An Irish chain using more 30's plus a bit of yellow. Please see everyone's design walls at Patchwork Times. Last week I had some finishes and Nick (favorite son in law) helped me take pictures--
Yellow tilted rails. This quilt had languished in the closet for almost 10 years waiting for borders. Used 16 yards.
Patchwork Among Friends, its a personal favorite. I estimate it used 20 yards. It was a challenge among Liz and Marilyn from Texas and myself. We were to use the pattern Four-Patch Plaid from the book Nickel Quilts by Pat Speth. We could change the pattern as desired. I used the pattern as written--king size.
Liz used MAM blocks for her border. She selected dark scraps to frame the top.
Marilyn used her 30's stash and made a piano key border. It was a great challenge, use our stash to make the top. Next we're going to make Mt Hood from the same book. I doubt I would have finished this quilt this quickly but I didn't want to be the only one who didn't! I love my quilt and its going on my bed. Thank you Liz and Marilyn for the encouragement!
Last weeks goals were just that--goals! I did finish binding my quilts and worked on Mt Hood and Trail Mix but I didn't load another top or work on a Rainbow Scrappy block. Instead I played with grandchildren.
- Load a top
- Rainbow Scrappy block
- Finish Mt Hood bits
- Cut Summer at the Lake setting blocks
