Happy Halloween Sewing from easypatchwork

Hello Everyone, Halloween is right around the corner! I am starting to slowly get in the Halloween mood with the fall weather, misty mornings and soups of the season. A new block jumped into my head on Friday and Winnie the Witch was created. She measures 6" x 11". This block is a stand alone foundation paper pieced block (FPP) or can be mixed and matched with the Paper Dolls Mini Collection for

Big Bass Bob- who’s that? from Roxane Lessa Fine Textile Art

 

Please click on the title to read the full post.

Hi Everyone!

Welcome to the new readers!

I have been commissioned to make a fish quilt.  Not just any fish- has to be a big bass fish. But here’s the back story….
My boyfriend is an avid bass fisherman. He has fished with his buddy, Bob for 20 + years.  As a result I have learned way more than I bargained for about bass fishing, :).  Well, as a gift to his buddy, he asked me to make him an art quilt that documents his love for bass fishing.  Also, I ...

Great Fall Class Line Up from Bear Patch Quilting

Bear Patch is such a classy place!  That doesn't have anything to do with society, but it means we love to present classes for our customers.  It's such a great way for like-minded people to sit down and hopefully learn a thing or 2!  We have always tried for a variety of projects:  big, small, handwork, machine techniques, beginner, advanced, morning, afternoon, night and weekends, too!  We try to keep our classes small and friendly for everyone.  Even though our days are numbered, we can't resist the chance to offer a few more learning opportunities.  And sometimes ...

More Logs from Quilting Is More Fun Than Housework

There have been so many pretty log cabin blocks popping up in my blog feed, I thought I would share a photo of a log cabin variation that was recently sent to me by a student in one of my classes.




This quilt was made using my Spin! quilt pattern.  I went down to southern Oregon and taught a couple classes in mid-August and a week later, I received this photo of a finished top.  
How is that for fast!
I really like the orange and yellow color combination!



I don't think I shared this photo of this pretty ...

Hawaiian Miniatures from Roxane Lessa Fine Textile Art

 

Please click on the title to read the full post.

Hi Everyone!

Welcome to the new readers!

When I was a kid growing up in Boston, I remember going to the MFA and seeing the Persian miniature collection. I was so enthralled with the tiny details, the brilliant jeweled colors and the stories they told. Here is an example of one:

So that memory inspired me to create some miniatures of my own.

I like to use little 6″ x 6″ x 1″ canvases to mount small treasures to sell at parties and to give as gifts.  They have been ...

Sunday Stash August 26, 2018 from Quilt Paint Create

No fabric in this week, which is just short of a miracle. There were so many interesting quilts at the AQS show that I forgot to manage my time and didn’t get a chance to shop.
The YLI people didn’t vend, but I was able to find some YLI thread at the Tsuniko inks booth. That’s all I bought at the show. On the way home I found basting spray on clearance at Hobby Lobby.
I also spent money on the class handout fee. The teacher gave us each a spool of WonderFil thread and I won ...

Creating Collages Class from Quilt Paint Create

I’m back from the show and had a great time.
I started on Wednesday with a Trish Stuart class, Creating Collages. It was a great class and she did a really good job of explaining the mechanics of collage. I learned a lot in a short time and finished my collage pear. She was the most positive, supportive teacher I’ve ever had.
I didn’t have the Kaffe Fassett fabric I needed for the class and decided to take what I had rather than buy something else. It felt more relevant to learn the technique using my fabrics ...

Commission is Nearing Completion! from Roxane Lessa Fine Textile Art

 

Please click on the title to read the full post.

Hi Everyone!

Welcome to the new readers!

Yes! The commission of the gate to the South Carolina cemetary is nearing completion. For those of you who like numbers, I have kept track of the hours I put in so far – about 28 from start to finish. Yesterday I put it up on the wall for  damp blocking. This is a process where I pin the quilt at regular intervals and spray it down until it is damp.

Once it is dry, it is pretty flat and there are no more ...

FanFaire Block of the Month Class with Krista Moser from Snowy Days Quilting

quilt class with Krista Moser

Last weekend was a blast. The local guild brought in Krista Moser for an absolutely fabulous class. I attended with my mom, and we had such fun! From left to right in the picture above is Mom, Krista, and myself.

We kicked everything off with a trunk show Thursday night. Krista's energy is contagious, and her stories are great. This was my favorite quilt that she shared - Woven Jewelbox. The modern design really appeals to me.

I also really liked this quilt. The striped fabric gives an illusion of curves and movement. It hasn't been published quite yet ...

Sunday Stash August 5, 2018 from Quilt Paint Create

No change to any of the numbers.
I’ve mostly done hand work this week, finishing the square with the moon and stars.
moon and starsThe background fabric is hand painted and stamped cotton sateen. I followed the spiral shape of the stamp to embroider the moon using a linked chain stitch.
I started the quilt in a Rose Hughes class in July 2015. The class theme was learning to embellish quilts with embroidery. A couple hours in I realized she didn’t intend to show us anything beyond straight stitch variations. I can appreciate a good straight stitch, but I had ...

It’s HERE!! It’s Finally HERE!! from Lisa H Calle's Blog

“Ain’t No Junk:  Trunk Tell All (TTA)” is LIVE!! Can you feel my happy dance?

Here are some Q&A:

When is the Facebook LIVE event?

The Facebook LIVE event will be held on July 26th at 1pm EST. 

 

 

What exactly is a Trunk Tell All (TTA)?? 

Initially, the concept behind placing my trunkshow “No Junk In the Trunk” on my website was to allow those individuals who were unable to attend this event an alternative to simply missing out all together. However, I soon came to the realization that when I host a trunk show the duration is ...
