Little & Large Winding Ways from Quilt Obsession

The Inklingo 12″ Winding Ways collection was released on the weekend and I immediately printed enough for one block. I initially thought I’d make a lap quilt using the large block in a different fabric but, as soon as I got the collection, I decided to do just one of the block for now in the same red and white as the tiny 3″ blocks. This is going to be the centre of the quilt and will be surrounded by lots and lots of the tiny ones.

The back, after pressing and grading the seams. The one long centre ...

Lots of Winding Ways from Quilt Obsession

I am finding the Inklingo 3″ Deluxe Winding Ways blocks absolutely irresistible.

So much so I had to make a couple with these little floral and soft green fabrics. This is one of the variations in the Deluxe collection – the centre, dividing pieces are just a bit larger. The camera doesn’t seem to like these fabrics as this looks much prettier in person than it does in the photo! There will be a few more made with these fabrics and they’re going to be, I think, turned into a special mug rug for someone. I think that all ...

French General Miniatures from Quilt Obsession

Typing that heading made me think of Laura Secord Miniatures. A good friend used to get a box of Laura Secord Miniature chocolates for Christmas every year. No one — and I mean no one — got to touch that box. She absolutely loved them but then the Laura Secord store that was close by closed and no more of the miniatures.

My French General miniatures are much less fattening! It all began with Winding Ways, Quilting the Inklingo Way, Linda Franz’ new book. While it uses Winding Ways block, the lessons taught in it are applicable to any block plus lots ...

Capriccioso – Take 2 from Quilt Obsession

Yet another project has been brought out to be worked on again. About three and a half years ago, I started the Capriccioso quilt from Millefiori Quilts 3. When I began it I was using this grey stripe.

When I opened the first Capriccioso project box, I immediately decided I wanted to switch that grey stripe for something else. To me the stripe felt too strong.

So I decided to try this grey print and put together this small piece of the top. The it sat for about a month. After that I looked at it again and decided to ...

Fireworks! from Quilt Obsession

There’s another project box that got opened. Upon opening it, I found this – everything for Christmas Fireworks (Midnight Fireworks from Millefiori Quilts 1) with all the centre stars done.

Beneath the stars? All the pieces to finish each of the 35 blocks.

The stars began with this fabric. I fell in love with it the minute I saw it as I knew it was perfect for some fussy cutting/printing. I’ve used it in this Christmas Fireworks project and plan to use it in another project that’s not yet started.

When I began this way back in ...

Pastel Winding Ways from Quilt Obsession

Another project box got pulled out over the past year. I couldn’t remember what was in it so when I opened it to find four stacks of pieces for 4.5″ Winding Ways blocks I was thrilled! I like these small ones but I can’t wait to play with the 3″ Winding Ways Inklingo collection that is going to be released sometime soon. I’m already thinking of what fabrics might be just perfect for it – tiny blocks in which every seam involves curved piecing? The perfect fit for me!!

There was a little stack of completed blocks ...

Hexagon of Hexagons from Quilt Obsession

This is another of the projects I’ve been working on – a hexagon of hexagons. Right now it’s a hexagon but it will evolve into something else. I haven’t got anything specifically planned — yet. So I’ll just keep adding rounds until it gets to a certain size and then decide where to go with it next. As of right now it measures 11.5″from top to bottom and 13″ from side to side.   

The back of it after grading the seams and pressing. With this many tiny pieces, grading the seams will make a huge difference ...

Nocturne from Quilt Obsession

One of the projects I started over the past year is Nocturne from Millefiori Quilts 3. I had fun going through fabrics looking for just the right one because, of course, I was going to be using the Inklingo Nocturne collection to do some fussy-cutting/printing.

This was the fabric I eventually chose.

Two project boxes are being used for this – one with just the pieces of the black background fabric.

And one with everything else plus the various threads I’m using for the project.

The blocks are quick to stitch. I surrounded four of them with the black ...

And Yet More Fiesta! from Quilt Obsession

I am not even close to finishing the Fiesta top. I keep forgetting that even though I laid out the blocks and thought I had the block placement all figured out, I’ve been changing it as I go — so it’s not just a matter of sewing the blocks together now but moving them around and — well, just changing things on every row since the second one!

Blue Block IMG_3228wtmk

So all I’ve got are some more pics of a few of the blocks. First a pretty blue star block.

Some of the star blocks have a frame, so to speak ...

More Fiesta from Quilt Obsession

The colourful Fiesta blocks are the perfect antidote to the grey days of winter that we’ve had so many of this year. I have enough of the fabric left to use in some other project that calls for some wild and colourful fussy cut pieces.

Gold Star Block IMG_3205wtmk

The effects from fussy cutting/printing a fabric always is a bit of a surprise until the pieces are sewn together. The fabric I used to fussy cut/print for Fiesta has definitely been that – and then some. It was fun to see each block as I finished it.

Fiesta!!! from Quilt Obsession

This book arrived and I want to make almost every one of the quilts in it! So it’s a very good thing I got Dance of the Poinsettias done before the book arrived.

Millefiori Quilts 4 IMG_3196

The cover quilt is called Fiesta Gitana and I knew I had to make it the second I saw those skinny stars. An Inklingo Fiesta Gitana collection was released and I was off to the races.

Fiesta Box IMG_3144wtmk

In no time I had all the pieces printed, cut out and in a box that was just perfect for the Fiesta quilt.

Gold Fiesta IMG_3132wtmk

And those skinny stars turned into some ...

Dance of the Poinsettias from Quilt Obsession

I know, I know — it has been an extremely long time since I blogged. I am going to give it yet another try and hope to post twice a week — at least at first. I’ve missed blogging and, given the fact that this is like a diary of my quilting, I know I’m going to look back and wonder what I was doing!

Dancing Poinsettia TopIMG_3118wtmk

One thing I was doing was finishing Dance of the Poinsettias, my version of Can Can from Millefiori Quilts 3 made using the Inklingo Can Can collection. As it’s winter and the roof garden ...
