Jul 02: Love these panels I picked up over the weekend at Ye Olde Forest Quilt Shop. Got the batik for border &/or backing. Thinking checkerboard interleaving the tan and black blocks. Need to play...
Jul 03: Just ordered a total of 3 tan & 3 black panels. Want a quilt or wall hanging or pillows? Let me know. Will post ideas soon.
Jul 11: Play in EQ7 to get rendition.
May 20: Been hoping to make this quilt for awhile. Made the mistake of stopping in at the local quilt shop just to say hello. Got me thinking deeper about fabrics. Contrast to make the flag (not the borders) "wave" is the key.
Jun 13: Settled on some fabrics. Wanted more contrast but this will work. Ordered Andover Stars Navy Fabric. I will piece or paper piece the stars if I can perfect it.
Jun 17: The navy fabric is here so I am all to piece when I get/make the time. Working on my star. Found a paper pieced star pattern I like.
Jun 14: Bought the project.
Jul 14: Got the first 2 blocks in the mail & all the coordinating fabrics for sashing, borders & backing.
Jul 16: Never done a BOTM project. I am going to try to do this one month by month starting this evening. Also my first paper piecing. Finished the paper piecing part.
Jul 17: Cut the squares in 1/2 square triangles & pressed. Cut off the dog ears & removed the paper. Layout out the 2 16" blocks & started sewing the rows together.
Jul 21: Have a few minutes to continue sewing the rows together.
Ye Olde Forest Quilt shop has moved across the street more or less. Solicited to help, we had fun nonetheless while tolerating the heat, the work, the chaos, the meal breaks, did I mention the heat?, the concrete floors, the water--lots and lots of cold water. :Slowly things came together for the most incredible sale one could imagine. Batiks, grunges & other Moda bolts all on sale for ridiculously low prices plus an extra % off for end of the bolt. Patterns, Anita Goodesign CDs, needles, books, thread, so much more I can't begin to cover it all.
Fabric I picked up includes
AH! The sale has been extended all week
Occasionally I buy fabric if the price is super right like $5 yard & gorgeous. Here is my limited stash. If you can use any of these, let me know. The same is true of other Planned Projects. Eventually I hope to get around to them but if you see something you like, let me know.
Apr 12: Joyce asked if there was fabric with Scriptures on it. I found this panel & been playing with layout options to show her. If she likes it, fine, If not, I've had some fun.
Apr 13: Fabric is on the way. Just ordered the teal for borders.
Apr 17: All the fabric came in today. Bought a bit of border sashing since I can't use the top & bottom of the panels.
This is a modification of a quilt posted on MSQC. I turned the blocks on point.
The Quatrefoil Quilt: Easy Quilting Tutorial with Jenny Doan of Missouri Star Quilt Co
Feb 13: I learned a new quilting word today that is actually quite common--Quatrefoil. The fabric used here grabs me whenever I dare to enter Sew Original quilt shop.
Feb 14: Started off with a horizontal quilt layout but like the on-point rendition much better for these fabrics.
Dec 05-16: I love doing this every year. Above is what I have in my stocking. You can see all the 12 days at Ye Olde Forest on Facebook.
Jun 05: You know how one search for something specific leads to something else & so on? Well, that happened to me yesterday...again. I was searching for logos about LIFE & kept finding tree of life items & all sort of lesser "art".
Jun 08: Some fabric is here. The panel is on the way.
Jun 10: Panel is here. It is not what I expected (looser weave than regular quilting quality fabric) but it is beautiful & will be fine.
Dec 29: Been wanting to try a Bargello. When I saw this on the wall at the local quilt shop (all I needed was one strip to have enough binding for my Wimpy quilt), my mathematical mind couldn't resist. Of course they had kits with the same fabrics so I paid way too much even at 20% off, may go insane trying to follow the detailed instructions (Yikes!) but I so want this on my cabin living room wall over the TV.
