What’s On My Design Wall August 22, 2011

I’ve finished True Friends.  I had left over pieces from the front, so I included them on the back of the quilt.


The quilting is a simple grid. I used a yellow thread, so if you click on the picture to enlarge it the quilting should show up.

With this quilt, I’ve nearly used up my sticky batting.

I’ve also been working on my Procrastination Challenge and I’m ready to move on to the next project.  There are no pictures for the step I’ve been working on since it was “Spring Retreat Mystery – Design”.  You’ll have to trust me that I’ve come up with the design.

So, I’ll now be working on this:

Looks like I’ve got borders in my future this week for Candy Sunflower Seeds.

It’s another finish.  This my UFO for August off of the “To Be Quilted” list.  Now on to those red and white square in a square blocks.  The fabric is washed and there is no other pressing quilting commitment.

Procrastination Challenge – Report 2 August 6, 2011

Yes, I’ve finally finished the seam on the back of the Green and Cream quilt. Of course there are three more rows to do, but the challenge was just to ‘finish partial finished rows‘.  I can now in good conscience set this aside and do something else from my bag of  “UFO Quilt Steps”.

I promise this was not rigged.  Well, admittedly I didn’t put the next step of the Green and Cream quilt in the bag until I pulled the next challenge, but still.  Since I finally settled on a design for the Row Quilt and bought the fabric last week, I’ve been itching to work on this quilt.  I knew if I had the fabric washed, I couldn’t hold back, so now I’ve got to wash the fabric so I can start making those square in a square blocks.

Of course I’ve not totally focused on the Cream and Green quilt.  I was supposed to be quilting the Crossword Puzzle quilt, but got stymied when I discovered the backing scrunched.  So I worked on Mom’s Chain of Stars, this month’s UFO.

Yesterday I decided to quilt the Crossword Puzzle quilt on the longarm and now have a rental appointment.  But what to do with the sticky batting?  Cut it up and work on baby quilts.  Mom’s Chain of Stars is now quilted, bound and labeled.

Since I need to wait for the Row Quilt fabric to wash, I’m going to see about quilting another baby quilt. I still have a lot of sticky batting.

I finished the top.  In the morning I think I’ll quilt it.

August’s UFO August 3, 2011

Judy, over at Patchwork Times has picked the UFO # for August.  It is # 7.

#7 on my “complete the top” list is a peach and green Chain of Stars — the same pattern as  July’s UFO finish.

After I wrote the pattern I asked my mom to test it for me.  This is as far as she got.  My intention is to finish it and then give it to the next great grandbaby – if it’s appropriate.

On the ‘to-be-quilted’ list is Red, White & Blue Baby 2.  It’s not listed as #1 on my list, but I finished #7 off this list back in March.

Stay tuned to see which one — if either I work on this month.  In the meantime I’m off to finish sandwiching the Crossword Puzzle quilt, but you can check out what others finished off their UFO list over at Judy’s.
