My Home State from From the Strawberry Patch...

I loaded this panel onto Snowbird last week to do some bead board, straight-line, quilting. I decided to use the panel as is, it measures 19" X 44" and is perfect, without being bordered, as a table runner for our kitchen table. I had it quilted up in no time. One of the very best tips that I've ever heard is one that I learned from quiltdivajulie. She makes her bindings before she's quilted

Let's Do Some Ruler Work #7 from The Quilt Yarn

Just when I thought that I had to wait several months for the new machine, she arrived...the Handiquilter Capri machine!

Now, this was very exciting and I have not done a lot, other than playing and more playing. Had several rulers that were new to the collection and also a new foot for the machine that I had not yet tried. The machine has got stitch regulation, something I have never really tried before and yes, it is very different. Initially, this was completely weird and very unfamiliar, however after the first day, I did get a bit of ...

Hello friends! I just wanted to remind you that I have several Free Tutorials on my website. The projects are small, so they are easy to sew from your stash. Many of us turn to sewing when we are worried or need an escape, and I think all of us may be experiencing that right now! 

I hope you find a project on my Free Tutorials page that helps ease your burden in the coming days and weeks.  We’re all in this together!

Wishing you good health, much happiness and joy in your sewing!

Linen + Lawn Table Runner from Samelia's Mum

I have one last curvy project to share this week (month). It's been my mission to play around with curved piecing through February and it's not been 'all' bad.

I made a fun little table runner with some natural essex linen combined with some Japanese Lawn prints. I chose to go with these more autumnal colours -  in the hope that autumn isn't too far away.

WORKS IN PROGRESS from The Proficient Needle

I've been busy stitching, but since I've been working on several projects at the same time, I don't see the progress.


I started making the hourglass blocks for the next border on my granddaughter's Hallowe'en quilt, with many more needed.

I'll have to get my rotary cutter working overtime, as I need lots of these blocks!

The manager of our community in the south is off on maternity leave.  My quilt group suggested making a baby quilt for the new arrival.    I sat down with Electric Quilt 8, and designed a quick rail fence ...

OFF TO A GOOD START from The Proficient Needle

Since I still had my small collection of Christmas fabric on the cutting table, I hunted through my saved patterns, and decided to try the "Gather 'Round Runner" pattern from Iowa Star Quilts, that was part of their year of runners in 2006.

 The background fabric is a poinsettia print with silver highlights, and I used the remainder of the piece!  This will go in my collection of items for the boutique at my guild's next quilt show.

I soaked the beans for 15 bean soup last night, so this morning, I drained the soaking water, and added fresh ...

Reviewing 2019 from Romany Quilting

It’s always interesting looking back at what was achieved during the year.  My first finish for the year was not till March, I think we must have been busy tripping away in the caravan for some time early in the year.  I finally completed my long winded Animal ABC quilt, which had been hanging around for ages.  I had fun collecting animal print fabrics for this quilt, and pen friend Janet from Australia really helped me out when she printed out a picture of a Quokka to send me to use for the letter Q.  This one I’m ...

Flying Geese blocks featuring the Harvest Road collection from Carried Away Quilting


Hello quilting friends! I hope you all had a joyous holiday and are excited about the coming New Year. I’ve been thankful for a quiet December. Besides enjoying time with family, I worked on my 2020 calendar, read, wrote project lists and goals, and watched some favorite old movies. I also did a bit of sewing, which I’m sharing with you today.


I’m making a looooong runner of Flying Geese blocks that I intend to hang in my living room. I only have two of the eight 12” blocks completed, but the construction is easy peasy. I ...

Christmas Bells 7, 8 from Virtual Quilter

When we were growing up whoever was up first on Christmas Day, and old enough to use the gramophone, would play a record of Christmas carols starting with the sound of bells. I now have that record, and a record player, for use on Christmas morning.

Even if that plan failed I have backup copies on CD and USB, so no one will sleep in at this place. I will even make sure the battery operated USB player is fully charged in case of a backout!

The design above could be on a table, or a bed, or draped over ...

Jelly Glazed Hearts Tablerunner {Fat Quarter Shop Hop} from Little Bunny Quilts

Today I am participating in the Jelly Glazed Hearts tablerunner blog hop with the Fat Quarter Shop! Check out their post on the Jolly Jabber here!

For this project, I picked a mini jelly roll of the new Alma line from the Ruby Star Society and picked one of cream prints for the background fabric.


I picked out eight strips from the jelly roll for my blocks and paired them up.


Next came chopping my strip sets into the correct lengths for each block.


Then I made the heart blocks and added the setting triangles to each block.



This is ...

Christmas is Coming from Romany Quilting

It’s official – Christmas is coming, and in our part of the world, Summer has now arrived.  Together with the Silly Season too, and all the various Christmas break ups from the groups we are involved with.  Tomorrow we have two – a birthday/Christmas lunch out with one group of friends, then an evening dinner date with friends from our village.

DON'T FORGET THE SALE! from ATTIC WINDOW QUILT SHOP

We have snow!  That means it's time to sew.  I got busy and finished this table runner that I previously talked about here.
This is a closeup of one of the blocks.  It was a fun project, and felt good to get something finished.  I think I got some dopamine when I checked this one off!
Making that table runner was my first time making a log cabin block.  It was fun, but I think it will be more fun using foundation paper to make the block.  Come to Happy Scrappers on Wednesday, Nov. 13, and Chris will provide ...

What's on the Wall {and Floor} Today from Quilty Folk

Sometimes I don't even know where to start, how to walk you through to where my quilting is at this current moment. It's kinda a mess really, but hopefully more of a 'creative' mess than an ugly sort of mess that we'd all probably turn up our noses at. After getting two other projects up to completed quilt top stage, it seemed like a perfect time to dive head first into this U&U interpretation project.

The very beginning of the  Interpretation quilt
This fabric has been all stacked up and ready for play since August, but ...
