Mini Dresden –  Assembly

  I’m making a baby quilt.  I don’t have it completely planned out yet, but that isn’t unusual. Here’s what I know:  I want to make mini Dresden Plate circles cut from a charm pack. 3 Dresden wedges can be cut from one charm.  The pieces are only 3 1/2″ tall, but they are so great and scrappy looking.   I started out cutting a...

I made a crazy little Dragonfly Quilt for my Michael Miller MQG Challenge 2014 entry.  You may have already seen it on the blog, here.   The concept was to take some of the basic “swirl + pointy” shapes of a tribal tattoo and make something with fabric.  I needed a rough draft before I cut into the challenge fabric. Enter: Butterfly Quilt The method...

  After I folded my fabric in the Great Fabric Re-Fold of 2014, I decided I really needed to make up a few quick quilts.  I found a tutorial for really fast half-square triangles (which are really quarter square triangles – anywho).  I decided to take the same idea and make big ole quilt blocks with it. Scrappy Strip Quilt Tutorial Here’s a little...

  While on vacation this summer, I had the opportunity to quilt my 60″ Swoon Block.  I made the block/quilt in 2012.  Yes, this project was rocking some serious UFO status, until a couple weeks ago.   My mother-in-law has a 28″ Gammel.  That dude is heavy.  Really, heavy when you consider I’m generally sewing on a 9″ Juki on a...

15 Minutes of Play Scrap Quilt So I told you about the 15 Minutes of Play book, right?  I LOVE the quilt that came from “yeah, just sew your scraps together however you want.”  It is such a liberating process. I opted to sew all my scraps together in color families.  I made the finished “Made-Fabric” pieces any size.  Really, whatever size...

  Funny because it is ironic.  =) I think I’m going to hang it in my office.   I first saw the: Always Plan Ahea d phrase online.  I think it was some graphic/typeface/font website where I found it.  It cracked me right up so, of course, I needed to make it in fabric. Gathered the scraps and set forth to make improv letters from the Word Play Quilts...

Every year we have a family reunion and with 8...
