Project Quilting 9.3: Bold & Brave, Fabric Weaving Technique from Mulberry Patch Quilts

So for challenge #3 of this ninth season of Project Quilting we got the words “bold & brave”.

It was interesting to me that Kim had mentioned the new wefty needle process for weaving strips of fabric together. I’ve been wanting to try that technique, and now would be the perfect week to do it.

It’s something new, so I’ll be BRAVE by getting out of my comfort zone. And I’ll use some of my BOLD hand dyed fabrics in bright red, pink, with a bit of yellow throw in. And for the background, I’ll add ...

Hiding quilting thread ends from Luna Lovequilts

Earlier this week I had a discussion with an IG friend on how to hide threads when machine quilting. She thinks this topic could interest other people and suggested that I share my method. And this suggestion was very welcome since I haven't really significant progress to blog about this week :-)
I only pieced some extra blocks for my improv curves project and I am now joining them together.

Cette semaine, j'ai eu une discussion avec une amie Instagram à propos de comment arrêter les fils dans le cas du quilting machine. Elle pense que le sujet pourrait ...

How I choose a quilting design from Luna Lovequilts

For some projects I settle on the quilting design already during the assembly step. But if I have no particular plan I sketch a few designs before getting into the quilting. I took a few picture to show you my process.
Pour certains projets, je suis déjà fixée sur le design du quilting lors de l'étape d'assemblage. Mais si je n'ai pas d'idée particulière, je dessine quelques possibilités avant de me lancer dans le quilting. J'ai pris quelques photos pour vous montrer ma démarche.

How to baste a quilt - tutorial from Luna Lovequilts

I am back from a whole week of quilting retreat in South of France with my friend of Patchmania group. Unfortunately I can't share with you what I have been making during the week ... I worked on two secret projects I planned to submit to next year France Patchwork competition on the theme Modern Quilt. I managed to sew a first top and almost completely the second one. I'd have time to finish it but ... as it often happens to me ... I ran out of fabric ! If I wasn't so optimistic I would have admit even before ...

Solids and Cabbage from Quiltifications

It's not a healthy living hack of my blogger account, I promise.  There simply wasn't anything else to call this quilt!  Any suggestions for names will be taken seriously from my faithful readers.

I purchased two jelly rolls on clearance at a very nice little shop in Gainesville last year while on a quilting retreat.  Made some very quick strip blocks from them and zapped them together into a top.  I had to look around for a while, but I was CERTAIN there was a Kaffe Fassett fabric that would be perfect for the border.  :D found it ...
