NATIONAL QUILTER'S CIRCLE MYSTERY MEDALLION




Welcome back! I am so excited to see all of the wonderful blocks from part 1. There are so many creative quilters out there. Each block is so different. That is what is wonderful about a mystery quilt and the imagination of all of you. Some of you are happy with your results and some of you were not. Some took time to make more than one option, some redid their blocks. Don't get discouraged! Keep working at it and you can get it done. Seeing the finished product is such a satisfying experience for me.

PIECING ACCURATE BLOCKS

Let me take a few minutes to talk about consistency, accuracy and using the proper tools. The last blog I showed my video on establishing an accurate 1/4" seam allowance. There are a lot of things that go into sewing an accurate block and the 1/4" is just one of them. Using some type of guide to line up the edge of your fabric with, you will have a consistent seam. If you didn't get a chance to watch my 1/4" video then check out the first mystery blog and watch it.

Another important part of quilting is accurate cutting. When I started quilting I wasn't sure where I was suppose to line up the edge of my fabric with the ruler. Plus each set of rulers looks different. Some have fat lines some have faint lines. If you choose a set of rulers stick with the same name brand set. You wouldn't believe the differences between different company's rulers! You would think an inch is an inch! 

When lining up your fabric edge with the ruler line, be sure to include that thin line. If your original strip or shape is too small then you will not get the size you want no matter how accurate your seams are. Along with rulers is your cutting mat. I never use my mat to cut my strips. Cutting mats are subject to weather conditions and can contract and expand due to heat and cold so they are not always accurate.



The third thing that will affect your blocks is how you line up the edge of your fabrics. Many quilters don't take the time to look at the bottom strip of fabric when sewing. If the edges are not perfectly lined up, those small fractions that are off add up and then you wonder why the seams don't match. Take extra time to peak under your strip as it is being sewed to check to make sure the edges are still together. Here are some examples of bad and good edges when getting ready to sew.

The final technique that will affect the size of your block is pressing. I always finger press my seams before I add heat. By finger pressing you can feel the edge of the seam to make sure there are no pleats and the seam lays nice and flat. Some teachers will tell you to use steam to set your seams, some will tell you to use dry heat. I am one of those that uses dry heat. Using steam can sometimes distort your seams, especially if you "iron" your seams instead of "press" them. Pressing is an up and down motion where ironing is a back and forth action. By pressing straight up and down you do not move the edge of your seam, you end up pressing them flat.

By doing just these little things, you will find that your quilting and seams will match much better. I also use a "measure as you go" method. If my sections don't measure correctly then I will fix them until they do. It is easier to fix them individually than when you have it all put together.

Ashley Hough has a great video to add to some of my tips. You can access it here:

BLOG WINNERS!

Before I discuss the second installment I do want to announce the winner of my previous blog! Congratulations to cmykrgb and Jessica Barrett. The first one of you to respond to me will get to pick which prize they want. If either of you are reading this, please send me your snail mail address using my contact me form in this blog. If neither of you contact me I will draw two new names.

PART 2

Now to the second installment. (Click on Part 2 if you didn't get the instructions.) This week's piecing includes some more Flying Geese units. This time I chose to cut the half-square and quarter-square triangles to make them. Again I used my "Cutting Corners" template set to cut them. First I want to tell you the difference between a half-square and quarter-square triangle and where they are used in blocks and quilts. I know some of you already know this but for those that don't, a half-square triangle is a square cut diagonally into 2 triangles. Each of those triangles has 2 edges that are on the straight of grain of the fabric. Those triangles are typically used in the corners of a block or quilt so that the edges are stable.

A quarter-square triangle is a square cut diagonally into 4 triangles. On this triangle the long edge is the one that is on the straight of grain. These are typically used as setting triangles in a quilt or on the inside of a block. These are the triangles that are in 8 point stars and center of Flying Geese blocks.

Here is how I use my Cutting Corners templates to cut half-square and quarter-square triangles. When cutting half-square triangles you use the triangle template. There is no special math to use. If you have a 2" finished block you just add 1/2" seam and cut a 2-1/2" strip. The corners are already trimmed on the template so you don't have any "rabbit ears" to cut off after you piece them. I use the corner of the template to trim both corners.


