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 ... 

#1 


Patchwork of the Crosses EPP Blocks ~ Score 16 to 3

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


#2 

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

Score:
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.


#3 


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 

Score;
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.

  14. 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.

  18. 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.
