RE BLOG: Entering a Juried Quilt Show

Entering a Juried Quilt Show


Entering quilt shows has been a hot topic on the internet on several blogs, e-magazines and pod casts. I have been following the discussion because I had been considering entering the AQS QUILT SHOW in Grand Rapids this summer ( or 2013 or 2014.) What better opportunity then to enter one of the big shows in my home state. I have investigated what standards the quilts are judge upon and want to take the plunge. To that end here is the information I have discovered for my guild sisters who might also want to enter one of the larger quilt shows.

( Deadline for entry is April 30, 2012) Below I have posted links the AQS show in Grand Rapids. Be sure to register as soon as possible in order to get your entry instructions.)

Important information:
Be sure to observe all deadlines. Early entries are permissible and encouraged. Quilts submitted after the deadlines are dismissed out of hand, regardless of how beautiful your quilt is. Be sure to follow any instructions about submission for a particular category or group. Read the rules and regulations carefully and follow them.

Follow the rules for the type of photographs required. For the national quilt shows a professional photograph might be desirable. MOST quilt shows will not accept photographs that have been edited in any manner. Following the directions be prepared to submit a head on shot of yourself, a picture of the entire quilt, details of the quilting and close ups of the important details of the quilt. Most photographs are to be submitted in digital format ( CD) but some places still require slides. You must submit the photographs in the format they request.

The rules for the quilt show are set by the hosting organization and will change from show to show. The national shows usually have certified judges, judges who will judge the quilt based on predetermined standards. Judges can be trained and certified by the National Quilting Association, or they can be trained through experience. They all adhere to similar standards of judging, although final results will be varied based on the individuals. There are several method of tallying the points for judging the quilt and the hosting organization will determine what criteria is used. It is usually spelled out in the quilt entry form. Quilts are judged individually then against other quilts in their category and classifications. Best of show quilts are the most perfect quilts with the best workmanship and design elements in the show.

What is important to remember is that having your quilts judged is to improve your techniques for the next quilt, to learn from the judge’s comments. Do not take comments personally but use them as a springboard for improving your workmanship.

What criteria are used for JUDGING A QUILT?
Design / Technique/ Workmanship / Presentation

Presentation:
In her podcast Annie Smith stresses the importance of having your quilt “SHOW READY”. Many beautiful quilts have been knocked out of completion because of pet hair, lint, stains, and odors. Be sure all threads are buried and none are left dangling from construction. All marking should be removed. BE SURE YOUR QUILT IS IMPECCABLY CLEAN.

WORKMANSHIP:
Technique:
For the most part like quilts are judged against each other in their respective categories. It is important to read the rules carefully and enter your quilt in the correct category. What-ever technique you chose it should the best workmanship that you can achieve. Again no dangling threads, applique should be well stitched with invisible stitches. Pieced blocks should have points not cut off or into the seam allowance.

Pay attention to the basics of construction and do the absolute best that you can.

Over all look of the quilt and the impact it has on viewers is important.

Does it hang straight? Are the edges straight and plumb?

Does the quilt lie flat?

DO the borders wave?

Precision of seam allowance is examined.

Are points cut off are they lost into seam allowance?

Threads not buried but hanging off the quilt

Quilting details, regardless of what type of quilting (Hand, domestic or long-arm.) Is it consistent type of quilting being used. Are the stitches even, standard in size and shape? Was the quilting by an individual, a group or professional long arm quilter. (Credit must be given to whoever did the quilting.)

Hand quilting (stitches even size on front and back of quilt, starts and stops not visible, quilt marking lines not visible.)

Machine Quilting (domestic or long armed) is examined for correct tension, thread dots on back of quilt. They look for the starts and stops and the expertise of the back tracts. Thread nests are especially frowned upon.

Does the stitch in the ditch come out of the ditch? More and more shows are judging the quilting against the same type of quilts. (Hand against hand, domestic against domestic and long arm against long arm.) The judges realize different skill sets are required for the different types of quilting.

