quilt monday

Way back in 2013(January to be precise), I made a granny square quilt. You can see it here. I've kept the remaining 2.5inch square and been trying to find something to make. I did make a ChurnDash quilt but it hardly made a dent in the squares. 

Until I found this.

I could not love this more. I saw that a lot don't I?

Such a great way to use up 2.5inch squares. 
If I had had more, I would have gone bigger no question.

And I got to try out a new panto for it as well.

Those crisp white stars. The hint of red...

Happy Monday!

This quilt.
 I literally could not love this quilt more. This was the block I had chose for the 2016 True North bee, the Ohio star. I requested colours in red, teal or black/grey and the choice of 3 different  block sizes. I wasn't entirely sure what I would end up with to be honest.

Once I started on my 2017 True North quilt, I  thought I could use these blocks as part of the backing on the new quilt. But when I was fiddling with layouts, something clicked and this is what I ended with.

I ended up having to make one 12inch block and one 6inch which worked out well in my opinion lol.

I found the black dottie binding on a girls shopping day. I almost didn't use it but glad I went ahead. I think it really finishes the quilt right off.

The quilting is one of my new favourites, Malachite

Isn't it pretty? I could stare at this all day.

Just perfection.


I got so far behind in my TrueNorth bee blocks that it's embarrassing. 
Now in my defense, one of the blocks has close to 100 pieces and is taking on average 2hrs to complete. For ONE block. Eek! 

So of course I started with the easy blocks to catch up with.

These were fun and a great stash buster.

I think I'm going to have to steal the idea to request Christmas block for a Christmas quilt next round.

In the midst of cleaning up to get going on these blocks, I found this bunny runner I had started and obviously never finished. I had all but one of the bunnies finished. They could not be cuter! Pattern can be found here

I've been having a terrible time with my computer; I filled up my memory and can't access my pictures. I take LOTS of pictures lol.

I was going through my pictures when I found these and realized I had never shown them. So some Christmas in April today :)

I saw a block posted somewhere online last fall and knew I needed to make these. I'm pretty sure it took longer to hunt down the Christmas fabrics than it did to actually make the runners. 

Seriously, how cute are these? 

I kept the quilting simple and went with a meander.

I looooooove these fabrics.

I absolutely love how these turned out. I can see this being a popular go-to Christmas gift.
