My FREE 2020 Block of the Month Announcement! from Pat Sloan's Blog

Do you love to have fun sewing along with everyone? I do too!

Hiking just 2 weeks ago on Arthur’s Rock near Fort Collins, CO. Beautiful! Now it’s back to work designing more holiday patterns.

Red Truck with Presents

Hot off of my design table is the RED TRUCK WITH PRESENTS. This adorable little red truck pairs nicely with my LITTLE RED TRUCK block from last Christmas.

I love them together as potholders or pillows.

My friend Shelley used photos of her grand kids in the windows. Super cute!

My Gnome obsession is over the top. Here’s a GNOME WITH MUSHROOMS block pattern that makes an adorable pillow.

A Quilt Finish: Food Quilt from Jo's Country Junction

You might remember some time ago that Jean gave me a wonderful quilt kit.  I had first seen the quilt in Carla of Longarm Quilting Inspirations Facebook feed.  She often shows pictures of quilts she is working on.  At the time I had no idea whose quilt it was…only that I loved the idea.  How cute with all those food fabrics.

Later I volunteered to deliver some quilts Carla had machine quilted to Jean a blog reader, and now friend of mine, in Manchester Iowa while I was on my way to my daughter Kayla’s house. I drive ...

Waterfall Quilt Top from Goer

I was inspired after I finishing my last 6 blocks to continue and finish my Waterfall quilt top. I started by putting all the blocks up on the design wall. With this type of project a person could move blocks around for a long time, but I opted to stick with the initial layout and get to sewing. I made just one switch as I was trimming and sewing the blocks together.

I'm so happy with the colors in this project, all chosen from my shelves a year ago when I started the project. The beauty in this pattern ...

How to Make a Pillowcase with French Seams, No Raw Edges, No Serger Needed! from Quilt Addicts Anonymous

For our seventh Make of Christmas we are bringing back an oldie but a goodie. In this replay on how to make a pillowcase, I show you how to use your leftover yardage or novelty fabric to create a custom pillowcase with no raw edges.

That means we cover how to do a hot dog roll to get all of your raw edges concealed in the pillowcase sleeve, and how to make a French seam, which sounds way more complicated than it actually is, to give your pillowcase a finished look with no raw edges. No serger needed!

Two Quilts for Be a Santa to a Senior from Snowy Days Quilting

guy quilts

My local quilt guild is all about giving back to the community. Throughout the year, we have different local charities we support. When they announced that we would be making lap quilts for Be a Santa to a Senior, I immediately knew I wanted to join in.

I like quilts that use a good variety of fabrics, so I got to thinking. If I made two quilts, I could choose twice as many fabrics and still avoid being left with scraps! So I headed to my local quilt shop and chose 21 coordinating batiks. My only plan when I walked ...

Pre Christmas Preparations, Projects of Christmas Past from Canadian Needle Nana

Lots of dillydallying going on here this morning...and coming right on the heels of the lollygagging mentioned in the last post. We had snow again but rain has wiped it out...again. Such strange weather so far this winter.  Meanwhile  I'm lingering here at the computer just writing away which is not an awful thing as sometimes my blog/writing ideas come to me in spurts and I can get a number of ideas recorded to be fleshed out later.

The whole place needs a good scrub...two old people, two big dogs. Fridge needs some deep diving ...

A Rocking Duo from Liz Makes Crafts

When I think of rock stars in the quilting world, there are a lot of names that come to mind. But when I think of someone who literally has the aesthetic of a rock star, I think of no one but Libs Elliott. I absolutely adore her fabrics and her designs, full of skulls, glitter, and fun.

So one can imagine just how much I enjoyed making her Double Trouble pattern with her Greatest Hits Vol I collection. (The black / white fabrics are not from that collection, as I didn't have enough.) I love star quilts, and this one ...

Quilts Not Going to QuiltCon from Goer

I submitted three quilts to QuiltCon and all three will be staying home with me come February. I'm bummed to not be able to attend the show this year due to a variety of schedule conflicts on my end. Congratulations to everyone who will have quilts hanging in Austin and to everyone who put their work out there and submitted to the show.

Let Your Light So Shine — Santa Paper Piecing design process from Wisonsin Quilting

Paper piecing lets me make sure that the quilts I produce have personal meaning. I love this paper pieced Santa $9 pattern (makes a 15″ x 15″ square, or if you add a bit more background, a quilted lined bag) because it started long ago with a “mid-century” candlestick that my mom brought out during the Christmas season.

My designs start with a sketch, playing with light and angles.

The pattern comes as a PDF download for you to print: 4 pages for the Santa and 4 more pages to cover the straps and wider belly of the bag if ...

Odds and Ends from Becca's Crazy Projects

Sometimes I get a crazy idea to watch some YouTube videos and do something new. I sort of put that on its head with this one. I watched this video from Rachel's Rocks and instead of breaking out the paints I used the tutorial to draw this gnome. He isn't high art, but I made a thing. 
While piecing Star Storm, I made some little four-patches to fit in when I needed to piece the strips. 
And my current knitting project is going along quite nicely.

Have you tried something new?

Round Robin: 5th Round from Goer

Last month I returned the final quilt in my round robin with SCVQA guildmates back to its owner, but I forgot to share it on the blog. This is Suzanne’s garden quilt starting block. She included tons of fabric for us to use and the final round of the project was to add snowballs or log cabins. All I can tell you is that I chose snowballs. ;-)

The quilts are all back with their owners, but I haven't seen the finished tops/quilts yet. I look forward to sharing them with you when I do. You can see ...

Quilt Guild Rewards! from Nestlings By Robin

Do you belong to a quilt guild?
I know there are many complaints 
about guilds (cliques, not enough volunteers, etc),
but what about the positives??

I work from home and my only other
real human to talk to is my husband.
I adore my husband and he listens to all
my quilting whoas but not with the
same empathy and sympathy
that a fellow quilter hears them!
I can't expect him to:)

My biggest positive for being 
a member is all the HUGS!!
If you aren't a hugger, I am sorry!
You are missing out on a quintessential ...

Last Six Waterfall Blocks from Goer

A year ago I was in the middle of the Waterfall Quilt Along with Amy Ellis. Today, I found my pile of pieces for the last six blocks and took a break from studio organizing and tidying to sew them up! I look forward to getting all 30 sewn together.

I'm participating in the 31 Day Blog Writing Challenge with Cheryl of

The post Last Six Waterfall Blocks appeared first on Sarah Goer Quilts.

Finished Quilt: Rainbow Talkin' Turkey from Snowy Days Quilting

rainbow talkin turkey quilt

If you caught my last post about how I organize my quilt projects, you may have noticed that I’ve fallen pretty far behind in sharing my finishes here on the blog. I’m planning to remedy that over the next year, and I thought I’d start today with my rainbow Talkin’ Turkey quilt. The pattern is from Bonnie Hunter’s book String Fling.

I started this quilt at a fantastic workshop with Bonnie. I was going to guess the workshop was in 2017, but my blog shows it was actually 2016! It’s crazy how time flies. If ...

Slowly, but surely from Quilting and More...

Several weeks ago, I posted a bit of progress on my current quilt project. I’d love to say that getting ready for the Christmas season is the reason I haven’t gotten any further, but that wouldn’t be true. At least, it would only be partially true.
