Welcome to Saturday Quilting Bring & Share 🙂 Bring along your project(s) and share in some of the inspiration and conversations to be found through the online Worldwide Quilting Community. Do leave your thoughts in the comments box at the very bottom of this page. Don’t forget to fill in the ‘subscribe’ box too – you’ll receive an email notification each time I publish a blog post, but no spam, I promise 🙂
I’ve spent the past week pushing along two projects. The more traditional looking Log Cabin project has been quilted and the my latest version of the Dashing Stars made alongside the Beginners classes at Purple Stitches has also been quilted.
I’ve made the binding strips for each of the quilts but will defer attaching these until next Saturday when I can use them as my demos for the final sessions of the two Beginners Courses.
After all that quilting I fancy spending a bit of time doing some straightforward piecing. Maybe I’ll get out the orange squares I cut for the Rainbow Scrap Challenge and have a bit of chain piecing therapy!
Now for those inspirational links into the Worldwide Quilting Community:
This tutorial for the Hunter’s Star block has me wanting to dive into my stash and locate a pack of 10″ squares. Jennifer’s tutorial, published in 2014 on her blog ‘Hopeful Homemaker’, was used by Leanne who is participating in a quilting bee.
Click here for Christa Watson’s handy basting tutorials. She includes two spray basting methods and her method for pin basting.
Jo Avery at ‘myBearpaw’ has a whole flock of British bird applique patterns to share. The birds are wonderfully realistic. Some of her designs feature in the the current issue of Today’s Quilter magazine.
I am very pleased that Rachel Hauser has announced ‘The Quilter’s Color Quest‘ over on her blog. The QAL/Learn A-Long is designed to accompany her excellent book ‘The Quilter’s Field Guide to Color’. The Quest begins in April and will take us through all the theory in the book and give guidance and encouragement re. the color theory exercises featured in each chapter. I have so much to learn about color and choosing fabrics for projects…
