Spotlight on Quilt Designer Katrina Thomas from If These Threads Could Talk

I wanted to help raise funds to support The New York Mills Historical Society (my hometown), so for me that means “Quilt Raffle”! I chose a pattern by fellow Studio 180 Design Certified Instructor (CI) Katrina Thomas.  I met Katrina last March at our CI Reunion.  This girl is on fire when it comes to quilt designing.  Katrina is one of the features in Fons & Porter’s “Scrap Quilts” magazine for Summer 2015 on news stands now.

Pat Sloan: Red, White and Blue Quilt Show from Pat Sloan's Blog

This is the first in my series of Quilt Show Posts with a color theme! On this memorial day weekend I want to honor all those that are serving and have served in our military.  My father-in-law that was in WWII and Korea, my great uncle, my friends, and those I don't know.

Garden Star Quilt and Pattern – Jack and the Beanstalk Rollout from Brown Bird Designs Quilts

Hi, thanks for stopping by! It’s May Rollout Month here at Brown Bird Designs, and today I’m featuring the second quilt (see the first quilt) using Jack and the Beanstalk fabric. This quilt is my favorite out of the three that I’ll be showcasing this month. I call it Garden Star, and it’s a one block wonder (like the Moda Love Quilt). Oh how I love them. The idea of one block quilting is simply mind-blowing, and I just had to design one for myself. This pattern calls for a charms and finishes 49″ x 49 ...

ARE YOU THIS PROLIFIC? from ATTIC WINDOW QUILT SHOP

Since I haven't been able to get to the Attic Window Quilt Shop for the past few days, Diana sent me some pictures.  Kathy (above) has been busy!  I love this umbrella quilt.
Kathy also made this stunning quilt.  I think it is from a Kim Diehl pattern.

A special thank you to Diana for sending these pictures.  I'm glad I got to see these quilts.

Baby Quilt Number Two from The Curious Quilter

Quilt for a baby girl

It does seem sometimes that things come in threes! Between our family and friends there are three babies incoming in a five-week period, so I have been busily making baby quilts.

This is baby quilt two, for the only girl in the crowd. The topper is made entirely from stash. I picked up the backing at JoAnn’s, came home and remembered that I had one fat quarter of the great Tula Pink squirrels. They were a great focal piece to tuck in on this very simple quilt. Aren’t the colors yummy?

Now We're Cooking! Farm Girl Vintage Sew Along from Thistle and Thicket Studio

 
 
It's week 3 of the Farm Girl Vintage Sew Along by Bee In My Bonnet & another couple of cute blocks! First one up is the Baking Day block. This was the perfect block for this week as it was cold & rainy here in Western Kansas (and most of the country, I think) & I love to bake when the weather is like that. I love my Baking Day block, it looks so good with my green dishes and kitchen utensils!

The Butter Churn block brought memories of my grandma making butter in her old hand crank butter churn. I remember ...

A house for every season from Mrs Moen

Last year, for our 25th anniversary, our guild issued a challenge. During the year each member would receive 4 pieces of fabric of which we were to make “something blue, something green, something yellow and something orange”. The quilts were to measure 50*50 cm (20” square) or several being stitched into that format.

As I was quite a bit obsessed with houses last year, it would hardly surprise anyone that I made houses. Although the challenge had no seasonal theme, the colours still worked – one colour for each season.

(Almost done)

The simple layout was born early in the ...

Voila! from Rana Quilts

Voila!
I am teaching a two-day class at Sew Portland (part 2 is this Saturday.) We are working on raw-edge fusible applique. I designed an easy baby size quilt to learn on.

Last Saturday we spent time choosing fabrics--each student had her own unique vision. Fabric shopping is so much fun! We could have spent the whole day playing with fabrics but eventually we got to work cutting and stitching the backgrounds and learning to use fusible web. The product we used in class is Steam-a-Seam II Lite. My personal favorite is an oldie but goodie, Wonder Under. I love ...

Four Down from ... Cat Patches

Yesterday, after eating my healthy breakfast of CSA goodies, I decided to test out my theory that I should be able to leap tall buildings with a single bound by heading out to the greenhouse. The greenhouse isn't particularly tall, and I didn't jump over it. However, I did negotiate the threshold nicely. That's gotta count for something, right?

When I got inside, I discovered the first flowers on the tomatoes. Furry little things, aren't they? And the tomatoes are growing like mad. 


I only just put them in larger pots a couple of weeks ago ...

parachute quilts from Crazy Mom Quilts

The parachute quilt has been finished for quite awhile now...but I wasn't sure if I was going to write a pattern for it or what to do with it. Turns out that Robert Kaufman is offering it as a free pattern on their website! It is made from a variety of strips from 5 different Kona Roll ups, but you could easily use solids from your stash. It was really fun to make!
The inspiration for this quilt came to me one evening while I was watching a TV show with my husband. (Over 3 years ago!) I ...

A Small Diversion from Quilt Obsession

I totally intended to stick with the grey and white Feathered Stars but then a new Inklingo collection was released yesterday. For tiny 3″ LeMoyne Stars. And I couldn’t resist.

100_0607wtmk

I have had this fabric in my stash for ages, but never quite knew what it was intended for. It has an odd repeat – 7.5″, to be exact.

So I looked and one of the suggested custom sizes for printing the diamonds of the wonderful tiny LeMoyne Star was exactly 7.5″. It was meant to be. So in a flash I had eight perfectly printed sheets of ...

Vexing Veggies from ... Cat Patches

It was so exciting to pick up my first CSA share yesterday. I've been following Working Hands Farm for about a year and a half. We signed up for a share last year, and then I canceled it the very next day because I thought we might be doing too much traveling. As it turns out, we could have probably managed a share, but whatever. If my crystal ball were a little more functional, I could plan better.

In any case, I was excited to sign up in 2015, and I've been waiting since January for the shares ...
