Quiltmaker’s 100 Blocks, Vol. 9 Blog Tour!


Welcome to Sewhooked and thanks for stopping by for the Quiltmaker’s 100 Blocks Blog Tour for Volume 9!

If it’s your first visit to Sewhooked, welcome! If you’re an old friend, welcome back!

This is a super exciting day for me. Not only do I completely love my design for this issue, but it’s the fourth time one of my blocks was chosen for 100 Blocks, which you have to admit, is super happy-making!

Be sure and stick around to the end for TWO awesome giveaways!

Strawberry Yum Yum, by Jennifer Ofenstein 2

Here it is, my delicious block, Yum Yum Strawberry Cake! You can find it on page 38.

Strawberry Yum Yum, by Jennifer Ofenstein

This part never gets old for me!

Strawberry Yum Yum, by Jennifer Ofenstein block

Yum Yum, Strawberry Cake was born from a sketch of cake. It was just a doodle really. I was having coffee, and as I tend to do, was doodling as I talked. And then there was cake!

Strawberry Yum Yum, by Jennifer Ofenstein

This particular block was made using a variety of fabrics from my stash. There’s a little Michael Miller, some Moda and some Timeless Treasures, as well as a few miscellaneous scraps for the stem. Maybe we should say Yum Yum Fabric!

To add a bit of interest, I decided a declaration of the deliciousness of cake was in order! I use a variety of methods to transfer embroidery to fabric, but for this project, I decided Saral wax free paper would work best. It comes off fairly easily, so it isn’t great for highly detailed embroidery, but it’s perfect for something simple and fast like “yum yum.”

You can find Saral paper on Amazon or at your local arts & crafts supply.

Here’s what the traced word looks like. Perfect for stitching!

While working on my design for Yum Yum Strawberry Cake, I kept coming back to the idea of placemats. How fun, how easy and how very summery! I created four coordinating placemats with four different cakes in similar styles. You can find this photo in the same issue of QM, page 20.

I can’t even begin to tell you how happy these placemats make me! I hope to be able to share instructions for them very soon!

And now, the part of this post you’ve been waiting for…

Blogger’s Quilt Festival: Doctor Who Quilt Revisited

Doctor Who Quilt 2013

Doctor Who Bed Quilt, 2013

Welcome to my second post for Amy’s Creative Side’s twice-annual Blogger’s Quilt Festival, this time in the Bed Quilt category.

Did you miss my first post? It’s right here!

Yeah, that’s right, I’m posting twice…Bloggers can enter two categories this year and my 2013 has been very quilty!

Also? Be sure to read to the end for a fun giveaway!


There are a couple of themes going on my BQF posts. 1) Fandom! Fandom! Fandom!  and 2) Quilts made for people I love.

If you read my previous post, then you know I made an Agatha Christie wall hanging for my best friend’s birthday. This post is all about the Doctor Who quilt I made earlier this year for my daughter’s first dorm room.

To celebrate the 50th Anniversary of Doctor Who, my other quilting site, Fandom In Stitches, hosted a Doctor Who Stitch Along. Myself, along with an number of other talented designers, presented 12 free hand embroidered designs depicting the first 11 Doctors plus the TARDIS.

For my own project, I created a unique layout that would ultimately make a quilt large enough for my daughter to use while living away from home.

She’s a freshman this fall, and it was especially important to me to create a quilt that was meaningful to her.

The eleven Doctors and the TARDIS are surrounded by faux mitered blocks with an army of paper pieced Daleks marching around the border. (Free Dalek pattern).

The Doctors are hand embroidered using DMC on Moda Marble Dots.

The entire quilt was free-motion quilted by me on my Baby Lock Quest Plus.

Fandom Dorm

Above, you can see the quilt on her first-ever dorm bed!  I made the quilt at the foot of the bed, too. It’s also something she loves…InuYasha!

She texted this photo to me, and I still tear up a bit when I think of her wrapped in quilts I made. :)

See the InuYasha quilt here!

And, because I know it’s likely to come up, you can get the free TARDIS pattern by me (see the throw pillow?) on Fandom In Stitches! ;)

The Tenth Doctor, quilted

My daughter’s favorite Doctor? This handsome guy here! She wanted swirly quilting, so that’s what she got!

Watch the video where I talk about this quilt!

Doctor Who Quilt - LabelWe also invited our community to share their own designs, like this 50 Years block designed by Jessica used for the label on my daughter’s quilt.

See more pictures of this Doctor Who Quilt.
