Pieced Patched and Pretty Quilted 1 from Virtual Quilter

Another one from the lost and found box. I think my virtual quilt UFO collection is rivalling my real UFO collection.

I like the fabrics, like the mix of pieced and applique, like the border … and it would look right at home in our bedroom!

Another one to add to possible future real projects!

Quilts by the Bay from Becca's Crazy Projects

I try to attend a few local quilt shows a year. The closer the show is to my house, the more likely I am to attend. The Annapolis Quilt Guild's Quilts by the Bay is one of my favorites. 
There are often used tools you can pick up, like this embroidery machine for about half the original price. (Similar to this one available from Amazon.) 
Or homemade treats such as this cornucopia of fudge. There were so many flavors!
It was great to see a trio of Good Fortune quilts hanging together. From the left: quilt-makers Marilyn O'Loughlin ...

This is my version of Annette's block. Her block is really scrappy and wonderful!  And I love her family tradition that sparked her block, I need a tradition like that!  Today I have a family portrait of both  my 6 blocks and the Designer's 6 blocks. Plus my thoughts on fabric/color for my blocks. 

Remember to make and enter your block ...

blue crayon from Making A Lather

I didn't get much blue sewing done this week for the rainbow scrap challenge. I had a steroid injection in my back and it was fine, but stressing over it had me a little blah. I did sew a blue crayon together for the crayon quilt.

I started making little tulip blocks, just for fun. It is a new Bonnie Hunter pattern in quiltmaker magazine called blossom time. Each block requires very little thinking or fabric, so I grabbed a scrappy bucket and cut a few just to try. My only problem is borrowing little 4 patches from the ...

Quilting Jane’s Starr 4 from Virtual Quilter

The easiest way to design the quilting of a quilt … just use the lines of the block design, even when you use a solid block of the background fabric instead of the pieced block.

lightening and liberty from Making A Lather

I have finished a few more blocks for my string block that I am calling lightening. I think I need 4 more blocks and then I will make it a quilt.... or not. But, I have cleaned up the area and even vacuumed, so I am hesitant to start the mess. I swear, the strings just go flying.

My women's group at church had a patriotic themed crafty evening. They said bring your own project if you want. Why not a quilt that I have started and need to finish. Other than my daughter's quilt, this is probably ...

The Mermaid from Becca's Crazy Projects

Part 3

This is going to be so many parts. I'm still working through my collection of batik fabrics. I didn't expect the hair to read as red as it does in this image but I really like it.
Building up the layers from the bottom.
I finished up the hair. 
I don't know if I would have picked these fabrics at the fabric store, but when you shop your collection of fabric you make do. 
The applique is finished. Next up will be the quilting. I'm going to let her hang so I can think ...
