Scrappy Hats QAL Day 7 from Quilt Doodle Doodles

Welcome to Day 7!

For todays block we will make a striped hat brim. It reminds me of a candy cane stripe and peppermint. I love stripes so this hat brim is one of my favorites. It won't take very long to make, I would allow a half an hour to complete today's block. I used a red and then the same white background fabric that I used for my pinwheel block. But you can pull any colors you want for your striped hat brim. Have fun with it! So go and grab a little snack to stash ...

Scrappy Hats QAL Day 6 from Quilt Doodle Doodles

Welcome to Day 6!

Today we will work on snowman hat brim #5, Pinwheels. Again mix up the colors so that you are not repeating any of the fabrics in this block. This block will take a little longer to complete, I'm guessing a half an hour or so... Pinwheels are one of my favorite blocks to put together. Like yesterday, we will do the same easy technique to complete the triangle blocks. Each pinwheel uses four triangle blocks. We will make three pinwheels for the snowman's hat brim. For my background fabric I pulled a white print ...

Today we will work on snowman hat brim #4, Scrappy Triangles. Again mix up the colors so that you are not repeating any of the fabrics in this block. This block won't take very long to make. 15 minutes or so, that can be easily fit into a day. My mom tries to sew a little bit every day. It's amazing how much you can get done in a week when you sew just a little bit each day.  If you are a beginner quilter, today's block uses an easy technique to create a triangle block. So ...

Courthouse Steps from High Road Quilter


I am cleaning up for a family gathering and still cleaning my sewing room as a part of 15 minutes to stitch.


This means that the room where I sew has to be returned to living room / dining room status. The dining table had some fabric strings on it, and instead of finding an appropriate box and an appropriate place to put the box, I thought it might be better to just turn them into blocks.    Bonnie Hunter's  crooked courthouse steps quilt tutorial came at exactly the right time. That's my story and I am sticking to it ...

WHERE DID SUMMER GO? from The Proficient Needle

This has been the shortest summer on record, for us.  I think it was just because we have been extra busy this year.  Our 4 1/2 yr old grandson spent 3 weeks with us, and his whole family visited for another week.  We also made many trips to visit the family, as we wanted to spend as much time with our granddaughter as we could.  She just celebrated her 1st birthday last week, and is settling well into daycare.  Her big brother started Jr. Kindergarten in September, and is enjoying his new adventure.  DH and his friend entertained 31 ...

Shades of Summer from Stitchin' Therapy

  We took a quick trip to NC this week to have a day visit with Sir Old Man's cousin.  A wonderful visit and lunch and some slightly cooler temps there.  Di and I talked quilts and machines, and the guys talked.....who know what they talked about.  It was fun. 

   That day motivated me to come back and  finish my last quilt.  It only needed the binding and label attached.   Label was simple and printed on June Taylor fusible fabric.  Leftover floral fabric added for the frame and turned under before stitching to the back.   Before you ask.....yes ...

September begins.... from Stitchin' Therapy

Image may contain: plant, sky, cloud, tree, outdoor and natureI am starting the month with 2 finishes from August.    Oops, not quite  true.  Ok, I am starting at zero and here are two finishes from August.  I am blaming my fuzzy head to the nice weather.

    It has been a beautiful few days.  We rode up to the Mountains on Thursday and went to the apple orchard.  Justus Orchard is a great spot for that.  I love seeing the new trees loaded with apples.  And the car smelled so good on the drive back.  My labor tomorrow will be making a batch of apple bread.



 This small quilt is ...

Tails and Bindings from Stitchin' Therapy

  Yes, yes, I am still here......just been very quiet and struggling with the pain and heat.  Over the weekend, I pulled out tops, batting, and backing fabric for three things.  The two smaller ones have been hanging around for a while and will be donated.

   I uncovered Hot Legs, my Tiara mid-arm.  What a machine!  It has been sitting for at least two months and fired up and stitched just perfectly.    I only had to barely touch the tension when I changed thread cones. 

  Gentle swirls with tails for the quilting on this one.  The pattern is Crossroads from ...

Last Hurrah: How Did I Do That? from Wedding Dress Blue

TUTORIAL (Sort of):  Last Hurrah Quilt

48″ x 70″

Many of you have kindly asked how I do a quilt like Last Hurrah that I shared with you last week.  If you look closely, it is not strip pieced.  Yep, all single blocks.  But, don’t let that scare you off.  It isn’t that bad.

DSC01628

Here we go!

  1. Color Scheme–I wanted something sort of like a rainbow, but not a rainbow.  You can pick anything, really.  If you are relatively new to scrap quilting, you might find the backing fabric FIRST and then pick colors to go with ...

Farmhouse Quilt Top from Fret Not Yourself

I forgot to take process photos this week but managed to get the top together. The split Ohio Stars alternate with some easy Log Cabins. Their strong light and dark sides make the furrows highly visible. The log cabin blocks sewed up quickly and the quilt went together like a snap. What a relief after futzing with those split Ohio Stars.

I'd like to consider it done but a narrow border might be better.

SCRAP BUSTING from That's Sew Kerry

No Scrap Left Behind




This is something I actually started quite a while ago, the center or main body of the quilt is a simple Jelly Roll quilt but is a very effective and rather quick way to rustle up a fairly decent sized quilt in a couple of hours.

You will need a full Jelly Roll, unroll it and layout all the pairs of colours/prints so you can easily see what you've got to work with. Then sew every strip end to end so you have one extremely long, continuous length of fabric measuring 2.5" wide ...
