Time to Catch Up! from TheEclecticAbuela

I finally got some photos of the work I've been doing.


Donation Quilts

I cut flannel scraps to make donation quilts. You can see the first batch HERE. They were kid size and made with kids' prints. The next ones were for adults.

Two with many florals

Three with plaids, stripes, and more

I layered them on the fence to take photos. They aren't identical, but they are made with the same mix of fabrics. All five are 60" x 72" and are backed with flannel.


I've been using my 3.5" squares as Leaders/Enders this ...

I'm Still Here! from TheEclecticAbuela

I've been quiet, but I'm still here. I need to take a bunch of pictures to show you what I've been up to, but for today, I thought I'd show you what is under the needle right now.

I've been intimidated by Bonnie Hunter's Orca Bay quilt, but I finally decided that I could do it. Here are some of the friends who are helping me:

Gasp…my thread broke! from Gray Barn Designs

Cindy here, reporting in from New York.   The big GRAY BARN is in view through a misty rain.  Mom, dad and I are just relaxing and hoping the sun will shine sometime today.  Good thing I brought a few quilting projects with me!

A few months ago, Sandy scored big at an antique store…10 antique red and white Ohio Star blocks.  These unfinished blocks measure 11 x 11 inches square.


I like how the blocks were pieced by hand, very special!


Sandy and I have created three different projects from these 10 blocks.  You’ll see our feature project ...

Lotsa Dots--A Mystery Quilt from TheEclecticAbuela

You know me--I love mystery quilts!

A friend of mine on a quilting forum provides mysteries for quilters who enjoy mystery projects. I have made several of her quilts, and though I lagged behind on this one, I did get it finished.

Meet Lotsa Dots!

Most of the fabrics came from scraps and stash, though I did buy the sashing and backing fabrics for the project.

Progress has been Made this week from BedofRosesMQ

One thing and another has kept me from getting things done this winter. Now that the weather is trying to get better here in Southern Idaho I have been able to play in the quilt room this past week. I managed to get two tops finished and ready to be quilted. Now if I can just keep that up. These aren't my best pictures the day was cloudy so the light was not good. Also the flash on the camera created a washed out spot on the Ohio Star quilt. Anyway you get the idea. Both of these were ...

Scale Change and an Ohio Star Quilt: AHIQ 30 from Fret Not Yourself

Reading Kaja's prompt reminded me of a scrap quilt I made years ago. The small shoofly and star squares were from a block exchange. Because we traded two blocks at once, most of the resulting quilts were very similar - an alternate set like the center of mine.

I didn't have many blocks, didn't want to make more but also wanted a queen-size quilt. As everyone knows I've always loved interesting borders. Setting the small blocks in a really large star was my solution. The navy points were too severely dark so I exchanged part of one ...

Making an Ohio Star Block using Accuquilt Go and Die from BedofRosesMQ

This is a tutorial to show how I use the Ohio Star Die # 55174 to make this quilt. The Ohio Star Die cuts the 4.5"quarter square triangles used to make the star points for the block and it also cut five 4.5 " square which are the corner blocks and the center block of the square. Both the quarter square triangles and the square finish at 4". In this quilt I used 12 blocks set 3 x 4.

As you can see I have marked my die with the size of the blocks. To this measurement I added ...

Update 7 – 2017 Buckeye Ties from Lotus Cove Quilting

Will this quilt be finished by the Genesee Valley Quilt Club’s deadline? I have to deliver it on Tuesday, May 30 for judging for the 2017 QuiltFest. I’m averaging two stars a day, so in theory I have time to complete the blocks, sew them together, and quilt. There are 49 Ohio Star quilt blocks making one huge Ohio Star, so 50 in all. If you squint a bit, you can see the white star points beginning to emerge.
