Charity Quilting from Becca's Crazy Projects

Last week I dropped off seven quilted charity quilts for Annapolis Quilts for Kids.
I also quilted up a couple more for next time.
Mary made these fun butterflies. I wonder if I got them right-side up?

Breezy Quilt Tops from Jan's Quilts




When I make charity quilt blocks for my quilt guild, the Temecula Vally Modern Quilt Guild, I make 2 to donate and 2 to keep. I threw in some orphan blocks and made these quilt tops from the keepers. Two quilt tops done, same pattern, different look.

First I made the quilt top on the left.  While I was making it, I was inspired to make the brighter version.  Thank heavens for an abundant stash!


For Breezy #1, I used Kona Windsor and Coty.


For Breezy #2, I used Kona Turquoise, Chartreuse, Citrus, Red, and Surf.

This is a new ...

Cutting Quilt Blocks from Heart Desire Creations

Spring Quilt & Sew-In has 2 spots available! Please come join in the fun & creativity!

April being not too far away, and the Spring Quilt & Sew-In Retreat, I prepped blocks for the charity quilts that the attendees will be sewing. The first block is for a quilt called Mid-Century Quilt. There’s a variety of blues and tans for the blocks and enough blocks to build a twin size quilt.

Thank you Pineapple Fabrics for donating the fabrics used in these blocks.

Charity Quilting from Becca's Crazy Projects

I've been slowing cutting and piecing 6.5" squares for Annapolis Quilts for Kids. I came to the realization that I would never be able to make all those squares into quilts so I packed them up and dropped them off with the coordinator. I'm sure she will bundle them up with other blocks, borders, and send them to her piecers to construct tops. I'm sure I'll see some of these blocks in finished tops at some point. I'm looking forward to it.

More fun charity quilts for Annapolis Quilts for Kids
The border fabrics really pull this fun, one-block quilt together. 
I think this may have been a carpenter's star quilt that went somewhat sideways. I added the border fabric and quilted it as it is. A finished quilt is always better than a perfect quilt. I'm sure it will be loved.

Charity Quilting from Becca's Crazy Projects

I love all the different quilt tops I pick from Annapolis Quilts for Kids. So many different makers and techniques. This scrappy wonder is delightful!
Many are simple quilts, but some are more interesting like this triangle quilt.
This raw-edge applique butterfly quilt is pretty awesome, too. This one was a challenge to quilt but totally worth it.

A New Year of ? . . . from Heart Desire Creations

Quilting, creating, travel and fun with friends! A two night sew-in with friends in March, three retreats in April and one in November. No firm travel plans yet, but I’m working on it!

First up is prepping to make a quilt for a baby girl due this spring.  The requested colors are red, gray and black. Here are the reds I’ve chosen:

And here are the grays and blacks:

My plan is to make a scrappy sawtooth star, with four patches between each star block. The fabrics are all prewashed and pressed. I’d like to get them ...

Charity Quilting from Becca's Crazy Projects

I picked up another stack of charity quilts from Annapolis Quilts for Kids and have been working on them. This fun scrappy quilt was pieced by Mary.

A Very Good Year from Heart Desire Creations

My year was not as productive as some, but it was enjoyable. It is the process, not the progress that I now focus on.  There was still a lot of thread used! Each year I post a pic of my empty spools.  Not as many as last year, but I also had less partial spools when the year began.  It continues to amaze me how much thread quilters go through!

What are my plans for 2020? I will continue to minimize the contents of my studio.  I have been cleaning out my craft bins, tossing, gifting and rearranging as I ...

Sarasaland Princess from Jean Swenson


Sarasaland Princess
December 2019

The jumping off point and inspiration for this quilt was the daisy motif pillowcase in the (somewhat) center. It is a vintage Vera Neumann design, from the 1970’s, in yellow ombré. I had it in some things inherited from my Mom, and from its near perfect condition, I suspect she never used it. So after being stashed away for forty-plus years, it was time for these pretty daisies to come out of storage and be enjoyed.

I had two objectives for the design: I wanted to use an ombré effect in the pieced section around ...

Charity Quilting from Becca's Crazy Projects

We're approaching the end of the year. This has been a great year for charity quilting. I'm not calling the year in charity quilting done, but it is close.

Sometimes even a charity quilt demands something more than the humble meander. 
I let the piecing help me decide what to do. Here is a close up. Custom quilting isn't my specialty, but I like doing it once in a while. 
Sometimes panels are just as fun as great piecing or custom quilting. 
Here is the stack headed to Annapolis Quilts for Kids tomorrow. This is the last ...

Crocheted charity donation from Books, Hooks, Sticks, etc.


Well, I don't know if anyone is still checking on my blog to see if I've posted; but since I like having this space as a place for me to show what I have been doing I am back.

This is a crocheted afghan that I had been working on over time.  One of the Facebook groups that I belong to is collecting comfort items for use by one of the members police department when they get calls that involve young kids.

I sent this afghan out since it was not destined to be used for any other ...

Sawtooth Star Quilt: Colour and Inspiration Tuesday from Clever Chameleon

Sawtooth Star quilt colour board

Preparing for a big 2020

I’m starting to sort and pack up my things ready to move house after Christmas….. all my batiks are already in boxes, so you can tell where my priorities lie…..

Clothes? Nope. Kitchenware? Nope. Laundry consumables…… does the iron count?! hahahaha nope, because it’s only used for quilting…. Schooling supplies and toys? Some. Batiks and favourite books? …. Ready to go!

Biased priorities aside, in starting to sort my sewing space I have had to have a good hard look at my quilting UFOs. Many are moving house with me, and will form the ...
