Blöcke, Blöcke und noch mehr Blöcke from Quilt Collection M.



 Manchmal gibt es Zeiten, da arbeite ich ganz zielstrebig an Projekten, und dann gibt es Zeiten, da arbeite ich mal hier und mal da. Im Augenblick ist die "mal hier und mal da"- Zeit.
Für den SWAP°PEN auf Deutsch Tausch muss ich ein (… -geheim) nähen. Natürlich überlege ich permanent hin und her und ...

Curve it up from Quilt Collection M.

Jenny von Sew Kind of Wonderful veranstaltet einen neuen Quilt Along, bei dem ich eigentlich nicht mitmache, aber jetzt doch etwas genäht habe: Wieder einmal geht es um das Speziallineal Quick Curve Ruler. Und weil Dagmar und ich uns getroffen hatten, um etwas zusammen zu testen, haben wir kurz entschlossen einen Kreis damit zugeschnitten und genäht. In Gesellschaft ist es ja immer gleich 10 mal so schön und es geht viel schneller.

Hier sind meine Kreise. Den dunklen Kreis hatte ich schon vorgetestet und den hellen dann mitgemacht.

Blocks are complete! from sewbittersweetdesigns

So I just couldn’t help myself and I went ahead and finished all of the blocks yesterday! I think I am going to go ahead with a navy border. I just need to buy more fabric, how sad!

Found you! http://blog.sewbittersweetdesigns.com“Found You!” she yelled.

And because Anne loves to take pictures with my camera, her is her picture of my blocks.

Curve It Up Challenge Update from sewbittersweetdesigns

I have been trucking along with the Curve It Up Challenge, pattern by Sew Kind of Wonderful.  I have all but two blocks done!

Love how this is coming together! #ciuchallenge #janome #quickcurveruler

Excuse the cell phone picture, but as I write this post it is late at night and the lighting now sucks too much for a real picture.

I am just so happy with how the blocks are turning out. My Fancy Fans and my Drunkards Path blocks are a tad different from the original designs, and I am really happy with how they turned out. I could seriously see a whole quilt made from the fans ...

Sewing Therapy Tuesday from sewbittersweetdesigns

This weekend and yesterday I took some time for sewing therapy. It is cheaper than the traditional kind of therapy and I can do it in the comfort of my jammies! I worked on blocks 2 and 3 from the Curve It Up Challenge.  I have to say I am really enjoying the mental break from designing, though quite soon here I will likely need to take a break from this and start the dreaded Elsa Dress.

Blocks 1 2 3 - CIU Challenge - http://blog.sewbittersweetdesigns.comI was originally going to do all American Made Brand solids, but I didn’t have enough and I wanted more variety in ...

Snow Already? from Calgary Quilting Momma

Welcome to Calgary! It started snowing around Noon today! We had 26 degrees Celsius yesterday! That means 78.8 Fahrenheit to you others! From shorts yesterday to long pants and warm coat today!

What a wonderful suprise when I got the email on Saturday night that my Babylock was ready! I picked it up today from the store! I haven't taken it for a test ride as of yet! Even BETTER news...I didn't have to deal with Cranky One! I have checked to see if there are other stores that carry Babylock and my choice in Calgary ...

Curve It Up Challenge from sewbittersweetdesigns

I have decided that I need a bit of a mental break. I still want to sew, I just don’t want to have to fuss with math and design and all the jazz that comes with designing patterns. So for the next little bit here I am going to work on the Curve It Up Challenge that Sew Kind of Wonderful is hosting right now.

I picked out some American Made Brand solids that I bought from my LQS this summer and whipped up the first block today.  It is a curved version of a Churn Dash block. It ...

Beginn eines Quilts - First Layout from Quilt Collection M.

Da lagen sie, die tollen neuen roten Figures-Stoffe; und riefen "Mach einen Quilt aus mir", aber so genau wusste ich nicht, was ich machen sollte und ich hatte Angst, die schönen Stoffe zu verhunzen. Also habe ich gezögert und gezaudert bis ich letzte Woche ein Muster (Metro Twist of Sew Kind of Wonderful) gesehen habe, das ich mit dem Quick Curve Ruler nähen kann. Ich liebe diese Rundungen und ich bin mir sicher, das ist genau das richtige Muster für die Stoffe. Also habe ich geschnitten und genäht und wieder geschnitten und hier ist mein erstes Layout:

Here they were ...

