Super-size me box bag

Friday, August 8th, 2014

I bought a new travel-iron, so first my order of business was to make a cozy, protective bag for it. Pretty much the iron was an opportunity to make something cute and useful. There are 18 gazillion patterns and tutorials for box bags, but the tutorial (by Stacy Schlyer) I found most helpful is from the PBS show “Sew It All“.   The tutorial is short and to the point, and the illustrations are clear and easy to understand (huge thumbs up to the illustrator!). I read by illustration so this tutorial was perfect for me. I used my own measurements and made a jumbo, super-sized me bag. I measured around the box my iron came in and then tinkered with muslin-ish fabric to yeild a just-the-right-size bag.

I made my outer bag by serendipitously/making-it-up-as-I-went-along into a small quilt top. I then sandwiched it with batting and a muslin backing and machine quilted it. I trimmed it to 16″ x 20″ (and also cut a matching piece of fabric for the liner).
quilt top for the jumbo box bag

I used a 20″ zipper for the 16″ edge (that I bought at zipit - the best zipper source ever) which gave me lots of room for trimming. Probably overkill, but I always am in need of wiggle room.  Always.  After some sewing (and un-sewing and re-sewing), I finished my bag.  It’s a perfect fit for my travel iron and it’s box.  Of note, I LOVE my Hamilton Beach travel iron.  It was an impulse buy as I was totally glamored by the shiny sole-plate and the low price (under $20 USD). This iron is so good I’ve been using it at home as an everyday iron this week. My Oliso is jealous.

When I finished I thought, dang, this box is as big as a loaf of bread. Sure enough, it’s the exact size of the Costco version of an Oroweat loaf.

And of course I had to check. Curiosity may kill the cat, but I’ll be a rock-star if I’m ever invited to a sandwich pot-luck.

DWR Challenge

Thursday, July 18th, 2013

Double Wedding Ring
The NYC Mod Quilters have teamed up with EZ Quilting/Simplicity, Juki and Interweave for the Double Wedding Ring Challenge using the Darlene Zimmerman EZ Quilting/Simplicity Double Wedding Ring rulers.
Double Wedding Ring Challenge

Remember the Dresden Challenge the SLMQD did with Darlene’s Dresden ruler?  This is the same type of challenge and it is open to everyone who wants to participate.  If a challenge isn’t fun enough, there’s a cavalcade of prizes and multiple categories to enter in.

You can read all about the challenge here.

The nice people at Simplicity have given me one set of Darlene’s ruler for a give-away for one lucky winner. More at the end of this post.
DWR tools for Double Wedding Ring Challenge

The rulers can be purchased from participating retailers or you can purchase them directly from Simplicity here (and the optional solid arc here) or from Darlene here (and the optional solid arc here.).  There’s a complete Dresden set plus the single arc ruler if you don’t want to make a pieced arc (like I did).

This is the first time I made a double wedding ring quilt (well, mutant coaster quilt), and I found this tutorial on the Simplicity website helpful.  I was putzing around trying to learn how to use these tools, and hopefully trigger an idea to make something unconventional and new with them.  While I was playing with the rulers, I discovered a 10″ Moda layer cake is perfect for two single arcs and two connector squares.  PERFECT!   I dove into my Moda’s Happy Go Lucky by Bonnie and Camille stash and set out to make a mutant drink coaster.  Four 10″ fabrics + background fabric = one ring.
Double Wedding Ring Challenge

I made some paper templates to insure I’d cut in just the right spot.

I used Robert Kaufman’s Kona Snow for my background. The tools are marked so I knew exactly what size pieces of Kona I needed to make before cutting out the shapes. Nif. Ty.

I got a little cocky and went pin-commando.  I wanted to use my seam ripper, anyway.
Double Wedding Ring Challenge

A steam iron, pins (learned that the hard way) and a good spritz of starch is helpful.
Double Wedding Ring Challenge

Lots and lots of pinning (the perfect job for a Duck Dynasty marathon) and patience and steam and more pinning.

