Quilt Quazy Queens ~ My Day!

One Fat 8th Bundle ~ Two Quilts
Doubling the Challenge

My quilt craziest idea yet.
Just in time for the

Quilt Qwazy Queens Blog Hop

This is one of my favorite blog hops of the year,

I get to celebrate my quilt crazy ... :-)

My newest, quaziest quilt project is for the

Trinket SAL @ Alison Glass

Not only am I sewing the 40 Foundation 4.5" pieced Trinket blocks,
one per day, Monday through Friday ...

I am sewing one of her older FPP patterns, Ventana.
Did I mention that I have not foundation paper pieced
in a few years?

The good news is that this is actually a stash quilt.
I have only bought some additional background yardage
because I needed one yard more of what I had already.

I really want to rise to this personal  challenge.

Sew far; sew good.

Also to celebrate my quilt qwaziness
I decided to show,
in all their UFO glory ... my Top 3 
of my crazier quilty ideas ... 


Patchwork of the Crosses EPP Blocks ~ Score 16 to 3

This should be called a WIP
as I am actually working on it ... :-) 


365 Blocks in 365 Days ~ "Good Karma" ...
 What Was I thinking?

77 of 365 blocks done ... not good.

I am not currently working on this ...  :(

Hmmmm ... I love those fabrics.
I have to do something about this.


The Scraps, Ma'am, Nothing But The Scraps

This is a 6.5" Postage Stamp Block
made with Thirty-Six 1.5" squares
... 'nuff said 

42 blocks done.
Many pairs sewn as leaders and enders,
waiting to be sewn into blocks.
Good ... but a long way to go for a quilt. 

Every Year I seam to start a Rainbow Scrap Challenge Quilt
an every year I start another UFO.
My scraps still overfloweth  ... with love  <3 

I also want to show my craziest finished quilt.

It has covered an entire wall in my sewing room since I set it up in 2012.
Before that, it was on my bed for 2 years.

My Sisterhood of Quilters Quilt

This is an oversized queen quilt that I started as a mystery quilt
at Quilt Retreat in Texas in 2009,
where I went to meet a group of online quilty friends.
Going to this retreat was my first airport adventure and I went with
a friend from CT who drove to NH to fly out of the smaller
Manchester Airport because I did not feel ready to brave the
International airports in Boston and CT.
We flew home in a snow storm on one of the last planes to land
at that airport that night.

Crazy?  Yes!
Quilt Crazy Fun!

Here is the story of the making of this quilt.

The panel sections in the custom border are signed by my friends at the retreat.

It took a year to finish this quilt for a
Challenge in March 2010

I used up leftover fabrics cut into small squares and HSTs and such
to set the panel pieces and create the custom borders. 
It was my bed quilt for over two years before I moved it to my sewing room.

Without a doubt this quilt and it's making is my craziest
Quilt Quazy Queen adventure.

It warms my walls and warms my heart every time I see it.

Quilting Tangent said...

Interesting seeing your projects.

JANET said...

Love your quilt on the wall. It is beautiful! Is there a pattern for it? ndfromsd

Tami Von Zalez said...

I had to give up on my postage stamp quilt. I could never remember to do my leaders and enders and my scrap pile just kept growing BIGGER. I finally threw all the scraps in a huge bag and am thrifting it back. I have had scads of new fabric come my way so my "squirrel" attention is now elsewhere.

sam said...

Amazing projects. You are one busy lady. I have started the Trinkets quilt too. Alison Glass has the most gorgeous fabrics.

tac73 said...

What fun diversity!

ShirleyC said...

You are one busy lady! I'd never have to patience to make one postage stamp block let alone a whole quilt! LOL

Rosemary said...

Oh my ... I love what you finished. I just finished a quilt I cut out in 2013. Looked at the itty bitty pcs and ... wait! what? where do they go? where do I start. BUT it's done and just waiting for quilting. What a great feeling!!

Susan said...

I really like your quilt. My brother and I flew back to MI from CA a few years ago. We were rerouted through Dallas/Fort Worth as we couldn't land in Chicago due to the snow. Ours was the last flight to get in to our local airport. We did skid on the runway when landing, but everything was okay.

wendy said...

Wonderful projects and a very beautiful quilt! I don't think I know of any quilter who doesn't have a UFO lurking somewhere.

Sharon Aurora said...

Oh I love your wall quilt. That looks like it took a lot of time and patience. It's beautiful.

GranChris said...

How fun. I love using scraps.

Carol Andrews said...

Wow! Such incredible quilty goodness. I like be the crazy scrappy goodness but your Sisterhood of Quilters Quilt is breathtaking. What a wonderful way to remember a great retreat and the people there.

Farm Quilter said...

What a fun quilt!! Love it!

BarefootThunder said...

Wonderful wall quilt. I almost joined in on trinket, but decided I couldn't commit to a block every day, not with everything else I have in the works.

Joy from Days Filled With Joy said...

That's a lot of quilt qwazy happening!! Love all your pretty projects, and I admire you doing a block a day! xx

Sharon said...

What a busy lady you are! Have fun with your scraps, and thanks for sharing your projects.

I admire your perseverance with all the tiny blocks. I don't have the patience....or the skill. :) Thanks for sharing.

Jollygirl said...

I am overwhelmed by all your projects, but they are lovely.

Melva said...

I have considered the 365 day challenge. And then I tried to keep up with a 30 day block challenge in December. Never mind... I'll leave that one alone! lol.

Stitchin At Home said...

So many wonderful projects!

Kathleen said...

You do have quite a list of UFO’s. I thought my 3 hand piecing projects were insane, but I think you beat me!

Rhonda Best said...

Great quilt and wonderful story. So many memories for you, brought back and enjoyed again when you look at it. Thanks for sharing.

Brenda @ Songbird Designs said...
