Finished a couple of customer quilts and received a swap!

April 4, 2017

I quilted these two lovely quilts for Sara…And the back…

I really enjoyed working on her Storm at Sea as well!I did a couple of specialty areas you can see here:

And last but not least, I received this awesome swap in the flickr “Triptych” swap on MQTS.Lots of awesome goodies, plus a beautiful triptych depicting the beauty of Utah! I’m working like a mad woman to get some quilts ready for UQSM (aka HMQS under new ownership due to the untimely passing of HMQS’s previous owner.)  2 more labels to make and 2 more quilts to block and then I can get back to my regularly scheduled program!

Thanks for stopping by!

Me and my little things…

March 15, 2017

We are swapping post cards in Layton Quilt Guild this year…  I wanted to show you what I did for the “It’s not easy being green” theme.

And here’s what I wrote on the back…

  I found the frog image online and drew him out with pencil.  I used “Inktense” pencils to color him with and then added “Textile Medium”.  I finished him off using a Micron pen to outline him.  I made the 3-D leaves using 2 pieces of fabric with fusible web between them and then stitched the edges.  I pulled them into a tuck to give them dimension!  3-D is so fun!

And last, but not least, I am working on this little “Triptych” quilt for a swap in the MQTS swap on flickr.  Now to get them bound!

Thanks for stopping by!!!

Busy busy!

And it’s not getting ready to slow down anytime soon!

I have Bryce Winter Retreat coming up in a few weeks and plan on trying to get all of my client quilts done before I go…

Here is a quilt that I quilted for Lisa S.  What a fun quilt!100_5577And the back so you can see the quilting a little easier….100_5579I’m also working on a 50 Shades of Red swap on Flickr in the Mini QT Swap.

I found the center heart image on Free Heart Clip Art.  Love it!!!100_5622And I finished the Wonky House Quilts that we made in Roy Quilt Guild using mine and Silvana’s Patterns that were featured in The National Quilting Associations, “Quilting Quarterly”, although we did ours in 6 inches instead of 4.

100_5591Guild Members had to bring in their finished house block and they got a freebie tree block!  It really encouraged people to get their houses done!

And last but not least, I quilted this gorgeous quilt for my friend Susan H.  100_5582It was too mucky outside to get a picture of the whole thing,  but I quilted all 5o blocks with different backgrounds.  Talk about challenging!!!  Susan got these blocks at a yard sale.  The blue border fabric had bled onto the light backgrounds so the owner got rid of them.  Susan removed the offending fabric and was able to get out the blue coloring.  Didn’t this come out great?!

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!  😉

Going “Coastal”…

September 5, 2016

Working on Pieces and Parts for my Coastal Swap on MQTS on flickr…  I drafted out my design and I’m starting with my piecing.  I decided to make 2 of them, one for me and one for my partner.  100_5348

Yes, I know my cutting board looks like crap, but it’s just a leftover I’m making use of!

100_5350The main piece is together!    I’m so glad I get to keep one!

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!

Ta da!!! 5 3/8ths inch square!!!

July 30, 2016

I asked myself, “Can I do it?”  The answer is, “Yes I can!”

Here is the completed Teeny Tiny quilt swap that I am making for my partner on flickr in the MQTS  (Mini QT Swap) group.  I’ve made 2 of them so I could keep one for myself…  (Although mine is different colors/layout!)

100_5137I don’t know if you remember or not, but my mini quilt “Wee Red and White Delight was made using 1.5 inch blocks finished.  This one is 1 inch finished blocks…  I don’t think I want to try it any smaller.  (Unless…)

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!

What I’ve received…

As you may all know by now, I’m a bit of a swap addict!  I’ve done a couple of swaps on flickr in the MQTS (Mini QT Swap) group.  These are a few fun things that I’ve received!

This is the beautiful little Redwork Mini that I received from Lesliecan’tstopquilting…  Isn’t it divine?  And if this isn’t enough, Leslie also with the help of Marilyn and Pattiann (group Mama’s) sent out all the goodies in this package!

127_0975

I had sent out a cat mini swap that hadn’t been acknowledged or reciprocated.  (It does happen occasionally…)  They got together and sent me all this kitty awesomeness!  Thanks again Leslie, Marilyn, and Pattiann!  XOXO  You’re the best!

And this is what I received from my partner for the Little Bag Swap…

Tammy was my partner for this swap and her work is exceptional!!!

This is what was inside the little sewing kit…

Wow!  What an awesome job Tammy did!  Thank you so much Tammy!  Exquisite work!

That’s pretty much why I’m addicted to swapping!  Nothing beats a great partner!!!

Halloween Bunting Swap…

September 6, 2015

I decided to make a haunted castle for the Halloween Bunting Swap on Mini QT Swap on flickr…  I love a wonky house with fussy cut goodies in the windows and doors!  (Who doesn’t?  LOL!)  Anyhoo, thought you might like to see how they came out…
