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.

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!
