New Quilting Addiction :: Hand Appliqué

By | 2017-02-06T09:17:58+00:00 July 7th, 2014|Appliqué, work in progress|11 Comments

Last week, I decided I needed a project that was just for me, and that hand work would be better than machine sewing for right now. So I went to my library, and pulled all the books I could find with some  hand appliqué projects included. I was a little shocked to find so many [...]

Happy Friday! This week has been full, and I'm excited to share my Star-Crossed quilt top with you! I made it with Botanique by Joel Dewberry, and Bella Eggshell (281). Star-Crossed is from my second book, Modern Basics II and a great project for large scale prints! Now I'm looking forward to quilting up that [...]

Tone It Down – Quilt Top

I was looking through my blog over the weekend, and realized that I never shared my finished quilt top for the #apqquiltalong project! I had a few little deadlines pop up on me and I folded up the top before I got it posted here - sorry! My quilt measures 75" x 93" - which [...]

Twisted Log Cabin – from Quilt in a Day

By | 2017-02-06T09:18:03+00:00 February 19th, 2014|review, work in progress|12 Comments

I was contacted by the Quilt in a Day office to see if I would be willing to try out a new ruler that Elenor Burns has produced. I can't resist a new gadget, and said of course! I collected jelly rolls to use, since it is super jelly roll friendly, and had a blast [...]

Please excuse my absence. . .

I've come down with a cold, and there's no one to blame but myself! I'm finally starting to feel like myself again, but have zero energy. Instead I've caught up on some email, and sat on the couch with a pretty pile of fabric. I have a pillow for my Pillow Collective tutorial, all planned [...]

Last week I shared my Quilt-along progress, and I'm excited to have even more progress to share today! I sewed up the block centers - and love the way the colors are coming together, the varied blues, with a touch of green is just right! I also did some strip-piecing, and trimmed them up for [...]

Head Down to the Finish Line

The hard part about writing a book, is not being able to share the quilts I'm really excited to be making! Over the last month, I've completed tops for 9 of the 10 projects in my next book, but I saved the most laborious for last. I wanted to be able to focus, and not [...]

Hi friends! Since wrapping up Blogger's Quilt Festival, I've been sewing non-stop. I have a book due in January, and with the holidays nearly here, I'm rushing to finish as much as I can now! Like, all of the piecing. The way I tend to work, takes over the kitchen table, and I would love to [...]
