Mega Medallion from The Colorful Fabricholic


Mega Medallion

Done in time for CSQ's UFO Challenge and STLMQG's War on WIPs. Custom long arm quilted by Sandy Etheridge of St. Louis. Queen size but kinda short, could have used one more row at the bottom, but I didn't have enough of the black & white fabrics.

(Sorry for such a blurry photo - I took over a dozen shots and they all came out blurry, even though I used a tripod. Blame it on the breeze!)

Linking up with Friday Finish at Crazy Mom Quilts and Whoop Whoop Friday at Confessions of a Fabric Addict.

Modern Feathers from Becca's Crazy Projects

It has been ages since I pieced some feathers for this collaborative quilt for the Baltimore Modern Quilt Guild.

Last Sunday at the guild meeting, I took possession of the quilt top and binding.  When I got it home I layered it all together and looked at it.  And looked at it.  Then, I just got quilting.  This thing wasn't going to quilt itself. 
There are so many different ways this could have been quilted.  So many ways any quilt can be quilted.  I decided to do simple filler that wasn't too dense for the background and let ...

One Pineapple, Two Pineapple, Three Pineapple, Four! from Quiltville's Quips & Snips!

We were in a pineapple kind of mood yesterday! I am so impressed with the whole venue here in Amherst, NY. This seminar has been going on for 40 years strong, and it is so well organized.  If you get a chance to come this direction in September – if you are close enough to make a road trip ---believe me, it’s worth it! Being this far north in New York, my classes have been nearly equally

Peace Felt from Kit Lang, Fiber Art

Have you heard of Peace Felt

I hadn't either, but back in the early summer, a friend of mine was all excited about the concept. Members of Peace Felt each year, exchange a piece of felted art, "For Peace to be Felt in hearts across the world." Now, it's me - so you know I have a more practical point of view, and didn't quite understand how my exchanging art with a random stranger was supposed to allow peace to be felt. 

Nevertheless, my friend was quite excited about it, explained that we would each get to know ...

Quilting? What's that? from Happy Cottage Quilter

Do you remember when your kids always had an excuse as to why they did not do what they were supposed to be doing?

While I have not been able to do much (any) quilting of late, I've had my excuses.  Aside from another pressing project that I've been working on (for several weeks, or is it months), we've had a house full of company.  Well maybe not a house full, but our guest room has had a no vacancy sign on it for several weeks.  In and out......... friends of my daughters, two guys who hold ...

When Lighting Strikes from Baby Boomer Quilting Bee

In Southern Louisiana, we have had a lot of bad weather, including lighting storms. We now have a new internet service, new phones and lucky we did not lose more.  I have been wanting to share these beautiful batik quilts made by Kathy from Texas. She used my "Stars over Scott" pattern, named for my son.  The quilts are made using batik HSTs!  That's it.  Good way to use up scraps.

In the works, busy quilting tops for new patterns by Black Cat Creations.  The Houston Market is just around the corner.

First Friday at Quiltworks from Humble Quilts

 I wasn't able to make it to Quiltworks for First Friday earlier in the month and I know September will be gone before I know it. I had to make a quick jaunt to Bend for business so dropped by quickly to enjoy the exhibit upstairs.
Tammy MacArthur was the featured quilter. It was obvious to me she loved applique, challenges and machine quilting. She is very talented and I enjoyed seeing her diverse collection of quilts.

(I do believe this one was hand quilted!)

The group featured was the Central Oregon Modern Quilt Guild. The quilts displayed were ...

Challenge from Hanging On by a Needle and Thread

The challenge for the Mountain Laurel Quilt Guild's exhibit this year was to make a quilt representing one or all of the elements.  I chose to represent fire and earth with my quilt, Sunrise Around the World, but when I showed it to my husband he said it looked like an aerial view of a jungle explosion.  I guess either way you look at it I accomplished my goal!

Tidy up or sew?! from Adventurous Quilter

My sewing room goes through phases of messiness. BUT IT IS ALWAYS MESSY! After buying another sewing machine (number 16) this week I decided I needed to tidy up and rearrange a little to find a space to pack it away when it is not in use!

Half way through cleaning up I found 50 mini charm squares sewn into pairs, they didn't go with any WIP so I decided to throw them together into a table runner:

Then I remembered I was cleaning up!!!! OOPS

Now you can see the top of my sewing desk:

Let's Make Baby Quilts! {9/19/14} from Michelle's Romantic Tangle

I'm absolutely swooning over the copy of Animal Parade: Adorable Applique Quilt Patterns for Babies that the nice folks at Martingale sent me.  These quilts are such a gorgeous combination of applique and piecing.

Just look at those stars! You could make the quilt without the owls...I'm not sure why you'd want to do that, but it would still be gorgeous.

And the foxes!

You can see all ten quilts at the book's detail page on the Martingale website. These would be such wonderful heirloom projects. and with the variety of colors and critters, I ...

Favorites on Friday: Fall Quilts from A Quilting Life

 Since I've started doing a little Fall decorating around the house (Monday is the first day of Autumn) I thought it would be fun to share my favorite fall quilts for today's favorites post. My absolute favorite fall quilt is one I did about ten years ago using scraps. It was one of my first attempts at machine applique using fusible material along with a buttonhole stitch.
