A few years back my friend Sariah made the cutest mountain quilt. I can’t remember what she called it, but HERE is the pattern. I have wanted to make a scrappy version of it every since. Now that the entire world is quarantined, and many of the quilt shops are closed, I got my chance!
Another lady in my quilt guild had done the pattern in the form of lanterns and it hung in our Peach Days community celebration last year. I loved how she arranged her blocks, and I was thinking of finishing this one similarly. Then I looked at it and realized it looks like the Corona Virus! Well, after a few weeks of homeschooling, deep cleaning my fridge, reading every book in my house, and worrying about all of my friends and family getting sick I decided a big nope on that pattern for this time frame.
I played around with it until I had a bit of a color gradient, and decided on a sunrise pattern. This is a side view, and I’m working on a time lapse of the process to make it. I still have to do the outer borders, which will also be scrappy. I can not wait to share it when it is done.
I finished my Christmas quilt, and one other!
Before the quarantine my friend gave me a bunch of cool textured fabric for baby blankets. I started on a pink and quuilt with squares right away, but got sidetracked. Since I’ve had more home time, I finished it up. What do you think of the busy floral binding? I like it a lot. Thank you Ruth!
Hello friends, this is a quilt I just finished. It was inspired by two different beauties I saw on Pinterest. You can see the first one here, and the second one here. I couldn’t find the pattern on Sassafrass lane for the first one this time, but I could swear it used to be there. I did the polka dot binding on a whim, and now I have second thoughts about it, but oh well. I love the idea of a mountain and sky scene. This one is so basic. I might try another one in this style in the future.
Below are a couple of pictures of my works in progress. I found a cute stack of 5″ pre-cuts that I’m making into a small quilt with blue for the negative space. Here you can see me chain stitching away …
And I am so excited to have put this Christmas quilt together at last. I don’t know how many years it has been since our Quilt Guild did this block exchange. We each made 12 of the same blocks, a 12×12 & a 6×12 or two 6×6’s. We did it in gemtones, and I loved how it turned out. It is very unusual in that the styles are all quite different, but it reminds me of all of my quilt guild friends, so it will be a treasure for me. I plan to bind it in a solid black. Hopefully before Christmas, haha.
I made this quilt for my sister for Christmas. I was shopping for kid cousin Christmas presents on Black Friday, and I saw this cute fat quarter pack, and it reminded me of her. I had already got her something else for Christmas, so there was no pressure that it had to be done in time.
Still, when I got it home it kept calling me from the sewing room. “I’m here! Come and play with me, please.” So I did. I didn’t make a great plan, so it came out a little disorganized, but my sister is pregnant with her fourth baby. I’m confident that at this point she can handle a bit of disorder.
This may have been one of the fastest quilts I’ve ever finished. I had a little break from work, and it was complete in a week. I think I should do that more often, because it was so satisfying!
I am so excited to have finished this quilt. I have been working on it for quite a few years. I can’t even remember how many at this point. I instantly fell in love with these panels when I went to my local quilt shop and bought the big one and the little squares.
I decided to make it a window quilt after seeing some cute ones done with panels at quilt guild. It’s a long story, and I posted a video about it on my youtube channel, but here are a couple of photos of the things that kept me stumped. It’s funny how it turned out that just a few simple fill in blocks finished it up nicely.
I got the whole quilt finished and bound, and then realized that I hadn’t quilted in one tree, and I had quilted the other one, so I had to re-load it on my long arm machine for five little triangles. Oh well, it was completely worth it. I’m so happy it’s complete. Merry Christmas!
