STARTS AND FINISHES from That's Sew Kerry

An Animal Menagerie 

It feels like an age since I've had the time to sit down and share my thoughts and adventures, not for want of intention simply to much life going on! I've not been idol in fact far from it I seem to have quilts and ideas coming out my ears! 

I finished Grans Fancy Forest and thankfully it went down a treat, although the deliberate errors still really annoy me, Gran didn't mind them.

Not only has it made a great addition to the chair, but the spot has now been taken over for ...

6 Köpfe – 12 Blöcke – mein Joseph´s Coat – Tutorial – Applizieren mit Fuse Under from Lalala Patchwork, Quilting, and More

Auf diesen Block war ich so gespannt. Als Andrea {Quiltmanufaktur} ihn im Dezember bei unserer Planung vorgeschlagen hatte, waren wir alle irgendwie ehrfürchtig. Also ich hatte den noch nie genäht und wußte bis dato nicht, wie man den macht. Wir haben uns trotz einiger Bedenken dafür entschieden, denn  es gibt ja wieder etwas Neues zu lernen. Und das ist doch immer spannend! Toll ist ausserdem, dass ein weiterer runder Block nach dem Dresden Plate im April zu unserem Sampler hinzu kommt. Und dazu sieht er noch sehr elegant aus!

Andrea´s Block habt ihr ja nun schon gesehen, sie hat ...

Designer Mystery Quilt from Pieced Brain

Catching up with the Fat Quarter Shop's 2017 Designer Mystery Block of the Month has been fun! The first one I worked on was Pat Sloan's "Cat's Pajamas":

I made it's four patches then put them all together. The finished quilt will look lovely because of the choices of fabrics, don't you think?

Here is block 4 by Kate Spain called "Soda Pop":

It was very fast because first...

... you make the four patches, then...

... the diamond in the square for the center, followed by the side patches (no photo). That's it. Here are ...

Bella Skill Builder - Block 9 from Pieced Brain

This is it! Last block of the Bella Skill Builder hosted by Fat Quarter Shop! Here are my blocks:

Two blocks 9A - I wonder if I should have used the yellow for a more pronounced contrast...

One block 9B...

... and one block 9C.  This time we used the Creative Grids Lazy Angle Ruler and it was very easy to make these stars.

And just like that we came to the end of this BOM. Now we have all the blocks we need to put this quilt together. But, before we do it, let's check out the blocks from the ...

Free BOM Block Two: Meadow Cranesbill from Telling Stories Through the Needle's Eye

We are excited to continue our free block of the month Sew-Along. If you are new to the blog, this free BOM will consist of 12 relatively simple blocks based on the German flora and fauna that I (Kara) see on my daily walks with our dogs. Last month's block was based on this butterfly that was gracious enough to allow me to take his picture.

I decided to do two different blocks to show a little variety in the materials that could be used; one with just fabric, and one with a combination of wool and fabric. You ...

There's A Hex On Me! from From the Strawberry Patch...

Every time I turn around I find that the hexagons are mulitplying!  It's all good. Using two of my favorite tools: the Hex and More and Sidekick rulers, I find that the possibilities of creating new hexagonal designs are, quite possibly, limitless! These shapes are the subject of the current block-of-the-month at my LQS; our instructor (Quiltkeemosabe, see former post!) encourages us each month

Medallion Quilt Month 9 from Stitchin at Home

Sorry I'm a couple days late with this. I got my Saturdays messed up, but all is sorted out, just need to remember what week it is. Might help if I looked at the calendar a little better.

This is a 12 1/2'' unfinished or 12'' finished block.

All seams allowances are 1/4''

HST Flying Geese are the October BOM from Jan's Quilts

I cheated!  I wanted to make these far in advance because I have a 3 week trip coming up and I hate to miss a deadline.  (Even if the deadline is self-imposed!)  

TVMQG member Madeline is presenting this block at our meeting this week and it's due in October.  Since I wrote the blog post about the tutorial, I had the inside scoop and was able to make these ahead.  I made four, but they're all alike so I only photographed two of them.  The tutorial can be found here.
May your bobbins always be full,

Simple Pleasures BOM from Jan's Quilts

This is the September Block of the Month for the Temecula Valley MQG.  It was fun and easy to make.  You can find the tutorial here.  Our member, Susan saw this block on IG and couldn't find a name or instructions for it.  I named it and she wrote the tutorial.  Susan did an excellent job.

All the blocks for the BOM project this year are 12.5 inches.  As usually two of these will go to the guild and two will stay at my house.  I'll be ready to make a quilt from all the blocks next ...

6 Köpfe – 12 Blöcke – Bears Paw – September from Lalala Patchwork, Quilting, and More

Es ist September und somit ist der Bears Paw Thema. Ein schöner Block, wie ich finde. Der Sommer ist gegangen, der Herbst ist gekommen. Die Tage werden merklich wieder kürzer.

Dieser Monat gehört Verena {einfach bunt}, ihr zweiter Part nach ihrem Tutorial dem Broken Dishes im März. Ich habe auf meinem Board Bears Paw bei Pinterest eine Inspirationsquelle angelegt. Was man mit diesem Block so alles anstellen kann! Vor allem lassen sich richtig moderne Quilts damit machen. Faszinierend!

Diesen Block mag ich sehr und auch seine Geschichte. Verena hat einiges an Informationen über diesen ...

In Orbit Tutorial - Delilah Block 6 from Sew Some Sunshine

Back to another installment for Delilah.  Well, we've made it to Block 6, In Orbit.  No curves, good news! Crazy y-seam block construction = another test of patience and precision.  If I can do it, so can you.

The directions that come with the templates are pretty light.  I think they assume a lot of prior knowledge and skill on the part of the person sewing.  It took me a bit to figure this one out and thought people might like some help.  Here's how I managed the y-seam to inset the four point portion of the block.  Just ...

September's Block from Quilt Doodle Doodles

I just can't believe that September is already here! Summer is slipping away... there are tell tale signs that fall is right around the corner. The evenings are getting cooler, days are getting shorter and the leaves are just starting to change on a couple of the trees in my yard. This month, I have only one block for you, a watering can full of summer blooms. Coneflowers to be exact. My coneflowers usually bloom towards end of July and August. They are one of the last flowers to stick around and bloom up until fall. As I've ...
