Short Stacks, Musical Finish




Short Stacks, a pattern by Black Cat Creations, designed by Judy Reynolds is one of my all time favorites...especially when I need a masculine quilt.  This particular quilt has now been gifted to Al, a great friend and work mentor who recently retired.  Al is also a gifted musician, which made it easy to choose the fabric.

T-Shirt Quilt Finish


We have had a rainy week (now snowing), so I only have inside pictures of an already darker quilt.  A high school graduation gift - my first T-Shirt quilt.  I made a couple of practice blocks with old T-Shirts...so glad I did.  To those who make the T-Shirt Quilts for a living-- bless you!   


Loaded on the long arm and basted the whole quilt first, then went back and quilted in a circular pattern.


And....here it is fresh off the long arm frame.  I am hoping for a picture (outside) when presented to my great nephew.

Sunday Sample, Block 12


Bonnie Hunter's Block, "Joyeaux" from Quiltmaker 100 Blocks, Volume 12 is done ....and is my 12th block completed.  I have only three left (which includes the newest recently published).


Above are all the blocks I have completed -- I use Photo Grid to show them all, however it is a little crowed -- I may just start putting them on the design wall.
