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 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.

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 ... read more

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 ...

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.

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 […]read more
Il y a un Double bloc du mois à la guilde. Jeudi dernier, les premiers blocs ont été dévoilés. 3 anciens blocs dont 2 de notre choix à coudre.
There was a BOM launched at the guild last thursday. 3 old block patterns and we sew two of them. That's why it's called Double block of the month (DBOM).
On parle de ce bloc dans la publication ''The Ladies Art Company'', de St-Louis, Missouri, en 1895. Voir le site web The Quiltindex.org

Today I'm making a picnic placemat using a 12 inch finished block in the centre. It is the BOM project for my guild, and will be donated to the boutique for next June's quilt show. Our coordinators for BOM will be adding lots of interesting patterns over the next few months - small gift items and also good for the boutique!
I'm making a hanging sleeve for the Mickey quilt, and have also completed my small applique project, as well as the Hexagon Hydrangeas quilt that I showed while it was in progress. It came from a photo ...
Here in Southern New Hampshire we have started a new Modern Quilt Guild - New Hampshire Modern Quilt Guild. Trish and I are co-VPs which means we get to run programs! We introduced a 12" modern BOM last month using the Modern Quilt Guild's 100 days _ Week of Techniques _ Target Practice Quilt Block
I adapted the block down to a 12" and presented a tutorial on Easy Set-In Circles.
This is the Tutorial for the circles, also known as the 6-minute circle, and there is a video of the sewing at the end.
