Week 11 Moda Blockheads Lisa's Star by Lisa Bongean

This week is a short one for me as I'm writing this post early, while frantically preparing it to go to Market!  I made Lisa's block quickly and love it.  And I made the Mini, also cute as can be. ;-)

If you have followed along on Instagram or Facebook, more on Instagram, will will have seen tiny previews of Market sewing and quilts as well as photos of the quilts from Rachel Remembered.  Lots of posting going on.  Wish the blogging was as easy from the iPhone as IG and Facebook are!  I'll try the NEW phone at Market.  
Yes, had to take time and get a new phone.  The old one died, again and I could not revive.  The sweet young man at the store, did revive, but it was time to replace!  No time yet to play with it, but that is ok.  I'm so attached to the phone and do all my business from it.  It is devastating when there is a problem.  I don't like being so dependent on technology but it is a way of life for all of us.

Here is my version of Lisa's pretty block....


a quick tip....I used 3/4" finished half square triangles to make the tiny units. I also oversized the cream squares by 1/8" before cutting in half and was more pleased after sewing to the pieced unit. I then had a tiny bit of trim room if my stitching went a little wonky, and it does happen! 


to find the pattern on Lisa's blog.  Be sure to go to my friends' blogs to see their take on this week block.  Links below.

 Look how different light has changed the cream background to tan! LOL!  The changes in lighting is something to think about when you order online!

I think the block went together easily and is beautiful! Thank YOU Lisa for a lovely block!

Mini Penny 3" block
After making HSTs for the 6" block, I had a few left over.  I needed to make one more, but cannot remember if I did because I was short for what I decided to do, of it one was wonky after pressing,
or it went into never-never land on the floor.
Use the cutting instructions Lisa has given for the center of the star, but reverse the colors and the orientation of the 'pinwheel'.





Hope you all had a lovely Mother's Day, either with your Mom, or as a MOM.
I had a lovely day with my kids, Rachel and Matthew,  and precious Madison who will be getting a baby brother very soon.  (not until after I'm home from Market!!! I hope!)
Steve, his mom and son-in-law Craig where also with us.

Question of the Week to the designers...Of the quilts you've created, what is your 
favorite quilt pattern ever?   
This is a hard question to answer easily.  I have a lot of favorites. Favorite mini? Favorite Crib size? Favorite Lap quilt? Favorite large throw, not exactly bed size? 
I could just say, 'the one I just finished' and it would be close to the truth! LOL.
 If I have to name just one, it would be Hope's Journey that is made with wild goose chase blocks, because Wild Goose Chase is one of my favorite blocks.
Favorite quilt to make that I designed, is hands down Gone to Texas. LOVE everything about it, the scrappy fabrics, the non-symmetrical setting and the mix of block sizes.
Favorite mini is a tiny broken dishes quilt.
Favorite crib quilt, the Indigo and white quilt I showed in the last post, I called So Many Dishes.
Favorite Lap quilt is an old pattern called Captain Carpenter's Soldier Quilt, a 4 patch strippy.
Favorite 'sort of' bed size quilt might be a new one for quilt market. 
I've got more favorites, such as favorite seasonal quilts.
Very rarely have I made a quilt I don't like.
How about you? do you have a favorite?  Just one, or several?

I'll leave you with Morning Walk mini and Mom's Blue Danube.  Thinking of you Mom, everyday, not just not on Mother's Day.

 Until next time, happy sewing!

And my favorite color is.....

What a great time I have had reading your thought process to figure out my likes and dislikes!  Thank you, thank you ALL for taking the time to visit my blog and comment.
It seems to me that blogging is a give and take...and so often, and until BlockHeads, not that often lol, I'm writing but I don't know if I'm connecting...know what I mean? I write in hopes of sharing and teaching, and in turn I hope you are receiving and learning. And now I'm writing every week!
BlockHeads has taught me a lot!  And I have received the sweetest notes form so many of you thanking me for this or that.  You have no idea what it means to me.

