My Stitch Along for May Week 1

Posted by Ruth on 3 May 2015 | 0 Comments

Tags:

I always love starting a new challenge, mainly because I don't know where I'm going to end up with it. Some work well, others not so well. Those that do often are the makings of a pattern or new design so if nothing else, this is a good opportunity to explore, so come on and join in. If you missed this week's rules, they are easy enough. Just check back and get started. Week One Rules...

A Color Wash with Sunflowers

Posted by Ruth on 28 April 2015 | 0 Comments

Some quilters like color wash quilts while others prefer applique. I designed a number of quilts that incorporate both these. One is my most popular design "Simply Sunflowers" (available as pattern) which I also present as an online class at the Academyofquilting.com .... and we know every quilt has to have its own unique name right? So for my online workshop edition, I named it "Sunflowers at Dawn".

Life here in Paducah Kentucky (Quilt City USA) is settling back to normal today after a wonderful crazy week of quilts, quilts, quilts. Quilt week here brings an additional 30, 000 visitors to town, and all are in search of quilts and a good time. For myself it was a week filled with having my own work on exhibit, giving demos, signing books, making new friends and spending some time with old quilt buds.quilt week demo at Paducah with Rose Hughes

My April Stitch Along week 4

To finish up this week I needed to change the shape of my project, but first I needed to trim it square. My thought was to make a hexagon so to get it close to accurate, I trimmed the background to 10.5" square, then I marked the sides into thirds. 3.5" worked perfectly with the 10.5".trimmed up ready to cut to hexagon shape

This is the last week for our April Stitch along. For our last week we usually finish off our piece, but let's make it a little different this time. Instead of making a square or rectangular shape, change it out to something a little different.

Hi, folks! Well, this has been a wild week. I'm staying with relatives while I recuperate from elbow surgery. I had no idea just how much not being able to use one "wing" could complicate simple daily tasks!
