I got a fairly early start on Friday Night with Friends because today my HandiQuilter long arm was FINALLY fixed. At least it seems better, so far. The store sent out a technician to change out the card inside the machine this afternoon.
|That green card was replaced with a new one.|
Then I turned my attention to a sewing project. Today I was in the mood to play with one of my UFOs. I had a bunch of blocks leftover from my Rhododendron Trail Quilt and I thought I would turn them into a lap quilt. Because I didn't have many of the half-block-triangles leftover, I originally planned to make lap quilts with a horizontal layout, like this.Bonnie Hunter designed the pattern. I had enough blocks to do a 3x3 layout with 4 extra hourglass blocks.
It would be nice to finish this before Bonnie's next mystery quilt starts, assuming she does another one.

Thanks Lin. I'm liking how it is turning out. I'm glad I decided to follow Bonnie's original pattern for the lap quilt.Delete
The easier setting would have been okay but your extra work was worth it for the lovely special layout. Great job!ReplyDelete
Thanks. I'm impressed with Bonnie's design and definitely plan to make more of them.Delete
