DWM and April New FO

H2H quilt #2

 Oh goodness, Aprils needle was on fire this weekend.    It was around 8PM Friday evening when there was a switched flipped and suddenly I was back at 100%.  So I  finished quilting this, H2H quilt number 2, The tutorial can be found at  Tutorial is from Shiner's View - Tutorial for Jenna.

H2H quilt #3 - Kitty Korner
And then when I was done with that, I loaded this up, H2H quilt #3. Oh and look at me, doing a pantograph :)  It's called cloud 9 and most of the clouds are actually round and not all boxy.  Finished this up early on Sat.  Kitty Korner EQ7 file is available on the EQ7 and Tutorials tab.

H2H #4 - Venetian Dream
Then finished getting this top together, it just needed the sashing and the borders.  With only 12 blocks, it went pretty quick.  This is H2H #4 - the last one :)  Venetian Dream is in Fons and Porters magazine  - hmfall 2009

QOV #1

Then I loaded one of the 2 QOV quilts that arrived on Thursday.  Judy sent two of her babies to be quilted for QOV.  She's from The Heart of Ohio Quilters' Guild. located in Licking County, just east of Columbus.  I didn't have any patriot pantographs when I started this one so I made a stencil.  Yep that's right see that star, it's a stencil I made.  Not sure sure I'll make another but it's good to know as a last resort, I can.  I got all fancy and used 2 threads.  I used an off white and a dark blue.  If you look at both of the stars above, you'll see that the light colored block looks like blue thread, the dark color block looks like off white - crazy huh?  I love this and will certainly do it again.
QOV#2



And finally the last of Judy's babies.  This is QOV #2 - Guess what came in the mail on Saturday afternoon - yes the patriot pantographs.  I used "stars and bars"  oh this was such an easy one, I think I finished in like 4 hours. Felt kinda bad, like I should have taken longer, but I think it's really cute :)  And hey they wanted to do the trimming and the binding so I only had to do the fun stuff, the quilting - I almost felt guilty :)


Whew, I'm tired now and April is exhausted :)

  6. Love your quilts but the squares is really stunning. Straight line quilting makes me scared. You did a great job on all of the quilts. Sometimes I am finding that less is really more in quilts. But I do feel guilty sometimes when I think it should have been longer or harder than it was, :)

  14. the mojo returned big time! Wow did you ever have a productive end of the month. I love the quilting you've done on all the quilts, but especially love the combination of diagonal and vertical on your H2H #2 - just lovely! Great work creating your own stencil for the stars, too. I love all the grey in the H2H quilts - so very inspiring!

  23. Wow, I especially love the first two! What fabulous layouts!

    Also, would you mind sharing what pattern (if any) you used for the owl quilt in your header? My sister is a huge owl fan, and these would make ADORABLE individual wall hangings. :)
