I DID IT !!  I managed to make 15 projects during the year and we still have almost 5 months left.

Latest project is another wall quilt.  It's a Ribbon Candy Quilt Company pattern called Popsicle Skinnie.

This is what an Icky Thump looks like when you piece it together backwards


My first proper one for sloth is in my gallery on page 1

Straying off topic just for a short minute.

It's been very hot and humid here too and that's what usually brings our storms.  This is not the largest piece that came down last night but fairly representative.

Back to regular programming now  Grin

34  My first quilt - yes, you're reading this correctly! in Quilting: Completed Projects by Homerof2 on: July 08, 2015 10:48:48 PM
For those that know me, this is probably a confusing subject line as I've posted many quilts already.  But, really, truly, this is my first ever quilt.   Smiley

I was cleaning out above my bedroom closet a few months back and came across this sealed nicely in a dark plastic bag.  I knew what it was but hadn't looked at it for years nor had I taken photos of it finished.

I started this the beginning of 1999, when my cousin and his wife adopted a baby boy.  I had never quilted before but was a good seamstress.  I found a block pattern online, went to the local fabric store to pick out fabric (yikes!) and started sewing.  I knew before I had the top together it was never going to be given away.  I had spent $50 on material, which was huge for us at that time, and more hours than I care to remember.  After I had the top finished, my SIL suggested that I ask my MIL to hand quilt it, which became another reason it would stay with me.

When all was said and done, I tucked it away for the day I would have a grandchild (even though our sons were only 10 and 8 at the time.)  They are both married now but I'm still sort-of-patiently waiting for the day I get to use it.

37  Oh Canada in Quilting: Completed Projects by Homerof2 on: June 28, 2015 08:10:50 PM
Just in time for Canada Day, July 1st, I finished a small wall quilt.  It was heavily inspired by a pattern I saw online but since I could not purchase it locally and it was smaller than I wanted, I made up my own.  This is 10 x 28.


My attraction to this idea was the red and white so I used just one maple leaf


We don't usually use stars to represent Canada but it was another way to use red and white material


a special star to represent crafting


and a heart just because I like hearts

39  Yellow, Green, Flowers and a White Pelican in Quilting: Completed Projects by Homerof2 on: May 07, 2015 01:40:23 PM
I offered to make a wall quilt for my mom and asked for suggestions of colors and themes.  Thinking she would just tell me to make whatever I wanted, I was quite surprised when she came back with specifics.

She wanted me to use Green and Yellow, Flowers and a White Pelican.  She said her and Dad decided they should give me a challenge so got specific with the bird.

The measurements are 31" x 11" - strange dimensions but when you aren't working from a pattern, that's what happens.


Much thought went into this project, the most being how to fit a Pelican in.  I found a picture online of a pieced pelican and based my pattern on that.  Not wanting to applique the Pelican, I used the pot material and then cut it to shape.


I wasn't sure if she wanted flowers in the project or just on the material so I covered all my bases.  I had some large floral print fabric so cut these out and made them dimensional by not fully attaching them to the quilt.
