Vintage Embroidery Monday & Stitchery Link Party #59

Posted by Super Mom No Cape on May 23rd, 2016

Here in Canada, we have a long weekend so…

Happy Victoria Day to all my Canadian readers!

Next Monday is the Memorial Day long weekend in the United States. When we lived in the States, many of our friends and neighbors liked to decorate for Memorial Day and then leave the decorations up right through until Independence Day. I loved seeing all the patriotic displays!

Recently I was fortunate enough to find a small collection of vintage Workbasket patterns depicting US flags, eagles, the Liberty bell plus more.

One of those patterns was this United States Coat of Arms, also known as the Great Seal of the United States.

You’d have to hurry to stitch it in time for Memorial Day but there’s more than enough time to finish it to have to display for July 4th!

Stitcher Link Party ButtonWelcome to Stitchery Link Party #59

For those who are newly subscribed or are visiting for the first time, every Monday I host a link party in which I invite others to share their hand embroidery projects.

If you’ve never linked up to a link party before and would like to join in, I’ve written a quick tutorial on How to Link Up to a Link Party.  It provides step-by-step instructions for linking to this party (or any other link party you might like to participate in.)

The rules for the Stitchery Link Party are simple:

1. The project can be anything as long as it includes hand embroidery stitches in some form. Such projects might be but are not limited to redwork, blackwork, goldwork, bluework, (etc), counted cross-stitch, crazy quilting, crewel, silk ribbon, pulled thread, hardanger and sashiko.

These projects do not have to be vintage or vintage inspired. All styles are welcome as long as it’s hand embroidered.

2. Link directly to your blog post, not to your blog home page.

3. If you happen to sell your embroidery or embroidery patterns, feel free to link up to a blog post you’ve written about a project you’re selling, but No direct links to shops or websites selling things.

4. This will be a curated link party. In other words, if a link does not conform to the three simple rules above, it will be removed.

The next three are more requests than rules. They are by no means a requirement to take part in the party:

5. Please link back to the Stitchery Link Party with a text link somewhere in your post. Or if you’d prefer you can use the cool button that our son designed for me.

Simply copy and paste the code you’ll find under the button in my left side bar. You can add it to your post or to the sidebar of your blog.

6. As well, please share the love and visit one or two (or more) of the other links and take time to leave a comment.

7. It would be wonderful if you decided to follow me but it’s not necessary in order to take part in the link party.

Vintage Embroidery Monday & Stitchery Link Party #58

Posted by Super Mom No Cape on May 16th, 2016

Happy Monday to everyone stopping by today!

Continuing on with last week’s theme of cross-stitch suitable for any upcoming weddings you might be making gifts for, wouldn’t this make a lovely gift for the newlyweds to display in their home.

To make it extra special, you could take last week’s alphabet and replace the leaves on the flowers with the bride’s and groom’s initials.

Or if you are stitching it for a milestone anniversary such as a 20th or 30th, you could even replace some of the leaves on the tree with their children’s initials… sort of like a family tree.

Maple Leaf Block Tutorial

Posted by Super Mom No Cape on May 14th, 2016

The following tutorial will yield two 12 ½” (unfinished size) Maple Leaf quilt blocks from 2 fat quarters (or yardage of your choice.)

Maple Leaf Quilt Block Tutorial

 

Begin by cutting:

1 – 10 ¼” square from main fabric

1 – 10 ¼” square from white (or low volume fabric)

6 – 4 ½” squares of main fabric

4 – 4 ½” squares of white fabric

2 – 2″X7″ rectangles of main fabric

Maple Leaf Blocks - Step 1: Cut your fabric

To make the half square triangles:

Draw two intersecting diagonal lines on the 10 ¼” white square.

Maple Leaf Blocks - Step 2 Draw 2 diagonal lines forming an X

Place the red 10 ¼” square and white 10 ¼” square right sides together. Stitch ¼” seam on either side of each line.

Maple Leaf Blocks - Step 3A Stitch a quarter of an inch on either side of the drawn lines

If you look closely at the photos below you can see what the stitched lines should look like.

Maple Leaf Blocks - Step 3B

Now… being careful not to move the block between cuts… cut on the drawn lines.

Then cut in half vertically and again in half horizontally as shown.

You will be cutting through the center point 4 times.

For the third and fourth cuts (bottom two photos) make sure to have your ruler lined up so that it is square and the side you will be cutting along lines up with where your stitching lines intersect.

Maple Leaf Blocks - Step 4 Cut as indicated in the photo

Once you’ve made your cuts, it will look like this.

Maple Leaf Blocks - Step 5

Flip them open and like magic you have 8 half square triangles!

Maple Leaf Blocks - Step 5A

Press each hst with the seam towards the red fabric.

Square up them up to 4 ½”

Maple Leaf Blocks - Step 5B square up the hsts to 4 and a half inches

Maple Leaf Blocks - Step 5C

Set the hsts aside for now.

