A New Wip, A Few Finishes and Some Sneak Peeks

Before I get into today’s post, I need to congratulate Karen P. from North Carolina for winning my mystery fabric box! Thanks to all of you who enter my giveaways – I will be hosting a few more in the fall so be on the lookout! :-)

I have been busy all summer finishing this stack of quilts. It’s been such a pleasure to work on them! Although it will be quite a while before I am ready to reveal them in public, I can truly say I’ve grown as a quilter while creating them. It’s been a little tricky blogging and sharing on Instagram (@christaquilts) when there’s nothing to show, but I’ve been enjoying posting a few little sneaky peeks now and then.

20140827_quilt_stackWhat I did over summer vacation. Now it’s time to get busy on the design wall again!

I can show you the backing of another fun finish which will be revealed in the Winter issue of Quilting Quarterly this December. This is the magazine published by the National Quilting Association – a group that has been around for over 45 years. Can you believe it?! Be sure to join NQA to get your quarterly subscription so you don’t miss out on the fun! Here’s a hint: think small!

Finally, here is a WIP that I can show. I’m working on “Abacus,” an easy machine applique project that will be my next Quilt Along! Yay!!! I started it earlier in the year before I got serious with deadlines, and I’m now excited to return to it. I’m finalizing details now, and I plan to launch the quilt along mid to late September.

Who’s excited for the fall quilting season? I know I am!

  1. Love the circle blocks! I had wanted to make a quilt using them for one of my sons but he preferred a HST design. I think I might make one for myself x

    So excited to see what you’ve been working on! Can’t wait for the quilt along! I’ve been wanting to do something with circles! Even know what fabric I’ll get! Now, you’ve inspired me to finish up current projects!

    I’m glad to see that I’m not the only one who is struggling to share things that I can’t actually share yet…such a terrible conundrum :) Those circles are pretty interesting, looking forward to seeing where you go with them.

    I think I’ve said it before, but I’m a sucker for circles. Funny though, I’m not overly crazy about fabric dots and spots, which you won’t find often in my quilts. In any case, it’s great to know you’re working on some fun, secret stuff. It means you’re being paid for them!

  9. Renee says:

    Love those circle blocks, especially on the grey background! Can’t wait to see all those quilts!

    Can’t wait for the big reveal of all those projects!
