My sister requested a quilt for her cabin up in Maine. I started to make a Scrappy Trip Around the World from Bonnie Hunter's website. I've made that pattern several times and I knew it would work up fast and use some of my overflow of 2-1/2 inch strips.
But of course midway I thought...why not put these blocks on point? And maybe turn them different directions...oh no, then I have to piece the sides
ok, so I made a very simple project into a real pain! But at least it is almost finished! (btw...Goldie my cat is not making this process any easier...one block went missing and still has not been found!) Thought for sure once I remade it the block would show up!
The other quilt I'm working on is just starting! Each year my guild makes a quilt to raise money for a local camp for children with cancer, Camp Rainbow. This year the quilt is based on an Irish Chain with flying geese borders in the Kate Triplett's Indigo Quilts book. Of course it was only a photo so I had to draft a pattern (with Kate's permission.)
Then the committee thought it would be good to have applique in the open blocks...because my guild loves to applique. So I drew some designs. Now the blocks are starting to come in and it is sort of exciting to see them! Saturday is the deadline for them...should have a photo of an "almost quilt top" then!
