Easy Fat Quarter Cot Quilt

This was a very easy pattern to do and fun because it went so fast!!!!  Pattern is from Craftsy and is called Easy Fat Quarter Cot Quilt.  It is free!  Going to make several of these since it uses just 6 fat quarters.  I have lots of packs of 6 fat quarters!!!!  Next time, I'll plan the placement of colors a little better!!!!

Second Skateboard Quilt

  This is my second Skateboard quilt.  So much fun putting these together.  Thanks to my dear friend Debi for giving me the 3.5" x 6.5" squares.  This pattern is in the last issue of BLOCK Magazine put out by the Missouri Quilt Company.  This is a great magazine with no ads in it and each time (every other month) you get 10 patterns.  They are great patterns.  I'm really excited to be planning a trip to Missouri Quilt Company in Hamilton, Missouri sometime this summer.
.  From what I have read, they have 6 quilt shops open in downtown Hamilton.  There may be more, since I think they opened up 2 more just last week.  Can you tell I am excited??!!!

This quilt will go to Project Linus.

Courtyard Quilt

Courtyard quilt is a free pattern from Cloud 9 fabrics.  I used up all my leftover Joel Dewberry fabrics from a couple of quilts I did this Spring.  Felt good to empty out a box!  Now on to the next project!  My friend, Debi gave me a bag with 400+   3.5" x 6.5" rectangles of fabric.  I already used some  in the skateboard quilt I made last week.  think I will try Bonnie Hunter's pattern "Lozenges" and use some of them up!!!

Musical Notes Quiltets


 
 Got this pattern and holder in Houston last fall.  I like classical music and thought this  was a good pattern to show that.

We are having rain and lots of it here in North Texas.   Finally having sunshine the last 2 days.  Many roads are still closed.  I feel so sorry for the people who have flooding of their homes and businesses.
