Millefiori Quilts 4 from Wendy's Quilts and More

I'm so excited! I now have a copy of Millefiori Quilts 4 by Willyne Hammerstein.




Millefiori Quilts 4 is Willyne's latest book for Quiltmania and it contains another 19 amazing quilt patterns.  

My Ballet with Kaffe quilt waiting to be hand quilted

As I've been good and finished the English Paper Piecing on my Ballet with Kaffe quilt from Book 2 (photo above), I rushed out and ordered some templates for two of the quilts in Book 4.  

I chose "Send Flowers to Your Loved Ones" and ordered the hand piecing acrylic templates for it.  Because as ...

Bursting My Buttons from Sew'n Wild Oaks Quilting Blog

Hello Everyone,
 
My buttons are bursting.....not from too much food over the Holidays.....but from the fact that I can finally tell you my Country Courthouse quilt is going to be featured in QuiltMania magazine this year!

I submitted a picture to the magazine last July, and I was notified in August that it was accepted for publication. 


The nerves set in immediately after acceptance, because I had to either have it quilted or do it myself.  I spoke with an award-winning professional quilter, Jill Schumacher, and she said this quilt should be completely stitched in the ditch ...

'Currant Pinwheels' in Simply Vintage! from Nestlings By Robin

Thank you all for sticking through

colors; red, orange, black.
 I really like the small loop design within the leaves.
This one was all done ...

Ballet with Kaffe revisited (and the Peacock Party) from Wendy's Quilts and More

My poor Ballet with Kaffe quilt has been neglected for months.  Some many other tempting things have come along this year, so I put this one away and haven't done anything on it since February.



However, Quiltmania have just started advertising Willyne Hammerstein's fourth book, Millefiori Quilts 4 and that has spurred me into action.




Of course I want the new book, and I probably want to make quilts from it, so I really need to finish my Ballet with Kaffe from book 2. I've worked on it every night this week with no distractions.  That's ...

Marshal Mystery Quilt (and the Peacock Party) from Wendy's Quilts and More

It's a long time since I've talked about the Marshal Mystery Quilt, designed by Jen Kingwell.  The final layout has just been revealed at Houston (as shown below) and in Quiltmania magazine, so it's a good time to revisit my blocks and think about how I will proceed.


At this stage I think I'm going to come up with a different layout.  I can't say that I'm in love with the final layout, and I haven't come this far to join my blocks in a way that I don't love.   I very ...
