Dragonfly Playground from Quilting and More...

The latest quilt is now finished! I had such a good time quilting this one, especially since I wasn’t constantly fighting the weight as I moved it around under my Bernina, thanks to my new suspension system. The background fabric is a white-on-white fabric with happily flitting dragonflies, which is where I got the name […]

HST Zanthia Pillow from Art Gallery Fabrics-The Creative Blog

Zanthia copy

Welcome back, fabric friends! 

Today we are featuring one of my favorite and easiest way to create a patchwork pillow, I like to call this one "Zanthia" and if you know about basic half-square triangles, then you'll especially love making this pillow. Once you create the HSTs, all it takes is some cutting and rearranging to complete this look! 

Have fun with your fabric choices too, as for this tutorial I kept it simple by using AGF Pure Solids, but play around with some movement by including some prints. 

Let's get started!

Miles and miles … from Quilting and More...

Now that I’ve finished the quilting on my elephants, I’m making the piping that I’ll add before the binding. Miles of piping. But I do love the extra detail of the piping on my quilts, so I’m glad to make it. My Bernina is practically an expert by now!

Glamorous Clams — finally! from Quilting and More...

This was such a fun project to do, but there were times that I thought I might never get to the end of it. LOL! I loved selecting and using the built-in embroidery stitches on my Bernina 790+, but I have to admit that quilting them — all in the ditch — quickly became very […]

Kokeshi cushion from Granny Maud's Girl

I have finished another UFO! This one dates from 2018.

My April goal was to turn this kokeshi panel into a cushion. I made it originally as a humidicrib cover with fabric remnants I had bought in Japan, but when the hospital advised that they did not want any more humidicrib covers, I changed the plan into a cushion.

'Kokeshi Doll' pattern by Blossom Heart Quilts

I was so happy when I found the Japanese scrap packs.

I hand quilted it during April and early May, wearing a hole in my thumbnail in the process. Despite the wear and tear on my hands, you cannot easily see ...

'Tis the Season from From the Strawberry Patch...

With the month of May come big changes, seasonal ones! Yep, the strawberries are ripe at our local U-pick farm, each and every berry is absolutely as delicious as it looks. The porch quilt has been updated to reflect this full-fledged launch into spring and sunny days ahead. Much more time has been spent lately out-of-doors than inside. It feels so good to get out and to get dirt under my

More blue from Granny Maud's Girl

I started this cushion last March. It happened because I was neatly folding my Liberty stash. We could say that Marie Kondo prompted this cushion. I was admiring the pretty blue fabrics as I folded them and was inspired to start cutting out hexagons. A cushion would not take long, I thought.

Blue Liberty hexagon cushion

I used all of my blue and bluish Liberty prints in this cushion.

Machine piecing the 2-inch hexagons was easy and did, indeed, not take long, but finding the time to hand quilt the cushion front was another matter. I had a plan and had chosen the quilting ...

A series of classes from Quilting and More...

It’s been a very long time since I was fortunate enough to be able to take a class from a lady who is probably my all-time favorite instructor, Philippa Naylor. Some years ago, I had classes from her in Houston on varied topics like free-motion quilting, piecing, and binding. Lately, though, her classes haven’t been […]

Swirly Whirly from Quilting and More...

And … it’s done! I had originally envisioned doing swirling feathers in all of the colored areas, but that was an impossible task. The bulk created by all of those tiny seams just meant that my free motion foot kept getting hung up; it’s rather difficult to do smooth curves and even stitches when the […]
