An Easy Modern Apron

It has been a while since I’ve taken a class on Craftsy. I think I took one when Craftsy was fairly new. I’m a visual learner so I do like having the teacher right at my fingertips. When Betz White asked if I’d like to take her newest Easy Modern Apron class, I said absolutely!

I watched the videos of Betz While I was folding laundry. I know you are supposed to watch them as you are making the apron, but I find that my mind works in a different way. I love Betz’s gentle voice. She explained everything well. The class was quite in-depth and was easy to understand what Betz was talking about.  One nice thing about the class is you can ask a question online. Other people may have had the same question and you can read through to see if your question already has an answer. You can also share images of your completed project with other students. I do like to see how other people have interpreted the same design.

After I watched the class, I really didn’t need to use the printable instructions except for the cutting measurements. There is a coloring sheet so you can get an idea of how your completed apron will work. I did print out the coloring page and the instructions. I colored on the instructions to keep myself organized. It worked like a charm. It was nice to have both the printable instructions and the actual class. I could easily refer to either at any time.

I typically buy fabrics in 1/4 yard increments so I had to run to a fabric shop for this. I have recently started batch cooking and needed another apron. I don’t know about you, but I am messy in the kitchen and I really do love and use aprons. I wanted something bold so that any stain will be less noticeable. I found this amazing yellow floral print from Victoria Findlay Wolfe’s Mostly Manor line. I picked up the crazy striped print and another geometric print to go with it. I knew the floral would be amazing with the princess seam detail on the front of the apron. A good fussy cut design really works well with this apron.

I added a thin strap so I can hang a hand towel on the apron.  I suppose you could just wipe your hands on the apron, but I’d rather wipe my hands on a towel and wash the apron only when needed.

I’m delighted with how the apron came out. It is bold and pretty at the same time. I love the detail of the princess type seam in the front and all the topstitching. I think a nice topstitch can take a handmade item to a more professional level.

If you would like to take the class yourself, Betz has offered a code that you can use until October 24th and receive 50% off the class!

It’s a fabulous class!

Thanks Betz for sharing your lovely class with me and my readers.

It’s my day on RJR Fabrics’ What Shade Are You Blog Hop!

sharpenedHi! Welcome to my little corner of the web. I’m Anjeanette Klinder and I’m so excited to be participating in the What Shade Are You blog hop today! You can read my post on RJR Blog

If you follow me on Instagram, you’ve no doubt, been watching my progress on this quilt.

I started with the most yummy selection of colors. Bright yellows, purply-reds and oranges. It’s my homage to a happy fall color palette.

I own a midarm machine. Unfortunately, it is in need of repairs, so I went to the local quilt shop and quilted it up with a huge meander. I wanted the piecing and design to be the star of the show.

I still have some of the fabrics leftover and I will be making another quilt with this same combination.

bias binding

I’m not sure if my favorite part is the checked bias binding, the huge checked background or the stripes on the front.

back sharpened

I matched the backing seam off by one row, because I think that is an interesting detail. It’s always the details that make a design interesting.

The day I set aside to take pictures of the quilt, it was raining and raining. ALL. DAY. LONG. The weather app said there was going to be a break for about an hour. But it didn’t happen. My boys go back to school next week, so they were my helpers. They stood in the rain as we went from place to place without too much grumbling. They are the sweetest. It’s nice that my older son is now taller than me. His long arms make for great quilt holding. And my younger son held the umbrella for me.

Piece and Quilt with Precuts Blog Hop

Today is my turn on the Piece and Quilt with Precuts blog hop. Piece and Quilt with Precuts Blog HopIt is a lovely new book by Christa Watson of Christa Quilts. She has designed fun piecing patterns as well as included suggestions for how to do the actual quilting. Christa has a way of making quilting easy for everyone.

1 AnjeanetteKlinder blog hop Twinkling Diamonds

I picked a pattern called “Twinkling Diamonds”.

