Damons Quilt

You may remember this quilt that I blogged about last month,
its for my nephew Damon who is a student at 
Sacramento State University.  He is a Mechanical Engineer Student.

I decided to go very masculine with his quilt and use recycled 
mens shirts and make string blocks...

I even talked his brother into helping me!
This is Damons younger brother Zane...he is also a student at
Sacramento State.  He loves to come and hang out with his crazy 
Aunt Julianne on the I put him to work!  Its 
fantastic to see this 6' 3" handsome guy sewing! His 
grandmother would be so proud!

Probably needless to say, he is a dork just like me...
must be genetic! LOL!

He completed several blocks...and he did a great job!
I was so thankful for the help, lord knows I have a ton of stuff to 
get done for craft fairs and the holidays! He was a big help to me!

Heres where we left off...I put all of our blocks together 
and we have a good size top, now I just need to figure 
out borders and then wrestle with the longarm!  

Heres a close up...its pretty neat looking!  
I know Damon will love it, hes been wanting a new quilt
for quite a while and I know he will be thrilled!

Heres my block for my partner in the 
QBSA Paper Pieced group for November,
this one is for Kerry in Australia..she requested 
any block in a variety of greens, 
Jade, Mint, Bottle Green, Teal Etc with Grey.

Then my partner Wendy, also from Australia
 in the QBSA 12" group requested any block in
Mushroom, Taupe, Sands & Tans...
so I killed two birds with one stone and made her the same block...

Done and in the mail, they should have them by now!

Sisters Choice

I was watching Quilt Cam with Bonnie Hunter a few 
episodes ago and she was making one of her 
free patterns...Sisters Choice.  Needless to say,
I got a itch and tickle and a cramp and started one immediately.
Is anyone surprised by that?
I decided to do all different scraps for the Orange Star points...the 9 patches are all random scraps as are the neutrals!!

Heres 42 blocks all put together....I love it!

A close up of all this Scrapalicious Deliciousness!!

I love you Bonnie Hunter!!  I do I do!!

Block Lotto Quilt Top complete!

These are the Blue Bar blocks that I won in the
Block Lotto @

This top was completed with scraps and bits
from my stash for the borders, didn't cost me a dime!
I love all the different blues...time to get it on
the dreaded longarm frame!!

Another finish coming up!

My pal Kathy of Kathys Quilting Blog
turned me onto the Block Lotto. She and I are
always getting each other into Quilty trouble, but honestly I
think neither of us would have it any other way!
She is truly a "sister from another mister" of these days I
hope to get to meet her!

Awesome quilters do to it! I know it will be amazing!

Grand Illusion Fabric Pull Update

I am getting ready for the new 
Bonnie Hunter Mystery!! 


Since I am not a huge fan of lots of yellow in a 
quilt, I have decided to use this toffee color instead.

I also added some plums to my pink pile...I think its looking 
pretty good, cant wait to get started!

Thanks Bonnie!
Looking forward to another gorgeous quilt!
