Quilterati: A New Look from Terificreations's Weblog

This morning scrolling through social media I learned of the passing away of hand quilter extraordinaire Elsie Campbell. Her accomplishments in the world of quilting include award winning hand quilter as recently as Road to California (scroll to the bottom), author, and teacher. Elsie’s latest quilt honored her fifty year marriage with her husband, Ken.… Continue reading Quilterati: A New Look

slotted trimmers for scraps from Making A Lather

I was working on my red scrap projects for the month and I am trying a new block -star and crown-using my civil war reproduction fabric. I need 6 - 2 inch hsts per block. When I reached for my slotted trimmer to trim them, I realized I had another favorite scrap taming tool to share. I have had this trimmer for a couple of years. At first it was difficult to remember to not iron the hsts open. But, I grew to really like the results, and I can trim before I iron, while they are still sewn and laying ...

Scrappy Quarter Cabins from Becca's Crazy Projects

I have a big bag of scraps left over from making charity quilts. I wanted some simple sewing so I decided to make some Scrappy Quarter Cabins. I learned this technique from Christina Cameli on her blog A Few Scraps. If you need more help than you like, there is also an online course. Nine blocks is a good start!
I'm sure I will be making these for a while before I have enough for a small quilt. I made a large one in August 2020 you can read about in this post

I will share my list of ...

Heart Quilt : Together Quilt from Sewing Under the Little Mushroom Cap

Another heart quilt in the making, I just love heart shapes and always love the opportunity to make heart quilt blocks.

Previous Heart Quilt on the blog

This quilt in progress is a new start late last year. When I first saw the pattern, I knew straight away that I wanted to make it. Something about the alternate blocks and the varieties of the heart quilt blocks that makes me want to jump right in and start piecing. 

I also love the idea of making a few ...

blossom time from Making A Lather

I have cut pieces for a stashbuster 2022 quilt in red. I haven't put one together yet but it looks fun. I have a small box of the right size pieces but not matching. So I will cut some more each month.

cut for stash buster challenge

I have relocated an older ufo to the sewing room to work on this year. Blossom time is a quiltville pattern. I started working on it from quiltmaker magazine, before there was a quilt pattern. I counted what I needed and cut the new pieces from red scraps. I think these blocks ...

end of rainbow finish from Making A Lather

I have another finish for January from my rainbow scrap challenge at so scrappy projects. I sewed the crumb blocks here - during 2019 by color of the month. I found this in a -book here by Melissa Corey

it is 82x82 and used 20 yards

I used a cotton sheet for the back and a scrappy binding.

I did free motion swirls for the quilting. I really like swirls and may just do all of my quilts like that. Quick and easy is best.

So, what do we do at the shop anyway? from QUilting By-You

How are you doing with your Ufo’s this week? We will just keep our updates/pictures to the first week of the month so that we aren’t going on and on and on about them, but I will say we are still making progress!

We thought we would take a little time and talk about the shop today. Some of you may be new to us or maybe you have a shop like ours in your area! We are not your typical quilt shop. We do not carry fabric or notions or batting. What we do have are ...

Vintage Jenny | Colorado Quilt from The Cutting Table Quilt Blog - A Blog for Quilters by Quilters

Have you ever heard of a Colorado block? Many quilters know this quilt classic by another name, the Dutch Windmill. Using layer cakes, this traditional half-square triangle quilt block comes together in a flash creating a unique and vintage design that has been loved for many years. How many years to be exact? While Jenny couldn’t find much information on the original of the name Dutch Windmill, the Colorado quilt block can be traced back to 1941 where it was published in the Kansas City Star!

To stitch up this classic you’ll need two layers cakes, one of ...

Exploring Collaboration: part 4 from Ellyn's Place

Today is the fourth installment of Exploring Collaboration, a series of blog posts offered up twice a month by Karen Bolan and me. We've really enjoyed sharing our thoughts with you and look forward to future conversations about collaboration with many fellow quilters.

For this week's exploration of collaboration, I have a specific idea that you might try with a group of friends.  Hopefully the world will soon begin to open up again and we will be more able to join with fellow quilters on retreats, for quilting days, workshops and other in person activities. Here's a ...

a lifetime of scraps from Making A Lather

This has been an eclectic scrap bucket.   Sorting this scrap bucket, I have found some fun surprises. I obviously just threw everything I wanted to clean up into the bucket at one point. I really like old blocks and feel a real urgency to rescue them. But, I don't know what to do with them. So, with indecision, they were doomed to a scoop and tidy. 

aren't these wonderful vintage fabrics?

I had already cut the 10 inch square. This was the pile of  scraps that I thought were big enough to have a 5 inch square cut ...

Florid Bloom Quilting from Becca's Crazy Projects

This quilt has waited longer to get quilted than most. You can learn more about this quilt in this post from September 2020, or this one also from September 2020. Those posts will tell you where to buy the Florid Bloom template set and Double Wedding Ring Quilts book from Victoria Findlay Wolfe.
I chose this fun daisy pantograph and let the machine do its magic. All this quilt needs now is some binding so it can be the quilt it has always wanted to be.

Quilt Finish: Assemble! from Becca's Crazy Projects

I've had this fabric in my collection for a while. I knew it would become quilt binding one day. This past weekend was that day. I cut my strips and made that binding. The stripes on the fabric are not straight but sort of wavy. Striped binding is one of my favorites because it is just so much fun. 
Then, I attached it by machine and finished it with the machine for a quick finish. I rarely finish binding by hand any more. 
Second quilt finish of 2022. It took nearly a year from start to finish. Not because ...
