Pixel Play Challenge Project Quilting

It's time once again 4 this week's project quilting. Sounded simple enough to me, pixels.
 Of course I knew what they were and so used my friend the internet to find an image that I could turn into a quick and easy quilt project. An image that came up was a darling little dolphin that immediately reminded me of my sweet granddaughter Caroline who has her stuffed dolphin, Dolphy.
Dolphy is Pink and she really loves to carry him around with her. Not having much choice of my pink Fabrics I was lucky to get the perfect fabric for this project that allowed me to show a bit of dimension in the piecing just using squares. Okay, I can do this!
But, it took me much longer than I ever figured it would. Of course then I was unlucky enough to end up with a problem with my back, probably the ruptured disc that I fight with on an ongoing basis. But starting Thursday I created a portrait of dolphy.
The pink dolphin will go and live with Caroline after our local quilt show. Don't expect to win any awards however I know people will enjoy seeing it :-)
Meet Dolphy!

Clue 7 and the Reveal

Bonnie popped in on her blog to post not only a quick quilt cam but also a little intermediate clue. Getting us ready for the reveal that showed up on the final Friday of Clues.

Click on the link and you can see where so many of the Quilters for partaking of the mystery have gone with their reveal information.
The reveal was everything I had hoped for a wonderful quilt even though I changed all of my colors for my own purposes it still turned out great! My substitutes worked out just fine. Makes me almost wish I decided to do the whole quilt instead of just a portion. I didn't get a chance to do all the blocks I did as many as I could in a couple of days with all the regular activity around our house. When I took the picture it kind of turned out a little bit crooked and definitely I didn't hang it up correctly but, gives a good idea of what I've got in store.
As I was doing the pressing VOILA I remembered I had this little tiny iron that I purchased …

Good Fortune clue number 4

As many people had already speculated there's some string piecing going on in this project. Of course Bonnie being who she is, gave people options you could traditionally string piece onto very thin paper. You could strip piece without using any paper. You can just cut the cop out version which is rectangles of the correct size in different fabrics in the orange family which is Bonnie's color for this clue.

This is where my greens will come in... lots and lots of different colors of green anything from a very blue green a very light happy limey green or a nice medium green or even a deep dark Hunter forest green.  Whenever I teach a class that using greens or when people ask can you put this green with that green I always tell them of course! All you have to do is look at nature All Greens go together :-)
Indeed while we were in Hawaii there were many many shades and tints and tones of green and they all looked beautiful altogether.

Project Quilting challenge 10.3

This new Project Quilting Challenge number three is a fun one "Bigger than a Breadbox"... It can be any color any project any theme as long as it measures at least 16 by 8 in.
It's nice to have the freedom to create something simple and something that in this case will be very useful. Every year my quilt group in American Fork,  Utah makes  placemats and mug rugs for Meals on Wheels to be delivered to their patrons sometime in December.
 So for me this cute Santa and remnants from my stash came together for this Project Quilting challenge Bigger than a Breadbox.
Just some simple quilting and someone will be happy to receive it come the Christmas season.
