I’ve finished up the first twelve blocks for my Granny’s Garden quilt. I love everything Lori Holt designs, so of course I had to make this one. I still have to appliqué the circles onto the background squares, but I’m going to do all of that right at the end, after all the circles are… Continue reading In Progress – Granny’s Garden – Blocks 1-12
I just realized that I never blogged about my Bee Happy quilt at the State Fair of Virginia. Shame on me for not bragging about my win! 😀 I entered in the machine appliqué category and Bee Happy won the blue ribbon! I was very excited to see that ribbon on my quilt.
Yay! My Bee Happy Quilt is finished! As always, beautifully quilted by Robin at Ormond Beach Quilts. I asked her to custom quilt this one and she did a gorgeous job!
So, I didn’t mean to add another project to the dozen or so that I have in progress right now, but when I saw the new Spelling Bee book from Lori Holt, I couldn’t help myself. I’m using scraps from my Bee Happy Quilt and I bought a fat quarter bundle of Bee Basics to… Continue reading In Progress – Spelling Bee Quilt

I’ve been cranking these blocks out for sure! I generally don’t do “scrappy” very well, I’m kind of picking the fabrics at random from the two fat quarter bundles of Blueberry Park fabric that I’m using. I think they’re all coming out great! 🙂 Block #8 – Starboard: Block #9 – Spin the Bottle: Block… Continue reading In Progress – Quilt Block Cookbook QAL

This quilt top is in the home stretch now. I’ve added a small border around the edge and I’m debating about not adding the flags like I was planning. I made a mistake when I was doing the math and ended up cutting the sashing strips for the flags too small. I think I may… Continue reading In Progress – Home Sweet Home Quilt