To cut the quarter-square triangle you use the same size strip but you use the square to cut it lining up the long line on the ruler to the bottom of the strip.. Again I will use the corner of the triangle to trim off the corners of the triangles.


Here is what your units would look like set next to each other. All you have to do now is line them up, right sides together, one at a time, and sew with your 1/4" seam. Be sure not to stretch your seams and just let the machine do it's work. Press to the small triangles.


They fit on top of each other perfectly.



For the rest of the block, follow the directions for cutting and piecing. Trim where it calls for trimming. I did leave one thing out. On step 6 I forgot to add what the section should measure at. It needs to equal 8" x 15-1/2".

Many of you have ordered my Cutting Corners template set and I appreciate it. If you use it please take time to post photos of you using it on the National Quilter's Circle Facebook feed. If you are still interested in purchasing it you can find it here: Cutting Corners template set.

One other trick I want to tell you about is twisting the seam on the back of the four-patch with the half-square triangles and squares. You can make all the seams go in the same direction on the back (clockwise or counter-clockwise) if you grab the center seams on both side of the center of the block and twist them in opposite directions, (one up and one down) in the same direction as the other seams are going. I know this probably sounds confusing so I will see if I can make a short video of it and post it on FB.

ANOTHER DRAWING

I will have another drawing with this blog. Be sure if you leave a comment you put your email address. If you don't want to leave it in the message, then send me a message in my contact me form letting me know what your comment was. If I can't contact you, you can't win! I will be giving away one more Cutting Corners set and a seam guide. Those international quilters will get to pick one of my patterns in it's place if they are picked.

As always: Do what you love and love what you do. Have fun, enjoy reading, and feel free to share with your quilting friends. Thank you, Toby Lischko

NATIONAL QUILTER'S CIRCLE MEDALLION MYSTERY






Welcome and I am so glad you will be doing my mystery quilt! This is the first time I have designed a mystery pattern. I've done many medallion patterns and block of the month patterns, but never a mystery one. I am so excited to see what everyone comes up with. If you haven't signed up for it or seen the first installment, just click on the heading (Mystery Medallion part 1) above. You have the option of making the large quilt, 83" x 101" or a lap version 65" x 65". The large quilt just has more installments so if you want to make the lap version you will not have to follow it until the end. My goal on this project is for you to have fun doing it. My motto is "Quilting should be fun, not hard!". Be adventurous in your fabric choices. You might surprise yourself.

When choosing fabrics, I always start with a large or main print with lots of colors. That way I can use those colors to pick coordinating prints. I also always like to use a very light and very dark fabric in my quilts for contrast and then pick coordinating prints in different size prints and tones. For some of you who have problems choosing fabrics, use the experts at your local quilt shop or stick with specific fabric collections where everything is already coordinated for you. 

This fabric collection I used to make this quilt is called "Heavenly Hydrangeas" by Sue Zipkin for Clothworks. You might still be able to find some on the internet or in your local quilt shop.

If you don't know what a medallion quilt is, it is a quilt that starts with a large block in the center and then borders are added around it. Some borders may be plain and some may have pieced blocks in them. 

Since NQC released the fabric requirements and first block early I have been unprepared. I was hoping to have my blog done so I could help you make this first block. Some of you have already finished it and what I have seen are all great! I also saw that Ashley posted a video on making Flying Geese sections. She did a great job so take some time to watch it as there may be other Flying Geese sections in this quilt and you may use both methods that she showed throughout this quilt. You can see it here: Ashley Hough Flying Geese tutorial.

I always start any project and lessons, when I am teaching, with the importance of having an accurate and consistent 1/4" seam allowance. Please take time to watch my Youtube video on how I establish my personal 1/4" seam on my sewing machine.



I know everyone has their own method for getting their 1/4" seams and if you are happy with the results of yours by all means, continue what you are doing. If you are not, try this to see if it helps. You don't need to use my little guide but if you do want to purchase it you can find it here: Perfect 1/4" seam guide. It is only $3.50 with $1.00 shipping charge. (US rate.)

I want to also show you one other way to do Flying Geese units using my Cutting Corners template set. I use it in two ways. One is to eliminate the need to draw the line on the backs of the squares when making them with squares and rectangles and the other is to cut accurate half-square and quarter-square triangles.



