Double Dozen - Six Inch Squares Done!

Tonight I finished the twenty-four 6inch squares for Kaye England's Double Dozen quilt

My hope is to have the quilt top assembled by the LMNOPQ Bee meeting at my house in June

Double Dozen -12inch squares done!!

I attended a class taught by Kaye England last November and have been trying to get back to working on it.  This month I decided to finish at least eight more squares of the thirty-six needed. 

As of today I have just completed the last of the twelve 12inch squares.  I also have sixteen of the six inch squares done.  

Here is a picture of the twelve inch squares

Craftsy 2013 Block of the Month -May Done

The instructions suggest using wof but I am using some of the many blue and yellow fat quarters that I have in my stash. Those are my favorite colors and I some of them are from my mother's stash.

I like the way these came out and may use this block again sometime for another quilt.

Pillow Case Night again

More pillowcases for Conker Cancer patients. These are collected by NSQG at our monthly meetings. I watch remnant bins at fabric stores to get most of these pillowcases and then add some my stash fabrics also

The cuff on the purple one is a fabric from a friend of my friend Moe -she shared her friends stash and asked to us to use it for a pillowcase

Braided Links Quilt

I used Kimberly Einmo's pattern called Braided Links to make a quilt for my nephew's baby girl.
The pattern called for 30 squares (6 by 5) but I only made 20 (5 by 4)

Quilt Shop Treasures from Colorado

My husband and I went out to Fort Collins, Colorado last weekend to figure out if we might like to retire there someday. No decision yet but we had a good time looking at properties, sightseeing, visiting microbreweries and finding quilt shops

The first one I found was Mama Said Sew in downtown Fort Collins. They actually had the Robert Kaufman line of fabrics called Architextures that I have been looking for.  I bought some for my stash

The second shop was Sweetheart Quilt Shoppe in Loveland, Colorado and I found lots of items that I just had to have.  The patterns were actually picked out by my husband because they have a mountain theme.  The Columbine fabric is for a future quilt of the states that we visit and the fat quarters are for baby quilts and Quilt of Valor quilts

I actually have another mountain appliqué kit coming from the Sweetheart Quilt Shoppe that my husband also picked out.  I am so blessed that my husband supports and encourages my quilt habit!
