Summer Happenings

 

Hello, hello!  I hope all of you have had a wonderful summer!  My girls have been back in school for a week now, and I am enjoying a new schedule.  I always forget how much can be accomplished without little ones at home.

Over the last few summers, I have enjoyed taking some time off blogging.  Blog silence doesn’t mean project silence though! =)  I thought I’d share some of the photos I have posted to Instagram over the last several weeks.

Are any of you working on Lori Holt, of Bee in my Bonnet, blocks from Farm Girl Vintage?  Next week, I get to share as part of Lori’s “Farm Girl Fridays” blog hop she has been hosting.  So, I got to making some blocks.

Let me tell you, these blocks are so addictive!  I am making the 6″ size and using a mix of Prairie fabrics (which by the way, yardage is coming soon–October!) and Essex yarn dyed linen in Olive(that’s my background fabric).

I made 12 of these little blocks and my plan is to sash them and quilt them into a cute little mini.  You’ll see the finished project next week.

I have also been working on getting caught up with the Fig Tree Mystery Block of the Month.

IMG_1649I just received the month 10 shipment over the weekend and I am currently caught up to Month 4.  So, needless to say, I need to get cracking!

These blocks are a mix of Fig Tree fabric lines and patterns.  They are quite fun to work on!

And a completely new project I have started working on–crochet.  I am working on a Sunburst Granny square afghan.  These are the yarns that I have chosen to work with–a wonderful mix of Prairie colors.  And I have really been enjoying working on these little squares when I have some down time.  I always recommend having a hand project to work on especially as we start getting into the cooler months of Fall and Winter.

I’ll share more about this project soon.

And of course, I am working on some new patterns.  Have you guys seen the peeks of Bonnie & Camille’s new Vintage Picnic line?  It mixes wonderfully with Gooseberry and Hello Darling.

IMG_1651I know some of you have been waiting on the pattern for my In Stitches & Spool Time patterns.  Well, they are finally available and I’ll be sharing those with you soon as well.

I’ll be back later this week with a project that I just finished up over the weekend.

Talk to you soon.

Vintage Fancy Medallion Quilt

Vintage Fancy Medallion

Hello, Hello everyone!–First blog post of 2015..craziness!  So what has been happening here at the Yoder household?  Well, since my last post, we Christmassed & we New Yeared, got some stomach flu and some regular flu–battled some coughs(are still battling).  Traveled to Sight & Sound in PA with the girls as a surprise Christmas gift(some of the stomach flu was happening then).  Our little pup, Lilli, got really sick but she is much better now.

Some trunk shows happened, some classes were taught, a lot of great quilty friends were met, some meet-ups with blog readers were had.  And of course plenty of sewing has gone on.

Vintage Fancy

It’s been a busy start to what promises to be an exciting year.

If you follow me on IG (lmshabby the first letter is a lowercase L) or facebook you’ve seen snippets and pictures here and there of my Vintage Fancy Medallion quilt.  This is an additional pattern I have designed as a companion pattern to Playful Petals.

Medallion Center

Vintage Fancy finishes at 66″ x 66″ and features a little bit of everything; half square triangles, flying geese, and of course petal applique.

Quilting

I machine quilted my quilt on my Bernina with only about 6″ of throat space–that was certainly a challenge–and a lot of bobbins!

For all of you Playful Petals fans, you now have 3 extra patterns made especially to compliment the patterns in the book:

And the Mini Buds pattern can be found here.

Waiting in the Wings

Bonnie & Camille

 

You know when you finish(or at least, mostly finish) one project you have a million others just waiting for you to dive in?  Well, that’s where I’m at this morning.  I just finished up my Underground Railroad quilt top yesterday:

Underground Railroad Quilt Top

And, now I’m ready to start another project–I know I should finish the quilting on this one but there is something so much fun about starting a new project and cutting into new fabrics.

Fabrics

It’s a little bit like when you finish a book you’ve been reading for awhile, you’ve become quite familiar with the characters, have lived with them, know their flaws and imperfections, their strengths.  And then, the book is over…and the characters in the next book are waiting, waiting to surprise you with their quirks and personalities.  It’s a blank slate, another opportunity to fall in love with a new cast of characters.  Finishing and Starting a new quilt is kinda like that.

Projects

I have 2 stacks of fabric taunting me from the sidelines, this wonderful Bonnie & Camille stack which is a mix of a number of different lines.  I have the pattern written up for this one and am just ready to dive in.

And I also have another Bonnie stack waiting for me–this one from Bonnie Christine:

Bonnie Christine

A mix of fabrics from Winged, Sweet as Honey, & Reminisce.  For this quilt I have the pattern somewhat ready–I think that I am going to offer it in tutorial form on my blog so I don’t really need to make a fancy pattern.

Fabric

So, two bundles just waiting to be made.  And of course my little houses bundle also anxiously waiting to be built.

Liberty & Essex

Oh how much fun it is having fabrics just waiting to be transformed into a quilt!

I’m not headed to Quilt Market this weekend so that means I will have some sewing time.  Now to decide which project to start on!
