Totally Tubular


While I was surfing the Net, looking for strip tube quilting ideas I ran across one from Tula Pink.

It is called Totally Tubular and I fell in love with the idea. I found a tutorial on Cottage Mama and she mentions the Tula Pink book that it can be found in.

I did something a little different to include some strip piecing on 3 1/2 inch by 10 inch paper to showcase some of my smaller scraps then assembled them using the TT method.

Here is what I have so far, another one that I will show you a finished product a little later.

This method is really fun and will showcase rectangular pieces of your favorite focal prints with a nice background, good for a variety of fabric lines.

Belgian Waffles Are For Sewing


Now who would have guessed that Belgian waffles would be involved in a quilting class? I had now idea until I attended the Coffee Club at Nuts and Bolts.

We cut strips of fabric and sewed them together into a very fun block that accentuated fun fabrics in center block set while enjoying coffee and Belgian waffles.

It was great fun. Here is what I have accomplished so far, will post a finished picture when I get it assembled.

Fabric Box

I found this tutorial online and fell in love with the idea.

This first one was a test and I did it with an 11 inch square. Next time I will really try the 10 inch since the squaring of the corners may be easier.

More Tube Quilting

The mid-winter Reds was such a success that I will be teaching a class in how to create block by tube quilting in March.

This Blue tablerunner is the one I have created for a shop sample. It is a fun technique that turns out a complicated looking project with a simple construction.

Some Fun Little Projects

 
First I made some Zippies to contain the little things in my purse and one for mom to keep her stray cash.
 
Both turned out cute for little time spent. Love the fabrics.
