Love These Blocks! from Quilt Doodle Doodles

I just love the Quilt Doodle BOM 2017 blocks when they are done with embroidery instead of being appliquéd. While you guys are following along month by month, I am attempting to make two quilts! One that is done with fusible applique and one that is embroidered. I know that applique isn't  everyone'should cup of tea so by showing the blocks can be embroidered presents another sweet option for doing this quilt. I want to show you how easy it is to do! I am not the best hand stitcher, my mom, grandma and friend, Colleen are awesome ...

Happy Valentines Day quilt from Pointless Quilter

I can't tell you how long it's been since I've had this kit.  I know I bought it on clearance at least 2 years ago.

It's already hanging in my bedroom.  It's supposed to have heart buttons but the buttons they gave me are more on the burgundy side instead of red and I didn't really like them.  So I am leaving it like this.  That is ric-rac going through the blocks.  And I used only the blocks with dogs in them except one that has cookie in it.  That's in honor of ...

Slow Going from Elsie Quilts

Cobblestone Lane (or whatever I wind up naming it) is going slow, mainly because those blocks have no 'one size fits all' quilting design. Each one is a puzzle and my experience is not extensive on this sort of quilt. However, it it happening... slooowly! I'm into the second row of blocks so have done about one third.



My side table has a pile of fabric to make a BOM, the one from The Quilt Show designed by Sue Garman. It is a medallion that could be any size, depending on when you stop adding rounds. I like her ...

Der Churn Dash und mein Freund der Nahttrenner from Lalala Patchwork, Quilting, and More

Unseren Sew-Along 6Köpfe-12Blöcke haben wir im Dezember geplant, so wusste ich der Churn Dash, ausgesucht von Nadra, ist im Februar an der Reihe und ich hatte ihn schon vor einiger Zeit genäht. Nun lag der Block auf meinem Arbeitstisch und irgendwie habe ich ihn immerzu betrachtet und gedacht: „Irgendetwas stimmt hier nicht“  Grundsätzlich mache ich […]

February Short List from Quilt Paint Create

The months just fly by.

In January I completed two projects and creative play. I haven’t posted pictures of the creative play, but will soon.

The Short List includes something old (UFO), something new, a handwork project and Art Quilt Creative Play. I started using this system in November 2014 to keep myself focused. I adjust the categories as needed to add new interests and drop things that no longer appeal.

  • Something old – The Applewood Farms BOM from 2009 is UFO #9 that was chosen for January’s Get It Done Challenge at Patchwork Times. I have a lot ...

February's Blocks, A Cute Puppy and Chicken! from Quilt Doodle Doodles

This month are a couple of cute blocks, a puppy and chicken. I can't even count how many dogs my grandparents had over the years while all of us were growing up. I can say my least favorite dog was Barney, a St. Bernard. Barney was a sweet dog and I probably would have loved him if we would have started out on a better foot. Here's my version of the story.... Imagine a thirteen year old who, well was a typical thirteen year old girl, fussy about her hair and outfits. When I first met Barney he ...

Chocolatier Block of the Month Club #2 from Gen X Quilters

Chocolatier Block of the Month 2 Blocks
We're back with Month 2 of the Chocolatier Block of the Month Club.  How appropriate that this month's flavor in my "skittles" version of the BOM is Pink.  Love is in the air after all!
Today, the Month #2 Block Pattern for Chocolatier is now available.  Check your emails and mailboxes!

We are making 2 blocks this month.  We're keeping it relatively simple to get into the groove with this BOM.  We have a jazzed up version of the Friendship Star, called Eccentric Star.  And block #2 is a fun stitch-n-flip, called Arrowhead.  That lighter pinky color ...

