Block of the Month Quilt with Island Batik from Felicia's World

Guess what I have been working on for the last few months?  …I am very proud I haven’t said a peep until now.

I am designing a Block of the Month program in collaboration with Island Batik!

I am calling this quilt Tiputini because of all the gorgeous butterflies that inspired me so when we were at the Tiputini Biodiversity Research Station in Ecuador last summer.

quiltThe project (drawing, designing, selecting fabric and thread, sewing) has been in the works since around Christmas time, and I am FINALLY done with the quilt top.

The quilt features 12 elegant butterflies ...

This and That from Crow Calling Woman


Month #1 April

Went to the quilting shop called Petals and Patches Saturday for the first in a 13 month stretch BOM. My friend and I, Beckie, did them together over at her place while I did my laundry. She was so giddy about it and I helped her with tips and tricks I've learned along the way. It was quite fun to do! While I was there at the P&P, I bought a new seam ripper that has a rubber nub on the end for grabbing and removing those pesky threads after ripping out a seam. It ...

Block of the Month Updates and a 10 year project - done! from Pointless Quilter

I used to cross stitch a lot.  That was before I started quilting.  So this project started about the time I started quilting.  I wish I would have recorded the start date of this.  I know that I used to work on it only on Tuesday nights when the Material Girls would meet at Pam's.  After we stopped meeting on Tuesdays, I took it to work and swore I'd work on it on my lunch hours.  And I did.
After consulting with a friend, I decided to use the left over linen fabric it was counted cross stitched ...

A sigh of relief & a sneak peak from The Crafty Quilter

A weight has been lifted from my shoulders.  I have been working diligently for the last few weeks to prepare for the next four month’s worth of video taping for The Quilt Show’s block of the month, A-Z for Ewe and Me.  I’ve been practicing in front of the mirror, making note cards, stitching 13 blocks with “step outs” (broken down steps for each unit) and I still didn’t think I was prepared enough.  Yesterday was the big day, and I spent the morning at Alex Anderson’s studio (yes, THAT Alex Anderson,) being video taped ...

April Globetrotting from ColorBar Quilts

Whipped up my San Juan Globetrotting block this week, it went together very quickly.   




I am really loving how all the blocks look together.  


I also cut out all the fabric to put together my paper piece April Lucky Star block.

Now just need to stitch them up. 

Thank you for stopping by and visiting. 


Cheers,

Block of the Month SAMQG April 2014 from One Designer Pursuing her Dreams

BOM APRIL SAMQG

Block made by Kelli

These are the SAMQG’s block of the month for April.  Our group has a pattern posted on our Facebook page.  Then, each member makes as many blocks as they want.  All the blocks go in a “lottery” and you have as many chances to win, as blocks you’ve brought.  Easy.  I think many guilds (traditional or modern) make Blocks of the Month or Lotto Blocks this way.

This block is so fast and easy.  I really think we’ll have loads of them at the May meeting.  As of right now, my name is ...

Aurifil February BOM from Lily Patch Quilts

February, where did you go? It's the end of the month tomorrow and I still have some projects I would like to finish. I really don't want to get behind on the BOMs that I am participating in this year. This is Aurifil's February BOM called Mother's Day. I pulled out my stash of purple fabrics and started prepping the pieces yesterday.


(Fuzzy photo is what I get using my phone at night.)

As soon as my kiddos went to bed I started sewing the pieces together. I am making two blocks per month because I ...

Aurifil March BOM from Lily Patch Quilts

I sat down and finished my Aurifil BOM called Borders by Emily Herrick. I downloaded the pattern when it first went up on the Aurifil blog and started cutting away. As I was cutting I had a feeling that some of the measurements where off, but I didn't listen to myself. I continued cutting.



I then went to sew the blocks together and guess what? I was right. Some of the strips were 1/2" off. I then went to the Aurifil blog and looked at the instructions again to make sure and thank goodness the instructions for the ...

Wishes Along BOM from Lily Patch Quilts

I am finally caught up with my Wishes Along BOMs. I don't know how it was that I was so busy last month. I don't like getting behind on things because I am afraid I might not be able to finish if I put it off. Now with February and March's blocks, I used up the excess pieces of fabrics and triangle pieces from January's block. I didn't want to accumulate too many scrap pieces. The larger half square triangles I cut out a template to use up the scraps. I hardly had to cut ...

Vice Versa Block of the Month Club: April from Gen X Quilters

The Vice Versa BOM Club is moving right along.  It's April already!  This month we have a star within a star block.  It shouldn't be any secret that I love this block.  It was chosen as the face of Vice Versa in the BOM logo.  Don't the two blocks have such wonderful opposite personalities?  I hope you enjoy making this one.

Below is the traditional block Block [A].  


And it's inverse Block [B].  

Fabric is Pure Elements by Art Gallery Fabrics for my version of the BOM.

I am looking forward to seeing your version in ...

Globe Trotting Block 4 from Pink Fox Piecing


My fourth block for the Mystery Boom, and I have to say I just love looking at everyones block in the flicker group here. I wasn't quite sure how I would feel about it being a mystery quilt and not quite knowing what the turn out would be, but I have to say I look forward to the start of each month and seeing a new block.
AND I don't consider this a WIP quilt either! I can't work on it if I don't know what the next block will be!! So it's not really ...

зАмок from Roolen

Есть у меня маленький зАмок:


Что-нибудь напоминает?
А так:


Да. Это все продолжение прошлогоднего строительства.
Нас было немного, но дворцы получились на славу. 
Приблизительно такие же маленькие зАмки, как у меня, уже давно отправились в память о совместном проекте в Киев, Москву, Старый Оскол и Ярославль. К тем, кто уложился в срок.
Это компьютерная вышивка, вышивала лично,  старалась  сделать ее в той же гамме, как и большие зАмки их будущих обладательниц. 
У меня эта маленькая вышивка превратилась в очередную наволочку для диванной подушки (люблю такой формат). Ткани - те же, что и в большом зАмке.


А Зоя Воскресенская прислала  в ответ ...
