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.

12 inch Irish Chain Quilt

At one of our monthly quilt guild meetings, one of our members showed several of her gorgeous Irish chain quilts. Some were antique quilts and some more recently made. I was so impressed and new I wanted to attempt to make an Irish chain quilt. I ordered Eleanor Burns "Irish Chain, Quilt in a Day" book.




Well, my intentions were high but I didn't think I was ready for Eleanor's pattern so I started a block using an Irish Chain block pattern that I saw online. Fabric that would be appropriate for St. Patty's Day were selected. 



I made several of the 4 patches for the above block.




I finished one block and my mind told me to quilt and bind it to hang on my 12 inch hanger for St. Patrick's Day. 



So why not, I needed a new 12 inch for March and now it is done. I may attempt a bigger Irish Chain quilt at another time.



I thought my light green was a little too light so I'll keep that in mind for my next Irish Chain. Thanks for stopping in - Judy.

January Quilting Projects

This month was a little slower quilting month for me. I finished a couple of projects to share with you today.


My February bench pillow is complete and on the pillow for February 1. The pattern "Be My Valentine" is by Kimberbell Designs. I did free motion quilting on the white background with some hearts and swirls and loops. 





This 12 inch quilt was a coloring book page I found online. Three fabrics cut into 4.5 squares were used for the background. I may not be completely done with this one. I think I need to add something else to it. What do you think?




I started cutting 2.5 in strips with  my Accuquilt Cutter for a another Valentine project. Not sure if I can get this project done by Valentine's Day but I'll give it a try. I have six greens, six pinks, and 6 reds. Now these strips have to be cut into 2.5 in squares.




Just so you don't have a bit of anxiety wondering what I'm going to sew, I'll give you a pic of one of the blocks.




My quilting guild in having an in-town retreat this weekend so I'm hoping to make some progress on this project. Thanks for stopping by - Judy.

December Quilting Projects

I finished a few quilting projects in December.


I found a panel online that was from the fabric line that I used to make a Christmas quilt for my daughter in 2017. I still had lots of jelly roll strips from the fabric and thought I could make some simple blocks to add around the panel.



Luckily, I had some yardage left from the original quilt project and used it for the backing. Now, there is just a small amount of fabric left from the collection.




Here's the original quilt I made in 2017.



Another December project was to use some extra fabric from another Christmas quilt. This time a few pillows were made and again my extra fabric went down a bit. YAY!




Here's that Christmas quilt and the piano border that I used. It was finished early in 2018. 









My final project for 2018, was a Christmas throw for myself. This one was a kit for a wall hanging but I decided to take the backing fabric and some gray fabric in my stash and add borders. I did have to purchase a metallic fabric for the binding. 



That's a wrap for my Quilting Projects in 2018, on to 2019! Thanks for stopping by - Judy.
