Inside Out Pineapple Bed Runner

And you guessed it, another quilt!

Another one to mark off my Finish Along to do list! This one I am in love with, but for some reason wasn’t able to photograph it as wonderful as it really is!

RunnerQuilt-Full-ImFeelinCrafty

My stepmother told me she wanted a quilt made with my Inside Out Pineapple quilt pattern. I love the pattern, of course. You’d hope I would since I made it… But it’s so time consuming! So I was contemplating how long did she really want to wait on this project! And luckily before I asked that question, she clarified that she only wanted a bed runner. Oh, yes! I can do that without taking forever!

RunnerQuilt-BedFull-ImFeelinCrafty

A bed runner… It does look pretty, but I’m still curious about why… You’ll notice I don’t make many mini quilts. A couple of reasons… I don’t have wall space to hang them. And If you aren’t hanging them on the wall, what is the point of them? They don’t really serve a purpose. People make awesome mini’s and I love seeing other peoples minis, but for some reason when I quilt, I think it needs to be able to be used…  I don’t know why I think this way… So I’m still kinda miffed at the bed runner concept. But it turned out great!

RunnerQuilt-Details-ImFeelinCrafty

Her other request was for it to coordinate with the cross stitch pillow I made her a couple of Christmas’s ago. So that narrowed down the colors! And you know me and my white backgrounds! I was trying to figure out how to incorporate the white background and still coordinate with the pillow. Then my friend Debbie asked where the white was in the pillow! Ummmm…. there isn’t any. So what was I doing. Then I tried it with the grey background and, OH YES!

RunnerQuilt-GreenBlock-ImFeelinCrafty

The grey is my favorite staple, Sprinkle by Cotton and Steel! Love it!

RunnerQuilt-BlockYellow-ImFeelinCrafty

RunnerQuilt-BlueBlock-ImFeelinCrafty

Besides the grey, I used a combination of yellow, green and teal solids and prints. Prints! Another quilting concept that I don’t use much! Yes, it still kinda reads as a solid, but I did branch out and use prints with my solids!

RunnerQuilt-Folded-ImFeelinCrafty

RunnerQuilt-Label-ImFeelinCrafty

Throwin’ in my label picture!

RunnerQuilt-Home-ImFeelinCrafty

And here it is in it’s new home! It looks quite nice and does coordinate with the pillow. My step mother was very excited and put it on the bed as soon as she got home from visiting us! I’m glad to know it was well received and will be well loved!

RunnerQuilt-Last-ImFeelinCrafty

This was a great project to use the Inside Out Pineapple Pattern for! I got really quick at making it, but I also didn’t get burned out with having to make too many!

 

 

#What Shade Are You with RJR Fabrics

It’s my turn on the RJR What Shade Are You blog hop!! Have you been following along with the #whatshadeareyou series with RJR Fabrics? I started following RJR fabrics when I found the series or blog hop or whatever you want to call it!

What is this # I keep talking about? Each week or so, they feature a quilter with a quilt made from a bundle of RJR Fabric and then have a giveaway of that fabric bundle! The fabric bundle was what originally hooked me, but the quilters are amazing! I’ve found some new quilters to add to my IG feed, for sure. One day they had a call for bloggers interested in participating, so of course I volunteered and they accepted me.

I used the following colors:

Eggnog 228
Canvas 150

Carrot 131
Oriole 314
Bandana 367
tangerine Dream 276
Orange Crush 372

Cove 294
Riviera 274
Luau 376
Turks and Caicos 292
horizon 354

Pistachio 404
Spring 405
Lucky Green 406
Sour Apple 346
Grass is Always Greener 347

2961-001
2960-004
2960-001

Super excited, right?? Yes, I was. Then panic struck! Me being in the lineup with all these other quilters that use tons of different fabric. I typically only use a few different colors in one quilt, but all these others use tons of colors. I remember walking around Quiltcon looking at the quilts with more than just a few colors for inspiration…

Then I decided on a design I had made in one of my office meeting sketches. It was a design I could incorporate a bunch of colors into. The kiddo and I got to work and picked the fabrics, finally… Then they came. And stage fright set in again. And I decided I didn’t want to make the design I was starting to make…

So in came design idea number 2. A Quilt Design A Day design! The ‘spark’ above from Design Seeds inspired my purple design. And that purple design became my #whatshadeareyou quilt! I thought it would be cool, but I still wasn’t sure it would stand up against all the other quilts in the series. Once I started going, it kept growing on me and I liked it more and more! And now I love it! I hope you do too!

