Well the last few weeks I've been going back into the sewing studio. I quilted and put binding on 3 quilt tops that my friend had made and gave them to her family. I absolutely forgot to take pictures of those. However, I finished two of my quilts that I gave to two cousins in Birmingham, Alabama. They love them so much already. The colors in these photos are not true and are bad presentation of the actual quilts but this is all I have.
This is the start of April's scrap quilting club project called Chain Reaction published in Quiltmaker's Magazine March/April 2012 issue. You can see more ideas by clicking Quiltmaker. I have almost 4 of 7 rows shown here.
I have those 4 rows pieced. Now I need to make blocks for the remaining 3 rows (30 blocks).
Apparently because I just LOVE works in progress, I started machine embroidering the "Names Above All Names" quilt. I plan to give this as a gift. I have about 20 more blocks to make. If you want to see all the block names, click this link: http://www.embroideryonline.com/p-48535-name-above-all-names-quilt.aspx
I want to make a charity quilt with fabrics I received from Karen. I got out two GO! dies and started making signature blocks. But wait a second, I didn't make signature blocks.
I used some Kona cotton I had in my stash for the background. Here are the first 16 blocks I made. I plan to make many, many more in all colors. I could set them this way but I would have to worry about all those seams matching up.
So, I decided to set them this way. I think I like the background space in this layout because it's not the norm. I have about 90 blocks cut but don't have any plan at this time.
I have a lot of scrap quilting club photos I need to upload. I'll try to blog again soon. Until then, happy quilting!
