Gossip Queen Texture and NTT from My Quilt Infatuation

Happy Needle and Thread Thursday, friends!  I am so excited to share my finished Gossip Queen quilt today, and I am completely smitten with it.  You can read more about the origin of the fun name HERE.

Y'all, it's hard to tell in the photos, but this quilt has texture for daaaays.  I used six different 50 wt. Aurifil threads, blending the thread colors through the quilt.  It is quilted with a dense spiral design with four side swoops as I did on some of my color gradient minis (check out my yellow mini to get a really ...

Woodwork from My Quilt Infatuation

Well friends, the sun finally came out and though the temps were frigid (for Tennessee anyway), I managed to get some photos of my latest quilt finish.

I love everything about this quilt.  The gray and green scraps play so nicely together, and the simple pattern allows them to really shine without the quilt becoming too busy.  Even though the greens are more prominent in the photos, in person, this quilt has an equal amount of gray that really soften it.  The solid strips are Kona Bone, and the creamy color keeps the quilt feeling more natural than a stark ...

Full Spectrum Medallion from My Quilt Infatuation

Yesterday, I spent a lovely day with the Friendship Quilters Guild in Athens, AL, which also has some members in the North Alabama chapter of the Modern Quilt Guild.  We had such a fun time!  I have just a couple of open dates before my 2019 schedule is completely full.  Contact me ASAP to set something up for your guild!

Before I headed out of town though, I made sure to finish my latest medallion quilt  just so I could add it to my trunk show.  My, oh my!  Quilting this was quite an undertaking.

When I say that it ...

Irresistible and NTT from My Quilt Infatuation

Happy Needle and Thread Thursday, y'all!  You know what I can't resist?  Sewing a rainbow.  And even more than that?  Sewing a scrappy rainbow.  That little peek that I showed last week has turned into this scrappy rainbow medallion quilt, and just looking at the goodness that has come from my scrap jars makes me happy!

If you're a regular around here, you probably already know that this quilt was made using the structured improvisation techniques from my book Stash Statement.  It is such a fun, versatile method, perfect for using up your precious scraps, and my ...

Fun in the Works and NTT from My Quilt Infatuation

Happy Needle and Thread Thursday, friends!  If you missed my chat with Pat Sloan on Monday, no worries!  You can listen HERE!  Pat was so much fun to talk to, and you definitely don't want to miss it.  This week, I've also been playing in my scraps.  It seems to be something that I can't stay away from for too long because I enjoy it so much.

This is just the start of something super fun, and I can't wait to get more of it finished.  Can you guess what it will be?

Before we get ...

Catch a Falling Star - Stash Statement from Quilting Is More Fun Than Housework

Hurray!  It is finally my day to share a quilt I made using Kelly's (from My Quilt Infatuation) Stash Statement book.  Because my date is so close to the first day of Summer and the 4th of July, I chose to make the quilt "Catch a Falling Star!"  I thought it would make the perfect picnic quilt.

So of course I chose red white and blues for my colors.  

The book does a great job explaining the beginning improv technique that is required to make the slabs.  Even if you don't have the (extensive) scraps like I have ...

Bloom Chicka Boom! from My Quilt Infatuation

Though of course I love each of the quilts in Stash Statement and enjoyed creating them, the blog hop is now entering my personal favorite section of the book, with four quilts that have Improv in the Background.  In this section, the improv piecing becomes a textured backdrop for the blocks, and the effect is really cool- almost like an impressionist painting.  The four quilts in the section show land, sea, sky, and a neutral.  With its lush blooms, representing land is the super cheerful and fun Bloom Chicka Boom quilt.

It's no secret that green is my favorite ...

Rainbow Scrappy Cushion from madebychrissied

Rainbow Scrappy Cushion by

Scattered from My Quilt Infatuation

Well friends, it's Monday again, and though that means the beginning of another week of the work grind, it also means another quilt on the Stash Statement blog hop!  This week, I'm highlighting the Scattered quilt, the final quilt in the Grab and Sew section of the book.

