Last year for Halloween I made this quilt: It’s made from my AmpersAnd pattern, and instead of appliquéing the ampersand on it, I drew […]

September 350 Blocks Report

September 350 Blocks Report

I’ve been in complete denial that September is already over, and that we’re already at the SECOND day of October! How can that be? I had another slow block-making month, but since I’m a bit ahead, that’s OK. But seriously — can you believe we only have 3 more months left in 2017? I’m already […]

Fall Into Autumn

For the last week, we’ve had temps in the high 80s and 90s, with heat indices of 100 degrees or more, but in spite of that, the first day of fall has come and gone! This is my favorite time of year. It’s a great time to stitch up some new fall projects, so to get […]

How Did You Quilt That?

How Did You Quilt That?

I’ve been getting asked this question ever since the modern color version of the Sew Sweet Sampler made its debut . . . So today, I’m here to explain my process of quilting it. It’s a medallion quilt . . . The modern setting, altho NOT asymmetrical, leaves lots of negative space for quilting. I […]

August 350 Blocks Report

Posted on September 1, 2017 by prairiemoonquilts in 350 Blocks Project

I sure hope your August was more productive than mine for block making. I have a big, fat ZERO for this month to add to my total. I kinda knew this would happen. I’ve mostly been at the longarm or pattern writing. That doesn’t leave much piecing time. I hope to do much better than […]

Modern Quilt Magic

It’s finally here!! Victoria Findlay Wolfe’s new book is out! It’s called Modern Quilt Magic, and these quilts really look like they take magic to make, but she breaks it down and makes them really simple. Stunning results with simple techniques — what could be better? I think I’ve been more anxious for this one […]

I recently finished quilting a Gravity quilt for my friend, Linda. You may have seen this pattern before — it’s by Julie Herman of Jaybird Quilts, and it’s 97″ x 96″ and chock full of glorious color! This was my first chance to quilt a Gravity quilt, and Linda wants to enter it into some […]
