Finished another Christmas quilt kit from the bin of guilt.
I changed this one up from the pattern. It calls for appliqued snowflakes on the quilt; I'm leaving those off. I also changed the corners from 4 patches to a solid square.
I also did some playing with my table runner leftovers.
I'm still playing with layout ideas so this is on hold for right now. I am loving what it is for the moment though!
Hamels has been keeping me out of trouble(lol) with a bunch of their store samples to quilt up. Here is the lastest bunch of lovelies.
I absolutely l-o-v-e this quilt.

A simple yet striking disappearing 9 patch.

Can't go wrong with some Bunny Hill snowmen.

This quilt just screams fall.
|quilted with Morning Glory|
Love the little details.
Lastly, this stunning quilt.
The details in this quilt are stunning.
The applique is all wool.
I quilted it with a new pattern, Dandelion.
Love how the quilting compliments the piecing.
Thanks again Hamels!
I made two of these quilts. Posted the first one here.
This one is the bigger of the two; still find it hard to believe that I got two good sized quilts out of one layer cake!

I kept the quilting the same but I went with a striped binding; it might be my favorite part of the entire quilt.
I love how the somewhat curved quilting soften all the lines in the quilt.
Even kitty loves it lol.
I received an email from Mary at Workbox magazine asking if I would be interested in writing an article about my quilting journey. I will admit that at first I thought it was a joke; I've gotten similar emails in the past that were just spam mail. Not this time.
It took the longest time for me to get started on the article; it's really hard to write about yourself without sounding braggy imo. I went through numerous versions before I settled on the one I submitted.
Then Mary asked for pictures. I knew I had to have my friend Sheila take those.
I spoke to Mary last week and she told me that I made the cover of the issue. I thought she just meant my quilts.
I'm not sure if the magazine is available in North America; we've ordered a few extra copies online. For all my European readers; it's on newstands now!
Thanks again to Mary and Workbox Magazine. This was/is seriously such a thrill!!
Do you have one? What is a bin of guilt? It holds all the kits and precuts that I have bought, hoarded or been gifted over the years. The past few years I've been trying to do as many projects as possible to empty the bin out. And fill it back up again ;)
First project, this flannel Christmas quilt.
This was one of those projects that took a third of the time I thought it was going too. I really think the longest time will be spent doing the binding on this lol. I have some green flannel to back it with and I am looking forward to snuggling under this come Christmas.
Next, a random Bali pop. I have debated on what to do with this. I even thought of giving it away but than I saw the jelly roll jam quilts and that was it.
Lastly, another Christmas quilt. This one uses Kansas Troubles fabrics. I was hoping to finish it up but one more border needs added so you get just a snippet.
Fingers crossed I get it finished tonight.
I have one more Christmas quilt kit left than just a few more precuts and some UFOs. It's pretty exciting to see the bottom of my bin!
