    I have finished a top into a quilt. About a year ago Barbara from the Birthday Swap posted a QAL for her members to use up some of their 2.5" squares that they swap. I made the top, then folded it up and there it sat until now. I have donated it for a teenager in the children's crisis home that my group supports. It's a twin size.

    Good luck to you Teen! Are you moving far?

    ckcowl, that Cathedral Window is so pretty. And it's almost done. Hope you will finish it.

    My scrappy chevron 'mystery quilt'... I'm sure Barbara Kibbler in the Birthday group can direct you to the clues she posted, if you want to make one. Notice that there are no whites or lights, just mediums and darks in the mix.

    I have saved the tutorial for this quilt, I just finished my second one and will post a photo later this week, but I am not sure about the rules for sharing this since it came from another board member. It is not a "pattern" in the traditional sense but a week by week picture and written tutorial for the 2.5 Birthday Swap group last year. Let's see what our moderators say and I will check with the one who posted originally.

    I have messaged Barbara from the Birthday Swap group to see if she has a list of the posts where the “clues” are given. I have not yet gotten a response from her. If you want to search yourself, True4uca, the mystery QAL was in the 2018-2019 Birthday Swap thread, found in the Swap section of the board. The first clue appeared around March or April of 2018, and new clues came out every 2 weeks, always posted by barbarakibbler. If you can find the first one, you should be able to skim along and find the rest.

    When I hear back from Barbara I will post her response here.

    I found it! The introductory post for that mystery quilt is post # 595, on this page:
    https://www.quiltingboard.com/member...294216-24.html

    From there she gives the start date, and the following clues are given every two weeks thereafter. Originally she said every three weeks, but then shortened it to two. So if you want to find the pattern 'clues', just scroll through for posts from BarbaraKibbler, every two weeks after the start date.

    I went digging around and found the posting numbers for the rest of the instructions.

    Follow Sewbizgirl's directions using the link in her post. The following are the post numbers for the instructions.

    step1: 610 rows of 3
    step 2: 800 9 patch
    step 3: 961 cutting background fabric
    step 4: 1089 making 6 patch
    step 5: 1206 making 8 patch
    step 6: 1207, 1208. 1209 making triangle blocks
    1343, 1344, 1345, 1346

    I found the pictures particularly helpful when making my quilts using this pattern.

    Thank you for all that work, WMUTeach! It took me forever just to find the first post, so I can imagine the time you spent locating them all!

    Sewbizgirl, I saved the directions and photos when Barbara posted them last spring and summer with the post numbers. I did take some time to double check the post numbers and glad I did. Found a couple of errors but now, all is well. I just finished another quilt with this pattern. Haven't taken a photo yet but will and post likely this week-end. Hope folks like orange!

    Ckcowl This brings back a lot of memories! I inherited one from my DH's GM it was about 1/2 of a twin bed size. Tried to figure out what to do with it as she made it on point, so there was a lot of 1/4 triangles. Was able to salvage the piece as a lap quilt and 1 wall hanging, sister-in-law said she liked them.

    Sewbizgirl Awesome, such a happy quilt.

Pulled it out & since I had nothing else really going on at that moment I located a backing that would work and loaded it up to finally get it quilted. Of course about an hour later I was contacted and asked to make a quilt for a school raffle.
    I picked up the squares ( colored by the kindergarten class) and went ahead and made that quilt top- finished the borders on it yesterday and today got busy quilting the loaded ufo- I wasnít about to unload it at this point. So, now itís all quilted ( Yea!) and the school quilt is loaded.
    the backing on this ufo is a bright turquoise color- not this dull blue that shows in the picture. Itís not perfect, but sometimes done is better than perfect.
    Ckcowl - I wish I had your ability to quickly get the job done. I would love to have a Long arm or even a mid arm, so I will just drool over your quilts for now. Looks great!

I'm so relieved.. Here's a pic before I sewed the left piano key border on...
    Teen what wonderful choice of shading, for the wedding quilt! It will go with anything that the couple chooses for there decor and look outstanding.

The other parts with Flying Geese and HSTs are leftovers from a quilt I made in 2012- they were set aside to make another quilt, but I was just so tired of them that after I got them pieced in rows I never could manage to make myself put the quilt together LOL!

    Ditch quilted the HSTs and Geese using tiny blanket stitch on the sewing machine and also used the same to stitch the ribbons down over top. Overcast the edges to bind using the same pink thread that I used in the quilting. I think it's about 42" wide by 20something high....

    thanks for looking,
    Rob
    Rob, you come up with the most amazing ideas and have so much talent. I keep waiting for your next project, knowing it will be something very unique.

    Yes, these are all mine. I actually have some more finishes to post, just have to find them. These were some of mine at the quilt show. Having them hanging up made them look so much prettier than laying on the floor. I had 33 entries this year at Odessa. They wanted all my ufo finishes. I was in a contest at Experience Quilts in Odessa and they requested I enter them in the show. I have been unemployed since February of this year. This gave me time to finish my projects. I still have more to go, but at least I made a dent in my goal of 55 UFOs. I do only have 22 more to go by November. I will post pics when I get them done.

    I do appreciate your kind comments.
    QuilterMomma 33 in one show? Did you have time to eat or sleep this year?? Loved looking at your one quilter show, I hope you find what you are looking for in the employment area. Remember to only work at what you love to do. Then it's not a job it's fun time.
