LIMQG Inspiration Board Swap from Sew Some Sunshine

At the November Long Island Modern Quilt Guild meeting we worked on creating inspiration boards that highlight a particular color scheme.  We shared our boards and our inspiration at the December meeting.  We then each picked a secret partner, to make any project for, to exchange with at the January meeting.  

This was the inspiration board that Kim @lelandavestudios created.  Such a pretty board!

I needed to decide what to make that was pink, green, orange, floral and feminine, AND that would live up to this gorgeous inspiration board.  I started with some inspiration from Victoria Findlay Wolfe.  She has ...

Comet I | Art with Fabric Blog Hop from Georgia Girl Quilts

Hello & welcome to my stop on the Art with Fabric blog hop, hosted by Alida from Tweety Loves Quilting. I had so much fun last time, I decided to participate once again!

This time around I chose Comet I; by Sam Gilliam, a Color Field Painter born in Tupelo, MS. You can learn more about Mr. Gilliam here.

For my quilt, I opted to use only the diamond, or rhombus, shape of Sam Gilliam's comet and omit the tails. I wish I could tell you I have some great artistic reasoning; but the truth is that I just didn ...

Getting those zippers right! from Sew Some Sunshine

I've been making pouches again...not a bad way to spend time on the weekend.  Nothing fancy, but it was good zipper practice.  I was determined to get the corners right on these, and I made a lot of progress on that front.

So one thing I've learned is to cut your fabric one inch bigger than the zipper length and sew with a 3/8 inch seam.  This seems unnatural for us quilters, but this gives you 1/8 inch of room between the seam and the zipper ends. If you do it this way you don ...

Scrappy Trip Progress and Tips from Sew Some Sunshine

Summer's gone by so quickly!  I've been working on my scrappy trip quilt with mostly Anna Maria Horner fabrics.  This is part of my Quarter 3 list for the 2016 Finish-A-Long.  I have a feeling I won't make the completion deadline for Q3, but that's okay, I'll just add it to Q4.

Making this has been a learning experience.  Since there isn't a true pattern, there are a lot of decisions to be made that you might not think of if you just follow a basic block tutorial.  I was inspired by this quilt ...

Kay's Irish Chain Quilt from Random Thoughts... do or "di"

Last week we took Martha Stewart on her first road trip. We didn't go far, just a few hours drive north to  Ventura, California, where we visited with old friends. I have been friends with Steve since we were three and 9 years old. The sign I made for his getaway car for his 1969 wedding to Cheryl still hangs in his garage. It was so nice to talk with old friends and also breathe in some cooler, beach air. I wish I would have remembered to take a photo of the 4 of us. 

Martha enjoyed running on ...

2016 Finish-A-Long Quarter 3 from Sew Some Sunshine

Quarter 2 of the Finish-A-Long was a success with five out of seven projects finished.  You can read about the five projects here.  Now onto Quarter 3,  here's my current list of hopefuls!

First up is an (mostly) Anna Maria Horner scrappy trip around the world quilt.  I've got all the strips cut and seven out of twenty-four blocks completed.  It takes a good bit of time to make one of these blocks, so I work on it here and there.

Next is a new quilt that uses a fun pattern from Quilt Basket, a local quilt shop ...
