I'm back to the blog. I've been busy with quilting projects, but some could not be shared (gifts or challenge) and others weren't close enough to being done.
Here's my latest:
I did something I will never do again. I entered a quilt in our Seven Sisters Quilt Show that was not complete. I knew I could get it done and I wanted to (!), but what a mistake. It's due this week and last night I finished the quilting, rinsed it, and put it on the wall to block. I still need to attach the sleeve and do something about the eyes on all the creatures.
|The original pattern did not show the sashings I used. |
The ones with the pattern were very plain.
|Can you see all the "eyes" I quilted in the block.|
I'm thinking of adding sparkle eyeballs for each one.
Following is a table runner I made for our guild challenge.
I finished my top for Bonnie Hunter's 2017 Mystery, On Ringo Lake. I ended up with extra blocks because I made the quilt square. I used the extras to make the quilt below. I originally called it "Ringo Lake Leftovers" but someone changed it to "All That Jazz". It will be the donation quilt for our 2019 Seven Sisters Quilt Show. Bonnie Hunter will be the guest artist the week before the show. We use the quilt as a prize for people who fill out our info survey. Not a bad prize for just telling us how you found out about the show and where you're from. Mark your calendars: June 29 & 30, 2019. Bonnie will be teaching June 24 - 28, 2019.
|All That Jazz. 42 x 42 inches.|
|A friend was moving out of state, so we decided to make her a quilt. |
We each made a block, Anna put it together, and I quilted it.
Can you guess her favorite color combination?
|It was difficult for me to quite each block differently.|
Overall it turned out very good and Barbara was pleased!
Thanks for checking in. It was a lot this time.
