Picked By Jen - Two-hand Casserole Pot Holder from Patterns by Jen

This Picked By Jen is from Hey Lets Make Stuff

You can find the pattern and tutorial here: The Easy-Sew Two-Handed Casserole Pot Holder.

This really is a quick and easy sew and makes a great gift. In fact this Picked By Jen came about because my husband requested some like his mom's. Since his birthday was yesterday I thought it would be the perfect time to whip it up.




The instructions are easy to follow, but definitely take the time to cut slowly. I was in a hurry and my cuts weren't exactly equal. I made my ...

Hello Jane Teacher Tote from Sew Incredibly Crazy

If you are looking for 
a fun little tote for a special teacher
or one for yourself, 
I made a little tutorial 
for Thermoweb showing you 
how to do it.  

I used these adorable fabrics
by Windham Fabrics.


They are a fun touch of vintage.
The fabric line is Hello Jane.

I decided to use the purple prints for this 
cutie with a touch of green. 
I quilted it with Aurifil #1243.


      I also used cork for the bottom of the tote.
It was the first time that I used this material for any project.
It is so fashion forward ...

Applique letters with fusible web --- "draw on the fabric" method from A Beautiful Day - O Zi Frumoasa


Letters applique is one of the easiest methods to create something from almost nothing in no time.
Placing a monogram, a meaningful word or a name on a pouch, pillow cover, or quilt is a creative and fast way to transform a common object into a special one. 

   

Usually, when using fusible web the main applique steps are these:

1. Print out the letters of the size that you like.
2. Reverse the printed sheets with letters and tape them on a window or light screen. You need to reverse the letter so it reads the correct way on the ...

Coney Island Pillow from Amy Made That

Hello, Friends!
If you're like me, you don't have a lot of free time

Ruler Anxiety from Lisa H Calle's Blog

If I’m repeating myself it’s because what I’m about to say may be a little important.

That being said, the #1 question I am asked is:

“What rulers should I start with since I don’t own a single one?”

 Answer to the most asked question:

Hands down, you MUST have a straight edge.  BUT, don’t waste your time or money purchasing the biggest one out there, bigger isn’t always better.   I suggest getting a ruler that fits comfortably in your hand, because let’s face it if you can’t maneuver the tool easily ...

Carry Case Tutorial for a Featherweight from Patchwork Posse

Long story short– I am a big yard sale shopper….however lately I haven’t been going….sad, I know.

Many, many years ago I picked up a Featherweight.  It got a little love at the first, but then I kind of just set it aside until I was reminded that I have one and need to use it at sewing retreats or days with friends.

I got it out, tinkered for a bit and it’s running very nicely now.  However– My carry box for my featherweight is a little worn. In fact.

The handle is a little on ...

Phliippians 4:4 Part 2. Patrick's Strength. Glue Basting Tutorial. Book Date. from Faith, Trust and Breast Cancer

Philippians 4:4 Part 2
Part 1
Scripture

















Application con't.
Yesterday we defined rejoice, joy and noted the section in red. Joy - and the ability to rejoice always - comes from God!  

I certainly could not have rejoiced through many of my challenges without Him!  I remember when we discussed 
joy and Philippians 2:11.  His joy is our strength.





To the best of our abilities,
let us not grieve
past hurts,
present challenges
or
future fears.  

Let us draw on God's joy 
so that we may be 
healed from past hurts,
strengthened to face present challenges
and 
have ...

marmalade quilt--the beginning from Crazy Mom Quilts

Last weekend I had the opportunity to retreat with some of my friends at our annual Gruber's retreat. I believe that this was year 8! I'm so thankful for good friends from all over the country who were brought together through the internet and our common love of quilting! We have expanded our retreat to a 5 day stretch--what a treat that is! It still goes too fast. :)
My main project for this retreat, other than my pincushion a day (of course!), was to work on this quilt! I opened up a much loved (and hoarded) layer cake ...
