I did get a lot finished this past week, though I didn't work on too much from my list. LOL
From my list, I finished assembling my second Unbeweavable lap quilt. This was a UFO that's been kicking around for more than a year so I'm glad to get that project tub emptied. I really like this pattern, I think I may need to make more of them as gifts.
I also finished my sorta-ugly Leader-Ender project. This one has been kicking around on my sewing table for several months. I have not been in a rush to finish it because I wasn't overly fond of it once I started sewing the pieces together. Somehow, it looked much better in my mind's eye when I was digging through the scrap bin to match that Navy blue border fabric. I finished assembling it and I've already quilted it with the One Song Needle Arts Blossoms Panto 1 pattern
. Very likely this quilt will be donated to our local quilt guild's Comfort Quilts program.
I also finished quilting up the Groovy Garden Broken Bricks lap quilt. I quilted this one up with TK Quilting and Designs' Pretty Posies. This was actually a free pattern she included with her TKQ Sampler Designs
and I really like it. Now that I've given her patterns a try, I'll need to poke around her website and see if there are any other sets I'd like to purchase. The little sashing was quilted with Tom's Sashing
. It blended well with the Posie pantographs.
|This was my original plan, it does not include the|
little sashing pattern I added later.
Finally, from out of nowhere, I felt like quilting up my Eggplant Enchantress lap quilt
. (The quilt pattern on this one is Bonnie Hunter's Blue Ridge Beauty from her Adventures with Leaders and Enders
book.) I quilted it with a funky geometric design. I usually go in for floral pantographs, but my husband really liked it so I decided to stitch it up.
The pantographs on this one actually all came with my ProStitcher computer, but the block I used is available from the designer, Karlee's Border #43
, though it came amended without the circles between the squares. And the border triangle is Chevron Three
by Marie Eldridge. The sashing was Double Circle Continuous
repeated until they filled the space.
Of course, now I have to bind all these quilts. Sigh. Not my favorite part, but it's much quicker now that I've started sewing them on entirely by machine.
So, with that, I update my ToDo list for next time:
- Work on more blue RSC blocks?
- Pillowcase for Kitty's Aged Elegance quilt
- Finish binding the Groovy Garden lap quilt
- Finish binding the scrappy Broken Bricks quilt
- Finish binding the Eggplant Enchantress quilt
- Work on Jeff's insulated grocery shopping bag
