French seam pillowcase tutorial – 12 Makes of Christmas from Quilt Addicts Anonymous

Our 10th Make of Christmas is is the perfect addition to any quilt you are making as a holiday gift! A custom pillowcase made to match your quilted gift, or just in the recipient’s favorite colors, is a fabulous, fast fun gift.

Don’t let the words “French seam” scare you away. They are actually pretty easy, look very professional, and allow you to create a finished edge without a serger. Plus, you only need a yard of fabric to make this gift, so it is also very affordable.

This tutorial is an oldie but a goodie. It was ...

Why do I work best under pressure? from Crazy Quilter on a Bike!


I don't get it - I have deadlines. I'm very aware of the deadlines. My brain just doesn't seem to work unless the clock is ticking!

I'm working on a project - one that I can't share with you at the moment. I had a date in mind when it needed to be done. That was yesterday. Oh yes - along with everything else that had to be done. I had done a bit of preliminary work on the project, but I was overwhelmed. It's not quite my normal kind of thing to do - yep - my own ...

Who knew my sewing machine could do that? from Crazy Quilter on a Bike!


A super productive day yesterday. Oh boy - I feel like I'm in auto mode - just keep sewing!

DH was prepping for a quick trip and comes to me with his duffle bag that has a seam that has ripped open. Can I fix it? Normally, I would take forever to do something like that, however, I also had something similar that needed fixing so I grabbed both items and headed to the sewing machine.

The materials were quite stiff, but I set the Sewing Advisor on the Husqvarna Viking Ruby Royale to HEAVY and away I went. I didn ...

New Pillowcases from Alamosa Quilter

I decided not to go to Fall Quilt Market this year. Moving the shop really took it out of me! Instead of traveling to Market I took a few days off last week/weekend to get some things done at home (pattern writing, business planning and a little "me" sewing time).

I took the opportunity to make myself some new pillowcases.


These fabrics are new in my shop and I couldn't resist buying some for myself. They look great on my bed!

Used books any one??? from Crazy Quilter on a Bike!


I was driving around yesterday and going over all the things that I do - blogging, educating, teaching, etc. And there's one thing that I've decided I won't do anymore - workshops for quilt guilds. It was never big on my list of things to do. I never promoted it. But sometimes when I speak at a guild, I've been asked if I do workshops. I've done some in the past. But at this moment in time, I'm working with two guilds to try and get a workshop going. It's a lot of work to ...

No rest for those who can't schedule properly! from Crazy Quilter on a Bike!

It was up early yesterday, had breakfast with my brother and SIL and then I hit the road. I needed to get to the airport to see if I could get on an earlier flight. It would appear that there is no such thing as standby anymore (on Air Canada), at least in the smaller airports. For a fee (of course), you can make a "same-day" change and you'll get a guaranteed seat (if available).

The flight actually left the airport 10 minutes early and we were off. Of course, we lost those 10 minutes when we arrived in ...

Got Librarians? A Pillow for Book Lovers from Gefilte Quilt

Just finished: A birthday throw pillow for my cousins, rabbi Nina, and her husband Tom, a retired librarian: 
The lovable library fabric was designed by Heather Givans of Windham Fabrics, for her "Jot" collection. Closer:
I found it a couple of months ago, during my visit to an a terrific New York City fabric district quilt shop, Gotham Quilts
Gotham doesn't stock vast amounts of fabric, but the selection is choice and the prices are among the most reasonable for quilting cottons in New York's fabric district. (Most of the stores I visited there - much larger and messier ...

Thoughtful Tuesday - A God Morning. To Do Tuesday. from Faith, Trust and Breast Cancer


Thoughtful Tuesday
Today, instead of sharing a post that has blessed me, I need to share an event that happened in my home.  

God gave me the great honor of encouraging a young man to breathe new life into his marriage!  

After a bungled appointment with our regular appliance repair man, he and I were able to adjust our schedules so he could come over this morning.  

After initial conversation, I asked him if he was married and he said yes.  Then, this question popped out of my mouth, "Are you happy?"  

Though I can be outspoken, believe me, this ...

How to Make a Pillowcase – Sewing with Kids – featuring the Future Quilter and Ponies from Quilt Addicts Anonymous

I am constantly making things with my daughter. It is a combination of her seeing me constantly being creative and wanting to be like mom, and my belief that creativity helps kids thrive by teaching them new ways to think and solve problems.

