I have received most of my bee blocks for my #eadsquilt. So I thought I would do a small planning session. I just love the organizational stuff :)
.
I made a crazy spreadsheet, grouped and counted blocks. Don’t we all love math, planning and organizing?
.
Anyway 45/165 blocks for #mellmeyer_eads are done. My bee mates were very generous. Thank you all so much!

So, two things. 1. I am starting a new quilt! A few months ago I became a proud new owner of a Great Juki sewing machine, but life happened and I wasn’t able to do a big quilt right away. The throat space and the table just beg for a big quilt: top, quilting and binding. The largest I made was a scant queen, but I quilted it on a rented longarm. Today I am going to start a 104”x 95” which is somewhere between queen and king. I’m using @carolynfriedlander ‘s #eadsquilt pattern
.

2. My sewing area is also my cat area.

Finished these beauties yesterday! Bee blocks for Melanie @mellmeyer This is the Eads Quilt paper piece template by Carolyn Frielander, who kindly allowed us to use her pattern for these bee blocks. #eadsquilt #carolynfriedlander #paperpiecing #lowvolumequilt #quiltycircleofbees #beequilt @carolynfriedlander

Wonder what the winner of this month's #nycmetromod low volume block lotto will make with their winnings?! Next meeting June 2nd, noon-4pm at @sheencenter. Guests welcome! More info on our website (link in Bio).

@carolynfriedlander ’s patterns just seem to get inside my head - like in a good way. Just like my Version of Wainwright, the Eads Quilt was totally addictive as there are so many options to change up these little blocks, and play with pattern, value, contrast and the flow of colour across the surface of the quilt. Here’s my #eadsylikesundaymorning made in #konacotton solids. Ive finished this one but couldn’t seem to find a photo of it quilted. I must fix that. 🤔 Patterns available for $18 #eadsquilt #eadsqal #modernquilt #quiltsofinstagram #quilter #quiltersofinstagram #modernquilting #carolynfriedlander #fpp #foundationpaperpiecing

I’m working this top in quadrants and adding blocks as I go. I pinned the top left finished chunk of the quilt onto my design wall so I could continue the colors in a cohesive way. The top three rows are where I have been and the bottom two rows are where I am going. It is one part planning and two parts serendipity. So fun! #eadsquilt

Kiddo and I had a little layout fun. I definitely need to work on a better layout but first many more blocks will be made! #eadsquilt #foundationpaperpiecing #workingmystashoff #westwoodacres #olfacreates #janumfabric #htwipit #quilting #quiltersofinstagram #quiltersofig

My Eads quilt is starting to come together!!! I decided to sew it up into four chunks. Here are the first two. It has kind of a fall-ish vibe to it. I think I pulled the fabrics back in October?? Anyway... I’m excited it is finally taking shape. The pattern is Eads by Carolyn Friedlander and I love it! #eadsquilt

Eight blocks added! It was time to give this project some love. #eadsquilt #makemodern #westwoodacres #htwipit #workingmystashoff

My #eadsquilt is quilted, bound and ready for someone to be curled up under her! I did the quilting myself and am very pleased with myself! I had an idea that I drew out and I was actually able to make it happen. #modernquilting #walkingfootquilting #gleanedfabric Pattern and fabric by @carolynfriedlander

OK I finished two more of these, well four technically but now to make a whole bunch more. The moto-cycle gang is bringing Mel and his BMW cycle back in the support truck from the hospital in Bakersfield. So Milly doesn’t have to drive out there again. He got a stent and his life saved by the quick acting moto friends and an immigrant heart surgeon. #thankanimmigrant ( and see now I just wanted to ride shotgun in the air rescue helicopter). We are heading home now and we’re looking forward to Martin making us Spaghetti carbonara. #whatever

It’s been so fun seeing everyone’s #quiltvsquilter & #artvsartist posts that I thought I’d compile one. Most of these are from the past year and a half but only two are actually finished. 😬 So typical for me. 🤣 It’s always been more about #process instead of #product . Fun to see #allthecolors in one spot! 🌈 Pattern authors are tagged where applicable! (Bottom left Eads is @carolynfriedlander , natch; but it won’t let me tag her twice! 😉) 💗 #quilts #modernquilting #eadsquilt #sessomsquilt #victoryblocktemplates #floretquilt #monarchflightquilt

Look Ma, no papers!! Isn’t she a beaut?!? At least the back of my #eadsquilt top is looking mighty fine now after my #dcmqg guild mates helped me finish tearing out all that paper! 😆🙌 I was so slow going ever since last fall about ripping papers out. So I owe a special thanks to @ellerby77 @jenniferoquilts @sewtogetherphyliss @anneelizzy @subsistenceslicker @alavigna and Katie from Centerville! Couldn’t have finished without all of your help today! And thanks for the pics to document the whole thing, @chixdigneedles !! Pattern is Eads by @carolynfriedlander and sewn up last summer as part of her #eadsqal . #carolynfriedlander #carkaifabric #annamariahorner #fibsandfablesfabric #essexlinen #robertkaufman

In deep love with @treadletothemetal #eadsquilt and her band of helpers was also a joy to see #dcmqg

Just the binding to stitch down and my “A slice of Liberty with cream on the side” version of @carolynfriedlander’s #eadsquilt will be done!

I had plans to make this into a bed quilt but it’s been hanging on a wall unfinished for a few months and I love it as a piece of art so that’s what it shall be! I figure that if I look it at as often as I have and still love it, then that’s its destiny.

