Totally Groovy QA
Finished 10/25/12

Tetris QA
Finished 9/14/12
This quilt was made during the Tetris QA with Melissa at Happy Quilting.  It finishes 60" x 80".  It was made with garage sale scraps.  It was quilted on my domestic sewing machine using the dogwood quilting pattern.  See more details here.

Pineapple Blossom Quilt from the Block Lotto
Finished 5/7/12

This quilt was made from the blocks that I won in May, 2011, in the Block Lotto.  It measures
82" x 92".  The back is pieced with a lot of different fabrics.  This is not my favorite back, but it works for this quilt.  It's perfect for our couch.  The Pineapple Blossom design is by Bonnie Hunter of Quiltville's blog.  Blocks are color controlled with each block having two yellow and two grey fabrics in each block.  This is my fist attempt at sashing.  Love the sashing and cornerstones!  The binding is very very scrappy.  No additional fabrics were purchased for this quilt.  Everything I added was from my stash.  Some of the pineapple blossoms are echo stitched.  The sashing has straight line quilting all around it.  This is the first quilt that I used my straight line attachment for my machine.

Here's the very pieced back.  I was still not sure if I like all these colors and pieces.  But it is really growing on me as I use it on the couch.  You can tell in this picture that the border is scrappy as well.

Crumb Along with Jo's Country Junction
Finished April 23, 2012
Yeah! Another UFO can be crossed off my list thanks to the Twelve UFO Challenge for 2012. This month really was a challenge for me because I wasn't really happy with the way the colors are looking. But I broke my blocks in half and made a baby quilt and some doll quilts. Here they are:

This quilt measures 42" x 54"
The crumb blocks were given to me from Kate North's blog:
She sent them to me a YEAR ago! Thanks, Kate!

Finished four doll quilts for the 2012 Get Your Mrs. Claus On. These are the other crumb blocks that I made that I didn't think that the colors matched those from Kate.

Here are the backs. I like the little Accuquilt GO! Baby die that helped me make these. It's in the "Die to Try" section on the Accuquilt page.

These little doll quilts will be shipped to Debbie later this year for charity.


Three Blind Mice Baby Quilt
Finished March 24, 2012

This quilt measures 48" x 51".
Fabric was on clearance at JoAnn's for $2/yd or less.
No needles were broken in FMQ.
The back is nice and flat, but the cheap fabric was crooked on the grain...)
I cut this quilt out while camping in July, 2011.  It would have just stayed in the bags, but
because of Judy at Patchwork Times and the 2012 UFO Challenge, it is done!
The pattern is from Sunflower Seeds Awesome QA with Jamie Mueller.

This quilt was donated 6/2/12 to Sarah at http://confessionsofafabricaddict.blogspot.com/2012/05/hands2help-show-off-your-quilts.html for the H2H Challenge.  It was for The  NOLA Project.

Finished March 6, 2012

This quilt measures 72" x 82".
My stippling is getting much, much better.
I still need to working on getting the back completely flat!
It is my first scrappy binding.
It is my first machine stitched (zigzag) binding -- I LOVE IT!
ZERO jean needles broken during FMQ -- Whohoo!

These blocks were won in the January 2012 block lotto.  The block is called Eclipse.  The color control theme was bright and light.  When I received each block I machine embroidered the first name and location of the block maker.  Six countries and eight different states are represented.

I am very proud that I purchased ZERO fabrics!  All materials needed were from my stash!!!

Bust Yo Scraps Baby Quilt
Finished February 26, 2012


Quilt size 41" x 56"
Great stippling.

This is my favorite pieced back so far.
It was completely made from scraps!
All half square triangles and squares cut with Accuquilt Baby GO! value die.

This quilt is special because it is a charity quilt for DSSN (Down Syndrome Support Network) of my county in Ohio.  Quilt raffle is on March 17, 2011.  Thanks to all that purchased tickets!  Good Luck!

X's and O's Baby Quilt
Finished January 20, 2012

Finished size 42" x 56".
I only broke ONE needle while FMQ!  I am now using jean needles for FMQ.

Nice, flat pieced back.  I'm very happy with the FMQ!

This quilt is a charity quilt for my local quilt guild.  It will go to a child at the Akron Children's Hospital.  Hopefully it will bring comfort.

Used polyester cone thread from JoAnn's ($2/cone) and jean needles.

Total finished quilts for 2012



Duo Quiltalong

 It measures a little 20.5" by 20.5".  Part of the purpose for this QA was to do hand stitching and FMQ.  I opted to not do the hand stitching because I don't think I'll ever want to do that.  BUT I did use the stitch on my machine and the clear thread on the top that made the machine stitching have the look of hand stitching.
It was hosted by the blogs:  Contended (Rachel) and Quilter In The Gap (Rhonda).

Diamond Chains QA with Tilda's Twisted Life

The back is a little puckered... grrr.   But it seemed to straighten out once we used it and washed it--whew.
This is a California King Quilt it measures
86" x 91"
I used FMQ on it with varigated Signature varigated thread -- YUCK!
It looks like my 4-year old scribbled on it with a pen.  Next time
I will know better to use a solid color thread.  But once I started in the middle I
felt committed to finish it with the thread I started.

I do LOVE the pieced back!

I used Leah Day's 365 FMQ Project and selected the all-over FMQ design called
Hearts and Swirls

Completed 11/18/11

Tilda's Twisted Life

Jungle Babies Ineractive Baby Quilt

Gotta love a link-a-do holder.
