Teller's Firetrucks Quilt from Crayon Box Quilt Studio

Sometimes making a quilt just to use up leftovers turns out to be a good thing.
Last year, after I made the Courage Under Fire quilt for our friend Pete, I didn't want to put the scraps back in my stash or scrap bins yet again so I hunted down an idea to use them up.  I came across The Long and Short of It by Barbara Esposito on the Moda Bake Shop and decided to use that pattern, though I opted for the optional layout.  FYI...Moda recently moved the Bake Shop off that platform so the instructions ...

A 100 Good Wishes Quilt for Ellis from Crayon Box Quilt Studio

My longtime blog readers know that I started quilting because of the ancient Chinese 100 Good Wishes Quilt tradition and because of that, I've been able to make a number of 100 Good Wishes Quilts for the daughters of friends.

Modern Double Cross {a finished quilt} from Never Just Jennifer

This is the year of finishing things.  According to my blog history this quilt was imagined and started in February 2014 in the form of a tutorial for both 12 and 6 inch blocks for my turn as queen bee of We Bee Learning.  My cousin was graduating from High School that spring and I needed a quilt.

The blocks quickly came pouring in from across the country and, with the addition of a few more on my end, were ready to be pieced into a top by May.  Since the colors were so saturated I really felt ...
