What is a Scrap Quilt? How to Show Off your Unique Style! from Repro Quilt Lover

Scrap quilts are one of the most fun and creative ways to use your fabric stash! A scrap quilt is a style of patchwork quilt, usually pieced, made from many pieces of fabric in varying sizes and patterns. With endless possibilities, it is the perfect way to show off your unique style.

There is a lot of nostalgia associated with quilting and the romantic notion that quilts were made because families couldn’t afford to buy fabrics expressly for the purpose of making a quilt. Many think of scrap quilts as the result of a quilter fondly using leftover fabrics ...

Magic Square Quilt / Ein Geschenk from Quiltmanufaktur

Wer schon einmal bei mir an einen Workshop teilgenommen hat, weiß das ich gerne mitnähe. Ich bin ein sehr visueller Mensch. Das Beibringen fällt mir leichter, wenn ich nicht nur Worte finden muss, sondern direkt zeigen kann, wie es geht. Natürlich nähe ich dann nicht komplett alles parallel, muss ja auch den Teilnehmern über die Schulter schauen... Trotzdem habe ich so mittlerweile das eine-oder-andere UFO in meinen Materialkisten liegen.

Anders hat es sich bei meiner Vorbereitung für den Workshop Magic Squares verhalten. Da hatte ich schon die Idee im Kopf, dass daraus später ein Quilt entstehen sollte. 

Der fertige Quilt ...

Sunshine and Shadow: Manx log cabin coverlet from Charm About You

It would be nice to write about all the things I made this year before the end of the year is up! 

One of the makes I'm most proud of, I finished in early autumn and it had been a while in the making. I started making this coverlet when Jenni Smith taught the Manx log cabin technique at Stitch Gathering in 2019.

Manx log cabin coverlet

This traditional technique involves measuring and ripping fabric strips by hand, folding and sewing the blocks by hand and sewing them together front and then back. I made all the blocks by hand, sewed the fronts ...

An Unexpected Hiatus from Needle and Foot

It has been so long since I have written a post, I hardly know where to begin! From mid-November to now, I have been sick with one thing after another. This has been incredibly annoying! There are so many respiratory viruses going around and I believe I have sampled all of them. Our area has been hit so hard that my primary care physician’s office is unable to see any respiratory/flu cases in person because the staff has come down with it and now they are very short handed. It is just wild. The kids have it the ...

Efterårs nyheder from Patchworkstuen

Sådan et efterår går hurtigt og jeg har kun lavet ganske lidt i min systue.  Dels pga helbredet men også fordi der skulle bygges nyt møbel. Vi har lavet et IKEA HACK, af 3 Kallax reoler og 4 stk Vinliden ben samt 1 stk Målvakt bordplade. Det kom der dette fantastiske og rummelige møbel ud af. Det hele er limet sammen og kan kun komme ud af værelset igen, hvis det bliver vridet/brækket fra hinanden.

Og har købt en super lækker frisør stol, for at passe på min ryg. Den er skøn at sidde på.

I øjeblikket er jeg ...

My Current Favorite from Needle and Foot

This quilt has been a long time in the works. It is ‘just a patchwork’, no complicated piecing, no fussy blocks, but oh I have wanted to make it for a really long time! There are a some really gorgeous quilts made with very bold colors which totally appeal to me. A while back, I started to collect pieces with powerful color and scale. When I had my shop, I would cut 1/3 yard of pieces that appealed to me and set them aside in a project bag. I got lucky at thrift stores and garage sales a number ...
