Sew Many Projects, So Little Time

This is showcase of my projects in various stages.

Patchwork Party Blocks

Here are some of the blocks from Marti Michell's Patchwork Party Spring Edition. There are 12 blocks total. I bought my finishing kit from "Great American Quilt Factory". I already have them all cut out but I sew them in between other projects.

Kris I love them - I think I have every one of those fabrics in my stash... shame on me for not sewing them up into something wonderful like you are!  Great job...

God bless,

Kris, I wanted to do this block party because I just love all these fabrics.  Now that I see them made up I really wish I had bought them.  You are doing a beautiful job.  Can't wait to the whole quilt.

What a great job. They are going to make a beautiful quilt. I've never done a kit. I did get a Christmas Wall hanging Kit but have not started it yet.

Kris - i forgot to tell you that your piecing is fantastic - i absolutely am in awe of your work... I love the top block with the secondary star block - it is great...

Great work and i for one can not wait to see the finished quilt... I am doing a BOM at the moemnt called Aquarious - I should take pictures of the blocks and post them - I have some needing to be done as the finishing kit is next month - guess I know what I am going to be doing after I get SM's quilt made... they are tough though the toughest blocks I have ever made... but look so pretty when they are done.

God bless,

Thanks for the great feedback everyone. Thea, I got lucky with these. The pieces just seem to fall into place as I sew. That is not always the case.

Kris, absolutely beautiful.  I am doing a Marti Mitchell $5 quilt.  I can't remember the name of it offhand, I'll look later.  I'm on block 7.  I'll have to learn how to add the photos like you have done.

Can I ask what size these blocks are?  I really like them, and if they're the right size, I may buy the pattern and substitute these blocks for the ones designated in my upcoming bedspread project.  You've inspired me!  

Is Marti Michell's Patchwork Party Spring Edition a book?

Oh, I found the website:  I see that they are 12"blocks.

Have you purchased all of Marti's templates for working on these blocks?  Is it possible to make them without the templates?

Just happened to open your blog and wonder did you finish this quilt, and if so, could your share a picture?

I am ashamed to say I haven't finished it yet. I work on it in between other things. It is on my list of WIPs that need to be completed.


I found these while I was doing the fabshop hop. Marti Michell does one every quarter.

Hi Kris, I absolutely love the quilt setting from Great American Quilt Co. I've tried many times to acquire the pattern for the quilt setting by contacting the store and was not able to obtain it before they closed their doors. Do you have any idea how I could obtain a copy?

Kris said:

Bonnie Rae, I'm no sure. They still send out email every now and then. If I find anything I'll let you know.
