A Clambake Quilt from Susie's Sunroom

The Clambake Quilt

Ding! Ding!  Ding!
I found a winner -a fun and easy way to make the popular clamshell quilt!

Image of Clambake pattern- PDF pattern 191
The Clambake quilt pattern  
The design is by  Camille Roskelley  , " Thimble Blossoms".   ( available here), and also  at the Fat Quarter Shop ( here ).

Camille's pattern had me hooked  when I saw it was Layer Cake friendly, and no curves!
She featured this pattern with the new Bonnie & Camille fabric " Vintage Picnic", but I have  stashed  curated a  huge  nice selection of their "Hello Darling" fabric, and thought the Clambake quilt would work well with that gorgeous fabric . 

Hello Darling ...

Jaybird Quilt's Carnival - A Work In Progress Quilt from Patterns by Jen

 This pretty little quilt is called Carnival from Jaybirds Quilts. I pieced it all together, and then put it away. I just wasn't happy with it, though I couldn't put my finger on why. I finally decided I didn't like the inner border. So I'm changing it up. 

I have these two colors to chose from. The current border, though this same pretty aqua, is a batik, and I think it just doesn't work with the other fabrics. 

Once I switch that inner border I am going to use this pretty little print for the ...

Cathedral Window Pincushions - Spring 2016 from Amy Made That

Hello, Friends!
I'm getting ready for a fun spring craft fair,
so I've been making some new Cathedral Window pincushions.

{Have you seen glimpses of them on Instagram? My Instagram name is @eamylove.}

I've made lots of these sweet little pinnies.

 I kind of have it down to a science now.

I love to prepare the backgrounds for several pinnies, all at once.
There is a lot of pressing in the first steps,
and I can do the prep work even if I ...

{ A Finished Quilt Top } from {The Sweetest Dreams}

My 2012 Fat Quarter Shop Mystery BOM quilt top is done.
I cheated on the borders, shhhh. This quilt has been hanging around for so long I just wanted it to be done. And, now it is. I really do love it.

I've already prepared the binding. All that's left to do is piece the backing and decide what to do about the quilting. 
My quilting skill stops at straight lines. I think this quilt top needs a little more attention than I can give it. So, I will probably mail it out to a professional to make ...

Happy Valentine's Day! from Amy Made That

Happy Valentine's Day!

What a great day for a cuppa
and a little sweet treat!

I used pink and gray prints
from Simply Colorful - the original line.

The wavy quilting was really easy and fun
to do, using my walking foot!

I was inspired by the gray ric rac...
so I chose a gray gingham backing,
using April Showers by Bonnie and Camille.

No matter where in the world you are,
 I hope you'll take time to celebrate
and tell your favorite person how much you love them.

And ...

{ Moving Right Along } from {The Sweetest Dreams}

Even though it's not a finish....yet, I wanted to share the progress on my Fat Quarter Shop Mystery BOM from 2012. 

The top is almost finished- I just have the borders left to do. Three of them, with some flying geese thrown in for fun. {yeah, right}

Since we're expecting a winter storm this weekend, I'm hoping to get the borders pieced and attached. Maybe I'll even make the binding and piece the backing.  The blizzard could be a good thing!

Can I Get A ...

2016 Sew Sweet Bee and Stash from A Quilting Sheep

I've hardly touched my sewing machine in weeks, thus the silence here on my blog. If not for the Sew Sweet Bee block I needed to make for dear Jane, my sewing machine wouldn't have been turned on! Not because I don't want to, but because my sewing mojo has run away. I hope it comes back soon!

The block Jane requested for her month as queen bee was the sailboat block from the Fatquarter Shop Snapshots quilt along. Her quilt will be so cute!

One of my self imposed goals this year is to not buy ...

WIP Wednesday from Mama Spark's World

I am working to finish up the pinwheel baby quilt.   I am trying to finish up the quilting.   It certainly takes a long time.  The center portion took me about 5 hours! Lots of straight line quilting going on right here.   I did a few lines in the small border and decided to mimic that in the larger border. I'm pretty happy with how this turned out.  I now need to square it up and

A Quilty Finish - Ruby Swoon from Lilabelle Lane

I don't "do" New Year Resolutions but I am going to try and be more disciplined
and Blog more in 2016.  

So with that said, here was my last finish for 2015.

My Ruby Swoon.

This beast finished at 98" square and is pictured below on a Queen sized bed.

I have teamed the Ruby Fabric from Bonnie and Camille with some Black Essex Linen.
