Meadowland from {The Sweetest Dreams}

This quilt pattern is a phenomenon. Social media went crazy last year with images of fabric pulls and finished quilt tops in all sizes. A quilt along with the pattern designer, Meghan Buchanan of Then Came June generated thousands of photos on Instagram. 

The second annual Meadowland QAL will be starting February 3 and will run for 6 weeks. I’m joining in this year. Here are two fabric pulls, one will be a baby quilt for a friend’s grandchild and the other an anniversary gift for my daughter and son in law.

I couldn’t wait to test ...

Tribute Star Quilt from Mama Spark's World

I *finally* finished the hand stitching on the binding of the Tribute Star quilt.  It turned out so well!   The pattern, Tribute Star, is a free Denyse Schmidt Pattern. I used Tula Pink's Monkey Wrench fabric for the front and her  108" wide coordinating print for the back.   Seriously, the feel of this fabric was amazing!   The aqua color is just stunning in person too. My

Tula Pink Dress for my Niece from Goer

Today we celebrated Christmas early with my sister and her kids, so I can show you the dress I made for my niece! She turned 1 last month.

I chose nine Tula prints from my collection, built around the Acacia Raccoon in blueberry print. Some, but not all, of the other Tula prints are from the Acacia collection.

The pattern is Jewel's Stripwork Dress by CKC which I made in size 2T. This works for her now (as soon as she starts walking, really), but leaves room to grow.

We had a great time doing the mini photo shoot ...

Kerstballen in soorten! from M. Brito de Campos

Het maken van de quilt met kerstballen schiet niet erg op, 
aangezien er eerst heel veel moet worden gesneden.
Maar uiteindelijk zijn alle onderdelen klaar.
Het is een paper piecing patroon, 
maar dit onderdeel vind ik echt veel gemakkelijker om zo te naaien.
Nu alle onderdelen per bal bijenkaar liggen, 
kan het naaien beginnen.
Ik ben het een beetje ontwend, 
maar met de briefkaart en de add-a-1/4 liniaal erbij 
gaat het al snel heel goed.
Ik ben ook anderszins met balletjes bezig.
Ik zag een patroon met ingebreide gekleurde balletjes 
en dat vind ik zo leuk, dat ik het ...

English Paper Pieced Table Topper from Gefilte Quilt

Here's a colorful table topper, made with a wild range of fabrics - some have been in my stash for 20+ years, and some are hot new Kaffe, Westminster and Tula Pink prints. It's 23" across the center.

It's English Paper Pieced (EPP), with the help of acrylic templates from Sewing By Sarah. One example from the 12 piece set:
(Full disclosure - I was paid a lump sum for the design and directions for this tabletopper. Sewing by Sarah also distributes my free guide to EPP, which you can download here. I do NOT receive a percentage of ...

Going Against the Grind with Tula Pink’s New Collection from The Cutting Table Quilt Blog - A Blog for Quilters by Quilters

Have you ever heard the saying, “Don’t throw a monkey wrench into the machine.” The phrase is about industrial-sabotage, meaning to prevent a process from going smoothly by deliberately trying to ruin it. Horrible, right?

Set your quilt planners, color coordinators, and simple prints aside. Tula Pink’s latest collection, Monkey Wrench, will be the perfect storm you didn’t know you needed! Check it out ...

Grieving with Gratitude - Finale from Cheryl Lynch Quilts

This is my last post under the title of Grieving with Gratitude.  I'll still blog occasionally, but sometimes it's time to move on.  This topic has been cathartic for me to be able to share my feelings.  Don't get me wrong.  I'm still grieving and  I am still grateful. 

When Don passed away, I received many, many cards in the mail and many, many e-mails with expressions of support, love and sympathy.  I appreciated every single one of them.
I treasured every one and still do.  I have kept them in a pile on my kitchen ...

Fortunate Impromptu Shop Hop from Bonnie's Girl

Since Wednesday I have managed to visit 5 different quilt shops without leaving the state, participating in a planned shop hop, or even traveling on a bus tour.  Wednesday, I traveled from my little town to nearby Hannibal, Missouri--yes, Mark Twain's hometown--and spent a few minutes in both of the quilt stores in historic downtown.  Both Bits and Pieces and The Hickory Stick are nestled in the midst of the Mark Twain Museum and surrounding shops and carry a fine array of the best fabrics and patterns.

 Last night, a friend and I went to the northwest corner of ...

November Accomplishments from Sew Patched Up

And just like that, November is gone. Well, it actually left last week but that’s ok. So, how was November you ask? (even if you didn’t ask, I’m telling…lol) It was great! I didn’t get as much done as I … Continue reading
