Indian Trails - RSC16 con't

I have been sharing parts of this quilt during the RSC16 . I called it a modified indian hatchet.  It now has an official name, Indian Trails.  During a quilting time, I spread it out to count how many black and white squares it had, as I am FMQ in that area which is alot of stop and start. You know when you get something in your head, it sometimes just wont go away.

So DD (dear dog) Kody wasted no time claiming his spot.  Normally I don't let him on my fabric or quilts.



This is the top, before border fabric.  I have some piecing to do this week then I am anxious to get back to quilting on this one.  It is so colorful, it makes me smile.

Today I'm linking up with Connie  at  Freemotion By The River.              and

Wednesday, linking up with  Susan at Quilt Fabrication  and  Lorna at Sew Fresh Quilts.

Be sure to visit these sites to see what other quilters are sharing today.

THanks so much for stopping by.

OMG - a KISS quilt

I took a few days to consider what my OMG (one monthly goal) would be.  There were so many choices!  I decided to finish a KISS quilt,  free pattern  HERE   (scroll down to the quilt instructions).  Actually, I have to start it too,  It was cut from stash last week.  I cut up 4 kits for this handy pattern.  I will make some and donate some kits to quilt club  for our child comfort quilts mission.




I'm joining the January link-up with Elm Street Quilts for the OMG challenge.  You can also take part by joining  HERE and you can always find your way there by clicking the icon in my left sidebar.

and for more party fun, I'm linking up with Lorna at Sew Fresh Quilts  and Susan at Quilt Fabrication.   Be sure to visit all these sites to see what other creative quilters are working on today.

Thanks so much for stopping by.

Vintage Bloom - OMG finished

My one monthly goal OMG for December was to quilt and bind the Vintage Bloom quilt as promised here     http://scrapboxquilts.blogspot.com/2016/12/omg-vintage-blooms-last-hurrah.html.  I linked up with  Elm Street Quilts  http://www.elmstreetquilts.com/2016/12/one-monthly-goal-december-linkup.html


Now for the great finish,  this quilt is hand embroidered, machine stitched and quilted.  It measures 62 by 71.  It is a free project at sentimentalstitches.net this year.  It's hard to photograph the delicate embroidery, it didn't show up very well.


Here is the back, there is even a label.



I'm linking up with Patty at Elm Street Quilts for the December finish.  I can't wait to check out everyone else's progress.

Also linking up with Susan of Quilt Fabrication  and  Lorna of  Sew Fresh Quilts.  Visit these sites to see what other creative quilters are sharing today.

Let's ring in the new year with more fabulous quilt plans.
