Sew'n Wild Oaks Quilting Blog: Country Charmer Kits

Country Charmer Kits

Hello Everyone, My last post was about Autumn, this post is about Christmas. So if you don't want to even think about the Christmas word, stop reading now. I put a few Country Charmer kits together at the shop, and I liked them so much I decided to buy one! I have a issue with fabrics, kits, books and quilting notions coming home with me on my workday. It is a good thing that I only work one day a week. You know the phrase, Will Work For Fabric. I thought, I'll just make one block…

A Finished Scrappy Trip-Around-the-World Quilt! | Diary of a Quilter - a quilt blog

Someone cue the marching band: another UFO (unfinished object) is complete. Behold the the long-time-WIP (work in progress) Scrappy-Trip-along is finished! This quilt was started over two years ago. I finally got serious about finishing it this past January when I became determined to start tracking and finishing all those (many, many…many) WIPS. This is such a fun project – a great way to use up 2 1/2″ wide scraps or to just bust through a lot of fabric stash. Bonnie Hunter wrote the…

Sew'n Wild Oaks Quilting Blog

Hello my friends, Here's a Smilebox creation to keep you inspired. I even included two blocks that are almost completed that you will be receiving soon. I've said it before and I'll say it again.....quilt every day even if you only quilt for 10 minutes. All of your "10 minutes" add up to hours and before you know it you have a completed block then a completed quilt. Break the project down into manageable sections and don't get overwhelmed with the big picture. Remember you are creating an…
