Twin Rag Quilts

I'm back! Sorry it's been so long. I'm not sure who's reading my blog anyway. These days I post mostly to Instagram, but I like to blog about finishes. I have finished 4 quilts since my last post!!! I'm going to share one today which is actually 2 quilts made from the same fabrics. I've also updated the My Finishes section of my blog if you want to see photos of the other finishes, although I will blog about them next time.

I made 2 rag quilts using flannel, several prints from Moda and others unidentified. I got most of the fabrics at Marden's in Maine (great prices!) and at some quilt shops along the way. They both measure about 60 x 70 inches so they are great cuddly couch warmers :)... or throws :) I gave one to someone I work with for Secret Santa. I gave the other to my Sister-in-law in Washington state. I forgot to take pictures of one of them finished, so most of the pics are of the Secret Santa one.

This is the link to the full photo album.

Here are some posted for the blog:









Linking up at Link a Finish Friday!

Have a great day everyone!
Until next time,
Mike.

Scrappy & Low Volume Quilt Fabric Charm Swap (Round 3 & Round 4)


I know I'm insane for doing this, but I felt bad because I gave my regulars an opportunity to sign up early for the Round 3 of the Scrappy Swap and it filled up before I opened it to the public!!! Sew... I'm doing Round 4 simultaneously. Both rounds have the same exact rules: Scrappy & Low Volume.

Read the rules here

Until next time,

Mike.

Making a T-Shirt Quilt

I just wanted to share a finish that I have been holding back on because it was a birthday gift. My brother recently had a milestone birthday so I had his wife mail me a bunch of his t-shirts so I could turn them into a quilt. I also sent her some fabric for everyone to sign. Here are the pics:






 I loved the note on this. I made a pillow out of this and sent it in the package :)


I also went to a quilt show in Pennsylvania on Sunday and saw some gorgeous projects:








Also, a friend of mine saw a quilt exhibit in Nashville that was cool:







Sorry for the long post... but it was picture filled :)
Until next time,
Mike.

How do YOU spell Hexy?????

I saw this post yesterday and it made me wonder... I often wonder about this. I'm a traditionalist when it comes to spelling and grammar. I think it should be HEXY (adjective, noun) and HEXIES (pl. noun). But I often see HEXIE (adjective, singular noun) or HEXI. I thought maybe we could vote on it!!! There is a voting widget at the very end of this post.

By the way... if you like things hexy, you should join this community on Google: I'm Hexy and I Know It!!!

Here are some pictures for inspiration. Most of them were taken on my hexy commute everyday and posted to my instagram and flickr accounts :)

See you next time!

Mike.
