Tips Quilting Delights Create Beautiful Textile Art – When I first signed up for the hop, I envisioned a taco themed quilt with lots of triangles, but then the taco fabric I ordered never arrived. It was out of stock…bummer. On to plan B. But I didn’t have a plan B, so I started thinking…
Last year one of my sons said he wanted a picnic blanket. I asked him what a picnic blanket looked like. He said it could look like anything, just something to take on a picnic. I explained to him the life cycle of a blanket and that most picnic blankets that are normally put on the ground have already lived a long life before they become picnic blankets. He said he wanted a new blanket, he didn’t want to wait for its life cycle to become a picnic blanket. So I got to work on a new picnic blanket.

I’ve been wanting to make this particular Diamond Irish Chain quilt for a while, and I figured it would be perfect for a picnic quilt. I showed my son the picture and asked if it would qualify and he agreed, but he wanted it a little bigger. The photo I showed him was a smaller quilt. This one is 67 inches square, big enough to seat two people.

The large half square triangles are quite large and make up a 9 inch diamond block, and the center nine spots in the chain blocks are three inches! I love the little bits! Lots of fun playing with scraps big and small for this one.
My son’s favorite color is orange so I used orange strips to fill in the rest of the back and the green strips help bring out the flavor of the pizza sausage and peppers.
I fell behind a bit while waiting for the taco fabric, which never came, so I didn’t have enough time to quilt this, but it’s almost ready to go. You just have to prepare the batting and put it on the frame!

Are you a beginner quilter? I got your back! These blocks use the usual division techniques – only one block requires the simplest piece of paper on the corners. You already have everything you need at home to cook…

What if you have a pile of color-matched pieces, but they aren’t the same? Can you combine blocks, crumbs and braids? Well, you can try.
Fabric Collage Finish Line #84
I used the existing crumbs as a starting point. They measure 6-1/2 inches. Cutting, twisting and flipping the braids yielded enough pieces to make seven more blocks. 9 blocks are enough for a baby blanket. NOTE. This same pattern can be made using any 6-1/2 inch blocks you may have laying around.

Quilting Cosmos – Quilting Pebble Background Fill and Rulers for an EPIC Quilt! from Quilt Addicts Anonymous
When I took on the task of quilting Cosmos by Stephanie Brennan using my fabric collection Nocturne, I knew it had to be epic.
I chose separate quilting designs for each border, all three blocks and the background. I chose an organic pebble background fill and then used sharp ruler lines for the rest of the quilt to make the block and border design elements stand out from the background.

I had exactly one day to quilt Celestial, our latest Stashin’ with Stephanie quilt. So I needed a quilting design that would be both quick and do justice to the spectacular diamonds throughout the length of the quilt. I ended up with something I lovingly call the Wavy Line Special.
I followed the shape of the diamonds to cover five wavy lines inside each diamond in the quilt blocks and seven lines inside each background diamond. It was very quick and easy with a little ruler to travel across the diamonds.

This month’s new Fat Quarter-friendly pattern is inspired by this month’s featured fabric, Zen, by Sue Zipkin for Clothworks.
Celestial is one of my favorite types of quilt designs that looks a lot more complicated than it really is. The blocks are pieced together using strips and no Y seams, so the quilt top comes together very quickly.
The original is made with special fabric placements to create beautiful color changes that repeat in each block. But it could also be scrapped.

Some of you know that my school offers the kids a learning experience known as Intensive Learning. During the week before Christmas and the last week of spring, students do not attend regular classes. (Honestly, what is really being done in class at that time?) Rather, each student chooses from a menu of classes and attends one course throughout the week. On offer are theatre, music, rock climbing, engineering, local history and… sewing!
Last week during spring break I prepared samples for spring
