Nice.

This afternoon I will be joining some friends at for a weekend of quilting … I might get a few stitches done, along with checking out what everyone else is doing, chatting a little … or maybe a lot!

Why Kaffe? from Wedding Dress Blue

I have never sewn with Kaffe before.  Those who read my blog often are possibly wondering what happened.

Well, remember that we are redecorating.

Husband picked out throw rugs, curtains and a duvet set for winter.  This is not a picture of the actual rugs, but a similar one–ours have a strong chevron pattern, but close to the same color scheme.  “I like color,” he said.  Who knew?  After all, I have only been married to the man for 22 years.

My mother believes that my quilting has had an influence on him and slowly but surely drawn/pushed ...

Where have you been all my life? from Terificreations's Weblog

I have fallen in love. The Sizzix Big Shot Pro arrived on my doorstep a few weeks ago. After taking it out of the box, and opening the box with the dies, changing locations twice, it sat there humming a little tune looking for my attention. Well, it’s mechanical, it doesn’t really hum. You’re a … Continue reading Where have you been all my life?

Maria’s Medallion 1, 2 from Virtual Quilter

Maria's Medallion 1

Found a new series started many moons ago, and in another place, then forgotten.

Maria's Medallion 2

Now that I have found the project file again I might just have to find time between unpacking boxes and digging up the garden to play in Electric Quilt 7.

Stargazer Quilt from The Cloth Parcel

It’s that time again; we’ve got a couple of new quilt kits that have just released through Craftsy.  Stargazer (affiliate link*) is the pattern we designed for the Dreamfield fabric collection (aff*).  This fabric line has lots of sweet florals, feathers, and birds.  Some of our favorite motifs, for sure! This quilt went together rather quickly with the large […]

Pieced Love from Becca's Crazy Projects

The June 2017 UFO Challenge was number 1. Spring Water Designs was trying to keep me on-track to finish so many things this year. I made great progress until June when I was invited to a wedding and couldn't resist designing and making a quilt just to celebrate the occasion. Of course this means I didn't get the June quilt finished.  

I did manage to get back into the swing of things with July. July is number 6, the heart quilt that I have been working on for what seems like forever. The heart blocks can be made ...

New week, new border from Making A Lather


I have the border on Star Gazing (quiltville), but it seems to be missing something. hmm... I added another row of blocks and it is more square than rectangle. I prefer a rectangle quilt. Which do you prefer? But it is big enough for a bed.



I have a few more box kite (quiltville) blocks done. I am having fun digging through my 2 1/2 inch squares for the centers.


In preparation for borders and squaring mill girls, I have been cleaning off my cutting table ..again.
When I measured for the borders for star gazing, I realized it ...

Less Logs in the Cabin 61, 62, 63, 64, 65 from Virtual Quilter

Less Logs in the Cabin 61

I like it … might be the favourite for the day!

Less Logs in the Cabin 62

What looks like sashing is really just the outer strip of a Log Cabin block. Like the variation of the width of the outer strips in the curved blocks … adds a lot of interest to the design.

Less Logs in the Cabin 63

Love the one above … now it is my favourite for the day. I think!

Less Logs in the Cabin 64

Or perhaps this is the favourite … sometimes it is hard to pick!

Less Logs in the Cabin 65

I like this one, but one of the others is my favourite!

More Log Cabin designs mid week, next week.

Free Pattern: Christmas Joy Pillow from Gray Barn Designs

While Sandy was visiting, we went to the Red Rooster Quilt Store in Dublin, Ohio.  They have a great selection of 2017 Christmas fabrics in stock!

Jingle Toss by Maywood Studio caught my eye because it has a colorful mix of Christmas words and graphics.  I bought 2 fat quarters, a few coordinating fabrics and designed a pillow cover.  Here is the result!

Joy2

I designed the pillow cover to fit a 16 x 16 inch pillow form.  It’s the perfect size for my couch…not to big and not too small!

Joy4

I used three pairs of ties at the ...

WIP Wednesday #297 @TN&TN from The Needle and Thread Network

It's hot...and sticky...but creating is awesome. I know a few folks who do outdoor crafting in the summer. Specifically tie-dyeing! I've done indigo dying outside in summer as well (only once but it was so much fun!)

How about you? Any fun outdoor based crafting? 

Please share what you're working on this week...we would love to see it. The link-up is open from noon Tuesday (Pacific time) until noon Thursday (Pacific time).





Do you know that you don't have to have a blog to link up? You can use a picture from your ...

Charity Sew Along Block #7 - whirl along with this one! from Pat Sloan's Blog

Article continues below these Amazon Goodies

I am pretty darn excited! My version of the Charity quilt came back from the 'Spa' and it's so amazing to see the dark navy background.  I promise to show part of it soon.. i want to get the binding on. This is my 3rd year making a quilt to be auctioned for Charity. It's an honor to do this and I am partnering with the Fat Quarter shop & Moda fabrics to raise money for Make a Wish this year.

Autumn Daze Quilting 12 from Virtual Quilter

Autumn Daze Quilting 12

This is the perfect day to share a virtual quilt from this series … I started packing way back in autumn, and now it is time to start unpacking … I think winter arrived somewhere during that time, and spring is just six weeks away. Amazing what happens while you spend a lot of time with your head in a box!

I will let you in on a little secret … not much unpacking will be done this week, but I will be searching for the bags I packed ready to go to a retreat on Friday … two days with fellow quilters and ...

Rainy Days, Mondays and so much fun from Terificreations's Weblog

I do love rainy days, Monday’s not so much. As a day its perfectly fine, I seem to like Thursday’s better. Thursdays are fascinating, vibrant, full of life, looking forward to the weekend, still full of work yet, almost to the weekend. I’m heading into the City later this afternoon to meet a couple of … Continue reading Rainy Days, Mondays and so much fun

In the Mail Monday from Becca's Crazy Projects

I finally used up the last of the Heat'n Bond featherweight I ordered by accident a couple years ago to make t-shirt quilts. It worked really well for interfacing bag linings so I decided it was time to order some more. Once I decide I like a product, I no longer buy it by the yard. I buy the bolt so I always have it on hand.

I didn't want to have an Amazon.com basket with only on thing in it, so I grabbed a couple other things. The New Quick & Easy Block Tool! because I like ...

The African Quilt, Today's Pet Peeve, and First Zucchini Report of 2017 from caledonia quilter

OMG, this African Quilt is quite a work of art.

 Where to start, where to start?  Well, GOOGLE is where we all start today, I think.  Because the little corner of my brain where "African designs & motifs" is supposed to reside is apparently empty.

Lots and lots of s.i.d.

After s.i.d. then it's time to add in some African background quilting.

I have a great deal of admiration for quilters who are so adept at applique.  It also appears that she has an embroidery machine that (wait for it...) she knows how to use.
