***

Good morning, Friends — it’s check-in #5 for #pumppleSAL today! I have enjoyed seeing pictures of #pumppleSAL on Instagram. Do check them out if you haven’t.

Complete details are HERE if you are just now finding out about the sewalong. Click HERE for check-in #1, HERE for check-in #2, HERE for check-in #3 and HERE for check-in #4.

“A Pumpkin A Day” is my original quilt featured on the cover of Quilter’s World Autumn 2022 issue. This is a scrap friendly quilt — or you can easily use a FQ bundle that has a minimum of 15 FQs (or equivalent F8s).

And then a bunch of us decided to sew this quilt together!

Click HERE if you want to use the fabrics used to make the original quilt (shown on the magazine cover). They are from Moda’s Late October line.

I cannot stress enough – my sewalong schedule is NEVER set in stone. You can sew at your own pace. My schedule serves only as a guide, mainly to make sure I complete my quilt.

Purchase the Quilters World Autumn 2022 issue for the pattern  HERE if you aren’t already a subscriber.

Today’s assignemnt is same as last week’s. We are completing the blocks, starting with 3-4 blocks a week for the next few weeks. To date, I have 8 blocks completed.

I am using a mix of Windham Fabrics’ Rowan and Darling fabrics. I wasn’t able to get the main floral in Rowan’s line, so I brought in a couple of florals from a couple of Windham’s older lines that are already in my stash. The pumpkin fabric you see below is from my stash – I don’t remember which fabric line it was from.

You may purchase Rowan Fabrics or a FQ Bundle HERE.

You may purchase Darling Fabrics HERE.

And here we are, 5 weeks into the sewalong. I hope you have enjoyed making your pumpple blocks! I don’t think I will get much done on my pumpple blocks for next week, but I will still check in with you next Wednesday, regardless.

***

Here is a quick glance at the schedule:

8/3 – Do a test block from start to finish! With a block that has many pieces, I always make a block from start to finish. That way, I am able to work out pressing directions and other details. Doing this will make construction of your subsequent blocks go so much faster. You may decide to keep this book, or not, toward the 20 blocks we will be making!

8/10 – Make (10) pumpkin or apple units, (9) if you are keeping your test block.

8/17 – Make another (10) pumpkin or apple units.

—> WE ARE HERE! 8/24, 8/31, 9/7, 9/14, 9/21, 9/28 – Complete (3) or (4) blocks each week until you have made (20).

10/4 – Assemble quilt top, and you will have a quilt for the FALL and/or BEYOND!

Norfolk Sampler QAL – Check in #8

Hello Friends, today is our 8th check-in for Norfolk Sampler Quilt Along! Can you believe we are on our 8th month? Give yourself a pat on the shoulder if you are still sewing along. We have two more blocks to make, and you will have your very own Norfolk Sampler quilt very soon!! I am loving all the sightings on Instagram. Just do a search on #norfolksampler2022, and see what quilters have done! And on that note, if you post on Instagram, ALWAYS add hashtag #norfolksampler2022 and #wendysheppard so that we can all oooh and aaah over your blocks!

SHARE YOUR PROGRESS PICTURES – ANY PROGRESS PICTURES WILL WORK!

Before going any further, let me quickly go through the QAL essentials in case you just heard about it. You may read previous blog posts HERE.

  1. NO sign-up necessary. Join in anytime. This QAL runs the entire year of 2022.
  2. Pattern is released in 4 installments in Quilters World magazine. Purchase the first pattern (spring 2022) installment HERE. Purchase the second pattern (summer 2022) installment HERE. Purchase the third pattern (autumn 2022) installment HERE.
  3. USE hashtag #norfolksampler2022 when posting your quilt progress picture on social media.
  4. The fabrics in the original sample quilt are available HERE. The pattern in spring 2022 issue will tell you exactly which fabrics to purchase, and how much to purchase. However, it would seem like the blue skus are sold out. So, your best bet might be to purchase the FQ bundle, and mix and match the fabrics that way for a scrappier final look.
  5. I have curated a companion thread box called INDIGO to go with this project. You may purchase the threads HERE. Read about the collection HERE.

Click HERE to purchase the kit. See other patterns and kits by me at Annies HERE. Please note that this kit uses a different set of blue and white fabrics. The kits that use my original fabrics sold out really quickly when it was first released.

***

So for today’s check-in, we are supposed to make the flying geese column units.

Here are my “Block 8” flying geese column units — I am using a One Fine Day FQ Bundle (by Moda) to make my quiltalong quilt. I had a lot of fun using all the different fabrics in the FQ bundle to make my flying geese units.

You may purchase the FQ bundle HERE.

Remember, instructions for blocks 7 & 8 are found in the Quilters World Autumn 2022 issue. If you are not a subscriber, you may purchase the issue HERE. The issue should have the following cover.

