Strawberry Splendor from Quilt Fabrication

Springtime is here, and so are strawberries!

Strawberry Splendor quilted wall hanging

Fresh strawberries, straight from the farm, and oh so sweet! Let's honor this luscious berry with a beautiful wall hanging pattern, Strawberry Splendor - more details and a discount code are within the post!

Strawberry Splendor 38 x 38 wall hanging pattern

This pattern is fairly straight forward - it uses 11" paper pieced berries, appliqued flowers, and pieced ric rac chains. The berries are easy to paper piece as there's no seams to match, no points to worry about, and as a special bonus, all the fabric piece sizes for paper piecing are listed for you - no need to ...

Another little wall hanging from the pattern Happy Holidays.  You can get the pattern at the Attic Window Quilt Shop.  Haven't decided which one I will make next.  The pattern includes nine different wall hangings.  They are all adorable.  However, the next one will have to wait because I'm off to make more monsters.  And after that I have to get things ready to sew during Happy Scrappers on Saturday.  We are calling this a Stitch-In because everyone is welcome to come sew with us.  Work on whatever you want; it doesn't have to be scrappy.

Serendipity Mini and A Giveaway from Quilt Fabrication

I'm proud to introduce my latest project, Serendipity Mini!

Serendipity quilt

Measuring in at 24" x 24", this is a perfect size to participate in the Small, Smaller, Smallest Blog Hop, sponsored by Carol at Just Let Me Quilt

First, a little background on this quilt. I started 2017 with good intentions of following along with RSC17. I got as far as red in March, then too many other projects demanded my attention, and RSC17 fell by the wayside.

Looking back at the 2017 Quilt Gallery, I see there's at least nine RSC17 quilts that I did make during those ...

Now I’m back home…….. from Romany Quilting

It’s only been a few days, but it’s certainly great to be back home again.  To sleep in our own bed, have more room to move around instead of just a caravan sized dwelling, and to be able to have my own washing machine again without sharing!  And as I said in the comment section of my last blog post – thanks for all for the comments and good wishes, and I’m pleased that so many of you came along for the ride with us on our trip.  The South Island of New Zealand has stunning scenery, and ...

3D Groovy Wrapped Star Finish from Pink Doxies

Wrapped Star

I have been buried deep in books about making 8 pointed stars. Construction methods, math, templates, names, and yes, new quilts I want to make this year! I think I'm in love with these versatile blocks! Technically, my 3D Groovy star is a Wrapped star as it has 4 strips to each star point, and perhaps also because of the 4 patches in the corner. I could not tease out if the pattern would still be called 'wrapped' without those, or if there were variations related to how the colors/values were used. It's nitty-gritty, but ...

New pattern: Flower Tile, a charm pack quilt from Carried Away Quilting

Since ringing in the new year, I've introduced you to four new Carried Away Quilting patterns, and today we have number five: Flower Tile. This one might be my favorite.

Flower Tile is inspired by the delicate symmetry found on beautiful painted floor tiles in historic homes. Thin sashing mimics crisp grout lines, while a repeated pattern of softly colored prints creates a lovely cohesive effect. It’s the perfect pattern to show off your favorite charm pack

This quilt finishes at 44 1/2" square and lends itself to many different fabric styles and colorways. Sew up Flower ...

Roman Stripe Improv Art Quilt Finish from Pink Doxies

Roman Stripe: Variation I

I laughed a little when I typed the name above. Variation I. I wrote I because there is already a II in the works. I need this kind of work in my life to balance me. It makes me whole. This play on a traditional pattern that I would call an art quilt. Very traditional scraps spun into something that begged for stitching. Stitching that took on a life of its own. My fingers knew. My head did not. 

If you missed the two posts that dealt with the creation and progress of this small quilt ...

