BU Quilt Along Week 10 from Patterns by Jen

It's here, the finish!!  It's time to quilt our Here A Square, There A Square quilt!




First thing we need to do is measure our quilt top so we can get the correct backing and batting pieces. This one should measure about 66" x 78". 

Once measured we want to add a few inches all the way around. If you are taking it to a long armer, they want 4" extra around. This helps them when they are loading your quilt onto the machine, especially if things aren't completely square.

When I'm quilting at home I ...

BU Quilt Along Week 7 from Patterns by Jen

We've made all of our units and it's time to put our blocks together! 




You guys, I can't believe we're almost done!!  I love when I get to this point. All of that work, cutting, stitching, trimming and stitching some more and we finally get to see it come together in full blocks.



Lay out your block, noting the direction of your Corner units and Flying Geese units.




Stitch into rows, and press.




Once your rows are together, stitch your rows together. I like to pin when I am sewing my rows together, not just where ...

Scrappy Quilts, Comforters & Free Pattern from Pink Doxies


The Scrappy Hurricane Quilt


While hurricane Irma hit the southern U.S., I sewed nine patch blocks from my table scraps. There was so much going on in the scrappy hurricane blocks I felt the quilt needed somewhere calm to rest the eye. I laid this up on the wall during a sewing day here in the studio, but have since rearranged several times. I allow layouts to hang, and switch blocks around over many days until I like the feel of it. If time permits this week, I will make the sashing from 3 strips: white, cerulean blue grunge ...

BU Quilt Along Week 6 from Patterns by Jen

We're getting closer to being able to put our blocks together. This week we are adding triangles to the Half-Square triangles we made last week.




We are using the last black 2 7/8" squares. If you haven't already, cut them once on the diagonal.




Watch placement of the half-square triangle and the black triangle. Sew carefully without stretching. 




Note that I stitched with the half-square triangle on the bottom, this is because the seam allowance on the half square triangle is pressed that way. Now I don't have to worry about my seam allowance getting bunched ...

A cover girl - almost! from Crazy Quilter on a Bike!


The days are starting to blur together.  Get up, cut fabric, sew fabric. Go to work - cut fabric. Go home. Cut fabric, sew fabric! 

I'm almost, but not quite done with all the cutting.  I think I have at least one more good solid day of cutting and then a LOT of pressing and a LOT of sewing and some quilting.  I find cutting is very relaxing and I could cut all day!  Which under the circumstances is a good thing. 

However last night when I was cutting, my mind wasn't there.  I cut this bigger piece so ...

Who is ready to make Half-Square Triangles with me?!




I love a good HST (half-square triangle) and while some don't particularly like to make them, I have found I enjoy them more when they are squared up perfectly. I go over making perfect half-square triangles HERE.

For the Here A Square, There A Square pattern we are going to use our white and grey 3" squares. For me this is the Shimmer 2 and Shimmer Lawn from Monaluna.



On the wrong side of the white squares mark the diagonal.




Matching a white and grey right sides together, stitch 1 ...

Fabric Basket from Alamosa Quilter

I found a new basket pattern.


I put the spool of thread in the photo for scale.

Unfortunately, I didn't really like the pattern. It wasn't particularly difficult, but the results were less than stellar. This side looks okay, but the other side ... not so much. Oh well! Sometimes that's what you get with a free pattern. At least I didn't spend any money a pattern I don't like.
