Whoop! Whoop! 2.25.2017

Donation Quilt Update:

Quilt A
I finished this quilt which was a 2 yard cut of fabric that I checked out of the charity sewing bin. I went one of my standard donation quilt designs--the checkerboard quilt.

pattern: my own

panto design: Yodel













My guild was also planning on donating wheelchair quilts to the local nursing care center. We only had two on inventory so I knew I had two smaller star quilts--so I donated those.

Quilt B

pattern credit: wonky stars and lasagna/brick-Bonnie Hunter

Quilt C

pattern credit: unknown source

WIP Wednesday

At my last guild meeting, I checked out a bag of tumblers from our charity sewing bin. A tumbler quilt has been on my bucket list and this was a great opportunity to sew one up.

I chose the fabrics that were most masculine as we always seem to run low on the more man-ly quilts. I'm not sure when I'll quit it up but here it is.  :)

pattern credit: tumbler quilt using the larger Accu-cut tumbler die

size: 13 rows of 12, approximately
53 x 79 before quilting

Whoop! Whoop! 2.10.2017

My first finish of 2017!

This is a peg type quilt featuring hockey fabric. This is a donation to the Milwaukee Area Hockey Helpers Youth Foundation. They are hosting a Casino Night in a few weeks and my friend (the organizer!) asked if I would donate a quilt.








The Hockey Helpers Youth Foundation provides hockey gear for younger skaters who otherwise would not be able to afford the hockey gear--it can get expensive fast!!

pattern: none available-I simply experimented with a picture from the web.

If this is your design-please leave a comment so I can 'give credit where credit is due'

















panto info: Square Diagonal (here is one place to purchase it)

The Last Three Months of 2016

September 2016

Friends were married and I created a Christmas Tree Skirt as a gift.

















I used the Phillips Arts ruler and green camouflage fabric as the feature.

They love everything camouflage! and they loved the tree skirt.

















Here is the strip set that I cut the pieces from.

















Here is the complete quilt.

















Here is the back~with mittens.

I also gave a Christmas ornament to start their married collection.

This is one of my favorite gifts to give!

October 2016

I went into my tub of Halloween novelties and made this Halloween Peg quilt for me.

No pattern was followed as I found a picture on the web as my inspiration~and I failed to credit where it was from.  :(  

bad blogger.






If this is your design...comment and I'll give you the credit where credit is due!




November 2016

I went into the tub of Hockey novelties and yes, you guesses it!

I made a Hockey pegs quilt. I donated this one to the Arrowhead Girls Hockey Turkey Tourney raffle. The person that won this quilt placed the wrong end of their ticket in the bin and failed to collect it. A second ticket was drawn and the quilt was won my the girls' goalie coach! I was so happy that it stayed in the hockey family! I later heard the the Coach doesn't accept any monies for his work with the girls which made his win doubly nice.

Here is the back. I had purchased a t-shirt from the previous year's tournament and used that as the label.













December 2016

My night guild sponsored a Christmas family and were looking for quilts to give.

I quilted up the 4 patch poise quilt and donated it.

I also quilted up my rwb tube quilt and donated it. (still trying to locate a picture - even if not quilted)

2016 ~ The Year That Wasn't!

Boy...Have I been MIA or what?!

Already two weeks into 2017 and no blogging.    In the coming days, I am going to try and update the end of 2016 as well as post current projects.

I am amazed at how easy it was to stop blogging...hopefully, I'll be able to get into the blogging routine again as I miss my online journal and *seeing* what my blogging friends are creating. Until then...

(and a no picture post!)
