After finishing the first 2 parts for Bonnie Hunter’s new QAL Good Fortune, I thought I would keep going on some projects.
The blocks are finished now for my Christmas Cheer quilt. Now the sashing and borders just need to be put on. I think I will be able to get this finished by the end of the weekend.
I think this will be so pretty and cheerful when it’s done. I had a piece of a panel that I found in a sale bin at one of my LQS. After digging through my scrap bins, I had enough coordinating fabric to make wonky log cabin blocks with the words in the middle. The fabrics are from all of my favourite designers and carry lots of memories of past projects with them. This quilt will be a charity quilt when it’s finished.
After dinner I decided I needed more time with my machine so I finished up the blocks for my other project with Christmas fabrics. Again it started with leftover bits from panels.
After DH went to bed I finished the blocks and squared them up. After digging out my design board from the storage room and sorting my layout I desired that one of the borders will be a pieced one of alternating squares of the leftover fabrics and a few extras from my scrap bin to make the border long enough. I think I have finished piecing the border so will try to get this one done as well this weekend.
I should manage because the only other thing I have going on is our Christmas meeting at our local Guild. A potluck lunch, a presentation from one of our members who is a dyer, spinner, weaver and hooker will be interesting and of course Sharing when our members showcase their latest creations. My quilters have several finished projects to show off and I know that there has been a lot of basketmaking, spinning, knitting, felting and sewing by other members. It will be a fun meeting with only a short business meeting. I’m hoping that someone will bring something to eat with onions and garlic. I only get to eat them when DH is not around due to his severe allergy to the whole onion family.
Have fun with fabric and enjoy your weekend with much laughter and family time.
