Granny Squares

"Quilt Top #2" is now a completed quilt, which I named "Granny Squares". I quilted it with a simple diagonal grid, using Sew Fine thread. A large piece of Thimbleberries fabric that was in my stash became the backing. It wasn't the nicest colour and print, so it was good to "get rid" of it. :) Lots of fabric was left when my quilt shop closed several years ago, I've been trying to use up the stock ever since.

Getting Ready For The Quilting Retreat

I pin basted Quilt Top #20 to get it ready for quilting at our next retreat. I have no idea what quilting design to use, I've looked through all my books for ideas. Hopefully, inspiration will strike soon!

Slower Than Molasses

I've been working on "Quilt Top #2", I posted a picture of it on January 14, 2016. The top was made a few years before that. For the past few weeks, I've been quilting a bit at a time, it'll eventually get finished.

Giveaway Quilt By Linda H.

Linda H just completed this quilt to give to a friend, she said the Hourglass blocks went together quickly. I'm sure the recipient will love it! I really like the bright colours.

Quilt Top #20

When Linda H and Audrey were here in June, we started working on these blocks. I've got my quilt top assembled, Audrey is still working on hers and Linda has put her blocks away for now. I got the idea from a picture of a quilt that I saw somewhere on the internet, I don't know who to give credit for the design. What kind of quilting should I do on this one? I'll have to figure it out before our next quilting retreat at the end of September.

Pansy Garden By Linda H.

Linda H made this quilt, "Pansy Garden" in 2016 but the binding wasn't completed until this year. Linda said that she had one metre of the red pansy fabric and every bit of it was used in the centre of each Anvil block.

Throwback Thursday; Woodland Clover

This quilt was at the cabin for a few years, I brought it home this summer to trade it with a different one. The pattern is "Woodland Clover" from the book "More Nickel Quilts" by Pat Speth. I made the quilt in 2006. It's interesting to see the difference in my quilting from then to now, I used lots of stippling and meandering back then, I'm a little more adventurous now. I'll have to fold the quilt a different way next time, I see it has a fold line in the middle.