5 AnjeanetteKlinder blog hop Twinkling Diamonds

When I went on vacation this summer, I picked up some fat quarters of Amy Sinibaldi’s new line Little Town. There are the most adorable little houses just perfect for fussy cutting. When I sat down to make my Twinkling Diamonds blocks, I wondered if I could shrink the pattern down to use the fussy cut houses in the center of the diamonds.

2 AnjeanetteKlinder blog hop Twinkling Diamonds

I checked with Christa to make sure she was ok with that. Christa is just an easy going kind of person. Her response was “Sure! Feel free to interpret it however you like. Then readers will be able to see how versatile the designs are and how easy they are to scale down.” It’s true. This design was easy for me to make half the size. I like how the original pattern has a dark background. The twinkling diamonds really stand out. For my version, I wanted a snowy look for the background to go with the fabric I picked for the diamonds. I thought it went well with the cute Winterberry Spice print as the diamonds and the houses as the center of the diamonds.

3 AnjeanetteKlinder blog hop Twinkling Diamonds

I hand quilted with some big stitches to give the background some texture. Then I machine quilted around the diamond centers and the outside of the large diamonds. I used my stitch in the ditch foot, but offset my needle just a little to have the off white stitching create a nice frame.

4 AnjeanetteKlinder blog hop Twinkling Diamonds

I contemplated using a faced binding, but thought a little line of the snowy background would be the best way to finish it off. I’m really glad I didn’t face it. I think the binding is the perfect touch. I’m still not sure if I’ll call this a table runner or a wall hanging. Either way, I can’t wait to use it once the weather cools off.

Christa has a great Facebook group you may want to check out. She offers all kinds of helpful piecing and quilting tips and gives you heads up on her latest Craftsy classes and lectures. She also posts Facebook Live videos which are always fun and full of good information.

Thanks Christa, for letting me have a sneak peak at your book before it came out. It is a great resource for any quilter’s library.

Bountiful Blog Tour

The ever talented Sharon Holland has once again designed a delightful new fabric line named Bountiful for Art Gallery Fabrics.

 

Bountiful is my newest fabric collection for Art Gallery Fabrics that celebrates the beauty and natural resources of the vast countryside in America’s Midwest. “

I’m thrilled that Sharon sent me a bundle of her fabrics to play with. I started following her a while ago when I discovered she used some of my favorite colors and created the softest, most delicate fabric designs. 

Bountiful Blog Hop Anjeanette 1

Bountiful Blog Hop Anjeanette 2

I really wanted to play with the push and pull of value and placement. It is so interesting to me how changing one or two things completely changes the look of the block.

Bountiful Blog Hop Anjeanette 3

I admit I went all geeky with Y-seams and spinning my intersections. This stuff is what I live for creatively.

Bountiful Blog Hop Anjeanette 4

I loved the stack of them together. I was a little disappointed that there weren’t more. Next time I’ll make a zillion of these blocks.

Bountiful Blog Hop Anjeanette 5

I don’t know about you, but I typically design a quilt around the fabric. I am taken with odd shapes like hexagons and triangles in quilts. I also enjoy playing around with scale of blocks. I thought it would be fun to create two blocks that I usually see in English Paper Piecing designs and turn them into pieced designs.  I changed my idea a few times. After I made a handful of the blocks I decided to order a few more of her fabrics from Bountiful to fill it out a little more with more dramatic contrast.

Bountiful Blog Hop Anjeanette 7

I struggled deciding on the accompanying fabric. I picked both an Art Gallery Linen and an Art Gallery denim to see which I liked better with these fabrics. They are completely different from the other, linen and denim.

The linen adds a physical depth and texture, and is super subtle. Some of the blocks melt away into the linen. In contrast, the denim is more bold and provides a nice contrast to the subdued fabrics. The denim is also buttery soft and so nice to sew with. I chose to use both and play on their properties.

