Two Friday Finishes

Last week I got so tired of working on my 2012 Designer Mystery BOM, I dropped it and whipped up the May "Vintage Schnibbles" project.

The pattern is Gentle Art by Miss Rosie's Quilt Co. and the fabric is a charm pack of The Ladies Stitching Club from Moda. It's the 22nd quilt I've pieced in 2013, on my way to my fourth year of 52 Quilts in 52 Weeks.

On Memorial Day, I took a notion to finish a red-white-and-blue quilt for a Sailor on The Younger Son's ship, the USS George Washington. She passed the test for her Navy Warfare Qualification, kind of a big deal in the Navy.

I blogged this one in process. The pattern is "Stars from Stripes" by Cozy Quilts, and the fabric is all from my RWB strip bin.  Congratulations, Sailor!

Tomorrow's Fat Quarter Fun class at Ruth's Stitchery has been cancelled. Instead, I will work on the last FQF quilt I started. It's called "Currents," designed by Sharon Winter for Brookshier Design Studio..

Can you believe that design is made with just HSTs and solid squares? I'll show you my version on Design Wall Monday.

Linking up to Thank Goodness It's Finished Friday, hosted this week by Lucy at Charm About You, Link a Finish Friday by Richard and Tanya, and Can I get a Whoop Whoop by Sarah.

  1. Your Schnibbles is really lovely and the RWB quilt will make such a nice gift.

  2. Love your schnibbles and the RWB is gorgeous and will be a lovely gift.

  3. Love your Red, White, and Blue quilt. I always seem to have a heart for those. Have a super day!

    1. Thanks, Jennifer. I really started something when I made the first quilt for one of Jacob's shipmates -- there are 5000+ sailors on the GW, so I won't be making one for each, but maybe one for each Mass Communication type!

  4. The Stars and Stripes is stunning:):):):)

  5. Your Schnibbles rocks!

  6. I think Currents will be making another "sailor" quilt - it's a great pattern by the looks of it. Only 5000 or so sailors - now that would be a challenge...

  7. You're such a busy lady! Your machine must get tired!

  8. The are great! I love the Gentle Art, so pretty! Thanks for linking up :)
