I am quite pleased with the amount of quilting I managed to get done on Saturday evening and a few minutes stolen since then. My May projects can be seen here.
I have managed to work on everything I had listed, but my main focus became the Dresden plate (dilemma here).
I decided I was ready to be done. I didn’t want to make any more blades to make either of the quilt options larger and went for one large quilt. I used a print for the sashing and solid for the cornerstone. I think the sashing width should have been larger, but I am done.
While piecing the Dresden plate quilt I used the sashing pieces to this quilt as leaders and enders so this one is now ready to baste, quilt and bind:
The other major project I worked on was the quilt for my Granddaughter Grace. I found the backing while on vacation and now was as good a time as any to work on it. I just have the binding left to do:
Side note. Has anyone used this fusible adhesive spray before:
I used it to apply my Dresden plates and centers to the quilt squares. I wasn’t going for a permanent hold but I did have difficulty with the results. Have you used it in the past? Did you like it? Why or why not?
It was amazing how much I was able to get done in a short period of time. I am goal driven for much of my life so I try to not be so much so in my quilting life. It’s a good feeling to have accomplished something but I am sure I will go back to my playing self.
Enjoy the Journey, Jackie
