Fabulously Fast Quilts


If you are looking for the (late) parade of mini quilts...it will post on Saturday. Sorry for the inconvenience...I have some market sewing deadlines to meet :)





Welcome to my stop on the Fabulously Fast Quilts blog tour. I am so honored that my friend Amy asked me to participate--she is an amazing person and wonderful quilter. I always come away inspired after talking with her, and her blog is informative, fun, and full of "quilty" eye candy!



 You can see from these photos that there are some very inspiring projects included in Fabulously Fast Quilts!



I love the simplicity and the modern feel of this squares quilt...


And this one...well...I love it (and the aqua barn in the photo). And... Amy asked each blogger participating in her tour to share a tip  that helps us get things done "fast." Well I've been doing lots of sewing lately...with lots of quarter-square triangles...and I recently posted my favorite fast (and accurate) method for making them.


You can find my post on my favorite fast and fun quarter-square triangle method here.

Be sure to stop by the other blogs and read all about their fast and fun tips for sewing and quilting!

Thank You Sherri for your tutorial and tip - I try so hard to keep even seams and trim exactly, but...I'll look into one of those rulers. Thanks!

Thanks for the tip Sherri. I know that if it is coming from you it has to be good! Hope to see what those little beauties become.

Thanks for the tip. I have to admit that I have trianglephobia so I am always looking for ways to improve.
