Piecing And Joining Diamond Rows [Tute] from madebychrissied

Piecing and Joining Diamond Rows Tute by www.madebyChrissieD.com

Joining diamonds isn't as straight forward as joining squares.  It sure looks like it should be easy, those straight lines and angled corners line up perfectly ready to sew a 1/4" seam but that's not the case at all.  Let me show you what happens when you sew them together this way and then I'll show you how to line them up so they DO join perfectly.

Ribbon Dance Quilt Tutorial from The Cutting Table Quilt Blog - A Blog for Quilters by Quilters

Another two for one tutorial!

The next Summer Olympics will take place in 2020. If I start practicing now, I might be ready to compete in my favorite event: ribbon dancing! All I need is a sparkly costume and 20 feet of satin ribbon. Oh, and a bit of superhuman strength & agility. (A girl can dream, right?)

Jenny found another way to show off some HST!

This week, we’re working on The Ribbon Dance Quilt. Click HERE to see how easy it is to create the look of a beautiful, twirling ribbon. This one is gold-medal worthy for sure!

Here is the diagram for Jenny's Ribbon Dance Quilt.

A Going-to-College Tee Shirt Quilt, with Tee Shirt Batting Tutorial from Gefilte Quilt

Finished in December: A tee-shirt quilt for my college freshman daughter. It's only one semester late!
One of my favorite shirts, because it so sums her up:
And below is the lovely going-to-college tee shirt quilt for my now-23-year-old college graduate son:
Yeah, I haven't made it yet, My son did a lot of sports. Sports bring a tower of tees. He's now in grad school, and probably doesn't realize that he's still waiting for that quilt, which, if I ever make it, may double as a termite tent.

On the other hand, my younger ...

Square on Point Quilt Tutorial from Patchwork Posse

This past Christmas I had decided to use the flannel layer cakes that I had picked up last year at Spring Quilt Market.
They were super yummy and such a great deal.
Looking at the packs and trying to keep it simple I decided I only wanted to use the layer cakes + the quilt backing.
That’s it.
No border.
No sashing.
Simple and quick.
However, I couldn’t just sew the blocks straight across and together (I could, but did want to make them a little bit funner).
So- I made a few different quilts, all starting with the ...

Creative Quilt Displays from Podunk Pretties

 With each passing day spring is getting closer. We've really no reason to complain here in Podunk.  Our winter has been very mild with about 4 inches of snow all season.  The temperatures have been just as mild rarely getting below freezing.  The only thing we've had to endure is mud, gray cloudy days and the lack of happy colors in our landscape.  Unless you consider multiple shades of brown to be happy colors.  In order to beat the winter blahs I try to keep things light and colorful in the studio.  The last couple of weeks have ...

I Spy Quilt Block Video Tutorial from Patchwork Posse

The I spy quilt block (also referred to as the eye spy quilt block) is really a quick and simple quilt block.  It’s one that I’ve used a few times.

It’s a very forgiving quilt block as the points are lost in the process….not because you sewed them wrong!

The fun thing about the quilt block is that your conversation or spy fabric is going to be in the center of the block and will be surrounded by your background.  When you sew your blocks together, the centers will be on point- giving your quilt even ...

Replacing Worn Quilt Blocks [Technique] from madebychrissied


Remember this quilt?  I made it way back in 2013 for my husband - who had been complaining for some time that I hadn't made him a quilt when "even the dog's got two".  So I finally made him his own quilt using his 100% cotton shirts and some linen shirts and trousers.

Tutorial: Strawberry Thief Hearts Quilt from Craft Gossip

The hearts in this quilt show off to perfection The Strawberry Thief fabric collection. The blog by the same name shares detailed instructions on how to make the blocks. The heart shape is pieced, not appliqued, and I have to say, it’s a straightforward easy-to-construct method. All that to say, don’t shy away if you’re a beginner.

Also, they do offer a kit that would include only Strawberry Thief fabrics. And as a Liberty of London lover, particularly this collection, this is a marvelous idea, if you can afford it. If not, no worries. Make a dive ...

Infinity Scarf from Lily Patch Quilts

I am still working on using up my small yarn stash. I have one ball of this pretty purple variegated yarn from Deborah Norville. I was going to knit a long scarf but I couldn't find anymore of this yarn at the store so I turned it into an infinity scarf. It was just the right length for it. 


 

This type of stitching is called the Seafoam stitch and works up really quick. At first it looks like a mess because of all of yarn overs that I had to drop but I just kept on knitting away and ...

Sometimes I am in the mood for improv quarter circles as I did for my Déconstruction quilt.
Parfois j'ai envie de quart de cercles improvisés comme je l'ai fait dans mon quilt Déconstruction.

Luna Lovequilts - Improv quarter circle

But depending on the style I want for my quilt design I choose to make accurate quarter circles. There are a few techniques to sew quarter circles. Machine or hand piecing as well as machine or hand appliqué. The best technique for me is the hand appliqué using freezer paper. I used it for my 66° Nord quilt and I have at the moment some ...
