Kelly’s Custom Quilts 8, 9 from Virtual Quilter

Kelly's Custom Quilts 8

A design for an applique quilt … love it.

Kelly's Custom Quilts 9

Love the little bit of quilting too.

When I started quilting it was essential to quilt heavily as most wadding we could buy was not bonded like modern wadding. I find it a bit sad that quilts are now quilted densely, which makes them stiff … and every line of quilting takes away some of the warmth as well as the comfort.

stash report June 17, 2018 from Making A Lather

There was a $2.00 bundle at goodwill this week. Some of the fabrics went right back to goodwill, but I think I got my money's worth,



I had no idea the pieced blocks were in the bundle - serendipity





I kept 5 yards which about half of the bundle.

I have a great quilt to bind today for my slow stitching that I will show next week.

six-sided stitching . . . from Count it *all* JOY!

I'd made good progress on my challenge quilt . . . then ran into a snaffu, which has stumped me. Rather, I was trimming it down and trimmed it too much.  The minimum size has to be met, and I unwittingly trimmed 1/2" below that.  Ugh.  My last day to work on it will be Friday/Saturday of next week. I need to quickly figure out how to right my wrong.

I also made progress on my hexie quilt (and didn't then impede said progress with a stooopid mistake).  Our summer pattern for Fridays is to take the boat out ...

Modern Quilt Challenge - Taffy CandyThis was a super fun project... from Living Water Quilter



Modern Quilt Challenge - Taffy Candy

This was a super fun project from beginning to end. I designed Taffy Candy for the June Island Batik Ambassador challenge. The fun pink, red and black fabrics were generously provided by Island Batik.

The bold reds against the black fabric is striking. The black fabric is called Snowflake and the color name is called Gun Metal. It’s part of the Winter collection Alpine Ice.

Using Hobbs Heirloom Black batting makes a difference. I also used black thread for piecing.

Straight line quilting is perfect for a clean modern look. First, the quilt  sandwich ...

You Rule! from Terificreations's Weblog

When the door bell rings, and the guy in brown leaves a box, quickly turning, dashing down the sidewalk before reaching the door, let alone getting it open. Boxes bring stuff, often quilterly stuff. Unless of course, you are my Sweetie then those boxes bring other stuff, not quilt related stuff. While the excitement builds… Continue reading You Rule!

"In the Garden"—Hydrangea from Telling Stories Through the Needle's Eye

The gardens are bursting forth with blooms as the first day of summer rapidly approaches. This month's block in our In the Garden BOM series is the Hydrangea. I (Teri) have always loved the bountiful blooms of a hydrangea, and I am particularly partial to the blue/purple ones. I was excited to create these flowers, capturing their dimensional beauty.

We will be creating the mophead or French variety of hydrangea, the most common type. It has a large, rounded flower head that is composed of many single blossoms. I cut my purple wool into a pile of one-inch ...

Snowflake corners from Making A Lather

This is the last part of the snowflake block.



It's time to make the corners. Here is a quick tutorial for foundation piecing. The wrong side of the fabric faces the wrong side of the paper. Each piece has been cut to size.


The piecing on the corner will use the prints in number order. #2 print is the same as # 1 on the wings. #5 on the corner is the same  #4 on the wings. # 8 on the corner is the same as # 7 on the wings.


The first set of rectangles is the smaller set. The next ...

Where Flowers Bloom Hop from Sew Incredibly Crazy

Welcome to my day of 


This Blooming Fun Hop

Have you ever had buyer remorse?
The picture of the kit or fabric
you purchased looks totally different 
from what you thought it was.
Well, for this hop, 
I decided to break out a kit
that I had purchased a few years back.
And it had a whole bunch of flowers on it.

Let's just say a whole lot of flowers on it.
At this point, I am not
quite sure if I like it at all.
It might just be ...

70s Log Cabin 46, 47, 48, 49, 50 from Virtual Quilter

70s Log Cabin 46

This was named for the style of fabrics used … the ones I used in dressmaking BQ … Before Quilting.

70s Log Cabin 47

I hope I never have to use those fabrics for clothing again, but would love to have some scraps to use in quilts!

70s Log Cabin 48

I thought the one above would be my favourite for the day …

70s Log Cabin 49

… but changed my mind when I saw the one above.

70s Log Cabin 50

And then changed again.

That is the lot for this week … more Log Cabin designs next week, mid week.

Black and Gold Quilts 2

I love it!

Uses just one quilting motif, with a few small modifications.

I said yesterday I had converted all my project files to EQ8 … I lied.

I found enough to fill in most of the next two weeks, not including all the Log Cabin ones yet to make the conversion!
