Craftsy Block of the Month 2014 – Color Theory

I signed up for the Color Theory class on Craftsy and decided it was time to actually pull some fabrics and get started on making the quilt detailed in this class.

I pulled batiks that I thought would go well in this project.

I can’t say that I am too thrilled with the blue fabric choices I sewed into strata for the first 6 longish blocks, but I’m thinking the color choices will be allright once the warmer colors are added to the quilt.

Winged Square Block – Christmas Quilt

I have never made a Christmas quilt and want to make something that is quick and easy.  I have tons and tons of green fabric (seems like most of my stash is green!), and I have plenty of white and a few reds.  This block from Victoria of Bumblebeans seems like it may be the perfect choice for my first Christmas quilt.

Wednesday Progress – Backing Done & Quilting Begins

I pieced the backing for this baby quilt.  I like all of the color and I’m sure my granddaughter will be mesmerized by it.

Now the quilt is on the frame and I’m halfway done quilting it.

Friday Finish

Just finished this quilt top today – with all of its color, I don’t have a suitable fabric for the back, so I will begin piecing a back with an assortment of fabrics that were used on the front.

Those little blocks on the left are some of my split nine patch blocks that I am making as a leader and ender challenge on Bonnie Hunter’s blog.  I’m using 3″ strips for the squares and half square triangles.  I have a total of 26 blocks done, so I figure I’m a quarter of the way there!