I’m calling it Raindrops on Wildflowers! As I was quilting it, I debated, one big spiral or three spirals? The whole family agreed on three circles. The kiddo said it was like raindrops in water!

The quilt block is obviously something I just made up, but then I realize it was full of inset corners! Ergh… But I remembered they aren’t so bad and I pretty much mastered it! Well, for this block at least! I’ll post a tutorial soon.

The front had to be the solids collection, which I love. My go to solid fabric is typically another brand that I won’t mention here… But I might have just been swayed! This fabric is much softer than my usual. And there’s still tons of colors to choose from. No reason this fabric can’t be my new go to!

And the back is actually a really fun polka dot fabric. The front had to be solids, but you could choose anything for the back. Obviously I had different intentions since it was a different quilt design I ordered the fabric for, but I like the polka dots and stripes together!

And stayed tuned… A tutorial and giveaway will be popping up here shortly!

 

Left and Right Quilt Tutorial

Remember my do Good Stitches Left and Right quilt that I wrote about last month?

Honestly, It’s pretty easy…. I’ll show you how we did it. You’ll need 3 colors of fabric for the flying geese, white and a pile of grey scraps. Unfortunately, I don’t have a quantity of how much of each fabric you’ll need. You’ll need to do the math on that based on how large of a quilt your looking for.

image via A Quilters Table

First, we’re making a big batch HST. Have you tried my friend Debbie’s tutorial for big batch HST’s? It’s awesome! You can find it here.

To make your big batch HST’s you’ll need (1) 9×9 square of white for every color 9×9 square. (1) set of 9×9 squares will give you 18 HSTs.

You’ll also need to cut:

(9) 2.5×3.5 white rectangles- (1) for each set of HST (which will make 1 flying geese).
And grey scraps

OctDoGood-Tutorial01-ImFeelinCrafty

Once you’ve got your HST’s, we need to add the grey bits! Then line up the ruler so that you are cutting off the tip of the colored edge of the HST, 1.25″ away from the center.

OctDoGood-Tutorial02-ImFeelinCrafty

Add small scraps of grey to each corner. I suggest chain piecing at this point. I also didn’t trim the grey scraps. I just made sure they were big enough that once they are folded over, they cover the corner.

OctDoGood-Tutorial03-ImFeelinCrafty

Trim each HST block to 2.5 inch squares.

OctDoGood-Tutorial04-ImFeelinCrafty

Next, let’s make some flying geese! Sew together 2 HST’s to make your flying geese blocks. Chain piece again.

OctDoGood-Tutorial05-ImFeelinCrafty

Sew the 2.5×3.5 rectangles on to the left side of each HST block. Make sure they are all pointing in the right direction.

Then do it again and again and again for each of the three colors.

OK, from here on out, I don’t have very good pictures!

OctDoGood-Tutorial06-ImFeelinCrafty

Sew the blocks together along line 1, shown above, first. Do this with all the flying geese blocks.

Next take the double flying geese blocks and sew them together along line 2, shown above. Be sure to backstitch at the top and bottom of each!

And do that until you get length you want of the each of the rows of each color. Add strips of white between and you’re done!

There are a lot of little blocks, but they go pretty fast, especially if you chain piece them!

What do you think? Will you make it? If you do, please let me know! Can’t wait to see it!

QuiltCon 2017 Favorites

OK, you might be bored with QuiltCon pictures by now, but I’m going to post more anyway. Sorry! I’m headed off for a quilting retreat this weekend and I thought to look back at the inspiring quilts from QuiltCon would be a good way to start off the weekend!

Hyperbolic Hexagon Tessellation by Jennifer Kloke

I was about to write, This is one of my favorite…. But they are all my favorites! So I’ll just get that out right now so I don’t start each paragraph with that same sentence! I took a million pictures of my ‘favorites’, but the ones I’m showing today are the ones that I keep coming back to in my head, the ones that really left an impression on me!

