Cog + Wheel Quilt Top from Blossom Heart Quilts

In September 2017, I took a class with Denyse Schmidt at Amitie and began to make the Cog + Wheel quilt pattern. At the time, it was a bit of a challenge for my quilting skills – templates, curves, inset blocks… Perhaps “challenge” isn’t quite the right word, but more of a slight fear-inducing pattern.

But I was up for the challenge, and I had some good quilty friends with me in the class, so all-in-all, it was a fantastic day! I managed to finish two blocks, and in the following weeks, I made one more partial block and cut another ...

Daisy Chain QAL {Quilt Top Reveal} from Little Bunny Quilts

It's here -- the big reveal!

Radiant Jewel {Quilt Top} from Little Bunny Quilts

My mom, sister, and I are doing our own "UFO of the month" challenge and this month's UFO is my Radiant Jewel quilt. I started this quilt in August of last year when I went to "Quilt Camp" and when I had last posted about this quilt in October, I had just finished all of the blocks for the center of the quilt.

I was very excited to pull this one back out and start working on putting the top together. I finally laid out all of the blocks for the quilt.

I had to make sure all of ...

New material coming! from Maria the Quilter

I know you probably come here for the photos, because, well let’s be honest: in the quilting world, words mean far less than photos. I can explain a stitch but when you see a picture of it, that’s WAY more meaningful. In person? EVEN better!

What I’m here to say is that I am here. I haven’t been posting pix – I had a bit of an issue with my tools but am almost back to full capability there. I have been busy writing on my personal blog (here).

So in the meantime, PLEASE please visit my ...

Finish Those Old Quilt Projects! from Blossom Heart Quilts

It’s amazing what you dig up when you go through every. single. thing in your sewing room and are determined to either use it/store it properly, or get rid of it! Orphan quilt blocks, old quilt projects, fabric that you would never use anymore… None of it is terrible, it’s just not you anymore! And that’s ok.

These kinds of projects are great for those moments when you just want to sew something anything – pick it up and make it into something! Even just finishing off quilt tops that can then be donated to charity is ...

Early April Showers {Finished Quilt Top} from Little Bunny Quilts

Here in Pennsylvania, there's been a lot of rain and a lot of snow since about mid-January. I think we've gotten our share of April Showers and we're only in the second week of March!

I also have April Showers on the brain because I have *finally* (yes, finally!) finished the quilt top of my Coast to Coast Traveling Bee quilt from 2017 -- made mainly from the April Showers line from Bonnie and Camille!

Here's the quilt the when it returned to me in 2017:

This quilt will likely live in the guest room (which is ...

Good Fortune {Finished Quilt Top} from Little Bunny Quilts

After having to make a bunch more units for my borders (which was a long detour!) I have finished my Good Fortune quilt top!

The first task was finishing up the extra green HSTs for my green HST border. I also cut the necessary extra units for my QST units at the same time.

It was nice to already be mostly done with this border and only have to worry about adding on the last side!

I decided to skip the neutral border from the original quilt and just add the QST border directly to the HST border as it ...

Bow Tie Quilt – Quilt Big Book Tour from Blossom Heart Quilts

What a great way to start the new month than with getting to share about the new book by my friend and fellow Aussie quilt designer, Jemima Flendt from Tied With A Ribbon. Her second book, Quilt Big, is all about supersizing quilt blocks for faster finishes… with style!

Quilt BIG Book by Jemima Flendt

The photography in this book is just stunning. When I first saw the cover last year, I knew it was going to be good. And I wasn’t disappointed! The photos are beautifully styled, with cosy backdrops and perfectly coordinated props.

Good Fortune {Clue #1} + Double Delight {Finished Top} from Little Bunny Quilts

Despite the fact that I had to work on Black Friday (boo!) I was able to take a half day, complete a bunch of errands, and get all of the sewing done on Clue #1 for the Good Fortune Mystery Quilt!

For this clue we eased ourselves in a little bit with simple four patches made with our background fabric and our red fabric -- since the only color I changed was replacing orange with aqua, nearly all of my units will be the same as Bonnie's examples.

I used approximately 16 different red fabrics for these four patches, some ...

Drift Away {Bordered} from Little Bunny Quilts

At the same time that I worked on my Breezy Blooms quilt, I added the black sashing strips to the top of my Drift Away quilt. The suggestion to add a skinny black sashing before adding a print border was given by quite a few of you and you were definitely right!

