Mr. Weasley is a very wise man.

August 9, 2014

Never trust anything that can think for itself if you can't see where it keeps its brain.
Never trust….

A quote from Harry Potter & the Chamber of Secrets, as spoken by Arthur Weasley

7″ embroidered

This is it. The design that inspired the entire idea for The Summer of Stitching on FiS! I’ve had this in my mind to do forever, just years, and it’s finally a real thing!

My idea behind this was to do a wizardy version of a embroidered saying that might hang on the wall at The Burrow. I’ve loved this quote since the very first time I read The Chamber of Secrets. How incredulous Mr. Weasley is when he realizes that Ginny has (as he sees it) ignored his good advise!

You’ll find credits for the fonts used (even the griffin is a font!) in the pattern itself.

It’s been a while since I created a new Harry Potter pattern, and I have to say, it was not only fun, but brought back a lot of good memories from when I was designing HP almost every day.

Make It Sew

August 3, 2014
Picard Sampler (Summer of Stitching)
Picard Quote Sampler
7″ embroidered
It’s no secret that I love my fandoms!
It should also, by now, not be a secret that I love Star Trek.
My very first website was a Star Trek fan site, way back in the early internet days of 1996. Seriously, 1996. I wrote the HTML in Notepad and hosted it through my ISP. It was back in the day of Geocities and entire pages consisting entirely of links. I still remember creating my first animated .gif: the Voyager ship flying across my website, and how unbelievably proud I was of that.
My, how times of changed! Fortunately, my love of fandom has not and since then, it’s way cooler to be a geek. Who knew that would ever happen!
To celebrate Star Trek on Summer of Stitching, I created a Picard Quote sampler of some of my favorite utterances from the man himself. The pattern is free for personal & non-profit use. I do hope you’ll enjoy it!

Paper Piecing Vintage – August

August 1, 2014

August Paper Piecing Vintage Block

 

Welcome to August!

It’s hard to believe, but after today’s update, there are only four more blocks to go in Paper Piecing Vintage!

Today, I bring you a slightly different take on a very classic block, the Spider Web. I call mine Caught in the Web!

As with all the blocks from PPVCaught in the Web is entirely paper pieced and both 6″ and 12″ patterns are included.

Your August PPV update includes a surprise Bonus Block (not pictured)!

Already registered? Download your updated BOM file now!

August PPV, helpful hint
Save some time by following these bonus directions:

  • The 12″ pattern includes only one page. Make four copies and lay out the pieces following the included lettered units and using the 6″ pattern as a guideline.
  • For simple pre-cutting, use a strip of fabric and alternate pieces for triangles (see photo). This works on either size block and for many other PPV designs, too!
  • Save time by chain piecing like pattern pieces.
  • Have fun!

Paper Piecing Vintage Signature Block
Thanks to your generosity, I have already received many wonderful 6″ signature block for the Paper Piecing Vintage Signature Quilt!

If you have not yet shared yours, I will be accepting Signature Blocks until December 31, 2014. See your pattern for details and check out our Facebook Group for photos of blocks received so far!
