House Mini Mini Quilt and Card – Made with Crafted Appliqué from France Nadeau

In my search of patterns I can use to test the Crafted Appliqué method, I could not pass by the house pattern I have created to make House Keychains. The house is quite small and was perfect to make a … Continue reading

Holiday Forest for Christmas in July from Quilt Fabrication

Today, it's my turn for the 12 Days of Christmas in July Blog Hop! I do hope you visit the other two bloggers presenting today, Beth at Cooking Up Quilts, and Linda at One Quilting Circle. I'm sure they have some fabulous items to show as well.

My Christmas project is Holiday Forest, a table runner with matching placemats.



Made with a variety of green batiks for trees and a pretty blue snowflake print for the background, this runner and place mat set celebrate the Christmas season in a modern, understated manner.

Constructed with easy to paper piece ...

Balloons from On Point Quilter

"Is it hot enough for you?"  It is interesting how sayings you heard in childhood come back to you.  The next few days are projected to have heat indexes from 105 to 115.  I'm not even sure what the heat index is -- but for this ice skating girl I know it is definitely "hot enough". 
I'm using the heat as an excuse to escape to the ice rink in the middle of the day (and hoping everyone doesn't have the same idea).  At home I'm working on a number of quilting projects, including ...

sewing with handwovens from Ellyn's Place

I've shared before that I am enjoying incorporating my handwoven fabrics into my sewing projects. I really like combining them with purchased quilting cottons. Here's my latest, a Lola Pouch (pattern by Sotak Handmade)
Having found no real tips or examples that suit me online, I've been experimenting and have come up with a method that works for me. I thought I'd share my tips here. Maybe they will help someone else? At the very least, I will have them documented for my future projects.

First off, I learned early on from my awesome weaving friend ...

Antique Car Paper Piecing Quilt Pattern from Wisonsin Quilting

Chets Car color ways 2 Peggy Aare

It’s not a July outing without a few old cars!   Enjoy making this paper piecing project for someone you know.  Jazz up the colors or leave it in original condition; make a wall hanging or add borders and you’ve got a perfect picnic blanket.  Although this is an actual car from the collection of a wonderful community member, Chet Krause, my intent is for it to bring forth those memories we all have of a slightly slower paced time.  (Though you may not know it, Chet Krause started the publishing company that is now part of F&W ...

Workin’ It Wednesday – Border Dilema from Heart Desire Creations

Pinwheel quilt

Leftover blocks from a split pinwheel quilt last year, so I sewed them up for another quilt top. I’m all about the borders lately, and don’t want to just “plain” border it again, which would be the easiest way to do it. I made some smaller pinwheels and am auditioning a couple of possibilities. Oy – what to do. A very thin red border and then the pinwheels on point with white print setting triangles? Or just the pinwheels with the white print and no separating border? WHAT should I do??? I need a quilt fairy on my shoulder ...

Pow Wow baby quilt from Ellyn's Place

This is my first documented finish for the third quarter of the Finish-along. I finished another before this but I can't share it just yet! Anyways, here it is, a baby quilt for the final KNOWN pregnant person in my life. It's a Pow Wow quilt by Cluck Cluck Sew. Baby's room is being decorated in black, white and gold. I used solid black Kona Cotton and white cotton with gold polka dots and triangles from Hobby Lobby. I chose to bind the quilt in black & white stripe which always makes me happy!
I did the quilting ...

Meet Brick Cottage Lane {2} - an eye-catching quilt that's easier than it looks with strip piecing!  The pattern includes instructions for 5 sizes from baby to king, using yardage as well as scraps.  If you prefer traditional piecing rather than strip piecing, you'll find instructions just for you, too!



The quilt above is a king size in Bonnie & Camille lines Vintage Picnic, Miss Kate, and a few Daysail prints with Kona Snow.  The backing and binding are the extra-wide dark navy check from the Vintage Picnic line.

Super Show and Tell from The Inquiring Quilter

In the spring, I hosted a quilt along for my pattern Stepping Stones. I had a lot of participants, some of whom were also members of my local quilt guild. After we finished the quilt along, several guild members had the wonderful idea of having a super show and tell at a guild meeting once the quilts were all finished. Our guild is large, and we have three meetings a month—two during the day and one at night—so the plan is to have a Super Show and Tell at all of them.

I must confess. My last Stepping ...

Garland Pattern Testers from Blossom Heart Quilts

In the middle of getting ready to move states, I quickly asked two Melbourne quilty buddies if they were able to whip up a Garland mini quilt to help pattern test. Jane and Erin did not disappoint! Erin aka @quiltbystarlight used some of her hoarded Tinsel by Cotton + Steel to make a super happy Garland.

Tinsel Garland quiltbystarlight

She finished it off with some intense pebbling – it can get a bit addictive when you’re in pebbling mode! And some gentle weaving through the half-square triangles, like intertwined leaves on a wreath.

Jane aka @behind_lilpipdesigns went for the non-Christmas approach blew my mind ...

Red, White & Green from Quilty Joyjoy

The clock keeps ticking down for the quickly disappearing Christmas in July sewing and quilting pattern bundle.  The links are only live for 72 hours, so Thursday at noon PST, the bundle deal is gone for the year.

I was hemming and hawing a couple weeks ago about not really being ready to accept the prospects of quilting for the holidays.  Mostly my reluctance was because I was still working on some graduation quilts (Yes, I realize graduation season has passed by!)  I might just be the queen bee of procrastinators!

However, after browsing through the PDF files from Christmas ...
