Monday Design Wall

Although this is not the final setting, I have been playing with my blocks from Jackie's BOMs (Canton Village Quilt Works).  I tend to like BIG quilts, so Jackie's 13 Blocks became 26 --- I tend to like lots of piecing, so I made simple filler blocks from the left over fabric (I used a layer cake from Moda Collection, Basic Grey).  I promise, there is nothing left from the layer cake except tiny TINY pieces.  Thank goodness I bought matching fabric for an inner border (or sashing) and an outside border/binding.

Speaking of BIG quilts, I have always liked to make mine big.  Even my baby quilts are larger than normal -- they have to be practical -- babies grow! Right?  I giggled when Bonnie Hunter mentioned she liked them big in her live Quilt Cam the other night.  I am tall, so I like them to cover my feet and sometimes my head when it is really cold.  I also want to know that my family will pull out the practical quilts over and over to use them.

I am so excited that I have something to share on the Monday Design Wall -- so I am heading over to Judy's at Patchwork Times to share.  Then I am heading for the recliner to start the binding handwork on my Orca Bay (yep, it is done, done, done).

Blogger's BOM - February Done.

Two more blocks have been added to the BOM, hosted by Jackie at Canton Village Quilt Works. In February, Amy with Diary of a Quilter introduced her pattern -- the cutest little star. I am making two of each, because I just love this project. I am using a Moda Layer Cake, Basic Grey/Origins and can't wait for the end so I can put it together.

A very special lady, Miss Sarah with Confessions of a Fabric Addict, is hosting her weekly Friday Whoop Whoop Party, so I am heading over there to join her. Be sure to also check out her Hands2Help Charity Quilt Challenge.

Blogger's BOM - All Caught Up

All ready for January 25th -- when the next BOM goes live! The most recent pair, all the way on top is from Pat Sloan -- love it! Now I wait patiently for the next BOM from John over at Quilt Dad. I am so glad I started this -- it is a nice slow pace to keep up with in-between all the busy work.

I am also glad to have something new for Sarah's Whoop Friday! Head on over to Confession of a Fabric Addict to see who else is cookin'!

Blogger's BOM - December Done

I now have September, October and November (on top row) done. This is a great little project to fit in between piecing -- i.e., a leader and ender project for the Bonnie Hunter Mystery Quilt and my "Dance of the Tiger" that I am still working on. This BOM project is hosted by Jackie with Canton Village Quilt Works. The November block was designed by Stephanie at Loft Creations, with directions on her site. I only have Pat Sloan's December BOM left and then I will be caught up.

Happy Tuesday!

Monday Design Wall -- Slow Piecing Week

October BOM - DONE! I am a late starter in the BOM hosted by Jackie at Canton Village -- but here is Block 2. Vicki, with Field Trips in Fiber designed the above block -- so cute and simple. I am using a layer cake from Moda, Basic Grey/Origins and making 2 blocks each month. Of course, I still need to make November and December to catch up -- January will be posting on the 25th.

Finished quilting my sister's project Sunday -- Phyllis is such a great piecer -- everything is so precise!

Here is a "surprise" project that I finished a couple of weeks ago -- HOWEVER I need to be careful and not be in too much of a hurry, notice the safety pin below. Apparently, while passing the lint brush, I discovered a missed area. Good thing I caught before shipping it off to Amy.

I love reproduction fabric -- which you will see again and maybe again yet. I have enough for at least 3 more quilts. This one (no name yet) will be sent to it's new home in Houston, with an unveiling later on.

It's late, and I won't be sewing tonight -- so I need to rush over to Judy's at Patchwork Times and link up with the rest of Monday Design Walls. AND -- I just read that Judy will be receiving a shipment of her newest book, 60 Pieced Borders very soon. I am so glad I pre-ordered, because my autographed book will be arriving here very soon. CAN'T WAIT!!!!
