Seasonal Flair Adds to the Home from Quilted Joy

There are people out there that decorate for every holiday. They even have “fall” and “spring” decorations that keep their home ever changing and fresh. I wish I was that person. I manage to decorate for Christmas, but not much more. If I could keep it simple, I would probably do a better job of it. One way to add a touch of seasonal flair to your decor is with a lap quilt. All you have to do is dig it out and throw it on the couch. Now that’s something I can do!

Lumberjack Aaron Fabric from Brown Bird Designs Quilts

Ahhhhhh!!! Look at this quilt! I love, love, love it!!! This quilt has been on my list of makes for soooo long. It feels wonderful to have this finished. The pattern is called Legendary, which is the perfect name for it. Seeing Bigfoot on a quilt makes me smile and laugh. It stirs my imagination. As I drove up Mount Lemmon (here in Tucson, AZ) to take photos of this quilt, I envisioned Bigfoot frolicking through the forest and peeking out over the rocks. The fabric I used makes this quilt even more spectacular. It is called Lumberjack Aaron. In ...

CHRISTMAS IN JULY - PROJECT 2 from Kwilty Pleasures


Its a Cotton and Steel Christmas in July project!
Simply Modern Christmas by Cindy Lammon
I got this book last year as a gift in the
Instagram  #getyourquiltywishesgrante
(and its a signed copy)

I have been collecting Cotton and Steel fabrics,
Tinsel and Garland lines, for some time. 


I selected a soft gray background from my stash.
White seemed stark, even though the blocks are SNOWBALLS!


This book is packed with great patterns.
But Snowball Games was my choice.


This project began...as a lap quilt.
I thought it would be a fun sofa throw.


Lots of 2 1/2 ...

Modern Fat Quarter Friendly Stash Busting Quilt Pattern Ribbon Candy from Quilt Addicts Anonymous

With 24 fat quarters, our new fat quarter friendly pattern Ribbon Candy (part of the Stashin’ with Stephanie series) will definitely make a dent in your stash!

This quilt has a little bit of everything. We are strip piecing, sewing at an angle to create a pattern that looks complicated without too much fuss and no templates.

For this quilt I used Alison Glass Holiday, and I love how it kind of looks like candy cane stripes twisting around. But you could certainly use anything in your stash to make this happen. Just make sure you pick a fabulous neutral ...

Midweek: not finished yet -- but another start! from With Strings Attached

I'm about 3/4 through with quilting the bullseye stars   It is not going as well as I'd like. I didn't press the top flat enough.  I will wash and dry it on hot in hopes that it will  shrink up enough to make the bubbly quilting less obvious.

Rather than continue to frustrate myself I looked at my quilting to-do list. At the top:  AAUW Christmas Quilt.  (I made the list at random, not in alphabetical order, but AAUW came first.)  I make two raffle quilts to benefit my AAUW branch fundraising. One is at the ...

Finished a 2010 BOM! from Mama Spark's World

BAM!  Another WIP can be crossed off the list.   Not that any of you even remember this quilt, LOL.  I participated in the Christmas BOM at the Fat Quarter Shop in 2010.   They were VERY generous with their fabric and I was able to eek out 2 blocks for each kit they sent!  I made one for me and one for my friend, Liz that does a lot of my quilting for me.  She got hers quilted right up

Lakeside Star: a crimson version from Carried Away Quilting


In February I introduced you to my new fat quarter pattern, Lakeside Star. This bold, dynamic quilt makes a statement with thoughtful color and print placement. My original quilt showcased a blue, butterscotch and taupe color combination. I recently completed another Lakeside Star top featuring crimson, brown and taupe prints. I’m doing my final pressing and then she’ll be off to the quilter!


This crimson version of Lakeside Star could be considered a winter or Christmas quilt, as some of the prints have a subtle seasonal motif.  But I think the overall effect is such that the quilt ...

TRUCKIN AWAY! from Kwilty Pleasures

During the holidays I made a couple pillows using the fun 
Vintage Truck/Christmas Tree fabric.

I had some red and green grunge 
and some buffalo plaids...
Economy blocks seemed perfect.


I quilted the fronts of the pillows
and found a black print in my stash that worked well 
for the envelope / back of the pillows.


I love these pillows!


Here's a good view of the envelope back of the pillow


My front porch was decorated with this truck theme




And I have a lot of blocks left over.
I will be making a lap size quilt for my ...

