My Love Note Quilt

img_2343

I just finished hanging this new quilt I made for Valentine’s Day. I need to finish hand quilting the empty spaces between the envelopes but I wanted to get it up so that I could enjoy it this week. The pattern comes from the Missouri Star Quilt Co and their quick video tutorials on You Tube.

Round Robin: Round 7

This was a fun 9 months of working on fellow quilters quilts. I am however ready to be done. I was glad of the opportunity to get to know several of my ladies in a deeper way through out the time. Here is the last of the quilts before I get mine back.

Here is the quilt as I received it.

Here is the starting center.

Here is the box of fabric that was sent along to everyone.

I added the plain green as a stopping border and to tie the green back into the quilt. I like how it finished.

My Silent Auction Quilt

I won this unfinished 1930’s fabric small quilt top at the PAQA quilt show in April. I was thrilled with the pattern, Grandmother’s Garden, it’s one of my favorites.  There was a hole in it and it is stained in a couple places but I didn’t care. I cut it down slightly to go on my one wall and used the cut off parts to patch the hole. I then sandwiched it and hand quilted it over the last month. Here is the final piece. I also made coaster with the scraps.

Below are the before pictures:

I replaces a pink hexagon with a different fabric but it blends in nicely, I think.

IMG_1656

I loved it so much I immediately put it on the wall. You can see the hole here in the pink flower.

This picture is kind of scary for me. It took a lot for me to cut it up and square it. If I’d had more time it would have been nice to finish it as is.

IMG_1677

Last pictures is of the sandwiching process and being ready to quilt. I didn’t frame it or anything. I just pinned it and quilted it in my lap.

My Finished Quilts

IMG_1784

This quilt I started at the last summer quilting retreat in 2015. I finally quilted and bound the edge. I believe the pattern is called Summer in the Park.

IMG_1779

I’ve posted this before but it is completely finished now. (and a personal favorite)

IMG_1770

I also posted this one and same thing; it is quilted and bound and ready for sale.

The August retreat will be upon me soon. I have to figure out what I want to start and get fabrics together to enjoy my 3 days with the 50+ ladies. Should be fun.