Curve it Up Blocks using Quick Curve Ruler from Rose Room Quilts


 I picked up this 1/2 yard bundle of Art Gallery fabrics at Sample Spree during Spring Quilt Market.  This is 9 (1/2 yards) of Modernology by Pat Bravo.  It's very fun and happy colors.





I had received the Quick Curve Ruler© from my husband for Christmas, but put it away thinking the patterns looked a little difficult.  While at Spring Quilt Market I got to meet the ladies of Sew Kind of Wonderful and watch the quick demo they were doing.  It looked easy.  So I picked up the "Curve It Up" pattern and decided to try ...

Beating the Monday blues... from Fabric of My Life


Hey there everyone,

how was your weekend?
Hope you got some creative fun tucked in it? :)

I did a bit. It was a rainy one in Buffalo, NY and very often for me, summer rain = sewing time! There is something so appealing to me to sew while its raining outside and windows are open...maybe even a thunder or two... :) Am I just a bit nuts or do you have similar preferences?
Well, Sunday started with a great intention to take both dogs (our big boy Marley and grand puppy Oliver) for a nice morning walk along Ellicott Creek and ...

Ole Ole from Pinkadot Quilts


Saturday I took a class and made this small quilt. While I love the fabrics, my choices do not have enough contrast, something I always struggle with and always AFTER the quilt is done.....


This was the teacher's sample, she used batiks with a white on white print that had lots of contrast!


The pattern is made using the Quick Curve Ruler by Sew Kind of Wonderful.



I had success making the solid curves (the red ones on the right) but was having trouble with the pieced ones, they just didn't fit. So I decided to take the ...

Have you tried Quick Curve Ruler? from Fabric of My Life

Hi everyone and happy Monday!

Spring is finally here in Buffalo, NY - the birdsong every morning just makes me smile!
Weekend was busy but really wonderful.
Some quilty fun, (meeting of the WNY MQG, read all about it HERE) some garden work, great walks with our furry kids and crowned with lovely Sunday dinner with our kids - can one ask for anything more? :)
Our grand-puppy Oliver was visiting Saturday - just love this cutie...

He was so excited to walk with his big buddy Marley, sometimes he almost walked sideways! :)
Neighborhood watch...like a big boy:

Hubby was just so happy ...

Soft Waves Quilt Finish from Melanie Ham Designs

Hey there!

So today, I wanted to share with you a quilt finish from the end of last year.  Let me just start off by saying how much I love this quilt!  I made this quilt with my students from quilting class back in Honolulu using the quick curve ruler.  I used the Riley Blake ombre fabric and Moda white to complete this quilt.  Then, to top it off and make it extra special, I sent it to a friend to have her machine quilt it on her long arm machine. First time I have ever done that!  I am ...

Joining In the "Mod Olives" Quilt-A-Long from Color Me Quilty

Jenny at Sew Kind of Wonderful is having a Quilt-A-Long (QAL), using her Quick Curve Ruler. I joined one of her QAL a couple of years ago and made my Urban Nine Patch baby quilt that I just love. So, I think it's time to join in again.

Sew Kind of Wonderful
Last night I went into my stash to look for fabric combinations. What do you think of this?























I've ordered some Kona "Coal" for the background, this was the darkest grey I had in my stash. I think "Coal" will be darker but a bit warmer ...

Christmas Runner - Fun Poinsettia from Want It, Need It, Quilt It!


It was time to make a Christmas runner and the perfect pattern appeared on Jenny Pedigo's blog called 'Fun Poinsettias'. I love Jenny's curved patterns all done with the wonderful Quick Curve ruler. The pattern is free, easy to follow and quick to make. 

There is a Flickr site - The Fun Poinsettia Pool - where you can upload your finished projects. I can already see a few popping up on IG and FB in festive fabrics.


As it is a gift and I am not sure of the recipients decor, I used the beautiful neutrals found in Robert Kaufman ...
