Midweek Makers 360

Welcome to Midweek Makers!


Hope everyone enjoyed the Thanksgiving holiday, sharing a splendid meal and maybe some football with family and friends. Feels good to be getting back to traditions.

Which is exactly what I did over the weekend, spending time with family and friends. That means I have no quilting progress to share this week, and don't feel bad if you don't either!

So let's see some of the projects that popped up last week.

From Kathy's Quilting Blog, a quilt top rescued from a garage sale and finished up,


a lovely music themed piece by the very musically talented Songbird Designs,


and some pretty fall leaves from Quilting and Learning.

Midweek Makers 359

Welcome to Midweek Makers and Happy Thanksgiving!


This is the last block reveal for my beach scene quilt - towels hanging out to dry.

Now I just need to add some sashing pieces to finish the rows then I can start on the borders. Almost there!

I also did a bit of quilting for Robyn, adding the pantograph Fizz to this very modern squares quilt done in grey tones. It came out so lovely!


As for Midweek Makers, this week I'm highlighting birds and flowers seen from last week's party. Take a look at this gorgeous quilt-along quilt, Flower Patch Mystery, made by Gretchen's Little Corner.


And how about this gorgeous quilting from Sue Dario's Quilting?


Or these applique tulips, part of a striking block made by Rebecca Grace Quilting. Check out her post to see a better view of the block.

And last but not least, here's a few fun flowers from Donnaleeq,

Welcome to Midweek Makers - let's do some sharing!


 Here's another block for the beach quilt - a Ferris Wheel!


This block finishes another row - that's two rows done, two to go! Seeing the blocks in this row made me decide to add some cotton candy and drink cups to the Concession Stand. Plus I added it's flag at the top.

Those little details really makes a difference for this block. Glad I added them!

And how about these pretty quilts from the last party?
From Julie's Quilts and Costumes, a lovely rainbow of baskets,



another set of baskets from DonnaleeQ,


and a prettty scrap quilt from Melva Loves Scraps.


Now let's see some sharing - come join the party!

Midweek Makers 357

Welcome to Midweek Makers!


I'm still plugging away on my beach scene quilt, sometimes getting slowed down by the computer side of it. Lots of time goes into making sure the templates print out in the correct sizes, so that I can use them to make the blocks and for the future pattern. Here's a new block that took some time - a Roller Coaster.

Originally, the supports were pieced and the rail appliqued. As part of my simplification of this quilt, it's now entirely applique. And I love it! 

Now let's check out these quilts from last week.

From Donnaleeq, her neutral quilt is a fine finish,


a few beautiful blocks from The Academic Quilter,


and some fun Drunkard's Path blocks from My Quilts and Crafts. Check out her post to see the finished product.



It's time to party! Come share what you're working on!

Midweek Makers 356

Welcome to Midweek Makers - let's do some sharing!


As promised, here's the lounge chair to go with the chair and the red/white umbrellas from last week.

After making this block, the chair/umbrella row is now completed. I just need to cut the filler pieces and sew them all together. That will come after I make a few more blocks for the other rows. Oh I'm being so secretive about this quilt but eventually I'll show each row, then the whole quilt - be patient!

Last week's party was just bursting with colorful quilts! There were so many, it was hard to choose three.

Take a look at Noriko's Star from Quilts, etc - wow!


An easy, colorful quilt from Den syende himmel,


and another that's very similar, called Traffic Jam, from In Stitches with Bonnie.


Now for this week's party - let's do some show and tell!

Tent for Two for November Quilt Block Mania

Get ready for summer next year with a camping-themed quilt made with blocks from Quilt Block Mania! And what's the most important item when camping? A tent, of course!

As you see from this view of the tent, it's most likely a two-person tent. Therefore, I've named it a 'Tent for Two' - sounds romantic, doesn't it?

And just look at all the other creative blocks for the camping theme!


Collect all the blocks this month to get started making that quilt for next summer's camp season. And don't forget to thank all the designers!

Night Camper by Jessica of Blue Sky Modern Craft

My Tent for Two block was originally a runner-up tent design for my son's Gone Camping quilt, with a different one ultimately winning the design as it suits the tree setting better.

So when the theme of camping came up for Quilt Block Mania, I jumped on signing up for a tent, happy that a previously designed block finally gets it's due!

Just like the tent in Gone Camping, this one too is paper pieced. I'm rating it for the intermediate quilter who has experience paper piecing. It's not hard to put together though experience helps to ease any frustration.

As far as fabric requirements, fat quarters or scraps will make one finished 12" block. And the colors? Completely up to you! Feel free to make a whole campground of them!
