Quilt as you Go with Video Tutorial from Patchwork Posse

The quilt as you go technique is seriously one of my all time favorite techniques!

It makes sewing simple projects really go together quickly.

By the time you are all done, the project is ready to be bound or finished into your project.

Here’s the video to show the process:

Materials needed for this technique:

* fabric scraps

* fusible fleece

* fabric for your back

Kaleidoscope - Losing Control? from Elaine Adair Pieces

Whew - this is a HUGE project for a DSM, MQ'ed, in free form designs.  I am putting on the last 2 borders using Quilt as you Go, technique (thank you Georgia Bonesteel), to reduce the bulk  - this  quilt is abut 88" x 107".

As I was working, I had the feeling it was "getting away from me".  I don't know what that means, perhaps self doubt?  The border quilting keeps it all straight and true, flat, but I think the center quilting might need more.  Kinda late now for more quilting in the blocks, but I've been ...

handbags and gladrags ✂ appliqué projects ✂ from Charm About You


Late last year I designed and made some projects that I can finally share because they are in this month's Love Patchwork & Quilting: Issue 46!


I made four appliqué projects, all with cuteness and handbags in mind! I always like to have little pouches to keep the contents of my bag organised, and this one is perfect for lip glosses and balms (hence the longer and shorter pockets) or pens, washi and sticky notes. The heart kam snap on the lips is a kitschy touch that works either way. 


The cord keeper is great for stopping earphones, USB cords ...

Soy Amado Quilts - the finished quilt from Wendy's Quilts and More

Back in January I showed you the Quilt As You Go (QAYG) blocks I'd made to send to Alison in Guernsey.  As soon as she got them she dropped everything and combined them with Carla's blocks to make a great quilt!


This quilt will now be sent to an orphange in South Africa and a little child will receive their very own quilt for their bed.  You can see photos of some of the children with their quilts on Alison's blog, Little Island Quilting.


Carla of Granny Maud's Girl made the yachts and planes blocks which ...

Progress is happening... from Quilting Lots Moore Designs

At last, I have finished my 40 blocks for Bradley's quilt.  Had them all laid out on the lounge floor last night and forgot to take a photo.  But here they are all stacked up in their rows waiting for me to sew them together.  Really pleased to be at this stage.

They are extremely colourful, and I do hope he likes them.  Hopefully the next photo you see will be the completed quilt.  I am definitely over it, lol.
For a wee break, this afternoon I got back to this wall hanging which is no. 3 on my ...

Scrap Fabric Mug Rug Tutorial from Patchwork Posse

Scrap fabric mug rugs - this is so smart. I have a ton of scrap fabric that need to be used. Love the idea of using one color per mug rug.

Scrap Fabric Mug Rugs

This past month I participated in a mug rug exchange at a local quilt group I attend.  After digging around for a little bit, I realized that I had more than enough fabric in the scrap bin to make something with.

That’s the beauty of the mug rug.  They are small and simple and don’t need a super ton of fabric.

Plus, they are done in no time flat!

Today I thought I’d share how quickly this can be made using your fabric scraps and if you have a bit hanging around– they ...
