Quilted Rainbow Wrist Cuff {Project Quilting 15.5}

Whew, this week's prompt for Project Quilting stumped me for a little bit: Wearables. RULE ONE: your project must be wearable, or have been made from previously worn items, or have another connection to clothes, shoes and fashion accessories. I still wanted to make a quilted object, but I don't really make wearable things. Then I looked down at my left...

Time Expands {Project Quilting 15.4}

I don't remember when or where I picked up this mantra, but when things get busy, I repeat to myself, "Time expands when needed." I was really inspired by the Project Quilting 15.4 prompt (hourglass) and my solid scraps, and I managed to piece, quilt, and bind a 35" x 45" quilt in under 48 hours. I'll be heading...

Project Quilting 15.4 – Hourglass

I was ready yesterday for the Project Quilting 15.4 prompt, and I was excited enough about it that I might have bit off more than I can finish before I need to head to QuiltCon this week. The prompt is Hourglass, and I pulled out my solid scraps and got busy. It's almost 10pm here, and I stopped sewing at...

Inside Out {Project Quilting 15.3}

I feel like the Project Quilting Season 15 prompts keep getting better each week! The theme this week is Inside Out: Some part of your project must thematically or literally be inside out. I have honestly been thinking about a project that exposes the seams for years (apparently since February 2015 when I fell in love with the backside of the...

Sky Color Mini {Project Quilting 15.2}

When I took a look yesterday afternoon, I was very excited by the Project Quilting 15.2 challenge theme: Sky Color. We are to take inspiration from the colors of the sky, but exclude or use less than 10% of the usual blue. I knew *exactly* what photograph I wanted to use as my inspiration: I snapped a quick photograph of...

Bird on a Nest Placemat {PQ15.1 Bird House}

The first prompt for Season 15 of Project quilting was shared on Sunday, January 7th: Bird House. Sunday was a 20 hour travel day for me, so I remembered to look up the prompt sometime mid-day on Monday. Since my first Season 14 project last year was to make a whole cloth quilted placemat, my first thought when I...

Project Quilting 14.6 {Conquer a Fear}

The final Project Quilting Season 14 prompt is "Conquer a Fear". I sat and pondered the prompt for a while on Sunday when the prompt was released. I'm not particularly afraid of any quilting techniques, piecing methods, or colors. Though I used to be hesitant about curves and using pink or brown, so I am definitely proof that the...

Project Quilting 14.5 {Not a Square}

When the prompt came out on Sunday for Project Quilting, Sew Not a Square, I knew immediately what I wanted to do: I wanted to create a baby sized quilt using improv curves. I went to my scraps and pulled out my solids that ranged from red/orange through teal. I immediately fell in love with the idea of the quilt...

Project Quilting 14.4 {A Novel Project}

This week for Project Quilting, we were tasked with being inspired by a book we have read. When I worked full time as an engineer, I was an avid reader. I would devour books in the evenings as an escape from the stresses of the work day. I have fond memories of long hours spent in a bath soaking...

Project Quilting 14.3 {54-40 or Fight}

When the prompt for PQ 14.3 came out on Sunday (54-40 or Fight), I was putting the finishing touches on a quilt that I will share with you next week. I wasn't sure I'd have time to participate, and the prompt's reference of the traditional 54-40 or Fight quilt block didn't immediately spark anything for me. But it was...

Project Quilting 14.2 {Pink Tint}

I was ready on Sunday when the second Project Quilting prompt was published. The number one goal this week is that some shade of pink must dominate the project. Well, off to my pink print bin I went... I picked out 9 prints from my bin that graduate from light to dark in value. Then I paired them with a...

Project Quilting 14.1 {One}

Today kicks off the 14th season of Project Quilting. I have watched others participate for years (and Quilting Jetgirl is and has been a sponsor for Project Quilting), but I have never participated myself. I know, how have I not made something before?? Well, when the prompt for PQ14.1 came out today, I knew it was time to jump...
