SCRAPPY 4 PATCH QUILT (or diving into that scrap bin)

SCRAPPY 4 PATCH QUILT (or diving into that scrap bin)

Many of us have been in “stay at home” or quarantine mode for several weeks at this point. The situation can make for some creative solutions to quilting when it comes to supplies. I was going through my scrapbook of quilts recently and this quilt, Scrappy 4 Patch Quilt (or diving into that scrap bin), was made in a similar manner just because of my location then. I lived in Germany (then West Germany) from 1985-1989. As a quilter, supplies…

SCRAPPY TUMBLERS QUILT

SCRAPPY TUMBLERS QUILT

Are you looking for a simple pattern that can be done in any color combo? What about using lots of scraps? How about easy to put together? This Scrappy Tumblers quilt is the answer to all those questions. I have been working on another tumbler quilt from scraps that will look totally different (hint: look at the very bottom of this post for current photo). Anyway, I went looking for photos of the Scrappy Tumblers quilt to share with you…

LONG MAY SHE WAVE QUILT

LONG MAY SHE WAVE QUILT

This quilt, Long May She Wave, started out several years ago with the purchase of the directions and 4 screen printed old patriotic (fabric) postcards. I wanted to make a patriotic wall hanging that did not require a whole lot of work or time. Good intentions, right? After buying, I brought the packet home, found coordinating fabric to use, and promptly lost the package. It has not to be seen for several years despite looking all over for it. This…

HAPPY HIBERNATION QUILT (or using those crumbs & strips – Part 2)

I am back to share Part 2 of the Happy Hibernation Quilt which is a fun and cheerful way to beat all the ugly news about COVID-19 on the news. I am trying to remain upbeat and content during this stressful time. Hopefully quilting is helping you through this very odd time as well. **At the bottom of this post are photos of this quilt after it is machine quilted in early 2021.** In the previous post (https://indianaquilter40.com/happy-hibernation-quilt-or-using-those-crumbs-strips-part-1) I gave…

HAPPY HIBERNATION QUILT (or using those crumbs & strips – Part 1)

The news at this point is full of the COVID-19 pandemic. Hopefully quilting is helping you get through this anxious time and giving you a positive project to work on. What are you doing for “quarantine” quilting? I have been working on this crumb/string/strip quilt that I am calling my Happy Hibernation Quilt Part 1 (or using those crumbs & strips). I googled “quilting trends 2020” this morning thinking there would be several posts on other blogs about “quarantine” quilts…

QUILT SHOW IN PADUCAH, KY 2006 (part 2)

QUILT SHOW IN PADUCAH, KY 2006 (part 2)

Is it possible to over-dose on quilts and all things “quilty”? I believe most quilters would say no. Quilters seem to go to quilt shows to see other quilts and buy wonderful fabrics and other supplies. Here is more of the beautiful Quilt Show in Paducah, KY 2006 (part 2). In today’s world the term is “network” with other quilters. You know – trade ideas of what this particular fabric could be used for. Or how easy/difficult that pattern is….

FINALLY FINISHED: FLOWERS & TUMBLERS (part 4)

FINALLY FINISHED: FLOWERS & TUMBLERS (part 4)

This quilt started out as…well, not what it ended up. It is sections made of left-over parts from other quilts. However, it is finally finished: Flowers & Tumblers !!!! The machine quilting has been done for a couple months, but I couldn’t decide what color or fabric to bind it in. I finally decided to continue the left-over idea and go with making a binding of pieces of other bindings that there is not enough of to do any complete…
