New Magazine Quilt, quilt as you go lap quilt

Simply Vintage Winter 2020 Is Now Available

Another Quiltmania publication is now available!

I have a lap quilt & a table runner in this issue!

Simplify is a quilt-as-you-go lap quilt.

The adorable runner can also be made

quilt-as-you-go.

When I designed & made this,

I let the appliqué stitch also be the quilting.

If you look closely you’ll see clouds in the sky.

They add quilting in those areas.

I know clever, right? lol

Although this quilt is an earlier pattern of mine,

I think it speaks to these times right now.

It’s definitely the time to simplify life, now!

Stay home & stay safe.

Spend the holidays not sharing COVID

so we can enjoy many more holidays together, please!

A Giveaway!, My Life, New Magazine Quilt

Beautiful Dreamer in Primitive Quilts & Projects & A Give-Away

Do you subscribe to

Primitive Quilts & Projects Magazine?

Summer 2020

If so, you’ve probably already seen my

Beautiful Dreamer

on page 36.

I got my copy yesterday!

Summer 2020

I designed a new “flower” with my 2 templates;

Tiny Dresden Plate

 

& Mini Dresden Plate.

 

 

I think it’s my favorite of all the plates that I’ve created.

It doesn’t hurt that I used a lot of my favorite

Barbara Brackman & Jo Morton prints.

 

The flowers came first,

then the Tiny Dresden pile of petals.

 

This is my favorite antique cutlery tray.

I have a few…

It helps ALL of my little petals

get transported from my cutting table

to my ironing board,

to my sewing machine

& back again

without getting lost!

 

 

Lots of fun steps involved

but the most important step for making flat plates

is finding the scant 1/4″ seam on your sewing machine.

If you’re unsure,

the Perfect Piecing Seam Guide by Perkins Dry Goods is great.

You can find them on my notions page.

Aren’t the Tiny plates lovely???

BTW, I travel to teach all of my tips & techniques for perfect little plates.

 

 

 

See my workshop/lecture page on my website for pricing, etc.

 

Making the center circles is a snap with these tools:

  • Apliquick Bars
  • Roxanne Glue-Baste-It or Bohin glue pen
  • freezer paper
  • circle paper cutter
  • Clover’s Bordeaux scissors
  • my Classic Metal Signs plastic coated brochure…

 

They all help me to succeed with making perfectly round centers!

 

 

Let’s not forget the tiny blind hem stitch on my machine

that makes the applique look like it’s done by hand,

except I can do it on my machine in a snap instead of a lifetime!

 

 

I have to say making fabric choices

is probably the toughest part of this quilt!

I  always worry about how the fabrics will photograph.

 

 

You can purchase a copy of the magazine at

Primitive Quilts & Projects for just $9.99.

Summer 2020
