I’m almost done! I still have to finish the last two corners, but it’s coming together quite nicely! I just love this silky print fabric! I know a lot of people say you can’t mix fabrics, but I’ve always been a renegade! I’ll admit, it wasn’t as easy as working with regular quilting fabric, but it also wasn’t terrible. Hopefully I’ll finish up the top this weekend! Wish me luck!

Untitled Blooming 9 Patch With Mixed Fabric

17 Apr

Last month was about working on quilts with knit fabric. This month is all about the silky print polyester! This piece is about one third of the way done, and hopefully I’ll have an updated photo for you by the end of the week. I’ll be honest it wasn’t easy, but now that I have it down, I’m really finding it easy to work with. I made a promise to myself to use of fabric in my stash, and this silky print has been in it for quite a while. there are about 5 bolts of other polyester fabrics I want to use up, and trust me, I already have designs for them, just need the time to sew them! Wish me luck!

Go From Simple 9 Patch to Fabulous Really Quickly

2 Oct

So, as I sit at home with the flu, I wonder what can I sew that doesn’t require much work… My embroidery machine is in the shop, so that’s out, and then I decided to make a simple table runner. It’s not much, and I’m still contemplating a border or not. It was late last night when I finished sewing it, so I decided not to quilt it and leave that for later today, when I get home from work. I do love a good disappearing 9 patch.  It’s such an easy thing to do to spice up a block! What do you guys and gals think: Border or not?

Redwork Blooming 9 Patch Is Finished!

4 Aug

I finished this scrappy looking work of art! I’m just in love with it! I really hope the customer this is for will be as pleased as I am. It really inspired me to do another 9 patch. This next one is going to be a bit “crazy” if you catch my drift!

Watching Netflix And Sewing

2 Aug

I’ve been binge watching “Hot Wet American Summer: First Day of Camp” on Netflix. It’s so bad, it’s good! Also while this amazing senseless drivel is pouring out of my laptop speakers, I’ve been sewing away on this Blooming 9 Patch! I just love the red-work vibe it’s giving off! The customer who ordered it said Red and White and do what I want. I’m so happy when people give me creative license. I feel so awesome about this quilt! I’ve almost got it all together, and hopefully I’ll start quilting it by tonight! Wish me luck!

Dual Star: A New Kind Of Blooming 9 Patch

26 Jan

So everyone remembers Frozen Star. Well this is kind of like that, but different. Instead of one star, it’s going to be two. The background if going to be tan and brown. I’m not sure if I’m going to make both stars the same color or make each star a different color. What do you guys think? I’m either going to do both stars in turquoise, or one purple and one turquoise.

I think I Know How To Fix It

As everyone remembers, I was up in a  tizzy over this quilt top, which is for a very dear friend of mine, and I was just upset it wasn’t amazing. Well, I think I remedied the situation. I decided to use a brown for the border to make the center pop quite a bit more, and I really think it does. Once I finished sewing the top together, I’m going to stitch resist it in place and use bleach discharge and then blue fabric paint to make circles, which I think will really make it just that awesome! I hope this all works out as well as I hope, and I really think it will.
