Little by little, I'm building up quilting-steam again
and thank everyone for the well-wishes sent my way.
(Med#5 seems to be working without causing too many ill side-effects,
and thankfully, all test results were negative or benign.)
I know I'm feeling better, as I have even,
over the course of the last couple of weeks,
done some meandering!
Here is Bev's quilt that I got to meander over:
(warning - book store head-turn :)
(I don't know why it won't turn right-side up - sorry!)
Bev is in a quilt guild and signed up for the guild's UFQ challenge.
To list and sequentially number six Unfinished quilts.
Each month of the six month challenge,
a die would be rolled and the number that turned up
would specify the quilt that would be the next month's
challenge to finish.
She said: that of course, the first month the die was rolled,
her challenge was to finish a quilt that was just blocks in a box!! :)
She had no other fabrics, borders or layout chosen,
just a box of twelve, pieced blocks from a mystery done a few years ago.
She got right to work and found a piece of stash yardage that had barns on it and decided to incorporate that. Then she found a border fabric of roses that worked with her pieced block's fabric colors.
Good choices, weren't they?
Her request to me for quilting was to do anything I wanted,
but asked, please, if I'd not quilt over the barns.
Here are a few of the barns and what I came up with for quilting:
In the pics, you can see how I quilted in the pieced blocks, and in the last two pics, you can see the border's quilting also. The barn fabric itself had just a little foreground design printed, and most of the blocks had clouds printed, so I just added what I thought would be more foreground and scenery.
It was a fun one to quilt and felt good to get back to meandering!
As I finished it up by trimming threads, I remembered:
I think I have a piece of that Barn fabric...somewhere!
Now to just come up with some pieced blocks to go with it! lol
I'm off to look through the stash for barn fabric! :)
Thanks for visiting and
