First up is the lovely tangible paper patterns, which I have listed in my Etsy shop. They are all printed on quality paper locally and carefully hand packaged by moi.

For the patterns with templates, these have been printed separately to allow you to easily make copies and keep the original in tact if you so wish.

October Blogger Bundle with Kim Lapacek from Needle and Foot

Over the past several weeks, I have had the pleasure of working with Kim Lapacek.  She is the curator of the October Blogger Bundle! Just in case you are not familiar with Kim, she is a talented quilter who blogs at Persimon Dreams. She is also a wife, mom to three sweet girls, business owner (Lapacek’s Orchard) and all around crafter. Kim designs patterns, speaks and teaches on occasion, makes incredible quilts, and she is the creative force behind Project Quilting. Knowing how busy Kim is, I was tickled to see the photo she provided for the blogger bundle ...

paper dolls pattern from easypatchwork

Hi Everyone! Thanks for joining today and reading my blog. I truly appreciate your curiosity and your support.  A couple of years ago, I came across a foundation paper pieced pattern (FPP) from Mary McGuire featured in Quiltmaker's 100 Blocks. I loved the block so much, I redrew it in EQ8 and asked my bee mates to make blocks for a bee quilt. I was quite happy with the result. There

The Best Tools: Brother 10-Needle from Becca's Crazy Projects

A fellow member of the Baltimore Modern Quilt Guild wanted to sell her Brother 10-Needle embroidery machine. I've wanted a multi-needle embroidery machine since I started using my Pfaff Creative Performance more often. A single needle machine is fine if you do designs with few colors, but if you want to make more than one of a thing, or designs with several colors, changing threads can be a full-time job. There are tricks you can use when creating, or combining designs, but you still have to change the thread for every color change. This was a deal I couldn ...

My Delectable Mountains Scrap Quilt is finished! I have thoroughly enjoyed making this quilt and I am pleased to have added another traditional patchwork block to my sewing repertoire. This quilt was inspired by the Rummage Quilt Pattern by Stephanie Dunphy, but I have made a number of changes, including reducing the block size, and alternating the Delectable Mountains quilt block with a Half Square Triangle unit.

Friday from Love Laugh Quilt

This week I made a couple of lap quilts.

Happy color quilts!

I used the stash and the extra scraps.

I added some polka dots.

I dug around the scrap bin.

I did a LITTLE bit of measuring....
Not much.

I admired all that pretty color!!

********
The first quilt features a fabric line from Anthology fabrics.
It measures 50" x 62".

The second quilt features fabric gleaned from my scrap basket
which includes leftovers from various projects
and pieces from some discarded shirts.
It measures 46" x 49"

Both quilts were quilted with a diagonal cross-hatch pattern.

Change is Good! from Butterfly Threads




It's time for me to make some changes! I've felt this coming on for a while but I'm ready to really refocus and make a shift in my priorities. I've been feeling exhausted and over worked for several years now (running my own business!) and then I realized I'm the boss! Wait, what? Oh yeah! I can choose to make changes and my husband has been strongly encouraging me to. I need to do more than think about it...and you know how I love my lists, so here goes!


1. I'm no longer ...

Bright Hopes Quilt - Color My World from Red Pepper Quilts

A Finished Quilt

Bright Hopes Quilt - Color My World | © Red Pepper Quilts 2018 #brighthopesquilt #scrapquilt #patchwork #redpepperquilts

Color, color, everywhere! Fabric is my creative medium of choice and the more colorful my workspace the better. I find it hard to restrain myself and like to put every last fabric scrap to good use. This Bright Hopes quilt was the perfect opportunity to work with both ~ color + fabric scraps.

What a year! from Daisychain Quilter

I have been busy this year making quilts for exhibiting national, so my blog has been neglected. I have also been 'sewing up a storm' for my Etsy shop too.  I love making bags, cushions and bunting.

Although I have not published any posts this year, I have a lot of draft posts that also need to be finished and published.  So now that things here are a little quieter for a while, I thought I would come back to blogging and update it.

You will see some of the items I have made listed on Daisychain Quilter Etsy. I ...

The Latest Updates at Needle & Foot from Needle and Foot

Hi Everyone!  I want to share a change I am implementing at my shop.  I have had so many issues with trying to properly list my products and use the shipping tools provided by Etsy.  I think the tools are great for sellers who usually receive orders for one item at a time. With an order for just one item, the postage is calculated based on the region the item is being shipped to and the weight of the item.  This means if I receive an order for a yard of fabric, the shipping is calculated accurately for my customer ...

It has been a good week! While I do love to challenge myself and my sewing skills I also LOVE to keep it simple. And this week was just that, basic (straight line!) sewing and allowing the color palette and the fabrics to shine.

The Finished Scrappy Apple Core Quilt from Red Pepper Quilts

Scrappy Apple Core Quilt | April 2018 © Red Pepper Quilts #redpepperquilts #applecorequilt #scrapquilt

The Scrappy Apple Core Quilt is finished. (This quilt was made using the acrylic templates provided with the Nickels and Dimes Quilt Pattern by Everyday Quilts). I am so pleased with how it turned out and love that I was able to work out a way to machine piece the quilt top. This quilt may otherwise have remained unfinished. Forever. I do however want to continue to work on my hand piecing skills but intend to start with an easier project. Perhaps a quilt with straight seams only. Slow sewing is so relaxing!

a treat for hard-sewing hands {haul} from Charm About You


Sharing some happy mail delights I've received recently. Grab a cuppa, I have a lot to show you! 
I'm working hard on secret makes so no finishes just yet but it always nice to nosy at people's recommendations and fabric stash additions. And just to be clear none of this is sponsored or affiliated, one item was a gift and the rest I bought myself.

I have been doing a lot of hand sewing; like the demo of the lovely Hexie Kisses pattern by Jen Kingwell (above), embroidery, working on my own epp and hand piecing projects ...

The Finished Scrappy Spool Block Quilt from Red Pepper Quilts

Scrappy Spool Block Quilt - with link to Spool Block Tutorial (with inset seams | © Red Pepper Quilts 2018 #scrapquilt #spoolblocktutorial #sewingtutorial #redpepperquilts

I have lots of photos to share with you of my finished Scrappy Spools Block Quilt. Scrappy quilts continue to be a favorite and I have have loved working on this quilt - from scavenging through my scrap bins and fabric stash, to marking the quarter inch seam allowance on each and every fabric piece, and even sewing the many inset seams. There's something quite relaxing about piecing a repetitive "block" quilt, and once all the blocks are done, so very rewarding.
