Sunset Isle – Month 8: HSTs from Blossom Heart Quilts

Sunset Isle header

Another month and another row added to our Sunset Isle quilts! There’s been a fun flurry of activity on Instagram on #sunsetislequilt (see below).

Sunset Isle Quilt

Not to mention being able to take this gorgeous photo of three Sunset Isle quilts together while on quilting retreat a couple of weeks ago. From left to right: Kara who’s making a scrappy rainbow with a light denim chambray background; Jane who’s using rainbow Liberty with a scrappy Maze & Vale background; and mine – rainbow Liberty with a grey Essex linen background. Similar but all look so different!

Stars Around the Garden July OMG Finish from Patchwork Sampler Blog

Stars Around the Garden is a big quilt but somehow I managed to finish it this month. The One Monthly Goal challenge really motivates me to finish something every month. There is no penalty if you don’t meet your goal, but it’s so nice when you do!

No wonder this was a UFO for so long. I had no idea how to quilt it. It also had a lot of parts: slab borders, pieced borders, pieced blocks and an applique center. I really wanted to just quilt and edge to edge pantograph, but in the end, decided it ...

Love with a Twist: Nifty Neck Balloon Giraffe from Clever Chameleon

Nifty Neck Giraffe appliqué from the Love with a Twist series by Dione Gardner-Stephen of Clever Chameleon

Shall I tell you a tall story….?

Sure! Once upon a time, there were two slightly naughty, spotted goats who lived with their grandma in a thatched cottage in a small village. Their names were Girome and Giraldeen, and they were non-identical twins. Girome had already grown a little larger than Giraldeen, and a little bit naughtier too.

Girome and Giraldeen, the balloon giraffes

One day Girome said to Giraldeen, “I spy a new lolly jar! Let’s raid it”. And Giraldeen replied “I like your thinking, but we’re banned from climbing the shelves. Remember?”

“Ahhh…..” said Girome, “But Nan didn’t ban us from ...

Stellar BOM – Block 10 from Blossom Heart Quilts

Whirling and twirling, this quilt block is a fun one using the parallelogram die from the AccuQuilt QUBE set. These ones always trick me at first with how to orient them when piecing the half-square triangle pieces to the ends, but thankfully I didn’t need to pull out the seam ripper on this one.

By Wisdom... from From the Strawberry Patch...

... a House is Built. Through perseverance a quilt is finished! I've been working on this one for twenty years, off and on (more off than on!). Last evening I finished putting in that last quilting stitch; so, it isn't truly quite finished yet, it still needs binding, but having this one off the frame sure feels good! The finished quilt, assembled as shown, measures 60" X 63". As soon as I got

July OMG Stars Around the Garden from Patchwork Sampler Blog

Stars Around the Garden is another UFO that has aged in the bin for quite awhile. It was a block of the month from the Patchwork Sampler brick and mortar shop. I like the quilt but like so many others, never got around to quilting it. I’m never sure how to quilt the tops that have both piecing and applique. This quilt really isn’t worth custom quilting but I don’t like to go over applique with edge to edge designs. I watched some quilting videos and am now ready to jump in and quilt! Done is better ...

A Reminder on Creativity from Jacquelynne Steves

Whew!  I have to admit, things have been very hectic for me lately.  We are preparing to open our doors for The Art of Home Club, and I've been doing quite a bit of "prep" work for that.  I've been writing patterns for the Club, and working on getting the colors "just right" for some of our pre-printed panels for Happy Little Things Block of the Month. And then there is the shipping - probably the least favorite part of my job, but is something that I haven't been able to delegate to others quite yet.  My husband ...

Love with a Twist: Jolly Jumper from Clever Chameleon

Jolly Jumper balloon frog appliqué pattern by Dione Gardner-Stephen at Clever Chameleon

No more Frogs after this for a while, I promise

Jolly Jumper balloon frog appliqué pattern by Dione Gardner-Stephen at Clever Chameleon

But seriously, can you resist this face?! This adorably agile amphibian is the second option for Block 4 of our Love with a Twist appliqué series. Which puts him in direct competition with the Duck of Attitude from June 21.

Can you choose? Or do you have to make two throw quilts to fit them both in? Of course you can just opt to make the big twin size one and have them play together. </p>