The binding is especially important. Are the thread hanging, missed stitches gaps in the stitching? Are there any parts where the binding is empty or weak? Are the corners sewn closed on top and bottom? Is the size of the binding uniform; is there any pulling to the back to cover the stitches attaching the binding? Stitches that attach the binding to the quilt should not be seen, but covered by the binding. No batting should be poking through.


DESIGN ELEMENT OF JUDGING:

• Visual impact of design – The quilt must be visible across the room! It needs to be eye-catching
• Originality and creativity
• Color and value
• Balance and integration of design (scale, relationship and arrangement of quilt components including borders)
• Overall appearance (quilt is clean, free of odor, and hangs squarely)
• General construction – workmanship (piecing, applique, borders even)
• Level of difficulty
• Special techniques (if applicable)
• Machine quilting (stitches of even length, no tension problems – Bobbin thread should not show on top and top thread should not show on back. Starts and stops not visible.)
• Quilting design appropriate to quilt top, density of quilting consistent
• Finishing (binding applied securely, evenly and accurately, square corners – no dog ears)

Art Quilts are judged on their merits …

There are more shows being established just for the art quilts. The impact of the design, the artistic expression, composition and all the rules of art are most important for these quilts. That said, technique is still considered to be important part of the judging of these quilts.

Embellishments adhered correctly and are secure

Subjects not taken into consideration and judges try not to allow their own biases and preferences sway them.

Creativity

Color

Harmonious design

Technical skills are judged

Quilt Judging

RE- BLOG: Why commentators do not comment . . .

Why commentators do not comment:

If you listen on an i-pod while doing other things…… you mean to comment but do not get on the computer till a later time and by that time you have forgotten what your WITTY, INSIGHTFUL COMMENT WAS … so you skip commenting altogether.

You are driving in your car listening …carrying on a conversation with the podcast. When it comes time you can comment you have had your say, won the argument and are willing to leave bygones be bygones and go on to something else.

If YOU are listening on your computer while you quilt… the quilt takes a turn for the worst when you are listening to the podcast and requires your full attention.

You are listening to the podcast in the darkness of the night (Isn’t insomnia a wonderful thing!) and after you comment you read what you wrote and it makes no sense so you erase it and go back to sleep.

A new podcast is released so you think you have lost the moment and decide you will post on the new podcast instead. Then you do not get around to it for all the above reasons…. and it all starts over again.

THAT IS OKAY WE UNDERSTAND….

 

Happy Quilting

More Machine Quilting pictures

New York Beauty – Domestic Machine Quilting~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

I should explain that I do crop and edit the pictures to make them easier to view. I do not color or change any significant aspects of the pictures, but I frequently paint out a messy background. When I am able I note if the quilt is hand or machine quilted on domestic machine or a long arm. I do not always have the information available and then it is up to the viewer to decide for themselves. The purpose of these photos are to highlight various quilting technique I am trying to train my eye to explore the differences between the various techniques.
I am also trying to use other quilting techniques in my own quilting. Our quilt guild is having an art quilt challenge. Members are suppose to make an art quilt based on their idea of what makes an art quilt. The only rule is the project has to be larger than 15×15 inches or 225 square inches. Any shape size larger is okay. I will be posting my efforts as I go along. I am planning to work on this project almost exclusively until January.

MY favorite quilt block … BRAVE WORLD #1265

BRAVE NEW WORLD … Fons and Porter
Brown World ….. Nancy Cabot

……    https://nonniequiltingdreams.wordpress.com/2012/12/09/1904/ LINK to TIPS and TRICKS FOR BRAVE WORLD BLOCK

 

 

 

 

 

 

 
As identified in Barbara Brackman’s book. All block illustrations are from ELECTRIC QUILT BLOCK BASE.
I have first saw this block on Fons and Porter’s Love of Quilting PBS TV show. ( I think season 500.) I have made several quilts using this block. I think I like it because it can be set in so many different lay-out. Even using the same blocks ( I make tons of them with left over fabrics and various white on white fabrics as background. ) I find by making these blocks it lets me make baby quilts quickly.

