my creative pursuits with quilts and knits

March Update

It’s Spring Break, so I have time to quilt, and to blog about it!  Will wonders ever cease?!?

imageFirst up is the Star Light Star Bright QAL.  The weekly assignments were the center star, the side chevrons, and the corner units.  I have 3 blocks assembled to that stage.  To enter the prize drawing, your top must be complete by April 2nd.  I don’t think I will make it by that deadline, but it is a pretty block, and I am happy with the tan background.

Another fun project is nearing completion.  This is the Glorified Nine Patch from a class with John Flynn.  I am finally sewing the rows together and thinking about quilting designs.  I have a recipient in mind, with a potential presentation date at the end of March.  Let’s hope I get a lot of quilting done this week!
