DWM 3/18 - can we have one more day for the weekend, please??

What a great quilting in weekend.  I finished up the Irish Chain, my oldest UFO ever by a very very long shot, over 10 years old. But that baby is done!!  I finished one of the plaid obsessions.  I have all the string ready for the second one and working on the sashing and nine patches.
Plaid Obession #1
Then I got distracted by Pinterest where I was so inspired by this  beauty.  I say this and unfortunately it's not linked to anyone's blog or web site.  I tried tracing back to see where it came from, but wsn't really sure I hit the right place. 
quilter unknown but would love to know who is quilting this so wonderfully
As I looked closer I thought, wait a minute, I have those blocks!!  30 of them from a block swap.  So guess what I did, yep it's together and on the frame now :)  I don't know if I'll be able to make mine as gorgeous as that one but I'm gonna try. Wish I knew who did the quilting on that one, I'd love to drop them a note and get pinterest linked to the right person

30s Repo - needs a name
Boy I tried turning off the word verification but the spam is just awful, had to turn it back on.

  2. Can't wait to see your 30's block swap quilted. And I think I spied my block in your collection! My block swap quilt is in the line up to be quilted.

  5. I wonder why you are getting so much spam. However, I know that you will do a great job on your quilt, you always do. For St. Pat's day I didn't have to wear green, I just had to check out your quilting and I turned green with envy. ;-)

  6. OMG! You have been busy. I'm with you, one more day in the weekend would be great......LOL.
    I love both of your quilts and good for you getting those UFOs together. I wish I had that kind of inspiration these days...maybe after the garden is all in I'll get there.
    Take care and have a great week!!

  7. Lovely quilts! I love the plaid ones, and that setting. The quilting is awesome, and I have no doubt you can match it or improve on it. Thanks for the eye candy.

  8. Thanks for featuring that quilt with the beautiful quilting. It is stunning. It makes you wonder if it was computer done or by hand. I really like the quilting design which so changed the look of the finished top. Plaid obsession is great also. Is your second one going to be done in plaids also? Looks like you had some really productive quilting time over the last week.

    I am getting a ton of spam also but I hate the security business. But, every once in a while something stupid gets through so I may have to turn this on too. Bummer.

  9. Sue, that beautiful 30's print quilt was quilted by an APQS forum member. Sheri Butler. Here's a link to the post she shared at the APQS forum. It IS a beauty!

  11. Bonnie- Thanks for the quilter ID! And Sue...Great about "Crossing Paths" for your great interpretation? Your paths crossed in Pinterest where you found the inspiration piece, the blocks intersect with the cross that forms, and all of our paths cross every week here on DWM...

  14. That Plaid Possessions looks like it was planned. So beautiful - I'm going to start making string blocks for it. Your 30s quilt top is going to be great, too!

  15. Okay, now I'm going to have to put that plaid quilt on my list of "to do's". That turned out great. Glad you remembered those blocks. Hope it turns out just like you want.

  16. Looking forward to your version of quilting for that quilt. I know yours will be every bit as beautiful as this one.
    I no longer accept anonymous comments on my blog and no longer get spam. I hate the word verification.
