Here are some of the sponsors for the BIG prize that you can win at the end of the quilt along.

And now for block 5.

This block is designed by Sherry Shish from Powered By Quilting (click this link for the pattern download page). It is the Snowman block.

Fabric selection for this block.

I chose a nice bright green for the background, white for the snowman and red and black for the hat.

Here is my version of the block.

 

 

 

I chose green thread for the background fabric and invisible thread for the rest of the block.

Stitch in the ditch all the way around each item, like the hat, band, the scarf and snowman.

The nose is machine appliqued in place.

Then switch to your quilting or darning foot, and make a meander all over the background. Or be more creative, and quilt some snowflakes.

I Wish You A Merry Quilt Along Block Five Plus Prizes

For the snowman, I used some water erasable marker, and drew some pebble shapes on his body, and quilted the pebbles. The marks will wash out and leave a beautiful texture. The idea is that it would look like handfuls of snow patted down while you make your snowman.

I Wish You A Merry QAL Block 2 Plus Prizes

Wow! I was completely blown away by everyone’s Snowflakes these past 2 weeks. And I am so glad that some of you are quilting as you go with me. Super awesome.

Before I get to block 2, did you know! Beside the prizes you can win each week, there is also a big prize for everyone who posts a finished quilt at the end.

Here are some of the sponsors for the BIG prize that you can win at the end of the quilt along.

And now for block 2.

This block is designed by April Adams from Janda Bend Quilts. It is a Christmas Tree block and is inspired by their Christmas Tree farm. How cool is that.

You can download the pattern on April’s blog. Click on the name Janda Bend Quilts to go to her blog post and the pattern.

Fabric selection for this block.

I chose 3 different leafy greens for my trees and I nice neutral background. Plus a super piece of wood grain scrap, that I have been hoarding since the beginning of time. I just knew I was going to need that piece someday.

Here is my version of the block.

Tip for this block.

Make sure that you 1/4 inch seam is accurate. Otherwise you block will not come out at the correct size. Play around with your machine to find out where your 1/4 inch sits. I have a very old Bernina, where all the lines and grooves have nearly worn down. So I think I might measure and stick a strip down to use a s guide for future blocks.

Most of you who has followed me for awhile, will know that I LOVE paper piecing. Mainly because I just can’t get my 1/4 inch seam accurate enough for traditional piecing. I decided to try it this way for this tree block, and I don’t think I did to bad. My tree trunks are a bit on the short side.

Start by cutting out all the templates, then trace the shapes on the backside of you fabric with a fabric pencil or erasable marker. I used a water erasable marker here.

Cut out all the shapes. I used my rotary cutter, but you could use scissors.

The tree shapes are ready.

Follow all the instructions in the pattern you will download.

Quilt as you go…

In the beginning I decided to go quilt as you go with this quilt along. Thinking it would only be me. But wow, so many people are quilting as you go with me.  I just love it. You are all awesome.

So to continue with the QAYG method.

I decided to quilt little Christmas Trees into the blank blocks in between the trees.

 

I added some lines to the picture below so that you can see how I quilted it.

Starting on the left in the top row next the the tree trunk, go across, up the trunk, around the tree top, down the trunk and across to the next tree.

I Wish You A Merry Quilt Along Block One Plus Prizes

Hi everyone,

Welcome to Week 1 Block 1 of the Quilt Along. It has been so much fun designing for this quilt along and who doesn’t love Christmas.

Without further ado, here is block 1. A snowflake, I just could not resist making a snowflake. You see where I live in South Africa our Christmas falls in summer. And I would absolutely love to see a snow white Christmas.

I Wish You A Merry Quilt Along Block One Plus Prizes

For the snowflake I decided to design an applique pattern. It is super simple and easy to make.

You can download the pattern here. Plus clicking on the picture above will take you to the download page as well.

I have put together a tutorial for you to make it easier to follow the instructions.

Tutorial to make the Snowflake block

First you need to cut a 12 ½ inch square for the background. Because this is an applique block it will shrink a bit once appliqued, so cut your square slightly bigger. You can always trim the block down once you are finished.

Step 1:

Cut a 13 inch square of background fabric.

Iron out any wrinkles, then press your square into quarters, I will explain this a little later.

Step 2:

I chose to use raw edge applique.

Place your choice of applique paper (I used fusible applique) on top of the Snowflake template, you should be able to see through the paper or use a light table or press the paper and pattern to a window so that the light shines through.