To make the stem of the leaf:

Cut two of the 4 ½” white squares in half on the diagonal.

Maple Leaf Blocks - Step 6 Cut square on the diagonal forming two triangle

This is give you 4 equilateral triangles.

Maple Leaf Blocks - Step 6-1

Place a pin at the half way point on the long side of one triangle and match it to the half way point of one red 2″X7″ rectangle as in the photo.

Maple Leaf Blocks - Step 6A Center the triangle on the rectangle

Sew using a scant ¼” seam allowance.

Note: In the photo below you may notice that I’ve switched back to my regular presser foot and added an adhesive block to act as my scant ¼” seam guide. I find this method much more accurate than using the edge of my ¼” presser foot. But use whatever method works best for you.

Maple Leaf Blocks - Step 6B Stitch using a quarter inch seam allowance

Sew the second triangle to the other side of the red rectangle in the same manner.

Repeat these steps to make a second stem.

You will have 2 blocks that look like this:

Maple Leaf Blocks - Step 6C

Now I have a little trick to show you to make it easy to square up those stem blocks.

Fold each block in half along the middle of the stem as shown and press along the fold.

Maple Leaf Blocks - Step 6D Fold right sides together as indicated

Next… line the 45º line of your ruler up along the ironed crease and continue to square up as usual.

Maple Leaf Blocks - Step 6E Line up the rule on the ironed crease and square up the blocks to 4 and a half inches

Maple Leaf Blocks - Step 6F

To assemble the maple leaf blocks:

Lay the blocks out according to the photo.

Maple Leaf Blocks - Step 7 Lay your blocks out as indicated

Flip the right hand blocks over onto the middle blocks and sew using a scant ¼” seam.

Maple Leaf Blocks - Step 7A Flip the row on the right onto the middle row and sew

Lay them back down in order so the blocks again look like maple leaves.

Maple Leaf Blocks - Step 7B

This time flip the left hand blocks over onto the middle blocks and sew.

Maple Leaf Blocks - Step 7C flip the row on the left onto the middle row and sew

Press seams as indicated in the photo so the when you sew your rows together the seams will nest.

Maple Leaf Blocks - Step 8 Press the seams in opposite directions as indicated

Maple Leaf Blocks - Step 9A

Flip the top row down onto the middle row. Pin and sew.

Maple Leaf Blocks - Step 9B Flip the top row down onto middle row and sew

Here’s another little trick:

To help make sure you don’t lose the points of the hsts… as you approach the point where the seams intersect (see the arrows,) sew just inside or to the right of that point.

Maple Leaf Blocks - Step 9C Easy trick to make sure you don't cut off your points

Maple Leaf Blocks - Step 10

Flip the bottom row up onto the middle row. Pin and sew.

Maple Leaf Blocks - Step 10A Flip the bottom row up over the middle row and sew

Press seams towards the middle row.

You now have two completed maple leaf blocks.

Quilts for Fort McMurray

Posted by Super Mom No Cape on May 14th, 2016

Can you imagine what it would be like to have to leave your home with only a moments notice? You don’t even have time to pack a bag… not even so much as a toothbrush?

When we lived in Florida, we evacuated several times for hurricanes and tropical storms. We lived in a double-wide mobile home. A nice double-wide but a mobile home nonetheless. I’d seen what hurricanes could do to them.

We never sheltered in place. We always evacuated. I know all too well that feeling of wondering if our home would be there when we returned or if we’d go back to nothing.

By now many of you will have heard about the devastating wild fires that swept through Fort McMurray, Alberta last week causing the evacuation of the entire city of 80,000 people.

In Florida, we always had advance notice that an evacuation might be necessary. We had time to prepare. Time to pack. Time to gather our children from wherever they were and make sure we were all together and ready to leave.

The people in Fort McMurray didn’t have that luxury.

Even more than a week later, many don’t know if their home is one of the ones that the fires spared. Many don’t know if they will have jobs to go back to.

Dave and I have made our donations to the Red Cross and will donate more to local Fort McMurray organizations once people are allowed to return but in situations like this a person always wishes there was something more concrete, more tangible they could do to help.

So when I read the post from Stacey @slostudio on Instagram asking for Maple Leaf Quilt blocks, I knew I had to make some.

Maple Leaf Blocks After Pressing

Can you spare 2 fat quarters and an hour of your time?

If so, I’d like to encourage you to make some as well.

And to help with that, I’ve written a step-by-step tutorial that will give you two 12 ½” Maple Leaf quilt blocks that you can donate.

Click on the photo to be taken to the tutorial!

Maple Leaf Quilt Block TutorialThey don’t have to be red and white. You can use any of the colors in the Alberta flag (pictured above) to make them.

Then once you’ve made your blocks, here’s the info from Stacey’s blog of where to send them.

