Design Wall Monday - September 16. 2019 from Small Quilts and Doll Quilts

This week I got out one of my oldest UFOs.  I don't know why I stop on a project, but I do know that it is always fun to get a UFO out and see what's what.  This project was started by my friend Joan Edwards, and after she worked on it a while, she announced that she was done, and wanted to get rid of it.  I volunteered to take it and finish it......well, I volunteered to take it anyway.  The

Quilt around the Clock {Quilt Camp Review} from Little Bunny Quilts

I'm back home after a wonderful few days sewing my heart out!

Let's review my project progress:

My first project was to make two quilt tops using our Hip To Be Square pattern and Island Batik fabrics for my November Island Batik blog hop project. I won't show off the full tops until the blog hop, but here is a sneak peak:


As an Island Batik Ambassador, I am provided with samples of various lines of Island Batik fabrics, Aurifil thread, and Hobbs Batting to use and share with you

My second project is my September Island ...

Last Hurrah: How Did I Do That? from Wedding Dress Blue

TUTORIAL (Sort of):  Last Hurrah Quilt

48″ x 70″

Many of you have kindly asked how I do a quilt like Last Hurrah that I shared with you last week.  If you look closely, it is not strip pieced.  Yep, all single blocks.  But, don’t let that scare you off.  It isn’t that bad.

Here we go!

  1. Color Scheme–I wanted something sort of like a rainbow, but not a rainbow.  You can pick anything, really.  If you are relatively new to scrap quilting, you might find the backing fabric FIRST and then pick colors to go with ...

Into the Wild {Quilt Camp Prep} from Little Bunny Quilts

I am so excited to head back to "Quilt Camp" aka quilt retreat with my mom next week!

As I have done the last two years, today I'm sharing about the projects I am planning to work on while I am off in quilting land next week.

My first project is actually two projects. For my November Island Batik blog hop project, I received a very large bundle of fabric and split it up into two colorways to make two different versions of our Hip to Be Square pattern. I've actually never made our Hip to Be Square ...

2018 – Ten Squared Plus Five from Lotus Cove Quilting

At last, the Rochester Modern Quilt Guild’s first show, “Taking Flight,” is over (September 29) and I’ve nearly recovered. It was a huge success; we had lots of visitors, lots of quilts, and lots of happy vendors. It was also a huge job creating a show out of whole cloth, a job I’m glad to pass along to another guild member.

Quick Quilt from Wedding Dress Blue

This quilt is a gift for a teacher friend and, looking at the calendar and being really honest with myself, I knew it needed to be quilted this weekend or it wouldn’t be finished for the last week of school.

So, a flurry of sewing, quilting and binding later, here is a quilt!

DSC01046

It is a simple checkerboard using 2-1/2″ squares.  Inner and outer borders are 1-1/2″ and the center border is also 2-1/2″ squares.  The quilt finishes at 50″ x 70″.

I mostly used several 2-1/2″ mini charm packs, plus a few 5″ charm ...

Finish up Friday: Jude's quilt from miss erin crafts

I am so excited to show you today's quilt.  It's a baby quilt for baby #3 of a friend and this is her third quilt from me.  And she was so gracious in sending me some great photos of Jude with his new quilt, so scroll down and take a peek.

Here are some details: I used a charm pack of Bonnie and Camille's Basics and used every color(every baby needs the entire rainbow in my opinion!).  For the back and border, I used a grey and white print from my stash and of which I ...

~ I can't wait ~ from Podunk Pretties

Good Monday Morning sweet quilty friends!  I've had a huge pile of blue and yellow squares sitting on my cutting table for weeks.  They were supposed to be for a leaders and enders project.  But I couldn't wait to sew up at least one block.


The plan is for a simple charm quilt big enough for the queen size bed in the spare bedroom.  These simple quilt patterns appeal to me more these days.  There was a time when I couldn't wait to learn how to make the more complicated quilts.  Now that I know how to ...

Clam Shells from Collector with a Needle

I have been posting more on Instagram and Facebook.  It is fast but I think lack detail. In a blog post I can provide more information.

Today I posted this photo of my clam shells.
There were a few questions so I thought I would make time for a blog post.

I started this project after visiting a quilt exhibit at the Victoria and Albert Museum in London.  A set of clam shell bed hangings caught my attention.  You know how that goes?  A new project was born.


We were literally moving across country the week I got home.  That ...

Lickety-Split One from Quilt Fabrication

Last week, I showed you Lickety-Split Two, and today it's about her twin sister, Lickety-Split One.


Lickety-Split One quilt


This one is just as pretty, with the same floral prints as Lickety-Split Two but with deep red charms from yardage instead of cream.


Lickety-Split One closeup


Notice that this one doesn't have any sashing. I was really loving the overall deep red theme going, and didn't feel that sashing was necessary.


Lickety-Split One closeup 2


But just like her sister, she has a border that's 3 1/4" wide, matching the squares in the blocks.

Overall, she measures 38" x 38", a bit smaller than Lickety-Split ...

Lickety-Split Two from Quilt Fabrication

The quilting is done, binding is on, and now to show
Lickety-Split Two.


Lickety-Split Two quilt


Remember this pretty assortment of charm squares?


charm squares

Half of them went into the above quilt, and the other half into another. I decided to divide the floral charms, and use half with the cream charms on the right, and the other half with the dark red yardage on the bottom. 

The result is two similar, yet different quilts - figured it might be more fun that way! The other quilt I'll show next week, but for now, it's all about Lickety-Split Two.

Measuring in at 42 ...

Catch up Quilting from Captain's Quilts


For once I'm in the position of having to catch up on the blogging not the sewing - a rare occurrence. The unpredictable British summer continued and the heat started up again.  August came and a family holiday to celebrate Dad's 60th year on the planet.  Unfortunately truck issues meant Olly couldn't come at the last minute so Debbie (Rahrah to the boys) came in his place.  So it's fitting that when back from vacances I picked up on a project abandoned many moons ago.  This quilt for Debbie was started maybe 3 years ago or more ...