This first block uses two squares and a rectangle to make the Geese units. Here is how I use this template. After laying the square, right sides together on one side of the rectangle, line up the triangle template along the left edge of the square as illustrated. You can see that the seam line (dotted line) goes through the bottom right corner.



Using your rotary cutter, cut off the corner. Now sew with a 1/4" seam allowance and press towards the small triangle.


Repeat with the other side of the rectangle placing the square right sides together and lining up the template on that side.



If you want to try my Cutting Corners template set, you can find them here: Cutting Corners. In the next blog I will show you how to use the Cutting Corners template set for cutting half-square and quarter-square triangles.

I hope you find my pattern easy to follow. If you don't understand something please contact me and I will help walk you through it.

PRIZE DRAWING

For my first NQC blog post I will be having a drawing for one of my Perfect 1/4" Seam Guides and Cutting Corners template set (two winners). Simply leave a comment to be in the drawing. The first winner who contacts me gets to choose which one they want. For my international friends, since shipping is so high, if they win, I will send them a pdf of a pattern of their choice. I will pick a winner when the next installment comes out.

ISLAND BATIK AUGUST CHALLENGE WINNERS

This summer has been challenging emotionally for me. Working on the Island Batik project has helped me cope with the deterioration of my mother. Usually a very private person, I have had to tell people I work with that I have not been able to keep up with many of the projects that I have had to do. On September 6, my mother passed away. She had a wonderful life. Her and my father had the perfect marriage. He called her his "bride" for over 70 years. She will be missed terribly.

I'm sure many of you have wondered whether or not I have picked any winners that I said I would for all of the blogs related to this challenge. So I will make a quick announcement and give the winners here and email them. If I do not hear from any of them, I will pick new ones.

The first two winners from parts 1 and 2 won some batik fabric bundles. They are Kathleen McMusing and Quilter (she did not leave her name). Congratulations ladies.

The 3rd winner from the final part three is Deb Thuman. She won a fat 8th bundle and my Cutting Corners template set. Congratulations Deb!!!

I did play with some other ideas with this block. I wanted to see what I could design from just the flower tops. These are what I came up with. 



Then I thought about adding another block that was similar to the bottom of the flower.


And the third option was to make a smaller version of the original quilt that I could teach.



So what do you think? Are there any of these versions that you would like to do? I am having templates made of the flower tops so you don't need to make your own and if you don't want to paper piece you don't have to. Would you take this workshop?

Thanks for following me. The Summer Breeze pattern is now available in pdf or printed form now. If you order the printed form, you will get the freezer paper foundation sections to make the quilt. SUMMER BREEZE

Leaving town tomorrow to teach at the AQS show in Virginia Beach. I will mail the prizes when I get back. If you plan to be at the show, please look me up. I will be doing some demonstrations for my book and iQuilt video.

Hearth and Home Block of the Month - Month 1

I design my quilts in EQ!


I frequently work with many of the fabric companies designing quilts to go with their new fabric collections. RJR is one of those companies that I do a lot of commission work for. They always have such beautiful fabrics that are easy to design with. In the beginning of the year they sent me a fabric collection called Family Roots which I immediately started playing with on my EQ8. I had been doing some sampler quilts with some previous companies (Soldier's Quilt) and collections so I thought I would try to do another one. I came upon with this concept. I love using log cabins in quilts and felt that this was an unusual setting that was different than other BOMs that I have seen.

RJR liked it and submitted the design to Missouri Star Quilt Company. They liked it too! So they picked it up and are selling it on their website. It is a nine month series and Missouri Star will be selling the kits each month for the next nine months. There are 13 fabrics in the quilt. Two of them come from a different fabric collection called Falls Majesty. You can purchase the first month's kit here: Hearth and Home BOM.

Each month you will receive the fabric in fat eighths, fat quarters or regular yardage to make the block(s) for that month. The pattern will include instructions for each block. To save me from having to print too many pages, I have designed cutting charts for each of the fabrics in pdf form. To receive the cutting charts you can use the contact form on this page to request them.

Each month I will be doing a short tutorial on piecing one or more of the blocks. If there is more than one technique that I will be discussing, I will divide it up into two or three separate tutorials. I will not be discussing cutting instructions or specific block piecing instructions. Those are in the pattern and you will have to purchase it with the kit if you want to make it.

