From K - Blogathon Canada & Giveaway

Welcome to Day 3 of the 2014 Blogathon Canada blog hop, hosted by Sew Sister's Quilt Shop! On today's stop, I am excited to be representing Alberta alongside the incredibly talented Leanne from She Can Quilt.

For new readers to our blog, my name is Kelsey, and I blog here at Everyday Fray with my cousin Amanda (who is really more of a sister/enabler/confidant). Though we are both Canadian, I am currently the only one holding down the fort up here in the Great White North, proudly residing in Calgary, Alberta. While Amanda has sought temporary refuge from the cold down in sunny California, she is undoubtedly Canadian to the core (and we hope to woo her back here one day!). If you'd like to know more about our journey, feel free to read more about us here!

Our blog is a compilation of both of our crafty imaginations, and the content on our blog is written by A (Amanda), K (Kelsey - that's me!), or A&K. While our focus is modern quilting, we strive to challenge ourselves, and often include various other crafts we're working on like sewing, cross stitch, needle work, weaving, knitting etc.

Some of the items we like to share with our readers include:
1. WiPs:
Blogathon Canada 2014 - Collages

2. Finished Quilts:

3. Bags and Pillows:

  1. I like to use Charm Squares as a basis for Half-Square Triangles. I just finished a quilt using Charm Squares and Jelly Roll Strips with the blocks set on-point. I'm just getting ready to bind it. The pre-cuts do make life simpler...
    Blogathon Canada is wonderful!

  2. I just pulled from stash a bunch of 5" charms that were waiting on a project. I will be making a HST quilt called Lattices from Moda Bake Shop.

  3. There are so many great quilt patterns out there. I like Wedding Dress's 100 square pattern. MQC has bunches. They are just all hun. Billie Lauder has great ways for 4 patches.

  4. I have just finished my 1st charm square quilt, with a set of Moda Rite of Spring charms. I am not close to a quilt store so don't have opportunity to buy them, For this quilt I sewed 9 patches, cut them in half both ways, and sewed them back together, I didn't love the fabric design but do love the quilt.

  6. Lovely projects :) Some of I've seen in past blog posts and I love the Cat Nap Bag! Did you create that pattern? I use Charm squares for baby quilts typically but I just finished up some star blocks with various colours of charm squares and love that. There's just so many possibilities with Charm squares. I cut a lot of my own charm squares with my scraps so I have a stack to choose from :)

    ReplyDelete

  15. Hi There, and thanks for hosting the blogathon. I am always puzzled when comes time to use pre-cuts, but I think my next charm project will be to pair with a solid, and make a bunch of HST which I will then turn into a small-baby quilt, or perhaps I will add some solid squares and borders to make the quilt bigger.

  17. Thanks for hosting.... I always have high hopes for making something with pre-cuts but like "good/favourite" fabric I find it hard to "cut into"....
