Quilted Rug Sewing At My House

IMG_0098Yes it was a day or two of sewing

Quilted Rug Sewing At My House”

after all I work in a place that sells lots of quilting fabric at  “The Quilts Store”

 The fun part of this is, we get some amazing teachers in from time to time..but let me tell you we have several of my colleges that are amazing teachers too.

One of the classes was this

  Quilted Rugs with Al Cote

Have a look at one of my earlier posts another great teacher. I would recommend either one of their classes for sure.

Yes I was working my shift but I had to see all the wonderful samples the students/customers where working on from time to time too. Smiles, just part of me interacting with the customers too…I believe this is my role in good customer service too.

So I picked up the some tips on how to make something like this RUG too. But since I was not in the class my sample may not be exactly as Al instructed it …but I am happy with the way it turned out. Though I wish it would rag more like the rag quilts do.

Really fun, though the cutting out of all the fabric was a bit “ahhhh” do I have to through all this fabric out to get to the 1st, 2nd, 3rd layer etc….I guess it will go in a bag for stuffing.

Great Big Tote Bags

File 2017-08-10, 5 53 56 PMIt seems as if I can’t stop sewing these kind of bags…

Started just with two and since then it has gone to several more.  Planing to bring several of them to a retirement home for their “Tuck Shop”.  All non profit organization ….

Smiles I have more fabric to make up lots more….

Modified them a little by not adding on the zipper closer and outer pocket. Using Canvas fabric and Faux sued.

Just really wan

ted a simple bag for this project. Pattern can be found on YouTube from “Debbie Shore” really love her tutorials.

For all the outer fabric I used canvas and the lining I have several great big roles of faux suede that gives it enough of a body. Did not use any stabilizer so easy simple sewing.

I thing these bags are great for getting just a view groceries, or take your knitting along to a friend.

Jelly Roll Bags

File 2017-04-12, 9 26 54 AMYes out of one Jelly Roll Fabric bundle I have sewn up 4 of these wonderful spring-summer take along bags.

Von einem Jelly Roll Fabric Bündel habe ich 4  wunderbaren Frühling-Sommer Taschen genäht 

Perfect for going to the beach, or just carry along your necessary items. Perhaps your project bag for your knitting or crocheting…you name it just a overall handy little bag to have.

I found this free pattern on Shabby Fabric.com I am in love with her tutorials on YouTub. Very clear instructions and easy to follow too.

Now the only problem I have is I love them all and can’t decide the one I will keep….

Eine ideale Tasche für zum Strand, oder auch nur so schenll zum Kaffe zu gehen und nur das Notwendigste  mit zu bringen. Ja natürlich auch eine perfect Projekttasche für das Stricken oder Häkeln …

Ich fand dieses kostenlose Muster bei “Shabby Fabric.com” So viele tolle YouTube Tutorials fand ich dort. Sehr klare Anweisungen und leicht zu folgen.

Nun habe ich ein problem…lach welche Tasche soll ich für mich selber behalten…..

Yehh ALL Quilted

2017-01-27-08-54-28As promised here is the picture of my fished

“Log Cabin Quilt”

All done in light, medium and dark Orange Cotton Fabric and light, medium and dark gray Cotton fabric.

See previous post on this Log Cabin Quilt here!

Love, Love, Love these colours!!!

For the back I used this black soft and heavy Sued Minky  fabric we have at the moment at The Quilt Store  Sooo soft and cuddly great for any winter!

I free motion quilted this Queen Size 90″x 91″on the HQ Fusion at the store too … It is amazing what all the longarm machines can do when you program the patterns into them and have IT do the quilting. However, I myself like to work it in free motion so it is truly all done by my hands….well just not “hand sewn” I know ….smiles enjoy  ahh and as for the binding. That is my absolute favourite last thing on the Quilt …Really like sewing binding on…just like my grandmother was sewing the napkins for soooo many, many decades.2016-12-30-17-33-29

And if you really like this queen size quilt and like to buy it from me….just send me a note!

