Other uses for BOM Block Patterns from Gen X Quilters

This project started out as a March Mini, but alas..... I didn't finish it in March.  And it also didn't end up a mini.  Que sera, sera.

Instead it's a giant floor pillow.  I picked up 3 of these 26" down pillow forms at Ikea thinking my kids need reading/tv pillows.  Here's the first.  I hope it encourages more of the reading..... than the tv....  

so far it's only encouraged fighting.  Better get moving on the companions.
I went to the ever-growing collection of BOM block patterns I have written over the past few ...

Flimsy Finish! Sew Sweet Simplicity BOM from Red Letter Quilts

I added 12 alternate blocks + 10 setting triangle blocks.
Houston, We have a flimsy!

What a fun Block of the Month! When it began last fall, I found the denim color, hand-dyed yardage loitering deep within my stash. For five years it had served great purpose, providing stability to the many blue fabrics stacked upon it while waiting to someday be over-dyed.
Hmm, If I'm to break my strict No New Starts rule with Jacquelynne's tempting QAL, I reasoned, I can clear some stash and rid of another 'maybe I will use this someday' skeleton projects and ...

Have you heard of from Gen X Quilters

Have you had a chance to browse  If you've never been to before, Terri Ann had the wonderful idea to host a site for those of us who enjoy a good quilt along (QAL).  The site is a directory of current and past quilt alongs, along with a list of sewing or quilting link parties.  The site launched in January of this year.

Sound up your alley? showcases and catalogs QALs that are both free and paid patterns.  It's a great reference if you're looking to join a group project.  Each ...

Moccasin Block of the Month Club - April from Gen X Quilters

I'm excited to show you April's block for the Moccasin Block of the Month Club.  Today the pattern goes out and I can't wait to see what you do with this one.

This block is an original design called Bosonic String.  It is based on the form of the classic Old Maid's Puzzle block, but I've simplified it a bit and made the focus of the block a set of strings in the main large triangles.  Strings make such a unique addition to a block.  Have you tried strings before?  I think you'll be ...

"Your Place or Mine?" top is finished from Wendy's Quilts and More

I'm delighted to say that I have finally finished the top of "Your Place or Mine?'.

These are the best photos I could do by myself - it's too big to hang on the clothes line!

and another photo taken with a different camera - it's very hard to capture the colours accurately.

I took this before I sewed the borders on, but it really shows how vibrant the felt is in this quilt. I love how the Kaffe fabrics complement the felt too.

Here's how it will look on our bed eventually:

I did have some hesitation ...

Block of the Month update from Pointless Quilter

I know - two posts in one weekend after a month of silence.  What can I say, when it rains it pours.

I finished all my block/pillow of the months today.  Between cleaning house (my art girls are coming on Tuesday so good inspiration to clean house) I was able to finish these.  First, my Fat Quarter Shop Designer Mystery Block of the Month (#10).

 And then Pat Sloan's Vacation Time Block of  the Month mystery.
 Fat Quarter Shops Snapshots mystery.
 And Shabby Fabrics Pillow of the month.  Made my first rouched flowers on this one.

And I got ...

Classic Meets Modern quilt finish and some wip’s from The Crafty Quilter

I love it when I finish a substantial-sized quilt.  For me, that’s anything bigger than a lap quilt.  I just finished putting the binding on my “Classic Meets Modern” quilt which was a block of the month from last year hosted by Sew at Home Mummy.  Erin guided us each month with a traditional quilt block that she gave a modern twist to.

classic modern finish 2 copy

I used fabric from my stash in a rainbow theme.  The final quilt setting was up to us.  I chose a traditional 3 x 4 setting with plain sashing.  I decided to make the borders with ...

Finished Quilt Top from Modern Sunbonnet Sue

My previous post displayed my National Quilting Association Block of the Month quilt top with sashing added. I have since added the inside and outside borders. I cut the black outside borders on the straight grain of the fabric. I don’t usually do this, but had adequate fabric to make the borders without seams. Having […]

50,000 Quilters! from Quilting by the River

How many quilters do you think are are on the internet???? I receive Jinny Beyer's newsletter every week and it was recently mentioned that over 50,000 people have signed up for her free class on Craftsy! Doesn't that sound unbelievable! Have you signed up for it? Her website is a great one to visit; you can see all of her beautiful fabrics and she also has free patterns. I remember buying one of her books on design many, many years ago.

Early in January I mentioned in a post that Jinny Beyer was teaching a free BOM ...

Joy Finished from Inky Threads

This has been a long going BOM for me. It actually ended up being a Block of the Year for awhile there. But, it finally got done. And it's sold already.

The pattern for this is at Stitchin' Heaven. I also sold these two, both Bonnie Hunter patterns.

Now on to my version of Bonnie's Orca Bay mystery.

Moccasin Block of the Month Club - March from Gen X Quilters

Is it seriously March?  Because you wouldn't know it from the negative temps and wind chills we are still having here in Ohio.  Grrr.  If it could just hit 32, it'd feel downright balmy! March brings us the next block pattern in the Moccasin Block of the Month Club.

Do you want the good news or the bad news first?  :)  The good news is that this month we are back to basics.  This month's blocks are comprised only of squares and half-square triangles (HSTs).  The bad news, you ask?  It's a bit of homework this month ...
