Little pink finish from The Academic Quilter

Hi all, and welcome to what is officially the last weekend of summer. It's true-- Monday is the first day of autumn, so this is the last gasp of summer. Around here it's hanging on quite well, thanks, since it's supposed to be 85 on Monday, but it will still be officially done. Usually I don't mind, but this time I feel like I've missed the whole summer, what with the move and all.  As long as that doesn't mean a longer winter, it should be okay!

Today I want to show off the ...

To See Such Fun ~~ finished! from Fleur de Lis Quilts and Accessories

And another finish! This little quilt is a 62 inch square of pink and yellow scraps to be given away this weekend. 


The pattern is Amanda Jean Nyberg's from her book No Scrap Left Behind. (The link goes directly to the QAL.)  I made another quilt (here) during her June Quilt Along in 2017. 


I made several changes with this quilt. Mostly I turned everything into  4½" blocks and then sewed those into strips. The center sections create large four-patch blocks, the cornerstones are made of broken dishes blocks and finally I made the 4½" strips in ...

pink star from Making A Lather

Great news, my hubby took me to Joann yesterday. I am 5 weeks out from surgery, so I haven't been in some time. I didn't make it all the way through a shopping visit, but I got my feet wet. They had an extra 30% off their fabric clearance, and another 10% if I finish the bolt. I picked 2, and then, hubby told them all of it, and stood in line to pay while I went and sat in the car. It was so fun. And ice cream afterwards, too.
I am still a little behind in ...

Sweet Caroline from The Academic Quilter

Happy Thursday everyone, and hello from somewhere on the road to Baltimore!  There's a good chance that right as you read this I am lifting and carrying boxes or something else that people my age really should be past by now. We'll be settling into our new home in no time, but in the meantime I took some beauty pictures of a pre-blogging quilt for this throwback post.  Please enjoy, and please think good and happy thoughts for us and the move.

Here is my throwback quilt, and I'm not throwing it back:


Gosh, I love this ...

pink letters from Making A Lather

I made pink letters for my quote quilt.



 And while I was sorting through the pink, I found the remnants of another quilt. I wonder what to do with so many extra pieces. Do I use it as a starting point for another pink quilt, or split the pieces up into their parts.? What would you do?


It's also a new month and the new rainbow color is bright/ light blue. And time to make a new goal for August. I know it is best to keep my goals easier this month as I try to find a new ...

A little rainbow sewing from Making A Lather

I have been feeling better every day, still, not very chatty. Yesterday,  I sat and sewed one seam in my sewing room. I have enjoyed looking through the pink scraps. I made a pink crayon, and 4 patches for woven checkerboard.


I had the chance to cut the alphabet letters that I needed in pink for the quote quilt. Once, I feel like really sewing again, it shouldn't take long to make them.

Five little blocks from The Academic Quilter

Hi everyone!  Are you all enjoying the heat dome so far?  Yeah, me neither.  I'm seriously fantasizing about snowstorms right now.  We had a minor bit of panic yesterday when we thought the AC had gone out, but it turned out that the batteries in the thermostat had died.  Whew-- easy fix! It did get up to 87 in the house before we figured it out, though. I've never been so relieved to have dead batteries. 

It's been a busy, hot week, but I managed to make a few of the Tiny Tuesday blocks:


Doesn't that ...

wiggle finish from Making A Lather

I have a finish for the rainbow scrap challenge this week. I found the pattern in a magazine, and it was called rainbow baby, but, I recognized the name of the designer of one of my favorite bloggers, Cynthia Brunz. She has the pattern called wiggle time, and can be found here at quilting is more fun than housework. I really like it in rainbow colors. This was my first machine only binding. I could use more practice, but it will be fine for a baby. This is my 9th finish for the year.


I started it here and here ...

The Organized Quilter from Repro Quilt Lover

Let me begin by saying this is an aspirational post. I am not an organized quilter or an organized anything, really. But, I need an organized system to accomplish what makes me happy; maybe you can relate.

