Blast from the Past: Quilts of March 2010

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 the quilts and other quilt related things I discovered in March of 2010.

This was a Schnibble I finished.  I ended up putting borders on it to make it bigger.  You can read about it HERE.
SchnibbleRoundAbout-Front
The pattern name is Roundabout and I did it Moda’s fabric line Oz.  I loved that fabric line.

Kelli used the same fabric to make this quilt…

OzQuilt-1
It’s a free pattern here on the blog.  You can find it HERE.

This was a small table topper I finished…
EmilysMemoriesQuilt
The pattern is Emily’s Memories, by Carol Hopkins Designs.  It’s just a small quilt measuring 18″ x 18″.

I made this little wool mat.
EggandI-center
We had it mounted to a black matting.  Karl and Kalissa were in a play at school called “The Egg and I”.  The cast of the play signed the black matting with a gold metallic pen and gave it to the director of their play as a gift.  It’s actually a  little candle mat pattern from Bareroots.

EggandI-FramedIt was a quick project and easy to do.

I did a blog post after I made this quilt on how to use applique stabilizer.  You can find it here.
FiveCent-How-1
The quilt was Five Cent Fairy Garden Candle Mat from Kim Deihl’s book Simple Blessings.  Can I tell you a secret? I haven’t used the applique stabilizer since.  I just don’t love doing applique.  I wish I did but I don’t.

I finished this too.  It is Cindy Lou Who Schnibble!

I had the twister ruler and was making twister quilts….I had wanted to take pictures of them but the sun wasn’t out.  Instead I had snapped these pictures.  Karl and Kalissa were so young!!

Gracie wanted her picture taken with the quilt.

This was fun quilt to make.  I used this ruler.  Find it HERE on Amazon.

If you haven’t made one of these quilts, I recommend them….so fun!!

Back then I had just discovered the quilt binding tool.  I love it.

TQM Products Ruler The Binding Tool

You can find it here on Amazon.  It changed the way I bound and I loved it.  It’s so easy to use!

I was a busy quilter in March of 2010…no big projects but lots and lots of little ones…fun ones too!!

I love these “blasts from the past”.  I forget all the quilts I’ve made and this is a great way for me to look back on them.

    This was fun to see! I made a twister quilt and kept the scraps to make a mini quilt. I ran across those scraps yesterday and thought I really need to get them cut and put together. Once I get the masks out to family I think I can squeeze in some time.

    I so enjoy the Blast from the past stories. I have made lots of twister quilts and they still are fun to do. It was nice to see the pictures of Kalissa and Karl, oh so fun.

    Thanks for the walk down memory lane, Jo! I have two Twister quilts in progress. A little one “twisted” and a big one still in “squares.” Hmm… Maybe those should go on my Spring quarter UFO Club list!