Star Crossed Quilt Top from Lost Quilt Come Home Page

Joni Thomson is searching for her Star Crossed Quilt. The quilt top was last seen during August 2016 when it was shipped from Davenport, Florida to Salt Lake City, Utah. Some of the contents of the box were found and returned to her, but not this quilt top or the fabrics and scraps that were with it. In the box with the quilt top, there were several large pieces of fabric yardage in the aqua check, the solid white, the yellow dot, and three or four different red fabrics along with the pattern she used.

This quilt top is 48 ...

Project Quilting 9.2 Entry: Mosaic Falling Leave from Mulberry Patch Quilts

I’m still intrigued by the idea of fabric mosaics, so I thought I’d carry that idea a step further into this week’sProject Quilting 9.2 “Triangulation“. It’s risky… because I’m not sure this will work–it could be a huge failure, but I think it’s worth a try.

Instead of cutting the square fabric tiles,like I did in my last post, this time I’m thinking of stepping it up a notch by cutting the tiny squares into even tinier triangles and placing them onto an overall gridded pattern to replicate leaves ...

Variety is the Spice of Life from Quilted Joy

The great thing about quilting is that you never have to make the same quilt twice. Even when you mean to, they will often grow and develop into different designs.

Melanie's memorial quilt made with her dad's shirts and fabrics that reminded her of him.

Melanie had intended to make five identical memorial quilts, one for each of her siblings and herself. Instead she had five slightly different quilts with very similar designs!

Melanie's memorial quilt made with her dad's shirts and fabrics that reminded her of him.

Every quilt has the hearts, which were made from her dad’s shirts, wood grain fabric because he was a woodworker, and frog fabric because he called his children “frogs.”

My current scrap quilt from Amalie's Armfuls

While I have been spending hours, looking through 4 years of photos to play catch up on my blog I have been sewing a new fun project for just me.  Back in 2011, I made this quilt.  It is still my favorite summer quilt.  It has been fun, going through my fabric in my #destash during the past 3 years.  I kept all the scraps from that quilt...from the extra border fabric to the small triangles I cut off.  I found the small bag 2 weeks ago and decided that I needed to make a fun quilt just for ...

27 Quilt Finishes in 2017 from Pink Doxies

Quilting Mandalas: 
New Work from Old

I labored and debated when titling this post. It's packed with so many big ideas while trying to be subtle. Yes, I know 27 finishes is not so subtle. But I'm excited--newly inspired, and self-directed for the New Year. But first, more about last year.

Worthwhile Working Vacation

It's hard to work on vacation, but last weekend I forced myself. It was foggy and cold in Florida even for a northerner, and the wind was fierce. After a chilly swim I stayed in, and worked on Pink Doxies' webpage. 

I pinned ...

The Art in Quilting from Quilted Joy

Quilts can be very functional. They can also be just for beauty. Check out these great works of art that our renters created. Some were blocks of the month, or Row by Row designs, and some are just works of imagination. One thing we know for sure is that they’re all amazing!

Bonnie quilted her 2017 row by row quilt! She even included Quilted Joy's row!

Bonnie made this 2017 Row by Row quilt. She used a free motion meander to quilt it. Isn’t it colorful and fun. Definitely lots of ‘Ways to Go’. She even included Quilted Joy’s row! It’s the one with the hot air balloons.

Happy New Year and Looking Back from Romany Quilting

Happy  New Year to all – may you all look forward to a peaceful, happy and healthy 2018.
And it’s that time again when quilters in blogland look back to see what we have completed over the year.  As some of you know, I list six UFOs  at a time and use the “roll the dice” method to choose one to work on for each particular week.  It goes without saying that the sewing time available each week varies considerably.  Sometimes my week is very busy with meetings, appointments or social activities, and then other weeks I get to spend ...

2017 has been fantastic and trying, blissful and heartwrenching, with moments of peace and great despair - all in one year! Remember, there is opposition (and order) in all things, so the year was as it was supposed to be. Now, let's send good vibrations and prayers to the Divine and to the universe ...
