Whims And Fancies Trunk Full Of Quilts 2016

Whims And Fancies Trunk Full of Quilts

As I was looking through my Flickr account, I realized just how many quilts I have made this year, so I decided to focus on those. This is in no way a comprehensive list because I realized many of them I got them quilted and didn't take a picture after binding.
My most recent finish - last night - is the Giant Starburst quilt using scraps from a previous quilt. I love the simplicity of the pattern and the colors.
Another finished quilt tonight. Giant Starburst in Green Bay Or BHSU green and yellow.
Last Friday I finished Fractions, a quilt I'll be teaching in February. I love the pattern, designer, and the fabrics are so modern.
Friction is quilted. Can I get the binding done tonight?
This fall I took a class with Gudrun Erla of GE Designs. She was a bucket list quilt designer who I wanted to take a class from. I made the Strip Burst in a baby size. This used up some of my mom's pink jelly roll.
Strip Burst finished in less than a month! #gedesigns
I made this Strip Lash quilt using the leftovers from the same quilt I made in the spring for my MIL.
Strip Lash II finished!
This is a "miniature" radiant star I made for my co-worker for Christmas. He said he liked neutrals.
Finished just in time for the fair.
I made this faux granny square table topper after teaching how to make the block.
Scrappy granny square table topper.
This coin quilt is made from scraps of all the other 5 cowgirl quilts I have made. I put my last bit of cowgirl minkee on the back.
I waited all day to post this for WIP Wednesday,  only to realize it's Tuesday. The Cowgirl quilt is finished!
I tried to make a minature granny square, but I could have gone smaller. The blocks are 4.5".
I made this BQ quilt for my friend Cindy using my mom's fabric stash of Loralie. She loves the quilt!
My nephew Owen needed his big boy quilt, so I made this twin size Case IH quilt for him using a different BQ quilt pattern and adapting to my squares.
2nd quilt done this morning, for my nephew.
I made the Remington quilt as a sample for the store. It turned out great and both my brothers want it. Who knows who will get it?
Remington quilt is done !
My MIL loves blue and white, so I used my mom's blue/white/gray winter snow fabrics to make her this quueen sized strip lash quilt. I gave it to her when she got a new job that I helped her get.
The Blue Hexie quilt is done! Feeling a great sense of accomplishment in completing this one. Made entirely from mom's stash.
I've made a lot of bags, table runners, and several other quilts this year. Visit my moneikquilts flickr account to see all my projects.

I don't know how you get so much done, working full time and part time and caring for your family. Such pretty quilts... I love the blue and white/grey one =). She is a lucky lady.
