After enjoying the weekend celebrations of granddaughter’s 7th birthday, I am back home and spending the day quilting.
I pieced this top of blocks from the beginning class blocks at JoAnn Fabrics. I donated the top to SQG and Martha quilted it. Today I added the binding to finish it. It was too difficult to find a dark blue so I used a dark red.
I also finished the quilting and binding on this scrappy comfort quilt for GCQ and the Children’s Hospital. I enjoy just using scrap pieces to put together whatever will make a 12” finished block.
I have quilted the center area of my version of “Carolina Chain”. Work on it is paused while I consider how to quilt the setting triangles and border. This quilt is also a comfort quilt for GCQ and the Children’s Hospital so it mostly needs quilting to withstand washing and use, not fancy quilting.
I love making these blocks as leader/enders so I will have another sometime. Now its time for a break.
