😃How are ya doing with the #elegantoasisqal? I hope everyone is having fun, and remember, if you don’t do this today, that is a-okay. There isn’t a timeline here. No pressure, no expectations, just a goal of having fun, making something beautiful, and learning something along the way. ☺️ The slides above are the rest of my instructions for making the #elegantoasisquilt block, a #ladykquiltsdesigns pattern by me. 🌻Check my last post for all the cutting instructions and HST assembly guide. ✂️

📣Here we go!! I’m so excited to kick off the #elegantoasisqal, a FREE quilt along here on #Instagram! 🎉 My name is Karen aka Lady K, and I love fabric and making quilts. 🌼 So grab your large florals & prints, accent and background fabrics, and let’s get cutting and stitching. The three slides above will get you started with cutting fabrics, and stitching your HSTs together. ✂️
Later today I will post the rest of the slides you’ll need for assembling the #elegantoasisquilt blocks. 😉 •

By no means is this #quiltalong under any timeline, requirements, or restrictions. It’s just about making something beautiful and having fun with this amazing IG community while doing so. Oh, and maybe learning something along the way. I’ll be posting #tipsandtricks that I either use in everything I stitch up, or discovered while creating this pattern and sewing up the blocks myself. I’ll be posting them over on my blog so I don’t fill up your feed here. Tap the link in my bio to check them out. There you’ll also find the fabric requirements and a FREE coloring page of the 9-block quilt (a downloadable and printable PDF). •
•
If you do #qal with me, I hope you’ll post pics of your beautiful creations here on IG and use #elegantoasisqal so I can see everything in one place. Thank you!!

Have fun, relax, remember it’s just fabric & thread, and make something you love!! 💖

I've kept this quilt a secret, but it's time to unveil it! I've been a bit obsessed with sunrises and sunsets. I designed this quilt at the same time as my #sunsalutationsquilt . After that half square triangle version, I thought it would be fun to do a curved version. Meet my Kona Sunset quilt!
..... Will you be at QuiltCon? If so, you can see it in person at the Paintbrush Studios booth. Be sure to stop by and take a selfie with it and enter for a chance to win a fat quarter bundle of some of the fabrics I used along with one of my patterns. All the entry details will be in the booth.
.....
Sun Salutations is made with @pbstudiofabrics solids, pieced and quilted with @aurifilthread and binding is warm and natural by @thewarmco

Finished!! The February @aurifilthread BOM designed by @bluenickelstudios was super cool. It was challenging but rewarding to complete! Mine meaisired exactly the right size. I used the @sewverysmoothllc #idealseamguide and my @berninausa #BERNINA790plus

I’m setting aside 30 minutes to finally attach this gorgeous button to my @suespargo sewing roll. It’s been 98% finished since 1 Jan 2018. @arianezurcher has spurred me into action. Check out her completed sewing roll. #suespargo #needleroll #sewingroll #aurifil #aurifilartisan #brightbouquetsewingroll #inspirationsmagazine @inspirationsstudios

Making the @aurifilthread BOM by @bluenickelstudios on my @berninausa and keeping my seam allowance at a scant 1/4” with my @sewverysmoothllc #idealseam guide. Did you know I’ve got a video on how to use this handy little Notion?!? Follow link in profile to YouTube. .

how cute is this pincushion retreat favor we received at the #mcmqgretreat2018 yesterday? Special thanks to @aurifilthread @byhilaryjordan and our #aurifilartisan @twiggyandopal for the thread, and to @musiccitymqg and @kecollins6 for all the rest 👏🏼 #musiccitymqg #nashvillequilters

You know why I love ❤️#Aurifil thread because it is Strong 💪! It stands up against the rugged play of children and keeps the stitches together! Besides it has so many beautiful colors! #aurifilthread #aurifil50wt #aurifilartisan

I should be packing but instead I'm making EPP templates on my new Cricut Maker. Does it count that what I m making will be packed so I have handwork to do while traveling to Pasadena and beyond?