Quiltcon-ImFeelinCrafty

As you probably know, this was my first year to go to QC and the first year to have a quilt (or two) in the show! So imagine my surprise as I rounded the corner, looked up and saw my quilt at the end of the line of AMAZING quilts! It felt awesome!

Quiltcon-ImFeelinCrafty2

Quiltcon-ImFeelinCrafty4

Quiltcon-ImFeelinCrafty5Me

And I got closer and closer and super close!

Quiltcon-ImFeelinCrafty3Names

And technically, I didn’t make this quilt all on my own! This was one of the do.Good Stitches quilts that I designed and made with blocks from my group!

Quiltcon-MattMcComber

This is my friend Matt! He’s amazing! He’s the only guy in our guild and did I say amazing? It was great to spend a lot of the day with him wandering around looking at quilts. Maybe a couple of critiques… This is the quilt he designed for our guild’s charity quilt. He also talked me into spending way too much at the BlocLoc booth! And yes, I’m glad he did!

Quiltcon-YouthQuilts

left: The Kiss by Kay-Anna McCalla and right: Lilianna Kehnle

These two were both from the youth category. Love seeing the youth quilts. I didn’t realize that there was a youth category. I came home and told my son about the category and he got excited. Just the other day he told me we needed to get started on his quilt for the show! We’ll see if it happens!

Quiltcon-StephanieSkardal

Serenity by Stephanie Skardal

Ok, this totally grabbed my attention for a couple of reasons. One, it totally reminded me of seersucker, which I love. And two, after doing my striped quilt using striped fabric, I was in awe of the time it took her to make this one of tiny pieced strips!

Quiltcon-SheriCifaldiMorrill

Big Island Blossoms by Sheri Cifaldi-Morrill

oh, yes, please! I’m learning applique now through our guild’s BOM so this is what I am aspiring to!

Quiltcon-MaritzaSoto

Go North by Maritza Soto

When you walked in the show, the Best in Show was right there, but it was surrounded by people so this is technically the first quilt I saw when I walked in and, boom, I was drawn right to it! Love the colors, the solids and the quilting!

Quiltcon-KimSoper_LizHovertine

left: Lincoln by Kim Soper and right: Still With Her by Liz Harvatine

Now the juxtaposition of these two was thoughtful, in my opinion. I had been warned about overhearing people’s conversations around quilts. Let’s just say I loved it and I overheard someone else who didn’t…. I won’t go in the politics of it, but I could go on….

Double Irish Divergence by Debra Jalbert

Another few where the bright color placement is now seared into my brain!

Quiltcon-HiediParks

I Know The Stars Are There Beyond The Clouds 2 by Heidi Parkes

I have no idea how to hand stitch a quilt. None. But this lady does! Amazing! This quilt was huge! And complete with yards of hand stitching. Maybe once I get this applique thing down, maybe I’ll learn to hand quilt. It’s a such a beautiful technique.

Quiltcon-DebraJalbert

Square Count Game by Debra Jalbert

This might just be my most favorite… Love the white. Love the bright. the quilting is awesome. Love the little pops of color. I want this quilt! Very inspiring to me…. And I just realized that two of my favorites are by Debra! I think we could be quilty friends!

Quiltcon-DebbieJeske

Yay or Nay by Debbie Jeske

I also loved seeing my friend’s quilts at the show too. That’s just awesome in it’s own right. But I also love this one by Debbie! I really love the story of the name. Check it out here.

Quiltcon-CherylBrickey

Half Circle Mirror by Cheryl Brickey

I was drawn to this one because it reminds me of the quilt design a day project that I like to do! I don’t think it is inspired by that, but that’s what drew me in. A lot of my designs and QDAD designs can be pretty minimal and I start to doubt the design, but seeing this one hanging there reminded how beautiful minimal can be.

Quiltcon-ChawneKimber

Autumn is Wistful by Chawne Kimber

Loved this for reminding me of home and growing up. But the technique is awesome too. I’ve seen the technique used with knits in clothing, but hadn’t thought about it for quilting. Why not???

Quiltcon-BestInShow

Bling by Kat Jones

And last but least, Best In Show! No words. Awesomeness is all I have to say about this one!

 

A Little Auction Creature- Kid Designed, Momma Made

One thing I love to make are stuffies (what we call stuffed animals) and dolls from kids drawings! And every year I also offer this as a thing at the kiddo’s school auctions. Rarely, do the people who buy them actually cash them in to get made. So I was really excited when the parent who got it last year, actually took me up on the offer! You can see some of the Kid designed, momma made creatures here and here.