Martingale is giving a hardcopy book of Modern Quilts from the Blogging Universe to one lucky winner!
Modern Quilts from the Blogging Universe

My quilt/project in the book is my Juicy quilt.  Juicy because it’s your basic HST/hourglass & flying geese blocks, making it easy to sew up while sewing with friends and being able to keep up with juicy conversations.
Juicy - my quilt in Modern Quilts from the Blogging Universe

Juicy - my quilt in Modern Quilts from the Blogging Universe

I love this book and diversity of the quilts featured. Some super modern, and some edging on traditional (like mine) - all super fun and beautiful. I have my eye on at least 3 quilts that I HAVE to make, and even if my quilt wasn’t in this book I’d want it for my library. Curious what’s inside the book - you can peek inside here.

Leave a comment below by noon-ish PST on Monday, April 8th, and I’ll draw one lucky winner for the MQBU book.

Giveaway - it’s raining Modern Quilts from the Blogging Universe!

Tuesday, January 22nd, 2013

My new favorite book is Modern Quilts from the Blogging Universe - a compilation book published by Martingale. I love this book not just because I have a quilt and pattern in it… but because it’s such a great book! Martingale really outdid themselves and put out an aaaaaamazing book. Visually stunning layout, beautiful quilts, great illustrations, amazing bloggers (!!!) and jam & jelly packed with projects.
Modern Quilts from the Blogging Universe

What I love about MQBU is that Martingale chose to just put the projects in the book. Just projects - LOVE that. All the other stuff like binding, sammiching, quilting, etc - has all been left out (and delegated to a URL to their website) to make room for more projects. Genius. Seriously. Genius. That I’m lucky enough to have been included in it, and having gotten to use my Happy Mochi Yum Yum collection… that’s gravy. Crazy, crazy, gravy!

My quilt/project in the book is my Juicy quilt. Juicy because it’s your basic HST/hourglass & flying geese blocks, making it easy to sew up while sewing with friends and being able to keep up with juicy conversations.
Juicy - my quilt in Modern Quilts from the Blogging Universe

Plus I think my quilt blocks look like juicy little nuggets of Starburst candy.

Flashback photos: A mini-Juicy I made with 2½” Kate Spain’s Terrain and Central Park charms (and the charms are extra special since Kate gave them to me!). The mini-Juicy led to the Juicy that’s in the MQBU.

Blogger’s Quilt Festival - Fall 2012

Wednesday, October 31st, 2012

My two favorite times of the year are when Amy Ellis has her Blogger’s Quilt Festival. Both festivals coincide ish with Spring and Fall Quilt Market’s. If you’re unfamiliar with the BQF, it’s an online quilt show where everyone posts their favorite quilt (at the moment). BQF has evolved and grown over the years, and now there’s even Viewers Choice voting - and prizes. Lots and lots of generous sponsor prizes! If you’re interested in participating in the show-n-tell aspect (like I am) and/or submitting your quilt for voting… and/or to vote… or just plain want to see a bounty of beautiful quilts - head over there now - PS, submissions close today!

Here’s my favorite quilt at the moment, it’s my teenie quilt-as-you-go-log-cabin quilt I made specifically for some Tammis Keefe Tribute cat fabric scraps I got from my friend Elizabeth (pretty much where 99.5% of all my amazing scraps come from!).

I also secretly make teenie quilts just so I have something to bind. On the night of the final game between St. Louis and the Giants for the NLCS title, I rushed to get my binding sewn on so I’d have it to bind during the game.
SF Giants Halloween Christmas-ish teenie quilt

Full disclosure: I find baseball painfully boring, but the Giants are The Other home team (go A’s!) so it was exciting and fun to watch and my teenie quilt was going to be a Lucky Giants Quilt. And they won the NLCS.
SF Giants Halloween Christmas-ish teenie quilt
And then the Giants won the World Series. Coincidence? PS: You’re welcome, San Francisco.

