Guild BOM 2019 from Stitchin at Home



It's one of my favourite seasons 'guild season'. My guild had there first meeting of the year on Monday Sept 9th. I look forward to catching up with fellow members and seeing what they've made over the summer.
It is also the time I introduce the new BOM for the year, this is the fifth year I have designed the BOM. My guild is more traditional than modern and as such more members join in making the BOM if it is a more traditional setting.

2019-20 BOM
This years quilt I made in my favourite colour...green. I ...

My Favorite Quilt Block Blog Hop from Quilted Delights

When Carla of Creatin' in the Sticks asked hoppers to join her Favorite Quilt Block Blog Hop I signed up right away. I love playing along with blog hops and challenges.



I create some of my favorite projects during these events and I loved having an excuse to work with one of my favorite quilt blocks.

I have several favorite blocks and wasn't sure which one to pick at first, so I asked my husband, "What is my favorite quilt block?"   He answered within seconds,  "The nine patch."



Later I asked my daughter the same question, she also said ...

Star Light Star Bright - Island Batik August Challenge from Quilted Delights



This August, half the Island Batik Ambassadors were Showcasing the newest collections in the Beat the Heat Blog Hop.  If you missed any, you can still go back and check them out HERE and see beautiful inspiration for all the new Island Batik lines coming out right now.


The other half of the Ambassadors, those of us with fabric lines coming out a little later, were given our own challenge to create a Star Light, Star Bright quilt.  The quilt had to be lap size or larger and showcase any star block we chose.


I had lots if different Star ...

Red is a Neutral becomes... finish from Fleur de Lis Quilts and Accessories

Another Red Feather. So named because, though there were other titles in the running, this quilt wanted red feather quilting. And more red feathers. And more red feathers. In fact, every inch of red is quilted in feathers, with a few scrolls to break up the monotony. 
Detail of the back...just enough
pattern to make the worst of
the quilting less noticeable.



This one serves in all manner of challenges: the Cotton Quilters' Guild block-of-the-month, in which different quilters presented a block or two from January through July, and as the AHIQ "Red Is a Neutral" challenge. 


With encouragement ...

Wanderings Fabric Tour from A Little Bit Biased

Hello! Hello!
Today I get to share a recent finish I made out of a new fabric line called 
Wanderings by Poppie Cotton.


This is my second project with the new company Poppie Cotton and I am such a fan!  The sweet, beautiful, traditional fabrics in soft colors really speak to me.  And just a hint for what's to come...I said yes to a third project with their third line!  I only say yes to lines I really love and I think their lines keep getting better and better!


Wanderings is a sweet, feminine line of fabrics that ...

Jelly Roll Race - 4th Finish Q3 2019 FAL from Quilted Delights


I'm on a roll!  I finished the quilting and binding on this Jelly Roll Race quilt the other day. 
It is now ready for snuggling under. 



This makes my 4th finish for the third quarter of the 2019 Finish-A-Long.  


I started this one in June when I was showing some quick quilting ideas to the class I teach. 



I knew this one would be a quick finish since I had the top done at the beginning of the quarter.



With a plan to quilt a quick all over design on it, I put it on this quarter's list ...

Urban Cottage Giant Star Quilt from A Little Bit Biased

Hi friends!  Today I'm excited to share with you a quilt I finished up over the weekend.  
It's a new favorite and for sure one of the easiest quilts I've ever made!


From the moment I saw the line Urban Cottage by Urban Chiks for Moda, 
I knew I had to have some!  It goes with my sewing room perfectly!


I ordered a fat quarter bundle plus some yardage and now I have two projects made with this line.
[Click HERE to see the other project, my Urban Cottage Tied Blanket.]

Here's my Giant Star Quilt ...

Half Sqaure Triangle Quilt and 3rd finish for Q3 FAL from Quilted Delights


This quilt is the second quilt I taught in the beginner quilt class I teach. This is the version I sewed along with the students.

I wanted the class to be able to tackle Half Square Triangles since they are used in so many different quilt blocks.

What better way to learn them, than to make a whole bunch of them and turn them into a quilt.  We used 5 inch squares and the two at time method to create our HSTs for our quilts.



