2019 – Squares in Squares from Lotus Cove Quilting

Here’s a view of my design wall today. This project is using lots of fabrics from my stash. Only purchase so far was one yard for the center squares. The blocks should finish 12″ square, making a single-sized quilt.

Squares In Squares on Design Wall

Note on design walls: I used anti-pill fleece on this wall, wrapped over insulation panels. Fleece holds much better than flannel. Completed blocks would rarely stick to my old flannel wall unless I pinned them. No problem with the fleece.

Rainbow Nundle Dilly Bag Finish!! from Quilting through Rose-colored Trifocals!

I'm so pleased with my finished bag that I've already filled it with the next knitting project!!
I just have to finish the toe of the final Christmas sock and I can cast on this new cardigan for me!!
I showed you these rainbow bands of hexies last week on my way out the door to a weekend stitching retreat.  Many of the hexies were basted during the fall session of #100hexies100days2018 on Instagram with the intention of making myself Brigitte Giblin's Nundle Dilly Bag.
I made one for my knitting daughter and loved it so much ...

2018 – Ten Squared Plus Five from Lotus Cove Quilting

At last, the Rochester Modern Quilt Guild’s first show, “Taking Flight,” is over (September 29) and I’ve nearly recovered. It was a huge success; we had lots of visitors, lots of quilts, and lots of happy vendors. It was also a huge job creating a show out of whole cloth, a job I’m glad to pass along to another guild member.

social media slump from Charm About You

Charm About You Lucy Brennan instagram

I am feeling pretty fed up with instagram and social media generally. Sure it can be really fun and there's a fabulous supportive community of quilters but the fast pace and option of just hitting like ❤ isn't cutting it for me anymore. There are so many photos, so many great accounts and just so much to see. I don't feel as much joy though. Too much of a good thing?

Tired Teddy Labyrinth: Colour Inspiration Tuesday and Link Party from Clever Chameleon

Tired Teddy Rainbow colour scheme from Clever Chameleon

Better late than never, right? It’s a few days overdue, but my November Island Batik challenge quilt is finished.

The Chameleon is Back. In full Colour!

It is really nice to be presenting a rainbow quilt today – after two fun but black and white posts. I do truly love the drama of a good black and white quilt or the cuteness of a panda appliqué. But black and white is not my natural go to for a finished quilt, whereas the Island Batik Paisley Dots batik collection is totally within my comfort zone. 

What’s not to love about ...

The Rainbow Connection Update from Curlicue Creations

Here's the latest on The Rainbow Connection.  I'm still sewing away, slowly, but continuously.  Soon it will be one big hexagon.  I'm not sure where I'll go from there.  Should I finish it as a hexagon, or square it up?  Opinions?  Please leave a comment below.

Bright and colorful quilts just make me smile, so when Susan’s quilt walked in the door it really brightened my day!

Who doesn't love a rainbow quilt? Susan brought me this adorable Stack and Flip quilt in rainbow colors for some simple meander quilting. And when you have an awesome Millie 30 it's super easy to quilt!

The Color of Quilts from Quilted Joy

Besides stitching, there is real beauty in a quilt when you look at color and what fabrics were chosen to complete an effect. We have the pleasure of seeing all sorts of designs and color schemes from the artists that rent our machines.

Pink and Green Sampler

For Janet’s rental certification class, she brought in this beautiful pink quilt. I love the different shades of pink with green. And the pop of black just sets in so nicely. She completed it with a meander design board.

Disapperaing Pinwheel #5

Valerie created this blue green piece with a disappearing pinwheel pattern. The blocks are all uniformly oriented ...

Spray the rainbow from Ibisco Quilt

Oggi mi sono cimentata in alcune prove che intendevo fare da settimane, ovvero da quando mi sono arrivati i colori spray per tessuto della Marabu.
Visto che volevo testare anche l'intensità dei colori, li ho usati tutti, disposti secondo l'arcobaleno.
In precedenza ho tinto tessuti con i colori batik, ma ero rimasta insoddisfatta dal tono un po' spento dei colori e soprattutto dall'aspetto delle fibre del cotone dopo la tintura a caldo: sembrano quasi cotte, e il tessuto ne risulta rigido e difficilmente lavorabile con la tecnica hawaiiana. Poi ho provato i Soleil della Pebeo, ma la ...
