Hi all you Friendlies out there!! Part two of the quilt along...just keep on making string plaid blocks!! Here is where I am...I have 14 more blocks to go to make the size quilt I want. How are you doing?? I find these block very fast to make, do you?? Fun, fun, fun!!! I am thinking about setting options and corner stones and borders...I often make part of the borders, etc, while I am making blocks. It goes so much faster if I don't have all the pieces and parts to sew in the end....less chance of a quilt becoming a UFO!!
I received a treasure in the mail....Lookie! Plaids! and purple...what could possible be better? Well, add orange hand quilting...and it is better!! Add a wonderful striped binding...whoohoo! thank you, Finn...so very much for this early Birthday gift. Finn owned her own quilt shop, and has a blog, and is the most wonderful scrappy quilter, and a wonderful friend. You can click here to see her creations.
I got this quilt back from the quilters...Starry, starry night. I love the density of the quilting, with stars of course...and have cut the binding. I am kind of daunted about sewing all that down...about 10 strips of binding.
And my plaid Jewel box came back too! I took a picture with very low light, so you could see the quilting...fabulous!!!
Here is the whole thing...my new favorite for sure. Believe it or not, I cannot find the binding I made for it, so will keep searching for a day of two...there are just not too many places it can be, now are there? Hmmmm....
ATTENTION PINK FABRIC DONATING PEOPLE!!!
Thank you so much, again, for all your generosity...you donated a ton of pink fabrics to a cancer survivor, who makes cancer quilts! Please see Sharon's blog here, and go down to her July 5th post...I think she loves what you all did...Thank you, thank you!!! Good for you!!
Have a great day, and I will try to make some more progress on our plaid string quilt along....how about you?
I have the coolest quilt picture sent by a friend...I will share it tomorrow...by then I will have figured out how to do it!!
