17th Completion

This is my next completion!

I started this quilt at the Quilt Walk in Panquitch, UT in June.

It is called Squash Blossom. I bought all the fabrics for this quilt.

I used the Whirly Gig panto and a variegated thread.

This quilt is for a grand daughter.

I now have only 4 quilts to go in this Big Project! I have them started and will hopefully have all of them done before the end of the year.

I will Keep on Scrappin!

A September Completion

I have another completion for the Big Project! It is number 16. This quilt has been done for a week and a half.

This is a Jenny Doan pattern but I can't remember the name of it just now.

This quilt is for a grandson and all the fabrics are from my stash, including the border fabric which is a homespun fabric.

There are a number of these fabrics that come from recycled shirts from my husband.

The backing is made from homespun that I have had in my stash for quite some time!

This was a quick and easy quilt to make, as Jenny always says. I really love the simplicity of it.

I have completed another quilt and will show it off as soon as I can take pictures of it.
For now I will Keep on Scrappin!

Yay! A Completion!

I am so happy that I have been able to steal some time away to work on my many quilt projects.

This is a completion for the Big Project that I have going on.

It is called Garden Paths and I started it at The Quilt Walk in Panquitch, UT this last June.

The only fabric I bought was the background white fabric. Everything else is from my stash.

The backing was from just my green stash. This is the first time I have cut 10 1/2 inch squares to make a background. Green is my favorite color and it shows in my stash. I have an over abundance of green fabric.

This quilt is for a grand daughter. Most of the fabrics I choose were feminine, lots of flowers and girly colors.

I used the Whirly Gig panto with a varigated thread.  I am very pleased with the results

I have loaded the next quilt onto the HQ and will start the quilting on it tomorrow morning. I have also been working on the next quilt in line.

I will Keep on Scrappin!

A Completion!

I am so happy to say that I have a completion.

This is a Quilt of Valor.

This pattern came from Jenny Doan at Missouri Star. It is called the Friendship Star.

This quilt was completed a couple of weeks ago and delivered to a friend of my son.

Matt was a medic in the Navy assigned to the Marines. He certainly has earned the badge for courage.

Even though you can't see the embroidery in the background I put in many words that pertain to the Marines and the Navy.

I have also completed two tops for the Big Project and hope to have at least one of them quilted by the end of the month.

I will Keep on Scrapin!

Wednesday, August 17, 2016

I just wanted to post to my blog to show that I am still alive and well but that I have not done anything in my Quilt Studio since May.

I do not have anything on my design wall at this moment.

I loaded this Quilt of Valor in May but I have not done any quilting on it.

I have not been able to piece anything since June when I went to the Quilt Walk in Panquitch, UT.
I did not get the two quilts I started there to a complete top at the time of my classes so I have nothing to show on them.

I have a few odd scraps on my cutting mat that need to be trimmed down but I have not had the time to do that chore either.

I could put some pictures of the yard and veggie beds but that would not be very interesting. I have done plum jam and some tomato soup with tomatoes from my garden as far as bottling goes. I will be picking up peaches and pears next Monday to bottle and then I will go on to tomato juice. I will finish up with apples after that.
I have been very busy with my mother taking her to different doctors. She is doing better now so things should start to settle down around here so I can get back to piecing.

For now, I will try real hard in the next month to get back into my Quilt Studio. I miss it so much!

Another Big Project Completion-14

I have completed number 14 of the 21 Big Project Quilts. This will be the last one to be completed for a couple of months now. I am getting very busy in the yard and I cannot do everything at full tilt anymore. I will complete two quilt tops at the Panquitch Quilt Walk in June but I will not be quilting them until late summer or early Fall. I will be concentrating on a quilt I started last Fall for my husband. It is a quilt kit that I bought on Craftsy and it will be what I work on continuously for the next few months.

This is a sampler quilt I did with Craftsy a couple of years ago while I was doing a color by month blog challenge.

I think it turned out pretty good. It was too small for what I needed so I added a 4-patch inner border and then a small outer border.

Some of these blocks I enjoyed and others I did not. But this way I was trying some new things and that always stretches me some.

I quilted it with the Whirly Gig and it turned out pretty good.

I will keep plugging away in the Quilt Studio as I have time.

Another Completion!

I am happy today I have another completion with another one soon to be completed.

I am very happy to have this string quilt done. I started it a couple of years ago. I was following a blog where each month a different color of fabric was used to make what ever block we wanted to make.

This pattern is from Bonnie Hunter. It is called Basket Weave.

I quilted it with the Whirly Gig pantogram. I love all the colors in this quilt.

The next quilt I show will be another one of these quilts where I used certain colors of fabric for each month. It is a sampler quilt.

For now I need to do the hand stitching on the next quilt so I will Keep on Stitchin!
