Sunday Stash: QuiltCon!

One of my goals for fabric shopping at QuiltCon was to find fabrics to use in a baby quilt for my cousin. My mother and I will be collaborating on the quilt together, and she has chosen to use my Tessellated Leaves pattern to piece together the quilt top! The nursery colors are peach, teal, and white, and this...

2014 Finished Quilts, Quilted Placemats

Tessellated Leaves Placemats

I was contacted in early December by a friend wondering if I had time to make a set of 4 placemats for her by Christmas. And since she needed to ship the placemats, that really meant they needed to get done in a week and a half. Fortunately, I had no Christmas crafting / sewing plans of my own,...

Tessellated Leaves {Flimsy Finish}

I finished piecing together Tessellated Leaves this morning. I really love how it came together! Photographing this large quilt is a bit of a challenge. At 104ʺ wide by 116ʺ long, I wasn't sure that I even had a space in my home where I could lay it out flat, but as you can see below, I found a...

Call for Pattern Testers {Tessellated Leaves}

April 2024 UPDATE: I am not currently using pattern testers as part of my pattern release process because I am unable to pay testers to fairly compensate for their time and experience. I am looking for quilters who would be willing to test the Tessellated Leaves quilt pattern for me. I hope to get enough interest to have between 2 and...

Tessellated Leaves – Two Thirds {WiP}

I have just finished piecing 6 of the 9 rows that make up the main body of Tessellated Leaves, bringing the progress up to two-thirds of the way complete. I just love how the colors are blending together. I selected 36 fabrics for this quilt, and I am done using 20 of them. It feels great to be able to clear...

{break}

I dropped "the beast" (my sewing machine) off for service again today. Cross your fingers for me that the new hook mechanism helps. No sewing machine coupled with current life events and a short trip out of town this weekend means that life is far from normal for me at the moment. I will hopefully be able to get back...

Tessellated Leaves – One Third {WiP}

I have pieced one third of the Tessellated Leaves quilt top (3 rows). The rows went together very nicely, and I have only had to go back and replace one mis-made HST along the way so far. I taped the completed third up as high on my wall as I could reach (standing on my kitchen chairs), and I...

Fabric Prep and a Giveaway!!!

It took 6 hours, but I have all the fabric prepared to layout the quilt top for Tessellated Leaves! Yeah! I spread out the work over 2 days, but my lower back is still letting me know that I stood hunched over my cutting board for 6 hours. The aches are nothing a bit of gentle stretching and some yoga...

WiP Wednesday {10/15/2014}

This week I have an update for 4 different projects. How is that for multi-tasking? Let me tell you, it is kind of over whelming for me... but at the same time it is fun and gratifying to see progress (even small progress) on each project. 1. Cocoa Leaf Drum Lamp Inspired Queen Sized Quilt Things have progressed along quite nicely...
