The Norways. There are two. I love this pattern. Submitting this to the bloggers quilt festival in the Large quilts category. Christmas version. I loved piecing this one together. Pattern is Norway by Camille Roskelley. Quilting done by Sarah Wilson aka Crinklelove.
Then the Cheery Cotton and Steel version.
This one remains unbound for now.
Amazing, stunning, I cannot say enough wonderful things about this custom quilting done by Heidi Rodli aka Pieceandjoyquiltingco. This is Heidi's photo
I can't wait to get this one finished up, so I can show you the full reveal.
Happy Sewing and enjoy the Bloggers Quilt Festival!

Part 2. My second entry into the Original Quilts section for Amy's Creative Side Next up is the "Nailed it!" quilt named by none other than Angela Pingels (cut to pieces) hubby. It's a tongue-in-cheek purely Halloween themed quilt that doesn't need to be taken seriously. Tumblers and half hexies create a coffin shape within a larger coffin shape. Outlined in white and floating on a damask background. Purely halloween decorative for a ghastly holiday that I love for it's fun spirit. Lots of various angled straight lined quilting finishes it off. Happy Sewing!

I have been so remiss in posting that I doubt I have any readership left, but here is my entry for the Bloggers Quilt Festival put on by Amy's Creative Side I'm entering this in the Original Designs Category This is really a very simple quilt. It's all made of 4 blocks. Each block is a complete flower and a wide sashing in the same fabric as the background makes those mod blooms float. The flower blocks are made of 4 smaller blocks that each have 2 curved pieces in them. The entire quilt is pieced, not appliqued, and then I matchstick quilted the entire quilt in various shades of variegated and solid aurifil thread. The blocks are made of Kona solids and Essex yarn-dyed linen in flax (one of my favs) for the background. This quilt was originally designed for Quiltcon 2014 but not completed in time for submission. All that matchstick quilting really kicked-my-butt! ;) I'll have to confess that i had all kinds of issues with my walking foot and the pressure foot pressure on this quilt which has led to less than stellar results on the quilting. In the end I figured out that I had a defective walking foot (it wasn't walking properly or feeding my fabric) so the fabric is pulled in places which is unfortunate, but i still love the quilt and have put in too much effort to just let it go. Lesson learned, next time i'll know what to look for. Happy Sewing!
