Caption Contest Winners

A few weeks ago, I asked QM’s friends on Facebook to write a caption for this photograph.

dresseduptosew Caption Contest WinnersOne thousand and seventy people commented, so it took me a while to get through them all. Here are some of our favorites, along with the grand prize winner, who gets a bundle of quilty goodness from our extensive stash.

Best puns

Joan Gifford: Give a quilter an inch and she thinks she’s a ruler!

Ginny Davis: Russian to get it done.

Alice Leishman: When I asked my friend to bring an extra ruler to sewing class, I didn’t realize she would take me so LITERALLY!

Marjorie Bandy:
QUEEN, Queen upon her machine…
HOW DOES your sewing GO?
With stitches so fine….
NONE better than mine…
SEW..SEW…SEW..!!

Melanie Waddell Varela:
The Royal robes were in disrepair,
the Queen lamented “What shall I wear?”
Her Knights brought forth an exquisite machine,
And her royal throne of purple sateen.
She put silken threads through bobbin and needle,
Then placed slippered feet upon the treadle.
But not a gown for the Courtiers Ball,
She sewed a mini skirt for the local Pub Crawl!

Kathy M. Boice: Queen of a Castle, Quilter at heart, so many projects, where do I start?”

Funniest

Cathy O’Neal Morris:
I’m singering in the reign
Just singering in the reign
What a glorious feelin’
I’m happy again!!

Pam Smith Barman: And this is great Aunt Edna…who took her role as costumer for the local theater a bit too seriously.

Debbie Caffrey has a new class on Craftsy.com. QM readers get half off the regular price.

Debbie came on Quiltmaker’s Block Party @ Sea earlier this summer, and was excited to tell us about her new class with Craftsy called Cut To It: Strategies for Smarter Quilting. I sat in on one of Debbie’s lectures and even though I’ve been quilting for 30 years, I learned a lot.

There’s so much about cutting, and cutting efficiently, that none of us ever think about. I signed up for Cut To It immediately! I’m very anxious to watch all of the lessons.

Debbie has graciously provided a link whereby QM readers can get the class for half off the regular price. We appreciate her generosity in making this possible.

This is Points Out. It’s made with a 2.5″ strip, a 10″ square, and 10 2.5″ squares (common precut sizes). No additional cutting required! Peg repeated this block to create a Christmas tree quilt. I think it would make a great scrap quilt. Find complete instructions in Quiltmaker’s Sept/Oct issue.

Today’s giveaway is for this Home Sweet Home block made by Lynette Anderson of Lynette Anderson Designs. Be sure to visit Lynette’s blog when you’re finished here.

Lynette is the only designer who gave her block a nighttime look, and we just love it! She added her signature style of applique with embroidered details.

Scrap Quilt Ideas: Emily’s Stars at Sea

The Quiltmaker Scrap Squad is a select group of six QM readers who take one pattern from each issue and make scrappy versions of it to inspire others. You can see slideshows of past Scrap Squad projects—great scrap quilt ideas!

QM scrap squadB3 Scrap Quilt Ideas: Emilys Stars at SeaToday we’re sharing Emily Bailey’s version of Magic Stars from the Sept/Oct issue of Quiltmaker.

cover350opt Scrap Quilt Ideas: Emilys Stars at Sea

Below is the original quilt, designed by Janice Averill and made in fabrics by Sweetwater for Moda Fabrics. If you don’t have this issue, you can get a digital pattern for Magic Stars instantly.

magicstars450opt Scrap Quilt Ideas: Emilys Stars at Sea

We named it Magic Stars because the stars appear with a little hocus pocus—you don’t make stars at all.

magicstarsblock Scrap Quilt Ideas: Emilys Stars at SeaThis is the block. When several are set side by side, you get stars, just like magic.

 

emilycropped copy Scrap Quilt Ideas: Emilys Stars at Sea

Emily Bailey

Emily Bailey is from Centerville, Utah, and she blogs regularly at Em’s Scrapbag. You’ll hear from Emily in her own words below.

*     *     *     *     *

Even though I have yet to purchase fabric for my Scrap Squad quilts, I have not made a dent in my scraps. How is that possible? As I grabbed my scrap bins for this new Magic Stars project, I started with a varied color palette. After making one block I bagged it.

DSCN0564 300x225 Scrap Quilt Ideas: Emilys Stars at Sea

Instead I went for a combination of blues and greens with a splash of yellow.

