My list from last week:
- Work on more blue RSC blocks? ❌
- Pillowcase for Kitty's Aged Elegance quilt ❌
- Quilt up one of the Broken Bricks quilts for Jeff's trip (thank you gift) Nearly finished
- Start quilting the Deco Elegance quilt ❌
- Work on Jeff's insulated grocery shopping bag ❌
- Cut out more black pieces for another Unbeweavable quilt ✔️
I got started on quilting one of the Broken Bricks quilts, this was the one made with the Groovy Garden border fabrics. I am still trying to learn my longarm software so I planned it out again. What I've learned is I really need to learn how to deal with small sashings. When I make the design I think the border quilting will cover the sashing as well, but then I do the quilting and it really doesn't. The same happened here.
|It's going to be another pretty back on this one.|
|This was the simple plan on this one. An edge-to-edge in the|
center portion then a border pantograph around the outside.
I also got started on my Unbeweavable UFO project. When I cleaned up earlier this year I had thrown all the extra bits and fabrics into a project tub and I finally pulled it out. I actually had to arrange the whole quilt to see if I had everything. I did have to spend an hour or two disassembling pieces to recover one of the fabrics but it's now ready for sewing. I think I've also cut enough of the black triangles, but since they're so easy to cut out with my Cricut, I'm just going to sew what I have for now then cut more if I need them.
So, here is my updated list:
- Work on more blue RSC blocks?
- Pillowcase for Kitty's Aged Elegance quilt
- Finish quilting and binding the Groovy Garden lap quilt
- Work on Jeff's insulated grocery shopping bag
- Work on the Unbeweavable lap quilt
Thanks to Linda for hosting the Tuesday ToDo link up. Drop by if you want to see what everybody else is working on.
Sharon that Broken Bricks quilt is gorgeous! Your quilting is really pretty and very inspiring. Your Unbelievable quilt is so striking. Thank you for sharing with To Do Tuesday!ReplyDelete
Thanks Linda. Thanks for hosting the linkup.Delete
Wow! That is some pretty quilting, showing up well on the back of Broken Bricks. & future plans. Will the pantographs be continuous line? I just can't imagine doing that quilting! Bravo!ReplyDelete
I bought the computer with my long arm so it's fairly easy to do the quilting. My main challenge at the moment is learning how to mark the quilting areas and getting them to match the quilt.Delete
I like the unweaveable. Some day I want to do a quilt with the 3-D effect.ReplyDelete
