The super-secret quilt was finished and delivered yesterday. I’m very pleased with how it turned out. My friend Margaret quilted it for me. I’m grateful she was able to do it quickly.
Now on my design wall is a bunch of test diamonds for the next charity quilt. I used EQ7 to do the layout (just diamonds and setting triangles with sashing) and bought some rulers/templates with the hope that they’ll make the cutting process easier. What I did this morning was easy enough, but I won’t know until I add some sashing if the units will play nicely with each other. After I confirm that everything will fit together correctly, then I’ll cut more for the “real thing.” I’ll just kit them up at that point and take them to the next Stitchers meeting and do the sewing there.
So that leaves me with the next personal project. What will it be? I was gifted years ago with a fat quarter bundle of indigos that I’ve always loved but never had a pattern in mind for. Since they were all blue, I’ve added some beige/tan FQs and some maroon ones for a more well-rounded color palette. I have found a pattern I like, so I think I’ll work on that next. I don’t have a purpose for it, but I don’t think that’s a requirement, now is it?
That’s all for me, head on over to Judy L.’s page and see what everyone else is working on.
