This quarter has me staring directly at several important deadlines. First up is a Quilt of Valor, to be awarded 5-5-19. You can see the general scheme below.
Second is my niece’s high school graduation. As you may recall, she has an interest in a quilt with yellow, blue and black fabrics and with a secondary design.
Third is another niece’s high school graduation quilt. She asked for a yellow and blue quilt. All the blocks are made (maybe more than I need as I had counting issues while working on this project…).
My next priority is a wedding quilt for my daughter and her fiancee. They are getting married in September.
These last three projects are not time sensitive. However, the two queen size quilts are both pin basted and I have few pins in my trusty pin container. So, I will need to get some more quilting done so I can use the pins in the wedding quilt. And, yes, I have bought some pins recently but this might be the incentive I need to get these long term projects moved along.
Carol Doak designed these two color blocks for her yahoo group. The red sections are almost quilted, I am struggling with which thread to use on the areas with the holly fabric.
The variable Ohio Stars were exchanged with some members of a group on Facebook. The design is based on one shared by Bonnie Hunter, we chose to use 30s repro fabrics. And I chose to make it MUCH bigger.
This was started Fall 2018 in a Sue Rasmussen class with my guild. The next step is to attach the background.
Most of these projects are chronicled here https://ponderingitall.blog/2019/01/18/2019-1st-quarter/
I am very hopeful that this quarter will bring several finishes!
