Quilting and Stuff by Knitnoid

QA Wednesday

Quilting Accountability.

Over the weekend I worked on Carolina Christmas and got through the first part of step 4.  At that point I needed to cut more fabric, and if I did, I would continue to work on it when I really needed to finish the DWR so I can start the hand quilting.  So, I temporarily set aside Carolina Christmas, and finished up my DWR piecing last night.

I’m participating the Sylvia’s Bridal Sampler BOW, so I will finish piecing this week’s block and a couple of swap blocks before tackling the borders on Ladder to the Stars.  I continue to work on Oklahoma Backroads as my leader/ender.

It is my intention to sandwich both the DWR and the Music Quilt this weekend so I can start quilting them next week.  As long as my wrists holds out I’ll spend 30 minutes each day on the DWR.  I expect the music quilt will take me several evenings to machine quilt.

Thanks Bari for starting the Accountability Challenge.

  1. Woo hoo! You finished piecing your DWR! I am so excited, and doesn’t it feel GREAT to get that part finished?

    Way to go!

  2. I’m so excited about your finish! Way to go!

  3. So did you get a Blazing star done to your liking yet? If you have any tips, pass them along please! I’m a bit worried after reading your post on the SBS list.

    • After I posted last night I ripped it out and tried again. The diamonds are done now, but I haven’t had a chance to put it all together. Believe it or not, it really is a simply block — if you pay attention, Is started to write how I got it to work, but it was getting lengthy. Tonight I’ll see if I can do a picture tutorial.