I like splitting my yardage in half for backings and adding a coordinating strip in ...

Artsy Fartsy Island Batik Ambassador Challenge from Quilted Delights


The July challenge for Island Batik Ambassadors is titled Artsy Fartsy and we were challenged to use three different weights of Aurifil thread to create a fabric work of art.


This was a fun challenge that focused on the threads first instead of the fabric.  It is like buying a cool pair of shoes and then searching for the perfect outfit to go with them.


I was sent some dark purple and peach Aurifil thread in my first Ambassador box and then I received a light purple and an orange a little later.  I must say it was a struggle ...

That 70's Halloween Quilt - 1st Finish Q3 FAL from Quilted Delights


I know it is supposed to be Christmas in July not Halloween in July, but I finished my first UFO for the third Quarter of the 2019 Finish-A-Long and had to post it.






This one was started in October 2014 when I was doing the Black Cat Crossing Blog Hop.  




It is a pattern called "That 70's Quilt" from the book Strip Savvy by Kate Henderson.


I had made several projects for Black Cat Crossing hop and this was a final project I started with some of the leftovers of the zig zag quilt.  I didn't have ...

Dinosaurs Are For Girls from Flying Parrot Quilts

I’ve been holding off for the right moment to share this quilt, and since it’s featured in this month’s issue of Curated Quilts (which has a theme of “Well Said”, featuring quilts that include words or have a message), now seems like a good time.

It’s no secret that I’m totally into dinosaurs—why, I even have two velociraptors for pets.

I was giving out dinosaur temporary tattoos at an event, and someone wanted to know if I’d mind terribly if she asked for four. She had five children, and four sons, and they ...

Quilts of Valor Blog Hop Featuring Freedom by Island Batik from Quilted Delights


Welcome to the final day of the Quilts of Valor Blog Hop, hosted by Jen of Dizzy Quilter


The mission of the Quilts of Valor Foundation is to cover service members and veterans touched by war with comforting and healing Quilts of Valor.


 This past November I happened upon a Quilt of Valor Ceremony during the city's yearly Jingle Bell Market.  I had never been to one, so I sat down to see what it was all about.


I had heard of Quilts of Valor and knew of their mission, but had never actually witnessed anyone getting a quilt ...

Cottage Garden Wall Hanging from A Little Bit Biased

I was just looking back through my Instagram feed and realized I started this project in February 2016!?!  Wow.  Three and a half years from the time I started this project to the time I finished and blogged about it.  It was just one of those projects that was great to stuff in my purse and take on the go.  So I would take it on vacation or to soccer games so I could stitch during warm-ups.  I actually finished this several months ago though...just took a while for me to actually get some photos and sit down to ...

Dora and Diego ~~ a finish! from Fleur de Lis Quilts and Accessories


Some time ago I pulled a variety of novelty fabrics and started sewing them together in whatever fashion they'd agree to. Some of them had to be urged into a spot. Others had to be throttled into place.

This morning I searched for a backing and discovered this piece of Dora the Explorer fabric. It's left over from little skorts that I made for Catherine or Sophie who are nine and eight years old, so it's been a while. It was just big enough for backing and binding.
I got a little bored while quilting and decided ...

One Block Wonder - Blue Heron Panel from Quilted Delights


This is my second One Block Wonder using a panel 



I saw this Panel made into a OBW on the One Block Wonder Quilt Forum Facebook Group and knew I had to make one.


 The first panel I used last fall on the Halloween OBW  had a border around the panel.
This time I wanted to skip the border and have the hexagons blend with the panel. 


I cut my original strips 2 3/4 inches and got a lot of small hexagons to work with. 
I used almost all of them for this quilt.


Finding the perfect layout took ...

Rainbow 4-Patch Baby Quilt from A Little Bit Biased

 Hi friends!  It's been a minute and I've been meaning to share a few quilts that I finished a while ago.
Today I want to share a fun, little baby quilt I made that is a little out of the norm for me.  


Back in October, I participated in a block swap for these low-volume/bright 4-Patches.
The individual squares were cut at 3" to make 5" (finished) 4-Patches.


A swap for 4-Patches was really fun to participate in because 
they're so quick and easy to make but there are so many possibilities 
of what you can ...
