Well realistically, I think I'm going to get 3 more quilts completed (along with some PJs and fleece pullovers for J) before baby comes and then I'm putting up my sewing machine for a while.  So I will have to stalk you all at that point.  I'm bummed I probably won't get to the textured sampler or sashiko quilt before then but oh well...

Hub downloaded the tula pink city sampler book for me a couple weeks ago. Is that the one? We were looking for modern quilting but found that one...
There some really cool blocks in...

Oh. And another finish.

Seeking scraps! I'm in need of a variety of white on white scraps. (2.5inch square minimum) for pixel quilts. Have any? Swap for? PM me! Smiley

You guys, my guild now has 184 members! It's nuts! I'm soooo busy running the guild but I'm making an effort to do some of my own sewing (helps keep my sanity!). Sorry I'm not around here more, but I don't see that changing much for the rest of the year. Here's a little bit of what I've been working on.

We're doing a Medallion Along this year, each month we officers present a new round. This month was my month to work on it, so I had to sew my own as well as the guild one we are sewing together. It's made of Botanics fabric by Carolyn Friedlander, donated by Robert Kaufman. This one we will raffle off to our members at the end of the year.



This one is mine, I love it! Using lots of fun fabrics with a lot of gray (especially Laura Gunn's Painter's Canvas in Platinum and one from V and Co) for my neutrals. Also in there: some MM ta dots, Sweet as Honey, Kate and Birdie, Violet Craft Waterfront Park (dice), Bonnie and Camille, Noteworthy by Sweetwater, and some other random faves.



Our guild also has a couple of quilt shows coming up for Quilt Knit Stitch! this summer. I used that fun method that is going around, slothy made a quilt using it too I think. I offset the second row though for visual interest since it's so small. I don't think I have a finished one of my Michael Miller Glitz mini quilt that will be in our PMQG exhibit, but here it is after quilting but before binding.



And the only pic I have of the back when I was hand sewing the binding (95% of my quilts I machine stitch the binding completely, so it was a rare moment!)



There is also a larger exhibit for Pacific Northwest Metallic quilts that lots of Modern Quilt Guilds in the area were invited to show in. This is what I'm entering for that exhibit (don't know if I'm in yet, there are so many amazing entries!). This is my own design "Offset Arrows" (designed using Threadbias design tool) made with Robert Kaufman Metallic Linen, Metallic Burlap, and Metallic Tussah. Also some RK Carolyn Friedlander Botanics (the orange) and an RK Kona solid. I used gold metallic thread to hand quilt it, and randomly found some RK backing fabric in my stash that perfectly matched! I used a flange method of binding for that little pop of color around the front edges.






Sorry, this was a late night shot when I found this fabric for the back in my stash at 2 am!

The metallic and burlap fabrics are fantastic!

I love that you use orange a lot...it has become quite a favorite color of mine!

Your first quilt almost looks like it was inspired by Indian art...

A finish for me.  I almost forgot to take a picture before gifting it.  I am not sporty and the mom is a co-worker, so her tastes are what I know from work - and I know she loves Alabama football.  So, that was the basis for the quilt.  I picked out the grey flannel elephants for the back so it was soft and tied in with 'Bama... and I guess they are decorating in grey elephants, so yay!  I wanted it to be masculine, but still fun
