Fertig from Grit's Life

Hallo Ihr Lieben,

mein Kaleidoskop aus 45 Grad Dreiecken hat endlich einen Rand bekommen und ist nun unterwegs zu (Werbung) Birgit Schüller  zum quilten. Ich bin gespannt und freue mich darauf.

An meinen Weihnachtssachen sind die Bindings dran :-) Danke an Mama

Einen schnellen Weihnachtskalender habe ich aus 2 verschiedenen Weihnachtsserien genäht. Die Idee hat eine Freundin im www gesehen. Jetzt werde ich die Zahlen an die Täschchen machen, wahrscheinlich mit kleinen Klammern.

Fabulous Fabric Series - My FREE Halloween tablerunners! from Pat Sloan's Blog

Post 3 of 4 in my Fabric Fabric - Halloween edition, is all about Panels and table runners! Both are SUPER fast to stitch up and magically change you room 

Chillingsworth pic 2

Panels are GREAT for decorating. Fast, easy, and cute! Or spooky in the case of Mr. Chillingsworth. I'm rather fond of him myself.

I made this for my niece who loves all things spooky.  The panel is still available but the companion fabrics are not. BUT you can find other fabulous fabrics and do this basic idea for ANY panel with my directions. 

  • Make your panel the size of my ...

Stitch Gathering 2018 from Charm About You

Real life wobbles, true friends and bunches of creativity! //

There is something so special about spending time with kindred spirits; especially those people that understand fabric love, why we cut up fabric and sew it back together, the procraftination brought about by a quilt needing to be basted, etc. Quilt retreats are the place where we can enjoy talking about sewing and actually doing it! Earlier this month I went to the Stitch Gathering, organised by lovely Jo Avery of mybearpaw. I taught in 2017 and was thrilled to be asked to teach again this year. 

Jo has this fun ...

Sheri Cifaldi-Morrill has a wonderful story about her block and again, it's NYC that inspires her, But not the whole city, just one special place that captured her heart.

This is a paper pieced block, but it's not hard. It is also not symmetrical. Below are some of my tips!

black licorice-a completed quilt top from Crazy Mom Quilts

I finished my black licorice quilt top! I worked on it quite a bit over the weekend and I was delighted to discover this morning that I only had 2 seams left to complete it. What a way to start a Monday!
Each piece finishes at 1 1/2" x 2". There are 42 blocks in each row and 37 rows, for a total of 1,554 pieces!!!! It's a good thing I did the math AFTER the quilt top was complete rather than before, otherwise that might have been a little daunting. Ha!
I think it's tricky ...

Gingerbread House Quilt by Gracey Larson in Love Patchwork and Quilting magazine

Who can resist such an adorable quilt pattern?! It is seasonal cuteness at it's best. This beautiful Gingerbread House quilt  by Gracey Larson features in the latest Love Patchwork & Quilting magazine, issue 66 out now.

The blocks are all traditionally pieced using easy methods like corner squares triangles. Row-by-row quilts are so appealing, the neat structure appeals to my organised side and the possibility of easily mixing things up pleases the rebel in me! Full of sweet blocks, the quilt is made up of the Gingerbread man, Candy cane, Gumdrops, Mint sweet, Tree cookie and Hot chocolate blocks. I ...

Posey Quilts grand opening! from Texas Quilting

Hear ye! Hear ye! Posey Quilts has officially opened its doors and is ready for business!  We literally just finished up the website redesign which means many of the products are still being added (that’s a manual process, adding them each individually) but we at least have a start.

We are starting off by selling digital quilt designs for computerized long armers. My goal is to have 1500 unique designs in there and I’m working to draw them as fast as I can.  I also plan to offer precuts using Accuquilt dies I have.  This can cover anything ...

Acres of diamonds from Texas Quilting

PC quiltI remember in business school years ago one of the phrases we were taught about was called “acres of diamonds”.  The phrase was created by Russell Conwell in the 1800’s and it meaning was each person can find their own “acres of diamonds” in their own back yard.  Close to where they live, work, have relationships. The idea is that many of us look outside for success instead of within ourselves. If I won the lottery I would….  If I get promoted at work I plan to….  Once the kids are out of the house we are going to ...

etc.-a new work in progress from Crazy Mom Quilts

I've been resisting starting a new project for the past several weeks. After a lovely trip down to Iowa for teaching last weekend (and 500 miles of time to think), I cracked. I HAD to start something new or I was afraid I would explode. SO many ideas. SO little time. I know, it's a great problem to have. I wouldn't have it any other way.
The funny part is, when I went downstairs to sew, I thought I was going to start a specific project that I had sketched out on graph paper. I had worked ...

patchwork potholder (a quick tutorial) from Sotak Handmade

I really, really enjoy sewing up projects for our home so when I realized we needed new potholders I was more than happy to drop everything and get stitching.

I think it turned out quite lovely  :)

I started off with some of my screen printed scraps and a few pieces of Essex linen (my favorite combo), and randomly pieced them together until my patchwork measured about 7.5'' x 8.5''. This measurement wasn't really important as potholders could definitely be smaller or larger depending on one's preference.

I then quilted my patchwork piece to a layer of ...
