Market Street for My Mind’s Eye

April 1st, 2014

I had so much fun a few months ago (amid lots of house craziness, of course) designing a new paper line for My Mind’s Eye. I got to see the actual product last week for the first time, and I was just completely floored at how beautiful everything turned out.

Of course I had to wait until MME released the line, and today they did on their blog. So check out the My Mind’s Eye blog for lots of images (including the papers, which I don’t have yet), and they also are doing a big GIVEAWAY. So go over there for your chance to win!

I was able to grab some product when I was at the warehouse last week, and so I snapped some pictures for your viewing pleasure. My favorite part, of course is how the pressed gold foil looks!

Let’s start with the 8×10 art prints (with foil!). My super favorite part of the line. I am so hanging these up in my office and around the house.

Of course, one can never have too much washi tape! My favorite is the black/gold stripe.

These little gold foil button sets are just to die for! I love the gold edging on the backer card too.

And the big chipboard sheets… so stinking cute! The camera, cursive words, and globe. Love it all.

How To: Sew a Diagonal Strip Quilt

January 18th, 2014

Strip quilting with the Quilt As You Go method is pretty much the only way I can quilt these days. It’s such a quick and easy way to make a simple quilt, and be done with it in a matter of hours. I call it my 2-nap quilt, as I really can only quilt when my boys are napping, and a strip quilt takes about 2 nap times to get done start to finish. And lets be honest… I haven’t had much time to practice extensive quilting techniques, so this is pretty much as good as it gets for me right now.

Here’s a quick tutorial on my diagonal strip quilt, it’s a little bit more tricky than a standard strip quilt. First step is super easy – I cut 5″ strips out of all of my fabrics – You can do this with any size strip – a jelly roll would save you time on the cutting, but take more time on the sewing. I like the 5″ because I can cut all the left-over strips in half and use the 2.5″ for binding strips.

All the fabric is from my new line with Riley Blake Fabric - Lost & Found 2.

I laid them out in an order that I liked, and then moved onto the batting and backing. You want to cut your backing to your final quilt size (give or take for squaring up). For this quilt, I used the whole width of the fabric – so like 44″ and for the length I went about 64″ Then I cut the batting to match. I use a 100% cotton backing because it has a nice tack to it and sticks with the cotton fabric without any shifting. I iron the backing to the fabric with a hot iron to make the two pieces stick better to each other, and to remove any wrinkles. And I’m laughing as I look at this really wrinkly picture! I must have ironed it after this!

I wanted to make a diagonal strip quilt (never done this before), and thought it would be cool if I started at one corner, and then reversed the diagonal. So first step was to make a base-line to end my first set of strips.

I used my fussy cutter, to get a good straight edge from my fabric. I used my long ruler to follow that line and draw directly on the batting.

Okay so I don’t have a photo of the next step, but basically I laid out all my strips FACE-UP on the batting, starting on the baseline I just drew, and trimmed the ends about an inch longer than the end of the quilt.

Then all you do is start sewing. I rolled up the majority of the quilt so it would fit in my machine arm, laid down my first strip and sewed it down right-side-up. I just use a standard sewing foot and keep my feet in a normal position.

I took my second strip, and placed it right-side to right-side – matching up the seams, and sewed down. quilt_sew2_theprojectgirl

Flip the strip over – exposing the right-side. I recommend pressing this down to keep all your seams nice and flat. Then you take the next strip and again place it right-side to right-side – match up the seams, and sew.
