Snowball and 9-Patch Quilt from A Little Bit Biased

If you're looking for a quick, scrappy way to use up 
some of your fabric stash this is a great quilt pattern for you!


Snowballs (in this case a black square with cream corner triangles) 
and 9-Patches are a classic pairing that look great in any colorway!

This project started because I had some of the black text fabric leftover
 from the back of my Giant Star quilt using the line Urban Cottage by
Urban Chiks.  You can see that post HERE (it's worth checking out, it's 
another super-fast, beginner-friendly project!)


I thought that fabric was cute ...

Mallard Duck Mini Finish with Free Motion Mavericks from Quilting & Learning

Even without my favourite sewing machine, I was able to sew and quilt with the walking foot, my son's Mallard Duck mini. When I showed it to him, he said that he would find a spot for this one and the other two that I've made for him.

Finishing the Mallard Duck

As you saw in my Making a Mallard Duck Mini post, the foundation paper piecing went well. I always manage to make at least one piece that doesn't have enough selvage but I'm really good at problem solving

New Beginnings - A Free Quilt Pattern from A Little Bit Biased

 Hi friends!  I have a new pattern to share with you today!  
And the best part?  It's FREE!


I'm calling this pattern New Beginnings.  Would you care to know why?
I love when there's a story behind a pattern or it's name so let me tell you 
TWO reasons why I chose to call it New Beginnings.  First, because of the 
Hourglass blocks.  Every time an hourglass runs out of sand and you 
flip it over, time starts anew.  The second reason I decided to call it New Beginnings, 
is because I actually made the X ...

Another Month, Another Goal... Or Two: Of Bear Paws and Kaleidoscopes from Cheeky Cognoscenti

 I was long-winded on the topic of that vintage Economy quilt yesterday, so today's post is going to be Short and Sweet!

I have a Major Goal for April as well as a Minor Goal.  The Minor Goal is to get my Color Outside the Lines bear paw quilt off my WIP list.  That entails labeling, binding, and hand finishing the binding on this one.  After clearing off the heaps of fabric debris on the cutting table from my kaleidoscope, I finally had room to trim the bear paw quilt and machine embroider its label yesterday.

Design Wall Monday - November 9, 2020 from Small Quilts and Doll Quilts

Good Morning Quilters!   This week has been a week where several projects were worked on, nothing was finished completely, and some cleaning of the quilt room happened.  Actually, a very little bit of cleaning, but some happened.  Some weeks are like that.The only quilting to show you is that the broken dishes doll quilt will now have a border of hsts.  It looked too plain, and I got out my

Tuesday's To-Do List: Still Slogging Along With Butterflies and Clam Shells from Cheeky Cognoscenti

 Might as well just get to the meat and potatoes this week!  Last week's goals turned out to be overly ambitious:

✅ finish quilting Modern Baby Clam Shells, AND 

get it labeled and   

❌ bound, AND  

❌ get my Letter Home baby quilt top and ready to load on my frame.  

After quilting the pantograph design over most of my Modern Baby Clam Shells quilt and stitching in the ditch around my butterfly appliqués  a quilter who was more goal oriented and focused than I am would have finished up the quilting with some monofilament or color matched thread to machine quilt ...

Friendship Quilts & Labels from Humble Quilts

My dear friend Julie sent me this little quilt. I don't think she even had a reason! It is so precious. 
I really do feel blessed to have such a great group of online quilt friends! 
And I've even had the bonus to chat with her on the phone. She is as sweet as ever!!



Labels, labels, labels....
I attached the little label that was sent back with my International Quilt Fest quilts. And then I remembered I had an Oregon documentation quilt label that I had never sewn on! Only waited 10 years to do it!!  That ...

Tuesday To-Do List: Finish All the Stuff I Didn't Get Done Last Week from Cheeky Cognoscenti

Good morning and Happy Tuesday!  My post for today's Long Arm Linky party got awfully long, so I thought it would be best to put my To Do's and Ta-Done's in a separate post this week.  Without further ado:  

Last Week's To-Do List:

  • Stay on top of the linky party and continue to spread the word to other machine quilters.  Get the linky post written and scheduled to publish in advance.
  • Finish the three remaining in-progress blocks for my MMBB quilt before I clear off my cutting table.
  • Trim excess batting & backing from Spirit Song
  • Digitize ...

    Label It! from From the Strawberry Patch...

    "Brother Bear" is quilted, off the rails and trimmed for finishing. My normal order of doing things, once quilting is completed, is to print out a label and make the hanging sleeve and binding; then I place the hanging sleeve and label into position and attach them at the same time that I stitch the binding on. This was the last sheet of Printed Treasures that I have on hand. I realized a few

    May One Monthly Goal from Life In Pieces

    The month of May went really fast.  Hard to believe we'll be in June by Monday.  As I was contemplating what June's One Monthly Goal should be, I realized I never posted the completion of May's One Monthly Goal.  


    The goal for May was to get the Mosaic Mystery quilt prepped and sent out for quilting.  

    Mosaic Mystery Quilt
    from Cheryl at Meadow Mist Designs

    The top and backing were finished in April.  But both needed a final press and clean up before getting packed up for quilting.

    Label Decisions from Quilt Paint Create

    Do you label your quilts?
    My first quilts did not get labels. After I made a few I added labels, but I wasn’t consistent in how I did that. I know I embroidered my name on the back of one quilt. I remember muslin squares on the backs of others.
    Then I realized I could program words into my sewing machine and it would stitch them out. There are several labels using that method, some with decorative stitch borders.
    stitched labelLater I discovered applique and started adding applique labels that matched the theme of the quilt. I remember a pine ...

    Vintage Double Wedding Ring Bed Runners Finished and Delivered! from Cheeky Cognoscenti

    Remember that Double Wedding Ring UFO that I told you about back in August?  A woman had contacted our Charlotte Quilters' Guild looking for someone who could finish an in-progress Double Wedding Ring quilt that she found in her mother's attic. She had a tub of assembled circular wedding ring blocks, a small section of a handful of blocks sewn together, and lots of tiny wedge pieces cut out.  Based on the client's recollection of when her grandmother had grown too ill to sew, as well as rough dating of the fabrics in the blocks and the techniques ...

    Semper Finished! from Cat Patches

    When I left you yesterday, I had several possibilities on my sewing room agenda. As it turns out, my only trip into the sewing room yesterday was to retrieve a blue spool of thread used to sew the label onto Semper Fi. It was the last thing I needed to do to call this very large quilt a finish.


    Sadie helped yesterday by staying put on her window shelf while I sewed the last of the binding.


    My goal was to turn the fourth corner, and then I realized only about 40 inches remained to get it into the finished ...

    Week 47 of Stitching Stuff from Life In Pieces

    What a week!  I didn't leave the office till after 9:30 PM on Friday. That's not normal for me, but it's just been that nuts at work.  It makes it hard to find time to stitch, even just 15 minutes, when days start looking like that.




    My late evening ended my long running streak of 15 minute evenings in November.  

    15 minute days/week = 6/7 days
    15 minute days/November = 22/23 days
    15 minute days/2019 = 295/327
    Success rate = 90.21%

    Still my success rate for fitting in 15 minutes of stitching time ...
