window zippered pouches from Charm About You


Back with another Aurifil Artisan project! This month I was sent some gorgeous Free Spirit fabrics to play with, along with a spool of 50 weight thread. I received two cuts of the stunning Little Fluffy Clouds in Cloud, Daydreamer by Tula Pink and a deep purple solid (which I think might be Tula Pink Solids in Tanzanite?!). The Daydreamer collection has some really stunning prints, including one called Lucy! 


The Little Fluffy Clouds print is a beautiful ombre, from yellow to green to blue - you get a better sense of it in this picture from the Free Spirit website ...

The Other Things from Quilt Paint Create

The Guild fabric sale a couple weekends ago had more to offer than just fabric. I had a few other purchases I never got around to posting.

I picked up a set of CrabApple Hill angel patterns. They were kitted with fabric, although I don’t know that I will use it with these patterns. Sneaky fabric, hiding in the patterns.

I also picked up a floss caddy with very little floss and a selection of ribbon.

There is more wired ribbon than anything, but a good amount of the ribbon is silk. What floss there is looks like mostly ...

titivations

I have been creating little embellishments, small pieces of embroidery and patchwork using paper and cloth.
Having a collection of these pieces to hand is essential when I create a new artist book. They fill pages, they are extra adornment

Get Well Soon and Love Messages in a Quilt from Pieced Brain

Get Well Soon and Love Messages in a Quilt

Send Get Well Soon and Love Messages in a Quilt: this beautiful free project honors those going through ovarian cancer. Say “I mean it” with a quilt!

Inspiration Quilt #1 for Blank Quilting.

People, I just finished classes and can finally write again on this blog! Phew! And, although this fabric collection (Inspiration by Blank Quilting) won’t be available until September, I must write about this now as I have a dear friend who could use the messages I hid into this quilt design: “Get Well Soon” and “Love”. There is so much we want to say, but I ...

"In the Garden" Again: Rose from Telling Stories Through the Needle's Eye

Both Kara and I (Teri) have June birthdays, so it is no surprise that we enjoy creating roses. You will see them in many of our designs—in fabric, ribbon, and embroidery. And thus, we knew we would dedicate a block In the Garden to our June flower, the Rose. We layered the petals and accentuated them with stitching and a sprinkle of beaded dewdrops. As you'll see, there are other ways to interpret the pattern. How will your rose bloom?


We love when stitchers make the patterns their own:
one student shared her dimensional rose, created with a ...

Award Quilt Block from Expect Moore

This month’s free quilt block theme is graduation. One of my favorite things about graduation was always the awards that were given out – highest score, most improved, achievements, athletics, and more. So I designed this award ribbon quilt block. You can use the negative space to the left of the ribbon to include the […]

life is short you're capable from Charm About You

Life is short You're Capable hand embroidered on decorative pillow with tassels in the corners of the pillow and loose ribbon and thread spool next to it

I made a thing! The original plan was for this to be a pincushion but I like it too much to stick pins in it, so it's a decorative little pillow. I like just having it around, a nice reminder and message to myself.

I designed this embroidery pattern as a companion to my You're Capable cushion/mini quilt pattern, which was inspired by Gwen Stefani lyrics and created to give empowerment.

Life is short You're Capable embroidered on dot fabric with needle and thread still there and needle resting on a stork needle minder

It was a quick stitch, using couching with double strands and a single stand, and 3 strands for the back stitch with Aurifloss in # ???. It was ...

Wee Billow Bag from Charm About You


I have long been a fan of Sweet Cinnamon Roses and her pattern the Wee Billow Bag is utterly fabulous! It was the most fun choosing fabrics and making something for myself with all the brown and florals and leopard - all beautiful Anna Maria Horner prints. Recently I have been USING my favourite fabrics and it's really lovely to be able to see them all around me rather than stored away in a cupboard or basket. Especially for every day items like this bag, it's happy inducing. Mine is a pouch version but you can see Laura's ...