This guy doesn’t have a name, but he’s pretty cute!

AuctionCreature-Plans-ImFeelinCrafty

These are the directions I received. He had to be pink, skin color, you know! He comes with a top hat with a purple band and a white crystal on top! So that’s what I did!

AuctionCreature-Side-ImFeelinCrafty

oh, and don’t forget the tail!

AuctionCreature-Scale-ImFeelinCrafty

So my kiddo didn’t design this one, but I felt like it needed a kid for scale! He’s kinda big!

AuctionCreature-Making1-ImFeelinCrafty

And how did I make it?? Well, it took a few trials. I started with the pattern from Ikat Bag that I used for my Pikachu. But then altered a bit here and there. I added the tail and altered the front and head to get the right shape.

AuctionCreature-Making3-ImFeelinCrafty

AuctionCreature-Making2-ImFeelinCrafty

 

I used a good bit of heavy interfacing for the hat and ears. I did have to cut my sample a few times and contact the designer to make sure I was getting the correct orientation of the ears!

AuctionCreature-Making4-ImFeelinCrafty

And I added a little pouch of the bean bag fill to give it enough stability to stand up straight.

AuctionCreature-Hat2-ImFeelinCrafty

AuctionCreature-Jewel-ImFeelinCrafty

I think my favorite part of the design was the ‘white crystal’ in his hat.

AuctionCreature-Drawing-ImFeelinCrafty

You can look back up at the original drawing to see the picture without the stuffie in it and then look back at this picture. What do you think? Do you think he matches what the designer drew?

AuctionCreature-Last-ImFeelinCrafty

The weird thing is… I love making these, but I’ve never made one for my son. I need to look through his drawings and find a good one to make one for him! I wonder what this years auction will bring!

 

 

 

Quilt Design a Day

Have you seen people post pictures of their quilt designs for Quilt Design a Day? I’ve seen people post them and I’ve been very intrigued! There have been a few of Michelle’s Wilke’s QDAD designs, that I’d love to see as a pattern. So I finally joined the QDAD Facebook group and have started doing some on my own!

QDAD-160420-ImFeelinCrafty

IMG_3261

How it works is someone (not sure how that someone is chosen yet…) posts a picture (the second picture above) and you use that as design and color inspiration to use while you spend about 15 to 20 minutes to design a make a quilt design!

The one above is my very first one…. I do kinda like it. One person commented that it almost looks like a sewing machine!

My plan was to do this on my phone on my commute every day. I was having trouble finding an app. First I started with the Paper app. It’s really cool, but not for this. I tried a couple others, but they didn’t work. Then I tried the Illustrator app. I’m sure it’s great, but I couldn’t figure it out…. That’s what I used for the one above.

QDAD-160421-ImFeelinCrafty

IMG_3269

Then I moved to Photoshop on my computer for this next one. I totally see some bias tape at work on this one…

QDAD-160424-ImFeelinCrafty

IMG_3289

And now I’ve found it! The right app! I’m so excited! Another group member suggested the app, Assembly. And it’s perfect for this. I’m figuring out how to use it and looking forward to doing these every day.

My commute is only about 20 minutes each way, which is awesome! But it doesn’t leave me time to do much like cross stitch or sew hexies, or anything like that. I play solitaire. Which is supposedly good for exercising the brain…. But I’d rather be creative. And I think I found a way to do just that!

Operation with Max California

Hello again! We got off schedule a bit, but we’re back on! Today is one of the most creative bloggers I know in making fun things for her kiddos!  I love seeing what she come s up with for the kids! She does some awesome superhero and star wars fun on Sew Geeky and I loved her Little Mermaid outfit. It brought back memories from my little Mermaid costume from high school!!  I’m so honored to have her back again to celebrate the five year anniversary of the series!!! Welcome Ari, from Max California!

Hey guys! I missed out on Sew Ready To Play last year because of my inability to check emails in a timely fashion but fortunately I was lucky enough to snag a spot this year! Two years ago I brought you the Lego Indiana Jones shirt, and this year I’ve got something a little more low-key but totally up my boy’s alley anyway!

