Crossroads Finish

This has been finished for a while, but I only got the pictures today. We have had a lot of dreary days and I have been traveling. Not too much time has been spent in the sewing room lately.
Here are pics of the Crossroads Quilt Along.

I used a pantograph instead of custom quilting. I really love the house blocks. This will probably be my last finish of 2016.

Thanks for stopping by.

Wall Flower Quilt

This is the flimsy on my design wall. This is the quilt that Little Missy and I worked on when she was in KY. So much fun.
I used the Azalea pantograph to quilt this quilt. Little Missy loves it. It is on her bed in Michigan.

Thanks for stopping by.

Mini Quilts

I completed several mini quilts for my sewing room walls. I loaded them on the long arm in space that was available next to a larger quilt.
Cherry Pie from Fig Tree Quilts

Mini Blossom from Fig Tree Quilts (two color version)

Mini Twirl from Fig Tree Quilts
I look forward to getting these hung. DH isn't in the mood.

Thanks for stopping by.

Christmas Quilts

I completed three Christmas quilts for the grands. Such fun. All have been delivered and are being enjoyed. I bought kits from AQS.

Each quilt has different quilting in each section.

This is the view from the back of one of the three. This was a pantograph.

Here they are on beds in NYC. No picture from Michigan yet.

Three happy grand kids. Three more finishes for 2016.

Thanks for stopping by.

Wallflower Quilt

Little Missy came from Michigan to Kentucky to visit with Grandma and Grandpa.  I chose a project that we could do together. I chose the Wallflower quilt from Missouri Star Quilt Company found here. So cute.

Little Missy traced the flower petals. We both put product on the back of the pieces (Crafted Applique technique).

She is going into first grade, as she will be happy to tell anyone who asks.

She loved arranging the blocks on the design wall. We couldn't get it finished while she was here. I finished the blocks and got the flimsy pieced.

I am now ready to get this loaded onto Lucey.  Such fun.

Now, here is the next thing. She wants a matching quilt for her American Girl doll. Oy. I don't want to make teeny tiny blocks. Any ideas? Anyone? Anyone?

Thanks for stopping by.

Sherbet and Creams

Here is my Sherbet and Creams flimsy. I added a small border before the outer border.

I have taken several liberties with this one. First, I reduced the size of the center circles and the corner stones. Then I added an inner border. Just because. I liked it better.

This has been added to my pile of flimsies.

Thanks for stopping by.

Crossroads Quilt Along

I completed the 18 connecting blocks for the Crossroads Quilt Along. Phew. I seemed to take forever. I cut the pieces on Saturday. It took most of Sunday to sew the components and complete the blocks.

72 4-patches ready to go.

18 Connecting Blocks

Close up of one block. Intentionally scrappy.
Very cute.
