Blast from the Past: Quilts of July 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 July of 2010.

I was busy working on Schnibble patterns.  Schnibbles were quilts made from charm packs that Carrie Nelson of Miss Rosie’s Quilt Company designed.  This one was Winter White.

I made the quilt from leftovers from a quilt I made for the Fireman’s Benefit.  I gifted it on to my nephew’s little one.  You can read more about it HERE.

I was busy making trivets…

Coasters
I got the idea from this book…It’s a Wrap.  You can find it HERE on Amazon.  I loved making these and still have trivets I’ve made in my kitchen hot pad drawer and use them regularly.  They are great for a simple gift.  I never got in to making bowls….

I had even gone on made this rug using the same technique…

…and got crafter making this style of trivet with a place for it to hang….

These were so fun to make.

On the quilting front, I was trying something new….mitered corners.

Mitered corners is something I avoid but am not scared to do at this point.  I’ve done them often enough and have been successful at it.  I think I’d still have to watch a video to remind me how to do it again though.

I put links to the video I watch and you can read about my experience doing them HERE.

I finished this quilt…

For those with inquiring minds….the quilt pattern is Lilypads from Atkinson Designs.  You can find it in the Time Out Quilts book.

You can read more about the quilt HERE.  I believe I might have gifted this to my niece as a wedding present but I’m not sure.

My next quilty project:  I made this quilt top as a quilt along.  I was big into quilt alongs at the time.  I don’t remember this quilt at all.  Not even a drop.

Isn’t that crazy….You can read more about it HERE.  The only reason I know I made it is I can recognize that it was my porch at the time…and that there’s a blog post that said I made it.

My next quilt was Miss Rosies Schnibble pattern, Lincoln.  Schnibble patterns are typically about 31″ x 31″.  I had four “Nautical” charm packs from Minick and Simpson…these were the first charm packs I ever bought.  They were sitting there waiting for inspiration and Lincoln was just what they needed.  I decided since I had four charm packs, I would just make it four times as big.

I ended up needing more fabric than that..the quilt actually has more of a story to it.  You can read about that HERE.

I have no idea who I gifted this to.  I’m assuming I gifted it as I don’t have it here anymore.  That is a quilt I love though.  I just might have to make that again.

It’s so fun to look back at what I was trying and doing.  My biggest regret about it all is not saying who I gifted things to and that my camera wasn’t better.  At the time I just had a Kodak Easy Share.  Thankfully nowadays I have a much better camera and I take LOTS more photos of my quilts.

That my friends was a glimpse of what I was working in July of 2010.

    I admire you keeping track of what you did 10 years ago – I have no idea what I was making!
