Some hexies, some wine. Day 41/100 #100daysofquilting #makingprogresseveryday #handwork
Blocks 1-9! Can’t believe I’m keeping up with this challenge so far! Really pleased and learning so much, an excellent project for beginners! #weallstartsomewhere #myblocks #foxy #seamripperismybestfriend #sewmystash #quiltalong #100days100blocks2018 #stilllearning #quiltsofinstagram #100daysofquilting #quilting #shadesofblue #create #sewing #fabric #fabricstash

Block 9 - done βœ… I really like this one and enjoyed doing it! I like the large area in the centre piece to really see the fabric pattern 😍 #nighttime #owl #owlsofinstagram #stars #twinkletwinkle #sewmystash #quiltalong #100days100blocks2018 #stilllearning #quiltsofinstagram #100daysofquilting #quilting #shadesofblue #create #sewing #fabric #fabricstash
Block 8 - done βœ…This was a real pain in the bum! I don’t think the fabric choice was the best, one was much thinner so skewed the stitching a bit πŸ™ˆ then had to unpick one section because I had seen the wrong way round!! #seamripperismybestfriend #sewmystash #quiltalong #100days100blocks2018 #stilllearning #quiltsofinstagram #100daysofquilting #quilting #shadesofblue #create #sewing #fabric #fabricstash #floralfabric
Back to noodling around with these improv blocks from the @jeanwellsquilts workshop. I might add some longer strips and see how it goes. Day40/100 #100daysofquilting #improvquilting #curvedpiecing #mostlysolids
Block 8 - done βœ…This was a fiddly one!! Loving the foxes 🦊 but a little on the wonky side πŸ™ˆπŸ™ˆ #foxy #foxes #fox #sewmystash #quiltalong #100days100blocks2018 #stilllearning #quiltsofinstagram #100daysofquilting #quilting #shadesofblue #create #sewing #fabric #fabricstash #spotsandstripes #blueandgrey
This is a good palate cleanser between projects. Stitch scraps on to #addingmachinetape and eventually have enough strips to make a quilt like the one in the next picture. This was on display at a vendor's booth at the Quilters Unlimited show in June. Day39/100 #100daysofquilting #quiltersunlimited #scrapquilt
Block 6 - done βœ…Love the Blue, White and Grey combo 😍 The white is an old shirt that was for the charity shop but I liked the feel of the fabric so thought I would recycle in this project! #sewmystash #quiltalong #100days100blocks2018 #stilllearning #quiltsofinstagram #100daysofquilting #quilting #shadesofblue #create #sewing #fabric #fabricstash #whilethebabysleeps #28weekspregnant #tulapinkcitysampler #spottyfabric #94togo #recycle #upcycle
I decided to frame this sentimental piece in an embroidery hoop wrapped in fabric. Now to find a place to hang it! Day 38/100 #100daysofquilting #mymother
A little late but within the timeframe!! Block 5 - done βœ… This one is my favourite so far, I’m in love with the grey heart fabric πŸ–€ although it’s not totally lined up πŸ™ˆ #stilllearning #100days100blocks2018 #spotsandstripes #whilethebabysleeps #tulapinkcitysampler #27weekspregnant #sewmystash #quiltalong #quiltsofinstagram #100daysofquilting #quilting #shadesofblue #create #sewing #fabric #fabricstash
Last month's mqg bom uses asymmetry as a design element. Looks simple, and it is, but I recommend plenty of starch and cutting strips just a tad longer for accuracy's sake. Can't wait to see them all at tomorrow's meeting. Day 37/100 #100daysofquilting #oversizecutting #bestpress #fredericksburgmqg
Its day 100, the #100daysofquilting is done! I didn't get the quilt completed, but I did get the top finished and that is a good stopping point. 100 days of quilting, 2 complete quilts, one quilt top, and a while bunch of ideas for future projects. That's a lot for 100 days! I've learned that I don't like quilting under a deadline. I'll get it done, but the fun is affected. I don't want to quilt if its not fun. Sometimes I like to see before or after work on a weekday. Other days there is no time. I would rather quilt for 6-10 hours when a rainy day coincides with a Saturday with no plans. My house is a furnace. If it's above 80 outside, it's too hot inside to have the iron on and I don't want to quilt. Some parts of quilting are repetitive, like sewing strips. Every part of quilting is awesome, but not every part makes for great photos. Will I do another 100 day project? Probably not. Will I keep quilting? Absolutely!!! #100dayproject #100daysofquilting #100isalot #quilt #quilting #quiltingismytherapy #quiltsoutside #makersgonnamake
Cutting Day 4 of #100days100blocks2018 a little close but got her done. Lighting was an issue towards the end but I love how it came out. . . #100blocks100days2018 #100dayproject #100daysofquilting #quilting #quilts #quiltersofinstagram #quilters
Finished piecing and found a good backing in my stash. This is one weird quilt, but I'm starting to like my ugly duckling. Day 36/100 #100daysofquilting #groupquilt #mqgbom #fredericksburgmqg
Working on the MQG block of the month from our last meeting. Doing a bit of unsewing because I did the layout as 4x3 instead of 3x4. Day 35/100 #100daysofquilting #fredericksburgmqg #spatialrelationships
Day 3 of the #100days100blocks2018 . Who doesn’t love some cats in specs? Lots of tiny pieces on this one. . . #100dayproject #100daysofquilting #quilting #quilts #quiltersofinstagram #quilters
I think I have a plan at last! Hexies made into bigger hexies, each a different colorway of these William Morris reproduction fabrics. And then somehow either sewn together or stitched to white backgrounds. TBD Day 34/100 #100daysofquilting #hexies #handwork #williammorris
Block 2 of 100 - done βœ… Definitely learnt a few lessons with this block, not entirely happy with the end result but it’s all part of something homemade - imperfections make it perfect πŸ’™ #100days100blocks2018 #tulapinkcitysampler #whilethebabysleeps #2down #27weekspregnant #sewmystash #quiltalong #quiltsofinstagram #100daysofquilting #quilting #shadesofblue #create #sewing #fabric #fabricstash

