Assembly

Most projects presented on Quilt around the World consist of several design elements that are joined in the assembly stage. Most assembly articles will contain similar information.

Spitzenstücke Assembly

Spitzenstücke Assembly

The Spitzenstücke quilt consists of four major blocks of differently sized rectangles which don’t present a huge challenge, as such, as most of the sewing is straight piecing. The only difficult part is the set in pieces in block A. If you don’t like setting in pieces, we suggest that you simply cut shape A into two pieces to make the sewing easier. Measurements are given for the version with the inset piece...

Artful Crafts Assembly – Preliminary Remarks

Sashing Block

Before we proceed with sewing the sashing blocks and sashing strips for the Artful Crafts quilt, we decided that a few preliminary remarks would be necessary. You might also have seen in the introductory article that, for the first time, we haven’t given any information about fabric requirements. The reason for this is simple: The quilt consists of five sewn blocks (the Arrow Crown blocks) and four panels. These panels determine the dimensions and layout of the final sashing solution. In the following, we will explain how we calculated for the Artful Crafts quilt...

143 Pyramids Assembly

143 Pyramids Assembly

The 143 Pyramids quilt is a so called One Patch Quilt, i.e. a quilt whose “blocks” are un-pieced identical geometric fabric shapes. The simplest shape is probably the square, but there are one patch quilts made up of rectangles, trapezoids (in the quilting world sometimes called “tumbler”), apple core shapes, and many more...

Layered Leaves I - Assembly

Layered Leaves I - Assembly

Assembling the layers of the Layered Leaves book cover is certainly the most fun part of this project. First, you can play around with the rubbing plate and the paint-stick(s). Then, arranging and re-arranging the multi-coloured leaves brings colour and life to the solid black background. And finally, when everything is covered with bright red tulle, the entire object acquires an almost mystical quality.... (18 August 2011)

Smart Strap

Smart Strap

While it is quite nice to have all the functions of these modern gadgets called Smart Phones, we have never liked the earphones dangling around and catching any clothing or handbag strap which happens to be in the way. You only have to turn round to rip out either the earplug or the connecting cable.

To improve this unsatisfactory state, we designed the Smart Strap. It is a simple, widish strap  worn comfortably around the neck and fastened to the small loop on the Smart Pocket with the help of a carabiner. The show-stopper is an almost invisible tunnel on the outside of the strap which guides the earplug cable from the device upwards towards your ears keeping it neatly stored... (31. Juli 2011)

Other Smart Pockets

Other Smart Pockets

We are delighted to announce that the “Smart Pocket” turned out to be very popular! Not only with quilters, but also with non-quilters who see our pocket whenever we answer our phones. As this is the case, we thought that the pattern should be more versatile and available for more than one type of phone, whether smart or not that smart.

As we cannot provide patterns for every single phone on the market, we hope to show you in this short article how to create your own “customized” pattern... (31 July 2011)
