Quilts of 2014
In Total 24 quilts in 2014
January 2014 - missed the Christmas season, but I can easily use this next year. Here it is, one of embroidery out of McCall's Quilting December 2013 book. I had to do both angels first then started to follow the pattern but ran out of material so started to improvise.

March 19th, 2014 - Valentine's Quilt
This quilting technique is called folded blocks. I wanted to do more of them from the book 3D quilting. See "Folded Blocks" to see the blog entries. I did one on April 21st and June 27th, 2014. Here are the pictures.
It uses a lot of scraps and that's what makes it so perfect.
This one is my birthday quilt - Finished June 2014 - with 50 pieces of fabric for 50 years old.
August 2014 - Using Thangles only. This table topper was created from a donation bag I got at a quilting store. It cost me only $7 and completed this beautiful topper.
End of August 2014 - This is my pride and joy so far. Using a pattern from Aurifil (see the tags to follow the process) I created a bed runner. The quilting took over 6 hours or more. You forget how long the quilting was when it's completed ;)
November 2nd, 2014 - and two more Blocks of a Month done. The first one was no surprise at all and got me interested in Pixelated quilting. The entire quilt is made of 2 1/2 inch squares. Thanks to Quilt Doodle Doodles for putting together this quilt group. The final quilt is definitely a seasonal quilt but one that is to be loved:
The snowmen are so cute. It took me three days of solid quilting to finish quilting the entire things, but I did it, and I'm happy with no borders around the edge, just plain quilting. Really shines.
AUGUST 2014 - did you notice the quilt under the one above? Here it is, all done, with very tiny pebble quilting by Material Girls - a free BOM online that was done only with 2 layer cakes, but in my case, I did straight material. LOVE it!! It's on the bed.
NOVEMBER 2014 - This next one was also started in January, with Pat Sloan. She called it her Globe Trotter BOM. I chose some Kauffman fabric that looked fantastic, gold thread throughout, purple, greens and browns. I thought I would love it, and throughout the entire process I wasn't too pleased with it. But in the last month I surprised myself when I started to put it together that I really did like it. I wasn't going to put the strips around the entire thing, but then changed my mind and did. This quilt was just quilted around the squares, simple quilting, because I did not want to take away from the fabric. I apologize for not having a good picture with it, the fabric just wouldn't cooperate. But here is the best pictures I had. One more down.
NOVEMBER 2014 - Smaller Version for the FVQG guild challenge 24 x 24" quilt.
NOVEMBER 2014 black and white modern quilt. This pattern is by Allie Health. I saw it in Modern Patchwork Winter 2014 magazine. I really love it.

January 26th, 2015 - Aurifil has changed their way this year so that you are not doing a block at a time, but a mini quilt at a time. Here is Januarys.
February 9th - Husband had asked me to complete a wall hanging for a friend's new home gift. So instead of one I made two. Here they are:
Look at the quilting of the leaves one.
Febrary 8th - needed a break and I did a hand quilting table runner. Completed on this date.
March - weekend of the 10th and 11th - was busy but happy. February was another Aurifil day. Made my mother a St. Patrick's day gift.
