Building Log Cabins



 I've been wanting to make a Log Cabin block quilt; this is my first one.  (I've made a couple of quilts with the Courthouse Step variation.)  I ordered up some Cotton + Steel Moon Rabbit in Navy and two Kona Skinny Strip pack.  I've gotten two complete rows around the centers.  Lots more to do, but so far, I'm happy with how the blocks are turning out.  I'm being creatively lazy and just taking the strips in the order they're on the roll.

The bottom photo is my attempt to get a decent photo, yesterday.  No luck, because of the stiff breeze.

SDMQG Vintage Quilt Revival QAL ~ April Blocks


These blocks are called Mosaic No 8 and Tilted Star, made for April.  Now, I'm all caught up!


I made two of the Mosaic No 8, one hot and one cool.  I'll decide later which one I'll use in the quilt, the other will certainly find a good home, perhaps in the quilt back.

SDMQG Vintage Quilt Revival QAL ~ 2nd March Block


This is the 2nd March block.  No paper-piecing, but lots of bias edges; I spray-starched the heck out of those pieces.  I used the Washi print because I really didn't want an 8.5" solid color diamond in the middle of the block.  I'm hoping to be caught up with the April blocks by Monday.  Goals are good.

Wheel of Fortune, March Block SDMQG Vintage Quilt Revival. I'm playing catch up, one more March block to go, then on to April. I really love how this paper pieced block turned out.

2015 Mystery Quilt Along with Pat Sloan - April Block



 Yipee!  I feel like I'm ahead of the game.  Today I did the April Block for the 2015 Mystery Quilt Along with Pat Sloan.  No April Fools joke, here.   ‪#‎PatSloan2015Mystery‬

2015 Mystery Quilt Along with Pat Sloan - March Block


I came in right under the wire with this March block for the 2015 Mystery QAL.   I really love how it turned out.



Photographing all three completed blocks together was a challenge because of a breeze, but some extra clothes pins helped a lot.

Scrappy Scrapalious




 I seems I've been working on this scrappy quilt top forever.  It has been a pretty long time, the month of March.  It's large, 88x88", and it's going on my bed when it's finished.  I started sorting scraps, and I had a mountain of them.  First, I removed all the solids, then all the really girly prints.

From the remaining scraps, some pieces were very small and netted one or two 2.5x5" strips, and some were large enough to cut many strips.  As I worked, at each stage, I kept shuffling the strips so the fabrics would be scattered across the quilt, as much as possible.  Working without a design wall, forces me to be creative in the assembly.  I'm really happy with how it turned out.

Before I decide on the quilt back, I want to work on the San Diego Modern Quilt Guild Vintage Quilt Revival QAL March and April blocks and the 2015 Mystery Quilt Along with Pat Sloan March and April blocks.

There's always something to do around here.  Since my husband passed away on January 27th, I seem to have less time for my two passions, quilting and reading.  Bob took up a lot slack around here, so I could indulge in quilting and reading.
