Are you looking for a small seasonal or monthly project for home decor? How about this quilted and pieced in-the-hoop calendar block? Or, use it as a pillow cover.
Simulating the look of hand embroidered crazy quilting is fast and easy with an embroidery machine! All the blocks in this set are stitched similar to paper piecing in the hoop using a stitch and flip method.
Last July, I digitized a set of continuous line baby animals and then used the same artwork to recreate the animals in appliqué and now I’ve finally finished stitching those appliqué versions!
Eight years ago, I wrote a post called Why Does My Embroidery Pucker (find it linked at the end of this post) and during the recently wrapped 2017 Virtual Sewing, Quilt, and Embroidery Expo, I focused on pucker problems in my two-part class called Professional Pointers for Pucker Prevention.
I love having a small bag to run around town with. Yes, there are times when I want to tote along a bottle of water, my iPad, some kind of handwork project, and/or a few other bulky items in a large bag, but for a quick shopping trip, who needs all that extra stuff?
Lately I’ve been on an ITH bag binge, as you might guess from the recent series of blog posts. First it was the ITH Snappy Glasses cases, a project collection with 6 panels for mixing and matching.
After I posted the Snappy Glasses Cases, I was bombarded with requests for a version that would fit in a 5×7” hoop so here’s a new bevy of bags. Although they may look different, they’re all done from just one design!
