Lo and Behold from Sew Preeti Quilts

It started here, when Julie mentioned my name on her blog in the same sentence with Scrap Vortex quilts.  It was official.
Hi, I am Preeti and I am a scrap vortex addict. And here is my latest - meet Lo and Behold.

Lo and Behold
Scrappy

Bright

I wanted to quilt a spiral in true scrap vortex spirit.
I found the center and started to quilt - p a i n f u l l y   s l o w l y.
And then I came to the horror of my horrors conclusion - I cannot quilt a tight circle/spiral with ...

Blogger’s Quilt Festival: i mini from Goer

With 16 minutes left to share, I thought I'd throwback to my first finish of 2018, which was included in issue three of Curated Quilts. This 13.5" x 13.5" mini quilt also falls into my goal of working with solids in 2018. And I love the effect of the matchstick quilting on it, despite all these threads I had to bury.

You can see more details on my process in this post. Linking up to Blogger's Quilt Festival.

The post Blogger’s Quilt Festival: i mini appeared first on Sarah Goer Quilts.

Blogger’s Quilt Festival: Pantone Ultra Violet All About Angles from Goer

The thread featured in this post was given to me by Aurifil.

It's the very end of the Fall season of the Blogger's Quilt Festival, hosted by Amy at Amy's Creative Side. My internet came back up with 56 minutes left in the Festival. I figured that was at least enough time to share one of my recent favorites.

I developed my All About Angles Planned Improv technique in June of 2017 and when the Pantone Quilt Challenge came up in the beginning of 2018 I thought it would be a great opportunity to use my technique ...

Glorious Dawn Quilt by Myra Barnes of Busy Hands Quilts! from Busy Hands Quilts

I can finally show you some of the Secret Sauce Sewing that was happening back in May!!  Meet Glorious Dawn, a quilt I designed for Craftsy's new Quilt Along!  Yep, you may have heard me squeal on January 23rd, 2018 at 9:04 a.m. Pacific time when I received notice that Glorious Dawn had been selected!  Since that time many, many hours were spent putting the design on paper in three sizes and three colorways in each size.  The pattern is 23 pages long, friend!  But no worries - it's broken down into easy steps, so it's ...

Sunnyside - A New Quilt Pattern! | Finished or Not Friday Linky Party! from Busy Hands Quilts

Welcome to Finished or Not Friday where you can share your finished {or not} projects!

My Finish is a new quilt pattern!  Meet Sunnyside, an interlocking star design that includes 6 sizes from Baby to King and is Fat Quarter friendly!  This is the Large Lap size.



Selecting fabrics for Sunnyside is simple!  Choose two colors that play well together.  They could be a light and dark in the same hue, or two colors in the same value (as this quilt is), or they could be two colors in different values.  Then pick a background color to make the stars ...

Blogger's Quilt Festival - Fall 2018 Second Entry from Quilting Is More Fun Than Housework

For my second entry into Amy Ellis' Blogger's Quilt Festival, I have a brand new finish to share!



This quilt is called Summertime Blossoms.




I recently revisited a quilt design I had published in Easy Quilts back in 2015.  I called that quilt Nighttime Blossoms.



This quilt uses 8 fat quarters and I knew I wanted to make a new quilt using a bundle of Bonnie and Camille's Miss Kate collection I have been hoarding for years.  Some Kona Lime worked perfectly for the background.




It is a quick and easy block to make and I love that ...

Blogger's Quilt Festival - Fall 2018 First Entry from Quilting Is More Fun Than Housework

I have been participating in the Blogger's Quilt Festival since 2013.  It is an event I look forward to every year.  I love to see all of the beautiful entries that are linked up and discover exciting new blogs to follow.


My first entry this Fall  is a fairly recent finish.  My regular readers know I love scraps.  I also love to use my scraps to play with color and create visual effects.  So when I saw Linda post about a block she was making playing with color value, I began wondering how much contrast you really need to ...

Blogger's Quilt Festival, part 2: Homespun Sampler from With Strings Attached

Here is my second entry in the Blogger's Quilt Festival .




I joined many other quiltmakers in the Moda Blockheads weekly quilt-along.  I collected patterns for a couple of months. Once I took the plunge I tuned in eagerly every Wednesday for the new block. I decided too use homespun plaids, a fabric genre well-represented in my stash.  That way I wouldn't have to buy any more. (Of course Moda's intent was to showcase its designers and their fabric lines.)

The Stashbusters Yahoo group had an  Irish Chain Challenge. That inspired the chain setting.

I had it professionally ...

Blogger's Quilt Festival, part 1: Initial Colors from With Strings Attached

Thanks to Preeti for alerting me to the Blogger's Quilt Festival which is now live!












Here is Initial Colors.  It was my entry in the guild's 2018 challenge . The instructions were to make a two-color quilt out of one block.  The colors and the block name had to be the maker's initials.  My quilt is N.E.B. -- New York Beauty in Eggplant and Blue.

It's one of my favorite quilts.



Blogger has stopped sending comments by email.  Without that feature it's hard to respond personally.

Checking In or Out from ... Cat Patches

We're heading over to Ft. Stevens State Park, and I don't know if I'll be blogging. It always depends on whether there is internet access, but I'll be here if I can. We've been to Ft. Stevens before, but  it was many years ago. Even though we'd lived in Oregon for a long time, we didn't realize the historical significance of Ft. Stevens. There is an actual fort there! Who knew? Apparently a lot of people...just not us.


There's actually a lot to see in this part of Oregon ...

bloggers quilt festival: ellie's quilt from Count it *all* JOY!

Greetings!  It's been a LONG time since I participated in the Blogger's Quilt Festival (hosted by Amy's Creative Side), but I decided this was a new day of the week, and it would be fitting to get back into the swing of things . . . so here goes!

I went back to 2012 for today's offering. It was the year my dear little dolly, Ellie was born. My firstborn's second born.  Her firstborn, Everett, was born to heaven the previous year. I'd made a sweet little owl quilt for him . . . but for Ellie, I couldn't ...

Bloggers Quilt Festival: Written in Thread from ... Cat Patches


It's here! The Bloggers Quilt Festival 2018! It's one of my favorite blogging events of the year. For this festival, I dug into the archives for a quilt I haven't shown in a while. This little quilt is called "Written in Thread." It's a mini at 22 x 28 inches, hand embroidered, machine pieced and quilted.


When I saw this quilt made up at Pendleton Quilt Works, a quilt shop in Pendleton, Oregon, it was love at first sight.


Sadly, the quilt shop is no longer in business, but not for lack of trying. They were ...

Aurora from Sew Preeti Quilts

Meet Aurora. She is my entry to this year's Bloggers Quilt Festival.

Aurora - Finished at 80" by 96"

The story of this quilt follows below.


We work in the same company but in two different offices. Her bridal shower was at 3:00 PM. 

I was busy trying to wrap up work for a meeting on Monday. I got there just after 5:00 PM.
The party was over and people had returned to their cubes.  Some had already left for the weekend. There was still some leftover cake in the office kitchen.
I congratulated the bride-to-be and gave ...

Two Little Finishes from ... Cat Patches

Fortunately, my shoulder pain subsided yesterday, and I was able to finish up most everything I had planned. The planning happened before the pain, and so there was a little more than I wanted to attempt. Still and all, I finished a good bit of it.

First, I finished the 9th of 12 of the Snow Globes blocks. This one is called "Cottage."


This being Sunday, I'll be linking up to


The lighting in my sewing room makes it hard to get very good pictures of these, but here are the nine I have finished so far.


After that ...
