I’m doing a little series of posts that feature old blog posts. I have been going back and looking at them. It’s been fun. I started blogging in June of 2009…WOW. Over ten years. I’m so glad I’ve kept the blog as a diary of sorts…today I’m telling you about projects I finished in June of 2011.
My yo-yo table runner was in terrible shape. I made this back in the 90’s. By 2011 it needed a little updo. I had to take a yo-yo apart to get the size and remake several of the yo-yos.
This had been my travel project for a couple years in the 90s. I had a great time making it and if I weren’t cross stitching, I’d be tempted to make another, but alas, cross stitching takes up my couch, evening, and travel time now.
I was having trouble with my Pfaff Grand Quilter. You can read about it HERE.
Kelli was at the machine and was doing the machine quilting on her project. I can’t remember the name but it was a Miss Rosies Quilt Company project. It’s the cover quilt in this book. You can find it HERE.
Kelli made a lot of Miss Rosie quilts before we started designing quilts together. I’d love to make this one.
I was heading on the down hill slide of finishing up Kalissa’s Crumb quilt. You can see… that I had here name done at this point.
Kelli and I were working on Moda Bake Shop projects. This stack of fabric came in.
I was working on this quilt…another Moda Bake Shop project. This was from the Curio line by Basic Grey. This turned out to be a very popular project on Moda Bake Shop.
By following THIS LINK you can see the quilt and get the free instructions.
I finished a quilt…
I had these blocks around for over seven years. They are made with the first Civil War print fabric I ever bought. The pattern is simply called Pinwheels. It is from Pat Speth and Charlene Thode’s book, Nickel Quilts. I really enjoyed the quilts in this book and am glad to have it in my library. The premise of the book is to make all your quilts from 5″ charm squares.
The blocks for this quilt were created when I made a different quilt. It was so fun as I made two quilts at once. This quilt was gifted some time ago.
I was on the road and visiting Country Threads Quilt shop which has since closed. It was by far my favorite quilt shop EVER!
I wish I could go back to their punchneedle section and buy patterns. HERE is a Punchneedle tour of Country Threads.
I have made two of the quilts in the photo above. I’d love to make the other one.
When I was there that day I bought the pattern for the quilt below. I still haven’t make it…I even have the specific blue fabric.
I keep telling myself someday…it might just happen.
I’d love to know how many pincushions Mary sold. She made them and saved the money from sales to buy her piano. I love that story. It just goes to prove that little by little if we save, we can afford more anything!!
This was a completed Moda Bake Shop project. Our Beagle Gracie was on the furniture. It was new and I wanted to protect it. I ended up designing this…
It uses one jelly roll. You can get the free pattern HERE.
I was working on tackling my flimsy pile. I have these three and was busy putting together backings for them.
My quilt machine was busy. This was a T-shirt quilt Kayla was making and it was on the machine. I don’t remember who she was making it for.
In June of 2011 I didn’t finish a lot of quilts but I sure was busy doing quilting related things. I just love looking back and seeing what I was up to.
