Project #2 for the year is done: K's Pokequilt.*throws confetti*I've made a decision that the next quilt that I'm doing, I am going to send it out to be quilted because I find it to be waaaaay too stressful to do. It will cost a bit of money, but it's worth it. 😀 A's quilt… Continue reading WIP Wednesday: The End and a New Start
I finally finished the back of K's quilt which means I'll actually be able to start quilting now. Woot!My youngest daughter took one look at it and said, "It looks like Super Smash Bros." LOL, I guess it does.
The Pokequilt is done! *cue choir singing*Funny story, when I started piecing the quilt together last week, I kept looking at my pile of 1.75" squares and thinking, "Dude, there are a lot of squares left". Then I dismissed it because, really, math was never my strong suit. Then, after I pieced together the 35… Continue reading Week 6: The Pokequilt (aka WIP Wednesday)

Well, I've kept my foot to the foot pedal and I've made some pretty good progress on this quilt. Of course, K wants to know why it's taking "so long" for me to finish it. My answer is always the same: 1.700 squares, kid.So, I managed to make all the rows for the 17 block… Continue reading The Pokequilt!
So, K's quilt consists of about a million squares (OK, more like 1,700) and two block designs (cleverly named Block A and Block B). Without further ado, I present an incomplete Block A. I'm making all of the rows for Block A and Block B before I actually piece them together, but it's nice to… Continue reading Quilting Update
