I'm combining my Quiltathon and Design Wall Monday into one post as they sort of go together. I've had a productive weekend. Click photo to see larger version that shows all projects.
I pieced all 27 of the Crazy About Hearts and Stars blocks.
I then realized I only need 10 more quilts for friends/family so I went shopping to get theme fabrics. My nephew like basketball and my great nephew like writing lyrics and setting them to music. So I cut and pieced 2 sliding bricks tops. I have the backings pieced and the batting cut to size from yardage.
Then, I decided to work on some heart blocks that I won in a guild raffle. Of course, none of the blocks were the same size, so I added a frame to them first. Then I added some text I typed into my embroidery machine as the center white areas were plain, plain, plain and that just wasn't going to work. I then squared them all to the same size.
My goals for the week are:
(1) baste and quilt the music quilt
(2) sew the heart blocks into a top (minus the border for now as not sure what size I want the quilt to be)
and (3) sew the crazy stars/hearts into rows (still haven't decided on borders yet)