I usually make the baby quilts scrappy.  I usually make 4 inch blocks.  I have often used  novelty fabrics that I have fussy cut as the square.  This makes the blocks directional so you have to pre- plan the quilt using a design wall.

 

 

I am posting the instructions and measurements for this patch on line because I had lost the original file ( computer crash) and just recently found a print-out so I am recreating it here. This patch is the basis for many blocks and quilts depending upon the orientation and placement of the blocks.  By posting the patch instructions here I am less likely to lose the file again. This also allows my blog readers to use the information to make their own blocks. I will tell you I am not good at formatting on this web page so in the future I will try making a pdf file, but first I have to buy a pdf ADOBE writer.  Adobe pdf lets you put tables into the file.  I think will make my instructions easier to understand.  They will also be briefer as they will be instructions with no detailed explanations of the blog post.

FOUR INCH (finished) PATCHES
Fabrics: For most quilts I pick background fabric usually light colored ( I am partial to scrappy white on white fabrics) and I like mixed scraps of medium to dark colors. Placement of the lights and darks go a long way to define the look and style of the quilt.

blue hsq-tri

 

Cut squares of 4 – 7/8th (5) inches on the diagonal to make two half square triangles.

( CONFESSION TIME: I usually make my squares larger, to the full inch measurement. I then square the block down after assembly. This is easier and more accurate for me….. I belong to the make it big and square it up club. This patch would be 5 inches in size then cut in half. )

bg- hsq-tri

From the background fabric, cut square patch 2-7/8th ( 3) inches in half on the diagonal. These patches are then sewn to make a triangular unit on a 2.5 inch square.

 

* * * * * * * * *

 

 

3 inch square

 

 

 

 

   * * * * * *

 

 

* * *  * *   sq HALF TRI

 

 

The new triangle patch is then sewn to the 4-7/8th (5) inch triangle to make the BRAVE WORLD UNIT. . . .  Once the patches are sewn together press the seams to the path of least resistance …. toward the large triangle.  Square up to 4.5 inch unit. I like doing this after my patch is pressed. (I usually use starch.)

When you have enough of the units make a quilt out of them.

 

Quilt blocks needed:

Baby quilts 60in x 60in = 150 to 200 depending on size of baby quilt
Twin size quilts 70 x98 inches = approximately 408 blocks
Full size quilt 82x 98 inches = 480 blocks
Queen size quilt 98 x98 = 625 blocks (25 across & 25 down)

Measurements for other size blocks: 

ALWAYS, ALWAYS make a trial block to check my measurements … 
I have been known to be wrong and I do not do math.



FINISHED block size …………………… 4inch
Unfinished block size …………………….. 4.5 Inches
Large triangles (medium to dark fabrics ) …………………4-7/8th (5 inches)
Squares (medium to dark fabrics) ………………………….2.5  inches
Small triangles ( background fabrics > light) ………………. 2-7/8th (3inches)
****** ****************************************

FINISHED block size …………………… 5 inch
Unfinished block size …………………….. 5.5 inches
Large triangles (medium to dark fabrics ) …………………5-7/8th (6 inches)
Squares (medium to dark fabrics) ………………………….3 inches
Small triangles ( background fabrics > light) ……………….  3.5inches 


Divided in half to get the triangle big enough… no I do not do math.

****** ****************************************
FINISHED block size ……………….6 inches
Unfinished block size ………………. 6.5 inches
Large triangles (medium to dark fabrics ) ………………… 6-7/8th ( 7inches)
Squares (medium to dark fabrics) …………………………. 3.5 inches
Small triangles ( background fabrics > light) ……………. 3-7/8th(4inches)
****** ****************************************
FINISHED block size ………………………….. 8 inches
Unfinished block size ……………………….. 8.5 inches
Large triangles (medium to dark fabrics ) …………. 8-7/8th ( 9 inches)
Squares (medium to dark fabrics) ………………….. 4.5 inches
Small triangles ( background fabrics > light) ……………….. 4-7/8th ( 5 inches)
****** ****************************************

Let me know what you think of the instructions as I want to improve them.   I am posting the layouts I have used in the past.  I do not have the actual  pictures as I lost them in my last computer crash a couple of years ago.  These are just some of the layouts are available.  I used several books with layouts of quilts that have strong light – dark components to plan some of these quilts.  Check your books for log cabin block layouts.  I just have fun playing with the blocks.

