Quilt-along 2021

The craftroom door is in and the builder made very little mess…it took him forever, but he was quite careful. I can now finish the baseboard, door trim, and wall repair! yay!

Now that everything is uncovered again, I have to create my BOM for April. And take apart the other block I made, I don’t like it. I resist ripping things apart, but then I am usually so glad I did.

I MistressJennie offer Scrappy Star Quilt for my small challenge entry.


I’ve wanted to get Edel’s quilt tops finished since they arrived nearly a year ago in the Go Bananas Swap. I’m so glad to have them both done now. Though I still haven’t decided if the star quilt will be a lap quilt, or if I’ll hang it as a wall quilt. I’m going to keep trying it around different part of the house till it tells me where it wants to live.

Gorgeous! You should post your log cabin heart block! It is gorgeous as well!

I did, back when I made it in February. I had just been talking to Noodle on FB Messenger over the weekend, and she mentioned that she hadn’t seen me posting on Instagram or FB recently, so I went back through my phone and posted a few projects that I hadn’t put on social media at the time. :smiley:

That is really beautiful. I love how cohesive the color scheme is even though it’s really drastic!

@tendstowardschaos, I love how your colorwash quilt is coming along! I’m looking forward to seeing it completed!

@MistressJennie, you did a great job finishing up the quilt top. I really like the idea of it auditioning in different parts of the house until you find the right spot for it :relaxed:.

I haven’t been doing much on the creative front lately. My husband and I recently decided to rent an apartment in San Diego as a vacation getaway. We moved in at the end of last month, but we still need to add additional furnishings (like a desk or table), so as of right now, there’s no place to sew while there. With my son still having Zoom classes, I plan on making the most of it and maximizing our time there. As a result, I’m living vicariously through the projects posted here and am loving all that is posted!

I did recently order the quilt kit below and am looking forward to starting on it.

The kit I posted above is just one of a few that I’ve picked up along my quilting journey. It has me wondering about everyone else. Do any of you have kits or projects just waiting for you to get started on them (or maybe just to finish them)? If so, I’d love to see them!

That is really pretty! Quite the stunner! It’ll be fun to see you work on it!

I will hope to get back to quilting more this summer. I purchased like 3 patterns earlier this year that have been placed on the wayside.

I purchased 2 packages of material for baby quilts before we moved but won’t start them before our house is finished.

We started a new ‘hobby business’ making and selling pepperoni sticks and can hardly keep up with demand, plus building our house, hasn’t left much time for quilting. I had plans to work on three quilts at once this spring but think I’ll pick just one to putter away at.

Today I finally have time to get my new Jazz II out to use for only the 2nd time. I am working away at my BOM! I really wanted to be sure to work on this one since I chose this month’s block!

I’m really looking forward to the quilt block swap gallery! I’m trying to figure out a way that I can participate. It sounds like a lot of fun and something I don’t want to miss out on!

I hope you’ll join us! If the small groups seem like too much, I’m sure I can work out a single partner for you.

I finally finished my second I-spy quilt top! I had difficulty finding a border I was happy with, so I used the same technique that @marionberries used on her I-spy quilt and went with a smaller inner border. Thanks for the idea, I’m loving the look!

This quilt will be for my llama loving nephew (hence the four different llama corners). I originally wanted to use some llama fabric for the border, but I just couldn’t find anything that I liked. So, instead, I’m going to use my embroidery machine to quilt a llama design on the border :llama:.

But first things first, I need to get started on the back of the quilt next, which feels like a lot of work and is the whole reason I set this quilt aside in the first place. In reality, it isn’t that much work, I’ll just take it one step at a time!