Bountiful Blog Hop Anjeanette 9

I let some of the lighter blocks melt into the linen. I also put a bold more saturated block next to the denim and let it melt away. I really had fun with the fabric placement based on value, scale and orientation. This is the kind of thing that sets my soul on fire.

Bountiful Blog Hop Anjeanette 11

I’m still trying to figure out the final layout for this quilt. I need to hold it up to my husband for snuggle size. Unfortunately, he’s away at sleepaway camp with my younger son. The final layout isn’t decided upon. I suspect I’ll order some more denim to really set the edges off. We shall see.

 

So far this blog hop has been amazing! My friend Cindy of Live a Colorfullife used Bountiful to make her Delta Breeze quilt pattern. It looks amazing in this line. I love seeing the side by side of a more modern version of the same pattern. The other makers are just top notch too. Lynn Harris from Little Red Hen shared yesterday. She made some gorgeous outfits from the Art Gallery Knits in Sharon’s designs. I’ve yet to try their knits but it is on my ever growing wish list. Tomorrow is Mathew of Mister Domestic. I’m certain his project is going to be a delight too.  Follow along and see for yourself. Sharon sure rounded up a bunch of talent for this hop!

Smile and Wave Tote with Betz White’s new Dutch Treat fabric

DutchTreat_Collage_72dpi_jpg_400x400_q85

It is always nice getting to meet other creative minds in real life. I’ve been fortunate enough to have met Betz White a few times. She is fairly local to me. My quilt guild has had her for a trunk show for one of her books. I took a class from her at a local quilt retreat and I feel like there was another time. She is just sweet as can be. When I saw that she was putting out a new fabric line with Riley Blake, I was so excited for her.

 

smile and wave tote anjeanette klinder 4

I was fortunate enough to get to play with some of her new fabric. How cute is this selvage? I love details like that. I was drawn to the blues and greens in her line so I chose fabrics in those colors. The other colorways are adorable as well.

I’ve had her Smile and Wave Tote on my mile long to do list. I thought this was the perfect excuse to make it. What gets me are all the curved details. You just don’t see that design element often in totes. I made the large size because I’m always in need of large totes. Every time I go to anything quilt related, I kick myself in the pants because I need more ways to carry all my quilty accoutrement.

Smile and Wave Tote Anjeanette Klinder 3

I had exactly the right amount of  Pellon Flex Foam for this tote. I’m not 100% in love with foam of any brand. I think it changes the shape of the bags and totes it is used in. With a tote this large, I wanted something that would stand on it’s own. While I LOVE how easy foam is to use, and I love it for this project, I think it flattens the tote a little more than I like. I still think it was the right insides for this tote. It just makes the sides flare out a little more than I like.

 smile and wave tote Anjeanette Klinder

There is a large pocket in the front. I omitted the pocket in the back. I only use one pocket on a tote. I like to have a definite front and back. I love the curve of the blue on top and bottom of this tote. smile and wave tote Anjeanette Klinder 2

I can’t wait to fill this with fabric and take it to my next quilt guild meeting. Check out Betz White’s website for more awesome projects with this adorable new line.

Sweet Baby Jane Mini Quilt with Tapestry Fabric

Anjeanette Klinder Sweet Baby Jane

When we moved to Maryland in 2010, my favorite colors became yellow and orange. I fell in love with the colors of spring here. Coming from the desert of Arizona, the happy spring colors became a fast favorite. Once again, we had seasons and something beautiful to look forward to in each season.

In the last maybe three years, peach has really grown on me too. It is a softer version of orange and yellow, you know! Since I use fabric as my main creating medium, I am somewhat limited by what I can create, based on what is availible. For years, you have been able to get lovely pinks and reds. Finding pretty orange, yellow and peach fabrics has been extremely hard. When I saw the newest Tapestry Fabric line from Sharon Holland I knew I needed to get my hands on it. It is the perfect orangy peach.  I think some might call it tangerine, but that seems harsh for this lovliness.