Christmas Quilt Finished: One Down. Two To Go. from Wedding Dress Blue

This quilt is the result of the Have A Jolly Little Christmas Quiltalong hosted by Sew Fresh Quilts a year ago.  All her patterns are wonderful and easier to build than you might think.

DSC01277

I did add a few different blocks and created my own layout. It is 78″ square. Don’t you love the look of a scrappy border?

DSC01280

And finally got it quilted.

And bound.

And finished…two more to go before January 1.  Got to get stitching!

New pattern: Welcome Home Wreath from Carried Away Quilting

When I became an empty nester, preparing for the holidays took on a whole new meaning. As I laid out the Christmas decorations last year, I thought about my kids coming home from college, and how I wanted them to feel the hug of home the minute they walked through the door.

Nothing quite says “Welcome Home” like a holiday wreath, so I’ve designed a wall hanging that would evoke a sense of love and homecoming. For all who enter our home, especially my adult children, I hope this quilt reminds them that they are loved and most welcome ...

Weekly update: a finish, a flimsy, and clue 5 from With Strings Attached

After all the activity in the first half of the month it was nice to have a less-busy week.  I had two executive committee meetings (one of which was the last since I'm going off that particular board after 16 years). Rotary meets for Thursday breakfast (last meeting until January).  Pat J's retirement party on Wednesday was a library family reunion with many retired staff coming back to celebrate her 25 years of service. 

We saw not one, but two movies this week. (It's nice to go to the matinee showing.) We saw The Favourite on Monday ...

Red and Green OP 6, 7, 8 from Virtual Quilter

Three designs today, and they all look warm and cozy.

Love the second one!

Some tricky block placements … look at the row of three blocks across the top. One is the corner of the light coloured border, the ones each side are sort of part of the corner section.

Not many sleeps until Christmas, and after a very late start I have most of the Christmas decorations up.

A Christmas Peacock Party from Wendy's Quilts and More

Thank you for all the lovely comments on my Gingerbread Needlework Shop.  I know it didn't have to be finished for Christmas, but I had set myself a goal, and I don't like admitting defeat.  If it wasn't finished now, it might have sat unfinished for another whole year!

It's summer time in New Zealand, so we don't need Christmas quilts, but I did enjoy making this one a few years ago.

Oh! Christmas Tree - pattern by Wendy Williams

Last year I made this Holiday Patchwork Forest quilt from crazy scraps in my drawers.

Christmas Patchwork Quilt from Needle and Foot

My newest daughter-in-law has a December birthday, just a few days before Christmas actually.  This year I decided to make her a quilt.  Some time back, I had given Ian a lap quilt for their couch but thought it would be fun to make a Christmasy quilt for Shar to use in winter months.

The cute white square is from the Pixie Noel line.

The plan was built around the need for a quick quilt and this cute package of Pixie Noel charms I won in a giveaway several years ago over at Silly Mama Quilts. It was not the ...

A Lighter Shade of Christmas 5, 6 from Virtual Quilter

This would be a great table topper!

Wonder if I can make it fade a bit more …..

Now it looks like the first version might look after a lot of Christmas Days have been and gone.

Instant vintage item!

Annie Clover at Christmas 10, 11, 12 from Virtual Quilter

A Christmas quilt or tablecloth for a subdued Christmas theme.

Even more subdued, but love that  block design links together when used in a line.

A different colouring … and love the light.

EQ and Me at Christmas 5, 6 from Virtual Quilter

It is that time of the year when I usually have Christmas decorations escaping from storage, but that part of the season is on hold until after a garage sale next weekend.

However, the virtual quilts can start escaping anytime I choose, and I choose today.

These designs would pass on a bed all year round, but they can also be on the bed when the stockings are hanging, the trees are decorated, and all the other trimmings are out of storage.

Winter Flurries: a finished quilt top from Carried Away Quilting

Here in the United States, the Thanksgiving holiday has come and gone. In the Kelvington household, we cooked our turkey, enjoyed time spent with family, shopped a little, and started a tiny bit of Christmas decorating. I also managed to finish up this cute quilt top from the “Winter Flurries” mystery sew along with Fort Worth Fabric Studio.



This was such a fun project! I’ve never participated in a mystery sew along before, and it was intriguing to make a few blocks each week, all the while wondering what the final product would look like!


In week one we ...
