Transforming Fabric Once Again

 I finished the "Check it Out" quilt top, a mystery quilt by Heather Spence, run by Missouri Star Quilt Company.  I used the jelly roll I won last year from MSQC.  I have yet to add the border(s).

I finally finished this quilt for my sister.  I had the fabric ("Indian Summer") for a few years and pondered about a few different patterns, but finally settled on this pattern, a simple 9-patch.  
50" x 70"

A simple daisy pantograph to match the little flowers in the quilt top.

The finished "Freebie 15 BOM" quilt top from the now-closed Traditional Pastimes here in Calgary.  I took out some of the bright blocks and used cotton fabrics instead of some of the provided muslin fabric, and sort of "designed" two of the blocks.  
This quilt was for one of my nephews, and he loved it.  
62" x 90"

I love this pantograph to match the squares and rectangles of the quilt top.

A baby girl "Diamond in the Rough" quilt.

Now onto other projects:

I made hooded bath towels for my boys.  

I am working on a Scrap Dance Quilt Along.  Here are two of the month clues.  This QA ends in September and I am using up kids' fabrics for a baby quilt. 

Another project:
2" HST Swap (through MSQC)
I have never done a swap before so this was fun.
I used these templates and have sent in my 56 2" HST and now am awaiting a mishmash of 56" HST in return.  Not sure what I will make with these HST yet.

These are the 2 styles of fabrics that I did.  (Paper kept on and not ironed as per instructions.)

I am working on another Mystery Quilt: "Double Cross" by Heather Spence 
This time I am doing 2 quilt tops, the blue/pinks for my church group's cancer donation quilts, and the green/black is mine.   

The first 2 pix are Steps 1 & 2

Step 3 
There are 48 of each block now.

And finally...