Log Cabin Quilt

file-2016-11-07-6-44-49-pmFinally I decided to piece this Log Cabin quilt together. I have had this fabric for over two years in my stash….sounds familiar to You?  The pattern is called “Fields of Furrows” All together 36 blocks in 10 hours …huwww. Done.

Then sewing it all into one big Queen size piece by piece. Smiles, it would not go without a hickup….I had it all placed correct and still was able to sew one strip wrong so the howl section looked off. Undo my stitching and back together the right way…in no time.

Now just have to get the batting backing and I have lots of fabric left so may even do something fun for the backing with all that extra fabric instead of buying more fabric. then the Quilting…..chat soon again. Have a great week

 file-2016-11-07-6-44-18-pmEntlich entschloss  ich mich, diese Blockhauskabine Quilt zusammenzusetzen. Hatte den Stoff schon bals zwei Jahre in meinem Kasten, doch dass kennt Ihr sicher auch…. Das Muster heißt “Fields of Furrows”. Ganze 36 Blöcke in 10 Stunden … huwww. Erledigt.

Dann nähte ich  alle in einem großen Queen-Size-Stück für Stück. Lächelt, es geht ja nicht ohne ein hickup …. Ich hatte alle korrekt platziert und doch kam es dazu dass ich tatsächlich immer noch einen Streifen falsch zusammen nähte. So hiess es auftrennen und wieder richtig zusammen Nähen  … in kürzester Zeit.

Jetzt muss ich nur die Batting kaufen. Für die Rückseite da binn ich noch nicht sicher da ich noch viel Stoff vor habe. Vielleicht mach ich damit noch die Rückseite.. mal sehen es muss ja nicht sein das ih noch mehr Stoff kaufe dazu. Dann die Quilting ….. bald wieder chatten. Wünsche Euch allen eine großartige Woche…

 

 

 

Sewn Zentangle Portrait

ZENTANGLE SELF PORTRAIT

A Portrait of mine all done on my sewing machine. Wow this took 12 hours to finish and look at this. Cool I think.

file-2016-09-13-4-30-12-pm

Our class teacher Ana Paula Brasil is really fantastic and with so much spunk.  However I was not so sure about drawing my face or anyones face for that matter.  Really don’t like drawing faces. Rather landscapes, mountains or sit by a pond peaceful quiet places you know…. Faces and people are not quiet. I know that is just what I think…file-2016-09-14-9-25-11-am

 

 

This next part though is AMAZING! You get to draw with your sewing machine and create a picture all by filling in the blank spots…..Really love this part of the project, I could do this all over again.  Now what to do with this is the big question. Perhaps I use it as a panel for a quilt.

Ana Paula Brasil  holding the drawing, where I have the drawing on fabric that I am working on. A good five hours to this point. With Ana explaining the idea on how we should look at drawing this kind of cartoon portrait.

 

Ein Portrait von mir, alles mit meine Nähmaschine genäht. Wow ganze 12 Stunden war ich dabei, dieses zu beenden.

Unsere lehrerin Ana Paula Brasil ist wirklich fantastisch und mit so viel Mumm. Allerdings war es mir nicht  so drum mein Gesicht von einem Bild zu zeichnen.  Paste mir gar nicht!  Zeichne viel lieber  Landschaften, Berg oder sitz bei einem Teich dort wo es ruhige ist.  Menschen und Gesichter sind nicht ruhig. Na ja so denke ich.

Dieser nächste Teil ist aber echt Toll! Jetzt darf ich mit der Nähmaschine alle lehre Teile ausfüllen und ein Bild herstellen!  ….. wirklich lieben diesen Teil des Projekts.  Fertig! ganze 12 stunden brauchte das…so was soll ich damit machen, ist die große Frage. Vielleicht benutze ich es als eine Teile für eine Steppdecke….
