Indie Makers Week from Quilter in Motion

Mayisformakers

Are you familiar with this?   Lindsey Rhodes came up with this way of getting we makers to focus on the independent pattern designers.  It’s so easy these days to find free patterns on the Internet and I confess to getting many of them myself.   However, independent pattern designers (who also might give away a free pattern now and then) depend on people purchasing their patterns directly from the designers.

I just recently purchased the Necessary Clutch pattern and got the free download which is so much faster than making a trip to a quilt shop in hopes they will ...

What If I Make a Mistake? from Inside Quilters Newsletter

When you make as many quilts as I do, there are bound to be mistakes. Some mistakes are little, some not so little.

Little mistakes are the ones that are easy to fix. They are the ones that require a little unsewing and restitching and all is well.

Bigger mistakes aren’t that simple.

This past week, I made a big mistake. I was making multiple units like this but not in the traditional way.

right What If I Make a Mistake?

This is what I was supposed to be making.

I wasn’t cutting half-square triangles and a square. I was sewing rectangles and squares together ...

Glorious Hexagons: 26, 27, 28, 29, and 30 from Hexy Lady

Here are the next five Glorious Hexagons.

#31 Jacqui

This Jacqui block inverts pairs of half hexagons to create the hexagon shapes. So it is really a modification of the Judy block. The two cuts I selected were very different in value. The outside diamonds were selected to blend with the darker hexagons. Notice that each diamond has a slight change in value from light to dark. The light point of each diamond was placed next to the lighter hexagon while the dark point of the diamond was placed next to the darker hexagon. This allowed the darker hexagons to ...

Design wall 5/2/16 Vintage shirting blocks complete from Always Quilts

My design wall this week has my finished top from the blog hop. It’s hard to believe that all 4 blocks are the same pattern. Each block looks so different just by changing the placement of the colors. You can find the tutorial to make my block here https://alwaysquilts.com/2016/04/22/vintage-shirting-blog-hop/ or go to Barb’s site http://barbsfavorites.com/its-blog-hop-time/ to find all the different blocks made from her line of vintage prints by Paintbrush Studio.

What I’m Working On… from Jo's Country Junction

image_pdfimage_print

Wednesday, Thursday and Friday hit me like a bus.  Honest.  I felt horrible.  It’s the worst I’ve felt in a long time…it was definitely the worst I’ve felt throughout my whole ordeal.  I thought I was ready for an upswing so it hit even harder.  Thankfully I had a few blog posts already in place because I was not well at all.  I ended up at the doctor twice over that time period.  More on all of that in tomorrow’s post.  Just know for now, I’m on the uptake.  Sunday I finally started feeling ...

Goodbye To My Beloved Max from Sew Grateful Quilts

All of a sudden we lost Max tonight. He was 13 and I could see him declining over the past year. Then suddenly tonight he was in terrible pain. 

He was a good companion, a friend.  It’s hard to imagine life without him.

Max is the miniature schnauzer on the left.


Beau will miss him too.

Quilty 365: Day 121 from Me 'n' Henry Lee

Although my main focus for this month has been my OMG 60-degree quilt project (see here), I’ve also been trying out a few new things with my circles, so April has been a month of discoveries and learning (not to mention a whole lot of fun!:) ).  Along the way there have been some good experiences, such as exciting finds of Kaffe Fassett fabric in my stash … and some not so good, such as a brain fade when I carefully – oh, so carefully – ironed the Wonder Under to the incorrect side of ten circles of African fabric which I had ...

It’s been a pretty busy month! I started getting ready for the Lake County Fair. I’m entering quite a few pieces!

Last week I made this baby quilt for a dear friend of mine, and I didn’t want to post it until after the baby shower. So, here it is!

I want make a larger version of this for my couch!

SAQA PK Talks Round ONE from Tales of a Stitcher

When I last left you dear readers, I had arrived in Philadelphia for the 2016 SAQA conference. Friday of the conference was a big day for me 24 SAQA members. For months, I had been organizing two dozen speakers. These speakers were divided into rounds of eight. Each spoke for 6 minutes and 40 seconds about the topic of their choosing while a slide related to their talk advanced at an even 20 second pace. These type of talks are called PechaKuchas, Lightening Talks, and Ignite. We called them PK’s.

I had participated in a talk session like this ...

Old Problem Revisited…and a live AUCTION starting NOW! from Jo's Country Junction

image_pdfimage_print

In January I wrote to you about a charity quilt donation that came in and how worried I was about how to correctly handle the donation.  After I wrote the post the quilt got put on the shelf in my sewing room and got left.  As I’ve been cleaning out things while I’ve been sick I decided it was time to make a decision about this quilt. Below is the original post.  Read through it and then see what you think of the conclusion I’ve come to…..

Here’s the original post.

It’s not a race…. from All Pressing Matters

Once I get in the sewing room and pick a project, and no one is needing me for anything, I just want to sew like crazy! 

Part of that comes from wanting to see the end result AS SOON AS POSSIBLE!  The other part comes from the fear that someone might decide they need me for something. 

Uninterrupted sewing days are hard to come by. If I can get an hour in every day, I think that’d be swell. But that doesn’t happen, so I cram as much as I can into whatever time I’ve got.
