Moccasin Quilt Kits featured at Missouri Star Quilt Co. from Gen X Quilters


Moccasin Sampler Kits are being featured on the front page slideshow banner over at Missouri Star Quilt Co.  If you've been thinking about joining in the fun for this year's BOM, take a look at these kits.

The kit includes all the fabric to make the quilt top, binding yardage and all 12 printed patterns in the Moccasin set.  The fabrics in the kit are the same RJR Cotton Supreme Solids I used to make my sample.  If you've never worked with RJR Solids before, you should give it a try.  They were a dream to piece ...

WIP Wednesday! from Marie's Creative Space

Not a lot to show this week as I am working on my secret Creative Conglomeration piece which is due March 31st and finishing up my Mom's birthday present.  
Secrets.... Secrets...

Here are a couple of blocks that I made up for the NHMQG's March meeting.  The BOM was Emerald Coast Modern Quilt Guild’s Circle of Friends Block February 2014.  
You can find the tutorial here:


 I played with my new love - low volume then also made one to go with the set I have worked on so far. This ...

Block of the Month update from Pointless Quilter

I know - two posts in one weekend after a month of silence.  What can I say, when it rains it pours.

I finished all my block/pillow of the months today.  Between cleaning house (my art girls are coming on Tuesday so good inspiration to clean house) I was able to finish these.  First, my Fat Quarter Shop Designer Mystery Block of the Month (#10).

 And then Pat Sloan's Vacation Time Block of  the Month mystery.
 Fat Quarter Shops Snapshots mystery.
 And Shabby Fabrics Pillow of the month.  Made my first rouched flowers on this one.

And I got ...

Classic Meets Modern quilt finish and some wip’s from The Crafty Quilter

I love it when I finish a substantial-sized quilt.  For me, that’s anything bigger than a lap quilt.  I just finished putting the binding on my “Classic Meets Modern” quilt which was a block of the month from last year hosted by Sew at Home Mummy.  Erin guided us each month with a traditional quilt block that she gave a modern twist to.

classic modern finish 2 copy

I used fabric from my stash in a rainbow theme.  The final quilt setting was up to us.  I chose a traditional 3 x 4 setting with plain sashing.  I decided to make the borders with ...

Finished Quilt Top from Modern Sunbonnet Sue

My previous post displayed my National Quilting Association Block of the Month quilt top with sashing added. I have since added the inside and outside borders. I cut the black outside borders on the straight grain of the fabric. I don’t usually do this, but had adequate fabric to make the borders without seams. Having […]

50,000 Quilters! from Quilting by the River

How many quilters do you think are are on the internet???? I receive Jinny Beyer's newsletter every week and it was recently mentioned that over 50,000 people have signed up for her free class on Craftsy! Doesn't that sound unbelievable! Have you signed up for it? Her website is a great one to visit; you can see all of her beautiful fabrics and she also has free patterns. I remember buying one of her books on design many, many years ago.

Early in January I mentioned in a post that Jinny Beyer was teaching a free BOM ...

Joy Finished from Inky Threads

This has been a long going BOM for me. It actually ended up being a Block of the Year for awhile there. But, it finally got done. And it's sold already.


The pattern for this is at Stitchin' Heaven. I also sold these two, both Bonnie Hunter patterns.



Now on to my version of Bonnie's Orca Bay mystery.

Moccasin Block of the Month Club - March from Gen X Quilters

Is it seriously March?  Because you wouldn't know it from the negative temps and wind chills we are still having here in Ohio.  Grrr.  If it could just hit 32, it'd feel downright balmy! March brings us the next block pattern in the Moccasin Block of the Month Club.

Do you want the good news or the bad news first?  :)  The good news is that this month we are back to basics.  This month's blocks are comprised only of squares and half-square triangles (HSTs).  The bad news, you ask?  It's a bit of homework this month ...

Rearranging Quilt Blocks from Modern Sunbonnet Sue

Have you planned a layout for a sampler quilt and had difficulty keeping the blocks properly arranged while sewing them together? Or, have you changed your layout and realized later that your rearrangement placed identical blocks next to each other? Well, that’s where I am with my NQA BOM quilt. I initially completed ten blocks, […]

March's Block from Quilt Doodle Doodles...


This month's block is a sewing machine, but not just any sewing machine, but the sewing machine from my childhood. It was quite a workhorse and made many dresses for my sisters and I when we were growing up. It's the machine I first learned on when I was a teen. Then mom got a new machine, but this one wasn't forgotten, it was the sewing machine mom started quilting on when we would first start sewing quilts together. We made several 'Trip Around the World' quilts together when we first started quilting in the 80's ...

Block of the Month Updates from Pointless Quilter

It's that time of the month to finish all my block of the months.  The first one I worked on this month was the Fat Quarter Shop Designer mystery.

 Then our guild has their monthly block of the month.  Since this was an easy block I thought I might as well.
Pat Sloan's 2015 Vacation Time Mystery.  

 Fat Quarter Shops Snapshot Block of the Month
 And Shabby Fabrics Pillow of the Month club pillow.

Quilting and piecing is such great therapy.  It makes me happy.

Thanks for looking.

Moccasin BOM Color Inspirations from Gen X Quilters

It's almost the end of February.  A quick month... and although this month's block was quite a challenge, thankfully, there was only one block for the short month.  Did you try it?  Was it new for you?  I'm proud of you!  Part of this BOM is skill-building.  I hope to get you to try a few things you might not otherwise attempt.  Curves are definitely something that take some practice to learn.  Remember you can always substitute another block if it's not sitting right with you.

Here are some of your blocks:

Sew Sweet Simplicity Setting Option from Wedding Dress Blue

The final installment of the Sew Sweet Simplicity Block of the Month comes out today.  As a fortunate pattern tester, I had a  month to think about this ahead of time and had a lot of fun designing a setting plan that used the 12 blocks I created so far (2 each of the six Jacquelynne designed).

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

By creating alternate blocks and setting the whole thing on point, the finished top is 50″ x 67″, a large throw/couch quilt. If you added a border or two, it would be a twin size quilt.  Not too bad for 12 fancy ...
