Quilter’s Laundry Day & Giveaway!

This is a project I completed for Jen & Jan's Blog Hop.  Having quilting and blogging buddies who put these programs together is great. Jen, from A Dream and a Stitch designed this awesome mini, combining a house block with a mini quilt block.  It reminded me of my grandma's  house on the beach, so that inspired … Continue reading Quilter’s Laundry Day & Giveaway!

Moravian Star – Alison Glass Version

https://youtu.be/RXSSNXchDMM I decided last minute to spend a few days with my Mom this past week.  Before leaving, before packing my clothes, I rummaged through my EPP desk and found a pack of 2" diamond templates.  I quickly cut out 60 different diamonds of AG fabrics and put them in a baggie, along with a … Continue reading Moravian Star – Alison Glass Version

It’s Wednesday!

That means it is time for the Hexagonquilt "La Passion" Facebook group to post updates on the progress of their La Passion quilts.  For me, most Wednesdays are usually a bit of a let down.  Everyone else is making such fast progress, and here I am, still plodding along, more than two years after starting. … Continue reading It’s Wednesday!

Block 5: Caroline … Continue reading Katja Marek – February blocks

Triskele Fabric Globes

An interesting video recently came across my Facebook feed. https://youtu.be/k3Rpqofcu4s You can read Hattifant's blog post here, at Hattifant.com/category/blog.  I was hooked.  I ponied up the $5 for her patterns, and they are awesome and every bit as easy to assemble as her video demonstrates.  What immediately struck me was that I thought I could make these with … Continue reading Triskele Fabric Globes

Soft Moravian Star

Thank you to Paula Willett for showing me your soft version of the Moravian Star.  I've become addicted to this form. I used the same technique detailed in my original Moravian Star tutorial.  I used 3" diamonds, a 2 yard cut of a fabric I'm no longer in love with, and fussy cut the fish. … Continue reading Soft Moravian Star
