This is finished and ready to share with someone! Once I finished the quilting, one of my charity quilting sidekicks did the binding.
I blogged here about how my group uses the Scrappy Bargello pattern for tops we piece with the help of the women living in a local skilled nursing unit. It was a bit narrow for our goal size, so we added "borders" in between the panels to stretch it out a bit. I like the effect!
And apparently so does Willie!?!
Machine quilting all our charity quilts has helped each of us grow better skills -- I tried out this new (for me) design on this quilt. It broke up the straight line quilting nicely!
I also stayed caught up with the two QAL's I'm following! The hexie one from Faeries and Fibres traveled with me and I'm also adding on as much of the "paths" as I can so when it's time to join the blocks together, I'll be a bit ahead of the game. Block #2 is one the left and #3 is on the right. I think I enjoy puttering with the fabric combinations and fussy cutting as much as the stitching! #4 will leave town with me this month.
The sampler from Little Bunny Quilts continues to grow -- this is the set of 6" blocks I'm making parallel to the 12" ones which are the basis of Alison's instructions. It's an evening's work and I'm having fun using a stash of polka dots!
The quilt that I'm hoping to take with me to my kid sister is still hanging on the back of the chair at the quilting machine -- can I quilt it in the next 5 days? But I did get one of my teaching samples layered and 80% quilted -- only 3 borders left to go -- more about that finish in a couple days when it's finished!!
What to do in June? Set goals or just slide along -- I'll only have access to my studio for 14 days this month? Right now I need to transplant a couple iris before the rain that I hope is headed this way arrives. Check back later for my June "goals" decisions!
