There was a National Quilt Day Sew-in on Twitter over the weekend. For me it was the first time in a couple of weeks where I had a substantial block of time to sew. While I was focused in that I concentrated on my projects vs. spending a lot of time on social media I flitted from project to project but that is what I do.
This is a donation quilt that I finally finished quilting!
I cut: I am finding I actually have time to sew in bits and pieces during the Veteran Quilt Sew-in I host once a month so I cut fabric for star bI made use of leaders and enders:
The veteran quilts are for the We Honor Veteran’s organization and there are leftover 2 1/2 inch squares from the various quilts everyone is making. I am using those as leaders and enders to make more quilts. This is my third one. Stories over here.
As part of the Quilt It Challenge, this is the front of the block for March. It it not completed. I wanted to practice straight line stitching with FMQ, now I am waiting for inspiration for the next step.
The back of the quilted block:
I love how the quilting stands out on the block and I just noticed a couple of areas that I need to add another line of echoing.
These are the triangles left over from piecing the flying geese units in the above blocks. They will become a mini quilt or something, just couldn’t see potential 1/2 square triangles go to waste.
I hand pieced:
These are 3/4 inch hexagons for a doll quilt.
This is a kit I purchased for a table runner. It doesn’t look too promising right now, but I know I need to give it time.
And I shopped:
The words “sale” and “fabric” in one place (LQS) is a no brainer.
My last few weekends have been very busy and it was very nice to have some time to spend in my studio. Sew-in or no sew-in.
Enjoy the journey, Jackie
