Divide and Conquer progress from Curlicue Creations

Do you remember my small Divide and Conquer bag I made for the Island Batik ByAnnie.com challenge?  I'm sure I mentioned that I'm also making this in the large size.  It had to go on the back burner for a while so I could finish up a few other projects, but I had some time to work on it one day this week.

Disclaimer:  The products used to make this project were given to me by Island Batik and industry partners.

This is one of the side strips for the bag.  You can see the the beautiful ...

Storm at Sea Island Batik Blog Hop from Curlicue Creations

Hello!  Welcome to my day on the Island Batik Ambassador Storm at Sea blog hop.  This is my Storm at Sea quilt, made with the new Petal Pathway fabric collection by Kathy Engle.  My quilt is still a top, as it took a lot longer to piece together than I had planned.  I wasn't even sure I liked it until I took this photo.  Sometimes it's hard to see how a quilt is coming out while you're working on it up close.

Disclosure:  The products used to make this project were generously provided by Island Batik, Aurifil ...

Hexagon Project Update from Curlicue Creations

This project has come a long way since my last update!  I'll bet you can see what it is now.  It's nearing the finish of the hexie piecing.  I may have to stop and make a few more black hexagons.  I'm almost out of them.  It's exciting to see it coming together.

Cross River Gorilla ~ Island Batik and Aurifil Challenge from Curlicue Creations

Meet the Cross River Gorilla, an Endangered Species challenge quilt made with Island Batik Fabric and Aurifil Thread.  

Note:  Items used to make this project were generously supplied by Island Batik, Aurifil Thread, Hobbs Batting, and Schmetz Needles.

This month the Island Batik Ambassadors were each assigned an endangered species to coordinate with the new Aurifil thread sets shown above.  I received the Cross River Gorilla with three beautiful shades of purple, a light, a medium, and a dark.  I did some research on the Cross River Gorilla and learned a few things about them.

1.  Sadly, they are critically ...

Violet Spice Quilt and Pattern from Curlicue Creations

I have a new pattern to introduce to you today:  Violet Spice.

This pattern features the Violet Spice fusible applique block.  (I love this block!)

It's paired with a pieced crossing block.

And finished with a pretty pieced border.

This quilt features Island Batik's new Peacock Plumes fabric collection, available in your local quilt shops now.

I also used Hobbs batting, Aurifil thread, and Schmetz needles to get this look.


Quilt backing in this gorgeous Island Batik fabric.  

Binding in blue.

This quilt would be charming as a baby gift, couch throw, or wall decor.

Divide and Conquer ByAnnie Bag Challenge from Curlicue Creations

Pshew!  Here I am posting about my byAnnie bag on the last day of September.  I just barely finished this morning.  I've had so many things pulling me away from sewing time in the last month.  I'm actually making two bags, this is the smaller size.  The large sized bag is about 3/4 of the way done at this time.  I'll show it on another post when it's complete.

Disclosure:  The products used to make this bag were given to me by Island Batik, ByAnnie.com, Aurifil Thread, and Schmetz Needles.

Gnomes All Around Quilt from Curlicue Creations

Let me introduce you to these four little guys:  Gnomes All Around.

This quilt and pattern is featured in the new Annie's Quilting book, Quilted Gnomes for your Home.  If you love Gnomes, this book is for you.  There is a variety of projects and each one is cuter than the last.  Most of them look quick to make, too.  I have an extra copy of this book to give away at the end of this post for one lucky reader.

I designed and made four of the Gnome blocks for my quilt.  The blocks are partly paper pieced ...

Try a tool / Δοκίμασε ένα εργαλείο from Mania for quilts

I am copying from Island Batik relative document: “Use the Studio 180 Design tool you received in your second Ambassador box to make a quilt of any size! The tool you received is designed to make a specific unit in many different sizes, so you can work with small units to make a miniature or large units to make a large quilt. The choice is yours.

September challenge: It’s In The Bag! / Πρόκληση Σεπτεμβρίου: Είναι μέσα στην τσάντα! from Mania for Quilts

It was a great pleasure to see that there was the making of a bag on this semester’s schedule. We love a lot the bag making in Greece. And I love especially Annie’s Unrein patterns. When I was asked about the pattern I wanted to make, I chose this bag that actually is not a bag, but a whole suitcase. I had made this bag in the past several times, but I wanted to see the most of the materials that Annie has in her shop. Therefore I asked for this pattern, that proved to be very wise ...
