It is great to see some photos come in from other quilters joining me this month in my monthly stitch along. I thought it would be fun to show off their work. I'll be updating this page as new photos come through. So far we have photos for week one. I cannot wait to see more!

Honestly, I had no idea what I was going to do with these strips before I started. I could probably just join them up but then that would be a little boring. I did decide to join two strips together to see where it took me.black and white strips joined

March Stitch Along - week 1 instructions

Welcome back to Stitch Alongs. If this is your first Stitch Along with me, it is very easy to join in. Just follow the instructions each week to create a small art quilt. We usually try to make them no more than a standard piece of paper, but you can make them any size you like. We like to see what you create so send in a photo once you have completed the instructions each week. These challenges are a great way to try new techniques or test out your designing skills. I hope you will join me as we create a fun challenge for March.

October Stitch Along Week 4 - three binding methods

Posted by Ruth on 27 October 2016 | 0 Comments

Week four of our October Challenge is all about finishing off, but let's try using a binding or method of finishing off that you don't normally use. Sometimes it is fun to step outside the box and give something new a try especially if we have been doing the same for years. It so happens that I have used three different bindings this week that are not my regular kind so thought it would be cool to share these here.

My October Stitch Along Week 3

Stitching is always my favorite part and usually I tend to use free-motion to attach applique pieces but this time, I decided to fall back on the old familiar blanket stitching. I haven't done this in a long time, but I figured seeing as these blocks were going to be "baby" handled, they need to have very secure edges. Because of this, I decided the original variegated threads I'd selected were probably not ideal. I found some others to match the fabrics. I love these bright colors!

October Stitch Along Week 3

These weeks certainly come around quickly! Did you manage to connect the selection you collected in week 1 with someone you were thinking about in week 2? I think the alphabet quilt certainly helped me. In fact, I had so much fun putting it together that I decided to make a second block. I'll tell you about it below, but first what's in store for this week?

A friend of mine is expecting so that is who I'm focusing this challenge on. Last week I mentioned letters from the ABC's pattern so I'm going to connect both of those ideas to come up with one block.
