Grand Illusion Quilt Top

I finally finished my Bonnie Hunter's Grand Illusion top yesterday.  I kept procrastinating about finishing it, but finally worked on the borders over the weekend.  I am so very glad I finished it.  Loved doing it, but it was a little work and decided I had put too much into it not to finish.  Now I need to press it, make the backing and get it quilted.  Thank you Bonnie Hunter for sharing this with everyone.

I have my challenge done for the retreat next week. There are 6 of us and in this challenge we had to use 6 fabrics, but we could use others if we wanted to. So here is my challenge I am submitting.

Guild BOM blocks

Here are the  last two BOM blocks for the Guild.  Now I still have to do them for me. I think I have an idea on how to set them together, but first I need to go back to Quiltville's Mystery.

Not a whole Lot

This week I had a block  row in the middle of the MQ turned the wrong way in two places, so I had to correct those. Still have to put on the borders. I think when I saw how the quilt was to be, I slowed down.  Not knowing made me do the clues faster.  I will post a picture when I get it finished.  And I have seen this basket many times, so I decided to make it.  I really did not get much done this week.

Happy 2015 New Year

Happy New Year.  With the New Year starting tomorrow several thoughts come in my mind.  My love for family is always strong along with faith in God.  Those will never change.  In 2014 I only rented the longarm At Beth's Quilt Shop three times.  I still have a lot of quilt tops to do, so during 2015 I plan to get more than three tops quilted.  I would like to set a goal of quilting five quilt tops.  In 2014 my goal was to use more scraps.  Bonnie Hunter of Quiltville is my inspiration for that.  My plan for 2015 is to still work on my scraps as Bonnie's ideas are wonderful.  In 2014 I used my embroidery machine very little.  In 2015 I want to incorporate more embroidery designs into my quilts. In 2014 I did not really do any new techniques in quilting, so in 2015 I would like to learn some new ones. One  more added thought, working with scraps does not mean I will stop shopping for fabric as I know that will never happen, however I want to shop for colors that are out of my normal color range. So that is about it for thoughts of 2015.  Not real goals, but thoughts of  happy thoughts and ideas.  Happy New Year y'all.
