Saturday Quilting Bring & Share (16)

Welcome to Saturday Quilting Bring & Share. I took a break from stitching last weekend – you can read more about our seaside holiday here.

I wonder what project you will be bringing along to this virtual sewing day? Let us know and do share any of the interesting quilty topics you’ve come across on the internet or via your patchwork and quilting activities this week – share in the comments section or use the linky button at the bottom of the post.
I’m continuing to work on the Chocolatier BOM quilt. I need to piece the last two border sections – I’ve finished six of the rectangular strips so far.

I also need to make an extra block to complete the on-point layout I’ve designed. The green scraps are quite small but hopefully I’ll come up with a suitable block ๐Ÿ™‚

He! He! I have an excuse to show the I-Spy quilt again. Myra was kind enough to feature it in her Finished or Not Friday blog linky ๐Ÿ™‚
Ever joined in a quilt along? Sandra is just getting a new one underway. Here is the link to the Plus Playtime QAL Fabric Requirements and Tips post ๐Ÿ™‚
Do you understand the information printed on the little bits of paper found on the bottom of a spool of thread? I was reading Alyce’s email newsletter (Blossom Heart Quilts) and followed her link to this very helpful post about how threads are weighted on the Aurifil website.
When I reach the stage of switching from piecing to quilting my projects are often in danger of becoming UFOs. Just what sort quilting pattern should I stitch? Cheryl has given her thoughts on this dilemma: helping us to consider four factors as we contemplate the quilting stage of our projects.
Fed up of creases forming in folded quilts? Nancy at Joy for Grace first alerted me to this solution: fold quilts on the bias. I found a neat demonstration in aย 2 minute video showing how to fold quilts on the bias.
Suzy puts both sides of the pre-wash fabrics/don’t pre-wash fabrics debate. This one is going to run and run….
Leanne has a beautiful series of photos showing how she quilted a third version ofย  her cushion design, Flower Box.
I hope these links are of interest and help you expand your knowledge of patchwork and quilting. There is always something new to learn and so many generous quilters willing to pass on their tips and thoughts. Dive into the conversations and enjoy ๐Ÿ™‚
Happy Stitching
Allison
