Quarantine Quilt Challenge Week 10
For those of you just joining in, the instructions and cutting directions for the rest of the quilt can be found at the following links:
Notes: When cutting your fabric, remember to keep the line of your ruler ON the fabric, not on the cutting mat. Those threads make a difference.
This week’s tutorial is simple and to the point. Follow the directions at Quilter’s Cache. As you can see I mismarked one of my lines. I caught it before i cut it.
I like to lay out my pieces so that I can see what’s next and to make sure I have all of my pieces.
Once the flying geese and HST units are made, I lay them out again and sew them into rows.
Once the rows are sewn together, you have a beautiful Coronation block.
As always, if you have any questions, please feel free to contact me either through the comments or if you’re in the Texas Quilter’s Group, I’m the Admin and you can send me a message.
In other news…
I have had several more finishes this last week. My May UFO, the Farmer’s Wife Pony Club was the largest of the lot and I can’t tell you what a relief it is to have that one out of the way. I still need to assemble the backing for it, and then it will be off to the longarmer.
I also fully completed “Slice of Summer”:
Finished the “Liberty Waves” top:
And finished my flying geese top, “Onward & Upward”:
What I’m listening to…
This week it’s been the Harry Potter series on Audible. There’s too much chaos in the world and it’s brought on my anxiety so I need something to help me zone out. I’m also in the planning stages of the Project of Doom – a Harry Potter quilt. I finished books 1 & 2 and am not quite halfway through Book 3. I listened to them years and years ago while my husband and I were truck drivers. Now that I’m making this quilt for Junior I want to verify details for the blocks.
