PALMATEER POINT QUILT-A-LONG

I just finished this small Palmateer Point quilt-a-long that Lori of Humble Quilts organized.  I love the way it came out!  Thanks, Lori!

Palmateer Point


As you may know, I love garage/estate sales.  I got the printed sayings from one such sale and have made a couple little quilts.  I already sold one of them and I made this one with some left over bow tie blocks from a block exchange.  I had used most of the bow tie blocks in a couple wall hangings. and these 8 worked perfect for this one.  It can either be a wall hanging or a place mat.


Saturday I was looking for some Christmas fabric panels and couldn't find them, so I decided I needed to organize my fabric closet.  It used to have fabric separated by color, but was a big jumble of mixed up fabric, so I took everything out and re-stacked it.  I also am taking some fabric to donate.  I need to get busy and make some scrap quilts with all the scraps that I have.  Between that and getting ready for Christmas and a trip, I will be very busy for the next 7 1/2 weeks!  Guess where I found my Christmas fabric?  ........yes, it was in the bin of Christmas/flannel fabric where it belonged!  I just didn't dig deep enough.  It's just as well that I spent some time getting better organized.

Your Palmateer Point is wonderful. Love the variety of fabrics. Makes me want to hurry and finish mine.
Cute creation from the saying and bow tie blocks.
Funny story about finding your Christmas fabric panels. I would probably go through that process and still not find what I wanted. :)

I followed Lori's quilt project, but didn't make the blocks. I do plan to, hopefully soon. I'm wondering how several would fit together for a larger quilt. I love your little "Friends" saying; cute idea you had with it. I need to regroup my fabric and the entire sun room! You would faint if you saw it today! I'm beginning to get my "want to sew' back a bit. Hopefully I'll accomplish something before the end of the year! Wish I had your energy! ---"Love"

Two terrific projects Ruth and you are an ace when it comes to finding fabrics at garage/estate sales. A good clean/tidy up in the fabric cupboard is never a bad thing. Glad you found that fabric.

Your Palmateer Point quilt is so pretty, I love the colors. I saved her instructions but haven't started on it yet. Maybe someday. I do like yours! The little bow tie project is very cute, too!
