Sew Out Loud QAL

Hello everybody! Me and Julianna from Sewing Under Rainbow wanted to organize together some blog event. After long planning, finding talented designers and wonderful sponsors we can present you Sew Out Loud Quilt Along:

Witam wszystkich. Polska wersja bedzie zwiezla i dosc krotka. Ja i Julianna z Sewing Under Rainbow chcialysmy organizowac cos wspolnie. Wymyslilysmy 'Sew Out Loud' quiltalong (QAL), czyli 'takie szyj razem z nami'. Tematem jest szycie ze slowami - uzycie materialow w litery, slowa, czy szycie blokow ze slowami PP. No i to wszystko jeszcze dodatkowo zwiazane bedzie z samym tematem szycia. W projekcie bierze udzial 11 blogerek (lista jest ponizej). Kazda z nas zaprojektuje jeden blok zwiazany z tematyka QAL i pokaze tutek do niego. Na 12 blok zorganizujemy konkurs (10 lutego napisze wiecej szczegolow na temat konkursu). Zebralismy wspanialych sponsorow naszego QAL (fotki nagrod ponizej. Zwyciezca konkursu na 12 blok wyloniony przez jurora otrzyma Grand Prize, a 2 ostatnie to nagrody w rozdawajce ktora rozpoczyna sie dzis; szczegoly na koncu postu).


SOL QAL


Eleven bloggers will create a unique 12" block (12.5” unfinished). For the 12th block we will make a contest, so you will be our 12th designer! There will be fabulous prizes to win in the contest and to spice up the competition, the incredibly talented judge will choose the grand winner - sty tuned for the details!

The theme of the QAL is Sew Out Loud {quilters’ wordplay}. Each of the quilt blocks presented by the designers will be related to sewing and words (egg. objects/scene connected with sewing, blocks sewn with wordy fabrics, pieced words connected with sewing, etc.). 

Fat Quarter Shop generously offered to sponsor fabrics for making tutorials during QAL!

Each week you'll find the block instructions available on designer’s blog. Within 2,5 month you will be able to complete the whole quilt top.

Here is the schedule for Sew Out Loud QAL. On the respective date, you will be able to find the block tutorial on the specified blog. You can also check back here anytime, to find links to the tutorials!

  1. I love fabric with lettering on it-Sweetwater in particular. I've got 2 Christmas quilts to make with their fabric and I've made a bag from their Hometown line. I love how the bag turned out. There is a picture of it on my flicker page www.flicker.com/photos/heartsease54

  2. I love text fabric. Great for adding to blocks for interest, I love seeing words fussy cut. I've already joined the group, ideas are already flowing! :-)

    ReplyDelete
  3. Materiały z napisami zbieram od jakiegoś czasu na mój "obrazowy" projekt. Marzy mi się znalezienie słów/liter dla kilku wersów mojej ulubionej piosenki i patchworkowe wykończenie ich :)

    ReplyDelete
  4. super project :) nie moge sie doczekac waszych prac :)
    ja osobiscie niestety zadnych materialow w literki/slowka nie mam.. nie moge na nie nigdzie wpasc jakos :)

    ReplyDelete
  5. ah no i juz wrzucam banerek na bloga :))

    ReplyDelete
  6. Of course, I have text fabrics :o) One, with big letters, waits to become a hand bag and others, with classic newspaper prints are great for backround in blocks or inside of bags.. or just as one of little squares in patchwork projects :o)

    ReplyDelete
  7. I love text fabric too! Not easy to find though I have a little Sweetwater - but I'm always looking for more!
    When I can't find what I want I often stamp the letters onto some fabric instead!

    ReplyDelete
  8. Nie wiem jak to możliwe, ale nie posiadam jeszcze tkanin tekstowych, a szkoda. Fajnie byłoby naszywać fragmenty np. na kosmetyczki albo podkładki pod kubek.