Rolling Stone – Finale im Januar from Lalala Patchwork, Quilting, and More

Quiltpolizei? Denkt immer daran, es gibt keine Patchwork- oder Quiltpolizei! Wie oft ich schon gehört habe: „man macht aber“ oder „man muss“, nein man muss nicht! Es gibt kein RICHTIG oder FALSCH! Erlaubt ist was gefällt. Und noch etwas: Seid nicht so streng zu euch selbst! Erst Übung macht den Meister. Betrachtet den Nahttrenner als […]

BOM and quilt class from Ramblings of a Fabric Obsessor

The last time I posted was the day of my first BOM. This Saturday, is a quilt class using the ruler from the BOM class 10 days ago. It's about time that I share some pics! Tina, my partner in crime who is taking the BOM and classes with me, had her block made by 8 PM the day of the class. Over achiever! lol This is the fabric kit that the shop was offering and Tina and I got the same color

Heart Blocks from Jan's Quilts


These are the Heart Blocks that I made for the Temecula Valley MQG Block of the Month ~ Charity Quilt project.  Each month we're introducing a new block as the Block of the Month.  We're asking members to make at least one block for our future Charity sewing and suggest making one or more to keep for herself.  

This month we used the Cluck Cluck Sew tutorial but needed to add new cutting sizes for the 12.5-inch blocks we're collecting.

Below are the blocks I made as samples to show at the January meeting.  I'm keeping ...

Deana: New project BOM from Dreamworthy Quilts


I have decided to join Esther's BOM called "Entwined".  It is lovely.  I am not really a pink person and I especially don't like to mimick another quilter's fabric colors, but pink is what I will be using along with black and a deep salmon/rusty red color.  I purchased fat quarters out of these fabrics for friends at Christmas.  We are a group of quilters who have been sewing together for many many years.  It was decided at the Christmas party that we would all make something out of these fat quarters and share a finished ...

Winter Stargazing from Dueling Threads

Stargazing in winter might seem ideal as you have more uninterrupted viewing hours.  However, shivering in a Kansas field doesn’t sound like best way to take in the stars.  I prefer to quilt! At least that hobby keeps us warm in the 60 degree winters…

Was anyone else part of the warm spell last week?  My kids were running around outside in sweatshirts complaining that they were hot.  Sigh.  It didn’t stay warm, so they are back inside, bouncing off the walls and each other.  We had to declare a moment of silence this evening for our sanity ...

Hattie’s Trick from Dueling Threads

Hattie’s Trick blocks from the Two Sister Sampler are complete,  “Just In Time”  (JIT).  That has been a fad in manufacturing for years!  Since I don’t actually need a new top to quilt yet, I delayed the completion so that this top is completed when I DO need something to quilt!  (Do you buy that?)

Hattie’s trick is another layout using half square triangles.  I feel like I have made a lot of these this year.   Mine are four colors, with three values.

FREE 2017 BOM {Diamond Hill} from Craft Gossip

Newsy. Esther of Esther’s Blog launched her 2017 BOM this week where participants will make a Diamond Hill quilt. Best news is it’s FREE. And if you’re familiar with some of her past projects, like Oma’s Blues, then you know her patterns are top-notch. Of Diamond Hill she explains,

In this quilt you’ll find a satisfying balance of both applique and piecing which will keep you busy for seven months. I’ve opted for the hopelessly romantic theme of cream, pink and green because, why not?

Seven months will go by in a flash, so ...

A New Sampler Quilt. from Jan's Quilts



My quilt guild, The Temecula Valley MQG is starting a Block of the Month program this year.  The goal is two-fold; first to make quilt blocks to be donated to our Charity Quilt Committee and the second goal is to have the BOM be a skill builder.  We're encouraging members to make another block or more each month for their own Sampler Quilt.

Each month a member will introduce a 12 inch BOM, it'll be posted on the TVMQG blog with a tutorial.  This is all new for us, but it should be fun.

Here is the fabric ...

Celebrate Canada's 150th Anniversary with The Canadian Sampler from Quilt Matters

I am very excited to share with you a project I'm participating in with 19 other Canadian designers -- The Canadian Sampler. Sew Sisters Quilt Shop asked us each to design a block to celebrate Canada's sesquicentennial as part of a Block of the Month (BOM) Club for 2017. It didn't even take me two seconds so say, "Hell ya!"


Here is the finished quilt. Didn't they do a great job laying out all the different blocks?


You don't have to lay yours out this way, of course -- you can lay it out any way you ...
