Sunday Stash

I bought these in August at The Quilt Rack when I went to see Tews Falls with 2 of my siblings, our kids and our friends.  Hoping to get enough dreamy, pastel fabrics to make a nice soft looking quilt.

Sunday Stash

I have been participating in the Row by Row Experience.  So far I have visited 2 shops  Creative Sisters Quilt Studio, which is my local shop and Greenwood Quiltery which is a hop away in Guelph.   And so, while I went there to pick up a free pattern... I also have a few purchases to show you.  Well.  It might be more than a few. lol.  I basically went around tossing whatever peaked my fancy into my little wicker basket.  On the plus side, my frequent shopper card at Creative Sister was full, so I had about $25 off my purchase. :D See? Purchases justified.  I have no idea what any of the fabrics are but I will attempt to find out and update.  If anyone knows, any of the names/lines shout 'em out in the comments!  Now to the eye candy.

I am going with a friend to gather more Row By Row patterns.  If I can manage pictures, (boy does it take a while to get these just barely adequate photos!) I will post more fabric acquisitions (and maybe even projects) next week! See you then.

Happy Stashing.

2015 Quarter One Goals

Well, I didn't do well last quarter.  I finished nothing. Nada. Zip. Zilch. But this quarter will be different!  I will finish!  I am going to sew for at least 15-20 minutes a day. If I can do that I am sure to finish something.

In addition to my fourth quarter goals of 2014, I am adding:

This baby quilt for my nephew and his girlfriend who just had their first gorgeous daughter, Scarlet.  It needs to be basted, quilted and bound. I think simple diagonal stitching through the center of the squares will do it.

So, I have four goals to reach for this quarter.  Linking up to:

Quarter Four!

Alrighty, then.  I think I need a new plan of action.  And that will be...more focus.  Less options.  For the Fourth Quarter of the Finish Along 2014 I have 3 goals:

The Odd Goose Out (yes, I know it's been on the list and the AYOLF more than once!).

The SISTER gift quilt

And my Busy Bees quilting bee quilt.  I was Queen bee for month 1 in July.  Although I need to make  quite a few more blocks before it is a reasonable lap size.  I need to find a name for this one too! Any suggestions?  You ladies were so helpful with my last plea for names.

The Odd Goose Out

Well, unfortunately I did not finish my "A Lovely Year of Finishes" July goal, which was to finish The Odd Goose Out quilt.  I chose to do more than just straight line quilting and so it is taking me longer than expected.  Thus, my July goal is now my August goal.

2014 Finish Along Quarter 3 - List

Sooo...maybe this quarter I can finish this post in time to make the link party at The Littlest Thistle!  Especially since I am starting it at the beginning of June. ;) I am hoping to update some of the photos, although not much has changed with my list - except that it's gotten bigger!  And I finished my Butter Churn in Purple quilt.  Which I'm not even sure was on the last list. lol.

This Apple Cider quilt needs a backing, 
basting, quilting and binding!  It's a queen.

This baby quilt I want to border in more black but
offset the patchwork so it's more in a corner.

 Summer Sampler Quilt Along quilt 
needs six more blocks. And I might re-do the star
block on the bottom right.

I got tired of machine blanket stitching all these triangles on this baby quilt. That is all that has to be done before basting, quilting and binding.

 This quilt was supposed to be a mini quilt made with just one block (the red border was the outside of said block).  But I fell in love and couldn't stop making them. Again, just needs basting, quilting and binding.  I'm calling it Square Foot Garden because it reminds me of photos of square foot gardens which are 4x4 foot gardens where each square foot of garden is planted with a type of vegetable. Check it out here and here and you'll see what I mean.

Random hourglass quilt I started when I bought a Creative Grids specialty ruler.  
I will have to find the ruler before I can finish this one...

My early attempt at a triple Irish Chain quilt.
I think it was a very ambitious scrappy project that ended when I realized I did not have enough greens. 
My stash has grown since then...but I think it will either turn into a table runner or small quilt

The blocks for my Sweet Baby Pinks quilt  version of the Sweet Baby Blues quilt still need to be made.  
2 down, 33 more to go...

This one needs to be quilted and bound. 
Need a backing fabric first. This one is my July ALYOF goal.

The Swisslandia quilt top needs to be pieced, quilted, bound.
The plan is to have the one red swiss cross and the rest black.

And last but highest priority is this one. 
The long overdue birthday quilt for my sister.  
I only have 2 blocks done.

Can you tell what my favourite part of quilting is yet?  Haha.

Happy quilting!

New Block of the Month

Well, this BOM isn't new - it started in January, but it is new to me.  Every month Aurifil does an awesome interview with a designer and that designer designs a block for the BOM.  I was reading Camille Roskelly's blog yesterday and she is the July Designer of the Month.  There was a picture of the block she designed and I fell in love.  After proceeding through to the Aurifil blog I looked up all the January to June blocks as well.  I've made three of them already! I was up until midnight. haha.  And yes I realize these have nothing to do with my July ALOYF goal but I have 24 days of the month left!

Meet July, June and March (in that order).

I kept to the same colour story that the designers have because I love it and I've always wanted to make a quilt that is primarily blues and reds.  I love the bits of yellow too (it's my third fave colour).

Have you ever fallen in love with a block?  If you have let me know which one it was in the comments!

Happy Quilting!
