Best Friends QAL, First Quilt Top is Assembled



I'm making two of these Best Friends Quilts at the same time.  This is the first quilt top assembled.  I included the bottom photo so you could see how freakin' big this is!  I didn't measure it, but it's supposed to be 96 inches square.  Talk about fabric-wrangling!

Now, to work assembling the second quilt top.

Bernie in the quilt shop



Just for fun, today!  These Bernie memes are all over social media and have made me happy for the past two days.

Best Friends Quilt Along

I decided to do the Best Friends Quilt Along, sponsored by the Fat Quarter Shop.  I did a fabric pull from my stash, including 2 different quilt kits that I decided not to make.


Then I got busy.  I decided to make 2 sets of everything, so I will end up with two Queen-size Quilts.  The blocks are all paper-pieced, the first block was a Log Cabin.  Here are my 24 Log Cabin Blocks.


I just laid them out willy-nilly!  They turned out to be Improv Log Cabin blocks because I made an error and didn't want to use Jack to fix it.  I just kept going and I think they're fine.  The next block is an Economy Block and I only need to make 16 total!

Lattice Quilt Top


The first 2021 quilt top is finished. Such a simple pattern called "Lattice", it's a freebie from the Fat Quarter Shop. I used a Layer Cake of Sherbet Pips by Aneela Hoey that I've had for ages. Now to piece the quilt back. I love how it turned out.

 The top measures 48" x 57.5".

The Diamond Ripples Quilt


This is my final finish for 2020, quilt #22.  It's a special quilt for a special family.  This is the third quilt I've made for them.  


The quilt measures 57" x 72", and will be on its way to Belgium next week.


We're having a very windy day, here in Murrieta.  It made taking quilt photos a challenge, but I got it done!

Pool Party Quilt


Well, my LAQ surprised me, and the rest of her customers.  She pushed herself to start 2021 with an empty "to-do" list.  That meant she needed to quilt a lot of quilts, and some were like mine, not due until mid-January.  So I got this Pool Party quilt back before Christmas, and I got the binding on this week.  I really love how it turned out.





The Pool Party Quilt was a result of my Pre-Cut Challenge.  I used a layer cake and various black and white low-volume fabrics, all from stash.  It measures 65" x 81", and will stay here at Casa Prytz.



The last photo shows that two hangers just didn't do the job!  Fun times.  This is quilt #21 for 2020; see something good did come out of this horrible year.
