Ain’t No Junk: Trunk Tell All!! from Lisa H Calle's Blog

Tick, Tock, Goes the Clock..Tuesday’s the BIG day! 

Yes, my fellow quilters and students have asked; and I have listened! Therefore, I am thrilled to announce that this Tuesday, July 17th, my online “Trunk Tell All” will go live! PLUS a lot of extras!

I have been hearing from many of you, far and wide, how you would love the opportunity to attend my trunk show but unfortunately logistically it just doesn’t work. That is simply unacceptable; I just cannot allow that to continue. There will be no more worries about where I”ll be, and how ...

 Modern Decor

When my niece, Amanda and her husband, Darnell, came for a visit a few months ago they requested I make a pillow.  The young couple have been diligently making their house a home.

Before I made their pillows, (pictured above), I did a little experimenting with stitch patterns.  The fabric was the inspiration for the surface thread design so any added elements should be simple and elegant.

After I finished her pillows, I decided to experiment a little more and use the new Westalee Design Decorative Ruler Foot to stitch rattail cord. The black cord was used to ...

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!

Windings Ways - Modern Vintage Part 2

There are several phases to making a quilt. Each phase has many steps. The phases are fabric selection, the quilt top pattern design and finally, the surface quilting design. Each of these can be simultaneously challenging and fun.

Selecting  Southern Blooms and Neutral Vanilla  was indeed fun!  As an Island Batik Ambassador, several gorgeous fabrics we given to me for the April challenge - Looking Back, Vintage Quilts Inspiring New Creations.

Selecting the thread for free-motion quilting is also fun and challenging. Should the thread blend or contrast with the fabric? I choose Aurifil 50wt ...

What an Amazing Show! from The Free Motion Quilting Project

Whew! This weekend was such an amazing experience. I attended the VDTA / SDTA show in Charlotte, NC and hung out with Grace Company at their booth.

**These Cut & Quilt rulers are just about ready! We're hoping to be shipping by mid-April and I'm planning to make a whole bunch of videos to teach you how to use them.**

I'd never heard of this show until 2 months ago and it was such a ...

New Walking Foot Quilting Tutorial and Late Night Quilting from The Free Motion Quilting Project

This has been one crazy week! Changing the location of quilting tutorials doesn't sound like a big deal, but yeah, it's a big deal.

Click here to find the new tutorial: How to Quilt Desert Sand.

I find that just being on the site and working on one page makes me want to work on another, then another. This is great because a lot of updating needs to happen there and it's high time I get it done.

The downside is I ...
