Other Projects in the Pile (…….Oh Yeah, There’s More!)

Kansas Trouble (no not the fabric line)

This one has been around a long time.  All hand pieced.  I’ve taken little bags of “trouble” with me for years it seems.  I have the center finished but now I’m working on the next border which is similar blocks only in a different position.   This is one of those that you shake your head and say “”What was I thinking!”

Floating Stars

This is basically 2 1/2″ squares.  I just finished piecing the top and now I need to figure out the borders.  I love the way this came out.  My grandson looked at it and said, “Grandma, I see the stars!”  But he saw different stars than I did.  He saw the wonky stars.  What do you see?  Stars?  Wonky Stars? Stripes?  Interesting!

Scrappy Hearts for Samantha

I made this several years ago and it still needs to be quilted.  Someday I hope to give it to my granddaughter.  I saw the pattern hanging in a quilt shop and came home and drew up the block.  It’s all made with 2″ squares

Whirl-A-Jig

I love this pattern.  It makes me happy to look at all the bright colors.  Yes, it’s still in the pile.  It needs a border and then to be quilted.

Pinwheels with Scrappy Sashing

This was a fun thing to do.  It looks so busy but after it is quilted I’m thinking those pinwheels will just pop!

Nine Patch Baskets

My guild had a nine patch exchange.  Many could not think of what to do with them so I made up this top to show that even the ugliest nine patches can look great.  This is on the quilting pile.  Will make someone a nice snuggle-y/lap quilt.

Strippy Strings

What to do with all those strips of strings!  Cut them up into blocks and sew them together!  Still needs to be quilted tho.
