Number 12 Just Hit the Big Time!

Wow, I am moving along with the Big Project! I have just finished number 12.

I have made this quilt pattern by Jenny Doam once before.

It is a quick and easy pattern and I think it is very good for a boy quilt.

I have also used a shirt from my husband in this quilt to help make this a memory type quilt.

I used the Baptist fan groovy board and variegated Superior thread. I love the combination of the Baptist fan with the zig zag of the pattern.

I have another quilt loaded on the HQ ready to start the quilting. Yeah!
I will Keep on Scrappin!

Number 11 Completed for the Big Project

I have completed another quilt.

This quilt is number 11 in the Big Project. It is called Merry Go Round by Jenny Doan. The colors in the quilt are a bit wash out from the bright morning sun.

The center of the quilt was the pattern but I needed a bit bigger quilt so I added the pieced border.

I quilted it with the Baptist Fan groovy board that came with my HQ. It is one of my favorite designs.

There are several recycled shirts in this quilt. One is from my father in law and several are from my husband and even a couple from my shirts. I think this makes the quilts somewhat of a memory quilt.

I have another quilt on the HQ and a wall hanging that I want to complete right away. I will Keep Scrappin away!

A Two Week Old Completion

I do have another completion and it is 2 weeks old.

I had allot of trouble with the thread while I was quilting this.

So I re-quilted two rows before I got it off the HQ.

Then I went ahead and bound it and cleaned up the back of the quilt.

This is a quilt pattern from Jenny Doan at Missouri Star Quilt company. This was a great pattern to use some of my 2 1/2 inch squares I have cut up and ready to use. I used the Whirlygig pantogram for the quilting and a pretty lavendar thread from Superior Threads. It is a fun pattern to use and I think I may end up using this pattern again.

For now I am working on borders for three quilts, a have a top ready to sew together and another quilt with the blocks all finished. I am going to be real busy in the Quilt Studio in the next month or so.

I will Keep on Scrappin!