To start off, before I talk about the blocks, I think it is important to discuss your 1/4" seam allowance. If you have not seen my Youtube video yet, here it is on how to establish an accurate 1/4" seam.



Because most of these blocks have numerous pieces, accuracy is very important. I always set my seam and make a test block with my own fabric. (You don't want to cut up the good fabric yet!) Measure each section for accuracy. It is easier to make adjustments at this level before sewing the parts together. Once you get that established you don't have to make any more test blocks. If you want to purchase my seam guide you can find it here: Perfect 1/4" Seam Guide.

Month 1 includes Blocks 1 and 2 and the connecting block (log cabin).

    

Block 1 has no special instructions. It is basically made of half-square and quarter square triangles sewn together. Just be sure to size up each section to the specifications of the pattern.

Block 2 has Half-Square triangles and Chevrons. The squares for the half-square triangles are cut slightly larger than needed so that once you piece them you can trim the patches down to size. You can either draw a line on the backs of the lighter fabric, sew 1/4" on each side of the line, cut apart and then trim the square to the size listed, or just cut them into triangles, sew them together and then trim it to the size listed. Don't be afraid of sewing on the bias. Just let the sewing machine do it's job and don't stretch the edge as you sew. I always add a pin at the end of the triangle so that the edges stay together when I sew it.

The Chevron patch is made with squares and rectangles. Again you can draw a line on the backs of the squares, sew on the line and then trim the seam to 1/4" or you can use my "Cutting Corners" template set to trim the corners and then sew with a 1/4" seam allowance. You can purchase my Cutting Corners template set here: Cutting Corners. It can be used a lot with the blocks in this quilt. 



I'll save tips for the log cabin connecting block for the next blog. 


DRAWING

As an introduction to this quilt I will be having a drawing for some fat eighths of the collection. If you would like to be in the drawing simply leave a comment at the end of this blog. You do not have to purchase the BOM kit to be in the drawing but you don't want to miss out on making this fantastic quilt! I will draw a name on September 2. Good luck.

As always, do what you love and love what you do. Thank you for reading and be sure to share this with your quilting friends. Toby.

ISLAND BATIK AMBASSADOR AUGUST CHALLENGE PART 3


The Great Outdoors Blog hop

The great outdoors are what inspired the this hop’s theme. Throughout the month of August, our Ambassadors will be featuring Island Batik’s newest fabrics, appearing on shop shelves SOON! See something you like? Ask for it at your local quilt shop, or request it if you don’t yet see it. We have the most delicious collections to share with you!


Today is my day and as usual I was down to the wire. I put the binding on the quilt at 9:00 last night. I don't think I have ever put on a binding on as quick a time as I did this one. ****Be sure to read all the way to the end so you learn how you can be eligible to win a fat quarter batik bundle and my Cutting Corners template set and a strip pack from Island Batik.****

Before I reveal the quilt I want to show how I made the second part of the block. The patches that attaches to the flower have triangles on the ends of them. They are made with squares. You can draw a line on the backs of the squares and sew on the drawn line or you can do what I do and use my "Cutting Corners" template set.

Place the square on the right end of the smaller rectangle strip. Make sure that the edges are perfectly lined up.

Using the triangle in the set, line up the edge of the triangle on the left edge of the square with the top of the triangle even with the top of the square. The diagonal line should go through the bottom right corner.

Using your rotary cutter, trim off the corner and sew with a 1/4" seam.

You will repeat the process with the longer strip except place the strip vertically with the square at the top of the strip. 


You will end up with a left and right strip.


You piece the rest of the block like a log cabin.
                                             
I was working on this quilt during a quilt retreat called "Summer Breeze" so I asked the group what should I call the quilt and they said call it "Summer Breeze" after the retreat! I pieced many of the blocks at the retreat so I laid down the pieces to see what they would look like. ( I was still missing 4 blocks.)


I then thought, what would it look like with white sashing strips? I definitely liked this version better.


After I got home, I finished the blocks and put it on my design wall. I couldn't decide on whether I wanted to put on a border or not so I cut some strips to see what it would look like with a border. I also added four orange corner stones where the flowers came together.