Toginet …. Pat Sloan: American PATCHWORK and Quilting

http://toginet.com/shows/americanpatchworkandquiltingradio 

PAT SLOAN’S Creative Talk Radio BLOG

http://www.creativetalknetwork.com/

I picked up a copy of the COLOR ISSUE of AMERICAN PATCHWORKS and QUILTING.  It is one of the few magazines I actually pay for full price.   Most of the magazines I get are from quilt shows and guild meetings where they are donated and sold for a very reduced price.   I make sure to save this magazine in it entirety in in with my books of color theory. If you read my blog before you are aware of the rants I go into when the available magazines do stupid marketing. If not check back in my blog over the last couple of years.

I always enjoy WEEKS RINGLE’s Stash RX (THERAPY)  She teaches the magazine readers different ways of looking at their stash fabric to actually use their stash in different ways to make more exciting quilts.  I always learn a lot from this article and the series of quilt project they use where they actually apply the lessons and principles taught.  I also like how they frequently have multiple colorways of the same quilt pattern.

This last week the editors of AMERICAN PATCHWORK and QUILTING  recorded a podcast and published it on Pat Sloan’s podcast station. They go into detail on many of the quilts in the magazine and how they enjoyed making the project. I found I really enjoyed thumbing through the magazine as I listened to the podcast.  I have provide a link to PAT SLOAN’s podcast so if you have not downloaded the podcast before you can do so now…. It is well worth the listen.

ADDENDUM:   I was not too happy with the actual quilt patterns in this issue.  They were pretty much patterns that have the same blocks that have been published a number of times in the last several years ….. Churn dash, Snow Balls, hour glass, Ohio Star.  With over 4000 known royalty free blocks why do quilt magazines tend to use the same blocks over and over again?
HAPPY QUILTING,

STEP ONE > From picture to fabric

Saturday, April 19,2015

Saturday, was a day filled with errands including a trip to the dealership to have a mirror replaced on my driver side door.   I did not have a lot of time to actually work on my project but I did do a lot of thinking about it.  

My conundrum is how to replicate the art piece as close to his drawing as possible.  In part knowing myself I have to suppress my fussy nature I have to prevent myself from “fixing” his anatomical errors.  I also realized I wanted to be sure not to flip / mirror the orientation of the picture as I want it to look as close to the original as possible.  I am anticipating thread painting as some of the process so I am going to use my Ricky Tims Stable Stuff  to stabilize the fabric.   I drew out the picture on the stabilizer and then putting on a sun lit window redrew the picture.  I had used pencil when traced directly on the picture as I did not want to damage it.   When retracing on the window I used a fine line sharpie.  I figured since I can not get the sharpie marks out of my fabrics when I write on my uniforms by accident the marks will also stay when I do it on purpose.  I plan to fuse / my stabilizer to my fabric then sew from the back a single line of stitching recreating the drawing lines.   By having a mirrored drawing as my pattern when I sew from the back it should look like the original drawing.   I am going to use ( 60 wt) matching thread.  Hopefully, by doing this it will give me a basic sketch that I will use thread painting strengthen and define.  I can already tell the face is going to be the biggest challenge.

The next task I do have planned related to this project is fabric selection.  I am going into my stash to find fabrics that will work to replicate the drawing.  From those fabrics I will let my grandson pick the fabrics to go into the drawing.  I have to be careful on how I handle this as my grandson knows I have a stash of  Star Wars and Super Hero fabric that I will be using in the other blocks of the project.  I can see him wanting the drawings to have super hero clothes on.  It is his quilt but I will maintain control and decorum.

1- planning & first draft

1- planning & first draft

 

Doing a rough draft of the project on the stabilizer is as far as I have gotten for today….. no sewing. More errands and chores to do today …. such is life.

