I decided to make two baby quilts out of that jelly roll using the same color scheme. AND I still have some strips left over! Of course I might use some of them to add on to what is on the wall right now, but I am almost out of back ground fabric so those strips might end up in binding instead.
Everything is just stuck up on the flannel right now – the 4 patches are sewn together but the rows aren’t done yet.
I have enough blocks to make it a little wider I just have to sew some of this together first so I will have room for it on the wall.
Things are kind of gathering up on the end of the quilting frame - the Rainbow quilt is awaiting borders, the Common Bride quilt is waiting for me to figure out what I want to do with it next – this is one of those quilt tops that you really think you want to make and then when you get started with it you loose interest in it. Maybe later in the year I will get back to it and the Floral Fantasy (William Morris in Applique) I somehow lost interest in both of them right now. As you can see I have some of the jelly roll strips laying over this too, the background fabric and the quilt from yesterday. I should get my new walking foot any day now and then I will see about machine quilting straight lines of some sort on that one probably but maybe I will decide to hand quilt one of these baby quilts – I’m not sure – I have thought of using Perle Cotton and do the kind of big stitch quilting for something different – if you use that thread what size do you get for the quilting? – I see it comes in a variety of sizes. I would have to order it if I decide to use it as there is none around here that I know of.
Of course I haven’t given up hand quilting!! I actually got in a little work today on the frame after I moved some things out of the way. Bow Tie Medallion – a little progress is better than none. I might even get a little more done on it today.
Last night while watching the news I picked up the Patchwork of the Crosses and got another block attached to the row – one more block to go and I will be able to add this one on to the bottom of the quilt.
