I have managed to keep up with the 365 quilt challenge.  I’ve got my first 21 blocks of the year done:

WIP2016JAN20-1

 

My Quilts of Valour WIP is on the longarm getting ditched while I decide how I want to quilt it.

WIP2015JAN20-2

And finally, I have all the blocks pieced on my baby quilt so I am in the process of sewing the blocks together.  I haven’t decided if I am going to add any borders.

I’ve got several works in progress this month.  First, I’ve got my September and October blocks done for QuiltEssential Co’s 2015 Block of the month.  Two more blocks to go and then I have to come up with a quilt top design to incorporate the 12 blocks.

I’ve been playing with layouts for my HST gift quilt:

And I’ve made a bunch of blocks for my Leftovers VI quilt.  I still have no idea how I am going to lay them out

Even though it is very time consuming, I’m enjoying FMQ Leftovers V.  Here is a sneak peak:

I’ve been off work for almost a week so I’ve managed to fit in quite a bit of quilting time. First off, I’ve piece the August BOM:
2015BOMAUG

I’ve also managed to make a few dozen log cabin blocks for “Leftovers V”.  This block has been on my bucket list for a while now.  Log cabins can be used to make so many interesting designs.  I like the way the blocks are coming together and I hope to the have the quilt top finished by the end of the month. Still mulling around ideas on how I want to quilt it.

I was great at keeping up to date with Quiltessentials BOM (block of the month) program until June and then I lost the handle. We are a week away from picking up August’s fabric bundle so I got my act together today and completed June and July.

BabyBoyQT
It took me a while to settle on a final design for my baby boy quilt top. These ‘L’ blocks are so flexible and can be laid out in so many ways.  The top is all pieced and it is just waiting for FMQ.

My Quilts of Valour quilt is also coming along.  I have 90% of the HSTs done and now I am just experimenting with different designs.  I’m leaning towards the last layout.

WIP and FAL #2

HighTeaGirl

I finished the girl’s version of High Tea which gives me my second FAL for the 4th quarter (FAL wish list).  I went a little overboard with the quilting but it was good therapy for me.  It helped to keep my mind off of Tango’s passing.  This was the pattern that I tested for Adrianne from On the Windy Side.  I also have a boy’s version in our local football team’s colours.  It is waiting for time on the longarm.

First I just did this design in pink and I was happy with it….or so I thought.

FMQ-1

Then I came back in with orange thread and added the inner petals filled in with pebbles.  Still not satisfied I added the inner orange loops.

FMQ-2

Then I decided to fill the orange loops with thread to give it more dimension.  I was happy with the final design and moved on to work on the next row.  Then I got the bright idea to do some dense quilting in the background to allow the design to really pop forward.  I lost track of how much time I put into the FMQ in the 15 white squares but it was substantial.

Leftovers IV is still on the longarm.  Here is a sneak peak at the quilting I’ve done so far.

I’ve also been working on a commission quilt for my Massage Therapist.  She gave me an inspiration pillowcase and then left the rest up to me so that she would be surprised.
