Exploring London - The Village Haberdashery from madebychrissied


I have spent the last 10 days in England, visiting friends old and new and I even squeezed in time for a bit of sewing.  An internet friend of several years, Trudi Wood, was teaching free motion quilting at The Village Haberdashery in West Hampstead, London so I met up with her and sat in on her class.


Even if you haven't heard of Trudi I know you'll have seen her work - in magazines, display quilts for fabric companies and quilting events far and wide Trudi is the queen of British long arm quilting and you can see ...

More deadlines from Quilting & Learning

I've often said in my blog that I don't like quilting under deadlines. Well, I still don't like it, even if I sometimes have to!

The first deadline was getting ready for the Fibre Fling 5 Show & Sale earlier this month. It was a huge success. The art was fabulous and I got everything done on time.












My two next deadlines are the Sew full of love quilt show with the Common Threads Quilt Guild (CTQG) from May 6 to 8 and the Art with Fabric Blog Hop (May 9th).

52 prompts to blog every week : Week 15 from 13 Woodhouse Road


Aha ! my favourite this week, the favourite  FMQ design...

And a favourite from my favourite thing would be a difficult choice to make. However, I would like to go with paisleys! Its my go to design and is often repeated on a lot of my quilts!


The design is a little difficult to begin with but with practice I have become one of the most loved paisley quilters in India. I might as well say, that my friend and family dare not disturb me when I am with Ross trying to do some paisleys! I am, at that point , in ...

The Ultimate Guide to Machine Quilting - A Book Review! from Confessions of a Fabric Addict

Hi, all!

Recently I was given the opportunity to review a new book by Christa Watson and Angela Walters called The Ultimate Guide to Machine Quilting - and I can’t wait to tell you about it!!


This is a really interesting book, and unique in that it discusses both long-arm and sit-down machine quilting options for each project.  In the beginning of the book, each quilter introduces herself and her preferred method of quilting, then shares the tools of the trade that they recommend and their own tips on becoming a better quilter.


Then there are the projects - ten quilts ...

Learning to write - again from Quilting & Learning

Colour Me Positive Challenge
Like most of you, I've been writing since I was 5 or 6 years old. At different stages of my life, what I wrote and why I wrote has changed. At first, I wrote mostly for school - homework, math, essays, posters and stories. As a mom, I wrote lists of things to do and buy, notes for sick or late kids and the occasional letter or card to family. Since working on a computer, I only write when I'm at meetings or when I have no idea what I'm doing - then I'll ...

It's Coming Along! from Joanie's Trendy Quilts


Each step I made a decision as to what the quilting design would be, not planned ahead. So far I am quite pleased. I was planning on zigging every other block in the grid, but realized somewhere along the way the grid was not equal on each side. Any additional stitching would only highlighted that the grid was off center.





There are 2 layers of Warm and Soft batting which gives the star a trapunto effect. I used my hopping/darning foot to free motion quilt the feathers. This is the foot I have been using for years to free ...

Fibre Fling 5 Show from Quilting & Learning

It was amazing to see my art quilts hanging beside other wonderful art and feel that they fit right in! I have to admit that I didn't expect this to happen to me, at least before I retired and got to play and create full time.

It was great to help set up the Out of the Box Fibre Fling 5 art show and sale. Some of the larger pieces were hung on the wall, but there were a dozen free-standing structures to hang the art pieces. I worked with one of the artists to set up the pieces ...

Still Waiting..... from Sue Daurio's Quilting Adventures

No twins yet, but they will definitely be here for the next Monday post, so EXCITING!!!  I think I just may be a bit more excited than any of them.  In the spirit of babys' I did finish Veronica's Pachyderm Pals.  Such a cute pattern by Cheri Leffer.  Hobbs 80/20 batting, Glide thread on top, magna glide in bobbin.  I quilted elephants in the big squares, the fabric is so busy it's hard to see but creates a nice texture change for the little guy.  When you look a the back with the minky you can see ...

» Sue Daurio's Quilting Adventures

Still waiting for the twins, oh boy I know she's more impatient that me.  So rather than doing a lot of sewing on any on thing, I'm like pacing from project to project.  Are they here yet????  They may not be here, but this is a nice distraction - look as this wonderful hunk of  quilting sweetness!  Yep she's mine and her name Amelia.  But don't tell daughter #3.  Daughter #3 wants that name for her first girl.  I have 4 girls and 6 grandsons. That's right not one grand daughter. Ya ya I know how ...
