Quilting Tips YouTube Series - Sewing Half Square Triangles and Flying Geese from Art Gallery Fabrics-The Creative Blog

Hello Makers,

Team flying geese or Half Square Triangles? Both choices can create tons of different quilt designs and sewing projects. Today I am excited to talk about my new series on Youtube, dedicated to the beginner quilter. Learn how to choose fabrics from my Sewing with Color video and once you got your fabrics picked out it's time to learn some basic quilting units. In my next two videos I show you how to create Half Square Triangles (HST) in three different ways and Flying Geese in two different ways. 

I love that in quilting there are multiple ...

Pumpkin Sky pillow: A welcoming touch for my front porch from Carried Away Quilting

The first week of September has ushered in bright, crisp days for those of us in Minnesota. I plan to spend part of my Labor Day weekend doing some fall decorating. As a jump start, I added a few autumn elements to my front porch, including my newest Pumpkin Sky pillow.

I hope you don’t remember that I was working on this white, butterscotch and denim version of my Pumpkin Sky pillow in September of last year! I finally got my ducks in a row and sent it off to be quilted by my friend Barb at Quilts on ...

Puzzletje Quilt from Expect Moore

The Dutch Puzzle block is what inspired this quilt. The center of this quilt is a recolored version of a Dutch Puzzle, and then I added a ring of additional flying geese around the outside… since this is a wall-hanging size quilt, I named it the Puzzletje quilt. Obviously the “puzzle” comes from the Dutch […]

Cogitating from Quilting with Kimberly

The definition of cogitate is: “To think deeply about something; meditate or reflect.” 
I’ve been cogitating.

It’s hard to believe the last time I wrote a blog post was in May. The Covid-19 pandemic, turmoil, social unrest, and changes in our world have been truly mind-boggling in the past several months. I must admit, I’ve had to really take time (all while working harder than ever at home to meet deadlines and commitments) to really look inward and think about many things. I’ve challenged myself to examine old beliefs in new ways with a fresh perspective ...

Free quilt block patterns for a sampler quilt from Pieced Brain

Free quilt block patterns for a sampler quilt

If you subscribe to my newsletter you are getting free quilt block patterns for a sampler quilt. They are all 12-inch blocks and come with instructions for speedy construction. I have designed 5 exclusive blocks already and here they are.

This is block 1. I decided to make them all this weekend using the fat quarters I have from the Gretel collection (by Riley Blake Designs) that I am using on another project – you know, the one with the star quilt blocks my friends Deb, Lisa, and I are slowly making. Since I have two fat quarter bundles, I think ...

Quilts with stars and over 50 one-block quilt patterns from Pieced Brain

Quilts with stars and over 50 one-block quilt patterns

I love quilts with stars, whether they are pieced, paper pieced, or appliqued. I have made them entirely with stars, such as this Christmas quilt, or mixed with alternating blocks. Here is my latest star quilt block, which is going into a sampler quilt.

Two of my friends and I are making star quilt blocks which will be later turned into a quilt. We were supposed to meet every month and exchange blocks, but life is getting in the way. I did make another block, though, and I think it came out so cool!

I was looking for 12-inch star ...

unity quilt 3 from Making A Lather

I tried to make progress on the unity mystery quilt last week. I have all the pieces cut, sewn and the stars sewn together. They are so cute, but, it seemed to take forever to make them. The reveal for old country mystery quilt came out and I really want to work on that. We have been outside more and I have been quilting on the longarm.

The flying geese were the littlest I have ever made. It was important to make sure the red was on the right and aqua on the left.

Did I mention they are very ...

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 ...

SEW THE RAINBOW! from That's Sew Kerry

Travelling Quilt Bee 2019

A couple of years ago I was lucky enough to be part of a Travelling Quilt Bee it was an amazing experience for me, I made some great 'virtual' quilt friends many of whom I am still in regular quilty contact with, as well as being a great opportunity to try new things and develop my skills. This was largely due to the fact that back then I wasn't overly brave when it came to fabric choices, colour palettes or block/pattern choices and had a real tendency to stick to what I knew and ...

6 Köpfe 12 Blöcke Skill Builder from Quiltmanufaktur

Anfang des Jahres hatte ich bereits meinen Skill Builder Quilt fertig, aber aus privaten Gründen nicht die Kraft und Muse, Bilder zu machen und einen Text zu formulieren. Ich dachte mir, dass wenn es mir besser ginge, die Zeilen dann schon von selbst fließen würden. Das jetzt eine andere, sehr irritierende Zeit mir die Möglichkeit gibt, diesen Blogpost zu schreiben....

