Chopping Up a Quilt

Posted by Ruth on 8 October 2018 | 2 Comments

Tags:

Why would I want to chop up a quilt? Literally, I don't but it is fun to imagine what we can create by chopping one up. This idea came to me while creating my last challenge and not knowing what to do with the final piece. The finished project was not something I particularly wanted to display, so I had the idea of chopping it up for coasters. You can check that blog post out here if you want.

Hey, do you have one of those scenic fabrics or large prints that you just don't want to cut into? Most of us do so today I want to share with you one way you can preserve that beautiful fabric by showcasing it in a quilt but still enjoy cutting it up so it is not just sitting in your stash waiting to be used.

Winter Projects are Perfect with Winter Food

We all know that winter is a great time to quilt. Staying indoors by a cozy fire, out of the weather is definitely the choice option. Of course, staying indoors in summer out of the blazing heat is also a perfect time to quilt - in fact, when isn't there a perfect time to quilt? .... but one of the things I love about winter quilting so winter foods and one of my favorite is soup - nothing better on a cold winter day, smelling the soup simmering away as I quilt. My all-time favorite is Pumpkin soup!

July has been a very creative month for me. I've been working on a number of different designs. Earlier this month it was a Bargello and this week something completely different. One I have named as "April Showers". Here's a sneak preview showing off some of the colors and stitching I've been doing.

Tissue Paper Quilting

Posted by Ruth on 19 June 2018 | 0 Comments

Today I thought I would demonstrate how easy it is to quilt a design without marking your quilt top. I never trust those markers and even if I did, it can be quite difficult drawing on the fabric anyway. Drawing on tissue paper is much easier.
