I have been steadily working on this quilt that I bought as a kit. I stated earlier that I was channeling Judy Niemeyer methods, but now that I have progressed I find I’m really channeling Bonnie Hunter. If you’ve ever done one of her annual mystery quilts, you can relate. Each week there is a clue, like make 150 HST’s or 250 flying geese. It seems overwhelming at first, however if you divide it up over the seven days, it’s not too bad. For this quilt I’m making, There are 150 nine patches made from 1 ½” squares, then you make them into 25 larger nine patches with plain 3 ½” squares. The vertical sashing has 40 small four patches set on point. I put it all together today, yay – Quilt in a week. Thankfully we still have electricity, PG&E spared us from the mandatory shut down. As you can imagine not much sewing gets done without electricity.
On my frame this week is the butterfly wall hanging. I made this about 4 years ago, started quilting it and took it off the frame for some reason. I am going to finish it this month. I’d say week, but I have obligations this weekend, which involve cleaning and entertaining. Bleh. I also fixed the green and red quilt, so its up next for quilting. I was going to put the Growing up Odd (pattern from Wedding Dress Blue ) top on, but its huge, (110 X 110) and I don’t know what I’m going to quilt on it. Panto or graffiti or feathers or ???
Linking up with Sarah over at Confessions of a Quilt Addict for Can I Get A Whoop Whoop? this friday.
