Design Wall Monday 10.15.2018

Working on my QOV for the FB QOV Stars group. It's suppose to be secret but well, I can't decide of I should make the string match red or blue?

Stayed tuned for the final layout...

WIP Wednesday 8.1.2018

One of my Facebook forums (Quilts of Valor Stars) is hosting a block drive. Any star pattern that finishes at 12 inches (12.5 inches unfinished). I'm not sure of this star's name but it is my *go to* star pattern. I previously made a set with a red background.

This time-blue backgrounds. I've made 7 so I have 7 to go. I wanted to see what each background would look like. :) The forum admin asks for blocks in two's...easier placements in quilts.

This drive ends on August 31st and the target number is 1776 star blocks.

Design Wall Tuesday 7.31.2018


I saw Alycia's blog about one of her QOVers had passed away and she was putting out a call for flag blocks.

So I made a few to send off to Alycia.

I also saved a few out to make a quilt for our guild. PatR has put out a request for RWB quilts that measure 40 x 50 for her retirement center veterans. I wished I had used six flags instead of four...

On my design wall:

My finished coin quilt, all ready to donated to guild. The coins and sashings are from the guild stash...using up what we have!  lol

I quilted it with a new panto: Fern Gully. A shout out and thanks to Susan from the FB Quilt of Valor Stars group fro suggesting this panto to me. I really like the movement on it!

Design Wall Monday 7.2.2018

I'm working on a Comfort Quilt. At out June meeting, Heather shared her ideas for coin quilts. I snagged a group of 5 inch plaids, Heather cut and I began to sew them together. I didn't have enough to form vertical rows so I made horizontal rows instead. The beige print is also from the Comfort Quilts stash...

pattern details: horizontal Chinese coins - public domain.

Also, here is a tutorial from Moda Bakeshop

I was going to sew the outer border with the leftover coins a darker brown but, somehow, I forgot! Good thing, this is a little longer so I will need the extra for backing. lol

Whoop! Whoop! 6.1.2018


another week has passed. My days seem to fly by...

I dove into my stash of 6.5 inch cut novelty squares. Sometimes I have a lot of repeats of a pattern so I like to arrange them in a diagonal set. This time I focused on mainly boyish prints (but a few ice cream cones snuck in!). I chose grey as the backgrounds in an effort to use the stash.

pattern info: tilted squares using the method from Sharyn Craig

pants info: Square Spiral 

The front cover of Sharyn's book.
