So about a decade ago, I ordered this kit from Alabama Chanin. It is still unfinished and to distract myself from starting new projects, I'm looking at it again. The original design was allover Le Moyne stars, but I've departed from that idea before. I reopened my EQ file and I've settled on this design.… Continue reading Indigo Star Quilt Revisited
I'm planning two quilts for my boy. A clamshell and a compass star quilt. I've made a start on the clamshell because it will be a smaller "baby" quilt even though he is more kid than toddler these days. I started off with this print that I bought last year and added some homespun colours.… Continue reading Clamshell quilt
Indigo Star Variations
Yeah. Because it's not enough to make the blanket according to the original instructions. And actually, because I opted to use Inklingo to create the shapes, it's already different and adding a few more of my own choices make the blanket truly my own. Right? Right!So I recreated the original pattern in EQ7 so I… Continue reading Indigo Star Variations
I should be making new clothes for myself (Liesl + Co is 25% off today!) or for the kid, or sorting my scraps, or finishing a quilt that was started for someone not in my life anymore. Should. But my sister has been waiting for her promised quilt for a decade now. So I'm prepping… Continue reading Next!
I signed up for the Curves class by Rachel through her Stitched in Color blogÂ and the Clamshell Pillow is one of the many projects in the class. I haven't had time to do anywhere near all of them, but I was determined to do at least this pillow! And definitely the Scallop Quilt. Anyway, I… Continue reading Clamshell Pillow
I’m still here!
Work has been keeping me busy and exhausted! But that didn't stop me from translating this image from a Quiltmaker email into an Inklingo-able quilt! The block measures 16" because the orange peel collection contains a 4" unit, making the center block 8". The 4" HST is available in the 12" Storm At Sea collection… Continue reading I’m still here!
One project down, two to start!
My projects keep multiplying but my free time seems to be halving. Gah! So this skirt is finally done! It basically took a year from receiving it. The facets pattern is great, but there are a lot of shapes to sew around and cut out. My next Alabama project will be to attempt airbrushing and… Continue reading One project down, two to start!
Planning Winding Ways
So I decided to add an extra row in each direction to bring the quilt up to 63" x 63" in size. This makes it a nice throw and allows the quilt to be useful beyond the crib. I am really enjoying the look of this design and I think I'll buy fabric as close… Continue reading Planning Winding Ways
I have decided! This is the next baby quilt I'll be making. Isn't it adorable!? I'll be going shopping for fabrics tomorrow. I looked at all the sales in the US, but once you add shipping, the costs just blow way out. So, off to Spotlight I go. Also, I finished cutting the last panel… Continue reading Winding Ways
Storm At Sea considerations
So here is yet ANOTHER quilt that is in the design process. I know the following things: Storm at sea and the colors red and black. I'm assuming a few other things like that it should be queen size to suit my sister's bed and that grey will be acceptable. However, a two-tone quilt could… Continue reading Storm At Sea considerations
Would a Double Wedding Ring quilt be weird for a baby quilt?
The Hunters Star baby quilt is washed and drying on the rack. I'll take some photos of it tomorrow. In the meantime, my thoughts have turned to theÂ next baby quilt for another friend. After browsing quilts on Pinterest and the internet, I decided to grab the EQ7 file that Linda has thoughtfully provided. The above… Continue reading Would a Double Wedding Ring quilt be weird for a baby quilt?