Tapestry Fabric by Sharon Holland of Art Gallery Fabric

Tapestry starts with these lovely soft floral designs in delicate colors. There is a bit of boldness with the Tanger and Earth Mudcloth designs on the bottom row. For more contrast, there are geometric designs like the two middle prints. That is my perfect mix of fabric prints. And of course, the colors are my favorite. I’ve waited a long time for a nice soft grouping of peaches and tangerine colors.

Since my quilt guild friends and I have been playing with the Diabolical Jane design, I decided to make another in a mid mini size. This one I made completely for me. I have a space on my wall where it will reside. I used the same process to sew the segments together. The measurements of my rectangles are 2 1/2 X 6 1/2. The squares are 2 1/2 X 2 1/2. I like the idea of floating the center part of the design on some light peach solid fabric. I think it makes the center design stand out.

Thanks to Sharon Holland for finally making a lovely line with everything I adore about fabric. I’ve already made another purchase to keep these lovelies in my stash.

Diabolical Jane coloring page

Diabolical Jane on IG

You can search IG for #diabolicaljane to see the adventures so far.

 

The DCMQG often goes on field trips to different museums and art exhibits in the area. A while ago, they went to the Women’s museum and saw some antique quilts. There was one quilt in particular that many of our members were taken with.

Jessie had worked on her own version. With the recent blizzard, there was a lot of sewing time for many of us. She pulled her beauty out and it sparked Melinda to start her own.

Jane has one of her own in progress too.  This links to her IG I’m not sure if she has a blog.

I had a sick little boy and wasn’t able to get any sewing time in. However, I did a mock up to play with color placement. Jane and Jessie are keeping to the original color placement. I’m ok with screwing it up.

There was a bit of back and forth between Jessie, Melinda and I as they were searching for the perfect fabrics and placement for their own version. The name Diabolical Jane came up because it is a simple idea, but the selection of fabrics and placement of said fabrics is a bit of a battle.

Anyway, here is a coloring page I mocked up while sick boy was in my lap. I am sure there are going to be many different variations of this and I can’t wait to see what everyone comes up with. Jessie is going to have a tutorial up on her blog at some point.

Diabolical Jane from Anjeanette

I tried to come up with something similar to the original value layout here.

And then just some random playing because I like to do this kind of thing.

Pellon Fusible Flex Foam Blog Hop

When Pellon asked me if I wanted to play with a new Flex Foam that is **FUSIBLE** I may have wept a little. I mean really, does it get any better than Fusible Flex Foam? I said absolutely yes!

highresolution

The deets: “Pellon® Flex-Foam™ is a lightweight stabilizer consisting of a layer of foam sandwiched between two layers of soft fabric. It is excellent for use in crafts, accessories, and home décor projects for an elegant finished look. It can be used in place of or in addition to other stabilizers. Flex-Foam is a breeze to sew through and adds shape and body to projects such as computer cases, eyeglass cases, purses, tote bags, cup holders, diaper bags, and more! It is compatible with a wide variety of fabrics. It is available as a sew-in, a 1-sided fusible or a 2-sided fusible. Available 20” on the board and 60” on the roll*. ”

FFCloseup

FF78F1 Flex-Foam™ 1-Sided Fusible – http://www.pellonprojects.com/products/ff78f1-flex-foam-1-sided-fusible/

FF79F2 Flex-Foam™ 2-Sided Fusible – http://www.pellonprojects.com/products/ff79f2-flex-foam-2-sided-fusible/

Flex-Foam is a great way to add soft and sturdy support to anything you want to keep it’s shape. And now you can fuse it right to your fabric.

All I could think of was how I could totally eliminate a drop in liner for simple bags and totes. For several nights I couldn’t get the idea of a simple tote made with the 2-sided fusible and bound seams out of my head. Of course, there are a multitude of other uses for the Fusible Flex Foam, but this is the one that instantly piqued my interest.  Any small zip bags, basic tote or pouch could fairly easily be made with the Fusible Flex Foam foam and hiding the seams in some binding. 