I am going to assume if you are reading this blog you like to quilt. And, therefore, are probably a creative person — a “creative type.” Generally, we creative types are free spirits, which doesn’t translate well into focus, planning and organization. But, if I give in to the free spirit and let it run my days, those days are ruled by a ...

A Touch of Teal ~~ Finished! from Fleur de Lis Quilts and Accessories

I've had this little pink top sitting in the quilt queue for a while now. It had everything needed for a finish: backing, batting, binding. 

"How easy and quick would this be?," I wondered. "Quite easy and especially quick," I answered. 

So I loaded it and thought about quilt motifs. I wanted, as Richard loves to say, "Quick, fast and in a hurry." 

While quilt my last quilt, I stumbled upon a motif I like that is fast and pretty. It has the look and feel of a pantograph, except that it changes at random rather than repeat in ...

No Such Thing As Too Much Pink from Quilting & Learning

Did you know that there is "no such thing as too much pink"?  That's the name of this quilt, and here's the story...

This was many, many years ago and was one of the first quilts I made.

I had gone through the fabric that I had inherited from my mother. There was quite a lot of pink fabric, so I went shopping for more fabric to make the quilt. This was the first time that I realised how many different shades, tints and tones of pink there were. Since my mother's fabric was a few years ...

Pink Hearts! from Magpie Quilts

Hearts like these have been popping up all over the place and I'm sure you can find tutorials and instructions for something similar if you look.
Magpie Quilts
I started with a bunch of pink 2.5" squares that I had already cut - they are the basis for the single Irish chain baby quilts I frequently make.

Sew 3 pink and 1 white/background 2.5" square together to make a 4-patch block as shown below. These little 4-patches should measure 4.5" unfinished. Don't worry if yours aren't exact, you'll just have to make some adjustments as ...

Update – Honey Bee Variation Quilt – 1948 from Lotus Cove Quilting

 

You might remember this quilt, that I posted in 2014. It was made in 1948 by my great grandmother, Rose Brown Tague. The traditional honey bee block, in pink and purple, alternates with snowball blocks with green corners. The original post can be accessed under “Family Antiques” in the right-hand column.

I recently found an old photo, taken of my grandmother, Mary Josephine Hamrick Tague, holding nine-day-old me, her first grandchild. Covering her chair is this new quilt, positively dating it to 1948. That’s my father’s writing; he probably took the photo.

A Lovely Gift from TheEclecticAbuela

An anonymous lady, on a Facebook group to which I belong, worked through the administrator of the site to do a Santa Angel giveaway leading up to Christmas. She said she had fabric and other things that she wanted to share. My name was one of those drawn, and I received the package today.

Pretty Pinks!

 A big Thank You to the Santa Angel. Happy Holidays!

Beary Colourful BOM: Healthy Choices Red-Violet Bear from Clever Chameleon

Red-Violet Bear of Healthy Choices appliqué by Clever Chameleon

Today we truly have a Berry Colourful Bear to add to our Beary Colourful family. Please welcome the Red-Violet Bear of Healthy Choices!

Red-Violet Bear is so bursting full of health and vitality you could probably catch a wellness from this guy! He chooses good healthy food full of vitamins and antioxidants. He chooses clean air, drinks lots of water, exercises regularly. And he knows that treats are only “sometimes foods”. If there is a healthy choice to be made, Red-Violet Ted is all over it like a rash. He is of course too perfect to be true, and can ...

Stars on Strings--An Original Design from TheEclecticAbuela

This quilt began on graph paper. I have an EQ program, but I was defeated by triangles!

Stars on Strings--66" x 88"





I tried this more than once. My first experiment was to use regular, brightly-colored strings.


As you can see, the red stars are lost amidst the chaos!



I went to neutral strings which worked better to show off the stars.

Please forgive the camera strap in the corner!

 I stayed with this idea, though, for me, it was hard--I always want MORE COLOR!



The making wasn't too hard, though 60 degree triangles can be tricky to assemble ...
