Allium Bag :: Progress from Alamosa Quilter

Well that didn't take very long! I have finished the embroidery on the front of my Allium bag and now I'm ready to put it together.

I love the before and after embroidery on these projects!

There is some velcro that goes inside this bag at the bottom to hold the zipper pouches in place. I've ordered it but at the time of writing this it isn't here. I haven't read through the assembly instructions yet so I don't know how far I can get with the bag assembly before I need to add ...

Roll the Dice – Pink or Blue? from Romany Quilting

In the weekend I did an unscientific experiment with my dice.  As you know, I like to give my pink dice a shake, rattle and roll on the carpet to determine which UFO I will be working on for the current week.  But I’ve long suspected that not all numbers are coming up regularly – in fact, I don’t remember number 6 being selected for many months.  So with Robin’s help as scribe, I rolled my pink dice, just as I usually do, ten times.  Interesting enough, two numbers did not get selected at all.  Perhaps that is ...

Quilted Border Beauties 7 from Virtual Quilter

Quilted Border Beauties 7

Love it.

Particularly love that shape in the centre … or rather, around the centre!

It happened while I was concentrating on creating a border design from pieced blocks.

PS Who let the cat in?

Orphan Block Quilt – – – Finally Finished from a daily dose of fiber

I certainly do not win awards for finishing projects in a timely fashion! After starting to quilt The Orphan Block Mash Up quilt, I quickly lost interest and it sat under my Sweet Sixteen machine for months. Languishing… it was started over a year ago. Fast forward to the present : I have a growing stack of quilt tops waiting to be quilted, so I have spent the last two weeks getting it done.

I am not thrilled with it. My quilting is not great so I will not be showing you a close-up. But as I have told students in ...

Retro Car Thread Painting in a few steps from A Beautiful Day - O Zi Frumoasa

I dream about a quilt with retro cars for a while. Maybe a bed quilt, maybe a wall quilt. I have not yet decided which one to make. I love also appliqué. I started a few projects having raw edge appliqué as main quilting technique in order to practice the ways of securing the edges of the appliqued pieces. Today I share one of them, Thread Painting. I drew an old BMW because is my

Bigfoot Sighting In a Beer Mug Rug from Pink Doxies

Bigfoot Is Real!

One thing I would never have put to my name is a Bigfoot quilt, I thought, but I had a passionate request from someone close to me for a king size quilt with Bigfoot on it. This was a good time for me to practice how to talk someone/something down to size, and we continued until I knew it was manageable during this terribly busy season. 

We started with the image of the iconic hairy beast seen so often from his profile on every possible surface. I started with a basic line drawing, tweaked it to ...

My First Custom Applique Template Experience from The Quilted Magnolia

I took a quilt commission a few months ago to do a queen-size applique quilt and I’m trying a few new things while creating it. The design I came up with involves a lot of yin-yangs in various...

Crazy Quilts at the Virginia Quilt Museum from Telling Stories Through the Needle's Eye

Last week, Kara and I (Teri) decided that we needed to go on one last road trip before her departure to Germany. It will surely not be our last, but we will doubtfully get much travel in before she leaves the country. Our destination was Harrisonburg, Virginia. I had told her how much I enjoyed my visit to the Virginia Quilt Museum (VQM) in the fall, and we wanted to see Debby Cooney's exhibit on appliqué (more to come on that next week), so that seemed like a good place to start. We planned to check out a few ...

Take the Roundabout Sew Along, will you join me? from Pat Sloan's Blog

Article continues below these Amazon Goodies

When I design quilt patterns I put my heart and soul into the design. For my fabric line Sunday Drive, I designed 'Take the Roundabout' in my signature multiple size block format. You've been doing my solstice, so you have an idea of how much fun it is do multi size blocks! 

Pat Sloan Take the Roundabout sew along button

When I designed this quilt I wanted to add some of the things that we see on our Sunday drive, and one of those is a roundabout! They seem to be coming back in style for traffic control, we find them ...

Allium Bag :: A Start from Alamosa Quilter

I'm starting a new project. I'm making an Allium bag for all of my Sue Spargo threads. Well ... as much of my Sue Spargo thread as I can fit in the bag.

So far I have the front of the bag pieced and the appliques sewn down. I need to add the embroidery stitches before I can complete the bag.

The bag holds three specially designed thread pouches. I have the pouches but didn't get a photo of them yet.

A MIni for a Friend from Stitchin at Home

Sometimes I just feel like creating, and that is exactly what I did with this piece. As soon as I took this picture I knew I wanted to do something with it.

inspiration photo from my flower beds the flowers are hyacinths

The background I used is a piece of Northcott fabric, perfect for the earth. I used my favourite applique method 'Crafted Applique'. I rough cut the pieces I needed then touched them up with Inktense pencils, NeoColor Crayons and Sharpies. 

the bottom piece is the stone on the right of the finished piece, the top piece is the ...

Round Robin Round 1 from Heart Desire Creations

Round Robin (Medium)

Four of us decided to do a Round Robin this year. We each made a center block of our choice, gathered the fabrics we wanted to be part of the quilt and then pass it on to the next person who then adds a row of their own design around the block. Three things that I love about this Round Robin: #1- The other 3 quilters in this group have amazing talent (a bit intimidating actually). #2 – There are no deadlines; it is a very loose schedule. #3 – Each of us will only have to do three rounds. I would ...

Patched and Pieced 29 from Virtual Quilter


Patched and Pieced 29

Something not quite as feminine as the last few days … but still with some floral appliques on there.

I like it like that.
