Just finished this Simplex Star quilt. It’s a variation on the Friendship Star and Lincoln seems to like it. This is the block our Block of the Month group is doing for our Sampler quilt but I liked it so much I wanted to do an entire quilt with it. I really like the way the diamonds highlight the stars. This one might be a keeper. If you are interested in learning to quilt with the Quilt as You Go method contact Kelly to join in on the next group class beginning soon. kwalker@kellywalkerstudios.com

There were also a variety of String Quilts that were gifts for Christmas. These are so much fun to make especially as a Quilt as you Go. Every one turns out different even though the process is the same. I LOVE THESE!

At the same time I found the “Georgia State” fabric (see info here) I picked up some Virginia State fabric to make a quilt for my Virginia family members for Christmas. It made a great patchwork quilt.

For the last few months I have worked on quilts for Christmas gifts. Even though I live in Virginia now I will always be a Georgia girl and while shopping at Joann’s Fabrics I saw this “Georgia State” fabric. I asked the clerk why they had Georgia fabric in Virginia and she said she suspected that some store in Georgia must have a shipment of Virginia fabric. LOL! I bought enough to make quilts for several family members back home. They all liked them. I loved the fabric designs with peaches, flip flops and outlines of the state. Take a close look.

I’ve been busy quilting since September when I watched a Quilt as You Go video. I was hooked. It’s been so much fun. I’ve made several Christmas presents and can’t wait to finish the one I currently have on the machine. Love this process!

Several years ago I found my first Featherweight Sewing machine at an auction…a 1946 beauty. (Read about her here.) And ever since then I have been hoping to find a 1961 Featherweight to go along with her. I’m still looking for that ’61 but I ran across this beauty recently….a one owner 1964 Featherweight! She looks like she just came off the factory line. And since there is a tradition with Featherweights to give them a name I have decided to call this one Lucille for my maternal grandmother. (My first Featherweight is named Nola Mae for my paternal grandmother who taught me to sew.) Have a mentioned that I love these little machines?! They make the BEST stitch as anyone who has ever sewed on one will tell you. I am thrilled the “Lucille” now resides with me and will help me make some beautiful quilts in the future. Now just one more Featherweight to find….that elusive 1961! And I am really hoping to find a tan one so then I will have the trifecta of Featherweights….one in each color! Wish me luck.
