Bella Skill Builder…Block 3

Pineapples anyone???

This month we are on Block 3  in the Bella Skill Builder quilt along hosted by Fat Quarter Shop!

This month is the Pineapple Block!

Block 3

I’m not gonna lie…this was a tricky block!

You will use a specialty ruler for this one….

CGRJAW3

Creative Grids Pineapple Trim Tool

Tips…

The key is to make sure you read the instructions thoroughly and use the ruler properly!

I got a little ahead of myself and just kept cutting which = lots of seam ripping.  Go step by step and you should do just fine.

Finger press along the way. I ironed only at the end of each block because there is a lot of seams and it can get wonky fast.

I also used a scant quarter inch seam when stitching these and the blocks came out the perfect size!

Hope you guys are enjoying this quilt… This block definitely pushed me out of the box a little and I did a block I never have before. Yay for quilty me!

Planning for quilty success! 2017

Quilt Planning

We have all heard this quote…. “Failing to plan is planning to fail.” by Winston Churchill or maybe this one by Benjamin Franklin…”By failing to prepare you are preparing to fail.”.

This month I’ve been doing a lot of planning for my new year! Focusing on what I need to get done and new challenges I want to embrace.

You may have seen some awesome quilty planners floating around on the the interwebs…..

like this one>>>

The Quilter's PlannerThe Quilter’s Planner by Stephanie Palmer

Can I just say this planner is AWESOME looking! ….. but alas, I am trying to not buy every little thing my quilty heart desires in 2017.  But if you can… get you one HERE

So here is what I came up with for myself…. a little journal I received as a gift! Added my own little quilty quote…. because “Quilty dreams do come true💜.”

Quilt Planning

I’m gonna walk you through my planning process and maybe it will help you too! 

Quilt Planning

•First task…. Assess what is happening! 

Quilt Planning

Woah Paula!!!!

FOURTEEN unquilted tops… gotta look those tops in the face, take some control! 

P.s…. don’t be ashamed of unfinished projects.

We are makers! And makers gonna make quilty peeps:)

Next stop on the unfinished train….

•Quilts or projects that are started but haven’t made it to the finished top phase. 

I call this the To Be Pieced section….

Ok…. so I have a few of these also, no biggie! 

Quilt Planning

A second part of this I call… my In Progress section.

These are quilts that are basted and in the mid-quilting phase.

Hey….. pat on the back! These are almost there.

Quilt Planning

• New Projects.

What do I want to do that is new and exciting in 2017…

Now…

You might be thinking….PAULA!

Are any new projects really necessary? 

I  say YES! 

Quilt Planning

We have to keep growing as quilters and letting our creative side have fun!

So I made a list of some projects I want to push myself to squeeze in.

Quilt Planning

Last….but not least….

•Add a page of Goals and Progress for each month! 

This lets me see what I’ve accomplished. It’s easy to get overwhelmed!!!

But we must remember…. Quilting is fun! It’s your world. Do what makes you happy 😊 

My goal is to finish something unfinished each month and enjoy something new! 

January is looking good so far…

•One finished Quilt!

•One finished top!

•And a start on a quilt I’ve dreamed of making as long as I can remember. 

My quilty heart is happy💜

I hope you guys give yourselves a break, BE SASSY and continue you to do what you love!

Layer Cake Pop

 

 Get Quilt Kit HERE

They did their quilt kit in Spectrum by V and Co.

Such a fun fabric line!

Here is my version of this quilt….

I just love these little stars that this pattern makes! Cute.

I used a Cotton and Steel layer cake and made my own jelly roll out of a cream dot background fabric. The cream color worked really well with this line.

It was a fun pattern and a great way to use up some of those layer cakes we have piling up!!!!

No Bake Jolly Bar Quilt – Easy and Free Pattern!

No Bake Jolly Bar Blog Hop!

jollybar1

Hey there guys! Today I am a stop on the No Bake Jolly Bar Blog Hop hosted by Fat Quarter Shop.

Fat Quarter Shop has a fun, fast and fabulous FREE quilt pattern to share with you…

They call it the No Bake Jolly Bar….

Here is the FREE PATTERN!

For my quilt I used a white layer cake and two jolly bars in “the Boat house” by Sweetwater for MODA fabrics.

In case you don’t know what a jolly bar is…..it is basically a layer cake cut in half, 5″ x 10″ rectangles. Super fun and easy for making a quilt.

Let me tell you…. this quilt came together lickety-split! One day I made all the blocks and the next I put them all together. This is a nice size quilt too… It finishes at 63.5″ x 81.5″, so it will make a nice size quilt to use as a gift for Christmas. Can’t wait to get it quilted up!
