Girl Scouts Rule from Lost Quilt Come Home Page

Christie Eckardt is searching for her “Girl Scouts Rule” quilt. It was last seen during December 2016 in the British Club in Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates. She had it at a quilters meeting and it was either already gone when she left, or it was accidentally left under the table and went missing afterwards. The Club had nothing in their lost and found department.

This quilt is about 48″ by 60″. The main colors are white, green, and pink. Printed Girl Scouts fabrics are used. This top is machine pieced, machine appliquéd and machine quilted. This quilt had just ...

May Mini of the Month from Butterfly Threads



It's finally here! The mini quilt for the month of May. I started the mini of  the month idea a couple of years ago and never got around to making a few of the months, so here is my attempt to fill in the remaining months. The other quilts and pattern links can be found HERE.


While this is not technically a mini quilt, but rather just a small one, I call it "Mini of the Month" because that sounds better than "Little Quilt of the Month". And it's my blog so I get to take liberties like ...

Big Block Tree of Life from Gray Barn Designs

Several years ago, “oldest” sister asked me to make a Tree of Life wall hanging for her.  The cover of a book written by Nancy Johnson-Srebro titled “Big-Block Quilts by Magic” captured her interest and a helpful quilt shop owner worked with her on fabric choices.

I remember thinking one of the fabrics for the leaves was “slightly” less than beautiful.  BUT after sewing everything together, it actually became one of my favorites.  Smaller pieces can bring beauty…lesson learned!

This was one of my first attempts at machine quilting.  She requested minimal quilting so I did a “stitch in ...

Modern Geometric Kaleidoscope Quilt from Quilt in Piece

The new pattern is now ready! Modern Geometric Kaleidoscope Quilt. There are so many modern quilts out there that I love so much and it inspired me to design one of my own. Plus I love the look of geometric quilts, they look so crisp and clean. And so Modern Geometric Kaleidoscope Quilt is now all finished. This is an easy paper pieced pattern, that went together super fast, the quilting actually a lot longer to do than it took me to make the quilt top. For my quilt I decided on varying shades of orange and a white background ...

Viele Schmetterlinge aus Stoff, genäht und gefaltet from I like to Quiltblog

gegen schlechtes Wetter an Ostern ....
Die Blöcke waren ja schon ewig lange genäht,
Dank Katrin die uns damals im Zuge des Hasenbach Challenges
  jeden Monat anspornte einen Block zu nähen.
Endgültig fertig gestellt im vergangenen Sommer, 
und jetzt ist die richtige Zeit sie zu zeigen.

Die Muster sind von Claudia Hasenbach, im Original sind sie 6x6"
ich habe meine auf 8x8" vergrößert weil sie mir so besser gefallen.
In Reihen zusammengenäht und damit man sich auch die 
Namen der Schmetterlinge merken kann, habe ich sie da unter gestickt.
 
 Neulich entdeckte ich diese Origami Schmetterlinge in einer Zeitschrift,
die Anleitung ist ...

Tiki Beads Finish from Pink Doxies



Tiki Beads

This wall hanging laid in a pile with several others for many months. This is typical for me. The main design takes a lot of energy, and then I'm reluctant to put on the last touches. In my opinion, the binding can make or break the whole project. Sure, we can pick something that's just okay--middle-of-the-road choices happen to a lot of quilts, but a good one is harder to pick. Sometimes it is worth the wait. What do you think?




I used at least 4 colors of No. 8 Perle cotton for hand quilting, and ...

Winter Welcome Wall-hanging from Romany Quilting

Another week – another finish, it seems that I’m on a roll.   This pattern was a gift from my quilty pen friend Carol, a small project which consisted of a stitchery block, a log cabin block, and two small applique blocks.  I added some simple embroidery to the applique blocks.

P1040378

Another afternoon sewing and I assembled the pieces, added the border and made a start on the machine quilting.  Plugging away, the quilting was finished, the binding attached, and hand stitched down last evening.

I have just the place to hang my new wall-hanging, but it’s not going up ...

Wet weather stitching from Romany Quilting

It’s been a wet and wild week, just right to sit inside and do a little stitching.  I’m working away on my “Winter Welcome” wall-hanging and it is a relatively small project.  It started off like this – the Welcome banner I had stitched earlier, plus a handful of fabrics to get on with the rest of the job.

P1040343
It started like this

I needed to make one small log cabin block, and attach the applique to a couple of other blocks.  This pattern was a gift from my quilty pen friend Carol who had also included some pretty ...

Another week–another project from Romany Quilting

“Roll the Dice” today brought up project number three on my List of Six UFOs.  That’s the first time out for my Winter Welcome wall-hanging, which incidentally, was a gift from my quilting pen-friend Carol from South Dakota, who has sent me many interesting gifts over the years.

P1040340

As well as sending me the pattern, Carol had included the dark blue fabric for the background, and the dark strips to make the log cabin block.

P1040341

I had already made a small start a while ago, and had stitched the “Welcome” panel.  And gathered up the fabrics to complete the ...

Teapots wall hanging from Pieced Brain

[Edited: I got teapots from the book: Teapots 2 to applique' by Kay Mackenzie.]

I have been wanting to make a quilt with teapots for a long time, and finally got around to making it. Although smaller than the one on the pattern (which I cannot mention because it is PACKED for the move! Dang it!!! I promise to update this post as soon as we settle in), I think it turned out nice.

This quilt reminds me of my grandmother, and I will call it "Grandma's Cupboard".

I raided my stash of blue fabrics, choosing fabrics with small ...

Poppies from Lost Quilt Come Home Page

Carol McMillan is searching for her quilt called Poppies. This quilt was last seen on January 16, 2016 at the Dearth Center in Coldwater, Michigan after a Rotary Draw Down event. Carol donated it to the Rotary for the auction and the person that purchased it was helping with clean up afterwards when it disappeared. Everyone thought it might have gotten packed up with the supplies that are used for the annual event, but it did not turn up this year when they set up.

This quilt is 22″ by 17″. The main colors are green, red, orange, and purple ...

Lisette asked for a quilted wall hanging made from the fabric in her dress, and the fabric from her bridesmaid's dress. Her wedding colors were purple and sage green.  


This design shows off the purple fabric, and the feather quilting, and one of the borders was quilted in purple, with a green background quilting.

Dorothy's wedding dress had beautiful lace on the yoke, sleeves and around the bottom of the dress. which I was able to incorporate into the quilt design.  She also asked me to use the headpiece she wore in her wedding.  


The quilting design in the quilt is more free form, with a background on the border of straight lines 1/2 inch apart.

Whoopee Wednesday! from Humble Quilts

We made it to Idaho just in time! I got back last evening and today it is snowing again!

Here's my niece's little boy (my grand-nephew) Zackary on the quilt I gave to them. 
He is 3 weeks old and doing well.
We took my niece out for dinner. They've had a lot of snow too, so I understand being housebound.
My daughter made the trip with me. 

 Because I was meeting my daughter, I went a different way- right by Pendleton Woolen Mills
with a long and wonderful Oregon history.

Free Pattern: Valentine Trio from Butterfly Threads



(13.5"x 25.5")

Happy Valentine's Day friends!! I made this little wall hanging the other day for my front hall. I hadn't hung anything since I took the Christmas wall hanging down and it looked a little naked. I used the heart pattern I shared HERE minus the border strips.

To make this Valentine Trio wall hanging:

Make three heart blocks without the border strips. Then...

Cutting:

Cut 2 inner border strips 1 1/2" x 18 1/2".
