I May Have A Scrap Problem... But This Quilt Could Cure It! from Confessions of a Fabric Addict

Hi, all!

You may have seen that I was doing some pattern testing for Christina Cameli of A Few Scraps - I got to make this beautiful quilt using her soon-to-be-released pattern called Light Speed...


It's a great pattern, fat quarter friendly and so easy to make!  But Christina also included some tips for making it scrappy, so I dug in my scrap boxes and came up with this completely, totally scrappy version...


This one was made with absolutely no rhyme or reason to the colors, prints, placement or anything - and I love its total scrappiness!  I think it would ...

Hi, all!

Guess what?  Friday has rolled around once again, and you know what that means - it's time for us to get our whoop whoop on!  I hope these beautiful spring days have inspired you to be creative - I can't wait to see what everyone is working on!  So let's get started!

Well, yesterday I loaded it up on the quilt frame and finished it up!

Can I Get A Whoop Whoop? from Confessions of a Fabric Addict

Hi, all!

It's Friday!!  I hope you've had a good week - we actually had some SUNSHINE, and beautiful warm days!  So it's been a good week for me.  Of course, it's supposed to be back in the thirties next week, and they've said the "S" word, but hey, it was 73 and sunny yesterday, so that will keep me going for a while!  

Friday means it's time for us to get our whoop whoop on, and I hope you're ready!  I know I am - with a "squirrel" project - so let's get started ...

I May Have A Scrap Problem - June Results and July Goals! from Confessions of a Fabric Addict

Hi, all!

It seems that June just flew by, doesn't it?  So much going on with the beginning of summer, and that definitely made a difference in my time for working with scraps - but I did make some progress!  I'll show you the small progress first, though...


This was my June goal.  And this was scrap tub "B"...



Oh my goodness was that tub packed full of stuff!  I pressed and cut, pressed and folded, stashed away fabric in color-sorted tubs, and this is where it stood at the end of the month...


So I made a good ...

I May Have a Scrap Problem... Wedges and Denim! from Confessions of a Fabric Addict

Hi, all!

I put a BIG note on my whiteboard to remind me to work on my wedge quilt this week - and it worked!  I did make some progress on it, and I'm really happy with how it's going!


The first thing I did was pin the arcs across the bottom of the quilt, lining up the edges against the raw edge.  


Then I stitched as close to the edge as possible around the inside of the arc.  I had previously pressed under 1/4" on both sides of the arcs.  After finishing the first row, I then ...

I May Have A Scrap Problem... Some Wedge Play! from Confessions of a Fabric Addict

Hi, all!

Where did this week go?  It occurred to me yesterday that I still hadn't had a chance to work on my crescent quilt, so I dropped everything and pulled it out!  If you'll remember, my May challenge was to work with repurposing denim from old jeans.  The background of this quilt is made from large rectangular pieces cut from the front and back legs of jeans, and is gradated by color, from light at the top to dark at the bottom.  The crescents are made from a Make Life bundle I've had hanging around for ...

Make-A-List Monday - Back to the Real World! from Confessions of a Fabric Addict


Hi, all!

After an absolutely gorgeous weekend, it's Monday again, with a whole new week full of days to fill with lots of fun sewing!  Let's see how last week's list went first, though...

1.  Quilt two quilt tops for Heartbuilders.
Done!  These two are so pretty - pieced by Deborah S. and headed out this week!



2.   Work on piecing my new project, a wedge quilt from Christina Cameli's new book.
In progress - I've pieced all the wedges, and also the denim background (made from old jeans).  At least I can see what it will ...

Hi, all!

The week has flown by, and it's finally Friday again!  And you know what that means - it's time for us to get our whoop whoop on!  Spring always makes me want to start new projects, and I've got the beginning of one to share with you today - so let's get started!

*&*&*&*&*&*&*

A few weeks ago, I received my copy of Christina Cameli's new book, Wedge Quilt Workshop.  Oh so many pretty quilts!!  I had a lot of fun in her wedge class at QuiltCon last year, so I knew it would be good ...

Learning QAL - October Goal Setting Link-up from Quilting & Learning

Welcome to the third month of the Learning QAL. I've been learning a lot of things, from dyeing my own fabric to focusing on some free motion quilting (FMQ).

Two eager participants, Em and Mel have joined in the fun. In August Em made a small collage and sewed it into a useful coupon caddy and in September she worked with crumb fabrics and made a great looking zipper pouch.

In September, Mel successfully tried her hand at organic quilting. Everyone learned a lot - from technical details to learning what they liked and didn't like. Thanks so much ...

Learning QAL - September Sum Up from Quilting & Learning

It's that time again. In the next few days we'll find out what participants learned this month as part of the Learning Quilt-A-Long.

My thought for choosing my September goal was to minimize my stress level this month by aiming for something fairly easy to accomplish since I have a quilting deadline in early October. I thought that I would explore and practice a few FMQ sites and try some new things. In hindsight, I was pretty ambitious!

I ended up spending almost all of my time exploring the Wild Quilting course with Christina ...

Lots of projects! from Quilting & Learning

After the hectic pace of the end of August and the new Learning QAL Goal Setting post, I needed a break. I've been slowly working on many projects - mostly those with deadlines as well as the required procrastination project.

Art with Fabric Blog Hop - Fall 2017

This year's theme is Mother Earth, also known as Gaïa.

I just happen to have a lovely reproduction statue of a beautiful Pre-Columbian female figure from Colombia, South America. I'll be writing more about this beauty in a post just before my blog hop date of Wednesday, October 11, 2017. In ...
