Breaking through Negativity from Crafty Sewing and Quilting

This week's Project Quilting Challenge was "Hope". 
I titled mine "Breaking Through Negativity"




I always create a personal challenge for myself for the Project Quilting Challenges. For this one, it was to do hand sewing on at least part of my quilt.

I reinforced the fabric for the raw edge applique with light heat and bond.

I cut my bird first. . .









and hand stitched it onto one of the four fabric background pieces.



Next I hand stitched the stones into place on the background pieces.



Next I reinforced the background fabric with lite heat and bond to iron/press ...

Project QUILTING 10.1: Hope Springs Eternal from Goer

Last Sunday was the beginning of season 10 of Project QUILTING, a series of one-week quilt challenges. I've participated for the past two years and this year I'm a sponsor. The theme for this week's challenge is Hope Springs Eternal. Well... I was out of town for the first 4 days of the one week challenge, and then I had to spend Thursday and Friday making serious progress on a quilt deadline that I'll be posting on my blog tonight. This means I didn't even have time to think too much about this challenge until ...

Project Quilting 10.1 - Hope Springs Eternal from Quilted Delights

It is that time of year again!  Project Quilting time! Where anyone who wants to join in the fun is challenged to make a quilt in a week based on that week's theme.  Check out all the details at  Kim Lapecek's website.


The first theme for season ten is "Hope Springs Eternal".  I will admit my first thought was Star Wars related.  I kept thinking of the line, "Rebellions are built on hope," from the movie Rogue One, but no ideas came on how to make that into a quilt.


My next thought was about how living water ...

Project Quilting 10:1 - Hope Springs Eternal from Pamela Quilts

(For this challenge I used fabrics provided by Island Batik, a GO! Cutter provided by AccuQuilt and batting provided by Hobbs batting)

I loved the theme of the challenge given for the start of this season of Project Quilting - Hope Springs Eternal.  I am very much a positive thinker, and I knew it was going to be enjoyable to think about this concept and come up with a quilt idea to make.  In fact, I found so many wonderful quotations about hope that I think I could make a whole series of quilts!  I chose this particular quotation, because I ...

Threads of Hope from Cat Patches

It's finished! With time to spare, my quilt for Challenge #1 of Project Quilting's 10th season is finished. The challenge theme was "Hope Springs Eternal," and here is my finished quilt. I had to work fast since inspiration only struck less than 48 hours ago. It finished up at 16 x 21 inches.



This morning I'll be linking up this little finish at:


But before I tell you about the finishing process, let's just back up to yesterday morning. Sue and I had a breezy but dry walk at the bottom of our hill. We were ...

Social Butterflies - Project Quilting from For Quilts Sake

"Social Butterflies," 14" x 12", made by Pam Geisel for Project Quilting, Season 10, Challenge 1: Hope Springs Eternal, Jan. 2019 in Yellow Springs, Ohio

Challenge recap for "Hope Springs Eternal":

Your project should be about hope. It doesn’t have to be obvious, but you do have to be able to explain how it relates to the theme.

Funny note, my project for the first challenge of season 8 was titled "Hope."

For my challenge I decided to use the image of butterflies and how the caterpillar goes into the cocoon and emerges as a butterfly. Does the caterpillar ...

Project Quilting Inspiration from Mulberry Patch Quilts

It’s that time of year again! The holidays are over, and it’s time for Kim Lapacek of Persimon Dreams to begin the first week of the Project Quilting Season 10 challenge.

When I saw the first challenge phrase, “Hope Springs Eternal“, I instantly thought of a photo my son & daughter-in-law sent us of our sweet little granddaughter looking up in awe as she “helped” decorate their Christmas tree.

Isn’t she a sweetie? She’s just between 1-1/2 & 2…So this is the first time she’s really enjoying the tree. And that look on her face ...

There were 667 quilts were made in Season 9 and 52 people participated in all six challenges. I was one of the 52 who did all six.

I like Project Quilting because it challenges me to ...

3D Rainbow Flying Geese - Project Quilting from For Quilts Sake

Two quilted postcards, curved and straight, 6" x 4" each, made by Pam Geisel for Project Quilting, Season 9, Challenge 6: SCRAPtastic, Mar. 2018 in Yellow Springs, Ohio

Challenge recap for "SCRAPtastic":

Your project must use a MINIMUM of twelve (12) fabrics, no matter how small the piece. You, of course, are welcome to use more than 12 if you wish.

So many ideas, so little time. For this project I got into my Project Quilting "Focus Through the Prism" Cherrywood fabrics, although that group only had seven fabrics so I added a light purple, a medium purple, a ...

Scrapbuster of a Scrap Quilt from Mulberry Patch Quilts

It’s the last challenge of the year (“Scraptastic”) for season 9 of Project Quilting, and if you’ve been following along you know I’ve entered every challenge this year so far. However, for this one I’m really in a time crunch. I think my real challenge will be to finish it in time! The entire quilted item must be started and completely finished (yup, quilted & bound) within one short week.

I’ve got bins and bins full of leftover fabric from years of sewing. Some are so old, I think they might be considered “vintage “…maybe you ...

Snowmen, and Sunshine! from Pamela Quilts

This week we celebrated the first day of Spring (also my hubbies birthday) but it sure doesn't feel like spring.  It's so cold and rainy, and I swear I saw some snowflakes earlier this evening as well!  So, what have I been working on this week?  I've been working on this snowman quilt (a custom order).

It's almost a finish, just need to complete the binding and sew some buttons on by hand.  It will go out in the mail on Monday.

I've also been working on some scrap projects.

I was trying to use ...

When the challenge,

or
any challenges to push myself to be better. 

So I decided to dedicate this challenge to ...

A Time Keeper for Me! from Crafty Sewing and Quilting

....And a bonus phone purse! I will share how I made the phone purse in a couple days. It's fun and easy!

Through Project Quilting I won a Quilter's Planner and a Mini Planner!  Thanks so much Stephanie from Quilter's Planner!

I received it in February, so I got a late start, but it didn't matter, as I was able to start right in and get super organized!  I used to have a pile of notes on my desk and when I needed something I would dig through the papers to find something. As of ...