And that’s it for #NorfolkSampler2022 — Just TWO MORE blocks to make from the Winter 2022 issue! I was asked when it will be released. I am thinking sometime in Oct. Remember 9/30 will be our breather/catching up check-in. I will be sewing together all the available units to see how mine look with the brighter colors. I have seen on Instagram how some of you have already done that — Kudos to you! Thank you for sewing along, and I hope you have a lovely day! See you again on Sept 30 for our breather post.

Hello Friends, I hope you have had a good start to your week. First thing first, the rail fence scrappy blocks etc winner is Vivian Lewis. Congratulations! I will send you an email with information. :)

If you are not picked for last week’s destash opportunity, do not despair. Believe it or not, I have MORE to share. I didn’t manage to snap a picture of my next stash to be given away. Stay tuned on future 2-Cent posts for my continuing destash opportunities. So far, I have found a few more bags of useable scraps, and THEN, I found yardages + wide back, quilt tops, panels, books etc. I just need a bit of time to take pictures of the piles! :)

***

I was sent this picture a couple of weeks ago. The Moda box kits using my “This Little Light” design are shown being the warehouse of Moda Fabrics in the picture below, and they are in shops NOW!

You may purchase the pattern PDF HERE.

Or, Fat Quarter Shop has ALL THINGS “This Little Light” HERE – Kits, Fabrics, Paper Patterns!

STAY TUNED FOR DETAILS – I AM PLANNING A SEWALONGBECAUSE CHRISTMAS IS COMING!

***

And for my 2-cents this week:

Sometimes it matters the direction of your sewing path when you are piecing, especially where there is bulk involved. For example, when I am sewing my two HST together to make one half of a pinwheel block, I always start from the end with the most bulk to the end with the least bulk. The reason being I find that sometimes toward the end of a seam, my pieces would sometimes be shifted just so, and thus the seam ends up not being right at 1/4″. It might not be a big deal, but it is when I am making pinwheels.

The following photo shows two pinwheels being pinned and then sewn together.

That nice 1/4″ seam will not cause me to lose any points when sewing 2 halves together to make my pinwheel block.

That’s all from me today. It’s your turn to share your two cents!

Hello Friends, it’s all going to be downhill from here. After today, we have one more row, and then, it’s the outer border. Honestly, at 5 x 5 layout, you could stop if that’s what you wish to do! Or you could make the 6th row without attaching the outer border. That’s totally fine too!

Here is a picture of my five rows sewn together.

So, next week we take a breather for you to either play catch upon this quilt, or other projects you have ongoing. I will see you two Mondays from now for #puzzleSAL.

That’s all for today! Happy Monday and Happy Week to you!

Good morning, Friends — it’s check-in #4 for #pumppleSAL today! I have enjoyed seeing pictures of #pumppleSAL on Instagram. Do check them out if you haven’t.

Hello Friends, I hope you have had a good start to your week.

***

Today marks another school year for us. The house always feels strangely quiet on the first day of school. New school year requires new clipboards, yes? This design will work for any themed fabrics of your choice. The pattern PDF is available for purchase HERE.

The fabrics you see are from an upcoming line called Eden by Riley Blake Designs. Click HERE for fabric info.

Mary asked last week about how often I change out my sewing machine needles. Thank you so much for the question!

Here are my two-cents: I was told every project, and I think that’s a good practice. But I have also learned to feel the tip of my needles. If you gently rub the tip of a new needle with your finger pad before you place it on the machine, you will find that the tip of a new needle is smooth. However, after a period of time of sewing, the tip will fill a bit rough. Generally, I would change out the needle when it feels quite rough, and I can actually hear it a slight scraping noise. So, when I can feel that my needle is significantly different from a new needle, that’s definitely time to swap out the old and bring in the new.

And now it’s your turn to share your two-cents with us!

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

I have to confess, I didn’t make these blocks until way after 11pm last night because I had a rather crazy week last week, and even crazier weekend. But these blocks only took me about an hour to make and sew together. And to be honest, this is a quilt you can totally start and finish in a weekend!

Here is a picture of my four rows sewn together.

If you haven’t followed Mary of Needled Mom’s blog (HERE) or on Instagram, you need to! I have been friends with Mary for more than a decade. We met through our blogs when my daughter was a baby. Mary sent a tooth fairy pillow to my daughter when she lost her first tooth. That little pillow is still proudly displayed in my daughter’s room. Mary was sewing along #puzzleSAL, and she has already finished hers! I like that she backed the quilt with Minky too — the child who receives Mary’s quilt will feel so loved and blessed.

And that brings up the point I always stress – my Sewalong schedules are merely suggested. The Sewalongs are never a race either. So, you just sew at your own pace if following my schedule doesn’t work well for you.

