Week 5 of #AtoZchallenge2021Quilt (Art) from Quilting & Learning

Last week was the end of the #AtoZchallenge2021Quilt (Art). It was a great finish, even if I was less organised as the month went on. I want to thank Frédérique of Quilting Patchwork Appliqué for a wonderful challenge. I really learned a lot and am so happy to have participated. Here's a look at the last week's post.

V is for Village

This project, Amalfi Coast Happy Village was one of my first art quilts, although I didn't realise it at the time. It was made during a workshop with the owner of a local quilt shop ...

Quilt Reveal: Wild and Free from High Road Quilter

 
 Wild and Free, Just Like the Sea

 I wasn't going to participate in the Project Quilting challenge, but since it is the last one for the season, I wanted to help them finish out the year with a large turnout.

At the beginning, when I was making blocks for my Seaglass rooftops quilt, which will probably be officially called Amalfi Coast, I was only cutting the pieces for the blocks as I went along.  I didn't want to cut strings if I didn't need them. But then this week, I realized I could use leftover strings to ...

sewing saturday..... bunnies and a challenge finish from Not Afraid of Color

 

and it's Saturday again, which means it's time for this week's sewing round up! (fingers crossed I can make the computer work once again to do a post) 

I made three sizes of bunnies this week, from the free newsletter pattern at Shabby Art Boutique....but she announced this morning that the site crashed ( a lot of computer problems going around) so you can't find the pattern there at the moment. 

I used scraps, including one gorgeous little calico in green for Rainbow Scrap challenge this month... 

I've made many dolls, and having the right ...

Project QUILTING 12.6: Ab Intra from Goer

Six for six! This little quilt completes season 12 of Project QUILTING. And true to form, I waited until the last 24 hours of the one-week challenge to get started. And as you know, the later I start, the smaller the quilt gets. ;-)

This week's challenge is Ab Intra, or "from within." At first glance, I think the theme is a little intimidating. But really, there are so many options. So far, there have been a variety of deep, personal, or lighthearted submissions.

It was hard for me to roll over the one year mark of being home during ...

Quilt Reveal: Crazy Project from High Road Quilter





This week's Project Quilting challenge is to make a quilt inspired by crazy quilts. It came at a very opportune time since I had spent the week cutting up two wool jackets. The jackets were very well made and had lots of interfacing and sturdy features which made them good quality suit jackets to wear, but not really good candidates for wool gathering.  I now understand why wool is so expensive and come in small pieces. Next time I will look for skirts and pants.

The lining of the jackets were shiny and made me think they would make ...

Sewing Saturday Project Quilting and round robin from Not Afraid of Color

 

The Seeker 10" X 14"
For this week's sewing round up I have two pieces to share. The first is my Project Quilting challenge piece (the challenge was to be inspired by crazy quilting and finish within one week) I started this Friday and finished the next day by noon. My computer crashed this week so I thought I wouldn't be able to do it til dh fixed it by Friday!

Now, I do not like crazy quilts at all. I did make a challenge quilt once laying odd pieces of silk over each other, hand embroidering them ...

Project QUILTING 12.5: You’re Crazy from Goer

This week's Project QUILTING challenge is You're Crazy, inspired by the "crazy quilt" movement of the late 1800s. I honestly hesitated a bit about participating, because I've become more aware of ableist language and I've tried to edit the word crazy out of my everyday vocabulary. Ableism is defined as discrimination or social prejudice against people with disabilities based on the belief that typical abilities are superior. It includes the use of ableist words, many of which people don't realize have an impact on people with disabilities. If this isn't a concept you're ...

My Quilting Week from High Road Quilter

 

 

I've made a lot of progress this week, fifteen minutes at a time. The Dust off An Old Book Blog hop is happening again this year, and I have signed up. This year, I decided to dust off my oldest quilt book The Romance of the Patchwork Quilt in America.  There are plenty of quilts I want to make in this book, but since I have limited time, I want to make a one block quilt, and decided that applique would be easier.

I chose a design, and had to dust off another book to get the pattern. The ...

Quilt Reveal: Visit India from High Road Quilter






This is my third quilt for this year's Project Quilting Challenge. This week's theme is Virtual Vacation.

I have some fun fabrics that I wanted to use, and they would allow me to make the quilt without a lot of embellishment. I found a photo I liked, and since the letters are somewhat small, I decided to use fusible applique. In the last two challenges, I pinned the pieces and sewed them down without using fusible. I liked the surprises that get formed when I don't use a fusible.  I also like not having to spend money ...

Sewing Saturday... the tropics from Not Afraid of Color

 Welcome to the tropics...

It all started with the Project Quilting challenge to interpret a vacation.... make a quilt in one week!

The problem is not lack of ideas as I wanted to interpret about 6... One morning as I had my first cup of coffee I went to youtube to see what meditative drawing was about. As I listened to Cher talk of mindful drawing, I pulled out some scrap paper and my new pen set and started doodling. Layers of colors in lines produced this...

When it was done I was astonished! I love it! I've had ...

Project QUILTING 12.3: Virtual Vacation from Goer

Ya know how I said I was going to start early in the week for this week's challenge? Nope. Here's my Saturday quilt, finished in the wee early hours of Sunday morning.

I taught the first half of my All About Angles workshop on Tuesday. I can't teach a workshop without being inspired by my students to create another version on one of my techniques. I don't always have time to carry that out, but this week's Project QUILTING challenge was the perfect opportunity. This week's theme is Virtual Vacation. We were asked to ...

Dreaming of a Vacation Art Quilt: Project Quilting from Mulberry Patch Quilts

We’ve got mounds of snow outside, temps below zero, and covid all keeping us at home. So when Project Quilting announced it’s challenge theme of Virtual Vacation, I was on board! It was so nice to dream of a vacation while thinking about a quilt to make for the contest.

You’d think I’d be dreaming up a vacation to Florida, sunny Hawaii, or some other place warm. But I happened to see a photo on Pinterest of the Bayfield Wisconsin area in our beautiful northern Wisconsin winter, and it reminded me how much I miss our ...

Quilt Reveal: Kamaria from High Road Quilter

 


When I made the Project Quilting challenge quilt last week, I almost switched from making a light bulb to making a face.I have been admiring Freddy Moran and SewJean Impey's faces and have been wanting to make my own series for a while.

This week's Project Quilting challenge is about fussy cutting fabric. I think I can easily use the challenge to finally make a face.  I fussy cut the eyelashes, the lip and the shirt, but wanted to make it even more obvious with the birds.

I used a quarter yard of fabric as the background ...

sewing Saturday.... two challenges met! from Not Afraid of Color

 

"Dancing on Air"
For this week's sewing round up, I have two challenges to show you and one painted art piece. 

I took on the Project Quilting challenge this year, at       

We have a prompt, this time to fussy cut, each time and one week to complete it! I have a Mary Englebreit collection of fabrics,

and I wanted another mantle quilt for February (Valentine's day) so Dancing on Air was made!

The borders came from the tiny scrap box, the flowers from the fusible scrap box. To make those, I fused two fabrics together, and cut flowers ...

Project QUILTING 12.2: Fussy Cut from Goer

This quilt was kind of three and a half years in the making, and also less than a day. This week's one-week Project QUILTING challenge is Fussy Cut! Like the last PQ challenge I challenged myself to a modern traditional design using a traditional block as a jumping off point. The most popular response to my instagram poll indicated Churn Dash as the favorite traditional block. That made me think of one of the first quilts I ever made.

I planned to start early in the week. (Don't I always?) And then I found myself without a stitch ...
