Modern Maples Placemats

I love the modern maples pattern and have made a table runner and a placemat using the pattern. I made two more recently. I really need to make a quilt with it!

September OMG

My goal this month is to finish the second flimsy. I have twin nieces and would like to give them both a quilt for Christmas this year.

Beachie Blocks

I have made the blocks for my Quilt using the Missouri Quilt Co Window pane 9 patch quilt. I am going to sash the blocks. I used green and blue Layer cake squares from Latitude by Kate Spain cut into charm squares.

August OMG

I did it. I quilted and bound this quilt within the month. I still haven't basted the quilt from the last 2 months so it was a good decision to set a new goal.
Here it is before washing. Once again it is hard to get a good photo showing the colours. It is the blueberry park low volume jelly roll.
 I love the fabric on the back although maybe I should have tried to match the circles or as I saw recently added a strip of solid where the backing meets.

Another new project

I love starting new projects and have given up trying to resist. I simply bought more plastic drawers to store my WIPs. I want to make a beachie quilt for a friend and after looking at lots of quilts on pinterest I came up with this design. I used the window pane disappearing 9 patch from Missouri Star Quilt Co and will put wide sashing between each block. I made one test block and I think it will look good.

New Project

So I started another new project. I bought two jolly bars of Zen Chic True Blue  from the fat quarter shop to get the pattern for this quilt. I made so many silly mistakes, putting the half square triangles the wrong way, it was very frustrating. Once I finally got it right it looked great. It is an easy pattern, I was having one of those days!

Kate Spain mini



I have been trying to sort out some of my fabrics, and too many to count UFOs. I found one that was meant to be a lantern quilt but it wasn't going to line up very well so I cut the rectangles into squares and made a rail fence mini. I have been wanting to make a rail fence quilt for a while and this will do for now. I will have to think of something to do with the snowball blocks.
