Where's your "Hidden Beach?"

Home from a creative week in Sisters, Oregon at the oldest (30+ years) and the biggest outdoor quilt festival in the world. The week started with Quilters Affair and 5 days full of classes from 30 teachers from all over the world. Every quilting technique imaginable was represented from the Modern Quilt movement to tradition hand quilting. Truly something for everyone. Below are pictures from my classes. I taught Hibiscus as a 2 day class, Bird of Paradise (1 day) and my new pattern, Hidden Beach (2 days), which was a hit. Look at the beautiful hand-dyed fabrics this student made before she came to class. This is Tim with his beautiful flower. When the class is making a big mess you know they are in the zone. In the Hidden Beach class I tried something new. No paint by numbers this time. It was all improvisational free cutting to make this beachscape. I was a little concerned about changing my teaching style without the students knowing what they were getting into but the students loved it. This technique gave them more creative freedom and they embraced it. We used a lot of free cutting with the rotary cutter which is the technique I used for the water in my Monterey and beach quilts. Monterey We started with the beach, water, and sky for the first layer. Then we made the rolling hill and path. Then they did the tree layer. About half of the class did there own interpretation of there Hidden Beach or lake or river. It was so exciting. Candi finishing her beach. This is one of the hazards of the job: fabric sticking in places you don't want. Isn't this wonderful? She brought a picture for inspiration. She is now adding her trees. This student is making cypress trees at her beach. Here they are. Wonderful interpretation of cypress trees. Best part is that the NEW Steam A Seam 2 arrived in time for me to bring to Sisters for these classes. It is new and improved and I think you are going to like it. I haven't sewn through it yet but I will blog about that in a few weeks. Here she added more rocks and dirt showing on the rolling hill. Love it! Now layer 3, the limbs of the trees. I told them to add a punch of color as you make your trees. All right! Her Hidden Beach is a beautiful lake in Oregon. This was so much fun and I can't wait to teach Hidden Beach again! This is my class sample.

Sew Susan Sew

The quilting production slowed a bit in 2013 due to travels, family changes and shoulder surgery. But I did manage to find a bit of time to complete a few projects. Anna's Bed Quilt - Completed Spring 2103 While we were in Sisters during Christmas 2012 Anna chose this Valori Wells quilt pattern and fabric for a double bed quilt. The quilt provided a good opportunity for me to get some more practice with free motion quilting. Connie's One Block Wonder Table Runner - Spring 2013 My sister-in-law Connie had created a table runner using the One Block Wonder technique and asked me to do the quilting. For a novice quilter, Connie did a great job on the piecing and arranging of the hexagon blocks for the final design. I like the way the quilting shows on the more plain areas of the piece. Using leftover equilateral triangles, Connie sewed matching triangles into strips and then pieced the strips together for the backing. Too bad I didn't get a photo of the overall backing design. Ava Hughes Baby Quilt - September 2013 Ava's quilt was the first chevron quilt I made. The colors were inspired by some hedgehog fabric I saw at Cool Cottons. The lighting was not right when I took the photo so the colors are dulled somewhat. For one of the chevron stripes I pieced the fabric to help unify the design. the back This detail shows a bit of the hedgehog fabric from Cool Cottons along with the flannel aqua elephant backing (also Cool Cottons) . The gray dog fabric was also used in the sleeping bags I made in 2012 for Ava's brothers, Brett and Davis. The label. This time I quilted an animal alphabet. Using animal outlines from different free online sources, I printed them out to the desired size and pinned them onto the quilt. Using the shapes as a template I quilted around each shape. A little constrictive but it did insure that I would be able to fit all 26 of the animals onto the quilt. After completing the quilting I thought it would be a good idea for Ava (and her two brothers) to have some way of helping them identify the various quilted animals (what is a zorilla anyway?). I created three coloring books for the kids utilizing the same animal outlines I used for the quilting. And here is little Ava catching a nap outdoors on her new blanket. Attended two workshops at The Stitchin' Post - September 2013 Journey to Inspired Quilting with Jean Wells Here's what I put together in the workshop. Hope to get it finished in Jan 2014 (quilted, backed and edged). I have an idea for another piece based on what I learned here. Susan Carlson workshop It was an interesting process - collage with fabric - and a great way to utilize all those itty bitty leftover scraps of fabric. Not sure just yet where I will go with this trout from here. It is looking very static. I need to spend some time thinking about a way to add movement to it (not easy when it looks like a stuffed and mounted fish). Maybe I should cut it apart and rearrange the pieces. Hmmm...... Anna's 24th Birthday Lap Quilt - December 2103 Anna liked Ava's quilt design and colors so much that I decided to make a lap quilt for her. New projects on tap for 2014: Hilde Morin January quilt workshop with friends Baby quilt for Roberto (grand-nephew #4 due in March) HS Graduation lap quilt for niece Amy