Those adorable #babygiraffes from earlier in the #100dayproject are now a #finishedquilt and a #blogpost . There's a link to my #blog in my profile, #pleasereadmyblog . How are at #day95 already?!?! I was hoping to finish one more #quiltproject before the #100daysofquilting was up, I didn't know if I'm going to make it! #giraffebabyblanket #babyquilt #babyblanket #quilt #quilting #giraffe
Note to self: use - or make - more stripes in my quilts. Day #32 /10 #100daysofquilting #catchingupfromyesterday #yipesstripes #inspirationiseverywhere
English Paper Piecing or Endless Paper Piecing? It might help if I knew where I was going with this. Day 31/100 #100daysofquilting #epp #stars #redwhiteandalittleblue #happyfourthofjuly
Beach bag in the wild! Now that I'm actuslly using it, I would make a few modifications: reinforce the pockets so they don't sag, and add a button/loop closure at the top. But otherwise, it's all good. Thanks again, @jedicraftgirl ! Day 30/100 #100daysofquilting #beachbagatthebeach
I lied. I can't stop taking pictures of stars. This is what the back of a paper pieced block looks like. #day92 #100dayproject #100daysofquilting #paperpiecing #top #innerstarblock #quilting
Polka dots are the best @darcyquilts 😊 #repost ・・・ I went shopping today, and apparently I like dots! The pinks and purples are for the #sweetpeaquilt , one of the blues is a border and only one of the fabrics was a just because I liked it. Did you know @pacificfabrics is having a sale? 25% off! I might go back before the week is over just to build my #stash . Maybe. Probably. #fabricshopping #polkadot #quiltfabric #100dayproject #100daysofquilting #day91 #stashbuilding #pacificfabrics #fabricstore #fabricshop #seattle #fabriclove #fabricsale

Catching up on quilt magazines and saw this color play pattern. I'd love to learn more about color by making this or one like it. Day 29/100 #100daysofquilting #apqmagazine #colorplay #circles #somanyquiltssolittletime
Finished quilting my mother's UFO from thirty-plus years ago! Day 28/100 #100daysofquilting #applique #embroidery #sentimental
Away from my sewing machine right now, but a few things to explore when I return. I've never used wool batting before, any tips? Day 28/100 #100daysofquilting #atleastididntbuyfabric
Saturday: hike. drink tea. start a new quilt project. βœ” βœ” βœ” @wombatquilts I really appreciate your collection of free paper piecing projects! Thank you for making this way of quilting accessible to all! Don't forget, summer in Seattle doesn't start until July 5th! #quiltblock #quiltinprogress #paperpiecing #fpp #wombatquilts #fracturedstar #toomanyprojects #oneatatime #day89 #100dayproject #100daysofquilting
Sometimes all you can do is cut one strip of fabric. Day 27/100 #100daysofquilting #busybusybusy #quiltchallenge #fredericksburgmqg
Getting started on something new that isn't a sweet pea! This block is called a Scrapppy Trip Around The World and this photo shows just the first few steps. #100dayproject #100daysofquilting #day87 #quilt #scrapquilt #scrappy #stashbusting #somethingnew
Life intervened, and no quilting happened yesterday. But today's a new day! Day 24/100 #100daysofquilting #hopespringseternal #apqufochallenge2018
Day 86 (only 2 weeks left) of the #100dayproject is a new photo of an old quilt, and a new blog post! Seriously, I made this quilt back in January or February and never got around to photographing it until now. Oops. It's up on the blog, the link bis in my profile. #100daysofquilting #blog #blogpost #blogger #quilt #logcabin #notcrazyaboutthosecolors
Fabric pull and layout designs for the 20-20 challenge (20 square inches, design inspired by page 20 in a non-quilt magazine, plus by Virginia or Fredericksburg). Scroll right to see the final layout for the Scaled Triangles quilt. Thanks, @sarcasticquilter ! Day 23/100 #100daysofquilting #fredericksburgmqg #manymanyprojects
Finished reworking these blocks this afternoon. Given the range of shades and tones of gray and orange, this seems to work better in a straight setting. Or should I be more adventurous? Day 22/100 #100daysofquilting #groupquilt #fredericksburgmqg #blackandwhitefilter
So many things I #shouldbedoing today, but instead, I'm playing with my new #sweetpea #palette . It's made more difficult by not having a pink or magenta colored pencil. πŸ˜‚ #day84 #100daysofquilting #coloring #thisispartofquilting
Still fiddling around with these blocks of the month. Reconfigured a few of them, now working on placement. Day 20/100 #100daysofquilting #mqgbom #boldcolors #fredericksburgmqg
It's #farmersmarket season and I got #sweetpeas ! I've been staring at this bouquet for 24 hours, and thinking it would make a stunning #colorpalette for a #babygirlquilt . I peeked in my #quiltstash and have tons of these colors. This quilt is 6 or 7 down the to-make line, but that's okay, I'm a bit of a #planner . #day83 #100daysofquilting #alwaysthinkingaboutquilting #flowerbouquet

