2019, Cont'd

From July to December of last year I continued making monthly minis with Wendy, The Constant Quilter, participated in a Stringalong with Lori at Humble Quilts, finished Eagle Medallion and was inspired by an 1875 quilt to make my own version.

 12. I discovered this mola in my grandkids' toy box at the cabin and turned it into July's little quilt. It's definitely a Mystery Mola and hand-quilted.

13. The eagle panel was a gift from Rachel and the churn dash blocks were from Barb V's 2017 block swap. Thank you all!  


14. A Moda Bread & Butter charm pack from Rachel 😊 was turned into two little quilts for August. This one stretched my imagination when I added pine trees to the blue line which represented the Adirondack Park.

15. The second little quilt made from the same charm pack. 

16.  I made Selvage Strings as part of Lori's Humble Quilts stringalong. And with a little help from my friends--Rachel, Wendy, and Janet O.--I had enough selvage strips and sashing fabric to make it happen. 

17. September mini was the result of leftover hsts while working on #19. 

 18. I was inspired to make October's little quilt when I saw Gay's Sentimental Stitches Cheddarback quilt block pattern and combined it with a favorite antique quilt in the book Calico and Chintz. I added the hst border. 

19. Cross Variation was inspired by an 1875 vintage quilt. I switched out the original dark sashing with a white/brown polka dot fabric.

20. More hsts, selvage strips, and alphabet fabric all came together for November's Little Quilt.

21. Finishing out the year with another monthly mini :)

Thanks for following along on my 2019 journey!
