Black and White bee blocks — I don’t know the name, but it’s 8 HSTs plus a solid square in the middle. Easy peasy.
Batik jelly roll quilt — the pattern came free with the jelly roll and is by Cozy Quilt Designs, but I can’t see one exactly like it on their website. It’s very similar to the Simplicity pattern, though that one looks like it maybe uses 2 jelly rolls to have the contrasting colour.
Wolf Cushion — I don’t know who designed these cross-stitch patterns, though I should probably find out. Stitched by my sister, the HST cushion pattern is just random.org deciding if the angle will go left or right, colour placement decisions were made by which block I picked up and which direction let the seam allowances nest, with a tiny bit of adjustment made to keep certain colours spread around a little bit evenly
In which I show off some bee blocks [Scrap Jar Star from Gigi’s Thimble], a finished cushion cover with cross-stitch by my sister [Pattern just random HSTs in two sizes], progress on my Trinket Stitch-a-long [Trinket by Alison Glass] and a finished quilt top [Alternate Bear Paw, self-drafted pattern from a drawing by Anne of Play Crafts].
In which I show my finished Kite Flight quilt, a couple boxy zipper pouches, a couple pocket pouches, and some bee blocks.
I filmed all of this by mistake in portrait, which Movie Maker will not edit, so I used a different video editor to crop the video down to something nearly a normal aspect ratio (but, like, the editor doesn’t let you go to any preset, so I just had to guess what looked close to normal) and part of the problem with doing that is that it really messed up the quality of the video. I filmed this on Monday and had thought I’d just record again today, but the temperature dropped a lot over night and it’s far too chilly and windy to stand outside and film it again. So. Bad quality video. And I forgot to take pictures of the quilt while I was out there, so I can’t even put in pictures for you to see! I’ll post pictures another time though!
In which I show 4 quilts, one unfinished one by me, one by my Grandma, one by my mom, and one by my friend’s mother-in-law.
Quilt 1: Pattern is Kite Flight, which is a free pattern from Robert Kaufman. The fabrics are from a Robert Kaufman Kona roll up of Snow and one of what was called New Colors, I think back in 2014 or so. The borders are my own addition to make it a more reasonable size by adding 10 inches to either side of what is otherwise a long, narrow quilt.
Quilt 2: A traditional flower basket quilt, pieced and quilted by my grandma.
Quilt 3: A bog standard nine patch quilt, pieced by my mom, quilted and bound by me.
Quilt 4: Pattern is Bento Box, though these blocks are maybe 15″ or 18″ blocks (haven’t got it in front of me to check) rather than the 12″ in the linked pattern. This was pieced by a friend’s mother-in-law, was quilted by Jason Blackmore of Love Shack Quilts, and was bound by me. I finished this a while ago now and still need to get ahold of my friend to see when I can drop this quilt off.
In which I show some things I’ve been working on and also talk about the new animal in my life. The blue and orange quilt is the Cy Star quilt from CornerCurveQuilts.com. The Summer Sampler is the 2020 pattern from SwimBikeQuilt.com or LeeHeinrichShop.com or FreshLemonsQuilts.com. The Grassy Creek Mystery Quilt is from QuiltvilleBlogspot.com. The quilting idea is called “Road Maps” from Helen Godden and can be found on YouTube.
