Measure Twice and Make it Modern

Good Measure is my debut quilt design and pattern in the international quilt magazine, Make Modern. It’s a digital magazine by quilters for quilters.

Good Measure may look complicated, but truly, it’s an easy large block design with two backgrounds. The original colorway is a personal design exploration with a bright bold orange background.

Many thanks to Island Batik for helping to make this possible with their gorgeous  Island Batik’s Solids.

Let’s see Good Measure in another colorway. Friend and pattern tester Marilyn Linton’s color selection is a soft ...

Let’s Row Along with Fat Quarter Shop

I’ve joined the Jolly Bar Row Along, hosted by Fat Quarter Shop as a featured quilter.  Each week I will share the featured Jolly Bar block.

The first block is Sparrow Tracks. The row quilt uses 12 blocks. Each block in the Jolly Bar Row Along is featured in the new Jolly Bar Book Vol. 2.

Distress Oxide & Kraft-texLooking for a fun project with... from Living Water Quilter



Distress Oxide & Kraft-tex

Looking for a fun project with unexpected results that are always a win?  Then try applying Distress Oxide and heat embossing on Kraft-tex.

A few weeks ago I picked up 12 Ranger Ink Distress Oxide inks with the goal of using it on Kraft-tex. Much of the inspiration comes from the talented Jennifer McQuire.  Thank you Jennifer for the ink swatch templates.

image

After applying ink to each card swatch and playing with white card stock, I was ready for Kraft-tex. Looking left to right, see the progression of layering ink on Kraft-tex in the images below.

NOTE:  I am a C&T Publishing affiliate and Kraft-tex ambassador. Kraft-tex for this project was provided by C&T Publishing.

image

Although the dark color and texture of Kraft-tex is handled differently, experimenting with white card stock did help. Distress Oxide is a unique ink where individual colors are maintained during the layering process and has an awesome oxidized chalk like finish.

image

After layering Emerald Kraft-tex with ink and heat embossing it was cut and glued to an unfinished wooden pen/pencil holder.  To continue with the Distress look, the edge of the kraft-tex is ink with sepia archival ink.

Try Something New with Kraft-tex

 I finally made time to have some fun with ink stamping and heat embossing. I’ve had a desire to learn how to use stamps and embossing powder for several months now.

image

I’ve been gathering ink pads, stamps, stencils, powders and accessories for 8 months. During that time I have been watching video tutorials too.

image

First, I practiced on white card stock. The leaf stamp is inked with Ranger archival inks: Jet Black, Paradise Teal and Sepia.  Once the paper is stamped with ink, clear embossing powder is spread over the wet ink.  Next ...

Right Angles

 Some might say, at the right angle it’s hip to be square. The latest issue of Quiltmaker Magazine features my newest quilt design, Right Angles.  The 79 x 89 inch quilt is a fast make.

image

Right Angles features Grunge and Bella Solids by Moda Fabrics.  Find Moda Grunge and Bella Solids at  Fat Quarter Shop,  an affiliate.

It’s quilted with a free-motion quilting pattern I call, Boxed In. The “right angles“  fill the light gray background fabric.  Check out my video demo:

Basket of Hope

I am on a basket making frenzy!  Why?  I will submit an application and hope to be accepted in a local outdoor art festival this summer. The artist application requires a photo of your booth/table set-up. So, it means I need to make baskets for the photo as well as for the festival.( Assuming I am accepted.)

image

I try to design/make a few baskets each week to meet my goals.  Since my schedule is over-the-top full, I often double or triple dip projects. One project will cover more than one commitment.  This time I decided ...
