EQ Mods 16, 17 from Virtual Quilter

EQ Mods 16

Warm old fashioned colours … looks like it should be made from wool fabric for the northern hemisphere winter.

EQ Mods 17

Light … and much cooler for southern hemisphere! Mind you, the flowers should be a cooler colour, but these match the one miniature rose which is flowering happily in our current hot spell.

Christmas decorations from I Patch and Quilt

The first Christmas celebration in my new house was a big event!


The family came to my house on Christmas Day.  This year we organized our family celebrations a bit differently in the ‘dinner-department’. Everybody had brought something to eat, which made putting dinner on the table for a large group of people so much easier. In previous years, my parents had always organized this family gathering all by themselves, but now it is us kids’ job… and I was first up!

We thoroughly enjoyed ourselves with each others company, the fun little gifts (lots of socks… ha ha!) and ...

birch trees from Making A Lather

As one of my rainbow scrap challenge quilts for 2018, I am making birch trees. I started by making a few string blocks in more upbeat colors. I cut one strip 2 inches wide and 2 strips 1 1/2 inches wide.
I cut the main blocks 12 inches to start with, and I trimmed them to 12 inches after adding the pieced strips.

The quilts I have seen that I like the best are done with solid colors. I was going to use any light blue scraps I liked in my drawer, but they were all too busy, so ...

turtle top from Making A Lather

I have sewn the rows together for Mr. Turtle quilt. It is so very cute. I just love it.

I even made a special label for the back and the flannel back pieced.

and I have the binding together from scrappy bits.

Maybe, this will get finished soon. The quilting frame is empty. It shouldn't be, but I could quick sneak this in the line.
There was a soaping disaster yesterday. I missed the mold a little bit. sigh....
At least it will be easy to clean

Charity Quilting from Becca's Crazy Projects

I made a big push to get a handful of charity quilts quilted before the January Annapolis Quilts for Kids workshop. 
There were so many great quilts from 2017 that didn't get quilted before December so they were waiting for the beginning of the year. 

It was nice to get them quilted up.
In January I passed nine quilts to other members of the group to get the binding done. I have more pieced tops ready for quilting so I have plenty to keep me busy in 2018.

2018 Charity Quilt Count: 5

Mein erster Quilt in 2018 from Quilt Collection M.

Der erste Quilt des Jahres 2018 ist fertig! 2018 soll ja das Jahr der Ufo-Fertigstellung werden. Und hier ist das erste Ufo. Begonnen wurde der Quilt als Bee-Quilt im Juni 2017. Die To Be a Bee Ladies haben fleissig die kleinen Quadrate aneinander genäht. Gequiltet zwischen den Jahren und jetzt ist schon das Binding dran. Ich kann es gar nicht glauben! Sogar das Binding ist dran und tatsächlich von mir selber dran genäht!

The first quilt of 2018 is finished! 2018 is supposed to be the year of finishing my quilts. This quilt  was started in June 2017. The ladies ...

Little Lamb Leaping Quilt from Sew Fresh Quilts

This Little Lamb is leaping into my heart! I love that sweet face... and those ears.... and those leaping legs.. and that wee tail!

The backing is Widescreen in Grey for Robert Kaufman Fabrics. It matches well with the Architextures in Grey, also by Robert Kaufman Fabrics, used to make the lamb.

Although I had considered making a white lamb, when I found the Architextures in my stash, I went with having a grey lamb. The background is Zenith in Turquoise from the Bear Essentials collection by P&B TextilesThe quilting was performed using a light grey on top ...

Boldly Sewn. from Dueling Threads

Whew, finished!   Do you know that feeling?

This quilt was based on the zipper quilt that I saw in one of the Missouri Star Quilt Company’s Block magazines.  You can watch Jenny Doan’s tutorial at the link below.

The Zipper Quilt – Quilting Made Easy

The main thing I changed was to start with 10″ squares (layer cakes) instead of charm packs.  I used one layer cake and some Star Trek yardage that my husband and I stashed away over the last few years.  The result is an extra long, king size, Star Trek zipper quilt.

A quilt of ...

Hippo Blue Quilt from Quilt Fabrication

This post contains affiliate links for which I receive small compensation for any purchases made through these links - thank you for your support.

It's a wrap!

Hippo Blue quilt on the grass

Or should I say, it's a quilt? Either way, the top using techniques from my January Book of the Month selection, Improv Patchwork, now consists of three layers, held together by stitches - the definition of a quilt!

Introducing Hippo Blue, because it's blue and there's hippos. How creative is that?

I'm happy with how this ultimately turned out, though I do wish I would have incorporated the orange sooner ...

making more soap from Making A Lather

more soap. This batch included hyacinth, gardenia, and bird of paradise. I am not a flowery person. But the overall smell in the house was wonderful. I included goats milk, shea butter, mango butter.

I feel a little behind on my rainbow challenges, and my turtle quilt has reached a stalemate. I have the turtle applique panel together. I may not have anything to report by the weekend. Have you noticed that if you concentrate on one thing, something gets neglected?

16 Of 56 from Wedding Dress Blue

The Halfway quilt is also coming along.  Two large projects going at the same time can be a little discouraging because it is a long time to a finish.

Maybe I will be able to do some quilting on one of the waiting tops to make myself feel better.


In the meantime, I keep piecing.  I have used nearly all of the original half-square triangles from the scrap box.  Now I have to sort, cut, stitch and trim as I go.  That is slowing the process down, but I hope to get a few blocks a week done until near ...
