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!  🙂

I finished twelve quilts in 2015 bringing my grand total to 162 (since I began quilting in 2007!)

Here are photos of my finished quilts!

 

Quilts Completed in 2015

#1     Lazy Sunday is a quilt pattern designed by Bonnie K. Hunter and was featured in “Quiltmaker” magazine.  Val, at A Needle Runs Through It did the quilting.  I think I did more “UNSEWING” on this quilt than any other in my quilting career so far.  For some reason I kept reading the instructions wrong!  This quilt was gifted to my nephew Eric Albertson and his bride, Susan Albertson, as a wedding present.

#2    The Shirts off Their Backs is a basketweave pattern by Bonnie K. Hunter.  This memory quilt is made with fabric from my parents’ clothing and was gifted to my brother, Jim Albertson.  Sara Parrish did the quilting!

#7     Albertson Christmas Celtic Solstice is a Bonnie K. Hunter Quiltville Mystery, 2014.  The back is made from squares from the fabric of my parents’ clothing (J. B. and Marjorie Albertson.)  My brother, Dan Albertson, chose this as his memory quilt.

#8     New Year’s Eve 2011 Mystery Quilt…..this was designed by Ann Smith and quilted by  A Needle Runs Through it.  The back is made from a Bonnie K. Hunter pattern – Boxy Stars.  I hate to say this, but I really don’t like this quilt…..I think that I didn’t pick a good background for the pattern.  Since I categorized this as an UGLY QUILT I decided that I couldn’t give it away….so I kept it and keep it on my Grandma Albertson’s Rocking Chair to keep the chair clean (what was I thinking to have it recovered in cream colored fabric when there are cats in the house!  :))

#9     Albertson Chunky Churndash is a Bonnie K Hunter pattern and was made from my parents’ clothing (J.B. and Marjorie Albertson from Kansas City, Missouri.)  Sara Parrish did the quilting.  The back of this quilt also contains fabric that belonged to my sister-in-law’s, Elaine Albertson,  mother.  This quilt was gifted to my brother, Fred Albertson.

#10      Albertson Flower Garden Quilt.  This was a memory quilt made from my parents’ clothing and gifted to my niece, Amanda Cook.  Sara Parrish quilted it and I designed it.

En Provence and L’Orange En Provence 2016 Quiltville Mystery Quilts

Posted By on December 26, 2016

I am having lots of fun making Bonnie K Hunter’s 2016 Quiltville Mystery Quilt – En Provence this year.  My second one is being called L’Orange EnProvence (because it has some orange fabric in it.)

I have been making Bonnie’s mysteries since her VERY FIRST ONE – Carolina Crossroads!  I liked it SO MUCH that I made two!

I have continued to make two of Bonnie’s mysteries each year – with the idea that I could give one away and keep one.  As it turns out I love her quilt designs so much that I have ended up gifting most of them – they are that special!  I only want to give away quilts that are SPECIAL!

This year I am making two again – En Provence and L’Orange En Provence…..and here are my first five parts!

sao Quilts and other Projects Completed in 2014

Posted By on August 14, 2016

In 2007 I finished 17 quilts and I finished 19 quilts in 2008 . In 2009 I must have been completely crazy – it appears I made 34 quilts in 2009.

I slowed down a little and ONLY made 27 in 2010 and in 2011 I also made 27 quilts and many other projects!

In 2012 I made 18 quilts; however  in both 2013  and 2014 I only made 4 quilts each year.  I spent a lot of time in Kansas City with my daddy during his last year and the following year I was just too sad to do much sewing.

 

#1     Something Halloweeny was designed by me (although I think there isn’t anything very creative about a bunch of squares and sashing!)  Karen Murray did the quilting and the back is ORANGE MINKEE – it is 57 x 69.5 and this cozy quilt comes out every year at my house during the fall season!

#2 and #3 are My EASY STREET and CHRISTMAS EASY STREET – 2 of Bonnie K Hunter’s 2012 Quiltville Mysteries.  It measures 108 x 108,  The Christmas Easy Street was quilted by A Needle Runs Through It ($242.91) and the Easy Street was quilted by Karen Murray $216.40.  I thought the two prices for quilting was interesting given that they were the SAME QUILT doubled!  Pictured below is my Christmas Easy Street – the Easy Street Quilt was made in pinks and purples and I HAVE LOST IT!
