We just got finished up with baseball and softball for our kiddos
 
So baseball is on the brain and we wanted to share with you our favorite baseball baby blanket and how it was sewn.
 

 

Our favorite classic quilt for boys would have to be the sports rag quilt in navy blue and gray, but we love just as much when we have a special request to change the colors


 A quick video on how to sew the Easy Peasy Rag Quilt Pattern by A Vision to Remember. It also includes a fun variation on the pattern by adding raw edge appliqued baseballs, baseball mits, and baseball bats.

How to Thread a Needle Easily

Did you know 
...
That needles have a front and back?

I didn't either.

But they do. 


Watch as we easily thread a needle. 




 

One last thing...

Get the needle eye wet (a little spit didn't hurt any needle)

It will help so much!Image HTML map generator

How to Thread a Juki DDL-8700 Sewing Machine

When I first began sewing rag quilts for a living, I went through so many needles. I could have bought stock in Schmetz!

No joke! 

I bought the thickest needles I could find in my local big box craft stores. The typical Universal 90/14.

But I still broke needles. 

Every time I broke a needle I would:

  1. Stop sewing (duh)
  2. Change needle
  3. Clean out anywhere the broken part of the needle could have ended up
  4. Checked the seam in the quilt for any remnants of needle.
  5. Began sewing again

This process could take several minutes each time. I knew exactly where I would break the needles (always where 4 seams would cross at). Rag quilts can be bulky to sew through as they are made by sewing quilt back, flannel batting, and quilt top together at the same time. So where seams would meet I could be sewing through 6 layers of fabric, 4 of which were flannel. That is a lot of material! 

So after a few years, and many quilts later, we decided to add to my sewing machine collection and get a Juki DDL 8700. 

We picked it for several reasons. But I am guessing that if you are trying to figure out how to thread the darn thing like I did when I first bought it, you already know you need it.

Once you figure it out, it is really easy to rethread and takes just a second

Follow the video below and you'll be set in no time!

How to Clean A Sewing Machine or Serger from Dust Bunnies

{affiliate links below}
 
I don't know about you, but I sew enough that I am constantly combating the dreaded dust bunnies that accompany fabric. 
 
I have "heard" from my Bernina dealership to not use canned air as it can put moisture on the metal. Moisture and metal create corrosion. 
 
Plus, a canned air is plenty expensive for my taste and it never lasted long enough
 
So, I tried a vacuum
 
When that didn't work, I would blow my own air
 
Counterintuitive much?
 
Yes, moisture and metal create corrosion.
 
So we I came across a handy dandy tool on amazon.

Its a compressed air duster. 

 
No canned air required.

 So now, when I need to clean out my sewing machine, serger, laser, or whatever else that has pesky dust bunnies. A quick little treatment with the compressed air duster, and I am set!

Watch the short video below to see it in action.

Chinese Checkers Game Board

Watch as we give you a behind the scenes look at the creation process of the fun and unique Chinese Checkers board game. 

Chinese Checkers is a fun board game. Up to 6 players. Its simple enough that my 4 and 7 year olds love to play it with me.

The object of Chinese checkers is to get your marbles to the opposite star point before the competition. Strategies include lining up your marbles so that there is only a space in between so that you can jump. Thereby greatly decreasing the number of turns required to get the marbles all the way across.

It is seriously a simple game, with hours and hours of entertainment.

Chinese checkers are the perfect gift for birthdays, Christmas, Mother's Day, Father's Day. 

We leave ours out on the end table, and often as we are hanging out on our phones, someone will ask to play. Its a great way we have found to build our family bond.

Log Cabin Rag Quilt Pattern

The log cabin quilt block is one of the most popular and versatile quilt blocks out there. So we decided to try our hand at creating one in our style. Rag Quilt style that is. 

(clicking on any picture will take you to the rag quilt pattern available on our website AVTRBoutique for purchase. Thank you for supporting our small family business)

We love that rag quilting is quick project friendly. This quilt was made in an afternoon. Clipped in a couple hours. Then washed and ready to be snuggled with.

We centered the quilt around Riley Blake Designs Cottage Core fabric line, then mixed in a few other fabrics (all from Riley Blake...They're our favorite!)

Then we added Shannon fabrics Lux Minky to the back of the quilt after we had created the rag quilt. Followed by a binding in a soft mint green.

We love the way this quilt turned out. Its such a fun quick project with a huge impact. Perfect if you're wanting  a quick project, a gift for someone special, or just because!
