As I mentioned in a previous post
, our SBAMQG
is kicking off our newly formed Charity committee with an ambitious event: 31 Quilts in 31 Days - not just tops but bound, finished and given away.
Because I'm not
disciplined - I dropped everything and took
this excuse to ignore my life and dive right in. Creating my own original design has been nagging me. Rather than following a pattern and whipping out simple quilts in a timely manner, I fiddled day and night to create these: Thumbs Up, Bikes On Point and Tweet Tweet Two
3 for 31
|Thumbs Up 50"x64"|
|Bikes On Point 52"x60"|
|Tweet Tweet Two 41"x50"|
Last night I found the perfect flannel backing for one, an OK idea for piecing the backing of another and came up empty for ideas on the third. I've got to dig the buckets a bit more and am so looking forward to when my fabric is all organized on my new shelves.
Swirl - The Beginning
It was fun to bring the finished quilt from Sunday's workshop
to share at the guild meeting on Monday night. One of the gals sewed her swirl to the back of a jean jacket which was brilliant. I'm SO excited to get back to this technique before all of the hints and tips leave my head!
Because I had made a Greek Key log cabin before, this method of taking it up a notch wasn't totally foreign and when I made a mistake and skipped a color, Karin showed me how to insert the missed round - whew, glad there was a fix.
Happy to have Swirl done for the Linky Party at Finish It Up Friday
with Crazy Mom Quilts and adding Tweet Tweet Two to the mid-month check in at ALYoF
Have you seen Julie's new pattern Tunnel Vision
? - love, love it.. and details are coming soon for a Mini-Modern Challenge Contest
at Ellison Lane Quilts...So there you have it, my short-term and long-term goals.
Linking up to WIP Wednesday
with Lee at Freshly Pieced. I'm not on instagram and have a dumb phone but those of you normal people can check what she's been up to with her tiny paper-piecing bits.
