Completed Smartphone Quilt

It is done, finally! It took a couple of months, but here she is on all her glory.

Completed Smartphone Quilt

All these patterns and much, much more is still available for free on Fandom in Stitches in the link below.

Completed Smartphone Quilt

There are several layouts to choose from as well, in the end my mom decided in the Ipad layout, as this quilt is for her. And she is completely addicted to her Ipad.

You can still join in with the quilt along. Even though it “ended in December”, there is still people joining in and starting their quilts.

And some closeups of all the blocks that went into the quilt.

There will be a second quilt, and has been added to my list of things to do. But not right now, as I have to finish off some current bom’s and qal’s.

Plus I need to finish preparing for my Fantastic Beasts quilt along starting in October.

I will keep a database here, and you can follow the quilt along from here as well. But the main event will be hosted by Fandom in Stitches.

Tomorrow I have some catch up blocks to show, from the My Favorite Things block of the month.

And lastly, but definitely not least, I have been working on a Romulan Pattern for my Star Trek Series. Hopefully I will have this one tested in the next week or two and then I will share it with all of you.

Checkerboard – Play with me QAL

Wow, we are into out second week of January already. And what a first week it was. Busy, busy, busy.

In between many other things, I decided to tackle the Play with me QAL with alidatweloqdesigns.

Alida has 9 wonderful boards to make into either place-mats, zip / roll-up bags and a pick-nick sized quilt.

Each block will showcase a different technique and can be done as a quilt as you go method. I am happy about this, as I have not tried quilt as you go yet. So that will be a first for me.

This one below is the first block, the checkerboard.

This ones used bargello piecing, which was also a first for me. (Which is weird, since I have made way more advanced stuff)

And was a very easy technique to use.

Alida, give very detailed information on each block, how to make the block. And teaches you the technique, in such a way that even absolute beginners can follow along.

Checkerboard

I am very excited to see what she has planned for us next.

If you want to quilt along with us, here is the link below.

There isn’t much else I can show at the moment, as I am busy with a commissioned piece that needs to be finished in the next week.

I will show more of that one later.

Till next time.

Thank you to all of my followers for all of your support and lovely comments.

My latest finished block for the Smart Phone Quilt Along.

All patterns are designed by Jennifer Rowles at Fandom in Stitches.

The is nearly a hundred different apps to choose from, and five different layouts.  Including an Iphone style layout and an Ipad layout.

Because this Iphone quilt is for my mom, she has chosen the Ipad style layout, with enough block to make it a queens size bed quilt, to share with my dad.

I am planning on making a quilt for me as well, but this will have to wait, as I have to many things going on this year. So I will add to my “if I get a chance this year” list. There is way to many UFO’s to start something new.

All the patterns are free to download, click on the link below to go straight to the pattern page.

As soon on Fandom in Stitches2

Google Drive, Smartphone Quilt Along.

So after a bit of sulking because of bad health, I restarted my blocks for the Smartphone Quilt Along.
This is a really fun quilt to make, anyone would love one for a present, from teenagers to granny and grandpa.

It has been a busy coupe of weeks, trying to get the project finished for the Halloween Haunts finished, plus I am busy with several project (secret ones). One surprise Christmas present for my son, and the massive, huge, awesome secret project that I now have a date for. The “big” secret project will be a quilt along, starting November next year, the quilt along will run for about 4 months, and you will have multiple choices of blocks and layouts to choose from.

I know it is a long time to wait, but it is AWESOME! a zillion times over. It is going to be worth the wait.

Here is what I finished last night for the Smartphone Quilt Along.
