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!

It was fun using different colors but I didn’t enjoy the free motion quilting at all.  I guess I just wanted to move on to other things.)   This one was also inspired by Grandangel Sarah Epps.

#13  JANNAE’S ART QUILT (61 x 78) is precious.  Grandangel Jannae did most of these drawings when she was 5 and 6 years old.   She used crayon on cloth and we ironed the color into the fabric.  It was challenging because not all of her masterpieces were the same size.  I think it turned out great!
