Butterfly Pincushion

Butterfly Pincushion

Pincushions are so fun!  Don’t you think?  They take minimal fabric and supplies and go together quickly and make great gifts. I used my small butterfly die from the GO! Qube Specialty Set-Serendipity by Edyta Sitar. I applied Ultra Lite Heat and Bond to my fabric BEFORE I cut out the butterfly.  It makes a crisp cut.  I used a simple …

Quilters Planner Weekly Blocks January 24

Weekly Block – February 24

Triple Rail Fence This was a surprisingly quick block to sew.  There are a lot of seams, so I pressed all of the seams open. I think I like the aqua, beige and navy color combination the best.  🙂

Pincushions

Pin Pals!

Weekly Block – February 10

9 Patch Block This week’s block is a simple 9 patch. I chose to use the background fabric for the contrast squares. I’m loving these little 6 inch blocks. Again, I’m doing 2 of each. I still don’t know what I’ll do with them. Stay tuned…

Aurifil Thread

Aurifil Thread Club

I love thread. Having said that, my thread collection is very minimal.  After I bought my new Bernina, I threw away my entire Connecting Threads thread collection.  It wasn’t a high enough quality and left a lot of lent in my machine.  I made a point of only using quality, low lent threads going forward. Aurifil thread, I found, is …

Mini Swoon by Thimble Blossoms

Mini Swoon by Thimble Blossoms

To match my Swoon 16 Bed Quilt, I made a very small replica wallhanging, The Mini Swoon by Thimble Blossoms. The mini quilt measures 19″ x 19″ and uses the smallest scraps.  The Swoon block is a bit time consuming and this mini version is no exception. The small pieces can be a bit tedious but is well worth the …
