Memories and a Chevron…

IMG_3197

So I have finally finished up all the blocks for a Memory Quilt I am working on(another persons memories, not mine). These blocks have definitely been a trial for me. Lots of different fabrics…fleece, denim, cotton, lycra! And with necklines and legs some needs some serious piecing to get into block formation. I had to teach those baby clothes a lesson, haha. They do look pretty cute though:) I hope the mom is going to be happy with them.

My next project is a Chevron quilt! This one has been on my to do list forever. I am using a tutorial by Kelly@MyQuiltInfatuation. Thanks Kelly for doing all the calculating for me:) I am sticking to my “use my stash” promise and have cracked into a big ol’ bundle of Fandango that I just had to have and now am not even sure I like any more…I waited a too long, tragic! I am using it anyway. I’m sure the love will return, it is fabric and I do love the teal/orange combo.  So far I have all my squares cut out and will get to making the HST’s tonight.

On a super exciting note…a local quilt shop(Sew Refreshing) is having Jenny Doan from Missouri Star Quilt Co. come and speak/demo! I have got my ticket and can’t wait to meet her. Will share pics for sure:)

Keep it Sassy

    Memory quilt is looking great. I put mine on hold to do a couple quick Halloween projects. I expect to get back on it this next weekend. Fingers crossed. (things pop up lol) I love the colors picked for your chevron quilt keep us posted!! You may meet Jenny!! How cool is that?!! I’m soo jealous.

  3. I can see how the memory quilts can be a bear to work with, but you do a wonderful job with them. Because they are so sentimental, I have a feeling that short of destroying the clothes, any proud mama is glad to get these quilts.

    And, I hope you fall back in love with those fabrics!

  4. I love that memory quilt, I can see that was a lot of work. I think the Fandango is going to make a very pretty chevron. I love those colors. Can’t wait to meet Jenny on Wednesday!!!

  5. Actually me and Jenny are doing lunch!! … Just kidding I had to skip lunch to buy the ticket 🙂 can’t wait! And those little clothes are adorbs

  6. aw! that is a precious little memory quilt. those cherries are just precious. I’ll bet the Fandango love returns once it’s all into a quilt. Have fun with the chevron!

  8. The memory quilt looks amazing – I can only imagine how difficult it was to make those blocks! I am imagining all those arm holes and necklines!!! I do like the Fandango colour combo – am looking forward to seeing your chevrons, don’tcha just looove starting a new project?!!
