OBW #60 and so much more…..

It’s December 15, 2016.  I haven’t blogged in 3 months as there was an illness in my family that took precedence.  My family has received quilts from me for Christmas for many years.  I hadn’t done that in a while, but this year I wanted to show my love for them.   I made my son Josh a One Block Wonder (OBW).  Josh is my very own Grizzly Adams.  This is my 60th One Block Wonder and is named “Camping with Friends”.  Camping with Friends was made with Alexander Henry Fabric with a 12″repeat .

Josh called me last night.  He loves the quilt.  It has grizzly bears on the back.

I finally completed a King size “Yellow Brick Road” or my oldest son Jason.  He was thrilled. He waited a long time for this quilt.

As you can see, Tuck is always near by.  I made my youngest Granddaughter Samantha, a Minnie Mouse Quilt.  That prompted my sister Mary to get her a Minnie Mouse.  So, I made Minnie  a smaller scale quilt like Sam’s.  The label says “This quilt made for Minnie Mouse, By Sam’s Grandmother Jackie O’Brien”.  Of course everything fit into a tote with Minnie Mouse embroidered on it.

I had the great pleasure to spend a few days with several Studio 180 Design Certified Instructors at Bridle Creek Bed & Breakfast in Hamilton, NY.  We were hosted by Barb Hipsley, proprietor extraordinaire.  What a wonderful time we had.  the photo below shows us all in our Minion pants.

This time was totally devoted to quilting.  I was able to make some small quilts for my sister Mary.  She loves to put them on tables.

This quilt measure 39″ by 49″.  It is from Deb Tucker’s book Hidden Treasures.  I made 5″ blocks using the Hunter Star Petite tool.  This size hunter star makes a great baby quilt.

Looks great on this old trunk.

I named this “Mary’s Stars. It is my original design. I’m very pleased with it.  I used Studio 180 Design V Block & Corner Pop  tools.  The 6″ finished star blocks are the same block, I just reversed the colors.  It measures 39′ by 45”.

Looks great on this coffee table.

This one is called “Game Board” from a book of antique doll quilts.  It is only 22″ square.  Of course I Tuckerized it and used my Wing Clipper 1 to make all those Flying Geese.
