Once Upon a Story: The Pied Piper from Clever Chameleon

The Pied Piper quilt block by Ursula Prandtstetter

It’s Story Time!! Once Upon A Story…..

Once Upon a Story blog hop button

…. there was a hardworking and dedicated quilt blogger at Seams to be Sew. Her name was Marian.

One day, Marian decided to go into the internet forest in search of quilt designers to help create a huge blog hop. A blog hop where there would be a free quilt block pattern at every stop, and lots of prizes too.

Marian’s idea was a huge success. Five years later it was still going strong. It turns out that the internet forest is full of keen designers, quilt magic and readers who like ...

Introducing The Sponsors For Once Upon A Story RAL… from Seams To Be Sew

This is the one event each year where I try very hard to cover each blogger/designer with a giveaway from one of the wonderful companies I’ve been priveleged to work with over these last five years on my blog.

With that said, these are this year’s companies who are sponsoring wonderful giveaways for you to enjoy ...

Broken Panes Quilt Along - Assembling the top from Patterns by Jen

The top is getting pieced together next.

You should have your sashing strips cut and ready to go. If you haven't yet, then go back to the Cutting post for a quick look at how to cut them correctly.

We want our sashing and block ends to match up when sewn, because we won't be trimming these. Pin your sashing to your blocks to make sure they are sewn evenly. Sew with the sashing on top. Follow the pressing arrows in the instruction.

When adding the next block, lay out your blocks to make sure they are all ...

Rockets Red Glare from If These Threads Could Talk

The fabrics used to make this quilt were given to me by Northcott Fabrics.

What I love about EQ8 is once you have drawn a block, you can easily rotate it, edit and change the color.  Rockets Red Glare came about as I was playing with Studio 180 Design’s BlockBuster 12 Double Trek .  This block is made with the Corner Beam , Tucker Trimmer I tools and the Sliver Technique Sheet.

This is the Original BlockBuster 12 Double Trek Block and the quilt layout I first came up with.  It seemed there was too much empty space.

Calm Seas from If These Threads Could Talk

The fabrics featured in this post were given to me by Northcott Fabrics.

A Storm at Sea quilt has been on my “need to make list” for a long time.  I especially love the kind that use graduating colors.  Lucky for me, fellow Studio 180 Design Certified Instructor Michelle Hiatt created her pattern “Calm Seas“.  This fabulous pattern offers you a choice of 3 sizes; Throw, Double or King.  I chose to make the Throw size (62″ x 72”).  Calm Seas is a companion pattern for Studio 180 Design’s Large Square/Squared, Diamond Rects & V Block Tools.

New Years Star from If These Threads Could Talk

The fabrics featured in this post were given to me by Northcott  Fabrics.

This fabulous pattern, “New Year’s Star” by Deb Tucker is fun to make using your V Block & Tucker Trimmer I tools.  It can be made in 3 sizes: 50″ x 66″, 66 x 82″ & 82 x 102″.  I love pink and aqua & retro fans.  I guess you can say the photo above shows my fan club (HAHAHAHA).
