Two Blocks -LHQSQ 2.0 from Gene Black an Alabama Artist

For the Left-Handed Quilter Sampler quilt along,  I have made my first two blocks.  Since there are 99 blocks to choose from and we are only making 25 of them, we can choose which ones we want to make.
My fabrics for this will be mostly Kaffe Fassett by Free Spirit.  The 10" squares and some charm packs were on sale and I couldn't resist the colorful delights.

The pieces were cut with my Accuquilt Go! cutter using the 8" Qube set.  These are 6 inch finished blocks, but the 2" square and 2" half-square triangles from that set ...

The end of 2018 from Quilting Lots Moore Designs

Thought I had better try and catch up with you all before the year is gone.  November/December have been hard months for me health wise and I got back home for Christmas on Christmas Eve Day.  Yay, thank you Lord.  Spent Christmas with some of our family.  Photos coming.
Might not be a lot more posts in 2019, we will see what progress I can make.  However, there is still a strong urge to kill that stash, so I'm hoping to do a little more stitching yet.  Hoping to infect (lol) one of my granddaughters with the bug ...

that time I forgot to photograph a quilt from Charm About You

It was bound to happen at some point. I completely forgot to photograph a quilt, therefore failing as a blogger. Thanks to the magic of screen grabs and YouTube though, I can at least show you the finished quilt (not quite in all its glory).

First let me share a pretty pincushion I made for Sewing Quarter. This is the Voodoo Feather Pincushion from the book Adventures in Paper Piecing by Sarah Elizabeth Sharp. I made it using fabric from a Tilda Bird Pond charm pack.

The book is excellent. It takes you through everything about foundation paper piecing, including ...

Cartwheel quilt from Wendy's Quilts and More

Yes, I've started something new.  It's a crazy pattern from Kaffe Fassett's Quilt Grandeur book called "Cartwheel".

The rainbow ric rac is from Spotlight in New Zealand, but I believe you can buy it at Joann's in USA. 



There's so much going on in this quilt, and to top it all off, it's got ric rac!


I've admired the pattern since I first got the book, and when my good friend Anne was destashing some of her Kaffe Fassett fabrics, I spied the background fabric called Parasols in her box.




So Anne kindly ...

Pineapples and Paris Star quilt from Charm About You

It's been sew sew sew at my house! These projects each have a lot of seams and used up a lot of thread. Completely worth it though because they turned out really nicely. 

My first project used the new Bird Pond collection in Blue and Teal by Tilda. I made two sizes of pineapple blocks for a 20" cushion front (which I did make into a cushion but I don't have a picture of the finish!). I chose to fussy cut the gorgeous Anemone print for the centre of the largest block and for the corner squares.

Slipsen from Veriquilt

Nu har jag tagit itu med, och nästan slutfört, projektet med KMs fina slips! Inte så gammal (slipsen!) men i siden och precis vad som blev pricken över i på min kvilt. Nu återstår handsömnad av infodringen och upphängningskanal, sedan får jag se vad fortsättningen blir. Detta var # 2 av mina Personliga utmaningar.


En del tid har gått åt till att sy Rikstäckets mysteriekvilt. Jag är väl en sådan person som vill ha kontroll, inte totalt men någorlunda, och är man en sådan person skall man inte ge sig ut i det okända! Det mesta gjorde jag på måfå ...

Progress has been made...lots of photos from Quilting Lots Moore Designs

My friend Lorraine said "your blog's been a bit quiet lately."  Oh dear, she is right, I have been so busy concentrating on getting stuff done, that the energy required for posting has not been there.

On top of all that I keep forgetting to take photos of finished quilts!!!  Hate that.  Here are a few photos of what I have been up to lately.

These first three are from the Master Guild quilt shown held in Carterton last month.




This is the guest exhibitor - none other than said Lorraine Baker who commented on my lack of posting!  Revenge ...

Icecream with Sprinkles from Sew Preeti Quilts

Sex is like food, but different.

Beauty and the Beach

You imagine it to be sweet and smooth like ice-cream.
In reality it is like barbeque ribs - sticky and messy.

Ice-cream with Sprinkles

You picture it will be a neat little cup with a small spoon.  You daintily take a bite, close your eyes and enjoy the gentle melting of the ice-cream on your tongue. You take a deep breath of extreme satisfaction as the coolness travels down your throat, while the sweetness lingers in your mouth. Pure bliss.

Barbecue Ribs

In reality, the barbeque ribs are rather large and ...

18 Carat Quilt Pattern Video Tutorial – Layer Cake Quilt Pattern from Quilt Addicts Anonymous

There’s nothing better than an easy pattern that looks complicated. 18 Carat fits that bill. You just need to be able to sew a half-square triangle and cut strips to make the blocks for this quilt, but it looks like you cut super complicated templates and worked for weeks on a top you can get together in a weekend.

