Just Because from Alamosa Quilter

I've had the materials for this bag sitting next to my sewing machine for several weeks. Last weekend I decided to set aside the shop sewing I needed to do and make something for myself. This was handy and quick.


This Moda Man comic print canvas is too funny! It was one of those things that when I saw it I knew I had to have some for my shop. For the lining I used the light blue polka dot print that is also on the straps. 

It's just a simple tote bag. No pockets, zippers, magnetic snaps ...

Shoofly Crossing in some Fig Tree favorites from Carried Away Quilting

Hello quilting friends!  Do you remember my Shoofly Crossing pattern that I released in January? The original quilt featured a sweet pastel fabric collection with fussy cut bunnies.  Today I’m excited to show you Shoofly Crossing in a completely different look, featuring colors and prints that are totally me!



This is Shoofly Crossing in Chestnut Street prints from Fig Tree & Company for Moda. Most of you know by now that I am a Fig Tree nut, and I also love using red, black and green in my quilts.  That color combination always calls to me and seems to fit ...

June Round the Corner blocks: Patchwork Quilt Along with Fat Quarter Shop from Carried Away Quilting

Hello quilting friends! Can you believe we’re already six months into the 2017 Patchwork Quilt Along with Fat Quarter Shop? I sure have enjoyed the process of sewing just a few cute blocks each month. 

Last month I shared my six Homestead blocks and 10 piecing tips. This month's block is called Round the Corner.  Although there are a lot of pieces in this block, the construction is super simple and they are so pretty!



Wouldn't it be fabulous to make an entire quilt from Round the Corner blocks? Just imagine the blocks with some sashing and ...

Countdown to Christmas from Becca's Crazy Projects

I got back to work on Countdown to Christmas. This time I loaded it up and got quilting.
I seem to be on a swirls kick lately. Not that swirls are a problem. They are a great go-to all-over or background fill.
This isn't a small quilt. I did luck out by finding a wide backing that matched the border fabrics so I only needed 2 1/8 yards of backing.
See how nice those swirls are? Now I just need to bind it and another quilt will be finished.

Impressions from Spring Quilt Market 2017 from Professional Quilter

 

The Spring 2017 edition of International Quilt Market took place in St. Louis this year. As always I’m inspired and energized by what I see. Overall, I thought the colors looked clear and fresh, which I like. I saw several lines with words and/or letters. And, the inclusion of clothing patterns continues. Here are more specifics.

A major theme in Michael Miller booth was Paper Doll, which featured four wall quilts with fabric (as opposed to paper) doll bodies. You or your children or grandchildren create clothes and stick them to the dolls. A wonderful way ...

This was my second Spring Market, but my third overall Quilt Market.  I had several reasons for going to this market.  First of all, I had 2 quilts hanging on the showroom floor, so I want to see them. Secondly, I want to learn and lastly, I want to try to make a few more contacts.

May Homestead blocks: Patchwork Quilt Along with Fat Quarter Shop from Carried Away Quilting


It's the middle of May, which means it's time for another update on the 2017 Patchwork Quilt Along with Fat Quarter Shop.  Last month I shared my six Star & Cross Blocks, and this month we make our Homestead blocks. These blocks are much easier to put together, as there aren't any tricky seams to match.   




I am using the Fleurs collection by Brenda Riddle (Moda) for my quilt. Every month when I pull out this fabric, I fall in love with Fleurs all over again.  It's so soft and dreamy, and Brenda's tiny floral details ...

Hello quilting friends! Recently I shared my newest pattern with you, Harmony, a fat quarter quilt based on a 3-color concept. Today I'm sharing photos of a different colorway for Harmony. This lovely quilt was made by my friend, Sylvia.  



Sylvia also used Coney Island fabric (Fig Tree & Company for Moda), but she selected navy, orange, and yellow. Isn’t this a warm, rich combination? (Thank you, Sylvia, for letting me share your beautiful make!)





Below is a photo of my original Harmony quilt, sewn up in pale aqua, red and tan from the Coney Island collection. I just ...