Without borders

With borders

I decided to go ahead with the small border. Here it is on my quilting machine. I decided to quilt the background with small circles to match the border print (which is actually bubbles).


So.......here is the finished quilt! It is 57" square with an 8" block.


A close-up of the quilting


I really had fun making this one. I decided to make a pattern of it so I am offering a special discount if you preorder the pattern. (It will take me a couple weeks to write it.) The pattern will come with enough freezer paper sheets to make the 24 blocks. So for a limited time you can get the pattern for $12 (regular price will be $15 with the foundation papers). I will make the pattern available in pdf form after it is written. It will be $12 regular price.

You can preorder the pattern here: Summer Breeze Pattern.

I used 25 fabrics from the collection. 5 groups of 5 fabrics. It was my surprise bundle in my box from them. You can see the whole collection here:

ISLAND BATIK AUGUST CHALLENGE PART 2

THE GREAT OUTDOOR CHALLENGE


Welcome back! Today I will show you how I get ready to sew my paper pieced patterns and how I use freezer paper as my foundation so I don't have to tear paper off at the end. I know I have shown this in previous blogs but in case you missed them here it is again.

You can use your inkjet printer to print the foundation section on freezer paper. I sell 8-1/2" x 11" sheets on my website (Freezer paper sheets). Before printing on the freezer paper check to see how the paper is fed so that you end up printing on the paper side not the shiny side. Write an "X" on one side of the paper and feed it through. That way you can see which side is being printed on.

The first thing I do is make a template for each of the sections of my foundation. I do this because I want to have as little waste as possible and so that I know the piece I cut will fit properly in the space. I use heavy template plastic for this.



After making the templates I measure the length of the template and cut a strip of fabric that is 1/2" larger than it. Or you can just use scraps as long as they are big enough.

When I cut out the pieces I use an Add-a-Quarter or Add-an-Eighth ruler (also available on my website) all the way around it so that the piece is slightly bigger than the section.




I do this for all of the templates in the set. I try to cut out all of my pieces so that when I am ready to sew, I don't have to stop. (That is if I do the math correct!) Some of the pieces have a right and left section so if I cut them with the fabric wrong sides together, I will get a left and right cut at the same time. Because you don't have to worry about accuracy you can cut multiple layers at a time.




The first step in using freezer paper is to get the iron hot. Then iron the first piece, wrong side of fabric to the shiny side of the paper. Don't hold the iron on too long or it will make the freezer paper hard to remove. (The edge of the fabric is poking out of the edge of the paper.)


Next, fold back the paper along the line between 1 and 2. I used the long template to help crease the paper along that line. Trim your seam to 1/4" using the Add-a-Quarter ruler. The small ledge on the ruler bumps up against the fold of the paper.


Before lining up the next fabric patch right sides together, to the cut edge, I check to make sure that my piece is facing the same direction as the image on the paper. Then I place them right sides together, checking to see that I have fabric covering the seam allowance on both ends.

Now instead of folding the paper back, I leave it folded and sew as close to the fold as possible. I don't have to change my stitch length but I do usually sew at a 2.0. I use an open toe foot so I can see it better and move my needle all the way to the right.



Finger press the fabric along the seam, turn the paper over and then iron that section to the freezer paper.

Repeat this process for every section. I have a mantra I say: "Press, Fold, Trim, Sew". That way I don't forget a step! When I get all of the center pieces on, I go ahead and trim the seam allowance on the last 3 sections to get ready to sew the background on.





Once I have finished my entire section. I place the 1/4" line of the ruler on the 1/4" seam line on the foundation and trim all of the way around. I can then take off my freezer paper and it is ready to use for the next set. Since it has been folded once, I don't need to use a card to fold it along the lines anymore. 

                                   
To make the process go quicker, I will chain sew 4 or 5 at a time, sewing the same section on each time. Here are the 5 different combinations I put together. (It is hard to see the white background against my design wall.)


In the next blog I will show how to sew those little triangles on the ends of the logs using squares and how to put the whole block together.

Be sure to leave a comment if you want to be in a drawing for a batik fabric bundle of this collection. Don't forget to leave some contact information so I can contact you if you get chosen. (USA only due to shipping charges.)

As always: Do what you love and love what you do.
