As usual, I was bouncing around on various projects last week. But I have something to show for it this time. I’ve finished my sister’s wedding quilt. It measures 80 x 85 and is quilted with a red variegated or a sand variegated thread on the top and solid red on the bottom. It’s an overall heart/ivy meander on the background and simple out line around each of the names.
Here’s a bit of the detail.
The back is a red, white and black plaid that I found on-line.
Also completed this week is Baby Glow.
The white lines around the stars on the purple fabric glow in the dark — I found that out after I brought the fabric home. It’s also what I used on the back of the quilt. Warm and Natural batting, 36 x 36 and yellow thread.
Have no fear, I’m still bouncing around.
Here are my log cabin blocks I’m piecing. They’ve gotten too big to use as leader/enders, so I’m doing 10 at a time and then a HST square for the Ocean Waves quilt. There are 80 blocks in the pile on the left and 100 in the pile on the right. There are 4 more logs after this round.
And the Ocean Waves quilt?
I’ve made another 100 HST squares this week bringing my total bonus and new to 600 or about 1/3 of the total I need for the quilt. In addition to the log cabin blocks, I’ve pieced a couple of the Ocean Waves block — I’ve got two with the turquoise center, but I’m not sure where I put the other one.
It has been my intention to begin Orca Bay on Friday, but I think I may have to step back and reconsider that — or just stick to the HST square for Ocean Waves — my sewing table is getting crowded as I try to keep all the parts and pieces lined up for these two quilts — at least there’s no chance for me to get the parts mixed up.
