✿ tooth fairy dresden ✿ from Charm About You

My youngest recently had her first wobbly tooth. I asked her if she wanted to help me pick fabrics out to make a tooth fairy cushion and she was very excited. Lois is very into pink and glitter and flowers. We thought about colour combinations and she said she liked the colours on her dress:

So we used that as a starting point, pulling out prints from my stash and she would give a yes or no. Once we had a few prints she got selective and basically chose every print that had a flower on it.

To let those ...

London Calling with Bari J.'s Bloomsbury from Art Gallery Fabrics-The Creative Blog


For our latest collection, we're transporting back in time to the early 1900s in London, England. In the west end of the city, lies a district called "Bloomsbury" that was (and still is) a fashionable residential area where various intellectual and cultural events took place. During the turn of the century, a group of artists and writers gathered in this district and called themselves "The Bloomsbury Group." English writer Virginia Woolf was one of the most notable members of this group. The other members included Leonard Woolf, Vanessa Bell, E.M. Forster, Lytton Strachey, Roger Fry, Clive Bell, John ...

template fun from Making A Lather

I grabbed a few spikey pieces to sew together using the bloc loc templates. They are small and will finish at 2 1/2 inches square. They are very cute and easy to do. I cut mine from small leftover scrap pieces. I need to cut the other pieces I need so that I can see a star together.

Usually, I avoid trimming down, if I can, but, with this template it is easy and I end up with a perfect block.

I used the florabunda blocks as leader/ender  as I was sewing. I made three from this floral ...

4 patches from Making A Lather

I need 512 - 4 patches for sand castle quilt - a quiltville pattern. I am using them as leader/ enders for other stitching. I have only made 200 and I need more. My bucket was looking empty, and, I needed more variety.

I thought this was a good reason to dig through the 1 1/2 inch strip bin, and strip piece the odd stuff.
Now, I need time at the accuquilt to get sets of twosies cut, and then, I can mindlessly sew more tiny 4 patches. I am guessing I have not made enough even yet, but, it will ...

progress from Making A Lather

From pieces and parts, I am slowly making 72 florabunda blocks. I am mostly cutting the old florals if I come upon them in sorting other scraps. I need a 3 1/2 in strip to make the HSTs and a 2 inch strip for the 4 patches. If I find a piece that has that much fabric, I cut it, and stack it in the box. Finding the yellows isn't as easy. And I don't have that many yellows in my stash, it is time to shop for more. Bummer:).

I had enough for 3 of this ...

florabunda from Making A Lather

While I was clearing the cutting table yet again, I found a small baggie of these floral fabrics. They were all less than a fat quarter, and I didn't remember bringing them home on purpose. I am guessing it was gifted to me( the crazy lady who likes scraps). All the florals together reminded me of a quilt on my maybe someday list. A Bonnie Hunter quilt called florabunda. It is a free quilt on her site. I have always loved florals and I love yellow, it seemed like a perfect match,

I grabbed a stack of yellows and ...

Anita’s Vintage Hankie Quilt from Quilted Joy

Anita is quite the piecer, just a few weeks ago I shared her Sunny Skies quilt with you. Today I have another quilt by Anita but this one has a totally different feel.

Anita made a beautiful Vintage Hankie quilt and brought it to Angela Huffman for machine quilting. She needed to find the perfect backing fabric and quilting design for it.

How sweet is her vintage hankie quilt? Anita said this was one of her UFOs (UnFinished Objects) sitting in a closet for a long time. She put it away after piecing it because she simply didn’t know what to do with it.

When she dropped the top off at the shop she still needed a backing fabric. She was struggling over what color the fabric should ...

LeMoyne Stars from Tracey from Quilted Joy

Take a look at Tracey’s beautiful LeMoyne star quilt! It had all of us swooning in the shop while it was here.

LeMoyne Star Quilt

What do you think of the way she framed the main LeMoyne star with partial stars? I haven’t seen a variation like that before. Does anyone know if this particular version has it’s own name? Let me know in the comments section below!

LeMoyne Star Quilt

It has such a lovely vintage feel, especially with the floral prints for the main stars and the solids around them. There were so many ways to quilt this, and as you ...

Our Renters Tackle Custom Quilting from Quilted Joy

During all of our longarm rentals, we provide renters with their choice of Omni thread and paper pantographs. For the majority of our renters that’s exactly what they want to finish their quilts. But there are some folks who want to do a little more with their quilting. For some, the pantographs are too constricting and they want to play more with the quilting. Here’s a few renters who gave their quilts the custom treatment.

Isn’t Pat’s quilt striking? The colors and the pattern really grab your attention. Pat could have easily quilted this with a ...

Beverly’s Scrap Buster from Quilted Joy

Here’s a quilt that will really help you clear out that fabric stash!

Many Trips Around the World Quilt

Beverly brought me this fun scrappy quilt for a simple quilting treatment.

Many Trips Around the World Quilt

This looks to me like Bonnie Hunter’s Many Trips Around the World quilt. All those small pieces would be my first clue that this must be a Bonnie Hunter pattern!

Many Trips Around the World quilt

Those fabrics were also going to really affect our decision for the type of quilting on Beverly’s quilt. There are a lot of different patterns in the fabrics and those fabrics are guaranteed to be the focus of this quilt.
