Finished Embroidery Project from Pieced Brain

I have a finish to show you! A while ago I talked about Gail Pan's book "Patchwork Loves Embroidery Too" and my plan to make one of the amazing projects in her book. Well, here it is! This weekend I carved time away from moving preparations (yep, in a few weeks we will be moving) and finished it, albeit with a few changes from Gail's instructions.

I knew I would not have time to hand stitch anything so I reached for my trusted Heat 'n Bond Lite, traced the templates for the dark frame onto it, made them ...

Under the Needle from Grandma's Red Needle

Hello everyone!
Do you remember me?! :) It has been ages since my last blog post (almost one year ago). It became a bit overwhelming and I believe the break was needed. I have missed blogging and hope getting into the routine again. 

So much is going on under the needle so far this year. For years I have bought (read; hoarded!) batik and as all quilter's know; batik is too beautiful to cut into, isn't it?! :) For me, that changed this year!  2-3 weeks ago I finished a jelly roll quilt (no photos yet). I made my very ...

Missing: 3 Glenda Wilder Mini Quilts from Lost Quilt Come Home Page

Glenda Wilder is asking for help in locating three quilts, all her original design. These quilts were shipped from Hannover, Germany to the US, to be used as display items in a quilt show in Houston, TX. A box containing quilts was shipped on October 16, 2018 from Germany to Houston, TX. When it was received at the show, the package was sealed and inside was a note from the shipping company’s processing center in Atlanta, Georgia, stating that “the box came open and some items may have been lost”. The following 3 quilts went missing from this shipment ...

Scrapping away still from Quilting Lots Moore Designs

I'm not going to talk about the fact that it's already well into March. Much better to talk about fabric and projects and everything else except how fast time flies. That's what you get when you look in the mirror I told  myself.  Just don't look and you wont have to think about it.  LOL.
In my attempt to reduce my stash,  I may have been a little successful since I spoke with you last, because at least I haven't bought any new fabric!!  Progress has been made on a number of projects, and I ...

Flower Tile: a charm pack quilt for spring from Carried Away Quilting


February may be winding down, but winter is not. Today we’re in a blizzard warning and the week ahead will bring more snow and cold temps. Once again, I looked to my quilts to bring a vision of spring to the inside of my home since mother nature is not cooperating.  Yesterday I graced our table with my Flower Tile quilt, and it cheered me right up!


Flower Tile is a charm pack quilt that finishes at 44 1/2" square. My sample features the Strawberry Fields Revisited collection by Fig Tree & Company, but I think this pattern would ...

 It feels good to have a finish this soon in the new year. I wanted something new for my table, you can read more about that here. I like the soft colours I used in this piece. That new star block ain't too bad either. It is paper pieced using one of my favourite methods freezer paper.

I seem to have a theme going from Romany Quilting

Christmas is over – it’s all packed away till next year.  Robin’s been up the ladder again taking down the strings of outdoor lights, with me steadying the ladder, just in case.  As we get older we are not so nimble, are we.  I’ve taken care of indoors, the various decorations are now safety packed away in their crates, (farewell till next year, my precious Jim Shore ornaments) and the Christmas quilts have come down too.

I’ve put three quilts up in the sitting room, and I seem to have a theme going - they all feature New ...

Reflecting Back and Looking Forward from Romany Quilting

We are now back home from our Christmas/New Year holiday and it’s that time of year when quilters and crafters like to take stock of what we have achieved during the year.  Whether it’s been a little or a lot, each finish is special and something to celebrate.  I’ll never be in the league of some of the “super quilters” out there in blog-land, but I’m still happy with what I have done.

How to find your voice amid so many? from Asianartandquilt's Blog

Abstract art quilt Fireworks are a very common subject for art and photos. With so many images of exploding light in a dark night, how does one find a fresh perspective? In my latest commission of abstract fireworks, I tried to do just that.

How to find your own voice amid many from Asianartandquilt's Blog

A former client wanted to commission another art quilt. The theme she chose was abstract fireworks. Fireworks are common subject matter in many photos and artwork. Since there are only so many ways to portray exploding colors in a dark sky, the images can be pretty similar. The challenge becomes […]

Santa Snow Globe Wall Hanging – Christmas Project from Brown Bird Designs Quilts

News flash — We have less than two weeks until Christmas!!! AHHHHHH!! It’s the perfect time to show you what I have been working on. Ever since I made my Peppermint Way Table Runner, as I cut out the English paper piecing parts, I saw the hole of the ring as a snow globe. The peppermint ring had the perfect base for the globe, too. As I was working with the pinks and red fabrics from Jill Howarth and her Way Up North line for Riley Blake Designs, there was one Santa scene that kept speaking the word snow globe ...

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!).

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.

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