If anyone has any input, tips about the project and techniques I am using by all means tell me now, leave a comment.

HAPPY QUILTING,
NONNIE

TRYING SOMETHING NEW for me in blogging- –

I have been quiet for a while… just not sewing, quilting or doing much of anything creative or productive.  I have to decided to try something different for me.  I plan to post short blogs first detailing my plans then tracking my progress.  I am hoping this will keep me on track so that I actually make some progress with my projects.  Here is the first project I am blogging about as it is one I am currently starting as there is a great need.

My grandson came to me dragging his current quilt and told me he need a new quilt cause the ones he had are too small.  He is right cause he has a bed ( full size) and I have not made him a quilt since he was a toddler.  He has grown like a weed and the older quilts no longer cover him adequately….. My daughter has threaten to buy him a STORE BOUGHT QUILT if I do not get one done for him by the time they move into their new home.   So after consultation with my grandson we have come up with a plan.

Every year in school my grandson participates in a school wide art project.  They make self portrait and they are displayed in the hallways.  I sometimes wonder how much work he did on the projects and how much  was done by the teachers and para-pros.  Regardless he is very proud of these picture and insist they be kept safe.   I have taken pictures of his pre-school and kindergarten portraits (see pictures below.)  He is currently working on this years portrait  and I will probably include it in the quilt too.   I am planning to replicate the pictures in  fabric.  I am going through my stash of fabrics in order to get started.   I am planning to add my grandson’s favorite fabrics to the quilt but am not sure what pattern I will be using.  I am letting my grandson have a lot of input into this project.

 

I plan to post pictures of my progress …

Having fun with FREE MOTION QUILTING .. .. …

MAPLE LEAF

It has been a while since I started this little project. Last January I made the block which is the subject of my previous blog. I detailed in that post the problems I had making a maple leaf block using the new(er) picture piecing method. When I got home from my retreat I had to take my machine in for service. It took almost 2 and half months to get it fixed because they had to send to Switzerland for the parts. I did buy a Singer 301 as a back up machine but it does not do any free motion quilting. I did use it to piece the block I was working on but then I got stalled. It did not help that LIFE interfered with other home projects that could not be delayed. When I got my sewing machine back I finished the block in one afternoon and had a blast doing it.

 

 

Last year I had designed a 8 and 12 inch maple leaf blocks I had seen in a magazine. I had made several of the blocks for a quilt I want to make for my husband… This is my version of a block of the month. I make blocks of various sizes when ever I get the chance. I then put the blocks into a box and will assemble the quilt when I get enough of them. I also recently redrafted the block in EQ7 because I was not 100% satisfied with my first block draft. I had trouble lining up some of the pieces. For the post card I used the improved design but had trouble getting the size I wanted. For the BOMs it does not matter what the sizes my blocks are as they will be assembled as if they fell out of trees. I do get aggravated when I use EQ7 and do not get the block to look like what I want… to be honest I do not have enough hand control to draw really nice blocks. I usually have to fix the block when I sew. I am finding that when I redesign a block a second or third (4th) time it usually comes out better…. YES practice makes perfect… or at least nicer looking. . .

OUTLINE BACKING .-EEE

When I got to the free motion quilting I used a technique I saw / learned from my Craftsy class with CINDY NEEDHAM. She took a patterned fabric and used it as backing she then used it as her FMQ design. I did the same picked a pretty fabric; I then FMQed the background pattern. I used thread painting, over stitching and back tracking to add texture to the piece. This has inspired me to do the same to the BOM leaf quilt when I get to the point of FMQ. I have been looking for 108 INCH LEAF pattern backing fabric but so far NO LUCK. IF I do not find a patterned background fabric I like I going to make my own by using various stamping and marking techniques in order to get a leaf backing I like. By stamping my own background leafs I will take the plunge into mix media art work, but this is a blog for the future when I actually try out my ideas.
. .

BLOG- 1694.-EEE

This is the block I made … it is now on it’s way to the giftee. I am very pleased with it and look forward to making more blocks for my quilt using the new design …. I can hardly wait until I get to the FMQ part of the project.

