Fragmental from Liz Makes Crafts

Fragmental is the easiest quilt top I've ever pieced. That's because it's cheatercloth! I was browsing on Quilting Is My Therapy one day when I saw a quilt kit that consisted of a few panels of this really pretty geometric design, and I knew it would be fun to quilt.

Piecing of this took about 20 minutes, and most of the time was spent on pressing the fabric. But the real purpose of making this quilt top, of course, is to quilt it.

When I loaded this quilt top, it was actually a piggyback. I use wide ...

A Short Tutorial – Square in a Triangle from Katy Did Art

I’ve figured out a simple way to make a lot of Square in a Triangle units. And I thought I’d share the basic instructions to help anyone that needs to make a lot of them.

First you need to decide on the size of the square that will be in the triangle. In my example I cut a 2 1/2″ square, but you could make it any size. Cut one strip of fabric at 2 1/2″ The second strip of fabric, in a contrasting color will be cut 3/4″ larger than the first strip. In ...

Quilting Adinkra from High Road Quilter

I've been quiet lately because I have been quilting the Adinkra quilt.  I've cut some pieces for Ringo Lake mystery, but I wanted to make progress on the Adinkra quilt while the machine was set up for quilting it.

Quilting is always scary for me, especially if I like the quilt top, because I am afraid I will ruin it with the quilting. I could have mechanical problems with thread tension or needles breaking, or I could make bad choices of quilting design and thread.

 In this case, I forgot to change the thread to a lighter one ...

Free Motion Quilting Progress from Goer

Since I'm without my own laptop, my posts will be pretty brief. (But oh how nice it is to be type on a machine with a working space bar!)

My One Monthly Goal for December is to finish my son's bed quilt. It is a twin-sized quilt and had been basted for quite some time. I had thread and a quilting motif picked out. This week I finally got it under the needle and got started. After the first spiral I calculated that I needed to make about 179 more to finish the quilt. Eek! I made some ...

New Project in the Works from Quilt Fabrication

Another quilt idea is bouncing around in my head, and is slowly coming into reality.


block sneak peek


This is just a little bit, 'cause I'm still not sure if it will be what I envision. Though the Electric Quilt software is fantastic for designing quilts, it's one thing to see the quilts on the computer, and quite another when they're in fabric.

That's because design, fabric choices, size, and placement all go into the making of a quilt, sometimes with great success, and other times, not.

So far, this quilt has challenged me with the main block. Attempting ...

Updates from Tim Quilts

It has been a while since I posted, I have been busy, and still not quite up to par.  But the good news is that next procedure (to break up the pancreatic stones) is Monday morning.    I should be able to fee the benefits of that fairly quickly </p>

How do we decide if we want to keep working on a quilt? from Pat Sloan's Blog

Happy Cloud Quilt Batting by Fat Quarter Shop

Article continues below this Ad

I've been thinking about what I like to read about  and what I like to write about. I miss reading thoughtful articles at sites I follow. I miss writing them myself. We all tend to write short to the point. Because it takes longer to write an article that makes us think. And frankly, it takes you longer to read that article. Today I've got two things... One.. do you like reading an article with a bit more to it, not just photos & captions?

A few teaching opportunities. Learning about embroidery. Having a spouse who loves me deeply. One of the considerations … Continue reading 2018 Word of the Year

German Baby Quilt from Lovin' Life At The End Of The Dirt Road

It's been a long time since I had a finished quilt to share One of my co-workers is celebrating the arrival of a new granddaughter and as I think all babies should be welcomed into the world with a quilt, I began to sift through my stash. Her son-in-law is stationed overseas, in Germany, and I thought it would be fun to take my inspiration from Germany. I was born in Germany and this fabric

Bountiful Minis from the Portland Modern Quilt Guild from Art Gallery Fabrics-The Creative Blog

Hey there, makers!

 How’s everything? It’s insane how it’s already the ending of the year. Before 2017 comes to a close, I’m here to showcase three wonderful makers from a long overdue recap. At AGF we love partnering with quilt guilds and makers for different activities. So, from May to September we paired up with the Portland Modern Quilt Guild and our designer Sharon Holland to host the Bountiful Mini Quilt Challenge.

The participants were asked to create a “modern mini quilt” inspired by rustic elementsthat complement the homey and earthy feel of Bountiful fabrics ...

Finished Project! from I Have A Notion

So what do I do.... when... I am not cooking, cleaning, puppying or going to guilds? Creating of course. Most of my creations don't start on Monday and finish in a chronological fashion. They start, get sidelined by an obligation or other deadline... like the project I am going to talk about today. "The Night Circus" was inspired by a Facebook post made by a member of one of the Quilt Guilds I

Christmas Commission from Roxane Lessa Fine Textile Art

 

Please click on the title to read the full post.

Hi Everyone!

Welcome to the new readers!

The Christmas Commission is almost done! Let me catch you up. This week I put all the finishing touches on the painting, and completed the quilting.  OH and made my very own Charlie Brown Xmas tree with branches from the woods and lights.

I do love the lights this time of year, but Teeny would eat them if I made them readily accessible on a real tree indoors. Also, woe betide any ornaments and the tree itself would probably be knocked over. She ...
