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
Happy Go ...

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 ...

you can't have too many pincushions.

53 skinny members of the
Skinny Pinnie Pincushion Swap!

I must say that I've looked all ...

Another Bento Box Block from Ants to Sugar

Sewing Baskets for Quilty Fun from Amy Made That

I'm having a blast with the Quilty Fun sew along!
This week we're making Sewing Basket blocks.


These were sew easy to put together...
I think I spent less than an hour making mine.

I kind of named my blocks to myself, based on the fabrics...
this one is Bake Sale.


Then there's my Flower Sugar basket.


And finally the Vintage Modern one.


I used my Angler 2 tool to make this project so easy.
It saves a lot of marking
and adds more accuracy to my stitching.


Once I was done sewing the baskets,
I had ...

Sunday Shopping #6 from Quilting Along the Grain

Today is a day for sitting inside under quilts and watching movies... on the other hand with 3 boys playing rugby, we have spent the morning getting cold and wet...

At the moment they are drinking hot chocolate with marshmallows and cream whilst waiting for the bath to run - there is more mud in the house than on the pitch!

So fabric window shopping is in order to lift my flagging spirits!

First up is the lovely Scrumptious by Bonnie and Camille:


It is a collection of pretty pinks, greens and red that make me smile! I love the mix ...