Done! I was impatient to get this finished, hence a few glitches and reverse sewing. I did turn the whole thing inside out AGAIN to fix the most egregious mistakes. I will enjoy taking this to the beach, and once it's been exposed to sun and saltwater, it will look just fine. Day 20/100 #100daysofquilting #beachbag #octopus #alsoseahorses
This is how I'm feeling about the !#*€*!beach bag. Forgot to match your seams (rookie mistake!)? Didn't quite catch the handle in the top seam? At least it's almost done. Reveal tomorrow that may or may not hide the flaws. Day19/100 #100daysofquilting #beachbag #dammit
Are you kidding me?!? The binding is half an inch short! Grrrrr! #100dayproject #100daysofquilting #day81 #babyquilt #binding #quiltbinding
I know this looks like nothing on Earth, but it's the quilted outside of the bag and the lining complete with key holder. Planning to finish in the next day or so. Day 18/100 #100daysofquilting #beachbag #purpleontheoutside

I got more done than I thought I would with just a few minutes a day! Small quilts are wonderful like that! #day80 #100daysofquilting #100dayproject #day80of100 #80of100
Working on a bag to take to the beach. As @quiltingqueue would say, I was distracted by a squirrel! Day17/100 #100daysofquilting #easilydistracted #octopus
A few more minutes of quilting the giraffe quilt. I'm quilting 1/4 inside and outside every seam, that way all the little pieces are tracked down in at least 2 places. Kids are rough, so their quilts need to be sturdy. #day79 #threeweeksleft #100dayproject #100daysofquilting #100isalot
Not much time for quilting yesterday, but took a few stitches in my mother's applique. Day16/100 #100daysofquilting #applique #mothers #almostdone
Using the #coolmorning to get the #quilting started. Just a few minutes a day, before its #toohot . #giraffe #giraffebabyblanket #babyquilt #100dayproject #100daysofquilting #day78 #quiltinprogress
Sometimes you have to tidy up before you can make progress. First I'll iron, fold and file the fabric on the cutting table, then tackle the mess of thread, magazines, patterns and random junk on top of the whatever-you-call-it. I feel as though I'm nibbling around the edges of actually creating, but sometimes you just have to clear the decks. Day15/100 #100daysofquilting #whatamess #youshouldseetherestofit
All I know about Yvonne Porcella is that she was an art quilter who reveled in color and pattern. When I saw this at the library book sale the other day, I couldn't resist (only a dollar!). An artist's inspiration? Count me in! Day 14/100 #100daysofquilting #yvonneporcella #learnfromthebest
Yesterday's walk included an Indian pipe, ferns, a Fowler's toad, and this beautifully patterned beech bark. Gray and sage green quilt, maybe? Day 13/100 #100daysofquilting #inspirationiseverywhere #somanyquiltssolittletime
Won these blocks plus two more at last night's guild meeting. Fascinating how different layouts result in very different looks. Hmm, how shall I arrange them? Day 13/100 #100daysofquilting #fredericksburgmqg #orangeandgrey
A little blurry, in bad light, but all 4 #giraffe #blocks are #sewn together into an adorable little #babyblanket . #day74 #100daysofquilting #100dayproject
Just a few of the quilts on display for show and tell at tonight's quilt guild meeting. So much inspiration! Day 12/100 #100daysofquilting #fredericksburgmqg #igotnothin
