Small completions for my spare bathroom

I have three wall hangings and a toilet topper to show off now.

The pictures didn't turn out too good. The flash washed out the colors.

The above pictures are from my Craftsy class with Joanna Figeroa. I liked the variations she showed from the different quilts she taught in the class.

This is a block I found on my own and the all the colors in these wall hangings go with the bathroom colors I chose.

I painted the walls a very light lavender. I am very pleased with the results of this update in my bathroom.

I am now working on another intensive & complicated quilt that I have been working on for over a year now. I almost have the center ready to put all together. I will hopefully be able to show it completed within the next month or two.

Keep on Scrappin!

A Very Beautiful Completion

I have a lovely completion for this month of March. Yeah!

This has been a labor intensive work of love.

I made this quilt all from stash except the back ground fabric I purchased just for this quilt.

This quilt was made from my Craftsy class with Edyta Sitar. The class was Garden of Quilted Possibilities and this quilt is called Dresden Bloom. I would highly recommend her as a teacher.

I started the quilt last year and quilted it last month.

I had to custom quilt it because part of the blooms have 3 dimensional parts so an over all quilting would not work. I am not very good at custom quilting but this quilt is for me so it is ok.

I really like this quilt and I am very happy that I could use so much fabric from my stash.

I have a couple small projects to show next.

2nd Completion for 2017

I am so happy today for this completion! I have done several of Bonnie Hunter's mystery quilts over the years and I have always felt good if I can get them finished before the next mystery starts. The mysteries always start the day after Thanksgiving.

This is called En Provence.

I used up allot of stash in this quilt. The only thing I bought was the magenta (dark pink) (1 1/2 yd) for this quilt.

I also used a king size cotton sheet I got at the thrift store. I paid $6 for it. This cotton is so soft!

I used the Whirly Gig panto with a variegated Superior thread.

I have given this quilt to Jenny. Just because!

I am still hard at work on the two labor intensive quilts that I am determined to have finished before Spring!
Keep on Scrappin!

First Completion for the year 2017!

I have my first completion for the New Year!

This is a Quilt of Valor.

I like this pattern so much that I will be making another one this year with a slight variation.

This is a Jenny Doan pattern from Missouri Star Quilt Co.

I used the Baptist fan groovy board for my HQ machine.

I love red, white and blue quilts!

I am now working on a couple of quilts that are more time consuming so I won't have a completion for awhile.
But I will Keep on Scrappin!

Looking back to 2016

The year 2016 has been a great year in quilt completions.

This quilt was the first completion for 2016.

I really love this completion!

This is a great completion. A Quilt of Valor for a Vietnam vet.

This is the 4th completion for 2016 and all were completed in January.

This quilt was the only completion for February but it certainly is appropriate for the month of February!

These two quilts are for March. They look great!

These two quilts were completed in April 2016.
Then there are no completion for over 4 months. Life happens!

This quilt was completed in September and it is a Quilt of Valor. Yeah!

This is another completion for the month of September!

This quilt was also completed in September!

This quilt was my only completion for October but it looks great!

My completion for the month of November!

All four of the above small projects were completed in the year 2016 but I did not blog about them until December 2nd.

This quilt was completed in December.

And this quilt was the final completion for the year 2016. There were a total of 20 completions for the year 2016!

Last Completion for 2016

I have now completed the last quilt for 2016.

This quilt is for a grandson. I made this quilt from one of my Craftsy classes. Smarter Strip Quilting with Joanna Figueroa.

I really enjoyed making this quilt all from my stash except the background fabric. I used all stash cut into 10 1/2" squares to make the backing.

I used a variegated tan Superior Thread and my Groovy board for my HQ with Baptist fans for the quilting.

I would recommend Joanna Figueroa to anyone interested in taking a Craftsy quilting class.

I have started on one of the Quilts of Valor and have all but 6 blocks done. I am using all scraps from my stash and this of course makes me very happy. This quilt will be completed next month.

Keep on Scrappin!

Number 20 Has Been Completed!

I am so happy! I have another completion, number 20 in the Big Quilt Project that I been working on for over a year and a half!

When I took one of my classes in Panquitch at the Quilt Walk I won a template ruler from the Missouri Star Quilt Co. and I decided to use it in one of my Big Project quilts. This quilt will be for a grandson.

 I was able to use up some old fabric in the backing as well as the front of the quilt.

Also the border is made from some 4-patches I sewed up a couple of years ago in my quest to clean out my stash. I was happy with the border as it turned out. Yeah!

There are a couple of fabrics in the top that are from my husband and my shirts. Lots of memories

I have one more quilt for this Big Project but I will not be completing it until the first of the year. I have all of the blocks done, the sashings, and the corner stones are cut too. This quilt requires some inset triangles with machine applique and I haven't started on them yet. So it will take a little time to finish up this quilt but that is OK.

Now I will be concentrating on 2 Quilts of Valor that I have planned next.
I will Keep on Scrappin!