Making Blue Ridge Mountain Sunset

I thought I'd post a few pictures I took along the way making Blue Ridge Mtn. (This is the quilt they chose to be the cover of my book!) It has all my favorite colors and someday I'd like to make a large version of this quilt! How many 'somedays' are there do you think?! Especially for us quilters... we have more ideas than we have time. Well, here is my design, all in strips on my little portable design wall. From here, I sew all my strip segments together and then transfer them to a tear-away foundation. (I love Create-A-Pattern by Bosal Foam and Fiber, it comes off the bolt at 46 inches wide and is so handy for the type of quilts I make.) Ok, you might be wondering what you are seeing? Well... its kinda hard to explain... but sometimes I really don't sew all those angles from my strip segments together, I use glue. I'll admit it - I really don't like piecing all that much. (True confessions - from a quilter - can you believe it!?) I. Really. Don't. Like. Piecing.It takes too much time. I just glue down the background strip, glue the angle from the top strip closed and then glue the top strip on top of the bottom strip. Once all the strips are in place on the foundation, I just use monofilament thread and stitch them down. Piece of Cake. Because I use a tear-away foundation, all I have to do is fold and sew along grid lines that I drew on the foundation earlier. (Hmmm. I'll have to explain that in another post. Actually, I have a patent on this type of quilt top construction. I use it to make all my watercolor quilts too!) Anyway, here is the quilt top, now all I have to do is add the flowers and quilt it. And here is the finished quilt - Ta Da! Blue Ridge Mountain Sunset by Cathy Geier

Vestlandstreff at Voss

Life has been a whirlwind since I left my beautiful room with a view and travelled home from Voss. It was a great weekend. The journey up there was rather quick and half way there I realized I was totally orange. Orange jacket, orange scarf, orange purse, orange bag. In case you were wondering, I do love orange. I could have caught an earlier train from Bergen to Voss, but I’d rather spend a couple of hours with my fabulous niece who is a student there. I was admiring the station roof as I was waiting for her, the structure and lines would look nice in a quilt. This is what 30+kg luggage looks like. Oh man; heeeaavvvyyy. The weather was perfect and so was the view from the train. Not too cloudy, no wind and glorious fall colours just starting to pop. I stayed at Fleischer Hotel, one of the historic hotels, on the top floor facing the fjord. Being shuttled back and forth to the school where I was teaching, I never got around to getting a proper picture, so I borrowed this from their website. Fantastic, isn’t it! And with lots of traditional details everywhere. The ladies from Voss Quiltelag, who hosted the event, were ever so kind and fun and helpful and everything went smoothly. The classrooms were light and airy and everything was in order. Thank you ladies, for a great Vestlandstreff! The only little hiccup was that one of my students had forgotten the pedal and chord to her machine at home, but she was able to borrow a set from a sewing machine supplier. Phhhew. The Saturday class was “Mix and Match for Christmas” with 7 lovely and eager students. They all made wonderful Christmas projects and we had lots of fun. The Sunday “Med hodet på skrå” class was equally fun, but somewhat smaller with only two students. Fortunately they were great, so we had lots of fun, and they too both made wonderful projects. I knew it would be a small class up front (although not that small) so I had prepared another sample and kits that we got started on. The journey home on Sunday was mainly spent in company with some old and some new friends. It was really funny as we all pulled out our knitting projects on the train. Maybe it is possible to be all quilted out after all. My luggage was fortunately 10+kg lighter on the way back after unloading books and kits and handouts and whatnots, and I was very good buying only a teeny tiny bag of paper shapes for English paper piecing. Now I have just a few little details to put together, and I’ll be ready for my next adventure - travelling to Trondheim on Friday to teach the Lag på lag class. See you all later!

Fabric wave

There's an imminent new arrival in our extended family, so it's time for me to get working on another version of my baby beach scenes. Simon suggested I incorporate surfing since the father is a keen surfer. That was the starting point for my designing, anyway. I ended up with this row of (potentially surfable?!) waves which will go across the top of the reef/water section, and I started by piecing them. I divided the waves into organic shapes, much like those I used in the much larger Australian scene and space quilts, which I could then piece from different colour water fabrics. The first step was to trace these onto mid-weight non-woven interfacing and mark some registration points along the curved seams to help piece thems evenly, then cut the pieces apart. After carefully selecting the fabrics to use for each piece (colour, and a smooth gradation was the main consideration)I placed the interfacing patter piece directly on the fabric and drew around it with a air-erasable marker, adding the 1/4in seam allowance by eye as I went. I then added the registration marks and the piece number with a fine-tip permanent pen before cutting it out. I've saved all the interfacing pieces in case I want to do the waves again. Then I pinned all the pieces in place on my pattern and checked I was happy with my fabric choices. Then it was just a case of gradually sewing them all together, carefully easing the curves. The wave section is all done now and will be pieced to the top of the reef/water section once that's done (the bottom is straight-ish).

Vintage skiis / quilt pattern / landscape quilt pattern / skier / skis / winter quilt pattern

For the skier in your life, this 12”x16” art quilt pattern will give you all you need to make a unique art piece for your wall. There is a detailed tutorial with photos so a confident beginner could make this quilt and learn both fusible and freezer paper machine appliqué. As printed the piece is small but can be enlarged to any size. There is free motion quilting involved with this technique but you will just be outlining all the motifs so this is a good place for a beginner to practice those free motion skills. NOTE: because of all the photos I had to make 5 files because Etsy only allows files of less than 20 MB so when you get your links to download realize there are 5 files for this one pattern. Sorry it’s a pain I know but Etsy has their rules 🤔

Red and Green but not Christmas!! - Art Quilts by Sharon

A dear friend asked me to make a custom curved pieced quilt for her to match her decor. She wanted reds and greens. While the color wheel says red and green are complimentary, I had to confess to her that I couldn’t think of red and green without thinking of Christmas. So….time to expand my Read the full article...