Trace the patterns on the applique paper with a pencil. Then roughly cut out the pieces, ready to be ironed onto fabric.

Step 3:

Placing the glue side down onto the back of your chosen fabric. Iron it down with dry heat.
Make sure the glue has melted and that the paper is sticking to the fabric.

Step 4:

Cut out all the different shapes using your paper scissors, not your special fabric scissors. This will dull the edge of your fabric scissors.

Step 5:

Once all the pieces are cut out, you can start assembling the pattern.
Normally you will started from the bottom and work your way to the top piece.
Here I decided to place the center white circle down first.
DO NOT iron this yet. Just press down gently on the circle to keep it in place.
See you the quarter lines are coming in handy now.
I used the lines to center the circle nicely.

Step 6:

Place the the inner red circle and finger press it down to hold it in place.

Step 7:

Now place all the inner blades down, pushing the tip of the blade underneath the bigger circle to hold them in place.
I started to place the first one with it’s one edge ¼ inch from one of the creased lines in the background fabric. Continue laying them out.
Then place the larger blades down. Start with the four pieces that will fall on the crease lines. Making sure the top and bottom points are lying right on the crease line. Slip it down in between two smaller blades, until there is just a tiny space left between the smaller and larger blades.
Then place the last four blades. And you finished the pattern. Lightly press with your iron.Additional steps.

I decided to make this quilt with the quilt as you go method.

You could decide to applique the pattern down, by hand or by machine using a zig zag or satin stitch.

I will be using a satin stitch for most of the applique on my machine, once my block is finished I sandwich it and use the satin stitch on my machine. This way I am quilting the block as I am appliqueing the pattern pieces.

To start I have cut some scrap batting lying around in my batting bin. I found two pieces that will work for this block and just need to stitch the together. There are many different ways to put scrap batting together. Using a very loose, large zig zag, I just pull the two edges together on my machine and zig zag all the way.

Sandwich you backing, the batting and your block together and lightly baste them together.

You could use spray baste or pins, whichever is easiest for you. I chose pin basting, as the block is so small.

Stitch the bottom circle first.

Then all the smaller blades.

Now the larger blades.

That inner circle need red thread, I think.

This is what the back looks like.
I wanted the stitches to show up on the back, looking good.

You could use invisible thread so that none of your stitches will show up on the front or the back.

Snip of all your threads.

And there you have the finished block, already quilted, using an applique stitch on the machine.
I might add some more quilting, once all the blocks have been put together.

You can download this tutorial right here.

Questions and answers.

Do you have to make every block?

No! You don’t have, but it would be awesome if you do. This is laid back and meant to be fun! Make the ones you want! You will be eligible to win the bi-weekly prize for each block you complete.

Is this for experienced quilters only?

Definitely not! The quilt along is for everybody! Every block is unique and uses various techniques. That’s why we started a Facebook group – so we can all help each other be successful! Whether you’re new or seasoned, I’m sure you’ll find this an exciting and fun experience!

Can you see the blocks beforehand?

Nope! We are only releasing one block at a time. This way is more fun, nearly like a MYSTERY!

Who can participate?

You! The bloggers are scattered all across the globe, so we hope to have participants from many countries around the world too! International participants are eligible for all the prizes too! Isn’t that just fantastic.

Can I still participate if I’m not on Facebook?

Absolutely! If you’re on Instagram, use #iwishyouamerryqal to be entered to win. Each designer will also have a linky party on their block post so you can link up blog posts or Flickr photos. If you want to sew along, we will find a way!

What are the prizes?

There are so many! It’s best to keep an eye on the Facebook group, as we will begin sharing the prizes there soon! Just some of the prizes include

You won’t want to miss a single week!

How much fabric do you need?

The amount of fabric you will need depends on your fabric choices and how you decide to lay out the blocks. The blocks will each be 12″ finished (12 1/2″ unfinished) and there will be 12 of them. You might be able to make the whole quilt from fabrics you have in your stash!

If you choose to make a lap size quilt with all 12 blocks and use a classic 3″ lattice with 6″ border for the layout, then you will need approximately 1 1/4 yd. for the lattice strips, 1 1/4 yd. for the border, 3 1/2 yd. for the backing, and 2/3 yd. for the binding. However, these are approximate yardages and depend on the exact size of your lattice and borders.

I am thinking of going just from the stash for this one.

Ok, you want to do it! Now what?

Yay!!

