Iron-on vinyl (HTV) T-shirt is a snap!

IMG_4861 I’ve just uploaded PART ONE of creating a really cool t-shirt using FREE files from Cricut Design Space. If you don’t use Cricut, I’m sure there are free images online for something similar.

Anyhooo, since I really do love these mountains, I wanted to create this shirt (and at the same time help new folks with their use of HTV).

PART TWO is a demonstration of actually applying the vinyl (in this case Flock vinyl) to the shirt.

Here is my Amazon link to the press I’ve used in PART TWO.

Block of the Week

PattyAnne’s BOW #5 – MODA Cupcake Intro, Cutting, Stitching and Quilting

This block has been interesting. I’m not sure I’d really want to do a ‘ton’ of them because it may be easier to just do “normal” half square triangles??

What do you think?  Thumbs up or thumbs down? Leave a comment and let me know.

The one thing that I DID like was that I really didn’t have to think…. it was a Zen kinda sewing and that’s a GREAT thing some days!

Want to try them?  Here’s a link.

Block of the Week

LOTS of BOWs in the cue

Sooooo, I have a few BOWs cued up including this block (shhhh….take a sneak peek of it on my Electric Quilt screen).  Fabrics are First Mate by Northcott.

I’ve got lots of cool blocks planned. Some are traditional and others are not. For example, for one of the non-traditional blocks, we will do  flower pounding in July.  I will demo how to do the flower pounding technique and show ways to enhance your block with thread painting.

Thanks so much for tuning in.  Please share my blog/YouTube/facebook with your buddies.

PS If you’re wondering about that JUMBO microphone in my photo….. I used to podcast for Archie Comics and that is the mic I used.  It’s great for eliminating noisy feedback. 🙂


Let's plan our quilting! · Road to Oklahoma

And now for my favorite part….the QUILTING.  For this block, I use both the walking foot and the free motion foot.

If you have an idea on how you’d like this to be quilted,  please share!!

Road to Oklahoma

PattyAnne’s BOW #4 Part 2 – Road to Oklahoma – Marking & Cutting Fabric

​​I LOVE the fabric used for this block – especially the blue with the little gold flecks. I love a bit of bling!!💕

The cutting for this block is pretty straightforward. If you go to my previous blog post, I have written out the cutting dimensions for you.

As mentioned in the notes for the video, if you’d like to use the same fabrics that I’ve used, you can purchase a fat quarter bundle from Christa Quilts here.

Next on to BOW #3 Part Three where we plan our quilting strategy AND quilt the block.  See you there!!

Road to Oklahoma

PattyAnne’s BOW #4 Part 1 Intro – Road to Oklahoma

In this video,  variations of the Road to Oklahoma four-block layout are shown.  As mentioned in the video, the final four-block quilt measures 20″ x 20″ – a perfect size for a table topper or a wall-hanging.

Cutting directions for EACH of the 9″ x 9″ blocks:

  • Cut 4 squares 2 3/4″ x 2 3/4″  (green blue and white fabrics)
  • Cut 2 squares 2 1/8″ x 2 1/8″ (green and blue fabrics)

Tune in to Part 2 where we will cut and sew the block.

Next, on to Part 3 where we will plan the free motion quilting, plan the walking foot portion of the quilting AND actually quilt the block.
