FO: Sparkling Halloween Cider

FO: Sparkling Halloween Cider

Even though I've made Halloween things before, this is my first Halloween quilt! Jeni has used the Sparkling Cider pattern many times, and I always enjoy seeing it. So, I decided that it would make a great Halloween quilt.
I mean, I love stars, and scrappiness, so it felt like a great fit.

Not surprisingly, this could just as well be considered a cat quilt.

I used a variety of stashed prints, including Lizzy House ghosts, Cotton & Steel prints, solids, and a Heidi Kenney Spoonflower print.

I made the "Lap size", which is nice 64" x 80". I backed it with a widescreen and quilted it with random straight lines (in this Sulky color). The binding is this amazing print.

Quilty WIPs update and a favorite FO

FO: Mustard & Pink Geese

I didn't intend to be away for so long, but I can tell you that three of the quilts in that stack from my last post are done (and additionally, another three quilts have been started and finished. Additionally, I went to Maine, experienced Harvey, got a new kitchen, and lots of other fun stuff.
So, today, I want to jump back in and share a very favorite finish.

I shared this project last year, and it was just so fun and scrappy to sew. I used lots of favorite prints and made flying geese and other triangles, and randomly pieced it all together.

A good friend asked me to finish it for a gift she needed, and although I was sad to do so, I am hopeful that the recipient will love it as much as I do.

Quilt WIPs update

This is a stack of finished quilt tops, just waiting for basting. There are ten here, plus one more that is already basted.

I'm not saying I won't work on other projects for the rest of the year, but this stack will be my main focus for the remaining months of 2017. I haven't shared all of these projects here, but included in the stack are:

Scrappy Quarter Log Cabin
Big Plaid Log Cabin (bottom of this post)
Aerial Grove
Scrappy Geese
String Diamonds

It will be fun to see how many I can finish this year!
