10 Quilted Hot Pad Tutorials – Free Patterns from Patchwork Posse

Quilted hot pads are great for making when you want to refresh your kitchen or whip up a quick gift. Hot pads are perfect for using up scraps of fabric or trying a new technique on a smaller scale.

I love incorporating lots of options with a variety of hot pad styles for example: hook loops, hand pockets, large casserole size, unique shapes, and interesting trims.

Quilted Jacket Sew Along – Creating the Patchwork from From My Carolina Home

This week we get started. For those who missed the previous posts, this sew along began with a trip to Macy’s and the discovery that quilted patchwork was back in style. See my post Quilted Jackets Return to Fashion. Then, the McCalls Quilting September October 2022 issue featured Quilted Coats! That issue is available for your Kindle reader or print version. We talked about doing the sew along in Quilty Chat, and the comments were positive. So, it seemed a sew along would be fun. Here is the timeline:
Week 1 – choose pattern, create fabric – today, August 2

This month we are sewing up the next blocks for the Dutch Garden Block of the Month inside my quilting community. More info on that here.

A Bit of Sewing Time from From My Carolina Home

I finally had a day to spend in the sewing room, and I made some headway on the jacket project. One thing I had to do was to buy two yards of fabric. I didn’t have enough of the pretty blue, purple and black fabrics to make the whole jacket. Looking around my local shops, nothing went well with them. The black is a deep, rich black, and the other black fabrics just didn’t have that depth. So, on to the internet, and I found one yard at two spots, and bought both. I want to be able ...

Quilted Jacket Sew Along – Selecting a Pattern from From My Carolina Home

For our Quilted Jacket sew along, the first thing that needs to happen is selection of a pattern. So many future decisions depend on the jacket style, so let’s talk about patterns this week, and we’ll get started with the sew along next week. Full disclosure here, I am not an expert on jacket sewing. I’ve made several but it has been many years, so I am going off memory and the books I still have. If you have more experience, please feel free to add your tips to pattern selection in the comments. Also, the patterns ...

A bit of this and that from From My Carolina Home

I did manage to get a bit of sewing time this week to make a couple of sunglasses cases. My Sweet Babboo had taken me shopping for some extra pairs of sunglasses to keep in the cars. He doesn’t want to have to turn around every time I forget the ones I usually have with me, LOL! But of course, that meant I needed cases for the new ones, and I color coded them to the car colors. The red case goes in the MINI. They came in handy last night, as we did a huge MINI event. More ...
