a special one for our five year old granddaughter's bed. She knows what she wants. The walls of her room are decorated with painted circles: red, turquoise, two shades of green, yellow and, of course, Lynnleigh's favorite color: orange. My daughter-in-law and I selected the fabrics and the background from swatches

Thoughtful Tuesday. To Do Tuesday. from Faith, Trust and Breast Cancer


Thoughtful Tuesday
As some of you may have noticed, I link up to several inspirational link-ups from which I discover deeply encouraging posts.  Soon I had a collection of these posts and Thoughtful Tuesday was born.  

I was surprised to see this next post in line for today - the timing is perfect.  


It's Inspired by the Abandoned Nest by June of Inspired by June.  June addresses the age old question:  Why don't we do what is good for us?  Why do we do what we know is bad for us?  It reminds me of this:

Patisserie Mini Quilt Finish from Blossom Heart Quilts

Today is the start of AQC (the Australasian Quilt Convention), and I’ll be working there with AccuQuilt! I love working with brands in the quilting industry, and the team at Blessington (who distribute Pfaff and AccuQuilt) are absolutely fantastic to work with. And part of the fun has been sharing a block of the month sampler quilt on the AccuQuilt blog – Patisserie.

borders and corners from Texas Quilting

20180304_182322708230747.jpgArgh! It always helps me to let a quilt hang for a few days so that I can see if I’ve messed anything up. This quilt is 96×96″ so sometimes it’s hard to see the forest for the trees, so I took a picture of it and it was immediately obvious that the dark red fabric had flowers in some sections but not others.  That’s driving me nuts so I’m going to take that off and sew another piece in there. I texted it to a friend and thankfully she also spotted a couple of ...

Philipppians 4:21. To Do Tuesday on a Friday! from Faith, Trust and Breast Cancer

Philippians 4:21
Scripture

Observation
To greet all of God's people...so loving to let them know Paul is thinking of them.  Also, can you imagine the brothers and sisters who are with Paul, perhaps even listening as he may have dictated his letter?

I wonder if many of these had family who heard the greetings?  Greetings filled with love sent via the pages of a letter.  Beautiful.

Application
In this age of technology, we seem to be losing the art of letter writing.  Perhaps I need to pick it up again....

Also, I've noticed that whenever I ...