DSCN0565 300x225 Scrap Quilt Ideas: Emilys Stars at Sea

As I made this block I noticed another star pattern.

DSCN0567 300x225 Scrap Quilt Ideas: Emilys Stars at Sea

I found that as I turned the blocks, the circles turned into cool waves.

DSCN0569 300x225 Scrap Quilt Ideas: Emilys Stars at Sea

Because I didn’t want unfinished stars I added partial blocks to complete the maverick stars.

DSCN0570 300x225 Scrap Quilt Ideas: Emilys Stars at Sea

I wanted to continue the wave past the maverick stars but I ran into the same problem of unfinished stars.

DSCN0581 300x225 Scrap Quilt Ideas: Emilys Stars at Sea

So I traded one of the star points with the same fabric as the star center.

DSCN05821 300x221 Scrap Quilt Ideas: Emilys Stars at Sea

I sandwiched up my quilt and began quilting by following the waves through the quilt.

DSCN0601 300x225 Scrap Quilt Ideas: Emilys Stars at Sea

Then I echoed the effect as I went into the star.

DSCN0600 300x225 Scrap Quilt Ideas: Emilys Stars at Sea

I bound it with the gray that I had used as the maverick star background.

DSCN0637 300x225 Scrap Quilt Ideas: Emilys Stars at Sea

Emily’s completed Stars at Sea scrap quilt

I’m calling it Stars at Sea.

*     *     *     *     *

Editor’s note:

This was a great job by Emily. I wanted you to see the two blocks side by side so you could fully appreciate the way that value played a role in this design. It’s amazing what a little playing around will do.

I hope you’ll let the Scrap Squad quilts inspire you to make your own version of Magic Stars. Thanks for joining us today on Quilty Pleasures.

Back to School: Hip-Hopscotch Quilt

Quiltmaker is having a Back to School Party and you’re invited! Come sew with us!

 BTS14 logo 400opt 287x300 Back to School: Hip Hopscotch Quilt

Each day from Sept. 8 to 12, please join us here on Quilty Pleasures for a free quilt pattern in bite-size morsels plus tips to make it successfully and more fun and surprises.

The idea of the Back to School Party is to celebrate fall with a fun, easy new project. You’ll find camaraderie, guidance and inspiration each as we work on the quilt together. (Of course you can tuck it away to make later if you can’t sew while the party is happening.) The quilt is called Hip-Hopscotch; it was designed by Janice Averill.

We knew you’d need some time to gather sewing supplies so today we’re sharing a diagram and photos of Hip-Hopscotch along with the yardage requirements. The grayscale quilt diagram below is keyed to the fabrics in the yardage further down.

BTS14 quiltopt Back to School: Hip Hopscotch Quilt

Hip-Hopscotch is a 48″ x 60″ throw.
Each block finishes at 6″.

You can have some fun with fabric placement in this design. As soon as we have photographed the eight quilts our Back to School team has made, we’ll post photos for further inspiration. You’ll love all the possibilities.

BTS14 quilt linedrawing500opt Back to School: Hip Hopscotch Quilt

In the meantime, here’s a line drawing of the design. A line drawing has only the patch outlines. You can often see new shapes you didn’t see when the values were in place. Playing with line drawings is so much fun! Get a printer-friendly line drawing to play with.

We’ve put together a materials list that is keyed to the gray-scale quilt diagram above and below. Remember that your values do not have to match those in the diagram. For example, you can make the fabric that is shown as black be lighter in value if you wish.

BTS14 materialsopt Back to School: Hip Hopscotch Quilt

I would encourage you to shop your stash to make this quilt. What’s better than a quilt for which you don’t need to buy any more fabric? The line drawing will come in handy as you look at the fabrics you have on hand and decide on a color/fabric recipe for your own version.

To help you plan your own quilt, if you wish, download and print the fabric chart below. Customize it by plugging in your own fabric choices.

QM Back to School chartnewopt Back to School: Hip Hopscotch Quilt

We’ll give you the first step of Hip-Hopscotch construction on Monday, Sept. 8. During the party you’ll also get to meet our team of reader-sewers, and we’ll have daily doses of learning. Plan to take photos of your quilt along the way so that we can share them with everyone and multiply the fun. I’ll see you at the party!

One of the best things I saw at quilt market in May was Carrie’s Little Bites patterns. They’re designed for using 2.5″ squares, which means you can use 2.5″ precut squares, or you can cut 2.5″ precut strips into squares. Very efficient!
