Start With the Foundation and Then I'll Work My Way Into the Details from Quilty Folk

I finally dove into applique prep like I've been threatening to do for weeks now. The brand new project, inspired by the fabulously creative Jane Ormes, was a dig-deep-and-see-how-seriously-you-want-to-do-this type of project. Jane had responded very kindly to my request, to try and interpret one of her prints into a quilt, which honestly kind of shocked me.

I figured it would be an 'Absolutely Not! How about a restraining order?', but no, she was very, very nice about it and even thanked me for asking! This particular print, 'Elephantjunglematissetypething!' might seem like an ...

Reverse Appliqué Unicorn Baby Quilt Tutorial from Art Gallery Fabrics-The Creative Blog

Decorating spaces is one of my favorite things to do, so my love for creating things though sewing helps me to bring these spaces to life. Today I wanted to share a great way to decorate a wall, crib, or floor in a nursery by making a Reverse Applique Unicorn Quilt! One of the girls in our production team introduced me to this technique a few years back and I have made a few pillows which came out pretty cute. I wanted to create something a bit larger so I thought a baby quilt would be a perfect project to ...

Quilt Block Surgery: How To Change The Center Patch WITHOUT Taking the Block Apart. Also, I Just Remembered I Love Embroidery. from Cheeky Cognoscenti

You guys -- I am so excited about my Jingle BOM quilt right now that I'm GIDDY!  Thanks to all of you who reached out and shared your opinions about the crooked tree block and my idea about embroidering dates on the front of this quilt.  I especially liked the idea of putting my initials on the front of the quilt somewhere -- MONOGRAM!!  As for the tree -- ironically, it was Frog Quilter who said that I should leave the tree the way it is (rather than frog stitching it) because it "shows character and makes the quilt uniquely yours."  When ...

A Stitch in Time blog tour from Wendy's Quilts and More

A few months ago my friend Sharon Burgess of Lilabelle Lane Creations asked if I'd be willing to take part in the blog tour for her new book - A Stitch in Time.

Sharon kindly helped me out when I was starting my la passacaglia quilt, so of course I said "Yes!".

Most of you know I prefer bright and bold over pretty and sweet, but I was determined to make something pretty and I even bought some dainty lace to make my chosen project from the book.

I simplified the Liberty Gift Bag pattern by skipping the English Paper ...

Artsy Chair Quilt Inspiration from Europe from Gefilte Quilt

Are chairs evil? That's the health buzz - sitting around all day is killing us. Maybe in 25 years everyone will work standing up, and  chairs will only reside in museums.

I love interesting chair design, and making an art quilt depicting chairs has been on my bucket list forever. (But buying a bucket chair has never been on any of my lists.)

So during our July week in France and Switzerland, I photographed chairs with quilt potential. We spent the first part of our trip in the Alps, where magnificent mountains dwarfed spidery lifts like this: 

They're so ...

A beast of a finish! from Celtic Thistle Stitches

Today I am hosting the TGIFF link party, so if you are new to the party welcome I hope you enjoy your visit.

My finish for the party has been a long time in the making, I blogged about it nearly a year ago here when the front was finished but then the project hit the proverbial brick wall. There is nothing like a looming deadline for a completed project to concentrate the mind though is there :)

I am always annoyed with myself when I finally getting around to finishing a project that I have been putting off for a ...

tree pillow and merry go round quilt from Charm About You

There's nothing quite as frightening as taking a pair of scissors to cut into something you've sewn! The results of doing reverse appliqué make that trepidation well worth it though.

This is the Tree Pillow, pattern from the book Sewing by Heart by Tone Finnanger, made for Sewing Quarter.

It's a lovely folk design, with birds and lots of curves; circles, flowers and leaves. I used two layers of cream cotton over the Sigrid Plum print from the Tilda Cottage Collection.

This meant the design only showed through the reverse appliqué areas that I cut away.  It ...
