June is “Try It” month for the Island Batik Ambassadors, where we get free rein to choose a technique that we haven’t done before and give it a whirl on any project. New technique, Island Batik fabrics; that’s it for the rules.

So, I thought – “It is about time I tried the traditional method of paper-piecing”….. you know the one….. the method with the actual foundation paper. </p>

Emerald Pillow Finish from Dizzy Quilts

I have my first finish of 2019 to share today! I actually finished it last week, but I had to travel to Phoenix, Arizona for work this week so wasn't able to blog about the pillow until now.


I listed this on my Q1 list for the 2019 FAL here. I'm very pleased to have this one done because it had been sitting on my sewing table since November. This is a pattern by Andrea of 3rd Story Workshop and I actually made the whole top during a workshop with Andrea but then never got the opportunity to ...

Mary's November Finish from Urban Quilter

The last circle pieced and ready to set into a block
My November Project (#5 on my 2018 Forward Progress list) was my Tropical Quilt. The goal for the month was to applique the 2 centers that remained to do at that point and to figure out the setting of the circles into the blocks. I completed the centers so I now have 12 complete mainer's compass circles. I cut and assembled a set of background pieces, but the sizing still wasn't right. I realized that I may not have enough of the background fabric--the method in the ...

Mary's November Start from Urban Quilter


Some of the finished block centers
Project #5 on my 2018 Forward Progress list is my Tropical Quilt. Since I made my list I have made some progress on this monster project. I have completed paper piecing all 12 mariners' compass centers (I had 3 to go when I made the list) and have appliqued the centers into all but 2 of them. The next step to move this project forward is to cut and assemble the background pieces for each block and get them all pinned up for hand appliqueing the compasses to the background. I did one of ...

Little Trees Quilt from All Things Quilty

I finished my first quilting project of 2018 this week!  I really have not been doing much sewing since we moved to the mountains, but finally I have unpacked everything in the basement studio and uncovered the Gammill longarm.


Little Trees quilt, Jeanne Turner McBrayer

I paper-pieced these trees for another project back in the nineties.  My mother-in-law had painted her kitchen and asked for a wall quilt to go over the breakfast nook.  I bought a pattern and made lots of these little trees and some very nice flying geese blocks.  Then she said, "Never mind, I bought a ...

Modern Plus Signs Quilts - Cat-Eye-doscope from MMM Quilts

Welcome to my stop on Day 3 of the Modern Plus Signs Quilts Book Blog Hop. This is a terrific book, great ideas for new twists on Plus Sign quilts, lovely photography, and excellent instructions.

When I first heard that Cheryl had a book coming out with Paige, I right away emailed Cheryl, asking  if she was considering doing a book release hop, could I be a part of it. I've been a fan of Cheryl's designs for some time. She won my very first giveaway on my blog a few years ago.

"Small, smaller, smallest"... A Blog Hop from quiltscapes


Hi, and welcome to Quiltscapes!  The quilts I make are becoming smaller.  Is it just me, or has this happened to you, too?  When I first dabbled in quilting, I made quilts for everyone in my family.  King size, queen size, no matter that they dragged on the floor around the kids' beds.  Once those were made and everyone's beds were all covered, I thought, what now?  I was hooked and wanted to make more!

Next were lap quilts and couch throws. Then wall hangings and table toppers and table runners for every occasion/season/excuse imaginable.  Then came ...
