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...

Splendid Sampler II – Tulip in Bloom

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. To me, my color palette reads a bit interesting without green or a more believable tulip color for the block,...

2018 Aurifil BOM

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...

Diagonal Cross-hatch Quilting on a Longarm {Tips}

Based on responses to my post earlier this week about my Local Fair, a few things became obvious: Quilters are visual! Adding more description (using images, photos, or pictures) on the tips I learned while quilting a diagonal cross-hatch on my longarm on Wayward Transparency would be helpful.

Splendid Sampler II – Flowering Tree

Another week and another Splendid Sampler 2 block! This week the block was designed by Amy Friend from During Quiet Time, and her block is Flowering Tree. Well, with my color palette, I'm thinking my block has more of a fall tree vibe than a flowering tree, but I love how it came together regardless! I am having a lot of...

Sherri from A Quilting Life is the designer of the July Aurifil block, the Beach Houses block, and while I think her teal colors for the block are perfect for the beach, I already had a teal block in my grouping which is turning into a rainbow. As I was pondering what color to use for the block last week,...
