Two More Quilts to Add to My Collection!

The sun was shining enough today to take pictures of two more finishes.  They were actually finished earlier in the week.

Stash Buster (6" Jelly Roll purchased a few years ago--don't know what the line was)

"Hat Trick" using "Butterscotch and Roses"
I got a couple of flimsy finished today as well but they have to be quilted!  I hope that you had a great week end!

Sewing Frenzy??

You know me well enough that even if I don't post for a while, I am still sewing and sewing and sewing!  I have a quilt on the quilter that may take some time to finish because I am doing some special quilting.

I have also been working on reducing my stash.

"On The Boardwalk" kit purchased last year.  The fabric is "Lucy's Crab Shack"

"Sparkle" by Fig Tree using "Aviary" by Moda.  

"Tossed Triangles using "Christmas Elegance"
I also sewed binding on several little quilts and finally, cleaned up some of my mess stash in my sewing room.  Two people can now be in the room at the same time.  It is raining outside sew it's back to cutting fabric for another stash buster!

Week End Finishes

I finished up three little quilts this week end.  One was a Schnibbles called "Hat Trick",   Oops!  The pattern is not hat trick!  I can't find the pattern to know it's real name!   Found it!  The name is "Houseboat".  I bought a kit a few years ago from the Fat Quarter Shop.  The fabric is Moda's "Looking Back".  I don't know the name of the second quilt.  Found it!  It is called "Sweet and Sassy" and is a tutorial over at "Cluck Cluck Sew".  I just made a bunch of HST from a charm pack from my stash--"Sugar Pop".  And, I finished up my Schnibbles for April, which is "Hat Trick".  BUT, you can't see it until the parade!!


Sweet and Sassy

Chippewa Finished!

If you recall, I started this quilt last October at a quilt retreat.  Well, I finally finished up the binding Monday night and am here to show off!

Overview of Chippewa

I quilted the border with cross hatching, the reds with a big feather flower and the nine patches with a swirly feather.

All of the white triangles were quilted with strings of pebbles.

Simply Charming

I finished my "Simply Charming" quilt on Sunday afternoon, but couldn't post it until today.  I made "Teresa's Treasure" found on page 10.  I think that it is darling, one of my favorites so far!
