Project Quilting Season 12.1-I am rising... from Sew Sunshine


"Like a phoenix"
30" x 32"
Accuquilt die cut triangles
Diamond straight line quilting
My own design

Project Quilting has started again. New year, new one week challenge. The first challenge is based off the Patone color(s) of the year Illuminating (yellow) and Ultimate Gray.



Those colors felt sort of opposite to me for some reason. I felt the doom of the gray and the light of the yellow and the first thing I thought of was rising from the ashes ...like a phoenix.  Got out pater and pencils and decided equilateral triangles were the answer.  With my limitations ...

Progress in a restful day................... from Exuberant Color


I had a back up of things to press so I only got 8 of the fabrics for the 16 patch blocks pressed and sewn into 4 strip sets.



Some of the fabrics to press were light fabrics to continue my TV sewing project.  Then I cut 40 triangles and sewed the pairs.  I now have sewn enough for 17 twelve inch blocks and I will need at least 20 or 24 blocks.

On today's line up: pressing the rest of the fabrics for 16 patch blocks and cutting the strips.  Hopefully they will get sewn tonight.  Also cutting ...

I got ROYAL mail.............. from Exuberant Color


I feel so special!  I got Royal Mail!  My friend Lesley from the UK sent me this Christmas card on the 12/14 and I got it 2 days ago.  She has sent me many postcards from her travels around the UK too.  I visited my daughter's family when they lived over there so I know a little bit about the country but Lesley has filled me in on so much more of the history.



Back to playing with blocks.  I decided to try an on point setting because I have never used that with a 16 patch before ...

Die cutting day................. from Exuberant Color

I am setting aside one day each week for just clean up and cutting.  I had a lot of Marcia Derse scraps already cut into 2" finished triangles so I decided to gather all of the rest of the MD scraps and cut all of the smaller pieces into more triangles.  Last night I sorted them into piles of like fabric.  I'm not sure if I'll sew them into squares yet or wait until I have a firm idea of their use.  I have found that some of the lighter colors of Grunge fabric look nice with the ...

geesey geesey >> from Charm About You

 


This Autumn I had the pleasure of joining Rachel of Stitched in Color for the Geesey Geesey Sew-Along. Her Geesey Quilt pattern is a brilliant exploration of colour and I spent quite a while debating what sort of look to create and what fabrics to use. Over time I have been collecting black and white prints and ultimately thought it would be an interesting choice for the pattern.


Thinking about what to pair it with, my inner 80's child was screaming PASTELS! Thankfully I had quite a few of those too. My first inclination was to use the pastel ...

Still cutting and sewing those triangle squares............. from Exuberant Color


 This is last night's batch of pieces for the Bear Paw blocks.  Some of the stacks have as many as 12 pieces alike and others as few as 2 alike. 16 per block so I'm probably going to need a few more.  I was so happy to see my regular TV shows are on again.  Tuesday night is a 3 hour session so I can get lots of sewing done.






However I didn't get any more rectangles or corner squares cut so I didn't sew any more blocks.  I just had to lay out as many ...

Cutting and sewing parts............ from Exuberant Color

I pulled some yardage to cut more triangles for the Bear Paw blocks.  I have all of my parts sitting on top of a plastic lid.






I had to decide whether to sew the 2 blocks that were ready or sew more triangles into squares.  I decided to do the triangles and this pile is enough for 4 1/2 blocks.




After I sewed the triangles I laid out one of the blocks to sew today.  I hope to sew at least 2 blocks and if it is a good day, maybe 4 blocks.







The red cactus is blooming.  The ...

Therapy sewing......... from Exuberant Color


I had a Comcast person coming yesterday to switch out my modem and my TV boxes and to check my lead in cable so I spent the morning vacuuming and dusting around all 4 TVs.  He showed up right at 1 p.m. with a predicted time of 1-3 p.m.  Now I have HD, voice controlled remotes, a tightened connection where the cable comes into the house and a new plan that fits my income.  It only took 1 hour 10 minutes on the phone with them Monday to work out a plan that had what I needed and ...

new basket from Making A Lather


I found this little beauty at suzies scraps here. I really like her blog for inspiration. I used her ideas for a broken dishes block hereand her tile block here.
I was really excited to find another way to use the quirky "trash" triangles I have in a box. and it is so cute. It is also another great way to use older scraps that are not nearly as modern. Although, all fabric trends repeat over time.


I put them together like a 9 patch. Right now, I have a bunch of 2 1/2 inch squares cut in ...

Sewing Is Happening In Moderation from The Snarky Quilter

Like many of you, more time on my hands hasn’t translated into more artistic work done. For one, I decided it was time to  learn how to collage. I know, I know, how hard can it be to cut up … Continue reading

triangles from Making A Lather

I have been digging through scraps to find triangles for wonky stars and shoofly. I found this bag of triangles, and, decided to sort through it, and, decide if they were worth keeping. Silly thought, I think every piece of fabric is worth keeping, that is why my sewing room is always a mess. These triangles were left overs from quilt wild and goosey.


I discovered that most of the triangles are at least 4 1/2 inches with some 3 1/3 inch, and a few 2 1/2 inch. I don't recognize the fabric from anything I ...

Triangle Tuesday from From the Strawberry Patch...

I'm a sucker for alliteration-- that's why "Triangle Tuesday" sounded so appealing. Yep, I've been stitching up tons and tons of triangles! These triangles are actually composed from squares. Squares marked and chain-stitched into an endless train that will eventually be cut apart into a mountain of half-square-triangles. These are small, the smaller the unit the higher the chances for error --

Star quilt from Fabric Engineer

My mother-in-law "needed" a quick turn around on this quilt.  She had made a girl's quilt, not knowing the gender, and then the baby ended up being a boy.


I put loops in the grey and random triangles in the colored section.  Nothing too special, but with different colors and different quilting motifs it comes out special.
