LOOKING BACK ON 2018 QUILTS

Bea Lee did a post about all of the quilts she has done this year.  Now I have not been over there but knowing her she has doubled what I have done.  That girl is like the energizer bunny.

I liked the idea of showing the quilts made during the year and so I am now going to photo bomb you of all the quilts I have done.  I have only shown one top that is not done, needless to say I have started a few and not finished (yes, I admitted to that).

This does not include the runners, pillows etc that I have done.

It has been a busy 2018!!!!





This was January 2018 Island Batik Project using Alpine Jingle called "Tree Farm"


Just a fun Teddy Bear Quilt.


Island Batik Scrappy Quilt


Slanted Half Hexie Quilt using Island Batik Scraps

Jenny from Missouri Star Quilt Company does a you tube on this.

Once again a quilt using Island Batik Scraps reproducing a quilt that was done in the 1890's



Sunshine and Flowers, using Island Batik 5" strips and Aurifil thread




This star quilt, one block and you are done!

I don't have pictures but I made two more of these  star quilts with 10" squares that I had.  I sold them as fast as I could make them for  a Charity project I was working on.


This little quilt for my grandson.


 Double Dresden delight using Island Batik Scraps


Paint Splatters using Island Batik foundation bundle.


Victoria and Albert fabric by Island Batik.  I have always loved baskets.
In fact, this is one quilt that I have trouble parting with and so I won't.

Used Hobbs batting light and Aurifl Thread for the blanket stitching and quilting.


Dear William fabric by Island Batik and Aurifil threads

This is one of my all time favorites, it is paper pieced which I designed and love.  I just need to tweek it a big but I looooove it.  Reminds me so much of Samoa.


This really does lay flat, it is just hung poorly but this is another Star quilt using Island Batik Scraps.


I just had to add this quilt, the top is not quilted but it is done.  As soon as I get my quilting room back, this puppy will go on my longarm.  This quilt covers my king size bed and once again...a broken record I am....I love it. 


This is just a small 36" quilt that I was trying a new technique out on.


Paisley Dots by Island Batik, using the Quick Curve Ruler by Sew kind of Wonderful.


Finished up this quilt from the squares we found in the attic.


Wonky Basket Quilt using the Tinsel Island Batik fabric line.


Using the Quick Curve Ruler again for the Log Cabin Island Batik Challenge, using scraps.


Crystal Cove Island Batik Fabrics making half square log cabins.



I just finished up two more quilts for my February project for Island Batik.  It is really for the January Blog hop but my day is the last day and that is February 1st.  I hope you join us.

I am excited to start a New Year with Island Batik, I am one of the original Ambassadors and have enjoyed every minute of it.  I want to take a few minutes to Thanks Island Batik, Hobbs batting, and Aurifil Threads for the awesome Year!
