Sampler Quilt

Last year, I started several projects at the beginning of the year.  One was a combination of the Craftsy BOM from 2012, and Amy Gibson's Sugar Block Club.  It was my intention to make a queen sized sampler quilt.  I finally caught up with some new projects, and so decided to get back to my Sampler quilt.  I had 21 blocks, and decided I needed 30, so these are the other 9.  Some are from the original project, and a few are blocks that I liked and decided to do rather than paper piece, or other things that I haven't enjoyed that much.  I plan to do sashing and cornerstones and borders, so I'm not sure how fare I'll get before Bonnie's 2014 mystery.  My house is needing attention, and I MUST make that a priority.

Sugar Block Club and Nabby's Dowry

My niece and her children arrived yesterday, it was very good to see them, and we are going to Ikea today, so not much sewing will be going on for the next couple of days, but I did get my Sugar Block club for July done with a couple of days to spare.

This morning I got up early, as I do most mornings, and I did block 3 of the Nabby's Dowry quilt along.  Here are blocks 1, 2, and 3 all in a row.  I feel so virtuous when I am using up my bonus HSTs.

BOM's Caught up for Now, Yay!

It's coming along.
The June Craftsy BOM 2013 is wrinkly but done.  I don't think that y seams will ever be my favorite.  I don't worry a whole lot about a few wrinkles, as I aspire to the crinkly look in my quilts, and I figure that after washing they'll blend right in.  I do need to improve my pressing though.  Now, I'm a little ahead of the game, I can relax tomorrow and go with my daughter and grandson to see my brothers and my nephew, I'm looking forward to a nice day.  Monday will be for the Deck-ade the Halls block and the rest of the month I can finally start on the barns and table topper for my husbands dresser.  Can't believe I'm finally caught up for now.  I have no self control, I also bought the pattern for another project.  The Flower Patch Quilt Along, the pattern is Flower Patch from Green Fairy Quilts.   There's a Flickr group, too.  It's here.
June Block A, thank goodness these were easy ones.  Craftsy BOM June 2012

Block B, blurry, sorry.

I have 18 blocks now toward my Queen sized quilt from the Sugar Block Club and Craftsy BOM 2012.  These are the latest 3.
Sugar Block Club for June - Done.
The OKCMQG block of the month for June.  I live in Florida, not Oklahome, but they've been kind enough to share.

A Little Progress and Plans

I pretty much wasted 2 days watching quilting videos (they're like potato chips) and playing on the computer, but this morning I got some cutting done.  I'm ready now to start sewing on the Craftsy Re-piecing the Past, the Craftsy 2012 BOM, the OKCMQG BOM, the Sugar Block Club BOM and the Craftsy 2013 BOM.   It would be really nice if I were to have them finished by Monday and then I could concentrate on the Deck-ade the Halls step 2 and maybe have the rest of the month to concentrate on the Quilty Barn Along and making a topper for my husband's dresser.

April and May Sugar Block Club

Whew.....  Just 3 more blocks and I'll finally be caught up with RSC and BOM's.  Two more blocks to replace the April Craftsy BOM hexi blocks, and the house block for the Civil war Quilt.

March Sugar Block Club and March Craftsy BOM 2012

OOps, I didn't look at the instructions and I turned a diamond into an X. 

March Sugar Block Club was more fancy making than it is fancy looking. 

This one is wrong too, but it was on purpose.  It was supposed to be a star, but I turned it into a cross or X to be consistent.

The March Craftsy BOM 2012 and the March Sugar Block club.

For fun and because 9 is a nice even quilting number, I thought I'd see what January, February and March would look like.  Sugar Block club blocks are up and down the middle.  I'm hoping that my light pink background and the gray will keep the red and blue from making it into a patriotic quilt and make it more unisex on the feminine side for DH and my bedroom.

February Sugar Block Club and Craftsy BOM 2012

Not perfect, but done.  I'm not crazy about paper piecing.

Only one more block to do and then I'm working on a lap quilt for a nurse who was particularly helpful to DH in the hospital.  Guess my Easy Street and Scrap Vomit can wait a little while.
