No Wind!

Tuesday, February 3, 2015
There was no wind this afternoon and it warmed up to 24F!  I was able to take a picture of Trail Mix--pattern by Mabeth Oxenreider.

Trail Mix 90x106"

Its dragging on the 2 foot drift but I declared the pic "good enough"!  Trail Mix was mostly from my box of Civil War repros.  I bought the fabric for the skinny inner borders because they went with my outer border fabric.  That fabric has been in my stash FOREVER.  The large print made it hard to use, but I like it as a border.  But, I lacked about 2" when I was ready to use it.  ARRRGGGHH!!  Unwilling to cut/piece it I decided to add some leftover trail blocks to the border.  

I also finished the binding on the guild's QOV and I'll take it back at the next meeting.  It didn't use any stash but I can declare it as a finish.

Guild's QOV

Yesterday was spent in the recliner.  Lorri2Rs is much more energetic than I am!  It was a good opportunity to catch up on my binding.  

Pink is the color for February Rainbow Scrappy Challenge.  A few Album blocks yet today maybe.

Using those leftover blocks in the border was a fun way to "surprise the eye". Great idea! And the QOV is gorgeous!

Since I'm working from my basement home office these days I was craving some sunshine and fresh air. I braved that 24 degrees and did a little shoveling to clean off our front walk and porch.

Using the orphan blocks in the border was clever. I like it!

The Guild's QOV is nice and will make the recipient very happy.

A wonderful quilt and a very creative solution to the shortage on the border fabric. Good job on both counts! I love the Quilt of Valor's pattern and your quilting on it is very impressive.

Your blocks in the border lifted this scrumptious quilt to an even higher level of Terrific!

Even now, I have a similar quilt all laid out in my mind, drawings on the coffee table, etc Your quilt has enticed me even more!
