Figure Eight Quilt

If I had to pick my favourite thing about this quilt, it would be the bicycle print fabric!  The colors are fun, and certainly the quilting was fun, but honestly, those bicycles ... I had all the solids in stock and was looking for a grey background and for some reason the picture on the… Continue reading Figure Eight Quilt

A “Summer Quilt” + video

I worked on a few quilts for a regular client in BC this past week; one of them she calls her "summer quilt".  Of course there was one part where I had the most fun of all and if you guessed it was in that solid white border then you really have been paying attention… Continue reading A “Summer Quilt” + video

If you're following anything "quilty" online recently you've probably seen a few versions of this beautiful digitally printed panel from Hoffman fabrics.  They're kind of a big deal!  The colors are gorgeous and they have lots of potential for creative stitching.

Longarm free motion quilting in manual mode + video

Since I got my longarm I've been using the regulated stitching mode to keep my stitches looking consistent through my learning curve - it's a bit of a brain twist to go from free motion quilting on the sit down machine to doing it on the longarm because they are very different processes.  But recently… Continue reading Longarm free motion quilting in manual mode + video

If you can handle not knowing what your quilt is going to look like when it's all done, or even your individual blocks for that matter, then give this a try.  You… Continue reading Modern Improv Block Quilt

More from the Woodlands …

I feel like there should be music playing as you read this, like the theme song from Hinterland Who's Who? ... if you don't know what that is, you're either not from Canada  or you're still a young pup.  It's a classic.  In our house it's more of a long standing joke, but let's say… Continue reading More from the Woodlands …

Improv Composition 1 + video – and Pinterest Adventure Days 17 thru 24

I'm giving myself permission to use this quilt post to make up for several Pinterest Adventure days!  It was time for me to stitch something wide open and I've been wanting to incorporate various ideas I've seen into a modern whole cloth quilt so I knocked off a few saved pins in this one, along… Continue reading Improv Composition 1 + video – and Pinterest Adventure Days 17 thru 24

Longarm Custom Baby Quilt + video

I don't often do custom work on a baby quilt, but this one called for something special and I wanted to make those white triangles pop so I opted for some straight lines in the printed areas and, of course, feathers for the white!  I LOVE white on white.  I love stitching it out and… Continue reading Longarm Custom Baby Quilt + video
