Tula Spider Mini Quilt from In the Boondocks

"Spider Mini Quilt"

Size: 9 1/2" x 9 1/2"

Fabrics: Spider & Borders - Holiday Homies, Tula Pink, Freespirit, Background & Backing - miscellaneous 5" solid squares Binding -Rocacco Grunge, Moda

Threads: Piecing & Quilting - Aurifil 50 wt thread 2000 (Light Sand), Raw Edge Applique - Aurifil 50 wt thread 2692 (Black) Binding - Aurifil 50 wt thread 2250 (Red)

So who takes the Christmas fabric and makes a Halloween mini quilt?

That would be me!


Print and cut out a random spider 3" or so. This helped when I raw edge applicated it on the 5" square! But I am getting ahead of myself. I outlined the spider on some iron on double sided interfacing! Then centered everything on the red cross in the green square. Ironed it on the 5" x 5" square. Sewed the raw edge applique then the web string. I am sure there is a better word, but I cannot think of it! Sew the 2 1/2" borders on, match at top, trim! I do sides first then top and bottom. Make a quilt sandwich and start quilting! Trying to think like a spider is hard so it is pretty straight but at an angle! Not the greatest quilting but I did it myself! Trim and square up! Sew on your binding, mine is 2" wide! Hand sew the back of binding down, I think it looks better even if I hate doing it. Tip: The more you do the faster you get!

Hope you like it! Lisa

Triangles from Charm About You

It is always good to challenge yourself with different techniques. This table runner has y-seams, angled edges and a few points to keep pointy. Funnily the thing that I struggled with the most was the self cover button, turns out I had the back piece the wrong way round!

Cappuccino's and Quilts- Wood Trails Mini Quilt Tutorial from Art Gallery Fabrics-The Creative Blog

Hi Sewing Friends, 

I know it's not quite hot chocolate weather but October's AGFcolorfun color of the month has me feeling all warm and tingly inside! This months color is Cappuccino! This warm, woodsy color was such a refreshing shade to work with. I am used to using a lot of color and tend to shy away from neutral fabrics but after designing the Wood Trails mini quilt I am all about it! The Wood Trails mini measures out to be 16" x 16" and would make perfect throw pillows for the holiday season ahead.


 Here is what ...

Mini Quilts - Hamsters, Raccoons and a Rainbow Unicorn from Sew Fresh Quilts

Rainbow Unicorn 24" x 24"

No one can say that I haven't kept myself busy lately.

This week I finished 3 mini quilts!

The first mini quilt is the Rainbow Unicorn. The pattern provides instructions for three different sizes. I chose the one that finishes at 24" square.

I have made it before. You can view my other Rainbow Unicorn finishes here.

This time I used the "spiral" horn option.

The Rainbow Unicorn pattern provides instructions for three sizes. The blocks are 10" 20" and 40" square and finish at 12", 24" and 48" square including the borders.

Mini Quilts and a Quilted Pillow from Sew Fresh Quilts

My Pet Hamster mini quilt 24" x 26"

I have been feeling a little stressed lately. But sewing helps!

Even just ironing fabric helps.

My thoughts are all over the place.
I'm all over the place.

And this post is really all over the place.

These two mini quilts have been on my mental bucket list for quite a while now. So after finishing the Panda Please quilt I shared on Friday, I cut into those new fabrics I recently purchased and made up the Raccoon mini quilt shown below.

And the next day I made the My Pet ...

A Binary Opposition from Quilt Art by Olena Pugachova

I've got a question for you that's sure to split people in two camps:

This is my entry for a challenge themed "Binary" (meaning you can use only two colours of fabric in your quilt). I wanted to make it binary not just in colours, but also in the subject and chose this familiar opposition.

I made a sketch and then played with it in Adobe Illustrator and Photoshop:

But although I like the cup mandalas, I decided against using them in the quilt, just printed out the letter outlines to make the appliqué. I used freezer paper ...

Fabric Postcard Swap – Yes this is a thing! from Childlike Fascination

When I saw Trina, @anotterlife on Periscope and blogs at in An Otter Life, was hosting a postcard swap I jumped on that like I pull into fabric shop parking lots: hard and fast!

Apparently if you adhere to some basic postcard principles you can create a fabric post card with some stabilizer and fabric. Who’da thunk?

My Inspiration and sketch for my Woodland Postcard Swap

I didn’t want to share a lot of photos on Instagram ahead of time because my swap partner is the host and I guessed she might know I had her :) But look how cute my postcard came out I kind-of wanted ...
