  10. Georgie says:

    I’m working on a quilt called Vintage Stitches, a pattern I found in one of Lynette Jensen’s books. I’ve been hoarding it for a couple years & I just found some fabric that matches my “dream fabric” for the project. I’m using a collection of muted shades of beiges, golds, browns, & grays in floral patterns with a cream solid. It is a 12 block sampler with complicated blocks. I’m piecing by machine & hand quilting. Thank you for the giveaways.

  15. WyoDi says:

    Wow, Day 3 and so many teaser blocks!! Thanks Quilters!!

  16. I know it is unconventional and many of you may laugh or scoff. But my Aunt passed away recently. She was a seamstress from long ago. She made things from baby Jammie’s to suits and wedding dresses. She was my inspiration and helped me pursue my love of sewing. I’ve been away from home a long time but she told my cousin upon her passing to give me her sewing treasures. A serger, thread, hand cut patterns and tons of fabric. Lots of polyester. Lots of quilt tops almost finished. She cut out and sewed while undergoing cancer treatments. I plan on finishing all those pieces and give to my family for Christmas this year. I literally have my job cut out for me. Next year I will start planning beautiful fabric like you show here. But now it’s time to give back.

  17. I’m working on making a small wall hanging with civil war fabrics. I’m trying to master making really small 3 and 4″ blocks.

  18. Ellen says:

    I am working on a machine embroidery quilt that has a train track embroidered on it. and then also working on another embroidery quilt with chevron strips between the blocks for a new baby in the family.

  19. Janice Huddleston says:

    I’m looking forward to making some of the blocks from the new 100 blocks book. I’m going to use some batiks. This looks like so much fun!!

  20. Carol W says:

    I’m finally quilting a lovely scrap quilt that’s been a finished top for several years. It’s bright multicolor prints, with solid black and white on white prints as neutrals.

  21. Mara Cockman says:

    I’m working on a scrappy circles quilt. Gotta love using those scraps. Verdict’s still out on how I feel about circle. Lots of fun to cut with the Olfa circle cutter (what a fun toy). I’m just a little nervous about how the sewing will go. This is my first attempt with circles and those curves are a little intimidating. Wish me luck! And thanks for the giveaway!

  22. Kaye says:

    I’m working on a quilt made with squares from left over fabric from sewing clothes. The different fabrics bring back lots of memories.

  23. Patti says:

    I am in the final stages of finishing up a tee-shirt quilt for my husband. When my Step-Father died, it really impacted my husband a lot. They became very close in a very short period of time. We moved him and my Mother closer to care for her during her terminal illness, and it was during these short 10 months that they grew close. My Dad was most comfortable in tee-shirts and shorts. He said it was his Florida outfit. When He passed, I wanted to give my husband something that would honor my father and to help him heal from the loss, thus the tee-shirt quilt, so I took his favorite ones and put together a labor of love. Putting this together has also helped me heal.

  24. I just finished a quilt top for my soon to be, grandson. It is a simple irish chain style with some fun blocks.


  25. Angele says:

    I just finished a mystery quilt and have to quilt two and make a baby quilt for my future great niece . So lots of work but fun work that I enjoy and helps me relax.

  29. Bonnie says:

    Tonight I sewed the binding on three baby quilts for a abuse shelter and Ronald McDonald house.. I have three lap quilts quilted waiting on binding, one on the frame and 5 more waiting to be quilted these will go to a nursing home and two will go to the Cancer institute for the patients there…

  30. Becky Hall says:

  36. Bonnie says:

  37. kathy says:

    I am ready to roll over the fleece backing and stitch to the front of my “Healthy and Happy” fruit and vegetable patterned “H” block quilt for a lap quilt for my mom in a care center. I even used different themed backgrounds in some of the blocks, i.e. kids in the watermelon “H”, birds in the strawberry “H”, etc for interest.

  38. Annie says:

    I’m working on a paper piecing project, Technicolor Snowflake, designed by Linda McGibbon.

  39. Jenny says:

    I just finished my very first quilt – a king size bedspread for my aunt! I delivered it today and she loved it. I can’t wait to start my next project!

  40. Karen McManus says:

    At this time I am working on two wall hanging projects using Batiks. One has three different size star blocks and another that is a star within a star. The other is the Contrary Husband block. Each project is using a huge variety of Batiks.

  41. Tania says:

    I’ve just started on the Farmers Wife Quilt Blocks, 11 blocks down, 100 to go! I’m paper piecing them…wish me luck.

  42. Denise says:

    I am working on a fabric paperdoll with lots of dresses to fuse to flannel or batting so they adhere to doll. Have never done this. Hope it works.

  43. Bridget says:

    Right now, I am quilting a baby quilt with stars and another block. I can’t remember where I got this pattern from. It is a top that I finished long ago and I am now just getting around to quilting. I am happy with how it is coming along. Just the two borders left to do now.

  44. usairdoll says:

    WoW! Looks like I’m not alone in having lots of projects going on, hehe. I have several projects and classes. Each month, three embroidery BOM projects, one of which is Leanne’s House, two quilting BOM, one of which is Women of Courage, two hand piecing quilts and our quilting group, 7 Stitches, is making a baby quilt for one of the member’s daughter who is expecting this summer.

    Thank you for a super giveaway and a chance to win.


  45. Lori-Lyn Dunn says:

    I have made over 240 quilts- but only own 2. Most are comfort quilts for cancer patients. My husband just recently had thyroid cancer and now wants a quilt. So I am working on the Lucky Star by Atkinson Designs out of Oriental fabrics, that I will keep.
    He doesn’t believe he will get to keep this one.

