Quick Curve Ruler from Quilt Collection M.

Wie oft habe ich schon den Quick Curve Ruler aus der Schublade gezogen und einen Quilt daraus gemacht? Ganz ehrlich: Ich weiß es nicht. Nachher suche ich mal die entsprechenden Quilts heraus...

Die drei Sew Kind of Wonderful Damen haben wieder ein neues kostenloses Muster auf ihre Webseite gestellt und natürlich wollte ich das ausprobieren. Außerdem habe ich noch einige schöne gekaufte QCR-Muster zu Hause liegen. Die müssen ja auch getestet werden.

I love the Quick Curve Ruler and the Mini Curve Ruler of the Sew Kind of Wonderful sisters. That´s no secret. I love to cut with it ...

noodlehead pencil pouch from Crazy Mom Quilts

Welcome to finish it up Friday!

A few weeks ago, my friend, Anna, generously shared a tutorial for her canvas pencil pouches(available here) and I've been wanting to make some ever since. Actually, she showed the pouches on her blog before that, and I have wanted to make them since then, so it's been awhile! She has such a great style and aesthetic.... it's hard to not want to copy everything she makes. Her work is so inspiring!

I finally took the time to make a pouch yesterday, and I absolutely love it! It was a ...

FREE Sew Along Dandy Drive Block 3 from Pat Sloan's Blog

Time for Part 2 of Dandy Drive Sew Along, designed by my good friend Sarah Maxwell of Designs by Sarah J.... Time to sew the next part of the flower...

Pat Sloan Dandy Drive Block 3

"Block 3"  are the stems! 

I used the same fabric for each stem, but you could mix it up and make it scrappy.

Here is my reveal of a 2 flower 1 butterfly version, It will have red binding but I think it needs just a little something 'else'. You'll have to stay tuned to see what I share!

Rondom... lapjes, restjes en scraps! from Ellie's Quilt Place


Lapjes, restjes, scraps,... het maakt niet uit hoe je het wil noemen. Kleine stukjes stof, gekregen, geruild of overgebleven van een vorige quilt, of soms een klein stukje geknipt uit een groter lapje. Ze vliegen hier in het rond (soms letterlijk als er weer een Monster mee aan de wandel gaat) en allemaal krijgen ze een plaatsje in mijn Carousel quilt.

Fabric, leftover pieces, scraps,... it doesn't really matter how you call them. Small pieces of fabric I received as a gift, swapped, leftover from another quilt or sometimes a small piece cut from a larger fabric. They're ...

feathered heart from Texas Quilting

20170419_103432I’m nearly finished cutting squares out of shirts and am starting to make the first practice block so I can get an idea of how it’s going to look.  There are 2 alternating blocks for a triple Irish quilt (or any Irish quilt for that matter).  Separately, they don’t look like much but the magic happens when you string several pairs together.  Or at least that’s the plan!  This project has been a lot more challenging than I thought it would – there’s an art to getting the most squares out of a shirt and since ...

EPP methodology from Crazy Mom Quilts

Thank you so much for the great response to my focus quilt! Apparently I won't be making this quilt alone, which is super fun! I will be anxiously waiting to see other versions of it popping up. Thanks to all of you who purchased the templates!

I thought it would be a good time to share some of my methodology when it comes to EPP (English paper piecing). Please remember that this is simply one way of doing things, not the end all, be all. I hope you pick up some tips that will be helpful to you.

DIY Four Circle Table Topper with Bernina Circular Embroidery Attachment from Mulberry Patch Quilts

I’ve been eyeing a special attachment for my Bernina sewing machine for quite some time.  I was at Mill House Quilts in Waunakee this past week, where they have all the newest Bernina sewing machines along with a great assortment of attachments and feet.  Then I saw it, they had it in stock!, so I finally decided to buy it — the Circular Embroidery Attachment.  (cue the trumpets) Ta da!

I have lots of ideas of how I  want to use the attachment (none of which included embroidery–hehe), so I got online to find a few YouTube videos to ...

Ostern ist gelb.... from Quilt Collection M.

...und gelb ist wie das Licht und die Sonne. Und wer mag im Augenblick keine Sonne? Damit war meine Farbwahl für das nächste kleine Projekt getroffen. Tatsächlich habe ich einige gelbe Stoffe. Ich konnte also aus meinem Fundus arbeiten.

Bei Katharina habe ich ein schönes Tutorial für ein Osterei-Tassen-Mug Rug gesehen. Gesehen und nachgebastelt. Ein weiteres Tutorial mit gequilteten Osterhäschen zeigt Lori Kennedy. Die beiden Sachen - gestreiftes Osterei und die gequilteten Motive- mal eben verbinden und schon gibt es super schöne Mug Rugs und Tischsets.  Und vor allem kann man wieder einmal wunderbar das Freemotion Quilting üben mit einem netten ...

focus quilt-the beginning from Crazy Mom Quilts

So far in my quilting journey, I've made 3 hand stitched quilts. They are really time consuming, but they are also extra special! Two of the quilts shown below are made from hand appliqued blocks, (which are then machine pieced) and the third one was English paper pieced, which means that it was all hand stitched, except for the binding. The first one is apple cake (center), the second one is oh my stars (right), and the third one, which is one of my most recent finishes, is called dot your i's (left). I love having a photo ...

harvest sweater complete from Crazy Mom Quilts

Welcome to finish it up Friday!

Last year, my one crafty goal was to knit myself a sweater. It's April, so I did not meet my timeline, but I am still very pleased that my harvest sweater is complete! I am over the moon with the results!!! After blocking the sweater, it has just the right amount of slouch and it feels so cozy. I don't know that I'm going to ever take it off. Hurray!

I am neither a photographer OR a model....so this photo was a huge stretch for me. (Thank goodness for cropping ...

Feathers – complete! from Texas Quilting

20170411_115135Another crazy week in our house.  We found a crack in the shower in our bathroom and the short answer is that the best thing to do is to replace it.  We didn’t even get one with all the bells and whistles but home improvement is never cheap.  It will be 8-10 weeks before they’re ready to install it so you’ll probably hear about that in a couple of months – haha!

And my husband found out today that he has shingles.  He doesn’t even remember ever having the chicken pox as a child but apparently he ...

Gwennie-Inspired Liberated Medallion Reveal! from Indigo Threads

 Today is the day!  The stars have aligned properly and I can finally show you my completed quilt.  Yay!

This was the beginning block - a liberated basket

This wall quilt was the result of my participating in the Gwennie-Inspired Medallion Quilt Along with Lori at Humble Quilts blog.  Since I love all things Gwen Marston, I thought it would be fun to play along.

We were supposed to begin our quilts with a liberated basket.  I had the basket already made - I had made it in a Liberated Basket class with Gwen I took a couple of years ago.  I ...
