A Starlett is Born!p

This beauty has been a WIP (work in progress) for over a year too.

It’s a commission for a friend who kept saying, “no rush”, so I did no such thing!

I took so long, she actually forgot what the pattern she chose looked like!

The pattern is called Starlett by Me and My Sister Designs.

I added the sashing so that it would drape on a queen size bed.

Isn’t she lovely?!

She was quilted by my super talented friend, @debclem6 (IG). Thanks Deb!

Until next time, happy quilting!

A “Wild Hair”

I promised myself I wouldn’t start another project, besides the QA Row by Row Round-Robin we’re starting in November, until I finish four other UFOs in my closet.

BUT…

I just had to test out my new AccuCut GrandMARK2, which is identical to the accuquilt Studio2

 on a quick little project…

and so, this 12″ sq.  Dutchman’s Puzzle was born.

And then I got a “wild hair”,  and decided to practice FMQ.

Intending to do mostly Pebbling, this is what I accomplished.

It’s more wobble and cobble, but it is fabulous to me!

Thanks for stopping by.

Bound and Finished

I am excited to share several finishes w/you today!

This first one is a quilt I started for my sister’s office at her new job. A job she celebrated her 3yr anniversary at this past May! Better late than never right?The pattern is Summer Star Mini by Jera at Quilting in the Rain. I quilted it using a pantograph called Malachite by Urban Elementz while I was visiting Katy.

Next up is an Attic Windows quilt I started last October.  I finished the top right away, but it hung stuck in flimsy status until just recently.  

It was quilted by a friend, and up and coming longarm quilter here in the West Valley.

And this quilt was neither pieced nor quilted by me.  However, it is my first original pattern called Straits and Arrows. It was featured in Stash Builder Box in January.  My pattern is available in my Craftsy Pattern Shop.  

It was pieced by my good friend Sue, who gave me the flimsy.  I had it quilted by the same friend who quilted Attic Windows.

And last but not least, is a crazy quilt I acquired a few years ago.  I bought a serger from a coworker whose Aunt had recently passed and they threw in all kinds of extras. This was an extra.

Even though it was crazily pieced w/all kinds of funky polyester fabric, I fell in love w/it! It measures 50″ x 100″.

Katy took it home w/her the last time she left AZ and quilted it for me. Thank you, Katy! I picked it up when I visited her in MI.

I LOVE the backing she chose!  It is officially my car quilt for trips to the park and such.

That’s all folks! Thanks for visiting!

Until next time, Happy Quilting and God Bless.
