SewHappy, your quilt is awesome! Are those appliqued or pieced or quilted circles sewn together? I can't find anything about that pattern online. Inquiring minds...

That double wedding ring is gorgeous. And it's an optical tricker! As I glance at it I see red around each ring, but it's just the binding and the 'star' connectors that are red. Such a pretty quilt!!!!!

What a beautiful wedding quilt you made for your son & new bride. It is absolutely gorgeous & I know they will love it all the days of their lives. It would have taken me a lifetime to make something like that. TFS

I turn 65 in August. What would I like for a present? I do believe in giving myself gifts for big celebrations. I've wanted to make Shakespeare in the Park for my king size bed for several years. I decided this would be my special gift and that I'd make it in July. Today I finished the last blocks and I'm sewing the blocks into rows. My stars have the points but I've lost some on the Snail's Trails. (I measured two of the triangles wrong when cutting them out.) But this is my quilt and I love the variety of scraps. No one to judge it so it'll be okay. I want to get it set together tomorrow so I can start quilting it. Of course, I don't have a backing fabric yet. Minor detail! It'll look much better after I pin the rows together and get them stitched. It's much too large for my design wall.

I really like your quilt!! Where would I find that pattern? I'm working on cutting up my scraps into useable sizes and I was going to do a Snails Trail out of flannels. This is a much more interesting design than just snails trail.

Great job and Happy Birthday next month!!


Keep calm and carry on

Sew Happy - Gorgeous. What a wonderful quilt and I know they will love it.

EvelynB - That one is on my list as well. I love your colors and I can't wait to see it finished. Fabulous! I can't believe how quickly you're getting it done.

I have started the very definition of insanity - Bonnie Hunter's Ocean Waves quilt. There are more HST than I care to count. But I'll plug along one at a time. Smile



There are seven days in a week and Someday isn't one of them.

Love the scrappy purple hues!

Eta: At first glance I thought the Wedding Ring quilt was from a Cheryl Phillips where you make the circle, then sew the circles together with straight lines. You didn't go the "easy" route, did you? Big Grin Beautiful

Patty, great job on your son's wedding quilt!

Evelyn, you have really been a busy beaver with those blocks! How will you do the border?

My quilt is from Judy Martin's book The Creative Patterns. I bought the book but after seeing another quilt like this one I changed the stars and made it king size. Since it's 121" square I'm not going to make a border. I'm working on setting triangles and sewing the rows together. I've got it about 1/3 done. I oversized the setting triangles so I can trim it up later. I need to get some backing fabric.

Here's a similar design I saw online. Looks like a great way to use some orphan blocks. The consistent strong colors are in the Snail's Trails. I have a set of blocks I'd love to use this way.

Look how gorgeous this very scrappy version is. Looks like most fabrics would work. Found online...NOT my quilt.

How fun! Wish I had a little girl to sew for. For years our Salvation Army bought dolls and volunteers sewed for them. I crocheted and sewed hundreds of outfits. Loved it so much! Did you also make the cute leopard?

Chris,
ER is no fun and neither is hospital sitting. I hope DH is improving.

We got the leopard at the local zoo. She got to stuff it herself. I didn't make it but have made critters before. They are fun to make. May have to dig those patterns out. I used a pattern for Cabbage Patch doll clothes for these two outfits. She has chosen more fabric for another outfit.

You're a good grandma, Karen. This is how great memories are made. Her friends will be so jealous. You may get wrangled into making them some clothes too.

Time for bed. I got the rows sewn together. In fact three rows got to be sewn twice. I got the joy of ripping them out after seeing blocks turned around. Going shopping for backing tomorrow. Yeah!

Congratulations to EvelynB and SewHappy on such gorgeous tops. I wish I had the stamina to work on such beauties. Well done and I have to say that I do love that scrappy version too Evelyn!

thank you Evelyn for posting all the pictures. I sure like that quilt pattern. Yours looks great all sewn together also.

Are the blocks 12"?

Yes, the blocks are 12". The small stars are 6" so it all fits together nicely and any star would work.

Thanks Evelyn, I think I can figure it out without the pattern. I'll make a block here and there and maybe someday I'll have a finished quilt.

You're right, Patti. The book is great but I used EQ7 to draw the blocks. The diagonal setting and rotating the Snail's Trails is the key. I didn't use my book since I had EQ. I just looked at examples and chose my own stars.

This is what I have been working on all last week. 2 doll quilts and 2 reuseable (green) bags. I think that making doll quilts is a great way to try out patterns to see if I want to make up a bigger quilt from it. The bags is a great way to use up some of my spare blocks.

Handie Ann,
Love those bags! So gorgeous and clever. Let's the world know you're a quilter. Those quilts are too beautiful to be given to a child. They're works of art to display.

I have to go look at all the completed projects but I made a skirt from a 2 metre piece of batik directly from Bali. You add the knit to the waist to make it pull on and it's maxi, and has a side slit. It's a Simplicity pattern.
