Wonky House Swap + Block Lotto


For several months earlier this year I took part in a swap facilitated by Jane from http://janesfabrics.blogspot.co.nz/.  We swapped wonky houses, trees, stars and 4 patch blocks.  I finally put them together over the last couple of days.  Signature blocks were also included with the house blocks and I have included those on the front of the quilt under the respective house blocks.
I also won wonky star blocks from http://www.blocklotto.com/feed/ in July.  I am using some of these to border my quilt. I have attached  the first border to the left hand side of the quilt  The stars differ from the ones shown above - I will have to take more photos as I progress but for now it is time to get ready for work.  Cant wait to get back to this.

What a happy quilt, I love the variety of designs and the colors. Looking forward to seeing it all finished.

I see my block in there - how exciting. Wish I were as far along as you are in getting blocks pieced together. Great work!

QUILTY 365

This is my first 8 weeks of Quilty 365.  This will be linked back to http://quiltyfolk.blogspot.co.nz/2016/01/january-quilty-365-linkup.html
I started my blocks on November 1st and have decided to sew them together in 2 week strips.  I am thinking that I will end up with too many blocks to make a well proportioned quilt so may have to incorporate the last few months into the backing -we will see how it progresses.  My blocks are 4.5" square and I am varying the size of my circles.  I am using scrap pieces of my low value fabrics for the background -even piecing many of the background squares to use up smaller scrap pieces.  As I do a lot of scrap quilting and love working with tiny scraps of fabric I am also making some of my circles scrappy.
I belong to a private facebook group of 50 fellow quilters and several of us are playing along with this project. 

Two Years Of 12 x 12 Art Quilts

A group of local quilters has recently completed two years of making 12" x 12" art quilts -completing one every two months working to a selected theme for each one.  I really enjoyed this experience and am now taking part in a 20" x 15" challenge working to colour themes.  We have three months to complete these. 

Here are some of my 12 x 12 quilts
"Spring"
"Vintage"        
"Temptation"  -my idea for this was "The Grass Is Always Greener" and it is made in my favourite style of sewing small crumbs of fabric together. "Perspective" "Nursery Rhyme" - "Rain Rain Go Away" "Autumn"
I will need to track down some of the other images on my computer and will put them in another post. 
It has been a long time since I last posted but we have been having a conversation about blogging in an on line group I belong to and it has inspired me to have another go at this.
