Quilt Show!

Most of my haul from the Hershey Quilt Show.  I also purchased a hand dyed flannel quilt kit that they will ship to me for free because they had run out.  Gorgeous watercolor inspired blocks with white sashing.

Lots of sample fabrics for a class I am going to take in a few weeks.  It's called The Artful Eye - art quilting.  Looking very forward to that.

On Point Wins!

On point wins!  And I think 2 borders is enough.  The clock fabric is cool, but this baby is big enough.  I do my own quilting, so I need it to be manageable.  74X62 - a big twin.  Not bad.

Now, for backing.  I am thinking either flannel or fleece?  What do you think?  The denim seams are a bit bumpy, so I thought batting plus fleece would make it more comfy.

Dr. Who and Blue Jeans

This is a fun pattern I found and decided that Dr. Who needed to be paired with Blue Jeans scraps.  Original pattern calls for the blocks to be on point, but I am torn.  Which do you think looks better?

I LUV the Dr. Who fabric - too darned cute.

These are the first blocks from a kit I purchased while in Kansas this summer.  I saw a sample of this quilt on the wall there and I literally started to drool, it is just so beautiful.  Purple being my favorite color and silk being just gorgeous.  i will likely name the quilt something appropriate to the visit.  My blogging/husky owning pal, KZK, brought me to this shop, which is her local place.  It was a wonderful shop and the folks there were extremely helpful, allowing me to spend lots of money!

Funky Learnin Quilt

Finally!  I finished this quilt!  I had started it at least a year ago.  Saw the pattern at a quilt show and had a lot of fun piecing it, but when it came to quilting it, I was stumped.  So, I decided that I would just PRACTICE and do whatever I wanted.  I tried a bunch of stuff, didn't care what thread I used, everything.

Gotta love that funky zebra binding, huh?  I put the binding on by machine and totally missed the front seam line - don't care!  It was fun and it is DONE!

Coatesville Table Topper

Finally, I have the Coatesville Table Topper finished - at least the top of it.  Now to layer and quilt. I won't go too crazy on it, but most like do a lot of ditch quilting.  I hope people like it and maybe bid on it if we decide to auction it off at the fundraiser.
