I am sure this post will come as a surprise to everyone since it appeared I had disappeared from blogland. I have been busy quilting even if I have not been busy blogging. First up, there was a request from our guild for "fire" quilt tops. Fire quilts are our main charity program. We make and give quilts to families who have lost their homes to a fire. The year before we gave out 12 quilts and our stockpile was very low. In fact there were no large quilts at all. So I complete two queen size tops. The tops have been passed on to a member who will quilt them on a long arm machine.
|This is a Missouri Star pattern called Four-Patch Star, I use a fabric line called Sundrops.|
|This one was made with fabric donated to the guild. The ladies grouped the fabrics by color and I chose green.|
I am way, way, behind on the Front Porch and Gwennie Medaliion SALs I joined. I did finally get my watermelons stitched for the Front Porch SAL and haved started my vase blocks for the next month.
I will be linking up with Lori of Humble quilts, HERE. You can see the other stitchers progress!
|Two of the vase blocks. I am not too sure about that purple flower.|
|All my blocks so far.|
I have completed all the hand pieced baskets for my Sweet William Quilt and have started prepping the applique half of the blocks.
|36 hand pieced Sweet William baskets.|
I was finally able to layer and spray baste this king sized quilt top in September. This will be our new bed quilt.It finished at 108" X 108"! (This is the same pattern I used for the Fire quilt above.)
|The only space large enough was the deck and I had to wait till we have enough dry days to lay it out.|
|Now I am on to the quilting!|
Happy Quilting, Rebecca
*A note to any other bloggers out there that are classical music lovers like I am. You can get a wonderful station from California online. It is KUSC. There are no commercials! It is member supported and they are having a fund raisning event until Wednesday or Thursday. I downloaded an app for my iPad and my phone. Beautiful music to quilt to!
