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

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 3

Back to the Hourglasses for Row 3 of the Yonder quilt along. Nothing new about this row since we did them a couple of weeks ago. You’ll need ⅓ yard of the color if you’re using all one fabric. Again, you can get by with ¼ yard IF, and it’s a big if, your fabric

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

Yonder Quilt Along: Planning

To quote the Sound of Music, “Let’s start at the very beginning, a very good place to start.” For this Yonder quilt along, or QAL, that means fabric and color placement. When we did the Yonder the First, the blue and white Yonder, we wanted to show off how fabrics from different lines, designers, companies,

The Smorgasblocks: Arrow

All signs point to this being a very exciting smorgasblock, the arrow by Carla of Grace and Favour. Carla designed this to mix in with other blocks in a fun throw quilt, but since you can adjust the length. Think of using it in a row quilt. How about in a baby quilt? Or you could

The Smorgasblocks: Spinning Pyramids

Is everyone enjoying their holiday weekend? I’m not an outdoorsy person (pasty people don’t do well in sunlight), so while my neighbors blow up everything in sight I stay inside and sew. But in keeping with the holiday spirit, I watch National Treasure. Because it’s historical, obviously. And in National Treasure, Nicolas Cage guides us