So who won?...well,, I gave Molly (one of my cats) the opportunity to select the winner from a basket full of names that all guessed the same color.  She was asleep and failed me.  So I asked my husband to draw a name from the basket. but before I reveal the winner of my favorite color I have to tell you that NO ONE guessed both my favorite and least favorite correctly in one vote.  Nor did anyone guess the particular type of this color that I have LOVED since I bought my first antique quilt top in 1980.  A $10 top started a love affair with this color. But what I'm showing is from a top I purchased in 1982.
 INDIGO is my favorite color. When I was a child my favorite Crayola was Midnight Blue. I wanted to collect indigo and white quilts so bad I could taste it! and They were very pricey even in the 1980's

I also love Prussian Blue and Lancaster Blue, but not as much as Indigo.  Indigo has its own little cupboard and it is a small collection compared to the other blue colors because I USE IT UP!  I try to put indigo in all my quilts, even in fall quilts but not in anything for Halloween and not in Christmas quilts, but love them for Winter and Summer.  For me indigo adds a richness and depth to quilts.  I collect Flow Blue dishes. and Blue Willow. and cobalt blue vases.
So yes, if you guessed BLUE, your name went in the basket.
If you haven't read all the comments in the last post, you must.  One of the best and it made me laugh:  
I think that BLUE is your favorite color because it is the messiest of the shelves...like you get into it more often and keep messing up your neat stacks.
Love it! robin. and it is very true...the blues on that shelf are double deep, so an equal amount is behind what you see. Thank goodness you cannot see the rest of the room...not neat!

Indigo and Nine Patch, from History Repeated

Indigos from Hope's Journey and Rachel Remembered in a blockheads block.

 Bluebonnets, the state flower of Texas It's not indigo but still a beautiful blue.

My dining room, on occasion. (I change with the seasons) The quilt over the pew is one of my most favorite quilts EVER and is in Lizzie's Legacy. So is the little churn dash over the blue cupboard.  Notice the brown transferware on the blue cupboard?  Love blue and brown together!

Now for all those who know I love brown...I do love it and use it in most quilts too, and for the CHOCOLATE guess, I LOVE that you went to a specific brown and you were spot on with chocolate! I like chocolatey shades, from milk chocolate to dark chocolate to bittersweet, hot chocolate, mocha, and chocolate mousse. Now I like chocolate a lot but it is not my favorite...Can't you hear Johnny Depp murmuring 'yum' as he takes a bite of chocolate in the movie Chocolat? and says , 'but it's not my favorite". ?
For me browns are my neutral...they do not compete with any other color. and NO, they are not the color of mud or dirt...they are chocolate.
I have converted many a 'no brown in my quilt' maker in my 25 years in quilts shops by suggesting they introduce chocolate to their palette.

I also love PINK. and Poison Green, but not the puky green, but it not my most disliked color.  I RARELY use that color except in primitives or folk art. Doesn't everyone have a tiny bit of that 'something different' in their stash???  I once worked with a quilter who put puky green in EVERY quilt.  hmmm. I love to wear lime green but rarely sew with it.
I use to detest purple and orange, but appreciate them for their time and place, and yellows, when a little dab will do. But a yellow and white or Orange and cream quilt...yummy like Creamsicles. and cheddar, OH MY!
 I have an intense dislike for a particular red, claret. It is in that $10 top and while it did not bleed in that case, it has in other tops and quilts. So I avoid it in antiques and very, very little has ever been reproduced.  If it is your favorite , I hope I didn't offend.  We all have our favorites an I respect your likes regardless!  And you know, if it is called burgundy, I like it so much better! though both are wines! Why do we name colors?  A name can turn you off, or on, as any emotion might.  I love Red and my Moda reds are the yummiest, if I do say so.

I don't dislike blacks, nor do I dislike mourning blacks.  Again, in the right time and place, love, love .
Only one person guessed my least favorite.  
GRAY
I know it is popular.  I know it is in all the magazines from wall colors to fabric, and if the RIGHT GRAY appeared for a project then I wouldn't say no, I just don't have a single piece in my stash. If given the choice between gray or cream, I'll pick cream shades any day.  But, I wear LOTS of gray.  I have seen and admired quilts with gray so one day I could change my mind, again if the right one came along...mourning blacks do read gray from a distance, hint hint.

I choose rich colors and the colors I love have depth. Even soft shades can be rich. Even a darker pastel can be rich.  One of my favorite classes to teach involves the colors that were popular in the  1800's and our repros today, which I teach with antique quilts, tops and blocks.

