I’m thrilled to show off my latest finish – the Link Pixel Quilt. If you’ve been following along, you’ll know that this quilt has been created to be auctioned off at MAGFest to support Child’s Play. I’ve charted my progress in several previous posts. The quilt is roughly queen size, with each pixel finishing at 2.5″ square. There are 1,470 squares …

WIP Wednesday: Not enough hours in the day

carla Charity, Quilting 2 Comments

I’m at the point where there aren’t enough hours in the day between my day job, prepping for MAGFest, packing for a weekend trip, and sewing. We even had a “snow day” yesterday, but really I had to telework instead of sew all day. Friday I was home and managed to get labels put on to my Nurture Circle Swap …

Quilt Top: Link Pixel Quilt

I’m thrilled to show off my latest finished quilt top – a pixel quilt. It has actually been done for nearly a week, but I had been holding off with the hope the weather would hold out this weekend so I could get an outside photo. Unfortunately it looks like we’re in for  a washout so these will have to …

WIP Wednesday: It’s dangerous to go alone! Take this.

carla Charity, Quilting 2 Comments

Over the last two weeks I’ve been very productive. I’ve finished my first major free motion quilting (FMQ). I showcased my very first one two weeks ago. Here’s the second – same loopy floral-ish pattern, but on a smaller scale this time (3″ squares instead of 5″ squares). I worked on connecting my flowers better and moving along instead of …

Yesterday at the DCMQG sewing day in Arlington, VA I was able to bind the remaining three quilts in my 100 Quilts for Kids stack. Two are based on my Supersized Scrap Vomit tutorial and the third is my Super Swoon! I really love how my Super Swoon turned out. The prints are from Dear Stella Ikebana and the solid …

Finished: 100 Quilts For Kids (Part 1)

I finished putting the binding on five of the eight quilts remaining for 100 Quilts for Kids. That just leaves three more between the DCMQG sewing day tomorrow and Sunday to finish them. I think I did pretty well. I used up a lot of fabric (although it doesn’t seem to have made much of a dent in my stash!), …

If you’ve been reading my blog posts over the last couple of months you know I’ve been working on creating quilts for 100 Quilts for Kids hosted by my guild-mate Katie at Swim, Bike, Quilt. My Supersized Scrap Vomit is an easy, quick pattern that can be whipped up in an afternoon —  and there’s still time to make and …

Work in Progress Wednesday: Bits and bobs

carla Charity, Fabric, Quilting 4 Comments

I’ve been working on things here and there. I went over to Amy’s for a belated birthday hangout and she generously offered 2.5″ strips of 125 green fabrics for my “green” quilt. I’ve decided to use Camille Roskelly’s pattern “Swell” from her new book Simply Retro. There are some really special pieces and I’m very excited about it.   After …
