My One Monthly Goal: Quilt Labels from Clever Chameleon

quilt pile needing quilt labels

Do you label your Quilts? And How!?

How dedicated are you to labelling your quilts? All of your quilts?!

Umm, in all honesty, unless there is an immediate need to do so, I often walk away at this step with a vague intention of “doing it later”. Unless the quilt is facing a show entry deadline, or is to be sold, or something similarly dire. Because there are soooooo many more fun tasks that need doing in my sewing room than adding quilt labels. Yet, I am the first to admit this is silly. I actually think it is rather ...

Looking Back and Looking Forward #4 from Quilting Nonnie

I want to say first thing that I'm very, very sorry, chagrined, guilt-ridden, and apologetic. Especially those in the northern parts of the USA, Russia, South Pole and lots of places around the world. However it exempts places like Australia, South America, and New Zealand.  Now that I think of it, I'm actually a friend, buddy and mate of those living south of the equator. Last week was a welcome break from winter here, especially after spending 9 days in Baltimore. Here in Santa Rosa, California, Northern California, and above-the-equator we had beautiful, wonderful, and astonishing weather. We ...

I have math skills! from Jan's Quilts

My quilt guild, the Temecula Valley MQG, has been collecting blocks to make charity quilts.  We've selected our recipient, Jacob's House, and we're excited!  BUT, we only have enough 12.5" blocks to make 5 lap size quilts, bummer.  I came across a photo on the Boulder MQG blog that gave me inspiration on how to "extend" our blocks to make more quilts.

Above is my version and if you want to make one, I've written a tutorial about how I did it, you can find it here.

May your bobbins always be full,

Another One With Tips And Tricks Part 2 Quarter Square Triangles from knot what it seams

might be on a bit of a triangle streak at the mo. So to go with last weeks post on Half Square Triangles I decided to carry on the theme and do another mini-tutorial on Quarter Square Triangles. I made some of these squares, which are easy as, then learnt what they called and went wow! That sounds complicated!

It’s really not. They are incredibly easy as you shall soon see. I had a charm square pack that I was using, so my squares started at 5″ and ended up as 4 1/4″ unfinished, 3 3/4 ...

Valentines Day quilts #2 from Amalie's Armfuls

As I was typing up my post about my best friends Valentines quilts, I started thinking about how we both purchase fabric at the same time that year.  I purchased a couple panels, a charm pack and a couple yards of fabric for backing and binding.  My panels also sat in a pile of unfinished projects for many years.  As I was pulling out my Valentines quilts this year to decorate, I was realizing that it is one of my largest collection of quilts.  Christmas, Fall, Halloween and the 4th of July certainly compare in the sheer volume of fabrics ...

My mom made one of these for me and took one as a door prize to my guild meeting. The lady that won it at the guild meeting asked for the pattern, but Mom didn't use a pattern. This weekend I made one and took pictures so I could write a little tutorial.

The one on the left is the one I made. The one on the right is the one my mom made. For the purposes of this tutorial I made mine a little smaller. You can easily adjust the pattern to add more (or less) clip strips ...

Since the theme is Valentines…. I of course thought of hearts.  which for this project, they could have totally been fine to add, but I decided to cut a few of them for a collection– and they make a flower.

I didn’t have quite enough time to get it quilted, but it ...

The One With Tips And Tricks Part 1 – Half Triangles from knot what it seams

Does anyone remember the Boundless fabric I bought ages and ages ago? Like, a year ago? Well, I finally made things with them! The quilt from last week was the 6″ jelly roll, and the rainbow charm squares are a triangle quilt that I have mixed feelings about so its been relegated to the ‘I shall deal with it later’ basket. But I knew just what I wanted to do with the green and blue charm squares. And I cut 84 squares in half to have 168 triangles.

It took a lot of time, just to let you know.

And ...
