Hello friends! It is that time of the year again, for the annual H2H Comfort Quilts Challenge, hosted by Sarah at Confessions of a Fabric Addict. The quilts are to be donated to a charity of choice for people who are experiencing serious illnesses.

H2H 2023: more progress

Hope you are all having a wonderful weekend, Rainy here, but not cold at least. Average Spring weather. This is my progress on this year's H2H Comfort Quilt Challenge project. Working on some quilting. I had intended to be farther along by now, but life, you all understand. Deciding on whether to do only diagonal quilting or diamond. What would you do? Be sure to go look at all of the great progress the participants are making. Some have already made or are making multiple quilts. Stay tuned to see this one all completed.

H2H 2023: first progress

Well it is kinda late at night, but wanted to get the progress on my H2H 2023 quilt posted. This year, my pattern is simple and one that is quite often done- 4 patches. Classic patterns are always popular and useful for many quilts, aren't they? I have visited some who have already linked-up with their progress, and the quilts are all looking so pretty. Much gratitude to Sarah for hosting the yearly event. Planning on finishing this quilt top in a few days and begin quilting and binding. Continue reading for comments.

Welcome Spring quilt top

Good morning friends. This little quilt top is from the Welcome Spring quilt along over at: Heartspun Quilts. This pattern is wonderful for stash busting those reproduction Civil War Era fabrics. 'Still "auditioning" backing fabrics and am going to swap-out a couple of the squares for other color fabrics. It just bothers me if two fabrics alike or similiar are close to each other in the layout. Does that bother you? 'Will be finishing this one as soon as possible. The background is muslin, and deciding whether to age it. Would you, or not? It is not too late to join in on this fun event. Today is perfect sewing weather, as it has been raining a lot. Late last night the power went out for several hours, so no sewing then, lol. Continue reading for comments.

Quilting Check In- Quilting JET Girl

A bit late reporting, but so far in 2023 I have not completed many works. This is a little quilted mat for my TV remote. It was originally half of a block for the What Is Love? event, but was too large. Rather than waste the fabrics, I made another block and repurposed this half. The pattern is called Mirroring and is designed by Anna of @waxandwanestudio. 'Almost finished with the What Is Love? quilt top, so stay tuned for that soon. This little mat is only my 3rd finish for 2023. Measures 9 1/2" X 14 1/2" and has minimal walking foot machine quilting. I do have several other works in progress, including a monthly color challenge and a quilt along. Read all about the 2023 Quilting Check In at: #2023QuiltingQ1CheckIn | @quiltingjetgirl | QuiltingJETGirl.
