TIME FLIES from That's Sew Kerry

12 Months On

I can't believe it's been over a year since I last wrote a blog post! I was walking around Festival of Quilts a little over a week ago thinking it's been a good few months since I've blogged and I quite miss it, only to log on and realize it's actually been more than a year  - how time flies!

So much has happened since my last post it'll take all day to catch you up but in brief we got the dream house and said room is filled to bursting with ...

New things are cooking from The Crafty Quilter

Hey all! The last day of July is here and the second half of 2019 is underway. I thought I’d get you caught up with some new things that are cooking in my house. And I’m talking about in the sewing room, in the kitchen and in the family!

I have multiple projects going on in my sewing room, and it’s always the newest and shiniest that gets most of my attention. I just finished a new quilt block and I’m super excited about it. Now I need to decide if I want to make it ...

Sewing ✖ Orange Peel from Charm About You


This is the stack of quilts I took to Leicestershire and Rutland Guild, where I was invited to give a talk and teach a workshop. It's always exciting and slightly nerve wracking for me to visit somewhere new. All the ladies that weekend were so welcoming and it was great to arrive on their Area Day at the end of last month. It began with everyone working on their own projects and there was a wonderful show and tell. I really enjoy seeing peoples creations and hearing stories of how it was made. Sadly I didn't take pictures ...

Adding Borders and Quilt Blocks to a Collage Quilt from Patchwork Posse

For the past little bit I’ve been working on the Horse Quilt for Eliza.

I had picked up the pattern at a local quilt show and knew it would be perfect for her.

She loves horses, but I didn’t really want something that was all the traditional horse room.  Right now her room is a grouping of cute eclectic things and they all work together.

There was one wall though that needed something.  A quilt was the answer– (of course) and a horse quilt fit right in.

The center features a large horse that is layered applique fabrics ...

Double Four-Patch from Humble Quilts

The double 4 patch went together pretty quickly, but deciding on a border did not!


Medium blue, dark blue....


Red....pink...
Okay, neither!I liked pink but couldn't make it work.

So I went with cheddar and brown! Weird combination, but one that said quirky and humble. I have one other quilt with a border like this and it was an accident, this one was on purpose. 
As I mentioned before a double 4 patch is an old pattern but this setting is from Red Crinoline, called Wilderness Road. It was a fun one to swap with friends and ...

This, That and The Other from Humble Quilts

Here is my double four patch  laid out as I pieced the blocks together.  Up close it looked like a jumble....


We were thinking the lights should have been more light all the way through. 
Trying to get some good lighting. 

 I plan on adding a border. I like it because it was a friendship swap, not because I love the layout.
Thanks Kevin and Kathy!!

My first project was Almost Amish, our fall quiltalong. I'll baste it and quilt it over the next few months. This came straight from my solid bin. I recommend use what you have ...

A Tardy Tutorial from Telling Stories Through the Needle's Eye

Better late than never is not our normal life mantra, but sometimes that's just the way life is—especially when it comes to blog posts! Thankfully, there are no blog police out there and we can just roll with what the week brings and deliver a blog post a day (or two) later than we normally do.

We are working feverishly on quite a few projects for next year and as we do, we try to be diligent about taking pictures for our handouts. When we teach a class, we feel it is important to give our students all ...

Hello my friends,

Do you love to show off complex looking projects that are truly easy to make? If so, me too! For the romantic and delicate Everlasting collection, we will be making an 18" pillow top combining the improvisational and the strip piecing techniques.

My First Time on the Sewing Machine from Art Gallery Fabrics-The Creative Blog

Hello makers,

The last few days, I’ve decided to tackle something I never thought I would try (at least by myself)... sewing on the sewing machine. As a kid, my grandma loved to sew but she never used a sewing machine, everything she ever did was by hand, and she passed those skills down to me. Growing up, she would have me sit next to her on her bed, set down a pile of socks, shirts, pants, anything with holes, and have me sew up the holes to practice. I really enjoyed that time with my grandma, it was ...

4 Patches from Humble Quilts

Who doesn't love a simple 4 patch? And a double 4 patch is double the fun!
I'm swapping with my friends Kat and Kevin next month when I go to Ohio. (I won't be seeing Kevin in Ohio, but he is still swapping with us)  I better get busy if I want to get all 200 of them made before then! These will finish at 4" and this will not be the setting . 

I generally don't piece lots of blocks at one time except in these circumstances. 

Oops.... 

 This is what goes on at home most ...

I’m feeling very still⁣

Block 7 is quite possibly one of my favourite non-star blocks… It’s a bit fun! A spaceship taking off into the sky, zooming through the stars and planetary bodies. Like block 6.

Block 6! Let’s not forget block 6, it’s a moon… or a planet… or where ever it is that the spaceship is headed. And that pink Alison Glass print with the symbols? Definitely a ...

Life Happens from Quilting Solutions

Lots of unexpected things in my life lately, but not much sewing.

1.  I fell and broke my toe.  All healed now.

2.  I came down with shingles, but due to a vaccination several years ago it was mild.  The worst of it was the dragging lethargy and general malaise after the rash healed.  Too wussy to sew.

3.  My first great-grandchild was born four weeks early during the big Seattle snowstorm.  He was 6 lb 8 oz so all is good.  Can't wait to snuggle him.

His dad is responsible for the embedded caption!
4.  Though not unexpected ...
