Down to the wire from Sue Daurio's Quilting Adventures

I'm feeling the pressure, I can do this, I can make this happen. I may have a to take a sick day....but we'll see.  Shower date is Mar 4, I have two more Saturday's to get this baby quilted.  I want to learn to do ribbon candy.  My plan to master ribbon candy will be print out about a 50 diamonds and doodling any time I can. Mtgs at work, when they get  a little boring and slow (they're talkers at the office....) I'll just pull out a diamond or two, give it a ...

Challenge Day 3 – Are You My Quilting Peep? from AndiCrafts

I’ve been participating in the #CreativePassiontoProfit 5-day “Get Your Art Out There Challenge”. I’ve missed a few days due to things not working, and having to spend my time dealing with repair people. The internet was down (had to get a new wireless modem), the icemaker in the fridge quit working (they had to replace […]

Modern Baby Quilts - Custom Machine Quilting by Natalia Bonner + Bonus Videos from Piece N Quilt


I recently custom machine quilted a couple of darling baby quilts that were made by my friend/client MaryAnn!

MaryAnn made this darling quilts for a set of twin boys, they're not identical, so even though the quilts are identical MaryAnn let me custom machine quilt them differently, and I love how they turned out! I had a lot of fun machine quilting them.

Challenge Day 2 – What is Your Business Vision? from AndiCrafts

In yesterday’s post for the #CreativePassiontoProfit challenge I told how I got started crafting and how I turned that into a business. The Day 2 question is: “What is the vision for your business? Where do you see yourself in one year, five years, ten years? What is your dream and how will that affect […]

Zigzag Fade quilt from Flying Parrot Quilts

Just popping in to show you Zigzag Fade, a new pattern in Issue #22 (February 2018) of Modern Quilts Unlimited! This is one of the larger quilts I’ve made to date, at 68″ x 87″, but much of it is negative space so it actually comes together pretty quickly—just two blocks, set on point in a fun zigzag pattern!

Unfortunately, I didn’t take a whole lot of pictures of the quilt before sending it off, but I did take one during the quilting process so you can see a little detail. I decided to use the negative ...

Imogene’s Vintage Quilt from Prairie Moon Quilts

Last summer, I worked on restoring a vintage quilt top for my friend, Imogene.

This quilt was made by Imogene’s great-aunt, Emma Salyer (Mrs. James Salyer), when she was young, and Aunt Emma gave it to Imogene as an unquilted top. Imogene says she’s reasonably sure the quilt is at least 100 years old!

Over the years, the white fabric with the black polka dots on it had gone bad. All the black polka dots disintegrated, leaving white fabric with little holes where the polka dots had been!

Imogene wanted to get the quilt finished, but it couldn ...

Couching and Ruler quiltingHave you tried yarn couching? It is a... from Living Water Quilter







Couching and Ruler quilting

Have you tried yarn couching? It is a technique I tried over a year ago. It was an experiment that left me wanting to do more. This time I used the JUKI couching foot on the QVP TL2200S, a sit-down longarm quilting machine.

image

First, the squiggle ruler was used to mark the curves. The JUKI couching foot has two attachments. One has a large hole for thick yarn and one has a smaller hole for thinner yarn. I used the larger hole to couch the yarn along the marked curves.

Then, using the squiggle acrylic ruler ...

Random winter stuff & Almost at the END of the January Challenge from caledonia quilter

In no particular order...
I have a headache today.  This is very unusual for me.

Here is the Binbrook Fold/Rip/Snip Challenge quilt.  Our meeting was cancelled last night because of the sh*tty weather.  Stupid winter.

Here is the back side of the quilt.  Hopefully we will donate these all to the Catholic Children's Aid Society for those poor kids who come to them with nothing but the clothes on their back(s).  What a horrid way to spend your childhood.

This guy was NOT my friend.  Ultimately, he drowned.  Too bad, so sad.

The kitchen can ...

Ultimate Stippling Quilting Tutorial from The Free Motion Quilting Project

I recently realized a lot of my older quilting tutorials on LeahDay.com were looking a little outdated. I've decided to go back in and spice them up with new videos. And what better way to stitch things up a notch, but to also add a new machine to the mix as well!


I'm sharing new Ultimate Quilting Tutorials which feature instructions on quilting a design on your home machine, then on a longarm quilting frame.

Yep, I'm finally ready to show you my very beginner stitching on my Grace Qnique on the Continuum Frame. I'm ...

Donna’s French Sampler from Prairie Moon Quilts

Back on December 15th, I loaded a quilt on the frame that belongs to my friend and customer, Donna. It was supposed to be my second-to-last finish of 2017, but I took 5 days off at Christmas to work on house remodel projects and enjoy the holiday with My Cowboy, and 2 days after Christmas, I came down with pneumonia! So I didn’t get nearly as much quilting done as I had envisioned (which is basically always the case, anyway).

It has taken me all this year to get back on my feet, get back up to speed, and ...

Quiltville's En Provence Quilt and the 2018 Update from caledonia quilter

Several times during the year I work on quilts that I hope never go home to their owner.  This was one of them.  It's the Bonnie Hunter (Quiltville) mystery quilt from 2017 - En Provence.

The maker used a beautiful selection of greys to offset the golds, greens and purples.

She's also a very exacting piecer.

Beautiful show of the quilting on the back side.

An update on the painting:

  • The hallways from the front door, leading down the stairs to my workroom and also up the stairs to the bedrooms are all finished.  Because I KNOW you are ...

Latest Sampler from Gayle Bong Quilts Too

Well It's the end of the year and I have accomplished the goals that I set a few weeks ago. Finishing this Sampler top was on the list.
Making a sampler quilt can be a great way to try new techniques, experiment with color combinations or relieve the boredom that comes with repeating identical blocks and I spose lots of other reasons. I made this for the pure joy of using some fabrics I loved. And I love them more each time I handle the quilt. This is probably the last sampler I'll make for a while. They ...

Still Learning from Gayle Bong Quilts Too

I've been working towards my goal for the end of the year. I've got 2 quilts bound, one ready for binding and the quilting on the last one started. 
 Here they are the finished two.

The more I quilt the more fun it gets.

 When I learned to machine quilt I used clear nylon thread on the top and cotton in the bobbin. It was great because I stitched in the ditch alot back then and if I jumped the curb you couldn't see it. As my skills increased I switched to cotton thread. I never liked ...
