Last week I had just a really fun time quilting! Most of the quilts I quilt are fun, but this one was just a joy! I had this Metro Rings Quilt on hand for several weeks before I started on it because I had signed up to take a quilting class from Helen Robinson and Jenny Pedigo of Sew Kind of Wonderful at the Home Machine Quilting Show in Salt Lake City. It was a good move to wait, on my partread more

Mein Bruder bekam zu seinem Geburtstag einen Quilt-Gutschein von mir. Er hat sich ein bereits begonnenes Projekt ausgesucht. In der Hoffnung, dass es schneller fertig wird. Hier ist der Quilt - nur um mal ein Bild in seine bayerische Heimat zu zeigen ;)))
My brother got a gift voucher for a quilt from me for his birthday. He already chose a half done project - hoping that this would speed up the finishing process.

I love it when I finish a substantial-sized quilt. For me, that’s anything bigger than a lap quilt. I just finished putting the binding on my “Classic Meets Modern” quilt which was a block of the month from last year hosted by Sew at Home Mummy. Erin guided us each month with a traditional quilt block that she gave a modern twist to.
I used fabric from my stash in a rainbow theme. The final quilt setting was up to us. I chose a traditional 3 x 4 setting with plain sashing. I decided to make the borders with ...
Two words about this photo shoot...Windy and Weeds! Dry sticks actually. I clomped through some pretty sketch areas but really it was an excuse to enjoy the superb weather that day. I was not going to try to shoot this quilt out of doors but 58 degrees called to me. :) So my January A Lovely Year of Finishes = The Bead quilt. I think I am going to call it paper beads. It reminds me of theread more
Last night at a guild meeting I gave a demo on using the Quick Curve Ruler by Jenny and Helen @ SewKindofWonderul. I don't have many rulers but I purchased this one to do a sewalong that Jenny was doing on her blog. I quickly fell in love with the easy piecing. I was sewing curves and they were turning out every time. No I am no affiliated with them at all but the ruler really makes curveread more
Es gibt neue Kissen für mich und meine Familie - ganz viele Kissen (na ja, immerhin vier):
Das erste Kissen wurde mit dem Quick Curve Ruler und vielen hell gemusterten Stoffen gearbeitet.
I made four new pillows for myself and my family:
The first pillow was made with the quick curve ruler and many low volume fabrics.

Dass ich Low Volumes liebe, das ist sicher kein Geheimnis. Sie kommen im Augenblick sogar vor den sonst so heißgeliebten Unis. Alle beigen, grauen, weißen und ein wenig grünen Stoffe habe ich auf einen großen Stapel sortiert und dann habe ich immer weiter Petals mit dem Quick Curve Ruler von Sew Kind Of Wonderful geschnitten. Das Musterheft Curve it up hat es mir wirklich angetan. Zwei Muster sind meine klaren Favoriten:
I really love low volumes. That is no secret. Right now they even beat my love of solids. I took all the neutrals, greys, whites and greenish fabrics, stapeled ...
A Friday Finish!! This is my little wall hanging made from the free pattern over at SewKindofWonderful HERE using the Quick Curve Ruler. I wanted to make a scrappy (from my stash and scraps) wall-hanging using the ruler. This was super fun AND......drum roll please! I tried two new techniques for me on this. First, because I spiral quilted it, it was pretty wavy. I was able toread more

Last week I showed you the quilting on my curvy quilt I named Merry. As I've said before, I no longer pre-wash my quilting cottons. I do pre-wash flannel, but that is to ensure the top and batting do as much or more shrinking than the flannel that I'm using as a backing. I usually wash quilts after they are finished to make sure anything that has been picked up by the fabrics during the construction and quilting processes is removed before gifting. I occasionally use spray starch. Sometimes sewing machine oil gets onto the quilt from the ...read more
