Quilting Blues

My niece is getting married!  Of course , time for a quilt!!
But she loves blue.  

I realize that I don't have any blue in my stash!  Really, almost nothing!  And when I look at all my quilts, there is very little blue, almost none, in any of them.  A real eye opener!

So off to a friendly quilt store..Prairie Chicks...and stock up :)  They had a great FQ bundle of blues with a little beige/tan mixed in...perfect!   "Grand Traverse Bay" by Minick & Simpson

But why stop there....so I had to buy a bit extra as well!

I needed something quick and easy, as I had to get this off to her soon...so just a simple block.  But it turned out lovely, I think.

The backing was quick and easy as well, This fabric added some interest without having to piece anything.

I quilted it quickly as well, with an all over teardrop...my go-to quick and easy pattern...
So it is finished and off to Ontario for the wedding.

And as it turns out, I did get a bit carried away buying fabric, and had enough to make a second quilt!  Bonus!!  So I tried out my first "Plus Quilt"  Such fun! Pictures of that one another day!

Not sure what I will do with the second one, when it is finished, but my grandson might need one :)

  1. The members of the Southeast Regional Middle East and Islamic Studies Seminar (SERMEISS) have for more than a decade listened patiently to countless discussions of Jordanian politics, new jordans, and have always provided a warm, welcoming, and insightful forum for the analysis of all things about the Middle East. Among the founders of that great organization, I especially thank Herb and Taffy Bodman, who dragged me along to my first SERMEISS meeting in 1990 and who have helped keep me actively involved ever since.

    My cat, Kimba, both helped and hindered the writing process by occasionally strolling across my computer keyboard or randomly swatting at the “delete" key. I would like to blame him for any errors, jordan releases, but that probably wouldn’t be convincing, so apparently I will have to take all responsibility.

    Most of all. I thank my wife, Alison, for her unwavering warmth and support and for putting up with the many stages of this project and helping me see it to fruition. http://www.cheapjordanreleases.com
