Breezy Quilt, #2


While making the Breezy #1 quilt top, I thought it'd be fun to have more colors in the background.  For Breezy #1, I used Kona Windsor and Coty.  For Breezy #2, I used Kona Turquoise, Chartreuse, Citrus, Red, and Surf.  Thank heavens for a fabric stash!

This is a fun finish for me.  Each month I make 4 quilt blocks, 2 to donate to my quilt guilds' Charity BOM project, and 2 to keep for quilts like this one.  One of the blocks in this quilt are from a class I took at Quiltcon a couple of years ago.  The quilt back is made from fabric I purchased; I thought it was printed madras patchwork.  So much for thinking, it's actually pieced; lots of squares of madras sewn together.


May your bobbins always be full,

Breezy, Quilt #1

 

This is a fun finish for me.  Each month I make 4 quilt blocks, 2 to donate to my quilt guilds' Charity BOM project, and 2 to keep for quilts like this one.  Three of the blocks in this quilt are from a class I took at Quiltcon a couple of years ago.  The quilt back is made from fabric I purchased; I thought it was printed madras patchwork.  So much for thinking, it's actually pieced; lots of squares of madras sewn together.

Sew Hometown Quilt


This is the Inspiring Stitches BOM Quilt Project from 2019 called Sew Hometown.  I pieced the quilt top last year, simultaneously with the Heartland Heritage quilt top.  The two quilt tops kept me pretty busy.  There is one glaring error in this top, and I decided to just leave it.


Above is the pieced quilt back and below is a group photo of the two quilts that are finished, so far.


Started 1/02019

May your bobbins always be full,
