Getting in the Christmas Spirit from Romany Quilting

It was a bit like “Oh, I’d forgotten about that”, when I looked through the crates containing my Christmas things.  We didn’t decorate at all last year as we were away in our caravan traveling through the South Island  from mid December till March.  It was like greeting old friends as I dug through the crates, unwrapping this and that.  I have been very lucky over the years and have received some lovely gifts from my pen friend Carol, from South Dakota.  I love my little Santa sitting at his sewing machine, and she also sent me four ...

Christmas version of Fat Quarter Flourish (plus kits!) from Carried Away Quilting

Earlier this year I introduced you to a new pattern called Fat Quarter Flourish, a pretty 20 1/2" square table topper or wall hanging made from just five fat quarters! I’ve been waiting for the chance to sew this pattern in a holiday collection, so here goes . . . Fat Quarter Flourish featuring Christmas Figs by Fig Tree & Company for Moda.

There are so many lovely prints in the Christmas Figs collection that it was difficult to choose which five to feature. But that's what makes this pattern so fun. I don’t think you can go wrong, no ...

weaving ~ trying something new from Sotak Handmade

I'm a firm believer in working hard and doing one's best but also in slowing down, taking things easy, relaxing, and doing things just for fun. I also think it's very, very important to try and learn new things. I've wanted to explore weaving for quite some time and this past week I finally made it a priority. Oh, it was fun! It feels great to be a beginner. You know, when you still don't know how things "should" be done so you dare to do it your way, when it's totally ok to ...

Throwback Thursday for October from Quilting & Learning

Welcome to Throwback Thursday. I'm hosting this month's link-up for Sandra of mmm! Quilts.

I hope that you've got some great projects to share this month. It's so fun to see older projects that were created before you started your blog.

Beatles Wall Hanging

I made this wall hanging for my daughter many moons ago - I'm afraid that I really don't know when. I know that it was before I started free motion quilting, so before I got my jag (that's my sewing machine - the only jag I'm likely to own!).

Beatles ...

Finishing Orizuru – the Cranes Wall Hanging from From My Carolina Home

Orizuru was finished on time, and is currently hanging at the Mountain Regional State Fair, in the Quilts Division category Wall Hangings.  But, finishing it gave me a few more headaches before it was done.  Since the blue markers were working well, I continued with them and marked a few feathers on the outer border.  I also marked a 1/4-inch line all the way around to keep the feathers within the frame so the binding wouldn’t cover them up.

Orizuru Quilt at From My Carolina Home

I only marked a few to get me started, doing touch-and-go feathers.  These have no backtracking, so they are ...

SOME QUICK PROJECTS from The Proficient Needle

I made a few quick projects recently, just to get my quilting muscles exercised!

The first project was a baby quilt, made from a printed panel.  This will belong to my new grandchild, who will be making an appearance near the end of September.
I know this will get lots of wear, and washing, so I'll be making another for birthday #1.
Every year, my guild makes placemats for "Meals on Wheels" recipients.  They are distributed by the Victorian Order of Nurses in our community.  I use this quick pattern, that takes 4 fat quarters, and backing, with no ...

Patriotic Vote…A FREE Pattern! from Gray Barn Designs

Hi!  It’s Cindy hosting our blog today from the great State of Ohio!

Sandy and I are excited to offer another FREE pattern from our “Patriotic Quilt Series”.

It’s a cute mini wall hanging reminding everyone to be sure and vote during this (and future) election seasons.


This mini is pieced using 1.5 inch squares and half square triangles.  We added a few rectangles to outline the letters and then a few additional white strips to surround our red, white, blue and gold masterpiece.  We used a black border to create a “picture frame” around the quilt ...

Custom kits featuring Christmas Figs by Fig Tree & Company from Carried Away Quilting

It’s the middle of summer in my neck of the woods, which of course means days filled with sunshine, warm temperatures and outdoor activities.  It also means that it’s time for many quilters to begin working on . . . Christmas quilts!

I know, I know . . . you may not be ready to think about winter and the holiday season, but the truth is, now is the time to get started! I thought I’d help you out by kitting two of my festive patterns, Welcome Home Wreath and Starry Way, using the brand new Christmas Figs collection by Fig Tree & Company ...

