Planetary Future Depends on Sewing Political Pillows, Bags, etc. from Gefilte Quilt

I get anxious around election time, mainly because I feel that the planet is at stake. This year, I support the reality-based candidate, but worry that the other guy is gaining. To ease the fear, my friends and I usually do some phone banking, and some candidate crafts.

Artisanal politics are a whole lot more fun than any other kind, and we donate all the profits to our candidates's campaigns. In 2012 we raised close to $600!

This election season, the Democrats are blessed with a logo that is, like the candidate, brilliant and pragmatic, with secretive details. It ...

It Starts With Four Little Squares… from Quilting, Piece by Piece

miniraffle

I am on the Raffle Quilt Design committee this year for my Guild. We have decided on a very simple quilt design with plenty of room for our members to use their creativity.

Every other block is intended to be a 9″ star with a dark blue background. Our members will choose which stars they want to make.

To tie the whole thing together, we have cut the fabric for the Single Irish Chain blocks (the blocks that go between the stars.)

Unlike in the mockup, we are using a slightly different Irish Chain block, and since I have to ...

Hi, I am happy to finally be able to share the tutorial I have written for a quilt I made from my Harvest Berry Baskets block that I designed for the 2016 Cloud 9 New Block Blog Hop. I fully intended to share it last week but my computer was struck by lightning and the motherboard was fried. It has been a rough week trying to find some way back online and if we could save our data from our hard drives. All my quilt pattern pdf files were on that computer and most I never had printed out a ...

New Friday Tutorial: The Missouri Crossroads Quilt Tutorial from The Cutting Table Quilt Blog - A Blog for Quilters by Quilters

A crossroads is the meeting of four roads. It brings to mind some lovely deep thoughts about life choices and such, doesn’t it? (I’m a sucker for a good metaphor!) I can look back through the years and see how various decisions have changed the course of life forever: Who to marry. (Luckily, I chose well) What career to pursue. (When you love what you do, it never feels like work!) Whether to wash the laundry or spend the afternoon in the sewing room. (Always choose the sewing room!)

Applique and a Glue Stick from Quilt Doodle Doodles...

I have a new favorite product that I use for applique and it has been so helpful as I work on my Dear Jane quilt. It's a handy dandy glue stick that I picked up from Missouri Star Company.

Double Sided Fabric Quilt Tutorial from Patchwork Posse

This quick tutorial will show you how to use your double sided fabric by folding over the edges — a single fold hem or binding — to make a double sided quilt.

I ended up with a small piece of faux leather, which had this fuzzy fake fur on one side and faux leather on the other.  After thinking for a bit….I mean how in the world do you finish that?! I decided that a single fold hem would work perfectly.

I picked the fuzzy to fold over on top of the faux leather.  Looks great and because the edges don ...

How to quickly (and easily!) remove paint from old hardware using items in your kitchen! from Sew at Home Mummy



Want to know an easier way to remove paint from door and window hardware (than soaking your hardware for hours in a crockpot?) Great step-by-step - even better before and after pictures! WOW! Her 60 year old hardware looks like NEW!

As many of my readers whom also follow me on Instagram may already know, I've been in the midst of a summer-long kitchen 'reno' (and I say 'reno' because I'm using the term loosely - I'm pretty much just putting lipstick on a pig - the kitchen needs a full gut but financially that likely won't happen for another decade, so, I'm doing my best to make it prettier...).

Part of the reno has been repairing and painting the cabinets and windows. They are all original to the 1959 build. 

The hardware on my original wood-framed windows ...

No, this is an adorable fox pot holder that would be adorable to have for when you go camping or up north to the cabin. It would be a sweet hostess gift for ...
