Polka Dot Fun from Heart Desire Creations

When I was getting ready for my April Quilt & Sew-In, I prepped an easy and quick quilt using the many polka dot fabrics I have.  I paired them with some striped fabric and cut all into 2 1/2 inch strips.  I got the inspiration for this quilt which she called the Ernie Quilt. For me, it’s best to have something fairly mindless, quick and gratifying for when I am facilitating a retreat. This worked!

Here is the quilt top on the design wall at the retreat:

What's Under Foot? from From the Strawberry Patch...

What's under foot at your house?  There's something colorful, soft and scrappy at mine! I have always wanted to make a Jelly Roll rug. I have all the components, I just haven't actually gotten around to making one yet. Something about cutting ten miles of batting into 2.5" strips has been enough of a deterrent toward progress on that front that it has stopped me in my tracks. Then, someone

Diamond / The Birthstone Series from Quiltmanufaktur

Vor geraumer Zeit kam mir die Idee, dass es möglich sein müsste, die Fassetten von Brillanten als Foundation Paper Piecing auf Stoff zu bringen... Dass jemand so ein Idee schon hatte und dass es daher sogar schon Pattern gibt, wusste ich nicht.

Umso mehr habe ich mich gefreut, als ich bei meiner Suche auf MJ Kinman gestoßen bin. Sie hat sich genau diesem Thema angenommen und wenn man auf ihrer Website surft, dann funkelt und glitzert es wie verrückt! Man kann sagen, dass sie das Darstellen von Fassetten für Schmucksteine zu ihrer Passion gemacht hat.
Wie gut, dass sie uns ...
