Sweet Persimmons from Nestlings By Robin

I have never had a persimmon 
and maybe I should try 
one now that I have named 
a quilt after them:)
New in the November
issue of AQ Magazine
meet Sweet Persimmons.
This sweet design started 
out in a 30s rendition.

Once I started thinking in Autumn
colors, I came up with this palette.
Still really like it and may have
to put this grouping to work
in another project!

Looks great, right?

Sometimes I can't see past my 
own vision but I also had 
this Sandy Gervais print sitting
around that I had been wanting 
to use in ...

Design Wall Monday - October 5, 2020 from Small Quilts and Doll Quilts

Good Morning Quilters!  This last week I made nine quilt labels.  I don’t know if you have trouble getting this last step completed, but I do.  However, the method I use gives me the best results without a lot of worries.  So I thought I’d share how I make labels.  1) Cut pieces of freezer paper to 8.5” by 11” and iron them onto the fabric you want to use for a label (shiny side to fabric).  I

Label It! from From the Strawberry Patch...

"Brother Bear" is quilted, off the rails and trimmed for finishing. My normal order of doing things, once quilting is completed, is to print out a label and make the hanging sleeve and binding; then I place the hanging sleeve and label into position and attach them at the same time that I stitch the binding on. This was the last sheet of Printed Treasures that I have on hand. I realized a few

The rebel in me! from Applique 'n Patch Quilting

How many of you are doing Cassandra's Circle Free BOM?  I am and my first block is done.  36" square unfinished (read more below).  My stash of indigo Shweshwe fabric will be used in the process.  It was time to use this gorgeous fabric in a project.   This fabric was purchased years ago from https://meerkatshweshwe.com/ and if I need more, I will be giving Celeste a call.

The fabric is a wee bit heavier than normal but absolutely gorgeous to work with for applique.  Especially in those curves.  The fabric doesn't fray as usual and I ...

Label Decisions from Quilt Paint Create

Do you label your quilts?
My first quilts did not get labels. After I made a few I added labels, but I wasn’t consistent in how I did that. I know I embroidered my name on the back of one quilt. I remember muslin squares on the backs of others.
Then I realized I could program words into my sewing machine and it would stitch them out. There are several labels using that method, some with decorative stitch borders.
stitched labelLater I discovered applique and started adding applique labels that matched the theme of the quilt. I remember a pine ...
