Small element, big difference from Canuck Quilter

Isn't it funny how a small thing can make a huge difference? I've had a love-hate relationship with this little quilt.

I loved my fabric choices and loved making the blocks.  I hated the way the fabrics played together IN the blocks. (Blocks are from "Chic Sisters" by Sew Kind of Wonderful.)

The pinwheels didn't pop as much as I had hoped. The white and grey prints seemed to disappear where they met the light aqua and yellow.  These blocks were supposed to be joined to make a table runner for a shop sample, but I thought ...

Custom Quilting – Metro Scope Quilt from sewbittersweetdesigns

Back in June I was getting antsy about my husband leaving with the army again so I decided I needed a project to work on that didn’t require any brain power on my part – interpret that as I didn’t want to have to do any quilty math – which designing my own patterns require. Sometimes it is nice to have all the math and figuring out done for you. This quilt was one that I started working on with my wonderful friends, Vicki of Orchid Owl Quilts and Shanna of Fiber of All Sorts, being two of my closest ...

Tool Tip: Ruler Storage from Becca's Crazy Projects

I am a ruler addict. This means that I will buy specialty rulers just because it does something new. This doesn't mean that I don't already have a ruler that does the trick, just that it is another new ruler.

This means I have many rulers. I've been storing my rulers on the lower shelf of my cutting table. It wasn't elegant and it didn't make it easy to find the ruler I was looking for.
I thought a file folder holder might be the right way to go. I picked up this simple one ...

Book Review - Contemporary Curved Quilts from Daphne Greig

If you've been following my project posts for a while you will notice that I have been working with the Quick Curve Ruler®since last October. This is the invention of sisters Jenny Pedigo and Helen Robinson of Sew Kind of Wonderful

Today I'd like to tell you about their first book, Contemporary Curved Quilts. The book includes a well illustrated 'Techniques' section at the beginning of the book. The step by step instructions show you how to cut the curves with the ruler and your rotary cutter. Then they show you how to machine piece the curves ...

A Mini Quilt For Me from sewbittersweetdesigns

I decided last September that I needed a new mini for my studio and who better to make that mini than me? After all, I know what I like, I know what I don’t like and I consider myself a fairly good quilter. So my mini was born. I took a Sew Kind of Wonderful pattern and slightly adapted the blocks to make them squares and a mini was born.

Then life happened, as it always does in this camo colored world that my family lives in.  The mini sat for 3.5 months before I was able to ...

WIP - Elegant Curves from Sew Sunshine

I was faced with a challenge last week that I had no spare time for. Even though I would not get it done for the deadline of the challenge I wanted to complete this table runner anyway. I will be showing a demo on the Quick Curve ruler next week and wanted one simple piece from the book One Wonderful Curve by sewkindofwonderful.   I changed up the layout and block number to accommodate my

Friday Finish - Quick Curve Mini from Sew Sunshine

and this is from my UFO pile too! So happy to finish.  I love this block with the curve edges. The block finishes at approx. 16" square.  I needed a small piece to use my leather roller foot to quilt it. I could have done more but I just wanted to play for a few minutes today.  Used up some more of my scrap fabric on the back. I doubt I will ever tire of green and black and grey fabric

Ein Block für die Modern Cologne Bee from Quilt Collection M.

Verflixt - welchen Block soll ich nur nehmen?

Im Februar ist es soweit: Ich bin die Bee-Königin in der Modern Cologne Bee und bis dahin ist nur noch eine Woche. Entschlossen für einen Block habe ich mich noch nicht, aber ausprobiert habe ich dafür einiges: Angekündigt habe ich ein Muster mit Rundungen, das ist auch für meine Mit-Bees okay, aber welchen Block denn nun? Mit ganz billigem Stoff habe ich geschnitten und getestet.

In February I am the bee queen in the Modern Cologne Bee which means I have only one more week to decide on the block I want to ...

Upcoming Workshop - Quick Curve Ruler from Daphne Greig

Last October when I was at International Quilt Market in Houston I visited the Sew Kind of Wonderful booth and was BLOWN AWAY by their wonderful quilts. All these quilts use the Quick Curve Ruler.

So I stopped to see a quick demo and I was HOOKED on how EASY it is to use this tool to make perfect curves. I bought the ruler and started playing with designs late last year.

Now you can learn how to use this ruler too.  I am teaching a few workshops in the local area beginning next month.

First class is at Cloth ...

Modern Millie Quilt from The Quilting Queen Blog

One of my first things on my itinerary in San Antonio was to take the Modern Millie Quilt Class using the Quick Curve Ruler.  One of my friends was teaching it at another friends studio.

I posted my color choices on Instagram if you follow me there, but if you don't, here they are.

I'm all set to sew some blocks.

Guess we need to cut the components first.

 Whoo Hoo, one flower petal sewn.

140 flower petals complete....

Four flower petals make one flower block.

I only complete 4 blocks in class

But 2 days later, 35 ...