So now that the World Series is over, my teenie quilt is now my Happy Halloween Quilt.

And because I’m so lazy because I’m so filled with holiday spirit and like to over extend my holiday seasons - I threw in some graphite Winterkist into my SF Giants-Halloween-Christmas-ish teenie quilt. Bam. Seasonal multi-tasking.  PS:  You’re welcome, Santa Claus. SF Giants Halloween Christmas-ish teenie quilt

Dear Towel. I love you.

Friday, September 7th, 2012

Dear Towel,
I love you.  Yes, love.  Little hearts circled around atop my head when I first spotted you at IKEA.  On the drive home, I glanced a few times to the back seat to see how you were doing.  With every glance I sighed and professed my love.  I love you, Towelie.
Towel love

Oh Towelie, I know you’re supposed to be a bathmat - but it breaks my heart to just toss you on the cold, cold floor.
Towel love

There you go, Towelie - now I can see you every time I enter the bathroom.  I smile every time I see you.  All the more eager I am now to finish painting the not-my-taste green to the beautiful Clay Bisque on the other wall.
Towel love

I love you so much Towelie that I could pee. Good thing I’m sitting in just the right spot.
Towel love

And now, Towelie… it’s time for you to make some babies!
Towel love

The Anatomy of Lemonade

Monday, June 11th, 2012

I bought some great London fabric by The Henley Studio (from Makower UK/Andover) from both Pink Chalk Fabrics and the Fat Quarter Shop.  My big plan was to sew with it on the weekend of the Diamond Jubilee, as well as simultaneously with Fat Quarterly’s London retreat.  Transporting myself to London from my little spot at our Portland MQG All Day Sew.  I had it all planned out - I would make another Lunch bag from Ayumi’s pattern (I think this makes 9 bags, now).  I was so careful, too.  Making sure I had my directions running in all the right ways.

Easy, this is the 9th time I’ve made Ayumi’s pattern.
Focused and mindful.
No sweat.
Piece of cake.
I can make Bag9.0 with my eyes closed.
I can sew this bag in my sleep.
I don’t even need to use a machine… I can mind-sew it.
Bag9.0 Diamond Jubilee Edition

Of course… naturally… I am full of $#!+.  Oh yeah (Kool-aid Man voice).
Bag9.0 Diamond Jubilee Edition

Sigh. Not gonna toss it. I sewed the outer and inner units together and trimmed it with some top stitching. I guess I have a too-small iron cover.
Bag9.0 Diamond Jubilee Edition

Or a hat for Traci.  (Meg, Amber and Jen are the happy little sewing bees in the background)
Bag9.0 Diamond Jubilee Edition

With no purse to finish now, I’ll just watch Violet make her beautiful bee block for Sally.
Violet's bee block for Mo

After PMQG All Day Sew we go out for Mexican food (so very London-ish, eh)… I watch Traci and Violet drink something out of giant cereal bowl that tasted like Froot Loops with tequila to me.  One sip and I was glad I was sticking with a Coke.  This has nothing to do with my sewing fail - I’m just so amused by this drink that I’m making it a part of Bag9.0’s story.
Violet, Traci, and a bowl of tequila & Froot Loops

The following day I pick up where I left off, and redo Bag9.0’s main body. So cute is Ayumi’s pattern, and I love it in this London fabric (+ some of Darlene Zimmerman’s long ago Little Darling’s from my stash for the band and handles).
Bag9.0 Diamond Jubilee Edition

I’m so glad I Instagram’d/tweet’d/flickr’d my Bag9.0 Diamond Jubilee Edition fail - Sandie left me a comment on my flickr pic with a great tip: “Turn it inside out and then fold a couple inches to the outside.  It’ll still be upside down inside, but once you fill it, who’s gonna notice?“.   And that’s just what I did.
Bag9.0 Diamond Jubilee Edition

Lesson learned: When life gives you lemons… Instagram/tweet/flickr about it. Thank you for the lemonade, Sandie!

