Five more block combos--basically the way they came off the jelly roll. Then I'll reevaluate whether to make more blocks #scrappytripalong
  • I had a fleeting thought to use my solids jelly roll for this but had trouble envisioning it. I can't wait to see yours!

  • you do "live a colorful life". 💛💙💜💚❤

  • This will be stunning!

  • Can't wait to see yours :)

I love everything about this #ellisonlane project bag—it’s cute, and the size is perfect for taking my knitting on the go as it gets larger. Jennifer has a shop update coming soon with some new items. I already have mine picked out #merrychristmastome #choosehandmade #projectbag @ellisonlane

Thanks to everyone who left suggestions the other day. I incorporated quite a few and it is ready for the quilter. The star is my favorite part. ❤️🌟💚 #happychristmasquilt @makervalley #holidaysewing #scrappymakesmehappy
Foliage. This quilt was based on my #deltabreezequilt. I changed the bear paw blocks to maple leaves and kept the two sizes. 🍁🍂🍁. Had too much fun taking photos. AND I blogged—with more pictures and a tutorial with dimensions for the small leaf block 🧡🧡🧡#foliagequilt #afinishbycindy #oakshott #konacotton #quiltsinthewild #quiltersofinstagram #ilovesolids #colorcolourlovers #fallquilt #autumnquilt Quilted by the wonderful @quiltedsquid

One of my favorite fall quilts, Lanyard. But wait till you see the one I’m posting tomorrow! 🍁🍂🍁#lowvolumequilt #konacotton #essexlinen #colorcolourlovers #quiltsofinstagram #tbt
Aquatic. Inspired by tiles at a local high school swimming center (final photo) and #bluecarolinafabric by @the_tattooed_quilter, a perfect combination 💙✂️💙. Perfect wavy quilting by @quiltedsquid (Note: I had to get special permission to photograph the quilt at the aquatic center and the only time available was 11 am, so I had bright sun and shadows. Thank you @dianepainter !) #quiltsinthewild #quiltersofinstagram #makersgonnamake #afinishbycindy #finishit2017

Day 5 of #bpsewvember by @bimbleandpimble is “origin.” The origin of this quilt started with a spunky little girl named Ella. She came to our son and daughter-in-law at age 3 months through the foster system and became a full member of our family two years ago. She will be 4 next month and adds so much joy to our lives. The blocks in this quilt were made by many friends who followed the adoption journey. Pattern by @ayumills #booksforellaquilt #bpsewvember2017

Day 4 of #bpsewvember by @bimbleandpimble is “machine.” I sew nearly everything on my Juki. In addition, I have an Elna, used mostly when I need to zigzag, and three Singer Featherweights ✂️❤️✂️ My cute LEGO machine was made by @renecreates 😘 #sewingkeepsmesane #quiltersofinstagram #bpsewvember2017
A few weeks ago I was given the chance to be one of the #ccambassadors for @cotton_cuts I received three one-yard cuts of #divingboardfabric by @alisonglass. I decided to upsize the blocks from my #deltabreezequilt and used @konacotton Nautical as the background. The binding was also from the #divingboardfabric line. It was such fun to photograph in the beautiful backyard of friends, Gary and Ruth. It was quilted by Darby of @quiltedsquid #quiltsinthewild #quiltersofinstagram #createeveryday #afinishbycindy #konacottonsolids #konacotton #cottoncuts #iheartcottoncuts #iheartsbb #quiltsofinstagram #quiltsofinsta

Day 2 of #bpsewvember by @bimbleandpimble is #sentimental These are not the best pictures. They were taken back in 2006, ages before social media. We were expecting our first grandchild. Not only would this baby have four grandparents, but seven great grandparents. With the idea of making a family tree quilt, I collected signatures from everyone and included them in “album” blocks. Our precious Caleb passed away at three days old. Quilting was definitely my therapy during those days and remains the best therapy. ❤️✂️❤️ #bpsewvember2017

It’s #bpsewvember by @bimbleandpimble Day 1: Hi, my name is Cindy. I’ve been sewing forever and quilting over 20 years. I love orange but sewing with any color works for me, especially solids. My husband and I used to have a business called Around the Block Designs. When I first started commenting on blogs I would click on other commenters with intriguing names. I didn’t think our name was all that interesting, so I changed my blog to Live a Colorful Life. Now if I’d only start blogging again ... ✂️ #sewcialists #quiltersofinstagram #sewingkeepsmesane #bpsewvember2017

I had the most #fussycutfun when I made A Day at Disneyland quilt using @jenkingwell My Small World pattern. Thanks to all the #missingmarket hosts and sponsors. @gogokim @thesewingloft @duringquiettime There are even hidden Mickeys

The block I designed for my #charmparadepattern is still one of my #favoritequiltblock —so versatile. And super easy to construct even with that thin framing strip 👍🏻✂️ #missingmarket @yardgrl60 @gogokim @thesewingloft

So the prompt by @lillyellasworld for #missingmarket seems appropriate, #sewingwithoutboundaries—this is definitely pushing my limits—going through all my bags of selvages. And yes I do categorize a lot of them by “theme”. I didn’t realize @mw54 took this picture until he texted it to me. #looksoverwhelming #itis But this will make some super fun projects #iloveselvages
Playing #missingmarket with @gogokim and @thesewingloft. Today’s prompt is by @katebasti and is #WhatTheWIP. I won’t say it’s my oldest WIP but I’ve been working on it nearly three years. All the individual rosettes are done and I need to #thenewhexagonmillefiorequiltalong #denyseschmidt @katja_marek @dsquilts @paperpiecesepp #epp #englishpaperpiecing

#missingmarket #whereisew. The former living room is now my sewing room. I would love for it to be organized, with no piles (aka future projects) on the floor. But, sigh... #thatisnevergoingtohappen. I was super productive all week and now have no energy so my design wall is bare. And that pile of selvages?’s just the tip of the iceberg #iloveselvages @thesewingloft @gogokim

I originally thought I would go for an ombré effect for this #wisecraftstitchalong but now that I’m so happy with the first ring, I think I’ll do some more #libertyoflondon #fussycutting #wisecraftquiltsbook @blairs #epp #englishpaperpiecing #paperpiecesepp @paperpiecesepp

Awhile back, I had the chance to test a new pattern by @crazymomquilts called Emma’s Sitting Room (see her two versions in her IG feed). Trying to put a different spin on it and because #ilovesolids, I used four different colors of eight-step gradations of fabulous @cherrywoodfabrics and I’m really happy with the result 💜💙💚💗 Now I think I’ll big stitch in four shades of charcoal and end with a stripy binding ✂️#patterntesting #createeveryday #halfsquaretriangles #createeveryday #createmakeshare #modernmaker #quiltersofinstagram
