A Lovely Rain and other oddities... from Quilting Lots Moore Designs

We have been blessed to have had three good doses of rain this month, which is quite unusual for Hawkes Bay.  We spend most of our spring/summer/autumn praying for rain, as we are traditionally a very dry area with hot summers - well, our definition of hot anyway!  At the moment our lawns are green and still need mowing, much to DH's disgust.  However, the garden does look so fresh after good rains, and we don' t have to stand out there and water.

This day lily is so gorgeous.  It is actually a more rusty red than ...

There are Several “Popabilities”! from Lisa H Calle's Blog


I am about to mention a tool that I am sure that I have made reference to previously.   However, if by any small chance you missed the initial reveal of this tool; I will share with you one more time just how much I LOVE my  Corner Pop tool .

During the last couple of months I’ve been in my studio dedicating time to a special project, along with squeezing in time for my four-year quilt.  The Corner Pop tool and technique has made a huge difference in creating this design.

The photograph below shows the beginnings of the design ...

The One Where Hard Things Were Made Simple from knot what it seams

Last week I had been thinking about the post I was going to do about the zig zag quilt. I told myself ‘Don’t worry, you have plenty of time. You don’t have to write it until Monday.’ It wasn’t until the end of the week that I realised that hey! It had been Monday! So if you’re wondering why there wasn’t anything last week, it’s because my procrastination skills are so epic that I can even alter what day of the week it is.

So this zig zag quilt… I love making quilts with ...

Solids For My Stash from Hobbies Up To Here

I allowed myself some freedom to shop recently when I took a trip to a local quilt shop with a good friend. I went in search of solids or low volume fabrics, especially if I could find a good deal on them. I did come home with a grey charm pack and two layer cakes … Continue reading Solids For My Stash

A Different Kind of January from Heart Desire Creations



The sand is so white and fine – just beautiful!


Tried something new this year – came to Florida for the month of January. How lucky that the first week was one of the coldest on record (major sarcasm here).  It was, however, much colder back home.  We knew it wouldn’t be warm beach weather here in Pensacola, but jackets, hats, and gloves for our beach walks?! That’s okay – I came prepared with sewing machine and a project.  Hah! First week and the machine is out of order.  Looks like the screw that holds the needle is broken and won ...

Another Fabric Stash Friday from Pibble Pulling Threads

**This Blog was originally posted on***

The day has come again!  It’s Fabric Stash Friday!  Yay!  First off, I want to say that all of our issues from earlier this week, reported here have been resolved, and the house is back to normal and running smoothly, thankfully!

I have a FINSIH for this week!  Today I finished and am ready to send out a Mario Quilt for my Etsy Shop.  It was nice to be sewing (finally for the first time this year!) and generally getting back to normal.  Since I have a finish, that means ...

My Blogger Bundle with Needle & Foot from Goer

I was so excited when my friend Bernie asked me to create a Blogger Bundle from her shop. As a quilt blogger there's been a tiny voice in the back of my head whenever I've seen other blogger bundles that it would be so much fun to put one together.

I set out to shop for my fabrics in Bernie's lovely fabric shop, Needle & Foot, Fine Fabrics. There are a lot of great prints to choose from like these adorable frogs and this fun rainbow confetti. And my daughter would love these sassy cats. In the end ...

New Year's Resolutions, 2018: I Resolve to Buy More Fabric. And I Resolve to Drink More Wine. from Cheeky Cognoscenti

...And I'm not just saying that to be funny, either, y'all -- I am SERIOUS.  I have made up my mind, my resolve is firm, and no one's Sew Your Stash goals or Fiscal Frugal Fishy Business is going to stop me, either.  I am going to buy more fabric in 2018, and I'm going to do it ON PURPOSE.

I wanted to have my new Tabby Mountain quilt all cut out by today, laid out on my empty design wall, and be sewing the triangles into rows this afternoon while listening to the Poulenc and Verdi ...

New Year, Old W.i.P.s from Mama Love Quilts

Dear Reader,

How in the world are you? I hope 2018 is off to a good start for you.

I’ve been looking back on 2017 and wondering how to make 2018 better. By better, I mean more stitching! With the combination of work and parenting, I was so exhausted that I didn’t get much quilting done. I hope to change that in 2018.

I’ve decided that a good way to start would be to tackle the growing pile of work in progress (w.i.p.s). I start every new year with plans to whittle down my ...

Stash report January 7, 2018 from Making A Lather

I ended 2017 in the hole 8 3/4 yards for my fabric stash report. I finished enough quilts and gave away 90 + yards to say that I used 354 1/2 yards of fabric.
I purchased or brought home 363 1/4 yards of fabric and I didn't really have any place to put it. So some of it got sent to the attic to live. How sad. I would like to say I will do better next year at not buying or adding fabric. But that was my intention last year. I am a sucker for ...

» Charm About You

I made something just for me! And I love it. A few years ago I made an embroidered patchwork notebook cover and now I'm wondering why it took me so long to make another version. They really are fun to make and a fabric cover feels so lovely, it's also a good way to protect your book. After browsing the internet I decided to use this tutorial by Charlotte Scott, I was inspired by her embellishments and the measurements she gives worked perfectly! It's also an interesting construction. I didn't use any interfacing though because my ...

During the Blizzard from Terificreations's Weblog

As the snow fell, the wind howled, and The Lord of the Rings played in the background I took the last few stitches in purple on this version of the Impractical Color Wheel. As those stitches completed, the idea for the next one developed, I made notes in my planner so I’d remember, and went… Continue reading During the Blizzard

bias, bias, and more bias from Texas Quilting

20180104_205358.jpgI had 4 quilting projects that were started in 2017 but not finished and my goal was to knock out at least 2 of the tops.  I finished those 2 by the end of the year so I had a choice to either quilt one or both of those, or to continue trying to knock down my WIP tops.

The 4th quilt is one that I had planned to sew with my sister via FaceTime or something similar but I don’t think she’s really interested in ever completing that one.  I’ve set that one aside for a ...

To England We Will Go! from Telling Stories Through the Needle's Eye

As a child, I (Kara) lived in England for three years, and since then, I have always loved everything British. My parents bought a VW camper, and we explored the British Isles with enthusiasm. When my husband mentioned that he had to go to the UK for work, I immediately began to look for things to do in that particular area. Of course, my first search was for quilt shops, and I discovered Bee Crafty; a quilt shop just outside of Huntingdon. I navigated easily through their website and much to my delight, found a paper-piecing workshop held on one ...

retreat prep from Frayed Edge

I'm going with friends on a quilting retreat on Sunday, and I've been planning what to take along to work on during the 4 days I'm there.  Some new things, some old things.  It does take some planning so I have the correct fabric, specialty rulers, threads in the right colors, zippers, interfacing, hardware for bags, etc., etc.  It's not a chore to me, I like it as long as I have the time for it.

So this was going to be a post about what I'm taking along and how I get it ready ...