I’ve been working on step images today for the #elegantoasisqal that I’m kicking off this Monday, February 19th. In order to do that I had to make another #elegantoasisquilt block. Darn. 😉 I absolutely love how this one turned out with that rich lavender/cocoa color in the background of the large #outbackwifefabric print and then those little purple and lavender florals in the accent triangles. 💜 And I’m not even a purple fan! ☺️ •
•
I’ve read every comment I’ve seen on my posts, @gertrudemade & @aurifilthread reposts the other day, and a couple of my pattern testers posts, @elisabew, @shawnahaynes, @raebirdrhi, & @pickingdaisiesinslo, and my heart is full. 💖 I’m excited and full of inspiration and drive to bring this pattern of mine to you. I hope y’all enjoy making your own beautiful versions and I can’t wait to see them. 🌷If by chance you are hoping to get some of these gorgeous fabrics for yourself, my bestie Kristen @circa15fabricstudio still has some in stock. It only arrived in her shop on Tuesday but between preorders and new orders, she’s already running low. Go check her out. Her shop link is in her BIO. 📲

If you didn’t see my post yesterday, I provided fabric measurements for the pattern so you can get your fabric pull or purchases from your local quilt shop in order this weekend. 👌🏻

We're loving this color combo from #AurifilArtisan Shannon Orr of @evabmakery. Can't wait to see her new fabrics that these pair with. ❤️ ________________________________________

💕I decided to add some hand stitches in 12wt @aurifilthread (no 2692) to my #winterstarquilt test block and turn it into a second squishy but pretty #libertyfabric cushion 🎀 Liberty cheater print is from @alicecarolinefabrics and the lovely quilt pattern is by @shannonfraserdesigns 💕 #quiltblock #aurifilthread #aurifilartisan

I’m happy to share that my quilt inspired by the song “Little Lies” by @imwithherband is featured in the March/April issue of Modern Patchwork! Today also happens to be the day @imwithherband releases their first full length album “See You Around.” So make sure to pick up the new Modern Patchwork AND the incredible new I’m With Her album! If you need me today, I’ll be spinning their new tracks on heeeeeavy rotation. (Quilt is made with Chroma by @alisonglass and black Essex Yarn Dyed Linen by @robertkaufman, and stitched with @aurifilthread on my beloved @berninausa.)

Happy Friday! I've had to keep this quilt a secret for a while (if you go back to photos on my feed from last fall you'll see glimpses of it). I didn't have a chance to photograph it before shipping it out, but you can see it in the March/April issue of Modern Patchwork and at QuiltCon!

Three of my quilts are going to the #TheDubaiQuiltShow this year!!! Sending quilts off feels almost the same as sending off my child all by himself.
Say hi to them if you are visiting! #Aurifil #AurifilArtisan #AurifilThreads #Bernina #HavelsSewing

I'm very much looking forward to using this combination of color goodness! Aurifil Sand (2326), Yellow Orange (2145), Dusty Orange (1154) and Magenta (2535). I can't show you the quilt at this time. I'm hoping it will be worth the wait!! #twiggyandopal @aurifilthread #aurifilthread #aurifilartisan #threadmatters #machinequilting

Happy Valentine's Day / Galentine's Day / Palentine's Day — whatever you want to call it! Here is my latest Modern Love quilt, a scrappy rainbow wall/mini version constructed entirely from my stash and quilted with various colors of Aurifl 50wt. I hope you all have a great day! xoxo, Sheri

Made recently for a dear friend, and a note to self and all. ⛅️ It's a strange week for the quilting world, but, as they say, "there will always be better days." Surrounded by one of my favorite @annamariahorner fabrics (#modcorsage) and lots of #freemotionquilting. Lyric is from the song "Library Magic" by @theheadandtheheart. More on my blog tonight - link in bio. #theheadandtheheart #quiltingwordswithfreemotion #aurifil #aurifilartisan #freespiritfabrics #annamariahorner
