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 ...

Back to Piecing from Patchwork Sampler Blog

After my quilting marathon to finish the See You In September Blog Hop quilts I was itching to start a new project and this jelly roll of Miss Kate fabric was calling my name.

JR

All of the Bonnie and Camille fabrics are gorgeous but I really like this line with the aqua, lime and navy. It is so pretty!

I’ve been toying around with a design idea and this jelly roll will be perfect.  It starts out with a few Sister’s Choice blocks.

Sisters Choice

This isn’t much of a start but my day was frittered away with a ...

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 :)

Interwoven binding

I hope you enjoy the tutorial and thanks for stopping by,

Garden Trellis Finished from Patchwork Sampler Blog

Still not much sewing going on around here but I did manage to finish the Garden Trellis quilt. 

April Showers

The pattern is from the book Jelly Roll Quilts by Pam and Nicky Lintott and the fabric was a jelly roll from Bonnie and Camille’s April Showers line by Moda.  I quilted the center with all-over swirls and the border with continuous up and down lines. 

Things are settling down a little bit this week so I’m hoping to spend some serious time in the sewing room.  I have to go to work for a while this morning but this ...

Nested Churn Dash from Want It, Need It, Quilt It!


Churn dash fever has hit cyberspace so in celebration of the revival of this classic block I designed the nested churn dash.

Start with a 4"x 4" block and progress to a 24" x 24" finished block. The beauty of this block is that you can stop at any layer to make a 4" x 4", 8" x 8", 16" x 16" or 24" x 24" block. Make a combination of all different sizes to make a fun quilt. 

I have made 9  - 24" x 24" blocks and will be making a simple quilt something like this using a ...

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

ALYOF - April Finishes from In the Boondocks

My goal for April was to create something out of this awesome fabric!

The fabric reminds me of the Russian Olympics (lots of pizzaz)
and beautiful colors!

Well I completed my goal and just got it back from the quilter, my wonderful friend, Irene Hensley, (love the hearts),
my only problem is it is not ready to be revealed.

So, here is a corner to prove I made the goal.
I did make something of the fabric and soon all shall be revealed.


Second item I completed this month was making Zoey an Easter dress. If you want an easy ...

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 ...

Feature: April Showers from Southern Fabric

Ahh, Bonnie & Camille.  Everything they do is great, right?!
Let me have them tell you about April Showers.

"You know the old saying, 'April showers bring May flowers.' This vintage inspired collection has everything from showers to flowers, with darling dots and stripes in between.  AD to that emerald gree, red and aqua {our favorite} mixed with some green apple, teal, cloudy grey and cheerful yellow and just a touch of pink, you will be more than ready to grab your rain boots and head out for some puddle jumping.  Don't forget your umbrella!"

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 ...

She told me she likes ric rac and selvages.

Bonnie and Camille until after I'd sent
her new skinny pinnie to her!

More Thoughtful Pincushions - Part 1 from Amy Made That

It's my firm belief that 
you can't have too many pincushions.


I'm finding lots of wonderful friends who feel the same way,
and that's how we ended up with
53 skinny members of the
Skinny Pinnie Pincushion Swap!

{Once my partner has received her new pinnie, I'll show you that one.}


One day last week, I had a free sewing day!
I decided to make some more
using my Susan Branch illustrations.

{This was the first batch of Thoughtful Pincushions I created.}


Before anyone asks,
I must say that I've looked all ...

Another Bento Box Block from Ants to Sugar

I went to the post office yesterday, and it felt SO good to get bee blocks in the mail!

Mail time!

Those packages include a set of do. Good Stitches blocks, my Stash Bee hive 8 blocks, one baby quilt headed for a friend in Montana, and a fat quarter of Architectures that someone on Instagram needed to finish a project. Getting to the post office is a big chore for me, but I love that feeling I get when I put quilty things in the mail. I love imagining the excitement someone hopefully feels when they open up a box and ...