BOOK REVIEW: PICTURE PIECING > TRADITIONAL QUILTS …. By Cynthia England

PICTURE PIECING > TRADITIONAL QUILTS …. By Cynthia England

http://www.amazon.com/Picture-Piecing-Traditional-Cynthia-England/dp/0972096310 . . . PICTURE PIECING ON AMAZON

pic piecing

 

I bought this book after seeing it highlighted on THE QUILT SHOW. I was looking for a MAPLE LEAF block to make first for a post card then later for an entire quilt. I will show you a picture of the block I made after several attempts at the bottom of the post. In part I can not blame the book and it instructions they are straight forward and detailed but I just could not wrap my brain around this technique. I think I set myself up for failure because I thought the technique simple after what I had seen on THE QUILT SHOW videos. ( By then I owned the TQS dvd.) I have been doing foundation / paper piecing for years this technique was suggested as a replacement for that technique. I will say after several attempts at making the block from the book I gave up trying and used a different technique. I had been enticed to try this technique by the pretty little block in several different quilts. I was terribly discouraged because I could not get good results. I may try this technique again in the future but for now I am putting it aside to go to something else.

MY FAILURES WITH THE BLOCK:

1.> I pre-selected fabric scraps ( from another quilt , more about that in a following blog ) that turned out to be poor choice for this block / technique. I would have a more successful block if I had selected similar color fabrics. The scrappy look did not work with this block.

2.> I had chosen black KONA as the background fabric but it was too dark, too close to the colors of scraps used in the block. I did not have enough contrast in the selections of fabrics to get the look I was trying to achieve.

REVIEW of the book, PICTURE PIECING > TRADITIONAL QUILTS …. Cynthia England

1.> There are 8-10 basic patterns that are then used in several projects. She has patterns for Maple Leafs, Roses, Violets, and several star blocks. She took the motifs she designs and used them in different ways with different effects in multiple projects. If you like her projects you might like this book they were very nice, very traditional in style.

2.> The instructions for the picture piecing process are detailed and inclusive with many tips and tricks that can be applied to any quilt. For that reason I enjoyed the book and came away some new ideas to be my quilting endeavors in the future.

3.> I will say this technique wasted a lot of fabric. I was only using scraps but I notice the waste when I watched the video on TQS and when I actually used my scraps. This technique wasted more fabric then the standard paper piecing . This is my opinion and others are free to disagree with it.

Rating:

At this time I rate this book 3 out of 5 ( GOODREADS) Frankly if I knew then what I know now I would not have bought the book. ( FYI: My library system does not carry this book … as a matter of fact they have very few quilting books of any kind. Which is odd as Mid MI is a quilt guild heavy area. ) That said, as of now I am keeping this book on my technique book shelf.


WHAT the leaf is suppose to look like… then what my block looked like. YOU can see why I threw in the towel.

MORE QUILTS BY BARBARA DOUGLAS

Here are more pictures of quilts made by Barbara Douglas. I am not sure of the names of the quilts but if you look on Barbara’s web page for her patterns you can find them listed there. Barbara has classes and patterns for applique (raw edge) and pieced quilts. Lately she has been experimenting in art quilts. She loves trying out new techniques, mastering them then teaching those skills to others.

I met Barbara Douglas when she came to our guild to give a lecture and trunk show. Barbara is a delightful woman from Midland MI. She started her own design business in 1999 after quitting her job at a big box store. Along with her own design works she writes and designs for QUILT PATTERN MAGAZINE an online quilt magazine. She also has been a consultant for my favorite PRESENCIA threads. Barbara does her own free motion quilting on her domestic machine. She has also taught classes on being creative with threads… but that was a different lecture.

