I wasn't going to make another - modern? non traditional? - mini but kept looking at the one I showed last week and thinking it might have been better with brighter colors. So made this one. Similar style but brighter. I named this one "Squoze". Thought the center looked sort of like a normal quilt that someone grabbed and squeezed...............
Now back to working on another "same 'ol".
Helping to fight Alzheimer's one little quilt at a time. AAQI

Love it Bozie! I think you've got the hang of modern quilts too!
I spent last weekend working on a chemo/comfort quilt. Hope to start quilting it soon.
I did want to share the results of the donation of my Scraps to Treasures quilt. It was donated for a fundraising raffle for a girl at work who lost her DH to brain cancer last month (with 2 kids at home & on the verge of losing her house). They sold raffle tickets for my quilt and a double sided "Ravens" fleece throw & made over $1000!
This is my favorite thread each week. Always fun to see what others are doing.
My DD travels for work, and showed me this little travel item from Pinterest. Its just a wash cloth folded up, with stitching to make little pockets. It was shown with toothpaste and toothbrushes inserted, but I'm sure you could slip in other things. I've made one for each my DD and DIL, as well as one for me.
Bozie: That's terrific! Jean: Love them. That's going to be a knock-out quilt. Elsie: That's so clever. DD sent me via her phone a picture of the "evan" quilt I made on display in the baby room. He's a little over due! All I knew was SAGE GREEN and I'm tickled to see the border, from JoAnn's, coordinates with the crib set she had picked out!This message has been edited.

We have quite a windstorm here now. It's chevrons. Got the idea from one of the Missouri Quilts on Youtube videos. A long time ago, the Cranston Print Works store in Cranston RI had a class on using That Patchwork Place's Bias Square. You make two wof strips wider that than the finished square desired. This time it was 4.5 inches. Sew them together lengthwise. Then you turn the bias square (mine's 8") on point. Line up the line on the ruler (its center) with the seam you made of light and dark strips. Cut around the point of the ruler. Then reposition ruler on the bottom and cut the other angle and the block is made!
This is a robe I made my son. He is a hunter and when I made the kids some robes a couple of years ago, he made the comment that if he got one he wanted deer on it. That isn't the easiest to find in fleece around here.This message has been edited. Last edited by: MountainLaurel,
What I've done recently. I love doing these circular pot holders; so easy. Made the machine cover for my friend; it's for another machine, but had to try it out on mine. I think it will fit a little better on hers. Made myself a key chain.
I finally got the "Easy Striped Tablerunner"? done this week. I really needed Sue with her Left brain to help me, I need to finish it completely by Tues. for my son for Christmas, he wanted it reversible and Sue said she had a really neat new pattern that we should try for the back, so I'm waiting for her to come over tomorrow and show me what she found.This message has been edited.

● ● ● Thank you ladies, but just to clarify, both blocks are for the same quilt. There are only ten t-shirts, so I have a lot of filling to do. It's for the son of the lady who had ordered the Relay 4 Life Raffle Quilt. He requested black & whites with red. So, I'm really enjoying this one.
Angela, great news on the donations. That's a LOT of moola.
Life without quilting is not an option! • • • • • MY Photos • • • • • • ENJOY!
Storm Draco dashed our plans of flying home on Thursday. When we drove back from the airport, my husband put in a few hours at work and I went to 'work' too... it was that or eat out of frustration!!! I cut out lots of Doggie Jackets for my girlfriend's pet rescue organization: Alternative Pet Rescue in Coeur d'Alene, Idaho.
Also made Notebook Covers for gifts - pictures are on AngelaC's Friday Night PJ Party Notebook Covers thread!
Made this throw and pillow for my daughter for christmas. Bought this material 2 yrs ago on clearance. Now I wish I would of bought more of it. I hope she likes it. I love the baby blue flannel on the back, wish I would of thought of that for the pillow too. My quilting isn't the best but I am still in the learning process.
Here are the last set of baby blankets I made. Just needed 1 but since I had the binding, went ahead and made two so I have one done for whatever pops up. Thought I had enough bindings to finally finish all the panels I had left but was 1 short or would have done that one too.
Then there were the two receiving blankets and the throw for mom, that went together as a gift to someone in one of the Yahoo groups I am in... Chris