Wednesday, May 9th, 2012

Last February the Portland Modern Quilt Guild had a very special visitor - Kathy Miller of Michael Miller Fabrics.  It was a fun and so very interesting evening, but nothing could top the excitement when Kathy handed out color cards of Michael Miller’s dreamy new Cotton Couture solids to everyone.  It was definitely an Oprah handing-out-keys-to-new-cars moment.  A color card for you, and a color card for you

We also learned that Michale Miller Fabrics chose our guild to participate in a block challenge, and the winning blocks would be made into a quilt and displayed in the Michael Miller booth at Quilt Market (next week!).  Oh boy, I don’t think Kathy knew what she got herself into. I don’t know how she is going to pick winning blocks - when they are ALL winning blocks.  HOLY SQUIRREL NUTS, they’re all so amazing!  Edited in: the selected blocks and quilt.

I love how the blocks look against the white brick wall.

This is my block. I had no idea what to do or what direction to go in… so I went in all directions. I don’t know how I feel about it, kinda meh, but it was fun to drive to the fork in the road and take all the roads at once.
Portland Modern Quilt Guild - Michael Miller Cotton Couture Modern Block Challenge

I fell in instant love with the new Cotton Couture.  The colors are super saturated eye candy, and the fabric feels like little heavenly clouds of cotton that angels farted out. Poof.  So much for any hope of me becoming a Michael Miller copywriter. But seriously, Cotton Couture is so dreamy, and now that I’ve sewn with it - it feels like I’ve flown first class, and I can never go back to coach.

I harvested all my leftover scraps, tiny little flakes of cotton happiness just begging me (in a Kool-aid pitcher man voice) to be used.  In a granny kind of way.  Fiber filled Gran Flakes.  Oh yeah.
Gran Flakes

I’m seeing the grannies all over, and just loving seeing them. I know there are different methods being used, but I have a thing about bias edges - so I made my sides with 3″ quarter-squares and 2″ half-squares for the corners.  The center squares were cut at 1½”.  It’s a little over-kill on the sides and corners, but I like having room to square-up and trim.  Kinda like wearing an elastic waist-band skirt when going to the Cheesecake Factory for dinner.
Gran Flakes

Simple sashing and auditioning floss. Mmmm, any excuse to use Cosmo.
Gran Flakes

Some hand quilting.
Gran Flakes

Two things I love doing - hand quilting and big stitch embroidery quilting.  Edited in:  I use two stands of Cosmo floss and a Piecemaker embroidery needle. Even though an embroidery needle feels like a quilting needle from Land of The Giants, I do use the same rocking method to quilt as if it’s thread. It just somehow works.
Gran Flakes

Gran Flakes

I love quilting so much, that I get a little sad when I’m just about to finish a quilt.
Gran Flakes

Bam. Snuck in some Happy Mochi Yum Yum, and I love that it does not even come close to matching or go together.

This is not a cry for help

Monday, April 9th, 2012

This is not a cry for help. I repeat, this is not a cry for help. At least not for now at this very moment.

Starting back when Lori and I did our iPhone sew-along (Lori’s, mine) with Ayumi’s Lunch bag (purse) pattern, I have not been able to stop making them or stop thinking about making them.   I see fabric and all I want to do it harvest a small collection that would make for a cute lunch bag (or as I lovingly call them now:  Ayumi Purses).

This last Saturday I made two more.  I couldn’t decide which Suzy Ultman Appleville brown or Appleville white to use, so I made both.  BOTH!  Paired with some of Tula’s Prince Charming and Robert Kaufman’s “ring” fabric - it would have been criminal not to make both.
Ayumi's lunch bag pattern
It was a sewing-day with the Portland Modern Quilt Guild, and if I hadn’t spent so much time proclaiming (proclaiming = When Harry Met Sally deli scene) how cute the pattern and the fabrics were together, I might have even been able to crank out an additional bag.  That’s Susan waving hi - she’s so dang squeezably cute! And that unusual bright light emanating from the window in the top right of the photo - that’s sunshine people. Sun. Shine.  Dispelling all rumors that Oregonian’s are Mole People. Fact.
Ayumi lunch bags