    ReplyDelete
  9. Wstawiłam link z obrazkiem na moim blogu :) Mam nadzieję, że jak najwięcej osób weźmie udział w waszej zabawie, bo na pewno efekty będą zachwycające :) Fajnie będzie popatrzeć. Jak dla mnie to za wysokie progi. Nie bawiłam się jeszcze w quilty. Niewiele wiem na ten temat i umiejętności brak :)

    ReplyDelete
  10. ja też jeszcze nie mam żadnych materiałów z literkami, ale myślę, że można by z nich wyczarować naprawdę fajną torbę:)

    ReplyDelete
  11. Mam prawie literki, bo.. cyferki. Uszyta została torba, pokrowiec na deskę do prasowania (http://skrawkiwolnegoczasu.blogspot.com/search/label/co%C5%9B%20z%20niczego)
    W planach poduchy, podkładki i organizer.
    Już nie mogę się doczekać Waszych pomysłów, bo że Twój będzie jednym z lepszych, to jestem pewna. Ciekawe, czym teraz nas zaskoczysz.
    pozdrowienia

  13. This is going to be so much fun! I have a few texty fabrics, hometown and a few other bits and pieces. I have been hoarding them till now, but this QAL is the perfect time to cut in!! Can't wait!

    ReplyDelete
  14. Czekałam na ten dzień i mam nadzieję,że chociaż raz mi się poszczęści:) Dzięki za szansę wygrania tej cudownej nagrody!!! Wspaniale,że wpadłyście na taki pomysł. EQ7 jest moim niezrealizowanym marzeniem:)
    Tkaninę w literki oczywiście posiadam (w różnych kolorach). Używam ich w połączeniu z innymi tkaninami(w zależności od potrzeby). Nigdy jeszcze nie uszyłam niczego z samej tkaniny w literki.
    Pozdrawiam ciepło:)

    ReplyDelete
  15. This sounds like so much fun. I have some Hometown fabric from Sweetwater with the names of cities on it. I have not yet decided what to do with it yet. I am guessing this QAL will help me solve that problem.

    ReplyDelete
  16. I do have some fabric with text on it but just maybe one FQ and I am not sure what I will use it for. Currently it is just "stash".

    ReplyDelete
  17. I will spread the word for sure. I will tweat, add to FB, add a button to my blog and see what other kinds of shouting I can do. LOL

    ReplyDelete

  21. I've used some Sunkissed text print in a quilt and have a little Sweetwater Hometown and Lakehouse Dry Goods Seed Catalogue fabrics that are very precious and I've been saving for the right project - I think this is it!!
    I love the idea of this QAL and thanks for this wonderful giveaway! The fabrics from Stoffsalon are gorgeous :)

    ReplyDelete
  22. I have a handwriting print that I made into a pillowcase for my daughter. I have a length of the circa 1934 fabric -- you know, with the typewriter letters? Planning a little dress out of that one. Thanks!

    ReplyDelete
  23. Sounds like lots of fun. I have a Sweetwatr charm pack stashed away with text. Maybe this is the perfect project for it

    ReplyDelete
  24. This sounds interesting. I have some music fabric is this text?) stashed away waiting for a gift for my piano-playing husband. I also have a small amount left of a print with french words on it...I'm saving it for something special - perhaps this is it! Or else I'll go and shop for more fabric - nothing wrong with that.

    ReplyDelete
  25. I LOVE word fabric but don't have tons. I have a quilting motif one- which may help in my blocks for this qal and then some sun kissed words :) So excited for this project :) Thanks-

    ReplyDelete
  26. I've not yet done anything with word fabric, but I like many of the prints- looking forward to seeing the blocks you all will come up with!

  27. Zdobyłam kiedyś spory kawałek porządnej gazety z Czeskiej kolekcji Bellus. Na razie oszczędnie nią gospodaruję. Ostatnio kawałek tej gazety trafił na podkładki pod talerze, ale ich 5 minut dopiero nastąpi :)

    Dzięki dziewczyny za zabawę.

  29. W tej chwili w moich szmatkowych zasobach mam tylko jedną tkaninę z napisami i z ubranymi manekinami. Będzie z tego mały quilt do mojej pracowni. Wasz pomysł wspólnej zabawy bardzo mi się podoba i troszeczkę Wam zazdroszczę:) Wspólna praca ma w sobie coś wyjątkowego:) Chętnie stanę w kolejce bo kto nie próbuje ten...
    Pozdrawiam serdecznie

    ReplyDelete
  33. Love fabrics. They make wonderful wall art and room screens. Wonderful for adding texture to solid colored backgrounds. Love them in kitchens and in country cottage settings. Teens like them for that special pop. I love making totes, quick, easy and make a statement..lol! Hugs, Morena

    ReplyDelete
  37. I have lots os fabrics with words and text on it. I am using it right now a lot in making + and x blocks. I also made a pillow for my husband with the sewn in letters to spell LOVE.

