A Pile of Mini Mini Quilts from Goer

Welcome to my stop on Bobbie's UFOvember Blog Hop. I shared an intro post with the list of everyone participating in UFOvember at the beginning of the month and a few days ago I shared a list (with photos) of all my WIPs. (I realized today I missed one, so it's been aded to the list.) I find that knowing what all the projects are helps me make decisions about prioritizing what to work on. This week folks were resuming a UFO. "Pick up a UFO right where you left off, get it done, happy ending!"

With a ...

Land That I Love Finale! from Humble Quilts

The finished quilt as shown will be approx 18x26.5
Many of you were concerned about the busy prints and fabrics. I chose blue (like the antique) which does calm it down a bit.   (do you find my error humble design element? I only noticed after it was entirely completed.

Choose your fabric and cut:
(2) 6 1/2" squares
The following are a tad oversized to give you some wiggle room for trimming after getting your top together. 
(2) 5 1/2" squares then cut once on the diagonal to make 4 triangles. These will be your 4 corners ...

Quilting and A Glamping from Humble Quilts

Ever heard of Glamping? Its a mix of camping and glamour. Inside our large tent was a bed and a lot of amenities for those who may not like to camp. It was a lovely gift from our employees. 
I'd like to point out on the empty chair is the 2021 Humble Quilts quiltalong that I am hand quilting! 

On our way to our weekend of glamping we hiked to Green Lakes in the Three Sisters Wilderness. 
This is South Sisters which is a popular mountain to summit. (I've done it twice) 

Looking the other direction is Broken ...

Intriguing Interleaves from Seaside Stitches

What a fun workshop this was! Mel Beach taught Intriguing Interleaves to Ninigret Quilters via Zoom in February. It is a quilt-as-you-go method, which means when the piecing is done, so is the quilting! How satisfying to have a completed project so soon after taking a class, and not another UFO for the pile!


 
Mel is an outstanding teacher who utilizes all the technology at her disposal to maximize student engagement in the virtual environment. She's the best we've seen since we started Zooming in April 2020.

I'm not going to get into the process here, but ...

Two Tiny Finishes from Wedding Dress Blue

These two tiny quilts were stitched in the final days of 2020.

What a nice way to end the year.

This one was out of the cutest orphan blocks I have ever seen.

This one is a top I started years ago from a quiltalong at Temecula Quilt Company. They always have cute (little) ideas available.

Glad to have them finished!

50 Shades of Brown Finale from Humble Quilts

Here is my finished top! I used 4 different directional fabrics for the border! 
Fun and humble!
My border is cut 2 1/2" wide. Depending on how you want to add your border, you'll need to figure out the length for your quilt.

I lightened this up so you could see the quilting. 
The top border has unmarked diagonal lines. The left border has the same unmarked lines going in a different direction then the top. 
The right border I quilted straight lines across  the little "arrows" randomly spaced apart. 
The bottom has quilting lines going across from ...

50 Shades of Brown part 2 from Humble Quilts

Now cut 18 2 1/2" brown squares using various shades and prints of brown. The original little quilt has quite a bit of striped and one way fabric in it. 
I layed mine out somewhat like the original, having the 2 pink blocks near each other and the blue off by itself.  There was no rhyme or reason/light and dark on the layout.  It was super scrappy and humble!


 

Then piece the top together.  I don't have a photo without the border. But this layout is how I piece most of my quilts. 

What makes this quilt ...

50 Shades of Brown Part 1 from Humble Quilts

 Good morning! I had such a wonderful week away!! 26+ miles backpacking, then 3 days in a cute little cabin with my honey to recover and be ready to get back to work. It was pretty amazing!! I'll share a few photos on Wednesday. 

For now, we are going to make 4 patches for 50 Shades of Brown.

I told you there was a smidge of pink and blue. This is what is in my quilt. I did NOT strip piece these because I want a big variety. These are 1 1/2" squares. If you want it like ...

50 Shades of Brown Quiltalong from Humble Quilts

If you would like to sewalong here's a sampling of the various shades of browns I used. The quilt is going to measure approx 14"x18" so it's likely you really won't need 50!! LOL 
If you watched the video from last Friday you know I mentioned a teeny bit of pink (4- 1 1/2" squares) and a teeny bit of blue (2- 1 1/2" squares) 
You'll be surprised at how many different shades of brown there is. Some are tinted with yellow, some are a bit more red. If you lay them out ...

Blog plus Vlog from Rose Prairie Quilts and Farm






We are half way through 2020 and personally I hope the second half is better than the first but right now in the United States and here in Oklahoma it's not.

I'm remaining to stay home, no eating out or any indoor crowds and wearing my mask every time I go out. 

The good thing about spending more time home I have to say is I've gotten my creative mojo back this past month. 

And also has given me time to think about how I can blog more and improve what I'm trying to share.

So ...

Revolution from Humble Quilts

I felt a need to make a little quilt to document what's going on in America right now.

 This is something I've had in my head  for a few weeks now. I finally got some time in my sewing room! Whoop! Whoop!
My test block- F
I posted this on my Facebook group and it wasn't really recognizable as the letter F.
I used Cheri Payne's letter pattern and paper pieced them. They finish at 3 1/2".

I got the letters made but had to mull around how I was going to set them. 
Other ...

Hamilton Ridge from Humble Quilts


Here's a little quilt I just finished last night. I haven't even washed it yet. 

I'm calling it Hamilton Ridge since that is where we camped last weekend and I got most of the hand quilting completed while there.   Am waiting to hear from one person about a quilt she may or may not have sent (not international) My intent is to send this to the person who hasn't received a quilt in the swap. 


Here is my inspiration antique little quilt. I'm positive I made one similar for a swap in the past. I ...

Apple Brown Betty from Humble Quilts

 Here is a little quilt I made for a swap. It was on Cheri Payne's blog and this was a swap using one of her designs or patterns. It is called Apple Brown Betty and my partner's name was Betty so I thought it was fitting.
This color is a bit more accurate. I had some cute little blocks already made so I used them

  Definitely primitive!! lol

Here was Cheri's little quilt. 
I don't think my partner was too thrilled with it. She may have been expecting something more pictorial. I asked some friends if ...

Mid Week Musings... from Humble Quilts

Dale made the cheddar cheese and crackers little quilt and here it is ready for quilting! Isn't is adorable? The directions are on my blog HERE.  Thanks for sharing with me Dale!!
I got the most interesting email after posting this toile. See the horseshoe on the chimney? I didn't either, but a keen blog reader did! From Wendy Coffin, who I assume is related to the original owner: 

Thought you’d like to know the house in your toile is The Jethro Coffin House on Nantucket, also known as the Oldest House, built as a wedding present ...
