Comfort Quilt Patterns & More

Happy Monday, Friends.  I hope you are well!  This week will find me feverishly piecing quilt tops… so, here’s to productivity to you and me!

1.  A little Behind-the-Scenes.  I am often asked about my designing process.  What comes first for me: design concepts in my head or fabric choices?  For my “work” work, more often than not, it’s the fabric choices.  What happens is fabric companies would send me images of upcoming fabric lines, and ask if I could come up with supporting quilt designs for the specific lines.  So I would look at and start getting a feel for the mood and theme of the fabrics.  I would then do research related topics based on the theme of the fabric groups to get ideas on how best to showcase the fabrics through quilt designs.  For example, I was asked to play with an upcoming fabric line that has the 50’s theme.  Mind you, I am not a child of the 50’s — still a whipper snapper that I am, just kidding! :)  So, I read up on a bit about the cultural aspects of the 50’s, and came up with this Movie Night design, accented by the 50’s style glasses!  Click here to see this fun fabric group – details on the quilt pattern are forthcoming! :)

movie-night

2.  Comfort Throw Quilts.  Every so often I get to work fabric themes that aren’t as carefree as the 50’s.  Last year, I got to work with one fabric group related with breast cancer (Anything Is Possible by Windham Fabrics), and the other with heart disease (Quilting Treasures).  It is my hope that these quilts, when made, will bring comfort to the recipients.

And I close today with a prayer for America by our first President, General George Washington:

Almighty GOD; we make our earnest prayer that Thou wilt keep the United States in Thy holy protection, that thou wilt incline the hearts of the citizens to cultivate a spirit of subordination and obedience to government; and entertain a brotherly affection and love for one another and for their fellow citizens of the United States of America at large. And finally that Thou wilt most graciously be pleased to dispose us all to do justice, to love mercy and to demean ourselves with that charity, humility and pacific temper of mind which were the characteristics of The Divine Author of our blessed religion, and without whose example in these things we can never hope to be a happy nation. Grant our supplication, we beseech thee, through Jesus Christ Our Lord. Amen

With prayers for the future, and always with thanksgiving to God, I hope you have a most blessed day!

QQ10217 Im Blue for You: A Visit with Wendy Sheppard

Hello Friends, I hope you are doing well!  I am happy to share a little about my I’m Blue For You quilt that is featured in the Feb/March 2017 McCall’s Quick Quilts magazine!

atlas-quilt

This is a super easy quilt to put together as you can easily use 5″ charm squares as your starting point.  But fun thing about this is that with the very basic squares and half-square-triangle units, you can create a striking check mark effects with the quilt layout! :)  You know me, I hardly ever design quilts with difficult to piece block elements.

design-1a_55-x-65_blue

I used the blue fabrics from Windham Fabrics’ Atlas collection.  Check out the entire collection here, as they also have the same fabrics in tan colorways.  And if you use the tan fabrics, your quilt will end up looking like this.

design-1a_55-x-65_brown

I quilted random straight lines at various angles across the width of the quilt using Aurifil’s Mako 50wt.  The good thing about that is there is really no planning except for the plan of filling the quilt top with straight lines.

McCall’s Quilting blog features a post about my I’m Blue For You.  Click here to find out my suggestions on different (and hopefully fun) ways to use this quilt design.

I have actually designed two more quilts using the same line for Windham Fabrics.  You might check if your local quilt shops are selling the kits.  If not, they might be able to order the kits for you from Windham Fabrics.

Happy New Year!

Hello Friends, and Happy New Year to you!  I hope you and yours had a restful and enjoyable break over Christmas and New Year.  WOW — I can’t believe we are already into the 6th day of the new year!  I hope we will have fun with each other as quilting buddies this new year.  Venturing into the New Year is like stepping through a door… and finding out what awaits on the other side.

img_5325

Things are already shaping up for me this New Year.  The following samples of what’s to come in the new year… so, you can see I have been working, haha!  But then if you have known me for any length of time, I make a point to not ever complain about work.

Here are a few Miss Baby’s sayings that I thought were cute from last year…

#1.  “Mom, I would still be grateful if all I got were a few cough drops in my stocking!”

#2.  “Do I really get everything you have after you are gone, including ALL the quilts? …. Oh, you mean I could pick a few of my favorites and then maybe give the rest away?  Phiew!  Don’t be offended… I would keep ALL the quilts if you only made a few.  But you have so many of them!” [#2 made me laugh!]

Miss Baby did manage a last minute quick stitching finish before 2017.  So, this will be the first ornament she hangs up on our Christmas tree this year.

