Today’s guest tutorial is from Amy at Priddy Creations! Priddy Creations is a shop full of custom camera accessories! Before I share this much requested tutorial, I thought I would answer a burning question that I have been bombarded with….WHY WHY WHY would I want to share a tutorial on an item I sell for profit? A little background…I started making and selling camera straps back in January of 2008. Back then, there was only me and one other person selling the camera strap slipcovers. It was an extremely successful and rewarding venture for me and one I still enjoy and offer to customers. It helped kick start a business that I love and thrive on. With so many designers out there now offering camera strap slipcovers, the market is flooded with this particular item.

The tutorial idea actually started as a plan for an eBook for my camera strap slipcovers back in June of 2009 (I actually had to look that up…was thinking it couldn’t have been THAT long ago).

In 2012, having completed the original goal of 365 designs for the Free Motion Quilting Project, I decided to start teaching free motion quilting in a new way.

Each Wednesday a video lesson is published, and you have an opportunity to try out the ideas, then link up your progress.

Articles | McCall's Quilting. Tutorial Mock Cathedral Windows. This is sometimes called an orange peel quilt, and a few other names, too. Whatever you want to call it, it looks sort of like Cathedral Widows. Supplies: Template -- cd or plate, depending on the size you want (small plates work better than cd size). I did cd size for tutorial; it's easier to take photographs, but you will get smother rounded sides with a bigger circle (small salad plate or large soup bowl)Scissors or rotary cutter / mat for fabricQuilters see through ruler with square grids on itScissors for paperNeedle and thread if doing all by hand / sewing machine if doing all by machine / or half and halfCard stock to make square templatePencilDirections: Trace round template onto fabric and cut out (use what ever method you want, such as: trace and cut with scissors or use a rotary cutter and mat with template).

Sandpapercardboardrubber cement gluebronze circle diskpaper templatescissors for fabricscissors for everything but fabricpencil No? Well, that means you probably are a quilter that was able to benefit right off the bat with things such as the rotary cutter, mat, and ruler. The rotary cutter first appeared in 1979 by OLFA and life as a quilter has continued to get better and better each year. Tools of a trade are very important and can make life much easier, more accurate, and definitely faster.

I began my quilt life without any of the cool tools of the trade, but I wouldn’t trade this experience for anything. My first evening of class I arrived early (like over an hour early!). With pen and paper in hand, I grabbed the best seat in the room and sat there anxiously awaiting the beginning of the class. Part 3: Process. WIP Wednesday No.14. At the start of the month I wrote a To Do list for Jan and I thought as we are halfway through the month then I had better check my progress and where better to link up than Lee's WIP Wednesday! Oh and for anyone new over here, the monthly To Do list is becoming a linky party here on the first of each month. I decided 2012 is my year of being more organised so if I write a To Do list then I can keep on top of my progress each week using Lee's WIP Wednesday and hopefully show a month of finished projects and a completed To Do list at Lynne's Fresh Sewing Day.

So who is up for being more organised? I even have a button ready for grabbing in my sidebar Hope to see you back here on the 1st Feb! Now as for this months progress so far: Sew Hip Fashion Designer Competition Dress - Complete (after a lot of hard work, a few tears and some swearing!) Fingers crossed its good enough to get me into the next round! Bee Blocks ; All 3x6 blocks done and posted Write a tutorial each week for Tutorial Tuesday:

Badskirt. Japanese x and + scrappy quilt tutorial (aka the Setsuko Inagawa quilt) | badskirt. I joined another quilt bee, but my month isn't until September. I've decided ahead of time that I'm going to ask for blocks like the Setsuko Inagawa quilt from this year's Tokyo Quilt Festival. Jan was a legend and took all sorts of wonderful photos and closeups of it. It's been the buzz of flickr since January. Edit: I actively searched for the original source of this block without much luck. Luckily the internet is full of helpful people. Thanks to Amy, I now know this block is attributed to Nancy Cabot, 1938 Source: Barbara Brackman's Encyclopedia of Pieced Quilt Patterns. I couldn't find the pattern in any of our Japanese quilt books, so I decided to reverse engineer it.

Though my quilt bee month isn't until September, I said I would do a blog post about how I made the blocks. Also, my test blocks are a bit rough. Picking Fabrics Each block is made up of 7 total fabrics. In my example, I choose quite a few stripes in case this wasn't clear. Sew directly on the line you just traced. Thread Talk from my Sewing Machine #27 « Ivory Spring. November 18, 2011 by ivoryspring I thought I would show you my normal stitching schematic before we dig deeper into this feathery business. As you can see from the diagram below: 1. I work on my feathers one side at a time. I tend to have better control of how my feathers turn out. I do want to at some point work on doing the simultaneously feathers on both sides. I have done it a couple of times, but didn’t find my work satisfactory. 2. And now, concerning those individual “lobes”… I think how your feather lobes look determine the appearance of your entire feather plume.

From my own limited experience, the anatomy of a good feather plume consists of: 1. 2. 3. 4. Now, how about some real life feathers so that you can spot the aforementioned principles? I hope this is helpful to you to first diagnose why you don’t like your feathers, and hopefully begin your journey in fixing certain quirks to help you better quilt your feathers.

Hop skip jump: whole lotta quilt. This quilt has been in use for a few weeks now, so it is high time I blogged about it. I've said lots already about this, based on the one from Lotta's Handmade Living.

It was a heavy beast to quilt, as I suspected it would be, so I just went down the wonky horizontal lines route which led to only minimal swearing and quick-unpicking. The back is a remnant of striped seersucker (not sure what made me think that would be easy to baste) - I didn't have quite enough, so this little patch of scraps made its way in there, too. The front (I failed to get a half decent photo of the whole front because of it's size, but I'm sure you get the idea) is a mish-mash of a whole lot of fabric I hold dear and was having a hard time cutting - Umbrella Prints, Ink & Spindle, Cloth, Skinny Laminx, Summersville, the rest is vintage or what I had on hand.

There is a fair bit of this hemp-cotton blend in there. It's bound in calico, because it's what I had on hand and it seemed to work. I'm glad it's done.
