Piecing Instructions

Step 1 – Stitch your strips together into Strip Set A, Strip Set B, and Strip Sets C. Position two strips right sides together and align the long ...

It's All About the Face: Part 2 - Dave and Emma from A Prim and (not so) Proper Quilter

In an effort to be mindful in sharing my process with you, I'll show my progress on the projects instead of waiting to do the big reveal.

I was reading about the process pledge and getting a better understanding of it. In past blog posts I typically share the project after it's completed and talk about its journey at the same time. The posts get long-winded and it's no wonder so many people prefer Instagram over blogs. SEE THE PRETTY AND MOVE ON!

But I want a journal of my work in the hopes that someone in ...

A Rainbow Free Motion Quilting Sampler Quilt from Blossom Heart Quilts

Over the past few months, I’ve made one of my most favourite quilts to date – a free motion quilting sampler quilt. Not only do I love the colours, but I also loved the experience of making it!

I have some prior experience with free motion quilting. I was self-taught with a dash of Craftsy classes (remember those?!) and played quite a bit back then… we’re talking while in Japan, and that’s over 5 years ago now! But since then, I felt like my confidence to do anything more than a loopy meander and some swirls was practically ...

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 ...

Who is your Cheerleader? from Lisa H Calle's Blog

Yes, you heard correctly! Cheerleader. We all need cheerleaders for different aspects of our life, so I am specifically referring to your quilting cheerleader. The person that pushes you just a bit past your comfort zone, lifts you up when your quilt didn’t turn out exactly how you planned and just in general is your quilting BFF.

Let me introduce you to mine… Barbara Persing. This past year with Covid and being recently divorced and living on just my income… it was a rough year to say the least. All of my teaching engagements were cancelled so there went ...

May the Fourth Be With You from From My Carolina Home

Did you know it is Star Wars Day? I miss this most years, but this year I remembered in time! What better time to talk about Star quilts. I do have several tutorials on the blog for star theme quilts, leading off with my Patriotic Star Mini Quilt. This one is unique in that it is quilted three times, with three different motifs in three different colors.

I’ve used the Nine Patch Star often, this time in a Christmas Table Runner.

I did a pdf for the Nine Patch Star so you could calculate the number and size of ...

Fusible Webbing Tidbits from Adele Mogavero

I had mentioned in my video that I was having issues with my sewing machine. I’ve since learned it was not the sewing machine but the fusible webbing. Some fusible webbing products tends to gum up the needle, which can make the machine skip stitches. ....

Sunday Meditation: The Joy of Grandchildren from Patchwork Sampler Blog

Proverbs 17:6

The phrase “the joy of grandchildren” can be interpreted in two ways. First is the joy that grandparents have with their grandchildren. The absolute highlight of our week is the time we spend with our two little ones. It is exhausting, but we love watching them grow and learn from week to week.

The second meaning of the phrase is the inherent joy within little kids. We witnessed this kind of joy last weekend at our granddaughter’s third birthday party. This celebration was very emotional for a number of reasons. First, where did three years go? I can’t ...

Week 18 of 15 Minutes to Stitch from High Road Quilter

 


These Amalfi Coast blocks are so much fun - I really like the blues I am using - that I am extra motivated to work on them. 

2021:  Weeks 17 of 15 Minutes to Stitch

 


15 minute days this week --7 out of 7
15 minute days this year -- 122 out of 122 days
Success rate  = 100%
 

I was at 95% at this time last year. I am ahead of last year, but I will be working overtime this spring and hope to have more work this year, so I have a feeling that I will eventually fall behind. If I wind ...

What Should You Give Up? from Adele Mogavero

Little Pieces from Heart Desire Creations

Scraps have a way of sucking me in. When I finished the Can Can quilt, there was a pile of one inch Kaffe strips. Just like many other not so sane quilters, I cut them to smaller lengths – one to 3 inch strips. I’m piecing end to end, then onto paper. Why on paper? I find it helps to keep the rows from being wonky. There are 15 blocks done and the total will be determined by how long the strips last!

The last few weeks, however, I haven’t sewn much. The weather here has been amazingly beautiful ...

Bee Food, Mini Quilt Finish and Cross Stitch Start, Take Out Treat from Canadian Needle Nana

Sure sign of spring. Happy to spy this lone dandelion down by the pond...first food for the bees.

Snow yesterday and very cold today but spring is trying its best to take over. Robins are all over the place.

This nuthatch made many trips to the ground which was unusual as they normally stay on tree trunks. I think it may have been gathering material for a nest.  Our nuthatch numbers keep rising so I'm thinking they are nesting nearby.
 
I have a plan to sew table toppers for the smaller pieces of furniture I have around the ...