Barbara was a delightful and informative speaker with a good sense of humor. Her trunk show consisted of 30 full size quilts and smaller projects spanning her quilting efforts. I especially liked the quilts from her book SINGULAR SENSATIONS. There was only one block used in the block but from that she created 14 different quilts. She demonstrates how by making simple changes in value placement she created movement and produce intricate-looking designs. She uses value to make the same simple block construction to change the look of the quilt. She laughingly says you will get tired of making the same blocks but you get excited when you start assembling your blocks into the quilt top. I particularly liked the quilts COLOR PUZZLE and TRELLIS. There will be several patterns I can think will be good for future baby quilts.

I can highly recommend Barbara as a speaker for any guild. I will be review Barbara’s book on GOODREADS after I have made a project from it.

NOT blogging, NOT podcasting … because I have been sewing.

Quilt top almost done; just need borders.

Quilt top almost done; just need borders.

Almost finished… my FOCUS POCUS quilt top is assemble but it just needs the borders added. I could kick myself cause I have set aside fabric strips to bring the pattern out into the border but I have looked high and low for the zip lock bag that had the fabric and it is GONE. So I have been re- thinking the border and will simplify it. Such a shame. I know I will find the bag once the borders are applied…. OH WELL…. Can’t win them all. I will post more pictures in the future when it is done. CURRENTLY .. The top is hanging on my drape rods that is why it is not hanging straight… is is straight. Just want to see how it looks so I can consider the borders.

For the free motion quilting I am taking it to a long-armer and having a simple edge to edge leaves pattern quilted. I will add some simple FMQ motifs after she has it adding names and dates to the quilt. I hope to give this to my niece … in the future.

BTW … found and interesting article all quilters should read about the REAL COST OF MAKING A QUILT. Be sure to follow the links to the YOU TUBE VIDEOS from QUILTY they had interesting information.
.
http://www.mooreapproved.com/2015/02/quiltonomics-the-real-cost-of-quilts/… REAL COST OF MAKING QUILTS …

Speaking of QUILTY the magazine will no longer be published. It is such a shame since it had become one of the few magazines I made a point to purchase. I liked their quilts alot, but I think the thousand of quilt blogs have cut into the magazine publishing business with tutorials, and free articles. A quilter no longer needs to buy magazines to get patterns.


WELL this is all for now. I am painting a bathroom this weekend and cleaning my bedroom as I am having a new mattress delivered tomorrow… Heaven forbid the delivery men see a messy bedroom.

RETREAT REPORT : First of a series

I went to the second annual Sew Crazy Retreat at LION’S BEAR LAKE CAMP in Lapeer, MI this past weekend. ( January 23-24-25th) I had an absolute blast. My table partners were Joyce and Carol Ann two delightful 80s something ladies. They regaled me with stories about their 58 year friendship and what FLINT MI was like in the old days. And boy could these gals do some sewing. They were funny and interesting and kept me on my toes. I camped in cabin #5 with Charlie and her crew of friends and we had a wine and cheese party that first night. This group of friends had been sewing together for years also.

I will be posting some pictures of various quilt projects being worked on and some finishes in a future post. I was so busy taking pictures of other people quilts I did not do a good job of keeping an update of my quilt project. I started out with one assembled row at the beginning of the retreat on Friday afternoon. I was able assemble rows 2 thru 6 and am on the final piecing of blocks for row 7. Below is the last picture I took of the quilt on Saturday afternoon. From then on I forgot to take pictures.

I cut all my focus (BIG) fabric blocks from fall fabrics from my stash. There are no repeats of any of the fabrics. I was able to cut four 2.5 inch strips along with the main focus block from a fat quarter. I had to assemble the blocks individually. The original pattern uses yardage of fabrics and strip piecing making it an easier pattern to make. I have 6 blocks across and 7 rows down. It should measure about 84 x 98 without the borders… planning on a king size quilt. I will be putting some

My girlfriend ROXIE has used the pattern several times and she loves it.  It is her go to pattern when she needs a fast quilt.  She uses yardage and strip pieces the secondary blocks.  I of course have to do mine the hard way no easy chain or strip piecing for me.

