Moving Right Along

In February I posted my Quilty Project Lineup. Here it is in a nutshell along w/my progress.

  1. Barter Project Finished!
  2. Baby Girl Quilt Finished!
  3. Charity Quilt Finished!
  4. Scrappy Trips It’s a Flimsy!
  5. Baby Boy Quilt Finished!
  6. Quilt Meadowland
  7. Piece Patriotic A Tribute to Yoda

First things first, Scrappy Trips. I’ve actually started calling it my Everything Goes Scrappy Trips. Here are pics of 4 of the quadrants.


I didn’t stop there though. I have a king size bed and I want my quilt wider than longer (more drop on sides, because I don’t ever make my bed where the pillows are covered, I just throw the pillows on top). The blocks are 12″ but 8 x 8 (96″ square) wouldn’t work, so I jumped up to 10 x 8 (120″ x 96″). But that was a bit, A LOT overzealous of me because it made the sides WAY too long!

I removed a row of blocks off the longer side and now it’s 9 x 8 (108″ x 96′) and I like it much better. I’m not sure when I will quilt it but I’m ecstatic the top is done!

And then I finished baby boy’s quilt. He’s due in July so I am way ahead of schedule on this project. I wanted it to be a surprise but I inadvertently sent this pic to my niece (instead of my sis) so she already knows what it looks like. But oh well, she loves it. It’s going to look even better after I wash it!

I guess that means I have to start quilting Meadowland and then work up the nerve to quilt my behemoth, Everything Goes Scrappy Trips! But first I think I might make a couple more scrappy trips. Since I started quilting in 2011 I can’t ever remember wanting to immediately make another of the quilt I just finished. But I immensely enjoyed making scrappy trips!

Thanks for stopping by. I’m sure you all are keeping busy too. Stay well, happy stitchin’, and God bless.

Is it too soon to say this year is flying by? Because it is! And I’m keeping up w/it, making steady progress on my Quilty Project Lineup!

First things first, the barter. I love the barter system!

I got this stunning new wreath…

in exchange for these 2 pillow shams and sweetheart pillow. It goes so well w/the other room decor.

I finished baby girl’s quilt. She should be making her debut any day now.

This Quilts Beyond Borders charity quilt has been sent off and my name has been put in the hat for a monthly drawing.

Even though my great niece’s b-day isn’t until the end of April, I couldn’t wait any longer to send this to her. Look at her smile!

Oh! AND baby boy’s quilt is already a flimsy! I really enjoyed working w/Tumblers. They go together so quickly!

Scrappy Trips progress isn’t looking too shabby either. I made 32 more strip sets.

AND…I turned 2 orphan blocks into placemats and made block #4 of the Build-A-Quilt by Quilting Is My Therapy.

I’ve been very productive!

Thanks for stopping by. Until next time. Stay healthy, Happy Stitchin’, and God Bless!

Quilty Project Lineup

I am in total “maker” mode. I plan to make a lot of quilts this year. And I plan to make them one at a time, meaning, I’ll complete one before I start another, with the exception of my Scrappy Trips. I started Scrappy Trips in January but I have to put it aside to make a few more things.

I’m currently working on a barter project. I’m making a pair of quilted pillow shams and a set of pillowcases in exchange for an everyday felt flower wreath. My friend Lauren, aka Feltastic Creations (IG @feltasticcreations) makes amazing flowers out of felt and creates these stunning wreaths with them. Here are the two holiday wreaths I purchased from her last year.

Next up is a baby girl quilt for my niece who is due March 20th. My goal is for baby girl to have her quilt by her birthday. These are the fabrics I’ve chosen as of right now.

I’ve never made a Tumbler Quilt so I plan to use my 6″ AccuQuilt tumbler die from this set of Bullseye dies.

Right after that I’m going to quilt and finish this challenge quilt.

Me and a couple of friends who went to Houston Quilt Festival Houston are doing a fat quarter challenge for Quilts Beyond Borders sponsored by the Fat Quarter Shop. We added some of our own rules to the challenge, like we can only use 3 other fabrics along w/the supplied fat quarter and it has to be completed by April 25, 2020.

Then I’m back to working on my Scrappy Trips. Which I plan to make king size and eventually quilt on my domestic. Pray for me.

I’m hoping to finish it by end of May so that I can get on to the next quilt in my lineup which is a baby boy quilt for another niece who is due on July 10. Again I’d like for baby boy to have his quilt by his birthday. Here are the fabrics I pulled for his quilt. At this moment I’m thinking of a Tumbler Quilt for him too.

After baby boy’s quilt, I’d like to finally quilt Meadowland that I pieced last summer.

A new, Midwest, in real life friend and sister in Christ, Madonna (@sunnybunnyquilts on IG) has inspired me to start quilting my own quilts again which aligns well w/my plan to pay off some debt by year’s end. Thank you Madonna! This is her very, very, extra very, lovely make that really just got the inspiration ignited! Look at that tantalizing texture!

And last but not least in my quilty project lineup, is a FREE patriotic number called A Tribute To Yoda. There are 15 layout variations at the end of this pattern, but my fave is this one.

I purchased these reds, whites, and blues last year to make this quilt.

That’s my lineup so far. What do you think? Pretty ambitious huh? Say another prayer for me and stay tuned for my progress.

Thanks for stopping by. Until next time, God Bless and Happy Stitchin’!
