2020 REVIEW - A Basket Making Adventure

2020 was a year for new online ventures and experiences. I joined many who transitioned more personal and work activities to online platforms.

It was exciting to start a new venture with an Amazon Handmade shop!  Living Water Quilter, is not just quilts!   lol  There are baskets made with cotton and nylon rope accented with Kraft-tex, batik fabric and/or beads.

image

Kraft-tex is one of my favorite accents. I like to use the pre-washed designer colors.  The best value are the rolls available by CT Publishing.

2020 REVIEW - A Year in Quilt Magazines

 Wow, 2020 was a wonderful year for sharing my quilt designs in magazines! Several of the quilts are large bed quilts.  Most are easy one or two block patterns. A couple are foundation paper-pieced.

Three Times Three (above)

The “Quilt Parade” begins with “Three Times Three” on the cover of Curated Quilts.  This is my FIRST cover on a quilt magazine.  Exciting!

Making Plans & Planner Covers for 2021

  A new year is coming. It’s around the corner.

Each December I make planner covers from Kraft-tex. Each cover is the PERFECT time to try new techniques and to experiment. 

NOTE: As a C&T Publishing ambassador I received the Kraft-tex to make this project. As an affiliate for CT Publishing and AccuQuilt, I share compensated links at no cost to you.

For my last 2020 Kraft-tex Ambassador project I made several Kraft-tex covers. In addition to other colors, I used  Turquoise Designer Kraft-tex, the color for December 2020

What’s new? Instead of using clear vinyl, how about using a colorful bag from the Dollar Tree store for cover insert sleeves?

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.

Baskets and Labels

Finally, I have labels for my baskets. I needed labels a year ago. I tried a few ideas, but the labels were too big and did not work with the basket style. Then I had an idea I thought would work but could not move forward. My schedule was full so it  had to wait. It became one my first goals for 2020.  

  • The need….small readable logo labels for baskets
  • The idea….DIY labels with Kraft-tex with a logo modification

First, I rehired designer, Gabriel Pons to modify my current logo for small usage. The logo ...

Tic Tac Toe XOXO

Some games we learn and play last a life time.  Did you learn Tic Tac Toe as a child?  It’s a fun thinking game and a precursor to Checkers or Chess.

This is my first project as a 2020 Kraft-tex ambassador for C&T Publishing.  The pouch has Crimson Kraft-tex on one side and vinyl on the other side. It is lined with Island Batik Speakeasy fabric designed by Kathy Engle.

2019 - A Fruitful Year

Is it possible I made all these quilts in 2019?!  A year for me is 10 months. I don’t sew in November and December.  I have been a busy bee!

Let’s take a gallery tour.