3 Shades of Grey und ein bisschen Rot from I like to Quiltblog

Ein Wandquilt 1x1 Meter
Ich mag diesen 3D Effekt sehr. 
Kommentar meines Mannes zum Quilt:
"Ganz schön, aber ein bisschen wenig Farben"
Da hat er natürlich recht, aber bei diesem Quilt 
finde ich das Unbunte schon ganz schön und passend.
Gesehen in "Lena`s Patchwork "

Da ist die Anleitung in Zentimeter, und ich kann mir nicht helfen,
das ist einfach nichts für mich...
-wenn ich  z.B. x,25 oder x,75 cm zuschneiden muss bin ich schon genervt.
Ist natürlich reine Gewöhnung, ich da einfach nicht (mehr) flexibel genug.
Ich meine, ich habe es ja geschafft, das Muster ganz ...

Winter Quilt Festival–Finished from Romany Quilting

Finished just in time for our Southern Hemisphere winter – my Winter Quilt Festival wall-hanging.  This panel was a Christmas gift several years ago from my quilty pen friend Carol, who lives in South Dakota.  She had stitched on two borders before posting it half way around the world to me as a lovely gift.  I machine quilted in the ditch around the three straight lines in the borders, then several curvy lines around the blue border.  This was to be one of my “slow stitching” projects, and I decided to do some hand quilting in the centre of the panel ...

⚞ DIY boho fabric hoop ⚟ from Charm About You

Whimsical, calming and a cinch to create! I'm going to show you how to make a fun 'no sew' fabric wall hanging, using only an embroidery hoop and strips of fabric. 

You will need:

An embroidery hoop 
Strips of fabric in various lengths
Optional: nail polish / paint 

For this project I used a 10cm" hoop, which makes for a cute mini decoration but you could use any size - the bigger the hoop, the more scraps you can bust! I recommend using narrow strips but if you were making a mahoosive one you might want to use wider strips to ...

Flutterby Blue – A Free Quilt Pattern from Gray Barn Designs

I’ve mentioned my sewing room clean up in previous posts. Norma, my Bearded Collie was telling me in her subtle way that I needed to get a handle on all these scraps.


Since a lot of my scraps were smaller pieces, I cut them into convenient 1.5, 2.0 and 2.5 inch squares.  After taking inventory, I had a lot of 1.5 inch squares to create something fun.

What to do?  I made a butterfly!


Wall Hanging or Table Topper…you get to choose!

I know sewing all these 1.5 inch squares together may seem ...

A Quilters Place from I like to Quiltblog

Mein kleiner Beitrag zum Ufo-Abbau-LinkParty

Ich muss gestehen, dass es echt noch nicht
 so gut läuft mit dem Abbauen der UFO´s.
Ich fange immer neue Sachen an...;-)
Aber ich bin mega glücklich mit dem kleinen Redwork-Quiltchen,
11½ x 14 Inch.
Das Muster war letztes Jahr in eine Patchworkzeitchrift.
Für die Flying Geeses am Rand habe ich ein neues/altes Lineal benutzt,
nämlich das Quilt in a Day Mini Ruler Set von Elenor Burns
 und ich bin begeistert von ihre Methode,
perfekte Gänse zu nähen, sogar diese Minis in  ¾ x 1½" .

One Monthly Goal - May from Georgia Girl Quilter

Linking up with One Monthly Goal for my May WIP. It would be great to get this project completed now in order to use this coming Christmas.

Not sure when I pieced this 36 x 36 table topper/wall hanging...maybe 7 or 8 years ago.  It seems all my UFOs were started around that time. I wonder what was going on in my life?

My goal is to machine embroider a simple Christmas themed design in each of the white squares and the snowball centers, using silver or gold thread...not sure which. I'll then quilt and bind ...

Design Wall from Quilt in Progress

Other quilters have shown and mentioned their design walls on their blogs. I have never felt the need for one, because where I used to live we had a balcony landing over the first floor living room and I was able to lay out the squares and view them from above.

I didn’t want to invest in anything costly, and I wasn’t sure I already had any flannel that was plain enough not to disrupt the quilt blocks design. I went to the internet and found a super simple way to put up a temporary design wall – use ...
