Clue 3 On Ringo Lake and Christmas On Ringo Lake

Posted By on December 11, 2017

This week we made “chevron pieces” for this year’s Quiltville Mystery.  I did manage to finish the entire Clue 3 for On Ringo Lake; however I only have the pieces cut  for Christmas On Ringo Lake.  Thanks, Bonnie K Hunter for this design that I KNOW will be fabulous…..it is exciting to make a mystery quilt because you have NO IDEA how all of these pieces will fit together in the end!

Bonnie K Hunter’s Quiltville Mystery Clue Two On Ringo Lake

Posted By on December 3, 2017

We are having a Sunday Link-up this time for  Clue 2 of Bonnie K Hunter’s Quiltville Mystery – On Ringo La,e.  I always make two mysteries – one in Christmas colors and another that either matches Bonnie’s colors or a choice of my own (depending on what I have in my stash!)

For Clue 2  we had to make flying geese units.  There are many different ways to make flying geese and I had tried them all except the one that uses the Folded Corners Ruler.  I am now officially a fan.  The units come out great with very little waste.

On Ringo Lake Clue 2 – Here are a few of my flying geese for CHRISTMAS ON RINGO LAKE (red and neutral) and ON RINGO LAKE (orange and neutral)

Everything is cut out except all of the neutral squares!

More Orange flying geese variety – clue 2

SAO Quilts and other Projects Finished in 2017

Posted By on December 1, 2017

This year I finished 11 quilts which brings me to a grand total of 217…and I am not counting the one that I pieced when I was 5 years old because my grandma cut out all of the pieces, sewed it together, and had it quilted.

Quilts Finished in 2017

#1     Mountain  Majesty Quilt  was made for my brother and his wife’s  (Dan and Glenda Albertson) dog, Lilo.  It is a Bonnie K Hunter Design and was quilted by Sara Parrish.  This was a pattern not for the faint of heart or for those with poor spatial skills (me.)  It took two grandangels, myself, and my son-in-law to get this quilt laid out properly!

#2     The Diver Dra Quilt was made from my brother, Dan Albertson’s, diving 5-shirts.  I designed the quilt  and Sara Parrish did the quilting.  It was a labor of love for sure!

K9 For Warriors

This K9 for Warriors project is a passion of mine.  Each month, 12 vets are given a service dog and spend 3 weeks in Florida training with them.  Many of the vets are able to give up meds for PTSD after having the support of these service dogs (who are all rescues, I might add.)  Ginger Whiting organizes the quilt for the dogs projects.  I sew the bindings on.  (This year I made 10.)

Bonnie K Hunter’s Quiltville Mystery – On Ringo Lake

Posted By on November 27, 2017

Yes it is that time of year again – that time when quilters around the world hop in and create one of Bonnie K Hunter’s great Quiltville Mystery  Quilts!  This year it is ON RINGO LAKE.

 

To join in the fun go to Bonnie’s blog:

https://quiltville.blogspot.com/p/on-ringo-lake-mystery.html

 

This year I am making two mysteries – again.  I always make two – one in Christmas colors to gift (because no matter what one’s color scheme is, Christmas colors are good to go for most everyone.)

 

Here are my photos for Clue One for CHRISTMAS ON RINGO LAKE and  ON RINGO LAKE QUILTS.

SAO Quilts and other Projects Finished in 2016

Posted By on October 15, 2017

 

I am hoping to finish some of my UFOs from prior years – that is my 2016 resolution.  To help in the process I have relegated some of my UFO’s into another category entitled “ABANDONED UNTIL LATER.”  This actually means “PERHAPS ABANDONED FOREVER BECAUSE I HAVE LOST INTEREST!”  In the past I have put these abandoned parts into other quilts or onto the backs of other quilts – I like to recycle!  So here goes my list of things that I actually completed in 2016.

 

#1     STRIPPY HIDDEN STARS  While I was spending some time in the Courtyard Inn in Langhorne, Pennsylvania I finished my first quilt of 2016. It is Strippy Hidden Stars and I made up the pattern – although I have seen many such variations using strings made into half square triangles….so I don’t claim this as a unique design.  The back is made from 2 1/2″ strips – all scrappy because that is what I like!  The quilt measures 60 x 84.  I sent this to my cousin, Rudy Riley, on January 27, 2016, in honor and memory of his wife, Julia, who just died of cervical cancer.  He is going to donate it to the George Ray Cancer Center in Kirksville, MO.

#2     ALBERTSON LOVE is made from my parents’ clothing and is a Bonnie K. Hunter design – “Basket Weave.”  It is a small lap quilt (55 x 62) and was quilted by Sara Parrish, in Midlothian, VA.  Amy Albertson claimed this for Dustin Albertson’s memory quilt and it will be living in Goose Creek, SC (as long as the Coast Guard has them there.)

#3       Talking Turkey is my first red and white quilt – I love this combination and hope to make more red and white quilts!  This is designed by Bonnie K. Hunter and I actually took a class with her for “Talking Turkey” when Bonnie was in Virginia.

#6     Albertson Ping Pong Balls was made for my son, Rob Johnson, from the clothing of my parents, J. B. and Marjorie Albertson.  This pattern was inspired by Bonnie K. Hunter’s Cheddar Bowtie Challenge and was quilted by Sara Parrish.  Ping Pong is a family game – a tradition whenever we gather together!  My daddy was a ping pong champion in the Navy.

#8       Albertson Tumblers  is a memory quilt that I made with my parents’,  JB and Marjorie Albertson, clothing.  I put camel minkee backing on it.  It is 54 1/2 x 70 1/2 and was quilted by Sara Parrish.  It includes 1400 2 1/2 ” tumbler blocks and was inspired by the Bonnie K. Hunter 2015 Tumbler Challenge.  I let my Grandangel Chris use it on her bed until her pet rat, Achilles, ate MULTIPLE HOLES in it.  I repaired it with yo yo’s and put on a new binding (which was almost totally chewed off!)  It is now on MY BED!  🙂

 #10     Leanna’s King Size Pillow Sham is also made from the Lozenges pattern.   It measures 20 x 36.   While this isn’t a quilt I am including it with my memory creations.  Leanna used it in her University of Mary Washington dorm apartment on her trunk as extra seating.

11#       Eric’s Albertson Stars Memory Quilt is a quilt that I designed.  It was quilted by Sara Parrish and gifted to my nephew Eric Albertson.  I absolutely LOVE this quilt.  It lives in Kansas City, Missouri.
