Diamond Superstar Pattern: Available Now! from Better Off Thread

Diamond Superstar Block

I’m pleased to announce that the Diamond Superstar Block Pattern is finished, tested and now on Craftsy!

The pattern includes instructions, coloring sheet and templates to make both a 14″ and an 18″ (finished) block.  The block went together surprisingly quickly and easily for both me and for my wonderful testers, but I would suggest having some paper-piecing experience before trying this one.

My testers were so amazing, and they found all my little errors for me.  It’s always exciting to see what fabrics people will choose.

So I Made A Purse... from A Quilted Passion

I was admiring a fellow quilter's purse at Kids Camp a few weeks ago.  Of course she'd made it herself. (Am I the only quilter who doesn't carry a self-made purse?) Anyway, I became obsessed...like I often do, and kept touching it and saying how awesome it was...even after she'd offered to send me the pattern! I'm a bit much some times.  

Anyway, this is her awesome purse! It's a pattern she or a friend had previously purchased which she made modifications to.
I decided the first one I made would be ...

Dottie Angel Frock from Ellyn's Place

Always one to jump on a good bandwagon, when I saw a copy of the Dottie Angel Frock pattern (Simplicity 1080) just laying around at our local Walmart I decided to give it a go. 
I had been eyeing up all of the cute frocks on Instagram (they look especially adorable on petite little frames, skinny girls looking like they are heading out to tend the chickens & collect the eggs. For the record, I have neither a skinny frame nor a flock of chickens, but I digress.)

I have a couple yards of Liberty floral I've been hoarding that ...

Friendship Ahead from Rana Quilts

Student work, 'Picture This!'
Summer flew by in a flurry of visitors and travel. We got the dining room/studio window replaced and repainted the room, finally! Although the design wall went up last weekend, my sewing machine is waiting for clear space on the table. I plan to kick start sewing again with a long Labor Day weekend retreat in Friendship, Maine. 4 days and 7 projects--maybe more!

I've also scheduled fall classes at Sew Portland. 'Picture This!' an all techniques class, spans two full Saturdays. Starting with a photo (or two) I describe how to turn photos ...

pillowcase dresses for Africa from Ellyn's Place

I'm so delighted that my oldest, Leigh Anne, will be traveling to Swaziland, Africa, in October. She'll be going on a mission trip with Liberty Church NYC and since one piece of their mission is to visit orphanages, I decided to make some pillowcase dresses to send along with her. Yesterday I recruited two of my favorite young sewers to help me out....
 They worked very hard most of the day, excited to sew for such a special mission and asking lots of questions about the orphans in Africa along the way. Many of the questions I didn ...

Rosewood Lane {A New Pattern!!} from Busy Hands Quilts

Introducing Rosewood Lane, a quick and easy quilt that is truly a weekend project for twin and smaller quilts.  I love that it looks scrappy yet is made from one block which makes for quick chain piecing.

Rosewood Lane includes instructions for six sizes from wall to king.  Fabric requirements are given in fat quarters, and the pattern also includes a chart detailing how many pieces of each size to cut if you're sewing a scrappy version. Mock-ups are given of all six sizes to give you an idea of what the quilt will look like in various collections ...

Diamond Superstar from Better Off Thread

11866249_10153721210005934_6278638643527862463_n

Last week, I finished the 18″ version of my newest paper-pieced block.  I also chose a name:

Diamond Superstar!

I’ve been busy perfecting the templates for both the 14″ and 18″ block and I’m hoping to release both in PDF pattern form very soon.

My daughter immediately claimed the block as her own (as she does with all of my sewing) and asked for a pillow.  I have to say, I’m pretty jealous, but it looks better in her room!

Let's Stay Cool! from Quilt Doodle Doodles...

Hexie Tiles – Foundation Paper Piecing Pattern from 627 Handworks

I’ve been seeing a ton of Art Deco style tiles showing up in my Instagram feed lately and decided to make a paper piecing in one of the designs.

hexiesrotating

 

The above is what I consider an advanced layout – you will need to know how to sew Y seams to assemble.

hexiesstraight

The organized rows are what I consider a basic layout and you can assemble these without Y seams!

It’s really fun to play around with the placement:

Just changing up the background could make a huge difference too!

Baby Lacuna Sampler Quilt from Gen X Quilters

Back in June, I mentioned that I was working on this "baby" version of the Lacuna Sampler.  I used leftovers I had from making the original sample, and hurrah!  I finished before the baby arrived.  That rarely happens.  And double Hurrah that I finished early, considering it feels like I've had almost zero time to sew this summer with the kiddos around.
This quilt contains only the four center blocks of Lacuna, plus I added those little extra HSTs in the middle to give the center some action.  I love the straight up patchwork.  It really showcases the prints ...
