Determination - and Quilt tops

I was on a mission, one that I didn't take lightly.... well okay - it was sort of lightly....

but I did have a goal!

I was able to combine some wilderness with some piecing , and some hiking, and some eating, and some hanging out with friends..... and this is what I finished....

( PS - I have a TON of more hiking and camping photos.... just warning you.... there will be more posts!)



i finished Clue #3A  of Kevin the Quilters Mystery "Sapphire Stars"
and then!!
I get home
and of all the nerve! he has posted another clue
I shall spend all the days of my life working on it!!  ( ha ha)

I finished putting together all FOUR of these Quilt tops!!


and all 4 of these quilt tops
(ps the sheets sticking out at the corner... do NOT pay attention to them
 - we all have to do laundry right? 
Just don't let it get in the way of Quilting!!)



and my leader ender project was (is?) these scrappy hearts


and.... this was my start to finish quilt.
I cut, pieced, and topped this one 
I like it!
It will fit one of the beds in my house
so it is going to be kept!!




and I hiked!
I saw some of the Aspens Trees leaves going to yellow
so I know that means fall is just around the corner!!!
Yay

Holy cow you have been a busy beaver! Love it all:)

Beth @ Cooking Up Quilts said...

Wow! I'd be doing a major happy dance if I had all those finished tops! You are a sewing demon! LOL

Jenny Grandfield said...

My gosh woman! You have been busy. They are all beautiful!

Sandy said...

Nice work, all the way around!

Would you mind if i borrow the layout for the last one? I make lap quilts for veterans and others in need, and this looks like an easy - yet dynamic - pattern.

Hi Alycia,
WOWEE - you have a newsy post full of accomplishments and great starts. I just love, love, LOVE that orange quilt. That is exactly what I want to make for my bed, and maybe even in oranges . . . it is so nice and colorful and cheery. Love your scrappy hearts, too - you'll have enough for something soon and painlessly with the leader/ender thing. ~smile~ Roseanne

You got more done this week than I have accomplished ALL YEAR! I am now going to go crawl under my sewing machine and die... ;-)

Great job. I especially like the orange one.

Let you get a whiff of fresh air in your nose, and you are offfff........... Love all of those quilt tops and I'm feeling a tad envious of your production. Especially love those happy, scrappy hearts.

So much progress. Beautiful. Especially like the orange HST - very bold. Hope you will share after quilted too!

You've put me in red, white and blue overload, and today, I couldn't think of a better way to be! Gorgeous patriotic quilt tops!

Good gravy girl! Showing off your super power!

Bonnie said...

Wait, did you do this between hiking and seeing friends? Amazing. You've been a very busy quilter. I really like the quilt design in the top picture. And, thanks for the reminder about Kevin's mystery. I need to get back and check on it.
