A Flurry Of Stash Activity from Quilt Paint Create

This week makes up for all the weeks when nothing came in or out.
I used 5.25 yards for the donation top shown in my last post.
Thursday a local quilt shop had a tent sale. The sale fabrics didn’t appeal, lots of florals and dark colors. They had books, patterns, DVDs and scraps on a table for $3 a pound. I picked up two patterns and a book and my friend added five more patterns to fill our pound. I bought one yard of fabric inside the shop to use with the deer pattern.

I can't believe this...and I can't remember if it's ever happened before...AND it may never happen again, but this is my 2nd post in one week!

So, without further ado...

Pouch with a View from Ellyn's Place

My good friend Mahriam over at Three Owls Handmade  has done it again! Her newly released Pouch with a View pattern is available on Payhip and also on Etsy and it's a winner people! You're going to want to get your hands on this one.

She told me this all started when she realized she was carrying her hexie projects around in a ziploc bag! For real? This is the girl who designs gorgeous bags and pouches in her sleep. A ziploc bag? So she created three sizes of the see through pouch to match the sizes of ...

QN’s August/September 2015 issue

Today’s the day the August/September 2015 issue of Quilters Newsletter hits quilt shops, newsstands and book stores. The cover quilt is Crown Jewels by Mary Kay Price, a beautiful, tapestry-like quilt that features trapunto and fused Swarovski crystal embellishment. Inside the issue, Price describes her design process and how she adapted Royal Cross block templates to make her original design. “It just seems British to me,” she said of how the quilt got its name. Be sure to check out the issue to see more close-up shots and learn more about how ...

schoolhouse tunic - with pockets! from Ellyn's Place

Recently I got it in my head that the Schoolhouse Tunic should have pockets! I mean, really, everything should have pockets, don't you think? While teaching a Washi Dress class at Stitched with Love I thought, hmmm, I wonder if those Washi pockets would work on a Schoolhouse Tunic? Bought me some Parson Gray fabric and brought it home to try it out.
I cut out my tunic as directed on the pattern and cut the separate pocket pieces using my Washi pattern. Then I stitched the pocket pieces to the sides of the skirt front and back pieces ...

Heading South quilt inspiration from Material Girl Quilts

Happy Monday all!  I hope you are enjoying your summer.  We have been dealing with TONS of rain in our neck of the woods, so I was very thankful to have a few days of sunshine (even if it was super steamy) this past weekend.

As you (hopefully) know, I have recently launched my pattern shop and one of the most popular patterns is Heading South.

Today I wanted to share some of your gorgeous versions.  So, get ready to be inspired!

It's a well known fact that I have a serious condition - Fabricitus, my sister tried to tell me once that this wasn't an actual disease and that I might be a little bit deluded, I nearly fell right off my unicorn!!

Celestial Orbs pattern is available! from Flying Parrot Quilts

I’m pleased to announce that the pattern for Celestial Orbs is up on Craftsy (for US customers) and PatternSpot (for international customers)!

Celestial Orbs Quilt Pattern

My lovely pattern testers improved this pattern greatly; you can see one version, by Tracy, here and here! Hers is Fourth of July themed, and it’s lovely to see it in different colors.

I think this pattern suits itself well to a variety of fabrics. I mocked up a couple of more traditional versions. Here is the mini quilt, also included in the pattern, in traditional florals:

Stow It! Stow It in Style! from Erica's Craft & Sewing Center

Small zippered pouches are SO popular! They are fast and fun to make (even with a zipper – more about that later). Make them for yourself, choosing your favorite colors and fabrics, or make a batch of them for gifts. I’m a fan of Atkinson Designs, and love their new pattern “Stowaways” (A29869). Besides offering six sizes in one pattern, Terry Atkinson always makes it easy to put in a a zipper. Really! I had hesitated doing anything with a zipper, until I discovered her wonderful methods. I chose two zippers for my first projects.  Then I chose three fat ...

Picket Fence {A Finish + A Pattern!} from Busy Hands Quilts

I am super excited to introduce Picket Fence to you!  She is the second in my budding line of quilt patterns!  Picket Fence is a versatile pattern that looks great in many fabric collections!  Sweet pastels or bold, masculine prints are perfect for Picket Fence.  The cover quilt is lap size in PB&J by Basic Grey.

I made this sweet version of Picket Fence in Spring back in 2012, making it up as I sewed.  This quilt is the reason I named the pattern Picket Fence; it reminded me of a white picket fence on a lovely spring day ...

Happy 4th Lady Liberty Tutorial from On Point Quilter

I hope you have fun things planned for this holiday (if you are in the US).  To celebrate, I thought I would re-post my video on creating a Lady Liberty quilt using Electric Quilt.  I will also be giving the next set of instructions for the Kite quilt.

And as you can see they loved them!! Look at those smiles and those chubby cheeks, just to beautiful but then I am a very biased Aunty. Something else I am very biased about is how breathing taking The North is, if you have never ventured up there I can't tell you enough how much you should, just don't tell my Granny she won't be pleased if I start sending hoards up there ...

I Started Selling Embroidery Patterns from Eric the Quilter

Etsy Shop(1)


I wanted to for a long time, and now I’m finally getting all of my digitizing done! I know it took a while, because I started talking about it months ago. Since my injury, I haven’t been able to sew much, but I started to use all of the other sewing stuff I have. I started to pound out embroideries, and then I also started to use my digitizing software. In fact, all through the summer, take 20% off my embroidery patterns with promo code: 20Emb. Click on the picture or here to visit the shop!

Kites Galore from On Point Quilter

For those that are on the east coast, a number of my quilts are on display at The Quilt Patch in Fairfax Virginia.  Check out my quilts and patterns in person at the shop.
