Pressing Like a Pro 1. PRESS, DON’T IRON Are you confused about the difference? Ironing involves moving the iron while it is in contact with the fabric, which can stretch and distort fabrics and seams. Pressing means picking the iron up off the surface of the fabric and putting it back down in another location. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6. 7. 8. 9. 10.
Free Quilt Patterns quilt as you go |quilt-along| part one I'm soooo excited you all are so excited to do this quilt with me! I'm also very excited to make a queen sized quilt! I never thought I'd be able to start and complete a quilt larger than a lap-size on my own, since quilting a monster quilt is not what I would consider fun. With this method, not only can you make a monster quilt top, but, you will be able to quilt is as you go and not have to send it out to the long arm quilter. Before we begin, I want to touch on how the quilt will be assembled since I've had soooooooo many questions about that aspect. the books' directions of sewing the blocks together through both the fabric and batting layers, pressing the seams open, then once all the blocks are together and the quilt sandwich is made, stitching in the ditch around each block, *and then using some wool fibre for ties in the middle and corners of each block. Ok, so all that being said, are you ready? Quilt as you go |quilt-along| part one: gather, sort, cut, mark Yay! ~Penny
Quilt Patterns - Beginner patchwork quilt patterns and quilting lessons Cherry House Quilts: Scrap Quilt Along As you may have read over here my little Melissa was involved in a freak medical accident, one worthy of a freakish medical show on TLC. Poor little thing required emergency surgery, and her souvenir was a 6'' vertical incision on her tummy. She is home in Houston now; I went to care for her for a few days before she was well enough to travel, I did her laundry, shipped home a 100 lbs of school books (she missed her finals, and will now have to make them up). I was finally able to bring her & her little cat Minkee home...is she a quilters' daughter or what? That is why I have been away, and have been unable to post :-( Consequently no post, and no update on the Scrap Quilt Along. This trauma with Melissa has been so difficult, and upsetting...there is no way to make sense of the whole event. Alright, I've cried on your collective shoulders, and I thank you! Thank you my friends, Cherri
Coffin Star Quilt Block and Quilt Pattern Sew the Quilt Block Although the illustration shows a scrappy quilt block, you can make the sixteen-patch as scrappy or orderly as you desire. For an orderly block, choose as few as two contrasting fabrics and alternate them from row to row. Or, assemble strip sets as shown above and then cut segments from them to create ready-made rows for the block. Strip pieced scrap quilts are doable -- instead of using long, selvage-width strips, construct more sets from shorter strips, varying fabrics as much as possible in each set. Patch-by-Patch Assembly of the Center Unit Cut sixteen 2-5/8" x 2-5/8" squares (use at least two different fabrics, or go as scrappy as you like). Or, Assemble Several Blocks Strip Piecing Techniques Think about your needs:You will need four rows for each quilt block Each row has four squares (four strips of fabric required) Each strip in a strip set should be 2-5/8" wide You'll cut 2-5/8" segments from the completed strip set Sew Corner Triangles to Center Patchwork

Quilt Dad: Country Cabin | a free pattern! Allow me to go back a few months to my time in Minneapolis. The first session of the first day of my very first quilt market was a "schoolhouse" session by none other than designer extraordinaire Bari J. Bari was debuting her new fabric line "Country Lane" and, though I had already been following Bari for a bit on Twitter, we hadn't really connected personally before market. Fortunately, I was sitting with Scott Hansen who was already a Bari-buddy, and he brokered an introduction. Country Lane really made an impression upon me upon first sight. I was really drawn to the classic combination of navy blue and red, and the touches of aqua, violet, and gray lent the collection a traditional yet unique personality. I have to admit, I had something totally different in mind when I received the fabric -- namely, a doll quilt with some raw edge applique. But why stop at a mini quilt? And I wrote this tutorial with all of you beginning sewers in mind. Here's a shot of the final quilt:
