Two Quilts for Two Sisters: warming the heart with hearts and chains from Nita Dances

Dear Vi,

Last spring I made two quilts that I haven’t shown you yet, and since it’s getting close to the end of the year, and considering these are the only quilts I finished in 2017, I thought maybe I should get their pictures posted!.

The quilts were made for two adult sisters in my family.

I wanted the two quilts to share common elements while also speaking to the personal tastes of each sister, so I chose a versatile pattern: the Irish Chain with hearts.

The first quilt is made with sweet floral fabrics for a soft ...

DIY Gegen den Novemberblues - Hirschkissen from Quiltmanufaktur

Dorthe von Lalala Patchwork hat mich zu meiner großen Freude auch dieses Jahr wieder gefragt, ob ich Lust hätte, etwas zu DIY gegen den Novemberblues beizutragen. In den beiden letzten Jahren hatte ich den Swoonstar Miniquilt und die Streifenkissen nach Paul Smith zu diesem tollen Blog Hop beigesteuert. Also klar habe ich Lust! Das Motto alleine reizt schon, sich was schönes, kuschliges auszudenken, um die grauen und trüben Gedanken hinwegzufegen!

Habt ihr schon die schönen Beiträge verfolgt, die seit Anfang November bei diesem Blog Hop präsentiert wurden? Wenn nicht, dann könnt ihr die Liste mit den Links am Ende dieses ...

MQG Quilt of the Month – September 2017! from Flying Parrot Quilts

I’ve made another science quilt (shocking, I know!), and this one is the Modern Quilt Guild’s September Quilt of the Month, meaning members can download the pattern from the community site! I’m so excited to share the quilt and just a little bit about the science with you.

Molecular Test quilt by Sylvia Schaefer, inspired by gel electrophoresis/Flying Parrot Quilts |

This quilt is called Molecular Test because it is based on a test called “gel electrophoresis” (pronounced “e-lec-tro-FOR-ee-sys”). Scientists use this method to separate molecules (typically, proteins or DNA fragments) by size. Basically, the samples are placed in a gel medium and an electric current is applied, which causes ...

Diamond Trail takes on a festive, winter look with Nordic Stitches from Carried Away Quilting

Hello quilting friends!  Two weeks ago I shared some photos of a lovely Norwegian collection I received from Fort Worth Fabric Studio:  Nordic Stitches by Wenche Wolff Hatling for Moda Fabrics. Today, I’m delighted to show you the table runner I made and announce that Fort Worth Fabric Studio is offering kits for this project! 

You may recognize this runner pattern.  It’s called Diamond Trail, and I just released it last month using another Moda collection, Sundrops by Corey Yoder. This charm pack pattern is so versatile and is definitely a top you can accomplish in a weekend ...

Nesting - What's Old is New Again from A Quilting Jewel

Wow, I'm not sure I ever thought I'd finish this quilt. I made the top what seems like ages ago, but was really about 5-6 years ago. I used some very precious Tula Pink Nest fabric (3 charm squares) to make the top, which is a modified version of a Weeks Ringle/Bill Kerr pattern that I thought would be good to showcase the charm packs and the fabric without having to cut into them. 

I ended up just quilting straight lines across the quilt about 1/2" to 3/4" apart. I didn't measure how far ...