18 Carat is made with a 10-inch square pack and coordinating yardage. The pattern is named for the sparkling gemstone look created by grouping the layer cake squares into color groupings.

With instructions this easy, 18 Carat can be put ...

Say Hello to the Little One! from Sew Preeti Quilts

I am listening to Eragon by Christopher Paolini.
The dragon is Saphira, the rider is Eragon. Saphira's name for Eragon - Little One.

Finished Flimsy
I have a finish to share. Finishing at just 37.5" square, it is one of the smaller baby quilts I have made.  Hence the name - The Little One.

3" squares of Kaffe Fassett fabric

Made with 3" Kaffe Fassett Squares, some left over from Clay's Quilt and others cut up from 6" Design Strips.

There is no story in the flimsy. At least, not yet.  The backing on the other ...

Hillside Video Tutorial – Uses 2 Jelly Rolls! from Quilt Addicts Anonymous

A couple of years ago I was invited to come interview Kaffe Fassett, Brandon Mably and Liza Lucy at the opening of Blanket Statements, an exhibition of Kaffe’s quilts that traveled the U.S. You can read all about it by clicking here.

I live in the Midwest, where traditional quilting reins supreme. Walked into the exhibit hall was a transformative experience. The walls filled with bright bold color, where neutrals were optional and when they were used, hot pink was a perfectly acceptable.

I felt like I had finally discovered fabrics that spoke to me and that I ...

Marina's Quiltzomer 6: Geheim, groot geheim! from M. Brito de Campos

De Mystery van Free Spirit, ontworpen door Kaffe Fassett 
is nu in de 4e maand.

Maand 1.
Maand 2.
Maand 3. Opnieuw Snowballs.
Maand 4. Opnieuw Checkerboard.
Moet ik nog maken.

Op Facebook is erg veel commotie over de Mystery. Vanaf dag 1 wordt er gemopperd over de stof keuze en willen mensen stoffen verwisselen. Daar wordt door anderen natuurlijk weer op gereageerd: hoe durf je de keuze van "de meester" in twijfel te trekken; 
het is veel te vroeg om ook maar iets te wijzigen; enz enz,
Er is ook heel veel heen en weer gepraat over de volgorde ...

Pineapples On the Design Floor, With Border Bliss! from Cheeky Cognoscenti

Pineapple Log Cabin Layout Finalized
I had a hunch that my church would be pretty quiet on a Saturday morning in June, so I packed up my pineapple log cabin blocks and label stickers and used the floor of the Lower Commons (a large lobby/fellowship area outside the Sanctuary) to lay out my quilt blocks.  It took me about an hour to get my 36 blocks laid out in a 6 x 6 grid without any of the same fabric strips right next to one another or too close to one another where any of the corners meet up ...

☀ pineapple, honey bloom & sun spell quilts ☀ from Charm About You

Three is the magic number! Here are 3 recent quilt finishes, quite different in style, and a little needle book for the cuteness. These were all made for Sewing Quarter, you can catch up with the shows on YouTube and if you keep reading you'll reach the clip I've included that shows how I bind (I'm making the needle case but I sew binding on quilts the same way!).

This quilt is my Mai Tai Pineapple quilt, so named because the bright colours reminded me  of tropical cocktails as I was making it!

Mystery! from M. Brito de Campos

Ik hou niet van mystery projecten. 
Ik weet graag waar ik aan toe ben 
en waar ik aan begin.
Maar ja, 
Als het een Kaffe Fassett mystery is, 
wordt het een ander verhaal!
Het probleem begon al met de keuze:
Licht of Donker?
Licht? 
Hmm, misschien te licht 
en wordt het meer pastelkleurig 
en daar hou' ik niet zo van.
Donker? 
Hmm, wordt misschien erg bruin of zwart. 
Vind ik niet zo leuk.
OK! Allebei dan?
Wordt wel erg duur en vooral erg veel werk.
Keuzes, keuzes!
Ik heb gekozen voor donker.
En tot nog toe is het mooi!

Honderd en een dingen! from M. Brito de Campos

De afgelopen tijd heb ik aan zo veel verschillende dingen gewerkt!
De quilt Chainreaction met Artisan Stoffen van Kaffe Fassett is af.
Het is een hele leuke quilt om aan te werken, 
maar natuurlijk veel minder simpel dan hij lijkt!
De poppetjes quilt is doorgequilt.
Superleuk om te doen!
Er waren nogal wat mogelijkheden voor het doorquilten 
en uiteindelijk heb ik voor vrolijke lusjes gekozen 
met een verlopend garen.
De quilt is ook al bij een nieuwe eigenaar!
heb ik een quiltje met bubbels gemaakt.
En nog een 2e quiltje, dat ik nog niet ...
