Working on a Quilt-in-My-Head

So, I got this fat quarter pack and it's kind of Christmasy, but not too Christmasy. (I don't like Christmasy fabric AT ALL.) I saw a quilt online and then I couldn't find it again, so I thought I could make it anyway.

I made all negative 9-patches rather than positive 9-patches.

When I put them on the design wall, I realized that there was nothing I could do with them, lol. Nothing that I could figure out, anyway.

So I went looking for another quilt to make.

I found this one at allpeoplequilt. It's a pattern for a quilt called Suite Dream.

So, I've converted my 9-patches to 16-patches.

I may or may not follow the pattern, but I think I will make the border the same.

Hope you're having a quilty day.

Slow Day

Not feeling well today. :-(

We finished school in good time this morning, though. I always feel better when all the kiddos school is finished.

This afternoon, I took a nap and I still don't feel much better, but I'm going to work on a block so I can go sew with my friend, Candice tomorrow. We're doing a quilt together, so I'll try and get some photos to share with you all.

Hope you're having a quilty day!

I've Been Busy

I've been busy this last week. I quilted four quilts and a friend quilted two and now it's time to bind.

Here are some pictures of the quilts held by my faithful quilt holder, Josiah.

Now, some obligatory kid pictures.

Hope you're having a quilty day!

Working on David's Quilt

This is the first quilt that I'm going to be finishing. It's for my brother who recently moved up to Bismarck.

I LOVE having my brother nearby. The rest of my family lives in Kansas and Colorado, and that's a LONG way from North Dakota!

David's Quilt
I'll have to see if I can find the book that this quilt came from. I love it!

I'm going to be quilting the heck out of the background causing the shapes to pop up.

Quilting the background
It's going to take a bit of time, but I think it will be awesome.

Addendum: This quilt came from the book Beyond Neutral. There are quite a few modern quilts. I really like several of them.

Goals for Remainder of 2015

I need to get my UFOs finished!

So, here's the deal. My goal is to get all the quilts (in various stages of finishment) finished by the end of the year.

This is a wardrobe

This is a wardrobe full of quilts!

Think I can do it?
