Tuesday Tips: AccuquiltGo Chisel Die & Braid Strip from Mulberry Patch Quilts

Since I last talked about my new obsession with my AccuquiltGo cutter (see last post) I’ve been busy trying out the dies I already own to make as many different blocks as I can. It’s fun to take apart a block and find the die shapes to make them. While playing, I discovered a new use for my Chisel Die.

Well, I didn’t really discover it—lots of other quilters discovered this… But I discovered their discovery (thank you Pinterest). So of course I couldn’t wait to give it a try!

Did you know you can ...

AccuquiltGo! Thoughts & Bear’s Paw Block from Mulberry Patch Quilts

I purchased an Accuquilt Go die cutter awhile ago and have made so many great projects with it, including tumbler block baby quilts and Dresden Plate table toppers. But I wanted to use a combination of dies to create some other basic, well-known quilting blocks.

My original purchase of my AccuquiltGo! included a combination die (above). It has on it a 2” finished square, a couple 2” finished half square triangles (HST), and a 4” finished square.

Hey, that’s all I need to make the basic Bear’s Claw block! Perfect.

I haven’t yet purchased any of the ...

“me leva que eu vou sonho meu!, atrás da verde e rosa só não vai que já morreu”é impossível pensar em “verde e rosa” e não lembrar de imediato a música de Caetano Veloso dedicada a uma das escolas de samba mais famosas do Rio de Janeiro – a Mangueira. mas não foi o samba […]

Wie die Zeit vergeht... trotz des immer noch andauernden Alptraums from Quilt Around

Hoppla, jetzt ist ja schon fast Mai und ich habe seit über vier Monaten nichts von mir hören lassen. Aber wenigstens kann ich behaupten, dass ich in den letzten Monaten fleißig war. Zwei Ufos sind fertig geworden:


Reflections on the pond of Monet's garden

Hintergrundstoff: handgefärbter Multicolor, Applikationen: Seide und Lamé
Nach der ersten Inspiration durch ein Foto in einer Zeitschrift, über einen Besuch in diesem sehenswerten Garten bis hin zur Fertigstellung hat es fast 4 Jahre gedauert. Et voilà!

Design Wall Monday + Tuesday's To-Do List: Giverney Teleidoscope is Nearly a Flimsy from Cheeky Cognoscenti

As of Sunday night, here's what Anders' high school graduation quilt looks like on my design wall:

All Nine Rows Completed!

All of my 11" kaleidoscope blocks now have their corners attached, and they are all sewn together into nine horizontal rows with their points matching up neatly at the seam lines.  Now all I need to do is to sew those rows together into a finished quilt top (or "flimsy") before I can load it onto my long arm frame for quilting.  My One (Two!) Monthly Goal(s) for April was(were) to finish piecing this kaleidoscope quilt ...

Boro Inspired Stitching from Joy of Quilting

 Hello there my Stitching Friends. Today I want to share with you my latest Boro Inspired piece of work. 


I find this Traditional Japanese style of stitching wonderfully relaxing. It's based on need rather than decoration but still manages to produce a visually strong finished piece of work. 

I'm making my piece of Boro fabric into a Bag. But technically that's the wrong way around! Boro traditionally didn't start It's life as Boro. It slowly became Boro over years of daily use and mending.....

Boro is filled with lots of lovely Hand Stitching called Sashiko ...

Giverny Teleidoscope Quilt Progress + Custom Sewing Cabinet Modifications from Cheeky Cognoscenti

I'm still chugging along with my son's high school graduation quilt, in fits and snatches!  The real challenge is coming up with new pictures for each post about it, because it looks pretty much the same up on the design wall regardless of whether seams have been sewn together yet!  

Giverny Teleidoscope In Progress

You can't see the whole thing in the photo above, but the top six rows have corners attached and blocks sewn together into rows.  I have three more rows to go with attaching corners and joining blocks into rows.  There are no borders ...

Giverny Taleidoscope Quilt Progress from Cheeky Cognoscenti

Hello, my lovelies!  Did you miss me all week?  Since my last post, I finished quilting my bear paw quilt (and I LOVE how the graffiti quilting came out), but it's still waiting to be labeled and bound because I had to play catch-up with my son's graduation quilt.

 4 Kaleidoscope Rows Completed, 3 Rows Remaining

I was thinking that I was right on schedule to have all of the kaleidoscope centers pieced by the end of March, and then I looked at my calendar again and realized that March does not have six weeks in it, after ...

Happy Friday, makers! 

The weekend is almost here and if you haven’t already, this is a friendly reminder to take a moment and breathe.

If you’re not sure what that is, let me explain… they are usually white, cream, neutral fabrics that have subtle designs. You may ...

Ask the Panel from quiltaholic

I love panel quilts. They allow you to get on with quilting without having actually to make a complicated quilt and they give you scope for experimentation without worrying about messing up a quilt that took hours to piece or wasting time on a bit of calico that you don’t know what to do with when it is finished.

I also once went on a thread painting course that was a bit of a waste of time but when I started to use a longarm I realised that panel quilts were the ideal material to practise on.

On this ...

Weekly Progress: Kaleidoscope On Track With More Fabric en Route from Cheeky Cognoscenti

Anders' graduation quilt is starting to take shape on my design wall!  My goal for the past week was to get 23 of the necessary 63 block centers cut and pieced, and I pushed myself to get 8 block centers finished yesterday to stay on track with that goal.

11 inch Kaleidoscope Block Centers on my Design Wall

It's exciting to see the illusion of curved lines begin to emerge now that I have more blocks on the design wall.  However, it was SAD to take down my sampler blocks (again!) and put that project in Time Out.

In Which the Ghost of Claude Monet Wrests Artistic Control of My Kaleidoscope Quilt and Turns It Into Giverny from Cheeky Cognoscenti

Oh-Ma-Goodness; It's MARCH Already!  I'll save you the suspense and tell you right up front: Finishing all 63 blocks for my son's high school graduation quilt is my one-and-only monthly goal for March.  By which I mean, finishing the octagonal centers of all 63 blocks is my goal -- I'll be deciding on the corner triangles once all of the octagons are completed and arranged to my liking on my design wall.  

Nine 11 Inch Kaleidoscope Blocks Completed

Behold, 9 of the 63 block centers are completed and up on my design wall.  That's one row ...
