Modèle de courtepointe de Camelot par broderie. Video tutorial: Buzz saw patchwork block. Friendship Star Sashing Quilt. Quiltville's Quips & Snips!!: A “Pressing” Matter! I finally got enough of the wing triangles sewn on to the string geese triangles to be able to see what my first row was going to look like.

Quiltville's Quips & Snips!!: A “Pressing” Matter!

Sewed geese into pairs… Went to the ironing board and…. Oh. My. Goodness. String quilts are like this…a lot of seams coming together and crossing when you join them to each other, making it hard to figure out which is the best way to press. When joining goose-to-goose I like to have the one on the top with its crossed seams showing so I can tell where my seam needs to be in an extreme effort not to make my goose beak-less! When I went to press….I tried my normal way of pressing the seam up toward the goose above ---but there is too much thickness both on the sides and here in the center to want to cooperate. Yes, there are two colors of bobbin thread -- I was using stuff up! Here I’ve made a little clip on either side of the main goose triangle. Press THIS way! Unit from the front. Length of snipped geese from the back --- Length of geese from the front.

Kitchen Table Quilting: striped chevrons quilt top (and tutorial)

I had some jelly roll leftovers sitting around and I needed to work on a project to help maintain my sanity, so I thought I'd put together a quick baby quilt. And while I was at it, I thought I'd share a (really) rough tutorial. 1. Choose four strips that are 2.5"xWOF. I alternated white solid with prints, but you could do whatever you want. 2. 3. Sew Scatterbrained: Solstice Medallion Quilt Pattern. Two weeks ago, I found myself aimlessly rummaging through my basket of super-special-awesome fabric scraps.

Sew Scatterbrained: Solstice Medallion Quilt Pattern

I keep most of my scraps organized into plastic containers by color, but the SSA basket is reserved for pieces that need special attention. I've been on Heather Ross and Munki Munki kick, scouring Etsy and Instagram for those hard-to-find pieces for sale in a manner not unlike...a junkie really. So that's the main contents of the basket at the moment. Search results for rainbow half square triangle. Two days of continuous rain in Melbourne was the springboard for my next project.

I needed an infusion of color in what was otherwise a dull week (in terms of weather only!). Bring out all the colorful fabric and make a whole bunch of half squares triangles and soon the possibilities are endless. I have made my half square triangle units for this project by contrasting dark (saturated color fabric) with a light (low volume) fabric, with most of the low volume fabrics being a black/white print. I was pleasantly surprised to see how many of my stashed black/white fabrics were suitable for this project although I did need to expand upon my initial fabric selection by including shades of grey. Working with these glorious colors, combined with the repetitive tasks involved in piecing these units - including the trimming - certainly brightened my week. Happy sewing, Rita. Mustlovequilts.

Take Note–The Quilt Notebook

(For selecting a Quilt Notebook see HERE.) Important Reasons to Start a Quilt Notebook It will collect all the information about your quilts in one easy to find place.It will provide YOUR quilt history.It will demonstrate your growth as a quilter.It will help you set goals for developing your skills as a quilter. First, let me clarify that The Quilt Notebook is distinct from a doodle/sketch book. The Doodle/Sketch book is for drawing, doodling and sketching any idea that pops into your head. I want to emphasis that The Quilt Notebook will contain EVERYTHING about our Quilts in Progress and our Completed Quilts...No more scraps of paper with calculations, (that we can’t find later and need to re-calculate!).

Quilt in a Day: 6 Patterns for Fast and Furious Stitchers

Some quilters take months or even years to piece and complete a quilt, while others seem to quilt at the speed of sound, moving on to a new quilting project every week. Between the time spent choosing and cutting fabrics to the hours spent piecing, it’s quite impractical to think that you can actually make a quilt in a day. Or is it? We’ve searched far and wide for the freshest time-saving quilt patterns, with tops that you can whip up in 24 hours or less!
