Designer Mystery Quilt from Pieced Brain

Catching up with the Fat Quarter Shop's 2017 Designer Mystery Block of the Month has been fun! The first one I worked on was Pat Sloan's "Cat's Pajamas":




I made it's four patches then put them all together. The finished quilt will look lovely because of the choices of fabrics, don't you think?

Here is block 4 by Kate Spain called "Soda Pop":

It was very fast because first...


... you make the four patches, then...

... the diamond in the square for the center, followed by the side patches (no photo). That's it. Here are ...

I May Have a Scrap Problem... Progress! from Confessions of a Fabric Addict

Hi, all!

I am feeling so excited at busting some stash this week!  It's such a good feeling to see progress.  It's not scraps - at least not most of it - but it is some long-held stash bits and pieces, usually a yard or less.  

But first, here's my Gypsy Wife block for the week - actually two of them this time!


This block is called "Puss In The Corner" - a traditional block - but one I hadn't ever tried before.  It was quick and easy, and it was so much fun to pick out the fabrics!  I really ...

I May Have A Scrap Problem... A Little Stashbusting! from Confessions of a Fabric Addict

Hi, all!

It's been a busy week!  I have to say, I've been doing more stash busting than scrap sewing this week, because of the "A Heart For Texas" pillowcase drive.  I've made more than a few pillowcase kits...



This isn't even all of them - I've put together 47 kits so far, some of which have been sewn up and others which will be sewn this Wednesday and Saturday.  Each one takes about a yard of fabric, so they're eating up the smaller pieces of fabric that have been languishing in my stash!  It ...

Allie's Quilt from Seaside Stitches

 Another recent finish was this graduation gift for my son's girlfriend. A week before her graduation, I was cleaning up my sewing area and rediscovered this fabric. I knew it would be perfect for Allie, so I started cutting and stitching.


 I started with 3 mini charm packs of Kate Spain's Paradiso line. The mostly blue squares were combined with Kona Snow for some yummy 9-patches. Those were set on point, and alternated with plain square-in-a-square blocks with Kona Bahama blue. Very simple piecing. The points were extended around the perimeter to complete the design. I used every ...