Would you believe I have never once played Operation? I saw it a few times in my friends’ games cupboards etc but I never ever got to play it! Every time I saw it at the shops I always wanted to buy it, but just never got around to it. UNTIL NOW! My biggest fear with this game was that I would get electrocuted! You know how there’s those pranks where you hold a pen or something and it zaps you? Yeh, clearly I’ve been tricked too much in the past so I was a bit worried about a game that was going to electrocute me and the kids… however fortunately I was way off ahha.

Since it’s the new game in the house, I decided to make Vincent an Operation Shirt! It’s pretty basic and straight forward but I’ll give you a little mini tutorial for it anyway!

I used the free shirt pattern by Dana over at Made (size 5/6) because it’s just the right size for Vin Dawg. You can really use any shirt pattern you like (obviously!).

I originally had the pieces cut out of fleece and was handsewing them together so they were kind of a lttle puffy and sturdy, HOWEVER it was just coming out really ugly so halfway through the wishbone I scrapped the idea and started again. Using really thick interfacing, I cut out the heart, wishbone and ‘funny bone’ and attached a little press stud through them. Then I found the places on the shirt where I wanted them to go and attached the other part of the snaps. I’m a little worried because the yellow fabric i chose is super crazy ridiculously stretchy, so there’s not a lot of support there. If i had a do-over I would have used iron-on interfacing on the inside of the shirt where the snaps go. Vin just can’t rip his Operation pieces off his shirt as dramatically as he may have wanted.

Since the pieces are small, you can sew them on before you assemble the shirt or afterward; it really doesn’t make that much difference but I did it before I sewed the shirt together just in case I made a mistake I didn’t want to ruin an entire shirt! I was originally going to have the shirt black because black shirts go with everything in Vincent’s wardrobe, but I found the yellow in my stash and figured it was a little more classic! I think the pieces would look even better if I had stitched them to some black felt a bit larger than the outlines.

The little guy loves his new shirt! And his little sister is incredibly jealous so I guess I’m going to have make an Operation Shirt 2.0!

Thank you for having me Louise!
And thank you, Ari!!
Be sure to stop back by for more!

Mermaids!

I did it again…. I submitted a design to the Spoonflower Weekly contest again! It’s been a while since I’ve done it, but I did…

Mermaid-FatQuater=ImFeelinCrafty2

So be sure to vote (hopefully for me!)!

I know I talk a lot about the parties I design, and I don’t seem to show them very often. I’m getting them ready to show, I promise…. I have a huge backlog! BUT… In the meantime, I’m headed home to Bama to the beach next month, so I thought, maybe I’ll design a beachy party that I can photograph while I’m there. So of course the mermaid theme came to life. Then I saw the weekly contest posted! So it was great motivation to get some of the graphics done!

I’m not sure if it’s the final design or not. What do you think? What’s it missing? Would your little girl be interested in a mermaid party like this?

MermaidPanelsm

I’m thinking more of a watercolor look for the actual party graphics….

I can’t wait to get the party going!

 

Our Little Library

I realized I hinted about our Little Library contest we did as a family, but I never showed you the finished, WINNING project! If you follow me on IG, you’ve already seen a lot of this!

LittleLibraryFrontDtl

We have a little library in our neighborhood and Max has wanted his own for a while now. Then I saw the Libraries on The Loose Design Competition! And it wasn’t just open to architects! Kids could enter too. We had a design plan. Then Max and Dad found a great sized box, so the plan changed. Then we found more materials so the design was a bit more organic than we had originally planned!

IMG_5026

IMG_5027

During the building process, Max was interviewed and on the news. He did a great job explaining his design and showing off the box that we had started. I think he stole the show in the interview! You can see it here!

Assembly

For the most part, Max was pretty involved in the building of his library. Once he would have rather played with his pal next door than come home and stain the box. But once he got home he jumped right in! Dad did say that next time we sign Max up for a competition, it needs to be a competition that he can do on his own! Oh, Dad… We all did have fun putting it together!

Step13-Fill2

Then Max filled it up! And all the books disappeared! we filled it up again and most of them disappeared. Again. We hope the books went to a home of kids that needed them. It just took some time and our neighbors are refilling, too!

