I can't believe it's been over a year since I last wrote a blog post! I was walking around Festival of Quilts a little over a week ago thinking it's been a good few months since I've blogged and I quite miss it, only to log on and realize it's actually been more than a year  - how time flies!

So much has happened since my last post it'll take all day to catch you up but in brief we got the dream house and said room is filled to bursting with ...

All Finished With the String Blocks from Quilty Folk

Here they are, those string blocks that I almost gave up on doing. While I love and adore quilts made out of the scrap bin, there's just something about the process that requires a certain mood.

String blocks
In this case, it was a desire to bury my head in some well loved fabrics, not have to make a lot of decisions and just chain piece myself into a place of serenity. Or calmness. I don't think there's ever really any true serenity when doing foundation piecing! It worked pretty well right up to the point where ...

Hybrid quilt block from Pieced Brain

Good morning, quilting friends! Today I am bringing to you this 'hybrid' flower block. I call it hybrid because the leaves are foundation pieced and the flower is made with regular piecing. This is a perfect block for those who want to try their hand at foundation piecing: a small part of the work is done with that technique, the foundation piecing requires only one stitched line, and the quilter practices the basics before plunging into a project solely involving foundation piecing.

This is the back of one leaf. Notice a couple things: 1. I wrote the color of the ...

New Year, New Project from Mama Love Quilts

Dear Reader,

I hope the new year is off to a good start for you. I jumped right into the new year with a new project!

I started working on samples for my upcoming class at this year’s QuiltCon: Big and Bold Freezer Paper Quilt Making. In this class, I will teach on how to use freezer paper to create quilts with large, irregular shapes.

The thing I love about this technique is how quickly and easily the quilt top comes together.

After cutting out the templates, it was a breeze to put the top together.
