"X Marks the Spot" Quilt

I have a finish to show you all :) Here is my "X Marks the Spot" quilt.

 My husband is a huge fan of the red, black and white palette. When I made his Dressed to the Nines quilt, I had acquired a lot of red fabric....

I created this small quilt to use up some of those red fabrics that I had in my stash. I was asked to teach this quilt as a class but at this time I won't be able to. Possibly in the future since this was a fun quilt to piece :)

 Close up picture of the quilting.

 I absolutely love the pieced back on this one. It was a fun one to make. I used various lengths for the strips and all the red fabrics were from the X's on the top. 

Here's a close-up of the quilting. It's all free motion quilting and using rulers for the straight line parts. I could not quilt a straight line to save my life!

So for now, this quilt will be safely stowed away. Onto the next project ;)

Quilts for Broncos

On April 6th, 2018  the Humboldt Broncos junior hockey team players and staff were traveling to a play-off game when their team bus was involved in a collision with a semi-truck trailer in rural Saskatchewan. The incident and aftermath has left a void in Saskatchewan and communities across Canada. The Saskatoon Modern Quilt Guild has put out a Quilters Call to Action for Quilts for Broncos. They are asking for quilters to make blocks, quilt tops or finished quilts. You can read more about it by visiting the Saskatoon Modern Quilt Guild website. Click here to view their page for Quilts for Broncos.

I was able to make 14 Quilt blocks and I will be sending these blocks on Monday.

You can also donate fabric, batting, backing, thread, or monetary donations toward these items. You can find out all this information by clicking on the link above.
