365 Day Quilt Along - Panel 2

A block design every day for an entire year!  I'm still hangin in there and truly enjoying it.  I see an improvement in my quilting too.  My only dilemma is keeping each design fresh in my mind since there are so many.  A big big thank you to Natalia Bonner of  Piece and  for all her hard work presenting and inspiring us with this long term project.

and so Panel # 2  is now finished.   I am hoping young teens will like this quilt design.  The colors are bright and happy.  This one measures 52 x 59.  It has one layer of cotton batting which made it easy to push around while quilting.  I quilt on a Janome 9400  and  an Artistic Quilter 16 sit down.

and since my quilting brain always heads straight for the backing so I can see all the quilting definition,   here is a pic of the back.


I am joining these linky parties this week.  Be sure to visit them to see what other creative quilters are sharing  too.

Purples worked in the plan very nicely …….

Quilt Tops - Q4K 19-15 & 19-16

I made good progress last week.  Along with machine quilting on the 365 Day QAL with Natalia Bonner  and  machine quilting on the aqua version of dream big with Amy Johnson ( these ladies are really inspiring me),  I slipped in some needed piecing...…  the August kits for quilt 4 kids.  I wish I had more of those fabrics to make them  bigger ---- maybe next time.  It was really fun and quick to put together.


These should be fun quilt quilt.  In the meantime,  I'm linking up with my favorite parties.....  Be sure to visit these sites to see what other creative quilters are sharing this week.

Quilt 4 Kids 19-14

I'm 2 months behind in my goal of 2 quilts for kids per month.  I cut 20 kits to make up this year,  so 6 more to go by the end of year.  Probably can get that done.

This is one from the July batch.  It finished at 41 x 54.  I did not have a definite quilting plan.  I used rulers on this one and just played on it.

and here is a photo of the back, a burgundy fleece;

This week I'm joining these linky parties.  I hope you will check them out to see what other creative quilters are sharing.
