Two More Off The List, Superbowl Prep, and the 2020 Pet Peeve from caledonia quilter

Every year I make a list of projects that I want to complete.  I call it my DO-IT CHALLENGE.  The first week of January my new list for 2020 included "complete 3 UFO's".  Well, by golly, here it is just past the first month end and I've knocked that one out of the park already.   

APPLE CORE  The pieces were cut using JAWS, and I used a pattern from the Accuquilt web site.  I increased the size of the quilt by quite a bit - it's plenty big enough for DH to take a nap under.

This is ...

Christmas Quilts from caledonia quilter

Most years I show you my same three Christmas quilts - one for the King bed, one for the Queen bed, and one for the living room.  THIS year I'm showing you some customer quilts.

This is a gorgeous selection of Cardinal fabrics.  It's not exactly a Christmas quilt, but the birds always evoke winter.

This one's really cute - just squares of Christmas fabrics stitched into a throw.

There's a ton of work in this one - Round the Twist or Garden Trellis quilt.  This version used a lot of half-square triangles.

And a very Canadian hockey quilt ...

Tobermory Retreat Recap & Technology Mixed With Idiots & Scammers from caledonia quilter

I abandoned hubby for six days - he and the dog were feeding each other kibbles and bits for a week.  Although, a friend took pity on him and had him over for a roast beef dinner mid-week so he didn't starve.

I played THREAD CHICKEN and won.

The railing with completed projects.  This is always such a satisfying pic!  Debbie definitely took the prize this year - completing all those wee monthly quilts.  So cute.

Of course, cocktails.

I work on my Double Wedding Ring for one day every year.  The Tobermory cottage is a great space for it.  This ...

Patchwork Jigsaw PJ 1143 continued from Virtual Quilter

Another couple of Patchwork Jigsaws, also known as Drunkard’s Path.

These are the block colourings I liked using this block … note that the numbers relate to the placement of the 4 pieces in the top left hand corner of the first block. In the other variations of the block that combination is twisted and turned every which way to create different effects.

The last design in this project file is the same as the one at the top, but with the fabrics changing places, but not the pieces.

Summer Sampler 2019: Piecing Bootcamp. Learn to quilt!

Yessss!! I finished my Summer Sampler 2019 quilt top! Cue the confetti cannons and loud obnoxious music!

Summer Sampler 2019: Piecing Bootcamp. Learn to quilt!

Okay, but seriously, you guys. This year marks the fourth Summer Sampler quilt-along that Katie, Faith, and I have created (well, make that the fifth, if you count the original Summer Sampler way back in 2011). After spending the summer making all these gorgeous weekly sampler blocks, actually putting them together and finishing the quilt always feels like a HUGE accomplishment. Even for us—the organizers/designers—it feels huge! So for all of you out there who are still working on this ...
