Sunday I put one of Kelli’s quilts on the quilting frame. This is from American Patchwork and Quilting’s June 2010 issue. The quilt is called Odds and Ends.
Once that one was finished, I loaded another quilt right away.
This one is mine. It is Hand Me Downs from Bonnie Hunter’s book, Scraps & Shirttails: Reuse, Re-pupose, Recycle! The Art of “Quilting Green”.
I didn’t get this one finished….finishing it is on my to-do list for tonight.
Saturday as Kelli and I were sorting fabric, we took the plunge and we each cut out another quilt…I know I wasn’t going to start another project until my UFO’s were under control-I know-I know-I know. But I did it and am glad I did. For years Kelli and I have wanted to make the Texas Braid quilt from Adventures with Leaders & Enders: Make More Quilts in Less Time! bit neither of us have cut it out. With all that fabric and scraps just waiting to get put into something, we decided why not just cut it out as all the scraps were there. Honestly, I am not going to start sewing on mine yet. I really am just concentrating on get quilts through the quilting machine right now.
