My Quilting Photo Journal
Please note as you view these photos, the sizes may not be all proportional. You might see a quilt that looks as small as a wall hanging or vice versa.
After I made the two Janet's Quilts on the previous page, I had some left over blocks and my friend Marge also had some which she
graciously shared with me, and I put them together into this quilt which I am calling Janets Leftovers Transformed
Then I decided this would make a nice mystery project for my Mysteries For Relay Group,
and then after that, I decided this would also be a great project for the fall retreats.
Then I decided that using pre-cut 2 1/2 inch strips, a.k.a. Jelly Rolls, Tonga Treats,
Bali Pops would also be a great idea.
And then I started making projects using 2 1/2 inch strips, some from my stash and some purchased and some gifted too. I started
with a Tonga Treat called Creamsicle that was a gift. I made a quilt based on
YouTube video which is no longer on line (now a pay for pattern I think)
This ended up being my least favorite project because of the bias in it, but I loved the quilt I ended up with. I gifted this quilt to Terry Enfield.
I purchased some pre-cuts from a favorite shop, Patchwork Angels in Endicott NY, including a bunch of blacks. I combined those with
reds from my stash and made Summer in the Park from MO Star Quilt Co.
This one sold to raise
money for Relay For Life
||        ||I had left over blacks and reds so I put together
this quilt, also called a lasagna quilt or Jelly Roll Quilt. Mine started with 1890 inches of fabric, so I called it my 1890 Quilt.
This one was donated to Bob's Blankie Brigade
| Another precut strip package from Patchwork Angels gave me this quilt which I
called Four Patch Framed. I wasn't in love with the colors, but liked the pattern, so I made another one (#472) which I liked a lot
This one was also donated to Bob's Blankie Brigade

My project for July was a red white and blue Road to Oklahoma quilt.
This was also donated to Bob's Blankie Brigade
I decided to do string quilts for the August project and got several finished.
||        ||I used another Tonga Treat called Island Punch and
added yellow strips from my stash to make this log cabin quilt for another strip project for the retreats.
| I'm not 100% positive where I got this idea, but I made the quilt and then wrote the pattern to go with it.
I used a Bali Pop called Coconut, and I called the quilt Area 52.

||        ||This is my second Four Patch Framed and I like this one much more than the first (#466) I call this one Four Patch Framed Rainbow.
| When I finished Creamsicle (#463) and Island Punch Log Cabin (#470) I had left over strips
and pieces. I put them together using the Four Patch Framed pattern, except more scrappy, and called it Leftovers… because that's what it was!

Then I went back to making more strings quilts for Bob's Blankie Brigade
#477 got away with no photo
At the fall retreats in 2012 I started a quilt which I was calling Wavy Batiks. However I got frustrated with it, and set it aside for a few months before I
started working on it again. When it was finished I loved it, and I still do. John said it reminded him of Mardi Gras and the name stuck. My quilter did a
terrific job on it, and I finished it a year after it was started at the 2013 Nov Retreat.
I also started and finished this Aunt Graces Zig Zag at the retreats. (It was eventually completely finished in 2014)
Then I started another Aunt Graces quilt, a Four Patch Chain. It is now my winter quilt, on my bed from the first chilly night to spring.
