Lengthy Hiatus from Modern Sunbonnet Sue

I haven’t posted for ages. Well, that’s a bit of an exaggeration; more like years. My last post was published four years ago in May. My goal isn’t to update you on all that’s happened since then, although things that happened will likely show up in my writings and photos. My hope is to create […]

Beauty Product, Apple Crumble, Basket Applique, Amazing Bird Sighting from Canadian Needle Nana

All this week down at the pond I've been serenaded by several cardinals singing their beautiful songs. I had to think how blessed I am to not only live where this is a morning greeting but also to have my hearing to hear them. With hubby being hard of hearing, I'm conscious of that too. 

I had a marvelous treat last week when the barred owl suddenly alighted on a tree in the marshy area as I was sitting on the skating shack steps. I was using binoculars and caught the movement of something quite chunky looking. Because ...

Xmas in May! from Applique 'n Patch Quilting

Well, we had snow yesterday and it was still on the ground this morning!  

I finished my Xmas quilt this week and finally was able to go outside to take a photo.  Perfect timing.  A Xmas quilt and snow!  How perfect is that!

The ground was wet, so my quilt could not be unfolded and draped onto the ground for photos.  So, a swing will just have to do for now.  Snow had to be brushed off the swing so that my quilt did not get wet.  Snow in May!  We've seen snow in June ..... so stay tuned!   LOL ...

Orange Peel Quilt Top.....Design Work Completed from May Your Bobbin Always Be Full


I completed the design work on the

Orange Peel Quilt

 

I tried a scrappy placement of the peels

and it wasn't working...

I tried grouping the peels by color family

and that works...



Purple Peels in the top left area...






Pink Peels below the purple...






Light Blue Peels top right area...






Dark Blue Peels bottom right corner...

Red Peels bottom left...





I put the flying geese 

with their color family as well...






For a busy quilt, this arrangement is much

calmer on the eyes...






Yes, this is the design I am going with...






Now, to piece the blocks together ...

My Newest City Quilt, a Triumph (for the Cat) from Gefilte Quilt

Fresh from the photographer! My newest quilt - it's about 70" high. I should have blocked it, look at that top edge, curved like an archery bow, oy!

This quilt started out with a pile of buildings from my earlier city quilts. Playing with leftovers is SO much more fun than starting from scratch. Along with not having to face a blank design wall, trying to redeem flawed fragments makes me feel environmentally noble - like I'm keeping them out of landfill and thereby saving the world! 

The biggest decision I had to make was whether to turn my leftovers ...

What's Happening? from Telling Stories Through the Needle's Eye

 

Spring has officially hit the state of Maryland, and I (Teri) have been enjoying some beautiful long walks, enjoying all the flowers in bloom. There is nothing that inspires us more than nature, with all its bountiful beauty. I guess it's no surprise that we stitch so many flowers!

Even as the world is starting to slowly open up again, at least here in the US, we are staying quite busy with new designs for online stitching programs. Participating in several stitch alongs this past year has been such a fun way to "meet" new stitching friends, while we ...

Orange Peel Quilt.....Progress from May Your Bobbin Always Be Full

 

This is what the design wall looked like

in February...



All of the applique' blocks are up on the 

design wall in a random, scrappy order.

I think I can do better...




I decided to group the blocks by color family:


Purples






Pinks






Reds






Blues



Grouping the blocks by color works for me...





I have more blue orange peels and flying geese

and also some yellows...





My sewing table waits for me...

More to Come !

Week 1 of #AtoZchallenge2021Quilt (Art) from Quilting & Learning

The #AtoZchallenge2021Quilt started April 1 and I posted my first three letters on Instagram. If you didn't catch them, here is a recap.

A is for Art appliqué 

The piece is A White History of Art and the image that I used to illustrate Art Appliqué is the close-up of the representation of The White Girl by Whistler.

It was created for Art with Fabric Blog Hop, Fall 2018. It is based on a BBC series called History of Art in Three Colours. This piece is an interpretation of the White episode and the picture below portrays  The White ...

Friday Is Here - Quilting Is Back from Quilting My Way

 Today I was up early and out the door. I wanted to get to the "Compprime" computer place before heading to moms. I stopped and told them I bought this computer and have a ton of requests from Microsoft. I don't want all my accounts hooked to Microsoft. They don't need to know what I'm doing. Just Google me and you'll know anyway. 

So, I stopped and brought my laptop into him. It requested that I put a code in to open my laptop. We entered the code and then he fixed it to remove it ...

The Dogwood Quilt!!! from a daily dose of fiber

One of my favorite quilt makers is Melinda Bula. Last year Melinda was so generous and recorded a series of classes on how to make her quilts. Her dogwood design is a beauty and one of the simpler ones*. It was fun and a challenge for me because I did not buy a fabric pack from her. The most difficult part was finding so many different whites, but I’m pretty pleased with the result.

The next issue was the machine quilting. Melinda does it in a painterly sort of way, layering many threads on top of each other. I ...

Woodland Deer from Quilt Doodle Doodles

 

Happy April!  We've had several deer visiting our yard lately. There's not much for them to eat this time of year and the hostas aren't sprouting up yet. The deer are usually munching on my hostas that I have planted in the yard and it seems they are visiting those areas in the yard. Belvedere is excited whenever he sees a deer in the yard. 

Woodland Deer is a fun design to applique, the PDF pattern is available on the website. Remember the PDF pattern is free for the month that it is out. As soon as ...

Easter Gnome from Quilt Doodle Doodles...

Easter weekend is just around the corner. March has just flown by. It's hard to believe that a year ago we went into Covid lockdown and hubby started working from home. We have developed a nice work routine over the last year. I lost my office to hubby but I have enjoyed working from the kitchen table and watching the birds and walkers as they go by. I have also enjoyed having lunch with hubby everyday. He went into work yesterday and the house was too quite. So lockdown has been a blessing in disguise. Oh, enough of me ...

Fiddlebobs OP 13, 14 from Virtual Quilter

I like it, though maybe a bit busy.

There should always be some spaces for the quilting to shine!

Love the second.

Not only space for some quilting, but some designs have been added.
