Vacation

While I won't be leaving home, I will be taking a break from posting and interacting on social media starting tomorrow, Saturday, February 12th, through Sunday, February 27th. The Planview Quilt Along will still move forward on its schedule, and I'll be around enough to answer any questions that pop up about it. This break is all about me doing...

Sesen Bonus Quilt {Pieced Top}

Last week, knowing that I would be working on getting all the blocks sewn together for the Sesen Bonus Quilt, I decided to run a few polls in my Instagram stories allowing people to vote on the layout for the top. I was surprised that the majority of people voted for Option B. A and B are very similar, but...

Sesen Bonus Quilt {First Block}

Crazy as it may sound, I am thankful for my seam ripper. If at first you don't succeed, try, try again. I chain pieced the center four-patch of quarter circle blocks for all 12 blocks, and they came together just fine. But when I sewed on the bottom border for my test block, it looked a little bit funny when...

Sesen Bonus Quilt {Trimming}

Short and sweet for my update today: I was able to get all the Sesen Bonus Quilt 5½" quarter circles trimmed square. This is the pile of trimmings, turned into one #FriendlyFabric Monster. I like the way the monster appears to be leaving a trail of lint and dust behind it as it sweeps across my cutting mat. I used...

Sesen Bonus Quilt {Chain Piecing}

I keep thinking to myself, tomorrow I'll have more time to sew. But somehow life continues to add surprises and new things for me to focus my attention on. At this point I should know better, but ever the optimist, I do keep thinking, "tomorrow!" After all my prep work last week, I was able to sit down and chain...

Sesen Bonus Quilt {Cutting and Prep}

One of my favorite aspects of piecing Curve Star Blocks and Inset Curve Stars are the large scraps that are left over. As I was piecing Sesen, I set aside the large Kumquat and Coral scraps knowing that I'd be making a bonus quilt using them soon. In early November (I thought it was just a month ago, wow,...

Recolor App for Digital Quilt Mockups

I have been looking for an option to allow quilters to be able to easily make digital quilt mockups of Quilting Jetgirl patterns. There are several great apps that are available, but most of the apps I have found require the designer to pay monthly fees in order to host their patterns on the site. And honestly, at this...

Old School BOM {Finished Quilt}

I had a really productive week last week which set me up for finishing up my Old School BOM quilt over the weekend. I'm really amazed that it's January 3rd and I'm sharing my first quilt finish for the year! I really like how all the Carolyn Friedlander prints work together in the blocks, and I opted to go for...

13 Block Lap Size Quilt Tutorial {Old School BOM Final Layout}

Because we made 2 blocks in April during the Old School BOM, I wanted a layout that would accommodate all 13 blocks that were made during the Old School Block of the Month. This layout is a very straight forward solution to having 13 different blocks that finish at 12" square, so I thought I'd share what you'd need...

And just like that, the Old School Block of the Month is wrapped up! This month, Sherri Falls from This and That Patterns released a delightful block, Christmas Blossom, to wrap up the year. The only green that I had enough to use for the block was a bit lighter than I would have ideally liked, but overall I really...

Sesen {Finished Quilt}

I had originally thought that I would make this second version of my Sesen design back in June, but then life happened. I'm actually really glad that making the quilt got delayed. Due to other work this year, I opted to change how the pattern is written which makes the quilt come together so much better. I will be...
