Done, Done, Done! I hit my "creative" flow last night at 7:30, and sewed, sewed, sewed. As the picture shows, I DID decide to use my left over #2 blocks for the border. I needed to put together 52 more in order to have the completed border---I didn't mind making them one bit. I was in "sew-mode" last night! I think I'll be gifting this one to my oldest daughter, Cassie. She has a queen size bed (allll to herself), and doesn't have a quilt for it.
This wallhanging is what I'm even MORE proud of. I needed to sew four more complete Orange Album blocks---that didn't take too long, though. I wanted to use of ALLLLLLL of my "left-over" pieces since I didn't use the on-point setting for the quilt. So, I tinkered with arrangements of those little corner blocky things from step #3, and found a way to arrange them in the border. Yay me :0) An additional 16 needed to be put together, but again---not a big deal. 30 minutes later, they were done. I also added four blue corners to the border to make it complete :0) I'm very pleased, and the colors are FUN, BRIGHT, and EXCITING!
So, today came the time to play with some block designs for the 6.5" "Creamsicle Thank You block" for Bonnie. I created these two and will be sending both her way. I'm also going to go through my stash for the perfect fat-quarter to include in the package. It realllllllly is the least I (we) could do.
I hope all of your OC's are coming along nicely as well.
So, for the next week, I have a few goals:
- Finish Cassie's 30's quilt (might NO LONGER be hers now that OC will be hers)
- Sandwich and quilt OC Full quilt
- Sandwich and quilt OC Wall-hanging
These goals MUST be completed BEFORE I start the Boxy Stars or the Chunky Churndash quilt-alongs that some ladies are taking part in at Quiltville-Chat.
