#1 quilt for 2016

This quilt which I named "Kaffe's Bakery" is at the shop. The large print is a Kaffe fabric and the pattern is from Modern Relish called Bioche and Bagguette. See where I got the name?!?

is from Bonnie Hunter's pattern, Dancing Nine Patch. Instead of scrappy 9 patches, mine are 2 colored, er, patterned.
This post is numbered 38, but I didn't include aprons, bags, etc. I finished this year. My grand totals are....(drum roll, please) Starts for 2015: 38 Finishes for 2015: 42 Hooray! I finished more than I started!! I am starting 2016 with only 23 WIPs---down from 36 in 2013 (my highest). We will see if I can keep up the momentum...don't hold your breath!

This one is on the spare bed now--in time for Christmas!
Now I've got to get the one for my bed quilted and bound.

is made from Moda 10", 5" and 2.5" squares sewn together with raw edges out, higgledy piggledy. The line is French General, hence its name: French General Squared. When washed a few times it will be all lovely and fray-y.

Friday visitors

I looked out the kitchen window and saw these two at the front door, so grabbed my phone and took pictures through the glass in the foyer. I'm sure the little bull won't be around when he's legal!!
And thanks to them, my pansies were cut back!!

These two are in the shop--fun patterns!
I've been at camp for a crafter's retreat this week and was very productive (for a change!) The blocks for 4 quilts were pieced, a 5 year old started on hand piecing and much fun and fellowship was enjoyed.

Design Wall Monday and #32

#32 was gifted on Sunday without ever having a photo of it :( But it was a very happy, PINK lap quilt for a little girl who likes pink. Her older sister received a purple one that was made last year...or so... (I can't remember!). And this is on my wall:
It is the bottom half of the top before borders. The top half is put together already. This one will be large enough for my bed (which brings to mind the question DH foolishly once asked me..."How many quilts do we need for our bed?") Hmmpf!

is the Seasonal Tablerunner by Judy Niemeyer started in November 2008. Another one that just needed quilting and binding. (By the way, I made twice as much bias binding than I needed! :( )

is from a pattern called Brioche & Baguette by Modern Quilt Relish in the throw size.
The background is a dark rich gold--this photo is washed out looking! And its made of Batiks so what's not to love?!? I quilted it with Superior Omni with Bottomline in the bobbin. Pattern is Splash. All the fabric except the backing was purchased just for this one, so fabric from stash was very minimal :(

is a tablerunner I started in Jan 2008 in an inset circles class taught by Jan Wallace. It just need to be quilted.....