Ich bin meinen 5 'Quilt-Buddies' Dorthe Niemann, Katharina Märcz, Verena Schmidt, Nadra Ridgway und Gesine Brüning so sehr dankbar für das Stemmen dieses gemeinsamen Projekts! Drei Jahre haben wir unsere Köpfe zusammen gesteckt und dabei sind drei wunderbare Quilt Projekte ...

Flying Geese quilt ladder runner from Carried Away Quilting

Hello quilting friends! I'm excited to update you on a project I started last year, a long Flying Geese runner featuring one of my favorite fabric collections, Harvest Road by Lella Boutique for Moda. The runner is finished, and I've displayed it on a quilt ladder in my living room. I'm really happy with how it turned out!

The inspiration for this project came from the Furrows block and Harvest tablerunner in Lori Holt’s Farm Girl Vintage book. My runner is much longer than the sample in the book, finishing at 96" long by 12" wide ...

Frolic Mystery Quilt from Becca's Crazy Projects

Part 3

I'm still working on my Frolic Mystery Quilt by Bonnie Hunter of Quiltville. I shared previous progress in Part 1 and Part 2 blog posts. 
I was concerned I wouldn't have enough of the green for sashing, but after I cut a few strips of the black I discovered I had just enough.
I'm always challenged by blocks set on point. Not only is there the problem with keeping things from shifting because everything is on the bias, particularly along the edges, but it just takes longer to piece than blocks in rows and columns ...

Frolic Mystery Quilt from Becca's Crazy Projects

Part 2

A couple weeks ago I shared Part 1 of my Frolic Mystery Quilt by Bonnie Hunter of Quiltville.
I've been making good progress on the many units that make up this quilt. First, I worked through the corner blocks.
Then, the side blocks.
I was finally filling in units and it was starting to look like a quilt.
This past weekend I managed to finish all the blocks. Now, I move on to the sashing. I don't make many quilts with sashing because it always seems like so much work. Great results, though.

Tools and supplies ...

Show Me Something {with Triangles} from Little Bunny Quilts

February's theme for Show Me Something with Sarah is triangles!

Here are the three projects I am adding to Sarah's link up:

1. Faceted Churn Dash wall hanging -- This scrappy quilt is lots and lots and lots of little half square triangles!

2. Pink Stars baby quilt -- I made this quilt as an Island Batik Ambassador challenge last year. There's only one square in each block -- the rest of the piecing is all triangles!

3. Good Fortune quilt -- this was the Bonnie Hunter mystery in 2018, featuring quite a few triangles!

I hope you check out what ...

Clue #7, #8 Progress and a Test Block {Frolic Mystery Quilt} from Little Bunny Quilts

The good thing about being behind on Frolic is that I can see how other people's quilts are coming together! I have been enjoying seeing all of the blocks people are putting together on Instagram and I am very jealous of those who have had the time/patience/ability to get their quilt tops finished!

The bad thing about being behind is that it seems like somewhat of an insurmountable task! I'm making some progress, most certainly. I've found that it is kind of hard to get to a stopping point with this project because I just ...

Frolic Mystery Quilt from Becca's Crazy Projects

Part 1
Bonnie Hunter of Quiltville hosts a mystery quilt that begins the day after Thanksgiving in the United States.

Frolic began on Black Friday in 2019. I wasn't excited about the mystery quilt this time. I did buy some fabric, but I didn't have the interest to actually play along with the mystery. This isn't the fault of the designer, just a general feeling of not wanting to make a quilt without knowing where I was going. I waited until after the reveal to settle on my colors.
I picked up the black and the gray ...

Clue #4, #7, #8 Progress {Frolic Mystery Quilt} from Little Bunny Quilts

After a long delay, I have finally finished Clue #4 for my Frolic mystery quilt! While the final reveal came out today, I am not as behind as I thought I might be.

To finish up Clue #4, I made all of the necessary sets of HSTs in navy, dark teal, and aqua.

I split up my aquas so that I used half of the different prints to make the aqua/navy HSTs and the other half of the prints to make the aqua/dark teal HSTs.

The left and center aquas are from my Pineapple Log Cabin quilt, the ...
