~ Dutch Delight Quilt and Other Stuff ~ from Podunk Pretties

 Hello Happy Quilters!  Just thought I would pop in for a little update on the happenings in the Podunk Studio.  Lets start with my most recent new project.  It is an impulse project.  I've been admiring this quilt since seeing at quilt market.  The name of the quilt pattern is Dutch Delight by Jill Finley.  The simple design with pops of color won me over immediately.  Jill's quilt patterns almost always have a little bit of applique.  I love the way she can take a simple design and give life.   So as soon as the pattern was released ...

~ Home Again BOM ~ Block 13 ~ And a Little Khaleesi Update ~ from Podunk Pretties

Howdy Quilting friends!  I'm super excited to be working on the last 4 blocks of the Home Again BOM by Erin Russek.  Hopefully I can have them all complete by the time she releases the setting instructions.  You can find all the FREE blocks in one convenient spot on Erin's blog by clicking HEREClick here to see the rest of my blocks.  I'm also excited to have my Hunkering Down quilt almost finished.  It's the yellow quilt in the background of my block 13 below.

This last couple of weeks have been super busy.  Summertime ...

~ Home Again BOM ~ Alternating Block Colors? ~ from Podunk Pretties

Hello Quilting Friends!  The last couple of days have been spent rummaging through the fabric stash looking for the perfect fabric to compliment the Home Again BOM applique blocks.  So I pulled a few pastels and pinned them to the design wall so I could stare at them for hours on end while cocking my head from side to side.  When I tired of standing in one place I decided maybe I needed to look at them from a different angle.  Maybe if I sat for a bit it would help me make my final decision.  Then I realized I ...

~ Home Again Progress and Tips ~ from Podunk Pretties

Hi Quilty Friends!  Today I'm taking a little break from quilting the Hunkering Down quilt to play a little game of catch up on the Home Again quilt by Erin Russek.

I'm 3 blocks behind but due to my lack of attention to detail I will need to redo/fix two of the blocks on the wall.  Color placement is an important part of any quilt.   It helps to visually balance or distract depending on the effect you're after.  Block design can also be a balancing effect.  Notice the symmetry in the blocks of this quilt.  Block ...

~ Home Again and Playing ~ from Podunk Pretties

Howdy Sweet Quilting Friends!  Today I'm doing what I do best, making a HUGE fun mess.  Pulling fabric is the best part of quilting, don't you think?  I'm digging deep into the stash to find my most loved pieces of out of print Lakehouse Drygoods fabrics.  Some of these I forgot I owned.  My original plan for this quilt was to work only from the scrap bins.  But there just isn't enough variety of prints and scale of prints.  I'll use what I can from the scrap bins then supplement with the larger pieces.  In ...

~ Change of Plans ~ from Podunk Pretties

It was full steam ahead in my marathon quilting day and then it happened.  CRACK!  Okay it didn't make a sound but I noticed when using my ruler foot against a ruler that my quarter inch seam was inaccurate.  After close inspection I saw the problem, it's broken!  How in the heck did this happen again!?  I tried to super glue it (again) but with no luck.  All I can do is order a new one.  This time I've order a metal one instead of plastic.  Well all I can do is wait.  Even with Amazon Prime ...
