When I last left you, I asked what you thought I should work on. There was such a wide variety of answers. I loved reading them all.
When I last left you my Remainders quilt was this far along…
My green leftovers quilt needed borders…
…and I was itching to start sewing some strings to make this.
So what did I do???? Probably what none of you expected. I worked on the Remainders quilt.
The quilt I’m making is Remainders and is from the book No Scrap Left Behind by Amanda Jean Nyberg. Find the book HERE. I got on a roll with the quilt and I just went with it.
This is so not my typical quilt. I don’t do lots of white. I don’t do real basic….but guess what?? I love it.
I kept on going with it. Here it is all ironed-It’s folded in half. I made this big…bigger than the original.
I just love the quirkiness of this. The triangles are all different sizes. All slightly just slightly different.
I even hunted and found a backing…It’s a thrift store find, thus making this one of the cheapest quilts I’ve ever made.
While I was making one backing, I decided to make two…one for another flimsy quilt top here waiting to be quilted.
I reminded myself that my goal is to not let my flimsy pile get too big, so I loaded it right away.
Not only did I load it right away…
I started quilting it right away. After coming back from appointments one of the days last week, I finished the longarming.
I am totally in love with this quilt. When I was making it, my plan was to put it in a pile to be gifted. I don’t know now. I really like it and it will currently be hard to gift.
For now, it’s in a pile that needs to be bound.
From there I loaded another quilt right away. Do you remember my Two-Step quilt?
Here is the picture from the book. I, of course, made mine bigger.
The quilt is in this book. You can find the book HERE on Amazon.
I debated on what to do for the quilting…Straight line quilting won out.
One of the favorite things for almost everyone who has a longarm is unrolling the quilt after the quilting is done. I snapped a picture. It’s the time you start to get a good glimpse of how the quilt is going to look all finished.
I’m super happy with this one. I’m so glad I made it…just cute.
This one went on the “to be bound” pile with the other one.
Being I still had more flimsies here, I decided to keep going. One of the hardest things for me to find time for is longarming. So, being I was off work still, longarming is the job I should work on. So…on went another.
This one is a charity quilt. Sadly, I don’t remember who donated it.
I kept it aside because it has pets on it. I will donate it to the next pet rescue group that asks me for a quilt for their fundrasier. I always have someone who asks so it will be nice to have one already done.
It’s loaded but I haven’t done anything else. Sometimes, loading it is half the battle of getting the quilts done.
That’s all I got done last week. My medical appointments took up much of my time as did my hospital stay. I’m anticipating a slow couple of days around here trying to get back to myself and then hopefully I can get back at it.
I have a few more quilts that I would love to do some longarming on including my Double Wedding Ring.
