Jelly Roll Race Tutorial Reboot with Guest Quilter Becky Vandenberg from The Cutting Table Quilt Blog - A Blog for Quilters by Quilters

Jelly Roll Race Tutorial Reboot with Becky Vandenberg

Hi there. I am Becky Vandenberg from Be So Crafty, a blog devoted to all things sewing. Be So Crafty began last year when I wanted to use my fabric stash for a good cause, so I decided to sew 100 skirts in 100 days and donate them to a local charity that helps refugees in Utah.  Sewing skirts everyday for 100 days was a fabulous experience that I plan to write about soon.  Although I have been sewing for years, I only began making quilts abouts 3 years ago and LOVE it. So I was absolutely thrilled to be ...

Seeing Double from Random Thoughts... do or "di"

You're not really seeing double, but it might appear that way since I just posted Pinkie Squared, version 1 last week. I am happy to say that both quilts have been gifted and well received. 
Version 2 of the Summer in the Park quilt pattern ended up a little smaller than the first one I made, but otherwise they are very similar. I managed to make two baby girl quilts out of the jelly roll that I won last year at Quilt Con.

I really like the Cotton and Steel double ...

Pinkie Squared Version 1 from Random Thoughts... do or "di"

My brother, sister and I have all had grandchildren born in the last few weeks. This quilt is for my brother's granddaughter, his first grandchild. 
I won a large Michael Miller basics jelly roll at QuiltCon last year. When I knew the baby had been born (insert procrastinator here) I dragged it out and then started searching Pinterest for Jelly Roll quilt ideas. I stumbled upon the Summer in the Park quilt pattern by England Street Quilts. I gave it a go and didn't realize just how perfect it suited these fabrics until I was nearly finished quilting ...

Hello 2017!!! from Sew Preeti Quilts

Just got back from India.  OK, it was last week but the jet lag and the exhaustion distorts time perception.

Christmas tree in the background

In general, the weather was pleasant, Mom is mobile and road rage is unchanged.

Sunny Days

Specifically, we threw a Christmas Party - for Paul.

See the Santa?

Mom got a little tree with small decorations.

Lalit, (our dedicated driver) decorated a larger live tree with lights.  Paul made the star using aluminum foil, a pencil and some cardboard.

with Nishant

Meetu, my sister's friend, brought the food - vegetarian and non-vegetarian, plus ice-cream.

Happy SEW Year: Projects & Savings to Jumpstart 2017! from Cultured Expressions

vintagecoinpurseswipSo…looking back on 2016, how did you do creatively?  Were you able to carve out time to sew, quilt, weave, knit, dye or otherwise immerse yourself in your Process?  I seem to remember getting in a pretty good amount of stitching time this year in general.  I didn’t make as many clothes as I wanted to, but I did get in a few interesting sewing hacks and repurposing projects.  I really need to work on some projects using Cultured Expressions’ ABC African Brilliance Collection strip bundles, but happily, many of you know what to do with them on ...

Retreat! from Patchwork Sampler Blog

It’s been a long time since I’ve written a blog post, but it’s been a long time since I’ve done any sewing to speak of. Last weekend I was hoping to change that when my daughter Jen and I attended the retreat weekend at Olive Juice Quilts in Onalaska, WI.  Let’s just say that Jen got a lot accomplished.  Me? Not so much.  She usually prefers to work on smaller sewing projects, pillows, bags and such, but decided instead to make a quilt for her bed.  We found the perfect fabric for the pattern she ...

TGIFF: Easy Peasy Jelly Roll Quilt! from Hobbies Up To Here

Happy Friday!  I’m finally making a dent in my rather extensive WIP pile of quilts.  I finished my Jelly Roll quilt, and just love the Fall look of the colors.

I used a Moda jelly roll called Sunflower Song by Kansas Troubles Quilters.  I love these fabrics so much, I ordered a second jelly roll to use in a different quilt top!


IMG_5826.jpgThe tutorial I used came from (surprise!) Missouri Star Quilt Company.  Though Jenny Doan says you can complete this quilt top in 45 minutes to an hour, I confess it took me more like three hours.  With ...

Day Two at the Long Arm Shop from Needle and Foot

Last week I spent several hours practicing on a long arm machine. I decided to work on a quilt top that I made last fall. Using Kaffe Fassett stripes and solids, I made a strip quilt last fall. As often happens, it was put aside and left untouched for almost a year. By the time I finished this quilt top, it was distorted and nowhere near flats. Not sure if you remember this one, but here is the first post if you want the back story. In that post I mentioned that I had put some of the strips together ...

It's Okay to Try Something Different from Quilty Folk

It's so much fun making a baby quilt, especially if you don't overthink things. I dove into this one with a jelly roll that was given to me oh, sometime last year? The colors are so bright and fun looking. I decided to slam the {I-hate-one-line-fabric quilts} part of my brain off and just go for it. Jump in and just see what might happen!

Jelly Roll quilt
I trolled the Net for jelly roll patterns, almost bought a pattern, and then thought, 'why'? I love 9-patch blocks, why not start there? After some quick lay-out auditions, I ...

Quilt Fiinish from Quilting in the South

Only 2 years in the making but this one is finally finished.  I got the quilting done last week but I didn't get the binding on until today.

The quilt is a jelly roll adaptation.  I would sew the 2 1/2" strips together and then every 3 or 4 strips would get a batik piece.  I love the splotches of color amidst all that black and white. 

The quilting came from someone online.  I knew who showed it when I first had it on the frame in September 2014.  But all the time that as gone on in-between ...

2016 Week 30 Stash Report from Patchwork Sampler Blog

Not much sewing going on here this past week, but a spur of the moment trip “up north” to Minocqua, WI to visit some friends gave me some binding time in the car so I finished a couple of quilts.

The first one was the Rainbow Chevron quilt.  It’s not very big at 39” x 47” but is a good toddler or tummy time quilt.

Rainbow Chevron-1

The second quilt was one of my UFO selections for July and I am thrilled to have it finished.  I’m guessing it is at least ten years old because it was a Strip ...

Flying Geese Log Cabin Tutorial Reboot: Featuring Guest Quilter Jen Van Orman from The Cutting Table Quilt Blog - A Blog for Quilters by Quilters

Hello! I am Jen, and am a wife and mother first and foremost. My mother is a quilter and I learned so many things from her when I started showing interest as a teenager. Quilting is my heritage and I hope it will also become the heritage of my children and grandchildren. That is where my name comes from, Heritage Threads. Quilting binds generations together with threads of love.

Gradient Burst Quilt from Mommy's Nap Time

Gradient Burst 53” x 59”
Quilt Now Magazine issue 20 (February 2016)

The desire to make this quilt started as more of a desire for the process. The intention was to create a unified work using a bundle of strips - I wanted a project where I could mindlessly sew strips, and use just a bit of concentration while trimming and cutting the pieces. I wanted something that would draw the viewer in, contain their senses for a moment. Following the continuity of line, and contrast of color I worked to create a striking quilt. Sometimes the simplest strips can do ...
