Our Quilted Inspirations! from Bear Patch Quilting

 We recently enjoyed the pleasure of hosting Nina McVeigh, a Bernina Educator, for 2 classes in the store.  We were so please and gratified to have a full house for her presentations!  We all enjoyed and learned from her topic, "Quilted Inspiration".


Nina travels the country for Bernina as an sewing expert and teacher.  She shared her own experience of a trip to the Bernina headquarters in Switzerland, and the inspired quilts that came to be.  It was eye-opening to see the pictures of places and things on that trip which she turned into quilt designs.



Along the journey, she ...

One day I’ll quilt this quilt from Terificreations's Weblog

I don’t know when though. When life was (ahem) normal, and I went to quilt guild meetings with regularity, and I participated in challenges…sigh…those were the days. I signed up for the center of the Round Robin. The night this was due at the guild meeting I had a brief facebook conversation with Renee wondering what … Continue reading One day I’ll quilt this quilt

Lots of Love Quilted Trivet and Pattern from Curlicue Creations

I finished something!  It's this country cute Lots of Love trivet/mug rug/table topper kitchen decor.  Sweet and simple, sewn with adorable gingham print pink and green fabrics.  This little quilt is 12" x 12", just the right size for a basket of hot rolls, or pan of brownies.

Here's a more direct picture.  I struggled a little with the quilting on this one, but I believe it came out okay.  I quilted simple geometric designs over the nine patch blocks and outlines around the pink hearts.  I used a white ...

Quick Curve Ruler from Quilt Collection M.

Wie oft habe ich schon den Quick Curve Ruler aus der Schublade gezogen und einen Quilt daraus gemacht? Ganz ehrlich: Ich weiß es nicht. Nachher suche ich mal die entsprechenden Quilts heraus...

Die drei Sew Kind of Wonderful Damen haben wieder ein neues kostenloses Muster auf ihre Webseite gestellt und natürlich wollte ich das ausprobieren. Außerdem habe ich noch einige schöne gekaufte QCR-Muster zu Hause liegen. Die müssen ja auch getestet werden.

I love the Quick Curve Ruler and the Mini Curve Ruler of the Sew Kind of Wonderful sisters. That´s no secret. I love to cut with it ...

you can't take the sky from me from Becca's Crazy Projects

In case you didn't know, I'm a big fan of all things Firefly. We rarely go a day without a Firefly reference in this house.

A couple years ago I bought Sam Hunter's wonderful book Quilt Talk. That book convinced me that paper piecing is not just possible, but much easier than I thought. I love the alphabet she created and I knew just the thing I wanted to make.

I don't remember how many different colors of red, orange, and yellow I used, but I'm pretty sure it was all of the three that ...

FREE Sew Along Dandy Drive Block 3 from Pat Sloan's Blog

Time for Part 2 of Dandy Drive Sew Along, designed by my good friend Sarah Maxwell of Designs by Sarah J.... Time to sew the next part of the flower...

Pat Sloan Dandy Drive Block 3

"Block 3"  are the stems! 

I used the same fabric for each stem, but you could mix it up and make it scrappy.

Pat Sloan Dandy Drive top before binding

Here is my reveal of a 2 flower 1 butterfly version, It will have red binding but I think it needs just a little something 'else'. You'll have to stay tuned to see what I share!

Sarah have kit options at her site, they are so ...

What’s in Your Ears? from Terificreations's Weblog

      Music is so fun. Weird fact: I didn’t listen to pop music, watch mtv, or go to the movies as a teenager.  It’s a long story for another blog entirely. So now, when something fun comes up I like it and add it as a station on Pandora or find a YouTube … Continue reading What’s in Your Ears?

T - Shirts and Me Two from Quilt Fabrication

Here's another installment in the t-shirt quilt saga. Over the last few days, I've gotten two more tops done.

These two are similar in layout, though one had five shirts to work with, and the other four. The one yard border pieces have made for great additional blocks, an idea to consider for any quilt.

This one, with the fun 'grandpa' shirt, is for his granddaughter,


and this one, with the wild electrical cord background, is for his daughter.


So far, so good! Two more to go, then it's on to the quilting. See you next week ...

180 Baby from Dueling Threads

 

 

This is known.  A new baby, especially the first is a life changing, schedule changing, priority changing event.  The smaller the package, the bigger the change! You might say life takes a 180-degree turn.

When I saw geometrics with these colors on a colleagues registry for their first child, I just couldn’t help it.  Instead of well wishes of diapers, I couldn’t resist “just” making a quilt!  The idea for “180 Baby” was born.

I was heading to a quilt retreat with the Kansas City Modern Quilt Guild at the “Disneyland of Quilting”, Missouri Star Quilt Company.  This ...

Thinking! from Terificreations's Weblog

This words of this meme have been popping up all over the place the last few days. And I’ve seriously had to give these words consideration. Would I write a book? Well, uh. Ummm. Ehrm. Tried this. Didn’t go so well. Life got uncomfortably in the way, so fail? Not sure but at some point … Continue reading Thinking!

pink sampler finish from Making A Lather



I have a finish. The pink sampler is quilted and bound and ready to be gifted to my friend who loves pink. This is one of my one monthly goal finishes. I received these blocks as an orphan adoption. you can read about it here. Many thanks to Cathy. I love it.




I brought home a few treasures from the fiber fair. I have never spun alpaca before, and this lady was very encouraging, so I bought this from her alpaca named Halesisa.
As I sit more and more, I thought this lamb fleece would be comfy. The gray stripe ...

Quilting With Rulers - Circles & WreathsI’m falling in love... from Living Water Quilter







Quilting With Rulers - Circles & Wreaths

I’m falling in love with wreath templates. They are versatile in whole or in part. This is the second in a series of a simple nine patch design that features free- motion quilting with Westalee Design’s wreath 11 template.

image

Placing a partial section of the wreath in a corner with echo quilting adds another pattern structure, while maintaining design uniformity.  Another difference between this quilt and the first is the addition of a free motion filler design in the background.

In addition to the wreath template and the 12″ Arc for straight line ...
