May 2020 monthly recap.............. from Exuberant Color







I was very happy to finish 2 quilts in May.  The Framed 9 Patch on the left is 59" x 74" and was started in June last year and sewn into a top in April this year.  Party Lanterns is 74" x 95"  and has been waiting since April 2014 to be quilted.










Both tops sewn together in May were 16 patches, one of my favorite patterns.  I love the look of checkerboard.  Jewel is 56" x 71.5" and is all batiks.  African 16 patch is all African fabrics and Kona cotton solids and is 64.5" x 80 ...

April 2020 monthly recap..................... from Exuberant Color

As usual I waited until the very end of the month to really get in gear and get the last 2 quilts finished.  The flannel baby quilt is about 38" x 39".  Seeing Stars is from 2013 and is 64" x 82".  The Kaffe Trip Around the World is for my bed and is 77.5" x 96.5".  All quilted on my longarm.

April was a good month, the 4th month in a row with 3 finished quilts.
Two quilt tops were designed and sewn.  The African crazy pieced with panel is 40" square and the framed 9 patch ...

March 2020 recap................ from Exuberant Color

Three finished quilts for March.  That is 3 months in a row with 3 finishes.  Can I keep up the momentum?

The one on the left Prismatic Garden 14 is 41.5" x 57" and was quilted on my straight stitch machine. The block components were made several years ago but the top was finished in March last year.

Kaffe Meets Plaid in the center was quilted in straight lines on my longarm.  It finished at 70" x 95".  The top was finished in Aug. 2016 and backing was chosen last year.

Downtown on the right was quilted on my ...

February 2020 monthly recap.............. from Exuberant Color

I have 3 finishes for February just like I did in January.  It would be nice to keep up this pace.  The wonky heart baby quilt is 38" x 39", Australian Valentine quilt is 54" x 68", and the zipper quilt is 59" x 71".

The postage stamp quilt top was started about 7 months ago and it is 55.5" x 71.5" and contains 4032 1" finished squares.  The batik star quilt top was started almost 3 years ago and just needed its border to become a finished top measuring 74.5" x 100.5".  I was thankful ...

January 2020 monthly recap............. from Exuberant Color

3 finishes for January, I had hoped for 4, but 2 of these were large so I'm happy with the month's progress.  The 2 pastel quilts are so much prettier in person.  They look kind of washed out in the photos.  The 16 patch on the left is 54.5" x 70", the flannel quilt in the center is 70.5" x 88" and the 30s reproduction Trip Around the World is 69" x 92".
2 quilt tops were completed.  The Australian fabric equilateral triangle top is 55.5" x 69" and the Zipper quilt top is 60 ...

November 2019 monthly recap................... from Exuberant Color







I had 5 finishes in November and that felt really good.  I hope to end the year with less quilt tops than I started the year with.  The colorwash wallhangings varied in size from 28" to 35.5" x 53.5".  The red and gray quilt is 47" x 71".  This makes 21 finishes for the year so far.  

I finished one quilt top, 72" x 89".  I'm planning on quilting this one this month.  I'm in the middle of quilting the big African fabric quilt I basted a couple months ago so it will hopefully be a ...

October 2019 monthly recap.......... from Exuberant Color

I finally found time to make a collage of the finishes for October.  The cool colors colorwash is 26" x 31.5" and includes batiks, Kaffe, African, and other printed quilting cottons.

The pink and green 16 patch baby quilt measures around 35" after washing.  The larger pink and green 16 patch quilt was 47" x 62.5" before washing.  I haven't measured it since but since I did loops as the quilting design I'm sure it shrunk a little in crinkling up.

I finished one quilt top which measures 28" x 34".  My daughter has already claimed ...