I’m playing with making the lunch bag bigger, so I decided to go all Scarlett O’Hara ish and use the (Darlene Zimmerman Mama’s Kitchen) fabric that was once my sewing room’s closet curtains at my previous house.
Vroom... vrooooom
I love how Lecien’s red check from their Color Basic’s collection goes with Darlene’s fabric! Cutting and sewing next up (and fingers crossed my upsizing hacks work out).
Mama's Kitchen + Lecien Color Basic (red check)

As soon as I got wind that Michael Miller flipped the switch on the way-back time machine and was bringing back Patty’s Andalucia  - I flew over to the Fat Quarter Shop and ordered me some of the Andalucia II.
Andalucia II by Patty Young

It’s not an addiction if everybody joins in with me, right? And now on to the next harvesting of lunch bag fabrics… what ever they may be… re-Flea Market Fancy…

Patio quilt aka Taking Turns quilt

Saturday, March 17th, 2012

Edited in 13 Feb 2013:
The pattern Patio (known as Taking Turns in the 2012 Quilts & More issue) is available in my PDF pattern shop!

ORIGINAL POST, March 17, 2012:

Whoo whoo - I’ve got another quilt pattern in Quilts and More!   Ok, so the Spring 2012 issue has been out for a while - but I do like to wait until I actually see the issue on the newsstand before I blog about it.  And here in teenie little Astoria, magazines and mail apparently arrive by pony. If I can find an issue here, I know it’ll be available everywhere and it’s safe to blog about it.
Quilts and More - Spring 2012

In this Quilts and More issue, is a special “All About White” section devoted to quilts made with prints and white fabric.  Three quilts, four designers.  Oh yeah, the best part of seeing another one of my patterns published by Quilts and More (which is a thrill on it’s own) - was seeing who else was featured in the All About White feature: Aneela with her Picnic Play quilt, and Team Amazing’s Kate and Sherri with their Double the Fun quilt, and my quilt Taking Turns.  Also in the issue is some more project sweetness by more sweeties - Camille, Joanna and Vanessa. BAM, what an issue!

My Taking Turns quilt:

A very fat quarter friendly quilt that’s also large scale fabric friendly.  Sometimes I just cringe cutting into fabric, and this pattern is my little way alleviating some of the shear fear I’m constantly stricken with.

Sew Modern has made up a Happy Mochi Yum Yum Taking Turns kit for sale (gotta hurry, I hear they’re almost sold out!), and the BEST FREAKING PART is that you get to DIY your background color from Sew Modern’s complete collection of Robert Kaufman Kona’s.  This is like going to a U-pick orchard - but better because it’s quilty and you won’t get mud on your shoes or fall off a rickety ladder.  I gasped when I saw Lauren’s (Sew Modern’s awesome momma) blog with the shop sample.  I smiled so hard my face hurt.  Talk about an OMG moment.  All the photos MUST be seen.  Go look and then come back.  I’ll wait for you.

Here’s a pic I took of my quilt. Sucky photo, so I played around and made it even suckier. Sucky, but it was fun to play around with the settings in iPhoto. And this is why I don’t get stuff done.

I played around with my pattern, and downsized the measurements by half and made a little baby quilt for a cute little Turtle.
Taking Turns quilt

The other night at guild, Elsa showed a baby version she made of it, too. A super thrill for me, especially since she made it in Aneela’s fabric.

Also at guild, and this has nothing to do with anything - but look how cute Megan and I were sitting next to each other.
Chuckie's in love

I’m not even going to pretend I’m not begging, so if anyone makes the Taking Turns pattern or uses it to insire their own version like Elsa did - I’d love for (“I’d love for” is code for “I’m begging for”) anyone’s photos to be added to my Happy Zombie HQ flickr group.
