Patisserie – An AccuQuilt Block of the Month from Blossom Heart Quilts

As an unashamed lover of sampler quilts and block of the month programs, it should come as no surprise that it’s a block of the month quilt along that I’ve created in partnership with AccuQuilt. I’m so excited to share it with you!

I love the GO! Qubes that AccuQuilt have – all the basic shapes regularly used in quilt blocks in one set. A quilter’s box set! You can get them in 6″, 8″, 9″ and 12″ finished block sizes. And that’s what this AccuQuilt BOM is all about – a GO! Qube sampler quilt. For ...

August's Block from Quilt Doodle Doodles


As soon as I'm finally unpacked from our family vacation that we take every July, it's August.... August has a way of creeping up on me every year! It usually signals it's time for me to get ready to get back to school, but this year... I don't have to worry about that! It's very strange for me not to worry about meetings and getting the library ready for the kids. I'm a little out of sorts about it and need to set some goals for Quilt Doodle Designs... One thing I know for ...

2017 Designer Mystery BOM-2 from Pieced Brain

 
Yesterday I had time to work on the second block of Fat Quarter Shop's 2017 Designer Mystery BOM. Guys, these fabrics are amazing and the blocks are so beautiful! This month's block is called Piece of Cake and was designed by Me and My Sister Designs and, as usual, they did not disappoint.

I like to label the patches, place them on the back of a cutting mat, and bring them next to me at my sewing table. Patches and pattern were ready, and so was I.

If the block stopped right here I would have been happy ...

July's Blocks Embroidered from Quilt Doodle Doodles


I have been working on two versions of this quilt. An applique quilt and one done in embroidery. Doing one in embroidery has been a challenge for me since I am slow at stitching.  SLOW.... like a snail... turtle... sloth.

I do have to say my stitches are improving and I find embroidery to be relaxing and enjoyable. I had the pleasure of spending time with my family on vacation last week. Mom and I spent most afternoons sitting lakeside and stitching. It was so much fun to spend quality time with everyone. Mom is playing catch up on her ...

Curve It Up – Finale from Dueling Threads

At long last, finally, or call it the Finale, my curve it up quilt is completed.  It has been waiting a while for quilting.  The pattern is called “Curve it Up” and also uses the Quick Curve ruler sold by Sew Kind of Wonderful.

If anyone out there actually followed my blog starting back in March of 2015 you will have seen some of my self-learned tips and tricks while learning to use this ruler.  I highly recommend the sampler pattern as it lets you practice with several curve sizes and layout.  Each of the blocks would make beautiful quilts ...

A New Project-Sneak Peek from The Inbox jaunt

Good Morning, Quilters! I recently splurged on a collection of hand dyed fabric from Cherrywood Fabrics… They are sooooo pretty–the kind you don’t even want to cut! But I’ve learned my lesson about “saving fabrics”.  (I once saved a favorite … Continue reading

Crazy Quilting by Numbers from Telling Stories Through the Needle's Eye

As I (Kara) mentioned in last week's post, Welcome to Germany: Quilter's Style, buying fabric to pad my stash before leaving for Germany made up most of the purchases I made in Houston. But as Teri and I were wandering through the booths, we came upon Sew Cherished. What caught our eyes, were not just the beautiful wool and wool projects, but the crazy quilting stitches that were incorporated into many of the patterns. We explored the booth and came across what looked like crazy quilting stitch guides. I was intrigued and asked the shop owner, Dawn, for ...

Pre-Sisters Oregon Trip finishes from Pointless Quilter

I would have posted these before I left on my trip to the Sisters Outdoor Quilt Show, but my computer took a dive (15 month old Toshiba Satellite - the keyboard stopped working).  I took it to Best Buy to repair - which they couldn't and the warranty expired of course so they game me a wireless keyboard to use.  So much for a convenient laptop to take on trips.

Anyway, here is what I finished before I left on July 2nd.

This is the Fat Quarter Shop 2016/2017 Designer Mystery Quilt.

X and Plus blocks from Jan's Quilts



This month it's my turn to present the Block of the Month to our Temecula Valley MQG members.  I love these X & + blocks.  I used Amy of Badskirt's tutorial but upsized the measurements to end up with a 12.5-inch unfinished block. This is such a wonderful, scrappy block.

Here are the measurements I used:

Center Cross - (2) 2.5-inch squares and (1) 2.5-inch x 6.5-inch strip.=
Edges of Cross - (4) 2.5-inch x 3.5-inch strips
Background Triangles - (8) 3/5-inch squares
Branches of the X - (4) 5.5-inch squares

To have a true scrappy ...

Welcome to Germany: Quilter's Style from Telling Stories Through the Needle's Eye


The sum total of my stitching choices while I wait
for my sewing room to arrive.
As we told you in our post "Going Global," I (Kara) have moved to Germany! We found out that we would be moving here last October—two days before Teri and I left for Quilt Market in Houston. I waited to tell Teri that it was official until we had arrived at our hotel, and she was sitting down with coffee in hand (wine would have been better, but it was only ten in the morning). She took the news well, and we proceeded ...
