Anyway - long story long, I asked her to bring the stand to our Sew Day so that I could hang and photograph my most recent big finish, the King Clam and while I was at it, several other that I still own and don't have a proper picture of.

This included the three other "beasts" that are our own bed quilts. They range in size between 105" and 110" square and are too big to simply hold up on the porch. The Bento Box in pink batik and indigo was made from fabrics gathered while vacationing in Kauai 2010/2011. The pattern is by Tracy Brookshier (a fellow guild mate) Lava Lamp was made from stash around the same time and I sewed matching shams for them both. For years I rotated those two on our bed Spring/Summer then Fall/Winter. In 2013 the x-Plus took their place year round. I love the mixed scale blocks and layout. You can find the fussy cut bonus HST tutorial on my blog HERE.
It was a nice chance to take a close look at some favorite fabrics and quilting motifs especially on the quilts that have been sitting in a stack unused. The two other quilts were Goats Askew was made as a test score in 2014 for The Improv Handbook For for Modern Quilters by Sherri Lynn Wood of Daintytime. It didn't make it in the book but is linked from her gallery. I posted about it HERE. And lastly, a scrappy cross quilt made from stash March 2011. It is backed with flannel which I use to use regularly.
