Cut, Sew, Press, Quilt!

Posted Sunday, June 28th, 2015 in My Projects, Quilting tools | Read More

I have been so busy with the family that I have not posted some of the projects that I made this spring. We are loving the fact that we live so close to our family now. It is amazing to watch the babies grow and learn. (Although I doubt Eli would like to be called a baby. He is three years old!)

My daughter gave me a bundle of batik fat quarters, “Bobbins and Bits” by Pat Sloan, for Christmas last year. She also gave me a pattern by Lori Holt, Cut. Sew. Press. Quilt.. I had so much fun making these quilts. I was happy that I had “Alphabitties” to help me keep track of the pieces. I won them last year when doing a quilt along with Lori Holt.

I haven’t quilted them yet. I am still trying to decide if I want to quilt them or frame them. They will all be hung near the appropriate area in my new sewing room.


Don’t forget to come back for the next “Zelda: The Quilt-Along” block later this week!

Happy Quilting!

I buy my batting by the roll and cutting it is not a lot of fun. I roll it out on my living room floor and try to line it up with the lines in the parquet floor. It is hard to see the line when you are half way across the width of the batting. So.. I bought a laser level to mark a cutting line. IT WORKS!!!!

To make the cutting easier, I asked for a pair of batting scissors for Christmas last year. Santa came through and here they are.

I still cut the batting on the floor but it takes much less time with my new tools.

The laser level was purchased through Amazon and the scissors were ordered from IHAN (I Have A Notion).
