Marvellous Minis with Island Batik from Clever Chameleon

Year of the Pig appliqué by Dione Gardner-Stephen at Clever Chameleon

Happy New Year of the Pig 2019

February is Mini Quilt Month in the Island Batik Ambassador calendar: “Create a mini quilt 24″ x 24″ or smaller, any technique” is the challenge we’ve been given. Minis are a great way to try a new technique, or explore resource/time intensive projects on a doable scale. Or to commemorate an occasion or holiday. Like the Lunar New Year. For my first 2019 Ambassador challenge I decided to make something to mark Chinese New Year. Happy New Year of the Pig!

Quilt Reveal: Vintage Holiday from High Road Quilter


As you know, I have been working on the Vintage Holiday mini quilt. I missed the deadline for Project Quilting, and decided to take my time and hand stitch the binding. It looks much neater when I hand stitch because I don't have a lot of practice machine sewing the binding.


 I finished putting the binding on Vintage Holiday last night, and was very proud of myself for getting it done before the end of the month. After all, it is only the 30th and there are 31 days in January. It was even done way before midnight so ...

New pattern: Welcome Home Wreath from Carried Away Quilting

When I became an empty nester, preparing for the holidays took on a whole new meaning. As I laid out the Christmas decorations last year, I thought about my kids coming home from college, and how I wanted them to feel the hug of home the minute they walked through the door.

Nothing quite says “Welcome Home” like a holiday wreath, so I’ve designed a wall hanging that would evoke a sense of love and homecoming. For all who enter our home, especially my adult children, I hope this quilt reminds them that they are loved and most welcome ...

Final blocks for the Winter Flurries mystery sew along with FWFS from Carried Away Quilting


Somehow or other, life got crazy in my neck of the woods, and I fell behind on a couple of projects. But I’m all caught up with my blocks for the “Winter Flurries” mystery sew along with Fort Worth Fabric Studio. Last night and this morning I sewed up the blocks from week three and four.  Next week we’ll be putting this little quilt together!


The week three assignment was the easy, peasy Flying Geese blocks, while we sewed up the beautiful Christmas Star blocks for week four. Now that I have all the pieces and parts, I ...

Christmas version of Fat Quarter Flourish (plus kits!) from Carried Away Quilting


Earlier this year I introduced you to a new pattern called Fat Quarter Flourish, a pretty 20 1/2" square table topper or wall hanging made from just five fat quarters! I’ve been waiting for the chance to sew this pattern in a holiday collection, so here goes . . . Fat Quarter Flourish featuring Christmas Figs by Fig Tree & Company for Moda.


There are so many lovely prints in the Christmas Figs collection that it was difficult to choose which five to feature. But that's what makes this pattern so fun. I don’t think you can go wrong, no ...

Have you ever participated in a mystery sew along? I haven’t, until now! The creative folks at Fort Worth Fabric Studio are hosting a “Winter Flurries” mystery sew along, and I couldn’t resist joining.

The sew along runs for five weeks. Weekly pattern downloads are free and designed by the talented Lindsey Weight. The finished project will be 33” x 33.” Our week one assignment included ...

Thanks to all of my amazing longarm quilting machine renters, I get to see so many different quilts everyday. When I’m needing inspiration I don’t need to look much further than what’s already loaded on a machine! To set the mood for some Halloween fun, I thought it would be fun to look back at some spooktacular Halloween quilts! Here are five of my favorite Halloween quilts that were quilted by the longarm quilting machine renters.

Gift Wrapped from My Quilt Infatuation

I had a fantastic day on Saturday presenting a trunk show of my Stash Statement quilts and teaching a class to the Music City Modern Quilt Guild in the Nashville area (you can see all of the scrappy goodness from the class on my facebook and Instagram pages). Before I headed out of town though, I managed to finish my Christmas X Plus quilt.



I don't know about you, but I really love to work on Christmas things when the season isn't yet upon us.  Somehow, once Christmas actually gets here- you know, in mid-October in some places ...

Christmas X Plus from My Quilt Infatuation

Happy Needle and Thread Thursday, friends!  In case you missed it, I posted the finish of my Fall Foliage quilt that I shared at last week's party HERE (quilted with woodgrain!), and I'm pleased to say that my wishful thinking worked like a charm.  We have been given a reprieve from the super hot temperatures for the past few days and it's actually starting to feel more like autumn is on its way.  Well, we all know that after fall comes the most wonderful time of the year, and it will be here before we know it ...

Diamond Trail takes on a festive, winter look with Nordic Stitches from Carried Away Quilting

Hello quilting friends!  Two weeks ago I shared some photos of a lovely Norwegian collection I received from Fort Worth Fabric Studio:  Nordic Stitches by Wenche Wolff Hatling for Moda Fabrics. Today, I’m delighted to show you the table runner I made and announce that Fort Worth Fabric Studio is offering kits for this project! 


You may recognize this runner pattern.  It’s called Diamond Trail, and I just released it last month using another Moda collection, Sundrops by Corey Yoder. This charm pack pattern is so versatile and is definitely a top you can accomplish in a weekend ...
