This week I worked on this quilt top, “Place Your Bet” from a tutorial by Sarah at Confessions of a Quilt Addict. She’s hosting a quilt-a-long called Rockin’ Rectangles for her upcoming Hands2Help Comfort Quilt Challenge. It’s a quick to cut and easy to sew quilt, great for stash busting too. I used two 5″ stackers, a yard of blue solid for the sashing and about 1 and 5/8s yard of white background.
I think it will be a good donation quilt for a young boy, space, planets, stars, and astronauts, but then again, I know a few young girls who are aspiring space explorers. I’m sure the recipient will appreciate it 😉 This quilt is the first of the series, I really like the latest one, called Hip to be Square. I need to find some more coordinating stash to make one.
I’ve been quilting on the Forest Floor quilt, I’m about 65% done. All the ‘fun’ blocks are done, now just the multiple borders and corner stones. Sorry no pictures yet. The weather has been rain for the whole week. The light just isn’t good enough for a decent picture of the quilt.
The rain also postponed the installation of the new window in my sewing room. I need to empty out most of my stuff/stash before that project can happen. A project in itself, but I guess I’ll do it this weekend. I just need to put it all in the room across the hallway, which is my youngest sons room. He’s at school, so he won’t mind. It is very tempting to stage a take over though. His room is larger, with a skylight and a bigger closet. I’ll try to show restraint.
