Quilting fun for family and friends!

Wednesday, 27 July 2016


I am having a problem tracking my projects so thought a partial list might be in order.

Postage Baby quilt done and delivered. The recipient was very touched as it is her second baby. Guess she was told only one shower for the first baby. Second baby needs quilty love too. Same fabric for the two quilts.

Prairie Queen - for my brother-in-law. I put this out as a bee block and really love it. I just purchased some border material. Hope to have this finished this month.

For the Boys - From the Quilt Lovely book. Love this quilt. For my nephew turning 21! It was requested Black and Blue. So Black and Tan after the beer drink and blue for the accent. Love it!

and my Plus Quilt, ah, love!
So I am NOT counting my fabric in, however I will say that I used -5.5 on the Go Quilt, and -2.5 on the Postage Stamp Quilt. Tada!

Bee block top

I asked my Bee Mates for blue and yellow Prairie Queen Blocks. They are now a top and I am in love! Love, love, love this quilt! It's a bit small so I think I'll add a border.
Worked on my cheater quilt. I think I will call it a panel quilt or a whole cloth quilt. Something that doesn't sound like I cut all kinds of corners. Really I just loved the panel and didn't want to cut it up. I am already having issues with giving it away as a baby quilt, sigh. And it's not even done! Now I have to decide which binding. Clown stripe or multi stripe? What do you think?
 Also working on my postage stamp quilt. This one needs to be finished quite quickly as my work mate is off the end of the month. She's having another boy.
30's playtime nine square, I am just loving this and could make these forever.
Also a 30's 16 square. Following a set colour pattern, may have to switch it up.

Charity Quilt

Every year for the past three years I have made a charity quilt or 2. The first two years it was to raise money for cancer. this year I heard of a little boy who fell off a trampoline. He has been in the hospital for almost two months now. It felt so nice to gift him and his family a quilty hug.

Go Quilt - the colours in the middle picture are most true.

Baby Blankets - 4, 5 and 6

Whoohoo, I am on a roll. Do 2 blog posts make a roll?

I did manage to finish my February, March and May Bee Blocks. Thanks for being so patient ladies! I have fabulous bee mates.

 February! This was very fun.
March, I am not sure of my colour placement but it was an enjoyable block. A lot of trimming however.
And May! Jen is working on a quilt with 2 different blocks. Can't wait to see the finished product. It is going to be beautiful.

A second DNA quilt,
An Animal Patchwork,

And a Thirties Patchwork.

Baby quilts 4, 5 and 6.

A Finish

I finished a baby quilt this week. Love it. I went on a retail therapy trip and came back with a selection of fabric I had no idea what to do with. Erg! Inspiration struck. Yeah!

The feathers as a background is fabulous! Love it with the dots. Gifted and already loved by the mom. She really like bold colours!

And I still need two more baby quilts.

Not to mention the quilt I just purchased and started cutting out. Oh yeah I am in love.

April OMG

My Grandson's Bunny quilt. He in only three months old but better sooner rather than when he's an adult.
