Seeing Stars: Modified Blocks from Wedding Dress Blue

I caught up on the “curvy” blocks by not doing them curvy.

See, I knew that there was little chance I could complete 28 applique blocks and there needed to be some connection in the quilt.

So, (ta-dah!) I have started on these little blocks that mirror the center of the modified curvy blocks.

Good choice?

Thanks to Melissa for the Seeing Stars Quiltalong.  Even though I have changed a few things, I have found it most inspiring.

Seeing Stars: (Non)Improv Blocks And Basic Blocks from Wedding Dress Blue

Still playing catch up. 20180915_203203

I wasn’t feeling very “improv” myself, I guess, but the Improv Blocks came out as Basic Blocks.  Maybe I should have varied the centers somehow?   But, at least they are done.

And the Basic Blocks, too.

Nearly caught up and looking forward to next week’s final release of the Seeing Stars Quiltalong.

But, I have pieced a little and managed to complete the four pinwheel star blocks for the Seeing Stars Quiltalong by Happy Quilting.

Moovin' On Up from MMM Quilts

This is the second quilt I made for Sarah's Hands2Help charity quilt drive at Confessions of a Fabric Addict. It's also my finished quilt for Roseanne's No Stress Sew Along at Home Sewn By Us. It's also on my Q3FAL list which is here!


The pattern is a free one off Sew Mama Sew and was one of Roseanne's three choices you could do for her SAL. It's designed by Alyssa of Pile o' Fabric. I had the flimsy done back in July, and the quilt in the first few days of August during ...

Seeing Stars Quiltalong: Three BIG Blocks from Wedding Dress Blue

The first blocks of the Seeing Stars quilt-along came out this week:  24″ Double Star Block.  DSC01187

People will sometimes comment that they are surprised I can work with such small pieces.  Actually, the challenge this week was working with such LARGE pieces.  It has been a long time.  When working across long seams and big pieces things like direction of grain and  pinning become much more important.

Also, my thanks to Melissa for a great tip this week.  Check out her post and see how she pins pieces to help her flying geese be more precise.  It really makes a ...

Seeing Stars Fabric from Wedding Dress Blue

One of my goals for the year was to participate in a quilt-along.  There have been several, but none really caught my eye.  Until this one:  Seeing Stars.

YAY!  The year was going fast and I was starting to get worried.  Instead, I happily reviewed my “someday” fabric and found just the thing.  Particularly when combined with scraps and fabric from the color bins.

Now, just waiting until the first block is released next Monday.  You have time…want to join us?

A Bright Addition & Prize Winners For Plus Playtime QAL from MMM Quilts

You've seen the flimsy, and if you follow me on Instagram, @mmmquilts, you might've seen a quick shot of the finished quilt. Here's another, better one of the quilt I've named A Bright Addition:


As soon as I saw the Alison Glass fabric bundle for the small plus blocks that Darla at Clinton Modern Creative had put together, I knew they had to pack themselves up and fly their way to me for another Plus Playtime quilt. Well, there's a surprise to this little cutie.  'Little' being the clue... When I got them, I had ...

Ketchup from MMM Quilts

Or Catch-up! However,  ketchup, which I really like, is red, and red is the RSC2018 colour for July...see the crazy way my mind works?!  I got my red blocks done over a week ago, super-early for me!


Once again, I love them. Memories abound, both old and new, probably the main reason I love scrap quilts so very much.

A Bit of Everything from MMM Quilts

I was dark almost all weekend, meaning I stayed off-line. Didn't read blogs, didn't post on Instagram, except for my yoga challenge and one quilt photo, didn't even look at gmail. So my apologies if you're wondering why I haven't read your TBT post or responded to a comment. However, I was pretty productive, despite not sewing at all on Saturday because of IRL commitments.


The first item on the catch-up list is the Fireburst mystery that Tish of Tish N Wonderland is hosting. This is my fabric pull...
