Finally got a photo of my #11, though I actually worked on it a bit and got it all cut out and a few blocks sewn. It is a super-easy design, so I should be able to at least get the top done this month. And I have a panel for it that I will probably use as part of the back.

I'm still working on my Bon Bon as Donna calls it.  She says it's a reduced Bonnie Hunter quilt.  LOL

Today I added a thin Teal and tomorrow I'll finish it off with a wider cream.  :D

My top is sandwiched and ready to be quilted.  I am figuring I should have this finished tomorrow.

I talked to Max and he picked the Kansas Troubles fabric I purchased from Globug to be used for his teachers quilt.  So that will be my next project to work on.

Yikes!  I just realised I forgot to photograph the two finished quilts before I took them to the church.  This is them in quilted, but not yet bound, stage.  But I did finish them and they are out of the house.

Wonderful projects!  I sewed more strings and have almost enough cut to begin assembly.

GG -- I love your ORL setting.  The extra nine patches in the triple sashing really makes the quilt. And turning half the corner blocks the other way really adds to the design.  I had originally thought about using a triple sashing and am now reconsidering it after seeing yours.  How large will this end up after you put on the cream border?

1.5 cutting pieces but not because it's so complicated but because I had to make a shopping trip to my closet to find a replacement as the kit was missing a fabric (weird).

Blocks are done but the picture is so crappy that I won't post it. This weekend I hope I can complete the top. It has been a bit difficult to regain the habit and I felt discouraged today because I found the kit was incomplete when I began working with it. This was a gift ordered for me from a third party and I had never opened it until today and It was missing fabric for the blocks' frames and extra inner border (at least 1.5 yards) and the panel was 6 inches smaller than it should be as per pattern included  However, I will try to handle it, following the layout instructions for the measures I have. Either way, the good part is that I am doing it :-)

Aw thats such a bummer!  I think you are a trooper for pushing through :D

Today I am thinking I will start working on my #5, its a quilt for my son's teacher.  At this point I have fabric :)

I'm pushing to finish #4, the gold and brown runner. I'm still using #7 as leader and enders but that could be showing up for many months. I pulled out #8. This is the photo I took in 2015 when I finished it. I recently pulled it out of my son's closet, laid it on his bed and immediately knew that I had to lose the final border. So it came into 2018 with the border cut off the quilt and the binding saved. I now need to add a cuddly back on top of the cotton backing, tack it and bind the smaller quilt.

I'm working on my mermaid block today, but its slow going.

The way to get started is to quit talking and start doing.

I've got a couple arcs done.  They're only 9 pieces each, but its hard to sew when your toddler thinks you should be doing other things,

I felt very motivated and finished my Wonky swap butterflies. I even hand stitched the binding this time. The colors are brighter than the main picture. My craft room was flooded with sun until I pulled out my phone to take a picture and then it was dark and cloudy. The close up of the quilting is more accurate. With the quilting I wanted it to look like the trails of many fluttering butterflies. The backing fabric is one I have been hoarding for quite some time. I don't even remeber where it came from but I'm happy that there is still a nice size piece left to hoard. The backing is all one piece and I have no clue why it's printed the way it is like a half circle and all that negative space but I like it.

The past week was busy, so I didn't get a lot done.  I focused on finishing Bonnie Hunter steps 6 & 7.

Step 6 - finished final trimming of the shadowed 4-patch blocks - 200 done!

      

Step 7 - finished seaming together a brown and coral flying goose to and pressing them open - 200 done!

      

Before I can do my final border cutting and packaging for retreat, I have to decide on the final layout.  This next week, I'll focus on visiting Bonnie's Facebook page as well as studying the BH quilts that have been posted here to decide if I'm going with Bonnie's all the way or stealing elements of what's been shown by others.

[quote=quiltertess;369913]My #11 is the pirate quilt and it is applique. I have always wanted to make a pirate quilt. Is this your design or is there a pattern out there somewhere?

 

It's a pattern called "It's a Pirates Life" by The Country Quilter.  There is a picture of it in my next post.


Thanks!!!
