QuiltCon judges have announced the quilts that will be shown in the QuiltCon Show in Austin, Feb 21st through 24th.  I’m totally going to have a quilt in the show!!!!  I entered 3 total quilts, and this is not the one that I thought had the strongest chance… so what do I know…  BUT I’ll take it just the same.  This quilt was originally made...

Finishing up a small UFO.  I keep thinking “Oh, I just made that, so it isn’t a UFO.  It isn’t like it has sat around a while unfinished.”  Ah but blog… blog… blog.  I searched my blog to see when I took the workshop from Jacquie at Tallgrass Prairie.  … um yeh, OVER A YEAR AGO.  Time to get that quilt top finished! I...

Tomorrow is the first day of the Common Threads Quilt Show.  The show is every other year, put on by the local Wichita Prairie Quilt guild and is huge.  In 2010 I think there were something like 900 quilts on display, no including vendor areas.  This year they limited the quilts to (cough cough) only 500.  I cannot wait to see them all. The Wichita Modern Quilt...

QuiltCon Block Challenge – 3

QuiltCon Block Challenge – 3

on Jun 11, 2012 in Blog, contests, quilt, sewing, WMQG | 0 comments

Keeping with the stripes theme from Block 2, I went on to design Block 3.  With all that photoshop, illustrator, EQ available… Block 3 was totally sketched out on leftover notebook paper + blue sharpie.  The old fashioned way. Block 3 was, by far, the easiest to sew. Tiny bit of chain piecing to add white rectangles in the middles of 2 1/2″ wide strips....

  I recently finished up my block for the QuiltCon block entry.  I wanted to show you how I went about drafting my modern, organic block.  Keep in mind, one of the rules was that the block could not be appliqued.  Oh man, that would have been SOOOO much easier.  Instead, I created a paper pieced ring, and traditional “curve pieced” background and...

I wanted to show you this great fabric bundle from The Fat Quarter Shop.  It is ALL the solids for the QuiltCon block challenge, from MODA.  I have the design already mapped out in my mind.  I just need to sit down and make it before Aug 15th.  Ooh, I hope it turns out well.  Sometimes things are much better in the imagination than in fabric.  We shall see. Tell a...

Orange Sun Block

I started out wanting to make one of those blocks with all the points.  I’m not sure if it’d be a Mariner’s Compass or New York Beauty type block.  Mostly, I knew I wanted the block to be radial with points.  Thanks to Adobe Illustrator, I was able to make my own paper template and generate a design. Sewing using the paper piecing method will yield...

With my small swatch of Daisy Janie’s Tilly, I wanted to make a block inspired by a workshop I attended, taught by Jacquie from Tallgrass Prairie.  The coordinating fabrics are Kona Solids and the yellow is a Moda Bella Solid.  I don’t think any of these pieces are organic, like my little Tilly is. Since I had a small amount I had to get a plan that...

I’m happy to add a bit of geek to my quilt collection.  I made the PacMan quilt a while back, but alas it was for a swap.  This new quilt, I’m totally keeping. It will help me remember to not take myself too seriously. I was watching a quilting tv show and they were talking about a perfect kitchen quilt.  I never gave much thought to a quilt expressly...

I have been sewing like a crazy person all summer long, when I haven’t been sitting in the car.  And, when I was in the car I was writing and in one case, giving an interview to Pat Sloan (from I-40!).  Anywhoo-  I’ll be able to tell you all about those sewing projects, shortly. For now though, I took a little time for myself to make a new guild name...
