{Post 1,500} Fourteen Finished

Fourteen Disappearing 9-Patch blocks finished.  This is about 50" wide.  This goes so fast.  I might finish it much sooner than I originally thought.  This is about 1/4 of what I need for a queen-sized quilt.  

This could easily be made patriotic (red and blue squares with gold accent squares) or Christmas (red and green with gold).  It is fun to use the charm squares because there is so much built-in variety.

{Post 1,499} Disappearing 9-Patches

I have made two of these blocks each AM for the last 4 days.  I like how they look when placed side-by-side.  I already have a quilting design in mind!!  That's way ahead of the game for me.

They are 13" square finished.

I ordered a few more charm packs last night.  Eager to see them in person.  Yes, I lead a very sheltered and boring life.  It's OK to think that ;)

{Post 1,498} Wonky Again

Started quilting my Past and Present 58" x 70" quilt top today.  I used Wonky Feathers from Pajama Quilter's a personal favorite.  I am over halfway finished, and it is looking good...

This will be ready for couch use this Christmas!!

{Post 1,497} Two New Projects to Share, and a Kid

Here are two projects I am beginning.  I have two Christmas quilts to machine quilt, then I'm home free for my own projects.

This first one is Bonnie Hunter's leader/ender for this year.  These are tumbler/thimble pieces.  Mine will finish 2" tall.  I spent a couple hours one day trimming down scraps for this.  There is not a lot of variety right now because I only trimmed down blues, browns, reds, and blacks.  I plan to remedy that soon...after I machine quilt the above two mentioned items.

This is a larger item.  I hope to make it into a queen-size summer quilt for our guest room downstairs.  The blocks are disappearing 9-patch.  By using the blue fabric for the center square, it will repeat in that position in each block.  The blocks finish at 13" square.

During one of my insomniatic nights, I came across the top for this runner.  It has been languishing marinating since 2011.  It is fairly large.  16" x 46"...for my Christmas table.

I stayed overnight at my daughter's Sunday.  Got to spend some quality time with this little nipper on Monday.  He has my chin (s) !!