I have babbled on enough???  I LOVE talking color!!!!

And the winner is...
My husband drew Marie Chat's name, so Marie please email me (addy in profile) or make a comment with your email so I can send you a Rachel Remembered Charm Pack. If I don't hear from you by Sunday,  I have a runner up selected.
And because Puppy Paws picked gray as my least favorite, correctly, I'll send you a charm pack too. Please email me or make a comment including your addy. 
I'd like to get these mailed before market, fingers crossed.
Again, thank you thank you to all who participated, and read my posts...your visit and your comments are always welcome.

Until Wednesday! Oh My, I'll schedule the post before I leave for Market. Wish me luck.
Bindings are calling!!!

Week 10, Block 10 by Jan Patek Basket and Flower

Hello fellow BlockHeads! Ready for block 10, it's a sweet applique designed by Jan Patek.


Before we get to Jan's block, or my mini block, let's talk color! Yes, that is the question of the week... Do I have a favorite color? 
If you looked in my stash, opened all the doors of every cupboard, would you be able to tell which color is my favorite?
Can one's favorite color not be the one she, or he, has the most?
Interesting, or tricky???
...and what is your favorite?

Ok, this is only one cupboard.  All colors in my palette are seen here, but this cupboard by no means holds all my fabrics.  Lights, creams and shirtings are elsewhere. Blacks are in the cupboard, but cut off in this photo.
Knowing this isn't all of my fabric and none of my MODA fabrics are included here and my madders are in a different cupboard, what color do you think is my favorite?
A favorite per season? A favorite 'go to' fabric that I include in nearly every project? and even better, which color is my least favorite? It may or may not be in the photo.
Leave me a comment with your guesses, and if you are correct, I'll put your name in a drawing for a Rachel Remembered charm pack!
You have until 12 noon on Thursday Central daylight time to leave a comment. I'll announce the winner Thursday evening. 

Basket and Flower, this week's block by Jan Patek, is as sweet as can be.  I stitched this gem by hand using the needle turn method.  Jan has a wonderful applique tutorial on You Tube!  Nice break from the non stop machine sewing I've been doing for a secret project and for Quilt Market, which by the way is a week away!  Ok, I'm easily sidetracked!
You will want to visit all the blogs (links below) and see what our BlockHeads designers have made, and I just bet, Lisa has an alternate, for those of you who don't applique.  


For Jan's pattern CLICK HERE for her blog, instructions, pattern and tips.
All fabrics in my block are from Rachel Remembered, except the greens, 
which are from Hope's Journey. 

Better lighting . I have not trimmed to 6 1/2" yet.
Thank Jan, I loved stitching your block!

and now my Mini Penny 3" block for the week...

Mary Ann's Basket, which I designed for my book, Classic and Heirloom Quilts.
I've made these cute, cute baskets in fabrics from all my lines, except Eliza's Indigo, which was introduced just prior to writing this book.
They are fun, and fast.  In the book we use the connector method, which I also used for this post. I did however 'up' the squares and rectangles to make the geese units, by 1/8", then trimmed finished units  using a 3/4" x 1 1/2" Bloc_Loc flying geese ruler. Tiny geese can be a tad frustrating!
(You may make the geese units with any method you like.)

Super tiny, but awesome tool.


Finished geese are 3/4" x 1 1/2".  Trim units to 1 1/4" x 2".
You will also need background pieces: a 1 1/4" square and 2 - 1 1/4" x 2" rectangles and,
 1 - 2 3/8" square, cut diagonally.
From dark print, you will need a 
2'' square and a 1 5/8" square cut in half diagonally.
Assemble as shown above, adding the light triangle last.

.



This sweet basket block pincushion was made by the hostesses of a retreat where I taught Mary Ann's Basket in March...they were part of the goody bag for each attendee. How special is that???


Mary Ann's Baskets in Classic and Heirloom Quilts

 A Bramblewood version, not in the book. The blocks from Hope's Journey are buried,
 somewhere in the sewing room.

For complete instructions and other block sizes, please see Classic and Heirloom Quilts, available at your local quilt shop, Fat Quarter Shop online, or from me.

So much to do and so little time! 
Happy sewing!

Back to prepping for Market and the clock is ticking...

