New blocks for House Warming from My Sewing Room

I finally got the little red birds appliqued last night onto the 3 blocks for month 2 of the House Warming Party BOM. These 3 blocks, plus the 4 from last month, will all go into the outside borders of this quilt.  I am really excited to work my way into the center section, which has bird houses - and more birds.  Fun!

Look what I found! from Wenche's Pieces of Time

I was searching for roman point lace patterns:

........ and came accross something that triggered my want for making a quilt again:

Thread Head Quilt along with 9" blocks. It's from 2010/11 but everything is still there......even the Flickr group picture album.

She also made a quilt-along in 2012 with 7" blocks:

I really like these two and I might give it a go for one of them. Just have to make me some jeans and a winter coat before the winter season sets in with full force :)
Both of these quilts were designed in EQ but there ...

Marcus Brothers Block of the Week finished from Pointless Quilter

In August, Marcus Fabrics started a sew along which is basically a block of the week program in which some of their fabric designers posted a block and then the final week was the setting.  Here's a link to the description of their sew along

I had several fat quarters and fabrics that fit the civil war theme and wanted to use them up so thought this was a good thing.  I decided to not use a big border - because I don't think it needed it and because I didn ...

Globetrotting Top from ColorBar Quilts

I am winding up some of my quilting projects before I have to pack it all up.   I have about three weeks before I need to put it all away for the movers to pack.  I had planned to have all my projects caught up but it was just not realistic.  Oh well there is always next year.  When I unpack my sewing stuff it will be like Christmas morning.  Can't wait!

My latest finish is my Globetrotting BOM quilt top.

This finished off at 59" x 59".  I put my own spin on the quilt and I am ...

Design Wall Monday - BOMs from Life In Pieces

The weekend was cold and damp, absolutely perfect for spending time in the sewing room.  Other than some laundry and a spot of housekeeping, that's where I spent most of my weekend.  I did play editor for a bit yesterday.  Drama Teen had to write a speech for English and wanted an audience for a few practice rounds.  

Scrappy Stars just needs one more border before it's a finished flimsy.  No pictures of it today, the last 6.5" border makes it too big to photograph in my sewing room.  I've been playing around with names for ...

Vice Versa Block of the Month Club - October from Gen X Quilters

Today I sent out the last installment of the Vice Versa Block of the Month Club.  The October pattern gives the instructions on assembling the quilt top.  Hooray!  And Boo-Hoo.  I am happy and sad at the same time.  I've had so much fun over the course of 2014 working on this quilt with you.

FYI - October is the last pattern mailing for those who have subscribed to the BOM program.  However, sometime in November, I will be showing details on my Vice Versa finish and giving you some ideas for quilting your own quilt here on the blog ...

More BOM Finishes from Modern Sunbonnet Sue

I have been stitching a lot in the last few months, just not blogging about it. Blogging can take a lot of time, which impacts how much time I have to quilt. And life has way more important activities than spending all my extra time blogging. But, I thought I would share my next three […]

October's Block from Quilt Doodle Doodles...

It's the very last section to the quilt. Wow, I can't believe how quickly the time has gone! Well a winter themed quilt needs a string of lights. We have our lights up on our house all winter long. Every year I think it would be a good idea and string the lights outside before the snow falls. I really think the ideal time would be right before Thanksgiving but after Halloween. But my hubby always wants to wait until after Thanksgiving. We've been out in the snow hanging lights and they stay up until spring. Mainly ...

September Block Quilt Doodle BOM 2014 from Quilt Doodle Doodles...

I know, I know, it's another tree, an 'Evergreen Tree'. I hope you don't mind another tree but I can't have a forest unless there are a few trees. I hope to someday have a cabin in the woods next to a lake, doesn't that sound wonderful. A quiet place to go with no traffic noise. A place to listen to the birds sing... This month's block is the final block for the center section. It's a cabin in the woods.  I hope that you have fun with this month's section. I will ...

Quilt Labels for Vice Versa Block of the Month from Gen X Quilters

For last year's BOM, I had some custom quilt labels printed at Spoonflower and was really happy with how they came out.  I decided that I would kick it up a notch this year for the Vice Versa BOM by making the labels again...... but this time adding space for maker's to sign their work.  Of course!  Aren't we supposed to do this every time?  I am usually so bad about labeling my quilts.  Having this pre-made label ready to go makes it so much easier for me to get pumped about that very last step of ...
