On the design wall--Moda Love

I saw this quilt and fell in love.  I wanted it as close to the picture I found on Pinterest as I could get.  Here's the inspiration:
She's so pretty!  Here's mine on the design board:

The pattern:
The fabric.  I messed up and bought a fat quarter bundle instead of the 10" layer cake, so I had to cut the 10" squares.  So I still have plenty of the beautiful fabric left for another project!

WIP--Progress made on Big Granny Squares

Got the quilt top finished and put together expect the border.  I am very pleased with it.  Was a quick and easy pattern

                                                                    Blue border.

This is the fabric I choose yesterday at Hancock's Fabric.  I just love it.  It was a little pricey.  Thank goodness for their 20% off coupon!
I can't wait to get it all put together.  I need to take the top to the embroiderers first to have my sister's name put on it.  Guess it's time to start another.

Lavender Double 4 patch

I'm calling this one Double 4 Patch.  Don't remember where I got the idea or what the inspiration was.  Fabric is Showers of Flowers charm pack by Susie Johnson by RJR Fabrics.

It is at it's new home in North Carolina at my friend Rene's vineyard keeping her warm at night.  I was able to get it finished and sent to her in time for Christmas.  Pictures taken by Penny Raymer.

Hunter's Star quilt top finally finished!

Hunter's star finally finished.  Measures 5 ft square.  I love the stars but it is a lot of sewing!  Happy with how it turned out.  Not going to quilt and back it right now.  Starting something else right now and will come back it later.  Happy with the colors and I have a lot of fabric left over to make something else.
