Caught red-handed! from Crazy Quilter on a Bike!


The week is progressing quite nicely. I had two presentations yesterday, and both were almost ready, so they took no time to finish up. Just that switch-a-roo with the sewing machines and the language of the software. 

But all was good. I'm in CONTROL!! 

I prepped as much as I could for the three reveal presentations this weekend. I did a wee bit of writing and paperwork, although more needs to be done this morning. And I NEED to get to the long arm. 

I'm also a slacker, and well, I couldn't help myself. I could watch ...

Lange bereidingstijd! Met een dierbaar resultaat! from M. Brito de Campos


Sommige quilts hebben een lange aanloop en doorlopen verschillende stadia.
Verschillende stadia van ideeën, verschillende stadia van plannen, verschillende stadia van wanhoop, verschillende stadia van voltooiing, 
maar uiteindelijk ligt er een quilt.
Van deze quilt heb ik ontzettend veel geleerd.
Er zijn kleurenfamilies en de ene familie past niet zomaar bij de andere.
Met andere woorden: een leuke print in een vergrijsde goudkleur past niet bij de heldere primaire kleuren van mijn voorkeurspalet.
Blokken maken voor een quilt, zonder een plan werkt echt niet!
Applicaties maken is wel heel erg leuk. Tenminste als je heel veel verschillende technieken hebt uitgeprobeerd ...

Revisiting stickiness and stashes from Crazy Quilter on a Bike!


Oh my -- I just had a peek at my phone bill online. There's so much to see and do! I'm going to go back and have a better look later. It's always a good idea to check that bill regularly as the rate plans change. And while I'm more than 100% satisfied with my Samsung Galaxy S10, I will be able to look at a new phone at the end of August. Will I upgrade? Not sure - I'm going to check it out. 

A note that we are no longer buying (or renting) cell phones ...

Pandemic Porch Quilt Show, Days 54 - 55: Hands for Grandma, Grandma's Hands from Gefilte Quilt

On Day 55, I hung two baby-related quilts that date back to the 1990s - and the one on the right was inspired by a quilt 140 years older than that! 
First, a nap quilt I made for my son, when I'd done very little applique, and wanted to dip my toe in the water. The flowers are raw-edge appliqued, with zigzag stitches to contain the fraying. The leaves were straight-stitch machine-appliqued, so their edges are nicely frayed.
Amazingly, the flowers and even their hand-embroidered centers have held up well over the years.  

The second quilt was made from my ...

Charming Denim Quilt - tutorial from DaySpringQuilter

Have you ever made a denim quilt from castoff jeans from family members or thrift stores?  My hubby donated his jeans when he was done with them.  I inherited about 6 pair and promptly cut them down to bigger fabric pieces until I could decide what to do with them. Then about a year ago, I decided to do something with them.

I salvage everything usable and store the pockets in a bin for who knows what.  The rest is thrown away. 

I searched Pinterest for an idea. There were a lot of ideas and a lot of them don ...

Machine Applique from Quiltnotes All Blogs

Applique means "to apply" and applique in quilting means to apply one or more fabrics on top of the other. Apply the applique by machine or by hand. This article looks at two machine applique techniques: raw edge applique and turn under applique. The two most popular machine applique stitches are the zig zag stitch (also known as the satin stitch) and the buttonhole stitch (also known as the blanket stitch).

~ Home Again Progress and Tips ~ from Podunk Pretties

Hi Quilty Friends!  Today I'm taking a little break from quilting the Hunkering Down quilt to play a little game of catch up on the Home Again quilt by Erin Russek.

I'm 3 blocks behind but due to my lack of attention to detail I will need to redo/fix two of the blocks on the wall.  Color placement is an important part of any quilt.   It helps to visually balance or distract depending on the effect you're after.  Block design can also be a balancing effect.  Notice the symmetry in the blocks of this quilt.  Block ...

~ Home Again and Playing ~ from Podunk Pretties

Howdy Sweet Quilting Friends!  Today I'm doing what I do best, making a HUGE fun mess.  Pulling fabric is the best part of quilting, don't you think?  I'm digging deep into the stash to find my most loved pieces of out of print Lakehouse Drygoods fabrics.  Some of these I forgot I owned.  My original plan for this quilt was to work only from the scrap bins.  But there just isn't enough variety of prints and scale of prints.  I'll use what I can from the scrap bins then supplement with the larger pieces.  In ...

~ Christmas Joy by Just Let Me Quilt ~ from Podunk Pretties

HELLO Happy Quilters!  Friday at last!  How many of you are like me and planning a private quilting retreat in your sewing room?  I bet I'm not the only one with few Christmas sewing projects on the to-do list.  For me these are the best retreats.  I prepared for this 3 day quilting retreat by cooking ahead for Mr. Podunk.  If he doesn't want to eat Taco Soup leftovers all weekend there's frozen pizza and cold cuts in the fridge.   The only thing that could interrupt my pajama quilting retreat is unexpected company.  But to be honest ...
