Hex Is Gone Quilt from Quiltmanufaktur

Hex is gone Quilt nach einem Pattern von Taren Studios stand schon länger auf meiner To-Do Liste, weil er genau zu den Stoffen passte, die ich bei meinem letzten Besuch auf der Nadelwelt bei meiner lieben Kollegin Ursel von Quilt Cabin ergattern konnte! Ich glaube, es handelte sich um eine Serie von Paintbrush Studios, sicher bin ich mir aber nicht...
So ist es eben... ich bin auch Jäger und Sammler und an schönen Stoffen komme ich auch nicht vorbei!
Ergänzt habe ich die "Gone Hexie"-Stücke mit Kona Cotton Snow und die Rückseite ist ein Art Gallery von Maureen Cracknell ...

Starbucks Treat, Teresa's Video, QAYG Autumn Tablerunner from Canadian Needle Nana

 No sign of a groundhog in about a month now. Also my hummingbirds have disappeared. Yesterday, the geese flew overhead with their familiar wild honking. I never tire of watching their beautiful v's cross the sky. 

LeAnna at Not Afraid of Color's new prompt has to do with our favourite spices. Recently I was here, a rare spot for me to be.

I ordered something completely new to me (well, everything in there is new to me really)...the Apple Crisp Oat Macchiato with cinnamon, a spice I like but just a little of. Anyway, it was delicious ...

Cradle Quilts Update from From My Carolina Home

This past week, I was able to move other projects along and find a day to make a few cradle quilts. I combed through some of my project bags with leftover bits from other projects, like this one with HSTs left over from Scrap Dance Quadrille. I had enough to do some pinwheel blocks.

I sewed the pinwheel blocks, practicing my seaming through the ‘x’ for sharp points.

Adding some large yellow squares, I laid out the elements for web method construction.

This makes the assembly go very fast.

In short order, I had the block done.

Pulling another bag ...

I fell in love with this panel from QT Fabrics as soon as I saw it! The colors are so rich!

The panel by Gina Jane for QT Fabrics, measures 36″ x 42″ including the frames. I cut my strips 3.25″ to yield 5″ finished hexies. The 6 panels yielded 165 hexies.

Tuxedo Vest Progress from High Road Quilter

 When I entered the finish of my portraits quilt on my spreadsheet, I noticed how far behind I am in my very easy goal of finishing more quilts than I start this year. As the weather is turning cooler, I know that I need to make some fast progress towards my goal.

I have pulled out my Tuxedo Vest quilt since it looked like it would be a quick finish. It took me a while to search out what I had named this quilt.  The name will change, but I haven't come up with a new name. 

It turns ...

Wild Potato Chip from Wedding Dress Blue

I love anything goes scrappy quilts for donation projects. You never know exactly how they will turn out.

A great pattern for this sort of quilt is the Potato Chip block. All you need is a big pile of scraps cut into 2-1/2″x4-1/2″ rectangles.

You can even use scrappy binding scraps to finish.

My husband has said that my quilts are energy efficient. I assumed he was referring to my use of scraps. Nope! He says they are energy efficient because no one needs a night light since they practically glow in the dark. I’m taking ...

Some Glasgow Adventures from The Quilt Quine

This week was rather busy as I got myself organised to teach 2 workshops in Glasgow. I had 3 customer quilts to complete, hand-outs to prepare and some samples to produce. I drew several examples of quilting designs and laminated them until my aged laminator decided to swallow some whole. I tried taking it apart but I decided it was a lost cause. I think in future I might actually stitch the examples as well for reference. 

I stopped in Dundee on the way to Glasgow to visit the Tartan Exhibition at the V&A. It was a really diverse ...
