OMG...Who can resist this Fabulous Halloween Fabric Line just released...called

I featured this Beautiful set of Halloween Cuteness on my YouTube Channel...you can find that here...

I purchased the complete line of 24 Fabulous Fabrics in 1/2 yard Cuts...and I got it from www.hunniequilt.etsy.com

Be sure to check out this Super NICE Fabric Shop on Etsy...the gal who owns the shop is named Minju...and you simply will not find a nicer person to do your fabric shopping business with.  She just goes above and beyond for her customers.

Let her know I sent you...and NO I am not sponsored in any way by Hunnie Quilt...I just LOVE her shop that much!

Here's a quick snapshot of the whole line...

CELEBRATE THE USA!

usa patriotic sign finished

It's a little Machine Applique Embroidery finish Day at The Quilted Story...using my Sweet Matilda Jane Embroidery Machine...yep...she's a Brother PR655 model and I LOVE her so!

This project was such a quick little make and I just LOVE the powerful statement it makes sitting in my kitchen along with the rest of my Patriotic display!  

Nothing says WOW...like a little Red...White and BLUE!

Can I get an Amen?

This design and all the little "pieces parts" are listed in the "Tools of the Trade" at the end of the blog post...so..if you want to make your own...check that out and then go to my You Tube Channel (The Quilted Story) and watch my 2nd Video...as I talk about it there too!

It's NO secret that Kathleen has "limited" bow making skills...but at this point in life...all that matters is I gave it an honest try.  I think that every time I do make a bow to add to one of my finishes...I get a little bit better at it and have a nicer bow in the long run.

Just remember...if you add a little "something something" to the center of your bow...for instance for this project I added that little glittery foam star...you can cover a multitude of sins and craziness happening with it!  LOL!

I call that a win win...how about YOU?

Embroider ON!

PATRIOTS FLAG WINDOW!
Friday, 10 June 2022 07:27

patriots flag window frame finished 2

Have you had a moment to venture over to my NEW You Tube Channel...The Quilted Story?  My "Patriots Flag" Window was the star of the show!  Gracious BE!...this might be my Favorite "Non Quilt...Quilt"!

How about YOU?

Here's the Skinny on what I did...

I designed this Beautiful Foundation Paper Pieced Pattern (now available in my Etsy Shop) and decided to shake it up a bit...by adding blocks to my White Washed Window Frame that I purchased at my Local Hobby Lobby.  I was just at my Hobby Lobby yesterday...and YES...they still have these available!

After I pieced the actual Paper Pieced Block...I went ahead and added a simple white border around each individual block...so the block would "stand out" from the window frame edge. 

Then...I added a piece of Warm and Natural batting to the backside...placed my Appliqued Star in the center of the Blue Square and Machine Quilted AND Machine Appliqued the Star all at the same time...this gave my block "body" all while it appeared like any other quilt in my Studio!

Isn't that a win win situation?

I then mounted the "Patriots Flag" panels onto a piece of foam core to make "individual" finished quilt blocks...

2nd a patriots window

Isn't that FABULOUS?

Of course...the window had 6 openings...so I made 6 Panels!

Here's a Close Up of all her Red...White...and Blue...glory...

There's a few more "details" about my Patriots Flag Window Frame Quilt on my You Tube Channel...so be sure to check me out there and give me a Thumbs UP!

Quilt ON!