“Along with some others from the Ottawa Modern Quilt Guild, I am collecting quilt blocks to make quilts that will be sent to those who have lost their homes in Fort McMurray. We would be grateful for blocks that you might be able to contribute:

  • * Maple Leaf quilt blocks at 12.5″ square (unfinished; so they can be joined and finish at 12″ square)
  • * Colours can include blue, yellow, green, red and white (like the Alberta flag) but two-colour blocks are preferred (i.e., use two of these colours in combination, like blue/yellow); any mix of print or solid fabrics are fine
  • * Use any Maple Leaf pattern you’d like, or you can make an improvised leaf block – it’s up to you. Here are some examples of 12.5″ unfinished Maple Leaf tutorials online:

Please mail blocks by June 30, 2016 to:

Quilts for Fort McMurray, c/o Mad About Patchwork, 2477 Huntley Road Stittsville ON, K2S 1B8, CANADA

If you are in the Ottawa area, you can drop blocks off in person to Mad About Patchwork.”

Vintage Embroidery Monday & Stitchery Link Party #57

Posted by Super Mom No Cape on May 9th, 2016

With graduation and spring and summer wedding season starting, I thought now might be a good time to share another Alphabet.

Vintage Workbasket Embroidery Pattern - Cross-Stitch Alphabet

Use them to stitch a set of labels for the grad going off to college in the fall. The labels could then be sewn onto linens so that they can be easily identified if something gets forgotten in the communal laundry room.

And how sweet would they be embroidered onto a lace trimmed handkerchief with the brides new initials.

One of the things, I love about alphabets is that they can be added to so many other projects… such as these two cross-stitch patterns that I’ve shared in the past: Now I Lay Me Down To Sleep wallhanging and this cute set of smaller motifs.

Catching Up – In Our Garden

Posted by Super Mom No Cape on May 8th, 2016

Happy Mother’s Day

To all the mothers out there!

And Happy Sunday!

It’s a beautiful day here today so this mother is going to be visiting some garden centers and then adding flowers to the gardens at our new house. We have a lovely big yard here and lots of small gardens scattered throughout for me to play in.

It’s been such fun to see what’s coming up in them and then planning to fill in where needed. I was especially delighted to find this rhubarb patch!

Rhubarb in the House Garden

In just a month, it has grown so much. I can’t wait for the stalks to be big enough to start harvesting!

Rhubarb Crisp is a personal favorite. And if the patch does well over the next few months… by the end of the summer, I’m planning on making and canning Rhubarb Relish.

Then once I’ve played in the yard for a bit, I’m going to go up to my sewing room/office and work on a different kind of garden.

It’s time for me to get caught up making the In Our Garden BOM blocks.

I’ve started working on April’s applique block. I’m hoping to have it done in a couple more days so I can share, but for now here’s a sneak peak of one of the flowers:

Happy Little Applique Flower

Isn’t it adorable!! That little smiling flower makes me smile too!

And once I get April’s blocks finished, it will be time to work on May’s.

Carla over at Creatin’ in the Sticks has designed two beautiful blocks for this month. Her applique block, appropriately named Bird Bath, features a bird bath and two plumb little birds that have come for a visit.

The pieced block, called Flower Box, has a large center block perfect for a floral focus fabric.

Hop on over to Carla’s blog to find out how to get May’s In Our Garden blocks.

Oh and while you’re there, don’t forget to enter for your chance to win a $25 Gift Certificate from Fat Quarter Shop!

 

Just a few more weeks and it will be my turn to share the blocks I’ve designed for June. I can’t wait to share them with you!

Vintage Embroidery Monday & Stitchery Link Party #56

Last week, I shared an adorable little boy singing his heart out in celebration of Cinco De Mayo. This week, that same little boy is on his way home.

Oh and look… he’s picked a flower. I wonder who it’s for?

With Mother’s Day coming up next Sunday it must be for his Mom!

Vintage Embroidery Monday & Stitchery Link Party #55

Posted by Super Mom No Cape on April 25th, 2016

I was first introduced to the celebration of Cinco De Mayo the first spring that we lived on the Hawaiian island of Maui. Hawaii prides itself not only on it’s Native Hawaiian and Polynesian heritage but it’s cultural diversity. All across the islands on May 5th you’ll see people celebrating Cinco De Mayo with their friends and neighbors of Mexican descent.

I thought it would be fun this week and next week to share a couple of patterns that could be stitched to add to any Cinco De Mayo decorating you may be doing.

Vintage Embroidery Monday & Stitchery Link Party #54

Posted by Super Mom No Cape on April 18th, 2016

I think almost everyone here in Southwestern Ontario was feeling as light-hearted and happy as these two children.

Vintage Workbasket Embroidery Pattern of Children Dancing

The weather this past weekend was absolutely beautiful. For the first time in months, we’ve been able to venture outside without a jacket. In fact… if you weren’t careful, you might even have gotten a sunburn!

Such an incredible change in weather from the previous weekend when we had snow and ice.

Everywhere I went, people were out working in their yards and in the evenings the smell of grilling/bbq drifted on the air.

Let’s hope that spring is finally here to stay!
