Good Mornin' Yesterday was a lovely day of nothingness. Well a little something but it seemed like nothing with everything that has been happening. All boxes to be shipped are packed and all the paperwork to the shipping company was finished. Then we had nothing to do but wait for the shipping account number to be assigned (paperwork needs to be reviewed). So we all vegged for the rest of the day. Sleep. Eat. Veg. Sleep again. We had a lovely do nothing day. A little sewing happened. Some game playing happened. A few tears happened as reality happened. And laughter happened. And now coffee. Who needs a cup so this day can begin to happen? #mickeydepre#mdquilts#quilt#quilting#goodmorningcoffee#coffeeismydrug
As a follow-up to my Monday post, here’s my ‘Spacetime Continuum’ block in all the colorways I’ve ever done it in (including the one that maybe didn’t turn out so good). Do you guys think I should expand this block design into a larger project? Which colorway do you like best? (P.S. I’m doing my class, Hexatopia, all about this crazy pieced-hexagon stuff @gothamquilts in March. More info on their website!) -R 🦆🐸👁💀 #hexatopia#quilting#sewing
Our Nana taught us to sew/quilt during a visit a few years ago and it's changed my life. Sewing is my Happy Place. Finally a creative outlet that I am actually good at! Thank you, Nana, and thank you @jwirons for another beautiful piece. 🧡 What do you think @fiskarsamericas? #tattoo#jobstopper#brotherfromanothermother#sewing#quilting#fiskars
CHARITY PROJECT TIPS: We received some great feedback on our surgery dolls. Catherine Gillund (multiple doll photo) shared, "I just finished 6 Hospital Dolls and found that the clothing patterns to be too big, but gradually made a better fit." Then Amy Mitchell shared the additional photos and shared the following tips, "These helped to make it go a little faster and easier...Print and cut out your paper pattern. Using a pencil, pen or disappearing- ink pen trace pattern onto the wrong side of the fabric. Pin top and bottom of fabrics together and sew at 1/4" seam. Use a slightly smaller stitch than you would normally sew with so seam stays closed more when stuffed. We recommend stitching crotch seam twice to reinforce it. Trim doll slightly inside the traced lines so they don't show through when turned right side out. Just make sure to not trim too close to the stitching line. Clip, turn and stuff." . Thanks, ladies...we appreciated the feedback!! Hope everyone is busy putting more of these wonderful surgery dolls together to donate at the retreat.

Every Wednesday morning before I head to my daycare room for a day full of intense playing, I stop by to see my friend, Goldie. She keeps everything organized for all of the hard working quilting ladies at my church. Although I turn a whole 17 months tomorrow, Goldie is 93 which means she knows a little more about stuff than I do so she’s been teaching me. Oh and she was the first person my daddy met when he started coming to my church a long time ago. He told me that the long conversation he had with her on his first day at our church was the reason he kept coming back. He’s right about her. She’s super sweet and always makes everybody feel so welcomed ❤️ #emiliemariehelton#heltonpartyof3#daddyslittlegirl#mommyslittlegirl#quilting#churchfamily#lovemychurchfamily#church#daycarelife
And the final domino for today... The master bedroom. I was having difficulty maneuvering and reaching things and so on. Particularly on bad days which today is. This gives me so much more room. I can easily reach all on the round table from the chair and the bed. And the chair is a bit higher and firmer which works better for me. And it looks pretty, yes? When I am up to it I will see what I have in my fabric stash and make a cloth for the table as well as some pillow covers etc. For now, bliss. Really pleased that I am able to redecorate and reuse without buying a thing. 🏡💕 #farmhousemasterbedroom#farmhouse#farmhouserestoration#masterbedroom#quilting#autoimmunedisease#smallfiberneuropathy
First block done, and I think I like it. I have two goals for the quilting- let the kids' artwork shine, and make it look stunning so people will bid lots of money on it. All the thread color changes might drive me crazy, though. At least it's for a good cause.🤪
WHY I Sew: Submission from Deb of Illinois (USA) . "I'm the one in the purple shirt. The other person in the picture is my friend Sue. This pattern was our Education Day class in our local American Sewing Guild chapter. I've always wanted to make a Christmas quilt so this was the perfect opportunity to do so. I've been quilting since 2011 when I joined the Guild. When I took this class I had no idea who I was going to give this quilt to and just figured I'd keep it for myself. Then my friend confided in me about some life happenings and I decided that she needed to know that someone loved her. So I pushed myself to get it done and gave it to her at our sewing retreat after staying up until 1:30 am to finish it!!! When she was in college she was an elf in the college's promotional videos so I told her that every elf needs a Christmas quilt! She had no idea and absolutely loved it!!!"

My show, Running With Rotary Cutter, is now up at Halifax Central Library, fifth floor. #repost @terrybailey with @get_repost ・・・ A very special and favourite place for many in Halifax is now even more special and warm and comforting thanks to the handwork of a very special and warm person we all love - Marilyn. It was a breeze hanging her beautiful work using the fantastic cable and track hanging system in the Public Art space in The Sunroom of Halifax Central Library. . Running with Rotary Cutter is up now until March. . I recommend setting aside some time, grab a coffee and treat and sit amongst the quilts, get lost in the colours, get up close and look at the stitches. Be inspired to perhaps make something yourself. . #maker#quilting#quiltsofinstagram @paviagallery @hfxpublib @ellemenotextiles
Yep yep yep yep yep. This one is gonna have to be repeated. It is so darling. Another custom order with another customer with a great design eye! And Dear Stella and baby quilts just make sense together.
A fun share from textile artist Teresa Shippy! "Textile cool classic ride. Scoop: This very cool 20 piece textile series has been in travel mode for just about a year. Rollin into World Quilt Florida - January 31st- February 2nd, 2019 - Tampa, Florida via Mancuso Show Management. Hope you have a chance to see these funky classics up close and personal! More car news ahead. Pictured is a very cool 1956 Pontiac Front."
✂️Как сшить Twist Block✂️ Мини МК✂️ Покажу как раскроить и собрать лоскутный блок в технике Twist (мельница, флик-фляк, как больше нравится). У меня линейка для таких блоков разного размера (от 3" до 10") Twist 'n Stitch. Есть и для блока одного размера с нанесённой разметкой (у Авроры, например) Я покажу сам принцип - для блока из четырех вертушек. Количество можно увеличить и выложить конкретный узор. Как шьём: 1) Выкраиваем 4 квадрата. Для конечного размера вертушек 3" (3.5" с припуском на швы) нужны квадраты 5". И полосы для бордюров (фонового цвета) шириной 3". Сшиваем блок из квадратов (листайте фото в карусели) 2) Располагаем линейку, чтобы нанесённые линии совпали со швами и прорезаем по двум противоположным сторонам 3) Поворачиваем линейку на 90° и снова прорезаем - по другим двум сторонам 3*) В линейках-шаблонах для одного размера сразу обводится контур по всем четырем сторонам (вырезается). Такой шаблон можно сделать и самим (из пластика, например). Обводить маркером и вырезать. 4) У нас получилось 9 повернутых квадратов 5) Теперь их нужно, сохранив порядок, довернуть до горизонтали по часовой
Treasures. We just unbagged this yo yo quilt that my great grandmother made, maybe pre 1945? She was a prolific quilter and crocheter and I remember a house full of these incredible hand made things as a young kid.
