Mystic Ocean Mermaid and Seahorse Quilt and An Update

I just finished up a colorful summer quilt. The digital panel by Mystic Ocean features a mermaid riding a huge seahorse.


The panel just needed borders, batting, and backing to get it ready for quilting.


Are you familiar with Edge to Edge Quilting? It is simply quilting in the hoop.



I used the bubble design in Extension Packet 6 of  Amelie Scott Designs. I love how a big bubble surrounds the mermaid's face. 



Craft/Sewing Room Update: I've been working on moving my sewing machine and my embroidery machine upstairs to my craft room. 



It has been a huge task. I've been selling most of my scrapbooking paper and lots of supplies to make room for my fabric stash. The storage containers below held lots of scrapbooking paper in the past. Most of the paper has now been sold and the containers are housing fabric. 


Sewing and quilting have taken over scrapbooking the past few years for me so I am happy to transform the room. My husband mounted a pegboard to hang rulers, etc.



I'm working on a small pressing station on top of a cart. We used a piece of the leftover pegboard on top of the cart and plan to add a pressing cloth. I've got a small iron and "Terial Magic" ready to use. 



I have lots still to do and more crafting items to sell but I'm happy with my progress. Thanks for stopping by - Judy.

Finishing Up a Patriotic Throw and A Class

I've been trying to finish up a throw for my daughter's birthday. I'm always drawn to patriotic pieces and thought this would be perfect on the back of her white couch. 



The panel is " Colors of Freedom" by Wilmington Prints. 



Wanting the panel larger for a throw, I added 15.5 blocks to the sides of the panel.



The repeating stripe from the fabric line made a quick wide border for the top and bottom of the quilt.


I had the top all pieced in time for her birthday on the 15th but didn't have it quilted. (Bad when you have to give a gift that isn't finished and need to bring it back home to finish it up).

I took a class at Calico Country in Paducah, KY, called "Edge to Edge Quilting on Your Embroidery Machine where you are quilting in the hoop. It was a fun class and I wanted to use this technique on this quilt.





The book is by Amelie Scott Designs and has several expansion packs. 


Now that the quilting is done, I'm finishing up the binding today and should gift it again tomorrow. 


Thanks for stopping by - Judy.

Stonehenge Update

I've been sewing almost daily trying to finish the friendship star blocks to add to the Stonehenge panel. The quilt will be a gift for my grandson for his August birthday.




The star blocks are finished then I decided to order another fabric from this line to make the corner blocks. Here's the fabric I ordered.




I have some scraps from the fabric used for the friendship blocks plus the new fabric. I'm looking for suggestions for the corner blocks; what do you think would work for these corners? The block will be about 9 inches.

Let me know - Judy.

Stonehenge Panel and Friendship Stars

I started working on a new throw this week. The Stonehenge Solstice Panel by Linda Ludovico for Northcott caught my eye because my grandson was so impressed with Stonehenge when his family visited there last summer.





The throw will be a birthday gift for my youngest grandson for his summer birthday.

I decided to make Friendship Star blocks to add to the quilt. The fabric is from the Stonehenge Solstice collection.



I finished two blocks yesterday and laid out the third block (above) to start on today. 







Thanks for stopping by - Judy.

April Quilting Projects

I've been working on a birthday quilt for my grandson. His birthday isn't until September but I wanted to finish the quilt and enter it in our local Art Hop here in Murray.


The panel is by Robert Kaufman, "Starry Night".


I added the yellow border then pieced Snail Trail blocks to surround the panel and border. Time was short, so I quilted it myself using free motion on the panel.


My 12 inch quilt project for May is now complete. This one features a flower pot and lots of colorful spring flowers and a butterfly.




I stayed up late last night and finished quilting and adding the binding.



Thanks for stopping by to see my April projects - Judy.

Medallion Mystery Quilt - progress

Months ago, I started the Medallion Mystery Quilt but didn't keep working on it. A couple days ago, I decided to start working on it again. I have made some progress that I'll share with you.










It's not done but I'll keep working - Judy.
