Are you going to the Houston Quilt Festival?  Last week we shared a project for keeping that all essential camera close.  But, do you have a place to put your nametag and all of the other little bits you collect while walking the show?  Why not make your own quilt show essential bag we found at The Seasoned Homemaker. Wear it around your neck so your hands are free to do lots of fabric fondling.

Quilter's Quips and Tips: Grape Escape
October 20, 2014

Posted in Quilters Quips/Tips  |   Submit a Comment

Several people have asked if it would be possible to provide precut / prefused circles for Alex's pattern, Grape Escape (50" x 50") - and yippee - they are here!

The kit has over 600 circles in 8 luscious purple fabrics that Alex hand chose for you! The pattern calls for just under 600 - the kit has just over 600. The cost is $24.95 (special savings - normally $29.95). Also, if you have an Accuquilt Go (woot-woot) - there is a custom die available. Imagine how much time it would take if you had to cut them all out by hand...

Click here to order circles, order pattern, or accuquilt die.

Antique Ohio Amish Quilts from the Darwin Bearley Collection at San Jose Museum of Quilts
October 18, 2014

Posted in Just for Fun  |   Submit a Comment

A new exhibit is opening at the San Jose Museum of Quilts & TextilesAntique Ohio Amish Quilts from the Darwin Bearley Collection includes over forty bed, crib and doll quilts, illustrating the breadth of the Ohio Amish quilt making tradition between 1880 and 1940.

The strong graphics and vivid color combinations of these quilts have inspired artists and quilt makers since they were first seen outside the Amish community.

Each quilt in the Bearley Collection also contains a story about its maker, recipient, or the dealer/collector who found these objects, brought them out of Amish homes and into the market place. Together, these stories reveal much about the culture that made the quilts and the one that collected them.

 

The exhibit runs from November 15, 2014 - March 1, 2015, click here to learn more
