November 2020

 Here's the November 2020 quilts for your viewing pleasure!!  What a great month it was, enjoy the show!

Barbara's covid project.  Yep, this had been a UFO haunting her and she was determined to get it finished with so much time on her hands.  What a great accomplishment!  



Alyssa finished up this beautiful quilt and it was under the Christmas tree as a gift for her parents.  What a sweetheart!  Great job on picking all of the beautiful blues and blue greens for this wonderful quilt.




Pam just had way too much fun with the next two quilts.  Starting with the bookshelf quilt for her daughter, then the sailboat quilt for her son-in-law. Both of these fun quilts were under the Christmas tree this past Christmas and I'm sure they were a hit. 



 
I believe Pam paper pieced these sail boats, they are just perfect!  The quilt was made for her son-in-law and the center boat with the number 12 is meant to be just like the one he raced in a regatta. 




Next up we have quilts from Shirley.  Scrappy and great stash busters!  Shirley's first quilt is the split Nine Patch that she's used white as the solid really making the color pop!  Selecting yellow and blue as the border colors worked very well on this quilt. Finishing it off with a simple quilting design completes this great quilt.




Another quilt from Shirley, I've added this one to my bucket list!  LOVE IT!!




Shirley's last quilt, well of course I'm lovin' it too!!  It's all blues and just wonderful! Shirley always has me use two layers of batting giving her quilt more depth with the quilting and making them super warm.



How sweet are these baby quilts from Leslie?  Working with flannel on the first one makes it softer than soft and you know it's just going to be loved! Modern design and fabrics, so fun. 



Very modern and a great way to use a large piece of focus fabric!  Bright colors for the flying geese really brightens up this baby quilt.




 Lisa's quilt is amazing!  Her use of color is perfect for the modern design of this quilt pattern.  The dark fabric is perfectly placed giving this quilt great depth.



Nancy kept my machines busy for a couple of days with the following quilts.  Her first quilt is a simple square matched with a cute polka dot print that pairs very well with all of the other prints. Adding a fun green border makes this one super.



Got Scraps?  Here's another great scrap stash buster.



How simply wonderful is this one?  LOVE IT! Great job Nancy!!



 Renie's back this month with another incredible quilt!  Every time I look at this quilt I see another design within the blocks.  The bocks and their placement make this quilt fascinating




Susanne sent me a fun quilt to work with this month.  The quilting ladies' panels are always fun to see.  I'm sure we can all relate to the message they send.  Finishing Susanne's quilt off with a sewing quilting design makes this one just a little more fun!



Who does not love t-shirt quilts?  Sue did a great job with her placement on this one.  Adding the smaller row in the center is a great way to use those smaller designs.  Finished off with a simple quilting design completes this fun quilt.




That wraps up another great month of quilting. 
Hope you enjoyed the quilts.

October 2020

October!!  Working to catch up!!

Here's a great quilt from Judy in NC.  Love the way she's matched the solid fabrics with the Kaffe Fasset fabrics.  What I also love about this quilt is the way she used bits and pieces for one of her borders. All of the colors really stand out with the black fabric on either side.


New quilter Dion brought me a couple of quick projects that she had finished.  I had fun playing with the blue jean top and ended up putting different designs in some of the patches.  Then a basic meander on the rest of the quilt to just hold it in place. Her second quilt is a soft t-shirt quilt made from scraps.






Patty had a little fun with the next two quilts.  Each matching, almost, one has blue borders and the second one uses the color purple.  Patty did a great job on the piecing making my job an easy one!





This is one of my very, very favorite quilt patterns!!  What a great scrap buster this one can be!  This quit is from Elizabeth and is nothing short of fabulous!  LOVE IT!!




Sam is back again this month with another Christmas project.  How fun is this little quilt made with the Grinch fabric?  We decided to go with an ornament design for the quilting and it just finished the quilt perfectly.



My friend Dorothy!  Another great batch of quilts from the great state of Washington.  Each one of these little quilts is just better than the last.  I have so much fun working with Dorothy, she allow me to select the design of my choice so I really get a chance to try some great designs.  










Here's a great top using the Civil War fabrics.  Susanne has been quite busy turning out some pretty fabulous projects.  The quilting design is a modern leafy one, just perfect.




WOW! WOW! WOW!
I love this turtle quilt from Dianne!  Such a fun quilt and the colors for the turtles and ocean are perfect!  She did a great job with the piecing giving the turtles so much definition. Using a swimming turtle design for the quilting finished it off wonderfully! 





Southwest style and color.  The bold colors on Dianne's second quilt are indicative of the beautiful colors from the desert and the beautiful sunsets that can only be seen in the southwest. 
 



Here's one of mine!  Due to the covid rules and guidelines this year the hubs decided he'd take a year off from skiing, his winter love.  I picked up this quilt as a kit, priced just right to make it too irresistible to pass up.  The quilt was a great Christmas gift for him.  I had fun with the quilting, don't forget to click on the photo for up-close look at the quilting!  There are skiers on it!  On the lift, going down a hill combined with a few snowflakes making this just the most perfect quilting design!  I had fun making it but more fun quilting it!





That's it for another month!  Hope to be back very soon, 
still trying to catch up!

Thanks for checking on me,