I like the look of quilting on the Flex Foam. I played around a little with some basic tracing of the fabric elements with my hopping foot.

flex foam Anjeanette

The product sews like a dream. When I was sewing straight stitches, I used my walking foot and used Clover Wonder Clips to hold it all in place instead of pins. Again, with my walking foot it sews beautifully. I like the texture created by sewing on the foam. Since it is fused to the fabric, you certainly don’t need to quilt it, I just liked the look of a patchwork tote. I used a simple shape with curved bottom. The Flex Foam gives great structure to the tote without being hard. You can squish the tote up and it will bounce back into shape.

flex foam Anjeanette 1

I love the way my tote turned out. It is simple and yet yummy. 

flex foam Anjeanette 2

The best part is the lining is perfectly snug against all the sides without any sagging or pulling. And while we are at it, no saggy bottom either! I hate a saggy bottom.

My Meadow Quilt Workshop with Lizzy House

Lizzy House Anjeanette 1

I love taking classes from other quilters. I don’t care if it is my “style” they are teaching. I can always learn something new. I honestly think that I get so much more out of the experience of making, when I can make with other makers. In the flesh I feel so connected to something more than just playing with fabric. I also think just watching how other makers make, I always pick up something new.

Lizzy House Anjeanette 2

So fabric designer, artist, quilter, dress maker, person extraordinaire Lizzy House came to our DC area to teach her workshop only Meadow Quilt. It was pretty popular in our area, actually. It quickly grew into 5 or 6 days of workshops as well as a DCMQG sponsored lecture one evening. My friend Pam of Del Ray Fabrics hosted two of the workshops at Fibre Space. Natalie of Finch had two days as well as some of the ladies from our guild had another workshop in Virginia. I can’t remember the name of the location.

Unfortunately, I wasn’t able to make it to the lecture. I really wanted to hear Lizzy’s lecture. I wanted to know more about her story and how she got where she is. I heard it was great though. Not that I’m surprised at all.

Our location was just as adorable as could be. The shop inside was very clean and organized, but still comfy. If only I was a knitter. I would likely visit more often.

Lizzy House Anjeanette 3

I was half an hour late. It was crazy! I had given myself an extra half an hour to get there on time. But DC area traffic being what it is, it took me an hour longer than I expected. (Read two and a half hours for something that should have been one and a half.) As I was driving in, I was contemplating just turning around. For raising a family, we live in a nice rural area. But for getting together with other makers, it just seems so far. A comparison of driving in the LA area and the DC area is likely a good one. It was a nightmare. I’m glad I decided to press on.

By the time I got there, I was embarrassed for being late, and a bit flustered by the drive. Luckily for me, my friend Melinda Quirky Granola Girl had saved me a space. I missed introductions from everyone and particularly Lizzy.

Lizzy House Anjeanette 5

Lizzy House Anjeanette 6

Lizzy was sweet and very knowledgeable! She knows this quilt inside and out. She sat down and actually stitched up the block on a close sewing machine. She was so down to earth and fun.

She makes her clothes too! I don’t know about you, but that is absolutely bonus points in my book. I’m impressed with people that know more than just quilting.

Lizzy House Anjeanette 7

She paused for lots of pictures of each step. Waiting for each person to fully understand each step.

Lizzy House Anjeanette 8

Here she was squaring up my block.

Lizzy House Anjeanette 9

She also previewed her new line. I am so in love with the peachy/orange colors.

Lizzy House Anjeanette 10

When we were done with our sample blocks, she even signed our blocks if we asked her to.

I am so glad I was able to make it to her workshop. She doesn’t sell the pattern, you have to take the workshop to learn how to make it. She finishes up the Meadow Quilt Classes this year I believe.

If you still have openings for this workshop near you, I highly recommend it.
