HELLO FRIENDS, THOUGHT I DISAPPEARED?

I was not swallowed by a black hole..... life just happened.

When Craftsy went out of business, I purchased two fat quarter bundles and gave one to my sister.  We both decided to do this Sew Kind of Wonderful Nine Patch on Point.
91 x 91




Next is the Star of  Bethlehem Quilt.  One block quilt.  My sister, Jeanette, came up with this idea.  She sure gets me into a lot of trouble...  Fits my Queen Size bed perfectly, can't remember how big it is but has a nice over hang.



This purple quilt is a block from Jaqueline Steves sew along from a few years back.

                  

                                       Here is the back with the beautiful Samoan fabric.



Sew Kind of Wonderful Chic Country, now this was a fun fun quilt to make and I will be making another.  I used Java Batiks from Inchworm Fabrics, a few Island Batik, and Timeless Treasure fabrics.


Jeanette and I both purchased Bella Mariposa fat quarter bundle from "Quilt in a day".  I made ginger jars as you see below and another quilt which is not done.  My sister has hers almost done.  My sister is a very busy gal, it is a wonder she gets any quilting done at all.  She has a full time job and a huge yard she likes to garden in when she gets home which is usually late.


I finally finished my king size log cabin quilt.  I was not able to use my longarm because once again we have family in that room, so I did it on my Jazz.  I don't know if you can see but for each row of log cabin I chose a different quilting design...was loads of fun.  Took me three days to quilt up.  I used the Accuquilt Log Cabin die.  I forgot the size, I do know width wide it is 108 because I had to add more to the backing and the backing was one of those 108" backing.  

                                   

I made this little baby quilt for a sweet cousin of mine using the Accuquilt 8" Go Cube and the Sunbonnet Sue die as well.


I finally got around to making pillow cases for this quilt.   Decided to put Gene Black pillow on there.  The pillow was his design and I just made it into a pillow.


This is my newest project.  With all of the turmoil going on I can not think of a more appropriate quilt.  I just love our country.  I used the Ohio Star Accuquilt Die and the Accuquilt Alphabet die.

Just have to finish her up.  It is for the Local Republican Woman group here in town to raffle off.


This is for a sweet little friend and her new baby.  Last night I quilted it.  I actually made it all in one day.  I could have finished it up but my machine messed up on me so I had to rip out a whole section....pooey.




                  So as you can see, I have been doing a little quilting since I last posted!

They are all so very beautiful. Love the log cabin the most.

Oh my goodness.... You have done a lot. I love the pillow. I have to laugh - the design was something I painted for a faux stained glass window for the set of a play I was in. It makes a lovely pillow. I think I need a pattern to make my own.

You HAVE been busy! I love all your quilts. We've had grandkids around for most of the past 3 weeks so I have done very little (i.e., nothing) in my sewing room for too long. I'm having withdrawals, but it's worth it to have the kids here. Thanks for sharing!
