Sunday Stash June 16, 2019 from Quilt Paint Create

Most of this week was spent catching up from the time away last week. I haven’t turned on my sewing machine for almost two week. That will change today because, surprise, it’s raining.
My sister sent me a couple kits.

An Inspirational Walk Through Liechtenstein from Telling Stories Through the Needle's Eye

At this time of year, for Teri and me (Kara), our dining tables have disappeared under copious amounts of threads and ribbon as we put together kits for the Academy of Appliqué













While Teri is diligently working on kits, I had to get my end of things finished a week earlier, as my husband and I would be heading to Bavaria for a work conference this week. Needless to say, putting a blog post together for either of us was going to be a challenge. With that said though, I thought why not bring our readers along, through pictures, on ...

Summer Dreamin'! from Buttermilk Basin Design Studio

Good evening from the Basin!

As the last bits of snow are melting away here in Minnesota (definitely a late spring for us this year!!), we are embracing the warmer air, longer days, and the sun shining just a bit brighter!  After a long winter we are dreaming of all things summer!

We went back and picked a few of our favorite summer pieces to showcase here!  Now is a great time to get a start on those summer projects (and soak it in quick because our Pumpkin Farm Online Event starts on Friday!!  Ha ha!)




You can find these ...

Charity Drought from Quilt Paint Create

My small group met the other weekend after three consecutive months of major snows on meeting days. During that time I didn’t start a new charity quilt.

For my next project, I chose a quilt kit I picked up off the charity table last year. Someone cut all the squares and stacked them in a large Ziploc with a construction diagram. It’s a trip around the world pattern.  The colors in the picture are a bit flat.

Custom kits featuring Ella & Ollie by Fig Tree & Company from Carried Away Quilting

Happy National Quilting Day! As promised, I've made up several custom kits with Carried Away Quilting patterns, all featuring the beautiful new collection by Fig Tree & Company, Ella & Ollie! 

Please note that I am not a fabric store, and I only purchase a small supply of fabric annually for use in my pattern design. So these kits are limited in number and once they are gone, they are gone. I appreciate your support and enthusiasm, but please remember that my blog sponsors (whose logos run along the left-hand side of my website) typically carry the same collections that I ...

Crossing Petals kits featuring Ella & Ollie by Fig Tree & Company from Carried Away Quilting


Hello quilting friends! Do you remember my Crossing Petals pattern? I released that mini quilt pattern in 2016. My original quilt (photos below) featured Strawberry Fields Revisited by Fig Tree & Company for Moda. Well, it just so happens that the new Fig Tree collection, Ella & Ollie, lends itself to recreating that lovely little quilt! And so, I thought a few kits might be in order!
  

Crossing Petals is a 20 1/2” square mini quilt featuring two pretty red florals and a spark of grass green. I also used Moda's Cross Weave in the sand color for the neutral ...

I almost caved! from Crazy Quilter on a Bike!


I haven't made any resolutions about not buying quilt related things in 2018, but I would like to make an effort to shop in my stash first. If I can't find what I'm looking for, then it's safe to go shopping with a LIST and my codeword - CLUTTER. We had a garage sale at our guild the other night and I did buy one kit - I think I mentioned that. It's a small kit and I didn't pay a whole lot for it.

Brand new kit I bought at the garage sale
Yesterday I ...

Cutting like crazy from Gayle Bong Quilts Too

I've been in a mood to do some serious cutting lately. Although I do have a few UFO's I don't really have any kits cut and ready to go as I'd like so I've spent  some time planning a few quilts and have a good start made on cutting them.
Guess which statement here is true.  1. I started this star and chain quilt because Stashbusters is doing a Chain Quilt Challenge. It's really an Irish Chain quilt challenge but the members are all over the place with which chain design they are doing ...
