The gift-giving season is almost upon us - are you ready? If most of us are being honest with ourselves, we probably have left a few until the last minute, so here are some ideas for some quick and easy projects that will make it look like you’ve been planning and sewing for this all year long!
Fall is here and for quilters, it means time to start thinking about everything from gifts to seasonal home decor. If you're one of the quilters who is ready to start decorating, but want something different, the newest GO! dies to join the AccuQuilt collection are going to excite you! We're introducing the GO! Santa's Stocking project die and the GO! Classic 2" Alphabet Uppercase Set and GO! Gingerbread Cookie appliqué dies.
Hi, It’s Marjorie Busby from bluefeatherquiltstudio.com to tell you about a fun wall hanging that I made. First, you have to know that this was a complete experiment. And it did take three tries before it worked the way I envisioned. It’s an idea that’s been floating around in my head for a very long time and came from a vacation visit to Waikiki where there were small wall hangings in the elevators of our hotel. Several times a day the wall hangings were changed with a greeting suitable for the time of day.
To me, Christmas is the most wonderful time of the year. I love this time of year with the beautiful lights, gathering together with family & friends and the wonderful cool weather we experience here in the Phoenix! It is one of the few times in the year that we really need quilts to stay warm, so the timing is always perfect to break out my Christmas quilts. This month I designed a lovely Christmas Throw named “Christmas Wishes.” Now you may be thinking, it is a week before Christmas, how could I complete this quilt in time? Well the beauty of Christmas is that is comes every year. So now is the time to start planning for next year. This pattern would also work well in any color family, so you can make one for each season.
