Posts Tagged ‘Freeze Frame’

A finish, a finish, I finally have a finish!   🙂

Here is my version of  “Freeze Frame”, a Quilt for an Hour pattern designed by Judy Laquidara.

Freeze Frame Complete

Here’s a better look at some of the fabrics used in the quilt.

Freeze Frame fabrics

I am estimating that I used 7 yards of fabric for this quilt top, calculating from the fabric requirements given in the pattern and counting the fat quarters that I used for the squares.

I loved making this quilt, and I am already thinking of another version in other colours!

My Stash Report totals for Week 45 are:

  • Bought this week:  0
  • Used this week:  7 yards
  • Bought Year-to-Date:  24.875
  • Used Year-to-Date:  92.375
  • Net Used:  67.5 yards

What a shock when I realised this morning that there are only 8 weeks of Stash Reports left this year.  There are still so many unfinished projects on my To Do list for 2009!  I felt a surge of panic — because, silly me, I am always setting unrealistic goals for myself.

Then I took a deep breath and remembered that it’s not The End Of The World if I don’t get every single thing finished.  I’ll just do the best I can and try to remember that quilting is a hobby for me, and it’s supposed to be fun!

This week I have continued to work on “Freeze Frame,” Judy Laquidara’s Quilt for an Hour project.  I am about halfway through Hour 11.  The last step is Hour 12, so the finish line is in sight!  🙂

Freeze Frame 11

I haven’t finished anything this week, and I haven’t bought any fabric this week, so my totals remain:

  • Bought this week:  0
  • Used this week:  0
  • Bought Year-to-Date:  24.875
  • Used Year-to-Date:  85.375
  • Net Used:  60.5 yards

Judy Laquidara has posted the fabric requirements this morning for her new Quilt for an Hour project called “Morning Splash.”

Fortune is smiling on me today because I was able to find these fabrics in my stash, and they will be perfect for this project!

The polka dots are a collection of half-yard cuts from the “Giddy Dots” line by Michael Miller.   I also had sufficient yardage of the black, purple, gold and white fabrics called for in the pattern.

I haven’t forgotten about my previous Quilt for an Hour project, “Freeze Frame” — it’s still in progress, and I work on it every day.

Freeze Frame progress

Both of these quilts are going to be Christmas presents, and working on them in this very organised QFAH way means they might actually be finished on time!  At least the tops will be finished, and I’ll do my best on the quilting.

For more information on both of these lovely free quilt patterns, please visit Judy’s blog, Patchwork Times.

Still working on Judy’s “Freeze Frame” Quilt for an Hour project, trying to finish up before the next project starts next week!

These are the blocks for the borders.  One border stitched on, three more to go!  The colours look a bit Christmas-y in the photo, but they are actually forest green and rust.
