First Bat Block Done!

I am only participating in the quilt sewing at this time

although the cross stitch pattern is looking very cute, too. 


I shopped my stash to sew along with this free mystery pattern

These 2 Cool Ideas for Halloween and Fall quilts will jazz up your home decor or make a friend happy as they are great gifts! They are my latest finishes and I am so happy to see how they turned out.

A Halloween Finish from Quilting Is More Fun Than Housework

 



Remember these orphan blocks I found in a bag of scraps dropped off by a good friend?  Well, I am ready to share the quilt I finished using them.




I know many of you asked me how to make these blocks.  Well, the truth is I could never quite figure it out.  I think they were strip pieced using two fabrics.  Cut and then sewn back together again.  I believe they are one of those designs that when you sew them back together, you get a positive and a negative block.  You can see what I am talking about in ...

On my Design Wall from Quilting Is More Fun Than Housework

 I am feeling a bit overwhelmed with all of the projects I have going on right now.  So I am trying to finish a few quilt tops.



Remember these orphan blocks I received from a friend?



I have sewed, trimmed and added some gray sashing to the blocks. 


 


I ended up with enough blocks to create 5 rows. At first I tried a random color placement but found I liked this grouped placement best.




When it came time to add the horizontal sashing, I wanted to add a bit more color.  I found a pink fabric for some corner stones ...

Completely Side Tracked! from Quilting Is More Fun Than Housework

 This weekend, a dear friend sent me a text to let me know she was bringing me a quilt to have quilted.  Then she asked..."I found some orphan blocks.  Do you want them?"

Well, you can guess what my answers was!




Now I have no reason to adopt more orphan blocks.  I have already outgrown my orphan block suitcase and the second box I created is already over-flowing.  But the temptation of something new to play with was just too strong.



There are quite an assortment of various blocks but the ones that caught my attention were some improv ...

Let's See If I Remember How to Blog from Stella Bella Quilts

Well hello there (especially to Dianne who reminded me that I need to blog and read my emails more often).   I guess it's been a over a year since I posted. Wow time goes by.  I've been Instagramming so if you've missed the cats, images around NM, more cats, and a few quilts you can find me over there (@stellabellaquilts).

We are all fine. Cats are happy, S. is happy, I am happy.  Santa Fe is marvelous. I just fell out of the blogging ritual and maybe turned a little inward.  There's too much to catch ...
