All month long I love collecting tips and tutorials for you. I also love seeing what pops into the linky party that is open until the end of the month. This month, I traveled and came home to a sick dog so I thought I would be short of content but no, there was plenty out there to share with you. Now, if you have missed some past #TTot22, you can check them out in the tab at the top of my page, or in the corresponding Pinterest board.
Without further ado, let’s see what I found while reading blogs this month!
TIPS for the Month
Yvonne always has excellent tips and tutorials for us. This tutorial on thread weight and needles is really helpful.
I loved this block from Alycia and it would be a fun one to do with some leftover scraps or more planned out. You could even use a feature fabric in the center block!
I love Sue’s instructions for how to do this triangle design with a ruler and no marking.
Leah Day has a treasure trove of quilting designs. This one, on a sunburst design is sure to become a favorite.
Who can resist making adorable baby bibs? Lots of great hints in here (who knew there were long shank snaps???).
I don’t have a door like this, but what a fun use of panels to make a door panel quilt. I actually could use one on my front door for the winter, to keep out some of the cold, now that I think about it.
I love a great project, as I have so many quilts. This reversible bucket hat comes highly recommended; let me know if you try it – some of you are so much better than I am at chasing squirrels!
I don’t make Percy wear these often, but I know some of you like a bandana for your 4 legged friends.
Wendy linked this terrific Trash Bag for your car last month, and I think it is a great idea for some of those scraps I have leftover!
Here is your chance to link up tips and tutorials that you find.
You are invited to the Inlinkz link party!
Come back later this week to see another block that I designed with Karen Thurn for the Partners in Design Destination: QAL! I have been a little slow this month, due to planned time for refreshment but also tending a sick doggie. He is progressing nicely, so I am hoping September will be a bit more productive!
Coming Up on the Blog:
Block 7 – Destination QAL – 8/24
Block 8 – destination QAL – 8/31
Thanks for the highlight, Kathleen. I have another idea for a tutorial, just haven’t had the time to get it done. Maybe next month!
Lots of fun links to check out…thanks for sharing! 🙂
Thanks for sharing these wonderful tips and tutes, Kathleen!!
I saw Alycia’s orange block tutorial – love! Leah Day taught me how to quilt on my longarm; I bought it used off eBay and her blog and demos on a domestic I translated to the longarm and had a ball.
Fabulous tips this month, Kathleen. I swear, you are trying to share some squirrel projects if I didn’t know better. Well, maybe I don’t know better! HAHA! Long shank snaps – quilting without marking (YES!), cute bucket hats – Chris??!! Did you see these?!! Thank you so much. ~smile~ Roseanne
Thanks for all the quilty goodness to do!! and for the little shout out – i got all excited seeing that!
