The best-laid plans from The Academic Quilter

 Hi everyone! Here we are at the last weekend in July. How is that even possible? This was a very productive week for us here at the AQ household. Last weekend we decided to take down the enormous mirror that took up an entire wall in our bathroom. Seriously, it was about 8 feet by 6 feet. Huge! If you've ever wanted to watch yourself shower, this was the mirror for you! We managed to get it down, in many, many pieces, only to discover that there really wasn't a wall behind it. They had put the mirror ...

Three Cheers for the Red, White and Blue! from From the Strawberry Patch...

Inspired by the runners and table toppers that I saw on Doodlebugs and Rosebuds blog a short while ago, I decided to try my hand at some of these. I found this great patriotic border print and grabbed my 60 degree ruler. In no time at all I had these two runners and a table topper pieced and ready to go. I loaded one piece of backing fabric, sandwiched in some left over batting scraps, and

Blue and Yellow Table Topper from From My Carolina Home

When I made the blue and yellow version of To The Nines, I didn’t know when I started how big I wanted to make that quilt. I made nine patches with width of fabric strips, and ended up with a lot more than I needed. I really cannot use the other topper as it is now part of my trunk show, so another topper needed to be made.

I had plenty of yellow to sew alternating patches with the nine patch blocks.

The top went together quickly.

Now for borders, the first one is white to separate the main ...

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 ...

challenge and a finish from Making A Lather

I decided to participate in 2021 table scraps trt challenge.  I have a few table runner/ toppers that I have bought over the years, that I would like to make, but, they aren't part of any goal setting that I have been doing. It isn't part of any finishing goals ( they aren't started) or before I die goals ( I have time). They are just hanging around saying pick me, pick me. The challenge will give me a chance to think about, and, hopefully, finish a few projects.

This month, I picked an easy project that was already ...

Beginning the Christmas Panel from From My Carolina Home

Did you change your decor this weekend? I did some decorating, a bit of cleaning, and got rolling on some sewing for the holidays. I have this Christmas panel pretty much done as I’ve been working on it over the past month. I’ll break it into a couple of posts to show you what I did.

I began by cutting it up. I really don’t need a door panel, so it became a set of three table runners or wall hangings.

I auditioned fabrics to put with the truck panel first. This was the best red, and ...

Turkey and Decorations from Gray Barn Designs

Thanksgiving as a decorating holiday gets short shrift, don’t you think? This year, the turkey décor is viable for a mere 26.5 days, because in my house, the Christmas tree goes up before the leftovers have cooled.

So, I’m going to enjoy this little table top gem every moment I can. If you want to make one for yourself, here’s the pattern.

Garret X. Gobble circa 2018

Monday's Strength: Psalm 107, Part 1. Fall Fun with New Projects! Book Date. from Faith, Trust and Breast Cancer

Monday’s Strength

My spirit was deeply touched when I read these beautiful Scriptures at PeaBeas’ Photos and Scribbles.  I’ve decided to do a series on them. 


29He stilled the storm to a whisper;

Do you have storms in your life that need to “be stilled”?  I know I have, I still do and I will in the future.  Hence Psalm 46:10:  Be still and know He is God.  We can attain physically stillness via detachment or some other tool, but to still our minds is indeed another issue. 

How does one still the mind? 

At a ...

Saturday's Song: Burn the Ships. Slow Stitching: Hexagon Afghan & Christmas Surprises. Stash Report. from Faith, Trust and Breast Cancer

Saturday's Song

Here is the link to a video with the lyrics.

“Burn the Ships” by For King and Country touches my heart and aroused my curiosity as to the origin on the title.  The story behind the song is hereand is an encouragement to those who long to release the shame and guilt of their addictions.  Though “addictions” may lead one to think of drugs and alcohol, let us remember we all have addictions of one kind or another. 

However, we also have hope in Christ Jesus as Paul shares in Philippians 3:13-14.  The “it” Paul ...

GETTING SOME PRACTICE IN THIS WEEK from ATTIC WINDOW QUILT SHOP

  
Hello Quilters!  I just read Barb's blog (Bejeweledquilts by Barb) and have not gotten nearly as many quilting projects done this past week as she has, but I did manage to practice my ruler quilting and free motion quilting.  Recently, while at the Attic Window Quilt Shop, I picked up the Fiddle Dee Dee charm pack by Moda.  I love the fabric.  Then I got the book Third Time's A Charm by That Patchwork Place and decided to make the pattern Ursula.  I love how it went together, but couldn't make up my mind how to quilt ...
