Ghastlie wonky blocks

I got most of the fabrics for a commissioned quilt on Friday and I got right to work making wonky blocks. I guess you could say they are wonky 'courthouse steps'.  I don't normally do ''wonky'', but these were addicting I tell ya!  

The characters are just something else :)

I won't share all the blocks, I want a little bit of a surprise for my customer! ::::waves ''hi Crystal!!"::::
Most of the blocks are to this point, and some will only get one more narrow round of print, some will get two (the smaller blocks).  The last round will be what 'squares' up the blocks so they can be sewn together with a sashing the same print as the last round on the blocks.

A Ghastlie beginning

The beginning of a new quilt project for a customer!  It's going to be Ghastlie!

Tiny scrappy trips around the world

Working on these tiny scrappy trips blocks again - I have fabric for a customer quilt coming , so it will be put away again soon though.  This is my basic plan for the quilt I think:
The fabrics in the honey buns is Mill House Inn, so I know I'll never find a reasonably priced print from that line to use as the center and border - but I'll just find something that works.

A sneak peek at the quilt along!

My quilt-along quilt is complete and we are working on putting together the posts for the quilt along!  I thought I'd give you a teeny sneak peek :)

The backing shows the quilting really well!  And I looove the post wash crinkles!

This is all you get of the front though, hehe :)  Sorry!

This is the bundle I used, which is coming out very soon!

A quilt along coming soon

I just wanted to give you a heads up, that I am going to have my very first quilt along!  It starts soon, and there will be a week between fabric announcement requirements and cutting directions.  The directions will be posted over on the Bear Creek Quilting blog - I will let you know when :)

I started with this lovely FQB of ''Ambleside'' by Brenda Riddle for Moda.  OH.  MY.

I will post an update when everything is ready! :)

American Jane quilt top done

I have completed my American Jane quilt top using the Scrappy Irish Chain pattern I shared on Moda Bake Shop.

I pieced a backing with the red multi-color Pezzy Print and scraps from the front!  EEEEE!  I am in LOVE!  I will be basting this quilt and another one I am working on for a project for Bear Creek Quilting this week.  I will be quilting the Bear Creek quilt first, then I will finish this one.  I think I will quilt it in red thread with a simple straight line quilting on the diagonal (same as the original Scrappy Irish Chain one in Daysail/April Showers).
