Trial Run from Tim Quilts

A few years ago I made this quilt.

2012_0124aqs-tree-of-life0010

Since then I have had the idea of making a whole cloth quilt of Teddy.      Here is the picture I will base it on.

Before I buy fabric and get going hand quilting I decided to do a test run using the treadle machine.    It will help me to work out the details better than just drawing it.   I am using  fabric I had on hand and wool batting.    It is about 44″x36″  here is the start.

It won’t be anything great but it will help me to design the ...

Valentine Quilts from The Quilting Queen Blog

Do you have Valentine Quilts.  I only have a few but I'm working on making more.  Since Valentine's Day is tomorrow, I thought I'd share what I do have.

I made this one a couple of years ago when I was teaching an applique class in Brownwood Texas and in Nevada, Missouri.


I also made this one for a blog hop 2 years ago.  You can read about it here.


I have these 2 Valentine quilts that are made from a pattern I designed called Hearts Desire.  You can get the pattern for them here.

I can't wait to see your blocks as we start this project. There is a lot of fun new techniques to learn, and first might be working with small shapes and small blocks. During the last 8 months that we have been preparing for this launch, I have learned a lot myself!  

One is GREAT tools are ...

I'm a good starter! from Frayed Edge

My biggest downfall with my sewing and quilting and crafting is that I'm always very good at starting things, but not so good at finishing!  
I've been trying to stick with this project so it doesn't linger unfinished forever and ever.  I started it last summer, following Sue Daley's sew-along and this is as far as I've gone.  Her finished piece is much larger, lots more ambitious than I'm feeling, so I might just end mine without all of the graduated rows surrounding the center star.  This is all handwork, and not quick to ...

Quilty 365: Week 6 (and other things) from Me 'n' Henry Lee

Quilty 365I’ve had a bit of fun with some of this week’s circles :)

I love laying out all the blocks I’ve made so far – difficult to imagine what it’ll look like once I get all 366 done!  And as for trying to figure out how I’m going to sew them together – will it be three 4-month quilts, four 3-month quilts, two 6-month quilts, or one whole year’s quilt??  Yikes!  That would be one humongous quilt – and how the heck would I quilt it on my domestic machine??!  Think I’ll put those concerns away for ...

Busy Day in the Kitchen from Patchwork Times by Judy Laquidara

Vince is still home sick. I’m sorry he feels so bad, I’m sorry I gave him whatever I had and I’m truly not complaining, but today has been super busy for me. Vince did muster the energy to open a bottle of juice that I couldn’t open so it’s a good thing he was home. I […]

flowering from Charm About You


I finished my third and final appliqué block for my green tea and sweet beans quilt. 


The flowers were English Paper Pieced using Mini Hex Den papers and then hand appliquéd.


I didn't really like the appliqué flowers in the green tea and sweet beans pattern book so I decided to make my own and used three different epp shapes:


It is just over a year since I finished the first one and nearly as long since the second one! I knew it would be a long project!


I love seeing these blocks together and it's making me ...

micro geese mini quilt from Crazy Mom Quilts

Welcome to finish it up Friday!

Well, I already claim to be crazy, so showing you this shouldn't hurt my reputation at all, right?

These are left over scraps from the handles of the mini coffee cup quilt that I am working on. Most people would throw these scraps away.....and that is great! It's the sane thing to do. However, I had a feeling that they had potential. I trimmed the corners at a 45 degree angle, which produced instant fusible micro geese!
I had a lot of fun playing with different arrangements, but settled on this ...

One more wall section from Field Trips in Fiber

Feb 11 quilt block mosaic

I didn't have to leave town until after lunch yesterday so I had time to finish off one more wall section and get this post scheduled. Working around this pipe is a pain. The designs have to be off center or narrow so that they aren't totally hidden by the pipe. For this one I decided to start with that 2" metal square tile in the middle and build one of my favorite quilt blocks off of it. For the background I had a pile of this gold from someone's failed project at Vis Arts. It was ...

New Friday Tutorial: The Sashed Half Hexagon Quilt from The Cutting Table Quilt Blog - A Blog for Quilters by Quilters

sashed half hexi pinnable-2

I love the way a simple sashing gives each block its own importance. Those little strips of fabric are pretty powerful! But sashing isn’t just for framing blocks; they’re so much more versatile than that! Today we’re adding strips of sashing to half hexies in a classic hexagon braid pattern to create a block as beautiful as a stained glass window!

Jenny Sashed Half Hexagon Quilt

Something so simple as a sashing creates a completely new look to the familiar Friendship Braid Pattern and this beautiful quilt features Victory Findlay Wolfe’s new fabric line, Mostly Manor! Isn’t it fabulous?

Quilts for sale from Tim Quilts

I make a lot of quilts.   I have lost count of how many I have made since I started in 2006 but I have plans for many many more.  I have decided that it is time to let go of some to make room (and money) for more. I get sort of attached to them after putting all the hours of work into them but  I have listed several for sale on my Etsy site.      I have priced them far below what I really should.    If I were to add up the cost of materials and add the hours of ...

Setting Sun quilt from Sew French

Not a great day for taking pictures. As hard as I tried, I couldn’t get the vibrancy, of my Setting Sun quilt, to shine. We, in Michigan, are in the gray days of winter. A flip-flop of a real sunset because … Continue reading
