Scrap Vortex - Bonnie & Camille style from A Quilting Sheep

 Crazy Mom Quilts is the brain child for the Scrap Vortex quilts and I fell in love with the style the very first time I saw it. It's a great way to use up the tiny scraps you can't throw away, which is how I feel about my Bonnie and Camille scraps. I save nearly every one. 

And I love how this quilt turned out....

You can read more about this quilt here.

Have a happy weekend!!

Blossom Love - A New Quilt Pattern and a GIVEAWAY from Lilabelle Lane

"I love big blocks, I can not lie!"

Allow me to officially introduce my newest machine pieced quilt,

"Blossom Love"

Nice big 18" blocks with the quilt finishing at 62" x 62" and Fat Quarter Friendly.

Blossom Love has been made using "Frolic" the newest fabric range from Melly and Me for Ella Blue and I do believe that it is now in Australia and has starting to arrive in shops. 

I am also including one block as the centre of a medallion quilt I am making and I love how it looks in 'scrappy' Bonnie and Camille.

This medallion ...

Red, White and the Blues from A Quilting Sheep

I am calling this one Red, White and the Blues because I didn't have enough navy prints to make it scrappy.  In other words, each navy print would have to be used several times and I didn't want to do that. Instead I added in the aqua blue instead. 

I am slowly, but surely making barely any dents in my Bonnie and Camille fabrics. 

I had an ever growing pile of white tone on tone fat quarters in my stash. I never knew what to do with them. My Friendship Love quilt used many shades of white and ...

Road Trip and Red, White and Blue from A Quilting Sheep

Happy June, everyone! I love, love, love summer! I love the heat and I love the sun, so I am a happy camper these days! I can't be outside enough during these sweet summer days. =) 

Last weekend we hopped on the motorcycle and took a trip south to what has become an annual trip for us to Missouri Star Quilt Company. This was our 4th visit to this famous quilt city and it never disappoints. I went with a plan this time and chose my purchases carefully.

My stash is severely lacking in two colors. Yellow and orange. I ...

Scrap Vortex from A Quilting Sheep

I am a huge fan girl of Amanda Jean @ Crazy Mom Quilts. I have been following her since I first started quilting in 2008. She is such an inspiration. One of my very favorite scrap techniques she shared was the Scrap Vortex. I am not as confident with my scrap quilts, so I tend to use this technique with the left over scraps by fabric line or, in this case, with fabric designers. Controlled scrappy, in other words. 

I apologize for the terrible photography. When I was making this one, the weather had turned very wet and cold. Perfect days ...

Two UFOs done and SAD from A Quilting Sheep

The weather in Iowa has been gloomy and foggy for weeks. I can't remember the last time I saw the sun. =( I have Seasonal Affective Disorder (SAD) and the lack of sunshine makes it much worse. Sewing with pretty colors and keeping busy does help, but I am never quite myself again until spring comes. These last few weeks have been rough. The point of mentioning SAD? No sun also means it is super hard to take decent pictures of the projects I have finished so I can share them here, or on Instagram, for that matter! I decided ...

Hexie -a-day with Katja Marek from Lilabelle Lane

I have invested in
The New Hexagon - Perpetual Calendar 
by Katja Marek for my work desk.
Each day has a new Hexagon.

Instead of just looking at the hexies each day as I flip the calendar over I thoughgt that I might actually try to sew one a day.  I know that some days it will not be possible so on those day I will not stress but try again the next day.  Realistically, one a day for me will be much easier once the kids are back at school in February!

To make the task a little more achievable ...

Power Sewing! from A Quilting Sheep

I grabbed up every second I could get to sit at my machine and make up these sweet spool blocks. It didn't take long before the top was all put together! No two spools are alike. I used 72 different fabrics from my expansive Bonnie and Camille stash. I added some yellow from other lines to give me more variety. The ribbon border fabrics are repeats of what are in the spool blocks. I was too lazy to look for 24 more fabrics for that part. =) 

As soon as I got that done, I grabbed up a Little Ruby ...

My Bonnie and Camille Scrappy Pineapples from Lilabelle Lane

Playing with Pineapples again .....

This might just be one of my slowest growing machine pieced projects but I have upped the count from 5 to 8 pineapples and as you can see there is a colour change beginning to happen.

I am thinking that slow progress is better than no progress :)

Now I need to go scrap diving again so I can get to the next one.

Happy Stitching,

Sew Sweet Bee Blocks from A Quilting Sheep

I have been way behind in getting my Sew Sweet Bee blocks done. Today was catch up day! I was a bit nervous sitting at my machine. It's been months since I have done any sewing. It was like riding a bike. You don't forget how. =) *whew*

The cake block was requested by Missy. You can see the other cake blocks that were made for her on her blog Missy's Homemaking Adventures. Now for a small confession. I made this cake block in the  Snapshots quilt along by Fat Quarter Shop, but I never finished the quilt ...

Saltwater Mini Quilt from Amy Made That

Hello, Friends!
I've been back at the sewing machine,
and I've got lots of new things to show you.
 Today I'm sharing my Saltwater Mini Quilt,
made from the pattern by Thimbleblossoms.

I was craving a mini quilt, 
and this design looked like such fun to make.
I was not disappointed when I made it
from a few fat quarters of Hello Darling
by Bonnie and Camille.

I made this block first, and I was hooked.
The apple green looks so sweet with the
pink strawberry print.

Hmmm...I wasn't sure I liked the "busy" blocks ...
