Sister Sampler Quilt Along – Curves

Anne Marie Chany of the Gen X Quilters blog recently released a book entitled Sister Sampler Quilts.  The book contains 3 projects with interchangeable blocks that are designed to be completed with the help of a sister or other partner.  Each partner makes the blocks in pairs, one of which will be swapped.  This results …

Crossroads – a Quilt Along for the March of Dimes

Each year the Fat Quarter Shop organizes a quilt along to benefit a worthy charity. This year they have introduced Crossroads to benefit the March of Dimes.  This was designed with the generous help of Joanna Figueroa of Fig Tree & Co. and showcases her new Moda Fabrics collection called Strawberry Fields Revisited. A complete kit …

Project 48 – a Quilt Along for 2016

Finished school in December. Took a short break from everything. Now I have gone off the deep end and started not one but four (maybe five) quilt alongs for the new year. The first one is Project 48. Linden and Crystal (I think they are in Australia) and 24 of their quilting friends have designed …

Family Heirloom Wallhanging

The family heirloom wallhanging is complete.  It looks so small on the wall!  The final measurements are 15-1/2 x 15-1/2. The center block was hand pieced by my husband’s grandmother, Mary Lee Anna Mize Womack, who passed away in 1986 in Louisiana.  The HST’s were made from Kona Denim, Windsor and White.  The batting is Warm …

Generations

A few months ago my husband’s cousin contacted some family members and asked if they would be interested in some quilt blocks that had been hand pieced by their grandmother, Mary Lee Anna Mize Womack (1897-1986), affectionately known as Mama Womack.  She had just enough of them to go around to all the first generation …

Swooning…Not So Much

Here is my first attempt at making a Swoon block designed by Camille Roskelley.  The fabric is Hometown by Sweetwater for Moda.  I think I may have bitten off more than I can chew for right now. My points look pretty good – for the most part.  A few need to be redone.  It’s the seam bulk …

a stitch in color Windows

I had some reservations about Malka Dubrawsky’s “a stitch in color” for Moda Fabrics.  I’ve been a fan of her pillow designs for a long time but I generally don’t care for the bold hand painted look represented by her first line of fabrics.  That is until I saw the pillow she made with them. And …

Authentic Jelly Roll

This was my second quilt using the Authentic line by Sweetwater for Moda.  The Jelly Roll 1600 pattern can be found on numerous web sites and there are Jelly Roll race videos on YouTube.  I can’t remember where I saw it first but it seemed like it would be a good project for getting back …

Aggie Patchwork

This quilt was an unexpected challenge.  It was based on a design we saw at Lone Star Quiltworks in College Station (Bryan really).  The novelty fabric (four different prints) did not have as tight a weave as quilt quality fabric.  I had a lot of issues with stretching, shifting and raveling.  It’s a bit out of …