So, here are a couple of New Year-ish quilts!

Making New Friends in Fons & Porter’s Quilting Quickly (November/December 2016), using Windham’s Grace charm pack.  You can watch a tutorial on how to make this quilt here.

Day Break is a design using Hoffman fabrics, and exclusive kits are available from Keepsake Quilting.  Click here to purchase quilt kits.  I was asked if the construction of this quilt top involves Y-seams — no Y-seams, just the good ol’ half-square-triangles!  You know me, I avoid complicated piecing for the most part, hehe.

high-res_keepsake-exclusive_91-x-91

SEW-ALONG – who wants to join?  Besides the usual, this year, I have a goal to make my Spring on Bleecker Street quilt for myself!  You see, I didn’t get to keep the original quilt displayed at Quilt Market last fall.  And I am looking for sewing buddies on this project.  I will be hosting a sew-along starting in Feb.  I would love for you to join along.  If you haven’t already, you may download the instructions for this collage quilt here.  Please email me with the subject tilte “Sew Along” to let me know you would be interested to join in the fun.  The fabric kits (fabric and floss) are available from http://thimblemouseandspouse.com.  I know that for a fact, because Lynn announced that she had ordered the fabrics and floss.  Give her a call or email her!!!  I will share more about the schedule for sew-along next week, and how it’s going to work next week.

Meanwhile, Christmas isn’t quite over in my little corner of the world. I will be working on these fabrics!!!  One thing I can promise you for 2017 is that I have MANY Christmas projects in the works.

MYSTERY QUILT-ALONG, anyone? There will also be a mystery quilt-along being planned for this summer.  I am trying to see which you prefer — would you prefer a mystery quilt-along using scraps or a specific fabric line?

Alrightie, Friends…. God’s  blessings to all of you for a fanta-bulous year!  And have a wonderful weekend.

p.s.  I am still trying to catch up on emails you had sent me over Christmas break.  We were gone for a bit, and I am just now working on replying my email inbox and cleaning it out.

Don’t Look Under The Tree in Fons and Porter’s Easy Quilts (Winter 2016)

Just 2 more sleeps to Christmas Day, Friends!!!  But, DON’T LOOK UNDER THE TREE — just don’t!!! Hahaha.  That’s the name of my Christmas tree featured in Fons and Porter’s Easy Quilts Winter 2016.  I can’t take credit for that fun name.  The credit goes to the editorial team at Fons and Porter!

COVER QUILT ALERT: Close Quarters in American Patchwork & Quilting (Jan/Feb 2017) & Giveaway

apq-feb-2017-cover-digital-lr_600

Happy Monday, Friends!  I hope you are doing well.  I just heard from the news that it will be a cold one for those of us in the Northern Hemisphere.  Do bundle up and stay warm… and stay in Close Quarters.  *wink*

You see, that house quilt on the cover of the latest Jan/Feb 2017 issue of American Patchwork & Quilting is named Close Quarters – and it is MINE! :)  I am so happy to make cover on American Patchwork & Quilting – my first by the way.  So, it is extra special.  Here are a few pictures I took when the quilt was still work-in-progress.

This quilt is a very different from my usual quilts in that it is constructed entirely with solids.  I used RJR Fabrics‘ Cotton Supreme solids to achieve an updated Amish look.  It is basically a one block wonder quilt.  All the houses are the same, made interesting by the different fabrics used.  Full instructions are published in American Patchwork & Quilting Jan/Feb 2017 issue.

So you can see that RJR’s Cotton Supreme solids are my go-to solids! :)

Happy Thanksgiving 2016

Hello Friends, it’s here — THANKSGIVING 2016 is here!  The attitude of gratitude is a noble one — being grateful for things, being grateful toward our fellow men.  Today, I am grateful to God, my Creator and Saviour for His bountiful blessings and everlasting mercy, and for the “… pilgrim feet, Whose stern, impassioned stress; A thoroughfare for freedom beat across the wilderness!” My prayer this day is that I will always be inspired by the pilgrims so long ago who loved and pursued religious freedom more than comfort.

IMG_1764

I look forward to a few days of downtime with my family.  We will enjoy each other’s company.  Many many years ago, I made a quilt where I embroidered on every quilt block our family’s favorite Thanksgiving dishes.

You can see that the quilt was made QUITE a few years ago judging from the size of my assistant. :)

This quilt is one of my favorites because it “records” a bit of family history.

Friends, I hope you have a most blessed and safe holiday!  I shall catch up with you later.

