I set a goal of 40 veteran’s quilts for 2015 and I’m already half way there! Our meeting is tonight so I set a goal last week of getting as many quilts as I could to take tonight. I’m glad I did because otherwise I’d have nothing to post about today except to report on all of the naps that I took yesterday. Today I’ve been catching up on laundry and other chores that were ignored the past few days.
The newsletter isn’t done either. I can barely compose one sentence but hope to have the newsletter out tomorrow.
Meanwhile here are some of the pretty quilts that my quilt club will be delivering to the local veteran’s hospital. We support patients the dialysis and chemo departments. They make the tops and I quilt some of them.
The day after I finished quilting this one (with a ribbon meander) I saw another quilt from this pattern on a blog that I regularly read.
I use the wavy cross hatch a LOT on these charity quilt. It’s so fast and it looks great. With some blocks it works best when the starting point is the center of a block instead of the corner. This block is basically a 4-patch. By starting the cross hatch in the center of the patch I get the cross hatch square at the center of the star instead of cutting the star in half through the star point.
Topographical maps are fun to quilt.
The wavy line doesn’t have to be a cross hatch. It can be a giant zig zag and that looks great too!
