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.

Gen X Quilters' Hoop Quilt Along

14" Hoop Quilts






I kept seeing posts of AnneMarie's Hoop Quilts and finally bought her pattern.  Shortly after that, she hosted a Hoop Quilt Along.  I decided that was a good time to start.  I have several hoops that I don't use and I picked the two that happened to be handy.  I certainly need to improve my handwork skills but I am still satisfied with my first attempt at the hoop quilts.
I am looking forward to making more of them (when I come across the rest of my hoops!)

Please check out her website at GEN X QUILTERS here!

30th Finish for 2017

30th Finish for 2017
Baby Panel

I don't remember how long I have had this panel, but it has been trying to get me to quilt it for at least a year now.  Every time I open the closet I see it sitting there waiting for me to make it whole.  Now it just needs someone to cuddle with it.

Backing

I just outlined the panels and the characters and put a simple ribbon candy in the outside borders.

29th Finish for 2017 - Quilted and Bound

29th Finish for 2017
This quilt is from a swap sometime around 2008.  I am not sure about the date.  I wound up with 24 blocks and some were more boyish and some more feminine so I chose to make a boy and girl one. (see 28th finish for the girl one).
You can find the free pattern HERE

Back of quilt shows the outline of the cars.
