2 Doll Quilts for testing battings and some freehand designs
A stack of 9 blocks all pieced. Swoon block. My quilt is named Texas Swoon.
Number 5 or #5 for guild challenge and for a spare bedroom/aka son’s room.
2000 BOM needs label and binding yet but I quilted it this January
2014 – Works in Progress
I’m finding that I’m more drawn to finishing old (OLD!) projects (UFOs) this year. So far, so good. And it feels good. Plus it is more budget friendly! So on this page, I’ll post progress photos as I go instead of holding them all for when the quilt is done. I’m going to post them on this page in reverse order so the current progress is here at the top. I quilt for others during the week and try to get a bit of time for my own project on Sunday and sometimes get a bit on Saturday. Progress is slow!
I quilted K’s graduation quilt! Pieced in 2004, I added a few signatures collected at her party and quilted it.
I finished the Pineapple Blossom quilting and binding.
I finished a kit that included all the fabrics for the top & binding; center printed panel and pieced SnS around the edge & borders. I heard this made a beautiful runner for a large table of family at Christmas so I’ll need to hunt down that photo!
I dug out a Block of the Month from 2000. The pattern was posted each month on the “World Wide Web”, a very new and foreign concept back then. A whole 3-color forum and everything. Now the site is gone and that is probably best. LOL! These 12 blocks were done and yes, some should have been redone, but this UFO is almost done how is yours? 🙂
Some blocks starched and sized –
Center blocks and the sashings –
Completed top (also waiting for a personal turn on the long-arm) – May –
(I know one block sticks out like a sore thumb. Do I quilt that in a colored thread to diffuse the stark cream some?)
I started this Black & Pink Pineapple Blossoms quilt in 2008. It needed the (mostly) HSTs for the border trimmed and all the borders made and attached.
The top is done and now will await a turn on the long-arm for quilting. I don’t have backing for this yet.
January & February:
After completing the embroidery, applique’, and piecing of my tree skirt at the end of 2013, I found the Swirl Table Runner in process and completed that. Neither of those projects had been around too long nor were old.
