Coming Soon :: Think Big Quilt Along

By |July 27th, 2015|quilt-along, Think Big|3 Comments

Last week I shared all of the quilts in Think Big, and it got my creative juices flowing! Since all the blocks in the book are 18″ I decided to work out a sampler quilt, with at least a few of the blocks included in the book. Here’s what I came up with :

Tone It Down – Finished Quilt!

By |June 16th, 2014|finished quilt, quilt-along|13 Comments

My backstory on the Tone It Down Quilt Along – I started this quilt last fall, with the intention that it was for my father-in-law. He is around our house often, and sees all the quilts I make, in various stages of the process, always admiring. His regular line was – “You know; that would […]

Tone It Down – Quilt Top

By |March 3rd, 2014|quilt-along, Swap, work in progress|16 Comments

Last week I shared my Quilt-along progress, and I’m excited to have even more progress to share today!

I sewed up the block centers – and love the way the colors are coming together, the varied blues, with a touch of green is just right!

I also did some strip-piecing, and trimmed them up for four-patches –

Dancing Stars Quilt Top!

By |June 18th, 2013|quilt-along, work in progress|10 Comments

Last week I finished all my Dancing Stars blocks and was so excited to put them together into a top.

It took me a couple nights of intense sewing (the best kind, right?) and multiple episodes of Parenthood on Netflix – I have a quilt top!

98 blocks 6″ each, set on point; the top measures 60″ […]

In Progress

By |April 29th, 2013|quilt-along|4 Comments

After I finished piecing 30 Dancing Stars blocks last month, I immediately copied more of the pattern, intent on sewing up a few here and there.  Which didn’t happen.  I thought I would sew 10-15 instead of 30 at once, instead I’m sewing them all up!

I’m just beginning the 68 remaining blocks, but hopeful that I can […]

By |April 1st, 2013|quilt-along, work in progress|6 Comments

Melody and I were busy all last week piecing 30 Dancing Stars blocks – I’m working toward the throw size, which includes 99 blocks total. Each block has a different print in the star, I love the variety!

I thought I would share a few tips for chain piecing these blocks.

First, I pieced the background with […]
