How Barbara Began Making Victorian Sewing Boxes

Barbara Dieges' Victorian Box 001I had nothing to do one day, so I spent it at the Pasadena (CA) Library. They have an awesome section, or did at the time, of old magazines. When I am talking old, I am being literal. This padded hexagonal box was illustrated in an 1867 Godey’s Lady’s Book; which was a lady's magazine of that day. There was no pattern, so I used the illustration to make my own. The pictures all show lace, but if you don't like lace and ruffles, you can just use cording. Cording is used on three of the lids, so the lace can be dispensed with on the other three. I like the lace, because, first of all, it is pretty and it helps hide the gap between the lids.

Door Quilts

Posted by Anita on 30 March 2017 | 0 Comments

When I first heard of "door quilts" I thought it was sort of a strange idea. But, now I see what fun they can be. I designed a couple for my Celebrations class. They can be anything.... I designed name quilts for a child's room, but it doesn't have to be limited to that idea. It could be "Dad's Study"... or "Do Not Disturb, Homework in Process"... or "Nap Time" or a Holiday Quilt, quilts for various seasons, a memory quilt, a quilt to Celebrate your child's favorite team or movie star or.....

There is an art to making water in motion, and in this class, you will learn many techniques that will give your water scene that realism that makes your scene come alive!

Montage Quilting Part Two

Posted by on 13 March 2017 | 0 Comments

Tags:

Today I wanted to share this fun little video that Marilyn Belford made about her Montage Quilting class. If you didn't already know, Marilyn creates exquisite quilts and teaches how she does that. A big part of creating the right art quilt is in the designing which is all covered in this online workshop.... but not only that! The second half is all about putting your design into fabric, from enlarging the design to making templates and transferring your design into fabric and stitching. By the end of this extensive course, you will have your own unique art quilt.

Stealing isn't Cool!

Posted by Ruth on 9 March 2017 | 34 Comments

Tags: ,

It's taken me a little time to write this blog post because I am still in shock-horror of what has happened to me. The purpose of this post is to make my fellow quilters, teachers, and colleagues aware of what is going on. When nothing is said, nothing changes so my hope is that you will spread the word so this sort of behavior doesn't continue.