Until next time~

Moda Blockheads Week 9

Ohio Star Variation by Jo Morton is our 9th block for Moda BlockHeads block of the week.  
You will want to go to Jo's blog, link below, for the instructions. 
My block and my Mini Penny blocks are below.

Time has once again flown by since last Wednesday. I blinked and missed the weekend! It's Spring Market prep time and I'm just a little crazy and a whole lotta behind making my quilts.  Normally by this time I'm sewing on bindings, well I do have one to do...but the other tops aren't finished. 
And the clock is ticking!

BlockHead question of the week....this week, let's talk sewing machines.  What is your preferred sewing machine? How many machines do you have?  How often do you clean your machine? And how thoroughly? and the really big question...have you named your machine?

I'll go first.  I sew on a Pfaff.  When I first began sewing, it was on my aunt's 1940's Singer, which I still have. Then when Rachel was little I bought a new Singer, which I wore out, so I bought a Pfaff and wore it out. The photo you see is my 2nd Pfaff.  Love the dual feed.  So sold on that feature, that I guess you could say I am a Pfaff girl.
For retreats, I do have a little Janome platinum that I do love, lightweight and very dependable, but not good for my daily sewing. I'm hard on my things.
I clean my machine each time I change a bobbin, cleaning the bobbin area and removing the faceplate to clean there and especially the feed dogs. I am not good about oiling.  And I don't take it in to be serviced as often as I should.  Reason...never a good time to be without it.  Pretty sorry excuse, I need to do better.
I have the 3 machines I already mentioned plus my grandmother's treadle which needs to be restored.
Now, Have I named my machines???  the answer is NO.  With Betsy as my name, I've heard too many cars and machines, not just sewing machines referred to as 'ole Betsy...so NO, I don't name my machine. But, it's ok if you do.  However, if your machine is named Betsy, please don't tell me. I just hope you named her so with affection. ;-)
The quilt ready to be bound, in this photo is Eliza's Indigo...a couple of years ago at this very time, right before Market.

Here is my version of Jo's pretty block...


CLICK HERE to go to Jo's blog for the pattern. All links to the designers are listed at the end of the blog.  You will want to visit each one's blog for their block and tips. I love seeing what we all make! Thanks Jo for another great block!

All fabrics are from Rachel Remembered which should be in shops now.
The piecing is pretty easy this time.
Here is the back of one hourglass (quarter square triangle units) so you can see how I press.
When I twist open the seam it makes a 4 patch. Can you see where I clipped next to the seam allowance, so I could press to the dark triangle? Only 2 clips.

And here are my 3" blocks, yes, I made 2.  I really like the 3" blocks on point. hmm.

This one is made just like Jo's 6" block. Rachel Remembered fabrics with a touch of 
Lizzie's Legacy pink.

 and then a plain, cute as can be. Ohio Star.  


For either block cut light and dark squares for the quarter square triangles 2 1/2".  Once you have Pieced  the units, trim each to 1 1/2".  Cutting parts larger, and then trimming. after sewing, to correct size, makes a more accurate block. The little squares for the 4 patch corner units are cut at 1" and finish at 1/2". If working with 1" squares scares you, try cutting  the squares at 1 1/4", piece as you normally would and then trim the 4 patch to 1 1/2".  Measure 3/4" from center seam and trim one side at a time.  Try one unit and see how this works for you.  and of course be sure to starch before cutting anything. Center square and plain corner squares are cut 1 1/2"
 Stars will measure 3 1/2" for 3" finished blocks

The last thing on my list for you today is another question...are you keeping all your BlockHeads fabric contained?  I'm keeping every little scrap the scraps are piling up!  My attempt to keep the bigger pieces nice and neat proved a joke, total mess and growing.  So, just before writing this, I straightened my mess.


I could have put it all in a plastic tub, but this project will be ongoing, and I need it all where I can see it. So I emptied a carrier and separated the larger pieces from the scraps. Two containers and each big container has a smaller box for smaller parts, of course!  I'm pleased.  But don't ask next week after making our next block, if the plan is working.  I wish the rest of my room could be so easily handled.

Happy sewing!

Until next time~
Betsy

Moda BlockHeads Block 8 Basket of Triangles

Hello everyone! Another week, another block! and this week is MY week.  
I'm so happy to bring you... 

