I updated the blog from my quilt group "Bound Together" from our January meeting if you want to go check it out.
I put the corner diamonds on the 1st block and finished the 2nd block from the 1857 quilt. I think I reversed the pattern for the 2nd block but it really doesn't matter. I hope I can last with this quilt. I still have one more block to finish for January and last Monday four more blocks were introduced for February. I don't like to get behind so I'm feeling the self-imposed pressure.
I finished Billy's quilt here but as I was finishing the quilting I found a hole smack dab in the middle of one of the white triangles.
I would have understood finding a hole on one of the plaid pieces because they were from Billy's shirts. But to find a hold on a new piece of fabric was rather annoying.
I unpicked the quilting and then the stitching, replaced the triangle, and sewed it back in using small applique stitches. Then I re-quilted around it. It looks great. The quilt is all bound, labeled, and ready for Billy's family.
I made one of these quilts from Cherie Soffe Paine's (I know I'm spelling her name wrong) blog from last year. Actually I made it last year. I did the embroidery a few weeks ago. Maybe next Valentine's Day I'll finally quilt it. Above is a picture of Cherie's original version.
I put Welsh Quilt Study II on the floor hoop ready for intense quilting.
And I put the nosegay quilt on the big frames. I can now quilt upstairs or downstairs depending on my whim.
I finished the 1st block of Sleigh Bells by Jan Patek.
The steeple is quite slanted - I wonder if it will "quilt out" ha!
