Back to Your Regularly Scheduled Quilting

Hello quilters and happy Friday! Happy Spring! My parents are tilling their garden and I've been weed-eating around my house and cutting down last year's lantana.

Linda recently sent back a batch of quilted Tall 9s quilts along with 2 of her own quilts. This batik with the HSTs and the cool square-swirl quilting is my favorite.

I thought the star FMQ on this modern stars quilt was really cool. 

I'm doing ok, not what I'd consider normal but better than I was doing earlier in the year.  I think the change in the weather helps. 

These first 3 quilts that Linda sent back are assembled from blocks that Cindy B. sent in (I'm at least 90% sure. Someone tell me if not.)

I especially like the jewel tones and this awesome cat fabric in this first quilt. And Linda knows that the quilting patterns with close straight lines are always my favorites. 

These next 2 quilts are very similar to each other. I think there are a few other people's blocks mixed in with Cindy's here. 

Nice to have some solid on the back where the quilting stands out. 

Our kittens are now 5 weeks old and will be ready to fly the nest soon. Several of them have adopters already who are counting down the days. 

This last quilt is made with blocks sent in by Ann G. from MN. I love the color combo, especially with the batik fabric! 

Sort of a retro modern FMQ pattern. Thanks Cindy, Linda, Ann, and all the rest of you who contributed to this drive! 

Don't forget Cynthia has a block driving going on right now to make hospital comfort quilts. If your fingers are getting itchy you can make some blocks for her.


  1. These are all wonderful quilts, and the quilting is so appropriate on all of them. Thanks for sharing. I'm glad you are feeling better. The weather change does help!

  2. Kat thanks for sharing. Beautiful quilts that will be loved by many. Glad you are feeling a bit better, more of that to come soon!

  3. The blocks from the last quilt came from me (AnnG in MN)

    1. Great blocks, Ann! Thanks for stitching them up and donating them!

  4. I'm glad the weather is helping to brighten your days up a bit, Kat. These gorgeous quilts are brightening mine and will bring so much comfort to the families!

  5. I am always having a harder time during winter months so I am glad to hear that the lighter weather is also helping you. Please continue to take care of yourself! And lovely quilts with awesome quilting designs. xo

  6. What a great batch of quilts to be paired with some good news from you, Kat! Here's hoping you are feeling a little bit better each day.

  7. Hey Kat! Glad to hear you are feeling better! I struggle with winter months too. The 3rd & 4th Tall Nine quilts are mostly my blocks. These quilts turned out really well. Keep on feeling better.
