Back to School Blog Hop with Island Batik

Back to School Blog Hop Graphic

It’s already been back to school here in NC for quite a while and my quilt for this blog hop really has nothing to do with schools but oh well!

-that’s what I get for starting it WAY early before I knew the theme! sorry Winking smile

Anyways, my BIG bundle from the Spring Island Batik box is called Captain’s anchor and it’s a cool nautical themed bundle.

The first thing I made with the bundle was back in April when we all made a kennel quilt for Island Batik’s sales people and then later they will be donated!

DSCF8135

Here’s my bundle and some yardage, ready to be cut into!

these were half yard cuts but I cut them into FQs

DSCF8652

I played around in EQ and had a general idea of what I wanted, something like this using one of my QUBE sets from Accuquilt

anchors away 6in qube

I decided to use the 9” QUBE as I recently got it and haven’t used it much

DSCF8654

Here I cut a bunch of large triangles, small triangles, rectangles and squares (since there was a red lobster print in the bundle I added some coordinating red too- and white)

DSCF8655

I also had a matching yardage of this really dark blue where I cut out signature block pieces and small squares

DSCF8656

then I started pairing up the fabrics

DSCF8657

and added the rest of the shapes and the dark blue

DSCF8658

and then began piecing everything together, first the large triangles!

(for some reason I had totally miscounted and cut out double the amounts of large triangles!!)

DSCF8659

Here are some of the blocks all together, I made 10 of each

DSCF8672DSCF8674

Then I laid them out on my design wall

DSCF8676

and sewed the top together and added borders.

Finished size is 54 x 65”

IMG_20170721_163626697

and here it is all quilting and bound

DSCF8861

I did a pointy swirl all over

DSCF8862

I did a scrappy back, also so I could add my extra HSTs that I made too many of!

DSCF8863

Anja approves

DSCF8864

Now with the OOPS large triangles, I decided to sew them together into a table runner. I omitted the red blocks and now that I look back at the fabric collection it doesn’t have the red prints, so maybe I bundled them together wrong after washing my fabrics? another OOPS!

DSCF8703

I quilted it in a swirly wave pattern in rows

DSCF8789

BTW I made another OOPS, I cut out binding strips for this one TWICE!! ha ha, so now I have binding for another runner Winking smile

DSCF8790

I still had more scraps leftover!

I wanted to try this boat block by accuquilt, but their pattern uses mix and match dies and not the companion dies (or mostly triangles and squares) I modified my block and used rectangles and chisels too! and then added a larger rectangle on the sides to make two mug rugs!

These mug rugs I used a method of turning inside out and then quilting them, so there’s no binding on them

DSCF8742

So even though I goofed up quite a few times with this bundle I made some neat projects!

(and I gave the other FQ bundle to a friend at church, who’s former Navy and him and his wife are both quilters! and it was close to his birthday and he just had a close friend pass away, so he needed something to cheer him up!! he loved it btw but wasn’t sure if he was going to share with his wife, ha ha)


Since I pretty much used every single scrap I instead have this 5” charm pack to giveaway (US only)

Another round of the pincushion swap?

owl pincushion
Who wants to join/ rejoin another round of the pincushion swap?
I would go from October- December!
(so plan ahead as that’s a really busy time of the year)
All you need to do is make one pincushion per month and send to the person assigned and you’ll also receive a pincushion in return each month!
It’s fun and it’s like Christmas when you get a squishy package in the mail each month Smile
There’s pictures of this years pincushions here
You never know what you’ll get, it could be small, it could be big, it’s always a surprise and lots of fun!
As you may have seen on my blog post, I have almost 100 pincushions!
DSCF8951
DSCF8955 
Not all are from the swap, some I’ve made and kept, some were given to me outside the swap, but most are from the swap!
Comment/email me if you’d like to join…
Open to internationals too!!

1yr ago

It’s been a year since I got the worse phone call a parent ever wants.

I’ve blogged a bit of an update too on Bjorn here

and that was 2 months ago

where his braces came off and he looked like this

DSCF8665

Because his teeth are still not great, we’ve been in contact with a prosthodontist

and Bjorn is getting Veneers!!

after the 2nd visit at UNC Dental school, Dr Clark put these on Bjorn to try them out and see what it would look like.

It’s hard to see, but he’ll have longer front teeth and a slight overbite!!

this was just a plastic set, then in a little over a week, Bjorn will get a “trial” smile that’s also plastic that will be glued onto his front teeth, but all 4 will be connected (so can’t floss between the front teeth) he’ll wear that for 2 weeks, so his brain and lips etc will get used to it.

THEN he’ll get permanent porcelain veneers!

they are not shaving down his real teeth at all, just maybe buffering them a little to glue them on and that’s it!

