The quilts are all done and today I am celebrating by sewing with my friends at Country School! They will be working on binding all of these quilts while I sew on my Red Center quilt.
I decided to do project this simply because it was something that needed to get done. I didn't really expect it to be fun or the be really helpful in building skills. I was wrong. It was a lot of fun and I learned a few things along the way as well. Here are the last 3 quilts.
Betsy is our resident expert at HSTs. She makes thousands of them and they are always perfect. She probably whipped up this quilt in a day. I didn't even know she was making it! It was in my mailbox when I got back from vacation. I had to come up with something a little different for this quilt. I wasn't going to CC all of those triangles because that would take forever. I didn't think a stipple would look good and then I thought about the leaf meander. I used a light cream thread so that the leaves show up in the blue and the brown. I really like how it turned out.
I liked the leaf meander so much that I did it on this quilt too.
This is the last of the mystery quilts. I love the color palette that Peg selected for her quilt.
I did the wavy crosshatch in a pale blue thread and it worked out perfectly. I think the wavy crosshatch reinforces the beach feel of this quilt.
Now I need to get on to quilting some of my own quilts!
