Mystery Quilt Choices

I have been having a grand time making a mystery quilt for the MAQ Quilt Camp this July.

I have 4 different choices in the design of the top. UGH. I cannot decide which one to do. So I will just give it a couple of days and see what you all think.

This will be given to a military person after camp.

It is laying on top of the Irish Chain I did about 4 years ago. It was quilted by a very talented long arm quilter long before I had my HQ. I LOVE it.

Last Quilt of April

Here is the last quilt I finished for this month. I am now going to put some tops I got from my guild on my HQ and get them done. The great part about that IS---I just pull them off and hand them back. Someone else will do the binding.

I am working on a small project for myself right now. It is a paper pieced Log Cabin Star pattern I bought while at the Lancaster Show. I am doing it in blue and yellow.

Once again---I forget what pattern this is.

And Next please

This is another soldier quilt using the square in square pattern that works up so quickly. It is a little dark for my tastes but used up more smaller cuts of fabric.

Next in line

I surely will have a good amount of quilts for our wounded military. Here is the next one I made. I cannot remember the name of the pattern---but it is very scrappy. I think it was made out of fat quarters and then cut up.

Another one

I was more productive sewing than picture taking----so here is one more.

This pattern uses up smaller pieces of fabric quite efficiently. Scraps quilting is not my favorite but I love this pattern.

Once again, I add the eagles fabric to make it longer.

More April quilts

I had purchased the Turning Twenty Pattern quite some time ago and decided to try one of those. 20 Fat Quarters would make it way too big so I used just 12. I am slowly working my way through a large amount of donated Fat Quarters from online friends. This pattern uses them up quickly.

I added the eagles at the top and bottom to make this a nice long quilt. Thanks Barbara for that wonderful eagle fabric.

April Push

I had some time off from my part time job so I really was able to get productive. I do not remember the name of this pattern as I find so many on the internet. I did not put the sections together right but with a scrappy quilt it really does not matter.

If I had done it right, it would have formed a secondary pattern. Finished is better than perfect. I was happy to use up smaller bits of fabric.

I believe this pattern is called Tradewinds.

Fabric from California and North Carolina

I am part of a wonderful group of ladies on an internet site. We chat daily about all sorts of things. I was sent this fabric and decided to just combine them. I did not want to cut up the middle section as it was too beautiful. So this turned out to be a quick and easy quilt. I have enough of the stripped to use it with a BIG block I made and then could not figure out what to do with it.

Thanks Debbie and Janet. This quilt will be donated for a wounded member of our military.