PATTERNS http://susanemory.com/products/quilt-patterns/

FOCUS POCUS - SWIRLY GIRL DESIGNS
This is the pattern that inspired my quilt. I made my blocks 14 inches finished for this quilt. My girl friend and I have redrafted the pattern for different size blocks for baby quilts. They turned out very cute. I love the border on the original pattern and hope to be able to use it on my quilt. I might have to come up with something different as I have “lost” strips needed for the border. I have been making this quilt at several different retreats and sew-ins. Some how the border strips are missing.

I thought the secondary block was called HOLE IN THE BARN DOOR, but when I looked it up they are not the same block. If you know the name of the second block please let me know. I have links to SWIRLY GIRL DESIGNS as they have several other patterns that ROXIE and I want to make.

Well I am tired as it has been a wild and busy week end. … so off I go to bed.. gosh it is not even 8:30 pm.

Book Review of QUILT COLOUR WORKSHOP

quilt colour workshop

 

I am somewhat disappointed in this book. Part of the disappointment is my own fault as I have read over 20 books on color theory in the past several year. Most of those books were heavy into theory and could have been used in any design or color theory class as text books. I think I was expecting an in-depth exploration of color theory as used in modern quilts. I felt this book was light on explanation and relied mostly on beautiful photography and color plates to make the book attractive. As this book was written by mostly modern quilters I was expecting an explanation of MODERN QUILT color selection and theory and how it is different from TRADITIONAL QUILTS.

The book does list in brief paragraphs color relationships and terminology, but it was light in details and explanation. It does demonstrate each of the color relationships ( ie monochromatic, analogous, complementary etc. ) in several blocks. Each block was made using the different color relationships and is highlighted by a small color wheel next to it demonstrating the relationship. This did help show the relationship between the colors in a block. I do think they should have explained how value between the colors helps establish the patterns. There was only a few sentences discussing the impact of value on colors in a block, pattern or in a quilt.

What I did like about the book , QUILT COLOUR WORKSHOP , is some interesting modern style quilts. Each of the quilt blocks and projects demonstrate a color relationship. There were several quilt patterns that I liked enough to consider making. ( AFTER my current projects are completed.) I would even consider making the quilts exactly as presented in the pattern. I found the patterns to be very graphic and contemporary in style and that to me was intriguing. I think my younger generation would like these quilts. I loved the quilt called CALM BEFORE THE STORM, it was a monochromatic red and white quilt. I also enjoyed the quilt they called MODERN VINTAGE WEDDING RING ; they classified this as split complimentary but I enjoyed it because of the soft , muted tones and neutrals.

I think this book could have been better with more detailed explanation of color theory. I also think they wasted pages with color plates as chapter headings. I would have much rather had head on pictures of the quilt projects. They had some nice stylized pictures of the quilt projects on beds, draped over a chair, etc. I would rather have close ups and straight on shots of a quilt. I like visual details of the projects I am considering. Some of the straight on shots of the projects looked more like digital ( EQ7 )mock ups rather then a photograph of a real quilt.

This book was more glitz and glamor then substance. I really would like a book that explains color theory in detail as applied to modern quilts.  I have my own theories based on observation and critiquing modern quilts I have seen but I would like modern quilt authors to delve into the discussion .  I rated this book 2.5 out of 5 originally but then I upgraded it to 3.0 because I liked several of the patterns. As a detailed explanation of color theory I feel it was seriously lacking and you should look for your information else where. I recommend most of the books by Joen Wolfrom. She also has a great blog where you can learn a lot about color theory.

SOURCES for buying QUILTING DVDs

I have been touting the fact that I like DVDs  better then on line streaming in several blog post.   I have decided to post the links to where I bought my DVDs for others who might like to buy quilting DVDs.   The list is in no particular order.  I have deleted any source that was unsatisfactory.   I have enjoyed the DVDs I have purchased from these source but as always you should  always think twice before buying on line.

2014 in review

The WordPress.com stats helper monkeys prepared a 2014 annual report for this blog.

Here’s an excerpt:

The concert hall at the Sydney Opera House holds 2,700 people. This blog was viewed about 31,000 times in 2014. If it were a concert at Sydney Opera House, it would take about 11 sold-out performances for that many people to see it.
