It's ANOTHER colored pencil roll...
These are so fun to make!
(the attempt to be a cool photographer/blogger shot.)
The pattern is in Last Minute Patchwork & Quilted Gifts by Joelle Hoverson. I've made several and blogged about just a few projects out of this book--I love it!

Norene made these two stacked coin quilts.
I did feathers in the sashing and swirls and stars in the coins.
And here's the pink version. Same thing only different :) and bigger.
feathers and curly-Q's with a few hearts thrown in the mix. Love how these both turned out!

Maxine had me quilt this antique 9-patch quilt that her mother had made loooong ago, most likely out of her old clothing. Maxine added the 3 outer borders to make it bigger.
I had some issues with the blocks ballooning, so I realised that when quilting them, I needed to somehow spiral my way around the outside and work my way to the middle in order to keep it from puckering. So this rose design was what I ended up doing. It worked out pretty well!
I like a feathered border!
I'm so glad that this quilt is finally finished and can be used and appreciated, and not spend another year in a closet!

This is Katie's July 4th Row quilt! Isn't it amazing!? (sorry it's sideways! I can't get it to rotate for the life of me. argh.) The story is... about 3 years ago we got some friends and family quilters to do a row exchange. Each month you made a row to add to someone's quilt and it got passed around 8 times (8 months). You might recall another I've quilted here.
I had a lot of fun quilting it up. I only had 3 thread color changes--navy, cream and a pink/orange/yellow varigated one.
The row I made is the parade themed one. With the light yellow background.
I was pretty ambitious huh?!
Jan made the firecracker row. Love how this block turned out.
Katie made this row: Fireworks!
Plenty of American flags...
Becki (the over-achiever!) made this row. Paper-piece, applique, embroidery... Love it!
How cool is this block?
Where's my row quilt you may ask? Still in the box, unassembled, collecting dust.
It's on my finish-it-up list!!
