A Parade of Quilts from Quilting Is More Fun Than Housework

 I was all prepared to share my Bee Grateful quilt from a shortcut pattern through the Fat Quarter Shop.  But the fabric for the kit still has not arrive for them to sell so they are holding off on sharing all the quilts.  So I thought I would take this opportunity to share a few photos sent to me by quilters who have used my patterns.

Above are a couple of quilt photos that were included with pattern reviews from Etsy buyers.  These quilts were made using my Wiggle Time pattern.  I always enjoy seeing what colors and fabrics are ...

A Wiggle Time Finish from Quilting Is More Fun Than Housework


A few weeks ago I came across some coordinating fat quarters and some matching background fabrics in my stash and decided to make a quilt using my Wiggle Time pattern.

I was able to not only get it quilted this week but I also attached the binding.
Hurray for a finish!

I really like how the printed background fabric looks with the focus prints.  It looks like it came from the same collection! (but it didn't - I recently ordered the background fabric from Connecting Threads. Sadly I don't think it is available anymore.)

I did struggle finding a ...

I told you it is a Fast Finish from Quilting Is More Fun Than Housework

 Wednesday morning I shared how my recent fabric pull came together.

If you missed it, here are the fabrics that I put together from my stash.  They were the perfect size cuts for me to make my Wiggle Time quilt pattern.

I said in my post that it is a quick and easy pattern. 
 I cut and sewed my quilt top Thursday afternoon!  

I admit, I have this pattern memorized so I can speed through it really quickly.  I am excited by how it turned out so I wanted to share it today.

  It started raining here and I live ...

Evolution of a Fabric Pull from Quilting Is More Fun Than Housework

 I know that not every quilter works this way, but almost all of my quilts start with the fabric.  I end up being inspired by a piece of fabric and it just takes off from there.  Sometime the fabrics come together quickly - other times it might take many months.

Back in January, Sally over at The Objects of  Design graciously gifted me some scraps.  In amongst her generous bag of fabrics were these three fat quarters.  I rarely have fabrics from the same collection (or even the same print) so I set them aside and decided to use them together ...

A Mini Quilt Show from Quilting Is More Fun Than Housework

 Pretty regularly, I receive photos of quilts made using one of my patterns.  I always love to see them and thought I would share a few of them with you today.

Here is a wonderful quilt made from my Wiggle Time pattern.  I love the solid color and the quilting she added that "wiggles" across the quilt..  This lap size pattern takes five fat quarters and some background fabric - you probably have the fabric in your stash!

This quilt was made using my All That Jazz pattern.  After seeing this one, I remembered I have a tub full of neutrals ...

Dinosaur Scraps into a Finish from Quilting Is More Fun Than Housework

What do I do with some bits of dinosaur prints?

I decided to cut them up into squares, pull a few coordinating prints from my stash and grab a couple yards of a background fabric.  Then I went to my go-to Wiggle Time pattern to make a small quilt.

For one of the dino prints I only had a few squares, so I just sprinkled them throughout the quilt.

I barely had just enough of the background solid - in fact, I made the top and bottom border a bit smaller than the pattern calls out so that I would have ...

Oh Scrap! : Some New Projects from Quilting Is More Fun Than Housework

 I am always kind of sad when the end of October gets here.  That means that there are no more Rainbow Scrap Challenge colors until January.  I know many use the last two months of the year to finish their quilts, but I rarely follow that schedule and never seem to have enough blocks to finish up into quilts.  What else can I do except start some new projects!

 I decided to dig through my scraps and see what inspires me.  

Often, when I am looking for inspiration, I rarely choose fabrics I love.  I am usually trying to focus ...

A Mini Quilt Show from Quilting Is More Fun Than Housework

It has been a while since I have shared some of the photos others have sent me of quilts made form my patterns.  I love to see what people make and thought you might like to see them too.

This sweet quilt was made using my Summertime Blossoms pattern.  It was made from one of the students in a class I did last year.  I love the soft colors in it.

Wiggle Time quilts are always a favorite.  Five fat quarters and some background fabric and in no time you have a quilt top.  The variations are truly endless!
