Shine On Top Complete from Wedding Dress Blue

A quilt for my grandson and upcoming tutorial is now a complete flimsy.

DSC01352

You may recognize some of the same black and white fabrics used in my recent house quilt.

At 80″ square, it is tough to have enough room inside during the wet, snowy weather.  At night.

But you get the idea.

All Stars Quilt from The Cutting Table Quilt Blog - A Blog for Quilters by Quilters

All Stars Quilt

There’s a pretty big football game this week. Best of the season, they say. And while I do enjoy a touchdown or two, those yards of turf just can’t compare to a yard of brand new quilting fabric! So while those football stars are racing to the endzone, I’ll be stitchin’ up a team of my own all stars!

All Stars Quilt

The All Stars quilt is based on a design by Jenny’s cute husband, Ron. It’s a quick, modern pattern that makes use of two of our favorite precuts: 10 inch squares and 2.5 inch strips.

New Project (And Future Tutorial For You) from Wedding Dress Blue

It has been a while, probably too long, since I shared a new tutorial.  But, as part of the quilts I am making Number One Son and his family for their new house, I am creating this one.  No name yet, probably something like Shine On. Maybe.

Colors–yellow and black.

I have a similar idea running in red, blue and white vintage.

So much fabric, so little time…

Seeing Stars

Island Batik Ambassador September challenge has me star struck!  LOL

The blues of Alpine Ice and yellows of Dear William collections(provided by Island Batik) are featured in the mini star quilt.

Piecing perfect star was easy with Quilt In A Day’s Triangle in a Square .

The mini star quilt is perfect for featuring my new ruler quilting design.  I like seeing a design in different setting. Above, the same design is on a wholecloth quilt and my new star panel, Starburst.

A Star is Reborn, AgainHow many times do you make the same... from Living Water Quilter



A Star is Reborn, Again

How many times do you make the same quilt?  When I make the same quilt it is a way to demonstrate to how free-motion quilting can change the texture and appearance of a quilt. Certainly, fabric colors and prints have a voice in this process too.

The Radiant Star, pictured above is a HUGE departure from the first  Radiant Star, pictured below, in both fabric selection and free-motion quilting.

As an educator, I am compelled to offer a variety of inspirational options for students to explore in whole or part. The Radiant Star pattern is ...

Heritage Stars FINISHED! from Wedding Dress Blue

It was years in the planning, and quite a while in the making, but it is finally done.IMG_3480

It is based on the Heritage Stars pattern from McCall’s quilting 2012.IMG_3485

The color scheme rotates around the back, Husband’s home state favorite college football team.IMG_3486

And, the pillows match.IMG_3482

He was stunned.  In 20 years I have never made a quilt just for him.  I tried to include a few novelty fabrics here and there that have meaning in his life, like fish.IMG_3476

Overall, it is a success.  And Husband, that patient and long-suffering man, finally has a quilt ...

The Heritage Stars quilt is a top.  74″ square.

Hopefully will get it quilted in the next week or so.

Opinions wanted:  black binding?  or gold?

Blocks Complete from Wedding Dress Blue

All the blocks on Heritage Stars are done!

DSC01150

Yes, you are looking at my “design bed.”  But, there has to be a safe place for quilts to rest while they are works in progress.  It seems appropriate to give them a taste of their future lives.

Creating it left a number of “waste triangles” that I am making plans for–maybe a couple of pillows to match?DSC01149

Anyway, assembly and three borders next.

Catch a Falling Star from My Quilt Infatuation

Happy Monday (again), friends!  It seems to come around so quickly, doesn't it?  Well, since the weekend is over, we might as well start the week on a high note, with another quilt on the Stash Statement blog hop!  Shades of dark blue, purple, and gray depict the night sky in the Catch a Falling Star quilt.


When I set out to design quilts showing land, sea, and sky for this section of the book, I wanted to show a variety of backdrops in the quilts, and of course, I wanted to be able to use a wide variety ...

North Star Quilt from The Cutting Table Quilt Blog - A Blog for Quilters by Quilters

North Star Quilt

The North Star is fixed in the heavens directly about the North Pole. While every other star is on a perpetual journey across the sky, the North Star holds its place with perfection. Centuries before the advent of location technology, sailors, travelers, and escaped slaves depended on that steadfast star to guide the way.

North Star Quilt

This week’s new project is the North Star. Click HERE to fall in love with a quilt as timeless as the star itself!

Wish Upon A Star : Lucky Star Quilt is Finally A Finished Quilt from Sewing Under the Little Mushroom Cap

I haven’t been in a blog hop for quite some time already, and I thought it’d be fun to start joining again. Today is my turn for the WISH UPON A STAR Blog Hop, hosted by lovely Carol.

I love finding new blogs and connecting to other quilt bloggers around the world. Besides, I always think that blog hops is a great way for accountability to make sure I get something done!

And to prove that, I did get something done! This project has been an unfinished object (UFO) for so long, I am glad it is finally ...

Finished Star Quilt from Brown Bird Designs Quilts


This quilt has been a long time in the making. I first shared a tutorial on this quilt top in May 2016. After that, I created a quilt back on the fly. It was not planned out, I just improvised as I created it. I used fat quarters and scraps to make it. It was lot of fun. At one point, I went to my sister’s house to quilt a different quilt that I had to get finished (via longarm). I didn’t have time to quilt both quilts. Instead, I attached the star quilt to the longarm frame ...

Scrapbuster of a Scrap Quilt from Mulberry Patch Quilts

It’s the last challenge of the year (“Scraptastic”) for season 9 of Project Quilting, and if you’ve been following along you know I’ve entered every challenge this year so far. However, for this one I’m really in a time crunch. I think my real challenge will be to finish it in time! The entire quilted item must be started and completely finished (yup, quilted & bound) within one short week.

I’ve got bins and bins full of leftover fabric from years of sewing. Some are so old, I think they might be considered “vintage “…maybe you ...

The Rainbow Connection Update from Curlicue Creations

Here's the latest photo of my in progress hexie quilt, The Rainbow Connection.  I've been sewing along, slowly but steadily.  I need to stop and cut more hexies out of my scraps again.  That is my goal for today.  Do you like the progress?  I'm loving it.

The Rainbow Connection Hexagon Quilt Update from Curlicue Creations

It's been a while since my last update on The Rainbow Connection.  Here it is, laid out on my patio.  Funny how hard it is to hang a star shaped top up to get a photo.  That just wasn't working out.  As you can see, all the star arms are completed.  I'm filling in the corners with stripes of black and more rainbow.

Celebrate Countdown Part 3 from Ravelly1

Slept on what to do with this eagle. I added a light brown border then found some patriotic fabric in my stash to dress up the block. So far so good!!
However, my mind has gone in yet another direction. So that eagle is tabled for the moment. 

Here's the eagle I'm working on now.
The star design is one that I've use many times and is perfect for what I have in mind. I've use several shades of greens and golds on my HST and tone-on-tones.
I really like this eagle with its beak open ...
