Here is another quilt pattern that I tested for TQPM . I really recommend getting a subscription to this online quilt magazine if you haven't already. Mocha Joe is designed by Isobel Meekins. This is a great project for beginners. Check it out in the December 2016 issue.
Wow November has just flown by. I have been busy, busy, busy. My husband who I love dearly, has a friend who asked about commissioning a quilt. He told him upfront what the fabric and quilting would cost and on top of that price would be the labor. This guy didn't blink an eye at the cost, he handed my husband $200.00 deposit for fabric to get started. The quilt has 4 different sports teams in it so I did a simple pattern. It is now at the quilters. As soon as it returns and I get the binding on, I will post a picture. Everyone have a great holiday. Thanks for stopping by.
This quilt pattern I tested for TQPM. When I was picking my fabrics I had a little person already in mind. The pattern is available in this month's (November 2016) issue of The Quilt Pattern Magazine. I did the binding in yellow and it has tractors on the back. Sorry I don't have a picture of it completed.
I finished my retreat top on Friday. I am so in love with this quilt. I have planned on getting it quilted by a professional longarm quilter. I'm thinking a falling snowflake pattern. Here it is, the picture doesn't do it justice.
I am a tester for The Quilt Pattern Magazine. I tested this pattern for them. This nice lap quilt has been published in this month's magazine (Oct. 2016 issue). It is a fairly easy pattern beginner/intermediate level.
Here are blocks B and C. I hope to get all the blocks finished today. Tomorrow is the last day of the virtual retreat. It has been a lot of fun. I should have the rows done tomorrow. Hopefully I can finish by this weekend.
I will be attending a virtual quilting retreat this week. It is being put on by TQPM. This is my first retreat of any kind. I cannot post any pictures until the finished product. To all my quilty blog followers - check out The Quilt Pattern magazine. It is a great online magazine. If you like the magazine then you will love Pattern Pastiche. It is an online community of quilters. Great bunch of people.
