My quilting adventures were…wait for it…legendary! even if my blog doesn’t know it…

Well hasn’t the dust been collecting on my blog! My last post was June 2015. Horrors! I admit, I am not the most dutiful of bloggers. I spend more of my time on Instagram and Facebook and don’t get to the blog life as frequently as I would like. Which is kind of sad, since I could do it on the phone that has apparently been surgically attached to my hand.

What have I been doing since June? Well lots! I participated in a couple of swaps, including the legendary schnitzelandboo swap and the banner swap. I pattern tested for the talented Jeliquilts and karietwokwikquilters. I made lots of Halloween stuff. I made some pieces for Andover for quilt market. I worked with Katarina Roccella’s Imprint line. I even played with Pat Bravo fabric and Joann Hawley’s geese ruler.

While I did finish up some lingering projects, I also left a lot lingering, so 2016 will be busy trying to get things quilted and bindings on a variety of pieces that were done last year. Here’s some highlights of the latter part of 2016, including some shots of Cody, my evildemondevildog, who had surgery to remove a mast cell tumor in his leg.

Happy sewing and a fun 2016 to all!

Imprint fabrics – the colors were gorgeous and saturated and I even used a white background 🙂
Imprint fabrics small play – I got obsessed with shadow blocks.
When you decide that half square triangles are the most versatile block on the face of the planet. Almost better than Legos. Almost…
Post op tumor removal. We lived in the basement for a few weeks. My little Frankenwienie.
I had a blast pattern testing for tartankiwi. The zebra was too much fun. My multi colored version. The fruit strip gum one is my favorite!
Pattern testing for Jeliquilts. Her geese patterns are always stunning.
Only picture I have of this. It got quilted. And sent to someone 🙂
Recovering! it took months for his hair to grow back in.
Found this awesome pattern at my local Joanns – made for a friend in Washington state.
Used alexander henry fabrics to experiment with a technique from a fellow quilter.
I made some stuffed animals. for fun.
I think my obsession with wedges will spill into 2016.
my schnitzelandboo mini swap – somewhere there’s a picture of the quilted piece!
a baby quilt I made for a friend’s daughter. it was pink. that is all I will say.
I may have been very indecisive for the schnitzelandboo swap.
and i used beelori’s pattern and became entranced with making pin cushions. I had to make this one for me.
and a friend of mine looks superb as Dr. Frankenfurter, so she deserved a pillow. i’m not very good at thread painting.
So I think mushyhed got to keep this – an andover piece that went to quilt market.
Alison glass’ abacus line was sublime.
I became enchanted with Elizabeth Hartman’s Hazel the Hedgehog pattern. I may have gone overboard.
I found this tee shirt at a local outlet store for a few bucks. I couldn’t resist and I think it made an awesome wall hanging.
One of my other quilt market pieces using Alison Glass fabric lines abacus and indigo. I called it Madonna – old but still a star 🙂
One of my other favorite makes in 2015. thetattooedquilter made me do it. He made a frankenhazel and I got out of control and made hazel the horror classic stars. including invisible hazel. I love invisible hazel.
Pat Bravo fabrics + Joann Hawley flying geese ruler = perfection.
this was for my cousin Amy. I made one for myself too. Andover fabrics great panel!
These are living with quilting friend – April Rhoades banner swap. Fun stuff.
Kari Jewell pattern. Awesome fun.
My quilty friend jessicaquilter let me test several selvage patterns she developed. They are too awesome.
and just in time for Christmas, jeliquilts came up with this awesome pattern I tested for her. I could never get a photo that did the fabric colors justice.
sariditty did some awesome graffiti quilting on a piece I made out of Michael miller solids. and I got to meet her. In real life even.
see, i do exist.
probably the most awesome thing I made in 2015. tartankiwi pattern, kappeskreations quilting. my fruit strip gum zebra.
the banner i received in the swap was way too awesome.
all recovered and he endures anything…
another jeliquilts test.
this little hedgehog went to live with my cousin.
