Star Light Star Bright

Progress on Night Sky is coming along nicely!  All the stars are done...welllllll, I have six seams left on the white/silver stars but the stars are basically done.  Now I just have to add the sashing...frame....borders?  Whatever the black pieces around the stars is called.  That is my quilty goal for July.  To get the...

Look How They Shine For You

Previously I talked about starting my Jaybird journey with Gazebo.  With that done, I'm on to Night Sky. Like Gazebo, this is much simpler than it looks.  Night Sky uses the Sidekick ruler, which has a bunch of lines all over it as well. But once you understand how it works and use it, it's...

Quilty Box (April 2018)

Sometimes I have really great self control when it comes to impulse buying.  Other times, not so much. A good example of this is when Olfa gave a sneak peek of the April Quilty Box.  They announced that their new Pink Splash rotary cutter would be in the April Quilty Box and my self control...

Bird Watching

I've officially started my quilt journey with Jaybird Quilts.  And boy, it looks like I'm gonna journey pretty far. I've mentioned before that I received the Gravity kit at Christmas 2017 (very excited) but, in all honesty, it's a pretty intimidating quilt.  I know a few fabulous quilters who have made Gravity and they all...

Cut It Out

Variety is the spice of life.  That's what they say.  Clearly, that's why I have 5 rotary cutters. Also, because they are just so pretty. I've actually added one more...the new pink Olfa Splash cutter (which I received in a Quilty Box but more on that in another post).  What I really want to talk... Continue Reading →

The Quilt on the Edge of Forever

Because I'm a nerd, I decided I wanted a Star Trek quilt.   I had seen a quilt on Esty made up of HST (think Postcard from Sweden but with red, blue, gold, and black).  I liked the look of the random placement of the HST but I wanted something more....nerdy.  So I designed this quilt. ...

Don’t Get It Twisted

Protip: When it says read the full pattern before starting, read the full pattern before starting. Twisted Ribbons is a pattern by Katie Rock that was in an issue of Quilty.  It's just flying geese, half square triangles (yay), and rectangle blocks.  I was going to make it scrappy...well, scrappy to the best of my...

Hello 2018!

It's hard to believe that it's 2018! It seems like 2017 went by way too quick.  I also realize I kind of dropped the ball on the whole blogging thing (I went like 5-6 months without posting anything) but this year I'm going to try and do better. I hope everyone had a great holiday... Continue Reading →

Don’t Bargello Me

The Arnprior Guild had three challenges last year: Crayon challenge, 10 inch block challenge, and the President's Challenge.  I didn't participate in the President's challenge but I did participate in the other two. With the Crayon challenge we had to pick a crayon from a bag and make anything using only that colour/colour family (white... Continue Reading →
