Unicorn One Block Wonder - Fairy Tale Blog Hop from Quilted Delights

 

Welcome to day two of the Fairy Tales Blog Hop hosted by Joan of Moose Stash Quilting.

Hopefully you are not sick of seeing One Block Wonders, this is my third post in a row with them, but I couldn't resist sewing this panel up for this hop.  Unicorns with beautiful colors and a castle glowing in the background... all kind of fairy tale goodness going on here.  




I got tired of flipping the ruler back and forth cutting one strip at a time into triangles, so I laid out all my strips and cut them one way then ...

Mosaic Mystery Quilt {Quilt Top} from Little Bunny Quilts

It's been a LONG time since I posted about this project -- last year in fact! The construction directions were released in January, I printed them out, and only now finally managed to finish the quilt top. 

Because my burgundy fabrics were cut from three different fabrics and not from one fabric, I arranged the units so that a single fabric was used for an entire star. I ended up needing to make a few extra units as I put the rows together, but I had plenty of extra fabric. I didn't end up doing that with the pink ...

BRMQG Retreat! from Fleur de Lis Quilts and Accessories

Oh my goodness! I had such fun at the Baton Rouge MQG retreat! We stayed at the River Retreat House in Baton Rouge.


 It's a beautiful brick home with a studio area that wraps around the side and back of the home. It sleeps 11 but can accommodate more in the studio if there are some day-sewers who can't spend the night. 
I worked on four projects: my Sugaridoo BOM row, two postcards for my sister, an easy 8" square top, and an improv top using some of my text fabrics. 

But let's talk about my friends ...

Chrysanthemum Quilt Top {June Island Batik Project} from Little Bunny Quilts

This month's theme for the Island Batik Ambassadors is more of a lack of theme! This month we were given free rein to make whatever our quilters' hearts desired!



For my project, I decided to finish a secret sewing project that I had started way back in March! This is the first block that I finished:


One of the reasons this started as a secret sewing project is that I originally planned (and maybe still plan?) for this quilt design to be a quilt along project and potentially a mystery quilt along project. With 2020 being the crazy year ...

Daisy Chain Baby -- Part II {Quilt Top} from Little Bunny Quilts

Over the weekend, I finished up the quilt top of the Daisy Chain baby quilt I have been working on.


All I had to do was sew the nine blocks together...


... and then add the borders!


I actually just squeaked by with enough green fabric for the borders! I still have plenty of the pink fabric that I used for the stars, so I will be using that for the binding.

On my task list this week is ordering some flannel for the backing!

Color it Red Blog Hop from Quilted Delights

Welcome to my day of the Color It Red Blog Hop!  Hosted by Carol of Just Let Me Quilt.

All we had to do to play along was make a project that had red in it.
Today I am showing off what I made with some of my favorite shades from my stash.


I call it Diamond Bars.

There are twelve different red fabrics in this one.
I used my 9 inch Creative Grid equilateral ruler to cut out all my triangles and angled strips.

The quilt has two different type triangles, one with a small inner white triangle and ...

Retreat Stitching Success from From the Strawberry Patch...

This little beauty (quilt measures 45" square) is the 2012 Summer Sampler Sew-along from the Temecula Quilt Company blog. I had half of the 4" blocks

Origami – Layer Cake Quilt Pattern: Kate Spain version from Blossom Heart Quilts

My latest pattern, Origami, is justĀ perfect for layer cakes! Especially the small bed sized quilt – it has 42 blocks, which is the exact same number as pieces in a Moda layer cake. And I had one of those lying around – Voyager by Kate Spain. So I added in a couple of fat quarters of coordinating solids for the folded corners, and off I went!

Layer cake quilt pattern

I really can’t emphasise how quick a pattern this is to make, especially when using a layer cake. Stack and whack, baby, stack and whack! What that means is that I had 3-4 pieces ...

New material coming! from Maria the Quilter

I know you probably come here for the photos, because, well let’s be honest: in the quilting world, words mean far less than photos. I can explain a stitch but when you see a picture of it, that’s WAY more meaningful. In person? EVEN better!

What I’m here to say is that I am here. I haven’t been posting pix – I had a bit of an issue with my tools but am almost back to full capability there. I have been busy writing on my personal blog (here).

So in the meantime, PLEASE please visit my ...