That’s all for today! Happy Monday and Happy Week to you!

For today’s assignment, we are supposed to make another (10) pumpkin units. I went ahead and attached the corner triangle units. That way, I will have less to do when I work on completing the blocks.

I am using a mix of Windham Fabrics’ Rowan and Darling fabrics. I wasn’t able to get the main floral in Rowan’s line, so I brought in a couple of florals from a couple of Windham’s older lines that are already in my stash. And I have got my 20 pumpkin units done!

You may purchase Rowan Fabrics or a FQ Bundle HERE.

You may purchase Darling Fabrics HERE.

The foyer in my house doubles as my design wall. Because the corners of my pumpple block are to be scrappy, I first made my pumpkin/apple units and laid them on the floor. I auditioned the placement of the fabrics that would be used for the corners. I then pinned the corner fabrics so that I could make sure the fabrics were nicely distributed throughout the entire quilt layout. Once I was sure no fabrics were right next to each other, I sewed the corner pieces to the pumpkin units.

And that is it! We will meet up again next Wednesday – it’s time turn the pumpple units into finished blocks!!

2-Cent Tuesday & More De-stash Opportunity

Hello Friends, I hope you have had a good start to your week. First thing first, the Christmas fabrics de-stash winner goes to: Mary. Congratulations, Mary – I will send you an email with information. :)

I have another de-stash opportunity: 2 Scrap Bags + a gray stash. I always squeeze in more fabrics if there’s room in the box. Those of you who have received from me will know, haha! US address ONLY please! I will pick a winner next Tuesday. Winner agrees to send me a check for $27 that includes USPS Priority shipping, and I will send you the fabrics

***

Are you sewing along with Pat Sloan the Just Add Shortcake quilt? I am, and now all my strawberry blocks are sewn into rows! I look forward to finally finish this quilt and move on to another quilt that has been on my list.

Click HERE if you are just now hearing about the quilt along, and would still like to make the quilt.

***

And for this week’s 2-cents: My go-to machine sewing needles are the 90/14 Microtex by Schmetz. I use these needles for piecing, general sewing and quilting. I actually buy the needles in bulk that comes in a box of 100. Regarding the size, I find that my machine prefers the 90/14 size for 40 and 50wt – the smaller 80/12 size causes my machine to skip stitches. So, experiment and find out what size works best for your machine.

That’s it for me today. It’s now your turn to share your 2-cents!

Good morning, Friends — it’s check-in #2 for #pumppleSAL today! Complete details are HERE if you are just now finding out about the sewalong. Click HERE for check-in #1.

“A Pumpkin A Day” is my original quilt featured on the cover of Quilter’s World Autumn 2022 issue. This is a scrap friendly quilt — or you can easily use a FQ bundle that has a minimum of 15 FQs.

And then a bunch of us decided to sew this quilt together!

I cannot stress enough – my sewalong schedule is NEVER set in stone. You can sew at your own pace. My schedule serves only as a guide, mainly to make sure I complete my quilt.

I am making my sewalong quilt using a mix of Rowan and Darling fabrics by Windham Fabrics. That way, my quilt can be used for the fall, and way into winter because the pumpkins will also double as apples.

Purchase the Quilters World Autumn 2022 issue HERE if you aren’t already a subscriber.

You may purchase Rowan Fabrics or a FQ Bundle HERE.

You may purchase Darling Fabrics HERE.

For today’s assignment, we are supposed to make (10) pumpkin units. I went ahead and attached the corner triangle units. That way, I will have less to do when I work on completing the blocks in a couple of weeks.

Here are my pumpkin units!

We will be making another 10 pumpkin units for check-in #3 next Wednesday. Keep in mind, it’s your quilt — and you don’t have to make all 20 blocks. The following shows a table topper version where you only have to make (9) blocks.

And that is it! We will meet up again next Wednesday – hopefully I would have my (20) pumpkin units done!

Hello Friends, I am glad to be back again for a quick visit.

***

You have seen my “A Pumpkin A Day” quilt – in fact, if you are sewing the quilt for #pumppleSAL, tomorrow is our check-in #2. If you are wondering about #pumppleSAL – click HERE for details.

I thought you might like to see my other quilt that is featured in the same Quilters World Autumn 2022 issue! Spice Road is entirely SCRAPPY – I used almost 90 fabrics in this quilt.

In fact, Quilters World Autumn 2022 issue included a total of 4 projects by me. Click HERE to purchase the issue if you aren’t already a subscriber.

***

And for my 2 cents this week: If you have a quilt that needs binding, set aside a bit of time to get that done. I did – and it’s a great feeling because the quilt is “done” done!

Now it’s your turn to share your 2-cents with all of us!
