Colour Change from Romany Quilting

The colour for those of us taking part in the Rainbow Scrap Challenge (RSC) has changed this month to aqua.  In my mind, aqua also encompasses the  shades of turquoise and teal.  Once again, not shades I have a huge amount of, but I found enough strips and small pieces to cut and stitch blocks for my two Little Bricks projects.


Little Bricks

We took a trip up to Palmerston North on Thursday to get the many staples removed from Robin’s knee, in fact we counted 28 of them!  The nurse had some sort of handy little implement which ...

Christmas in July – Part Two from From My Carolina Home

Today we’ll finish the sew along / embroidery project. If you are visiting from Sarah’s blog hop 12 Days of Christmas in July over at Confessions of a Fabric Addict, welcome!

Sew 18 scrappy squares into 6 sets of three squares in a row. Press to one side.

Sew a square set to the right ...

Autumn is here from Romany Quilting

Autumn has well and truly arrived.  Cool mornings and evenings, the sun is rising later and setting earlier, but we are still enjoying nice crisp sunny days.  It’s time to ring the changes and hang my Autumn quilt up.  I love the rich golden colours in this quilt.  The centre baskets came in a kit sent to me from my pen friend  in South Dakota.  I wanted to make it bigger so put the baskets on point and added borders to make it a wall hanging size.  This was the first time I tried circular spiral machine quilting.

Welcome! Velkommen! Willkommen! Bienvenida! Bienvenue! from Humble Quilts

However you say welcome where you live my Welcome quilt is complete!

Diane of Butterfly Quilting Threads worked her magic and transformed my top! I love the fans!

Now it is hanging in my entryway. 

Super thrilled with it!

I had an amazing weekend away at a women's retreat. It was peaceful and restorative. 
The setting was incredible.
Mt Adams

The property is an old school on the White Salmon River in Trout Lake, WA.

The cloud formation was so cool! I think it is a lenticular cloud. 

Seen on my morning walk! 

This too!

I'm ready to ...

How to Mount a Wall Hanging onto Canvas from Patchwork Sampler Blog

Are you ever a little disappointed when you hang a little quilt on the wall or is it just me? Sometimes they hang a little wonky, the binding isn’t quite straight, the edges ripple, or they are not flat against the wall. I ended that frustration by figuring out another way to hang wall quilts. I simply mount the wall hanging onto canvas, then hang the canvas. It takes a little time but the finish is worth the effort. 

I start with a cheap canvas that is the approximate size of the wall hanging. These are frequently on sale ...

Christmas Tree Wall Hanging Tutorial from Tea Rose Home

O Christmas tree, O Christmas tree... every year I see fun Christmas tree quilt ideas online and want to make one, but a year passes by so quickly and poof! It is already December. I tried coming up with my own pattern around October. I was sketching and experimenting with fabrics. After a few tries, I came up with this tree pattern. Wouldn't it be so pretty if I made 300 plus blocks and made a quilt with these cute trees? I was looking at several projects on my table and decided not to do that this year. Instead ...

New Listing in Etsy Shop from The Quilt Yarn

Finally finished my latest project and put it up in my Etsy shop. A bit on the late side, but better late than is the Quilted Christmas Table Runner/ Wall Hanging with the three applique sheep.

The runner measures 18-7/8in x 37-5/8in and looks also great on the wall as a bit of a Christmas decoration. In terms of quilting, I put a loop design in the background behind the sheep, then put a wavy line in the red sashing with a wave ruler. This took me the longest time to work out how the wave ...

Apothecary Quilt from The Cloth Parcel

Our second pattern release this fall is the Apothecary Quilt. This cute little wall hanging originally debuted in the Sept/Oct 2020 issue of McCall’s Quilting. They changed up the shape of the jars a little bit in their version of the pattern. Whether this was an accident or on purpose, we don’t know. We have […]

A Quilt – and Removing Staples from Romany Quilting

It’s always exciting to find a quilt displayed – sometimes when you least expect it.  This was the case when we attended an appointment for Robin, it was an Anzac wall hanging.  For those who don't know, Anzac stands for Australian and New Zealand Army Corps, and we have a public holiday on April 25th to remember the fallen soldiers from both countries.  Upon enquiry, I found out that this wall hanging was stitched by the wife of one of the orthopedic surgeons who consult here.  One of my aims is to make an Anzac quilt one day soon ...

Handcrafts, Art and Cheesecake from Romany Quilting

Our weekend was spent in Woodville (about 90km each way).  We were invited  to attend a caravan rally (with a different group) and it was nice to catch up with several couples we had met up with over the years at different rallies.  One of the highlights for me was the craft display.  Although I didn't know it was happening ahead of time I had several hand stitched items in the caravan, so I could take part too.  There obviously is a lot of talent in this group, with everything from knitting, quilts, toys, hardanger on show.  I certainly ...

Autumn Time from Romany Quilting

I know it’s been Autumn here for a wee while, but I’ve only just got around to changing my wall hangings in the sitting room.  Before we know it Winter will be nipping at our heels and it will be time for a change again.  But in the meantime, here is Autumn – nothing new to see,  but its always nice to ring the changes.



Autumn quilts out again

You may remember that last time we were up at my daughter’s home, she had handed granddaughter Megan’s quilts to her to look after.  I've just received ...

How to hang a quilt on a wall from Pieced Brain

How to hang a quilt on a wall

Learn how to hang a quilt on a wall with a sleeve sewn to its back. It is super easy to make – no need to turn a long fabric tube inside out.

I have many friends who do not like to make hanging sleeves for a quilt. Instead, they hang their quilts using other methods or tools. So, before showing you how I make these sleeves, let’s explore some of the options to hang quilts on the wall.

Thumbtacks and shower curtain rings

I do this all the time with transparent thumbtacks and cool-looking shower curtain rings. It is ...
