Busy Bee

I've been really busy quilting.  My "stay at home" time ends Monday, so I've challenged myself to get as much done as possible before then.  Here's what I've been working on (since I obviously have not been blogging!)

This is a block for the Bumble Beans quilt along.  I didn't plan my layout too well so my colors are off but I am still pleased with how it turned out!

This is a little quilt I dreamt up about a year ago.  I had a some difficulty finding the perfect gray so it got put away for awhile but I decided to pull it out again and get it finished.  It is much more striking in person!  The HST are cut from 4" squares I purchased off E-bay during my 4" square addiction.

This is from 2 Christmas charm packs - Ready, Set, Snow and leftovers from another one I forgot the name of :(.  The border is a red with white snowflakes that I picked up at Joann's.  (I'll post a better pic after it's quilted).

LOVE how this turned out!

Box of Chocolates - I had a bundle of Chocolate fat quarters in my stash and decided it was time to do something with them.  I kept it simple as I didn't want to take away from the fabric.  I just love these colors!

Spirited - about a year ago I won a charm pack - Spirited - and thought it would make a funky little baby quilt.  I like all the coin/charm quilts I've been seeing on flickr so I followed suit and made one!

This was supposed to be a "Turning Twenty" quilt but I pieced most of the blocks wrong so this is what we ended up with.  It's for my daughter Caitlyn and she wants softball fabric on the back.  I don't think it's big enough for her bed so it might get another border when I decide on a color.

Wow!  That was a lot.  I start my new job on Monday. . . it's kinda of bitter sweet.  I've sure enjoyed having 3 years at home with the kids but its high time I start contributing to the bank account.  At least 12hr shifts will still allow some quilting time!

Until next time!

  1. I think some of the green that's in the middle would make a good second border.

    But that's just me...
