Baby Quilt with TaDaDot Borders

I pieced the top of a baby quilt today.  Got to use one of my Me and My Sisters charm packs and bordered it with my TaDaDots I got with my gift certificate to SkyReve.  I won that from A Quilting Life.  I used the Verna pattern from Kate Spain.

QuiltCon Challenge Blocks

I spent all last weekend sewing QuiltCon challenge blocks that had to be mailed by Wednesday.  I was so tired of improv piecing by Monday night.  It was fun though.  I haven't made blocks like that except for one wonky log cabin.  I went kind of wild.

Here is a wonky log cabin in QuiltCon colors.

The next two are improv.

Last but not least is my paper pieced bluebonnet block in honor of my new state of residence.  Of course I refer to Texas.  The y-seam at the base of the flower gave me complete fits.  They are done and done and mailed.

One More Completed Top

I spent last Sunday finishing up a black and white floral quilt using my favorite "Fat Quarter Shuffle".  It is going to be a wedding gift for a colleague.

The other quilt top is a donation top made from "Cinnamon Girl" by Robyn Pandolph.  I used "Turning Twenty Again" for this one.

Donation Quilt

The new executive committee for the Austin Modern Quilt Guild just planned and executed our first meeting as a team last night.  A good time was had by all.  We had a jelly roll drawing with jelly roll strips in QuiltCon colors.  This was to hype up the QuiltCon block challenge.  We also had a pouch swap that was loads of fun.  We did it White Elephant style and a couple of popular pouches got stolen the maximum three times.  Of course we had show and tell. It is really nice to see how many talented quilters we have in our group.
