NOMINATE YOUR FAVORITE BLOGGER

I received this very kind note yesterday:

Lori, just thought I should let you know that I nominated you for the Best Overall Blogger Award through National Quilting Circle.  You can download a badge which might encourage your readers/followers to continue to nominate and then vote for you.

I did this because you are the only Blog that I follow regularly and the only one I continue to recommend to friends. Who by the way, also continue to follow you.

I have also learned more from you about FMQ then any other Blogger, or class I’ve taken. Good Luck!

So I’ve added the badge in my sidebar, and I thought we would give it a whirl!

In other news…

The Doodle Lessons seem to be going very well,  but most of the comments from yesterday’s assignment were about the quilt underneath the notebook!

I made a king sized version of this log cabin quilt (and quilted it on my BERNINA 820) a couple of years ago.  The table runner was made with orphan blocks to test threads and motif ideas.

Log Cabin, Hand dye quiltI used hand dyed fabrics-which gives it the incomparable color richness.

Each log is cut 1″, so the final dimension is 1/2″.  The center square is cut 2-1/2 inches.

I used Aurifil 30 wt cotton on top and 50 wt cotton in the bobbin to quilt it and wool batting (my favorite). It took less time to quilt than it did to figure out how to quilt it.  The king version hung in my sewing room for months because I was afraid to ruin it.  (Sound familiar?)  I tried several motif samples on this table runner and choose the one on the ends.

I liked how it created movement.

And the smaller one makes an occasional appearance on my kitchen table.

I love this happy, colorful quilt in my bedroom…

Free Motion Quilting Video-The Cabin in the Woods

Good Morning, Quilters!

Just a quick hello this morning to let you know that I have a tutorial at BERNINA’s WeAllSew blog.

The tutorial is for this Cabin in the Woods motif which would look fabulous on the border of a quilt, the edge of a table runner or even on a tea towel!

It’s fast and easy and it includes a VIDEO of me stitching away!

Halloween Projects and Quilts

 

Pumpkin Pin Cushion Tutorial

Good Morning, Quilters!

Halloween is just around the corner–but there’s still time to make ourselves a sewing treat!

Try the Pumpkin Pin Cushion HERE (photo above)

Or make the long Pin Pillow–handy when you pre-thread several needles.  The extra-long shape prevents the tails from tangling!  Read about it HERE and find a tutorial HERE

One of my favorite projects: the elegant velvet pumpkins.  They look great for Halloween and even better as a Thanksgiving decoration!Velvet pumpkins tutorial, Lori Kennedy
It’s fun to have a few Halloween pillows, too…
