Monday Making

This week I have been making log cabins.
Free style!!

This quilt top has been unfinished for quite a while now.
I just added the appliqué on the still needs some little circles.
Then I’ll add some more free style log cabins to get it bigger.
Queen sized??   Maybe.

I played with strings this week.
Don't you LOVE string quilts?

They are definitely one of my favorite kinds of quilts.

This nine patch of strings was made using 6" squares
and 6" half square triangles I made using a foundation.
Sometimes I use a foundation and sometimes I don't.

My old phone book contains the perfect foundation paper.
I hope it never runs out!

Here's a small section of a quilt top that is still waiting to be quilted.

I did a little size comparison this week.

Have you every changed a block by just 1/2”?
It is truly amazing how much that 1/2" changes the finished size!

I compared 16 patch blocks using
1 1/2”, 2” and 2 1/2” squares.  

This is an oldie but goodie using 2” squares.
After the comparison....I don't think I'll be using anything smaller!

A small glimpse at my postage stamp quilt....queen sized.

I played with some old favorites this week.

This one is called “patience” when using 9 patches.
I made mine with 7 patches...but the look is the same.

Alternating the lights and darks makes a beautiful quilt pattern!

I also tried this rolling stone block in a few colors.
And.......I had to make some SCRAPPY!

Both of these blocks were featured on
my youtube channel this week.

I am working on a new quilt this week!

Beginnings are the BEST.
 This one is for a high school graduate.

I have been making and giving graduation quilts for a long time now.
Some years it is a group project....but sadly this year that isn’t the case.

This recipient likes blue, green, gray and purple.
How did my scraps do with that??
