Missing in action, or Too busy to be believed?

September 16, 2016

Yes, I am still in the land of the living.  I told my friend Susie that I hadn’t been on the computer in about a week.

She’s said, “I think it’s been longer than that!”  Well, sure enough, it’s been almost 2 weeks!

I have been sewing sewing sewing…  Here are a few of the things I’ve been working on…

100_5352I quilted this quilt for my “Quilty Hugs” group that donates to local charities.  Emily with http://www.auntemsquilts.com/ has a group that meets with her once a month to work on these quilts…

100_5359This is Roy Quilt Guild members who have finished working on their mystery quilts.  (Okay, the 2 on the left are mine as I taught the mystery!)  I’ll post more next month as the tops come in…

100_5371And here’s my little quilt at the fair…  😉

100_5394This is Susie’s quilt that I quilted for her which she created using Emily’s pattern!  (I love that!)

100_5397I quilted this for a client!

100_5400And last, but not least is my “Going Coastal” quilty for the MQTS group on flickr.

It’s a pattern that I revamped a bit from a previous mini quilt that I designed.

I wanted something that represented Patrick’s State Park in California where we camped this summer.

Whew!

Thanks for stopping by!  I’ll try to be better next time!  😉

Teeny Tiny Quilt Swap!!!

August 17, 2016

Yes, I’m still a swap-a-holic…  The Mini QT Swap on flickr just offered a teeny tiny quilt swap.  I had to play along as I love Mini minis!!

This fabulous package came in the mail today!100_5182

100_5183

My partner made me the sweetest little mini quilt…  She measures 5 inches square!!!  So sweet!  Thank you thank you Thank you Cindy!  (aka yayaquilter)  I just love it!

Thanks for stopping by!

All finished! Plus a little FMQ’ing…

August 5, 2016

I got my mini mini all quilted!  I am of the opinion that a mini quilt needs mini quilting and binding.  I love the idea of making them to scale, although binding is pretty hard to make that small…  But here it is!

100_5144

It measures 5 1/2 inches square!  Woot!  Woot!

Our local guilds are participating in Utah Quilt Guild’s “Ruby Jubilee”.  They have requested that all of the guilds create a red and white quilt to celebrate their big birthday next year.  The quilts will go in a traveling show featured at numerous sites.  I quilted and headed up Roy Quilt Guild’s red and white quilt which was designed by Patsy Shelton, member extraordinaire, and helped create the blocks for Layton Quilt Guild’s red and white quilt.  Lorri Bashein designed and headed up Layton’s quilt.  I am in the process now of quilting it…  What a fun quilt!

I saw this border on FB and thought it was so beautiful that I had to try it…  I really like it!  It’s perfect for a little bit wider sashing filler!

I’m doing this one all FMQ (free motion quilting).  Thanks for stopping by!

How small is too small?!

July 28, 2016

Yes, I do have a thing for little quilts!  The Mini QT Swap on flickr decided to do a tiny quilt swap, less than 6 inches, so I knew I had to play!  (Even though I’ve sworn off swapping.  It’s mini, I had to do it!  Oh, and next month is “Beach” theme, so I have to do that one as well!)

Anyhoo, staying to making my favorite block/quilt, I decided to do a mini NYB.  16 1 inch blocks.  Yes, I am nuts!  But they’re so cute…  And tiny…

100_5125

Here are the arcs waiting for the applique pieces to finish them…

100_5126

I’m making 2 of them as I already know I’ll want to keep the one I’m making!

So that’s the question…  How small is too small?!

Thanks for visiting!

A few little projects that I’ve been working on…

April 6, 2016

Yes, I know…  I haven’t been around much lately, but I have so many projects that I’m working on!  Here’s a little peek…

102_1086Close-up on a friends quilt…  This was a fun one!

102_1092And a couple of mugrugs I quilted for another friend!

102_1088And last but not least, my furry helper is showing you the last quilt top that I’ve completed…

102_1052I did this as an online mystery with several friends.  I kept sewing my rows on wrong and unpicked the same row 4 times!  Mey!  I added the braid around the edge to finish it off…  Yeah!  Now to put it in the “Needs to be quilted” pile.

Thanks for visiting!!!

A Little Something…

February 18, 2016

Just wanted to show you all a little something I’m working on…  I’ll post more pictures after I enter it in a quilt show or two!

127_1005Because I am going to enter this into competition, I’ll go through with a red Micron pen and color all of those white stitches red so they won’t show.  I always use a light colored thread so I have the option of coloring it!  Thanks for stopping by!

Hmmm… I don’t think I ever showed this one! LOL!

December 3, 2015

In Layton Quilt Guild we did a “I Heard it on Vinyl” challenge.  Were were supposed to create a quilt based on a vinyl record.

Well, any excuse to make a Wizard of Oz theme quilt is good enough for me!  Mine is based on, you guessed it~  “Somewhere Over the Rainbow”! performed by Judy Garland.  Here is my interpretation:127_0824

I paper pieced mine.  I saw a quilt several years ago on flickr that I loved that inspired me to make this one…  It was created by Lolablueocean.  Mine is considerably different, but has the same feeling!  I love me some text fabric!

Thanks for visiting!

Yay! Always love receiving a swap quilty…

October 19, 2015

I joined in a swap using Kaffe fabrics on Facebook a few months ago…  Today, my package arrived all the way from Australia!!!

This is the awesome package I received from Sharon!127_0774Lots of fun goodies included!  Chocolates, a pin box with a fun little pin inside, tea bags, and a charm pack!  And the quilt is a real stunner!!!

If you will remember, I sent this little quilt to my partner…

127_0753This was such a fun swap!  Mine was mailed to the Netherlands…  I love swapping internationally!  It is so fun!

And last for today, I wanted to show you the quilt I started in a class on the 1st of October.  I worked like a mad woman on it…  Surprise surprise!

127_0778Still working on borders, but it came out great!  It’s one of Quiltvilles pattern with a twist…  From the Scrappy Trip Around the World.

Thanks for visiting!

And here’s a little more progress…

August 31, 2015

The deadline for the Utah State Fair is rapidly approaching…  I’ll share my challenge quilt when the Fair opens!  Before the deadline on Thursday, I have to get my label made and sewn on.  I also have to get the quilt ready for hanging.  It’s almost there!

These are some projects that I’ve been working on as well…

127_0650This is a “Happy Chemo” quilt that is going to be turned in this week.

127_0647I got this one quilted for m partner in the Kaffe Mini Quilt Swap.  The deadline for that is coming up as well!

127_0648This is another layout of the same quilt, with the blocks positioned differently.

(You may see something similar with my Fair Challenge Quilt, but shhhh….  Don’t tell!)

I have 2 more client quilts to get quilted, but both are relatively small.  More coming soon!  Thanks for stopping by…

A couple of projects…

June 10, 2015

I have been working on a few things recently and thought I’d share!

In the Mini QT Swap we did the theme, “Furry Purries”…  I made this little quilt for my partner, Quilt Monster.  I used pictures of her two cats

to pick from Free Coloring Pages for my pattern.  I tweaked them to resemble hers!

Here they are from my Furry Purries!121_0493Poukie, Lexi, and Arnold.

121_0487Grey Boy (in front), Lexi, Arnold, and Milo.  Yes, mine look bored!

And last but not least, a special little project I’ve been working on for a friend…

121_0502I stuck with feathers going up and down to speed things up!  The recipient will receive this tomorrow…

Thanks for visiting!
