Carol D.'s Finished Building Blocks Quilt

Carol writes, "Here is my completed quilt. I finished it right after we did the baskets as I needed to get on to other projects. After seeing the gorgeous color combos and prints you all have picked, I was a bit mad at myself for going plain. But once it was together, I really like the results and think I like the back the best!! I have really enjoyed this project and have learned soooo much, thanks to Leah and Josh and all of you. Can't wait to see the rest of the finished quilts!"

Seaside Quilter's Building Blocks Quilt

Seaside Quilter writes:

"Thank you Leah and Josh Day for a superb quilt along. There were so many 'firsts' for me - first house block, basket, disappearing nine patch, FMQ straight lines, spirals and circles, joining the blocks ... I've learned such a lot and loved being part of this group which has been so supportive and inspiring.

"I only started patchwork in 2013 so don't have a stash but used left overs from the projects I'd completed last year. The batting is polyester. I used Isacord thread in the top and a cotton Mettler thread in the bobbin. I now have 2 Gidget tables, love the quilting gloves and the supreme slider. I started the blocks on a Bernette 25 then upgraded to an Elna Excellence 760."


Deborah T.'s Finished Building Blocks

Deborah writes, "Thanks so much Leah Day and Josh Day for the great tutorial videos! I started my BBQA in April, finished today 11/24/14. I used material I purchased from JoAnn Fabrics in Cincinnati Ohio, Sulky 100% Viscose Thread (green#1177)."

Leah's Casual Cam - Hand Binding on the Couch

It's still crunch time and I'm ridiculously busy trying to prepare for our Black Friday to Cyber Monday sale and get the Dancing Butterfly Quilt Pattern ready to launch. Yesterday I just couldn't stay on the computer another minute. I plopped down on the couch with an old unfinished project and enjoyed a few hours of relaxing hand binding.


The project I'm finally finishing is Express Your Love and you can still find the free quilt pattern here.

You can also find the Spoonflower Fabric Panel here.

I used Susan Brubaker Knapp's method to bind the quilt with a mitered facing that results in a really beautiful finish on the front of any art quilt. Click Here to find her instructions.

Yes, I'm horribly addicted to Arrow, a super hero series featuring men who like to take their shirts off an awful lot (not that I'm complaining) and women who are either super good or super bad. It's just as fun as Torchwood and Dr. Who, so if you like those shows you'll probably like Arrow too!

So that's it for my lazy Sunday! Today I'm back on the computer and STILL uploading videos for Dancing Butterfly. At least I can see the light at the end of the tunnel - only 9 videos to go!

Let's go quilt,

Leah's Casual Cam - Crunch Time!

I'm so crazy busy right now with so many different things! Here's a casual cam to catch you up on the latest:



Off to upload another video and then go clean up. Things are getting too crazy and the studio is driving me nuts!

Let's go quilt,

Barb B.'s Finished Building Block Quilt

Here we have another beautiful finished Building Block quilt. This one was made by Barbara B.:


Margaret H.'s Finished Building Blocks Quilt

Here is Margaret H's finished Building Blocks:


Margaret writes, "Just to let you know I really enjoyed the project and learned lots of new skills.  I was particularly happy to learn about quilt-as-you-go as I have read about it and was wondering how it worked. I really enjoyed watching Josh do his quilting.  It is very educational to compare the techniques of a beginner with those of an advanced quilter."

Thanks Margaret!
