Simple & Sweet 10/30/2014

Finished this sweet little piece last night.  It’s another of the small kits from Temecula Quilt Co.  Not sure where this one is going to go yet --- I’ve got a couple of ideas.  It’s a small one, only 11” x 13”.  (and yes, the brown triangles flip flop directions in an irregular way according to the pattern)

Scrappy Log Cabin

Loaded this scrappy log cabin onto the frame this afternoon to work on during the OSU game.  When I pulled the earlier photos of this quilt top, I couldn’t believe that it has been waiting since July, 2012 for me to quilt it.

Harvest Rows is still on the machine … depending on how things go tomorrow, I may be able to finish it up.

Even more BOM catch up

I didn’t like the #9 block that I did for the Globetrotting BOM on Wednesday, so I just made this one in different colors.

More BOM catch up …

Ooh-Rah BOM … Block #9.  Lots of pieces (44) in this block … wouldn’t want to make an entire quilt out of this block – although it would be stunning wouldn’t it?

IMG_1625

and for the Globetrotting BOM … blocks #8 and #9.  I may end up re-doing block 9 because I think it came out a little too dark.

Time to catch up on some BOM blocks …

Where did July and August go?  I had soooo much going on that I’m behind on some of the block-of-the-month blocks.  Trying to catch up!

Black and Red and Gold All Over

Finished up this hexie quilt top this evening.  Not sure how I’ll be quilting it yet.  This was another one of the amazing kits that I had purchased at Good Wives Co.  It was in Marion, OH but unfortunately closed a few months ago.  So sad :(

2 Blue Chickens!

Well, I couldn’t stop myself – I made two more chicken pincushions.  This time – as stuffed toys for my nephews.  Jake (4½) loved his and we immediately named him Blueberry.  However little Jack (2½) wasn’t as impressed and threw it at me!

Candy Coated

Worked on quilting my Candy Coated quilt today.  I loaded the quilt on Saturday and so when I got down to my studio, I was ready to begin on Sunday afternoon.

Here’s the quilt draped on the frame.  (before the binding was turned and stitched down)  I used a simple geometric design that I created in Art & Stitch.

IMG_5746

Here’s a different camera angle with the light hitting it just right – making it easier to see the stitching.

While watching TV on Sunday evening, I finished the binding.

This week in my quilting life …

Finished up the piecing on my Candy Coated quilt top.  Work on this had kind of stalled while I decided exactly how big I wanted to make it.  It’s a modern quilt, but I did it in reproduction fabrics.  The colors are mostly purples, blues and creams.  I decided to make it about 40” x 60”.

IMG_1588

I loaded one of the mystery quilts that I did a few months ago onto the longarm this week too.  Lots of continuous curve ruler work, and some fun flowers with the Pro-Stitcher.

Disappearing Four-Patch

Guess I haven’t posted any pictures of this quilt yet … It started out as a disappearing 4-patch kit from a store in Georgia called Little Quilts and I added a couple of borders using fabrics that I had in my stash.  It’s a strange combination of colors, but it really works for some reason.

The quilting design is a pattern called Rhapsody from urbanelementz.com.  They have some of my FAVORITE designs.
