A MINI ADVENTURE from That's Sew Kerry

When I Met Tula! 

I don't think I ever told you about the time I met Tula Pink - major fan girl moment, I was really impressed with myself that I actually managed to get whole sentences out and they even made some sense!






There's always that worry that if you meet an idol or someone you greatly admire, they may not quite live up to expectations etc, but she really did! Tula was so kind and down to earth, she walked around the room before hand, talking to everyone, having a little sit down looking at the projects ...

KonMari Your Stash! How to fold your entire stash … fat quarters, yards, garment fabric & more … from Quilt Addicts Anonymous

Last year we released two videos on how I fold and organize my fabric stash. You loved it, but many of you wanted to just see the folding.

So I’ve recreated a supercut of both videos, that gets right down to how to fold your fabric so it can be stored vertically so you can see everything you have at a glance, and can fit the most fabric in possible in your space.

With this method I am easily able to fit 12.5 yards in basket the size of a shoe box. Plus everything looks neat, tidy and ...

The Quilter's Field Guide to Color ~ Context from Charm About You

Bear paw quilt block surrounded by fabrics used to sew the block

This is not just any book about colour, this is The Quilter's Field Guide to Color by Rachel Hauser.  I am not exaggerating when I say that this book is a game changer for me. I have learnt so much from reading it and not only through the practical advice Rachel gives but the actual EXPERIENCE of working through the exercises in the book. It's so much more than just information about colour (although it has got lots of that), it is packed full of genuinely helpful topics around colour. With excellent examples, tips and exercises to get ...

Pattern Hack from Daisychain Quilter

I really enjoy making a flat zipper case.  I have made a lot over the year to sell at craft fairs.
So it was one of the first patterns written for Bon Couture Designs.  At Bon Couture Designs, we have decided that we need to make some new samples for our social media platforms.
I made this smaller zipper case to keep all my drawing pens safe when I am out and about and to take away to France in the summer.  I love to do quick sketches of places, floral and beach inspirational things when I am on holiday ...

Projects for the New Year from Michelle's Romantic Tangle

It does not feel like ten days have passed since I unwrapped these on Christmas. How did those days slip away so quickly? 

I've got a stack of kits for the new year and I'm struggling with whether to start European Bistro or Maggie the Messmaker now...or to wait for Stitch Maynia which was the original plan. 


I've also got a pretty new stack of Halloween prints that I can picture as gorgeous project bags. There's going to be fussy cutting and careful choice making and that's what kept me from plunging into the ...

fabric and day off frolics from Charm About You

I'm gearing up to prepare for next year, despite this definitely being the time of year where I feel like hibernating! It's time to make plans, thinking about what next year will bring and sorting out sewing projects. I'm hoping to get things in order over the Christmas break, sorting out my sewing stuff ready for a fresh start in 2020. Recently there have been a few stash additions, I've been out in Manchester stocking up and enjoying cheese toasties, and finally sneaking some project finishes in!

As I continue to work on my Manx Log ...

Ditsy Print from Daisychain Quilter

I really love this fabric but it is getting harder to find it in the shops or at craft shows. I have the feeling it is being discontinued, which is a shame as it is a lovely fabric.
So if I find it whilst at a show do not be surprise if you spot me buying a bolt.

Sunday Stash December 8, 2019 from Quilt Paint Create

No change in the numbers this week.
I spent most the week sorting and organizing my fabric. Fabrics are now together by color or type (ex. Christmas). Pieces too small to use for anything but scrap quilts went in a box. I’ll have to deal with those later.
scraps
Nothing motivates you to stop buying fabric more than handling every piece you own. I found things I forgot I had and others I don’t remember buying. There was fabric stored with a pattern (helpful) and coordinating fabrics stored together without a pattern (not helpful). It was a bit overwhelming ...

Artquilt Improv with Intention from Carol Lyles Shaw

Here's a peek into my process for making this commission quilt.

a (somewhat) needed sunday stash from Charm About You



I bought fabric at Festival of Quilts and the Stitch Gathering - supporting those artists and shops I love - but there's not been much fabric shopping going on and that's mostly down to the fact that I want to be using what I have. There are plenty of times I do 'fake shopping', adding beautiful fabric to online baskets but I don't hit 'checkout' because I know that it will ultimately end up in the piles and piles of fabric I already have. The decision to buy fabric now has to be because I need it for a ...
