The Quilt Police

This week I have been working on design. I have four quilts that are mostly designed in EQ. I’m not sold on color placement and alternate blocks for some yet. Three of these are string quilts, which is exciting and necessary, due to the overflowing string bins that are waiting for a project. At least […]

Making Scrap Quilts from Stash

Still not ready to tackle the sashing on the Ohio Star blocks so I finished sewing the bright 9 patches and just had to lay out a few squares with some of the butterflies – I love it! I think there’s a free pattern for this one on the Accuquilt site but I chose to […]

Introducing Ditty Ditty is the name of one of Island Batik’s latest fabric releases. The colours are as cute as their name… Kind of a pastelly sunset. Actually, I don’t easily recognise them as pastels but I guess that is what they really are, since they are nowhere near colour-saturated. Is there such things as […]

Welcome to Quilt Schmilt

What a whirlwind few days we’ve had! I haven’t had a chance to make the three additional blocks I need for Levi, my on his way now, third great grandchild. They are at the hospital now and the waiting has begun! And yes, it was slipped that baby is a boy and his first name […]

  This is our Island Batik February challenge.  We were instructed to use any Island Batik fabric in our box, but not the “surprise” fabric. It was to be smaller than 24″ x 24″. Once I decided what to do for my mini … the rest was easy.   Decision: A smalll Sudoku Quilt!   […]

Storied Quilts

About a month ago I got a Fedex tracking email saying they will deliver a 24 lb box from Island Batik. Then a day later I got my email from Island Batik announcing the 2019 Island Batik ambassadors and I had made the list! It has been almost a month and I still find it […]

Seams Like a Plan

My first year as an Ambassador for Island Batik fabrics wrapped last Friday with the posting of my “Many Glacier” quilt, made for the “Icicle” collection, which should be in your local quilt shop about now. When I signed up for the program, I had no idea what to expect, but wave the promise of […]

This is my first challenge post as a new Island Batik Ambassador.  The February Challenge was Magnificent Minis.  I choose to make my mini using the “Stash Builders”. “Stash Builders” are wonderful to use for a scrappy project like this mini.  They contain lots of variety in an array of Island Batik fabrics.  The strips […]

Some progress is better than no progress, right? My OMG for January was to make progress on my Good Fortune quilt, Bonnie Hunters 2018 mystery quilt.  A short goal, and honestly felt a little like cheating.  But at the time I made the goal, I hadn’t sewn in weeks and had serious concerns about my […]

Sewing With Sandy

So, last month, I participated in the Perfect 10 Sampler Sew Along from Sew Emma’s “Perfect 10” book. The sampler consisted of one block from each of the 16 quilts. It gives the opportunity to see which block most appeals to you, I think. After finishing the sampler, I knew that I wanted to do […]

The Quilt Police

On Monday I took a drive down to Eau Claire, WI for some quilting-related errands.  For Christmas this year my parents bought me an electric cutting tool, which is great for applique type projects, but isn’t quite handy for the type of quilts I make.  My dad (who is AWESOME, by the way) had anticipated […]
