Calendar quilts

For the New Year, a friend and I planned to make a calendar quilt for each month of the year, but only got as far as March.  Even so, March is not quilted yet!

For the hearts, we tried out Texture Magic

Hello, anybody out there?

I can't believe that it's been 4+ months since I last posted!  Bad, bad , bad!
The sad part is that I haven't been keeping much in touch with all you fellow-bloggers out there, either, and I've really missed being a part of your lives.

Things got abit quiet in the New Year, and I didn't want to post about my "works in progress", 'cause there wasn't very much to say, and then because I wasn't in the habit of posting anymore, I just didn't!  So, I have lots of catching up to do.

I'll start with the latest quilts I just made.

You may recall a couple of years ago I started to make a split 9-patch for a niece for her graduation.  Well.....I only just finished it!  She has recently graduated again, with a college diploma, and her younger brother was graduating from high school, so I just had to finish Kayla's quilt!

 I dyed the backing 2 colours, blue to green


I used the panto called Novaya Zhizn
 And for Brett I also made a split 9-patch with some bowling fabric as the focus as he is on the local Special Olympics bowling team.

Panto used is Simple Loops and Stars

 Now if I could just make one more grad quilt for another Niece, I will be guilt-free!
