Holiday Gifts at Free Motion Mavericks from Quilting & Learning

Welcome to Week 360 of Free Motion Mavericks. I feel like I've been avoiding it long enough - like a groundhog who pops out of his den and finds that snow is on the ground and Christmas and the holidays are almost here! Yikes...unlike the groundhog, there's no going back to sleep now!

A Bit More Retrospection (Bonnie Hunter Designs) from TheEclecticAbuela

As I was looking back at my Bonnie Hunter Mystery quilts (see previous post), I thought it would be interesting to remind myself of the other BH patterns I have made. I have included  Bonnie's name for the pattern and my name for individual quilts [in brackets], if they differed. The year indicated was the year that I completed the project.

Carolina Chain (2015)

Patches and Pinwheels (2015)


Bricks and Stepping Stones [AKA Autumn Path] (2015)


These were three of my first efforts. I was afraid of the small pieces, so I made the units a bit bigger than ...

Christmas quilting for decoration or gifts from Pieced Brain

Christmas quilting for decoration or gifts

Do you like Christmas quilting for decoration or gifts? Here is an idea to turn the blocks you have already made into a finished project!

You saw this quilt before it was quilted and bound (click here for the post), where I worked with 12″ blocks I had made to test quilt patterns. It has become part of my work process: test patterns using similar fabrics so that, one day, I can turn those blocks into a quilt.

It reminds me of the “leaders and enders” process, where you begin and end chain-piecing with scraps of fabrics that you then ...

Sunday Stash July 4, 2021 from Quilt Paint Create

Happy 4th to everyone in the United States! Gotta love the long weekend with extra time to relax.

No fabric in, but fabric out for the pillow.

After two finishes last week, I’m not motivated to work on the next thing. Instead I looked online and found a couple patterns that will work with one charm pack. Pulled the background fabric too. Now I need to make a decision and get cutting.

I bought the charm pack a few years ago at the AQS show. I love that the line has that vintage Christmas feel. No sense letting ...

sparkle top from Making A Lather

After considering adding another row to the Christmas sparkle quilt  a free pattern found here. I made more blocks and added to the top before counting it done. But, now, I need to make the decision to add borders. I have plenty of fabric. IT doesn't seem big on the library floor, but, it does at home when I lay it out to decide.

I am always impatient to visit my favorite greenhouse in the Spring. And as a warning to be patient, it was only 47 degrees. We bought asparagus, cabbage, onions, and Jasmine. I have never seen ...

to do: sparkle from Making A Lather

My Friday group met and I worked on Christmas sparkle UFO .  The instructions had me making corner pieces for each of the 9 blocks. I think the block using just these pieces would be great as well.

I was looking forward to trying a block to see what it would look like. I was surprised at how big it was.  

These blocks are huge 24 - 25 inches and there are only 9 of them. I used Christmas fabrics, but, I think I would like it with shirt fabrics.

Christmas sparkle   a free pattern found here is part of my ufo ...

I can’t believe I forgot to write a post about the quilt Deck the Halls that I designed for Dear Stella Fabrics. I worked with their collection Sparkle All the Way but it would look great with any of their Holiday fabric lines (I love “Baby it’s Cold Outside”. No, wait… so many options!).

Deck the Halls measures 53-1/2″ x 64″ – a perfect lap quilt size. The blocks are large ...

I have many large Christmas quilts and was looking for something I could hang on a wall or use as a throw. So, I designed the Tree of Joy Christmas quilt pattern.

Sunday Stash October 13, 2019 from Quilt Paint Create

No fabric added this week.
I finished the second pillowcase for another yard plus some out. I made them longer because standard pillowcases are too short for our pillows.
Various commitments this week took precedence over creative time. Next week there will be more opportunities to hang out in the sewing room.
Fabric Added: 58.2
Fabric Used: 21.75 yards
Net Fabric In: 36.45 yards
How did you do this week?
