Since last month, I finished a couple of projects.
This "Bricks and Stepping Stones" (pattern by Bonnie Hunter) was a healing quilt, given to a group that provides support for children who have lost a parent. Made with scraps of novelties and 4-patches as leader/enders, I quilted it on my new Pfaff Quilt Expressions 4.0 (known affectionately as "QE4"). I'm not much of a machine-quilter, so I did straight lines around the larger blocks. I wanted something to anchor the red and white 4-patches so I sewed a button in the middle of each one.
Asian Anvils (a set of swap blocks that had been appropriately aged) is now a high school graduation gift for a close friend of D#2.
Notice the beautiful swirls of quilting (by my local long-armer) to set off the sharp angles of the anvils.
The leftover William Morris tesselated stars went together nicely for D#2's college friend who is the youngest person I know in the Bill M. Admiration Society. QE4 and I quilted this one too.
Played with some scrap blocks I've collected for the past couple of years. This set is 30's repros and I think it will make a nice little baby quilt.
Fell in love with the fresh colors and great patterns in these charm squares. Pattern is from a "Schnibbles" book I borrowed from Pat. Still need to finalize the arrangement.
When Nancy started playing with granny square blocks, I got hooked too. Have a bright colored stripe for sashing for this set. Not sure about border yet.
