2018 Aurifil BOM – September

Sharon Holland is the designer of the September Aurifil block, Big Apple, and I was excited that I had not yet used red in my rainbow color order progression! I modified the pattern very slightly to keep the background white to black stripes continuous. Instead of using a 2 1/2" square for the bottom outer edges of the background behind the...

Modern Plus Sampler QAL {Small Plus Area}

Cheryl (Meadow Mist Designs) and Paige (Quilted Blooms) have us piecing together (40) small plus blocks this month in the Modern Plus Sampler QAL. With a bit of chain piecing spaced out over a few days, my collection of blocks came together. I opted to oversize my blocks and trim them down to final size per the instructions within...

Sunset Mini Mini Quilt {Patreon Reward}

I mentioned in early August in my Plaid Mini Mini Quilt post that I had a few Patreon reward mini mini quilt rewards to make. Thankfully the second patron had a bit of extra patience and we were finally able to connect at the end of the month, when I discovered their favorite colors are purple and yellow. When I evaluated...

Technical Editing

As many of you have been starting to notice, I have been doing more industry "behind the scenes" kind of work as a technical editor. It is a very natural combination of my technical / engineering background and love for quilting, and I am really loving the work. When I talk with my former engineering co-workers, instead of saying I...

Today, the Splendid Sampler II Sew Along block design is by Nadra Ridgeway (from ellis & higgs), and her block is called Tulip in Bloom. You can find the pattern and details about the inspiration behind block today on The Splendid Sampler website.

2018 Aurifil BOM – August

Rebecca Bryan from Bryan House Quilts is the designer of the August Aurifil block, Rooftops of Amsterdam, and I loved Rebecca's suggestion to use the pop of color in the block for some fussy cutting. I don't tend to have a lot of novelty prints in my stash, so I pondered what to use there for a while. And then...

Babsie {Mini Quilt Finish}

In loving memory of Babsy, Barbara Nieters Buchen. The overlapping circles at the bottom represent the connection between generations and the free-floating orange peel at the top is the separation felt in losing Babsie, the last of her generation in our families. During a week spent with family, I began hand quilting the piece in the evenings as we remembered Grandma:...

Fabric, Splendid Sampler II

Stash Acquisitions

I'm glad I thought about going ahead and getting some more fabric for my Splendid Sampler 2 blocks, because when I went to order more fabric last week, it was harder to find yardage than I had anticipated. In the end I was able to find the pieces I was looking for along with a few other prints to...
