An “All-Star” Quilt

An all-star is the athlete who has it all and looks great doing it....and I am thinking that this newest quilt fits that description. When you take fabulous fabric (prints, colors, the whole package) and mix it with an interesting design that's also super fun to sew, THAT is an all-star quilt! Today is my turn on the tour of projects to show off the new Everlasting fabric collection by Sharon Holland for Art Gallery Fabric. Sharon was inspired by the idea of marriage, of "everlasting" love. That romance is reflected in the fabric, and the whole collection is gorgeous. I...

Two Color Quilts: Better Than…

Two color quilts (specifically black and white) are better than I expected! I thought it was going to be more challenging for me to avoid using ANY color but black and white in a WHOLE quilt. I suppose that my love of pattern and the amazing variety of super cool B & W fabrics made up for the lack of color. I've seen a few projects come up for the Color Girl Challenge 2019 (#colorgirlchallenge2019 if you're on Instagram or FB). What do you think? could you make a quilt with only two colors? Sadly, I had planned on having my...

We *heart* Curves! A Quilting How-To

It's no secret that orange peel is my favorite quilt shape. Playing around with ways to arrange these blocks and creative placement of colors creates interesting designs. There's now a two part video series on Color Girl YouTube showing how to make a cute little orange peel quilt. This tutorial takes you through using the Classic Curves Ruler for cutting, piecing the blocks, squaring up and putting it all together. For our two color challenge (#colorgirlchallenge2019) week two, let's look at how this little quilt looks in black and white! I've figured up fabric requirements for making this striking quilt...