Finished my #socialtote awhile ago but forgot to show it off, so here it is! I just love this little thing.
Currently quilting my #eadsquilt and after a few frustrating false starts I came across the idea (on the wonderful internets of course) to use painter’s tape to mark the grid lines and my sanity is restored.

Round 2 of the #ssqfinishalong2018. This will not be my only declaration! 2017 was a busy year for me. I started this #eadsquilt with @carolynfriedlander and loved doing it. It's a great pattern. Unfortunately it got put aside for a bit. I was so close to finishing it. Im confident I can get this completed for round 2. Maybe even quilted 🙄 #ssqfinishalong #ssqfinishalonground2

Trying to keep the momentum going and sewing up a few more Eads blocks tonight. I’ve been using my new seam roller by @violetcraft and loving it! #eadsquilt #eadsqal

My #eadsquilt is ready for quilting! The pattern and fabrics are all from @carolynfriedlander. Special thanks to my early morning photographer @isabellataylorrr! #gleanedfabric #paperpiecing #modernquilting #aurifilthread

Here are my first 2 of 167 blocks enlarged to 125% for the #eadsquilt. My new king size bedspread project - not that I needed a new WIP. But being queen bee in April sounded like a good enough reason :)

My blocks are complete and arranged in a way that I like! Now to sew them all together and decide on the quilting. I've drawn out a few ideas that I should be able to do with my walking foot. #eadsquilt #walkingfootquilting #gleanedfabric

Finally some more sewing, but mostly queen bee preparations. Did a testblock and then cut "millions" of strips for my bees. Now they are all packed up. 15 letters going to the postoffice tomorrow.

I love this stained glass effect of Eads quilt. Maybe I will use it as a window covering. It looks like a Korean bojagi.

100/120 #eadsquilt blocks done! Now to decide on colors for the last 20 since I accidentally cut ✂️️ enough strips to make 30 more. ❤️💛💚💙💜

I'm just about halfway through the blocks for my #eadsquilt so I decided to lay the blocks out in their suggested sequence. I think I prefer having them all facing the same direction! We'll see where I end up when they are all done though!

Almost there! Ready to be pinned and quilted. I will not let myself start a new project until this is completed. Thankfully that is what keeps me going. #eadsquilt. #quilts

Check out @mccargarchristine latest project; a quilt top with so much energy! Swipe to see the finished top; it looks so so different when it's flipped! Some #modagrunge mixed with #batikfabric in here, and lots of #sewyourstash in this #modernquilt ! We'll add the patternto the comments as soon as we can. .

Hmmm. A couple of days late posting. Reasonable but not stellar progress this month for the #wipchallenge2018 with @unmessynessie for February. I’ve two finishes under my belt with this #seeingdoublequilt in #sunshinefabric from C + S. Pattern is by @thencamejune Next finish was #freewheelingsinglegirlquilt by @dsquilts using the new templates from the shop. Neither of these were on my WIP list but at least they didn’t become WIPs right? I’ve made good headway’s on my Wainright quilt. The sucky news is that my #eadsquilt which was finished in January is now back on wip list. The batting shrunk dreadfully and the whole thing was unpicked and needs to be quilted again 😩😩. I also managed to keep up to date on my #awesomeoceanbom and am very close to finishing the February challenge for my Mighty Lucky quilting club year of colour quilt. #wendywildsquilts #wendyswipchallenge2018

Gaga over this pile of #carolynfriedlander fabric (lower left) for an upcoming #eadsquilt, and still contemplating my choices for the #riptideqal hosted by @createdomesticity (upper right). I’m not a natural planner when it comes to quilting, so my Riptide might just be an improv after all.

Well, I hit 20 of #eadsquilt blocks, which means 100 more to go.. Lucky me, that I’m not in a hurry to finish this quilt. Anyway, I think that I know where I’m heading now and may possibly need to redo few blocks to keep background in the same color. I’m happy to add more color to the quilt but than my eyes need something else being stable.. #fpp was not my thing, but something is definitely happening here. Those blocks are so beautiful to piece.

Joining @mellmeyer for #30minssewingdaily. I think that I can check another month of daily sewing off so thank you Mell for the motivation!

I managed to make those #eadsquilt blocks earlier today and I’m going to piece a couple more tonight. And I’m really glad that I’m able to join Lucy @charmaboutyou for #saturdaynightcraftalong again.
Happy Saturday stitching to everyone!

What an amazing way to kick off the first day of my first QuiltCon! Spent the day with @carolynfriedlander learning about paper piecing and color. Can't wait to get home and continue working on this project.

Not wanting to throw out all the muslin scraps that I have, I had to start a new quilt. This is my first block and I like where it's headed. .

Today’s quilting project! Time to wrap up my Eads quilt from the #eadsQAL ... @gina_pina laid some beautiful (gridded) groundwork for me to play on top of. I’m pretty excited about it.

So . . . Less than ten hours before I leave for the airport to visit my cousins for a few days before #quiltcon2018, I am only just getting to cutting fabric for the classes I’m taking. On the plus side, I am officially on vacation, having tied up most of my work loose ends. Hopefully ;) #eadsquilt #carolynfriedlander #gleanedfabric #friedlanderfabric #carkaifabric #doefabric #architexturesfabric #euclidfabric
Also spray basted a bunch of quilt sandwiches for my walking foot quilting class with #jacquiegering
