Weekly update: stash report, RSC, Lotto, BOM, and OMG from With Strings Attached

I've been mentally composing my report on the ALA Midwinter Meeting but until then, here is the quilting news:
Stash report, January:
Fabric IN:   35 yards, $34.81
Fabric OUT: 35 yards
Net:  ZERO    
Yellow is the Rainbow Scrap Challenge color for February.  My project this year is MonthlyColor + gray/taupe pinwheels, one for each day of that month.  I made these 28 during TV-watching last evening.


This month's Block Lotto is "alternating nine-patch." The nine-patches are maker's choice with light squares and inky-dark squares.  These were a snap because I used nine-patches from my Block Swappers ...

A Lettering Tutorial from Telling Stories Through the Needle's Eye

Well it has been about a month since we wrapped up our Flora and Fauna of Germany Stitch-Along and I (Kara) have been diligently sewing the blocks together. I put together the fabric blocks and even got the border on them, but I felt it needed a little something now that I could see them all put together. Lettering popped into my head as just that something. Since each block has a name, inking that on the block—reminiscent of the old botanical prints—seemed like a good idea. It was a bit of a gamble because once done, it ...

Giving Love Quilt Tops from Jan's Quilts


I decided to come up with another layout for my quilt's charity quilts.  This version is super easy, you need 13 12.5" blocks and 12 12.5" HSTs.  The blocks I used were from the guilds BOM program.  Every month we have a different block and ask members to make one and donate it to our Charity Quilt Challenge.  Every month I make 4, 2 to donate and 2 to keep for my own use.  I really like how these turned out.  If you want to make your own Giving Love Quilt, you can find the tutorial here ...

Want to Join Me? from Mama Spark's World

I discovered the Countdown To Christmas BOM on the Moda Bake Shop too late for 2018. I love the idea and loved the blocks so I approached some friends to see if they would be interested to do this with me by making 2-3 blocks per month.  We could have our quilt done by Christmas 2019.   They said YES!   So we are choosing fabric and starting to make our blocks.   You can find the blocks on

New BOM from Espritpatch

I started a new BOM, because I really needed a new project loved the look of it. I don't know if I love cooking, but I spend a LOT of time in the kitchen. So when I stumbled across this BOM by Adventurous Quilter, I decided to give it a go.

I hadn't done any paper piecing in a very long time so it was nice change. And there were a lot of tiny pieces in this first block. The first block is a kitchen mixer, a tool I use almost on a daily basis. I picked fabric ...

Great start for 2019 from Fleur de Lis Quilts and Accessories

for the Cotton Quilter's Guild, anyway! We had our first meeting of 2019 on Monday and started out right. For this meeting I asked (and reminded) everyone to bring in her favorite tool--only one or two. It was a rousing success! 


Not everyone felt comfortable talking in front of the audience, which turned out to be a good thing since I was rushing to wrap up the meeting. We had a round-robin with each person explaining why she likes her particular tool. They wanted to hear everything. A few people asked questions and took notes in the hopes that ...

Weekly Update: winnings, fireballs, dots, and Good Fortune from With Strings Attached

Raffle Mania was the main event at Wednesday's guild meeting.  Members bring quilt-related stuff they no longer love. Raffle tickets are distributed based on the previous year's attendance (1 ticket per month, 1 ticket for wearing a name tag). Additional tickets are .50 each.  I got 17 free tickets and bought 20 more.  I contributed 10 5-lb bags of fabric sorted by color (20 yards per bag), two smaller ziploc bags with fabric, and four bundles of 10 books each.  (I was ruthless when I selected the fabric to donate. How many years have I had this? Does ...

FINAL FINISH FOR 2018 from The Proficient Needle


During the past 12 months, I've been downloading and stitching some lovely patterns from Jenny of ELEPHANTZ

She offered a free BOM in 2018, with a new pattern each month.










I love hand embroidery, and had recently organized all my leftover threads from past projects and kits into zip bags, with one for each colour. 
It was fun to hunt through the bags each month to find some threads.

When I finished the December block, DH and I headed to my favourite local quilt shop to look for 2 fabrics to complete the project.
  I was having a difficult ...
