How I love Blue and White quilts from Want It, Need It, Quilt It!

Cleaning out my quilt room to herald the new year, I found my beloved blue and white Aurifil BOM 2015 blocks. These were 12 mini quilts I fashioned into a 75″ x 75″ quilt for my nephew and his wife (also a blue lover). I was captivated by the digitally printed fabrics from Hawthorne threads –...

Baltimore Album Quilts Were Pre-Cuts! from Quilt & Textile Collections

Baltimore Album Quilts Were Pre-Cuts!
There have been some interesting comments and discussions about the Triplett Sisters Friendship Quilt as a pre-cut fusible. Since the Poos Collection and our business is known for antique quilts and teaching workshops of historic methods, it was a surprise to some. Many comments have been simply expressing puzzlement, but some of the comments have been more in the disdain or even angry at our betrayal of this wonderful 1856 Huguenot Friendship Quilt. This made me wonder how many people were aware that the beautiful, amazing, and revered Baltimore Album Quilts were available as pre-cuts. Gasp! Yes, it is shocking ...

Working With Wool is Snow Much Fun! from Quilt Doodle Doodles

I have discovered that working with wool is so much fun! As promised I have this month's block to show you all done in wool. I have been collecting wool here and there over the last couple of years. Many of you have heard me whine about my wonky stitches. Well I have learned that you can machine applique wool! Now this is a game changer for me. I don't know why I haven't discovered this sooner! I'm an instant gratification type of girl so machine appliqueing with wool is soooo awesome! Now don't get ...

DESIGN WALL MONDAY - TUESDAY AGAIN! from The Proficient Needle

I seem to have difficulty meeting my deadlines lately!  DH and I were out all day Monday, and I was too tired (or lazy), to get this posted!

I've been working on several projects, but managed to get the first 20 blocks of my latest partly sewn, and pinned for the final stitching.  I still have 12 alternate blocks to stitch, as well as the pieced setting triangle for this "on point" setting.

Note my "leader and ender" square in my machine.  If I have been piecing, there is always one under the presser foot.

I've also been ...

Whoop Whoop and Q1 Finish-A-Long goals from Ramblings of a Fabric Obsessor

I didn't get a lot of sewing this week. I'm not sure why but I was very sleepy all week. After shuffling things around on the shelves earlier this week, I did spend a little time trying to identify the table runner pattern for the kit that seems to be cut out, but I didn't have any success with that. I even asked 3 of the ladies that I used to work with at the shop, but they don't remember

December's Aurifil DOM Reboot Block from Sew Incredibly Crazy

Here is the December's Aurifil
block that was
re-released for 2017.


The first time that they had
this BOM was in 2012.
I loved the cute blocks.
This last one was such a 
pleasure to stitch up.



I still have two blocks that
I have to stitch up 
to be able to put the quilt
all together.


I love her little braids 
flapping in the wind.
I imagine this would be me 
trying to ski after being off the
slopes for too long.

Here are the rest of the blocks 
that I have finished.



You can find the pattern ...

WIP Wednesday and OMG from Ramblings of a Fabric Obsessor

It seems that there are so many challenges going on with the start of the new year. I would like to continue feeling like I am progressing on my projects and making some sort of headway and I want to join all of these challenges, but I am trying to be realistic and trying to not overwhelm myself because that could result in my giving up. If the last couple of days are any indication of my UFOs

I’m making lots of quilt blocks! from The Crafty Quilter

I think I would be happy just making quilt blocks, forever.  I never get bored of doing it.  Each one is a challenge in its own way.  Picking out the fabric is probably the most fun part.  And then figuring out how I want to piece it together.  Generally, I read over the instructions and decide what technique or ruler I want to use to make the various units.  Then I adjust the cutting instructions to make it work for my method.

Maybe that’s why I like block-of-the-month projects so much.  I get to make blocks to my heart ...

Star Spangled BOM with Fort Worth Fabric Studio: Block 1 from Carried Away Quilting

Have you heard about the “Star Spangled” block of the month available at Fort Worth Fabric Studio?  Well here’s your chance to make a lovely patriotic quilt by sewing just two blocks a month, using free illustrated instructions provided by FWFS designer Lindsey Weight! I’m sewing along, and I hope you will too! 

This BOM runs for five months, from January through May. The first block pattern was released on January 9, and I’ve already whipped mine together from red, white and blue (and aqua) fabrics in my stash.


Because all of the blocks are traditionally pieced ...

