Simple Patchwork from Sew Some Sunshine

Here's a rectangular patchwork throw quilt made with a scrap pack of fabric that I picked up quite a few years ago from Southern Fabric.  They put together WOF ends and sell them as a group.  I love the palette on this one, all I had to do was add a few extra fabrics from my stash to maximize what was in the scrap pack.  Most of the strips had at least six inches of width, so I made six by seven inch rectangles and decided on an eight by eight layout.  

The quilting is an edge to edge ...

Inaktiv over længere tid from Patchworkstuen

Jeg er desværre ramt af sygdom og får kun syet ganske lidt og kun i hånden.

Pga gigt og nervesmerter kan jeg ikke holde til at sidde ved symaskinen og derfor bliver der ikke produceret noget som helst i systuen.

På torsdag og fredag skal min mand og jeg have vores første vaccination mod Covid-19 og så begynder det hele da at nærme sig normale tilstande igen </p>

A Four-Patch in a Square Scrap Quilt - Part 2 from Red Pepper Quilts

 A Finished Quilt

A Four-Patch in a Square Quilt  © Red Pepper Quilts 2021

At last an update! I finished this quilt late last year however the process of taking photos has eluded me until very recently. A week or two ago I got my dusty camera out and photographed the four quilts that I have made - or at least finished - so far this year. It's then taken longer still to edit and upload photos but here we are today with a blog post!

AccuquiltGo Sawtooth Star: Get Mileage Out of the Dies You Own from Mulberry Patch Quilts

You’ll see in my recent posts that I’m obsessed with learning how much mileage I can get with my Accuquilt GO!Cutter and the dies I already own.

I love the simplicity of the Sawtooth Star block and so I decided to see if I could design some pieced items with it using the dies I have.

Although I don’t own the 8” Go!Cube, I have almost all the shapes (see those in bold print on the list below). The only one shape I was missing was for the “flying geese” part of the star: the ...

Tuesday Tips: AccuquiltGo Chisel Die & Braid Strip from Mulberry Patch Quilts

Since I last talked about my new obsession with my AccuquiltGo cutter (see last post) I’ve been busy trying out the dies I already own to make as many different blocks as I can. It’s fun to take apart a block and find the die shapes to make them. While playing, I discovered a new use for my Chisel Die.

Well, I didn’t really discover it—lots of other quilters discovered this… But I discovered their discovery (thank you Pinterest). So of course I couldn’t wait to give it a try!

Did you know you can ...

AccuquiltGo! Thoughts & Bear’s Paw Block from Mulberry Patch Quilts

I purchased an Accuquilt Go die cutter awhile ago and have made so many great projects with it, including tumbler block baby quilts and Dresden Plate table toppers. But I wanted to use a combination of dies to create some other basic, well-known quilting blocks.

My original purchase of my AccuquiltGo! included a combination die (above). It has on it a 2” finished square, a couple 2” finished half square triangles (HST), and a 4” finished square.

Hey, that’s all I need to make the basic Bear’s Claw block! Perfect.

I haven’t yet purchased any of the ...

Wie die Zeit vergeht... trotz des immer noch andauernden Alptraums from Quilt Around

Hoppla, jetzt ist ja schon fast Mai und ich habe seit über vier Monaten nichts von mir hören lassen. Aber wenigstens kann ich behaupten, dass ich in den letzten Monaten fleißig war. Zwei Ufos sind fertig geworden:

Design Wall Monday + Tuesday's To-Do List: Giverney Teleidoscope is Nearly a Flimsy from Cheeky Cognoscenti

As of Sunday night, here's what Anders' high school graduation quilt looks like on my design wall:

All Nine Rows Completed!

All of my 11" kaleidoscope blocks now have their corners attached, and they are all sewn together into nine horizontal rows with their points matching up neatly at the seam lines.  Now all I need to do is to sew those rows together into a finished quilt top (or "flimsy") before I can load it onto my long arm frame for quilting.  My One (Two!) Monthly Goal(s) for April was(were) to finish piecing this kaleidoscope quilt ...

Boro Inspired Stitching from Joy of Quilting

 Hello there my Stitching Friends. Today I want to share with you my latest Boro Inspired piece of work. 

I find this Traditional Japanese style of stitching wonderfully relaxing. It's based on need rather than decoration but still manages to produce a visually strong finished piece of work. 

I'm making my piece of Boro fabric into a Bag. But technically that's the wrong way around! Boro traditionally didn't start It's life as Boro. It slowly became Boro over years of daily use and mending.....

Boro is filled with lots of lovely Hand Stitching called Sashiko ...

Giverny Teleidoscope Quilt Progress + Custom Sewing Cabinet Modifications from Cheeky Cognoscenti

I'm still chugging along with my son's high school graduation quilt, in fits and snatches!  The real challenge is coming up with new pictures for each post about it, because it looks pretty much the same up on the design wall regardless of whether seams have been sewn together yet!  

Giverny Teleidoscope In Progress

You can't see the whole thing in the photo above, but the top six rows have corners attached and blocks sewn together into rows.  I have three more rows to go with attaching corners and joining blocks into rows.  There are no borders ...
