Quilt As You Go with June TailorHave you heard about June... from Living Water Quilter



Quilt As You Go with June Tailor

Have you heard about June Tailor’s Quilt As You Go batting projects? June Tailor gave me a few of the batting projects for some playtime in my studio. So, I decided to have some quilting fun and use fabrics from a new Island Batik Fall collection.

It is a great way to use your fabric scraps and precuts. I used fabric scraps from the Dear William collection to make the mug mat. As an Island Batik Ambassador, I am given fabric by Island Batik.

Sunday Stash August 12, 2018 from Quilt Paint Create

No change to any of the numbers this week.
After a very hectic and stressful week, I just felt like I needed to sew yesterday. I didn’t want to spend time choosing a pattern or cutting a lot of fabric. I just wanted to sew.
I settled on this scrap bag bought at the thrift and started a quilt as you go fall table runner.
thrift-shop-fabric-011615I wanted it reversible and chose this fabric for the back. This fabric is old enough to vote.

Quilt-As-You-Go Double-Sided Placemat Tutorial with FREE pattern! from Quilt Addicts Anonymous

I just love Quilt-As-You-Go Placemats. I have so many that I have created using my favorite 2 1/2-inch strip rolls. I just love how each one turns out a little different, but they all are clearly part of one set showing off the fabrics from your favorite line. And the best part, because this is Quilt-As-You-Go, when you are done sewing, you are also done quilting and you just have to bind your placemat!

But when I saw Tula Pink’s De La Luna I knew I had to also make these placemats double sided and use all three ...

Two Tutorials in One Day? from The Free Motion Quilting Project

Yeah, I'm feeling like a bit of an overachiever today! I've shared two new quilting tutorials for you:

How to Quilt Crazy Grid

How to Quilt-As-You-Go with Supersized Blocks

Restequilt - two at a time from I like to Quiltblog

 Es ist wieder Restefest bei Marion und jetzt will ich endlich mit
diesem doppeltseitigem Quilt mitmachen.
Genäht habe ich ihn schon im Februar/März.
 Das Buch "Reversible Quilts" von Sharon Pederson
 stand ganz lange aufmeinem Wunschzettel und irgendwann hatte 
ich tatsächlich Glück es recht günstig zu bekommen.
Darin wird sehr klar gezeigt wie man die Blöcke anfertigt und anschließend 
mit quilt as you go zusammenfügt.
Also erstmal vorbereiten, dabei konnte ich auch meine Vliesreste verwenden,
und ich konnte endlich einen alten Fehlkauf,
dieses Fat Quarter Bündle, das sich komisch glatt an fühlt gebrauchen. 
 Die großen Dreiecke habe ich mit Spraykleber ...

Monday Musings from Pamela Quilts

I have been working on my tendency toward procrastination and thinking about what makes me resist doing certain things that I know need to be done.  I wrote about some of those things on Saturday, and the feedback I got really made me think about diving into those type of thoughts a little more deeply.  I know for me, that when something seems really difficult I am apt to put it off - and most of the time the task is quite achievable, even if it might be challenging.  I found this quote (by unknown) and thought it was perfect!

qayg drawstring bag from Sotak Handmade


Yesterday afternoon, completely out of the blue, I decided to dump the contents of my two full to the brim scrap bins and start making quilt as you go blocks. I love this technique as I greatly enjoy turning scraps into lovely new projects, and I also find all that repetitive stitching super relaxing.


This was my first block and I was super pumped and started thinking that maybe I should make enough blocks to make a quilt. Yes, definitely an overly ambitious thinking, especially since my quilting mojo is nowhere to be found these days :(

So, not surprisingly, after ...
