#Shortcakealong from A Quilting Sheep


For those who follow me on Instagram, this is a repeat of what I have been up to the last few days. =) 

Erin Jensen and hazel stitches, are the two ladies that began the Shortcake Quilt along and it's happening on Instagram. You can search for it using #shortcakealong. The pattern is called Shortcake by Cluck Cluck Sew and it is a beginner friendly quilt. I love how easy and fun this quilt was to put together. 

These are the A blocks. 


These are the beginning of the B blocks.

Busy, busy, busy! from A Quilting Sheep

Work at Cotton Creek Mill is keeping me busy and my down time is spent in the sewing room. I have no complaints! My job is going very well. I am working more hours and I got a raise! I am now able to fully fund my hobby all by myself. That feels pretty great, I must say!!

I have been trying to catch up on some quilt tops I made last year and get them into the finished pile. This is one of them. =) A little pink overload, don't you think?



The back isn't very pretty, but ...

A Finish - Strawberry Social from Lilabelle Lane

"Strawberry Social"


This was one of those patterns that as soon as I became aware that it existed I knew that I just had to make it.  Better still, it's been mostly made from my scrap basket of Bonnie and Camille Fabrics and entirely from Bonnie and Camille's fabric ranges.


Finished Size - 53" x 66"

I sent this one off to LadyBug Quilting here in Bendigo for to finish it off and then I spent last night hand stitching the binding. I do love hand stitching a binding.


I can't remember the ...

WIP Wednesday from On the Windy Side

I feel like I haven't been writing many work in progress posts lately.  I like writing about the process behind my quilts, and I feel like doing so avoids the impression that my quilts somehow just materialise out of thin air (believe me, it's not the case!).

High Tea Quilt in progress 

After my call for pattern testers last week, I thought I'd better get on with making my own version of the quilt (which I'm calling the High Tea Quilt) during the weekend.  In the end I managed to whip up the throw size by sewing rather maniacally over the ...

Interwoven Quilt {a new Moda Bake Shop tutorial} from Material Girl Quilts

Head on over to the Moda Bake Shop today to check out my latest quilt tutorial, Interwoven.

Interwoven

 

This quilt top is made using 3 charm packs (2 print and 1 background).  For the quilting, I did the fast and fun loopy meander in Aurifil 50wt. 2021, but my favorite thing about this quilt might just be the binding :)

A New Herd of Elephants from Amy Made That

Here they come...a whole new herd
of baby elephants!


I introduced my first bunch of these little elephants,


They sure were fun to create,
using the pattern pieces printed a bit smaller, at 75%.

Turns out...I needed a lot more BOY elephants,
so this time I chose some brighter prints.

{I think they are actually suitable for little girls, too!}


I'm just crazy for the navy blue and lime combination!
The checkerboard print is from Bonnie and Camille's
Happy Go ...

Royal Nine Patch from Moda Lissa




You may remember my post from February that was titled scrappy nine patch. I started sewing mini charms together, not quite sure where it was going to take me. I am now finished and thought I would show you the results.
I call this the royal nine patch, not as a tribute to Prince William but to my new love of the color royal. This really isn't a new love or a new color for me. My school colors were royal and I am still the proud owner of my R.L. Turner letter men's jacket in the ...

Scrappy Nine Patch from Moda Lissa

 I have been working on a scrappy nine patch quilt. I guess this is kind of my mindless project. You know when you get that urge to press the pedal to the medal (race car sewing terms?) but only have a few minutes.

 I am using fabrics from Bonnie & Camille, Vanessa Christenson and Fig Tree & Co.
I am using assorted charm  packs and have cut them in quarters OR using mini charms. Chain piecing in sets of 3 so it will be easy to join them all together.

The next decision will be how to put my 9-patches together. Fun ...

Spring 2012 Quilt Market from Under The Evening Star

Bonnie and Camille
I've had a little time to process my visits to quilt market and I have to say the overwhelm is still coming in waves!

Let me tell you a little about my experience.

I attended market thanks to Camille Roskelley. I helped a bit with her and her mom's booths. I'm sure you've seen their Cotton Way and Thimble Blossoms patterns (Swoon, anyone??). They also design Bonnie and Camille fabric together for Moda. I've loved their fabric designs for quite some time and discovered Camille's Simplify blog through the Artful Blogging magazine a couple ...

A Little Annoyed but Ruby Sure is Making Me Smile! from La Dolce Boutique

So, I'm sure that all of you who sell on Etsy are well aware of the new changes (specifically one) that have taken place this last week.  Some of you (those who have 100's of items that are now everywhere within the search listings) are probably overjoyed with the new change but me...not so much!


Prior to the 10th of August the item search was set to Most Recently Added.  Not that I was a gigantic fan of that either but at least I knew that when I renewed my items they would move to the front ...
