Finally came up with a name for the circle quilt with all of it’s “planet” looking circles – The Final Frontier from the Star Trek show of years gone by. Mike’s idea. Linking to Audrey’s Quilty 365 this morning and to Confessions of a Fabric Addict and Fort Worth Studio and Crazy Mom Quilts where Amanda Jean has a lovely scrap quilt she is working on.
212 blocks are now done out of the 365+1 (leap year) and I managed to get them all up on the wall yesterday. I just put them straight on the wall but I have been planning on making these rows diagonal – on point with a dark indigo fossil fern fabric in between in a very narrow sashing. But that was too much work to put them up on the wall and try to get them all on point – I know they would not be up there straight for sure. I had thought to wait before I started to sew them all together until all the blocks are done as I didn’t want to many like colors together, but there are so many colors I do not think that will be a problem – maybe I will get started putting rows together – we will see. It could be the next quilt on the frame at this rate.
A few close ups.
I worked on my clam shells also and have them all done and ready to be glue basted! Now maybe I can really get started on these borders?
I was looking at my Diamonds are Forever quilt on the bed the other day and I noticed something – I forgot an area to quilt LOL – this happened once last year I found a small spot on a table topper that had been on the table off and on for several years and all of a sudden noticed a spot that wasn’t quilted – weird how that happens.
Right there! two lines are missing – after I took the photo I got my thread and needle and took care of it right away before I forgot about it.