    ReplyDelete
  42. What a great idea - a fun way to get better acquainted with paper piecing! I have some Michael Miller with antique hand writing fabric as well as Circa 1934. I am also always on the prowl for intersting fabrics so will post pictures as I find more. :)

  45. I have not been "a quilter" for very long, and have not yet worked with text fabric - I am busy making baby blankets and lap blankets for charity. Would love to win - especially the EQ7!

    ReplyDelete
  46. I have sadly used the last of some amazing alphabet fabric. It was black with white letters of all shapes and sizes and was my all time favorite fabric to slip into baby quilts. I have used it for blocks and borders and am now searching for more (so please let me know anyone if you see some!).

    My computer will not let me submit this so I will try one last time under "anonymous". I can be contacted at: Future Arthritis? on flickr. Cheers.

    ReplyDelete
  47. I haven't purchased text fabric, but I love using words and letters that I create on greeting cards that I send to friends. Here is an example:

    http://www.overthemoonarts.com/wp-content/uploads/2011/04/purple-daisy-atc.jpg

    I also collect fortunes from fortune cookies - I have and idea for an art quilt where I can use a lot of them!

    Sounds like a wonderful quilt along! All the best - Chris

    ReplyDelete
  50. I have a few Japanese FQ's with text and I am making a small quilt with them now. Excited for this quilt along!

    ReplyDelete
  51. I have some Sweetwater Hometown fabric on it with words. I love it. I'm not using it yet. I'm still hoarding it. I have to do that for a while with a beloved fabric. I also recently bought an Alice in Wonderland border print from Spoonflower and what I love at least as much as the border is the text of the page from the story that is above the border image. It's big print and in the same lettering as the book. LOVE IT! Again ... hoarding for now.

    ReplyDelete
  52. I have some Sweetwater fabric with words and I've been scoping out a few other prints online. What is it about wordy fabric that's so appealing?!

    ReplyDelete
  53. I don't have any suitable fabrics, perhaps I should spend more time paying attention to which fabrics Badskirt-Amy has been playing with of late?!

    ReplyDelete
  54. I've been very inspired lately to use text fabrics in my sewing. I've started collecting some and using them in my blocks for the Cocorico Bee on Flickr. I'm also planning on using them for some bags and pillows :)

    ReplyDelete
  55. I don't have much word fabric, but I have wanted to start collecting it over the past year. I have started looking for it more and more.

    ReplyDelete
  56. I really do not think I have any text fabric right now, but may soon have some. I once made a quilt with some cute fabric with houses on it that had the phrase "home is where the heart is" on it, but I have not worked with exclusively text fabric before. Also I made gift bags with sport team fabric, and those had some words, but again the focus of the fabric was not the text per se.

    ReplyDelete
  57. yes indeed! im currently using text prints! im making a baby quilt...a 'story book' village...all the houses are made of text fabrics and i plan to quilt it in book suggestions! hope it turns out like i imagine! this looks like a lot of fun!

    ReplyDelete
  58. Way too much Awesomeness! I'm so excited.
    I actually don't own much fabric with text. But I have this one with different coffee/tea drinks on it and I love to use it for mug rugs. It just fits in so perfectly and I can tailor it to whom I'm making it for.
    ...my fingers are crossed...

  69. I have quite a few fabrics with text as I am incorporating it in a quilt for my daughter who just graduated with her Masters in Creative Writing.

  72. I'm a huge fan of text fabric and I try to use a little bit in almost every project. Right now I'm big into paper-piecing and smaller craft sewing, but I love working on larger quilt projects as well. I really love Japanese prints by Kumiko Fujita and Suzuko Koseki and am happy to see more designers using text in their fabrics.

