REMEMBER THOSE BAGS??? from Kwilty Pleasures


I finally finished them this summer.  
Lots of fun gifts for some lucky recipients.
Most of these patterns are free!

Lined Drawstring Bag
Tutorial by Jeni Baker, In Color Order Blog


 Adorable Llamas


I couldn't pass on GNOME fabric.
This tutorial is by Noodlehead, Wide Open Pouch.


The front and back have different colors
and I switched the zipper out to turquoise.


The One Hour Basket is perfect for
these Llamas dressed in their Holiday Sweaters and scarves.


I did swap out the lining to a black and white.
Not sure why, maybe I misplaced the other option.


Another ...

TAKING A DIVE from Kwilty Pleasures

Second Sewcial Distance Sewing Pattern
with Kim Hensley is....COLOR DIVE 
a free pattern by Anna Marie Horner.

I had a lot of Alison Glass scraps that I received
last you via #getyourquiltywishgranted on Instagram.


This was my first Rainbow designed quilt.
All pieces are 5" squares with a few HST 
to transition from one color to the next.


I selected a fun all over Edge 2 Edge design
for Coleen to longarm quilt.
It's a good size also, 64" x 76"


This is Coleen...she's just awesome!


The backing is also Allison Glass and a 
bit of ...

THE PERRY COUNTY FLAMINGO from Kwilty Pleasures


September 2019 I was asked to do a trunk show for
The Perry County Sewcial Club.
A new quilt guild located in Perry County, OH

I knew the founding gals and said I would love to.
Being new and no budget, I offered to exchange my show
for fabrics.   If each person could bring me a scrap of
a pink or coral flower...I would make 
Laura Heine's Pinkerton Flamingo with those fabrics.

I received over 40 pieces of fabric!


The process begins by fusing and cutting all the fabric pieces
to be designed into the collage. 

I drew ...

A CHRISTMAS PLAIDISH QUILT from Kwilty Pleasures

2020 has been a year of confusion,
exhaustion, anger, frustration and
the drive for me to stay busy!

I have to create to keep my sanity!
I want to share with you a quilt that is a free pattern
from Erica Taylor Jackman aka @kitchentablequilting.

This pattern is Plaidish 2
and I have pulled a lot of Christmas fabrics...
well red, green and white fabrics.
Many are Christmas prints I pulled from
stash and scraps.


Here is a link to download
Plaidish 2 over on Erica's blog.
It seems more like a check than a plaid to me.
Should ...

MODERN CHRISTMAS TREE BLOCKS from Kwilty Pleasures

I have FINALLY finished a Christmas quilt top
 using the Modern Tree Blocks by Amy Smart.
 I made most of the blocks, 2 years ago.

I used Amy's free Tutorial over on her blog, 
Diary of a Quilter and 
you can see it here.
The tutorial offers directions for two sizes
of the blocks.  I made the bigger size.

Its sew easy and I love the wonky look of the
trees, cut them all the same, or different.
Stack two fabrics and slice, following her instructions.
I love wonky and different!



Then I put the blocks on the ...

FLAG QUILT from Kwilty Pleasures

Before July has slipped by...I wanted to share 
my finished Stars and Stripes quilt,
 pattern by Thimbleblossoms.

I started this in 2019, making the blocks at a quilt retreat.
It is quick and easy but it sat in a pile of  "to quilt" projects.
My friend, Coleen Rains, offered to quilt this one
'on the house' as she learned about how to use
 her new longarm machine.


We played with a wave design
and decided a long soft wave was perfect.
Like a flag, gently waving in the wind.


Binding was blue/white and perfect to frame this ...

SEWCIAL DISTANCE SEWING - PLAID-ISH from Kwilty Pleasures

I had just returned from Florida in April
 and Ohio was on a "safer at home" order.

Kim Hensley suggested, since we can't get
together and sew...let's "sewcial distance" and together
make a quilt!

I had seen this free pattern by Erica at Kitchen Table Quilting
called Plaid-ish....we both loved it and the fun began.
This picture is Erica's Plaid-ish quilt.

Plaid-ish Scrap Quilt Tutorial

We setup a schedule and checked each other at the
end of the week for our goal.

It was "scrappy" and we BOTH have lots of scraps.
We needed 3 color values...
Medium...Low ...

DRAGGING BAGS AROUND! from Kwilty Pleasures

I have a lot of bags ready to sew.
My feet hurt from dragging them around
instead of sewing them.

I pulled the fabrics over a year ago.
I cut them out, cut and ironed on interfacing or batting.
Made drawstrings or matched zippers.

And yet..2 months later, they are NOT finished.
Maybe they will be my "Christmas in July" 
sewing projects! 

The Gnomes and Fa-la-la-la-lamas
are on the table!
