Connecting & Freeing Up from Terificreations's Weblog

Connecting While perusing social media Debby Brown posted this link for ways to connect with one another while we are refraining from in-person contact. I knew about one of the ways for personal contact, the other two were new to me. The Quilt Show is having a membership sale right now. I rejoined last night… Continue reading Connecting & Freeing Up

Pink Skulls Baby Quilt from Jan's Quilts

I have a large and wonderful family, including about 50 cousins.  One of my cousins, actually the daughter of a cousin, contacted me about making a quilt for her daughter who was having a baby girl.  The expectant mother is a mortician and her mother wanted a mostly pink quilt with skulls.  My first thought was sugar skulls, but no, she wanted just regular skulls.

So I found some pink skull fabric and pulled some great low-volume whites from my stash and did a disappearing four-patch design.

The last two photos, showing the front and back, are from the baby ...

Sewing Projects for a Full Heart (and Bobbin)! from The Cutting Table Quilt Blog - A Blog for Quilters by Quilters

When someone is covered in a cozy, warm quilt, they are reminded that someone sat at a sewing machine for hours, carefully piecing and stitching, with them in mind. A handmade table runner sitting on the family dining table shows a loving home to all who feast there. To be gifted a wall hanging is a reminder that they are loved by its maker.

Valentine’s day is one of the best holidays to make for because it’s about love and we LOVE to make! Here are some sweet as pie project ideas:

BABY LOVE from Nestlings By Robin

Out on stands now is the 
January 2020 issue of AQ magazine.

 My new design, BABY LOVE, is 
featured within on page 64.
 I was very thankful to have Ann Hamel's 
(AQ's fantastic editor) advice on 
what is trending with baby colors since I 
am not a grandma and so a bit out of the loop:)
 Once I had my lovely Shadow Play 
fabric from Maywood Studios, I 
went shopping for some basic thread
and found the perfect pink with my
mother's name:)
Then it was time to get to work
paper piecing these simple little blocks ...

Baby Girl Quilt for Olivia from Studio Dragonfly Quilts

This commission quilt was made for a coworker and friend who is expecting her first grandchild. One of the requirements was that it not have too much pink as the mom is not fond of all pink for her baby girl. However, purple was most definitely acceptable and I was fortunate to find this cozy cotton flannel fat quarter bundle by Studio RK for Robert Kaufman. Another request was to personalize the quilt with the baby's full name. I "purpled out" the last name for security reasons. 

Typically, I print a label onto fabric using my inkjet printer but ...

rainbow tiny tuesday from Making A Lather

Every Tuesday at the rainbow scrap challenge, Angela offers us a new tiny Tuesday block.
I need to spend time making those blocks that I missed. Every one I make, I fall in love with when it is done. I don't have a design wall, so I haven't seen them together yet. I am really looking forward seeing the colors play together.

I am linking to:

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 ...
