The Charming 4-Patch - On Overdrive! from Quilt Fabrication

The Charming 4-Patch - Fast, Fun, and Fabulous tutorial and it's companion Youtube video are rocking the quilting world - ready to take it to the next level to make multiple 4-patches?


4.5 inch 4-patch units from charm squares


I promised this is for the over-achievers out there - those that really want to go full throttle with this technique - but anyone can do this!


Sew charms together


Just as in the Charming 4-patch tutorial, sew those charms into a strip. Sew as many into a strip as you're comfortable with, but sew an even number of charms. Another hint to make this all happen!

Pumpkin Palooza - Decorate for Fall with Two Quick Projects from One Quilt Pattern with HeatnBond EZ Print Lite from Creatin' in the Sticks

Don't you love the new colors of fall?  Fall decorating doesn't have to be only orange, brown, and yellow in color anymore.  With pumpkins showing up in all different colors, it's fun to add aquas, greys, and whites to compliment and add a modern flair to traditional fall decor. 



 Today, I'm over on the Thermoweb blog to share a pumpkin applique quilt block pattern using HeatNBond EZ Print Lite and 2 quick projects using the quilt block and the new fabric collection from Windham Fabrics, Meriwether.

1930s Baby Quilt from Romany Quilting

I’m so pleased to report another finish this week – the top for a cot quilt made from 1930s fabrics.  It all started out like this, a pile of blocks I had made some time ago, then put aside for a while.  As reported earlier, I received a gift of assorted 1930s fabrics when we caught up with my pen-friend Margaret in Birmingham, England, way back in 2008.  On our return home I purchased a few more fabrics and made these Cobblestone blocks.

The Christmas Carol Row Along - Quilt Reveal Day - Santa Land and Giveaway from Creatin' in the Sticks

Sadly, the Christmas Carol Row-Along is coming to a close.



Today is 
QUILT SHOW  DAY
where we show off the projects we made with all these fun rows.
There were over 40 rows!

This was the row I introduced in the beginning of the Row Along
which became a 9" x 30" table runner.


Next I used my row to make three 9 1/2" x 9 1/2" blocks by using background fabric and placing the applique pieces accordingly.

For the appliques, I used my favorite fabric iron on adhesive,

Something I Prepared Earlier from Romany Quilting

I rather like Mondays.  It’s the start of a new week, and if we are not off and about somewhere in our caravan, it’s also “Roll the Dice” day.  Which I have done this morning, and the dice rolled to number three.  That's exciting, it is a new project on my list, a 1930s baby quilt which I started goodness knows how long ago.  And this is what I had prepared earlier.

I received a gift of assorted 1930s fabrics from my pen-friend Margaret in Birmingham, England, when we visited while travelling around UK on holiday for ...

Going with Plan B from Romany Quilting

It was a good start earlier in the week when I completed stitching the final two Soul Searching blocks.  These stitched up nicely in dark purple and aqua.

P1070117
Last two Soul Searching blocks

Then I laid my twelve big blocks on the bed, arranging them this way and that,  and stitched them all together.  Hurray – a finish, or so I thought.  I mentioned previously that I had decided to stitch twelve blocks instead of the nine in the pattern.  Why?  Because I thought I knew better.  But three blocks across by four blocks down didn’t really work and was ...

Finally – Roll the Dice Time from Romany Quilting

How long has it been since I rolled the dice on a Monday morning?  Much too long - what with going away and one thing or another.  What number will my dice bring up, I wonder?  There are some new projects on my list, together with a couple of others I’ve been working on for a while.  Guess I’m having sewing machine withdrawal symptoms as I’m quite keen to get sewing again.  And the number is……number four, my Soul Searching blocks.

I couldn’t quite remember where I was up to on this project and had mistakenly ...

How to Paint Barn Quilt Blocks from Patchwork Posse

During the summer a friend and I had volunteered to be in charge of our quilt group meeting.

We decided to do— quilt block painting.

During the spring we had gotten together and painted large quilt blocks on 3 X 3 squares.  They are big and wonderful, but knew that they were too large for the group to make.

After looking around for a bit we decided to go with a chunky piece of wood.  2″ chunky.  That would keep the wood from warping for the most part and if they wanted to stand it up they could- on a ...

54 blocks ~ Farmer's Wife 1930's Sampler Quilt from Charm About You


It has been a little while since I laid out my Farmer's Wife 1930's Sampler Quilt blocks. Admittedly I haven't made many more, it's one of those projects I'm doing in between other things. But this is a fun way to see how it is growing. 


This isn't the final layout, though they will be set on point. I'm pleased with it so far. It definitely needs more Liberty fabric and I think I might take that Daffodil block out, or add in more splashes of green? What do you think?

Some Quilting Bee Blocks from Blossom Heart Quilts

I’ve been a busy bee over the past couple of months still, with both my Miss B Haven bee and my guild’s Liberty bee. Both bees are very different, so that means it’s been staying interesting and fun each month when it’s time to make the blocks! I last shared blocks in June, which means that it’s time to share July’s blocks.

For the Miss B Haven bee (which are sewing blocks from The Bee Hive quilts series), the queen chose the Fizzy quilt block in soft pink, orange, and teal. I made mine ...

Not Your Granny’s Liberty from Blossom Heart Quilts

Every month, I receive beautiful bundles of Liberty from Ava & Neve, and lately, they’ve taken a gorgeous turn for the better. Each bundle is now beautifully curated to create a mini kit of sorts! They’re fresh, modern, stunning… Nothing granny about these Liberty Society bundles!

Ava and Neve Liberty Society fabric club

Last month was this rich, moody bundle of navy, mustard and teal. This month, we’re celebrating spring with pink, yellow, and green, with a touch of blue.

Supernova Quilt - Blocks One and Two from Curlicue Creations

 My Singer 301 and I have been humming right along, churning out the blocks for the Supernova quilt.  This is Block One.  I sewed four of these.  

 This is Block Two.  I sewed eight Block Twos.  The Supernova blocks are fun and easy to sew.  The only thing you have to watch out for is color placement.  It's all lovely straight seams and easy half square triangles.

 Now, on to the final block, Block Three.  This block begins with red and black half square triangles.  Such a vibrant combination!

It also features red orange and black triangles.  These four ...
