Making the Quilt & Shield
Ye Olde Forest Quilt shop has moved across the street more or less. Solicited to help, we had fun nonetheless while tolerating the heat, the work, the chaos, the meal breaks, did I mention the heat?, the concrete floors, the water--lots and lots of cold water. :Slowly things came together for the most incredible sale one could imagine. Batiks, grunges & other Moda bolts all on sale for ridiculously low prices plus an extra % off for end of the bolt. Patterns, Anita Goodesign CDs, needles, books, thread, so much more I can't begin to cover it all.
Fabric I picked up includes
AH! The sale has been extended all week
Occasionally I buy fabric if the price is super right like $5 yard & gorgeous. Here is my limited stash. If you can use any of these, let me know. The same is true of other Planned Projects. Eventually I hope to get around to them but if you see something you like, let me know.
Apr 12: Joyce asked if there was fabric with Scriptures on it. I found this panel & been playing with layout options to show her. If she likes it, fine, If not, I've had some fun.
Apr 13: Fabric is on the way. Just ordered the teal for borders.
Apr 17: All the fabric came in today. Bought a bit of border sashing since I can't use the top & bottom of the panels.
This is a modification of a quilt posted on MSQC. I turned the blocks on point.
The Quatrefoil Quilt: Easy Quilting Tutorial with Jenny Doan of Missouri Star Quilt Co
Feb 13: I learned a new quilting word today that is actually quite common--Quatrefoil. The fabric used here grabs me whenever I dare to enter Sew Original quilt shop.
Feb 14: Started off with a horizontal quilt layout but like the on-point rendition much better for these fabrics.
Dec 05-16: I love doing this every year. Above is what I have in my stocking. You can see all the 12 days at Ye Olde Forest on Facebook.
Jun 05: You know how one search for something specific leads to something else & so on? Well, that happened to me yesterday...again. I was searching for logos about LIFE & kept finding tree of life items & all sort of lesser "art".
Jun 08: Some fabric is here. The panel is on the way.
Jun 10: Panel is here. It is not what I expected (looser weave than regular quilting quality fabric) but it is beautiful & will be fine.
Dec 29: Been wanting to try a Bargello. When I saw this on the wall at the local quilt shop (all I needed was one strip to have enough binding for my Wimpy quilt), my mathematical mind couldn't resist. Of course they had kits with the same fabrics so I paid way too much even at 20% off, may go insane trying to follow the detailed instructions (Yikes!) but I so want this on my cabin living room wall over the TV.
Aug 23, 2014: Purchased 2 pre-cut packages of 10" squares.
Apr 16, 2017: Saw a pattern I love for these fabrics, Cinnamon Toast
May 24: Bought the Cinnamon Toast quilt pattern.
My 04, 2018: Look at some of the quilt ideas under Salsa.
