2014 Finish Along Quarter 3 - List

Sooo...maybe this quarter I can finish this post in time to make the link party at The Littlest Thistle!  Especially since I am starting it at the beginning of June. ;) I am hoping to update some of the photos, although not much has changed with my list - except that it's gotten bigger!  And I finished my Butter Churn in Purple quilt.  Which I'm not even sure was on the last list. lol.

This Apple Cider quilt needs a backing, 
basting, quilting and binding!  It's a queen.

This baby quilt I want to border in more black but
offset the patchwork so it's more in a corner.

 Summer Sampler Quilt Along quilt 
needs six more blocks. And I might re-do the star
block on the bottom right.

I got tired of machine blanket stitching all these triangles on this baby quilt. That is all that has to be done before basting, quilting and binding.

 This quilt was supposed to be a mini quilt made with just one block (the red border was the outside of said block).  But I fell in love and couldn't stop making them. Again, just needs basting, quilting and binding.  I'm calling it Square Foot Garden because it reminds me of photos of square foot gardens which are 4x4 foot gardens where each square foot of garden is planted with a type of vegetable. Check it out here and here and you'll see what I mean.

Random hourglass quilt I started when I bought a Creative Grids specialty ruler.  
I will have to find the ruler before I can finish this one...

My early attempt at a triple Irish Chain quilt.
I think it was a very ambitious scrappy project that ended when I realized I did not have enough greens. 
My stash has grown since then...but I think it will either turn into a table runner or small quilt

The blocks for my Sweet Baby Pinks quilt  version of the Sweet Baby Blues quilt still need to be made.  
2 down, 33 more to go...

This one needs to be quilted and bound. 
Need a backing fabric first. This one is my July ALYOF goal.

The Swisslandia quilt top needs to be pieced, quilted, bound.
The plan is to have the one red swiss cross and the rest black.

And last but highest priority is this one. 
The long overdue birthday quilt for my sister.  
I only have 2 blocks done.

Can you tell what my favourite part of quilting is yet?  Haha.

Happy quilting!

New Block of the Month

Well, this BOM isn't new - it started in January, but it is new to me.  Every month Aurifil does an awesome interview with a designer and that designer designs a block for the BOM.  I was reading Camille Roskelly's blog yesterday and she is the July Designer of the Month.  There was a picture of the block she designed and I fell in love.  After proceeding through to the Aurifil blog I looked up all the January to June blocks as well.  I've made three of them already! I was up until midnight. haha.  And yes I realize these have nothing to do with my July ALOYF goal but I have 24 days of the month left!

Meet July, June and March (in that order).

I kept to the same colour story that the designers have because I love it and I've always wanted to make a quilt that is primarily blues and reds.  I love the bits of yellow too (it's my third fave colour).

Have you ever fallen in love with a block?  If you have let me know which one it was in the comments!

Happy Quilting!

July Goal

I have decided to join A Lovely Year of Finishes and put in a goal for July.  You have to pick one thing to finish and link it up by the 7th of the month. Then if you link up your finish in the last 7 days of the month you can win prizes!  How awesome is that eh?!  So my single goal for this month is...  

To sandwich, quilt and bind this quilt.  I would also like a name for this quilt.  Any ideas?  They remind me a bit of those things in racing video games that you try to drive over to get super speed?  I don't know if those have a name...  Or I was thinking Odd One Out because there is one single blue "goose" block.  I basically copied this quilt from one that I pinned on Pinterest but I don't know anything about the original.

I had better buy some batting tomorrow or else nothing will be happening with this puppy!  Wish me luck.

Happy Quilting!
