Strip Quilt Secrets Blog Hop & Give-Away! from Val's Quilting Studio

Diane who blogs at Butterfly Threads Quilting makes the most wonderful scrappy quilts! I'm always inspired by her combination of bright colors and fabric patterns to design such a variety of patterns. When she published her first book: Scrap Book Secrets, I devoured it, reading it cover to cover and taking note, especially as I read her chapter of Quilt Making Basics. And now she's done it again!!


I quickly volunteered to be part of her book release blog hop as I've had this tote of 30's repro fabric strips that I had cut ...

Using a Bias Tape Maker from Prairie Moon Quilts

Today I’m here with a brief tutorial on how to use a bias tape maker to make vines for appliqué.

There are various sizes of bias tape makers, but I’m using the 1/4″ version made by Clover. The size you need will depend on the finished size of the bias tape you want to make.

On the inside of the packaging that the tool comes in, it tells you how wide to cut your strips. You can do this with either bias strips or straight strips, and there are instructions included in the packaging as well.

(You ...

Mommy and Me from Prairie Moon Quilts

I’m back today to show you another quilt I made for the Stitch ‘n’ Sparkle booth at Quilt Market. This one is completely adorable, and I’m pretty sure it’s been a really popular pattern, because I’ve seen it before, and I know some of my friends have made it.

This one is called “Mommy and Me”:

It’s a pattern designed by Colette Belt of QP Designs (Quilters Paradise). Go check out her website, because she has lots of cute patterns. The one with the piggy taking a bath has me all googly-eyed — it’s so ...

Tuesday Archives #200: A Give-Away! from Val's Quilting Studio

Hello! Hello! and Happy Tuesday Archives! 
The linky party that let's you rejuvinate OLD blogging posts.
Val's Quilting Studio
A little over four years ago, this linky party started.
 When I click back and review our first linky parties, I'm amazed at the variety of topics we have covered. You can check out all our past linky topics right HERE in our Tuesday Archives Directory.

I'm also reflective on how blogging and participation has changed over the years. Participation in our linky party has decreased immensely, mostly from what I have observed to be a parrallel decrease in people who ...

Feb. OMG Valentine Flimsy Finish from Val's Quilting Studio

Inspired by Carole's quilts for the California Thomas Fire victims, I used the Perkiomen Valley Block Pattern that was posted on the Ventura Quilt Guild Website to destash and finish my Valentine fabrics into a cozy 72" x 72" quilt top for my February OMG. This is destash project #2...done!
I grabbed a quick picture of my Feb. OMG finish before work today. We had another couple inches of  that light, fluffy kind of snow last night meaning this would get way too wet if I tried to take pictures outside today. But, I wanted to get my ...

Honey why is this quilt all ragged on the edges?? from Val's Quilting Studio

Huh? OMG!! This quilt has been sitting on the couch in my studio for the past 2 1/2 years!! I never realized that the binding wasn't sewn down until I heard that question from my husband.
Seriously, the binding was on...just not sewn down. How does that happen? Anyhoooo....I packed it up and it provided the perfect hand sewing this past two weeks while I was at our daughter's and I had a homemade quilt to sleep under every night. Doesn't get better than that does it. And now to celebrate this long overdue ...

Button, Button, Who’s Got the Button? from Prairie Moon Quilts

It’s Button Day!

A day to celebrate buttons!

As quilters and crafters, don’t we all LOVE buttons?

Buttons are fun! There’s so much you can do with them, and let’s face it, they’re really fun to play with and look at and collect!

My Great-Aunt Ruby used to play the Button Game with us — Button, Button, Who’s Got the Button? — Aunt Ruby sure loved to have fun!

To help celebrate Button Day, I’m hosting a little game here.

Leave a comment with your guess as to how many buttons are in this little ...