The movement of the improv piecing is so much fun, and you'll be shocked at how fast and easy it goes together.  When I made this quilt, I really questioned whether the Kona Navy background would look too harsh, but I am so glad I decided to stick with ...

Oh Scrap! : Scrappy Stars from Quilting Is More Fun Than Housework

In the states, this weekend is our Memorial Day holiday.  A time to remember all those who died while serving in our armed forces.  I thought it was the perfect time to be working on some patriotic red, white and blue scrappy stars for a project I have been working on.

These blocks are 9 and 12 inches - I think I have about 6 of each to make.

What about you?  Have you been playing with your scraps?


It is now your turn to share what you are making with scraps.  Here are the details for linking up:

Fire Pit Quilt {Stash Statement Blog Hop} from Little Bunny Quilts

I am so excited to share the quilt that I made as part of the blog hop to celebrate Kelly's book, Stash Statement!

If you are like me and have a lot of scraps in a lot of sizes, this is a fun book to help make something beautiful from the scraps that sometimes tend to linger in our boxes, bins, and baskets!

While a lot of the quilts in this book caught my eye, the quilt that I made from the book is called Fire Pit! Here's Kelly's original ...

Stash Statement Blog Hop - Fire Pit from Sew Preeti Quilts

 Welcome to my turn on the Stash Statement Blog Hop.  Here is my version of Fire Pit.

Finished Quilt
I was thrilled when Kelly asked me to be a part of the blog hop. That was the easy part. But it was tricky to pick just one because there are several pretty quilts in this book.

Finished Flimsy

I picked Fire Pit, because it is such a striking pattern. This pattern requires Tri-Rec rulers. I have had these rulers for a while but had not used them and this was the perfect opportunity.

Secondary Pattern - the Star

I will be sharing a quilt I am working on out of the book but you will have to wait until the end of June to see it.  Sorry! But above is a sneak peek to show you that I am working away on it!

Stash Statement Book Tour: Citrus Beach Retreat Quilt from Goer

Today is my stop on the Stash Statement Book Tour! I'm excited to be participating. I've long enjoyed Kelly's quilts on her blog and am thrilled to be helping to celebrate her first book! The book is filled with patterns to utilize your scraps with a little extra fabric. Kelly begins by walking you through her technique for creating a panel or chunk of fabric pieced from your scraps. From there, she has twelve patterns to utilize those panels.

I chose Beach Retreat, which you can find on page 26 of the book. The pattern is designed ...

Precarious from My Quilt Infatuation

Happy Monday, friends!  It's week three on the Stash Statement blog hop, and this week's quilt is one of my favorites from the book! (you know I can't resist a rainbow)  It's the Precarious quilt, and in addition to being colorful and happy, this one is also deceptively quick and easy to put together.

I love the look of the sky when a rainbow is set against dark, ominous clouds.  When the sun peeks out in one direction, but the sky is still gloomy in the other, it just feels magical.  The double rainbow in the ...

Louvered from My Quilt Infatuation

It's time for the second stop on the Stash Statement blog tour, and this week, it's all about the Louvered quilt.

With its more rustic colors, this quilt gives a nod to my Louisiana roots.  Brick red, mossy green, robin's egg blue, tan, and antique gold are common colors in French Quarter decor, and I designed this pattern to mimic the way light shines though the shutters that grace almost every building in the Big Easy.

The French Quarter is nothing if not lush, so I thought this quilt needed a quilting motif to fit the mood ...

Timeless and Lesstime from Sew Preeti Quilts

Some quilts are timeless, like the one in the picture below.  This apple core quilt is displayed in the Smithsonian Portrait Gallery.  Hand quilted with Baptist fans, it is definitely beautiful and impressive.

Display from the Portrait Gallery, Washington DC 

Someone must have used a cardboard template and a ball point pen to trace and cut each piece. That sure took a lot of time. The fact that it is displayed in a museum qualifies it as a timeless piece.

Of course, I was there!

I, on the other hand, make lesstime quilts. Here is the story of a lesstime ...
