Quilting, Quilting, and More Quilting

     One of the things I like to do in my spare time is quilt! I go to a monthly quilting class where I get free fabric to make blocks for attending! I've been going monthly since last September and I have received 12 different patterns for blocks each month. I have made the 12 different  blocks. I have also made 4 blocks of each!

     It is now the time where I design my own quilt top with the blocks I have made within the year! My deadline to have the quilt top done is by September 20th.



      Here are just a few of the blocks that I have made this year!






This is what I have done on my quilt top so far! They are still all in piece's, but I look forward to being able to sew them all together soon and add some black fabric in as well! I will then add borders on!





             
All together I will have 80 blocks done to go in this quilt! I have made some simple extra blocks to be included!



Here is my last years quilt group crazy quilt top!





Here is the one I did the year before!



           


        I'm going to be quilting, quilting, quilting away!


What are some things you enjoy on your spare time when and if you have spare time?

Look at that talent you have! Each is gorgeous! In my spare time I enjoy just taking my camera and going out for a walk and shooting. I can't wait to see your completed creation!

awesome! I wish I could do a class like that sounds fun! I make bows in my spare time, ooops you already know that!

I would love to finish a quilt. I make rag quilts, I have started a quilt for my bed but ran out of fabric and money to buy fabric... someday it will be finished. :)

good job, can't wait to see the final product!

The buzz, Brandy

I recognize that store! I took the same class there for four years, but didn't take it this past year. After seeing your quilt blocks, I think I'll join up again.

Awesome quilts! I've always wanted to sew a quilt but it seems too daunting. I do love to look at them, though. These are great!

Wow! The only quilting I've done are simple block, quick patterns and a fairly simple turtle pattern for my daughter's blankie. You've got talent!

My mom quilts and has made each of us (9) kid beautiful quilts, a tree skirt, wall hangings and does special things for peoples weddings and baby quilts. I dont know HOW she does it...or ANYONE!!!! You have a gift Natalie!

In my spare time...I do laundry and clean up after my family AND go on blogs to see how other people live!
