Quilty Summer

I'm pretty sure it's due to the Eclipse, or maybe because Lorde released her long awaited new album----- which I bought immediately of course because I'm cool AF.....Whichever it is, I've had a lot of quilt finishes this Summer, and I'm super happy about that!

For me, I love piecing the top but the actual "quilting" part is a huge struggle. It's hard physical work, and I have to summon the gods for strength to commence.
Not really.
But you get what I'm sayin'!

I'm talking buying a cart load of Nerds, Starbursts, sparkly water, and a vat of coffee (Columbian only please! AS IF!)....

This Quilt above is 3.5" squares and hugenormous. Like 101" long hugenormous. Yes, I want a trophy.

LMAO




This one below is made with 6.5" squares I think, if I remember correctly. It was a week ago, so I can't be counted on for exactness. 


Look at those crazy eyes on Mia. She has been making me laugh so hard lately with her Nic Cage Face. She makes it spontaneously at me "MOM!!! LOOK!" she'll yell. 

Of course I look immediately because she sounds like she's about to be eaten by fire ants, and then I get this:

I used up lots of fabric I've been hoarding for a while, like this AMH Loominous green print:




I loved this quilt, but I'm sort of over it now. I may sell it, my Etsy Shop will be stocked this week. I'm having a sale since my Quilt Cabinet is bursting at the seams, and I'm "over" a lot of them. What good do they do sitting in a cabinet?! NONE!  I'm going to de-stash some fabric, notions, and patterns I've never used as well. FYI.




This HST Quilt below is in this month's issue of Modern Patchwork. I remember how crazy I felt quilting all those diagonal lines -especially since I COLOR CHANGED each time I hit a new color! I mean--NUTSO. Totally nutso.

But I seriously do love it.




This petal quilt is one of my favorites because it's pretty much all Cotton & Steel pinks, including the backing--alllllll pink with gold dots! Set on a muslin background so it doesn't feel too pretentious.





In the last blog post I shared this pattern, which you probably don't really need a pattern for, but hey! I need to practice Adobe Illustrator so there you go. Bahahaha






 Another squares Patchwork quilt--but these were 10" BIG PAPA squares. This quilt sold.





Used up my entire BLUE Scrappy bin on this improvisational quilt:





The Popsicle Parade Quilt was professionally quilted by my friend Kathy Talley. This pattern is by Hello Melly Designs.   Yes, I got tired and stopped at 5 pops each row. :D 







I have a new pattern in the works for a September release--it will be FREE, YAY!  Not sure why the quilting bug bit me, but I'm flowing with it.

  2. LMAO with this post. You sound rather frantic! lol Love all the quilts, I need to have your energy! The colors in the quilts are fantasic, I am throwing out all my boring quilts and starting over with more color. I will donate them to someone who needs to be warm in winter, they are still good for that! The STASIA dress looks wonderful on you and I love the colors in it. Can I order one please, I don't have time to make it, but since you don't need to sleep ever, you can do it, yes? The girls are sure good helpers.
