Pattern Sale! from Telling Stories Through the Needle's Eye

Everyone loves a sale, right?! Well, we are having one!

We are having a wonderful time teaching our Block of the Month quilt, In the Garden, at Primitive Homespuns Wool & Needleworks. We are about halfway through the second round, and these ladies are inspiring us with their choices and skills! Each month, we share our progress, and I (Teri) am amazed by their beautiful work. It is fun to watch them get ideas from each other, and I may be learning as much from some of them as they are from me. (And Kara, who got to come to the ...

Å leve from Iinas Sewing Machine Poetry

Det enkleste er som kjent ofte også det beste.
Når det gjelder dikt, så er jeg aller mest glad i de korteste og "enkleste" av dem. Slike dikt, der lyrikeren klarer å gi uttrykk for noe stort med ganske få, kompakte ord pleier også å være de som oftest treffer en nerve hos meg.

Arne Ruset sitt dikt "Å leve" er et slikt ett. Jeg leser mye håp og "lys i mørket" i disse få linjene.
At art quilten min ble absolutt ikke av det minimalistiske slaget er en annen sak. Jeg så og hørte for meg et litt vilt ...

French Roses from Polka Dots and Butterflies

The title of this quilt is "French Roses" by Heather French.  I bought this pattern about a decade ago and never did  anything with it.  Recently I was in a quilt shop and saw a sample of the quilt.  It sparked my interest in the pattern again.  I had also been asked to make a quilt for my sister's living room.  This pattern and my new designs ideas seemed the perfect match.
I also tried my hand at some new photo angles and using props to help set the scene.  Although not visible on the pictures I did some ...

Friendship Star Variation Table Runner from Magpie Quilts

I don't always follow a pattern when making my quilts. Usually I start with a few coordinating fabrics, in this case a beautiful rose print on a black background, a rose and a gold that coordinate with the rose print.
Deep rose table runner
First I make a few basic quilting units - some four patches and some half square triangles. Then I play with them on my design wall.

Long and Skinny?
My design wall is just a length of white flannel yardage that I pieced together and tacked to the wall near the ceiling. I love being able ...

Rose/storm class samples from Mrs Moen

Here are my samples for the mixed media Rose/storm class:

Warm colours 

One of the things that I particularly like about this class is that the overall look can easily be adjusted to the students’ colour preferences. The warm colour kit can for instance easily be made more hot pink or warm orange.

Cold colours


And the purple sample

And a few pictures from one of my classes

Long Island Road Trip from Telling Stories Through the Needle's Eye

A couple of weeks ago, I (Teri) went to Mineola on Long Island to visit the Evening Star Quilters. They had invited me to do a lecture at their meeting, followed by a class—this Eight-Pointed Star with Sprigs of Berries (above), from Elly Sienkiewicz's book, Spoken Without a Word. This was the very first block that I taught, so I was thrilled that they had chosen it; the star has such a simple elegance to it.

I asked my friend, Kristy, to join me for the road trip. Not only was she an invaluable help to me, organizing ...

"In the Garden"—Garden Gate from Telling Stories Through the Needle's Eye

Because of my trip to Europe in August, we took a hiatus from our Block of the Month, but we are back to finish this quilt! On Sunday, I (Teri) taught the class on our newest block, Garden Gate, at Primitive Homespuns Wool & Needleworks in Frederick, MD. As always, we had lots of fun as we reviewed the techniques used to create this block. And the shop has just moved into a larger building, so we enjoyed a bit more room in which to stitch! A happy respite from our rainy day. 

Following are a few highlights for creating the ...

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

Happy Valentine's Day! In the spirit of the holiday, we stitched a rose for our garden this month. Whether the red rose signifies love or warm, summer days for you, who doesn't enjoy the beauty of this perennial floral favorite?

While the rose is made with wool, the buds are created using wired ribbon, adding a different texture, and of course, a bit of fun! We also added beads around the bloom for a bit of sparkle—a hint of early morning sun shining of dew drops, perhaps. 

This new block in our In the Garden Block of ...

Lo, How a Rose E'er Blooming from Telling Stories Through the Needle's Eye

Lo, how a Rose e'er blooming from tender stem hath sprung!
Of Jesse's lineage coming, as men of old have sung.
It came, a floweret bright, amid the cold of winter,
When half spent was the night.

Isaiah 'twas foretold it, the Rose I have in mind;
Mary we behold it, the Virgin Mother kind.
To show God's love aright, she bore to us a Savior,
When half spent was the night.

The shepherds heard the story proclaimed by angels bright,
How Christ, the Lord of glory was born on earth this night.
To Bethlehem they sped ...

Charcoal Rose from Pebble Creek Arts

I decided to try a charcoal on canvas this time.

This is a 16″ x 20″ charcoal on stretched canvas. I really felt so much more free when drawing this. Because of the textured nature of the canvas, I could only get as detailed as the canvas allowed. I will continue to do more of these.

You can see the video of this one on my YouTube channel or on my videos page. Please give it a like!

Signing off for now. Happy Sunday!
