New Quilt Started

A friend of Nancy's gave her six charm square bundles of Andover fabric. Nancy shared three of the bundles with me...and issued a quilting challenge. Each of us is going to make a quilt using the fabrics (the bundles are all from one design line) and see what the other creates.

I am doing my favorite thing...chain piecing. I chose a quilt design which calls for 420 half square triangles. Unfortunately it also means my least favorite thing: squaring up (Yuck!).

Obba logic: If I can't see Mom, Mom see can't see me, so she won't make me move.

I did a little bit of sewing this weekend (and a lot of quilt shopping).

I am finally caught up with my civil war blocks. I really like how these turned out. I thought about putting a handle on the basket. Cut a bias strip and hand applique??? Hmmm...that thought lasted about two seconds.

The Auburn Quilt Show was this past weekend, they had some fantastic quilts there. What did I take pictures of?

Quilt designs. I think I can do the whirls above.

This one might be a challenge, but with a LOT of practice, maybe.

I can definitely do this... I really liked this quilt also.

No way can I do this. Ever. Wouldn't even try.

I wish you could have seen this quilt in person. It was beautiful. I could barely get a picture with all the people admiring it.

My pictures do not so this quilt justice. And I forgot to take a picture of the information card so I can not tell you who made it.

Such beautiful quilts and quilting...then there are mine... At least they are done (except for the binding).
