Magnolia Mystery Quilt Finish {2018-10-25}

Way back in the day, I mean summer, I joined a mystery QAL hosted and designed by Meadow Mist Designs. I stayed up on the QAL through the months, though I surprise myself with every finish at how long it takes to actually get the quilt over the finish line.  Once the flimsy is finished, … Continue reading Magnolia Mystery Quilt Finish {2018-10-25}

Fall into a QAL Block 9, Turkey

Another great and fun block this week! Designed by Karen at Tu-Na Quilts, Postage Stamp Turkey block is composed of 64 2' finished squares. I had no cooperation from the wind on photo day, and imagine my experience matches that of a free range Turkey being plumped on someone,s farm (clearly not Purdue). Super excited … Continue reading Fall into a QAL Block 9, Turkey

Fall into a QAL Block 8 {2018 08 27}

I keep saying "oh this is my favorite block" with each new block release in this Fall into QAL then the new block is released and I have a new favorite.  Sigh.  All of which is to say that the designers in this group are rocking it and I have many favorites.  Their creativity and variety … Continue reading Fall into a QAL Block 8 {2018 08 27}

Halloween Placemats – No Scrap Left Behind 2017-10-11

Remember that Halloween Jelly Roll Quilt I posted about last month?  I had a bee in my bonnet to use up the scraps up sooner rather than later and really didn't want to chop them up into random squares for my library of scraps.  I had 3 weeks left to Halloween so I set off to … Continue reading Halloween Placemats – No Scrap Left Behind 2017-10-11

Halloween Jelly Roll Quilt 2017-09-27

My son gets super excited about Halloween early each year, as in mid-September, several weeks ahead of the holiday itself.  As he decorated mid month, diligently rearranging all the house with our Halloween decor, I realized we had no Halloween quilt in the house and Mr. C. declared we needed a scary one.  The project … Continue reading Halloween Jelly Roll Quilt 2017-09-27

Wayward Transparency QAL

I am excited that Yvonne Fuchs from Quilting Jetgirl is hosting another quilt-along called Wayward Transparency QAL  I enjoy her patterns and she offers easy to follow tutorials and guidance along the way. Last year she hosted the Summer Snowflake Shimmer QAL which was a fun project resulting in a very generous sized quilt for our … Continue reading Wayward Transparency QAL

WIP Wednesday 2017-09-14

Slowly making progress on multiple projects, with encouragement from The Inquiring Quilter.  If you recall, I noted on Wednesday Wait Loss 31 Feature that I had been the newbie highlighted in Jennifer Fulton's blog.  What a delightful surprise and a nudge to my keeping myself accountable on my projects! With that in mind, here's a … Continue reading WIP Wednesday 2017-09-14

Milky Way Sampler QAL Block 9

I've been quietly building a collection of blocks from the Milky Way Sampler QAL from Alyce at Blossom Heart Quilts.  It is a very fun series of stars and I'm making two quilts (one for school auction and one for home). This block, called Betelgeuse, got interesting with its bulky seams.  The paper piecing process … Continue reading Milky Way Sampler QAL Block 9
