Virtual sewing days are the BEST from Crazy Quilter on a Bike!


It's going to be a LONG day today. I did not sleep well at all. I heard some terrible news about a friend's son - I'll be attending a virtual funeral today. At one point, I woke up with tears streaming down my face. That was after I finally got to sleep. And Murphy, who gladly welcomes everyone into our house without so much as a squeak (OK - that's not entirely true), decided to alert us to animals in the backyard - not once, not twice, but THREE times. So if I fall asleep -you'll know why ...

Saying Good-bye from Crazy Quilter on a Bike!

 I have two posts this morning. The second post, which you'll find right after this one, is the last call for class sign-ups for this year's ongoing classes. The clubs are full. Well, as full as I'm going to let them get. I believe I've been in touch with all the clubs except the machine embroidery and the EQ8. I've made the distribution lists - I just need to write the verbiage. 

When I was sorting through some of M's old school stuff, which is still hanging around in the office, I discovered a folder ...

Monday Making from Love Laugh Quilt

I was very happy to work on this happy scrappy quilt this week.
The block I call “square dance” and I love the way the strips of fabric twirl around.
And, of course, the fact that it's VERY scrappy makes me smile.

I also made a few scrunchies for the girls in my family.
I made just ONE out of velvet....and think I may make some more with some
Fancy or unusual fabrics!
You can probably guess my stash gives me a few options.
Wink. wink.

I pulled out some stripes and started this little quilt.
Stripes are ...

Barn quilt pattern to make with fabric from Pieced Brain

Barn quilt pattern to make with fabric

Here is a free Barn Quilt pattern to make with quilting fabric and take on your next road trip as you look for barn quilts of the wooden kind! Wait till you see the fabrics on this bright and bold quilt…

Barn Quilts

I designed the pattern “Barn Quilts” for the amazing Landscape Stripes collection by Timeless Treasures. The quilt measures 50″ x 62″ and the blocks finish at 12″. It uses very simple paper piecing with the stripes of each fabric adding dimension and texture to each block.

If you are new to paper piecing, or need a refresher ...

Me Made May Aurifil Artisan Challenge: Blackwood Cardigan from Goer

The thread featured in this post was given to my by Aurifil.

Seven years ago, when they were small, I started making garments for my children. They were fun little projects and much faster than making and finishing a quilt. These clothes were all made out of quilting cotton, though once I made a satin skirt for a friend's daughter. Quilting cotton is easy to sew with.

For years now I've been wanting to make garments for myself. In August of 2017, I started listening to the new, weekly Love to Sew podcast. Co-hosts Helen and Caroline are ...

A Quilter Can Always Change Their Stripes from Quilted Joy

We’ve all seen jelly roll quilts. The precut 2 ½” strips are super easy to use and come in so many great colors. A jelly roll race is always fun, but these longarm machine renters have brought us some quilts that are a little different. These ladies prove there can be more to stripes than just strips.

Carol Changes Her Stripes

Carol shows off her ombre stripes quilt after renting a longarm machine at Quilted Joy

This quilt from Carol is a perfect example. It is literally just stripes of fabric sewn together, but the artistry is the way they were cut and lined up. Obviously, Carol got her hands on a whole bunch ...

Birthday Banner & Cake Card from Scraps of My Life

Welcome back!

Today I'm sharing a recent card make for a friend's little girl, who turned six in March.  I love the colour-saturated Simple Stories birthday kits so I whipped up a quick little colourful card to put in with her gift.

Some fun polka dots and stripes, a little doily to soften some of the bold colours and hard edges and some die-cuts in the form of the cake and banner.  I popped some left-over red pearls from my Christmas cards onto the cake for a little embellishment and then stamped 'celebrate' across the bottom.

Next challenge ...
