Instead of piecing and binding — today’s tasks were quilting and piecing a backing but I will work on stitching down another binding tonight.
Do you remember my plans for a series of string log cabin quilts from the beginning of the year? Well I made all of two tops before going off in other directions (string tumblers, Quilt as you Go blocks for Australia, String diamonds) Now, a fellow Heartstrings member needs help with a project he’s doing to provide quilts for a nursing home with residents who had been homeless (I forget how many he needs in total but 40 something comes to mind). He’s close to his goal but needs a little help so I’m going to send him a couple quilts.
I pulled one of the pieced backings sent to me by Tish and one of the string log cabin tops I pieced earlier this year and quilted it this afternoon.
I chose to do a quick allover swirly version of Dwirling from the Pajama Quilter DVD.
For the second quilt, I pulled a donation top from Cheryl, pieced a backing and I’ll quilt that in the next couple days or so.
