Heartfelt Charity Quilt

I'm all caught up on my Heartfelt quilt.  You can find it at Fat Quarter Shop, it's free, they suggest you make a donation to Make a Wish foundation. 

I am using a fat quarter bundle that I had of Just Red by Zen Chic for Moda fabrics.  The colors don't show up very well here, but they're bright pinks and reds, with some pastel pinks.

I think the background is a Corey Yoder, it's the same one that Kimberly is using in her quilt.

Here's a closeup of the darker fabric, it's not black, just a dark, blood red.  It adds interest to the other reds and pinks.  
I love the little bit of gold on this fabric too!

Have a great week!!!

Savor the Gnoment

 This is a really cute quilt, part of it is from a panel.

The fabric is called "Savor the Gnoment" by Susan Winget, from Wilmington Prints fabric.

The pattern is free, you can find it here.

I think all the little gnomes are really cute!

Have a great week!

RBD Block Challenge

I just have to make one more block and I'll have my 16 blocks completed for the challenge.

I belong to a Facebook page for this group and people have been talking about a 17th block!  I don't know how the odd number will fit into a quit setting, and am very excited to see what the mystery is. 

Luckily, I have two extra blocks that I made at the beginning that I can use :) I really love all these Tasha Noel fabrics, have always wanted to make a quilt out of them!

I'll show you my progress later.  Thanks for following along!

Stay Gold panel quilt

 My friend and I are making this quilt together.  We haven't sewn together in a month but so far, we each have 10 blocks made.  We are only making 20 blocks, four across and five down. The fabric line is called "Stay Gold" by Ruby Star Society.  I think it's such beautiful fabric, I would really love to buy some more!  

I think we're kindred spirits!!! The fabric and I!

Here is my design wall and all the blocks I've sewn sew far.  We are using the large Quilt in a Day flying geese ruler, making it so fast and easy to sew the blocks together.  If you haven't tried it, you should! On my ironing board, I have the rest of the blocks cut out.  I was having a great time choosing two fabrics for each block, but towards the end, I wasn't having as much selection.  I bought some selected fat quarters and some yardage (1/2 yard each) of three big prints. I should have bought a fat quarter bundle....

The fabric actually has some metallic gold in most of the prints.

Each quilt panel is 2 yards and comes with 40 designs.
I used most of the vintage prints.  The designs I didn't use, were birds, butterflies and flowers.  I would like to use them for a different project.
I love pens, so this choice was perfect! 
(cute and smooth writing gel pens)

Love, love, love this typewriter!!!

I love this vintage picnic basket and accessories!!!

LOVE ❤️ 

I'm really looking forward to finishing this quilt, it might take us another three sew days because well...we talk a lot! 😂

Projects that I have on the go (WIPs) aka works in progress:

- Riley Blake Design Block Challenge (I'm about 3 or 4 weeks behind)

- Fat Quarter's Heartfelt:  I have April's blocks cut out but not sewn.

- Silent Night, just need to cut the sashing and sew the blocks together

- Phoenix Modern Quilt Guild quilting bee:  still need to paper piece April's block and finish cutting my blocks out for the month of June.

- My Adobe Illustrator goals have been on the back burner, I need to set aside time to work on that. 😩

I finished my "secret sewing" quilt and another commissioned quilt 🎉

Have a great week and happy sewing!
