I couldn't really wrap anything up until I finished them, so here are the project that I've pulled out of special boxes to begin finishing them and while I'm finishing these lovelies, I'll prepare a bunch of tutorials which I'll link up to from my blog.
First up is the "Summer on the Range" quilt with 4 large 21 petalled Dresden Plate quilt that I started in late 2011 and then began organizing the mega project in early 2012. What was I thinking?
There was absolutely no way I could do a quilt along and sincerely, my readers knew this, right?
Thankfully, my loyal and faithful followers have continued to listen to my ramblings as I took on the Smithers Centennial Quilt. What did you think of that particular quilt, I'd love to hear your thoughts?
Then onto my little project on hand applique tiny Dresden Plates from my favourite quilting magazine "Quilt Mania"
Unfortunately, I cannot find this magazine now to comment on the actual designer, but do check into Quilt Mania!
It was a practice on hand applique so I'd be ready for the mega project.
I used vintage fabrics for the petals, my version is called 'Pretty Petals" and I also used vintage fabrics for the background.
Then 2013 is the year to complete this one, its been around now for several years and really deserves the finishing touches to really make this one pop.
This quilt is one of the Round Robin quilts that I participated on during the past ten years of living back in the Bulkley Valley. Its my Mexacali Quilt.
My chicken quilt has also been around for sometime. I used home made templates for the individual chickens and its needing a home outside my special box.
Then this one is my Modern Orange quilt. Simply as that, its got no name and is still in the process.
And then there is this one that is kind of wonky in my opinion. I'm not sure that I'll leave the hexy flowers in place, we'll see as this progresses.
These are the unfinished or UFO's that will get done first this fall. I'm preparing tutorials on hand applique, modern settings, free motion quilting and freelancing your stash.
Ok, so that is what I'm working on and you know new stuff will pop in as my other projects on thread painting proceed. Let me know if you are interested in my upcoming Thread Painting Fun workshop online?
Bye for now,
