Whole Cloth Hand Quilted Quilt

This month’s Aurifil Artisan challenge was a whole cloth quilt. Immediately, I knew that I wanted to do organic hand quilting. This is something that I’ve wanted to try for a while but didn’t have the push to do so, until now! Although hard to capture correctly in photographs, the top fabric is a Windham Artisan Cotton Solid Aqua/White. I love the softness and lovely drape of Artisan Cottons!

Scrappy Throw Pillow

I’ve been saving all of my little leftover triangles from making stitch & flip blocks for the Inkling quilt pattern and converting them into all sorts of fun things. For example, turning the scraps-turned-HSTs into tiny star blocks! For the scraps from my Posy Inkling quilt, however, I thought that a coordinating lumbar pillow would be just the trick.

I chose my 16 favorite prints from the Posy fabric collection to make theContinue reading

In this article, when hand-quilting is mentioned, I’m talking specifically about big-stitch hand-quilting with size 8 or 12 weight thread. When I first started hand-quilting I just used whatever needle I could find. Then, I decided I should probably find one that I really like using, and turned to my good friend Google. There’s lots of information out on the web about which hand quilting needles are best. I’m not one to take someone else’sContinue reading

Sashiko Zipper Pouch | A Tutorial

This pouch all started when I found some Sashiko templates and realized they were nearly the right size for my rainbow zipper pouch pattern. I quickly got to work making not one, not two, but 5 pouches! When I get excited about something I go all in! And while you can access the original rainbow zipper pouch tutorial and probably figure out how to modify it for the sashiko templates (which yields a pouch aContinue reading
