Saturday morning I worked on my BMQG round robin quilt. Still doing the SID, but it is progressing and I'm deciding on other quilting ideas as I go. I will need more thread, so I'll have to do a little shopping - maybe when I'm at QuiltCon? I'm Pleased with my progress here.
|2015 Finish Along Qtr 1 - first finish!|
and now I've finished the coral one. So definitely not my usual colour, but it looks nice and springy, and I continued that idea by quilting daisies on it. Quilted and bound - it is done!
Last night I was still in the mood to piece, so out came the blocks I won at a VMQG block lotto several years ago now. Laid them out, shuffled them around, tried various smashing ideas, and then got to work. By the end of the night I had a finished top. Things didn't go as smoothly today. In piecing the back I mis- calculated and cut my backing about 5 inches to narrow. This didn't come to light until I was getting ready to sandwich and spray baste. Duh! You'd have thought I would have had that right seeing as I was piecing three extra blocks into the back and had measured it only half a dozen times! A little improv piecing and my back was wide enough. It is all basted and ready to be quilted!
I think that was a pretty successful weekend! Hope yours was at least half as good. I'll be linking up to The Needle and Thread Network later this week.
