Weekly Finish #40: Single Wedding Ring Quilt with Scallop Border

Image
Single Wedding Ring with Scallop Border Finished Size: 86" x 110" Here is the completed wedding quilt for Makenna that I posted about here . I love these floral fabrics which are mainly by Robyn Pandolph.  I still have enough in my stash to make myself a quilt.  The Single Wedding Ring block has 3" units and finishes at 15 inches.  This was my first time making a scallop border.  I watched a couple videos and ended up purchasing a specialty ruler from Quilt In A Day.  It definitely was worth the cost.   I also had to make bias binding - another first - for which I had to order more fabric.  Luckily, it arrived on Tuesday - just in time so I can finish the quilt before the end of the year.  I quilted it with E2E Folk Art heart design and used Warm & Natural batting. This is my 40th completed quilt project of 2022 and the last one for the year. I'm happy to join these linky parties.  Be sure to visit them to see what other quilters are sharing.

Weekly Finish #39: Raven Moon Stash Buster Quilt

Raven Moon Stash Buster Quilt Finished Size:  77" x 91" I LOVE this Halloween quilt with its ravens, skulls, and spider webs. It is the second quilt  I made this quilt for the 2022 Stash Buster Challenge by Border Creek Station using the Jericho Walls block.  Each block finishes at 10" and this quilt has 44 blocks. I finished the top at the end of October and posted about it here .  But I wasn't able to complete the quilt in time for Halloween.  That's okay cuz it's ready for next year! The E2E web quilt design with the spider (so cute!) was pre-installed in the Pro-Stitcher LITE for the Moxie.   The pieced backing has an all-over sugar skulls design by Robert Kaufman, and the batting is Warm & Natural.  And the label completes the quilt. I'm happy to join these linky parties.  Be sure to visit them to see what other quilters are sharing.

Weekly Finish #37 and #38: Foresta Fusion Simple Hearts and St. Patty's Picture Frame

Image
Foresta Fusion Simple Hearts Quilt   Finished Size: 52" x 60" This is another lap quilt completed for 2022.  I finished the top in February hoping I'd have the quilt completed by Valentine's Day but that sure didn't happen :) I posted about my progress here and here . I quilted it with Heart Triangles, an E2E design pre-installed in my Moxie. Each heart block is 6" and there are 49 blocks in a 7 x 7 setting. I used a floral backing and Warm & Natural batting. I love this quilt but will probably gift or donate it.  I plan to make another with 8-inch blocks which I plan to keep. St. Patty's Picture Frame Finished Size: 71" square Here's another top that I pieced in February and finally completed the quilt.  I was posted about my progress here . I was inspired by this quilt I found online and like much better than mine which is scrappier.   After I finished the top, I was okay with it but not thrilled.  I thought I would just keep it as a flim

Weekly Finish #36: Whatnots Club Midnight Wall Hanging

Image
  Whatnots Club Midnight Month 6 Tenth Simple Finished Size: 21" square Backing and Quilting Here's the little wall hanging that I pieced last month and posted about here .  It is from Kim Diehl's Simple Whatnots Club and is part of the 10th-anniversary edition. I'm not a big fan of miniature quilts but I love Kim Diehl's patterns and fabrics, and I really enjoyed making this one.  It only took a couple of days to piece and another day to quilt and bind.  Fast and easy. Sadly, all 8 kits of the 2022 Collection 11 are still sitting on a shelf waiting on me.  I'll have to try to squeeze a kit in between other projects in 2023. I'm happy to join these linky parties.  Be sure to visit them to see what other quilters are sharing.

Weekly Finish #35: Raiders NFL Team Quilt

Image
Raiders NFL Team Quilt Finished Size: 75" x 98" I made this quilt on the spur of the moment for my son-in-law who has congenital heart disease and is on the heart transplant list.  He recently had open heart surgery for a heart pump (LVAD) and had to spend his birthday in the hospital.   I decided to make this quilt for his birthday and to comfort him. He's been a fan of the Raiders since they were the Oakland Raiders and I knew he would appreciate the quilt. The pattern is "1st and 10" from McCall's Quilting and is free.  Click here for a pattern to make this quilt.  It was so fast and easy to make - I completed it in 10 days.   The quilting design is Touchdown, an E2E design from Urban Elementz.  The footballs, helmets, and stars are perfect. The backing is a mottled gray which nicely shows off the quilting design. My daughter and son-in-law live in Kentucky, so I had to send it to him via UPS.  I was a little bit nervous but it arrived safe and sound.
