Snow Much Fun in Wool, April's Block from Quilt Doodle Doodles

  
I have been enjoying working with wool for my second version of this year's BOM. I've been having Snow Much Fun! This month's block is an adorable snowman with his camper. Since it's a winter quilt I had to decorate the camper with a Christmas wreath and Christmas lights. I have been machine stitching my wool applique with Lana wool from Aurifil. I have loved the combo of the wool with the Primo Plaids from Marcus Fabrics. It's going to be such a cozy quilt. It'll be a fun quilt to put out next ...

Star Spangled BOM with Fort Worth Fabric Studio: Corner Stars from Carried Away Quilting


Hello quilting friends!  I’m popping in today to share my progress on the “Star Spangled” block of the month hosted by Fort Worth Fabric Studio and designer Lindsey Weight. Last night I made the darling corner star blocks for this patriotic quilt, and I love how they came out.   


Lindsey’s instructions called for two different pairs of red and blue corner star blocks, and hers are so pretty. But I got it into my head that I wanted to make mine tonal, red-on-red. After I made the first one, I liked it so well that I made the ...

Monthly Goal - April from Patterns by Jen

My monthly goal for April will be the same as it was for Feb and March.




Even though you may have noticed I kind of went dark (Too many NCIS episodes? I think not.) in the blogging world during March, I'm not giving up on my monthly goal.


Monthly Goal




1) Finish the block from the BOM class in my LQS




1.5) Finish a block from a past BOM class

I'm going to add a new monthly goal for the rest of the year:




2) Finish one or more blocks that will go to the local group ...

Dear Daughter BOM from Humble Quilts

 Look at this cool old quilt! The reds are trashed but check out that amazing blue sashing! I think it can be called double blue or prussian blue. Love these blocks with the birds.  It has signatures throughout with lovely sentiments like this:
He who sows courtesy, reaps friendship, And he who plants kindness, gathers love.
Gay has written those down so they can be used for those who are reproducing this quilt.
Gay is so generous and she loves to share her antique quilts with us! Right now you can get blocks 1-8 free on her website. I am ...

April's Block Snow Much Fun! from Quilt Doodle Doodles

Happy April! Happy Easter! and Happy April Fool's day! So much going on today! I hope that where ever you are from, I hope it's a beautiful spring day! Here in Minnesota it's your typical Easter day, a bit on the cold side, snow on the ground that hasn't melted yet and mud here and there... I'm already looking forward to May.  It's hard to talk about winter and snuggly warm quilts with the appearance of Easter baskets and chocolate bunnies. But, I will try and do my best... This month's block is ...

My Halo Medallion from Pointless Quilter

This was the The Quilt Show's Block of the Month for 2017.  It was designed by Sue Garman who was one of my favorite quilters of all times  Our guild was fortunate enough to have her as a speaker and teacher before she passed away.  (Haven't finished the quilt from that class yet-but it's on my lit to finish this year too.)   This quilt is pretty much all paper pieced.  And because I spend so much time piecing it I felt the quilting deserved as much time. 

Here are some close ups.  I got to use my ...

Picnic Quilt (previously known as BOM HST) from Wendy's Quilts and More

Last week I started hand quilting my Picnic Quilt.  I've decided to call it a Picnic Quilt because it reminds me of mum's quilt that we sat on at picnics when I was growing up in the 1970's.

Mum made most of our clothes, and many of the scraps were included in the picnic quilt. I remember sitting on that quilt and identifying all the fabrics I liked in the quilt.

It's grown bigger than this now

My quilt is made from Half Square Triangle blocks that I won at Capital Quilters Block of the Month ...

Surviving so far! from Ramblings of a Fabric Obsessor

It's been just over 3 weeks since my brother and his dog moved in with me..... 168 days, it seems like! There has only been one instance of blood drawn between the dogs. Lula was excited to have a new friend... Stewie was excited to ignore all things smaller than him. Things are moving along with the renovation... I think. Cabinets have been ordered, a new contractor acquired, counter tops

Star Spangled BOM with Fort Worth Fabric Studio: Flying Geese from Carried Away Quilting


This weekend I finally got my sewing self in gear and made my flying geese units for the “Star Spangled” block of the month hosted by Fort Worth Fabric Studio. Designer Lindsey Weight posted the free instructions on March 13, but . . . well . . . Taunja got a little sidetracked! Luckily, the 48 over-sized flying geese were a snap to stitch together!




If you've been following along, you know that I’ve been sewing from my stash, using a combination of fabrics from Fig Tree & Company as well as Bonnie & Camille (both for Moda). I've really enjoyed the creative process of ...

Delilah Quilt: Pinwheels and more... from Sew Some Sunshine

I'm continuing on my Delilah Quilt journey with the last of the block piecing.  So far we've had twelve months of blocks with twelve, nine, and six inch finished sizes.  The final month included directions for piecing 31 pinwheels and cutting 34 squares to finish at three inches.  So off to work I went.  Here's where I started.

Delilah Pinwheel

Then I moved on to these.

And a few more.

At this point, I realized that 31 pinwheels are a lot of the same thing.  So with the last set, I decided to put them together into a variation ...

"In the Garden"—Robin and Forsythia from Telling Stories Through the Needle's Eye

Spring is on it's way! Teri and I (Kara) saw evidence when we were down in Williamsburg, Virginia, at the Appliqué Academy a couple of weeks ago. The daffodils and forsythia were displaying their brilliant yellow for all to see, and the trees were just starting to have that faint, rosy cast as their buds start to swell. We even saw multiple bluebirds during our visit! With so many signs of spring, how appropriate is this month's In the Garden block, featuring two classic harbingers of spring; the robin and forsythia?

The robin and branch are wool and ...

Snow Much Fun in Wool from Quilt Doodle Doodles


  I have been enjoying working with wool for my second version of this year's BOM. I've been having Snow Much Fun! I ran a little behind last month with my postings... so this month I will be showing you last month's block and this month's block done in the wool. Both turned out so darn cute.  I have been machine stitching my wool applique with Lana wool from Aurifil. I googled it to locate a source since I didn't want to drive all over the Twin Cities to locate some. (It's winter, I'm ...

April Charity BOM from Jan's Quilts



These are my versions of the Temecula Valley MQG block of the month.  This 12" Tulip Block is very easy to make, you can find the tutorial by following this link.  I cut the pieces on Friday and chain pieced all four blocks on Saturday.  They're put together log-cabin-syle.  As usual, I'll donate two and keep two.  I really love the green blocks and think I'll keep those.

May your bobbins always be full,

Festival of Stars :: A Finish from Alamosa Quilter

This was a block of month my shop did last year. I have a few kits left so I decided to finish the top before hanging it back up in the shop in hopes that the rest of the kits will sell.


I really enjoyed making this one. It finishes at 78" by 83.5". The quilting was not done by me. In my area there are several long arm quilters and we hand out business cards for three of them in my shop when folks ask. I had never had anything quilted by this lady so I wanted to ...
