Turning Artwork into a QUILT from A Ditchin' Time Quilts


Here is a quilt finish, I made this quilt for her by using @monika_forsberg ‘s artwork (w/permission)! She is such an amazing artist from the United Kingdom.  Every time I see her work I think to myself, "that would be a beautiful quilt" so finally I got my nerve up to make it a reality.  I think she loves the results because she reposted my post!  Take a look at her IG page, it's amazing!  Right now as I am posting this she has 95 wonderful comments about how much everyone likes it. 




You might ask me why ...

Hand Applique for Outdoor Quilting from The Inbox jaunt

Good Morning, Quilters! Hand applique is a perfect project when you want to enjoy the weather AND quilting! I designed the Rose and Dot block to honor my grandmother, Rose and my mother, Dorothy for the Splendid Sampler 2 Book.  Many of you were able to download the block during Martingale’s promotion.  If not, The…

Euphoria Quilt from twiddletails

It's been a while and I've worked on quite a few projects since then.

My current addiction is needle turn appliqué and this project:

The pattern is from a book named "Euphoria Tapestry Quilts" by Deborah Kemball.
I haven't done hand appliqué in ages, so this is a bit of a learning curve for me. I'm using the back basting method which I think is my favorite. Much less prep than some of the other techniques.

So far I've only made one panel:

I don't think I'm going to make the entire quilt ...

Good Things Happen When You Join a Quilt Guild! Out-of-Print Book Miracles and Workshops With Karen Kay Buckley from Cheeky Cognoscenti

What an amazing week this has been quilt-wise, and all because I joined the Charlotte Quilters' Guild a few months ago!  On Monday, our Southside Stitchers Bee met at Christa's house, where I got lots of needleturn applique stitched down, ate a few too many homemade chocolate chip cookies, and got a tour of Christa's professional longarm quilting studio, Cotton Berry Quilts.    Christa is letting me borrow a set of Handi-Quilter Groovy Boards to try out with my longarm machine for my next charity outreach quilt, to see it that works better for me than trying to follow ...

ROUND ROBINS from Nestlings By Robin





First let me say that I have NEVER done or participated in a Round Robin for this reason, I am a Control Freak!  The idea of putting some fabric in a box and letting someone else make my quilt decisions for me and add other fabrics just makes my brain seize up. I have seen some lovely ones and some not so lovely ones too.  The idea intrigues me and seeing the reveals is inspiring but the need to be involved hasn't taken root.

Then I read somewhere about a controlled one and that made me want to do ...

Bonheurs d'occasions... from Accroquilt

Another UFO quilt finished!  This year, I try to have some more finished and not think about them anymore.  
That one is a block of the month happened some years ago.  I don't even remember who designed the quilt.  If someone is able to tell me, I'll be happy to give credit to the designer.  Sorry for that!

***I got the information:  it's a Erin Russek design, ''Be Happy'' quilt.  Thanks to Anonyme.

Voici une autre réalisation qui dormait sur mes tablettes depuis quelque temps déjà.  C'est un bloc du mois que j'ai accumulé il ...

Graduation in New Zealand tends to start with ...

TIDY TIME from The Proficient Needle

When picking up the assorted bits and pieces that had found homes on my cutting table, I came across this orphan block.

The centre square was a basket
 set on point which didn't coordinate with the remainder of the blocks that I collected several years ago during a shop hop.
   
Later, a friend made a vest with an Easter panel, but didn't use any of the applique pieces.  I made the block larger, with corners so that the basket would sit upright and I used the flowers, eggs and bunny with paws to fill the basket.

I checked ...

Half circle - A finished quilt from Luna Lovequilts

I can check project #3 off my list for the second quarter of 2019 Finish-Along !
Je peux cocher le projet #3 de ma liste pour le deuxième trimestre du Finish-Along 2019 ! 


Luna Lovequilts - Quilt inspired by Latifah Saafir - in Carolyn Friedlander Polk and Gleaned collections

I progressed faster than I expected to quilt the last area. The reason is that I recently started to listen to a series of audio books that was very addictive and I got to organize my quilting projects to hear the end ... I listen to books or films only when I am working on tasks that don't require to be very focused, such as quilting.

J'ai avancé ...

F1, F2, F3, Caswell from Accroquilt


I can see the end of sewing time for the center quilt.  2 more blocks and I will be done.  I'm thinking now about how to design the outer borders.  I don't want those circles and zigzags.  Flowers, flowers...and leaves!  

Je vois la fin de cette belle aventure côté couture du centre de la courtepointe.  2 blocs restent à coudre.  Je réfléchis maintenant au design des bordures extérieures.  Je ne veux pas de ces zigzags et cercles.  Trop moderne à mon goût!  Je veux quelque chose de floral.  Fleurs, feuilles et tiges encore et encore.

E3, E4, E5 Caswell from Accroquilt

As you see with these 3 pictures, when I take a photo, light is not always the same.  the 2 first pictures have the same background fabric....

Voici les 3 blocs suivants.  La lumière n'étant pas toujours la mème lors de la prise de photo, cela donne des fonds de bloc de différentes couleurs.  Mais les 2 premiers ont le mème tissu, comme vous pouvez le constater avec le motif.






One more row to hand applique and it will be done for the center of this quilt.

Il reste une dernière rangée (5 blocs) pour terminer le centre de ...

D3, D4, D5, E1, E2, Caswell from Accroquilt

Spring is here, at last.  And a lot of flowers are growing in my Caswell quilt.

Avec le printemps enfin de retour, plusieurs fleurs sont apparues cette semaine dans la courtepointe.  Sachant que toutes les tiges et les feuilles avaient été appliquées auparavant, on comprend que c'est plus rapide.

D2 Caswell from Accroquilt

I like to change the color of each leave.  A new way to work for me.  

J'apprécie le fait de changer de couleur à chaque feuille.  Une nouvelle façon de faire qui me mettait un peu mal à l'aise au début.
