Easy Fat Quarter Cot Quilt

This was a very easy pattern to do and fun because it went so fast!!!!  Pattern is from Craftsy and is called Easy Fat Quarter Cot Quilt.  It is free!  Going to make several of these since it uses just 6 fat quarters.  I have lots of packs of 6 fat quarters!!!!  Next time, I'll plan the placement of colors a little better!!!!

Second Skateboard Quilt

  This is my second Skateboard quilt.  So much fun putting these together.  Thanks to my dear friend Debi for giving me the 3.5" x 6.5" squares.  This pattern is in the last issue of BLOCK Magazine put out by the Missouri Quilt Company.  This is a great magazine with no ads in it and each time (every other month) you get 10 patterns.  They are great patterns.  I'm really excited to be planning a trip to Missouri Quilt Company in Hamilton, Missouri sometime this summer.
.  From what I have read, they have 6 quilt shops open in downtown Hamilton.  There may be more, since I think they opened up 2 more just last week.  Can you tell I am excited??!!!

This quilt will go to Project Linus.

Courtyard Quilt

Courtyard quilt is a free pattern from Cloud 9 fabrics.  I used up all my leftover Joel Dewberry fabrics from a couple of quilts I did this Spring.  Felt good to empty out a box!  Now on to the next project!  My friend, Debi gave me a bag with 400+   3.5" x 6.5" rectangles of fabric.  I already used some  in the skateboard quilt I made last week.  think I will try Bonnie Hunter's pattern "Lozenges" and use some of them up!!!

Musical Notes Quiltets


 
 Got this pattern and holder in Houston last fall.  I like classical music and thought this  was a good pattern to show that.

We are having rain and lots of it here in North Texas.   Finally having sunshine the last 2 days.  Many roads are still closed.  I feel so sorry for the people who have flooding of their homes and businesses.

Skateboards

I finished the skateboard quilt.  It is in the latest copy of BLOCK magazine. Thanks Debi for the fabric rectangles!!  She gave away bags of over 400 pieces of fabric cut in to 3.5 x 6.5 inches. Since the rectangles were a different size than the ones in the pattern, I had to re-size the other pieces so everything fit together.  Good challenge for my brain!!!!  This one will go to
Project Linus

Quilt of Valor and Farm Girl Vintage both finished!

.
 I made a Quilt of Valor for our friend, Steve, in appreciation of his service during the Vietnam War.  The kit was from Fons and Porter
.This quilt is Farm Girl Vintage from Lori Holt's book by the same name.  Lots of little squares, but fun to do.  This one is now ready to be quilted.


Summer temps are back in North Texas, so glad for the A/C!  But flowers are blooming and the roses are beautiful.
