At least it is still Friday in Portland (OR). If I had finished it yesterday, I’d have had a quilt holder for a better photo, but a sofa pose will have to do.
When there is no deadline, it is easy to do a little each day, so while I’ve been quiet I’ve been pinning quilts (two more pinned) and quilting a bit at a time. Since there were no major quilting design decisions, a daily report didn’t seem necessary. I had considered something fancy on the plain blocks, but I decided I needed practice on basics more. So I did a meander all over–even the borders. What I really need to learn (and got better at) is stopping in the middle of a curve and then continuing smoothly.
Here’s a closer look at the quilting.
I had a backing fabric in my stash that works perfectly.
Whereas the border picks up only the red and yellow, the backing adds the blue.
Next I’ll cut the sashing for the other two and make up kits to take to my guild retreat. I have a few other projects to prepare as well. Most everything I plan to sew will go quickly, and I don’t want to run out of projects, so there is a lot of cutting in my future.
For those interested in making the 7-inch block, here is a link to the tutorial on Quilters Gallery
