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!

Goal Update

Lately I’ve been obsessed w/all the Christmas/Holiday themed items I’m planning to make next year! Yep! AND I’m going to start in July! This girl’s got plans!

I’ve been a Pinterest pinning fool! My sis has to be sick of hearing about/seeing all the things I’m obsessed with, which is mostly snowmen…and stockings!

Back to now…I have one more goal UFO to “finish” before I start other new projects.

I was shooting for year end but my Sparkle Punch Christmas quilt is still in the closet. I’ll be pulling it out this weekend. “It” ain’t even an “It” yet, just a bunch of squares really.

Here’s an old progress pic before I took it off the design wall.

My new goal is for it to be a completed quilt top by end of January. It’s going to be fabulous!

Thanks for stopping by.

Not that we are competent in ourselves to claim anything for ourselves, but our competence comes from God. – 2 Corinthians‬ ‭3:5‬ ‭NIV‬‬

Count ‘Em One, Two, Three and A Freebie.

I set a goal for myself to finish 4 UFOs by the end of this year.

I’m proud to say that 3 of the 4 are flimsies. This means the tops are done and they are ready for quilting! With this being said, only one of them will be “done and done” by year’s end, and I am totally okay with that.

Scrappy Webs is smaller than I originally intended, but between the process of making these blocks and the waste involved, I got to the point where I could not…would not, make one more block.

Arkansas/Iowa Traveler is one I started just about 3 years ago.  I determined to finish it this year when preparing for my 2nd trip to Iowa to visit Greta. She gifted me all of the precut diamonds after my first visit in 2014.

Through Thick and Thin is the biggest quilt I’ve made to date. It’s king size for my very own bed. It’s a scrappy log cabin constructed w/2.5″ and 1.25″ logs, hence the name, Through Thick and Thin.  I started this a couple of years ago. I chose an offset barn-raising layout and added the sashing on a whim and I LOVE how it turned out! This will be the first one I quilt. So excited to get it on my bed!

And now for that freebie.

Straits and Arrows is my first original pattern.

I created it on paper and then somehow, God only knows, I was able to create it in EQ5!  I don’t think I could do it again if you paid me!

But I did it, and it was featured in the Jan 2017 Stash Builder Box.

I just recently added it to my Craftsy Pattern Store and guess what? It’s free for a limited time!

So if it tickles your fancy, click on this link to download your free copy today. And don’t forget to tell all your friends!

As always, I thank you for visiting!
