I’ve gotten a lot accomplished this week, being asked to stay home really hasn’t been that bad and I have to admit getting things checked off my “to do list” has been gratifying.
I finished two UFO’s from last year.
A churn dash baby quilt. I’ll be donating this quilt to a local charity. The quilt measures 36 x 36 inches. I used a pattern from Camille Roskelley’s book Simply Retro.
2. My RWB scrappy log cabin picnic quilt. Our city has a lovely water show and fireworks display for July 4th celebrations. This quilt measuring 56 x 70 inches will be perfect for hubby and I to sit or lay on while we enjoy the show.
My new projects completed this week:
Aqua-Red Star Baby Quilt. This quilt will also be donated to the same local charity. I was actually able to make 2 identical quilts. The fabric used was from an old Riley Blake line by Mind’s Eye. Hopefully, I will get the second quilt finished next week.
- Using twelve (12) 10 x 10 inch squares of fabric- one print and one background fabric
- I created 24 half square triangles – squared to 9.5 x 9.5 inches
- Arrange 12 of the triangles into a star pattern as shown below
- Lastly I added 4 – 9.5 x 9.5 corner squares of background fabric
Floating Stars Baby Quilt: My last finish for the week was a custom ordered baby quilt. I used left over layer cake squares from an older Cotton and Steel collection to create the floating star layout. I didn’t have a pattern, she requested stars so I sketched out something that would work with the amount of fabric I had on hand and just winged it.
The quilt measures 36 x 48 inches. My customer also wants me to make a couple of burp cloths to match – I should be able to finish those today and mail in the morning.
I’ve already pulled my fabric out for my weekend project!
Enjoy your weekend and stay safe!
