The little doll quilt which was pieced on the treadle has been hand quilted and bound and is ready for it's photo op.
The camera keeps wanting to give it a peachy cast, but it is definitely pink. I cut the pieces for the little kit I promised, so leave a comment or click the follow button and I will enter your name for the giveaway. I will put the directions in a separate post.
I shall use the feline random number generator again for our fair and objective drawing. He is eagerly awaiting his photo op.
My other finish is another Quilt of Valor, which our quilt guild is focusing on this winter. We had a work night in January and there were seven orphan blocks, which were left from a guild project several years ago. They found their way home with me. I made two more blocks, sashed them, added the piano key border on top and bottom and bordered it. Here it is.
I am still working on the snow globe quilt, quilting the borders, but it should be ready for it's photo op soon.
I have been reading Bonnie Hunter's blog, http://quiltville.blogspot.com and was fascinated with her leaders and enders project, Split Nine Patch. It uses 2 1/2in. squares and HST's. Since my 2 1/2 in. bins are over flowing and I use fabric scraps for leaders and enders, I thought "why not?" Little did I know it would be very addicting. So I went from here:
Now you can see why I can't leave them alone. They are now in competition with all of those other projects in my sewing room for priority status. I keep telling them they are a bonus quilt, destined to be completed a couple of years from now, but they are clamoring to have their own project box and dedicated sewing time. We'll see how this goes, they are being very persuasive.
Enough for now,
Keep on stitching'
