Quilt Blog Shout Out

Seminole Sampler quilt shop in Catonsville, Maryland has a blog to keep their customers updated on news and items from the store. Today’s post is about tweet’s that they wanted to share.

My Two Colored Quilt Pattern is number 47 on the list. Since they mentioned me I thought I would do the same for them. There is a great list of tutorials to check out.

WIP Wall Hanging

I need help…..I started this wall hanging and I’m just not happy with the way it is. I want to do something to the heart blocks but I’m not sure what. Maybe appliques some solid colored hearts in the middle or some yo-yo’s. Anyone else have a better idea. I am almost ready to just scrap it.

Here is a picture of my new hair do. I cut off about 7 inches. LOL. I know I’m crazy. It is just so thick. This hair do is much easier to deal with.

I made this anvil block for a swap on Swap-Bot.

Here is my baby helping me clean the bathroom last week. He has a fascination with brooms and mops. LOL. I hope it lasts.

I signed up on line to make a quilt for the Quilts for Kids project. Downy is a sponsor. I got my kit in the mail today UPS. I knew I would get a kit for a boy. The fabrics are adorable. All I have to do is sew it together and supply the batting. Oh and quilt it. Thanks Jerrie for sending me the link for this.

Two Color Strip Quilt Pattern

It took about 3 hours and a few kid friendly distractions to write the instructions for this free quilt pattern today. It looks more complicated than it really is. It is made up of 6 1/2 x 12 1/2 inch blocks and 12 1/2 inch blocks. If you can sew squares and rectangles you can make this quilt. If you have any questions please email me@ holly@fabricmom.com.

Just wanted to note that the fabric requirements are 3 yards of the beige and 4 of the red. This is a little over estimated for error.

Tooth #2

Joshua lost his second tooth today. It has been hanging on very stubbornly for a while. Now he gets a visit from the tooth fairy.

Projects in the Works

I am designing some quilt patterns for My Quilting Buddies online quilt guild. We have a jelly roll swap were we swap 10 strips per partner. I thought it would be great to have some FREE PATTERNS for people to use with these 2 1/2 inch strips. I have searched the internet for some free patterns and haven’t come across many. I am also going to create some quilt patterns using 5 inch charms from charm packs. We have a swap for this also. We swap 10 5 inch squares per partner.

Here is a scrappy friendship star quilt I am making a free pattern for.

Hopefully I will get some time soon to create the directions and put them in down loadable PDF format.

Happy Sewing.

Free Motion Stitched Fleece Scarf

My first project of the year was making myself a scarf. I bought some black fleece to make one. I cut it 9 inches wide and left it the length it was already. I think 60 inches. I cut the ends to make four inches of fringe. It is so soft and warm. I showed my dad and he asked, “where his was”? I took the other 9 inches and made him one. He wanted checkered flags on his. After much consideration I bit the bullet and tried my hand at free motion stitching on the scarf. It isn’t perfect by any means. However it turned out pretty good. He is happy with it. I wish I had some money lying around for an embroidering machine. That would be nice. Then I would need a shop out back to set up all my machines. I am out growing my laundry room fast. Anyone want to donate? LOL. Just kidding.
