Painting My Rabbit Hutch and Puttering around from The Free Motion Quilting Project

Hello my quilting friends, and welcome to Podcast #104! This week I’m organizing, cleaning, painting, reorganizing, and just generally putting around. Just a few days ago I massively cleaned up my workshop, so I decided it was time to do the same thing in my upstairs quilting room.

Listen to this podcast or download it to your computer using this player:

We’re going to raise Champagne D’Argent bunnies. I put together this hutch using mostly scrap wood from previous projects. It’s designed to hold the rabbit cages inside so they’re easy to access and clean ...

Log Cabins and a Giveaway! from The Sassy Quilter

Log Cabins!

 

Aren’t they so fun? I live in one so I am a little biased:)

I bought this quilt kit from Fat Quarter Shop HERE and am slowly working my way through these blocks. 

The fabric line used is Smitten by Bonnie and Camille for MODA Fabrics.

Sweet Escape is a Thimble Blossoms pattern by  Camille Roskelley.

Log Cabin blocks are not super quick, but do look awesome when your done.

I just love these sweet fabrics.

This will be the first entire quilt I have made with just log cabin blocks.  

It finishes at 80 x 80 ...

Log Cabin Update from Urban Quilter

I finished some more log cabin blocks this week, for a grand total of 108 blocks, and have begun sewing them all together into a top. I took some pictures of layout options and put them on instagram over the weekend.
A local quilt guild donates wheel-chair-sized quilts (inspired by the "lovie lap quilt") to nursing homes and that is what I am going to make with these bright and cheerful blocks. The target size is 32x39 (though a friend in the guild said some of them are 36" wide by as much as 48" long). My original layout was ...

Log Cabin Update from Urban Quilter

I have finished 24 log cabin blocks since my last LC update which brings me to a total of 48 done. I have the centers sewed to white squares for 48 more. This week's picture is the most likely set for my quilt as I love how log cabin blocks look set in the barn raising pattern. I did not arrange these blocks very well for the picture as all the yellow is in clumps. Will need to be careful about that when it comes time to arrange the quilt top.


I am linking up this week with Log ...

Log Cabin Update from Urban Quilter

I have finished a dozen more little log cabin blocks this week. 

12 little log cabin blocks finished this week
I did some organizing of my strips, making them into piles of 6 and pinning them so I can chop off a stack of pieces in the length I need for the next round in the blocks and that has sped up the process a bit. I have not been cutting the logs exactly to length as I go along but have sewed the pieces on and then cut off the excess from each block with shears before I finger ...

Log Cabin Loonies from Urban Quilter

My basket of 1" strips ready to sew
I was reading Quilting is More Fun than Housework (which is a great name for a blog!) late last week and came across a project called Log Cabin Loonies hosted on JulieKQuilts. There was a post back in August about making little log cabin blocks from strings and I was totally inspired!
I have a HUGE bag of strips/scraps that I have been saving to make string quilts from. I have made a couple string quilts in recent years but the bag is so full you can't even tell I ...

Amazing Day in Hart Square from The Free Motion Quilting Project

What do you get when you turn a quilter, a writer, a blacksmith, and a kid loose in a historical log cabin village? A really, really good day!


On Saturday, Dad, Josh, James, and I went to Hart Square for their Founder's Day celebration. Hart Square is an amazing place built by Bob and Becky Hart and their family. Click Here to learn more about Hart Square.

It's hard to describe this exactly, but this seems the most fitting. Quilters collect fabric, knitters collect yarn, blacksmiths and welders collect metal.

Bob Hart collected log cabins!


This is actually ...
