Friday Finish, WIPs, and UFOs Roundup

I’m home!!!! Time to have a quilting party!!!  Seriously so excited to be home and not traveling for work for the next two weeks.  Maybe my quilting life can get back to normal.  I decided to do a roundup this week to get my head wrapped around everything that is on my WIP (works in progress) or UFO (unfinished object) lists.  But let’s start with...

Happy First Day of Fall!

Autumn is my FAVORITE season of the year!  Too bad it’s almost 90 degrees today.  I’ve been so wiped out by my day job these last few weeks, I feel like all the quilting goals I’ve set for myself have been overly aggressive.  It seems like the only thing I’ve mentally be able to do is sew on binding.  I also apologize I’m behind on...

Fusible Grid Madness aka Tutorial 9

Fusible Grid Madness aka Tutorial

I finished the Mario Quilt this week!  I used fusible grid to make this process really quick and painless: Fusible grid is a thin piece of interfacing that has iron-on adhesive on one side and grid lines printed on the other.  There are different brands of fusible grid, and it comes in different grid sizes.  For this quilt, I used a 2″ fusible grid from...

Perspective

First, I’d like to thank everyone that gave me their thoughts on how to get over my quilter’s block. I think Pattern 103 is just going to go on hold for a little bit as I work through it.  I apologize in advance if this post gets to be too personal.  Last Wednesday, one of my good friends I’d fallen out of touch with in...

Paper Piecing Tutorial 6

Paper Piecing Tutorial

Today, I was going to talk about the design process for this Diamonds quilt I made for the Maker’s Birthday Bash swap.  However, I realized it might be better to talk about how to paper piece first before going into designing a paper piecing pattern! I’ll discuss the design process of this quilt in 2 weeks after it’s in the mail to my partner!  It’s...

Broken Lattice Pattern Release Day!

Today’s the day!  Pattern #102 (called Broken Lattice) is now released as a FREE PDF Pattern on Craftsy! (Free for a limited time!) I’m really excited about this pattern because it showcases the fabric and colors really well.  This quilt is a beginner and precut friendly pattern with either 2 Jelly Rolls or 1 Honey bun for the 2 sizes.  The full size quilt finishes...

Why I say No. 1

Why I say No.

Saying no and my reasoning behind it is something I’ve wanted to talk about for a while…people I know all think everyone is getting a quilt for a present.  There are many articles that have been written on how to say no as a crafter since we all feel that nagging guilt when someone you know and love asks you to make them something whether...

Is it Spring yet?

I hope everyone had a great holiday and spent it well with friends and family.  It’s this time of year right after the holidays where I am over the snow and wish it were Spring.  The only thing that is nice this year is being off of work the week between Christmas and New Year.  Lots of quilting going on in my house with lots...

Happy Thanksgiving Week!

It’s Turkey Day week!  I can’t believe the holidays are among us! I figured I should probably do some Christmas quilting in addition to the Cozy Christmas quilt.  I’ve wanted to make a Cathedral Window Christmas Stocking for months now so that is my Thanksgiving holiday.  I can’t wait to see how it turns out. Anyway the Blog Hop last week was super fun! If...