Basket of Triangles

Pattern link is below.

For this block, I chose a background from Lizzie's Legacy, a red print from Hope's Journey and the brown and gold prints are from Rachel Remembered which is shipping to shops this week! Yay!!!

 Be sure to starch your fabrics before cutting...it makes all the difference with these small blocks.

I could have used 1" triangle paper, but cut 2" squares for HSTs instead. I then trimmed each triangle unit to 1 1/2".  I like that method for small amounts of triangles most of the time. You will notice in the pattern, cutting instructions are given for 1 7/8" squares, so I've only added 1/8".  Note the brown triangles at the top of the basket?  Those must be cut from 1 7/8" squares.
I always layout my pieces, sew in groups and replace in the layout before proceeding. Makes it easier to catch a mistake. 

I love baskets!  Take your time, cutting and sewing accurately. Pressing of the triangles can be tricky as you sew units together for the brown and gold triangles.  You might try pressing seams open, or pressing to the side with the least resistance. I press to the side.  That's me, my preference.  Do what works for you. I like my seams to stagger. I pin next to the side of the seam and I do stitch over my pins.  Bad girl, but I do.  I showed you last week how I press seams...I un-sew the stitching, twisting (flipping) the connecting seam so the seams go in the opposite direction. This gives me a very flat intersection. Then after I join rows, I may need to clip 1/4" away from the seam to continue 
staggered seams and flat intersections.

Here's the back of my basket.  Note the intersections, the flipping of seams makes cute 4 patches. 


What a coincidence...the question of the week concerns pins!  Didn't I just confess that I sew over pins? It's not a great habit, and I do hit some occasionally. 
 I do a lot of finger pinning as well as straight pinning. 
When I pin long sashes or borders, I like the long Clover pins, but for pinning block parts, I prefer  2507 Clover Patchwork pins, super thin and sharp. For the traveling sewing kit, I like the Little House pins in the cute little tin. And, talk about sharp!!! No wonder they are contained in that tin!


I pinned a lot on these blocks! And please press carefully.  Tiny 3" blocks are so easily distorted. 

Last week Lynne gave us a Penny Basket, and you saw the Mini Penny Basket that I made. If you missed, go to last week's blog. But, since I know not all of you like applique, I posted, while at Jury Duty, to Facebook and Instagram, the little basket block I made to show this week.  Yes, I made the block with the intention of showing it for my mini this week, but scheduled the blog post without it.  
I blame nerves over Jury Duty. 

 Monday night I decided to try making Basket of Triangles in  a 3" block and ....
oh my, it is so cute...they both are! The other little basket is actually known as Cake Stand.

The block on the right is what I made last week, for this week.  The HST units are 3/4" finished.
  I made the one on the left, this week, for today, and it has 1/2" finished HSTs.


I strongly recommend 1/2" triangle paper or cutting squares 1 1/2" for HSTs and trimming to 1" after stitching and pressing. I used Lisa's 1/2" papers for the brown and green triangles and then cut squares for the rest. Rectangles are cut 1" x 2 1/2", squares 1" and for large cream triangle, cut a 
2 7/8" square in half diagonally.
 If you like making these 3" cuties, please sign up to receive my blog post delivered to your email.

 I'm loving these 3" blocks.

to download the pattern for Basket of Triangles,



Happy Sewing!

Tuesday, I made Lisa's bonus block...I actually found leftover geese units just the right size for the star points and whipped up some triangles using 1" triangle papers. Fabrics are Eliza's Indigo and Rachel Remembered.
 Another awesome alternate block! Thanks Lisa!!!

Hope you are all enjoying making our blocks!  The creativity of those shown on social media is wonderful to see.  This is just month 8!  40 blocks to go.
Be sure to visit my friends' blogs to see their blocks. Their links are below.

Last thing on today's list... the long awaited Rachel Remembered is shipping to your local quilt shop this week. To those who missed the starter bundles, here's your chance to pick up some of my pretty fabric...I'm a little biased, I love this line!  This photo was from last October when it was shown at Quilt Market. My big Ohio star quilt I call Rachel's Garden is hanging now, in Hancock's of Paducah for Quilt Week...anyone going to Paducah?  I've never been.

and this was posted by Moda....

Thanks for visiting!

Until next time ~
Betsy
