Saturday Sampler–Out of the Box with Kaffe

I finally finished the Saturday Sampler quilt that is finishing up next month – May.  The theme for this series was Out of the Box.  We encouraged people to try something different and had three options.  Bonnie and Camille, Blue and Yellow and Kaffe.  I worked on the Kaffe one all year and got it quilted last week.  I finished up the binding on Thursday so it is complete now.

Here is the Bonnie and Camille quilt before quilting.

There were 12 blocks – one for each month and then we had 4 optional blocks that were available.  We set them all the same way with a different border for the Bonnie and Camille top.  For the other two we are offering a 12 block setting (Kaffe) or a 16 block setting (Blue and Yellow).  I used the extra four blocks on the back of the quilt.

Sampler Savvy - Class 3

Lots of work was done at class on Wednesday. Everyone is excited to learn EPP and make a GFG flower that we will appliqué to a background. 

We also worked on a Spool block. Here is some of the homework.

A few people started to put sashing and block borders on.  Since we are on the second row of the quilt, the first row can be put together.

Allatoona BOM Tomorrow

I finished up my blocks for the monthly BOM meeting for tomorrow.  Here are all my blocks so far.

0415 My Blocks

I can’t wait to see all the other blocks.  I am still trying to decide on my sashing choices.  First there is a small 1/2 inch finished border around each block and then a checkerboard of two fabrics between each block and around the outside.  I have a bright lime green that I think will be the little border and then I have black/white polka dots and white/black polka dots for the checkerboard – it finishes at 1 inch square so there will be about a million of them.

Magical Slice and Dice

Magical Slice and Dice is one of my sister Robin’s patterns and I taught it at Tiny Stitches a couple of months ago.  Rhona was in the class and made a set of blocks that she hated!  She thought they were really ugly.  She hated them so much that she bought new fabric to remake the quilt and gave me the set of blocks.  I told her that they were great but she didn’t believe me.

At the recent retreat, I put her “ugly” blocks into a quilt – here it is.

0415 Rhona's Blue Quilt

Ugly?  I don’t think so!  I showed it to Rhona and she loves it now!  Of course I gave it back to her since she was so excited and pleased with the final result.

By the way, here is the other version she made.

I like this one also.  What do you think?

UFO Number 8

I finished my UFO #8 in time for the guild meeting on Tuesday.  Thanks to Nancy, all the bad quilting was taken out.  I then quilted it again, got the label and binding on and was ready to show it at the meeting.

0415 UFO #8 Back

This is the back of the quilt and includes one of the panels that I used for the front.

0415 UFO #8 Finished

I really like how it turned out!

I also took a photo of UFO # 6 from last month.

0315 UFO 6 Finished

The UFO for next month is #2 – here it is now.

0115 UFO #2 - Bright Stripst

The top is made so I have to get a backing, quilt, bind and label it.
