I've had the pedal to the metal all last week stitching up this star top. I used the wonky star tutorial here but instead of giving my stars wonky points I did even ones. I added the wonkiness when I placed the blocks into my quilt instead (does that make sense?), just to ring those ch-ch-changes. I'm liking how the colours played out in this one, it started out as a *****massy quilt but I think it turned out with a bit more year round useability than I thought it might. little superstar quilt top - comfortstitching little superstar quilt top - comfortstitching
Tutorial - wonky diamond log cabins — Surrounded by Scraps Tutorial - wonky diamond log cabins — Surrounded by Scraps A few months ago I came across this photo on Flickr, by Jill (falling for pieces). Ever since I spotted those blocks it's something that's been on my to-do list. And, as March is my month for the Friends + Fabric stash bee, I figured this is a great block to play around with, and hope that my bee mates think so too! So, a few days ago I wrote Jill and asked her if she had worked from or made up a tutorial for her blocks, and if not, whether she would mind my posting them for this bee.

City Windows Table Runner City Windows Table Runner Finished Size: 14" x 30" Seam Allowance: 1/4" unless otherwise stated We are very excited to be sharing our first recipe on the Bake Shop! City Windows is a versatile runner that works great with any fabric style.

You’ll want to keep this pattern on hand as you check out all the new Moda lines.

Laptop / Kindle / I-Pad Sleeve Tutorial

In case you missed my tutorial in , I wanted to share my Laptop / Kindle/ I-Pad Sleeve Tutoiral with you. Gift giving season just around the corner and what better way to show someone you care than with a custom laptop sleeve. This pattern can be made for any size laptop, Kindle, or I-Pad by adjusting the measurements accordingly. I used girly fabric here, but you could definitely make this more "manly" by using a more masculine print or perhaps even some wool suiting material.
Sometimes the patterns for quilts blocks lend themselves to glass panels quite nicely. In addition, its fun to have your fabric quilt accented by a stained glass panel hanging in a nearby window. Almost all quilt blocks can be customized for stained glass. These quilt block patterns can be made either way or both, or can be used for stencils.

Summer runner Summer runner I finally dusted off my sewing machine and made this summery table runner for a gift using a charm pack and a half yard of white fabric. The fabric is Treasures and Tidbits. To make this quick runner cut 160 squares 1.75" x 1.75", and pick out 40 – 5" squares or use a charm pack.
This simple 6 inch by 9 inch (finished size) block was influenced by the proportions of the golden rectangle. It showcases the fabrics used and/or the quilting design. It's quick and easy construction makes it a good choice for a last minute gift or a quilt-in-a-day project. For the June 2011 Block Lotto, we are making blocks in an analogous colorway of green-blue-violet, including one green, one blue and one violet fabric in each block.

Quilts + Color I had a wonderful day yesterday. My friend Robbie Payne came over and I got to see all her latest work. It is fantastic. Unfortunately I didn’t take any pictures but you can see her work on her blog. We went up to the clubhouse where Nancy Burkhalter already had our table for lunch.
I Dance in Circles Making this quilt felt a little bit like dancing. It is full of color and movement, and just the right touch of sexy. But don't be scared of all those curves; I assure you -- not a single pin or template was used in their construction.
Miter Binding at a Corner of the Quilt Fold the unsewn tail of quilt binding straight up, positioning it so that its right edge is parallel with the next side of the quilt to be bound. Coax the lower edge of the strip to form a 45-degree angle (top left illustration). Fold the binding down, leaving the top of the fold flush with the edge of the quilt top behind it and its raw edge aligned with the next side of the quilt.

I’m so blown away by all the wonderful comments on my string quilt, now aptly named ‘Kaleidoscope’ (many thanks to Kerri who was the first to suggest it, followed by 9 others of you who had the same thought!) I think it’s just perfect. And now, a quick tutorial – I had a few requests for a tutorial on making this type of quilt, so I figured I’d oblige (it’s the least I can do, right?). This shows the paper piecing method, which is my preferred method. To start, you’ll want to decide on the size of your blocks. For the Kaleidoscope quilt, my blocks were 11″ square.
