Welcome 2015 and Small Quilt Club!!!


Hello everyone and Happy New Year!!!  I unplugged for the Holiday season to spend much needed time with Family and Friends and boy did we have fun!  We were very busy visiting and parties, football games, and just having plain fun!    And now at the beginning of the New Year I trust your all ready to get started with our club again!!!  So if your new to us you can join in at anytime of the year and if you need a break that is fine as well.  At the first of each month (give or take a day or two) I will post a pattern that we will be making as a group, you choose your fabrics and your style.  You work on your project for the entire month and then upload a photo to me before the 30th of each month (there is a contact us button on the right or just send it to Tildagirl@msn dot com title it Quilt Club 2015)  and on the first of the next month I will not only post the new pattern for the following month, but a parade full of the prettiest small quilts!!!!  They can be a flimsy or totally quilted.  Sooooo, the book we will be working out of all year is this book:
Maybe Santa put it under your tree?  If not you can purchase it pretty much anywhere, your local Quilt store or even on Amazon.  

I know your all anxious to see what we are doing first and I thought well the parade takes place February 1st so why not do something to coordinate with Valentines day? So without further adue.....turn to page.......54 and open BOX OF CHOCOLATE!!!!!  Yippee!!!! 


 Feel free to comment in the comments section and I can get back to you at anytime or email me as well!  Have fun with it and use fabrics of YOUR choice.  Don't forget to email me a photo of your completed quilt top and your name to give you credit and I will post the parade!

  5. I love small quilts, but I hesitated to buy this book as so many of the patterns are in other books I own. But so many tempting projects in one book? I couldn't pass that up and bought it last year. I have to report that I've already made the pink/brown quilt on p. 54, so I'll just make it in other colors. I certainly have the button supply, so no shopping needed for those. It's an adorable quilt when it's finished.

    1. So glad you found us! Go at your own pace, if you only get the top done and it's not quilted that is fine! Send the picture on!

  7. I have this pattern from a different book I have. I love the colors and design. It is a quilt I hope to make someday. Will check back to see how others have put this little quilt together.

  9. As it happens I had already purchased the book. I love small quilts. I was inspired by the pattern and I finished the little quilt this weekend. I even machine quilted it (one of my goals for 2015 is to practice free motion machine quilting) Now I just have to figure out how to upload a pic.
