Batik circle wall hanging

Lately I've been playing with the splendid sampler blocks, but did put this small wall hanging (22" square) together yesterday.  Bought the curve master foot and templates at a quilt show in Nashville years ago and finally got around to playing!

Still have to build quilt and bind it.  And of course hang it up!

Valentine's Day finish!

Wanted a quilt ladder to store my quilts on while enjoying them at the same time.  Hubs and I were looking at plans for quilt ladders and ended up doing our own.  Looks like it could use one more rung towards the bottom, but once quilts are on it I think it will be fine!  Don't want them dragging on the floor.

Vacation time rework!

Well, the vacation time quilt along was fun, but what I created was an eyesore!  That being said, it was really just a matter of lots of busy fabric without any neutrals/plain fabrics to balance.  So... Ripped it apart, got a lovely sashing fabric (Rock Candy in charcoal by Mark Hordyszynski for Blank Quilting 2007) and reworked it to separate the blocks.  There was some discussion regarding the placement of individual blocks, but I ended up leaving it.  The picture below is before I added a 2.5" border in the same fabric.  Measurement came out to 64" square.  Will be a nice generous quilt and look great on my new quilt ladder that Donnie made me!

Now I have to figure out what to use for a backing!

Valentine wall hanging.

Next up will be spring!  Perhaps a basket of posies?!

Homespun quilt

So I gave Mel and Dave a quilt for the rec room.  This top was actually made a number of years ago and I thought I had given them one of these already.  I had made three tops of the same fabric in different patterns.  When I waked Mel she said they didn't have one, but tonite Dave said they had one similar.  No worries, it will be his and hers!    Glad they like it!

Minion quilt has been gifted!

And a Pokemon pillowcase!
