Here is my first attempt at Georgia Bonesteel's technique. It is currently waiting to be quilted, but I was anxious to show-n-tell.
This inspiration piece from a magazine completely changed my plan for this quilt. In fact, it turned my original plan upside down.
Seen here with the fabrics I had taken to the class (before painting)
When I selected fabrics to take to this class I was planning to use the blue and gray water color-ish fabric for the sky and then to use the whites and greens to create snowy, evergreen covered mountains.
I used some water color pencils to mute a couple of fabrics that popped out as too bright.

This quilt was the 2014 Block of the Month (BOM) for the Wolf Hills Quilt Guild. I am in love with the "on point" setting triangles and the way it all comes together in the end. I deviated from the pattern when doing the multiple borders, only because I decided to make it totally from fabric I already had and I came up short to make the borders as directed in the pattern. I tried out some new longarm quilting on this quilt. I learn more with each one I quilt. This is a Debbie Mumm pattern and available on her website. http://www.debbiemumm.com/Projects/QuiltBlocks/2010/

We had 2 Grands for 2 weeks this summer. We had a lovely time. I took lots of photos and we talked about making a photo album. In the end, we ran out of time and I started posting some of the photos on a blog to share with Mum And Dad back home. https://www.wolfhuntinginabingdon.blogspot.com. You can pop over and take a look.

The Quilt Guild I belong to calls these little charity quilts "Love Knots." The focus fabric here was scraps from someone's clothing project (I'm guessing pajamas). I added more scraps and stitched them together anyway they would fit in the center section. The borders were a little more planned to highlight Taz, Tweety, Bugs, and Sylvester. Finished with some free motion meandering and it's ready to go.

Melanie of catbirdquilts.wordpress.com has a great tutorial on Medallion Quilts. She inspired me to give it a try with this great dragon fabric I bought for DS's quilt. His birthday is Valentine's Day and I'm happy to say, this one will arrive on time.

This fabric looked like a great piece to make a cat. It was only 1 fat quarter so I couldn't do much in the way of fussy cutting, but I think it turned out pretty good. It is filled with rice and ready for the microwave or the freezer.
