Scrappy Mountain Majesties Quilt Tops Finished

Now just to find the time to get them quilted.  I still can’t decide which one I like best but I think I probably like the more scrappy one slightly more.  Fun what different quilts turn out from the same fabrics.

Beginning Machine Piecing–Class Eight–Graduation

We had a wonderful time on Monday night.  Since it was the last class, we had a little party.  I even made homemade ice cream and the students brought in cookies, cupcakes, banana bread and strawberries.  We got at least some of the borders on their quilts.  Here they are.

Design Wall Monday–May 19, 2014

Here is my design wall from last Monday.


Here is is today!


As you can probably tell, I mixed up each of the sections and kept the colors together.  I need to get a few more rows done but I think I like this version – maybe better.  When I teach this in July, I will have two different samples to show so that should be fun.

The pattern is Scrappy Mountain Majesties from Bonnie Hunter with help from Carol for inspiration.

For more design walls, go to Patchwork Times.

Design Wall Monday–May 12, 2014

I got the top for Scrappy Mountain Majesties finished at Bonnie Hunter club yesterday.  Here it is on the shop’s design wall.


I had planned on making it larger but decided to get it finished instead.  I picked out the two borders so just have to get them on this week.  I still have more fabrics cut out and plan on making another top with the fabrics mixed up within each block – thanks Carol for the idea!

Quilty Fun Club

Last night was Quilty Fun club night.  As usual, there was a lot of inspiration and fun.

First, here are the rows we worked on last month – butterflies!

0514 Butterfly Rows

You can also see the block we are working on for next month – Chubby Chevrons towards the middle.  This is my sample row.

Lori recommends that you use a stiletto for making sure the chubby chevrons seams match. So I brought the stuff to make one for each person.  Here are the completed ones.

Jeanne is so excited about the quilt that she worked ahead and put part of the quilt together.

Quilty Wishes from Tiny Stitches

Early in the year I decide to make a shop sample using Sweetwater's Wishes line of fabric and one of their patterns. I took fabric to our January retreat and asked each person to put a quilty type wish on fabric to be included in the quilt.  I had hoped to finish it in time for Shop Hop. Because of Bill's health problems, that didn't happen. 

After the Shop Hop was over, we had our guild retreat and I decided to focus on completing this quilt. Of course that is when Bill ended up in the hospital again - this time with a Gall Bladder attack amd it got put away again. 

Finally this week I finished it!  I quilted it yesterday and got the binding done today.  I am pleased with it.

It finished around 70 inches square. If you click on the photo to enlarge it, you might be able to read some of the wishes.  Many of them related to finishing UFOs but there are a lot of other interesting wishes.
