11  QUILTING / Quilting: Discussion and Questions / Re: 2016 QuiltAlong, now with prizes! on: May 09, 2016 07:04:49 AM
Monday Check In!

Happy Monday! Please check in by typing "May 9 Check In" and then answering/joining in with the check-in discussion question (you have through the end of the week/Sunday to be counted for this week's check in, but please put "May 9" for my tracking purposes).

Today's Discussion Question: Let's talk about thread! Do you love a certain brand of thread or just go for whatever works and is close at hand?

I always use all 100% cotton for quilting and piecing, but I tend to bounce around between a few brands. Usually Gutterman, Connecting Threads, and Aurifil. I usually piece with gray or cream/tan colored thread and will sometimes break out pretty colors for quilting.

I've hung a couple mini quilts up in my cubicle at work and it's so bright and cheery! And I've had some fun conversations, the woman who is training me keeps getting distracted because she wants to look at one (a really beautiful one a friend made me in a swap with some fabulous hand quilting) and I talked to one of our product reps today too, apparently his sister in law has a long arm! Smiley

It looks good to me! If anything sticks out a little, it's the larger, lighter blocks (the peach/pinks)? Can you replace those with something darker? Or maybe just audition a couple darker fabrics on top to see if that changes the overall look of the quilt?

Monday Check In!

Hey all! Please check in by typing "May 2 Check In" and then answering/joining in with the check-in discussion question (you have through the end of the week/Sunday to be counted for this week's check in, but please put "May 2" for my tracking purposes).

Today's Discussion Question: Do you do any charity quilting? For whom? What's your go to pattern if you have one?

I recently quit my do.Good Stitches quilting group that I'd been a part of for 3-ish years because it was getting too expensive and took up a little more time than I wanted. I've also been going to my guild's monthly charity sew, but it's a weekday event and I'm a working girl again!  I used to donate to Quilts for Kids, that might be a better option now for my time availability!

Hey guys, no check-in this week since I totally missed it, everyone gets credit for this week! I'm starting a new job Monday, which means I'll be busier, but it also means I'll be on a real schedule for the first time in 7 years, so hoping a lot of things will settle back into place for me!

What a great idea for two different teams! This pattern is super cute, I really like that the sides aren't squared off. As for quilting, it seems like it might be hard to line up and get really precise quilting lines on both sides like you're talking about, but I've never tried it so maybe someone else has some better input for you!

I took a block printing class with Valori Wells today, it was so much fun!  I did a little block printing (on paper) in a high school art class, but this was so much better printing on fabric. I carved 4 little blocks and then spent a good chunk of time printing onto various fabrics. I am looking forward to making my fabric into something fun!

The blocks I carved



The lower right on the white fabric are my test prints

It's Carl Frankenstein's Flower by Artisania. It makes a 24" block, so I'm just going to add more fabric (the background color- nothing fancy) to make it bigger.

Oh, that's a fun block, hadn't seen it before!

Mel, that looks great!
