Casting on with Tinsel yarn. Some people have asked me what it’s like to knit with Tinsel yarn, so here’s a video of how lovely it is to use. I’ve shown how I cast on and knit with it. This is the cast on video. The knitting patterns for this item and others are included as extras in my romantic fiction book, The Christmas Knitting Bee. http://amzn.to/2jDDj8t My Amazon Author page - (link in profile). #knitting #knit #yarn #tinsel #sewing #handquilting #embroidery #handembroidery #quiltersofinstagram #sewersofinstagram #inspiredbynature #Christmas

This is my Spring Sampler Quilt as it stood, as of yesterday, and the handquilting I ve already done.
#springsamplerquilt #quilts #samplerquilt #handquilting Begun sometime early this year, I would guess, I ve been working on it, on and off all year. I used it as a learning sampler, learning new blocks and quilting techniques with every block. The central block, the house is from... #homesweethome book by #barbadams and #almaallen A.K.A #blackbirddesigns, published by #kansascitystar #quilts It is the book that inspired me to finally learn to quilt and sew back in 2013. The block is handappliquéd and I thought was ideal for this quilt, to pull together the theme. It is one of my final blocks, due to its complexity and the hand sewing/appliqué. Also in this quilt are the kettle, friendship stars, spools and my favorite of course, the mugs, all from Lori Holt s famous books, which are excellent for perhaps Intermediate level quilters, though her instructions are so easy to follow, I m sure beginner quilters could tackle some of her quilts/ blocks too...Building up from complexity as they go. #quiltyfun and #farmgirlvintage I absolutely love #loriholt, her blog, her books, her blocks and her quilts, along with everyone else that is! The three bottom Dutch Rose Blocks with the Sawtooth Star in them are from an online database and probably were the original inspiration for the colorway and my fabric choices. As they were UFO s. That pattern I got from an online database... via my pinterest account... The layout is my design and I tried to put a lot of white space in it...for design and quilting purposes. The fabrics are all scraps or fat quarters from my stash, collected over the years.

Happy Fridayyy! 😀😀 Are you looking to get your sewjo on this weekend? @suzyquilts #sewmojo minis are THE most fun projects to do just that! Plus, she’s got a new @becraftsy class to help walk you through the process 💃 I’d been holding onto a @karenlewistextiles bundle I purchased a super long time ago just waiting for the right project to cut into them. So happy I busted them out for my #mojominiquilts 😊 . #suzyquiltspattern #modernimprov #handquilting #shannonfraserdesigns #karenlewis #workingmystashoff
