This week I finished a project! You can see it here. That means I have movement in my stash report.
Kelli and I are finishing up a Moda Bake Shop project. I need to get the borders on it and then quilt it. While I am busy doing that, Kelli is busy and off working on other projects.
She brought her Virginia Bound quilt to show me…AMAZING, right??
The pattern is from Bonnie Hunter’s book, Scraps & Shirttails: Reuse, Re-pupose, Recycle! The Art of “Quilting Green”. Kelli likes everything small so she adjust the blocks so they finish at six inches instead.
We started our Virginia Bound quilts when we went to the quilting retreat in Moline last spring. Before we left, Kelli was debating and debating about what fabric to make hers from. I suggested using some of the big scraps that people had sent to us. So often people send us their “crumbs” because they don’t want them. Their “crumbs” are actually strings or pieces that can be cut to strings…way bigger than what I call crumbs.
Well Kelli took those, put them together and made this….
Of course, Kelli stopped with only the center finished and no borders added…that’s classic Kelli. With a little prodding, I could be able to get her to work on some borders. Maybe if all of you leave some comments of encouragement, she’ll get back to working on it!
