Challenge recap for "A Stitch in Time":

Literally or figuratively interpret the idiom "a stitch in time saves nine"

So seven years ago I bought some little fabric panels with a print that had comfy arm chairs with quilts on them, plus the same quilt with all twelve blocks showing, but I didn't know what I was going to do with them. So for almost every ...

Sewing & Embroidery Round-up from Sylvia Stitches



I've done a smorgasbord of various embroidery, sewing, and in-the-hoop projects over the last couple of months.  Thought I could go through them here for inspiration and list their pattern and design sources...

Holly-day Jiffy Jacket

At the Original Sew & Quilt Expo last fall, I stopped at Jennifer Amor's booth and picked up this jacket-from-a-sweatshirt pattern and kit.  I've been wanting to try and make a jacket from a sweatshirt.  I thought this pattern was cute, but what I really liked was that she had a kit available  All of the materials where already precut, and included ...

Happy Valentine’s Day from Goer

The products featured in this post were given to me by Island Batik, including products from Hobbs and Aurifil.

My second project as an Island Batik Ambassador was to make a small Valentine for a friend. I opted to make two mug rugs in honor of Galentine’s Day, a celebration of some of my best gal pals.

 

I chose to use four of the fabrics from my Valentine's Island Batik bundle. As soon as I saw the bundle I knew I had to feature the print on the top (which I think is Mixed Berry Mini Dots from ...

Sewing in the Rain from Gray Barn Designs

It was a rainy weekend here in Ohio and I was recovering from a terrible cold.  I was down but not out!  I just sewed and sewed and sewed.  Here are some of my masterpieces (if I do say so myself)!

I made this Sweet Heart Mug Rug for my friend who loves cats (you can download our  free pattern by clicking on this link:  Sweet Heart Mug Rug).  Aren’t these cats the cutest?  They are left over from some Cotton + Steel fabric scraps I had on hand.

Free Pattern for Sweet Heart Mug Rug from Gray Barn Designs

It’s almost Valentine’s Day and I wanted to make something special for mom.  I had some extra fabric from my Heartland Modern 01 10 18 quilt and thought I would make a few mug rugs/coasters for her.  Below is my finished product, isn’t it a sweet heart?  (Pun intended!)

Mom’s favorite color is pink and she likes to drink tea.  I thought I would test this mug rug today, strictly for quality control purposes, of course!  Yep, it passed the test!

Mug Rugs from Jan's Quilts


Because life can throw us curveballs, I try to never leave anything to the last minute.  These mug rugs will be part of Valentine's gifts for each of my daughters.  One is a reader and had a pet rabbit when she was a teen; the other has a love affair with foxes.  These will be given with a coordinating mug and other gifties.

The book is paper-pieced, it's a free pattern from Kate Basti called Tall Tales Quilt Block  For the fox, I shrunk the Fancy Fox pattern by Elizabeth Hartman using my mad math skills!
May your ...

FNSI from Quilt Doodle Doodles...

Last night was Friday Night Sew In. I was so thrilled to see that it was still going on. Thank you Wendy for hosting!  I used to join Heidi when she ran it. I always found it to be a great time and I usually got something done that I had been planning to do. Last night was no exception.... I am a quilt pattern designer and my love is applique. I've had a couple of designs for mug rugs sitting on my table for months. I finally got around to making them up into mug rugs. I love ...

Llama Love and Brownies! from Quilt Doodle Doodles...


We've had some really cold days here in Minnesota, I'm so happy to see a warm up in the forecast. With the cold temps, Belvedere and I are still boycotting the weather and staying inside. I have been busy doodling and sewing in the studio. It's been very relaxing. Belvedere, being the puppy that he is looses interest with my sewing space and let's me know quite loudly that he's had enough and wants to go back upstairs where his favorite window and sunny spot is. During one of these breaks I discovered a long ...

A Mug and A Mug Rug Swap from Jan's Quilts


Next month my guild will be two years old; we're a young guild.  This year for our Christmas party we decided to exchange a Mug Rug and a mug.  It was a lot of fun.  Mine is above, I took the fox block from the Fancy Forest quilt pattern and shrank it!  Talk about math skills!  I bought the mug to match and threw in some tea.



The swap is a blind swap, each gift was placed in a brown paper bag and we passed them around.  Above is the gift that landed in my lap.  I am so ...

Pink and Mint from MMM Quilts

Pink and Mint are the new Christmas Red and Green. I couldn't be happier. Don't get me wrong: red and green and gold as well are still right up there in my Christmas colours cupboard, but there is something about this combo, with a little silver bling for a punch, that I love.

I showed you the flimsy that was a near-fail a few weeks ago. I'd not followed my own tutorial instructions closely enough, and had incorrectly oriented the large tree blocks. The mug rug would have been rather tall and skinny as opposed to a ...
