Fun While It Lasted from The Snarky Quilter

Here’s yet another “classic” post from 2016. You guessed it, I’m still on vacation. This post is especially pertinent as I have just dropped my Modern Quilt Guild membership. I don’t know why it took me so long. Maybe I kept hoping the direction would swing away from all the patterns.

With QuiltCon West underway in California it seems a good time to declare that I am over modern quilting, as defined by current modern quilt practitioners. Back in 2012 I had high hopes for a bolder, less pretty, more personally defined approach to quilting. I read ...

Design Wall Monday - what a mess! from Sue Daurio's Quilting Adventures

 Ok, it took me until Wed to share my messy unorganized design wall.  I really wasn't going to share for a couple of reasons.  One it really doesn't look like who I am as a quilter.  But then I thought, wait a minute, there were no little quilt fairies that put that stuff up.  But if there are quilt fairies, I must say I have a list of things they can do!! And number two the projects that I really want to be working on aren't there.....maybe this can be a goal for a future Design ...

Quilt pattern with star blocks from Pieced Brain

Quilt pattern with star blocks

This quilt pattern with star blocks will brighten your home or make a friend happy! Choose your favorite fabrics and get sewing!

Photo by American Quilter. Used with permission.

I love everything about my latest quilt called Market Star: the fabrics I chose, the borders, the whole design. The geometric lines are complemented by the floral and dots prints and lend a modern vibe to the quilt. Change the palette for a traditional piece that will add happiness to any decor.

Market Star measures 72″ x 72″, and the blocks finish at 9″ and 12″. It is perfect as a ...

AIRING OF THE QUILTS 2022 from Kwilty Pleasures

I have attended the Sarasota Modern Quilt Guilds outdoor show
several times.  I get sew excited just thinking about this one.

I don't have all the makers names, sew just enjoy the pics
and pretend you are there with me, enjoying all the amazing
makers and makes.

THIS was my favorite!
I am not usually a solid color girl.
These colors set on the charcoal gray...screamed
STOP and look at me.
The quilting in an of itself was amazing.
The maker sent it out for long arm quilting.


A beautiful  traditional Lonestar top

Organizing - before and after from Crazy Quilter on a Bike!

Ready or not -- I'm as prepped as I can be for my first session of serger events in French. Yikes --- it's like a whole new language! OK -- so it is a whole new language. I remember so many things in French, but I never sewed in French, and my vocabulary of things sewing is well -- limited. What are tweezers called? (pinces) - what are those loopers called? (boucleur inférieur and boucleur supérieur and boucleur chaine). (Sorry -- I don't have time for the accents!)  I mean -- it's one thing to talk about a subject, and I could go ...

Drunkard’s Path quilt using interfacing from Pieced Brain

Drunkard’s Path quilt using interfacing

Make a Drunkard’s Path quilt using interfacing for a quick alternative to the slow traditional process of curved sewing! Check out a couple of projects I made with it: nope, I am not making money on this post – just showing you a product that I liked working with and that can be a great way to tackle projects that are a bit more involved to make when using traditional curved piecing.

I made this quilt a few summers ago using a Moda Fabrics charm pack (5″ squares) and yardage of a light cream fabric for the background. I love ...

Ditto Quilt from The Cutting Table Quilt Blog - A Blog for Quilters by Quilters

Ditto Quilt by Jenny Doan of the Missouri Star Quilt Company.

Mastering a new quilt block is like learning to ride a bike. You may feel a bit intimidated. Your uncertainty might cause a few wobbly stitches.

Ditto by Jenny Doan of the Missouri Star Quilt Company.

Lone Star Quilt from Let's Begin Sewing

A lone star quilt has long been on my bucket list of quilts to make. When I signed up for Sarah Bond 's workshop that was about variations with a lone star block, I decided to stick with the traditional pattern. 

I have lately been experimenting with colors I normally would not work with which includes darker backgrounds, non primary colors, hues and shades I rarely see in my Instagram feed. One of the best ways to pick these colors is that they are the ones that are usually not sold out at a fabric store. :)

Anyway for this quilt ...

Orange Creamsicle {a finish} from Factotum of Arts

As QuiltCon Together approaches (02/18/2021) I thought I would share this quilt that made it into the virtual show but had not made it onto my blog so far. 

Say hello to Orange Creamsicle. Orange Creamsicle started with a single block that I had hoped would be a great compliment to the rest of the Sunday Best blocks.

IMG_6340

To be honest the block just didn’t really work with the rest of quilt. Yes, that became the start to Orange Creamsicle.

I introduced some limits to this quilt after the first block, as I really wanted to try ...

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.

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