Library-Winner3

We decided to go to the Seattle Design Festival Street Party to check out the others and see what there was to see and look what we found! Max’s library won his division! Yeah!

SDFestival-String

Max was kinda excited about his win… But way more excited about all the fun stuff at the Street Party! Like the Tape it box! Max and Dad wrapped tape all around and back again!

SDFestival-LIghtTUnnel

The light box was pretty cool! It lit up with motion sensors.

SDFestival-White1

SDFestival-White2

The big plastic tunnel was a hit! Max made friends with this guy and they had beach ball fight! It was pretty cool! Then later we saw the crazy guys behind this wandering around in green blow up suites.

SDFestival-Jump

But even with all these cool things, Max’s all time favorite was this Parkour Visions installation. It’s a gym in town where they seem to mix climbing on these boxes with gymnastics and gym! Max was in love! If he could have stayed on this all day he would have!

Yea to our Winner!

 

FLIP This Pattern- Time to Vote!

Did you see the full post of my outfit yesterday? If not I have it here, but today I need you to VOTE for my look! Please! Voting is going on today and Saturday. That’s it, just two days!

FTPSummer14

Like I said yesterday, I was super excited to participate in the series, but I was super excited once I saw the pattern. In case you don’t know the pattern, it’s the Charlie Top from Zonen 09. And it looks like this:

Charlie_1-2_1024x1024

It’s a lined, knit shirt, basically. The front and back is lined. The pattern also comes with long and short sleeves. Very easy and fun pattern! So I took it from the above look, to the coat and hoodie look below… Check it out!

Flip-Main-ImFeelinCrafty-500

Flip-HoodieSide-ImFeelinCrafty500

I ended up doing two ‘Flips’. I thought and thought about it and I couldn’t come up with ANYTHING! Honestly, I was having a super hard time coming up with anything other than the super cool shirt. But that wasn’t really a flip, now was it? So I got to sewing, anyway. I decided that if I started sewing something that I’d be inspired.

Flip-HoodieSerious-ImFeelinCrafty500

So, the first ‘Flip’ Is a hoodie. From the front, it looks pretty much like the original pattern, huh?  I really do love this pattern. It was super simple and I love that it’s lined.

Flip-HoodieDtl-ImFeelinCrafty5000

Flip-HoodieBack-ImFeelinCrafty500

Flip-HoodieUpSilly-ImFeelinCrafty500

But from the back, it’s obviously a hoodie! My son loves hoodies and he likes them big, so I made it a bit over-sized. I think he likes to pretend that he’s The Emperor from Star Wars!

Flip-HoodieUp-ImFeelinCrafty500

I drafted a hoodie pattern while keeping the bottom of the hoodie the same collar pattern piece of the actual pattern. And then it came to me….

Flip-JacketFront-ImFeelinCrafty500

A coat! A little blazer like coat. The kiddo has such a good time getting dressed up at Easter, maybe he’d like a another little blazer to wear around! (He can really get into the serious model look!)

Flip-JacketFrontDtl-ImFeelinCrafty500

For this one I used the pattern, I just cut two top pieces and overlapped them about an inch or so. I obviously used woven fabric instead of knits. And the kiddo and I designed some stitch patterns around the front. If you follow my blog, you know that I always use snaps… I was really going to use buttons on this project. I had just gotten my machine fixed so it would do the buttons, but it ends up they gave me a wrong foot. AHHH! So I’ll always be known as the snap lady!

Flip-JacketBack-ImFeelinCrafty500

I got this fancy Japanese denim to use for my jacket, but once I got it home, I didn’t like it. I wanted more of a khaki. But what d’ya know! I just happened to have a pair of khaki pants on my shelf to repurpose. Perfect! I used the hem of the pants for the hem of coat!

Flip-JacketFront2-ImFeelinCrafty500

Flip-JacketStanding-ImFeelinCrafty500

Flip-JacketLast-ImFeelinCrafty500

We had a good time picking out the fabric together and detailing the stitches! We also named it the ‘Bubble’ top, because it’s not quite polka dots. More like bubbles… And the coat lining is word bubbles… Get it! We think we’re pretty clever, me and my kiddo!

Flip-Last-ImFeelinCrafty500

 

I had fun with it! If you’ve made it here, you read the whole thing! And that’s awesome! Now, don’t forget to vote! Thanks again for voting!!
