Removing the Paper

Recently, I’ve been asked several times how I remove paper from my blocks. Back in January 2008, I made a video to show just that. This was pre-TTMT, which seems like an age ago.

This is the way I do it…if you have a different technique, I’d love to hear about it.

Enjoy this blast from my video past!

TTMT #103 – 359 Days

It literally took me ALL DAY to upload this video. Between a faulty internet connection and a really long video, I thought I would miss my first Tuesday since starting TTMT in 2009! Fortunately, I did *not* miss posting on Tuesday and I hope the video is worth the wait.

Herein lies massive post-quilt-retreat Show & Tell! There will be a photo post in the near future. I’m just waiting for a wee bit of sunshine so I can get fabulous out-of-doors photos!

New Project of Doom block tomorrow!

Modly Layer 'Em Up
The Ugly Quilt, a quilting experiment gone wrong. I just could not make myself like this. I tried. Eventually, I just gave up and stitched the blocks together. Several people told me it was very striking. The two redeeming qualities of this quilt – it lay perfectly flat for quilting and it squared up exactly. I’m sure someone will love it, I was just very tired of looking at it.

Blue Granny
Blue Granny – I love this ‘ghan. It is made of leftovers from Blue Bricks and the last couple of skeins of blue yarn in my stash.

Also? Picot edges make me happy.

Paper Piecing: Drawing a Patchy Heart

patchy heartPatchy Heart Pattern

One of the most constant requests I’ve had over the years is for a video tutorial showing how I design paper pieced patterns.

Putting together a pattern is a step by step process, but designing is not. It’s artistic and intuitive.  Even so, there are some basic techniques that stay the same every time you start a new pattern.

The absolute best advice I can give you is practice, practice, practice!

This is how I do it. In the next two videos, I’ll walk you through, step-by-step, my own process. Both videos are real time.

If you make any pattern, craft or recipe from sewhooked, I’d love to see a photo. Email me or add it to the sewhooked flickr group.

Happy crafting!

Video: threadly tip

I received an awesome goody bag from a friend recently that contained (among other things) tiny lint rollers.  I tossed them in my sewing basket and went about my business.

That is, until I had some serious seam-rippage to take care of and got totally frustrated at the million and one wee bits of thread!

This short video is just a quick tip, a time saver for quickly conquering all that itty bitty post-rippage thread!

As always, if you make any pattern or craft from sewhooked,  I’d love to see a photo. Email me or add it to the Friends of sewhooked flickr group.

Happy crafting
