Miscellaneous Updates

It has been awfully quiet around here, but only because I have been so busy working on my quilting projects!  I finished the back of the Museum Medallion quilt and basted it:

Basting the Museum Medallion required moving dining room and living room rugs and furniture.  The quilt top finished at 96" square, I think.

I spent a week quilting it, then finished it and delivered it over the weekend.

Quilting the Museum Medallion on my Janome.

I took lots of photos of the finished quilt and will hopefully be able to write up a blog post for it before leaving for QuiltCon on Thursday!  In preparation for QuiltCon I made a quilt starter for the second round of The Sisterhood of the Traveling Quilts since I will be meeting most of the other members (Jess, Laura, Ashley, Michelle and Liz) and trading off there:

I used Kona Bison and various purples (including Kona purple, berry and lavender) following Angela Walter's Impracticality tutorial

I love how it turned out and can't wait to see what the other ladies in the group do with it!

Quilt starter back, measures 21" square.

I also wanted to let you all know that my QuiltCon reject quilts will be displayed at the Massdrop vendor booth (#816)!  Super excited these quilts will get to be seen at QuiltCon after all!!

So if you will be at QuiltCon and would like to see a couple of my quilts in person you can!  Note: they will only be at the booth Thursday afternoon through Sunday morning!


  1. Great photo of the basting - inspires me to try my 84" quilt I'm working on myself. Love your quilting as always and glad your quilts will be on display at Quiltcon!

  2. What an awesome post! A finish! A gorgeous beginning! And I'll get to see you and your quilts at Quiltcon! I'm not arriving until Friday, but I will definitely find you. Ok, that sounded creepy, but it's not. :)

  3. Woot! I cannot wait to see this lovely complete! Love your quilty tissue box btw :D

  4. You have been super busy! It is so cool you got to deliver the Museum Medallion quilt in person, your starter for this year's traveling quilt is awesome, and congratulations on getting to show of your hard work after all! :)

  5. Yay that's so exciting! I want to get up close and personal with them!! I hope I run into you there :-)

  6. I wish I were going because i would love to see your quilts, and YOU!
    The medallion and starter quilt are just spectacular!! I cant wait to see more about them :) Have a blast at QuiltCon!

  7. Oh I can't wait until you post the pictures of your finished medallion!! I know it gave you fits and you wanted to throw it out the window (or maybe burn it LOL) at times but it is gorgeous! And the center for your new traveling quilt is awesome!! I have looked at that pattern on several occasions. You have reminded me that it needs to be bumped back up! ;)

    Have a wonderful time at QuiltCon!! Can't wait to hear all about it :D

  8. I just saw the first picture and thought 'wow', and had to tell you. Now I've gotta go back and look at the rest :)

  9. Love! I love the purple and brown combination! Its stunning!

  10. I will be there and I will look for you! Can't wait for all the fun! Great piece by the way!

  11. What a fun starter block. I look forward to seeing how it travels.
    Massdrop is way too good. I unsubscribed from their emails yesterday just so I have a chance to resist all their lovely temptation for a month or so. (On the same day, the thread I ordered arrived. Hurrah!)
    You must be sad to see that beautiful medallion go.