Kissing Balls in Australian Quilters Companion & Thread Talk from My Sewing Machine #71

thread-talk1

aqc82

Hello Friends, Happy Monday and Happy Week for you! I am still in my whirlwind of merry-go-round.  I shipped off a couple of quilt last week, and have a few more to ship out before Thanksgiving.  I cannot believe Thanksgiving is next week!!!  It seemed ages ago when I finalized our Thanksgiving plans.  Anyhow, I am happy to share with you about one of my Christmas quilt being finally official!!!  You might remember this…

festive fun

Well, Kissing Ball is currently being featured in the latest issue of Australian Quilters Companion magazine(#82).  It is a nod to my Aussie Quilting Friends, as well as “the” Aussie quilting friend of mine Lynette Anderson — who happens to be the designers of the fabrics I used for this quilt.  The fabrics are from Lynette’s Festive Fun fabrics for RJR Fabrics.

festive-fun_aqc

You can’t really see it, but I quilted an allover holly sprig motifs on the quilt.  I am hoping you can see close up shot I took of a sprig here.

img_5100

I am sharing with you the schematic of the holly sprig motif for the Thread Talk portion of the post today.   Perhaps you could use the motif on a Christmas project.  You still have time, you know? :)

Step 1. First, I free-motion quilted the center berries.  It was perfectly fine for me overlap stitches because I use Aurifil’s 50wt thread, and the fine weight of the thread withstands stitching over stitches very well.

img_5102

Step 2.  Then I added the holly leaves.  I would do 2 or 3 leaves depending on the space I have.  Sometimes I added the veins in the leaf center, sometimes I didn’t.

img_5103

Step 3.  Swirls are the key to break out of a holly sprig to quilt subsequent holly sprigs.  I just picked a convenient spot to quilt a swirl, and then additional swirls until I end up with an area sufficient to quilt another holly sprig – starting with berries, and then holly leaves.

img_5104

Step 4.  And the process repeats.  Note where it was a bit tight for me to swing a swirl to get out of my holly sprig.  In situations as such, I would just echo the leaf a little and get out before I do a full swirl.  Real life quilting is full of off the cuff improvisations! :)

img_5105

I would keep repeating and repeating and repeating until my entire quilt was covered with the motif.

Thanks for stopping by!  I hope you have a lovely rest of your week!

Happy Veterans Day!

Hello Friends, a very happy and blessed Veterans Day to you!  My heart is grateful to so many who have served in the armed forces, and served honorably!  I also prayed that God would bless and watch over the wounder warriors amongst us.

This year, I am very happy a Quilts of Valor (QOV) design is added to my design list!  Pattern details coming soon.

First Blush FQ Bundle & Aurifil Thread Pack Giveaway Winners & Other Fun Kits

Happy Friday, Friends!  I hope you have had a great week.  My week went by fast from settling back in my routine post-Quilt Market, to tending to an under the weather little girl, and being behind on stuff!  Haha.  That “being behind” stuff — a friend from the industry and I were just laughing at how “being behind” is just a part of life.  We were hoping for a Market reset — but sadly, there’s no reset. :)  All is well!!!

I am happy to announce the winners of my FIRST BLUSH FQ BUNDLE and AURIFIL THREAD PACK GIVEAWAY! You may click here to view more pictures of the project I did with the fabrics.

Please email me your mailing address so that I can forward to the right people to have your gifts sent to you!!!

I have been receiving emails asking if you could purchase my patterns separately apart from the quilt kits carried at stores.  Answer is: if the pattern is offered as a free-to-use pattern on the website of fabric companies, then they are available to you for download for free.  However, if they aren’t, they are usually exclusive only to the quilt kits.  I currently do not sell my patterns via any venues like Craftsy for various reasons, but it is something I am considering doing.  But no decision is made on that front.  For now, I like the arrangements I have with the different companies for whom I design because it frees me up to design, and not mired in administrative responsibilities.

WITH THAT SAID, I am happy to share that Missouri Star Quilt Co is now carrying kits of a few of my patterns!

1.  Dixie Flowers Kit – click HERE to purchase.

dixie-recolor_mos_48-5-x-64-5

2.  Kaleidoscope Kit – click HERE to purchase.  This is a fun design in that it is a play on pinwheels blocks where I inserted pinwheels within pinwheels within pinwheels in a quilt block.

That’s all for now.  I have more magazine quilts returned to me.  I will share those with you next week, hopefully! Meanwhile, have a lovely weekend!
