Yes I still quilt too and while I’m probably not going to get my last August goal done before the end of the day, I did get a top loaded on the longarm and it’s ready for quilting.
Stephanie announced the Precut for August a few days ago. The choices were a Jelly Roll or 6 inch strips and after giving it some thought … I decided I’d get one of my UFOs to the finished top stage.
Mom and I worked on two quilts while she was here in January – actually we worked on a lot more than two but we were both making 9 patch quilts with hearts. The 9 patch blocks were all pieced from Connecting Threads 2.5 inch strip bundles and the hearts were cut from leftover fabric too. (I’d already made two quilts from this group of fabrics I’d purchased but there was plenty leftover for two more!)
Mom’s top has been done for months and is waiting for me to quilt and she took all my Hearts home with her to appliqué them for me!
Here’s Mom’s top … hers has borders but mine will not.
I put all my blocks up on the design wall and I’ll start working on assembling it this week. You know me… that will take a while so I don’t really expect to have it done before I travel again next Tuesday but assembling it will be on my list of goals for August.
These quilts were inspired by a vintage one I found on eBay, you know how much inspiration I find in old quilts!
