  The San Antonio Modern Quilt Guild has issued a UFO challenge.  Though this post isn’t directly part of that, I thought I’d share this project.  Let me tell you the story.  Way Way Way back in 2009 I hosted a Sampler Quilt Block Swap.  It was fun.  I had a many participants and some of you may remember following along on the blog site.  (And you...

SAMQG January Block of The Month

This month’s Block of the Month for the San Antonio Modern Quilt Guild is a triangle!  I’ve been a a member of 5 or 6 guilds in a few different towns and I’ve never made a triangle for a BOM.  Let me tell you, I was thrilled to see the design.  And super excited to dive in and stitch it up…. but um…. triangles are hard. This block is...

  I’m loving my new quilt guild so far!  The San Antonio Modern Quilt Guild sure knows how to make a girl feel welcome.  I jumped right in and grabbed a kit for the October Block of the Month.  The block is based on and Elizabeth Hartman block, I believe.  Can you believe they give you a fabric kit to work with?  How awesome is that?!?!  Not only are they...

I was asked to make a block which will later be added with into assortment of other blocks.  As with these kinds of collections, the blocks will be sewn together and given as a gift to someone.  I wanted to slip a little military fabric (USAF) into my block.  It is a wonky log cabin.  If you haven’ tried those yet- I highly recommend it.  Use this tutorial....

Oh what could the big Doll Quilt Swap quilt be? You have seen a few clues, a few pictures to get the guesses started… but I’m going to go out on a limb and say none of you saw this coming… Yep, my partner was hoping for anything “inspired by old Atari”  – And before you go crazy on me, yes, I know Pacman was not originally Atari,...

Ok, this is it.  This is the sneak peek at the REAL, actual, little quilt I’ll be mailing to my Doll Quilt Swap 10 partner.  The swaps are to be in the mail March 15th, so I’ll be able to show you the whole thing then.  I would show you sooner, but my partner had a strangely specific request (towards the bottom of her bio)   After I made the other...

I’ve been cleaning up in the studio.  I’ve organized.  I’ve purged.  I’ve re-organized and now I have a couple pictures to show you.  I showed you the space right after we first moved, a little over a year ago.  Wanna see the progress??? My favorite spot is the inspiration wall behind my sewing desk.  I have all sorts of things on that wall. ...

  I had this fun idea for a Doll Quilt Swap Quilt.  Its little, its hexagons, and its bright blue + Art Gallery Fabrics + USAF uniform. It was just a matter of time before I got those fun USAF hexagons into a modern design. I think making these small quilted items are just so fast and quick.  (Once those crazy hexagons are prepared.) They use up...

  Ok, this is my first brain storm for the Doll Quilt Swap 10 going on over on flickr.  I have a grand plan for the quilting, which will make the white space, not soooooooo white.  I’m not sure that this is the quilt that will make it to my partner.  My secret partner has some very specific requests, so I think if I post the final design-...
