It seems I am out of the piecing stage and onto the quilting stage. Tomorrow I am hoping to get my wedding present quilt on the quilt machine. It needs to be finished for a wedding on Saturday so I need to keep moving on it. Here it is…
I needed it to be just a bit bigger so I added the Moda Marble cream borders around the piano key border. It added about seven inches in each direction to the quilt which was perfect. I have the back already pieced. The top and back need to be ironed though.
I don’t have a real project that I am piecing now so in an effort to get my UFO’s in order, I decided to pull out a UFO. Out came Nine in the Middle.
I haven’t worked on this for over a year…probably longer. This quilt is from Bonnie Hunter’s Scraps & Shirttails: Reuse, Re-pupose, Recycle! The Art of “Quilting Green”. The middle nine patch blocks are done. I even have about 10 blocks completely finished. I am not piecing lots on this yet but I pulled it out of storage so it is closer to happening.
Kelli was home of Friday after work and dropped off a couple quilts that need to get quilted….
I haven’t started my Quilt Square Quilt Along blocks for July yet either so there’s something else I need to get working on….I guess a true quilter is never caught up!!
To see what others are up to, check out Patchwork Times.
I love pink.
I love paisleys.
I love florals.
So I adore this quilt!
The greens and reds give it great color balance, too. Good job, Jo!
so glad you say I am a true quilter because I will never be caught up (laughing in relief)
Glad to know I’m not the only one who feels like I’ll never get caught up! The fact that I keep adding projects to the pile doesn’t help… :)
Teresa and Brenna you said it!!! so true…and yes we just keep seeing new ideas and just keep adding to the UFO pile.
It’s going to be a beautiful quilt, lovely colours. The next project looks interesting too!
