What I’m working on from Eagle's Wings Quilts

I have finished the Leftovers Sampler. I took it upstairs into the front hallway to get pictures. It is the only space in the house large enough to be able to spread a quilt out for pictures. I had to do a bit of editing for the colours since it is such a grey and gloomy day out.

 After the top was finished I still had some orphan blocks left over, so I pieced them into the back. I have had the fabrics hanging around for a long time, so I grabbed all the Civil War type colours of fat ...

WIP Wednesday from Eagle's Wings Quilts

I’m continuing to work on the Leftovers Sampler. I now have the fourth row done and attached.

I’ve started on the 18 inch squares for the last row.

I have one more 18 inch square to do and some smaller filler blocks that will be 8 inches square and then some flying geese and this will be done. I am going to be intensely piecing the backing as well in order to use up more orphan blocks and also to empty out some of the fat quarters and yardage that I would like gone from the stash. What ...

This whole project has been designed and laid out using Electric Quilt 8 software. The overall look I’m going for is this quilt.

It is using up 6 inch, 10 inch and 12 inch blocks that were already made and sitting in various boxes.I’m making 18 inch and 20 ...

WIP Wednesday from Eagle's Wings Quilts

One of the bonuses of working on machine stitched quilts rather than hand stitched quilts is that there is progress to show faster. I’m working on a sampler using up old orphans and also some new blocks. I’ve gotten a second and third row done now and the rows are sewn together. I’m calling it my Leftovers Sampler.

I am really working outside my comfort zone here. I love all things balanced and symmetrical, and this quilt is neither of those. It is all different sizes and grids and because there is so much variety in it ...

What I’m working on.... from Eagle's Wings Quilts

For the last few years most of my sewing and quilting time has been taken up almost exclusively with hand pieced projects. While doing La Passacaglia I fell in love with the process of English Paper Piecing and it took over all my quilting time. But in the last few months my love of machine piecing has been renewed.
Back at the end of November I started working on a Log Cabin quilt designed by Judy Martin. It is in her book Extraordinary Log Cabins. Its name is Pioneer Log Cabin. The picture here shows it without the borders on ...
