My Favorite Color is Moda Sew Along - Block 15 from twiddletails

This block looks very scary but really isn't. It's all HSTs and, because it's 27" x 27", it fills up a lot of space.

Disclaimer: Sometimes I will change the pattern instructions a little bit because a different way works better for me. This does not mean that the pattern won't work exactly as written. If you follow the pattern, your blocks will still turn out fine.

Tips/Instructions:

I don't have many tips for this block.

Be sure to double check your fabric combinations because there are 4 different HST combos.

I always lay ...

Announcing the Stitch Pink Sew Along from Fat Quarter Shop's Jolly Jabber

This October, wear your heart on your sleeve during this endearing quilt along. We’re spreading breast cancer awareness with Moda Fabrics for Breast Cancer Awareness Month! In this year when many of us put off regular checkups (and mammograms), it’s especially important to remind ourselves and our friends to get screened. According to the American Cancer Society, when breast cancer is detected early and is in the localized stage, the 5-year relative survival rate is 99%.

The Stitch Pink 2021 Sew Along is in support of Moda’s virtual awareness-raising event starting on October 15. This year’s ...

Upcoming Quilt-Alongs from A Little Bit Biased

Good morning friends!  
I put a poll on Instagram recently to have you guys help me decide 
what pattern I should do for my next quilt-along.  The choices were Golden, Fall Flowers
and Autumn Glow.  Golden got an overwhelming majority vote so that's what we're going to do 
(I'm sorry to those of you who voted for Fall Flowers!)  However, for those of you 
that voted for Autumn Glow, it's your lucky day!  I have fabric 
to make another Autumn Glow quilt so I thought, why not just do TWO quilt-alongs!?!

We'll be starting Autumn ...

My Favorite Color is Moda Sew Along - Blocks 12, 13, & 14 from twiddletails

We are making 9 blocks this month but don't panic.  They are very simple blocks.



Disclaimer: Sometimes I will change the pattern instructions a little bit because a different way works better for me. This does not mean that the pattern won't work exactly as written. If you follow the pattern, your blocks will still turn out fine.

Tips/Instructions:

Block 12: Press the Fabric 8/10 HSTs' seams toward Fabric 10 and the Fabric 9/10 HSTs' seams away from Fabric 10. This will allow all the seams to nest nicely when you assemble the block.

Have you joined the Sampler Spree Quilt-Along? It is sponsored by Moda and is based on Susan Ache’s book, Sampler Spree. Each week a specific color is announced along with 10-12 blocks to piece using that color. It was so helpful to have my scraps sorted by color.

A quick month.

This month's blocks are really easy and I don't have too many tips that I haven't mentioned before.

I'm planning a post on how to decide which direction to press seams, so stay tuned.

Modern HST from Espritpatch

 Finally, a finish, just before the end of the month! I am so happy that this UFO is no more. It is now a finished quilt that I will be able to gift to a good friend before I leave. I just finished sewing the binding tonight, didn't have that much left to do really.

And here it is, all done, finished, completed, ready to be gifted. Not sure why I took 5 years to get to this point but I am glad it is no longer a pile of blocks in a box.

FLOURISH: New QAL from Nestlings By Robin

and we still have many that are 
working on it because it really
isn't a quick project:)

intimidated or not up to the 
task of WLL would be able to
join the quilt along fun and 
sharpen their skills for when
they are ready to tackle WLL. 

Twice a month starting July 1st,
I will present a tutorial via a

for the next step in the quilt along.

Busting the UFOs! from Espritpatch

I am still into the big tidy up/clean up/declutter activities here, partly why I am sewing so little. Part of the exercise has been to go through "parked" projects and decide whether I really wanted to keep them/I had hope to finish them one day or if I had completely fallen out of love or they would require so much more that I know deep down that I will never complete them.

One of the projects that came out of its box was my "Impromptu" quilt, which has been on my finish-along wish list for a long ...
