The Road to OZ – OBW #78 from If These Threads Could Talk

I love the Wizard of Oz! I know it is a very controversial movie, either you love it or hate it! In 2008 Quilting Treasures came out with the Wizard of Oz fabric line. The first fabrics were in sepia tones. I have made many, many Wizard of Oz quilts from my extensive Wizard of Oz fabric stash. This Road to Oz is for me!

I used Studio 180 Design’s Star 60 Tool to enhance my One Block Wonder. Aside from cutting the equilateral triangles I will share how to cut Whole Hexagons, Half Hexagons and make a Half ...

Ruca the Technicolor Cat – OBW #77 from If These Threads Could Talk

Last January I had the great joy of meeting my half sister Marti for the first time. I also acquired many new family members.

When I saw this panel by Chong-A Hwang for Timeless Treasures, I knew I had to make a One Block Wonder for my Great Niece Alexa. Alexa has a wonderful cat named “Ruca”, whom she has had since she was in college. I met Ruca, a very special cat.

Even though this panel states it measures 24″ by 44″, by the time I cut apart the panels and squared it up, it was more like 23 ...

Friends at the Fence... from May Your Bobbin Always Be Full


Look what's up on the Design Wall...



I have had this panel for close to a year now...




I put it up on the design wall...

then waited for inspiration to set in.





English Paper Pieced Hexagons...

on the table





Now, I am inspired !




Here goes...


The sky has a very soft pink 

running through it...

I pinned up the light blue and pink hexagons

 along the sky.





At this point, the sky is blocked in 

with blue hexagons.





I have started on the lower portion...

blacks, browns, rusts 

to go with the horse colors.





I am getting goose ...

Go BIG.........or Go HOME from May Your Bobbin Always Be Full



I haven't had much time with my

sewing machine out in the Thread Shed

 since calving season began

in February...


I have been hand piecing in the evenings...

English Paper Piecing






Just so you can get an idea of the size of these

paper pieced flowers:


Each hexagon petal is 

nearly the size of my hand !

Go BIG.....or Go HOME !




These piece together fairly quickly...





I can stitch together 5 or 6 in an evening.





I have 13 done so far...

Not sure what I will do with them?

For now, I just enjoy looking at these BIG ...

Hexagon Table Runner......#3 from May Your Bobbin Always Be Full


English Paper Pieced.....Hexagons



I enjoy a hand piecing project when we travel,

so I am putting together a 

take-a-long table runner.





After all of the paper hexagons are covered with 

fabric, I put down a white piece of fabric and

arrange the table runner...





This is my third table runner,

and I still enjoy the process.















The pieces are all arranged,

but not sewn together just yet...





I pin each hexagon to the fabric base.

They will live on this fabric until they

are hand pieced together.

The fabric will not remain under the hexagons.






Once they are all ...
