Update: December 2016

Since I originally posted my description of this blog, I have somewhat erred from my intention. I have actually bought much more fabric than I had but ................. in my defense, I got the solids at 50% off and the quilt shop fabric at 75% off, so that doesn't count, right? LOL

My goal for 2017 is to completely finish one quilt per week including quilting and binding.

After all, we have to have a plan.

A Quilters' Garden Flower Block


This is my swap block. It wasn't too hard to make, but I definitely had to follow the directions closely.

Steam that Seam Swap Block for the Quilter's Garden

The picture of the swap block is to be posted by the last day of the month. I just made it under the wire! The quilt blocks are really looking nice. I am anxious to see the finish.

Barn Door QAL

 
 
 
 
Finally quilted and bound! The Barn Door QAL by Sarah Quilts.
I saw Angela Walters' video recently on FMQ so I thought I would practice on this quilt. The quilting is very dense, but you really can't see it. I did get some practice, but I also learned that I shouldn't put too much effort into quilting that won't be seen!
 






Rotaries in Bloom - Second block in the Quilters' Garden Mystery Row of the Month.

This is my swap block. A small washer belongs in the middle of the black circle. My husband thought he had one, but out of all of his washers, he didn't have one to fit this circle! I will have to make a trip to the hardware store.

I have all of the blocks made and I just need to applique all the rotary cutters on them. They are really looking nice all in a row.

Bright Sky QAL

This quilt by Blossom Hearts Quilts was so easy to put together. I just happened to have enough of a coordinating stripe floral to put a good sized border on it to make it queen size. I hope to make at least one more in a more modern color scheme. I am looking forward to quilting suggestions!

"Every Birdies Home Tweet Home" Block of the Month quilt top from Stroll the Block  about 6 or 7 years ago. Finally got it quilted on my Innova sit-down model. This is only my 8th quilt that I have quilted on my new Innova. I used Angela Walters' hook and swirl pattern from one of her latest videos on her blog. Thank you Angela.

One of my latest finishes. "Where are you socks and shoes" was a BOM by Pat Sloan. I finished the top about 6 years ago but just this year actually quilted it.

It is my goal to sew up my fabric before I die. I have a lot of fabric! Most of my fabric is 10-30 years old. I have only recently started to buy new fabrics. My blog is a journey of sewing up my fabric! Thank you for looking.
