Quick Column Quilts :: Review, Project & Giveaway!

 

I have a quick finish to share with you today! Quick_Column_Quilts_Blog_Tour_Badge

Nancy Zieman’s new book – Quick Column Quilts is full of beautiful and useful patterns for any quilter!

Quick Column Quilts - AmysCreativeSide.com

This table runner is based off of the Quilt to Give pattern in chapter 13 – I’ve admired this quilt, for a while now, and knew it was the quilt that I wanted to stitch up! I have been stitching from my scrap box lately, and knew that I wanted to make a more masculine table runner for our dining table in my Modern Neutral fabrics. Sometimes it’s a  little odd to celebrate my husband or son’s birthday with a floral runner on the table, and this will be the perfect solution. Quick Column Quilts - AmysCreativeSide.com

While there’s lots of instruction for cutting from yardage, I had a blast pulling scraps from my bin and pairing them up! Since I just had one color of sashing, I opted to have one strip between each pieced row.

Quick Column Quilts - AmysCreativeSide.com

Quick Column Quilts is a great addition to any quilting library, with 13 great patterns, Nancy has also added in her tips for making quilts, the tools we use, and she takes the time to explain why we use them! It’s beautifully put together, with stunning examples of each quilt to inspire you too! I highly encourage you to seek out this book, for yourself, or a friend that is ready to learn more about quilting.

    since being retired, I love to sew in the afternoons while catching up on tv shows that I was too tired to stay awake for the night before. I only sew on Mon-Fri. I don’t sew on the weekends, probably cause I like some kind of a schedule from my years of working.

    I like to sew all the time! Usually I make myself finish the “chores” I have to do for the day first, otherwise I’ll get so involved in sewing that there may be no dinner, or clean clothes, or that sort of thing.

    A bad day at sewing is better than no sewing at all. I love sewing any time of the day or night . . .many projects accomplished in the wee hours of the morning. Your new book looks sew fun!! Great ideas!! Thanks, Nancy!!

    I sew during the kids’ naptime, after their bedtime, or sometimes while they watch tv. It’s all basically when i can fit it in!

    I’m mostly retired so I sew during the day, usually for 3-4 hours daily. I know I’m lucky! The book looks awesome. Thanks for the giveaway.

    I work full-time, so my sewing time is in the evenings and on weekends. And since I don’t have any kids at home, I can sew pretty much whenever I want. :) Love your table runner!

    I love the look of your table runner with the solid gray offsetting the prints. I might have to steal the idea and make a quilt for my brother. I’m retired so can sew anytime I feel like it but my favorite time of day is late afternoon into the wee hours of the morning. Guess I’m a night owl.

  19. Barb N September 17, 2014 at 7:29 am - Reply

    I’d love to sew 8-5 every day! But since that’s not possible, mornings are my preferred time. The brain is fresh with ideas then! Love your masculine runner – perfect!

    Mornings definitely. As the old proverb says “she who sews at night rips in the daytime!”

    Just learning right now but enjoying the process and like sewing in the daytime when the light is best and I can see what I’m doing! I hate ripping out stitches!

  22. Mom C September 17, 2014 at 7:44 am - Reply

    I find myself sewing sometime between 11 and 5. I like to sew in the morning but there are always odds and ends to get finished before I can sit down at my machine. I can get a lot done between 3 and 5 until I have to break to make supper. I used to sew late into the night but that doesn’t work for me anymore. When I have a deadline, I can get up early and sew great before breakfast. Thanks.

  23. Mary S September 17, 2014 at 7:46 am - Reply

    I like to sew 9:30-3:00 (roughly) that is, when I’m not at an exercise class, volunteer group meetings …. I especially love “sew days” with friends.

  24. Mar Ritchie September 17, 2014 at 7:49 am - Reply

    I love to sew on rainy days but living in Arizona I don’t get many of those! So mornings and early afternoons are when I get most of my sewing done. Love the Column Quilts!

    I am retired so I get to sew when I want. Right now I have been getting ready for a retreat so have been cutting projects, pinning tops to fmq, and really not touching the sewing machine. But, I leave this morning for many days of sewing with friends.

  26. Mary Ellen September 17, 2014 at 7:58 am - Reply

    The question would better be answered “when do I NOT want to sew!” If I had my druthers, I would sew 24 hours a day. Realistically, though, I tend to sew in the evenings to wind down from busy days. There’s nothing more calming and therapeutic than the sound of a sewing machine.

  27. Christine September 17, 2014 at 8:07 am - Reply

    I like to sew whenever I can squeeze it in, sometimes in the afternoon for a few minutes after work, or on weekends. My favorite time to sew is the second and fourth Monday of every month with my sewing group!!

    I like to sew early in the day the best. The light is best and then if I get something done by the afternoon I can photograph it and then put my feet up for the evening.

