"In the Garden"—Violets from Telling Stories Through the Needle's Eye

Roses are red, 
Violets are blue.
God can make violets,
But so can YOU! 

At least you can, if you use ribbon! This month's Block of the Month in our In the Garden series will have you creating lovely violets out of wired ribbon. Are you ready? Here we go! I (Teri) will give you a quick pictorial tour of the methods used to create these life-like blooms, and  then you will be ready to start "planting."

Chocolatier Sampler BOM Finish from Gen X Quilters

Today I’m super excited to introduce the new Block of the Month for 2018:

2018 Block of the Month Three's Company. 60" square, free quilt along. Swing by monthly for the steps- www.patchworkposse.com

Three’s Company Block of the Month

Last summer we had a wonderful time sewing up the Summer Solar Eclipse Quilt, and this next year the new BOM will be starting soon!

It features 9 quilt blocks….but within each block there are 3 blocks. So they will take just a little bit longer to sew- so we will be sewing them together on a monthly schedule.

It’s at a pace that you should be able to keep up on.  There ...

6 Köpfe – 12 Blöcke – der fertige Quilt from Lalala Patchwork, Quilting, and More

Ihr seid bestimmt gespannt, wie mein fertiger Quilt aussieht. Das Layout war hilfreich aber so ganz vollendet hat er doch eine ganz andere Wirkung! In den kommenden Tagen zeigen wir sechs Köpfe euch allen unsere fertigen Quilts. Heute beginne ich den bunten Reigen.

Die Blöcke schweben! Findet ihr nicht? Ich bin wirklich froh mich für diese Anordnung der Blöcke entschieden zu haben. Sie erscheinen mir jetzt ganz grazil, bis auf den Dutchman´s Puzzle. Selbst der, optisch am auffälligsten, hat nun seinen Platz gefunden und hat sich mit all den anderen gemütlich gemacht.

A SMALL FINISH & UPDATE TO MY STASH REPORT! from The Proficient Needle

Fabric used this week 1.25 yards
Fabric used year to date  113.5 yards
Fabric added this week 14 yards
Fabric added year to date  70.25 yards
Net used this year  43.25 yards

When I said small, I really meant it!  I completed a table runner - I had finished the hand embroidery, and it had hung, forgotten, on my design wall for 2 years.  I pulled some fabric for backing and borders, and prepped it for quilting before heading south.
Of course, I don't remember the pattern designer......
It looks very sparkly in person - I used ...

A week after our arrival in the sunny south, our son, daughter in law and grandson, age 2 yr 10 months, arrived for a two week visit.  We had so much fun, with trips to Disney World, swimming, mini putt, and just enjoying time with our family.  My sewing room was closed for business for the duration!

December BOM, Kings Crown from Jan's Quilts




I'm in love with this block.  It was so much fun to make.  Here's the link to the tutorial by Sharon Holland and Maureen Cracknell.  Our quilt guild, Temecula Valley MQG is asking members to make at least one 12.5" block each month, to donate to our Charity quilt project.  The first block was presented in January, due in February, and in February 2018 we're planning on putting the blocks together into quilts to donate to a local cause.  I always make four blocks, two to donate and two to keep here for a future project ...

Free Block of the Month: Goldenrod from Telling Stories Through the Needle's Eye

It's hard to believe that we are already up to block 4 of our Flora and Fauna of Germany, Stitch Along. While most of the flowers around here are gone, I still have fond memories of seeing the large bushes of goldenrod along our walking paths. They were almost as tall as me and loaded with golden spikes of flowers.


As I was planning this block, my initial instinct was to use French knots for the flowers because that is what goldenrod looks like from afar. The goldenrod was a common flower to stitch in Victorian crazy quilts and ...

Sew HEXciting! from From the Strawberry Patch...

Sewing hexagons is much like eating potato chips-- I simply can't stop! How will they eventually be set together? What will I use for a background? Time will tell.  I am enjoying the process too much to worry about that just yet. Life is Good!

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 ...