Secret Garden, block 3...Bloc 3 de Secret Garden... from Accroquilt

And here is my third block for that quilt.  A golden  key is hidden in the bouquet.  As I see this picture, I think I will add some embroideries in each leaf.

Voici mon troisième bloc de la courtepointe mystère Secret Garden d'Esther Aliu.  Une clé dorée est cachée dans le bouquet cette fois-ci.  En regardant la photo, je crois que je vais ajouter quelques broderies pour imiter les veines centrales des feuilles de ce bouquet.
Si les blocs sont terminés si rapidement, c'est que j'avançais lentement sur chacun d'eux.  Il ne restait plus que quelques ...

State Fair Sampler Quilt from I like to Quiltblog

Das Original stammt aus dem frühen 19. Jahrhundert
und besteht aus 56 Blöcke in 6x6" 
Mit der Umrandung ist der Quilt 67x75 " also 170x190 cm.

Das Muster für die Blöcke gibt es HIER, mittlerweile zum Kaufen.
Als ich mit dem Nähen der Blöcke in 2007 begann, wurden die Blöcke
als ein free block of the month angeboten
 und ich kenne einige die mitgenäht haben.
Damals waren wir noch in anderen Plattformen
z.B. bei den Replicas/yahoogroup aktiv.
Das war auch eine schöne Zeit und hiermit schicke ich liebe Grüße an alle die,
die sich noch an die Zeit erinnern

Sew Thankful Sunday, 2018 BOM edition, January from The Crafty Quilter

{I love the idea of “paying it forward”. I think the world would be a better place if we could spread some joy and acknowledgement of good deeds done by others. I try to do that once a month for my Sew Thankful Sunday posts. I highlight some great content that I’ve found on other people’s blogs that I hope will inspire you and reward the originator by bringing traffic to their site. If your blog has been mentioned without your consent, please let me know and I will take you off the current list of featured bloggers ...

Mayflower Tutorial - Delilah Block 10 from Sew Some Sunshine

I've noticed a little bit of a slowdown with the Delilah crowd lately and I can't say I blame anyone...this program continues to be a challenge.  Last month's Sprinkled Delight was full of small curves.  Mayflower, block 10, seems easier but requires y-seams.  Directions for the month state "This block includes a Y seam, so you may find hand piecing easier for each block."  Well, I'm committed to doing this thing completely by machine, so this was another time to figure out a construction method for the block on my own.  I've come up ...

Row Along 2018: Row 1 Simple Patches from Pipersgirls's Weblog

11277 Hamilton White F'17

I am so excited to make our Row Quilt with you all! Hopefully everyone has read the “Getting Ready to Row Along” post last month and has a copy of our book “Quilting Row by Row”. If not, do those two things and than come back. We thought it would be really fun to make this together as a large group in 2018 starting in January. But you can join the Row Along anytime, even a month or so behind. Don’t stress if your behind starting or behind as we go, and while we’re at it, don’t ...

Delilah Quilt - Block 9 from Sew Some Sunshine

Sprinkled Delight...love the name of this block!  For month 9 of the Delilah template of the month program we've moved on to six inch blocks.  The challenge continues with this one.  The next few months of these six inch blocks will be used to fill out the rest of this scrappy quilt.  We need to make nine of these little ones and here are my first four.



We're back to small curves with this one, but having done all the others, these come together pretty quickly.  Cutting bias edges is important here so that you have some ...

Secret Garden, block 2...Bloc 2 de Secret Garden... from Accroquilt

Here is my second Secret Garden's block finished and embroidered.  In that one, the bird found a little golden chain...the secret thing of the block.
Voici mon deuxième bloc pour la courtepointe Secret Garden d'Esther Aliu.  Le petit oiseau a trouvé un bout de chaîne en or, l'objet secret du bloc.


Je termine la broderie du troisième bloc et je vous le montre aussitôt.  On a touché à ma caméra et les couleurs sont changées.  Je cherche comment ramener les bonnes couleurs.  Le fond est crème et non pas jaunâtre comme on le voit ici.

And The Hex Continues... from From the Strawberry Patch...

It's cold outside; too cold to do anything but stay indoors, and as long as I'm inside I might as well be sewing-- right? It's a new year but I am still under the hex; I've completed the latest hexagon block (okay, I did five!) for our block-of-the-month classes at my LQS. My newest blocks are all on the top row of this photo. This month we were to make 3-grid blocks. These end up being 6.5" (