  33. Donna W September 17, 2014 at 8:29 am - Reply

    Now that I am retired, I try to fit some sewing time in every day. It might be at my sewing machine in the afternoon or hand sewing at night with my husband by the TV. But, it is not as easy as you might think. It seems that when you are retired, you are just as busy if not more so. Thanks for the chance to win

  34. Karen in Breezy Point September 17, 2014 at 8:39 am - Reply

    In a perfect world, I would sew everyday! I usually sew by machine or do my cutting, etc., during the day, but I always have some type of hand work to do in the evening while “listening” to TV.

  35. Nancy September 17, 2014 at 8:39 am - Reply

    When I worked I sewed at night, sometimes all night, but now that I am retired I sew late mornings and late afternoons. Other time is spent thinking about what I will do, what the next step is in what I making.

    Evenings are my time…no other time calls to me…unless I’m finishing a gift or commission. Must admit I’ve done more quilting THIS summer than any one before-not sure why. But have had the most productive summer ever!

    Oh, I love your color choices for your runner! I’m planning a quilt for one of my sons… I think those colors, in Nancy’s column design would be perfect!
    I sew whenever I can sneak some time in (it’s my fiber therapy!)… Usually every day, in odd moments throughout the day… (If it’s been a too-busy day, I need to spend some time with sewing before I go to bed, even if it’s only to “play” with fabrics, planning and thinking about projects!)
    Thank you!

    First, I love your quilt and colors you chose. I agree, flowery isn’t a good choice for my hubby’s birthday. :-)

    I like to sew of a morning and into the afternoon. After dinner I get my house in order for the next day. Sewing is the best therapy and makes my heart happy. It has helped tremendously coping and recovering from bilateral mastectomy this past April.

    I’ve really enjoyed reading your blog and wouldn’t have known about you if not for the book tour.

    I make big quilts, lap size quilts and small wallhangings. I like to cut up scraps for 2 1/2 strips and different sizes of squares and rectangles, then I press them and put them in containers.

    I have always wanted to quilt. When I saw nancy on PBS i found a solution to easy quilting. Thanks to Nancy Zeiman I have made 14 column quilts in a very short amount of time. Hopefully I will find some extra time to try the table runner.

  52. Caroline Johnson September 17, 2014 at 12:13 pm - Reply

    I enjoy sewing as it allows me to express myself. When I sew (especially quilt) projects for others it helps me let them know I love them even while away and that I want to give them something special. If I sew for myself, it helps me say what colors and styles I like. My best work is done after household necessities are completed and I can focus uninhibited by “must do’s: My favorite work is done at night while my hubby, dog & I relax together in the living room usually embroidery or bindings.

    I think it would be more likely to find a time when I didn’t like to sew! My only down time is when I am tired. I will push on but that is when I make mistakes. My favorite time used to be early morning but now my household is quieter and early evening has become a special time. Dinner done, kitchen clean and the evening stretches out like a sunny day in Summer.

    Hi there! I have five sons, so I know how you feel…need some boy stuff sometimes. I love your use of grey and those wavy lines. I like to sew all the time, but as I am raising my two grandgirls (2 & 5), I find that daytime is best. Mornings seem to work even though I am not a morning person, and by night (when I used to sew) I am just too tired…imagine that! Thanks for this chance.

    Hi there would you mind letting me know which hosting company you’re working with?
    I’ve loaded your blog in 3 different internet browsers and I must say this blog loads a lot faster then most.
    Can you recommend a good hosting provider at a honest price?
    Thanks, I appreciate it!

    I would loooooove this book but I’m on a really tight budget right now so got my fingers majorly crossed!!!

    I’ve recently retired and am just starting to get back into quilting and sewing. But I see lots of time on the horizon and lots of UFO’s and ideas in the works so I’ll be sewing lots. This is a good book and here’s hoping I get a copy of it. Thanks. kthurn@bektel.com

    I like to sew all the time, but I typically only have the time on the weekends when I’m not at work. Thanks.

    When I sew, I like to forget I have anything else to do, and just work at it until it’s FINISHED!!! Which means I don’t do a lot of sewing, unfortunately. I own Nancy’s ‘busy woman’ & ’10-20-30′ minute books, but haven’t put the ideas into practice. Thanks for the chance to add another of her titles to my collection!

    I like to set some time on the weekend aside for my projects and its usually over a two day all day period I end up working on them!

    On the weekends -I start thinking about sewing in the morning but I don’t actually sit down to sew until late afternoons. I saw your Modern Neutrals fabric yesterday at my LQS but they only had layer cakes. Can’t wait for her to get in yardage –loved it even more in person!

    I enjoy sewing after supper during the weekdays or saturdays.

    I like to sew when the kids are at school — usually 10am-2pm.

    I love to sew when I get off work, which is mid-day for me. I don’t have very good lighting so night time is no good.

    My favorite time to sew is in the morning when the sun is shining through my sewing room window. I am filled with the warmth and inspiration of a new day! Would love to win this book!

    I like to sew in the early afternoon when the sun is streaming into my sewing room.

    I love your selection of colors and the solid between the pieced strips. I love to sew from late morning to late afternoon. Early mornings and evenings are just too crazy busy with kids activities and meals.
