A Friday Finish

All three things on my "March Deadline" list are finished!  Wheee!!

The first finish was my contribution to a Round Robin Row quilt for a friend from Idaho quilt camp.  So no photos of that one!

But the next is the May Jelly Roll Party sample:

The pattern is "Grandma Mary's Five Patch."  Jelly roll is "Terrain" by Kate Spain for Moda.  If the pattern isn't available at your LQS, here is a link to SweetJane's etsy shop: We'll be making this quilt May 3 at Ruth's Stitchery in Colorado Springs.  If you're in the area, some join us!

The third, and the big, finish is my 2010 Colorado Memories Shop Hop quilt.

There were seven shops participating in the shop, each designed a unique block.  Since the quilt has 14 blocks, about halfway through I decided not to make duplicates.  So some of the blocks are from Marti Michell's Encyclopedia of Patchwork Blocks.

If you click on the photo, you can see the background fabric has images of Colorado.  The state Capitol building, Garden of the Gods, miners, mountain goats, the "Welcome to Colorado" sign and a hot air balloon! How to quilt this one will be a challenge --- I don't want to distract from the Colorado scenes.

Oh!  These are quilts #11 and #12 for 2013!

Linking up to Thank Goodness It's Finished Friday at Sew, Love, Live, and Finish it Up Friday at Crazy Mom Quilts.

  1. You are amazing - I wish I could sew at teh speed you do!! Everything looks lovely Marti!!

  2. Two great (and very different) finishes! There are some stunning blocks on the bottom quilt. Have you tried quilting with invisible thread? Maybe that would work on the Colorado fabric...

  3. They both look fabulous, Marti. Well done! :o)

  4. Well done - your work-rate is amazing - especially as all your quilts have complexity and considered fabric choices. I don't think I could dream up fabrics or find patterns for a quilt a week - let alone make them! Gill

  5. ... and your cat seems to have a pretty good eye for creating quilts too! Love the FB photo! Gill

  6. I am so amazed you have been able to finish so many quilts already this year. I love the pattern for your jelly roll quilt, and the Colorado-themed quilt is awesome. Love that background fabric!
