On The Boardwalk designed by Anne Wiens, Sweetgrass Creative Designs and published by Quiltwoman dot com. Most of the sewing was done today and I put the two long side borders on after supper. The backing is made and the binding seamed. I did not really follow the designers directions and strip pieced a good bit of this. It made more "sense" to me to do it that way, but someone else would be fine with the original action plan. It finished about 45 x 58 inches.
I used just two Debbie Mumm fabrics in the strips. and I know this reads as a "tan" print from across our living room. The green cornerstones and border is also a Debbie Mumm print but some stuff I had leftover from making appliance covers for the kitchen. The Mumm fabric was donated to my quilt group from an area quilter. Since there was a good bit of it, I spread it all out at our meeting site and issued the challenge---use it to make a quilt for the kids.
Here is the stuff up closer. The yellow, green and pink just sort of blend together in that long shot.
So what to do tomorrow? I may cut out a version of the other pattern I linked to the other day. On Parade. I DO like a combo of fabric that I stumbled upon the other day and think it would be fun to play with. My pattern shows it with the yellow background version, in the smaller thumbnail.
OR I could do the friendship block (shhhhh) or dig around in the Christmas fabric bin to see what I can find to make a pillow case to put Kristine's tree skirt in. I did not have time to whip one up before I sent the skirt on earlier this week and told her I "owed" her one. I am not quite ready to switch out machines again though. I have 5 machines and do like to rotate using them so this time it was the Kenmore electronic slant- a-matic. It has a nice stitch even if I do miss a few of the features of the other machines---like being able to change the needle position. If I am going to make another top, I want to complete it on the same machine.
I'll see how it shakes out in the morning after I read through that pattern, LOL. For now I will content myself with the fact that I did reach another short term goal and my Belles fabric challenge is completed with a few days to spare. Can I get a woohoo? LOL