IMG_20170914_091637415

He’ll wear that until he’s an adult and he’ll still eventually need implants (6 of them) but now it’s not in such a rush. and these veneers are thick! so it will take some getting used to, but if he had invisalign braces for a year, then metal braces for a year too, this shouldn’t be a problem.

And I bet he’ll be more confident too!!

and guess what!? as I blogged about two months ago, he still wants to become a dentist/ orthodontist, the prosthodontist said he should come shadow her and she’ll have connections to help him get into dental school! so we’ll see, if he still wants to do it when he finishes college (he’s in early college now that combines highschool and college) so he’ll have an associates in 2-3yrs, then 2 more years to get a bachelor’s…. just gotta keep the grades up Smile

anyways, we’re super excited about his “new” teeth.

(he still has to finish a 3rd root canal and a possible 4th eventually too)

So, If he becomes a dentist, then that’s the hidden Blessing in this whole ordeal the last year!!

QUBE sampler QAL block 36

sampler6b

Block 36!

sampler36

This block looks odd, but it’s an illusion!, not hard at all.

And again we’ll be using the chisel die from the companion set!

You’ll be using dies #5,8 and #9 and 3 fabrics plus white


With die #5 cut out 4 white,

2 of fabric A

4 of fabric B and

8 of fabric C

With die #8 cut out 2 of fabric C

with die #9 cut out 2 of fabric A both RIGHT side up!

DSCF8671

sew HST blocks together

2 of white and fabric C

2 of white and fabric A

4 of fabric B and C

and then sew remaining fabric C triangles to angled edge of #9 chiselsDSCF8705

then sew #8 rectangles to long sides of chisel blocks

also sew white/C HSTs together with B/C HSTs

and B/C HSTs together with white/A HSTs

(confused?? just look at the picture of the block and rotate HSTs around so it looks like the picture)

DSCF8706

Now sew into broken dished blocks (at least I think that’s the name of them) making sure none of the same fabrics touch and that fabric A is at the bottom left and them opposite corners- top left and bottom right are the same, the top right is the odd one out)

DSCF8707

Now sew these to the chisel blocks and have the bottom left triangle (fabric A) touch the chisel fabric as it’s the same!

DSCF8713

Now flip the bottom section and sew block together

DSCF8714

quite a funky block, right?

Here’s block #35 from the participants

Renie’s block in batiks

35 renie2

and Michelle caught up on blocks 33-35

a kennel quilt, patterns, EPP and Christmas stuff

All this hurricane devastation has made me think about doing SOMETHING! and a fellow IB ambassador helps with Kennel quilts, so I figured I’d start on some more and see how far I get and where I need to send them!

I started this after Harvey hit Houston (a fellow IB ambassador finally made it home to there and has pretty much gutted her house!!)

I think kennel quilts are fun to make and they are only 12”x18” so small and easy to mail, so I might do more and just store them and wait for a pile of them and a need and then send them off, we’ll see.

Anyways, I had this Island Batik charm pack I wanted to use

DSCF8938

I got out my QST die from the 8” QUBE set and cut out a bunch (one charm = one block, sort of) so I needed 12 charms

DSCF8939

Then I started sewing together QST blocks

DSCF8940

DSCF8941

and this is what it will look like Smile

DSCF8963

I’ve also been working on round #3 for the millifori quilt

DSCF8946

IMG_20170912_153510040

and after the pincushion parade, I just can’t have JUST 98 pincushions, so I started #99, a black batik one (from the same pack as the kennel quilt)

DSCF8957

Last week I got a package of fabrics from connecting threads

IMG_20170907_095930545

Because….. I had these 12 days of Christmas embroideries! I did these years ago and did several mistakes on them, some blocks I used the wrong stabilizer (actually I think all of them) and I had run out of black thread so I used grey instead! anyways, these blocks have been staring at me and just wanting me to do SOMETHING with them!!

So when I saw the CT Christmas fabrics on sale I got some for this quilt!

IMG_20170907_094315150

I trimmed them all down to the same sized square- that was my “problem” too, most were around 5”, but #9 was longer and #7 was just too uneven but bigger and the fabrics were not flat…. I found that trimming to 7” worked! then I figured I’d use a QUBE set and make alternate blocks with the Christmas fabrics, so that meant to add a border on the embroidered blocks, so I decided on 9” finished blocks and that meant I added 1 3/4” black borders to these blocks!

DSCF8962

and here I cut out pieces for the alternate blocks (wait and see)

DSCF8961

I also got another delivery of goodies recently!

PATTERNS!!

I finally got around to getting my own patterns printed professionally and this was about 30 patterns X 5 or 10 of each, about 20lbs of paper!!

from bestvaluecopy.com

IMG_20170831_130458292

I got 6x9” ziplocs from amazon and started sorting and bagging!