  46. JillB says:

    I have two in progress. I am actually making my first bug jar quilt for my 4 yr old great nephew… not too interesting, but lots of fun. This comes after 5 great nieces’ quilts.
    Months ago, I quit smoking and to break the habit, I took boxes of scraps and just kept ironing them and cutting them into strips. Now I have begun paper piecing them into string blocks. I actually miss my alone time out on the deck more than the nicotine, but I am going to be proud of this quilt when completed!

  47. Nancy says:

    I am in the process of finishing quilting my youngest son’s high school graduation quilt. It is bitter sweet! I am happy to see him going off to college, but boy am I going to miss him.

  54. Haydee Davidson says:

    I’m currently working on an “American” red white and blue quilt as well as the block of the months for the “American Homefront” book of letters and blocks. Really looking forward to Vol 7!! :)

  55. Shirley V says:

    I am working on my first quilt. The pattern is called “turning leaves” and was published a few years ago in Quiltmaker magazine. I am using batiks, and so far, I have done all the applique and piecing by hand. I have several, well, more than several, quilts patterns in my “want to make” file.

  56. Ruth Alf says:

    I am currently working on a butterfly quilt and finishing up a double Irish chain quilt. Other projects in the works include some table toppers. It would be so wonderful to win Vol 7!

  57. LeeAnn says:

    I am just starting Jodi Barrows Pony Express quilt. Since it went close to where I live, I thought it would be fun to do!

  58. Diantha Howard says:

  59. Wendy says:

  60. Lavonna ZWB says:

I just need to get the binding on it and then it is done! The next one is a quilt for the It’s for the Birds Blog Hop. I have finished the center and am working on the birdhouse borders now.

  69. jmniffer says:

    I’m making a lap quilt out of fall colored batiks for my Mom. I’m looking forward to the weekend for some quality sewing time.

  70. Barbara Anderson says:

    I am working on wild purple quilt for my 6 year old granddaughter! It has embroidery blocks of her favorits embroidery designs, patterns, stripes, prints, etc. that she responded to. It is amazing because she picked it. It is very eclectic and fun. Best of all its cramed with love.

  71. Roberta Miller-Haraway says:

    Designing a quilt with stars and bear paws is keeping me busy.

  72. Lou Brewer says:

    I am working on a quilt for a 7 year old boy whose family home burned one morning as he was getting on the school bus and he saw it happening. They lost everything. A group of women I quilt with and I decided to make quilts for the parents and the 3 young boys. Mine is for the 7 year old who loves sports. I’ve used a number of fabrics in my stash and it is ready to be quilted now.

  73. Marian says:

    Last year two different ladies gave me a huge stash of materials. One lady was cleaning out her stash because she can no longer see well enough to quilt, so I helped her clean out and came away with 10 bags to sort out, keeping 2 x 6litre rubbish bags of materials for myself. The other lady was gave me a 30litre rubbish bag of assorted scraps. Heavenly!! Some of the fabrics in this bag is the same as fabric I have had in my stash of over 15 years. So I have used some of these scraps, some blocks from an online scrap group challenge I am in and some scraps from my own stash to make my first scrappy quilt. Although I had to buy material for sashing. It is coming along quite well, if a little slowly.

  74. Laura G. says:

    Right now I’m gathering fabric for a thirties pattern. Finding the right color green is becoming a problem. I am also in the process of quilting a modern throw/baby quilt.

  75. Nancy Angerer says:

    I am in the process of collecting signatures for a friendship quilt. We will be moving from Illinois to Alabama the end of the month. I decided to make a quilt which I will call “Remember Champaign/Urbana.” After living in a college town for 52 years, many people who have touched our lives have moved away and some have died. I have decided to write their names myself. This is going to be a real work of love for me and a good way to bring closure to our time here.

  76. Lynda says:

    I’m working on a cathedral windows, long process but I love the look.

  77. Theresa Litz says:

  79. Kathy O in GA says:

    I’m working on several hand projects while I attempt to re-do my sewing areas. Then I plan to get back to my quilts from Bonnie Hunter’s classes at the Williamsburg Event last year! Most recently I finished piecing a My Blue Heaven of Bonnie’s, but I haven’t quilted it yet.

  80. Dortha says:

    I am working on a split four patch baby quilt. It is turning out very pretty.

  82. Lauren aka Giddy99 says:

    I’m paper-piecing a queen-size quilt for my dad, out of Parson Gray fabrics using a Fresh Lemons pattern. :)

  93. Nancy says:

  94. Janine Huisjen says:

    Right now I’m working on a landscape quilt from a photo I took last year. I’m using techniques I learned from Ruth Mc Dowell, using freezer paper templates and piecing the quilt like a puzzle. It’s taking me a long time but I’m learning a lot as I go.

  95. Kim says:

    Right now I am working on a hand project….A coffin paper pieced scrappy quilt. Whew….it’s a lot of stitching!

  97. Pam says:

    Right now I’m selecting fabrics for two baby quilts that I will need this summer, and I am sewing a scrappy nine patch bed quilt. It’s the first scrappy nine patch I’ve done and I am liking the blocks that are appearing. :)

  98. Teresa Naylin says:

    Just picked up Salmon Run by Steve Marquez in a quilt shop in Astoria, Oregon. It is a beautiful reproduction of canning labels that went on the cans of salmon shipped around the world in the 1890′s.
    Probably a wall hanging… Or, maybe a throw. Oh I love the design process :-)

  99. Jinnine Pearce says:

    I have just finished the top of a quilt I made using two Moda scrap bags of jelly roll strips.
    It has a geometric lay out so was a bit of a challenge to rearrange so I only used the fabric in the scrap bags. Now the borders and quilting decisions to be made.

  100. Brenda Cornell says:

    I am working on Stars for a New Day by Sue Garman. It is a huge project and I am out to the 2nd from last set of borders.
