During two evening this week I finished the quilting on this one! I did the binding today. This is the companion quilt to the one that Mom made. It's from the Judy Hooworth book Quilts on the Double. When you cut the fabrics and sew strips you are cutting and sewing for two quilts. It's a cool technique and I'd like to do another. I quilted both of them identical - Woodgrain panto using YLI Variations thread in the color Teddy on top and So Fine in the bobbin.
I don't have a specific purpose for this one. I think I may keep it to have for a future gift. It would be a nice gift for a man. For now it's getting the lazy label - a Sharpie pen signature.
Here's a close up of 4 blocks.
I used 10.5 yards on this quilt and didn't add to the stash at all this week.
Here's my list from last week:
By the end of November, finish the mini-log cabin blocks worked on it some
Finish quilting the blue/brown quilt - DONE!!
Make Christmas postcards - made a little progress
Dye 4 more gradients - DONE!
Dye the Blogoversary drawingwinner's prizes - the drawing is Thursday! DONE!
Make some progress on the cat cross stitch - yep.
I also loaded the citrus quilt and will get started on it this week. I'm quilting this one using a flannel sheet as batting. I want it to be a lighter summer quilt. I'll let you know how the flannel sheet works!
Here's my list for the coming week:
work on Christmas cards
quilt on the citrus quilt
dye 3 more gradients
work on the log cabin blocks
work on the cat cros stitch
