I thought I was finished!

I thought I had finished the twin quilts as I decided not to add a border. When I lay them out, I think they need a border. The pattern is a freebie at Me and My sister designs and has a wider border cut at 3.5 inches. I think I will make it the same size as the sashing cutting it at 2 inches

Bloggers Quilt Festival

It is time for the Blogger's Quilt Festival at Amy's Creative Side. My entry is a Carolyn Friedlander layer cake pop quilt. This quilt is a Fat Quarter Shop Shortcut Quilt Pattern. It is a very clever pattern. Easy to make and very effective.
I picked the fabrics that I thought my friend would like even though they didn't appeal to me at the time. I do love the finished product.

Modern Maples Placemats

I love the modern maples pattern and have made a table runner and a placemat using the pattern. I made two more recently. I really need to make a quilt with it!

September OMG

My goal this month is to finish the second flimsy. I have twin nieces and would like to give them both a quilt for Christmas this year.

Beachie Blocks

I have made the blocks for my Quilt using the Missouri Quilt Co Window pane 9 patch quilt. I am going to sash the blocks. I used green and blue Layer cake squares from Latitude by Kate Spain cut into charm squares.

August OMG

I did it. I quilted and bound this quilt within the month. I still haven't basted the quilt from the last 2 months so it was a good decision to set a new goal.
Here it is before washing. Once again it is hard to get a good photo showing the colours. It is the blueberry park low volume jelly roll.
 I love the fabric on the back although maybe I should have tried to match the circles or as I saw recently added a strip of solid where the backing meets.

Another new project

I love starting new projects and have given up trying to resist. I simply bought more plastic drawers to store my WIPs. I want to make a beachie quilt for a friend and after looking at lots of quilts on pinterest I came up with this design. I used the window pane disappearing 9 patch from Missouri Star Quilt Co and will put wide sashing between each block. I made one test block and I think it will look good.
