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 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!
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.
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!
