My daughter, Sparkle Jane, also created a Crayola Quilt for donation.

Just simple squares with a geometric all-over quilting design using variegated thread.

The stripey binding and the polka dot back are what really makes it special.  Yay for Sparkle Jane!

Show And Tell Time

Seeing quilts makes me happy…that is why I share tutorials and ideas here in the first place.

And many of my readers very kindly share their creations to add to the quilting happiness in the world.

Patricia made this Twinkle Baby quilt for her grandson.

Maryann created a Hundred Patch way back in 2014, but I didn’t post the picture correctly.  Here it is at long last for your viewing pleasure.

Here’s another Hundred Patch, this one created by Karen.  I never get tired of seeing them.

Susan has finished her Desert (Calico) Rose quilt.  Including the binding that never seems to end.  I love it!

Karen made a LARGE (King Size) version of Film at Five.

Paula has been handing out hugs by the hundreds–TWO Hundred Hugs quilts.  So happy!

Carol made a K-Quilt.  She said she gets lots of compliments on it and I believe her!

Tutorials for all of these quilts can be found in the TUTORIALS tab above.  Have fun!  Keep quilting!  Share more pictures!

 

Irish Star Quiltalong: Progress Update

Many of you reported on your progress, and some sent pictures.

Neralie (a beautiful name) in Australia has already finished a small one!  And she has another planned.  It took my breath away to see one finished.  Amazing!

Ruth has been cutting and cutting–two days worth.  Her color scheme is so pretty!

Meloney is sewing blocks–she has 46 of 81 chain blocks complete.  Her color scheme is very controlled and will be striking.

P1010404Randy’s also has controlled colors…and she has a very nice design wall.

Claire created this solids-only beauty at her Fall Retreat using 3-inch squares.  It finished at 45″ x 45″.

And here is part of Mel’s–looking good on her design wall.  Even with such a tight color scheme, it is anything but boring!

If I missed your picture, I’m sorry.  Don’t be afraid to point it out and I will try again.

Now, back to sewing!

A Few Small Things–FINISHED

The three baby quilts I was working on for the past month or so are now FINISHED!

All three were quilted on Friday, bound Saturday/Sunday and will soon be with the intended owners–my parents–for future gifting.

I feel very successful.

First up is Construction. It is based on a FREE pattern found HERE: http://www.allpeoplequilt.com/quilt-patterns/wall-quilts/warm-breeze

Second is Floating Stars.  It is based on 4″ squares with the contrasting stars scattered here and there.  Nothing fancy, but I really like the colors and simplicity coordinated with the backing.

And, to wrap up this batch, Cars.  Thanks to Sew Fresh Quilts for their darling design ideas–the pattern is for sale HERE: https://www.etsy.com/listing/535802933/car-quilt-block-pattern-pdf-instant?ref=shop_home_active_32

SO, unless a baby pops out unexpectedly, I think that is all my baby quilts for the year.  My goal was 10 and this is a total of 11.  YAY!
