Design Wall Monday 11.24.2014

Well, I needed a quick quilt so Mock Trip Around the World (by Quilting Assistant) to the rescue!

I went into my MTATW bin and pulled out 11 completed blue/gray/black blocks. I also had enough of the three fabrics to complete the quilt. Since this is for a Milwaukee Admirals' hockey friend, I decided to swap out the middle blocks with a t*shirt that I had on inventory. The friend is taller so I added a border with hockey motifs.  :)

Now all is left is odds and ends from previous quilts. Perhaps they will go into the orphan bins?!

Whoop! Whoop! 11.22.2014

Whoop! Whoop!

I finished up my November goal!

A blue and green scrap quilt. Blocks made with the Mile-a-Minute technique and my blue/green scrap boxes STILL DO NOT CLOSE! ...sigh….

I quilted it with the Bubbles panto, one source here.

I dyed the backing using bleached muslin and Tulip dyes.

It was an ice dye but there is a lot of white…I'm thinking it was too cold in my house to get full saturation of the dye.

Wintery WIP 11.19.2014

Like many others in the continental US, winter has arrived here at Bell Creek Quilts. We are on the *wrong* side of the lake so our *lake effect* snow is limited this time around!

I finally got my thread out and am sewing the binding back for my ALYOF… here is my goal.

Veteran's Day 11.11.2014















I have been sewing up some loose ends for Veteran's Day this year.

I added the labels to the two QOV's I have here and I also made the two pillowcases/ presentation cases that need to accompany the quilts.  I need to write the letters to the Vets receiving the quilts than I can send them off to Alycia. I heard she needs like 65 quilts for presentations this November - which will deplete her supply of QOV's.

So now is the time for mine to head over to her 'holding station' before they find their forever homes!
