thanks Golo, I found it when rummaging one day in my stash, thought it looked like an aerial view of a village and the quilts hanging on the line just finished it for me, I had to use it

Ooh, aah, GC - love the balloons. Stitchery? Not candlewicking, right?

Candlewicking - gift from my mum yrs ago, I had been going to frame it then I found the fabric I used for the borders. I quilted the clouds and outer edge of balloons (this project is about 8yrs old)

This one is a little over the rough size you gave to qualify for a small quilt, its 31 x 40 but at least its finished and is now hanging above our bed



Its McKenna Ryan's "Moose Junction" you can see her stuff here

GC - was the Moose Junction from a kit, or did you pick your own fabs? I'm used to seeing less contrast in her stuff. Either way, it's wonderful! Thumbup

(And I loooove candlewicking!)

FB..that pinwheel is cute!

I'm not going to click on ANYTHING until I get my Malware blocker updated. I've ordered AVG, but they haven't processed it yet. My computer started acting up a lot. I ran a scan and found 448 breeches. So many of us have had issues lately..it might be a good idea for everyone to run a Spybot program, Download free AVG, download Windows Defender..etc? These are free and can really help! Just Google them. A lot of them are sneaking into our computers when we download infected sites without realizing they are infected.

FB it was a kit from memory, ahhh yes it came from the states actually but I swapped out some of the fabrics, I kept the water and outer border fabric, I changed the sky behind the geese and the bears adn fish I did in fossil fern (love those dappled fabrics) From memory I changed the mt too, I dont usually buy kits this was from back when I was just getting going and didnt really have a stash. I have been racking my remaining brain cell trying to recall what store I got it from, would have been around 8-9yrs ago and I just remembered - Huckelberry Patch, the service was #1, great help and efficient, friendly and they stuck in my mind because they went above and beyond the std assistance you get nowdays

Looky what I'm working on!


This is the mini for Mr. W.'s uncle's 50th anniversary. Totally unintended, but ALL of the fabrics have gold threads in them Thumbup (you know... Golden Anniversary??)

So, it's currently 14" square. I don't know if there will be a border or not; either way it won't be larger than 17" b/c I want to use a FQ for the backing. All the fabs (including the backing) are from a FQ pack I bought on last week's Shop Hop (WOW- only one week ago!) plus the lightest fabric came from my stash.

Working title is "Golden Celebration", but that might change after I quilt it.

Hmm... looking at the thumbnail pic, it kinda looks like a ship's wheel. I wonder if I can come up with a clever title from that... too bad the celebrants aren't water people (notwithstanding the Minnesota roots).

The pattern is Storm at Sea, with 'different' shading/coloring. Blocks are 2", 4" & 2x4". Paper foundation pieced (of course). LOTS of little points to match up!! :hammer:

FANTASTIC FB! lovehearts I wouldn't have guessed that was a storm at sea design. I had to look close to see it! Thumbup It seems appropriate that you've used a Storm at Sea pattern? If the couple has been married 50 years..I'm sure they've seen their share of storms..such is life! lmao The golden threads..are fun too? I like the symbolism...whether intended or not. I wonder if the couple will catch that little detail?

Tank you, tank you. I had the same thought about 'seeing their share of storms', though I know nothing as a fact. azn

This morning as I passed it, something doesn't look quite right. I think I need to play with borders a bit.

I supposed quilting it with gold thread would be overkill?????

It may be a a Storm at Sea pattern with a ships wheel type look, but it could easily represent the storms of life with a circle of life type theme too....
You have to know that in 50 years of marriage they had to have persevered thru some storms! And if they have kids they are continuing the circle of life or the circle is representative of the wedding band too! Just a thought.

Guess I should read all the posts before replying...I see that I had the same thought as AOL....sorry for the "copying".. Embarassed

I LOL about copying Bearfoot. lmao It just shows how perfect FB's symbolism is? Besides..if you agree with me..I like your opinion? Thumbup lmao

FB..are you planning on writing a note that details the symbolism? I think it's pretty clever..and non quilters probably wouldn't notice any of it? lovehearts

I dont know how I missed FibreBabbles quilt but I found it now, its beautiful, would never have realisedit was storm at sea pattern, thats so cool what you have done with it. Any more progress with it (what I really mean is pics, any more pics????) YOu are doing a great job, its really neat.

Thanks for compliments on my quilts, I need to get back to sewing. CC what one of McKenna Ryans takes your fancy? A lot of fabric in hers is scrap bits, makes it easier and more do-able. Hummerlou does beautiful ones of hers, so does BearFoot and Breezepines

(Sorry I missed this question earlier!)

I'm really not one to belabour symbolism.

Wow, that sounded uppity, didn't it? doh

I will put info on the label (this weekend, I hope!!) that says the name of the quilt - it named itself "Golden Voyage" - and that it's a Storm at Sea variation. Maybe I'll find a quote that has to do with weathering storms... but I can't imagine writing much more than that.

Seriously, the gold in all the fabrics, the wheel/ring design and all the other stuff that screams the theme were completely unintentional. This little quilt really defined synergy: The whole is definitely greater than the sum of its parts. How do you communicate that to Muggles without sounding pretentious?

And, Gimpy? I'll get some decent pictures of the quilting in the next couple of days (I hope!). I'll need to follow up with another blog post, too.

Oh! Side trip! "My" quilt shop has the McKenna Ryan coffeecup COFFEE-themed patterns. :yahoo: I just found them today! Now, seriously: How can I NOT get them?
