Cover quilt at Love Patchwork and Quilting from Diary of a Quilter

This summer I had a SUPER fun invitation: to create a quilt for one of my favorite magazines, Love Patchwork & Quilting. And then, I ended up on the cover of the most recent issue (Issue 12)! (AAaaahhHH!) This is my first time ever as a cover girl and I must say, it is pretty fun! I'm not a super-squealy/giggly person, but I have to admit, I do get a little squealy and giggly every time I

fold over sewing pouches from comfortstitching

016 (2)

Today I'm going to show you what I've been working away on recently.  I say recently but in truth this project started over a year ago.  I wanted to sew up a handy pouch where everything could be kept together but was compact enough to carry around too.  After a few attempts I came up with the idea of the fold over sewing pouch -  a pouch + pincushion + needle book + scissor pocket all in one.  It's the perfect thing for sewing on the go, English paper piecing, embroidery or just a handy kit all together when ever those ...

How to Rock a Teenager’s Quilt! from 3 am Inspiration

When we think teens, we think lots of noise and chaos. Here’s a great quilt for that favorite teenager! I’ve also made it for a little kids room because I think all kids come with noise attached! This quilt is called Visual Sound and gives the look of noise without adding to the commotion. looks great on a bed, as a lap quilt or use as a noise reduction piece on that teenager’s wall!

It’s Bargello!! But no looping/seam ripping nonsense attached! To ease you into this type of bargello, I played with precut 2-1 ...

The 28 strips quilt, a free pattern from Mrs Moen

This is a fun and easy pattern whether you already have a stash of strips, a jelly roll, or choose to cut new strips from any collection of fabrics. Mine is made from strips from my Treasure Box and measures 36”*36”. You can easily adjust the size to your needs.

(It is a beautiful sunny day today with a little wind which made my quilt dance. The light was a bit difficult; too bright in the sun, and a bit too dark in the shadow, but there you go. We'd better enjoy outdoor photo shoots while we still ...

Washi dress from Ellyn's Place

I have exciting news to share! After many years of teaching young ladies to sew here in my home, I am able to officially add the title of Teacher to my resume! I have been asked to teach some classes at Stitched with Love, one of our fabulous local quilt stores. I will be teaching garment sewing classes, beginning with an intro to garment sewing class (tomorrow!) and then moving on to some patterns I selected.

After making my first Washi dress in the spring I knew I wanted to make more, and I knew it would be a great ...

See You in September Blog Hop from Quilted Delights

My summer was mostly spent making memories with the family and playing in the lakes and waterfalls of South Carolina. We took several weekend trips and had one full week of camping fun.


As far as making things at the sewing machine, I spent a lot of time finishing up some UFO's, which I have been blogging about throughout the summer. I am always trying to whittle down my UFO pile but I always like to start new projects - probably why the UFO pile never gets smaller. Luckily this hop gave me incentive to start and FINISH three new ...

X Marks The Spot {a finished quilt and pattern!} from Material Girl Quilts

Let me introduce you to my latest quilt, X Marks the Spot.

X Marks the Spot

I cannot believe that it was almost 2 years ago when I first shared this quilt top with you!  Why did I let it take so long to finish it up?  At least this time it wasn’t folded up in a storage bin, but instead it has been hanging (all fancy like with painter’s tape) in my sewing room :)

X marks the spot quilting

I quilted it using Aurifil 50 wt. 4241 (black) and just echoed some of the lines of the star.  I loved the striking design made with ...

Fast Piecing Technique with some Faux Trapunto thrown in! from 3 am Inspiration

This project is a fun class, covering quick piecing and faux trapunto. I’ve demonstrated the piecing here on the video–showing you how to piece the border blocks, while constructing the main blocks. It’s a quick way to make this quilt and it fits right into the beginner quilters toolbox. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=j5qS3OaVDfM&feature=youtu.be

 

The faux trapunto featured in the center panel version–fabric by Katia Hoffman for EBI Fabrics–is an easy technique with tons of different applications. Let’s think about that. Accent a quilted feather in a border, draw ...

On a Roll from Inside Quilters Newsletter

When I started making the Metropolitan Tree Skirt for the Best Christmas Quilts 2014 issue (check it out at the Quilt & Sew Shop if you haven’t seen it), I began thinking about how versatile and fun working with 60-degree triangles could be. I spent a little too much time arranging and rearranging the patches of the tree skirt on my design wall, because there’s so many cool ways to rotate and combine the different patches to get wildly different looks. So as a way to explore this idea, I decided to cut some smaller triangles after the tree ...
