Happy Quilting Stars Quilt-Along Table Runner

Posted Sunday, September 25th, 2011 in My Projects, Scrap Quilts, table runner | Read More

This table runner was made of scraps from the Modern Row Robin quilt-along that I participated in earlier this summer.  The binding will  be scrappy.

I finished this top last evening to take a break from the Double Wedding Ring quilt that has consumed my sewing time this summer.

And now…. the final row. I machine appliqued the hexagons after fusing them to the row.  I plan to put the rows together next weekend and add a small border.

City Girl Row Robin – Week 4

Posted Friday, July 29th, 2011 in baby quilt | Read More

This week I decided to make all the blocks the same.  Some of them are a bit wonky. The pattern suggested cutting the final blocks at an angle. The final border was an inch larger than the finished block so I had to square it up to a 12 inch finished square.

The final row will be posted on Monday. I hope to work on it next Wednesday. See you next week!

Next week I will decide on the final placement of the rows.

Modern Row Robin Quilt Along – Week 3

Posted Friday, July 22nd, 2011 in baby quilt | Read More

I have had a very busy week and didn’t have time to quilt until Friday. This week we are making different sized houses. I took the easy way and made each house from just one fabric. This row has a large amount of white space. This will require some special quilting. I haven’t joined the rows at this time. I may want to rearrange the placement of the rows after I see the last two rows.

This is Row 3 – House Block

Unless there is a lot of white space in the next two rows, I plan to place the House Row in the center of the quilt.

Modern Row Robin Quilt Along

Posted Friday, July 15th, 2011 in baby quilt, Fabric Stash | Read More

Last week a quilting friend sent me an email with a link to a Row Robin that does not require exchanging rows with other quilters. Five bloggers are creating this  row quilt by posting a new row each Monday  for five weeks. I have completed two rows at this time.  I am using fat quarters from  Moda’s City Girl line of fabric.

The finished quilt should be 48″ X 60″. I think it will make a nice baby quilt.

Row 1 was posted by  Lisa Marie from That Crazy Quilty Girl

Row 2 was  posted by Melissa from Lilac Lane

I did not place my row 2 blocks in the same order as the designer.  I want the  largest star to move  into the row from the end because  it only has four points, progressing down the row to the smallest stars.

If you would like to quilt along, visit the sites listed below.

Row 1- Lisa Marie from That Crazy Quilty Girl
Row 2- Melissa from Lilac Lane
Row 3- Heather and Megan from Quilt Story
Row 4- Anne Marie of Gen X Quilters
Row 5-Jen at ReannaLily Designs Blog

Check back next week to see my next row!
