In the past week, I've finished six WIP/UFO's, attached the binding to six quilts, and finished the binding on two of them. And I managed to work on a few "secret" projects.
So...wanna see what I've been up to? First up... here's my Kaffe Japanese Chrysanthemum One Block Wonder.
I must have played with the layout of this darn quilt for close to two weeks before finishing it up this week. My dear friend Donna was kind enough to do a rush quilting on it and I finished the binding Sunday night.
Next up is a little quilt I started probably two years ago and just never got around to finishing it. Which is really sad because it was 90% done and just needed a little more blanket stitching. The pattern is from one of Kim Diehl's books...which one I can't remember at the moment.
Here's my version of the granny square craze which I started a few weeks ago. The blocks were made using 1 1/2" squares. After they were all done I wasn't terribly pleased with them so they sat around for a while. But not wanting them to become another UFO I forced myself to finish the project and now I'm glad I did because I think it's kinda cute. I call it my "Olive Oil" quilt. I imagine that the fabrics used came from her old dresses...dorky I know.
Wasn't Rooibos (below) part of Pink Pincushion's Year of Small Projects last year? That's how long this one has been sitting around. And all that it needed done to it? Trim it down to size and add the already pieced border!
*hanging my head in shame*
Here's a quilt top I made from 10" squares. What did this one need? Borders...that's all. I really really really HATE sewing on borders. But hey...it's done now!
And finally...my Ocean Waves quilt top is completed!!! I am beyond thrilled to have this one done. The half square triangles finish at 1 3/4". While it doesn't have as many pieces as my Elizabeth Crockett quilt, it has a respectable 2,951 pieces. Now all I need to do is find someone up for the challenge of custom quilting it.
Now I'm off to bed because my husband just informed me it's almost 3 AM. Tomorrow's plan? BINDING!
P.S. In my absence my blog has turned 3 so in honor of that I'll post a new giveaway in the next day or two...or three...LOL.
