Bloggers Quilt Festival

 
 

 

The festival begins today over at http://www.amyscreativeside.com/2017/09/18/bloggers-quilt-festival-fall-2017-edition/ , it has been a few years since I entered a quilt! Amy Ellis is so talented and busy but still takes the time to put on the Bloggers Quilt Festival for everyone! Thank you Amy for being so supportive of other Quilt Bloggers and the quilting community!

I appreciate looking at everyone's beautiful quilts and their stories!

Welcome to "In The Boon Docks", I am Lisa, and I spend my time when I can sewing and quilting! I love to blog, so if you see things you like please follow! I have a family and live in the boon docks, at least when we moved to West Virginia from Virginia Beach, Virginia, that is what our oldest daughter would say! She was really tickled when I named the blog. I learned to sew in my late 40s, from some wonderful, patient women at WV Quilt ! Now I mainly learn new techniques by the seat of my pants. I try to share that knowledge with others here and on Lisa Johnson (@intheboondocks) • Instagram. I have sewn for fabric stores, fabric companies and I am an Aurifil Artisan! If I had a dream job this would be it! I also enjoy swapping gifts with other sewists! This Mini Quilt I did for one such swap! Mailing it to someone else is exciting and scary at the same time! Hopefully, she will love it as much as my family does!

We Remember

 

I think this image pretty much sums it up for me!

When we look to the future we have educate the children about what happened on this day so many years ago! Do not hide the fear you felt or the fact the United States of America was attacked by terrorists! As long as there are terrorist there is no peace.

Never Forget!

God Bless America!

Take a moment today and pray for the people in the USA!

Thank you

Lady of the Lake Quilt with Fat Quarter Shop

 

Hello Everyone and welcome to today's featured Quilt: The Lady of the Lake Quilt is part of the Fat Quarter Shop's Classic & Vintage series: with video tutorials! (Click link to see all the tutorials in the series) For those who are unfamiliar with the Classic & Vintage series, they focus on traditional quilt blocks with a modern twist!

 

The fabric I used is Mirage by Alex Anderson and Kona Snow! Sewn with Aurifil 50 wt thread #2021

The Lady of the Lake quilt block is made so easy using "Triangles on a Roll" I love using them! My half square triangles come out perfect every time! They are inexpensive and useful, I can make 2 or 20 in just a few minutes using them. 3" Half Square Triangle Paper Triangles on a Roll #H300 | Fat Quarter Shop

 

 

The complete Lady of the Lake pattern is available for purchase at fatquartershop.com. To make a quilt just like Kimberly Jolly's of the Fat Quarter Shop, they have a Lady of the Lake quilt kit and separate backing set available! Everything all together!

You can also download the FREE block pattern and watch Kimberly’s video tutorial for a step-by-step guide on making the block and go to town!

Either way is great!

Bella Skill Builder Month 8


 

Time sure has wizzed by we are 8 months into the Bella Skillbuilder Quilt and I have learned so much about different techiques and color! I am so glad I hopped on the boat with the Fat Quarter Shop and designer Sherri McConnell! The quilts blocks are all beautiful even though everyone's are different! This is a quilt I would recommend to anyone who wants to learn techniques. All the tutorials and patterns are free! You can buy a kit or not! You will learn so much!

 

The Kit: Bella Skillbuilder Quilt Kits

The Designer: Bella Skillbuilder quilt designer Sherri McConnell from A Quilting Life!

The Pattern: Download the free September 2017 pattern

Tips and Tricks

 

I cut all my strips with the super handy Creative Grids Stripology Squared Ruler Creative Grids #CGRGE2 it doesn't slip and makes cutting a breeze!

This month we are using another great ruler by Creative Grids especially if you like Dresden Plates Creative Grids Starburst 30 Degree Triangle Ruler Creative Grids #CGRISE30

Start with the best thread, I use Aurifil 50 wt. Dove for almost everything, 50wt Aurifil Dove 100% Cotton Mako Spool Thread Aurifil #MK50-2600 | Fat Quarter Shop Start sewing from the tip of the unit! Trim after you sew each unit down or when you are finish it will look like the one below! It is not worth the time to have to rip it all out! Believe me! Trim, trim, trim, the unit seam allowance to avoid the bulk at the end!

I really love how easy these blocks went together and look! I would love to take the time and make a whole quilt out of just these blocks!
