Quilts, Inc. Threads of Success from Terificreations's Weblog

A relatively long time ago I decided to “go into business”. I had no idea what the heck I was doing. But here I was trying to make things to sell and doing an okay job of it. But it wasn’t quite right. So when a friend and quilter asked me if I’d thought about… Continue reading Quilts, Inc. Threads of Success

Just click on the caption, which is a link to the original post.

A Nod to The East: Silkroad Fusion Collection from Art Gallery Fabrics-The Creative Blog

Hi Makers!

If you have been following AGF for a while, you would know that we don't often focus on contrasting colors of black, red, and white in our collections. Well, we decided to do things a little different this time and this time, and bring them to center stage in our latest collection! Inspired by what you’d discover while traveling the trading route that connected The East to The West, AGF created its latest collection, “Silkroad Fusion.” This fabric line celebrates the emerging trend of Asian influences in textiles with designs from ancient techniques of brushwork that ...

A Creative Homage: Art District Fusion from Art Gallery Fabrics-The Creative Blog

Have you ever spent a day exploring an artsy neighborhood?! You’d probably start your day, grabbing a cup of coffee at a cute cafe, wander in and out of art galleries, browse small shops that are filled with unique, artisanal crafts, and of course, spend some time photographing all the amazing murals you’d unexpectedly find in alleyways. In Florida, if you're looking to see some street art or explore some unique shops, galleries, plant stores and delicious cafes, our biggest art district here is "Wynwood" which is a fun place to head to! If you were here ...

'tis the season from Seriously...I think it needs stitches

It's the season for Christmas gift making and for Christmas quilts, so I thought I'd share the only Christmas quilt that I have, called Welcome Wreath. It's been hanging around for a couple of years now, but I never did post about it here. I drew it up and made it for the Riley Blake market booth out of their Comfort & Joy fabrics. It made a detour after quilt market to hang in a

International Quilt Festival #2: Collage the Garden, Wednesday and Preview night from Art and Quilting in Camden

First off, Happy US Thanksgiving to one all around the world–this was written ahead and scheduled to post because (a) not everyone is in the US and (b) sometimes we need some R&R from the feasting and festivities!

My second full day at International Quilt Festival 2018 I got to teach one of my “Quilting the Garden” workshops, Collage the Garden.  Along with Thread-Coloring the Garden, the two classes can be combined into a two-to-five day workshop–any guilds or retreats out there interested????   My students were, of course, brilliant!    They had a choice of either the tiger ...

International Quilt Festival #1: Tuesday, Birch Pond Seasons from Art and Quilting in Camden

Tuesday Morning looking at the George R. Brown Convention center from my hotel room, ready for the first day of teaching!

Before any more time elapses, it is time to blog about a wonderful International Quilt Festival 2018.   Since I have a billion photos, I’ll just insert images with little verbiage.   On Tuesday, I taught my Birch Pond Seasons class–because it was the day between Market and Festival, the class was smaller but that meant students had plenty of space to spread out and work, which is great for this class.  I love what my students did!   If ...

Album Quilts: Honoring Sue Garman and Esther Blair Matthews from Telling Stories Through the Needle's Eye

There is so much to share from International Quilt Market that I (Teri) will have to do so in several posts. If you've followed our blog for any time, you may have noticed that we love appliqué, and being members of the Baltimore Appliqué Society, our eyes are always drawn to the album style quilts. And there were plenty of those in Houston this year. 

The first exhibit I visited was the Texas Guilds' Award-Winning Traditional Quilts, with quilts from the Lone Star State that had previously won awards in their guild competitions. A few jumped out at me ...

Houston Quilt Show 2018... the details from Butterfly Threads




These quilts are so special because not only are they gorgeous from afar but up close, the tiny details just stopped me in my tracks. The perfect itty bitty circles, and the smooth curves, not to mention the quilting made this quilt extraordinary.



If this quilt doesn't make you happy, you may want to check your pulse. All of the details and color combinations just felt perfect to me.



I've wanted to make a feathered star quilt for years, and this border just elevates these stars to another solar system! The piecing in combination with the applique is ...

A Few Highlights from the International Quilt Market from Telling Stories Through the Needle's Eye


A couple of years ago, Kara and I made our first trek to the International Quilt Market in Houston, Texas. It was an exciting one, as we had a quilt, our Fairy Tale Album, on exhibit in the show. You can read about the highlights of that trip by clicking here. Unfortunately, with Kara in Germany, it wasn't possible for us to attend together this year, so our good friend and official pattern-tester, Barb, joined me (Teri) for the trip. Enjoy this photo-journal of some highlights of our Market experience. 

We left before dawn and flew over Baltimore as ...

Behind the scenes at Quilt Market 2018 from Professional Quilter

 

International Quilt Market was filled with inspiration as usual. Fabric. Notions. Quilts. Friends.

I filmed several Facebook Lives during Market. They are on our Facebook Page, so take a look and get a closer view at some of what inspired me. I toured Moda Fabrics, FreeSpirit, Northcott, RJR, and Benartex on the Market side of the floor. I also did an interview with Cathy Wiggins about her leather saddles in the Festival side of the floor.

Overall, I found that while I still found some brights in familiar lines, eg, the lines from In the Beginning and Westminster/Free Spirit ...

Quilt Market and Quilt Festival Fall 2018 Vlog! from Quilt Addicts Anonymous

I am going to keep this post super short because I am so exhausted! I have been on the road for nearly two weeks going to Houston, Texas for Quilt Market and Quilt Festival.

First I was at Market meeting with magazine editors, fabric manufacturers and other movers and shakers in the industry to help continue to grow Quilt Addicts Anonymous. Plus I did all the buying for shop.quiltaddictsanonymous.com for the next six months.

Then I changed gears and with the help of my aunt and Chief Binding Officer, we set up and vended at Quilt Festival. The ...
