"Liz, you Garden Walk is gorgeous! I love the fabrics and colors. Can’t wait to see your basket quilt photos.
Deanna, sorry to hear about your heat issues. Our spring, summer, and fall have been unusually hot for our region, but thankfully not…"
"Thanks Riana! The sleigh was quite challenging on this one due to that really tight curve and how close it is to the body of the sleigh. The antlers on the reindeer were no joke either!
I haven't found the motivation to sew these things yet,…"
"I completed all the pieces and laid it out on the background for block #7 of the Baltimore Christmas quilt. This is called "midnight flight" and will have emboidered chain stitiches for the harness for the reindeer. I haven't gotten…"
"Thank you Liz, Kris and Riana. I’ve made several Bargello quilts. The process can be a bit tedious and boring, but the end results are just so cool that I keep doing them.
Kris, all of them are going to get Bargello in their favorite…"
"Another great quilt Kris! I love using minky backing, I just wish it came in 108 inch wide pieces so it didn't have to be pieced for larger bed-sized quilts.
How satisfying, Riana, to be nearing the end of such a large project.
"Too funny Kris, I am also making quilts for my grandsons. Also, all of them are going to be backed with Minky! I just finished cutting the strips for #3 of4 and delivered #2 today. I’m making them all large Bargello quilts. Figured they…"
"Beautiful quilt Kris! Your niece is a lucky girl. Ive been working on projects that aren’t on my UFO list. I’m trying to get new big quilts for my 4 grandsons before the end of the year. Just finished Bargello #2 (needs trimming and…"
" Thank you Elizabeth! He really is the sweetest boy. It is now his “new favorite blankie”!
I’ve sewn the Snowman block down (#4) and started sewing the Wreath block down (#5) and have completed all the pieces on the Christmas…"
"You're welcome Liz! I wish she had more videos, but there are probably others who use that method who have more of an online presence.
I love your needlework Riana. It is gorgeous!
I gave my grandson his green bargello when he came for a visit…"
"Hi Liz-These blocks are made using the off-the block freezer-paper and starch method. Pearl Piera of P3 designs uses it and has a few tips and techniques for doing these blocks. I do admit, I wish she had more detailed instructions with the pattern…"
"Me again! I have completed the preparing of pieces for Block #6 and have just the mittens left to sew down on the Snowman block (#4). Block #6 is called "Christmas Bouquet" but it requires me to embroider some pine boughs on the background…"
"Riana-Thanks for that! I don't have the talent or patience for needle turn applique, but I love the results. I know we are the most harsh critics of our work, but the bells are pretty messy. I am loving the progress on your travel quilt too.…"
"Finished making the pieces and placing them on the background for block #5 of the Baltimore Christmas quilt. I need to fix a couple of thing with the bells but I am hoping I can do that with my needle as I sew it down. Those pieces were just…"
