Road to California Quilt show and one little Block of the Month

This past week I was able to attend the Road to California Quilt Show in Ontario, California with 2 dear friends and always meet up with other friends while there.  This year I took a class from Helen from Sew Kind of Wonderful - the Quick Curve Ruler people.

Here's what I accomplished in the class.
Pay close attention now.  Here is what my friend Debbie and Kathy finished in class.

You notice it?  Someone didn't pay attention to the placement of her blocks or even the name of the pattern/class - Metro Rings.  Easy fix though.  Just have to be more careful when I get around to finishing the quilt which won't be for a while.  I have some other items that need to get finished first.  More on that later.

While at this lovely quilt show I saw many a beautiful quilt for inspiration.  Did I take a picture of any of them?  Well no, I forgot my camera and I didn't want to use all my memory on my phone for the photos.  I hope someone took pictures and posted them on their blog…

Finally - I've finished a couple quilts and another year-end list

The tops have been done for quite a while and they have been pinned since before Thanksgiving.  But I finally finished these 3 quilts.

The first one is my Farm Girl Vintage.  I participated in the Farm Girl Vintage sew along last year through Fat Quarter Shop and decided to use fabrics I already had.  These blocks are made from mostly some older Fig Tree fabric lines.




I also participated in a Twisted Blossom sew along through Sew Kind of Wonderful.  I used some Alison Glass Sun print fabrics I was hoarding.




And last but not least, it's the Christmas quilt.  The one I made for our guilds boutique (that was last October) that a lady requested the year before.  She contacted me before the boutique and I sent her a picture of the top - she said it was too pink and too small.  It covered my king sized bed.  I won't make one bigger. So this one will be on sale at the next boutique for anyone who wants it.




I'm currently machine quilting a quilt for a friend.  It's a blue w…

2015 Year In Review

When I started thinking about this years 'year in review' quilts, I was worried I didn't make that many.  I guess it's because I started thinking about what I want to enter in our local quilt show and I couldn't think of anything that I still owned that was show worthy.   But I was a busy girl this year I guess.





And most of the boutique items I made.  A couple I forgot to take pictures.
I had a great new years weekend sewing at a friends house.  I machine quilted 2 more quilts but am still sewing the binding down.  I'm almost done with the Christmas one too.  Maybe have that done by the end of this weekend.  However, I have been gone for the last couple weekends and my poor house has been neglected.  My Christmas decorations are still up.  Must get busy.  Tomorrow.

Thank you for looking and sticking with me another year.