  • First, join the Facebook group so you’ll know when each block is released.
  • Second, gather the fabrics you might want to use for your quilt. The quilt-a-long starts August 1st!
  • Lastly, invite your friends! Share the quilt-a-long graphic on Instagram and use #iwishyouamerryqal. Share this blog post or a post from the Facebook group on your own Facebook account and in your quilty groups. A party’s more fun with friends!

Which techniques will be used?

There will be pieced and applique blocks. And can make just the pieced or just the applique blocks. We are making 1 of each of the 12 blocks, but you could choose your favorite and make more than 1 each.

How long will the patterns be free?

For the duration of the Quilt Along, so download the patterns while you can.


I look forward to seeing you joining in the fun.

Look out for my post on 1 August 2017 with the very first pattern.

Majestic Lions

Standard

A quick and easy block.

Today I share a finished block of Majestic Lions. This block is a free pattern on Fandom in Stitches.

Jennifer Ofenstein posted for help, asking for sewn blocks of the Broadway Lion for a quilt she is making for a young man moving into his own apartment.

I was more than happy to help, the block is very quick and easy to make. And I had fun making him.

Mine went of in the post this morning and hopefully will reach her in about 2 weeks.


What else have been up to?

I finished off a commissioned quilt for a lady, it took 4 weeks, from piecing the quilt top to quilting it on my domestic machine, this took longer than it did piecing the pattern together. There is a lot of straight line stitching on the quilting.

The original quilt looked like this

You can find this pattern on

Craftsy


And some secret sewing for Fantastic Beasts 2, Christmas Caroling Row Along and 2 other events not finalized yet.


Some more plans in action with Jennifer Ofenstein for next year, watch this space!


And my latest TTMT video where I talk about all this and more.

Have a happy crafty week.

Star Trek Quilt Top Complete

Star Trek Quilt Top Complete

My fellow Star Trek fans, the quilt top is complete. I just need to find the perfect backing for it and get quilting.

Check it out, isn’t it the best thing you have ever seen?

Star Trek Quilt Top Complete

(really need to work on my quilt photography)

I will post a nice photo once the quilt top is quilted.

Most of the block patterns are mine, but there are some other designers in there as well. You can find them on my Star Trek page here.

Or on Fandom in Stitches

and Some can be found on Sewhooked

Originally I thought it would be a good idea to have both black and brown starry fabric for the background. It doesn’t look to bad, but I think I would have gone with just the black background.

Also these Star Trek patterns were some of the first patterns I designed when I just started designing. And there was no plan of action on anything at all. I just designed willy nilly.

So when it came time to put them all together it became a problem, I had to add fabric to some, and trim off on others to make them all fit together.

Since them I have planned all my quilt tops, to ligically fit together, so that it does not become a problem for other quilters to put together.

Now!

I know there has not been any new Star Trek patterns posted recently, but there is a reason for that. I a planning a Star Trek quilt along for 2018. It is themed The Next Generation. Whoohoo, my favorite series. So all the patterns being designed is specifically for the quilt along and cannot be share yet.

If you would like a quilt along based on the other series as well, no worries they are coming as well. But you can help me decide which one will be next.

Please comment below or fill in the the contact form below and let me know what type of Star Trek theme or a completely other theme you would like to see.

You can find me on Facebook

Dragon Quilt Adventure

The Dragon Quilt Adventure

Hey everyone,

In January I mentioned I was working on the Dragons, and I am finally finished. And my brother has received his dragon quilt, bonus he is very happy with it.

Here is a picture of all the dragons separately.

The Dragon Quilt Adventure The Dragon Quilt Adventure The Dragon Quilt Adventure The Dragon Quilt Adventure The Dragon Quilt Adventure The Dragon Quilt Adventure

I just love all these dragons, they were such fun to sew. They are all 12″ patterns and paper pieced.

Here is the finished quilt, just before I gave it to my brother, the photo obviously needs lots of improvement.

The Dragon Quilt Adventure

I did some pebbling on the dragon’s skin, and straight line stitching. The background is a small meander.

I used marble fabric for the sashing and pebble fabric for the binding strips. To attach all the blocks. The center panels was quilted separate to the borders. So it was semi quilt as you go.

All these patterns is designed by Michelle Thompson from misha29 are available for free.

Plus they are also available on the Fandom In Stitches.

And with this finished quilt I completed UFO #1. Whoohoo.

Now on to the next adventure.