So we are going to be doing a new occasional series at Quilt Addicts Anonymous about sewing and crafting with kids. My daughter just turned four, so we are going to be doing age-appropriate crafts and I’ll talk about how you can adapt them for different aged kids, either giving them more or less responsibility depending ...

Thoughtful Tuesdays To Do Tuesday. from Faith, Trust and Breast Cancer

Thoughtful Tuesdays
Hi there!  You know, I started collecting blog posts that inspired me some time ago and it is my joy to share them with you on Tuesday!  Again, this Tuesday I turn to a post by Laura Rath at Journey in Faith14 Verses When It Feels Like God is Silent.  She is transparent about her own walk with God - especially when she does not feel Him.  The verses she presents are "oldies but goodies" to me - tried and true. 

Many years ago I was a youth sponser.  One of my precious girls shared a thought that has ...

Little Pillowcases from Needle and Foot

About a month ago, my daughter in law texted me to ask if I would make some small pillowcases for my grand baby.  She has recently taken to sleeping with a tiny pillow (which is so darn cute!) So a few cute pillowcases were needed.  Of course I am happy to make whatever I can.  I am unsure why I didn’t get these done sooner because they are so simple.

Serenghetti Beasties

I made two – each one quite different from the other.  The first one is made with some fabric by Clothworks. It is an organic cotton and the ...

One more treasure to share from Crazy Quilter on a Bike!

Of course, you realize when I say SHARE, I mean share visually with you. Of course, I'm not sharing this project with you! 

I seem to be a magnet for UFOs. And I don't mind. It does depend on the UFO of course and while I was prepping for that presentation on log cabin quilts, I came across another treasure that I had forgotten about. This one was donated to me by someone in one of my guilds. I don't think I purchased it. So yes (and NO JUDGING HERE), if you have a cool project that ...

A couple of finishes from Jan's Quilts


I started this quilt top last Saturday and finished it on Friday.  I used 6 charm packs of Cookies & Cream by Wilmington Prints and lots of scraps!


One of my guild members called this an Improv Butterfly Quilt; I guess I'll go with that name!  I really love how it turned out.



A couple of close-ups of the Butterflies. 

I also did a quick project, birthday gifts for my granddaughter Erin and her new husband Jaimie.  Jaimie is a firefighter and Erin is studying to be a nurse.  These are quick, but I took longer than the 15 minutes ...

Travel Pillow Case from From My Carolina Home

One thing that I do not like about traveling is hotel pillows.  For some reason most hotels have gone to all down pillows, which to me are very uncomfortable.  They go flat in a hurry, and I need the support for my neck to last all night.  So, I started asking for acrylic or polyester pillows when I check in, but even this is a problem as many hotels no longer even have those for the asking.  A couple of years ago, I began taking my own pillow with me on driving trips after I was forced to go to ...

My First Burrito Style Pillowcase from Goer

I've made a few pillowcases in my time and I've always used a serger. Our BAMQG gift exchange was yesterday and we were asked to bring our gift in a pillowcase for donation to the Happiness is a Warm Quilt drive for the fire victims in Santa Rosa and Napa Counties. Everyone was talking about the burrito method for making a pillowcase (with french seams), so I decided to try it out. I used Jaye's blog post to guide me, but others used this YouTube video. I omitted the accent fabric and chose two prints from my ...

Pillowcases Done from Rose Prairie Quilts and Farm

It was a perfect day for sewing, temps were cold



fire was burning, making the house toasty.

And me in my comfy clothes....

So this morning while having my coffee and watching Morning Joe, I quilted a little more on Scandinavian Christmas




I am such a slow quilter, thank goodness my livelihood doesn't depend on it.


I think I might take Chookyblue's advice, go ahead and hang it up even if it's incomplete.



After a few chores and as little as possible cleaning I went on to finish the Rudolph and Santa pillow cases.



 Next step is ...

BRRRR!!!!!!! Day 5 from Rose Prairie Quilts and Farm





Boy what the difference a day makes.  I don't think the temperature got above 45, that is 30 degrees cooler than yesterday.
Brrrrr!!!


Spent the day at Mom and Dads, and while there I started working on these.




Little hats.

These are the ones I made today while at Moms ...

The Annual Project from caledonia quilter

I dragged it out as long as I could, but really, pillowcases only take so long to make.


I was trying to avoid my annual day of torture.  The one row of Double Wedding Ring that happens every year up here.  Diane remarked I'd better sew a little faster so we can see a completed top in this lifetime.  I suggested she delay any planned illnesses.