    ReplyDelete

  83. I've been collecting fabrics with text on them for years now. Most of it is handwriting style. I used to try to put at least one piece in every quilt I made, but I have gotten away from that lately.

    I made my bathroom curtains from Sweetwater's Authentic text canvas. Love them!

    ReplyDelete

    ReplyDelete
  93. I have some of the Hometown fabric with words, which will eventually be used in my Farmer's Wife Quilt-when it is actually started! Must finish Swoon first!

    ReplyDelete
  94. I didn't think i had much at all, but actually there are a number of typographical prints that have made it into the eye-spy quilt I'm piecing for my son.

    I do have some texty charms and yardage from French General's La Petite Ecole, which i take out and lovingly stroke every so often. It will be part of a beautiful something someday...

    ReplyDelete
  95. I LOVE text fabric, but it is hard to find. I always buy a lot when I find some, just for that reason. At the moment I have some lovely stuff that is cursive and on ivory.
    I'm looking forward to your tutorials since I have NEVER paper-pieced before!
    thanks for the giveaway!

    ReplyDelete
  96. I have a charm pack of Pure by Sweetwater and I want to make an apron out of it. thanks!

  97. Nie posiadam żadnych tekstowych materiałów, ale zbieram ciągle selvages i myślę nad ułożeniem z tego czegoś ciekawego :) Tekstowych tkanin używałabym chętnie na podkładkach, to małe rzeczy które łatwo spersonalizować odpowiednim słowem.

  99. I have a fq of Michael Miller fabric with text, birds and butterflies that I was given as a present. I finally set to with scissors and made a book cover. It is amazing but I really need to find a use for the left overs so am really excited about the qal. Janette

    ReplyDelete
  100. Thanks for the chance at the giveaway. I think fabric with text on it is adorable, but the only fabric I have is something with a huge alphabet on it! I was thinking just this morning that I should copy a bunch of my husband's grandmother's quotes and/or recipes in her own hand to trace on a dishtowel for the kitchen. Here's my favorite: "I champion the right to be myself; dare to be different and set my own pattern. Live my life and follow my own star." ~Vivienne

    ReplyDelete
  101. I have collected fabric with the text all last year and have some lovely ones now. I used some of them in my In a Spin quilt top which you can see here:

  102. I love good text prints and I think quilter's wordplay sounds like such a great project. I'll dip in now and then if I may ... I adore typography and I have a little stash of prints. I also love the idea of printing some myself.

  118. I have been collecting fabric with words on them for about 5 years now. I want to make the bookshelf quilt. Fabric with words and fabric with dots seem to call to me :)

    ReplyDelete
  119. Mam materiały z literkami/napisami.
    A używam ich... właściwie do wszystkiego! Oby mi tylko kolorystycznie pasowało. Najładniej wyglądają na makatkach i okładkach na zeszyty oraz na zakładkach.

  141. I have some charm squares with words on them and I'd like to include them in a set of small bags that I will use for traveling.
    Just two days ago I received a package from Mr.B's Preview Pack Club (Benartex Fabrics). (These packages arrive 4 times a year). In it are charm squares and 10" squares of the Cool School line of fabrics. Some have letters and the larger squares have words such as "no bully zone!" and what constitutes bullying. A great line of fabric to promote being nicer to people.

    ReplyDelete
  142. My only fabric with text is flannels strangely enough, even though I love typography. I use these making receiving blankets and burp cloths as baby shower gifts.

    ReplyDelete

  171. wonderful fabulous idea for a QAL! I have adored text prints for a long time (since my scrapbooking days!) and I enjoy seeing them used in the brilliant work of Kerry from verykerryberry and other fabulously talented paper piecers! I have some text fabrics from Japan, Cosmo Cricket, and Sweetwater. I would use them in paper piecing projects that I have lined up.

    Thanks for the chance to win these great prizes!

  175. Mam kilkanaście tkanin ze słowami, fragmentami gazet - kolekcjonuję je namiętnie już od dłuższego czasu. Do tej pory uszyłam torebkę z gazetowymi motywami, podkładki pod talerze, ocieplacze do imbryków, męską kosmetyczkę a ostatnio poszewki na poduszki. I mam jeszcze wiele planów związanych z tymi tkaninami...
