Projects I worked on in 2012

I did it. I made a mosaic at Big Huge Labs via Flickr Toys. These are the projects I have worked on off and on throughout the year…and previous years for that matter.

The Spiderweb quilt top was finished in the last few months. I love this quilt so much. It is a lot of fun to work on it. I have the backing fabric already and want to make a row of spiderwebs to add to the back. I was thinking of doing it in 3 different sizes and even drafted the templates. We’ll see what happens.

The Trip Around the World quilt I would have liked to have finished for my mom for Christmas. I threw my back out on the  19th and that put a slow down on everything in my life. I have all the pieces cut and ready to finish but still am setting in the blocks by hand. It’s coming along. I am thinking of flannel for the back so she can have it as a lap quilt in her lounge chair.

The Grandmother’s Flower Garden block. I picked these pieces up at the thrift store. I have never really  paper pieced and hand sewn pieces together so this was a first for me. I have a quilt that needs repair but the hexagon size is not the same. I did borrow a ruler from Sharyn in my quilt group and will work with it.

The Scrappy Bargello is hanging in my laundry room and I cut pieces for it as I work on other projects. I took it outside this summer for a photo shoot and made some progress on it. It was so fun to see it outside in the day light.

The Nine-Patch String piece is our Tuesday Quilters project for 2012. I love how it is coming together.

The Musical Ninepatch is for my niece Leah. I need to sew the sides on the front. I am almost done with the pieces back. If I set aside a few days I would have the two sides done.

The Sunflower quilt is my design and my pride and joy. I started this as a Crazy Quilt Revisited project with Jude Hill. I am alternating crazy quilt blocks with 49 patches.

Rosie the Robot is part of the Add A Border Group and was so fun to do.

String Pieced diamonds was started back in the 70s. I do a diamond here and there. This will be a life long project. I have more diamonds to sew together but other projects always come first.

Coin quilt/Calendar quilt uses up itty bitty pieces. I will blog more about this in a separate post. It will be a journal of quilts projects and fabrics when it is finished.

Ileene’s heart quilt was started this year. She and I work on it together. One of these days we will get it finished.

The Ragged Egg quilt made some progress this year. The blocks were finished and this year I sewed on the sashing strips. I want to put a scalloped border around this one. I most likely will not pick it up again until it gets closer to Easter.

Red and Blue quilt is something I have wanted to do for a while and this year I just got it started. Just Do It. I will continue when the mood hits me.

Sunflower quilt. This block had the petals pinned to it for years. I took some time this year to sew the petals on and get the pins off the thing. I LOOOOVVVVEEEEEEE how it turned out.

Low Volume quilt was started this year. I like the idea of having all soft colors.

Christmas Star is a table runner for my sister in Chicago. I am almost done. Almost! I need to find my metallic thread. If I know where is was it would be done (Organization)

Mary Ann’s Triple Irish Chain did not make it into this collage. I have worked on it off and on this year. It is a constant work in progress because I keep cutting 1 1/2 inch

strips and blocks as I work on other projects.

It was so fun to come home yesterday to a package in the mail from Anna!     

I had to chuckle at the Duck Tape above on the envelope!    

There was a large sum of fabric for my sunflower quilt and enough strips for the border    

of the Spiderweb quilt and I hope to get some of these scraps in my diamond string quilt and the calendar quilt I am making. The above blocks are the first I have received.       

    

I like how these line up so I can see how they might look all together    

This picture was loaded on Flickr March 26 2010 I can’t wait until I receive it so I can add the blocks to the top!

You can also see the past two month fabric selections onA SpiderBee group blog.

This is a Bee with 12 members. Each has taken one month and gets to select their own color choices. Mine is EARTH tones…you can chose whether it looks more like Spring or Autumn.
