I have a veeeeerrrrryyyyy llooonnnnnngggggg list of quilts that I want to make - okay now, tell the truth, you do too!!!!! LOL!!!!! So, for 2015' I purposed to piece " a block a day for the year". 365 blocks goes a long way toward making a quilt or two, thus, making some quilts on my list. Now we all know that you don't make it to the sewing room every day, but some days you get in an hour or two, right?! So technically, I didn't piece every day, but I did stitch up 524 blocks in 2015!
Some of the blocks have been assembled, quilted and gifted, but here is a sampling of what I have in various stages of completion.
Time Warp Stars - you know me and star blocks! There are more than 100 I this stack and I have a few more to complete.
This is a stack of chunky churn dash blocks that are from 30's repro fabrics that were gifted to me from my oldest daughter. She thinks she will inherit the quilt some day!!! LOL ( she will!!!).
This stack is scrappy nine patches. An elderly friend passed away this past year and her daughter gifted two shoe boxes of scraps to me. Alice had already assembled a couple of nine patch blocks and had several 2 1/2 inch squares cut, so to honor here, I made up the rest into the same. There are 72 blocks and I only had to add a square or two to finish.
This quilt is a queen size and is about 1/4 quilted. I made these Colorado blocks from a collection of Judie Rothermel's in tans and blues. For some reason they remind me of my dad who passed away 25 years ago. He would have loved this one. Actually, he would have loved any thing I did! He was my hero and biggest fan. Miss him sometimes.
I will continue this theme tomorrow. I have several other photos, but since this is my first iPad post, I'm hoping it goes better than it did yesterday when I lost all my post!
Hope this finds each and everyone of you enjoying a new year of happiness and productivity!
