Disappearing 9-Patch Block – X’s & O’s

Baby Quilts/ Charm Pack Quilts/ Lap Quilts/ Layer Cake Quilts/ Uncategorized

Hey Y’all!

I get the pleasure of speaking with the Johnson County Quilt Guild on the 27th.  I am working on a fun precut demonstration for them, but just had to share with everyone!  Here’s a new and fun take on a disappearing 9-patch using 3.5″ squares.

The line is an older one by Riley Blake Designs called A Beautiful Thing by Zoe Pearn.  I don’t think you can get it anymore, but I think we can all agree it’s simply adorable!

Anywho, I hope you enjoy!

Until next time, Happy Quilting!

Quilting from ‘Square’ One – Binding the Quilt!

Charm Pack Quilts/ Lap Quilts/ Quilting from 'square' one

Brr it’s cold outside! Fall/Winter has finally hit North Texas and I could not be happier.  I don’t have to turn on my air conditioner today and can even wear long sleeves.  It’s also my college’s rival football game today (GO BOBCATS!) so I am desperately searching for an online source to get a local Montana channel…wish me luck.

Who is ready to bind this quilt? I know I am!  Let’s get started…

Quilting from ‘Square’ One – QUILTING!!!

Charm Pack Quilts/ Quilting from 'square' one

Hey Y’all! Well, the rain has begun here in north Texas so that can only mean one thing; fall is here!  We can finally catch up to the rest of the country and pull out our sweaters, and boots…even if they are rain boots.  I am so excited for apple cider, pot pies and all things fall.  I would also like to thank you all for being patient with me this week.  I know I’m a bit tardy on this post, no excuses, just bit a little more off than I can chew. But the good news is I’m getting caught up which means we get to QUILT today! Yay!

I contemplated a write up on this one, but honestly, I think it’s easier and more self explanatory to watch the video. If you have any questions at all please do not hesitate in reaching out.

Here are links to the items we used today –

Next week we’ll be going over binding and some tips and tricks with that….and once that’s done you can cuddle under your very own hand made quilt. Just in time for the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade.

p.s. I’m going to add a special bonus post next week…(think quilt label)

Until next time; Happy Quilting!

Quilting from ‘Square’ One – Backing, Basting, Pinning

Charm Pack Quilts/ Quilting from 'square' one

Happy Day Everyone!

Today we’re going to go over how to make your backing, spray the batting to the front and back as well as pin for quilting.  I’m going to be honest here…this is my LEAST favorite part of the quilt making process.  I think it’s because now we’re dealing with yards of fabric and not small blocks.  It can become a circus to try to tackle it all.  Likewise, I have a dog and a cat who have sixth sense about quilts and always need to get in the middle of the process.  I’ll add a cute ‘outtake’ below so you can see what I’m talking about.  Okay enough babbling…as I said least favorite, but with these techniques it should be fairly painless.  What do ya say? Let’s get started!
