Miss Rosie - Year of Thelma Sew Along Parade

It's parade time.   Remember how back in February I asked for folks to sew along any Miss Rosie Quilt Co pattern to help me celebrate the year of Thelma?  Well I ended up piecing 3 MRQC tops and had a few friends sew along.  If you have a quilt for the parade please send me a link to your blog or a pic and I'll add it to the parade.

Another quilt for the Year of Thelma MRQC Parade!

This Lucy was made by my Australian quilting friend Helen.  That's the nice thing about technology, we make quilting friends from all over the globe.  Far away friends, a wonderful gift for the year of Thelma.

And here is an addition that Kristen finished in May that I completely forgot about but am so happy to add to the parade.

Cracked Pots - This happy colorful version has me thinking I need to add this pattern to my 2018 Quilting List.  Read more about this quilt on Kristen blog Meadowbrook.

Here are my three, first up, perfect timing, Due South just got home from the quilter.

Connie from Quilts Plus in Indianapolis finished this top for me.  I'm so happy to have it home I put it immediately on the guest room bed.  A nice January quilt while I'm trying to decide where to travel to this year.  With the temps we're having right now, due south sounds perfect.

I also finished two Lucys

Halloween Lucy
and Falalalala Lucy.

Sinta and Gail also pieced Lucys.

Here is Gail's version of Lucy

 here is Sinta's

And here is Tracey's parade submission


Great job ladies and thanks for sewing along.

I traveled between Christmas and New Years and then came home with the flu.  I'm just now starting to feel better but still have all my Christmas decorations to contend with.  It will be at least another week before I'm back in my sewing room, but I am working on my 2018 sewing goals which is the next best thing to sewing.    I hope to have that list done by next week.

I hope your sewing year is off to a great start, thanks for stopping by.

  1. Due South looks good...and sure sounds great! We are having super cold and snowy weather in NJ now, a trip somewhere warm (like Hawaii) would be great now. But, not this year, we are thinking a summer trip to Vienna and Budapest.

  2. I just love that first quilt you show - it is terrific

  3. You inspire me!! I made one Miss Rosie quilt last year - it's a top not yet quilted called Elizabeth. I'd be happy to send a picture! Carrie's latest book has several I'm putting on my list for this year.

  4. Such beautiful quilts you made all year long Thelma! I enjoyed following and sewing along!

  5. Beautiful quilts. I really like Due! Sorry the flu found you...hope it passes quickly!

  6. Thanks for sharing, Thelma. I love your Falalalala Lucy! I think that I have about 100 Carrie quilts left on my list to make!!
    Last year we went to Kauai and we went hiking in the mountains, kayaking, snorkelling, zip lining, and all that good stuff. If you've never been there, its really an amazing place.

  7. These "Lucy" quilts are so darn cute and now I am thinking a winter blue and off white might be nice......or maybe onto another pattern :)))

  8. I don't want to sound mean but as you don't quilt any of the tops you make can you please label them Quilt Top #. I have been following you for some time now and am amazed at the volume of your work (which is stunning) but part of the process is the quilting which you don't do...

  9. I think they are all lovely but I think the Jellystone one is my favourite. Hope you feel better soon and can't wait to see what goals you have for this year. Mine is to do some quilting every week and get my UFO's done and then start a scrap quilt. Hugs, Susie xx

  10. What a beautiful parade of quilts for the Year of Thelma! Too bad mine didn't get finished .....
