Yonder Quilt Along: Row 13

It snowed this week and I saw plenty of geese flying south. Maybe they’re heading to the land of the Tula sea shells? I had a fat quarter of the Tula Pink sea shells from Zuma. And it was plenty. Like always. When it comes to these little rows, it’s so hard to give a

Yonder Quilt Along: Row 12

Another short row! Man, I love these. Even though this is one of the tricky arch rows, it went together fast. I’m working on greens, moving from yellow greens into blue greens, so this stripe is a great transition piece. I thought it was from Tula’s basic line but the selvedge says Tabby Road. It’s

Conifer

Conifer! Conifer! Conifer! I had this idea to make pine cones last year when I put together the Gremlin’s Christmas stocking. When I started it, the strips were too tiny, you couldn’t see the fabric, and I was worried it looked like piles of (reindeer poop). I also didn’t have it separated out into blocks;

Yonder Quilt Along: Row 11

I am so excited that we are finally on the short rows! Rows 1-10 didn’t seem that long, but after blasting through Row 11 they seem gigantic. Row 11 is another ladder row, so simple and quick is the name of the game. I had a fat quarter of the green manta rays from Zuma,

Yonder Quilt Along: Row 9 & 10

I knew it was going to happen eventually; even with the casual pace of a new row every two weeks I was bound to fall behind. Row 9, another row of Arch blocks, was it. Ah well. That’s why we like to keep it casual. I used a green with touches of pink from Tula’s

Yonder Quilt Along: Row 7

Hooray for Row 7, aka the Double Ladder Row! After the last two more intricate rows, it’s a nice break to do something easy. My ROYGBIV Yonder gradient continues with this yellow from Pinkerville. It’s kind of an oddball with the mint on the lemon yellow, but that also makes it a great transition piece

Yonder Quilt Along: Row 6

I’m back! After staying up until 2:38 finishing up sewing Row 6, not because it’s hard but because I can’t start stitching until after the Gremlin is in bed. Such is life. Row 6 is the first row of V blocks. Now there are small, medium, and large V blocks in Yonder. There are pages

Yonder Quilt Along: Row 2

On to Yonder Row 2. You will need ¼ yard if you’re doing all one colorful fabric for this row. If you have no miscuts, this is what you will have left over. I’m using this big jellyfish print from Tula Pink’s Zuma line. I never get too precious about my fabric or trying to

Nene

When Brenda was little, she lived in Hawaii. We’ve mentioned it before because Anneliese is still jealous. Anyway, Brenda remembers seeing robins from the mainland in the zoo and animals that were in the zoos on the mainland wandering around, including the nenes. A nene is a Hawaiian goose. When we came up with this