And then it sat, because I just wasn't sure what to use for the final border. I finally got the border fabric at the beginning of October. (Only, like, two months later. You can tell it's been a long time since I worked on this project ...

Cozy Cabins {Quilt Top} from Little Bunny Quilts

As an Island Batik Ambassador, I am provided with samples of various lines of Island Batik fabrics to use and share with you!

Log cabin month rolls on for the Ambassadors! Make sure to check out the Island Batik Facebook page to see what the other Ambassadors have been making!

My quick and easy blocks were so quick and easy that I forgot to take a picture of all of them before I put them into the quilt top!

These blocks...

...(and a few more just like them) became this quilt top!

My original plan was a 5 block by ...

Peak a Who? Blog Hop from Quilted Delights

Welcome to my day of the Peak a Who? blog hop.  Hosted by Marian of Seams to Be Sew.  I have a few items to show today that I have worked on over the past few months.

First up, I wanted to tackle an old Halloween UFO.  I created one just like it several years ago in 2010 as part of the "La Petite - A Year of Small Projects" challenge. This pattern is called Paganini from Ms. Rosie's Quilt company and is designed for Charm Packs. When I first cut out the project I used several 5 inch strips ...

Christine's Kitchen 2.0 {Finished Quilt Top} from Little Bunny Quilts

My Chrstine's Kitchen top -- version 2.0! -- is now ready for quilting!

I sewed together the three out of four of the rows of blocks right away. The last remaining row is the row containing the two flower blocks which stick out of the vases.

For my two applique blocks, I decided to make white daisies with blue centers. I made my flowers larger than the applique templates in the pattern, so I made two flowers for each block instead of three for each block. These fabrics, as well as the green stems and leaves, came out of my ...

Drift Away {Piecing Complete) from Little Bunny Quilts

In between working on my Island Batik challenge for July, I've been plugging away at my Drift Away quilt and have been able to finish the top!

Or at least, finish the pieced part of the top. Much like my Double Delight quilt top, I'm not sure if I want to add a border onto this quilt or not. My original plan and my current inclination is to add a 5" border all the way around for a 90" square quilt since I'm thinking about giving this quilt as a wedding gift (that is, once the recipients ...

Double Delight {Completed Quilt Top} from Little Bunny Quilts

Since I had not one, but two Saturdays last week because I took Friday off work, I was able to get two quilt tops done! One is an upcoming project for Moda Bake Shop that I've been sharing sneak peaks of on Instagram.

But I also finished my Double Delight quilt top! (Pattern from Bonnie Hunter's free pattern tab!) I spent a long time trying to figure out what color to use as the setting triangles. I thought I had a few options in my stash, but I wasn't thrilled with any of them. One navy was ...

30 Pearls {Quilt Top} from Little Bunny Quilts

I'm excited to share my finished quilt top for our June Island Batik Ambassador project!

First and foremost, I love that my original vision worked out so well with these fabrics and was so simple to create! Even though I'm a nervous pinner for sewing curves, the blocks were quick and easy. 

The one change from my original design is that I pieced the top and bottom sashing (which makes the quilt square rather than rectangular) instead of it being single pieces. This was out of necessity (since I was working with fat eighths!) and I think it ...

Twisted Quilt Top from Needle and Foot

I have made progress on my Twisted quilt — I have a finished quilt top!  Do you remember this project? I started it a long while back when my local quilt guild hosted a class taught by the pattern designer, Dorie Javier. It was in June of last year that I began the quilt.  I pulled it out once or twice since then and made a few more blocks for it.  Then it would sit.  Here we are, a year later, and I had hardly made any progress on it.twistedAbout two weeks ago, I had the pleasure of sewing with ...

Louisiana zine and more quilting from Fleur de Lis Quilts and Accessories

small logo for link
Want a little more Louisiana? You can find it right here! This online mag "celebrates the culure, heritage, and cuisine of Louisiana."

I just happened across it while searching for a certain quilt show. I didn't find the show, but it may have something to do with not getting any farther than this interesting piece of online real estate. Anh, someone else is doing the legwork for the quilt show. I took a few minutes and liked what I found. There are over 1,600 recipes, events calendar, and cooking videos. If you have a ...
