Bloggers Quilt Festival Entry #2

Here is my second entry into Amy’s Creative Side’s spring Blogger’s Quilt Festival.  I chose Leftovers IV for the original design category. I had tons of left over strips and tiny rectangles after making my Blue Odyssey quilt. So far I have made 4 twin quilts from the leftovers and there are probably enough scraps to make 1 or 2 more.  To read more about this quilt and see more pictures please click here.

Blogger’s Quilt Festival

I thought I would try something new. Twice a year Amy’s Creative Side hosts a Blogger’s Quilt festival. There are numerous categories and it is open to quilters of all experience levels. You are allowed to enter two quilts and each much be in it’s own blog post.  Here is my first entry:


I t is a king size quilt that I made for my Niece’s wedding present.  I has 24 unique house blocks (several are reproductions of homes that have sentimental meaning to her) and 25 plain blocks with unique free motion quilting designs.  You can read more about this quilt and see more pictures here.

I managed to get a little more work done on my Little Black Dress-2 quilt. I sliced the rows apart and added some wide sashing between each row.  I still need to add more to it to make it finish at a decent lap size.


I also completed my block-of-the-month for May.

May Goal ALYoF


This is my May goal for A Lovely Year of Finishes. It’s a lap quilt I am making out of Little Black Dress 2. I need to finish the piecing, quilt and bind.

ALYoF April and FAL

With only hours to spare I just put the last hand stitches into my binding to officially finish my April goal and my first FAL for the 2nd quarter. Yippee!!!  It is a lap quilt that I made as a surprise for someone special.

Lately I haven’t been quilting as much and I’ve been really bad at posting updates. A new puppy and life is taking up much of my time. I hope that things will begin to settle down a bit and give me more relaxing/down time for quilting.

I have completed the March and April blocks for the 2015 QuiltEssential Block-of-the-Month program.



I’ve also made a little progress on my “Little Black Dress” lap quilt. I just have to figure out how I want to finish it.


On Sunday, QuiltEssential Co had their annual Block-of-the-Month quilt show.  I had a real shock when I walked in the door and saw my quilt hanging there with a 1st Place ribbon on it.   I was so surprised that I forgot to take a picture of it.   I have this old picture.  You can read more about this quilt here.


It is very densely quilted but I didn’t take many close up pictures of it.
