WIP #19

I am linking up to Lee’s WIP posts.


Last WIP post, I had 5 projects.  This is how everything is going…


I’ve had no progress on my:

1) Quilt of Valor II

2) Skill Builder Sampler (But Leila is back to blogging, and so I’ll be doing more, soon!)


I did finish one quilt!


3)  The Ultimate Boy Quilt is finished!  Last time it looked like this:

I was able to use the pattern for my Hybrid Quilt (Tutorial found here).

I did make a few changes, though.  I put one solid panel of fabric down the middle instead of the strings.  And, I added a strip of solid Kona Cadet Blue on either side, unifying the lattice portion of the quilt.  I quilted it differently, using straight line quilting.  Here is the final result:

And, I am happy to say that it is already being used as the roof of many couch forts.  Learn more about this quilt here.

4)  My pile of extra Cape Ann charms (now 2.5 inch squares) went from this

scrappy lattice baby quilt

to this

5)  And other quilt in that picture (tutorial by Vanessa of  V and C0. and found at the Moda Bake Shop) is now this and ready to be bound.

6) and 7)  I am in the  middle of making two memory T-shirt quilts for my little neighbors from their dad’s T-shirts.  But, I was able to complete these Cathedral Window memory pillows, so they have something to hold on to until the quilts are done.  Learn more about these pillows here.

8) My interpretation of a Coin Quilt.  This is a quilt for my cousin, who didn’t want pink or pastels for her baby girl.  I hope I caught her vision 🙂

9)  Last WIP post, I also showed you the beginnings of my Homeward Bound Christmas Quilt (Homeward Bound Block Tutorial found here).  I finished the quilt top!  Each of these blocks has 73 individual pieces of fabric.  As you can imagine, this quilt top took FOREVER to complete!

But well worth all the work!  So, I started off with 5 quilts, I added 4 new ones, and I finished one.  I’m at 8 quilts now.  But, 5 of them are quilt tops, so it looks as if I have a lot of quilting in my future.  And more finishes to show off next time!

  8. Katie says:

    Wow you have been BUSY! Beautiful work!

  9. Elizabeth E. says:

    Zounds! I love reading posts where someone gets a lot done, and boy–you did! They are all beautiful quilts, and your design adapts well to different fabrics and looks. I made a Christmas quilt last year that had tons of pieces in each block too, but I have to say I love looking at it, because each block is slightly different–the advantage of lots of pieces. Yours is quite beautiful, as are all your other projects.

  10. Tanya says:

    Thanks everyone! I do have to clarify, though. I haven’t written a WIP post in over a month, so hopefully that explains all of my progress 🙂

  11. Candace says:

    The homeward bound quilt and the cathedral memory pillows are amazing!

  12. Heather says:

    Your projects all look so great! Also thanks for the comment on my WIP post.

  13. Gina says:

    Awesome projects and progress! I love your cathedral pillows, they are beautiful! The quilting on your number 5 is fantastic too!

  14. Oh I love that Cape Ann WIP! I’m also working on a Cape Ann quilt right now, how funny! 🙂 Keep up the great work!!

  15. Linda says:

    Your Christmas quilt photo grabbed my attention in the thumbnail on Lee’s site, and I’m so glad it did! It’s a gorgeous quilt!! But I have to say, your Ultimate Boy quilt is magnificent! What a great choice of pattern for that one – it’s really effective!

  16. Claire Jain says:

    Whoa! Look at all of your projects! These are amazing. I love your Christmas quilt and the cathedral window pillows. I smiled when I saw that cute Cape Ann fabric. I made a quilt for a baby girl and one for a baby boy at the beginning of last month. Such great fabric!

  17. Dee says:

    Just pinned your Homeward Bound quilt to Pinterest! It’s just stunning.

  18. Aimee G says:

    Wow! There is not a one of those quilts that isn’t just stunning. They’re all just beatiful

  19. I love the homeward bound quilt! What a beautiful block! And also, very cool cathedral pillows. I love that you made them like a memory quilt.

  20. lori says:

    Wow, so many beautiful things going on! Love the boy quilt. For me they are always a challenge.Maybe it’s because of my fabric collection….
    I really like the idea of using cathedral window panes for a pillow instead of a full on bed quilt.

  21. Liz says:

    You are amazing. One day, yes one day I may start a quilt. Or maybe one day I will just buy one from you. 🙂
