Joni is so dedicated….she started this Bonnie Hunter Mystery quilt…and she decided she didn’t like the original gray color that was suggested. So she ripped out each block and put in the dark chocolate brown ….it looks beautiful!! but I am not sure that I would have done all of that ripping…I really hate ripping. LOL
I quilted all over Charisma Curls. Bonnie always suggests all over designs.
I have no idea what the name of this quit is …other than sweet! I love all of Joni’s projects…..I can’t possibly keep up with her, though. This was so sweet to quilt up….I quilted straight lines in the center around the big flower. I like to mix some lines and curls in these wool projects…it helps break up the texture…but also it’s kind of a mix of traditional designs. So I added a bit of cross hatching and l’s.
I will be so happy when I can take pictures outside. These pictures give no justice to the whole quilt.
you can see a bit more of the quilting here on the back.
I can’t say that I have used much of my stash ….but again I am completing some of my UFO’s..which feels really good. I am not sure why I feel this need to complete them….it’s like I just have this need not to have anything hanging over me….or like I need to make use of every minute of quilting time that I have…I don’t know. But either way it feels nice to complete these.
I forgot to share my Side lights projects that I promised to share a few weeks ago. So here it is.
This is a perfect pattern to showcase that panel that you fell in love with and have no idea how to use….:)
I made this for my friend Carla…for her birthday. Purple is her favorite color and as soon as I saw this fabric line and that panel I knew I should make it for her. She loves quilts…and my work. She teases that she has a fabric addiction and she doesn’t even sew. haha! It was nice to finish but also to gift her something special for her birthday.
I also completed this chicken quilt. I had a panel of these fun, bright colored chickens..but I just didn’t know what to do with it. So I sent it to my Friend, Harmony. she put fun borders around them and made a small quilt. I added the red border and quilted the double bubble design on them…because they look like eggs. 🙂 it was an easy finish that didn’t take long. I don’t know why I let those small projects sit? can someone tell me why>?
I do get to add a little bit of yardage…I made a simple quilt to put on the longarm to make some youtube videos for my youtube channel. So I will add 3 yards.
Yards used to date: 36

I am not sure I should use the owner’s real name..because she has kind of a unique name….and she made this as a gift for her daughter’s anniversary…which isn’t for almost a year away ( boy she is ahead of the game..I need to be more often)
She let me have creative reighn to quilt how I wanted. So I did individual block work….and quilted l’s in the sashings, swirls in the inner border and flowers in the outer border.
It’s so difficult to see….I wish I could have gotten better pics!
The back shows the quilting a bit better….so you can at least get an idea of what I have done.:)
my days tend to blend together..I wish I could be a year ahead in my projects!
So you have Christmas quilts? Halloween quilts? Now is maybe the time to start them or finish them so they are ready in time.
