Quilting Bee: Block 9

Melissa asked us to make a block out of the blue and cream fabrics she sent. She kindly pre-cut all the fabrics, so the block was super easy and fast to make. I like how it turned out!

Quilting Bee: Block 8

This was my first foray into making a log cabin block. Christina sent all the fabrics. I like how it turned out. I was a bit annoying to make bwcause the logcabin block needs to be ironed after every stitch, and then trimmed, so there was a lot of movement between my sewing machine, my iron and my cutting board, but I can see how if you are making a bunch of those, they are pretty quick to put together if you chain-piece.

Quilting Bee: Block 7

For this block, Sadie sent us rainbow stripy fabric and assigned us each a color of the rainbow. From those we were supposed to make any pinwheel block measuring 10.5x10.5. I decided to make one of the blocks I made previously for the pinwheel sampler.

Any yellow just happens to be my favorite color! What a great excuse to get some more yellow fabrics for my stash!

Fabric Love

Look at some of those cute lovely lines coming up from Moda! Ok how do I justify buying more fabric???

This would be great for a baby girl quilt:

I have seen lots of great quilts made with this line. The large prints make them stand out:

I love this color scheme. Purple, pink, yellow, and turquise! Love!

Same designer as the curio line. This color scheme is more baby-quilt friendly:

Quilt blocks!!! Quilt out of quilt blocks out of "Quilt Blocks"! Yes please!

Sweetwater is becoming one of my favorite designers!

This line has been out for a bit. I like it, I just have no idea what to make with it..

Orange! I love all the oranges in here! Not sure about black/orange combo though. Looks a bit too much like Halloween to me.

Would make such a cute summer house quilt. Now I just need a summer house...

Owels! I think I may need to acquire these fabrics! This would make an adorable baby boy quilt!

Same designer as Summer House. Very pretty!

I always seem to love Me & My Sister Designs fabrics. Twirl does not dissapoint, it even has some yellow in it!

And how cute is this line! And the designer is Berenstain Bears!!!

I think this is my new favorite Christmas line! It will be available in June, just in time to make some Christmas quilts for the kiddos!

 I love pretty much anything by Kate Spain and this new Christmas line is no exception!

This collection would be worth it just for that print in lower left hand corner!

I think I will need to see how the individual fabrics look before deciding on this one. I do love the yellow/red/grey color combo.

I think there is going to be a BOM club at Fat Quarter Shop featuring this collection:

Kate Spain!!!

A Little Red Ridinghood line! I love all the prints!

I think this collection will be the focus of another BOM at Fatquarter Shop!

Goals for 2012

I want to write these down, so that I can refer back to them and see how many I have accomplished so far:

1. Keep up with the quilting bee (I was good about this in 2011, but got a bit behind right before having a baby)

2. Complete 12 quilt tops including: quilts for A&A  (2), Max's Quilt, Living Room Quilt, and Summer Sampler.

2a. Quilt 8 quilts (some of the ones above need to be long-arm quilted, no way my sewing machine can handle them!)

3. Make some headway in making our bed quilt: put all the blocks together

4. Learn how to make blocks using templates and using paper piecing

5. Take one quilting class

6. Learn free-motion quilting.

Quilting Bee: Block 6

Amber asked us to make a house. The dimensions were up to us, as was the design. I had a lot of fun with this block. It is not like anything else I ever made, and I have to say, I am proud of how it turned out.

Finished in 2011

Project 1: Baby Play Quilt

This is the first quilt I ever completed and I am really proud of it. I made it for Katya to use as a playmat when she plays on the floor. I started making it before we knew she was a girl, so the quilt is gender neutral.

Project 2: Squares Baby Quilt

This was the first quilt for which I used diagonal quilting. It was made using 1 layer cake and it was pretty easy to put together. I really like how it turned out.

Project 3: French Quilt

This was the first quilt for which I made a pieced backing.

Project 4: Synchronized Squares Quilt

Top Completed: Pinwheel Sampler

Quilting Bee Blocks

4 Finished Quilts
1 Finished Quilt Top
5 Quilting Bee Blocks (I am a bit behind on this...)
