Charlie

 This quilt is the result of February's  3 -yard quilt design at 

                       2024 3YD Quilt Series Sew Along - Material Girlfriends

 I selected fabrics from a collection of an Angela Walters quilt along from days/year? past.  There was enough to make it a twin size, so that was my goal.  I made 35 blocks.  There was a limited amount left of the rose/white design print,  so I put it all in the border with a bit saved aside for center squares of the blocks. The green background fabric is a celery green and not as dark as it looks in the photo. It finished at 66 x 84 and has already been donated to the local foster child mission at our church.


I used a  light gray spiral wide backing and 80/20 batting.  I quilted it with Glide threads of course; navy thread cross stitching in the chain portions and a great blending thread in all the rest, called Lemon Ice. I used  the "Every Leaf " templates by Amanda Murphy to make the flower design in the blocks.  It really went quickly.  I tried  using the every leaf templates to make a horizontal chain design in the flower border (without marking).  That didnt go as well, but the child recipient won't know its not perfect.

Dino Dinosaur

 I stuck with this project until it was finished...a purpose and a deadline always works wonders.  This quilt was pieced with assorted panel parts and more from stash.  It was intended to be a child's throw/play quilt, but I thought it made sense to use up the panels,  and so it turned into a twin bed size - 68 x 85 .   Now I just need to piece together some leftovers to make pillowcases.



The backing is an aqua wideback fabric and  80/20 batting. I quilted it on my sit-down with Glide aqua thread in top and bobbin.  Oh I did use matching color Glide threads in many parts of the panels. It has a variety of quilting designs; diamond crosshatch in the long panels, straight lines in some divider sections, Stars in some dividers and larger stars in the final border.  The dinosaur blocks were stitched around the elements with stippling in the backgrounds.

London Calling - Blocks 7, 8, 9

 More blocks ready for London Calling.  Cutting one each of different fabrics and sizes is not my strong suit.  These little blocks are definitely a challenge and either I'm mixed up (which is always possible)  or there is error in naming fabric numbers in the instructions.  Thank goodness for color images.  Dont look too closely at my block #9,  the wheels on the bus that go round and round -- mine are more like Fred Flinstones.


My Block 7 & 8 both required alot of unstitching and re-doing.  It was not my best day.


Block # 9  gives you a bit of a choppy ride on the bus. (no refunds). I am quite happy with the clock.


This is all the progress I have to offer this week as I've been spending my stolen moments quilting on a twin bed size quilt.
