Sew Along update

One of my sew alongs for 2016 is done! I signed up for way too many this year. I'll have to keep that in mind for 2017. But the Bloom sew along at Bee in My Bonnet is done. Just have to quilt it now.
I did mine in Kim Deihl fabrics which is quite different from the sew along fabrics. I love it.
This was such a fun quilt to do. I loved Lori's applique technique which you can read about HERE . She will be doing another quilt along using a new set of Sew Simple shapes in August. Its so cute. You can read all about it HERE

I have been keeping up (amazingly) with the Splendid Sampler blocks. Here is what I have with the current 33 blocks + a few bonus blocks they threw in.

I am also caught up on Pat Sloan's Secret Garden. These blocks are nice and easy-big pieces, mainly half square triangles. They usually only take an hour or so to whip up.  If you haven't done one of Pat's mystery quilts I would highly recommend them. This is my third one.

I am also caught up on the Crossroads quilt sew along from Fat Quarter Shop. No current pics of this one:(

I am taking a class at my local quilt shop Ivy Thimble. It's called Tulips and Pinwheels. Lots of fun and very cute. We have the center done and just have some hourglass blocks to make at the next class for a final border.

Here is a throw I made for my daughters high school graduation. I based in on a tutorial from Shwinn and Shwinn. I added another border to make it larger. My daughter has always loved maps and I thought it was cute. Here is the original and the link to the tutorial:

Here is my version:

I have a couple new things in progress. Pics to come of those soon!
Happy Stitching!
